I'm Happy to be Back!!

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I had a good time on my vacation, but I'm very happy to be back home. My son-in-law is now a Warrant Officer in the La. National Guard. We (husband, daughter, granddaughter) left Monday to go to his graduation. FYI: It's challenging to drive across 2 states with a 2 year old!!! She was very good, but got restless, of course, so we had to stop often. My husband and I came back last night. They took their time driving back. AND, I weighed this morning, just knowing that I'd gained 40 lbs in the 3 days that I was gone. I had LOST 1 pound...My lowest ever. Maybe my yoyo streak of losing/gaining/losing has ended. I'm finishing up the 5% challenge. My goal was to lose 10 pounds. Let's just say I didn't quite make it--only ONE pound...Hey, but that's one pound, so I'm happy. I stayed the course. I can see major differences, just not on the scale. Can you believe it??? I actually walked all over the graduation building (a big military museum) and I did NOT use my walker!!! Most of the time, my balance is so bad in large, open spaces. That is a MAJOR accomplishment! That's even better than losing a pound.

Somewhat Discouraged

Thursday, February 27, 2014

I'm somewhat discouraged about my weight loss--or the lack thereof. I realized that it's the end of February and that was suppose to be when I met my goal of reaching 210. I had made my goal around Christmas. Since I seem to be losing weight slower, I thought that instead of 2 lbs. a week, that I'd shoot for a little over 1 lb per week. I figured that a good goal would be to lose 10 pounds in 2 months. That's doable, right??? Well, it didn't happen. I'm stuck at losing about 2 lbs. I know. I know. I tell myself all the things that I've told other people....look for non scale victories....don't get discouraged....at least it's 2 lbs (although it keeps fluctuating)....be thankful with what I have lost (forever!) My problem last night was that I was exhausted!. Infusion on Monday. No naps and a very active 2 years old ALL day on Tuesday and Wednesday. Right before I gave myself a pity party, it clicked.....that in itself is a victory (and a miracle). For those of you who know about MS....trust me, that's a miracle! I was still able to function. So, I went to bed very early. I got up early, but that's OK. I can make it even if Hannah doesn't take a nap again today. So, I guess, I'm just saying that if the scale is stuck for you, don't go eat every thing in sight. Just stick with it. Slowly but surely, we'll win! Turtles Rule!!!

    Hi, Lady. Welcome home. I thought that I would lose at a faster rate than I have and have been very discouraged. With the exception of my first week where I lost 5 pounds, I have lost mostly 1 pound a week as well. I, too, am a turtle and we are both going to finish what we started here. You certainly have the right mindset to win and it sounds like you are doing all the right things. Sounds like you have had a few "non-scale" victories...increased energy and being more fit enabling you to keep up with a toddler. I bet your clothes are loser as well. Well, here is to more "non-scale" victories until the scale catches up with the changes! emoticon emoticon

    GOD ANSWERS PRAYER my friend sometimes not the way we want them. When you have health issues you can't focus so much on the scales for success. I focus on eating healthier and doing more with my time daily but most of all if i am tempted i ask myself do i REALLY NEED THIS ! IS IT WORTH THE CALORIES ? Also before i get out of bed i ask the Lord to help me make healthy choices today . THANK YOU FOR BEING ON THE TEAM GOD ANSWERS PRAYER ! You can sparkmail me if i can help you in anyway !

    I know that space. LOL! Such a familiar place for most of us, I would say.

I am laughing, because I can say all the right things to you, but when I have hit plateaus in the past, I do the exact same mental process and reach the same emotional places and walk myself through in the same way.

Yes, by faith we both know that if we keep going it will work. So we keep going, because if we stop, it won't work, and, we are going to do what it takes to have it work.

I am pondering a "watched pot never seems to boil" strategy for myself for this process. I am not sure which strategy will work. I am thinking changing focus - whether to clothes sizes or accomplishing a fitness goal is the way to not stumble over results. Still praying about it.

You are brave and strong in my eyes. I have known a few people with MS and all of you are heroes to me. I know that God gives the grace to be more than a conqueror and I am praying that for you. My battle has been more internal emotional, but it has been a fierce war for my soul and, by God's grace He is winning in my life. I know He will win in yours, too - for the glory of His name.

