This is Me on my way to becoming what I can be

I work too much and play too little but I love cooking and apparently still haven't got the eating bit right. Excercise is not my forte but I love riding my bike when the weather is right and I am in the right frame of mind. The dark mornings and evenings of winter depress me but I thrive on long warm sunny days.

Hey Rosalind. I can't believe that it's going to be in the 30's tonight. Isn't it spring? Mother Nature is bipolar for sure. I have been doing pretty good lately. Finally got over falling , I even got a knot on my head. My new caregiver is on vacation for the next 2 weeks, so I'm on my own right now. Hope you are doing well. emoticon

So good to hear from you Rosalind, thanks for your comment on my blog. Already I feel re-inspired and in control. I had a great day yesterday and am on my way to another great day, today. One day at a time! I was actually surprised when I got on the scale yesterday morning and it only said 170 pounds. I really thought I had gained more than that. When I got on the scale on 1/2/14, I weighed 174.6, so I have actually lose a couple of pounds since then, although I got lower than that at one point, and then of course slipped off the wagon and gained most of it back. Even surgery at the end of January didn't result in much of a weight loss, at least not a lasting one.

Finally having my ulcer diagnosed and the pills I am taking, along with staying completely off my aspirin, have resulted in no more stomach aches, and I am feeling really good again physically. That is a blessing, but I need to remember, just because I feel better now, it does not give me an excuse to eat more!

Starting over is tough, but not as tough as it was when I initially began my journey over four years ago, and needed to lose over 100 pounds. Back then, I never even looked towards a goal, it was just too overwhelming. As someone else pointed out, it's not really starting over, since I have so much less to lose. It is starting over, however, in that I need to rediscover that spirit I had before, that immense desire to regain my health and life. I know I can do it though, with support from great friends like you.

I hope your health is good as well, and you are rediscovering that sense of well-being that I think you lost for a while. I have never experienced having my space invaded like you did, I can only imagine how difficult that must be. I am dealing with a great loss, however, as I try to come to terms with the eventually pre-mature loss of my wonderful Du. It's the hardest thing I have ever gone through, but I'm trying to be strong, and I know staying closer to my goal weight will help me, at least, be physically strong, and that is almost as important as the mental strength part, isn't it?

Good morning, thanks for your comment. I am still a little sore from falling I didn't know it, but I got a bruse on my forhead. Really felt dumb. I have to stop this falling because it sets me back a little being sore and all. I'm just laying around for right now. My new caregiver is really sweet and taking care of me.

My silly dog, Dixie has taken over my lawndry basket as her new dog bed. She has made me laugh everyday since the day I got her. Laughter gets me thru a lot of the pain I get sometimes and helps me stay away from food that I'm not supposed to eat. I want to be able to walk like I used to. I will get there, I have come along way and I will get there. I have friends that incourage me and I cherish you more than you know. Thank you so much and I hope you are doing well. emoticon

Good morning, it's getting cold here again. I'll be glad when Mother Nature gets back on her meds and gets with the program. She is acting bipolar for sure.
It's Spring darnnit, it's supposed to be getting warmer. LOL!!! I don't how

you do it with all that snow. My new caregiver keeps me laughing. Right now the seat in my van is not turning around and it is a bit of a comedy act to get me in the drivers seat. Hope no one is around with a video camera or I'll be seeing myself on Funniest Videos. Lol!!! Laughing is good for me after all the stress I've been under. Got to go for now and you stay warm emoticon emoticon
