It has been a very long time since I have been on spark. November was a difficult month. I got a call at around 5 in the morning and found out my sister overdosed with pills and alcohol. Thank God she is alive, and pulled through!
But it was a very difficult time. She was rushed by helicopter to a bigger city and hospital and was on life support. The doctors did not know how she was going to be when she woke up. There was a lot of praying and all of my family relatives and cousins came to see her, it was very serious.
There were several bottles found next to her bed and they had no way of telling exactly which pills she had taken for sure, since some were old bottles. So when she did wake up, she wasn't making any sense, she was talking a lot and really out of it, we worried about brain damage. It was so hard seeing her in that state, I can't ever remember being so sad or scared at all in my entire life. My heart goes out to the people who have been through life situations like this.
This has brought my family and me a lot closer. There have been times where I have not always gotten along with my sister. When something like this happens all you can think about is how much you love that person, and little arguments, well, they are just nothing now.
I just want to say too When this happened, it came as a shock, and I had no idea my sister was feeling the way she did. That's why if you are reading this, tell the people in your life how much you love them and how much they mean to you, because life is so short, and we never know how someone truly feels on the inside. Family and friendships are so important!

For the Sunny gal challenge this week in one of my teams, we are to go to this website which tells you your body fat percentage and then to blog. These were my results:
You have 44.4% body fat.
You have 143.4 Pounds of fat and 179.6 Pounds of lean (muscle, bone, body water)
*According to this that would put me at 225 pounds. I don't know if that is right for me or not, but that is definitely a goal I want to eventually reach compared to where I am now. I have not done perfect the past two weeks, but I believe it is all about making small steps. I look forward to getting past these 30 pounds and then finally posting some progress photos! Until then I will keep on going and try to make today a good day!

Well, I am actually DOING it. I have lost almost 15 pounds so far and am finally starting to make headway.
One day I just started to read blogs on here, how people were making progress, how GOOD they felt, and all of the hard work they did. I was so happy for them, and yet so motivated to reach that feeling as well.
I think I just needed to reach that point where I said, you know, there IS no easy route around this. If I am going to do this, it IS going to be difficult. I am going to have to not overeat at times, not go overboard in the kitchen at night and to stop the bargaining thing: "Maybe I will eat just a little. Well, ONE extra piece wont hurt me. Or, the classic: "I"LL START TOMORROW!"
Well guess what! I have been saying that for YEARS and it never happened. One day I just decided, no more tomorrows! NOW is the time! I feel I am finally starting to break the habit. Some nights it is more difficult then others. But I am just plain tired of feeling low energy and not being able to fit into nicer clothes. I am almost pre diabetes, and my triglyceroids are high. this is a WAKEUP call for me. Two family members of mine both had heart attacks in their 30's, and I am 28. I want to change and take care of my body, improve my health.
My depression feels more stable, my anxiety level is going down, and best of all I have HOPE. And Gratitude because I know God is bringing people into my life to motivate and support me. And that I am not alone on my spark journey. People are here, and know what I'm going through. I want you to know friends I am always here, and if you need support/friendship Send me a spark mail. I have always held the attitude a person can never have too many friends.
I am feeling good, and if only just 15 pounds so far, I worked very hard to get rid of those 15, and now I KNOW I am going to keep going!!! I'm not exactly where I want to be, but I know that I am on my way!
