July is Passing Me By

I cannot believe this is the last weekend of July.  This month has been a little crazy...lots of fun, sun, company, and not a lot of projects or serious stuff.  I waited all winter to enjoy summer, and I think I accomplished that this month.
There was lots of:


EATING AT THIS PLACE and PARTYING WITH COMPANY.

 A TRIP DOWNTOWN FOR FIREWORKS ON MUD ISLAND.




ONE BEAUTIFUL GIRLIE POSING FOR HER SENIOR PICTURES.
KIDDOS GOING TO  CAMP.
KIDDOS COMING HOME FROM CAMP.
LATE NIGHT BAKING EXPERIMENTS ASKING FOR MY PARTICIPATION IN GUESSING THE INGREDIENTS.

MORE COMPANY INSPIRING ANOTHER TRIP TO THIS PLACE.
FOLLOWED BY THIS PLACE.

A FEW BIRTHDAY PRESENTS FOR MY DAD.  WE WANT HIM TO REPRESENT TENNESSEE WELL IN ILLINOIS!


I DISCOVERED THIS PLACE...A BLOG TO EXPLAIN COMING SOON!
MISSION TRIPS.
LATE NIGHT FAMILY POOL PARTIES.


AWARD PROGRAMS.
DOCTOR CHECK-UPS.
GIRLS NIGHTS OUT.


AND THAT'S JUST A SMIDGEN OF MY JULY.
IT WAS GLORIOUS.
IT WAS GRAND.
IT WAS EVERYTHING I'D DREAMED OF IN JANUARY.
I LOVE YOU JULY.

While I was doing  all of those July/summery kind of things I took a little break from blogging.  I took a little break from jotting down every nibble too.  Which led to more and more nibbles.  I am happy to report that I am still holding strong; weighing in at minus 41.5 pounds total this morning.  I seem to have parked around the minus 42 pound mark.  Considering all the company, partying, and nibbles I am happy with that.  I'm not happy with staying there forever though.  In fact, staying there for two months is starting to feel dangerous.  It's not where I should be or want to be, so I am back to the grind.  August is my month to kick it back into gear!  I figure I only have three months left to lose this year before I buckle down during the two last holiday months and hold on for dear life during the crazy eating holiday roller coaster.  Those last two months my dream will be to maintain.
So this coming week I plan to be back recording my progress and blogging regularly.  I have 22 pounds until I hit the NORMAL BMI range.  I want to reach that goal before November.
So here's to August, getting back into a routine in all areas, and getting to my next goal!!!
