    Morning Aus! Have had a wonderful weekend so I'm not concerned about all I ate. Will be back on program today. Am still staying with my friend so not sure what our breakfast will be. Just wanted to check in and read the posts that I have missed. Back to reality tomorrow. Fall semester begins and it will be one crazy week. First home football game is Thurs. night. I love fall and football, but oh my, where did summer go??

    Have a great day everyone.

    SharonNVirginia replied to SharonNVirginia's response:
    Back from church.

    The sermon was on King Solomon's downfall. King Solomon began departing from the Lord one little step at a time. God said make no alliances with Egypt. Solomon made an alliance with Egypt. God said Israel's kings should not build up horses, wealth or wives. Gradually Solomon did all three. Solomon spent 7 years building the Lord's temple but he spent 15 years building his own house.

    Proportion. Keeping things in proper proportion is so important in life. Correction. When you see that you are off course, you need to chart a course correction and see it through. Rules. Having rules and obeying them keep you from needing a course correction. Solomon was granted wisdom by God but he didn't use the wisdom to guide his own life. Let's do better that King Solomon.

    Have a set of rules to keep you on course. Obey them.

    When you don't obey them, set a correction course.

    Remind yourself of your goals and frequently review your progress, of pounds discarded and habits changed.

    Lunch:
    tossed salad
    3 oz. chicken breast
    .25 C creamy french yogurt dressing.
    10 pecan halves

    I don't think I praise "the nut habit" enough. I picked it up from "You On a Diet" morning and afternoon snacks about .5 oz. nuts. The nuts cut my hunger until the next meal. I get hungry but not ravenous. I think they are a big contributor to my success. I am losing slowly and want to be because I don't want to have folds of loose skin left over when I am done. I also don't want to think of this way of eating as something temporary. I look at how Judy and Debbie eat as being my future. I am never going back to Big Mac Value Meals and Coca-colas. I like the way I feel now too much to risk losing it.

    Smoochies,

    Sharon,
    Did you get the wisdom from him too! I found what you wrote really comforting in so many ways. Do you know where that part is in the bible? I would like to read it myself today.
    No worries if to hard to find.

    I get ravenous hungry but its do to some meds that i'm back on to maintain my mental health. They are what were a major force in my huge weight gain. I already drink tons of water so much so that sometimes I over drink it and can flush out my system of all the good things.

    afternoon lunch:
    6 oz. raspberries (o heck yay)
    1/5 of a sugar free angel food cake (only 70 calories)
    1 hazelnut/kaluha non alcohol ff decaeif latte

    I'm one hurting machine so I put on my tens unit for knees and back. GRRRR.... but I did it.
    I shopped pushing extremely heavy cart for an hour and a half.
    BUT I DID IT! YAYAYAYAY

    Bad news, must confess. Had 2 1.5" home made brownies that were to die for. Hubby made them, but these were the most perfect consistency ever. Better not do this often or I will die from eating them literally. This is why I write or confess my food here even when it is terrible. I know that I have to write my food so it so often keeps my food healthy so I won't embarrass myself.

    I understand that Laura I post all my slips or planned indulgences because being honest with ourselves is best for continuing the journey/
    I baked a banana bread today myself and had a thin slice
    it was surprisingly good even though I changed the recipe to include ground flax seeds it is rather heavy but very moist and pretty tasty too ///
