Determination

Friday, October 10, 2014

It has been a long time in coming, but finally I am down from a 2 liter bottle of diet coke a day to 1 glass.

I never thought I would say that. But I am drinking a lot of water, cranberry juice, and 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day. I think anything is better than soda.

No bread in the house. No lunch meat in fridge. These were my downfalls.

Trying to do right by myself, and to get to losing weight again.

    Proud of you. You can do this. With the walking and not drinking all that sugar you should feel better. Also you might feel a little bad with the caffeine withdrawal. Coke is a straight shot of caffeine as well as sugar. Keep up the good job. emoticon

  YAY for you! I know it's not easy but I hope you feel much better. The weight will follow. Slow but sure.

    I made the move to 100% juice - namely apple juice&cranberry, and putting lime/lemon in my water once in a while. I've found having at least 8oz (think coffee mug) an hour I'm awake helps me maintain proper hydration for me. Of course we need more than that, but... Adding a touch of juice into the water tricks the body to not send it immediately to the bladder once a certain amount of plain water has been consumed. At least that's what they told me in pre-diabetes class at the VA hospital.

Peace to you on your journey.

    One step at a time. You have a good start. It doesn't seem fair that pounds come on easy and are hard to loose.

Saturday, September 27, 2014

It doesn't seem possible that I moved a month ago. I am so happy.

I get out everyday, I am keeping busy. If I could only quit eating at night.

Happiness

Friday, September 19, 2014

Happiness and peace come from within. No stress or worries, just me and no one else. No one upsetting the applecart, so to speak.

I am always out and I do not miss Middle Creek at all.

It is nice if I need a bus to walk out the front door. One day at a time, and loving it.

Enjoying Life!

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I have been out just about everyday since I have moved, except for 2 hot hot days and 2 COLD. I can truly tell you I am so happy or maybe I should say at Peace. Life is to short to be in such a bad situation and to be totally unhappy.

I am going to eat lunch and go to the Highlands shopping mall, only about 10 - 12 stores. Walmart, Cabela's, Lane Bryant, Old Navy, Appleby's, Penny's, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Books-a-Million. But you have to careful, the last bus down is a t 4:30.

See you all tomorrow.

Walking

Friday, September 12, 2014

The boat festival was nice. It was just setting up and a gentleman was sitting alone waiting for his brother. They have a boat there, and I got a quick tour. His aunt is 90 and she was there along with another cousin who was 74. Beautiful boat. I believe you can see them for a cost. My sister says, Joyce will talk to anyone. Yes, I said, and I am never lonely or without. A friend once made is a friend for life. Even if you never see them again. I never take anyone for granted, and I thank or greet everyone I meet. It is called being polite and kind.

MY SISTER CALLS ME A BUM MAGNATE.

Jo Ann is just stuffy, and does not have any joy in her life.

Wishing everyone love. Joyce

    I'll bet your days are a lot happier than your sisters are. I wish you happy days every day! (My day was happy. Our temps have been over 100 for ages and today it was 80's and now 60's. I couldn't believe it!) Hugs! emoticon
