  I'm reading the Bible in a year as well! You should come join us over here:

I created the page so that I would be held accountable to make sure I accomplish this goal; plus we are having some great discussions about what we've read. You should come join us. It's been a lot of fun so far.

What will happen?

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

I had stopped taking one of my medications for diabetes (Actos) with the approval of my doctor. This only when I ran of the current refill (october) and I think this why I have lost weight. I also think that is why I gained and had a lot of plateaus, but anyway my blood sugars have been running high so I started taking them again (to finish the bottle I had). Just one day after my bs were way down, which is a good thing but boy did it make me hungry, not during the day but at around 2AM. I didn't eat anything and was ok when I got up, so now I am not sure what to do.
Next month is my labs/diabetes checkup, oh what to do?

    I have been off my meds for diabetes for awhile, and my fbs levels are fine. This is NOT something you should try to manipulate on your own. Call the Dr. office and tell the nurse what is going on. Perhaps the Dr. can either see you sooner or recommend something to get you through until you can see him/her.

I finally did it, I am now 10 lbs lighter. It was a challenge but it was well worth it and it gives me inspiration to do more. Yes I am ready for change, which includes coloring my hair getting my eyebrows & upper lip waxed, register for school, and continuing the 15+ minutes of daily exercise.

Since quitting work I have kinda let those beauty treatments go, but now that I going to go to school I want to look/feel pretty. Ok got to get some beauty rest, Goodnight :)

I must confess, I didn't complete all of my goals last week. I did get 3 miles done and ate my fruit (but didn't log it). So somehow I lost 2 pounds so SOMETHING is working. Also my daily bs are going down.

My on going delimema - I told my family that I will finish school, but I'm not ready. I was working on my Bachelors degree in Education, but since my son RILEY journeyed to heaven I just have no motivation to finish. I mean I love working with children, it's just that I can't seem to let go of this thought "It's not fair that my child didn't get to grow up". For now I am content to be the caretaker of my grandson while his mom works.
But, school starts next month and I feel like I am running out of time. I suppose I can change my choice of career but it's the feeling of having to start over that worries me.
Please help, pray that GOD will show me what path to take. Thanks Sparkfamily emoticon

    I hope you finish your BA in Education. Your school counselor will tell you that many very good jobs requiring education degrees have nothing to do with teaching children. Our friend's beautiful, intelligent daughter died of cancer when she was 12. It was understandable that her parents were so grief-stricken they did very little but think of her for a few years. Very slowly it became easier to think of her without crying and to know she would want them to continue their productive lives. They have restarted their lives. I hope you don't grieve so long that you lose your opportunity for the education I'm sure your son would want you to have.

    You've got it sweetie! Praying is something I can do well. So much is going on at this time of year that it is hard to even think about starting anything new. You can do this. Is there anyone else that can watch the baby?

    My heart goes out to you. I lost my DD and there are times when I get at a crossroad in my life. I know what I need/want to do but my heart isn't ready. You don't have to change your choice of career. Give yourself time and you'll know when its time to continue. Prayers to you and God bless you. emoticonKaren

    Oh, Joe Anne! What a struggle!!

I think a lack of motivation is completely understandable -- and so would a career change!

At the same time, if you really love working with children, perhaps there's a way that Riley's memory can live through your work?

Hang in there, God will guide!

    Hello Jo Anne, it sounds like a good time to focus on taking care of yourself, emotionally and physically. I am so sorry for your loss, trust in yourself and God will lead the way. As I social worker, I can say that it is important to take care of youself in the helping professions, you can't give anything away if you are empty.

Stay in touch. emoticon

    HI Joe Anne, I hope you will be able to finish.....seems like you picked the profession for a reason....I am sorry for your loss.....I pray that you see the signs of what you need to do...

    Joe Anne,
It would not be a shame to pick a different profession. If you feel the need to change, then by all means do it. Teaching is not for everyone, for many different reasons. And if you feel like it would be painful for you, then you should choose something else that you would like to do.
Pray for guidance. And pray for willingness to see the signs I think He is already showing you.
