    Judy, I'm so proud of you. You are here every single day. Wow!

    my weigh in was 186 this morning.

    Steph, i'm ducking. ha ha ha!

    Keet, one time my doctor told me that not everyone can eat breakfast. We are all different. So that's not a big sin to skip breakfast.

    Be back when I can. Going out to celebrate today with 53 years married to the same fella. ha ha.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Don't live life comparing yourself to everyone else.
    God has created you to be you and you are free to be you.

    Hi all!

    Congrats on the 53 married years, Aus!! Enjoy your special day.

    Breakfast: 1/2 old fashioned oatmeal, blueberries, walnuts, ff milk, black coffee
    Lunch: 1 C homemade chicken and rice soup
    Snack: apple

    Exercise will be walking across campus. Am visiting sister at rehab place after work so just can't fit it all in!!

    I can't imagine not having breakfast. I'm starving by the morning. I don't eat anything after my evening meal which is usually around 6pm so I'm ready for food when I get up!!!

    Keet,

    You could try a dry whole wheat toast and a glass of milk, great for nausea in the morning, avoid water first thing.

    If I miss breakfast, I am more hungry through out my day.

    Get better Steph

    Rachel,

    I hate my tread mill, but it is great during the cold months of the year, helps me not to get sick, but I just don't enjoy it. 40 minutes is a good 3 miles. I walk 3.5 miles in like a hour, up and down hills, at a pretty good pace. So that is really good Rachael. You keey it up. Steph

    I got a journal and wrote down all the things, I want to change about myself, all the things I love about myself, and why I should never give up on myself. I wrote about why it is important to take care of me and see to others I love as well. I am keeping it in my purse for encouragement.

    So if I have a bad day, I can remember what I have worked at, and why. So I don't let myself down easy and go back to bad habits. I think if we want change bad enough we can make it happen. But it truly starts with us and our attitude.

    I am the worlds worst at letting others ruin my day, or there negativity impact how I feel. I am in charge now of all that. I am putting the ole Step behind me, and I am going to remember my goals and that the Lord loves me!

    Time to take better care of MOM! Steph
