So very stuffed :(

Friday, March 13, 2009

Today me and my husband went out of town for a few hours. But before we went we had steak and eggs for breakfast, only because we thought we were going to have a long day. When we arrived (2hours later) we were invited to lunch, not wanting to be party poopers (my inlaws birthday) we ate again. This time it was enchiladas, beans and rice, I did my best to eat only a little and yet enough to look grateful. When we got home about 6pm then I had one tamale, one cookie, and half a cupcake. I had my 32oz water and had finished by the time we got home. It's almost 8pm and I will soon be heading off to bed with most of this stuff digested emoticon


Yes I've learned my lesson and for sure I will be going to Curves tomorrow

    Oh my - that's quite a day. It's hard when we feel obligated to eat for others - especially at celebratory functions. I never quite understood why I always celebrate with food? It's a very hard habit to break, especially when others expect me to partake and I don't want to hurt their feelings.

Well today is a new day with fresh choices! Good for you for recognizing what happened yesterday and for going to Curves today.

    Praise God that you stepped forward. God knows your hurt and the pain that you have endured. Know that your cries don't go un-noticed to God. Sometimes in our weakness He allows us to be strong. Psalms 100 says... "For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting and His truth endureth to all generations". God loves us and at times our hurt will bring comfort to others at the right time. You were at the right place at the appointed time.

Me?

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Today I went to a funeral for a distant relative. I knew her and when we were children we were close. Her family requested that me and my sisters sing at the services, four of us did as well as one of my neices. While standing at the podium my younger sister asked if any of us wanted to speak and without hesitation "I" stepped forward. Why? I don't know, but at that moment GOD gave me courage and I hope my words gave comfort. I believe GOD brought me through some tragic events because I would needed to help others someday.....But my grief is strong and today memories of my son's funeral services were first in my thoughts. "GOD I need your love to comfort this family and for me, please bring peace to our hurting hearts, Amen"

  i just finished reading your whole 17 pages of blogs.It seems like you have had so many tragedies in your life. I am so sorry for all your suffering and pain. I am also a diabetic and numerous other health problems . I am on insulin and have been since 92.I hear is is harder to loose weight when you are on insulin and they tell me it can be done. But I am not proof of that I am very overweight and also have been trying for years . I think I have lost maybe 20 lbs. over the last 3 years up and down and I am not very good at exercising it is also on and off.Sometimes I want to just quit but i won't. I can't. My sugars are out of control at time {mostly}I admire your courage and strength you have been through so much and I will keep you in my prayers. Prayer can be powerful!!Best of Luck. emoticon

My worry

Saturday, March 07, 2009

I started on insulin for diabetes about 3 weeks ago. It is bringing my blood sugars down but not where they should be. I know it will take a while to this all together but for now my fear/worry is the weight gain. Now I commit to daily exercise and drinking my water and by next week I will start following a healthier way of eating

    Good for you for your commitment, JoeAnne! My husband has to take insulin shots also. It was quite a change for him. But you're right..it takes a while and hopfully with your commitment to exercise and healthier ways of eating, it'll all be good!

    I have a family history of diabetes, and it is a constant fear. You are fighting the fight, and I know you can do it! Keep making good choices, and your body will respond. My thoughts are with you as you make adjustments and strive forward.

    I hope this brings you a Spark of hope!

In 2003, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. My sugar was averaging 400. After losing only 25 pounds and eating a bit more healthy, I now have a clean bill of health. I am no longer on meds for HBP or Diabetes.

That is the one beautiful thing about Type 2... You can beat it if you put your mind to it!

I got no spark

Friday, February 27, 2009

Ok a least I feel like I have no spark/motivation. I guess thats part of depression too. Don't worry I will find a way out, I just need alone time.

    Alone time helps but also your SP friends can help you as well. Drink lots of water that helps the flush the body, also read some motivational pages on SP. That helps me a great deal. I have saved a few on my SP page if you want to take a look and read a few.
