The weather here has been in the 70's. It's unbelievable weather for August. It is usually 100 this time of year. Cool weather makes it easier for me to feel positive.
Libby: It's great to have clothes that fit great and not too small or tight! I have some that are way to big for me now. Instead of keeping them, I gave them to a mission store. I thought at first I would keep them just in case; then I was like whattttt are you thinking, there is no just in case. I told myself there is no going back there ever! I also think its a great thing to reward yourself with a new hair cut. I do the same. I go spend a lot of money at the mall to get different color of highlights and coloring put in my hair. I usually am really thrifty with my money. The reward makes me feel good and even better about myself. In the past, I would have rewarded myself with food for weight loss. Eating something unhealthy never made me feel good. Crazy I did that, huh?
Ian: That is a lot of calories for early morning. Just try to make up for it the rest of the day. Maybe just eat veggies the rest of the day, so you will not go a lot higher.
Nyda: You are doing terrific!
I hope your headache went away. I had one all night that kept waking me up. It went away awhile ago. I was afraid I would be here work with a bad headache. I used to get migraines and still do once in awhile. An ice cold wash cloth on the back of the neck helps relieve it. You might try that.
Jenn: Looks like you are doing good on your goals. Keep up the great job!
Mel-Mc: I wish I could make myself drink as much water as you do. I need to start focusing on water intake again. Good job!
