    NANHBH~I crave chocolate when a migraine is coming. D@NG! I WISH I WISH I WISH My brain would work and not switch off, then I would remember that silly piece of information and help myself out with DRUGS!

MOSTMOM1~I will order a greenscreen and software and I will vlog from the Star Ship Enterprise if it's the last thing I do. OH! OH! OH! My last will and testament will be done from there. BOOYAH! It's a necessity. I hafta do this or I'll die and it'll be uneventful and sad...

ELISOS~ I like that you let me know you visited with an emoticon...I wonder who visits the crazy lady....You have been counted in the poll...

WISHICOULDFLY~ I did take your words o heart and I am dreaming BIG!!!!!

ANGELWENDYMAMA~ I don't think they'll LOVE it especially since they have a hyper/random mama, but, I think they've enjoy the change of scenery for a bit. (I know I will!!)

CRYSTLE ~ I think it's one of those things they they need to see first hand. I don't think they'll all like the environment and we will leave the homeschool door open. 2/5 will still be home...possibly 3/'ll still feell ike a vacation to me. Hee hee.

TEA ~ Hee hee, she just wanted to compete with her brother. It worked out really well cuz Gigantor at the time was dragging his "Big" feet (even then) with literacy and when his little sister was giving him a run for his money it made my life smooooooth sailing. Now, that boy reads a novel a day, he LOVES reading. He owes her. I still love Glee...even with my ears plugged and my girly squeals....

KARENE10 ~ Thank you for being supportive! I liked themeal idea. He looooooves food...that's all I can say right now. Ahem.

SPOCK ~ Hi, birthday boy...any place you'd like to eat?

REEBADABEEBOOS~ Nice to "meet" you too...I'm in love with the neon...I think it need it cotton though...

SIS ~ I know, wasn't that AWESOME!!! Ya, I rock! xoxo

C.M.D. I gotta check that pinterest greenscreen out. Thank you for chatting in response, I love, LOVE your comments; I've missed you!

Lisa~ I have NO clue what's up with Spark. I just recieved my "First Blog Post Award" this week. Seriously. ?!!!!!!

    Hey Liz... I tried homeschooling my son when he was little... I pulled him out of public school at the end of his 2nd grade year... We homeschooled for the 1st semester of the 3rd grade... I LOVED emoticon it... Him... not so much... He missed his school friends & teachers(he has always managed to be the teachers pet lol)... So he went back to public school for the 2nd half of the 3rd. grade... Course the public schools here really look down on homeschooling and gave me a REALLY HARD time about homeschooling him for just a half semester... They even wanted to MAKE him repeat the 2nd grade!?! and THEY were the ones who PASSED him on to the 3rd to begin with... They said that he was behind in EVERYTHING... Which wasn't true... They put him in the HARDEST 3rd grade class thinking he would fail... LOL... At the end of the year when they took their final exams, he ACED EVERYTHING and was even on a 6th grade level in reading in the 3rd grade!?!

Oh, thought you might be interested in a DIY green screen I found on pineterest...

    I am sure that you are an emoticon teacher. At her age though I am sure it is all about the boys:) For your husbands birthday~I know you said he wants a surprise,is there something he has always wanted to do? They have race car lessons around me that you can buy. Actually,I guess you can pretty much buy any kind of "lesson" if you wanted to.....painting.....boating.....dee
p sea diving:) With his schedule that might be tough though. How about a ticket to a specific concert he likes? Really cool eatery? I like the melting pot where you fondue your entire meal. My one niece loves to be surprised,sometimes our gift is perfect,other times,not so much emoticon. I know you'll come up with something amazing:)

Audrey too.We can just edumacate each other.
Bobby--boys are extra-curricular activities. Sorry, daddio, that's the way it goes. heh heh
The orange looks awesome! The post-its look good on it.
Lots of big decisions happening your way. Your kids are gonna be great, no matter where they are. You've done an awesome job.
Yes, you might need a green screen, but they can be a pain in the butt sometimes, though. You have to have really good lighting or good editing software. Ooooh, we can video chat with each other, while we're using our green screens. heh heh
The post-it note jacket looks very 80's.
Oh, if you want to surprise Bobby--don't tell him about it ahead of time. That's just a helpful tip.

Try on the white dress and hat with the sweater and shoes. I want to see that combination. You are so right, I LOVE THE SHOES!! Are they really comfortable?
I also love the crochet hats (I need those) and both dresses. I see you rocking the white with some salmon accents, sweater, etc.

The sweater is a little mature in a good way, coverage for the glorious boobage.

I Did It For Him.

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I didnt do this to be a better wife. Im sure Spock likes that his wife is in her healthy B.M.I. She has her sass back and shes feeling fine and flirty, but, I did not do this for him.

I didnt do this to be a better mother. Im sure the children appreciate that my health has improved and that I can care for them and their needs. Im sure my ability to chase them down and if need be I can scale Gigantor is an asset. Id like to think my energy increase has been a bonus, but, really theyre kinda cursing that because now I check their chores more.

