Thank-you

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

thank-you everyone for my birthday wishes, I really appreciated it. It really made my day knowing that so many people cared. I didn't do anything special. Last Thursday my hubby and I went to the Red Lobster for dinner for our birthdays as his was last week so we celebrated together. I will be leaving for my daughters in 2 weeks I can't wait for warmer weather.That little grandson of mine will be here on April 29th at 9 am by c-section. I can't wait to meet him.I am doing well with my weight and am down to 196.4 and in onederland finally-I love it.Everything is going good here and I wish everyone else some happiness and good luck in your weight loss. again thank you for my birthday wishes-I love you all.

I'm sure we'd all love to see photos of the new member of the family, if that's okay with Mom of course.

Have a good week!

My February

Sunday, March 02, 2014

Well fellow Sparkians I lost 9.8 pounds in February and I am so excited. I did not do well in the exercise department. I couldn't get motivated at first and then last week I hurt my back some how and was literally in bed for 5 days. now I am up walking around and I tried to do the treadmill today and I couldn't do it at all it hurt to bad. I am so disappointed cuz I have had 3 surgeries already and I hope my disc didn't herniate again. I will keep resting until I feel better. My husband has been very supportive of my eating plan and I have been doing great under supervision of a doctor.My daughters are doing well. Ashley is 8 months pregnant now and is due April 28 and is doing great. My other daughter April is in her new relationship and doing well and she is in love. and I am so happy for her after her last relationship was so terrible. I can finally sleep at night knowing she is safe and loved. It makes me very happy. well I am going down to Georgia in April to see my grandchildren and help with the new baby when he comes. I can't wait it will be so much fun and I am lucky to have a husband that doesn't mind me going for so long. I am going to stay until August. April and her boyfriend are taking me down then my husband will come pick me up to come back home.I am lucky my son-in-law doesn't mind me staying either we get along well.I am trying to stick to my goals and I have been religiously drinking my water. I have been following my meal plan very closely and like I said the exercising is on the back burner for right now. Please pray that my back is not severely injured and is just a pulled muscle.My mom in the nursing home is doing well. She is still very confused but still knows who I am though and she just doesn't understand why she can't come home which is really hard for me, but there is no way I could lift her and do complete care on her at home I just couldn't do it.It really makes me sad at times. God knows best though and I just don't know what his plans are right now but I am sure he will let me in on them soon!!!My goal is to lose 10 more pounds this month and get back to exercising. I lost 5 inches this month. 4 of it off my chest-LOL I needed that!!! Now if I could just lose some around my waist it would be nice. I am in on a lot of challenges and look forward to doing them. Well, that's all for February and I look forward to March. I love you all my sparkfriends.-love and Blessings, Lu Ann

She says it is an eerie quiet out and she can hear the trees falling from the ice.My prayers are with all the people impacted by the storm. We really need to see Spring soon it has been a very hard winter this year.God bless everyone-Love, Lu Ann

I think that would be a perfect time to reward yourself with something non-food related. That will lift your spirits even higher, and pump you up for the next round. . .

    emoticon How great to be able to post such a achievement! Fantastic-next stop Onederland!

I was fortunate to only have our power on and off for hours at a time but at least it was on long enough to take the chill off the house before going off again. I am laid up after surgery for a dislocated/fractured ankle so I am pretty much at the mercy of what is happening here at the house. I hear our tree limbs falling, scraping the roof on their way down, thudding in the yard, etc. but so far no major damage. Our city is pretty much shut down with debris and ice but at least we have power and our snow is no where near as much as what other areas are experiencing. They are all in my prayers as I give thanks that ours was not worse but hope all in other areas are going to be okay.

My January

Friday, January 31, 2014

Well my weight on Thursday was up 7 pounds and today it is down 3 since I started my new program this week. It's under a doctors supervision and entail a cream, Alkaline water and drops under your tongue 3 times a day.I hadn't lost weight before the 7pound gain this week in 9 weeks I have been the same.So slow going for me. I am hoping this doctor can help me. I eat 3 servings of meat 3 veggies and 3 fruit so its well balanced. no sugar or starches or dairy at this time- I know I can do it. It's a little expensive but has some really good weight loss testimonies for it. I had to do somethingand my hubby is being very supportive of the program and my eating. He went with me for the first consultation with the doctor.i know todays weight loss was just water loss but its a loss.I can do this I am going to follow it faithfully.My January was good for exercising I did very well for the month.i am going to push myself harder in February. My daughter is doing well in her pregnancy she is 27 weeks now and my grandsons are doing great-I love those boyz. My other dausghters new relationship is going well and she's doing well also. So to sum it up the New Year is bright and now I am on a new weight loss journey and I am going to make it for sure.God is good and wise.So I will keep you updated on the new program and hopefully I will be seeing some weight loss in the future.I love you all!!
Lu Ann
