Thank you for the kind words.

It gets so hard sometimes,
I love the first two lines of this song.
God, I'm down here on my knees
Cause it's the last place left to fall
Things were tough at work, in fighting at home and dieting without results and I guess PMS. Maybe a little pity party for one. But, thanks for not letting me get down. I really appreciate it.

I am doing better. Saturday, I got up at 5:30am, got to the lake at 6:30 and walked the entire lake 6.4 miles. I felt like this was just what I needed (No not the pain) but the accomplishment. I was really proud. I paused at the end to enjoy the beauty of the lake. Then of course that is at 3.2 miles, then you have to walk back. The euphoria didn't quite last another 3.2 miles. :)  But, later in the day as I rested in the pool. I reflected back and was so darn happy.  I have been sticking to my diet and not falling off at all. I have been entering into My Fitnesspal. com everything I eat.

Sunday was really warm and I spent nearly the entire day in the pool. I even did workouts in the pool. Gosh it was nice. I had a rough night sleep it was so warm. Don't ask me why I didn't turn on the AC. I have no idea why I didn't. But, tonight, I will as it will be as warm if not warmer.

STS , I am down another 1 lb. But, TOM is here and so I cant complain. That makes a total of 5lbs since we started.*****OOOOPS...I am down 6 lbs. hehe.
Good luck to all the other homies in the STS.
God, I'm down here on my knees
Cause it's the last place left to fall
Beggin' for another chance
If there's any chance at all
That you might still be listenin'
Lovin' and forgivin' guys like me
I've spent my whole life gettin' it all wrong
And I sure could use your help cause from now on

I wanna be a good man
A 'do like I should' man
I wanna be the kind of man the mirror likes to see
I wanna be a strong man
And admit that I was wrong, man
God I'm asking you to come change me
To the man I wanna be

There's anyway for her and me to make another start
Could you see what you could do
To put some love back in her heart
Cuz' it going to take a miracle
After all I've done to really make her see

That I wanna be a statement
I wanna be a great man
I wanna be the kind of man that she shes in her dreams
God, I wanna be your man
And I wanna be her man
God, I only hope she still believes
In the man I wanna be

Well, I know this late at night that talk is cheap
Lord, don't give up on me

I wanna be a givin' man
I wanna really start livin' man
God, I'm asking you to come change me
To the man I wanna be

amazing lyrics written by Brett James for Chris Young. He also wrote "Jesus take the wheel" for Carrie Underwood. Such poetic meaningful prayer songs.

Hang in there, Gracie.

There was a song by Ray Boltz where the words were from God "I won't let you fall any farther than your knees" - great song and that's all I can remember of it but I remembered it because it is such a beautiful thought. You will be OK.

Glad you got out and enjoyed your walk. Congrats on your progress. One pound at a time....

Love those lyrics. I'm going to have to check out that song. It's beautiful!

Losing while it's TOM? Impressive, I always gain like 4 lbs. for a week. I so ignore the scale that week.

Wow! A Lake to walk around - what a joy!

I'm with Debbi on the losing at TOM - I always enjoy a ridiculous three pound water bloat. Of course, it's pretty fun to automatically "lose" three pounds the following week!
