Trip/and yes I'm going to drive/and yes alone

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Hi to everyone out there fighting the battle, knowing the victory is yours.
What a change losing weight made in my life. It is so exciting to buy my clothes from the regular misses or petite sizes now instead of having to order from the women's catalogues. I say order as I did not have the stamina to shop. Still working on that.
Soon I will leave for a over 3,000 mile round trip to Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas and back. I will be attending a convention in my home church in Missouri, attend a 40 year church anniversary in Oklahoma, preach in several churches and visit family and friends.
As you notice in my title I already answered your questions, which are "Are you going to drive", (how else would I go emoticon) and are you going alone (I have no one to go with me but the Lord).
People think because I am 80 I am over the hill. Well, might be their hill but not mine. I am just beginning to live as this new me.

    Wow! That's a long trip to make all alone! I have to hand it to you - you have a lot of courage! I'll be praying for you.

We're getting ready to leave the valley for a long trip too. We're going to Colorado to spend the summer in our RV - fishing and hiking. I'll be driving our little car all the way, and my husband will be driving the truck with our 5th wheel camper, but at least I have my husband to share the road with and to chat with when we stop for a rest. I'll se you in the fall!

They didn't know me

Sunday, June 01, 2008

Hi all: I am travelling and have been for over two weeks and have a little over two weeks before returning home.
Just wanted to tell you, people who had known me for years didn't know me. My weight loss has so many benefits. Also had my hair styled by a member of the church where I preached this morning.
New me! Inside and out.

Queen and graduation

Saturday, May 10, 2008

Hi All:
I hope I am doing this right. As you know I reached my goal weight on November the 15th and have not gone above it since then.
The last part of April our weight loss club had a big two day ceremony in Lufkin Texas where district queen's and king's were chosen as well as the state queen and king. Also those who had reached their goal weight in 2007 graduated with tassle and all. It was an awesome time.
I was queen of our chapter and our district and also graduated. That meant I lost more weight than anyone else in 2007 for our chapter and our district. I also received tropies and ribbons from other ceremonies.
Please don't think I am bragging. I just want you to know:
If I can do it you can. I had tried and tried before but didn't reach my goal except one time then didn't keep it off as I always thought, "when I reach my goal I can begin eating again" and eat I did and all those pounds came rolling back along and brought some of their friends with them.
I appreciate Sparks and your helpful articles.

    Hi Irene,

Congratulations for reaching your goal. You are an inspiration. Your ceremony sounds like TOPS. Are you a TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) member?
