TOLD MY OVERWEIGHT DOCTOR ABOUT SPARK

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Today was fun day. Not SONday. emoticon
It was the day I went to my doctor and endured the sitting for two hours.
Yes, I said emoticon 2 hours.
What was going on?
Who had an emergency?
When the doc finally came in he said he had hit a dog on his way to work.
He called 911 because he had hit a emoticon
They told him to call the police. The police didn't answer so he turned around and went back. He had not stopped since the traffic was heavy.
When he got back he found the dog in a neighbor's arms and the dog had a broken leg.
Workers had let the dog out and he had run into the street.

NOW HE WAS VERY PLEASED WITH MY WEIGHT LOSS
He said TOPS was good for me.
I said yes and Sparks online was also good so gave him a spark card and told him it was free.
He is emoticon(well not quite that bad) and has nurses emoticon also. They wrote sparkpeople.com on a bulletin board and hope will be looking it up and recommending it to some of his patients also.
emoticon emoticon
Get the word out about SPARK

He wasn't so happy about some other things so I am to have an MRI on a knee Monday as it locks on me sometimes then later will be having a colonoscopy.
My very favorite thing to do!!!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
So trying to get this body back into shape.

    Your doc BETTER have gone back to check on the dog - you know me I would have stopped traffic - well put it this way - I have stopped traffic for animals that other people have hit.

Let us know about your up coming test

Your friend from one of the "little towns"!!!

By the way, it kind of struck me as strange for an educated person to call 911 for an injured dog ~ sounds like something one of my kids would have done when they were little boys! emoticon emoticon

You are doing a great amount of work on yourself, sorry you are going to go through some tests, but you will have good results. Doctors seem to think they don't have to be on time to see patients, at least people should be told ahead of time there are delays.
Congratulations on telling them about Spark. There was an article the other day about the high rate of obesity in doctors. Maybe someone in his office will check us out. You can only give the information.

UPDATE ON MEXICO

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Several gun battles reported in Matamoros; CBP temporarily closed bridges

September 14, 2010 8:17 AM

Matamoros is about 60 miles from us. It seems they just move up and down the border.
I was able to take what I needed to take to our side of the bridge to give to the pastor's family earlier.
God makes a way and we are believing God is going to move in this situation.
Greater is He that is in us than He who is in the world.

The Brownsville Herald
Mexican authorities have confirmed several shootouts through the streets of Matamoros, while US. authorities confirmed the temporary closing of two international bridges.

The shootouts took place late Monday night and early this morning for approximately two hours between the Mexican Military and various groups of armed gunmen from both the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas, said a Mexican law enforcement official who asked that his name not be released citing security reasons.

The shootouts were reported in various areas as the gunmen fought and moved spraying the streets with gunfire and multiple grenades. The areas where the shootouts took place include Fraccionamiento Rio, Colonia Del Carmen, Colonia Jardin, which is near the Gateway International Bridge, Calle Sexta, Lauro Villar, which is near the Los Tomates Bridge or Veterans Bridge.

As a result of an incident in Matamoros, Tamaulipas and at the request of the Mexican government, traffic was halted on both the Gateway and B&M international bridges for about 20 minutes as a precautionary measure, said U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Eddie Perez.

As always, CBP's top priority is the safety of the traveling public and our officers, Perez said. CBP is in constant communication with our partners in Mexico and we continue to monitor any and all situations.

Hours earlier, on Monday afternoon, a grenade attack was reported at the offices of the Mexican Attorney General's Office-- PGR in Matamoros which lies along Calle Sexta, just a few blocks from the Gateway International Bridge, the source said. No shots were fired during the grenade attack.

According to the source, a vehicle drove by the office and threw a grenade at it causing some damage to some SUVs that were parked outside. The SUVs had been seized in another case and were being held as evidence.

The PGR office in Matamoros has become a regular target for members of organized crime. Last month at least four separate grenade attacks took place.

Reports of gunfire and explosions in Matamoros shortly preceded a request from the Mexican government to stop traffic into Mexico overnight.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Spokesman Eddie Perez said it happened after midnight, and the sheriffs department halted traffic at the Gateway and B&M international bridges for about 20 minutes.

Perez said CBP will continue monitoring this situation, maintaining its priority for its officers and the traveling public.

