I want to just give myself an update on me. Your holding your own right now. You have made it through two whole days with weighing and measureing food and your not gaunt yet. I think you may hold out another day...
Tomorrow is my doctors appointment for more tests for these darn cancer cells. I'm going to be fine. My neighbors little girl brought me over a cake, pound none the less, and I took it graciously as she is only about nine, and I had a small sliver, this way I can say I had some and enjoyed it. My point is she has no idea about what is going on with me, and for me this was the lord reaching out and telling me all is going to be fine. I heard from my son tonight also for the first time since he left. He is holding his own. My prayers go out to him, I hope he gets clean.
My buddy whom got me started on spark is back at it. she began today and i'm so thrilled to have her back. I so missed her on this journey. It is nice to have someone to share ideas with in person. I love my spark friends very much, but I love my spark buddy very much also.
Ok that is about it for now, i'm getting there from here, one step, day and week at a time.

I'm updating my trackers to show the weight on the ww scales. It will seem to me and others that I have gained but the case is i'm actually down .2. I just find it easier to see my weight in one location then to be discouraged when I step on the scales. So to not have to keep figuring out the loss and getting upset when I step on the scales I decided to show this weight.
I'm still holding my own, i'm going to try a new dvd I borrowed from my daughter, biggest loser cardio . I figureed this would be good on days of rain and such. So i'm off to try it now.
I have all my housework done this sunday morning and the rest of the day is mine. I love sundays. they are my day to chill, church, and have a nice dinner with my husband before the work week takes over once again.
I'm going to get there from here. God bless you all this sunday morning.

Life is not supposed to be fair.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.
- Henry Ward Beecher
You don’t have the power to make life “fair,” but you do have the power to make life joyful.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
When these showed up in my email today and as I read them I thought of myself and a few others who may on occasion said life wasn't fair. No it isn't, but it is right. Just because we are going through things today in our lives, and I know I am, doesn't mean the grass is greener on the other side. We are on the outside looking in, and what is inside isn't always what it seems. I hope that makes sense. I have learned in my life that just because things look good, there not. Some can cover a lot better then others.
As I go through my trials with my son, and myself I have recieved wonderful messages from people who have gone trough similar things in life. They seemed ok to me on this site, but alas they are just human like everyone else. We must never think that god has forsaken us. He is always one step ahead, planning for the next trial in our lives. easing our path so to speak. You know I love the saying" if he brings you to it, he will bring you through it". How true it is. And remember what we want isn't always what we need. The lord knows this and he will give us what is needed. l
I'm feeling much better in my own life right now. I have my family who during times of crisis is always with me, I have my daughter whom god blessed me with, and I have friends both near and far whom make me laugh, and let me cry when it is needed. Spark has been the greatest thing to happen to my life and I can never thank the lord enough for giving it to me when I needed it the most.
So as we undertake this great journey, remember the lord is leading us in the direction we need to head. We are like my pups on their leash, they want to go in one direction but I have control and I leas them in the right direction. The lord is my lead and I will follow where he takes me for I know that he has my best interest at heart and If I veer off the path I may get hurt. Trust in him and trust in yourself.
I'm going to get there from here, one step, day or week at a time.

I wanted to drop a quick line to let all know i'm doing great this week. My exercise is actually up from last week and i'm sticking to my diet, lifestyle, ww points, whatever we are calling it today. For me it is a journey. I'm learning balance in all things and especially where food is concerned. I have noticed I don't crave the chips like I once did and as for chocolate, well that wasn't my biggie in the first place and as long as I just stay away i'm fine. I actually have some chips (reduced fat) I bought to have with sandwiches. They are still in the cupboard and I have one one helping. Weighed on my scales non the less. Just no taste for them, give me baby carrots, those are my new best friend. My grandson is two and he comes to my house and asks for the carrots. Go figure. So we are teaching those around us as we go. Never think your children aren't watching and learning. That is why getting healthy and staying there is so important not just for you but for all who are around you.
I"m closing now and going to finish getting ready for work. Is it friday yet? I"m going to get there from here, one step, day, or week at a time.
