BUSY AUGUST

Thursday, September 03, 2009

WOW!! I can't believe it is September already. August was a busy month for me. We went to the Ohio State Fair, The Kentucky State Fair, a Reds ballgame (my first at the new stadium), Picnics and Reunions.

September is looking to be full of baby and wedding showers, weddings, more end of summer picnics, the National Quartet Convention and the Spark Convention in Cincinnati. Hope to see some of you there.

    Isn't it wonderful all the different things you now love to do instead of avoiding? You seem to have grown mentally and gotten smaller physically. You are doing an awesome job. Keep it up.

Take Care and God Bless ! ! !

emoticon It has been 5 months since my surgery and I feel great. I can not believe the difference in my life. My husband, nephew and I went to the Ohio State Fair on Monday. We walked for 8 hours, rode the rides and had a great day. Last year at this time I could not have done any of that. I couldn't even fit in the rides and close the safety bars. God has blessed me with a second chance and I intend to live life fully. I do not take anything for granted anymore, I can now give myself a pedicure if I choose to do so and not have to pay someone to do it for me. I do not have to worry about breaking a chair or fitting into one. I go places I would not go and do things I would not do before. I LOVE LIFE for the first time in years. emoticonRhonda

What a beautiful day, I went to my sisters house and everyone could not believe the difference in me. I loved it, all of the hard work is paying off. I also got to see 2 of my sons and my granddaughter. I am down 54 pounds now and am ready to take on the rest of it.

    Rhonda,

You should be so proud to say good bye to 54 lbs. You are doing a great job. Isn't it wonderful when other people start to notice the difference in how your body looks? We look at our body everyday so we do not always notice the differences. But let someone who hasn't seen you a while see you and they notice right away and compliment you. That is a wonderful feeling, cherish it and be proud of it.

Take Care and God Bless ! ! !

I am so excited, today I am down 50 pounds and that is not morning weight. The amazing thing is that I look at my 6 year old nephew that weighs 50 pounds and I think I have just lost a person. I can not even imagine carrying him around everyday. emoticon

I just love it when we lose those little people or as I measure 10 5lbs of sugar. Keep up the great job and keep on Sparking.

Have a Blessed weekend.

Today was my first day at the health plex. I had a nice trainer that did not try to kill me. I knew I was out of shape but did not realize how out of shape that was. I did my first round on the elliptical and I loved it. He then took me through various strength building equipment. I am much stronger in muscle than I am in cardio. I can't wait to go again, my goal for now is at least one additional repetition per visit to start and then upwards. emoticon

    Rhonda,

It always helps when you have a trainer that you feel comfortable with. I am glad that you had a good time and enjoyed it. It helps when you do exercise that you enjoy. Sounds like you are taking steps in the right direction. Great job !

Take Care and God Bless ! ! !
