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.

    How are you doing after the surgery?

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!

    The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

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

    When I'm having a difficult time like this, I have to allow myself to go thorough the emotions. After that, I find a new inspiration to focus on a get myself back on track. Find a spark and go for it. emoticon

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.

Now listen up!!

Saturday, July 20, 2013

Okay. You really enjoyed hearing from your customers that hadn't seen you in a while that they were impressed with your weight loss. Now you need to remember that feeling every time you are tempted to have an evening like your last two. You did okay until after dinner. Then you decided to just let go and eat what you wanted. Let's face it - you weren't hungry - just going back to some old bad habits! You have come too far and accomplished to0 much to just turn your back on your new way of life. You don't want to go back to feeling terrible and not being able to do the things you are now able to do. Pick yourself up and continue on because the goal is not as far away as it once was. You can do it!! I happen to know that at heart you are an achiever!!!
Now I just have to listen to me and my good advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GREAT Pep talk- something everyone needs to hear when they allow a few unhealthy choices to dance into the routine. Time to take care of the mis-step and move to the healthier tune and keep moving forward. emoticon

    It is GREAT advice! Yes, it's easier to give it to others than take it ourselves, isn't it! Ok, that said, YOU CAN DO IT!
