I have a new attitude, I feel like this is the year, I will lose my weight, that with God's Help, Spark's Help and the Genotype Diet, I will be successful! I plan on doing this food plan and way of eating for my whole life, and when I need to stop losing that I will maintain it, easily, and with no trouble.
I know in the future, when more of this weight comes off that I will be able to move more and do more, but now I strive to do a bit more each day. At my highest weight of 372 3/4, I was doing isometrics, from my chair, and some lifts. Then I moved to walking the length of my small apartment, then with my walker, a baby step, at a time and attached to oxygen. Then I moved the walking outside and got up as far as 50 feet in each direction. Then I went to a cane and walked the length of my apartment in each direction and eventually took it outside, and walked those long fifty steps in each direction, all with oxygen on. With the help of the Blood Type Diet, I was free from arthritis and able to move.
and I was able to get off of oxygen during the day. I was so happy! Two years later, I was able to get off of oxygen completely. At this time, I had moved into a larger apartment, which felt more like a home.
I have a long hall way and make that trip down it many times a day and can do so on my own No walker, No Cane. Outside is a bit of a hardship, but I will accomplish it too.
Today, I feel Blessed, Motivated and Full of Life and with God's Help will continue on this path to normal weight and good health, if it is His Will.
Onward and Downward!
Bless Each of You and I pray for your success, also.

Thanksgiving Day 2009- My family was all together, again. My children, my grandchildren. My second daughter and her children are back from PR to live and attend school, again. I missed them dearly, when they were gone.
My son survived a horrific car accident, with a scraped head. His car was demolished, but he is alive and fine. God kept him in his Hands, and kept him safe.
We had a wonderful meal, that was delicious. We had a great visit, lots of laughter. It was great.

I had a plan, I was ready, I was willing, I had a store picked out, I had to make it work for me.
I was at Walmart, I knew shopping there for food was limited, but that was where I was taken and I was going to find things I needed.
I found canned goods, I bought 15 cans of peaches in light syrup (no sugar added), I figured 2 servings per can, according to the plan I was following. Than I found pineapple chunks and bought 15 cans, figuring 3 servings per can. (I got 2 1/2, when I measured it out) Oh My, I found the beans I needed, butter beans and great northern beans, in cans also. Never had them, before, so I bought 4 butter beans and 2 great northern (figuring 20 servings-we'll see) I found V-8 juice (2 veg servings per serving, 2 servings per can), bought 12(24 veg servings) Sounds great to me so far, continued on and seen they had a refrigerated row of coolers, passed all the cold sweet stuff, and found Hillshire ultra thin turkey brest slices, bought 6 of them, mmmm, thinking, calculating 3 servings per container Wow 18 poultry servings ( and sodium was low on them). I'm allowed 2300g a day. Good choice! Go a few cooler doors down and spot bacon and thought No, need to pass that, but I look again and I see a package that looks different, kind of light colored, and opened that cooler and found, you guessed it,
turkey bacon, grabbed 1 package (never had it before) needed to try it, and it's turkey. Turning the corner to the main isle, on a very large rack, down low, I spot large cans of pumpkin, I thought, I could try that new recipe I just seen and bought 2 cans, also on the rack on the other side was Hershey Cocoa,(what female doesn't need chocolate, once in a while, but on my food plans I can have 1 tsp. a day. WOW! Then, a bit down I found Bakers unsweetened chocolate Bar, you know the big one, people usually use to bake with, but I knew a secret, one can add stevia and hot water to it for a chocolate beverage. I bought 2 of them to try it, too. I felt great, this will hold me until I can get to another store, to get the rest of what I need!
Of course, before that, I went clothes shopping for myself and my youngest grand daughter, who is having a birthday soon and will be seven years old. I picked out three or four tops, pair of leggings, new black sexy bra, and a new dress, for myself. Then I switched to the girl's dept and picked out a dress, that came with a necklace, added a pair of black leggings with silver threads running through them and an outfit portraying Disney Rocks, a long top with a sash belt and pants with them, and I walked a bit further and found a hat/gloves/scarf set and chose to grab it to, of course, had to keep my little girl warm. lol Still haven't run into my brother, who brought me, so continued on the the hair products, you guessed it had to buy my hair color! lol Than finished with cleaning supplies, than finally, went to checkout and after I got home found out I had $140.00 in groceries, from Walmart. All good choices, all of which I was happy, I chose.

I had cataract surgery on August 26th and again on Sept 2nd, both eyes are now finished, except for putting drops in them.
I was amazed at the excellence of the medical staff and the opathologist, that took care of me, and performed my surgery. Shocked the procedure took TEN minutes or less, for each eye. Came out of it with 20/20 far sighted. So happy, no glasses needed except for reading! (first time since, 1956 w/o needing glasses, all the time)
I need to wait til Sept. 24th for next eye exam to get sized up for the strength of the reading glasses. That is what is difficult, at this point, but I am coping with it the best, as I could. I am so excited to be able to read together through the right reading glasses.
I was confident from the start that all would go well, but my doctor opted for doing one eye at a time, due to me being a diabetic, which I agreed wholeheartly with him. Amazingly, I am smiling every day and feeling great!
