I Did It!!! :)

This isn't great, but it is my 1st Painting.  Luckily they get better with each one I paint!

Hey Ya'll,

I can't believe it, I finally broke my all time low since my Surgery by 1.2 lbs!!!  I am now only 3.5 lbs away from the 160's!!!  I am getting so close that I can now taste it.  I haven't been in the 160's for YEARS!!  I have been fighting my band too much, rather than working it like I should have been.  But that was in the past.  I am going to do my best to eat like I should have been eating all along!  If I do, then I should have no problem losing another 25-30 lbs by mid September, right???  That would be an average of 1 lb a week, which should be doable???  That would put me in the lower 140's and close to goal, if not there!  I currently have my goal set at 130 lbs.  But I may not want to go that low, only time will tell.  But I think that if I can get around 140 lbs, I will be very happy!!  :) :) :)

Part of my problem has been that I like to GRAZE!  Especially at night.  And I like to have something to either chew or suck on.  And I have had so much trouble finding anything that is either really low in calories or sugar free, so I end up eating great during the day, then consuming too many calories at night.  But my sweetheart Walt, has found me some sugar free candy while he was in Sacramento yesterday.  And don't tell me that I should be munching on vegetables!  Unfortunately, I am not a vegetable lover!  :(  But half the battle is admitting the problem, the other half (and the hardest) is changing the old habits!  But I vow to do my best!

Nothing else is happening here but tax work, so I will end this for today, I just wanted to shout out my happiness!!  Till next time.....

Aloha My Friends  :)
