To top it off, my daughter is coming again this weekend and bringing her boyfriend along. And . . . the following weekend they are coming again, as it is our family reunion and pot luck. My husband did buy some fruits and stuff, which were nice, for our card night with my folks. He even surprised me with some flowers he picked by the roadside. I love my daughter and her boyfriend but I am still not back in the habit of doing things the way I was before she came and now this. I have gained back about 12 lbs. now, but some of that could be menstrual related or because it was evening with clothes on when I weighed but still, I have gained back at least ten. I have not been walking or working out either. I am finding it too hot and too many mosquitoes and people throw rocks on you when they drive by and I just don't have the time. I can't keep up with everything as it is, yet, when I read my napolean hill thought for the day it seemed to speak directly to me on this subject. It said, " IF YOU HAVEN’T THE WILLPOWER TO KEEP YOUR PHYSICAL BODY IN REPAIR, YOU ALSO LACK THE POWER OF WILL TO MAINTAIN A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE IN OTHER IMPORTANT CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CONTROL YOUR LIFE.

A Positive Mental Attitude is not developed in a single decision to replace negative thoughts with their positive equivalent. It is a sustained commitment that requires personal discipline, the same kind of discipline that is required to stay in shape and maintain your physical health. It is a commitment that must be reinforced daily, or it is soon forgotten and cast upon the scrap heap of good intentions. When you take charge of your fate and determine that you will live positively in every aspect of your life-physical and mental-you will receive an extra benefit. Positive physical conditioning will reinforce your Positive Mental Attitude, and your positive attitude will help you stay in better physical condition." so how perfect is that?! I know what I need to do, I just don't seem to have the mindset anymore. I lost it. I need to get my groove back.

7 lb. Setback :(  My daughter has gone back to school. The three weeks she spent here has cost me dearly. I am not saying it was her fault, but I did tell her I was doing certain things and did not want her disrupting my routine and she was highly uncooperative. We were fighting the first week and it was awful. I finally gave in and reverted to my old ways of cooking and eating. Now I can't get back into the habit of considering a yogurt a meal. I made a huge pot of goulash yesterday and had two helpings. I need to get back on track. I have a good friend who sent me some hypnosis CD's and another who set me up in a health business including weight loss patches that have a plastic ball in the middle to apply pressure to the pressure point like acupuncture without the needles. I'm wearing the first patch today. Each day it goes on a new pressure point. So far no reaction to the adhesive, which I'm highly allergic to. So, instead of working toward my 270 picture, I am now working on getting back to the 280 mark. Setbacks happen, it's how you deal with them that counts. If I piss and moan and keep eating, then it will break me, but if I just start back up again as best I can, maybe not to the point where yogurt is a meal yet, but start out slow like before and decrease daily, I think I can get back on track again. Support from my friends is all I need. I thank Yawheh for my Beliefnet friends! I love you all.Kiss

280 lbs Goal I reached the 280 lbs. goal on July 6, 2008. Now I had my daughter take a pic of me as I have been doing a new pic for every ten pounds to show the difference - which doesn't look like much until you go from one to the next and then it does show. Anyway, here is my 280 pic and now I am working toward the 270 goal so you will see my 270 pic here as soon as I am able to reach that new goal! I always wear the same clothes for the pic so you can tell the difference as different clothes can make you look different. I went from a 5X to a 3X now.
