Giving what I can, when the going is ruff !

I am the ML (does this stand for Motivational Leader,, or as I LIKE to say "MOST LOVED" leader !???? LOL Just ask the other leaders,,,, but, ONLY my vote counts,, of course in this case,, perhaps some insanity helps?) for the Spirited Under Dawgs,,, a part of the 5% challenge community. We do what we are able to ,,, in order to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks. I HAVE SUCCEEDED at this a few times ! Though at that point, my weight was quite higher than it is now ! So this IS POSSIBLE !! ...

So this IS POSSIBLE !!

For this SUMMER Challenge, I AM AGAIN (SIGH !) dealing with foot problems. Still in the "having tests" stage, so I can't state if I'll be down for all 8 weeks, or not, I tend to think yes.

So what I will do to lose the weight? The ONLY thing I can. To WATCH my food Intake ! The KEY IS TRACKING !! If you find ur gaining,, or on a plateau,,, RESTART with TRACKING, and EVERYTHING you put into ur mouth.

THIS IS DOABLE even if I don't lose the entire 5%, i WANT SOME !

Hello Dianne, I hope by now your health problems have subsided. I finally got home. It was more than a rough trip! DD is doing much better now, but there is still the ugly dark cloud of cancer over the family. She is such a vibrant person………there is no answer to my question of "WHY?". I am trying to get back in the swing of things here at home, but can honestly say I am so very down emotionally that it is difficult. But I will survive and get back on track. emoticon

Hi, Diane. High blood pressure and high cholesterol? Are both things new for you? I've had some of both, off and on over the years. I'm afraid my next appointment will have me on meds for both again, although the cholesterol meds and I don't get along well at all. I'm happy to be back in the in-between challenge and appreciate you keeping in touch. How are the treatments going? How about the cast and walking? Is that going okay? Hope you have a great week!! Hugs, Jeannie

Thank you for all the caring words you added to my Saturday in the Park . . . blog. These are trigger days for my sadness, and I'm a long way from "getting over" them. I mindfully sought out small up-lifting and joyful moments to fill my day yesterday. The opportunity to be with family was well timed. I put the same mindful attention to the time I spent them. I didn't mention in the blog that to get to the secluded beach, I walked through a couple kids birthday parties. Talk about an abundance of joy.

Thank you.
