I have had a heavy heart for quite a long time now...

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

I havent been a very active member or fitness buddy for the last year.. and I really havent felt like being much of a joiner.. even though my weight loss is going the right way again and I am at the lowest I have been in a long time. I struggle daily with my complete lack of enthusiasm.. I love my children and I am so proud of all of them and of being a new grandmother.. but most nights I find myself sad, lonely, tearful.. and feeling invisible.. it has been so long since someone has really seen me.. and I am just so tired of being surrounded by people and still feeling completely alone..

I am sorry for the melon callie post... I just needed some place to express how Im feeling..

    I have so been where you are. And honestly I went and got some medicine and now I am just a lot happier than I have ever been. Along with quitting smoking and loosing weight I just like me a lot better than I ever have. So If you just need someone to vent too, please send me a message I am more than happy to listen to ya vent and offer some support.

Maybe try doing a couple of exercises when you start feeling down in the dumps? That may help a little I know it does with me. I also taught myself how to crochet and knit that keeps my hands and my mind busy most of the time.

You are in my thoughts. Hugs~ Kim

    My heart breaks for you in your sadness. Please don't ever lose sight of how truly beautiful you are just by being a child of God. I know that may sound easy, but it is so true. I remind my girls of that all the time. Try looking for the beauty and joy in life that speaks to you. Reconnect with things that make YOU happy. Spiritual study, hobbies, involvement with your church, involvement with your family, volunteering in the community, exercise (of course...we're sparkers), learn to play an instrument or speak a language.....whatever makes you feel good inside. Please don't base your self worth on others because you are always worth SO MUCH. Look what you've accomplished already! I see the pictures of your beautiful family!

    I agree with the other members. Find something in the evenings that interest you like a new hobby, get into reading, taking a long warm bath, go for a walk. I wish you the best of luck!

    Congrats on your weight LOSS. But MAINTENANCE is much harder. Join the 5% club. You can find the link to the 5 Secrets of the 5% club in the blog on my SparkPage. Few do it but it is worth saving all thejavascript:%20void(0); effort you have already put in.

    Push yourself dear...push yourself at people walking by. It is hard to do but I try to force myself to say hello & smile at a few strangers everyday...
It's good for us & others (it's contagious).

Also try to call an old friend once a week at least & perhaps join an activity or do a bit of volunteering if your schedule allows (these are my wishes but my schedule just doesn't allow it right now). If you can't do that at least take a 20 minute to hour walk once a day?? That's what I can do. While my big on sis is doing homework I put the little one in the stroller & walk a little everyday (fresh air, exercise, & always time to smile & say hello to a couple of strangers).

  You need to find something to fill your evenings. Maybe doing volunteer work where you would feel useful or maybe a new hobby that takes classes to accomplish. Whatever you decide, the best of luck to you.

Friday, August 23, 2013

I have my new Y membership started and I have gotten to take my 4 yr old swimming 3 times now and I g0t to use the weight room this morning.. we had a healthy lunch at the park and are going to go back to the Y this afternoon for a is my only day off for the week so I am making the most of it. I am hoping to grill out this afternoon.. We have a new person starting at work on friday so I am really hoping that all the over time will slow down some and I can start being here more often.. I feel like I am letting my spark buddies down with my lack of participation of late.. My computer is fixed now so that should help some.. I hope that everyone is doing well and on track for their fittness goals.

Have a safe healthy and fun weekend!

I am sorry I haven't been on much lately.. I had 132 hrs on my last 2 week check.. makes for a good check but once I spend sometime with the kids its off to bed.. also no computer for a will, my middle son broke my laptop and I have to send it in for repairs.. I hope that all is going well for everyone and those pounds are coming off.. I haven't gaind anything but haven't lost anything either.. all the over time should slow down by the 14th.. then I will be spending time at the Y..

Good luck, your all in my prayers!

    I have been working a lot, as well and also had deaths and illness in the family.
That makes for not much spark time.
I have not gained or lost, either, but my blood pressure is much better! An amazing 118/71! Makes me very happy.

Praying that your foot will be feeling better very soon.

We will get back with the spark swing, soon!

Really Feeling bummed about my lack of exercise this week!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

The last week has really sucked for me. My planters fascistic (bone sper in my heel) has been really sore and I can hardly stand to be up on it. Although its not hurting as much as it did earlier in the week its still very sore. On top of that I just started a new job that requires me to be on my feet a lot so, I haven't gotten any workouts in this week and I am feeling really bummed about it. I am hoping that it starts feeling better soon or I am going to have to see if I can get back into the doctors for another cortisone shot in my heel... and I am worried about gain the weight I lost back. On the upside I have been able to stay pretty close to my calorie goal.. I have only been under or over by 100 calories and I did start a new job that I very much needed. I guess over all things could be much worse.. and I am greatful that they are not. I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations on getting a new job, that is great news and the fact that you are keeping an eye on your calorie range , shows a good awareness. Focus on these positives my friend and don't let that seed of doubt creep in. You are on the right road and I know how frustrating firsthand it can be when you are injured to get in exercise and then you are worrying about the scales... For me I have found doing what I can exercise wise consistently no matter how little it may seem, it is something and that helps me feel better and not so apprehensive about getting weighed.. as even though the effort may not show immediately on the scales, it could be on the measuring tape and you are in a better head space.

Keep up the good work emoticon
