Hey guys!

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Well this is beginning to sound like a broken record. I am going to try again but maybe approach this in a different way. Now I feel it has taken me 49 years to learn my bad eating habits. I can not expect to drop all of them all at once. So I think maybee each week or maybe two, I will do or change one of my bad eating habits. It is like getting on skates, you can not just take off and speed skate. You have to practice on the carpet first. Then out on the floor. After awhile you may be able to let loose of the wall and eventually attempt to skate backwards. Of course you will fall down alot and there will be alot of tears. But who knows.....................................

    Good Luck!
I find the only way for me to fix my eating problems is cold turkey. I know nothing about moderation so I have to abstain completely!! emoticon

Getting Back on Track

Sunday, July 05, 2009

It has been a few weeks since my last login. I kinda got off track for a number of reasons, but I am back now. My son in law is doing better now, his leg is healing nicely since surgery. I have not moved in with them, my landlady offered to lower my rent to 100 dollers a month. I was thankful and took her up on the offer. I found out I had broke my heel from trying to shift my weight off the heel spur. My foot Dr. called it a stress fracture. Of course it was from being so overweight. I wasn't happy with what she told me but it was the truth. I was then told I would be off work for 6 weeks and could not be on the foot. I hav to use a walker when up and only to bathroom. Thank goodness my brother lives with and can help. I am now so ready to got back to work and on the right track.

    It's good to hear from you again. It must be hard to be laid up for six weeks - maybe it will be good planning time for all the things you want to do when you are able. Also maybe a lot of computer time now that you're back.

I've been off my plan for a couple of days and expect I'll probably be up a pound (or three) this week. We had a party for our 25th anniversary and I just went with the flow and had fun. Most of the food we had left over from the party consists of the raw vegetables and dip (carrots, celery, tomatoes, etc.) At least I can snack on the veggies without any trouble.

Sorry to hear about your foot - take good care of it now so it will heal as quickly as possible. And hooray for having your brother to help. That makes it sooo much easier to follow the doctor's orders.

Where is the sun?

Sunday, May 03, 2009

I and my family are in the middle of moving an all I see is rain. I love to listen to it but not work in it. My move into my daughters house is coming along and the grandkids are so ecstatic. My brother is moving back in with my mom and that is not a happy choice for him. But he loves mom so it will be fine. The flowers at my daughters home are really blooming now. Everything is working out slowly. Patients is what I have to have. It will work out. emoticon


New Home

Friday, May 01, 2009

I finally got a chance to come back to my computer. I have been at work for a week and I didn't even get a chance to look at my mail. After getting paid on thursday, I so realized that I was going to have to move. My paycheck was short from being on vacation and it just isn't enough. Luckily my family is great and my daughter is already moving me in with her and her family. I want to them to understand that this is only temp. The grandkids are thrilled. It will help me to take care of some bills. Their place is out in the country in what is called a Homestead House. It is beautiful and so peaceful. Maybe this is what I need for the time being. emoticon

    It's great that you have this opportunity. Enjoy the time with your grandchildren - they do grow up so fast. I still think of the grandson as a kid, and he's 22, living on his own with a full time job. (The grandchildren are actually my husband's. I'm an "immaculate grandmother" - no kids, but get to enjoy three grandchildren.)

    I am so glad your daughter took you in. Kids can be great sometimes. I am sure you will have a lot of fun with your grandkids. Best of luck with the move!

Last night I had a bad bought with heartburn. It got so bad that I was throwing up acid. I take prilocec and last night I took 2 doses of gaviscon. This morning I woke up with the runs. I am not alarmed though. I know what caused the flare up. I ate 2 hotdogs for supper, but I ate them and then laid down.......a habit I have taken up since on vacation. I should know better because I have been diagnosed with gerd. I told my little brother, "I bet I don't do that again".

    Hello....There I found you on being born in 1959. I will be 50 on May 28th.

I have been on Nexium for 6 years I'm trying to taper off it completely....I feel for you having GERD in some was makes you eat more because you want to keep the food down!

And Garlic which is healthy kills me and garlic and onions are in everything...

Different people have different triggers....I feel your pain! emoticon
