Good Morning, Everyone! A brand new month!

So DH wanted to go to this farm place today for lunch. It's a farm to table. BUFFET! This man is killing me. You would think they would have a salad since it's Summer. They also have a menu but I'm not sure if they have that at lunch or only the buffet. Not a lot of info online about it. Again, we'll see. DH also has a cooler with ice so he can bring back some stuff. They have fresh sausage, all kinds of beans, etc. When we get back home this afternoon, my friend and I are going to the gym. I have really enjoyed going swimming at the gym. It really feels like a treat for myself, like a spa type thing. Or maybe like a recharge your system type thing. Know what I mean? It's not like I'm actually working out.

Last night I added on: Tamilee Webb's Total Body Stretch (standing)
This Morning: Oxycise in the Office 2

Calories for yesterday: 1540 +
Weigh In: 179.2 (3rd day)
No Change

I ate quite a few peanuts, when I had my weak moment the other day. I have always known that peanuts were not good for my system, for some reason. It takes a couple days to get back to normal. My Mom could eat peanuts and have to go to the restroom but I feel constipated. Way TMI, but the truth.

Have a wonderful day!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

July 1

Proverbs 2:10-11, 20
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

Knowing what is right and doing what is right are completely different matters. Jessica knew she should lose weight, and she knew the way to do that was to cut back on what she was eating. The problem was that she didn't want to give up any of the foods she loved. She just wasn't committed enough. A friend of hers told her that she had all the knowledge she needed in her head, but none of it was in her heart. The reason she couldn't stick to her diet was that she didn't want to lose weight badly enough. When we find ourselves lacking the proper desire, we need to turn to the Lord, to ask His strength for doing what we know to be right.

Today's thought: Dieting is more than a matter of the mind. It's a matter o f the heart!

Happy July!

Ideal - omg!! That is so awesome! I'm so happy for you. WTG.

I just checked and I lost 5 lbs in June. Not great, but better than not losing anything. I still have 22 to go, 5 lbs a month seems pretty doable, but I want it done faster. Not sure if I'm willing to put the extra in to go faster.

Thank you Diana for starting the thread this month!

Ideal what an awesome feeling to be so close to goal

msgooch....wow 5lbs a month is awesome

WI this am down to 160.4 and I even had thin crust veggie pizza last night.......what is wrong with my body? Sheesh It makes me crazy. So I started a new 'Log Book" today to record my weight and feelings. I started one back in October when I first started this journey and it has some pretty good and mean thoughts LOL. I think mentally I am in a better place even though I am no longer really losing weight I am exercising regularly (except for last week missed 2 days because of my heel) I have a more positive outlook regarding weight loss .... so I am giving myself

to all the rest of the chickies as you check in this month

Good Morning, Everyone!

Tonight our church will have a cookout. The church behind us is putting on a fireworks display on our property. It's nice that we can come together like this, they have tons of money to pay for a professional fireworks display, but no property. We have property but no money for fireworks. I went last year and it was the best fireworks show I have ever been to. Anyways, I have decided to bring a grilled chicken salad. Hoping to stay on track as much as possible. Wish me luck.

It was late and I forgot to stretch last night.
Nothing for this morning

Calories for yesterday: Unknown
Weigh In: 179.6
Up: .4

Have a great day!

Today's devotion speaks very loudly to me.

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

July 2

Luke 21:19
'In your patience possess ye your souls.'

Arlene asked the Lord for just a little more patience. She looked at the clock. She had eaten lunch just three hours before, and now her stomach was telling her to eat again. She knew she really couldn't need food again so soon. She concentrated all her attention on the project she was working on and repeated again and again that she wasn't hungry. Before she knew it, she was finishing the project, her hunger had died down, and it was almost five o'clock. Quickly, Arlene thanked God for helping her hang on awhile. It wasn't nearly as hard to get by with God giving her strength and support.

Today's thought: Decide to control your stomach instead of letting it control you!

Good afternoon to all!
WI still same 160.4
Just got back from our 5 mile hike/walk it was a beautiful morning, temp in the mid 50's for the entire hike. It really is a great park that have soft trails made of dirt and pine needles. We got so close on two separate occasions to baby deer just eating I even took pictures of them. This afternoon we are having a BBQ at my sisters with my mom. She wanted to get together for the 4th of July but is not comfortable around people she does not know.

So I made another batch of cold brew coffee, truly this may be addicting with unsweetened almond milk and two packets of stevia in the raw. Of course I am still drinking lots of water. When I started the new job last week I warned them I drink a lot of water and since my desk in in the room that is also the 'unofficial' break room for the crew of guys before they leave (this is a gutter installation company) The crew saw me bring in a gallon of water and then surprised the next day when I brought in a second gallon and put the empty on back in my bag. This does not count the glasses of water I drink before I left in the morning

Ok off to make a salad to contribute to the picnic
