Slept in this morning, didn't sleep good at all on trip for some reason. felt great !

Scale was 140.4 this am. Has been bouncing last few weeks 138- 141.... Guess it's time to fess up and change avi --- grrr ;(



Funny story about wedding. We were told it was going to be an outside wedding at someone's house in this small town ( smaller than ours ) and I wore new top and capris and sandals. DH wore a pressed shirt and jeans with boots - he was in the "wedding party".
On the way that morning, we found out it was being held in a church..... I kinda panicked and thought I was underdressed . :0
The preacher was in torn jeans, the maid of honor was in stretch black capris, some of the people that showed up ( it was very small) were in shorts !!!
I was OVER dressed ! lol I thought it was funny, it turned out nice though

That's funny being over-dressed in your casual clothes!
Sleeping in your own bed is so much better!

Most likely the wine shot your blood sugar levels out... alcohol is not diet-friendly. But 5 days & you should be clear of it.

Now that we are home, doing laundry and resting after a super hot shower Felt great, for some reason my shower feels so good when I get home from somewhere ;0

Will catch up later, gonna chill and watch some TV with DH . Have a great night !
Glad you to hear you had a great time! Can't believe you stayed on track...my vacation is scheduled for June and I know I'm going to be eating 'junk' off the chain!

Well, I signed up for several 1/2 shifts in the next 6 weeks, and I didn't realize she had given me mon -- you sign up and she splits the shifts between everyone who wants them......... well, she needed the whole 12hrs covered, I only wanted 1/2 of it. Oh well, I told her Yes, I'll work the extra shift ~~~ that will be 7 in a row !!! The extra money will be nice, but I will be pooped. And, we had planned to go and do some shopping that day and DH has 2 Dr's appts...... guess he'll go alone.

Glad she reminded me. Didn't realize she put out the new schedule while I was off... I would have left her high and dry :-0

Honesty :

Not feeling like dieting. Cooked a lot yesterday and today and have plans to cook more tomorrow.
DH made a brisket,sausage, and ribs on grill today and brought his mother from Assisted Living to stay all day.
I cooked comfort food like I used to and enjoyed it.

DS1 got a job close to here and will be staying with us starting Monday for 4 days each week for his 1st month instead of driving several hours a day to and from his house. They will be moving closer.
I will cook so there will be food here for him - and for DH and I while we work.

Hope you all are having a good weekend.

A dear friend at work lost her nephew in a motorcycle accident today ~~ prayers for Sherry and her family appreciated.
Thanks friends

Thanks so much for the prayers..... y'all are the best !

Woke up nauseous and with a headache.......carbs were great for a day or so but just don't agree with me ;/

Luckily I have veggie soup and meatballs frozen in fridge and lots of produce and lunch meat/string cheese already in fridge

There will be tons of food for DH and DS to eat though !

Hope you all have a great Sunday !

Cooked lots of food for next few days for DH and DS . Stayed on plan all day and feeling better !

Finally got up the courage to try another church. Last few years I have tried several churches - so uncomfortable to walk in by yourself. Hate that .....;/

Service was very good and it was a really laid back atmosphere. Very casual ~~DH did not go, he really has a bad taste about "church" and people's attitudes. We have had people be very sarcastic in the past when we went all the time with the kids and we would miss a week or two ( out of town ) -- catty remarks really set him off. He feels people need to focus on their personal relationship with God , not who's there or what they are wearing, when they can help with the grounds, etc........ anyway, he apologized for not going with me . It's ok.......

Snack was berries with HWC. YUMMY

Hope you all had a good weekend. Starting my 7 shifts tomorrow ~~ just gonna suck it up and get it over with

Hoping today is better ~~ I had only slept 2 1/2 hours before shift yesterday so that didn't help things.
Slept good last night. I was exhausted !

Greek yogurt
cheese stick
8 grapes
3 celery sticks with pb
5 meatballs with ranch
i hb egg

That's all I can think of....... it was unbelievable ! 139.6 this morning.

have a blessed day everyone !

So glad you made it to church. Sounds like it was a good one too. Hope your dh will give it a try. That's the thing about churches... they're full of people that aren't perfect! I have to remind myself of that when someone says something really ignorant to me... they're making conversation & don't know how it sounds... some of us are just not that great with words. God's not finished with any of us yet... PTL!
Hope your work - week goes well this time & you can see God's blessing in your daily work.

thanks for the prayers Debby and Gail

Yesterday was super busy from start to finish ! What a week !

Stayed on plan food wise, but was super hungry all day...... and of course they were all eating all around me. ;/

Weight today 139.2 - but (tmi) I haven't been potty for 3 days. Probably stress..

Can't believe I still have 4 to go . I'm pretty tired already ( she says as she tries to wake up )

Super humid here. The air feels 'heavy" and miserable. Gonna be one long hot 6 months or so.. not a fan of summer at all except when I'm out in the water or on the boat !!

Have a great day. Need more coffeeeeeeeeeeeee

Laura, if you eat some green leafy salad greens and drink water, you should be able to go potty very soon. That is the worst feeling so I emphathize with you!
