Six Months

Sunday, March 27, 2011

I made a committment to myself yesterday to start over. I am going to make an inspiration board that will sit on the back of my desk with things to remind me how great I am and how great my life is.

Six months from yesterday will be September 26th and it will be our 47th anniversary. I want it to be our healthiest one yet.

I will take a picture of my inspiration board when it is finished and post it on my page.

Adin (my 7 year old grandson) made a book for me for my birthday. He filled it with pictures and stickers and on one page he drew a jar and filled it with kisses. He told me whenever I needed a kiss from him and he wasn't here I could take one from the jar.

Last night on SKYPE he held up a small heart shaped key chain that you can squeeze and it lights up. I had given it to him and told him when he wanted a hug or kiss he could squeeze it and get one from me.

I'll write more later because we are getting ready to leave for Disney where we are meeting Joyce (JHopper) and Kathy (Waterweezie).

    Re-committing, or re-evaluating where we are on this journey is a great idea. When we've been on this journey for a long time, sometimes we lose focus of the whole picture of what we want.
Thanks for reminding me to look at the whole picture and not just the week to week weight!

A jar full of kisses...oh that is just so precious of Adin and so thoughtful of him.

Can't wait to see the photos of the three of you together...what fun that is going to be!

Christmas temptations

Saturday, December 18, 2010

This came from todays daily devotional on my team Crochet the Pounds Away.

Today's thought: Make my diet important enough to me to keep me from temptation

This is so true. I never thought of it this way before.
All of my last months actions have been very important to me. I have been very aware of what I was doing.

Just because it is Chistmas doesn't mean that I should throw all of that hard work away.

I don't want to start over on January 1st. I want to continue with what I have been working so hard on. This is my new lifestyle. It is not a diet.

I have a plan. I will be skipping my everyday treats to make way for any extras that I may wish to have during this season.

I just realized that will make way for some treats that I only have at Christmas time.

Thanks Susi for always posting these Daily Devotionals for us. I really enjoy them.

    Peggy, thanks for sharing. I have been trying to do the same. It was hard when I made all the goodies to bring to the nursing home but my prize was finally having one of the oatmeal cookies! Always been a favorite in my family.

We passed a Church on I81 in our travels today and they always seem to have interesting things on their Information Sign in front of the Church. Todays sign said

Be thankful for what you have as well as what you don't have.

Going Home

Thursday, October 21, 2010

WEll, we are getting the car packed and getting ready for our trip back to Florida starting on Saturday.
Jerrys back is improving and he drove up to Adins tonight to test it out.
Adin was 7 today and he has really changed our lives over the past seven years. Who knew that you could have so much love for one little guy. I think when I had our children there wasn't enough time in the day to know how great they were.
I will continue on my journey on my downward spiral of weight loss and hope to have you all follow me


I'm setting a goal

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Today 10/20/10 I weighed 159.6. When I started Spark People back in 2003 or so right after Adin was born I weighed 206.
He will be 7 tomorrow

My friend Mary (Mastercare) wrote a blog today that really inspired me.
I am going to set a goal.
I never paid much attention to that before but I want to weigh 149 by 1/1/11.

I am not going to start in the New Year I am going to continue my downward spiral. I am going to mix up my exercise and not do the same old thing. I am going to try new foods and new ways of doing things.
