Every onuce counts :)

Wednesday, January 10, 2007

I went to my TOPS group yesterday and had a 3/4 pound loss :) WooHoo! I am going the right way.

Ok not assessments, I know I could have done better in the exercising because I only did 3 days of walking, also those carbs just call me everywhere I go.
What to do? I started Curves on Monday, and will go again today and then Friday. I will also continue with my walking, although I missed yesterday I did go today.
The food stuff? Well I am still working on that and am trying very hard to stay away from white bread and sweet stuff. Ok, but I am not being to strict with myself cause I know that don't work either.
I am ready, here I go...................:)


What GOD has given

Saturday, January 06, 2007

I am so very thankful for everything GOD has given me. From the smallest to the largest of things. From the sorrow to the joy also, for my family and friends.
I am comforted, and have more understanding for my grief. I also understand more about the gift he has given me and I hope to use this to help others.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Heavenly Father for all of this. Please tell my son RILEY that I love him and give a big hug from all of us. Amen


Measurements & Curves

Thursday, January 04, 2007

Well here are my measurements for the beginning of 2007
Weight 316.25
Bust 59 1/2
Waist 56
Abs 58 1/2
Hips 62
Thighs 32
Arms 17 1/2

BMI 56.2

Well I did it, I joined Curves, or at least signed up for the 6 weeks weight management program. I will do my first workout on Monday after an orientation meeting with other newbies. My daughter is thinking about going too, so hopefully we can work on this together.
Other then this there has been mostly stressful things going on today and I was brought to tears of grieving for my son. Now that it's evening I am feeling a little better, and I know my baby boy is always with me.
RILEY, I love you, by shweetie.

Wow, that is so cool :)
I am very greatful, because I was needing that motivational boost. I was feeling sad yesterday, or on New Years eve. It was just the previous year that my son RILEY and I were at home when that midnight hour struck and we went outside to see the fireworks (2 miles from home) and this time he was not here but by GODs blessing I had my grandbaby with me and I was thinking is this how it's supposed to be? GOD is this what you had planned? that I would not be alone? I think yes, GOD has a purpose and I need to be appreciative of even the smallest things.
I did not fall into dispair but the sadness was there and now it is lifted :) and I thank you all who have left me messages. I pray GODs blessings for you all too.

Dreams & Stuff

Thursday, December 28, 2006

I had a dream the other day about my Beloved Mom, and she was getting upset with me because she thought I was drinking and partying. Although I would never do this, but in my dream I was with my neices who did. I guess it hurts to see my mom upset in my dreams, because the night before she journeyed to Heaven I had a similar type of dream and it bothered me that I hurt my mom. I know she loved me and would do anything for me and that thought helps me to get through also knowing that my baby boy is in Heaven with his grandma too.

My other stuff, is that I am going back on WW, and have recieved my WW at home stuff. It's great since I had to pack up my old stuff, but all the items are different. I won't start the journal until next Monday but I am using a note book for now.
Oh yes I bought myself an iPOD and have since add music and I even started back walking, two days in a row, WOOHOO!

    Joanne Thought this poem could help you..
Praying for a better new year for you
A man found a cocoon of an emperor moth. He took it home so that he
could watch the moth come out of the cocoon. On the day a small opening
appeared, he sat and watched the moth for several hours as the moth
struggled to force the body through that little hole.
The moth seemed to be stuck and appeared to have stopped making progress.
It seemed as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no farther.
The man, in his kindness, decided to help the moth; so he took a pair of scissors
and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The moth then emerged
easily. But its body was swollen and small, its wings wrinkled and
shriveled. The man continued to watch the moth because he expected that,
at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to and able to
support the body, which would contract in time.
Neither happened! In fact, the little moth spent the rest of its life crawling
around with a small, swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
The man in his kindness and haste did not understand that the struggle required
for the moth to get through the tiny opening was necessary to force fluid from the
body of the moth into its wings so that it would be ready for flight upon achieving
its freedom from the cocoon. Freedom and flight would only come after the
struggle. By depriving the moth of a struggle, he deprived the moth of health.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If we were to go through
our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as
what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for
regrets, and don't forget the power in the struggle.
