    CHAR - I TOO AM GLAD WE ARE GOING TO WORK ON THIS HEALTHY THING TOGETHER AS A TEAM AND WE HAVE SOMEWHERE TO GO TO TALK ABOUT IT NOW! I'M SO LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING HEALTHY WITH YOU AND THE OTHERS ON OUR WONDERFUL TEAM!

I READ ABOUT YOUR EPISODE OF JANICE'S PLANE BEING LATE & THE POWDERY SUBSTANCE THAT BROKE IN HER SUITCASE! SHE'S LUCKY THEY DIDN'T HOLD HER UNTIL THEY FOUND OUT WHAT IT WAS FOR SURE.! I GUESS SHE'S STUBBORN AND WON'T LISTEN, HUH? OH WELL, ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL., SHE'S HOME NOW.

NOW DON'T WORK TOO HARD TODAY! YOU SHOULD BE GETTING TIME OFF FOR NEW YEAR'S, RIGHT? ENJOY!

I ALMOST GAVE UP

Monday, December 28, 2009

YES I CAN'T BELIEVE I FINALLY SAID THE WORDS! I WAS FEELING ALL KINDS OF THINGS IN THIS HEAD OF MINE LIKE A COMPLETE FAILURE!THAT NO ONE CARED!LIKE I TOTALLY LET MY SELF DOWN. I SHOULD BE AT MY GOAL WEIGHT IT IS A LITTLE OVER TWO YEARS NOW! AND I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE 50 POUNDS THINNER.I STARTED GREAT I HAD MY MIND SET AND ALONG THE WAY THAT TOTALLY LEFT ME.
I HAVE NEVER MISSED A DAY OF EXERCISING,DRINKING ALL MY WATER,EATING ALL MY FRUITS AND VEGGIES. AND I HAVE SAID THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.IT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN EATING EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING AND I HAVE STILL PUT IT ALL INTO MY TRACKER SO YOU SEE IT IS THE EATING THAT IS WHAT IS WRONG I DON'T HAVE MY MIND SET LIKE I DID WHEN I FIRST STARTED AND NEED DESPERATELY TO GET IT BACK. FELT LIKE I WASN'T GETTING THE HELP I NEEDED AT ALL. AND FELT LIKE I WASN'T BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE!
WELL I AM SO HAPPY TO SAY MY SPARK TEAM HAS A CHALLENGE GOING FOR OUR MEMBER
MARLA SHE IS IN KIDNEY FAILURE AND HAS TO LOSE MORE WEIGHT SO WE ARE ALL DOING THIS TOGETHER! WE ARE PUTTING ALL OUR THOUGHTS TOGETHER AND WE WILL ALL BE HELPING HER AND OUR SELVES GET TO OUT GOALS.I NEED THIS KICK TO GET ME JUMP STARTED AND AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
I HAVE THE BEST TEAM EVER FOR DOING THIS GIVING ME MY LIFE AND CONTROL OF IT ALL BACK.I LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM SO MUCH!
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR READING MY BLOG AND HUGS TO ALL.

    CHAR, I UNDERSTAND EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL. I AM STARTING TO SPROUT LIKE A GOOD LITTLE VEGETABLE FROM EATING SO MANY. FRUITS FOR ME RIGHT NOW ARE A DIFFERENT MATTER. JUST EATING A FEW BITES SENDS MY SUGAR OUT OF CONTROL...SO I HAVE TO AVOID THEM WHILE THEY ARE TRYING TO GET MY BS REGULATED. HOPEFULLY THEM I CAN HAVE FRUIT AGAIN. IN THE MEANTIME, VEGGIES ARE MY BEST FRIEND. HOWEVER I AM ON THE LIMITED PROTEIN TOO SO MY CALORIES ARE VERY LOW AND MY BODY IS IN CONSTANT STARVATION MODE. HOWEVER IT WILL ALL COME TOGETHER AGAIN AND THE WEIGHT WILL START DROPPING OFF. IN THE MEANTIME, I HAVE TO FIGHT THE WEIGHT GAIN CAUSED BY THE NEW INSULINS AND KIDNEYS NOT WORKING RIGHT CAUSING FLUID GAIN. (SIGH)
I AM GOING TO SWITCH MY EXERCISES AROUND AND SEE IF THAT MIGHT HELP. THE DOCTORS ARE ALSO WORKING TO HELP ME. SOMETIMES WE JUST HAVE TO LISTEN TO OUR BODIES...NEVER GIVING UP. BESIDES IF YOU GIVE UP, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU DO? YOU WOULD HAVE WAY TO MUCH FREE TIME ON YOUR HANDS. LOL AND YOU WOULD MISS ALL OF US. WE CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN. WE ARE ON A ROLL TO GET MARLA A NEW KIDNEY. WE CAN DO THIS. YOU CAN DO THIS!! NO MATTER WHAT OUR PROBLEMS ARE...THEY COULD BE WORSE!!!
HANG IN THERE, WE WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS WITH A SMILE ON OUR FACES...WE HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN GET HEALTHY!!!
BLESSINGS AND HUGS, MY DEAR FRIEND,
HELEN
