I am REALLY struggling ~ can't seem to get this weight to move in the RIGHT direction...I am NOT giving up, but feeling overwhelmed. Trying to get my blood sugars back under control. I am walking, but I keep messing up my calorie and food intake. UGH ~

My weight is a number

Thursday, April 05, 2012

So, tonight was my weigh-in. I thought maybe I would have a loss. I would take any amount as long as it was a loss. I thought that since I had added jogging intervals, that would have increased my chances for a loss. Not this week...I had a 1/4 lb gain. But, that is ok. I have come a VERY long way. That would have bothered me in the past and I might have gotten discouraged. BUT, not tonight! I just told the lady sitting beside me that I was ok. The weight is just a number. It DOES NOT define who I am. So, after my meeting, I had my "free" dinner ~ what I wanted (Wendy's chicken and small fries) and after logging on nutrition page only went over calories for the day by about 60 calories...not too bad. I also did 55 minutes on the treadmill. So, I am not discouraged ~ I am determined to NOT give up. Weight is just a number ~ it doesn't define who the person is.
Be encouraged and determined ~ Be patient. It is all good and we will get there!

    When you changed it did you save the changes? Sometimes when you save it it may not save it because of a glitch in the computer and you may have to do it again. Also there is a place where you put your measurements in that will change your weight too. It is at the place where you put your exercise minutes in and you can change it there too.

Mom is at peace

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

My sweet mom went to be with the Lord last Thursday morning. As hard as it is for me to let her go, I know she is with God and is no longer in pain. She is at peace. I am sad because she is my mom and we talked everyday. She had many friends and we were all blessed to have had her in our lives. She was a sweet lady I loved so much. She fought hard. The cancer did not beat her. The Lord had mercy and did not make her suffer. Thank you for all of your prayers.

    I'm sorry for our loss. It is hard when you see your parents suffering, but it's good to know that the suffering is no more and they are at peace with God.

    Oh I am so sorry for your loss. I talk w/my Mom every single day, too . . . sometimes twice/day . . . just to share the silly stuff, and all the rest life has to throw my way! Prayers.

My Mom is fighting her battle with breast cancer (diagnosed in June) and starts radiation today. I am so thankful that it was caught VERY early. She will have radiation 5 days/week x 3 weeks then 3 booster doses. It makes me sad to think of her going through this, but she's strong. And He is looking after her.

Prayers needed

Sunday, June 19, 2011

My mom has been in the ER Friday night - stayed overnight. Released yesterday and back today. They are keeping her again overnight. I know it is the cancer. I think they are just making her comfortable. But, I want to know what is going on with her. Well. I do and I don't. I just want her to be comfortable and not in pain. WELL, actually, I WANT THE CANCER GONE. Just please pray for her. Thank you!!!

    emoticon I will absolutely pray. May you be blessed. May your mother be blessed. Your brother and nephew too. And for comfort, you may find it helpful to read the Psalms. They are so beautiful. I find sometimes that they express my feelings better than I could.
