Yes, it seems that I am on a roll. I lost another pound last week. I weighed in at 132 Sunday morning. I don’t have time to look it up (I never have enought time online), but it’s been a pound a week for over a month, I think. I’m going to have to take a picture one of these days, but at least some people have noticed. A lady from church told me Sabbath afternoon (after I refused an offer of carrots, saying that I haven’t been eating suppers and wasn’t hungry, explaining that I was trying to lose weight) that she had noticed that I had lost weight. That was nice. :)

It’s also nice to be able to fit into clothes that didn’t fit before, too. In fact, one of my shorter skirts (by short I mean just below the knee–perfect for the weather we’re having right now) is a tad bit too loose! Now, there’s a problem I can deal with! :)

So maybe I didn’t lose the 2 pounds that I had to, but one pound is better than nothing, and much better than negative loss.

Also, I should say that this blog has become extremely difficult to maintain without Internet. My husband and I are really feeling the lack of both a car (we only have one) and Internet, and they seem to be connected. If I had a car, I could go to the library during the week, not shop on Sundays, etc. If we had Internet, I wouldn’t have to try to get to the library before 5:00 pm (I failed to do so yesterday, which is why I’m posting this today). This means I may not post much here for the next 2 or 3 months. I’m not going to get rid of this blog. I’ll finish the challenge and try to post at least something every week, but it’s not going to have much going on until we get Internet at home.

In the mean time, if you are my friend and have my phone number (you can find it in my FB profile, if you’re my friend there), call me sometime. A phone I do have, and would love to hear from you!

    Hey Lisa, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this blog. I check every few days to see if you’ve had a chance to go to the library and post a new entry! I bought a strainer and determined to make my own rice milk based on learning from your instructional video. I agree totally and completely with your entry on the problem of tv and movies. And I loved to hear Mark Finley’s comments. This blog is a ministry. Maybe not to heathens, (who knows, maybe it is), but definitely to young Adventist homemakers, who need encouragement, inspiration, and education in the various skills. I am so encouraged when I see some of your entries, it inspires me to be a better person. I’m proud of you, Lisa. And I thank you for making the time to do it up right in a pretty blog like this.

    I wanted to recommend a book that I’m sure you’d enjoy if you haven’t already read it. It’s by June Strong, “Journal of a Happy Woman.” I’m not even done reading it and I know I’m going to recommend it to all my Adventist mommy friends. It’s beautiful and poetic and inspiring. Full of nature and God’s love and family. I love it!

    God bless you, Lisa. Your friend, Storie

    Our phone line is awful right now. Am having to resort to using the kids cell phones, so I have internet…but no phone!

    Thanks, Storie!
    I’ve been seriously thinking about this blog lately, because I just don’t have the time online to do much with it. Your comment was just the encouragement I needed. Thank you!
    But please don’t expect too much between now and the end of October (when our cell phone contract expires and we get DSL). I’ll do what I can, though. And if you email me your phone number, I’ll call you sometime! :)

    Oh, I think my mom has that book. I should borrow it. It never interested me as a teenager, but I think it would now!
