Started on a New Team today:

Sunday, October 06, 2013

I joined a new spark team today called "http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups
_individual.asp?gid=51755" and I feel they can be really helpful because evenings are my downfall. I introduced myself to them with: I don't know who sent this link to my email but thank God you did.. This is me in a nutshell. I wake up every morning with good intentions. I drink my coffee, my oat meal or my shake. I drink my water, I snack on fruit and veggies and feel good about myself but by night fall. i start my stroll from the kitchen to the bedroom. Chips or popcorn, ice cream Little Debbie whatever. I go grocery shopping and buy healthy stuff, husband goes comes back with chips 4 different kinds of ice cream cookies, and 4 boxes of Little Debbie Snack cakes. He knows I am like a dope fiend when it comes to having this stuff in the house but continues to do this. I had lost 28 pounds not I have gained that back plus close to 300 pounds again.(Highest was 308). At 5"1 I can barely walk to bathroom without huffing and puffing. I know ihave no support system, If I only had someone in my area with this struggle to go to pool or ride the bike at the gym because of arthritis I need low impact exe. It is a mighty struggle for me. Especially when it seems I'm being sabotaged in my own home. I am beginning to get bouts of depression when I want to mop or clean my room but I am out of breath I am sitting and trying to do what I can. I do not want to get bed ridden and I fear I am headed that way if I can't get a grip....t's not good for me I know my health is in danger but I continue to do this night after night. This sums it up in a nut shell. I hope I can get the support that I am expecting because this is what I need. I have not. I will discribe my relationship with my husband in another blog and I think you will get a better picture of my life but for the time being it is my life and I am dealing with it...Wish me luck I am adding journaling, blogging, scriptures into my new determination program.

Starting Over

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I had been having a lot of issuses with my osto. arth. and gout, well it seems that doc. may have gotten mea medication that actually works. I have gone the past few days with less stiffness and no pain for once. I find myself wanting to go shopping andto the store. Walking better to classes. I actual feel almost good. I hope this continues and I hopethat with this allowing me to be more active that I will begin to drop more pounds which will only cause me to feel better anddo more. For once the cycle is in my favor. I am going to begin to start going back to the pool. I wish that there was a work out group of older, overweight women likemyself so I can engage in the social aspec of it all, maybe I will have to start one myself. I feel optomistic and I may actually be able to walk across the stage to get my BA degree in May. God has taken me a long way and I am depending on him to help me with this. He has never let me down before once he's known my heart and I am sure he will allow me to bea this too and I promiseto use it for his good. I have so much more I want to do, I haveto ge fit to carry out my mission.
