In a bad way

Monday, February 03, 2014

been trying to come back for so long and all my health issues keep me from doing that. I've been in the hospital 3 times since last blog in July of 2013 for multiple transfusion (blood)...and 4 iron infusion. they don't know or cant find where im losing blood from. so the saga continues. Im going to try to come on if just to say hello. needless to say I've gain back everything I've lost for lack of exercise, motivation and just plain ole scared. I need to get to healthy place. and so I come here to u all to begin again. u got me thru 76 pounds before and I know we can do it again. Love you all.

Blood Tranfusion

Monday, July 15, 2013

good morning spark people family and friends today im down 7 pounds so far! emoticon those last two pounds although welcomed. Was not by choice...On Wednesday morning I was rushed to ER where they kept me from 9am till 11pm with nothing to eat. I was experiencing shortness of breath abdominal cramping, vomiting and I actually passed out on the floor. it turns out I had a 8 hemoglobin and needed a transfusion of blood. I got 2 pints was low on blood count. im still having stomach cramps. and haven't eaten but tea and clear liquids this weekend. Going to make some broth to see if it settles my stomach. they gave me pain meds and then they gave me more to counteract the pain meds that made me nauseous was awful..been relaxing all weekend and now its time to slowly get back into the swing of things...anyone want to join my lose 10 pound challenge for July follow my link!

what did u learn yesterday that can help someone else?

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

yesterday I made a breaded chicken breast sandwich for dinner, lettuce tomatoes, mayo, and cut it in half and gave the other half to my husband...cut down my calories and put him on a diet at the same time. so my suggestion to u would be if u go out to lunch or dinner eat half bring the other half home for lunch next day. or make a sandwich n share half with co-worker!!

My Heart is Broken

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Ive been MIA for a year now. had another cancer scare. im really looking into removing my breast and then getting reconstruction. this roller coaster ride every 6 months is killing me.

shortly after my scare my niece age 43 (my favorite) landed in hospital this past January and to find out she had stage 4 cancer of the hip and with further examination it happened it had spread all over her body. she passed away this last April. I was devastated ...i'm still struggling with her loss. im fighting depression. don't want to go to that dark place. so its really been hard for me to focus on anything. being an emotional eater like I am im sad to say I've gained back all my weight lost. 67 pounds :-( I could kick myself in the butt. im so angry im ready to begin again. today is my first day. I need all the encouragement I can get. Prayers needed. I am posting a new challenge to lose 10 pounds in July come and join me..i need the encouragement, the support of all my spark friends. the link is below.

    Sorry for your loss last April. It is hard to focus when you go through so much. I have had lots of difficulty when others have died or been ill. Hard to take it. I was depressed enough when my mom died (30 years ago) that I should have gone to the Dr. I will remember you in my prayers.

    I understand. It was my father's death in 2011 that derailed my weight loss efforts and made me trash my diet and exercise habits I'd just formed. Depression and anxiety are the enemies of our journey to being healthy, so please take it one day at a time.

I am glad that you are well, and that you are back with us. We all go through ups and downs, but I am here for you as a SparkFriend. You can do it; we will do it together.

    Oh, Stormy! I'm so sorry! I remember the scare you had a couple of years ago, and I know that's never easy. When I went in for my biopsy, I was terrified. Luckily it never turned into anything, but I always have anxiety when I go to gyno now.

I'm sorry for you loss. It's never easy to lose someone that you're close to, especially someone that is family.

You'll get through this, and your team will be by your side the entire way.
