Today is a beautiful day. It is a lot cooler outside, and the air isn't hazy, so I was able to turn off the air conditioner and open all the windows. My lungs are doing a lot better now. I have made an appointment for next week to make sure I don't have the problem of running to the ER all summer for asthma attacks.
It is so nice with the windows open. If feel like I am not so disconnected from the outside world. I love the fresh air. I love to hear the outside noises. I love to hear the birds singing. Of course right now I don't just hear birds. I also hear a chain saw. It kind of spoils the serenity, but nothing can spoil my mood right now.
Light Weigh Last night I went to my weight loss group. It is a group within the Catholic Church and it is called Light Weigh. Since I started going (three weeks ago) I have lost 5 1/2 pounds (notice how I claim the half pound - every half pound counts!). More important than the weight loss is the spiritual growth that I have gotten. It has really strengthened my relationship with the Lord. If anyone would like to lose weight, and this program comes to your church, i would seriously suggest you consider it. And you don't need to be Catholic to go to it. If I didn't lose a pound I would still go to it for the spiritual benefits, but let's face it, I need to lose some weight, and I am going to stick with it until I do. I know I can, because I have been losing weight for awhile (for about a year now). I just need to lose some more. And I love what I am learning and I love the fellowship of this program. So I am glad I am going. If you would like more information about the program you can find it at www.lightweigh.com.
