    Kim, I imagine today will be your worst day painwise. Take it easy on yourself.

    New low weight 219!

    .5 c. rolled oats
    .75 c. blackberries
    .5 t cinnamon

    Back from church where the sermon topic was "Sinful Fear". Ever think about why despair is a sin? It's because you are not trusting and waiting on God's help. I was thinking about the difference between this journey and previous abortive attempts to change my eating and exercize habits. Well, it's not rocket science. It's because this time I am relying on a "Higher Power". I realize that by not doing everything possible to take care of the physical body God has granted me that I am being ungrateful to him. Yes, my body needs more attention to function well than most people's do. But that is what He in His infinite wisdom has decided is right for me. So, I ask for His help in doing this. I praise His Name for every victory. I seek to continue to take better care of this body so I can serve Him better. Not that He needs me. But I need Him and in serving Him I glorify His Name.

    Smoochies!

    Judy, what's up with your not getting any sleep last night? Did something happen? Are you Ok?

    You got your walk in even exhausted..... our own Blessed Yak!

    I think I'll start laying offerings at your feet.
    Perhaps ,then, my own journey will get back on track and my poor decrepit body will become whole enough again so that I may continue forth with my daily exercises....
    OH BLESSED YAK... I BESEECH YOU!


    Whatever happened I sure hope it isn't health oriented..... we need you around for the next 100 years or so.... or for a COMBINED COMMUNITY WEIGHT LOSS of 1 MILLIION POUNDS. Which should take you well into the next century, Judy. lol

    Laura, I've never had a Long Island Iced Tea... somehow all those different liquers in one glass seems too much like a frat part
    concoction to taste anywhere NEAR good enough to drink.

    I'll stick with my shaken Marguritas, now THOSE are the bomb!

    Woooo Kathy, great figure. 201.6. Your doing good.


    Well, I was a good kid and went to church. Mainly cause all my friends are there. Our pastor is out of town so we had a visiting one, that's why I didn't want to go. And guess what happened while I was there. For the last song, after his semi-boring sermon, we all stood up, well, I tried to and FELL. I was so embarrassed. This girl 2 seats over from me caught me before I landed on the floor. My leg gave out and falling I twisted my foot and wow, the pain. Im' fine now, just a tad sore. What a cluts I was. Hope that don't happen any more.


    For lunch we had one of those meals in a package you just heat up. 210 calories. It had lots of broccoli and carrots and shrimp in it. So I'm good for today so far.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -186; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Hi Kim it was something on the news last night that shook me up and had my mind racing all night . it made me sad and for some reason my mind would not let it go ..
    I will sleep better I hope tonight. not sick or anything like that unless being emotional over something I had zero control over is a sickness maybe it is
    Hugs Judy:)
