Good morning beach beauties!

I just wrote a long and eloquent post, and then somehow deleted it before I posted it!! Arrrrgghhhhh!!!!! So I'm going to try again, if I can remember what I had said.

Marcie, you must have been reading my mind again! You said "Relish in the thoughts that you are happier, healthier and don't eat like you used to, your clothes fit differently and you weigh a little less"....and that is exactly what I've been saying to myself these past couple of weeks. I really do love this new WOL.

ZuzeQ, remember that your weight can fluctuate from day to day, and that's why it's recommended that you don't weigh yourself every day, and if you do, to not worry too much about the numbers going up and down slightly. If you really did overdo it a little with the nuts (as I've done on more than one occasion ), I've found that drinking a lot of water the next day really helps.

Franny, I just posted a response to you on your happy birthday thread. I'm so happy that you enjoyed your birthday celebration, it sounds wonderful! And what you just wrote about not being upset with yourself about what you ate yesterday because you made the conscious decision to do exactly what I wrote to you in the other thread! Wow, great minds really do think alike!!

Wendy, good for you for not beating yourself up over a couple of slips! That accomplishes nothing other than to make you feel even worse about yourself. It sounds like you have a good plan for the next couple of weeks, planning ahead is a very smart idea! Have a nice time!

I went shopping yesterday and bought a pedometer. Now I just have to figure out how to set it and how to use it!

Well, the "dog days of summer" are here! It's been hot and humid and sticky the past few days...we've been seeing the hottest days of the summer. I hate to admit it, but I really am looking forward to the fall! Fall is my favorite season. When I was shopping yesterday I was looking at all of the cute fall and winter clothes in "normal" sizes, and even though I can't fit into them yet, I promised myself that in the not too distant future I will be able to shop for those cute clothes to my heart's content!
