MY JOURNEY

Hello Fellow Sparkers !! :)

I was checking my Spark page this evening and realized that I have not updated it in a year so that is what I'm doing. Not much to report except that I did NOT make it to Onederland this past year so once again, it is a goal for me to achieve.

Perseverence is a huge part of a successful diet. Continually ask God for commitment to your cause. And ask for his blessing. He is good to give it.

Hello Fellow Sparkers !! :)

I was checking my Spark page this evening and realized that I have not updated it in a year so that is what I'm doing. Not much to report except that I did NOT make it to Onederland this past year so once again, it is a goal for me to achieve.

Perseverence is a huge part of a successful diet. Continually ask God for commitment to your cause. And ask for his blessing. He is good to give it.

Keep this Bible verse close to you. It has gotten me through some really rough times:

Phillipians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

My thought for today is: I'm determined to make it, no matter what!

I hope you will join me on my journey as I strive towards Onederland.

Thank you for visiting my page and may God Bless and keep you.

My Goals:
I'd like to lose weight so I can breathe better, so I can walk in the sunshine, so I can go shopping with my daughter, just so I can feel better again. I'm so tired of being fat and unhealthy and a mess to look at.

I'd also like to get some help for my horrific back and leg pain from the sciatica nerve but am getting very discouraged by the lack of progress and the string of doctors I have seen over the last year. And now I have found out that surgery is not an option for me because my back is so back and I have so many health risks that two surgeons have turned me down for surgery.

My Program:
At the suggestion of my internist, I am doing the Atkins program which is a low carbohydrate diet. It works well for me because I don't get as hungry as I do when I am counting calories. My original starting wt was 350 in 2008 up through 2011. As of June 2012, I had lost 100 pounds with Spark People. Unfortunately, I got off track and gained back around 57 pounds of the weight I had lost. I have since lost that weight again and am hoping to get to Onederland by the end of 2015. WE CAN DO IT.

Personal Information:
My name's Ginger and I live in South Carolina. I am a transplanted Yankee and while I miss some things, I sure don't miss all that snow from Rochester, NY!! I love the South, love to garden, love to try new recipes, but most of all, love the Lord and my family most of all.

Other Information:
Love to read, especially mysteries, enjoy knitting and also sewing. Hope to learn to quilt maybe this year. Right now I"m trying to get myself in better health because I've had more than a few setbacks the past few years. My previous blogs will tell you what's happened and where I am now after MAJOR surgery in 2012.

Some goals never change!
GET HEALTHIER!!!

I love this quote, it reminds me that everyone is unique and beautiful. We don't need to be replicas of famous people or models! Be true to yourself.

emoticon As the New Year approaches and the old year is getting ready to leave, it is too easy to focus on want went wrong, what we did not like and forget that with the bad, we did have good! What goes wrong in our life is there for a purpose! I always say that it is the hard times that makes us appreciate the good times. When reflecting back on 2014 think back on the bad times and what we learned from them. Think back on the good times and remember to enjoy the memory. Here is a quote I love to help us think about the upcoming year.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

Let us say good bye to 2014 and face 2015 with the strength and courage that makes us who we are! Remember it takes courage to change, even when the change is for the better. You are worth the effort and commitment! emoticon emoticon
