Stampintina's Road to Less

Well, I just deleted my entire intro that has been here for years and just edited as I hit milestones.

Basically.... I have messed up royally. I was at 270.... I am back to 305. I hate it...

I weighed in at 270 the day I was rear ended at a stoplight. Feb 2009 It made HUGE changes to my body's ability to exercise how I was. between the muscles and back issues along with the rotator cuff tears.... uuuggghhhh the weight started creeping back on.

Well, I just deleted my entire intro that has been here for years and just edited as I hit milestones.

Basically.... I have messed up royally. I was at 270.... I am back to 305. I hate it...

I weighed in at 270 the day I was rear ended at a stoplight. Feb 2009 It made HUGE changes to my body's ability to exercise how I was. between the muscles and back issues along with the rotator cuff tears.... uuuggghhhh the weight started creeping back on.

I then found out that the "goiter" had changed! In one year my cystic growth with a fully "hot" or functional thyroid had changed. My thyroid L side had a 3.7 cm by 2.6 cm tumor and it was "cold." So they figured 95% chance it was cancer... after LOTS of prayer, I feel a miracle transcribed as what he removed (5.3.2010) did not even remotely resemble what the tests ALL showed it should have been. It was NOT cancer and as it still sits... my thyroid levels are still .1 and .01 within normal ranges. After dropping into lethargic weeks... I pushed the doctor a bit and he did start me on synthroid.

Well, a week after my surgery... so May 2010 I was again stopped and was rear-ended again. It is AWFUL... I had only been released by my chiropractor to go back to full workouts the DAY before...

So... I am embarrassed that I have regained, BUT I can totally do this again, and I pray you will all help support me in this process.

I am also now a TOPS chapter leader and I feel that TOPS is a powerful support to help to change our lives for the best.

I have 4 special needs boys that are now 13,12,10,9 (will be in a couple of weeks...)

So much to do.... I keep way too busy and am dealing with WAY too much stress.

Praying I can keep on track and do this again!
Hugs, Tina

Beauty Lies in the Beholder's Eyes

So many beauties in this appealing world,
The true beauty lies in the beholder's eyes.
There is beauty in the child's innocence and in mother's love,
There is beauty in a friend's affection and in a tender heart.
There is beauty in a pretty smile and caring eyes,
There is beauty in the morning sun and a rainy day.
There is beauty in the flaky slow and a pleasant spring,
There is beauty in the milky moon and the graceful rivers.
There is beauty in a hard earned victory and a hopeful soul,
There is beauty in me and beauty in you.
So many beauties in this spectacular world and its dazzling life,
And the true beauty lies in the beholder's eyes.

Your Friend Tina

I've been away for a while and wanted to check in and see how you're doing. I see you've run into a few snags along the way, as have I. You have shown that you are a very strong dedicated person, and I know you can do this!
