1 year anniversary on sparkpeople !

Saturday, December 04, 2010

I want to take this time to say thank you to Chris and the whole sparkpeople staff for helping me this whole year. There is no doubt about it you are a God sent ! I have been here on the site everyday but the days our electric was out in our home. I want to thank all the sparkpeople friends that has continued reading my blogs and dropping in on my sparkpage and encouraging me to keep trying don't give up. I have lost 30 lbs my cholestrol has went from 255 to 199 . I am able to sleep on 2 pillows instead of 3 and most of the time i don't need a fan to catch my breath where i was using one about everytime i lay down. I have tried several times to do 10 minute walking in the house or stretching but my health won't let me so i quit trying that. When i found this site i was depressed alot because of not being able to do much of anything without wearing out but now when i get down i get on site and reach out to a friend on sparkpeople that maybe lost 2-3 lbs this week and has 100 lbs to go and very thankful to have lost the 2-3 lbs. I can go to her sparkpage and send her a sparkgoodie maybe a hug or a cup of tea . I feel like i am being of a help to someone that has the same struggles as i do in life. I have learned what to eat why i eat the wrong things sometimes and how to keep from doing that! This has been a great year for me and i feel next year will be better because that on thats 100 lbs overweight i can watch her succeed day by day as i to try to accomplish my goals in the year to come. My main goal in life is same as last year to get closer to the Lord by spending more time in prayer and studing his word and i would like to lose my last 10 lbs and help as many as i can along the way. The hours i have spent on this site has molded me into a better Christian a better friend and has help me to realise i can do this ! THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART ! Your sparkfriend ,VICKIE
PS. REMEMBER I AM HERE DAILY FOR ANYONE I CAN HELP IN ANYWAY ! emoticon emoticon emoticon

DH OUT HUNTING BAMBI-BAMBI'S DAD MOM BROTHERS OR SISTERS!

Friday, December 03, 2010

DH left at 5 this morning he come in yesterday because nothing was moving but maybe he will have better luck today ! I don't know if he will be doing this next year if his health permits or not he is not a man of patience and sitting still is not his virtue he has enjoyed the hunting season this year tho i thank the Lord he could do it ! Working on the new weightwatcher pointplus program i am trying to do away with the tv dinners all together but i need some dinner meats with the nutitional info for the protein,carbs,fats and fiber in a serving and how many servings if i could get 3-4 different kind of meat recipes i think i could take it from there without the tv dinners. I can figure breakfast lunch and snacks it's mainly dinner meat i am lost on ! I would appreciate any help i could get ! Eating an egg sandwich with provolone cheese and honey mustard on toast right now for breakfast it hit the spot! Well got to go if i get real energetic today i might do a couple loads of cloths i know i got to give my bird cages a good cleaning and sparky (thats my beta) needs his bowl cleaned to . Have a great day and keep up the good work ! emoticon emoticon

    Do you have a food scale? I have found that helps figure out the nutritional value of food. My MIL gave me one for my birthday last year that is programmed with the nutritional value of a lot of food, also once you put it in the food tracker on here, you have the value also. Still praying your DH gets his deer.

DH off hunting at 5;30 am !

Thursday, December 02, 2010

Wow i got up at 3;45 to get DH breakfast and i can see him losing his enthusiasm. He's got 3 days to get this deer ! emoticon Yesterday he had to come home about 12 in the afternoon because his back hurt so bad he couldn't sit out . Hopefully he will get Bambi today ! Started the new pointsplus program yesterday this is day 2. I took all my foodtracker logins out and replacing them with points instead of calories so thats a job! Gonna be alone today and i like being able to work on the computer at a leasure speed but i sure miss DH. Besides when he has been in the hospital over the 39 years in may or if i was we haven't been apart only when he goes hunting. Fuzzy his dog lays on his old coat and watches out the window all day for him , he doesn't play at all. Gonna study my food plan today and put out some christmas decorations . Have a great day ! emoticon

WENT WITH THE NEW WEIGHT WATCHER PLAN !

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

I went to the weight watcher meeting last night and ended up buying the deluxe kit because you got 20 dollars worth of coupons in it but it was 42.33 with tax but it helps that i am a lifetime member and don't have to pay ! SPARKPEOPLE is my main thing that has help me to lose this first 30 lbs this year ! I like weightwatchers but you got all the support at your fingertips here . I have done them all because of my health issues but i love sparkpeople the most and weightwatchers for guidance ! Dh went deer hunting at 5 am this morning. He didn't get to go yesterday it was pooring down the rain all day off and on. Pray for his safety and that the Lord will let him get a deer this year. It's one of those lifetime goals but if he don't get one he got a shot at one the other day and missed ! emoticon but that's ok to he is having fun. Paul says in the scripture whatsoever state i am in i have learned to be satisfied ! I do my best not to complain about anything the worlds out there watching us and needs to see a peculiar people and being satisfied with what life gives you is peculiar and i know God is happy with us when we are like that! Have a good day and don't give up. emoticon

    I did hear something about the new WW plan, it sounds good. I've never done WW but I use to go to TOPS. Now I stick to SP.

Praying your DH stays safe and gets his deer.
God Bless!

Got discission to make !

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Tonight i go to weight watchers tonight and i am really confused. I thought about not going back because they changed their program to pointsplus and i havent done good the last two months counting points but last month i did take in more than 18 points a day and gained 2 lbs and this month on 18 points i loss the 2 lbs i gained but let me tell you the 18 points isn't much food at all. My DH is encouraging me to try the new program even tho the deluxe kit with the points counter is 35 dollars he said if i could lose the other 10 lbs it would be worth it. He is a sweet heart he doesn't care what i weigh is just concerned with my health . On sparkpeople Dec 4th i will be here a year and have loved it. I have lost 32 lbs which adverages a little over 1/2 lb a week but i haven't been perfect i am human. But with not being able to exercise and taking thyroid pills and 5-6 heart pills and other meds i am very happy with that. So i am going to pray about it and make a discission tonight if i want to try this program to finish my weight loss challenge ! emoticon emoticon

    You have really done very good with all the adversities that are facing you. I cannot make the decision for you but, I know that the leading of Holy Spirit will lead you into all the truth of this situation and will show you things to come, so, I know you are in good hands of our Father God. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is certainly a decision that you must make, not one that anyone else can really say is best for you. You are wise to seek God's answer, and a great witness by posting this. He will show you the right path for you to take.
