Getting Up, To Fall Off & Stay Off

Monday, September 08, 2008


I've been gaining & I'm almost back to where I started, not good. Okay, so frustrations come and go but one thing that remains is the desire to be about God's will for my life! Which means that I'm never down too long!

I'm entering a new phase in life, I just know it. And these pounds MUST fall off & stay off!!! This fall I've got to get down at least 15 pounds before 2009 comes around! I'm starting with at least 7 by Thanksgiving. being 175 to start off the new year would be GRAND. Loosing some body fat & toning some muscle would be even better!!!

Well the lyrics written below are a great inspiration for me (just recently). So I thought I'd share them with you! Hope you enjoy!

"GET UP" by Mary Mary

Layin' low Rest n' pause
Sleeping long Slow motion
Gonna do Shoulda, coulda
Woulda done Excuses

What are you afraid of? Don't you know what you're made of?
One of God's greatest creations Take this invitation now

Get up 'Cause you can't stop
Get up Got a lot to do 24 hours Almost gone
Get up Don't sit there Get up If you wanna get there
Clocks don't stop and Time won't wait

He said She said They said What do you say?
It's your dreams Your choice Your time Your life
So don't you Don't you Miss it

What are you afraid of? Don't you know what you're made of?
One of God's greatest creations Take this invitation now

Get up 'Cause you can't stop
Get up Got a lot to do 24 hours Almost gone
Get up Don't sit there Get up If you wanna get there
Clocks don't stop and Time won't wait

Welcome to the rest Of your life
From now on, just try
To live more, want more Work a little harder
Dance more, laugh more Be a little smarter
Hug a little longer Love a little stronger
You've been down But now it's time to

Get up 'Cause you can't stop
Get up Got a lot to do 24 hours Almost gone
Get up Don't sit there Get up If you wanna get there
Clocks don't stop and Time won't wait

One more time, say
Get up (9x)

    Pounds are so easily gained but so hard to take off. Just stick with it... Don't let down. Come to the Surviving Cancer team page. It's quite active now. You might just find the spark to keep you going....without going backwards. Of course... We can do "all things through Christ". That sometimes doesn't make it easier because it's till us who has to be motivated to "Take of the weight and keep it off". Now I'm just rambling on.... I trust you are FEELING ok these days.

Refilling My Vessel As Summer Ends

Monday, August 25, 2008


Okay, so frustrations come and go but one thing that remains is the desire to be about God's will for my life! Which means that I'm never down too long!

But I tell ya, this weight loss journey is so not what I expected. But I've met wonderful encouraging people here, that definitely helps. I have made many changes but I’m not moving forward, as fast, as I would like (but so is life sometimes). And truth be told, everything happens for a reason so...

Well, today is August 25, 2008 and as summer comes to an end, I need a push into healthier & consistent eating habits. My recent health problems make it more difficult when it comes to exercising. I seem to try too hard at times (sometimes trying to fit in with everyone else) I overdo it and push my progress back.

So this week I am trying to find another way, a better way, to care for my vessel. This requires some alone time with God, drinking water and keeping a clear head (to name a few things).

I hope that you find your journey to be a growing experience as well! Well, I best get going, time get some water for this vessel!!!

"I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made By GOD!"

God is on our (your) side!

    This walk we take in life period is our journey & we do this weight loss thing to prolong our walk in this life! We also need to learn to enjoy life without feeling like we over did it?! We do our best everyday and that's the best we can do.

The most you can ever do is the best that you can!

Blessings, I'm here for Razi & much love!!

New Week New Goals Feelin' New

Monday, August 11, 2008


So today is going pretty good, so far! Got some veggies in, HMR shake & some H2O!!!

I plan on eating more veggies, drink more water and do as many HMR shakes as I can. Oh and getting as much exercise in everyday as I can.

I walked to church Sunday morning ( boy was that too much) and for the evening service I walked home with my boyfriend. That was a bit difficult too!

Today I want to get in a lil cleaning and some belly dance with FitTV's SHIMMY SHIMMY SHIMMY!

Must Lose Over 15 Lbs. (of Fluid) In August!

Saturday, August 02, 2008


So for this month, August, one of the things I'll focus on is losing about 17 lbs. Why so much??? Well, I tappered off a few of my meds (the cardio ones) and the fluid started building back up. *Note that fluid build up is not the same as having water weight, it's a heart issue. So I gained about 14 or so pounds within about a week (6-7 days).
emoticon
My fingers, face, hands, feet, legs arms and stuff are REALLY PUFFY!!! My doctor wants me to start 2 back and double one so that the fluid will come off. And boy does it have me going to the bathroom like I drank 100 gallons of water or something!!! LOL

I also have to do some bloodwork on Monday and they moved my Aug. 19th appt. up to the 5th, Tues.
During the 6 weeks that I was in the hospital I had it for the first time, throughout my body and all around my lungs (congestive heart failure & lymphodema).
So I would like to get the fluid (different than water weight) off and perhalps loss about 2 or so lbs of fat!

We'll see how it goes...I have some other medication changes for this month as well.

So it should be an interesting month.

    Sorry about the fluid build up. I pray that the Dr. will be able to get you regulated on your meds. Keep close to the Lord.... and to the bathroom!!
Be encouraged today.