I didnt do this for my parents. My father who has passed on wouldve wanted me to take care of myself to be able to take care of his grandbabies. My mother Im sure feels the same. However, I didnt do this for them.

I didnt do this for my community to keep my health from being an impediment to the system and my fellow man.

Doing this for me because I was sick and tired of being sick and tired coming SECONDARY to...

I did this for HIM.

No lie?
Since Day One.

I'm not someone special that I get some "Get Outta Obese Range Quick Card" and leave everyone behind. I don't have a special diet. For lunch I had portion controlled Chocolate Chip Pancakes. In the beginning of this journey I was not the wife, mother, daughter, friend, neighbour, secretary, Sunday School Teacher, Trustee, Artist, Desk-Top Publisher woman that I wanted to be. I was just a 35 year old woman that was miserable.

The migraines were relentless.
I would get up from one only to be pummelled back into submission.

I asked Him, How can I be all I can be if you keep allowing this to happen to me?

How can you be all you can be without relying on me?

I rely on you, I lied.

No, you dont. You dont trust me. This is why Im allowing you to experience weakness. Hopefully, youll allow me to show you that I am strong.

I dont think so. Know what? Youre right. I dont trust you. Im afraid youll get busy with all there is to do and forget about me, find something more interesting and realize how utterly lame I am and what a huge mistake you made even wasting your precious time on pathetic me. So, before you reject me. I Sir, will reject you. Go away.

He did.

So, the migraines worsened. People prayed on my behalf, but, I refused to talk to Him. I was not going to allow myself to be vulnerable to rejection. The storms in my life were the most turbulent I had ever experienced and I wanted to take my own life to end the agony. I was sitting on my bed with the door locked and everyone was miserable and all I could think was their worlds would be so much better if I was absent from them.

Then I prayed.

I hate me and you know what?...for being the Creator of the Universe, Dude, you needed to rethink the whole Liz concept. Just sayin. This family, the air that I breathe; Im not worth this.
I love you enough to die for you. I dont make mistakes.

{Pregnant Pause}

Im ugly inside and out.
Youve been neglecting yourself. Youre actually really cute.

Im stupid.
Youre overcommitted and exhausted. You need to get back to basics.

Im a crappy wife.
No one is perfect and its not too late to improve.

Im out of control.
Youve been in control the whole time. You just didnt choose responsibly.

Its too late.
Let me decide that.

Im not man to break promises, neglect, harm, and forget you. I will never be happy to see you hurt when you try to follow me. Will you at least try to let me help you reach one goal instead of taking your life? Will you try me this time? Well just take it One Day at a Time.

I mulled over His proposition before replying with, This doesnt mean were B.F.F.s. Im really ticked about being an invalid because of the neurological thing, overwhelming feelings of being an utter failure and this all consuming loneliness with my husband gone with work. I dont like you. Ill try only because I have this weight on my heart...this nag-like feeling to at least try. You get one shot mister. One.

I did this for Him.

Look what He has done for me. He was there for me any time I turned to Him and when I didnt He gave me friends that would turn to Him on my behalf or stand by me until I remembered to do so.
One Day at a Time.

We have victory. It's already ours.
It's your turn to trust Him.
You are worth it. He doesn't make mistakes.

    Great blog! I tried time and time again to make a change. I cannot tell you how many times I dieted...ugh...the diets! This time it stuck. Why? Because of something I read. The question was posed: Are you relying on food more than you're relying on God? Are you turning to food for comfort when you should be turning to God?

I had to be honest and answer yes. It was then that I decided to change. I don't want to rely on food more than God. I haven't looked back since and all the glory and the credit goes to Him.

I have to print this out and read it often. Too often I let my own humanity get in the way. You were definitely touched by the Holy Spirit on this one.


EDIT: Whoops, no it didn't but I'll leave this comment anyway, 'cause this blog was that great!

    I love that you hear the Lord:) Thanks for sharing. It really is all for Him and you... you just did what he intended for you... You glorified HIM. I can hear Him now... "well done, good and faithful servant" He really has changed you and i'm so glad that you gave Him a chance:)You have given me much to think about and pray about and ponder. Thank you so much for that. I LOVED this blog!

for letting us listen in on your private conversation with God. What a beautiful dialogue! You have come so far. I hardly recognize the woman you are describing. Amazing what God can do with a willing heart!

    Liz I know all about how that feels and I know this blog is for you but really God spoke to me during the whole thing thanks for posting it. I mean really thank you I have been running from Him and not in a way that was helping me lose weight and its because I thought I was not worth it thanks for the reminder that we are!!

    Oh Liz, what a wonderful blog! This one is getting printed out and I'll look at it, especially when I'm in the "poor me" mode. I so need to keep trusting Him! For some reason my humanity gets in the way. Need to work on that. ;)

Thank you for so eloquently putting your thoughts into words. They are truly appreciated.
