Haven't Lost & Haven't Gained

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

After losing a hundred pounds my body has finally reached a point where it isn't moving up or down. :)

I would like to get to 125 or even back to 110 but my body says not right now...that's okay!

Don't want to be too hard on myself...when my body, mind and soul is ready to continue it will do so naturally. I am not going to push myself or beat myself up about it.

I look in the mirror and say I am not where I want to be BUT I'm not where I use to be so it's all good. :)

Having some health issues which has stalled my workout until the doctor can tell me what is going on, I have decided to stop working out to see if that will make a difference. Imagine a doctor telling you they don't know why you are having abdominal pain and that they have to wait until new symptoms appear...okay hope it's nothing serious...I remember my baby brother had his appendix rupture and he complained about pain in the abdomen...I have no clue what it can be....going to put it in GOD's hands and do the wait and see with the doctor. :)

Once I find out what it is and I am able to get back to working out, the weight will come off again...until then I will keep an eye on the scale to make sure I don't gain either. :) Scale down good...scale up I will be heart broken...worked too hard to gain any of it back. Would rather work out in pain then gain....

Have another doctor's appointment on Oct 16th unless something takes a turn for the worse.

Praying for GOD's healing power....or the Doctor's enlightenment as to what is wrong and it's curable.

Hope you are having success on your journey to a healthier you! My prayer for you is that you reach goal but most importantly that you enjoy the journey along the way with GOD's blessing.

Hugs,
Lisa

    My prayers are with you Lisa! I agree with CapeCod, did you think about getting a second opinion? Did the doctor exhaust all of the possible tests that can be done?

You have the perfect attitude and that is the most important aspect. God does hear and respond to prayer. You are a blessed child of God and you have a lot of people here that care a great deal about you. Hopes and prayers that you find that cause of your pain as soon as possible!

    Thank you for the replies....

I ended up with another symptom....I called the doctor today and they want me to be seen again....Doctor mentioned gallbladder and or something to do with my aorta....will find out more when I see them and get more tests done. Feel like I'm on Dr House LOL

Back pain now along with the abdominal pain, hope they don't want me to wait for anything else to show up. :) Yikes...

Will update my blog when I get more information....I am still just praying for GOD to show me how this will bring glory to HIM....GOD does turn all things around for our good....I want to smile and touch lives so maybe my needing to see the doctor will give me the opportunity to meet people that need encouragement....It's all good no matter what happens. :)

Thank you for the prayers....GOD does hear when we pray especially when we pray for others....

If there is anything I can pray for you specifically...please send me a spark mail.

Hugs and love

Lisa

    Keeping you in my thoughts!
Glad you are okay with waiting to see what is going on instead of push, push to get there!

    You're putting yourself in the best of all possible hands! There's just no better way to approach it, is there?

Congratulations on the hundred pound weight loss. I need to lose close to that (or I did, when I started....15 pounds in), so you are an inspiration to me!

Looking for walking partner

Friday, September 06, 2013

If you live in NH or near NH close to Kingston NH or Plaistow NH and would like to walk or hike please respond.

I am new to NH and looking for spark friends that live near.

Have 30 more lbs to lose and would really enjoy friends that are on the same path to goal. :)

Hope to find a few friends here...can't believe I am having so much difficulty finding people in NH that enjoy hiking or walking. LOL Go figure. :)

Any suggestions on how to find active friends would be appreciated....

Hugs,
Lisa

    Is there a Meetup.com group devoted to hiking near you? If not, maybe you could start one.

There's also a group called TrailDames.com. Maybe they have a group near you.


And who'd think with all the natural beauty and mountains in NH you'd have trouble finding hikers? emoticon

Good luck!

    Thank you but I have only known him since July 6th...is it possible to fall in love so quickly? I do know that the man he is showing me makes me feel awesome and special. If he falls in love with me then I will be the luckiest woman alive and will do what ever it takes to let him know how much he means to me and what he does matters to me and my response to what he does will show my feelings of respect and honor for whom he is and how he treats me. Love is something I have longed to give and he deserves that and more :) Yes I am a very happy woman.

Another poem I wrote for my man

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Draw me closer:


Bring out my desire to love you; draw me to you now…and I will give you my heart this is my solemn vow.

Make my heart sing a song it’s never known before, and I will sing your song of love to you, the man I adore.

Show me what true love is from deep within and I will respond likewise as your lover and best friend.

Poem I wrote to my sweetheart :)

Sunday, July 21, 2013


Unconditional Love:



Love is a priceless gift when given selflessly and the joy of giving brings peace inside of me.

How I longed for loves true bliss to touch my soul within, as two hearts become one the memories begin.

Hold me gentle in your arms, show me that you care and this road we travel will be ours to share.

Through the struggles life will bring we go hand and hand overcoming the hard times with love in command.
