I forgot to say I started wearing my pedometer yesterday-got batteries for it at Wal-mart. Yesterday I wore it for my exercise and I walked 1620 steps and 1.29 miles. Today I walked 1.52 miles, and I can't remember the steps. But, that's a very big increase in one day I think.

I got real low blood sugar yesterday so didn't feel like going to Wal-mart like I was supposed to. So didn't get my Louis Armstrong CDs.

We had a pretty good turn out for our weekly chat with JWLW last night, 5 people showed up. So that's good. I'm hoping it will get to going really well. Then I figure by July 2004, I will add a Sunday chat too. And maybe eventually a Friday chat. Just to keep people motivated.

Yesterday we went to Wal-mart. I got some things I had been wanting. They had some really good deals on CDs. I got a 3 CD set of Nat King Cole-had songs like I get my Kicks on Route 66, and Unbelievable, and a 2 CD set of Ella Fitzgerald-A Tisket, A Tasket. They had a 3 CD set of Louis Armstrong that I wanted but the case was all broken up. I will get it today though if I can't find it at the other Wal-mart cause they are such a good deal and I love their music so much. Our first song we danced to was Unbelievable-Nat King Cole, and our parent dance at the wedding was to A kiss to Build a dream on-Louis Armstrong. I love to listen to them while I'm in a bubble bath (and Etta James, and Billy Holiday-Brown Eyes) they are very comforting, winter time, warm, lovey songs that just make me feel good. So I think I will start dancing to them more. Especially now that it's cooled down so I can close the windows and blinds and no one will see me. lol

I also went to a buffet but remained on plan. I had crab legs, green beans, and just a little bit of Chow Mai Fun. (about 1/3 of a cup of it.) The rest was just crab legs and green beans. It was really good. I didn't even have their butter. Oh I did have some egg drop soup with green onions, but that is still good for me.

Let's see....... I also got some pillow protectors that are hypoallergenic, supposed to keep the dust mites and stuff like that from breeding. I hope they work. But, they were only 1 dollar more then the regular pillow protectors so I think they are worth the chance.

I made a new blinkie today. I think it's cute. It's of me holding a fall sign that says my name. I will probably be making some fall changes to my blog soon.

For now I really need to go to the grocery store soon.

I'm still trying to brain storm and think of more ways to get JWLW to be a better group. I love my group but, I want it to be able to the best it can be. I think I may see if I can get some more members, and maybe that will bring up our the amount of people who chat in the chat room as well. I want to give it a bit of time though and see how things go, with the new features I've already added.

As of this morning I've lost 27 pounds and I'm pretty happy with that. A lot of people say they can tell by looking at my pictures. I can tell when I look at the pics, and I couldn't tell by looking in the mirror.

I've been also trying to think of themes for JWLWs weekly chats. I've decided we would discuss relaxing music, and what kind makes us feel relaxed and good. And what kind would help us want to move. Cause that was one of Dr. Phil's suggestions to permanent weight loss.

I've decided on having Monthly Challenges with JWLW, and giving prizes of graphics. But, I think it would be a neat idea to also give cds away too, if every one would send in 5 dollars for the price of it and shipping. People could still be part of it for free and get a graphic for winning, and I wouldn't spend their 5 dollars if they didn't win it would just put them in for the next months challenge. But, I don't know how that would go. I would probably only be able to give cds with radio shows that don't have a copywrite any more, cause of it expiring.

After that I can't think of other themes for chats, since every one is on a different plan it's kind of hard to talk about a certain theme sometimes when not every ones plan would coincide with the theme. But, if I keep thinking I will probably think of some other things. Like maybe why we want to lose weight. Or something.

I'm really wanting a treadmill, lol right now I just walk around the bedroom and it gets dizzying sometimes-too tight of circles. lol

I've been working on my JWLW group today, and added some new features, I think it will focus the group more on health and weight loss likes it's supposed to be. It's been having big changes for months now, but I think our new features will add to it.

Otherwise I haven't done a whole lot today.

A lot of stuff in missing from my blog, I hope it comes back. Sorry I've been not coming regularly I will try to do better. So far I've lost 25 pounds on my new life style. And I'm reading Dr. Phil's book. I think I can do it! :)

BTW, I finished the cross stitch project I was talking about way back in Feb. lol I forgot to tell you all. It's really cute, I will have to scan it in sometime.
