Mar, First of all, cut & paste this what you wrote on my blog: "There's actually failure written in the statement that your going to do everything right "from now on", everything will be different! Nope! The truth is you're going to learn to change, you're not going to be perfect (you just need progress), you're going to relearn your behavior and take small steps towards living life in a healthy manner. You are not going to constantly deny yourself, or you will crumble when you have a food you think is forbidden! It's all a different way of thinking and behaving...learn as you go! Remember it's a lifestyle, not a diet (those were the magic words for me when I joined Spark)! You don't start and end! You work on it from now until you're no longer a breathing person! " You must post this asap because what you wrote will help so many sparkers! I couldn't of said this any better, you have a way with words and this is priceless. This is exactly what you must do to be successful. Please do this for me and for all of us Mar! Tomorrow, Lucy Lou is getting her "toophers cleaned." It has to be done, she has never had her teeth cleaned before, (no comment,) and they have to put her under when doing it. SO no walk tomorrow. But on Wednesday we will hopefully run into Daisy and I will snap some shots. I am sorry Dan is not doing well. It puts so much strain on you Mary, not a good thing at all. My dear friend, can you escape anywhere to be away from his behavior for awhile when it gets really bad? Friends perhaps? Even a sweet b&b for an overnight. You must take care of yourself. I worry about you. 5 days ago
Mary, My son is still in Wichita.... still having transmission troubles. He'll see a mechanic tomorrow. If it's too expensive to fix... he'll sell it for whatever he can get & rent a car for the drive home. We had a long chat today. He had a plan & an expensive repair was not part of that plan. Wichita is very hot & humid. He is missing the nice weather in Colorado. I will keep you in the loop.
