OMG....REALLY?

Saturday, October 18, 2014

So, I noticed that I haven't posted anything since July. I yelled out SLACKER to myself! LOL! But moving forward.....I need to commit. A lot of things have been going on in my life and making some life decisions. My little girl is turning 5 in November and I am just a MESS over that! It's really hard to watch her grow.....I remember her birth like it was yesterday. Children change you and it did me for the better. I am a really scared mother of 45 since she is an only child and I would love to have another one and so would hubby (48). However, I want a life too....of being able to possibly take acting classes, dance classes and the such. So many decisions. What is right in front of me is the goal of losing 117 pounds. My friend and I were talking about all the unfulfilled dreams and excuses this weigh has afforded us. Not good. So....we go forward. Looking forward to today and we are surprising our daughter with tickets to Disney on Ice at 730pm tonight. Cannot wait to see the joy on her face. I hope I fit in the seats...(totally the mind of a OA sparkteam member)! LOL

I wish you and your husband the best as you decide what works for your family.
I had my daughter at a younger age, I was 26, and am 54 now. She is our only child
and for the three of us, it has worked out well. She actually just married a young man who has a HUGE family and three brothers and a sister...his Dad has TEN siblings and Mom has four.....so my daughter still will have a life full of family!
Enjoy Disney on Ice.... what fun!!

Good Evening....

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Thought it would be nice to do a little blog in the evening time to change my routine. Lot of changes taking place involving my pet sitting jobs. Working smarter not harder. Picked up some new clients and some of my long time clients have changed residencies. We parted on wonderful terms with pictures, gifts and tears! Its all good. Looking forward to the next couple of weeks as I am making time for myself and focusing on the things I truly want to do. I am hopeful.

A new way.....

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Having a good morning and going to hold onto that for the day. Its nice when the weather outside attributes to that! 70 degree weather here in Michigan and we are loving it for the short months that we have it. Thinking about all the wonderful people on my Sparkteams! I have become a team leader for THE SECRET sparkteam along with the OA sparkteam. Its always a joy to fill my life with people that inspire me and these teams do that! I would like to take the opportunity to praise my Higher Power for putting things in my path that I have prayed for long ago....only HE can do this. I do have a lot of work ahead of me on this road that I am traveling.....I want to take everyone with me along the way.....

Changes.....

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Today there were changes to all the Sparkteams. Going to take a little time to get used to but I am optimistic. I really have to say that I am really proud of all the members of the OA Sparkteam!!! I wanted to tell you that your stories inspire me, keep me sane, make me smile and cry at the same time. They also let me know that I am not alone with this disease. I think that my HP inspires me to keep at this team as if it were like family.....IT IS FAMILY!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful day and I am looking forward to May.....peace and love!

Feeling good.....

Monday, April 21, 2014

I was so proud of myself yesterday for noticing my hunger signals. Eating just enough to feel satisfied and not over doing it to feel stuffed. Can you believe I only had one piece of chocolate on EASTER of all days!!! That is a really weakness for me but I was proud. I look at its as really putting my life first. Don't get me wrong...I am still heavy but moving forward to a path of being healthy and sexy....FOR ME. I sometimes look at the overweight and unhealthy people out there and it shows me how much they are hurting, just like I do. I just want to hug them all and tell them that it will be fine. God is on our side in this.....just turn to HIM.
