I'm almost back down to my lowest in many years, 598. Just four more pounds. I don't know if I'll be able to do it this week. I'm not even going to try for it. I'll do the best I can and keep my fingers crossed. The scale is a piece of chaos in my life. I never know what it's going to do. I think I'm going to gain weight, I lose ten. I think I'm going to lose a lot, I gain a one pound. What helps me the most to lose weight is to journal my food every day. I use SparkPeople.
I ate out at Olive Garden and got all my favorites, Lasagna Fritta and Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo. But I shared the appetizer and immediately had them box up half the alfredo to bring home. Tomorrow we are going out for hubby's 50th birthday to Benihana's. Then Friday night to the in-laws for steak and potatoes, probably. I'll try to watch the portions at least. I've over-eaten at Benihana's in the past, so I need to watch that.
I'm looking for a new spiritual community. My path has been: Catholic, Baptist, lots of different Christian denominations, Agnostic, New Age, Wiccan, Pagan, Unitarian Universalist and now I'm checking out a liberal Christian denomination - United Church of Christ. I've come full circle it seems. There are still things that bother me about the Christian faith, but I have to admit when they stick with the message that God is Love, there can be beauty and spiritual fulfillment.