ANOTHER MIRACLE

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

A friend told me of a miracle that God did for him today so I told him I would write a blog of a miracle God did for me since it was too much to write on his spark mail.
THIS HAPPENED YEARS AGO.
I was travelling in Oklahoma. Two lady friends and I had been to a convention in a church in Oklahoma City. Convention was over. We couldn't sleep so decided to get up and drive back to Joplin Missouri where they lived.
We packed our stuff and opened the door. We couldn't believe our eyes. Snow everywhere and deep.
We decided to go anyway. I had no chains and don't think any snow tires but went across the turnpike. What guided me was the tail lights of the cars in front of me. The windshield started getting covered with snow. The windshield wipers couldn't keep up with it.
So out I would get clean off the windshield and go again. Finally I just couldn't keep up with it so I prayed.
Lord let the snow not touch my windshield. Then I saw the snow begin to rise over the car and it did not hit the windshield. I asked the ladies to look and see where the snow was hitting. They said it was not hitting the car at all.
I got to the toll booth at Tulsa and tried to cut the wheels so I would be closer to the booth but they would not cut so I had to get out and knock the ice off from around the tires.
We stopped and had coffee and it cleared up and we drove on to Joplin.
Now if God can do that
HE CAN HELP US TO LOSE WEIGHT IF WE ARE DESPERATE ENOUGH.

Thank you for sharing your miracle with us. It certainly was there when you needed it. The problem I see for so many, is that they pray for help and don't recognize when the help appears. It is a blessing when one is alert to the power of God's answer. Your comment about God protecting us when we don't even realize it. We take to many things for granted and need to become more open to the answer.
Your blog is a great suggestion of what could happen in one's life.

HURRICANE

Monday, September 06, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Please pray for our area as a hurricane is supposed to come in soon right where Alex came in before (more or less).
The land is still soaked from Alex.
So many things going on all over the world.
Weird weather.
Murders.
Kidnappings.
I could go on and on.
This is not something presidents or kings can fix.
It is something which calls us to obey:
2 Chron. 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and pray,
and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
THEN will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.
Hope everyone is having a good time today. I will leave about 5:30 for my friends unless it starts raining. The hurricane isn't supposed to come in until midnight someone said.
God bless you all.
Irene

TWO GREAT VICTORIES

Friday, September 03, 2010

emoticonYesterday I weighed in as many of you already know. I lost 2.25 pounds and am just 1/4 pound from my goal weight. I'm so happy. Now I must reach it and get a little below so I have a safety net.
I did not eat good for me at noon but I will tonight and try to be good the rest of the week.

SECOND GOOD REPORT I went to the bridge on the American side and met the pastor's wifes sister at a restaurant. I was able to pray with her for several situations and give her what I had for her.
Everything was tranquil and I was back closer to home in a few minutes.
We worry about going to Mexico!!!!!!!!!!!!
They had a shoot out a few days ago in Roma Texas just about 50 miles from me and where I lived when first coming to the area.
God is good. I felt safe and cared for although I went alone.
Thank everyone for your prayers and kind words.
Irene

    Congratulations on your weight loss, 4 ozs to go, that is nothing, you will make it below your goal by next week.
I knew you would be safe going to the border, GOD IS WITH YOU,, but you were still very brave going on your own.
Keep up the good work, and take good care of yourself
Love Lee

    Hi Irene
You really have done a fantastic job in reaching your goal and I say that because 1/4 pound or 4 oz is at the weight, You will have an adjustment to settle in on your weight and what it should be.
I am glad that you were able to do your thing with your friend and that you felt safe.
Perhaps there will be a day that all people can live with out the fear of violence. We can always pray and hope for peace.

    IRENE: I knew you'd do it! And you'll lose those 4 oz. easy! Congrats.
As for Mexico, I think what everyone's worried about is whether or not you could depend on the police in the event something happened. The media says that the Mexican police are in cahoots with the criminals. But what do I know? I'm just happy that you're happy again. And as for crazy Texas, wasn't that Mexico at one time? LOL.

  You are such a true. and dedicated Christian. I so enjoy reading your Blogs.
We have to have Faith each day to get us through. Without our Faith we would be lost.

Have a great night's rest. You have done your Good Deed for the day.
