HOW TO GAIN 10 POUNDS IN A FEW MINUTES

Wednesday, May 19, 2010


Go to the doctor and let the nurse weigh you. She weighed me today and said 172. I said "No way". She said yes it is 172. I said no it isn't.
I was looking at the scale and although I had just eaten and drank two glasses of water and had my shoes on I knew they didn't weigh that much.
So she looked again and said oh it is 162.
So if you want to gain weight just let the nurse weigh you
My blood pressure was real good and I wondered if that was right as it was lower than usual.

    I hate weighing in at the doctors office as it is usually at the end of the day, on my way home from work and I have all my "heavy clothes" (a lot more than I wear on my normal Saturday morning after I get up weigh ins. So many times I see a 10# difference.

So I never take their number seriously, but at the same time it will show the same amount of weight loss (or gain, unfortunately at times) as I would show at home.

Of course, when I do my physical, it's first thing in the morning, in the summer, so that I can dress as light as possible. emoticon

Anyway, I loved your story.

    Another way is if they have a digital scale and don't bother to zero it first! That is what happened to me one time. The scale did say a horrible number, but as I thought about it, I realized the nurse hadn't zeroed it before I stepped on. When I reweighed after it being zeroed, the scale was much more agreeable!

    Thanks for a good laugh. When I went to the midwife while pregnant with my children she would always let me tell her what I had weighed at home that morning instead of making me get on the scale at the office. I appreciated that trust and courtesy. Now I weigh in three times a week at a weight loss center and I am always very concerned about how much I have eaten or drank just prior to being weighed and even what clothes I picked to wear that day. At least you LOST 10 pounds as quickly as you put in on, LOL!

Mafia and drug wars in Mexico

Monday, May 17, 2010

Well, every day it is getting worse. They say now there is a mafia in Texas which originates from Mexico.
Also the drug people want to run the government so are killing the candidates who don't go along with them. One disappeared and they don't know where he is. Good people are afraid to run for office.
People are still dying.
People are still afraid to leave their homes especially at night.
I don't know when I will be able to go back to Mexico but we can't let the devil take over.
We must pray and believe. Our church is having a special night of prayer for Mexico I believe the 23rd.
Please pray with us.
Irene

SO WHAT HAPPENED IN MEXICO?

Sunday, May 16, 2010


First of all as most of you know I cancelled my short trip to Reynosa to see the church and Parsonage as well as the pastors. I called Mexico to let them know I would not be going and called the missionary lady here to let her know I would not be going.
On Thursday a politician was shot 3 blocks from the bridge we would have crossed. Then west of Reynosa a ways two more politicians were shot.
I know there is much going on that does not hit the news even here and everyone is in the dark concerning the fear the people live in.
People don't want to go to church or anywhere else at night. They just want to get in their houses and close the doors. I don't blame them. The streets are definitely not safe at night.
I know I will go again but at God's timing. When He says go we must go, when He says wait we must wait.
Slow and easy; stress free.
That is the way weight loss works also. Keep it stress free. Don't expect to lose 50 pounds in two months. Set small goals, know you will reach it then set another small goal then you will arrive.
God bless and continue to Pray for the US and for Mexico.
Irene

It's such a shame drugs have such a hold here or there, but they make a lot of money so as long as there is a market for it, this bloodshed will continue. The work you do is wonderful and I'm sure the Lord will lead you back when it's safe for you to go.

