Reading these blogs, on a regular basis is very inspiring.
I get many ideas, from other people
Realizing, I don't need clutter, if I unclutter my life, it will be easier to handle
I will make an effort to do this.
Staying focused is so important, in achieving the end result, but realizing at the same time, one needs to take it a meal at a time, an exercise session at a time.
Seeing the reflection come back at you from a store window, a mirror, realizing that is you, and you are looking better. Seeing is believing. Sometimes as one becomes smaller, they do not recognize it, because it is oneself. We have to grab onto to the weight lost, claim it, to keep it. Notice the change in little things, like the size of your calfs, thighs, wrist, ring size, neck size, width of face, length of face, and especially notice you are smiling more. Keep that smile, keep a positive attitude, and live life each day to it's fullest, doing all you want to do, you live only ones.

I talked to my doctor, about taking Byetta, for diabetic control, knowing that, one side effect, could be weight lost. He agreed and I started it last Friday, but something happened to my glucose numbers, they went up and stayed up, and went over 350, one time. That made me call the doctor's office, with this info.
He called me the next morning, told me Byetta takes two-three weeks to kick in sometimes, so I was to take a half a dose of my 70/30 Novolog (which is insulin and lantus ,mixed), twice a day, and to call him on Monday, and he would either adjust the novolog or, stop it again, depending on my numbers.
I'm hardly ever hungry, and need to look at the clock and know, it is time to eat, this is important, for a diabetic, to eat at a scheduled time. I never had that problem, before. I find it kind of amusing, after all these years being a diabetic, I think this may be the right medicine, for me. We will see. I was just tested, last week and my HA1C, was 7.5 down from 8.5, would like to get it to five.
I know getting all this under control, will help, to lead a more stimulating life!

I have been trying to locate, a first cousin, of mine, for many years. Well, yesterday I found her! Yahoo! Also her four children, four more cousins, and there children, 7 more cousins.
So a dozen cousins, from one first cousin! Also, rec'd. the phone number, of another first cousin, which will lead, to many more found cousins.
We had 49 first cousins, when my grandma passed away, in 1966, and 109 second cousins, we use to hold family reunions, but after she passed, it only lasted a few more years.
Then in 1994, with the passing, of my dad, the last of 15 children, was laid to rest.
There was many marriages, many many moves, phone numbers changed, immediate family problems, and poor health, so contact ceased to exist.
So today, I share the hope, of meeting these cousins, again, and catching up, and sharing stories with younger family members. It is easier when, they get to meet and know each, other, I believe.
I am happy!
Hugs and Success to all, in more ways then one, in whatever you endeaver to accomplish in your lives!

Success and complements sometimes throws me, for a loop. So, I try to quietly reach new goals, so I can grasp it, long enough to claim it as mine, so I can keep it, until, I hit a lower number, I'm trying something new for me, I'm trying to claim each weight as I reach it, before I hear about the rewards of it,because I know they affect me the wrong way.
I hereby claim my lost this week, as mine alone, let it be mine, please, & thank you
