they are all good! and many of them I practice regularly.

thinking of #37 though - many times, since my children were little when we bake Cookies we batch up some to give away. When you give a homeless man homemade Cookies, be prepared for tears. I can not tell you how many men have told me that no one has made them cookies since their (Grandma, Mama, Aunt so and so)

some would say keep these for your own kids (not being mean, just feeling like they didn't deserve it) and my kids would say, nah. she makes us cookies ALL the time, these we made for YOU.

now adays I just usually participate in room at the inn when I have a chance, which is a local program where different churches or civic groups in the area sign up to host 8-10 men one night a week during the fall/winter months. Our church does Tuesday nights. Several of us sign up and provide a meal which we share with them. Always try to fix what I would fix for my own family dinners, and it is a good thing, a nice evening every time. Hearing people's stories, sharing yours. 2 of the guys from the church stay all night and we send them off with Breakfast and a bagged lunch the next day. The program helps a lot of people get back on their feet.

I was homeless with 5 kids following my divorce 20 years ago, so it matters to me.

This was our sunset last night.

Can I just add another one? when you can do so safely and the weather is lovely - go for a walk by moonlight. It is soothing to the soul.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)
