Good morning from Galveston

Good morning from Galveston

Beautiful sunrise shot (courtesy Galveston.com) from the San Luis reminding us today is a new day! So, no worries about fluctuating weight (urgh!) or what was eaten yesterday… Another reason to smile, it’s not Monday anymore!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Better late than never!

I also had scale issues and purchased a new one, so am not completely confident in my numbers, but…

I lost 2.7 pounds, too!  So weird!!!

Quote for the Day!

I found this quote, loved it and decided to share it.  It is from Sarah Brown, but I do not know who she is…

“The only thing that ever sat its way to success was a hen.”

We are not chickens, so let’s get moving!

I had to get a new scale so my starting point is a little questionable, making my progress questionable.  According to my app, I have lost 2.7 pounds!  Take that, you old website that said at my age, weight and height I could expect to lose 0.17 pounds a week and meet my goal in September, 2014!

I lost 2.7 lbs this week!

Happy Friday!

Or as they say in Hawaii, Aloha Friday – no work ’til Monday!  Hope everyone has a great day and weekend!
