I got word from Eleni's sister this morning that she passed away at 3:10am. She will be truly missed. I have always said she was a treasure. She was the kindest most thoughtful person I have never met. She loved with a passion. She was beautiful inside and out. She was funny and always made us smile thinking of others before herself. Even to the point of having Brianna tell us all she was going to hospice. She didn't want us to worry. She was truly a lovely person. We felt like we knew her family as well. We are now grieving for you all. Please know our prayers are with you. Remember the good times you had with her. Those are the cherished memories. And the pain and struggle that she went through is also now gone.
Eleni We will miss you.
The eating was good. But I was so busy I was not able to exercise on Saturday. However I did start out my day with God and all in all I am happy with my day. So far Sunday is going well and I have done everything I wanted. Will report more tomorrow.
Well here I am. Not exactly where I want to be or where I planned to be at this point. No excuses and no looking back. I need to start anew today. I am sorry to say that I have had a rough year and have gained a lot of my weight back. Today I have determined to be a new beginning. I know, I know, the holidays are upon us. Who starts now? But its as good a time as any and maybe I won't gain anymore during that time period.
It gets harder and harder to lose as we get older because our metabolism gets less and less. But it has gotten way out of hand. My energy level has gotten lower and I don't like it one bit.
I know I can do this. I have done it before. Before I get back to my original weight I need to nip it or throw a hammer over it.
Start out every day with my time with the Lord. He is my strength and I can't do it without His help.
Get back to the gym. I have been very lax in this lately. Heavens, I work there. I have had trouble with one foot lately with pain so I have just let it slide. I need to push through it!
Be very aware of what is going in my mouth. I want to say I will keep track of calories but I am not sure that will always happen so I will not hinder myself by saying that.
Journal my progress. That way it will be progress and not failure.
I need your support also. If every once in awhile you want to ask me how I'm doing, or if I am on track that would be great.
So here I go: onward and downward (on the scale that is) I hope to have this off by the end of April.
