Glad I can look back at the last 5 days and see I am still on track. I am getting my steps in and wish I could get more pool time, but the water has been cold with the recent rains. It won't be long and it will be time to close the pool. I still want my pretzels, yes I am addicted to them. I used to be able to fix a serving in the morning and have one or two all day long, but recently I noticed I wasn't fixing the bag and when I did I just grabbed for more. So... for now I can't have them available to eat. Finding something to satisfy that crunch, texture and not be loaded with carbs isn't happening. I had planned on joining WW again this past Monday, but right now I seem to be with God's help doing what I need to do. The scales aren't moving down as fast as I would like, but it is going down. The last 3 days it has only be .2 a day, but I remind myself .2 a day is better than nothing. One of the biggest temptations right now is peaches. We have a peach truck that comes only 2 times each year in Aug. with the best peaches. I bought one box several weeks ago and then last Fri. I got 2 more boxes plus a box of pears. Yesterday I prepared and froze about a gallon of peaches and did 5 trays with peaches to dehydrate. I want to make a pie. Last year I didn't and my dh really wants one this year, so I may try and do one. Eating 1/8 a day should be fine. I also want to make some peach bread and a cake and put them in the freezer. Thanking God that he is helping to keep on track. Things go much easier when you know he is sitting on your shoulder.
