    Oh my gosh how wonderful!! I am so proud of you! Now, I want you to go buy a size 16 (not 16W) and hang it on your wall, and in a few weeks or once a month, try them on and keep doing that until they fit. There is nothing so amazing as stepping out of those women's sizes and into regular ladies sizes. I was thrilled.

Masala Bhangra : )

Friday, July 25, 2008


Masala Bhagra dance is a traditonal indian celebration dance Sarina Jain has a series she does on FitTv, im learning how to do it and im enjoying it, i have so much fun its hard to believe im working out as hard as i am till the ache and burn hits later in my muscles.
My son and his cousin join me at home, its a good way to get them tired out for the evening.
Try it ladies if you enjoy dancing and each session burns more than 500 calories.Im really not trying to sound like an infomercial LOL, but i was getting bored with my workouts and I wanted to share something that worked for me.

219 finally !!!!!

Thursday, July 24, 2008

After half a week, of doing vacation bible school at my favorite church,I thought I wasnt getting any excercize in at home, boy was i wrong watching a dozen four year olds is a workout.we have gym and we chase the younguns around outside, they love that and i wasnt home to raid the kitchen when the hunger pangs set in so i had to drink water to suffice.
Thank you god for providng this opportunity to enrich these young ones lives, and for them to get me very active to break this mental and physical plateau, I knew I was there to help them but i never knew they will help me in the end!!My sadness and lonlyness is gone unfortunately this schooling only lasts a week.I will miss those precious preschoolers ; (

Feeling a bit down.... :(

Wednesday, July 09, 2008

I feel as though my depression is slipping in again...Or I could be feeling the effects of being a stay at home mom, Im starting to feel isolated, and lonely.
Im down to 220 now, but I am starting to loose that zest sometimes. usually when I do my daily walk i do it by myself with the children and I miss having adult companionship, someone to talk to and relate to, all the girls around my age in this area are only interested in drinking and partying, i gave that up when I got Saved a couple years back and started a family .I stand outside of them now because I am literally a 45 year old in a 23 year old body.
Ive grown and they want to be children forever, letting thier parents raise thier kids while they party and goof around almost being a sibling to thier own babies.Once I knew my first baby was in my womb I grew up and stopped being selfish.
They dont like the new mature me, the one who doesnt social drink anymore, I still like to make jokes and still a lil adventerous and mischieveious.I know if i start drinking again ill never stop, because it feels good to get so buzzed you almost forget the pain that life hands you, but then I cause much pain becasue of the things I say and do when im drunk.Its in my blood to be an alcoholic and I dont want that for my children.
Why cant they understand it??Ive lost alot of "friends" due to my new goodie two shoeness, they love the old me, the one who drank to hide sadness and was always happy all the time.
II spend sunday mornings in church while they are overcoming hangovers .Im physically alone now due to my faith in Jesus, and my hunger for the knowledge of the Word.Spiritually no im not alone, god and jesus are there for me.
The best friends I have now that are always there for me are from this site SparkPeople, they understand the struggles and pain ive went through to get healthy, being skinny is not the only end result i want.Being healthy is the main goal.Some days I feel so excited and invigorated other days not as much.
This is just one of those days where im feeling a little down , hey it happens. i wouldnt change my life I love my babies, if it wasnt for them i would be in a Rehab unit somewhere, because that was the only way I knew how to handle stress.Playing with my children is good therapy, they are the whole reason why I wanted to get healthy to begin with, they are my miracles, and i feel so blessed with them.

    I know you are probably depressed because you are alone without adult companionship. I have been the same way. We have lived where we are for 4 years and I have 2 friends that I didn't even have 6mths ago. So I can totally relate. Hang in there, it will get better and you will meet new friends that will be there with you in your faith.

    Oh hun! I am proud of you for being the great mom and Christian. It is hard sometimes but you have made such a wonderful choice. You can do it. Smile because you have battled the battle they still have waiting for them. Is it real friendship if they are only your friend if you drink. Nope. You have made a strong and wise choice! Smile and know you are not alone, you are strong, wonderful and God is with you. Hugs!

    Hello fellow sister in the Lord! You are not alone! I can so relate to your story and I am sure I didn't come in contact with you by accident! I mean, I found your blog on the witches, demons oh my page! LOL How odd is that? I was searching for a way to share my faith, and lo and behold, somehow I am drawn to your blog! COINCIDENCE? I think not! More like divine connection!
Your story of aloneness is very similar to mine. I too lost alot, if not all of my old friends!
You can do this! God has a purpose for you! Your transition into isolation is for His divine purpose--which usually is for intimacy with Him to grow you, strengthen you, speak to you, teach you and guide you into your life purpose! Get excited! Get ready! This is an opportunity for you and Jesus to hear the Father whisper and pour out His unfailing love for you!

    Now I don't know your situation, small town; big city? Time to take steps to make new friends, ones that share your values. Start with your church. Do they have a class or what we used to call "time out". It would be once a week, mothers and their childern would get together, some would volunteer to babysit (I think we took turns) then the rest would do a craft or listen to a guest speaker or learn about a different topic. No idea what they are called now. Maybe if your church doesn't have one you could start one, there maybe other stay at home moms that need the adult conversation too.
Take care
