So, I had to go this morning for a biopsy (oh the things we girls have to go through)..
Because my doctor was not satisfied with how things went during the biopsy and the results of the ultrasound that followed, I will have to undergo another procedure in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, the tissue that he was able to obtain will be sent away and I should have the results on Monday.
Thank you to everyone who sent up prayers for me today. I really appreciate it. Sometimes, if I allow myself, I have wondered why all of this is happening to me at once, but then I am reminded that God did not promise us every day would be sunshine and roses here, and that we are not really supposed to get comfortable in this world, afterall, we are just passing through. emoticon
As for my eating today, I am on target, however, I have been hungry all day today. I can't help but believe this is just my "stress" eating trigger that I often deal with in times of stress. Sooo... I have for the most part ignored it. I am on target for my points and I am determined to get through this without the aid of my crutch (food).
Again, thank you to everyone who sent up prayers this morning in my behalf. God bless you all.

    I'm sorry you'll have to go through another procedure, but I'm glad you will get the results of that one soon. God is awesome and will watch over you!

Dear Father, Your daughter needs Your help and we raise her up to You and ask that You give her the strength and courage she needs to get through this. We ask that You bless her doctors with the skill and knowledge they need to do the work according to Your will. In Jesus' Holy Name we pray. Amen.

    Thank you everyone for your prayers and your kind words. I know God will see me though this. I just don't like the waiting. But, all things in time... and to everything there is a season.
I am still fighting the temptation to medicate with food. Uggh

    Well, this sounds like the Dr. almost said, hurry up and wait regarding another future test. I am glad you will hear something on Monday though. And I am glad and assured the Lord is with you in all things, always! emoticon

Just mumbling.. :)

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I have been doing ok with my plan this week. It has had its challenges (still at my daughter's house), but all in all, a good week so far. I really have enjoyed the company though. We have always been close and get along great, so that's a plus.
I have to go this morning for the biopsy I mentioned earlier in the week. I'd be lying to say I wasn't a little apprehensive about it, but I know God will be with me. Please hold me in your prayers....
If the biopsy goes well and the aftereffects are not that great, I will be going home either later today, or tomorrow. I can remember a time when I would have been looking forward to that more than anything.... "to be home again." But, since this divorce started, its hard to look at the house as my "home." Sometimes It feels more like a prison. There are just so many memories. I am looking forward to making new memories one day soon in my new "home," wherever that may be.

My Little Sweetheart

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Today was tough. I am scheduled for a biopsy in a couple of days and have a dentist appointment tomorrow, because of that I am staying with my daughter for a few days. Cooking in someone else's kitchen is challenging. On top of that I also watched my grand-daughter today. I should have planned better. And I did eat within my points values, but I just feel like I could have made better choices. I will do better tomorrow!
I did enjoy my grandbaby today. She has been my absolute joy. She and I went to Walmart after my daughter left for work. While browsing through the isles of endless Valentine's Day candies and gifts, she says to me... "Mamaw, are you going to get a Valentine's Day present from a sweetheart?" lol. I told her I didn't have a sweetheart.. to which she replied, "Mamaw, I AM YOUR SWEETHEART FOREVER." I tell ya, my heart melted. I am the luckiest Mamaw in the whole world. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a visit with your little granddaughter at this difficult time in your life is just what the doctor ordered! Don't worry about your situation; it's just another opportunity to trust the Lord. He will see you through this and make a way where there seems to be no way. The battle is the Lord's but the victory belongs to you!

Setting goals?

Monday, February 11, 2013

I know I am a little slow about setting goals. I often am afraid to set goals. While others work away at them, I am always the apprehensive one. If I aim high, I feel like I am setting myself up for failure. If I aim low, it feels like I am taking the lazy way out. I need to find a happy medium lol. Don't get me wrong, I have some goals I have set as far as my weight loss is concerned, however, what I tend to do is keep them private.
I am curious to know, is there a right or a wrong way to set goals? What has worked for you? Should they be public? Any suggestions?

    My goals aren't so much "goals', but trying to make lifestyle changes. I just realized that I've been walking almost every day for a year now. That didn't start out as a goal, just simply doing what needed to be done for healthier living. I hope by now it's become a lasting change!

    set mini goals, something that you can attain in a week rather than long term. Also put a visual somewhere that you will see frequently to remind you.

    I honestly have problems with goals because like New Year resolutions they quickly escape my mind and desires.

    Just my experience speaking here, but what worked for me was to set realistic goals: ones I knew I could reach but still stretched me. So instead of saying I'd exercise every day for 30 minutes, I set a more realistic goal of exercising 30 minutes at least 4 days (I had been exercising 0 minutes for 0 days!).

I did not make mine public until I had reached my first goals. Then i felt confident enough to share with others.

I think it is a personal preference.

Looking at the week ahead

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I had a good week this week as far as motivation and inspiration go. I did really good in some areas, and need improvement in others. I tend to do just fine until life interrupts. Then it becomes a juggling match of tracking, trying to get in all of my healthy guidelines, meet my daily points, and drink all of my water. Something usually suffers. This week's struggle was getting all of my veggies and fruits in. But, here it is Sunday again, and tomorrow I face the scales again. I am anxious but excited again to see how I have done.
I also had to go to my doctor this week for some problems I have been having. The result of that appointment is a biopsy to be performed on this coming Thursday. I can't lie, I am a little nervous about it. But, I am trying to trust in God more and let Him have His will, and not mine, in my life. With that being said, I won't go on about it.
I have a busy week coming. Numerous appointments, etc. I am determined, however, to stick to my plan. No excuses! I am feeling ready to make some goals so that will be first on my list tomorrow.
Things are looking up for me as far as my attitude, energy level, and outlook go. I am even starting to feel the changes that are taking place. I am not crying as much anymore, so that has to be good, right? lol. I know I have a long hard road ahead of me, but I am taking those steps every day toward a new and brighter life for me. emoticon

    Mellie, so good to catch up this evening. I will be in prayer for you. I like to pray Scriptures. I am praying this for you: Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. emoticon
