SNOVEMBER-Next year moving to Buffalo--oh my!

Fatigue, body pain, and food cravings are the life-long symptoms I hope to stop. Wish me luck. Evening Eating has been the biggest problem. Oh and if I would eat at the table-instead of at the computer or in front of the TV--well that would help greatly!

June 2014. Finally after 5 years Sparking, I am below 250!
Down 30 LBS.

Failing to plan is planning to fail!
-Do I have fresh and frozen produce in the house?
-Do I have meals frozen for when I just can't get it together?
-Am I drinking my water?
-Am I getting to the pool often? No problem here!!!!
-Am I pacing myself ?
Am I breathing?
-Am I getting the extra help I need, even if I have to pay for it? I am a CAREGIVER since 2008 for DH.
-Am I planning fun into my day? Well--I still don't have enough energy to do this successfully.
-Am I Eating at the Table?. Oh boy is this hard for me!

I don't need those hundreds of snacks between meals!
NO SNACKS! NO SECONDS! NO SWEETS! except for "S Days!"
This is really, really hard for me!

Eat G-BOMBS! Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds ...for reducing body inflammation and pain from FM.

We can do this, Friends! I can do this!

You've come a long way, Baby!

❤Thanksgiving Friends❤
Thanksgiving is a time
To say thank you to those we treasure,
Those people we hold close to our hearts,
Who give us so much pleasure.

Without you my dearest friend,
I cannot comprehend;
You have always been there for me,
May our friendship never end.

May you and yours have a Blessed Thanksgiving.
Pat

THANK YOU CHRIS. YOU HAVE BEEN SUCH A GOOD FRIEND. I AM AS MUCH AT PEACE AS I WILL PROBABLY EVER BE. I TRULY KNOW I DID ALL I COULD. BUT TO THE BITTER END, SHE STILL BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF SATAN OVER JESUS AND DIED WITHOUT HAVING BEEN SAVED. SO SAD. WHAT A TRAGIC WASTE OF A BEAUTIFUL LIFE.

Thank you. I love the Thanksgiving Blessing. It was quite timely too as today is Wednesday and I am cooking the turkey work gave to me. It will just be the three of us this year because daughter and I both work the next four days. We are celebrating today. GD goes to Nana's tomorrow.

Buddy is watching the seagulls out the window this morning. Must be storming at sea to drive them inland. They like to pick at the worms in the park.
