MOVIN ALONG SINGING A SONG

Saturday, January 16, 2010

YES I AM PRETTY DARN HAPPY NOW WOULD THINK 2 POUNDS WOULD MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY SAYING GOOD BYE TO IT?LOL
CAN'T SAY ENOUGH HOW HAPPY I AM TO SEE THAT SCALE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. AND STILL MAKING SMALL CHANGES ALONG THE WAY AND THEN READING THE SPARK BOOK ONLY TO FIND IN THE NEXT CHAPTER THAT'S WHAT THEY ASK US TO DO!LOL ESP I GUESS.
I WAS LOOKING AT ALL THE BAD I THOUGHT I WAS DOING INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT ALL THE GOOD I DO AND ALL THE GOOD I DO IS WAY MORE THAN THE BAD SO THAT MEANS ONLY ONE THING THERE ISN'T MUCH I HAVE TO CHANGE TO GET THE REST ALL FIXED AND HELP THAT SCALE KEEP GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. WHEN I GO FOOD SHOPPING I AM GETTING SOME NEW THINGS TO TRY AND HOPING TO MAKE MORE OF A DIFFERENCE IN THIS PLAN THAT I HAVE!
SO NICE TO SEE SO MANY HAPPY PEOPLE DOING SOMETHING TO HELP A FRIEND OUT AND IN THE PROCESS WE ARE ALL GETTING THE SCALE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION DN MORE PEOPLE ARE TALKING PLANS AND SHARING AND HELPING EACH OTHER IT IS SUCH A GOOD FEELING!NOW I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT FRIDAY SO I CAN SHOW MORE POUNDS DOWN!

IT'S HIS YEARLY FOR KIDNEYS AND ALL.THEN HE CALLED WHEN HE GOT HERE AND I HAD TO SHOW HIM WHERE TO GO. SO THAT IS DONE THEN I HAD TO CALL CAUSE HE WAS TAKING THE CAR IN AT THE NEW FORD PLACE FOR THEM TO CHECK IT OVER.SO I GOT THE LADY ON THE PHONE THAT IS HANDLING EVERYTHING SHE SEAM NICE ON THE PHONE AND THAT IS A PLUS.CAUSE IF YOU REMEMBER RIGHT FROM THE START I HAD TROUBLE THE LAST TIME THE GUY TOLD ME TO BRING MY CHECK BOOK! AND HE THOUGH ME WAS GETTING THE CAR DUMPED ON HIM! NICE HUH?
SO HE TOOK IT AND GOT THE CAR RENTAL THAT FORD PAID FOR GOT HOME AND FORD CALLS ME!THEY SAY THEY FELT THE SHAKING WHEN THE CAR REACHED 70MPH! I SAID IT DOES IT EVEN WHEN YOU GO OVER A LITTLE BOUNCE!AND ALSO ASKED TO MAKE SURE THEY CHECK THE ORIGINAL KNOCKING THAT IS WHAT NO ONE CAN FIND WHERE IT IS COMING FROM! SO NOW THEY WANT ROY TO GO BACK DOWN THERE AND GO FOR A TEST DRIVE WITH THEM!HMMM ISN'T THAT WHAT YOU WERE SUPPOSE TO DO BEFORE THEY LET YOU DRIVE OFF IN THE RENTAL CAR?
SO I CALL ROY BACK AND HE HAS TO GO BACK DOWN. I ALSO CALL THE PLACE TELL THEM HE IS AT AN APPOINTMENT AND HE WILL BE THERE AS SOON AS HE CAN AND I HAVEN'T HERD ANYTHING YET!
I REALLY HOPE THIS IS IT AND IT IS FIXED CAN'T TAKE MUCH MORE. I THINK THE ONLY THING THAT IS GETTING ME THRU IS THE GOODS NEWS THIS MORNING I GOT WHEN I GOT ON THE SCALE AND AM DOWN 2 POUNDS FOR THIS WEEK.
THAT HAS MADE MY DAY I TELL YOU CAUSE I HAVE BEEN AT A STAND STILL FOR WAY TO LONG NOW. I HAVE CHANGED SOME THINGS AROUND AND HOPING THAT THIS WORKS AND IT IS SO DOWN I GO!

    CHAR - I DO HOPE THEY GET YOUR CAR FIXED ONCE AND FOR ALL THIS TIME. THIS IS RIDICULOUS! YOU'D THINK A BIG COMPANY LIKE FORD COULD FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG WITH ONE OF THEIR OWN CARS!

I'M SO PROUD OF YOU FOR GETTING YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JUMP STARTED AGAIN! I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT. LIKE YOU SAID, JUST SHAKE SOME THINGS UP AND IT'S BOUND TO MOVE!

LOVE YA, MARLA

    actually i was having terrifc shaking in the front of my little escort and it's been going on for several years and no one would look at it and funny thing is it always passes the yearly inspection so it's not something with the engine and it had a tuneup that was almost an overhaul i took it in last week and a different ford mechanic looked at it and adjusted the idle that was the problem i've been fooling with forever as i have peripheral artery disease and i wasn't giving it enough gas but the idle wastoo low to ccompenstate for iut so the check engine light kept coming on it hasn'r been on for a wek now i am truly blessed for sure!!
love and hugs mary

    you know i had a little ford escort wagon in 1981 (the first year for them i believe) and it was surely a lemon fist of all they didn't process it properly and put no oik in the engine yes maam drove it right off the lot and then it wouldn't start until aaa stopped my visits and told me to get my car fixed becasue they were no longer gonna come and tow it and then ford had the audacity to tell me i didn't take proper care of it and do maintenance and mind you the care had less than 500 miles on it what kind of maintenance and there was no oil light showing so how was i to know?? and so one day it stpped again proable half a block from the dealer where i had just paid alnother 100 to have it fixed again and i had it towed to the police impound lot and called forsd and told them no more payments come and get it and told them where it was well it sat there for three months and one day it was gone and i asked the man about it and he said well you owe us this much for storage and i told him he could go get it from ford i did keep the insurance and they dunned me for months and i got a lawyer who asked them why a brand new car with less than 500 miles on it wouldn't run and don't give me the c**p about maintenance there is none on a car like that and ford left me alone after that but i was carless and walked everywhere in the middle of a northern maine winter because i couldn't afford a new car and ford ruined my credit over it
but i drive a little escort wagon now a 95 my aunt gave me and it runs ok but i would never buy another ford for sure but i never look gift horses in the mouth for sure lol

    FOOD AWARENESS
log that food a few days a week EVERYTHING AND HOW MUCH and get in the habit of doing that a few days whatever days you pick them and you will become more aware of those stumbling blocks and can plan for them because they will hit you in the eye after a few weeks of logging and it will help you plan for those times you catch yourself doing stuff you don't really want to i do that and i'm maintaining now for two plus years 378-105 yep 273 pounds gone the lady mary
