I did it!

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

I actually made it to the fitness center last week Thursday, and Friday and Saturday too.......I skip on Sunday and Monday as those were my early days for work.
Today I went for about 30 mintues and did half cardio and weights. Tomorrow is also my day off from work, so I plan to be there for 45 minutes.
I had my yearly womens exam, today and also got my depo prevera, flu and tetnaus shot too. Anyway now my arms are sore. Well thats it for updates :)

Love and Blessings to all SPARK friends

I just can't get myself going. I know I need to get to Curves or the new Fitness Center that just opened up yesterday and is just down the street from me.
I will tomorrow.....I have no excuses for not going tomorrow.

Updates for me

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

I've been doing really great, in my weight loss and diabetes...Well not because I tryed anything different, it was because of the new medication I am taking for the diabetes. It's called Byetta, and it is a miracle drug for me.
Although I haven't had an A1c done yet, my daily fasting reading have been way down. The meds are also the reason for my weight loss and that is a good side effect for me.
I did get to go back to Curves for one week but not mor then that. My work schedule is so erratic that I am never sure when my days off are going to be. Also I have been so tired when I get home that all I want to do is sleep. Anyway the next few days of work will be short hours so I am glad for that.
My emotional state has been kind of crazy as I have started zoloft and it has helped but with the tragedy of my friend Laura, I am just confused, sad, upset and I don't know what else. I am trying trust in GOD and believe that he has purpose for all this but it is hard. So please keep me in pray, who ever reads this. I need GOD to show me what to do now.
Love and blessings to you.

    DH and I saw a Dr on Larry King one night talk about finding an animal that can go long periods without eating...the Gila Monster is the animal. He patented the drug Byetta using the Gila saliva. My husband has been using it the minute it came out...for type II, however the Dr said he is no longer considered Type II since his lab values are so good. I took it over a year ago although I was not diabetic for the weight loss. It works well but I couldn't hang with shooting myself up. It was a pain in the ass for me! He has no problem with it though. Our Dr is very progressive, had access to all the info a few years ago...way before it came out. He was thinking of opening a wt. loss clinic (currently cardiology & diabetic specialist) in L.A. Instead he developed his own formula for cholesterol-related problems and is selling it in China and S. America!
Good luck with the Byetta.
Sorry to hear of your struggles with sad news of a friend. Hang in there and know everything has a purpose and we don't always know what that is...look for the gift in yourself, nurturing yourself. Take care. Donna

    My doctor told me that most people lose as average of 50lbs with that new drug.. he also told me the FDA is looking at releasing it for weight loss! Are you taking a shot or pill? (byetta)
You are doing great, have faith in yourself and God.. I will keep you in my prayers..

    Im so glad that your dr. has found better meds for you. Im sorry to hear about your friend. In spite of all that you are suffering and feeling, God wants you to turn to Him with ALL of your struggles, complaints, and questions. If you have any doubt about that, read through the Pslams of David where he did just that and God did NOT ZAP him! You may not receive answers, you may not feel complete relief. As difficult as it has been, we KNOW that somehow all of it in His Plan for us.

1 month to change :(

Wednesday, June 06, 2007

I went for my diabetes check up and my doctor told me that I have to get my blood sugars down or I will have to go on insulin. There is no more chances, this is it.
I know I've said this before and for awhile I was doing good, in fact my A1c was down to 7.8 but then it went up to 9.3 and then down to 8.3 but in the past two months it shot up to 10.1 which is very bad.
The doctor thinks it might be because I've been slacking in my medication which is true. I always forget to take my morning meds so what we agreed is for me to take my meds at night and hopefully this will help. For me I know it will work, also I've decided to really be true/strict with my food choices because I know also is a big factor.
So for this past few days I have attended Curves (3 days) and walked one day but I will get another walk in this evening. I also am going to continue going to Curves early as that is my best time to move.
As for other things, I will doing orientation classes on the 26-28 for my new job so I am excited about that. So for now I'll just work on me a little bit.
That's it for updates, ya'll have a blessed week spark friends :)

    Im sure Riley is proud of his Mom! You can do this, girl! Determination is the key and youve got it! Look at all youve already handled so far in this lifetime of yours. No quick fixes will do; its a l-o-n-g walk that we are taking. Can you hear your cheering section off in the distance?!

Wow! In one day GOD answered my prayers.
I went for an interview for a different job, and everything I wanted and prayer about was given. I have the work shift I need the pay rate is exactly what I wanted, and the words I wanted to hear were said. It was a miracle, and I praise GOD for answering me. THANK YOU THANK YOU Heavenly Father :)
