I have been gone for some time but I am back again, my life depends on it.

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

My health is going down hill too fast for me. I am diabetic and my A1C is 11. I have open sores on my legs that wont go away. I don't want to lose my legs so I have to lose weight and stop smoking. I have been on no smoking for 14 days now. I smoke about 3 to 4 cigs a day now. I was a chain smoker. It will get down to 2 and then none. I pissed and I had blood in my urine and a lot of it. Its a bladder infection so I got meds for it. I don't need it to go to my kidneys. I have to go to ears, nose and throat doctor to have the puss bags from being invaded by many many of these puss bags. Also need a colonoscopy done as well for the same thing.
There are other things wrong with me but I just want to see the damage done by myself for the way I lived and also the damage Satan has done. I have decided to correct the way I have been living. I need to make changes so I lose weight to fight off the diabetes and stop smoking go keep my body parts, and pray everyday that Jesus sees me on the way.
That's it for now.

03/16/2013 Saturday - Day Two

Saturday, March 16, 2013

While on SparkPeople yesterday, trying to get as many points as I could for my first day back, I get a call from a person I know that does not have a licence, vehicle, or very many friends at all. He needed a ride into town to get some items that were on sale and some movies from a friend to watch over the weekend. I had to decide if I wanted to just work on what I wanted or help another person out. Because I am a Christian, I decided that I could still work on the SparkPeople program by doing some walking with this person to get my daily steps in. So I helped the friend. I felt I made a good decision. It was nice out yesterday so it was a pleasant outing.


03/13/2013 Friday "I am back"

Friday, March 15, 2013

I have been here before but took a break because my illnesses took a bad turn. I am back and ready to lose weight again.
I made new goals. I want to weigh around 145 pounds. I am 238 right now. Have lost 14 pounds since I was last here, but that surprises me since I had to sit with my legs elevated all the time and hardly any exercises at all. But I will take it.
My weakness is being consistnnt and stick with doing something so I hope that I will be inspired by the people here to stick with it.

Well off to a good start today. Got up around ten.
I have started using an alarm that goes off every 3 hours in order to remind me to do something at that time. It is either eat or take my blood sugar or something like that.
I got all the calls made that I needed to make.
I have two laptops that need fixed but I am at a stalled point on both of them. That's OK, I will get what I need to finish them up.
I used my dehydrator to dry red and green apple slices. I can't eat them without my dentures, but if I add milk to them they soften up enough to eat them. I can also make apple sauce as well but haven't gotten that far yet.
I went shopping to get condiments, spices and other things needed for this diet plan. Eating 5 meals a day, even though they are small is a lot for me. I was too use to one meal a day and that would be in the evening time.
I am still working on quitting smoking as well. I have to suck on candies in order to keep from smoking and it really does work. I was so surprised.
I cleaned up my kitchen and living room.
It is another day in the world I live in. Hopefully what I am doing will bring some good changed.

    Hi msroby, sounds like you are doing great. Keep up the good work. I quit smoking 5 years ago and the money saved is astronomical not to mention the health benefits. We now have 10k saved up to redo our kitchen I say that goes to us quitting smoking. Oh my, you were eating one meal a day. I am so glad you are getting away from that. For one thing that puts your body in starvation mode and it stores all you eat instead of losing weight. secondly that is soooooo bad for diabetics. Keep up the good work dove ya Kitcorps

Where did I go?

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

I don't know what took me away from SP, but I am back. So many things are going on in my life right now.
1. Want to move to town.
2. Leaving the abusive boyfriend when I move.
3. Trying to quit smoking and doing pretty well as I am cutting back each week.
4. Need to lose weight
5. Trying to take my blood sugars 3 x a day.
6. Sorting the house of things to decide what to move with me and what not to.
7. I was doing just one or two things at a time and now have to do all this at the same time, so also trying to organize a day to get everything in.

I am sure I am not the busiest woman on the planet, I get that, but I do have a load on my shoulders because I am disabled and can't stand for very long and can't carry heavy things due to a back injury. I refuse to let Satan take me down, so at my slow pace and doing what I can I move forward.
So on I go to get done what I can and this time not give up.

    One thing at a time, one day at a time. Even though you have many things to deal with at once, you can do this!
