As most of you know my mother's been in the hospital 3 weeks today.
Yest. they transferred her to another hospital to have a procedure done and then she was to bring her back. Last night I heard from my sister that she'd been at the other hospital since 10am waiting to have her angioplasty done, she phoned and left a message on my sister's phone at 4:30, still hadn't gone in but should be going in an hour's time.
My sister phoned the first hospital last night to find out if she had gotten back, they hadn't heard anything so assumed they would be keeping her at the other hospital.
When I got to work this morning and checked my e-mails my sister hadn't heard anything. So I phoned the first hospital and spoke with the head nurse. Apparently she didn't have her procedure but will have it today and she figured they would probably get a phone call tomorrow to prepare her bed for her return.
So to answer everyone's questions for an update on mom..... it's very hard to give anyone answers when I don't know them myself.
The other thing is, this is very stressful and when my weight concillor tells me stress can cause weight gain I really believe it. I've had the same week as far as eating as I always have, except one slip up the other evening..... 4 timbits, and have probably gained about 3 to 4 lbs this week ( now that's my Wii Fit telling me that, I just use it to judge how my week is going) Yes, my Simply For Life scale is the real one I go by, but when things start getting frustrating, it sure can reflect in what is going on with the scale.
many thanks to all for your prayers, thoughts, and concerns and when I find out anything I will pass the info on to all.

There is enough grief on our board today, but just wanted to post my own Blog !
Received word about 3 hours ago about the passing of an older cousin, Robert only 71 yrs young.
Just a year ago he was leaving the hospital, being there on a survey program, and suffered a heart attack in the parking lot.
When he hit the pavement it cause brain damage. He has remained in hospital all this time, in a comma for quite a while, then hooked up to many tubes including a feeding tube. This once vibrant man dwindled away to nothing, at times not even being aware of life around him.
Now he is with our Lord.
He leaves behind a grieving, wife Coral, 2 daughters Cyndi and Angeli, 3 grandsons, a mother Rowena (93 yrs old), a sister Norah, one nephew Andrew, one niece Tammy, many aunts, uncles, and cousins, and numerous friends.
Please remember my family at this sad time, but rejoice in the full life he lead, and has now gone to his reward, he was a faithful servant of God.

I having been looking for quite a long time for my own little puppy and couldn't quite make up my mind what I wanted. There are so many wonderful breeds out there and today I finally made my decision and rather than wait for the weekend when travelling didn't look too good, I took the afternoon off from work and went and picked up the newest addition to our family.
Her name is Sasha and she is an 11 week old Yorkie ! So far she's been very good, not saying what my night will be like, but I know she'll be loved.
So far she has wormed her way into Shannon's heart, and even though it's "my puppy" she's spent the evening laying on the couch with him.

Did I reach my goal I set for the month of December? Yes I did and am very proud of it.
I was at 253 lbs and wanted to get into the 240's, but also set a goal to maintain my weight for the month of December.
I had lost 3 lbs as of Dec.20th, and which would allow me a gain of those 3 lbs for extra eating over the holidays.
On Jan.3/09 I weighed in at 249 lbs, which meant I did not gain back those 3 lbs but had another 1 lb loss, and into the 240's. This means since August 16/08 I lost a total of 43.5 lbs.
I have 6.5 lbs to go to reach my 50 lb loss since joining Simply for Life.
So for the month of January my goal is to reach the 50 lb mark by the end of January.

It's a new month. I just wanted to post my goals for the month.
At present I am at 253 lbs, I want to get into the 240's, so that's just over 3 lbs to lose to accomplish this goal.
My next goal is to not gain over the Christmas holidays.
I refuse to set a goal for weight loss over the month of December due to all the celebrating with friends and family, and I don't want to sabotage my efforts to date. I just want to make it over the holidays without gaining.
I have set a goal to be 50 lbs gone by the end of January, so I don't believe I'm setting myself up for any failure.
I will be accomplishing my goals by sticking with my present lifestyle. It is working for me so why change it. I totally love being in control for once in my life.
I also wanted to share with all my friends about a lady that made a point of coming into my office today. The first thing she wanted was to hug me, then she wanted to tell me how proud she was of what I have accomplished. She also had something she wanted to give to me, she had a picture of 3 butterflies hovering over a beautiful flower, she had taken the picture one summer in her yard. It is just beautiful.
Why did she give this to me? She told me about 2 weeks ago that I reminded her of a butterfly, my new transformation. So this picture is for me to keep and to remember what I am doing.
It really is a beautiful picture and I was so proud to receive it. I will display it in my home in an area where I can enjoy it.
The funny thing is that I have been planning to have a tattoo when I reach my 50 lb goal, after looking at so many I had decided a while back that it would be a butterfly with 5 stars, each star representing 10 lbs.
