April 15th

Sunday, April 15, 2007

Today is my grandchild's birthday, Maeghan is 6 years old today, wow time flys really fast. I was at the hospital when she was born. She was a Easter Sunday baby, they put a hat on her with bunny ears, that was the very first time I saw and held her. Now I have to make a long distance phone call 6 hours away to chat with her, she got a new bike, she was so excited.
Today would also have been my mother-in-laws birthday, she passed away nearly 2 years ago, she was fantastic, in 25 years we never had a bad word between us, god bless her I know she is at peace with pop, now reunited.
It's nearly 2 years also that my Mom passed away April 25th, this time 2 years ago I was back in the UK living in the hospital spending two weeks with my Mom before she passed away. It is still very hard to believe, but I know it's true.
My Dad wrote a poem for her shortly after she passed away.



He is now adjusting to being by himself, they meet when they were 14 and 15 years old, Mom was 74 when she passed away. They had only ever shared their lives with one another, how great could that have been.

Well that's my feelings for today.

My back is killing me today, it started last night just after dinner, don't know what I did.....managed a good sleep on my back thanks to Advil and a sleeping tablet. Keeping up with the Advil today. I have managed to get on the excercise ball and do some dumbell excercises. If I feel better later today then I will go for a walk, but I think the treadmill is out for today.
I will do what ever I can manager to keep me in the game. Every calorie counts right....going to keep positive all day.

    Hi Lynne

That was a nice and also sad poem your father wrote but you can feel the love he felt for your mom.
I know how it feels to live here and your parents are across the pond, I have been here 25 years and each time when you leave there, it is so hard. So your granddaughter is living in England?
My daughter is in Holland right now and is returning tomorrow even she said toda,y I wish I could stay.
I always felt torn between 2 countries not really belonging to either of them. In the last couple years it does feel a little diffrent, since my own children are here now and things have changed so much there. I feel sad not able to get in the car and go see them for coffee etc. Hopefully I go back at the end of the summer. You have a great day and God Bless you

Got weighed today and back to 144-lbs, done excercises, kept calorie count down. Had a couple of bad weekends food wise. Perhaps thats what did it, mind you it was Easter Weekend and all the kids came home for their Turkey Dinner.
Joined in a challenge today with a buddy Kathy hope this goes better, she will keep her eye on my nutrition and excercise and I will do the same for her. So that may work, hopefully.
Really found it tuff today to stay in a positive mood been thinking alot about my Mom, cannot get her out of my head today. Pretty soon coming up to 2yrs since she passed away, not looking forward to April 25th, still miss her a great deal. It does get a little easier the longer time goes on and at least the 1st of everything has passed. I will be going out that evening with the Red Hat Group I am in because it is also International Red Hat day. Think Mom pointed me in that direction from up above!! strange I never though about Red Hatters until after Mom passed then it came to me to join, after a few months I found out that International Red Hat day is on the anniversary of her passing, sure she must have had something to do with that.
Life goes on eh.
Anyway looking forward to knowing a bit more about Kathy my buddy in the challenge for Memorial Day. Hope we can both meet our targets. Good luck to both of us.

    Hi lynne

I am sorry you don't feel well today, but we are all here to support you.
Wearing the red hat will be like celebrating her live .
I don't know how it is to lose your mom but each time I leave mine behind I always wonder if it is the last time, it upsets me.
Last January when I saw her mind was going I wondered will she even recognize me the next time I see her.
You have a nice evening and I will pray for you .

Sorry to hear about youe mother. I've been there myself. My mother died 14 years ago March 26th. Her birthday is coming up April 19th. I still think about her, but those first few years were very tough. She died young ~66.
It's wonderful that you've joined a group, and it IS special that their International Day is on the anniversary. It is a special day for you to remember her, and spend time being close to her. I'm sure you have good memories which will sustain you.
I'll be thinking of you.
Your Buddy, KAthy

Sorry to hear your stuck , but chin up - that happens. Sometimes it isn't just about the pounds. Sometimes it's about how we feel. Unfortunately you are going through a difficult time right now. I'll say a pray for you. Those turkey dinners always do it, for me it's the mashed potatos and gravy....I'd rather have that then cake or pie. It is good that you have something else to keep you occupied (red hats). I don't belong to a group but I hear they can be very supportive....=

It took some time but I have finally lost a little bit of weight, now the hard part is keeping it off. I am doing so good at keeping on track that it has to come off more and stay off. I was so pleased with myself. Feeling really good for over 1 week now, so good that I really feel like a new person.
Still getting up a few times to pee in the night,but hey if I am loosing a bit of weight thats fine with me.
I am going to say it to myself 'WELL DONE LYNNE"
Time for my walk, the sun is shining but still a little chilly but that's fine. Take an apple with me better not take water or I will need another

I have been very good to myself today, kept on track with both food and water. Going to give myself a pat on the back.
Weather has been really nice and the dog and I had a good walk.
Also did my excercise.
Cannot wait for all this work to pay off and loose a few lbs.
Going to keep off the scales until Monday....hopefully.
