I Love You.....

Sunday, September 14, 2008

It is only a few words, but a lot of times we forget to tell people. I created a post in one of my teams today telling people to remember to let their love ones know you care before they are taken from you. My manfriends best friend was taken from us late fri night, early sat morning. I've know this person for over 15 yrs. They were best friends for well over 20 yrs. I never knew that the last time I would hear his voice would be an hour before his death. He was in a horrific car accident and died at the scene at the age of 36. I hate that it took this to happen to make me look at life different, but is has. I called all of my friends and family and told them I loved them. I made a promise to enjoy my life. I am no longer going to sit around and feel sad about my weight, I am going to do something about it!!! I want to be able to look back and say I had a great life. My grandmother who is 84, has survived breast cancer. We were talking about it the other day and she said she was sick during treatment. She said her chemo(sp) made her really sick but she had to eat beacuse she had to take her insulin. She said if her cancer comes back she isn't going through treatment again. She has lived her life and done everything she wanted. I am making a promise to myself that I am going to do the same! I am so glad I was shown this site and such wonderful people. This is the first day of the rest of my life!! God Bless everyone!!!!

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. ((Hug)) This entry is very synonymous with my current thoughts within the last 24 hours. I reflected on alot of people I've known passing on this year out of the blue. Not prepped by an illness or anything - just out of the blue.

Thank you for this entry to remind us that each day we should live life to the fullest, and stop putting today off for tomorrow. No more procrastination on my end. No more until I do this.. or after this happens then.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your manfriend during this difficult time. All too often it takes the loss of a loved one to make us realize how precious life is and how quickly someone that we love can be gone forever. As you grieve the loss of your friend, remember the great moments that you shared and find a way to cherish them forever.

Why do I do this to myself.....

Saturday, August 23, 2008

After many years of doing things for others I am learning to love me and do for me. I have been in an on again off again relationship with someone for many years. I know deep down it is very toxic. I know that he can't love me the way I need to be loved, so why do I stay? Why do I keep doing this to myself? Why am I being bothered with someone who makes my skin crawl sometimes because of the things he says.

These are questions I keep asking myself. I would like to find someone who loves me, but at times I don't think I will. I think people would look at me in disgust because of my weight or people wouldn't accept my daughter because of her disability. I think of all these things instead of the positive things I have going for me. I am smart, I am funny, I am beautiful on the inside, I love helping people, I love to see other smile and happy. I could name a lot more so why do I think someone would meet me and fall in love with me, I don't know. I think the devil sends me little things to make me feel this way. For instance, the other day I accidently dialed the wrong number and the young man called me back. He said I had a nice voice and began a conversation. At first I just laughed it off, and then I said hey, you never know how you will meet "The One" so we had a few conversations and I thought he was really nice. He kept saying we should meet. He described himself and so did I. I even told him hey, I have a few extra pounds. He said what counts is on the inside. I felt that was too good to be true, but ya never know. We met face to face and we haven't spoken since. So now I am starting to get those feelings back. Why do I do this to my self???? emoticon

    Hi, I agree with FORBETTE. I was in the same situation. You must love yourself first, before dealing with anyone else.Then you are sending them a negative message and they will not treat you the way you should be treated. It took me a little while, now i can't put up with negativity. Believe me you will meet the right person. Now you need to concentrate on yourself. Look in the mirror and say positive things about you, until you really believe how beautiful you are inside and out. Your looking for love but in all the wrong places. Start with yourself first, then believe me all the rest will follow. emoticon emoticon

    You do this to yourself because it is a habit, and habits are hard to break, but they can be broken. You listed some very good things about yourself, tell them to yourself every day and add to them and do it until YOU believe them and you will start to feel better about yourself and when you feel better about yourself you will not let other people dictate how you feel. If I were you I would distance myself from the on-again-off-again relationship! Take some time for yourself to build yourself up, and when you feel good about you, you will attract like minded people, and people who feel good about themselves don't have to do things to try and put others down. I don't mean to sound like I know it all, I don't! This is just a subject that is very close to my heart, I have watched someone I love struggle for years in a very "toxic" relationship and it is so sad and frustrating to me! Good luck to you, and remember you deserve to be treated with love and respect.

Someone asked me.......

Sunday, August 10, 2008

How do I handle taking care of my daughter. My response was the same as any other time I am asked this question, I don't know any other way. People get on me for "babying" her, but she is mommies baby to me. Yea I know she's 14, but she is and always be my baby. I have stopped with the ponytails and I am trying to stop with the pooter in public, even though she doesn't mind, but she will always be my baby!!! Today when I got up I thought about that question and I related it to my lifestyle change(notice I didn't sat diet) A coworker asked me if it was getting on my nerves to have to keep measuring my food and I told him no, it has become part of my daily routine. I am trying to make exercise a part of that also. I have made reading labels a part of my normal routine when I try something new or reach for something I haven't had in awhile from the grocery store. So just as taking care of my daughter is a way of life for me, keeping me healthy and in shape has to be a way of daily living!!!

    I love this. I'm glad you told your co-worker what you said. Sometimes people see you doing good for yourself, then wan't to knock you down. Keep it up. Yes your daughter is always going to be your baby nomatter how old she gets. I use to hear the same thing. I didn't spoil my two sons, i was just giving them what they needed, along with the love i didn't have. It feels great. Even if it is a open ear to them. Now that they are growing up, they are very respectable, and know how to give love.LOL emoticon

    What a great response! I think I would have said the same. That's just the way it is, huh?! I thought about what you said your co-worker said about getting tired of measuring food. Honestly, at one point it did get on my nerves, but I had to re-assess things and see that it was for my benefit. Now I do it and don't even think about! It makes me feel good and even gives me a little motivation.

I'm proud of you for what you have accomplished in your life with your daughter and your new healthy lifestyle! Keep on keeping on! Good luck to you on your wonderful journey.

Prayers are needed......

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

My best friend needs extra prayers sent up, she was diagnosed with breast cancer the day before yesterday. We have been friends for 31 yrs(I was 5 and she was 6). She caught it early so this is good. She is going through all of her tests to see what type of treatment she will need, but I have faith that it won't be too extensive.

Ladies please make sure you are getting your annual check ups. This has even made me schedule appts. I told her we are going through this together. So if you see my updated pics and I am rocking the short look, you know why. (that will be a nice work out cut)

Thanks in advance for the extra prayers emoticon
