Going to give this up for a while

Monday, September 03, 2012

Well it seems I am going in the wrong direction "weight wise" and I am not happy about it and somewhat embarrassed. :(

I am still going to try walking some everyday and also try as much as I can to watch what I eat. The walking part will be somewhat easy but the watching what I eat, well........

Maybe once I start taking off some pounds I'll come back. I don't know.

I am not going to delete my account but you most likely won't see any posts or activity from me for a while.

    Please do not be embarrassed, and do not stop coming on here. Are you tracking your calorie intake and your activity? weight loss takes time and there is so many people on here that can help you. You are headed in the right direction if you stick it out here. If you need someone to talk to I am here for you. I have lots of pounds to shed so I will be here for a long time and plan to continue being active on here even after I reach my goal...

Sorry I've gotten off track

Saturday, September 01, 2012

So I haven't been walking or watching what I eat or anything this week "health-wise". Well not completely true. I am trying to eat more iron rich foods to build up my hematocrit. I tried to donate blood this past Tuesday and it was too low to donate. :(
I wanted to donate in my aunt's honor as I was unable to attend her memorial service and her burial.
I've been fairly bummed about it (her death) all week.
So I realize I need to get myself together and get back on track. I am hoping to tomorrow.
Will start building up my walking minutes again. Will start off with 10-15 mins a day and build up from there.
Please keep me in prayer and good thoughts. Thanks.

    Thank you for your honesty. Praying that you are able to remember the good things about your Aunt and they make you smile. We all have moments, days or even weeks that we don't do our best but we get back on track. I know you can do it--I believe in you. One step at a time will make the difference in the long run.

God's grace and peace,

My aunt's death and other stuff

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Well this past week has not been good. Long story but my cousin and I have had a falling out. She claims she never wants to see or hear from me again, ever. She took something I said on Facebook the wrong way. Unfortunately, she doesn't want to hear my side of it. Now I can't even go to my aunt's funeral. :( I have been struggling with my feelings and emotions and so I have not been walking or watching what I eat either. One day I was not going to eat at all and then changed my mind. I didn't binge eat or anything like that but I didn't watch what I ate either. I was considering suicide by starvation with water only.
Anyway my Dear Aunt Ina passed away on Friday- Aug. 24. I miss her terribly. I haven't seen her in 7 years since she moved from just a few miles from me all the way to Fairport, NY.
She was 97. She was a huge part of my life the lives of my family, my husband and children.
I had a cup of tea in her honor yesterday. She loved her tea! Although I could never drink my tea the way she did! Straight with lots of lemon juice and no sugar!!
She also loved to garden but I don't think she was able to do that after she moved.
She will be greatly missed!!

Here's to you Aunt Ina!!


My aunt is not doing too well

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

So I was on Facebook a little while ago and see a post from one of my cousins. She mentions that she and her three kids are going out to Rochester to say goodbye to their grandmother. Their grandmother is my aunt. She's 97. As a matter of fact she turned 97 on the 4th of July! She's our "Yankee Doodle Dandee!!"

From what I could find out from my cousins husband- my aunt has been place on bed rest but she's not doing so well and hasn't been for some time. I did see she was hooked up to oxygen in the picture of her that my cousin posted on her birthday.

Anyway... apparently she could go any day but may live for a few more months. I wish someone had called me. Or even e-mailed me. I am very sad and upset over this.
Please keep my aunt (Aunt Ina) in prayer. Thank you.

Well at least the weather's nice....

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Very disappointed & discouraged this morning. I haven't lost any weight. It's the same as it was last Sunday. I can only hope that all that walking I did kept it from being even more.
I guess I really need to be more vigilant about what I eat. Maybe I'll just starve myself to death!! OK- No, I won't do that but seems like with all that walking I've been doing everyday, I would have lost something!! I don't get it!! :(
Aaaaand my kitty might be sick. She was coughing this morning when I got up to go to the bathroom (and take my weight) a little after 8 a.m. I gave a little water in a cup and she drank some of it but don't know if it helped any. I let her back out of my room and went back to bed to sleep a while longer. I was up last night/this morning to watch the meteor shower. Didn't really see many though.

    I think it's all related to the calorie intake. I've been stalled the last couple of weeks and decided to track absolutely every single calorie..what an eye opener..everything adds up and all that exercise doesn't burn enough calories to add up to weight loss. I'd suggest treating food tracking like a "must" every day and you will see results. Good luck! emoticon
