Storm rolling in this morning. I'm starting to see the lightening show.
I love storms!
I hope this one clears the air of all this humidity.

I am still clearing my house of excessive stuff. I had designated Wednesday after work as my day to take a manageable (as in I can carry it) load of books to half price books, to sell. I was thinking I would get a few dollars for them. Enough to make it worth my while to cart them in there.

Last week I took a load of fairly current textbooks and some resource books from my field of study from about 10 years ago. About 12 -15 books. They gave me $3.
Ok, so I thought perhaps those books are not as current as I believe they are.
Last night I took a load of mostly gardening books, some of which were beautiful picture books on gardening themes.
Really, I don't think they print many books like those anymore.
They gave me $4. gasp!
That's it, not doing that again. I'd rather donate them. I have to peruse the store, while they come up with an offer for me. I know by the prices in the store that they aren't even giving me 10% of what they are going to price them at.

It facilitates the clearing of stuff, I will give it that. But now I'd rather make sure that any friends or relatives get a chance at them, before I donate.

Clearing my mind of all the past diets I have read or gone with.

Yesterday I took myself off of every facebook page that deals with dieting or weight reduction or skinny recipes. I don't need that in my face all the time. I am jaded!

All my dieting books are leaving my house. I am going to write a good bye post to them, before they are gone. It will be fun! Then those books are all going away.

I love Sparkpeople and I will continue to come to this site,
but I am not writing down food, anymore.
Writing down is fine for most people, I suppose. My problem with writing down everything I eat is that as soon as I quit writing down, I stop losing or even gain. I am not writing my food for the rest of my life.
I tried to get rid of the Sparkpeople app. I am so not wanting the app to be constantly reminding me to write down my meals. Yesterday I was ready to strangle my phone.
I looked up how to remove an app from my iPhone. It is not like it used to be with this new phone I have. It was so simple!

like this...

My new way of thinking...Is more joyful, more simple, it is a leap but it is so freeing for me.
I also trust!
My hubby is raising his eyebrows.
He'll see.

Be Well My Friends,
For The Love Of Health!
