Today we bought a camping trailer

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Today we went out to look for a camping trailer...
Camping is one of the things I like to do but have not done for a long time....

I started to wonder today what other things I put off because of my weight, then this hit me.....What has my family or friends put off because of my weight...I wonder how many things Gary did not go or ask me to do because of my weight...He knew I was very embarrassed to go to new places becuae I worried so much if the seat would be big enough or hold enough. or would there be a lot of stairs or have to walk a long way....

Wonder how many of us have had the same issues, we don't even want to think of how our weight impact friends and family?

we have the power to change it all.
Today as we went from place to place I realized how much my world has change, it's open a whole world of possibilities and it feels so wonderful...I'm not going to dwell on what I missed as I can't change that but I am going to work on what I can today ,and all the tomorrows to get out and enjoy the world around me.

We found a perfect trailer for us and we are planning our first adventure. Gary would never say anything about my weight and holding him back but I can just see the excitement in his face when we talk about where we want to go and what we want to do....knowing I can now do it all...

Have a healthy day and think if you can't loose the weight for YOU maybe you can for your children, husband and your family....

    We have a tent we have not used since before we got married. We are hoping to experiment with it next year. Once madison is a little older.

Have fun and enjoy it Kitt.

    Congrats on the new camper. You will enjoy it so much. Have lots of fun and enjoy it.

You are so right about our weight effecting others. I notice the shock in my kids eyes when I suggest a bike ride, or walking to the playground. Six months ago, those things would have never happened. If we went to the playground, it was in the van, and I would sit on a bench reading while they played. Now I play with them. I am sorry I missed so much of my children's childhood being fat, but I am going to make the most of what I have now. The kids are enjoying the new me as much as I am.

Have a great day!

    I think you really hit the nail right on, excess weight keeps us from doing so many things that we don't realize what a hold it has on our life.

Enjoy your new adventures! emoticon

    Excellent thoughts, Kitt! Too many of us think it's only about "me," but the world isn't just about "me" -- it's about "me" and everyone around me. Thank you for sharing this powerful revelation!

And have fun camping!!! You are living, girl!!!

    That's awesome, Kitt! Thank you for the motivation. I know that I have not done a lot of fun things with Rocky because of my weight. I know he would have loved for us to go to an amusement park together, but I couldn't do it. Luckily, he was able to go with family. I think one of the first things I'm going to do after I lose at least 100 lbs is to take my son to Disney World. Even though he's almost 19 years old, I think he would really appreciate that.

Thank you so much, Kitt, for being such a great inspiration. You are awesome!!!

Friday weigh in

Friday, September 18, 2009

Today is my weigh in day, but yesterday was my prep day for my colonoscopy and well you takes stuff that cleans you out... emoticon
So this morning I was 148, but that is not a true weight, as I know I'll gain it back when I start eating and drinking again, so I'm changing my ticker....I could see what tomorrow brings but will wait till next friday and hope for a truer weigh in

all went well and I won't have to do it again for 10 years.

Nice thing this time when I went to the hospital, they did not need the bigger cuff to do my B/P
I did not need the big Gown and when they weighed me I did not big wheel chair either....

Have a healthy evening and remember if your at that age you owe to your self and your family to get checked....colon cancer is curable when detected early...and it is painless , they knock ya out you don't know what they really did and you don't have to be scared of pain....

Take care

    I had my first colonoscopy done a couple of years ago...really dreaded it, but the medication they gave me was wonderful and I don't remember a thing from the procedure itself.

Some of us could use something like that for our jobs. emoticon

Glad to hear it went well!!! You have a good perspective on the weight, too. Hopefully you'll be at that weight next week, or very, very close. And the other things you mentioned -- what a cause for celebration!!!!! More non-scale victories that we don't think about until they happen. You rock!!!

    You can do it, the first time is always filled with apprehension, but it will be fine. I have had 4 or so, I have lost track. Just think, you will be able to be a role model for others!

I wonder

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

As I sit here tonight I wonder where I might be if I never found spark people and all the wonderful people I have meet.

I wonder if I'd be a live, could I walk ...gee I need to stop this line of thinking and just be happy I did find it, and I can not only walk but I can jog, ride a bike, or do just about anything I want to.

emoticon emoticon

Good Night dear friends
