My Journey

Hello. I'm Gini. Welcome to my page.



.Dear Naysayers and those who have no idea of the struggles I go through,

No I don't spend too much time tracking my water and nutrition, considering what food I'm going to eat, reading the nutrition labels at the market, portioning out my food with a digital kitchen scale and measuring spoons, because I want to become the healthiest I can be more than I wanted to stay the same.

I am not the food ...
Hello. I'm Gini. Welcome to my page.



.Dear Naysayers and those who have no idea of the struggles I go through,

No I don't spend too much time tracking my water and nutrition, considering what food I'm going to eat, reading the nutrition labels at the market, portioning out my food with a digital kitchen scale and measuring spoons, because I want to become the healthiest I can be more than I wanted to stay the same.

I am not the food police. Believe me, I do not give one thought about what you're eating or how much. I am really focused on myself. No, that behavior doesn't make me selfish or self-absorbed. It's exactly the opposite. It's self-care and self-love. I finally got the fact that I'm absolutely, positively worth the time and effort and I'm never going to forget that again. That's okay, you don't have to understand or get it.

I do what it takes every day until it becomes second nature. I am getting there. I am close. What about you? Is your health important enough that you won't let anything get in your way until you achieve your goal? - Cheryl_Anne

Hi Thanks for stopping by my page. I really needed that. Well things are getting better. He trying to change his diet. It very hard for him. His sugar went from 597 down to 285. He has an doctor appt on Monday at 7:30 in the morning. The Er doctor gave him some meds for the inflammed chest wall. I have decieded to quit smoking again this time for good. I also start a new plan as I am trying Xenadrine 7X. I am hoping it works. I also decieded to let my girls who 11 and 10 walk their younger brother and sister to school every day and home. I made some great decisions this week and I feel good about them. I do miss my walks but I also need to start treating my girls like babies and start trusting them. So far they doing a great job. Me and Lance are taking one day at a time. Thanks for being there...
