I am down another pound. This sticking to the plan seems to work.
I didn't want to weigh, but I knew I was losing, and how was I so sure, You ask??
My wedding rings are sliding all over my hand.....My guage for how well I am
doing without weighing .................

What is even funnier????? my doctors' scale weighs us(David & I) at exactly 6 pounds
LESS than our home scale. We go by the home scale tho.....

David has worked so hard on his weight, and believe me, when he gave up carbs he
has checked/double-checked every bite that goes in his mouth, and he is down to
(DRUM ROLL) a svelte 236..........................now if I could just get him to get more
involved on his Spark pages, but alas/alack- - not yet.....I perservere though...

Have a great rest of the week..........
Blessings on ya'll,

Nuttin' Honey-LOL

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Really haven't been doing much....we got thru the fair finally and since then
all it seems like we have done is run from doctor to doctor to doctor. I have
had continuous problems with this minor shoulder surgery, so the dr. has sent
me to Therapy which begins Thursday.....don't know how long, guess they will
see how well I do.

We are not getting our hopes up too high, but DH has been notified his case is
on the judge's desk for SS, so maybe we can get the bikes fixed by the time I
get able to ride..........I can dreammmm....right???????

Other than that, I lost the 6 lbs I gained, and then lost a couple more to top it
off. That made me happy........I am almost to the place I was before the stress
hit when he lost his job etcetcetc......as soon as I get there, then I will really
feel like I have done something and can get back on the road to goal..

Yay Spark.............

I Am Baaacccccckkkkk.....

Friday, August 14, 2009

I am back from my hospital experience. Tonight my shoulder is
more sore than it was, but I did go to get a haircut today because
I was desperate.

Ya'll wanna know what the first thing the ladies all screamed when
I walked in thru the door????? Oh my Gawd, she wrecked her bike,
say you didn't wreck your bike..........................so I said, No, I did
not wreck my bike.

The first time I walked in there with my face shield helmet and riding
clothes on, I got one of those bugeyed "is this person gonna rob us" looks
from all of them.............LOL

Anyway peeps, thanks for all the prayers, and all the messages of good
will. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.

I can't wait til I can get back on my Harley and will be riding without pain.

Update/Me&My Harley!!

Saturday, August 08, 2009

I just wanted to tell everyone that I will be AWOL for a bit.
I am having shoulder surgery on Tuesday(yes, if you are a
praying person,I covet your prayers). It makes me uncomfortable
to undergo anesthesia...
I don't know how I will be painwise, but if it is not terribly bad,
then I'll be on here typing with one hand.....
So please do not think I have disappeared, or fell off my diet wagon.

THE moral of this story is this: when you are short, and ride a lower
type Harley Davidson motorcycle, and you are going to load same on
to a trailer, do make sure YOU don't bottom out. I didn't even think
of that, and almost went off the ramp under the bike. I have always
done a lot of lifting and heavy work, never crossed my mind to let the
bike drop (because I knew I'd be under it) so progressively, over the
last several months the left shoulder has gotten to be so painful I can't
sleep w/o meds....

I also want to POST how proud I am of DAVID. He has lost an AMAZING
23 POUNDS as of this morning..........

Blessings all,

    I will definitely be praying for you on Tuesday especially and also for a quick recovery. I don't know David but I'm happy that he lost 23 pounds. It's always nice to hear of someone's success.

We never know.........

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

We never know, when you stop and think about it, when we talk with someone
or talk to them on spark, what that person is going through in their personal life.
I am going to make an effort to give someone on here an encouraging word or two
daily. I have read pain.....and I feel for those people...
Let's all of us try to be a little kinder to each other............

    Hello Darlene
I totally agree with you after all, it's a small world (like the song) and you may need someday. Darlene, thank you for sharing this and it's appreciated too. I try to help anyone that needs it, b/c that is me. I like to help others and it with kindness that I do it. Don't hesitate to ask me. I did not know the answer and I will to find it for you as well as me I am here for anyone. Talk to you later, take care, and have a nice weekend. (I know that I'm early on it, but I like doing some things early).

    Such a great plan! It takes so little to be kind and the kicker here is that you, too, will be blessed. Thanks for reminding us. That alone, will make us happy. To see the smile on someone else's face will give US that warm fuzzy feeling. We can do it on Spark. Touching each other with our kindness and helping us to appreciate things and people in our lives. Great idea, girl! emoticon emoticon

    yes kindness, but i think sometimes we also have to watch how we word things. you never know someone elses circumstances. if someone is grouchy or having a bad day it could be because someone else started it. so be kind and do like darlene is doing. just like a smile its infectious. bel

    I'm with you. I am always reminded that when I think I have it bad there is someone who has it much worse. It makes me feel good to help others and usually a kind word is all I have to give, Not much effort at all to make someone feel good. Thank you for your blog.
