Someone questioned IF I DON'T LOSE A HUNDRED POUNDS, I ANSWERED WITH THIS: (AND then decided this will be my BLOG, for today)

You have a chance to look forward to:
Breathing well, without being hooked up to oxygen!
Breathing and sleeping well, because you not hooked up to oxygen because of sleep apnea, at night.
Walking to the bathroom, without a walker or cane.
Sleeping in a regular bed, not a hospital bed, that was brought into your home.
You will be able to walk around your apt/home pushing a vacuum sweeper in front of you.
You will be able to walk outside and plant flower/herbs/vegetables in pots waist high
You will be able to arrange ceramic knick knacks on stands around your patio, yourself.
You will be able to take your garbage outside to the dumpster before it begins to smell.
You will be able to do dishes, and wipe the counters and stove, yourself.
You will be able to stand by a stove, and cook a meal on the stove top.
You will be able to carry your own groceries into your home.
You will be able to put them all away, and know where they are, because you did it.
You will be able to get into smaller size clothes!
You will be able to launder your own clothes and put them away.
You will be able to walk with the one you love, and cherish instead of being in a wheelchair.
You will be able to look in the mirror and smile, at yourself, and think good thoughts.
You will have a feeling of worth, because deep inside you made this happen, YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN, I know because I MADE THIS HAPPEN.

May 10, 2011 Down since End of Winter 1 5% Challenge

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

This has been a great day!

Ate well, moved good, felt good and communicated with my two oldest grandchildren, for quite awhile. They needed grandma's ear for awhile!
It was fun and informative. Sometimes, life leads one to question things.
Other times, it seems to fall into place. Today, was one of those days, things just seem to fall and place, and get completed.

Were getting close to landing the plane, for challenge one, hopefully by tomorrow evening, that would be great! The team seems very inspired, excited, and ready for everything available, to benefit them.

Three Cheers for our Beautiful Butterflies
Onward & Downward

May 9th, 2011 It's Monday After!

Monday, May 09, 2011

The time has come, now that the holiday is over, to get serious about the challenge!

We filled our tummies, we filled our hearts, let's burn those calories and land this plane. Soar the skies Beautiful Butterflies!

Blog each day, make many comments, check your meal before starting to eat it and ask yourself? Did I make the right choices? Do I want to make any changes, I still can?

We each need to make this decision, for the rest of our lives. Are we going to change our eating habits, for the best? Are we going to try and live a long productive life?

Were here, so I think we are.

    Would like to add my congratulations on the 100 lb loss. It does feel amazing doesn't it! Getting into smaller sizes is so rewarding and such an ego booster. Way to go!
Also in the 100 lb club.

May 8th, 2011 a tad late! Today, Mother's Day!

Monday, May 09, 2011

This was a special day, my family was all together. My son cooked the dinner. My daughters, washed the dishes. We all enjoyed time together, took pictures, oh so fast! Anxious to see the results. My daughters live 50 miles apart and did not plan this, but they both arrived in orange, as did one daughter's daughter& the other one, had a top with very thin stripes of orange with larger strips of earth tones. Really looked sharp together. I was in a shade of magenta . lol

Grand kids, took a walk with my son through the woods, and tried crossing a log which was over a ditch. I guess it was hilarious.

My plan is to continue eating healthy and exercise and keep busy!