    I stayed at a plateau for three weeks without losing anything and I too suffer from MS so I know what you are talking about. Lack of sleep, not taking in proper food amounts, I had increased my exercise amount but didn't increase my calorie intake, everything was just getting out of whack and I was getting in a rut. I had to sit down and readjust calories to increase according to exercise burns and I added strength training just mix up what I was doing.

But just cut yourself a break - you have a lot going on and with the MS factor thrown in you have to listen to your body and adjust to it and not let it get you down you know that it will throw a wrench in your plan then just the plan just changes and you move on you know that better than anyone. You are a great inspiration to everyone so don't let this little bump in the road get you down. Remember this is a marathon not a sprint. You are doing an amazing job.

    you have overcome obstacles that seem horrific to others. you push forward, never complaining about the health you have been dealt. you do so much for this team. You do a lot for your daughter. Maybe you just don't always have enough time for yourself. Over coming bad eating habits is very hard. look at me I stayed at 166 for 15 years, and didn't care. I was in too much pain from a car accident. then I went 4 1/2 years without work, and ate myself up another 20 pounds. To 186. So, after I retired 2 years ago, I still had stress, so I couldn't concern myself with feeling calm, and dieting. now I am trying & calmer. but over coming bad habits, that seems impossible for me. I don't want to believe that my weaken spirit is always at fault. So feeling like a food addict. I had to join Weight Watchers to learn what to do when I Bing, and how to eat differently. It has helped, but spark was given me a healthier diet with the diabetic diet. yet I have to do many new things to loose weight-journal-plan meals-plan snacks-have snacks always within reach-get the bad foods out of my life- and attempt to exercise at least 3 times weekly to hit that 2 pounds\ off. Don't be so hard on yourself, please. you are so much more than your body. And I am sure once you finally set your mind to it, you will over come many of those things you thought you couldn't. Last month, I thought I was going to be so ambitious, yet Hares lost. So, I say to you nothing is final, and I know that you can still do it with or without exercise. eva emoticon emoticon

    I'm in the same boat, too. I will say that I have had times like this before, when for whatever reason the pounds just won't go or even try to come back over several weeks - then BINGO - I'll get rid of 2 or 3 from one day to the next. Just stick it out and let your body have time to figure out what is going on. Be sure you are tracking and paying attention to what you consume. That can be a real deal maker or breaker, too.

Everyday i am striving on eating healthier and most of all staying close to the Lord spending more time in devotions and i know God is happy with me doing that no matter what the scales say i know my choices are leading up to the best i can be .

The 'extra' one on my list (so far) today is my "nap" after getting out of bed this morning was only 45 minutes long! Usually is is like 2 hours! I weigh out these lists. Compare them. My victory list usually wins. Praise God that I CAN do these things.

Did I ever tell you that I collect ALL things 'turtle'? I have a Curio cabinet of my Mom's and 4 out of 5 shelves are filled with my turtles.........the rest you can find around my house in various places.

Not a Fun Day

Monday, February 24, 2014

Today was a challenging infusion day. First it wasn't until the afternoon. I like to go on and get it over with. They did the usual blood work--no problem. Then, my veins decided to not cooperate and FIVE stick and TWO nurses later, they finally got the IV to going so my 2 hours could start. Sometimes it "hits" me more than other times. Tonight's one of those times. Enough whining. Everyone have a great day tomorrow!

Even if you've heard some of these before, I think you'll still enjoy them:

The Pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday morning.

For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery down stairs.

The eighth graders will be presenting Shakespeare's Hamlet in the church basement on Friday at 7 pm. The congregation is invited to attend the tragedy.

This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Lewis to come forward and lay an egg on the altar.

The preacher will preach his farewell massage, after which the choir will sing, "Break Forth With Joy".

Thursday night: Potluck Supper - Prayer and medication will follow.

The outreach committee has enlisted 25 visitors to make calls on people who are not afflicted with any church.

Low Self-Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 to 8:30 p.m. Please use the back door.

Ushers will eat latecomers.

The third verse of Blessed Assurance will be sung without musical accomplishment.

The Rev. Merriweather spoke briefly, much to the delight of the audience.

During the absence of our pastor, we enjoyed the rare privilege of hearing a good sermon when J. F. Stubbs supplied our pulpit.

Next Sunday Mrs. Vinson will be soloist for the morning service. The pastor will then speak on "It's a Terrible Experience."

Due to the Rector's illness, Wednesday's healing services will be discontinued until further notice.

The music for today's service was all composed by George Friedrich Handel in celebration of the 300th anniversary of his birth.
