SWEET TEA

Almost a "has been"


It's almost time to flip the page of the calendar.
My how I hate to see July go by. 
Whoa Horsey!  Time is a flyin'
and July 2012 will soon be
a "has been".


Summer has always been my favorite season.  I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I was born during the Summer.  ???  It is so hot now that everyone "in these parts" is sort of held hostage by their A/C, which I don't really mind.  As long as the sun is shining through my windows I'm a Happy Camper.  It's during this time that I bid adieu to my garden and let the weeds have at it.  It's far too hot to weed now - I'll save that for a cooler Fall day.

Let the record show that I have been dieting faithfully since June 9.  Let the same record show that as of last Thursday I have lost 9 lbs.
It's S-L-O-W, but at least it's working.  I'm using Weight Watchers online, PointsPlus program.  It is not fun.  I miss baking.  I miss eating cookies, but more than that, I LOVE seeing the pounds go bye-bye
.  I want to lose 11 more pounds and I want to see this through to reach my goal.  It.Is.A.Battle.  And I intend to win.  "I think I can.  I think I can."  



Are you ready to kiss July good-bye?

Towards the end of summer which is August I begin to get depressed as I know the shorter days are coming and cold and clouds and NO SUNSHINE! It is my depressed time of year. I love summer too (June baby) and will NEVER complain about the heat of the Oklahoma summers! You will hear me complain about winter though. The first chill and I am cold all winter long. EEK!

This summer has flown by, I know its alot hotter where you are and I'm not sure i would be able to take that heat but I suppose we become acclimatized, you might not be able to take my cold weather!!!I envy the long growing season thats for sure.
Congratulations on the weight loss, the statistics show its better to lose it gradually than quickly so I think you're on the right track, you look lovely,

Good for you...you have so much more will power than me. In my dreams I have lost the 20-25# I'd like to lose...maybe this will happen in reality one day.

You will be in my prayers girl. I know dieting is very hard to do. But I am so excited for you, losing 9 pounds. I need to get busy myself. I love summer too and hate to see it dwindling away.. the heat has been intense this year. We have not gotten to enjoy it like we would love to. Smiles, Susie

No, I don't want to see July end because that means I'll be officially old! :) But I do love the sun and the summer time living! Although here, we have had mostly rainy days. I am trying hard not to complain because we need the rain.......trying being the operative word here!

I am so proud of you! 9 lbs is nothing to sneeze at! It is very hard but once you reach that goal, it makes you feel so good and looks great. It is slow, but so worth it....I miss all those goodies too sometimes, but most of the time, I just feel good about putting on clothes and not having a muffin top!!

I'm rooting for you!!! Hip Hip hooray!

I'm not ready to leave July behind...August just means it is a month closer to having to wear hats, coats, boots, gloves and scarves just to walk the dog.

Congratulations on the weight loss! No, I'm not ready to see summer draw to a close. Even though it's over 100 degrees and sort of miserable right now, I prefer that over winter. I'm definitely a summer girl.

Congrats on the weight loss! I'm starting fresh on Aug.1st and hopefully will see some results by my wedding anniversary (aug.31st) You can do it! I'm happy to see July go by. I don't like to wish my life away but this summer has not been that great around these parts. But I love fall and hopefully it will be a good one.
