Asking for help

Monday, September 01, 2014

It's the beginning of a new month.
I apologize to my spark friends for not be online much lately.
My S.O, Mother was taken to the hospital on Wednesday found at home unresponsive she had a stroke. Does not seem she will recover according to the Doctors. She is now in a Nursing home, on hospice. Please pray for her that she goes easy and quickly.
Love you all

    My prayers are indeed with you and your family at this time. Hold your faith strong and know that God has a plan for her. If her work is done here I am sure God will have mercy on her and bless her into His home. She will be at peace and rejoicing from above.

HUGS and Prayers my friend. emoticon emoticon

Weekly Weigh Day

Saturday, August 02, 2014

My scale is slowly moving downward just as I have planned. 181.4
I am working my way slowly to move my BMI out of the obese range.
I know I can be only overweight by the end of this year. Then my new goal will be to get to normal weight by my Birthday July 4, 2015.
I have my emotional binge eating under control... yeah!
I am being consistent on doing my workouts.
I am eating more real food and giving up processed food most of the time.

I feel better, I no longer wake up with aches and pain.
I can carry my groceries up the 13 steps without going one at a time.
I no longer get out of breath with daily activities.
Oh Yeah! Life is Good!

Apology To All My Friends! (319)

Saturday, July 19, 2014

My Last post was March 1st.
Friendship is one of our most valuable gifts. The exchanges of the heart that happen between friends make memories that last a lifetime, and those memories become treasures that warm us on the coldest of days. When we support each other through life's challenges, we are shown that we have so much love to give.
Even though I was away for awhile, I remembered you all in my daily morning devotions.

I would like at this time to thank each and everyone that sent me Birthday wishes on the 4th of July.

I am happy to report while I was away I stuck to my healthy life style and I am down to 182.1 YEAH!!!!

Happier Days have arrived (458)

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

I am so happy with myself today, I am so full of energy that I walked 8 miles. I will do my yoga later this evening.
Yes, I did have a donut on this " Fat Tuesday" but I had pre-planned for it and tracked it on my food tracker.
Since I got tired of making 2 different meals since my S.O doesn't like healthy foods. I now make my menus ahead of time and I implement our usual foods, but I have changed my portions, to fit into my healthy lifestyle. So now I no longer stress over meal time.
If he wants hot sausage... I eat mine without the roll and leave off the cheese.
If he wants a grilled cheese sandwich and soup for lunch I just eat the soup and have a piece of fruit. well you get the picture.
I also measure and weigh all the foods I eat... to keep within my limits. I always have fresh fruit and salad on hand, which I turn to when he orders his pizza or hoagies.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon It's difficult when you're only cooking for 2 and both are following different life choices. We went through that and I empathize. There will be temptations but just keep doing the best you can which is emoticon
