Thank you doesn't seem adequate

Monday, March 03, 2014

A few days ago I asked for help praying for my sister and boy, did I get it!!!. I'm overwhelmed with the kindness that was shown and will be forever grateful. This is truly an amazing place to be - we can ask for and get any kind of help we need. Spark People are the most wonderful people and I'm grateful for all the help I've gotten. I simply can't thank everyone enough!!

My sister is slowly recovering - luckily she underwent laproscopic surgery so should be able to go home after she puts a few pounds on.

Thanks again for all your prayers, hugs and well wishes. You're all the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Glad to hear your sister is on the road to recovery....I hope she can get out of the hospital soon & recover at home.

Hope you didn't get any snow last night/today. My parents in northern NJ got nothing, luckily! We also got nothing here in Boston :)

Please help me pray for my sister

Friday, February 28, 2014

3 years ago my sister had her esophagus & 2/3 of her stomach removed due to cancer. Yesterday she had cysts removed from 1 lung. To make matters worse - she's 5'8" and weighs 70 lbs. I'm not much of a talker, don't share much with others. I basically keep to myself but this time I'm reaching out. My Sis & I have never been terribly close - our mother used to always say " will you two ever stop fighting "? - but we love each other dearly strange as that sounds. I'm thinking she'll be fine after all is said and done - she's too ornary to go anywhere ( lol ) . Thanks in advance for your support!!!

    Such a hard, hard situation she is in! Her height/weight says a lot without the details... My prayers are definitely being sent in her direction. And also yours.

    My son was stationed there for 3 years until August last year. He is at Kill Devil Hills, NC now - they had snow on the beach this year.

I love Maxine - some of my friends say we are a lot alike.

Sugar and me

Friday, February 21, 2014

It's time for me to evaluate my love of sugar. It's everywhere and I love it ( too much ). I try hard to omit the obvious - cake, pies, cookies, cupcakes - but they seem to call my name. My DH doesn't have a weight issue so he always has sweets on hand which I raid often. To make matters worse, I really don't like fruit very much which of course is a much better choice. Wish me luck as I try to conquer this dilemma!!!

    I too love sugar. You just have to try different things until you find something to take it's place. emoticon

    I love ice cream. It is my greatness weakness and my biggest temptation. I also don't eat 1/2 cup. But I also love fruit, especially strawberries. It is a challenge to not eat things we really enjoy but I'm trying for portion control instead of none at all.

The best advice I got was to eat slowly and pay attention to eating and not anything else to feel satisfied with less.

    That's a tough one. I keep no sugar in the house, but it sneaks in various food products.

Perhaps it's something you can do gradually?

Good luck!

    Like you, I'll take a cookie over fruit ANY day! I've tried to approach this through moderation and some smart substitutions - maybe only 2 cookies, or making my cake with unsweetened applesauce instead of oil and leaving frosting off the portion I intend to eat. If I'm going to stick with a healthy lifestyle it needs to include my dessert!

    Some people use visualization to help them avoid foods that are problems for them; like imagining the calories turning into inches on your hips if you consider reaching for hubby's junk food. Or associating the food item (sugar, pie etc) with some negative image or memory...

I sort of did that when changing foods I'd WANT to eat, but I think what really helps is spending more time in the produce aisle and getting interested in healthy veggies. Focus on the POSITIVE of what you want, not the negative of what tempts you.

I absolutely do wish you luck!
