You can be pitiful or you can be powerful, but you can't be both.--Joyce Meyer

Monday, November 21, 2011

6 weeks is great news--I hadn't paid attention --thought all was lost---ya know I want to meet the new year with a smile on my face----shoulders back --smiling--feeling good.

    Yes, choose powerful!! Embrace what GOD says about you: You are loved, you are an overcomer, you are the head and not the tail... all those wonderful things our Abba Father says and things about you and each one of us. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Walking alone is hard

Monday, November 21, 2011

I miss him. The holidays are here---I think of how he used to love to take the turkey out of the oven--and On Thanksgiving be the first one to taste it--smiling and licking his fingers with great joy. On Christmas we would be worse than children playing (testing) all the toys in the store before purchasing our favorites-- hoping that they would bring smiles to the little ones faces.

I am thankful for the good memories---now I move forward hoping to honor his memory by not letting sadness take over the season that he loved so deeply.
I bought the first present today---I missed looking into his blue eyes seeing his smile-- he would share my joy.

    Wonderful memories never fade and can be 'summoned' anytime. Speaking from experience, it does get easier with time and with the LORD!! Haver a blessed Thanksgiving with children and grandchildren while you make new memories.

    What nice memories you have. You'll make new memories and still find joy in giving and he'll look down and smile at you. Have a happy Thanksgiving. Have fun buying those gifts. All the best to you.

    Beautiful memories. Push the sadness back and draw from that world of happiness to create new memories as you share the seasons with your little ones. Making new memories with those grandkids and letting them be the 'first' to take the taste. They will remember it forever.


. what did you buy for that first present of the season?

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.

Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.
-~~~~~~ Kahlil Gibran

Exercising is NOT my problem....

Monday, November 14, 2011

I have found that exercising is NOT my problem
Eating everything in sight is what I do when I feel sad and lonely.
I hate to admit it---Then I beat myself up --and you guessed it I eat more
I know that there is not enough food in the world to solve a problem
Yet I continue this behavior every six months or so
Like a drug I need to replace this with something more rewarding----now I am beginning to understand why some people become shopaholics. But then they are hit with larger bills than they can afford. DON'T WANT TO GO THERE
I'm thinking that getting manic about my filing of papers at home so that I know where everything is may be a goal for a while
I will be looking out for some other way to fill my emotional needs ---Temp jobs come to mind--I wonder what the market is like for temps? emoticon emoticon

    Oh, I can relate to this. I turned into a shop-a-holic for a short period of time once I gave up bingeing on sugary food. It has taken me years to get my food addiction under control. One thing I have learned.... just when you think you have one addiction conquered, another one pops up in an unexpected place. It kind of reminds me of that game, "Whack-a-mole!"

    This is a problem that so many of us deal with, what I did initally was change the things that I ate - I replaced the cookies for bananas and grapefruits, and the pizza for a grilled chicken salad. Eventually, I became strong enough to tackle the issues of why I went to food for comfort, and in time I was able to replace that need to seek food as a source with God and a relationship with Him.

Now I am at the stage where I fluctuate between eating helathy replacements and doing something spiritual (reading the Bible, writing). I still have challenging moments, but, I am seeing some improvements in this area.

I know what you mean. I'm an emotional eater too.

I had a date with my papers last month. I did a pretty good job getting them straightened out, I just hope I can keep them that way. It's so easy to fall back into stuffing papers in the nearest drawer.

Hang in there.

    Sorry you're having such a hard time with this.

I'm still working on this myself - at least try and substitute the high calorie snacks with low calorie ones - I find I snack less on the wrong foods when my fruit basket is visible and full of lovely fruit.

Also try the Sparkpeople "Mind Over Body" program

    Sure know what you mean. I will do really good 4 days and then "reward" myself by eating everything that is site. Dumb, dumb, dumb me. Yes we can do better and we will succeed.

    Working on your papers and filing, is a formidable task, but it can be done and it is not too difficult. First you get some papers, and then you get a file... HAHAHAHAHAA sounds simple doesn't it. As for eating everything in sight, let me know what you find to replace all of that elbow /wrist/ finger exercise.. I can use help in that department too.

Keep happy emoticon
