Motivated Again!

Monday, September 09, 2013

I began Sparking in 2010 and got off to a good start and lost a good amount of weight. And then I plateaued and didn't lose anymore. But the good news is that I am losing weight again. I've lost 16 pounds in the past 3 months.

I have stopped emotionally eating. Sadly, my Mother had Alzheimer's and I was her caretaker. That was draining and she passed away last year. And my beautiful husband also died the same month. He died from cancer and by the time he found out he was only given six weeks to live and ended up going into a coma in three weeks time and he passed several days later.

My world has been turned upside down. I was married for 25 years so I grieved hard for a year and now I am more accepting of his and my mother's passing.

I suppose I don't really have anything weighing heavy on my mind anymore so I am trying to focus on myself and get my health in tip top shape. I want to lose 15 - 20 pounds more but can someone tell me what I'm supposed to do with this extra skin after losing a lot of fat? lol!

Love to all my Sparkpeople Friends! Hope to talk with you all real soon.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose one person, two is more than twice as hard. You are wise to focus on your health. It will help you get through this difficult time.

I just read that insurance will cover a tummy tuck if the excess skin is causing sores below it. I don't know if that's an option for you but you might check it out.

    I'm sorry for the loss of your husband and mother. I'm glad you're back, taking care of yourself. If you figure out what to do with the excess skin, let me know! All I can say is I notice it more on myself than on anyone else. I don't think most people are paying attention to it.

Sixty, Sassy, & Still Sparking!

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Wow! I am 60 years old now. Do I FEEL 60? Hardly. I still feel 20. I always have. But year 2012 was absolutely the worst year I've ever had. My mother recently passed from complication of Alzheimer's.

I lost my dear husband of 25 years to carcinoma lymphoma in August, 2012, and soon after I had a nervous breakdown. These past few weeks I have finally started to heal mentally. I need you, Spark People. More than ever.

This sure is turning out to be a bummer, right? lol! Trust me. Just stating the facts but the days are getting brighter, I'm counting my blessings for good friends and family, and I'm going to make these days ahead the best that I can!

Alright, fat. Do you hear me? You have LONG over-stayed your welcome.

    Such lovely friends with great big hearts wise beyond your years.

Thanks to each one of you. It's indeed a gift to empathize with other people of the world. I will take a moment to thank each of you personally because your warm wishes meant the world to me and that you took the time out of your busy day/evening to unselfishly lighten my load a bit.

Blessings one and all! I have an appt this evening but will touch base with you all tomorrow.

    I'm so sorry for your losses. I hope you do stay with Spark People because there are so many nice people here. I lost 70 pounds while in my 60's. I know you can lose whatever you like.

Enjoy your birthday. You deserve the best.

    Sorry for your losses just doesn't touch the depth of feeling involved in such major life changes. Glad to see you back, knowing SP is a great support for me and others. I'm a little slow on catching up, so stop by my page sometime to say hello!

More Ass toTell People to Kiss? lol!

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

So I gained 4 lbs over the holidays. Sigh... Not TOO bad but not good either.

But don't get too attached to me, four pounds. You're vacating these premises by the end of January. Got it? Good.

As long as I log my food and my exercise and drink lots of water I cannot go wrong. Thank you, Spark People. It's almost been one whole year since we've been going steady and I love you as much today as I did the first day I met you.

You help me be the best me I can be.

    Spark People has been awfully good to me, too. I managed to maintain my weight over the holidays, so I was really encouraged by that. I still track my food and exercise every day. I'm afraid if I quit, I'll be right back where I started.

I know you can lose those 4 pounds this month!

    Good for you!!!! I've only been on here 4 months, but I couldn't imagine getting through my day with Spark People!!!
I put on a couple pounds over the holidays and was surprised at how quickly it left once I got back into my groove....I am now even down by half a pound!!!

With A Little Help From My Friends

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Wow, you guys have really brought some great support my way! And a few tears, too. Of joy. ;)

Here at Spark People, we ALL get it. We've all been "there" or are still residing "there" and are destined to get the hell outta "there". lol!

You all said just what I needed to hear. Sammy, I will remember also how unhappy I was with 35+ more pounds on my tiny frame and what it did for my lack of self esteem. Marshastar, you've been here, too and together we are going to refuse defeat, right? We CAN do it. And CMRAND54, It's only 5 lbs, and could be worse but it's my first setback and I'm a little disappointed. Tracking my food is key as is coming to SP and doing everything the way I did in the beginning. .

I walked 3 miles yesterday and 3 miles today and just got back from the grocery with loads of healthy choices so there's no excuse to snack on junk that my family has around the house.

xoxo,
Sudie/Sudeaux
