Previously, I could control my weight by making "temporary" adjustments, but I never really learned how to properly analyze my eating, change bad habits, and make sustainable long-term changes that would contribute to an overall healthy lifestyle. With Sparkpeople, I now realize that this is a lifelong journey...and I truly believe that I've made changes that will remain with me for the rest of my life. Of course, every day is a new learning experience--and that is exciting!!

Thank you so much for thinking of me.
It really helps to know people (good people) are thinking of and praying for me.

Continued blessings,

Wanda

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. It is fun and exciting to see our kids grow up...after all those years of praying they will find their path and purpose in life.

Hope all is well with you.

Hey doll,
You are so sweet thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Well vacation went emoticon but came home to my mom being in the hospital. I have been taking her to dr appts/testing this week which is exhausting (especially since she lives an hour away and I have to go get her drive into medical center in Houston, then drive her back home and then get myself home). I don't mind doing it for her she is my mom and has always been there for me. The dr gave her bad news yesterday one of her lungs is no longer functioning and the other one is at minimal capacity, she is on oxygen tank now, they are discussing lung transfer, she will have to get on "the list" so she can hardly get around and do things for herself, she gets winded really quick so that's where I come in according to my siblings since I don't work (I know working outside the home is different from working at home but I really wanted to slap them because I work harder at home than when I worked outside the home). I work 24/7 and things are always coming up and more is always added to list of things to do. I digress, so long story short I am probably going to have to take a break from sparking taking care of my mom is going to be long days and nights and on top of this I am still going to get my workouts in so that I can take care of myself if I don't I can't take care of her. thanks for letting me vent. Though I will have weekends a little free where the rest of my sibling will take over as they ALL live only 15 mins from my mom.

emoticon on eating clean and healthy. Keep it up! emoticon
