I now can talk about it Life has amusing turns

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Hi All

I have had a roller coaster ride of life. I am not going to get in details now. I will start to share this new path I am on.

I pray and I have made a decision to show gratitude and acknowledge everyone I meet who shows me kindness, caring, patience, and a smile.

When I do food shopping I ask one request to the cashier, I ask that the cashier smiles while they are placing my food over the scanner. Why I tell them that when they smile all the love they have within the heart flows to my food. What a big smile I get.

I have a lady in the bakery give me a hug and with tears in her eyes she thanked me stating she needed to hear some cares.

So even though my path has changed I am keeping my head up and taking all the good God has given me and sharing it every chance I get.

Have a great week all It feels good to share again

Janet emoticon

I am finding comfort in overeating. This stops NOW!!!!!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I ate way more than I should. I feel like I deserve the extra food I am enjoying my self by overeating,.

I now will enjoy myself for what is within my food tracker.

I had a great time today however this was one day out of many.

I will get back on track tomorrow. I just don't know where that is coming from.

I am going to stay present and mindful of what I am eating. Sometimes I just want to space out.

I am going to find a hobby I can do to focus my attention on the hobby not the food.

If anyone has some ideas please let me know.

Thank you all my that support and nice comments. I will continue to do my best.

    Knitting would be good if you know how. Me, I try to read and not go near the fridge. Works some of the time. I am bad on Sunday night, then I try very hard to work it off with exercise the next 5 days.
Just keep pushing, emoticon
have a great evening

    Some times it is ok to eat. I am also having little problem with my sweet tooth since 2 week. But once in a week is ok so no worries. I am sure you are back on track today.

Good Luck and Have a wonderful day & rest of the week emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon You are realizing this and can stop it now. You have other things in your life that are a source of comfort. May you find comfort in the love that surrounds you, in God who loves you and in your own self-assurance and self-acceptance, that says that you are wonderful and beautiful and loved just the way you are. Whatever is stressing you is temporary. Keep taking care of that beautiful temple of yours. You have the power. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    As children I think we're trained to eat for comfort... How often do you see a crying child given something to eat? It's a hard habit to break, but you can do it!

    We are never done with parenting. I hope that charcot food does get better. Can your son exercise that foot at all so that he can stimulate the muscles. May God keep giving you energy to do what you have to do.
God bless.

DH and I have our Home back

Sunday, August 26, 2012

With all the visitors , which we enjoyed greatly, have left. This is the first time we have had all of our adult children visit in one month.

Now everyone is gone except my granddaughter who is 23 she did not like the south. She said she just needed a place to thing about her the path she wants to take. I wish I had that chance at 23, by then I had a 7 year old yes I was a teen age mother, her mother to be exact.

God is so good. he has take such good care of me and my family.

My health is the same I always feel like I am in a car moving even when I am walking.

I still have my independence. DH is great if I didn't ask for help he allows me to live my day as I feel.

Thank you my spark friends I appreciate your support and kind words of encouragement.

Have a great week

    Glad that you had a wonderful visit with the children. They are a blessing.
These days the young generation has time to really plan and focus on themselves. It is progress.
You keep doing what you have to do to remain healthy.

I picked up my Medical supplies today

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Well I broke down and accepted I have an illness (MS) and I need as much help as possible.

So I have a shower chair so when I feel the world is spinning I have a chair in the shower.

I have a walker with a seat my husband has one also and we are going to a walking trail with our our walkers and we will walk and seat when we are tired. emoticon

I have a 4 prone cane this helps me when I am walking to the dr's office and shopping stores and I feel like I am walking up the side of a steep mountain I have the support of the cane to stabilize me.

I want to maintain as much of my independent has possible. I rather lean on a device the anyone when and if that time comes it is ok

When the student is ready the teacher will appear. My illness it my teacher and I am learning a lot about what kind of person I am and taking care of Janet is most important focus right now.

I am doing well with my food choices and exercise to the best of my ability.

Just a update on what is going on with me.

Thank you my emoticons
