Item #51: We're well on our way to meeting our goal of losing 15 pounds each. H has now met this goal ... I think he's lost a total of 18 pounds, and I've lost 12.4 pounds & plan to just keep on trucking. I can attribute most of my weight loss to ...

Item #57: wherein we make all of our food from scratch for 2 weeks. After struggling to lose more than 8 pounds, despite restricting my caloric intake & increasing my exercise to an hour a day 5 days a week, I've dropped 4 pounds in the last week! So, needless to say we're probably going to stick with making a LOT of our own food from here on out. We are thinking about planning on 3 or 4 meals a week that are made outside our home, whether it's dining out at a restaurant or just throwing a frozen pizza in the oven.

Item #85: Forgot to mention I sent a surprise care package to a ... get this, friend's son's friend. Guy's in the Navy & feeling a bit blue, so I packed up some goodies & sent them his way. Just got an email from him this morning about how much it meant to know he was supported. If that isn't the purpose of a care package, I don't know what is!

Item #86: We went to a different farmers' market today, since we were at the Renaissance Faire yesterday & couldn't go to our local one. This one was tiny, but we still picked up some items -- apples, tomatoes, onion, scallions, shallots. Wish I'd gotten garlic, now!
