I haven't added to my blogs due to my extreme fatigue and tiredness. Each day it seemed like a chore just to put one foot in front of the other. Moving from my bed to my computer chair was a big chore---some days I didn't even want to do that.
After 3 Vit. B 12 injections, I am feeling 80 to 90% human again. I am getting up and doing things as the heat will allow. I have even been hanging out my clothes to dry and taking DJ for walks.
This week I only went down 2/10th of a pound but as it was so graciously pointed out to me it is down and not up. Thank you God for the encouragements of these special people. I hope to soon be back into some quilting---haven't quite gotten that far yet.
My daughter, grandkids, and I have been visiting a different church that we may join. It has many more programs going that the one I currently belong to. Also, we would get to meet a lot more people and I would get out of the house more. I am sort of stagnated right now. Of course the fatigue didn't help either.
I have been consuming lots of fresh veggies this past 2 weeks---tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon, and onions. Been making salads with fat free Italian dressings and a little olive oil.
Thank you Lord for caring for me and please, pretty please..could we have some nice gentle rain?

1. PAUSE: are you hungry? how hungry are you? what are you hungry for?
2. THINK: how do you want to feel when you are done?
3. RELAX: give yourself the time to enjoy your snack or meal mindfully. you'll feel more satisfied with less food
4. SAVOR: make eating a multisensory experience. notice the appearance, aromas, textures, and flavors
5. SAVOR: take one small bite at a time. chew slowly
6. ENJOY: enjoy the setting, the company, and the occasion---even if it's only a short break!

I don't wanna:
1. get up and move-----can't somebody do it for me???
2. wait for this weight to come off-------what happened to the Poleroid company---poof and it was done---instant---where's the magician----abbra cadabra it's gone.....
3. do it myself-----what can't someone do this for me? --------sure would be easier
I know, I know--we weren't promised easy just that God will guide us through everything and boy do I want and need His guideance. I just don't understand how people can say thereisn't a God when all they have to do is look around them. I am so thankful God takes such good care of me. He does provide all my needs-----not always all my wants but then I want a lot....LOL I want easy and no work.......hehehe

For some reason, I seem to be very tired this evening. I had a fun learning day. I went to a quilt class where i practiced some techniques I had learned at an earlier class. Also, I learned some new free hand quilting. It was so much fun. If she has the class again I will take it. Somewhere along the line, I have lost my incentive to quilt. I really need to work on getting this back as I do enjoy quilting even though I am a very basic beginner. I have started 4 quilts but haven't finished any of them. Two of them have been packed away for over 20 years.
Slowly, I am renewing my interest in doing this. I should make quilts for Christmas.........the key word here is "should"......hehehe
My main problem is once I sit down at this computer, i don't get up much.....
Will be up from it Monday as the lawn needs mowing again and I need to get outside.....

Although I don't care for Dr. Phil, he does have some very good quotes----one being "How's that working for you?"...Apparently it isn't or this weight would be dropping off. So if what I stubbornly hang on to doesn't work, why don't I change it? Am I just too lazy to put forth the effort? Deep down, do I really want to lose this weight? Why do I continue to ride the down a pound/up a pound roller coaster? Do I have enough energy and motivation to do this for the long run? What do I see in the future? These are some of my questions I will be dealing with over the next year or so.
Question 1. How's that working for you?
It isn't so why don't I change some things? This I don't know------I get set into a rut and don't want to dig myself out. Not a pity rut or an I don't care rut, just a all is familiar rut. Most of my life has been spent doing what other people have told or instructed me to do. For the past 6 years (hubby passed away in 2004), I haven't had to answer to anyone but myself---I like this. I am not ready to give up this notion. I still haven't wrapped my mind around making good food choices. My main problem is moderation. When I find or see something I like I go way overboard with it---not good on a food plan ( not a diet but a food plan). I don't make menus because I don't seem to be able to or want to make food choices for a week at a time---I like the sponteanaity of deciding each day. If someone calls and wants to go out--I g--not always good choices at small mom & pop cafés. I do fairly well at buffets because I stick to the vegetables and fish. I don't eat deep fried hardly at all anymore because it makes me sick. I can't tolerate much grease anymore. My biggest problem isn't what I eat it is how much I eat, which is way too much. So why don't I cut down? I don't know----I use small dishes and eat with a salad fork so if or when I go back for more it is less that what I used to eat.
Problem number 2---getting up and moving
I know this is good for me so why don't I do it? I start out each morning with resolve---that's as far as it goes---resolve. I get up early each day and start posting here and there and before I know it it's 3 or 4 PM and I haven't hardly moved. Then I'm still and sore and I don't want to move...next day I'm on the same train...esp in the cold, wind, rain or heat...I don't like schedules so that won't work because I won't stick to it---no reason for not following one I just know I wouldn't.
