Eight More Pounds

Friday, April 16, 2010

Eight more pounds and I will have lost 100 pounds. My seizures are gone for now. I have a little bit of movement in my right arm. Not much, but I can move it more than before. The same with my leg. I have a little more movement than I did before. My blood sugars are doing better. My hair is even growing again. I feel better physically and mentally, I feel better about myself. I have two grown children who are very proud of me. Sparkpeople has really encouraged me for the last 16 months. After I meet this goal of losing 100 lbs., then I will take on my 2nd goal of losing another 100lbs.
I'm looking forward to meeting more people on Sparkpeople.

hello Sharon,

Can't remember how I reached you page (been surfing on SP)but I'm so pleased to meet you and to read this blog. It's wonderful to read about your determination to struggle out of your present situation and to know you are now getting unexpected health improvements because of your healthy eating, is awesome.
Doctors are not God; they cannot know everything about every medical condition. Sharon, continue to prove them wrong.

Let's be Sparkfriends so that we can cheer each other on. I'll never have a better motivator than you, Sharon, though I realise it might be too much hard work for you to have more Sparkfriends.

Yours is the most amazing blog I've ever read. You are one gutsy lady. Well done. Keep up the good work.

byeeeeee.

    Sharon, do not even try to take less food then you need. It will fight you back. When my doc told me I have to use diet I took it very good, I started to do what he gave me to eat. I started to gain weight. It is very difficult to deal with weight and diabetes. Take water. If you can take vitamins. Really I did not lose weight even I use to go to bally club, work out and eat healthy. it is not so easy. Try to relax, do not take it very hard to lose.

    I am with you. I cannot lose anything, either, and have diabetes. I am taking metformin, which is supposed to also help you lose weight and a BP med. I guess we just have to keep on trying. I have trouble getting up to the 1200 calories a day, too. I hope you have things go better for you soon. emoticon

    You do know I am diabetic too. It is our diabetes why do we gain. Take all your pills or insulin. I am not insulin dependent I am insulin resistant. With peels I stopped to gain, but I started to lose only with TAIslim. I wish you do not get very upset. Just take it easy.
Gos Bless You.
I wish I help, but I cannot.

    Hang in there. I had the same thing happen to me this week. Just know you are doing good and that if you keep doing good you will see the results. It will happen. That doc that told you that you couldn't lose weight is a chump. You can do it..

Inches

Thursday, July 02, 2009

If you are not losing weight, don't get discouraged. You may be losing inches. Take notice and see if things are different. Maybe your clothes fit differently or you can sit in a chair you couldn't before. I thought I wasn't losing weight any more, but then I began to notice things were different. My clothes are looser now, and I can fasten things that wouldn't fasten before. Good luck to you on your journey.
God Bless, Spunky521/Sharon

    You are right. It is not the case that pounds go away. It can be inches, or you just feel better as it in my case.
I am glad you are good, I hope you will make it. Best.NS.
I put new photos. It is not really good, but I tried. It is July 4 in NYC. Check it up if you wish.
