This morning we mowed the lawn. Then we went to get some propane for the grill and to the store to get a few things. When we got home we had to set the tables up in the back yard and finish some last minute cleaning. Our guests, my husband co-workers and friends, starting arriving at 1:30. My husband grilled chicken links, pork links, beef links and beef patties. I warmed some beans. Someone brought macaroni salad. We also had green salad, chips, soda, beer, cake and ice cream. I ate one hamburger, some beans, a piece of cake, and a little ice cream. I somehow managed to stay within my calorie range. I guess it helped that I mowed the lawn. No weight loss on the scale today but I didn't go up either.
Current weight: 247.7

I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. I didn't run or jog like I did yesterday. I was a little tired. I actually wanted to cut the walk short but I felt that I would be cheating myself. So I kept going. I was down a little on the scale this morning. That was comforting. Next Monday is my husband and my day off from work. My husband told me this morning that we should walk and then go to breakfast. I said you are killing me! He said I am only trying to spend some time with you. I said we can spend time together putting up those curtains we bought months ago. He said okay, no breakfast. My husband and I spend more time together than any other couple I know. He drives me to the bus stop in the mornings, picks me up after work, and then we go home. The only time we are not together is when I go to Bible Study, and work. We even go to the store together. Why he feels like we need to go out to breakfast, lunch or dinner, to spend time together, is beyond me. That's what blew us up. Or should I say that's what blew me up. My husband was already close to 300 pounds, if not over, when I met him. I was wearing a nice size 20. It was bigger than I wanted but I was comfortable. After being with my husband/boyfriend for a few years, I gained 80 pounds. After we got married, I gained more. Now, I am close to the weight I was when I met him, 234 pounds, and I have no intentions of not making it. I'm going to weigh less than that.
Current weight: 247.8

I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. I actually jogged/ran a little. I ran half a block to get the light because it was about to turn green for me and I didn't want to miss it. Then I ran to get in front of this guy who was walking by a lady in a wheelchair. Once I passed them, I ran the whole block. It was a little warm today but much cooler than yesterday, a little over 80 degrees. I was very disappointed with the scale this morning. My husband and my mother say it is temporary weight gain. So I decided to walk a little farther and faster to see if I could get rid of this temporary weight gain real quick. I don't know if my husband will be feeling up to walking this evening. If he doesn't walk, I'm getting out my jump rope. My knees are much stronger lately and I could use a different type of exercise. On a mission!

I made it out for my lunch time walk. 3.4 miles. It was hotter today, 102 degrees. I tried to walk in the shade as much as possible. By the time I got back, the back of my shirt was wet. The front didn't get too bad because I put paper towels in my bra to catch the sweat. The paper towels were soaked. We didn't walk yesterday after work and we probably won't walk today. My husband told me earlier he was in a little pain. I told him it was probably because the kidney stone was moving. The doctor said it was small enough for him to pass it, but he didn't say how long these things usually take. I was down on the scale this morning. I got 5 more pounds before I can join the 100 club! Tomorrow is my birthday so I am taking off of work. I'm not doing anything special. I just don't want to spend my birthday at work. My husband is taking off with me and I told him I could just spend the day cleaning the house. We are having company this Saturday. My husband has invited his co workers over, all women. A few of them bring their boyfriends/husbands, but most of them come alone. He has also invited some old friends of his. He tells me I can invite my co workers, but I don't want to see them at work. Why would I invite them over? Anyway, he wants to take me to breakfast and dinner. Really? And mess up all my great progress? I don't think so. I'm at a point now where I am feeling really good about my program and if I just keep following through, even if it means eating the same thing every week, then I can redeem myself. I have only lost 30 pounds this year. I'm trying to push in these final months to get off as much as I can.
