saw an old friend today

Friday, March 04, 2011

I was walking on the path and sat down to tie my shoe.When i looked up i recognized the name of a dear friend "in loving memory"A pain so sharp i could hardly breathe hit me and i barely held in the tears. She never wanted anyone to cry.goodbye friend!

    Wow. This is almost too much to believe. There must have been some reason why you sat down on that very bench. Do you pass by it every day? Anyhow, very sorry about the sadness and losing your friend. Maybe you can think of her being with you - in a different way - on all of your walks?

Sorry to read of your loss. The fact that you remembered & honored her wish that people not cry shows that she meant something, she will not be forgotten and people like you are striving for more, because of her.

    Sounds like you had a great day...

I can barely get my teenager to turn off her MP3 player long enough to listen to me, let alone to walk or 'GASP' go out in public with me...

walking group

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I recently inspired a few people that saw me walking my usual route.They started waiting for me and would come out and walk with me.3 people turned into 13 and now 18!One young lady told me she's been wanting to tell me how much she wanted to lose weight and saw me "MELTING" I laughed and told her the only secret i have is its never too late,TOO LATE IS DEATH,she hugged me with tears in her eyes and said Can i start today walking with ya'll? We waited while she changed clothes and kept at a slow pace until she adjusts. I live about 3 miles from that neighborhood but have made friends.An old guy has given me summer veggies(we have a big garden)we give him potatoes.I'm on a quest to invite as many that wants to come along.

    That's awesome! What a great thing to have so many be inspired by you and want to be a part. I would love to find people that would walk and motivate me. Maybe I just need to set out on my own and see if anyone joins me.
Keep up the good work! emoticon

Naughty friend

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

I have this friend that i know cares deeply about me.SO why does she stop doing right and tries to poopoo on everything i do?It's like "well ive quit exercising and dieting,you should too" Then when i give her a LOOK she jokes her way out of it!Yesterday,I wanted to walk on this wonderful walking trail i like and she offered to drive me.We walked all the way around and she says I need donuts!she proceeded to stick the donut in my face and taunt me.So i grabbed it and threw it out the window...She is A N G R Y at me now!hahaha and i dont care!!! She needs to respect me i would never do that to her!!

  Sometimes a positive change in our lives makes our friends/family members take a more critical look at theirs. Don't let her get to you. I have a mother in law that has yo yo dieted all of her life and she giggles when I eat something she perceives as "bad" and tells me I'm "being naughty". I have had to remind her that I'm 44, the mother of 3 and long past the "naughty" stage. I also tell her that no foods are off limits to me, that I can eat what I choose to eat, as long as I track it. I had birthday cake on Sunday and she was very critical about the size of piece I had. She didn't know, nor did she NEED to know, that I had burned over 500 calories in my work-out, plus whatever I burned cleaning the garage, vacuuming and washing 2 cars and cleaning my house that morning.

I tell my children to "get glad in the same pants they got mad in", so I guess this applies to your friend!
