Today is December 25, 2011....we celebrate Jesus' birthday. We celebrate Christmas with family and friends. We were blessed with 2 new Grand Daughters this year....LillyAnn on August 27th and Jordan on December 7th. LillyAnn arrived in England a normal healthy baby girl. Praises to God. Jordan arrived in Charleston, SC with complications-the cord was around her neck very tight, she was a purplish blue color in her neck and facial areas. The doctor had to cut the cord right next to the babies neck, attempting to get her to breath. Jordan had to get oxygen and cpr performed which seemed like 5 minutes, but really was about 2 minutes to hear her Cry out... This was a Miracle #1...then the Doctors noticed a "dimple" at her lower spine area....they were concerned she had an opening on her spine or spina biffida. she had to go to get tests ran on her spine. Hours later we finally hear she is fine. Her spine is closed and she is okay...Miracle #2....Her Mom, Me, and her other Grandmother had requested prayer chains to be said for Jordan as soon as she arrived -only knowing the cord issue when we were requesting prayers.....We know and praise GOD for his major role in this baby's life. about 6 hours after birth, Jordan came to the room- pretty pink cheeks looking so fine and healthy. She has the prettiest blue eyes.....she's our Christmas Miracle Baby. When Jordan was one week and half old she played Baby Jesus in her grandmother's church play. Very emotional, and so thankful this baby girl is with us today. LillyAnn you are far away, but thanks to Skype you are close to us too. We give God the praise and glory for these two special little girls and all the happiness they will bring into our lives over the years....and for myself and my grand daughters I am working to get this weight off and eat healthy and exercise to be around to watch you two grow into young ladies. G-ma Loves you with all her heart. The best christmas presents ever. Money may make life a little easier, but a true present is in your heart...Jesus lives in my heart and my life. I know my Saviour lives. I hope all who read this blog have a very Merry Christmas.....Happy Birthday Jesus

I'm writing this on the evening of December 5th. We are expecting the arrival of a new baby girl (grand-daughter) tomorrow. This time of year, makes her arrival more special. She will be born just before the holiday season...when we celebrate Jesus' birthday. We are all anxious for her arrival. Because of you-- Jordann, Hannah, Jayden, and LillyAnn-your Grandma needs to get healthy, change her eating habits, get more exercise- - to be able to keep up with my Grand daughters...to watch you grow, ride bikes together, play games, swing in swings....enjoy the outdoors with my girls. To live a longer life, by being healthy. I'm making these changes for myself and to be around to see my granddaughters grow up. Time seems to be passing us on by....don't wait until tomorrow or the next day to start making changes...Do it today.

Today was a nice day, off from work for the Holiday. Went out to dinner with Vince, we went to Applebee's (thanks Applebee's for honoring Veterans on this day) although it was tempting to order something besides a salad...woohoo I did good, I orderd the grilled chicken salad. I only had some water and an apple earlier today. I was "holding on to" my calories for this meal. We went about 4 pm ahead of the supper crowd. So I am basically writting this Blog to Congratulate and woo hoo myself for doing good and not falling off the path I'm on to loose this weight, one day, one meal, one step at a time. I haven't weighted yet, but I can feel and see a difference in my clothing and appearance. This month so far, has been good........not allowing food to be a comfort, when my emotions are up and down!!!! getting emotional eating in control. Wishing everyone a great Spark Weekend.

a new month has arrived, November...eat and stuff yourself on Thanksgiving Day. I am determined to make this new month a good one and continue on with my healthy eating. I have been staying with in my calorie ranges....eating veggies....trying to get in as much water as possible....next is to up my exercise times. I am proud of myself and realize being an emotional eater, this major change in my life is going to take time and more time. I didn't get fat overnight and I won't get skinny overnight either. I'm not going to set a Date to reach my ideal weight. I'm going to take this journey, one day at a time...one pound at a time....one meal at a time. Patience and more patience to succeed.
