Day 8 - 7 Month Focus

Thank you so much for your comments and prayers for my Sister In Law. I spoke with her yesterday, she has a great attitude!  One of the things she said that impressed me so much is, even though the doctors says, There is no hope, she says, "I hate statistics, I have hope, I want to beat this!" Don't know if it's possible, but with God anything is!! So I'm believing with her!! We need a miracle!!

Yesterday was not so hot! It was a rest day, so no exercise. However, I did walk around my office building and got in extra steps where I could. Logged in 5677 steps for the day. Everything else was done, except I missed my goal of 1700 calories. I logged in 1897. Darn Easter's getting the best of me. Normally we don't have it around the house, but with the grand babies here, we have little treats for them. Ahem....

OK I'm having fights with my dinner napkins. When I was 274 pounds. I had the best napkin trapper ever!!! To keep track of them, I would always wedge my napkin between my large protruding tummy and my leg. It was awesome! My tummy was sooo big, at times, I would have to really search for my napkins, as they would get lost. So recently I could not figure out why I was having so much trouble keeping track of them. Most of the time, my dinner napkins, are found on the floor. Last night, I tried to put my napkin in my napkin vault and I found that I don't have much of one anymore. My tummy just does not hang over my legs like it used to. Woo hoo!!!

Now I have to retrain myself to sit like a lady and simply lay my napkin over my leg. Weird!

Anyway, are you finding you have to retrain yourself now that you are thinner?

Keep focused!!!


  1. My dinner napkins are in the floor too :)
    Love your SIL attitude! prayers!

  2. awesome NSV! Its always nice to have little moments like that! God bless her!! Beautiful attitude

  3. Ah, so sorry about your SIL. I hope she beats it too - God is bigger than any diagnosis! ((( hugs ))) And sorry your napkin keeps dropping - that's a great thing!!!

  4. I just read about your SIL, I am so sorry. I will be praying for her! And retraining for skinny is cool. The best thing that has happened to me in regards to food and eating is that when food no longer hits my chest or falls straight to my lap and onto that napkin I now lay in my I get why you lay the napkin in your lap as opposed to shoving it into your

  5. The same thing happened to me the other night at the banquet dinner. My napkin actually fell on the floor because I don't have as much tummy to keep it in place. It's a good problem to have!!!

    As for that Easter Candy...get rid of it!!! You don't need the temptation. You're doing so great. Keep it up sweet friend.

    Love you!!!

  6. Sorry to hear about sister in law. In case you were wondering, it is possible to continue to lose weight when you are dealing with a loved one dying. I went from taking my life one week at a time to one day at a time. That's about all you can do.

    I'll be thinking of you.
