just sad

Friday, May 04, 2012

So last evening I got a call from my son that the latest foster child who nobody else wanted and who they have been taking care of the last two months, Is now wanted by his biological family. He is five months old, they didn't want him or visit at the hospital, but now that he is 10 pounds 11 ounces they want him.
my son and his wife helped baby gain weight. they gave him their love and attention and though he is still fragile, all of a sudden people are coming out of the woodwork to take him.
my son and his wife are so devastated.
They were told this child was available for adoption.
Not to be on the county rolls but to be a permanent member of our family.
But now we do not know. I am heart sick. Baby has so many medical needs and may be challenged but they wanted him anyway. Please pray for God's will.
But they really want to have a child to raise.

    Praying for your family and the newest grandchild. This is a heart wrenching tale. I am sad too.

The task of caring for a challenged child was probably too much for the birth family at first. The baby should stay where he is truly loved and cared for. I won't even say what might happen to the child if he is moved to a family that can't decide if they want him 'full time' or not.

    I will continue to pray for the baby and your family. We will keep asking God to intervene, and do what is best for everyone.
May you find comfort in the fact that the baby IS loved very much, and he knows this.

I will have 100 points for today if I post this blog.1

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

So while waiting for the coffee to perk I will go ahead and post this Blog.
I did so well with breakfast and lunch but then I found some chocolate cake which will
blow my weight off the scales. I chose not to walk because it is raining.
Because I did not want to walk at the MALL . I chose to not use the tread mill or the elliptical or the stationary bike. No I am sitting here pounding on the computer .

So it is either too hot or too cold, too dark or too bright, Too rainy or too dry.
When will I choose to go for a walk. It is my goal to increase my walk from 30 minutes up to 60. And 3 miles in the 60 minutes ... I can do it. but will I?

Small changes done consistently make the changes that lead to permanent change.
I have been preaching to myself that as I make small changes I will reach my goals.
So no eating at work. It is only 2 1/2 hours I can get through 3 hours without eating.
It is the strawberries that got me last time.
Walking 5x a week 30 minutes but I need to increase my milage.
Work in the yard : planting, pulling weeds or pruning. 30 minutes 3 x a week. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat

now I am going off to replace the syrup in my humming bird feeders.
they are just such a joy to watch. One comes and buzzes around as I change the feeders. They sound like a little airplane zooming in. I just stay still till he settles down after all it is his nature to be protective of his food source.

Almost to 100,000 points!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

I wanted to put a before and after picture on this blog but the after is still not as good as I want it to be. I also gained and am not at 187 instead of 166 and want to get that weight off.. What I found is when I got to 176 I was so flabby it scared me and I stopped exercising. I feel less flabby at 187 but doctor wants me at 166 .
So because I am having so much pain I need to be willing to get out there and do my 60 minutes of walking. I wonder if they have solutions for all the skin that will be sagging and , quite uncomfortable?

I started to get my hair cut short about a year ago so...
I am going to find some of those pictures but
I have not been willing to take any because i am not loosing dispite
100,000 spark points .
I know I have kept 30 pounds off but what have I done for you today.

    I think you are emoticon
I am considering getting my hair cut short. I do not really like it, but it will make it so much easier to handle as I exercise.
I wonder about all of the flabby skin, too. It has taken me 3 years to lose the 50 pounds I've lost... I have another 50 to go. My skin isn't too bad now. But I know the next 50 will affect the skin. Will deal with that when it gets here.
I do not do pictures. I have never photographed well. Even when I WAS thin! I may feel differently when I get to goal. Right now, no pics.
emoticon on almost 100,000 points! WOW!
I look forward to gettinghtere, myself!
You are an inspiration! I CAN do this! Thank you!
Hope your week goes well, and you have less pain!

Trip to SF

Monday, April 09, 2012

The excavation work continues next door but the little dude sleeps right through it. Which is good because he eats every two hours around the clock.
Typical new born pattern

Had a great trip to SF. Sat with the baby while son #2 finished dropping a ceiling and did some errands ... He is creating an extra room so we are able to stay with them when they need help with the baby. I really love them both and am happy to do it. Pray that they will all be safe.
I am feeling better but my neck is not all that happy.
I have trouble sleeping because of the discomfort.
I am just taking one day at a time.
It is good that I drink so much water. will be needing to drink a little bit more.
We will see if my two weeks of no loss in spite of the effort, will result in a loss this next week. I just need to keep trust the system.