The Ups and Downs of Life

Friday, May 14, 2010

When I lived in Mexico I would often find scorpions in my shower and the tarantulas always looked for me out of doors and would get under my chair when we had outside services. Also one time I felt something in my instep and thought it was a leaf. It was a tarantula.
One time after I moved back up to the border my husband and I went down into Mexico where we were building churches and preaching.
We got a motel room in the best (?) one in town. Well it started raining cockroaches. All of a sudden I woke up. Something was crawling on my arm. It was a big cockroach or waterbug as some call them. I woke my husband and he killed it and told me to go back to sleep.
Then I saw One on the ceiling and he had to get that one also. Then I began to see them all over and saw they were coming in under the door to get out of the rain.
He said, turn the light off and just go back to sleep. I said you didn't have one crawling on you.
They feel creepy.
I would not turn the light off and watched as they multiplied before my eyes. LOL
It was 3:00 a.m. I said let's go home. We had finished what we went to do anyway and the rain had died down. I said I am not going to sleep anyway and I will drive the over 100 miles home and go to bed in my own bed.
I won as he saw he wasn't going to sleep either.
We have ups and downs in every aspect of our lives and eating healthy and exercising is no exception so we need to get back to home base and start over.
Don't let the cockroaches and tarantulas, chocolate and ice cream get the best of you.
Irene

What an interesting blog and of course the hairs went up on my arm. But what a great point you make and it is called choices, As you chose that night , not to subject yourself the the roaches, we also have the ability when our roaches try to control us. We can give in with no hope, or we can stand up and walk away, knowing it is no longer acceptable to us.

Mother's day Sad and Happy both.

Sunday, May 09, 2010


I have CRIED so much today. My pastor's wife asked me to pray for her last Sunday as she said she is going down fast (she had diabetes real bad and on dialysis, bad eye sight and they wanted to amputate her feet) but she wanted to go and see her mom and family in New York while she could. I wondered if she would return.
She passed away in New York. She was a great example of what a wife and mother should be and I loved her greatly.
God granted her her wish to see her family one last time.
On the UPSIDE
Sunday School was great. We didn't know about the pastor's wife yet. I asked everyone to tell who their favorite mother of the Bible was and they said Hanna.
And of course Samuel was mentioned and how God used him.
Then we heard about our pastor's wife. I couldn't quit crying as I had known her before they became our pastors and I have been her prayer partner all of that time.
I know she is with Jesus and is well and strong but I will miss her.
Then in the Service the youth pastor preached and he preached on Hanna and Samuel.
I have some good friends who just had a baby. They named him Samuel and God showed me in the service that my friends name is Iliana. Another Ana (as it is in Spanish) and they named their baby Samuel. They never even thought of her being Ana as I called today to ask. They said no, they never even thought of that.
Another thing God spoke to me this morning was that MY MOTHER also gave her first born (me) to be a missionary. I only saw my family once a year for about 3 days but she never complained. I didn't have a phone back then so all I could do was send letters by snail mail. My mother was a great lady and lived to be 99 1/2
After service a family in the church who adopted me into their family and would do anything for me invited me out to eat with them.
So as you see this has been a very sad day in one way and a happy day in another way.
God bless all of you and Happy mother's day.
Irene
SOMETHING I LEARNED LATER. Two hours after my pastors wife went to be with Jesus the pastor's grandmother decided to join her. The grandmother was 95.

  Irene, your weight loss is inspiring! I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your dear partner/friend. I'm all teary eyed emoticon and I was thrilled to know your Mother's day didn't turn out to be all depressing. It's amazing how God knows us all individually and how He comforts us and is always mindful of our very needs. It takes an incredible person to be a missionary, so I salute you. Now did you know there is still something important you can do for your late friend?. A year from now, you can help her by " having her sealed to her husband and to her family so they can all be united for "time and eternity"(not just for the time being). I'm a convert to the LDS, the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints. If you'd like to know more about it, shoot me an email and I will gladly give you the link, as long as it doesn't go against SparkPeople's rules. You'll be in our prayers, Irene.

I am just so grateful that he is with God all of his Grandmothers & 'Grandfathers & in not more pain. Our Daughters 3 Boys are Jewells & 2 of them out of College now & still remember to Call Grandma for all occasions. I just thank God for thei wonderful upbringing. & this year our sons daughter ( our only grandaughter) who also has graduated from College & she called me & we had a wonderful visit.

    Great blog! Mother's Day was hard for me this year after losing the baby, but our pastor preached on Hannah and Samuel as well and it was a blessing from the Lord!

    Thank you for sharing, Irene. It was sad but apparently the lady knew that it was time and wanting to see her family, that is wonderful. It is so hard to lose a friend, but you have such great memories.
