Starting over

Sunday, August 09, 2009

Hi everyone,

I have missed you all terribly, I am sorry I have been awol.

A lot has happened in the last month. My daughter-in-law lost her baby. We found out my father-in-law has three months to live due to lung cancer. Same thing that took my mom two years ago. So it's been pretty stressful.

As for my son we finally got to see the neurogolist he doesn't know what is wrong with him, but the doctor was thorough and is determined to find out. Right now he says it might be low blood pressure, or because he has a low heart rate. He is going to send him to get a tilt a table test, and have a heart machine monitor him for 48hrs. We are still waiting to see the specialist about Chrones disease. I hate to wait.

One good thing last week I finally got my promotion it starts on Monday. I will be working more hours, but the better pay will make it worth while. My next stop is my own store..who knows.

As for me personally I have lost and gained and lost and gained. Right now I am sitting at a 10lbs gain. I have stopped walking, and going to curves. My life is going to change with the hours that I am going to be working and I figured there is no better time to get back to it. I have to reorganize my work schedule so might as well stick in walking, exercising and taking care of myself right in there too.

I am not going to promise I will sign in every day but I will definitely do my best to do just that. I need to get back on track. I have started from the beggining again, baby steps to my better health agian.

Hope you all have been doing great this summer. We have had some sad weather for walking but I am sure you all managed nicely.

Thanks again for sticking with me, even when I wasn't here, you guys were in my mind and heart and that is what brought me back...thank you ALL!!!

    hey Di,,, I too am sitting at a 10lb gain. And after all the hard work I did with a personal trainer, not to mention the expense, I am determined to get back into it.

I was thinking maybe we could get together for a coffee and a walk rather than a big meal like last visit LOL.

keep in touch,, you know where to find me

take care my friend

MY Update

Friday, April 10, 2009

Well I have been with Sparks for 2 yrs now. Wow where does the time go?

What I have learnt is that there are so many people just like me struggling to get a hold of this little thing called weight problem. I have met some very nice people here that are willing to cheer you on when your doing well and cheer you up when your not.

I have lost 47lbs on my lowest weigh in and have gained back 10lbs of that on my highest weigh in.

I am proud to say I have gone through some emotional problems that last couple of years and haven't managed to put every bit back on. Right now I am getting back to it. I have joined curves, and enjoying it and getting a good work out. Imagine me on a workout program..go figure.

I want to thank my family who has been a great source of motivation. For noticing how I am changing and who has stood by me always.
I want to thank those friends of mine I have met here who are always here for you even when your not. For those who check up on your when your gone awol for a bit. For those who say just what you need to hear that day!!

I want to thank my email friend who hasn't given up on me even when I don't emal every day.

I want to thank my friends who have noticed the change in me and have commented..you don't know how good that feels.

I want to thank my inner self for not giving up, even when times seem useless.

I have learn t so much from this site and the people who are on it. Thanks you all!!

I couldn't of done it without either of you emoticon
