How Many Times

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

How many times do I have to lose this same 49lbs before the idea sticks. I get sidetracked and the next thing you know I have put back on what I had lost. I really hope this will be the magic moment.

    Thank you for sharing your up and down weight loss journey. Believe it or not it was encouraging to me. I am not alone. I just got back from a doctor's appointment where I found I gained 7 pounds in 6 months. Now, I have that much more to lose... but I am back on track. Good luck with reaching your goal again. We can do it. emoticon

Crazy end to year

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Christmas was great! Family over for dinner. Very enjoyable. Went to bed that night and everything changed! Sick all night. Was sure I had poisoned everyone who had been there. Next day more of the same and then it got to the point where my insides felt bruised. I thought, "This is what you get for the pumpkin pie, pig picking cake and second helping of mashed potatoes!! Finally by Friday I couldn't stand it anymore and went to the emergency room. After about 7 hours of tests and trying to decide where to put me they transferred me to a hospital south of here. I apparently had a very infected gall bladder. Stayed there until Tuesday, on antibiotics, and they discharged me on Tuesday. It was the greatest Birthday gift !!! At least, I hadn' t given myself food poisoning or for that matter anyone else that had dinner with me.
Will have surgery in about two weeks and that will be the end of my great adventure.
Hope everyone had a great holiday and a Happy New Year.

I notice your fitness minutes have dropped off.

In Reverse

Monday, December 02, 2013

Seem to have adopted an "I don't care " attitude. I guess the events of the last month have taken a toll. I really need to pull myself out of this slump!! Grieving has gone on long enough. Debbi wouldn't want me to torpedo everything I have achieved so far. She would be the first to say "enough!"
Time to get out of reverse mode and move forward. I know I can do this!

    I am where you were at the time you wrote this blog now. I am really trying not to gain the weight back, but I know I need to get myself back on track before I lose myself in this unhealthy eating and lack of exercising.

    Yes with God's help you CAN do this!

Sometimes we need His help. He will help you to find the way from the grief with amazing love!

My main goal is still to reach 155lbs. That will enable me to become a KOPS member which is another long term goal. I am greedy for all the wonderful things God has given me. I want to see the fifth generation of my family. The further along I go on this journey the more I see things I will be able to do that weren't possible during my "old" life.
