me and Ashlynn, so sweet
my grand daughter
OMG I look just like my mom when she was old. LOL Me feeding Ashlynn
As life goes by I find myself increasing in more than my spiritual, mental and social skills, I am slowly increasing in girth. skipping past baby fat, pleasantly plump and jiggles to what is listed as obese. Wake up call! OK - My eyes are wide open. If I stumble I do not stop to analize. I pick my plumpness up and start back right away. Babies always fall when they start walking...right?
Nov. I am now decreasing in girth. It's working!
1. Learn to sleep on my back, because my face is less scary in the morning.
2. put lotion on my body everyday to show I love my whole self.
3.write an idea plan each night before i go to sleep, look at it each morning before I stick my head in the fridge to make the family breakfast..a moment for me to start each day.
4.think before I eat. I have to stop eating in the confey chair in the livingroom or no more exotic flavored expresso's. I mean it girl!!!!
Yesterday I put on a pair of jeans, with a zipper and no stretch in a size 18 and wore them all day. I felt so beautiful I trotted around instead of walked and said good day to everyone. Even stopped to talk to an elderly stranger at the pharmacy. Smiled all day!
My goal is to have more of these trilling moments about myself. I need to start noticing each day, each moment of my life and see where I can improve my outlook by accomplishing happy things.
I am a 53 year old woman, wife, mom of 4 (aged between 34 to 13). Farmer. Recent kidney transplant recipient. I feel like I have gone through a curtain, and came out the other side.
A second chance on life.
And I want to live it to the fullest. I want to get stronger, faster and happier, and way more confident in who I am.
I love laughing. I see the world around me with humor. I have no focus, or great memory, or looks. But inside this blob is a happy fun creative woman waiting to come back out and dance, quilt, garden, travel, have parties as well as romance with the man who is still sticking with me.......
Barb...you did it again. How'd you know I'm feeling crappy today? I was feeling it yesterday too. Sometimes it's all so overwhelming, you know? Thanks for the kind words. Just seeing you appear on my Spark Page helps! Love ya, Marla

Thank you for the balloons & the cheers! This is odd. I was thinking of you yesterday & going to drop you a line but didn't get to it. My Granddaughter was looking at my friends in my spark friends list with me & she loved your avatar. She's only 8! Her name's Autumn. She asked me your name & I told her. But anyway, how you been? Doing good, I hope. I've upped my treadmill... now doing it 30 min. EVERYDAY... even dialysis day! Yesterday, I did an hour total plus I walked to a restaurant & back (for my sister's birthday lunch) & that added another 1/2 hour on. I feel good. I have to go to Pittsburgh tomorrow to get my fistula checked out & possibly have a stint put in. They did angioplasty but it's still narrowing. Thanks for stopping by Barb. Take care now. Luv ya, Marla

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog and the goodie! I love candles!!!. I found this goal hard to come up with as well. I just tried to remember a weight where I can pin point when I was there, what I was wearing, etc. and that helped!!! Good luck with setting yours! Amy

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. I've been going through a similar thing for 2-3 weeks now. I've missed playing music at the church the last Sunday and today plus rehearsals. This is just some sort of ugly thing that doesn't want to let go. You're a real winner. God bless you. I'm glad we've been able to connect. Feel better!
