ARE WE EFFECTING SOMEONES LIVE ?

Friday, January 28, 2011

IT IS SO EASY TO SEE A MOTHER WITH A CHILD AND TELL HER HER CHILD IS CUTE OR SEE SOMEONE THAT NEEDS A HELPING HAND AND REACH IN AND OFFER IT. CALL A FRIEND THAT IS LONELY AND JUST LISTEN AND LET HER TALK, GIVE A 5 DOLLAR BOUQUET OF FLOWERS TO SOMEONE THAT HAS NEVER GOT FLOWERS ! ONE DAY WE WERE IN SUBWAY AND THE WOMAN AHEAD OF US PAID 10 DOLLARS TOWARD OUR MEAL BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO ! WE WERE FRIENDS OF HER MOMS BUT DIDN'T KNOW HER BUT WE GOT TO KNOW HER . SHE MADE OUR DAY THAT DAY ! IT WAS ONE OF THOSE WOW MOMENTS. TODAY I HAVE TO SAY I HAD A FEELING I DIDN'T LIKE AND DIDN'T REALISE IT WAS EVEN IN MY HEART BUT WHEN GOING THRU BLOGS TO READ I CAME UPON A CANCER PATIENT'S FIRST BLOG AND ALMOST PASSED IT UP ! AND I KNOW WHY BECAUSE I HAVE DEALT WITH AND STILL DEALING WITH ALOT OF CANCER IN MY FAMILY. MY MOM AND DAD DIED WITH CANCER AT 45 AND 46 AND I WAS ONLY 20 AND MY BROTHER 16. I GOT MARRIED IN MAY MY MOM DIED IN NOVERMBER AND MY BROTHER 16 COME AND LIVED WITH US TILL HE WENT OUT ON HIS OWN . I LOST A BROTHER AT 62 LAST YEAR FROM CANCER OF THE LIVER AND CANCER IS A DREADED WORD BUT WHEN I READ THAT I QUICKLY THOUGHT MAYBE I CAN HELP THIS ONE ENCOURAGE THEM TO BE HAPPY AND TO FIGHT THE BATTLE SO I CLICKED ON AND WENT TO THEIR SITE AND GAVE THEM A RAINBOW SPARKGOODIE AND INVITED THEM TO THE TEAM GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND I THOUGHT THATS WHAT GOD PUT US HERE ON EARTH FOR TO HELP AND LOVE AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS. GOD DIDN'T PROMISE US IT WOULD BE EASY ONLY HE WOULD GO WITH US . I WANT TO LIVE EVERYDAY TOUCHING SOMEONES LIFE IN A POSITIVE WAY WHEN THE LORD OPENS THE DOORS DON'T YOU? WE GET OUR TRUCK BACK TODAY MY DH CAN'T DRIVE THE CAR AT NIGHT HARDLY BECAUSE IT SITS LOW AND THE CAR LIGHTS BLIND HIM WE ARE HOPING THE TRUCK SITTING HIGHER WILL HELP. HAVE A GREAT DAY TODAY ! emoticon

ENJOY LIFE WHILE YOU CAN !

Thursday, January 27, 2011

YESTERDAY WE WENT TO SEE OUR FRIENDS THAT HE HAS CANCER. HE DOESN'T KNOW IT BUT THE CANCER IN HIS BLADDER HAS SPREAD SO THEY AREN'T GOING TO TAKE IT OUT. DON'T KNOW YET IF THEY ARE GOING TO STOP CHEMO BUT PROBABLY . SHE HAD ME TO STOP AND GET HIM SOME CASTOR OIL FOR A LAXATIVE AND I PICKED HER UP A LITTLE STUFF DUCK THAT WAS SO SOFT AND CUTE SHE PUT IT ON HER KITCHEN TABLE . SHE ALMOST CRIED AND WE HAD A GOOD VISIT TEASING RON THAT I GOT THE DUCK SO SHE WOULD FEED THE CASOR OIL TO IT INSTEAD OF HIM ! I TOLD HIM I HOPED IT WORKED. HE LAUGHED AND ENJOYED THE MOMENT . HE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CROSS HIS LEG BUT COULDN'T RAISE IT ENOUGH BECAUSE HE WAS TO WEAK . YOU KNOW WE SAT AND TALKED AND LAUGHED ABOUT THAT LITTLE DUCK AND WE TOOK HIM GOATS MILK WHICH HE LOVES AND SOMETIMES THATS ALL HE CAN GET DOWN . EVERYDAY I CALL HER AND WE TALK ABOUT RECIPES OUR WRINKLES AND DUMB STUFF AND IT REALLY TAKES THE PRESSURE OFF JUST LIKE A PRESSURE CANNER WHEN YOU LIFT THE WEIGHT UP JUST ALITTLE. WE END WITH PRAYER IN THEIR HOME AND THANK GOD WE HAD TODAY ! WE ARE ALL GONNA GO DOWN SOME ROAD MAYBE NOT THE SAME BUT DON'T LET SATIN TAKE TODAY AWAY FROM YOU EVEN IF YOU ARE BEDFAST YOU CAN LISTEN TO GOSPEL MUSIC WATCH A GOOD CLEAN MOVIE LAUGH AND LET TOMARROWS WORRIES TAKE CARE OF THEMSELF . IF THEY DON'T HAPPEN WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT - IF IT DOES GOD SAID HE WOULDN'T PUT NO MORE ON US THAN WE COULD BARE ! KEEP PRAYING FOR RON AND JEWEL I HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE BUT I DO KNOW IF I GET THERE I WANT SOMEONE TO ENCOURAGE ME TO ENJOY TODAY ! I WON'T DIE AND QUIT ENJOYING THE LITTLE THINGS THAT I CAN GET PLEASURE OUT OF TILL MY HEART STOPS ! HAVE YOU GOT THINGS IN YOUR LIFE YOU CAN'T CHANGE ? BUY A SERINITY PLAQUE AND READ IT EVERYDAY ANY CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORE HAS THEM . CAN YOU MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR YOURSELF BY CHANGING YOUR ATTITUDE AND LOOKING FOR ONLY POSITIVE THINGS? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR TIME IS WASTING ! GOD GAVE US THE TOOLS BUT HE'S NOT GOING TO MAKE US USE THEM. DAILY DEVOTIONS ARE THE ROAD MAP AND DAILY DEDICATION IS THE TICKET TO HEAVEN ! HAVE A GREAT DAY !

    We're certainly in this together! And thanks for mentioning that we are not supposed to send those types of messages, they are fun, but they do clog up the spark message boxes. So I will cease and desist as well! Hang in there, one of these days you will get on that scale and it will surprise you. It is so easy for our bodies to get into a rut....and we have to jump out of those! My Mom has said that a rut is just a grave with the ends knocked out of it! So, here's to rut-jumping!!! emoticon

NOT SURE WHERE TO GO FROM HERE !

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

GOT WEIGHTED THIS MORNING AFTER A MONTH AND WEIGHTED THE SAME AS LAST MONTH . 159 LBS. ONE TIME SINCE I BEEN ON SPARK I GOT DOWN TO 157 LBS BUT THATS BEEN AWHILE BACK. I AM DOING THE LOWEST POINTS FOR WEIGHT WATCHERS THEY WANT YOU TO DO WHICH IS 29 POINTS+ BUT THEN YOU ARE ALLOWED AN EXTRA 49 POINTS+ A WEEK IF YOU NEED THEM AND SOME WEEKS I USE A FEW MAYBE 25 AT THE MOST OF THE 49 BUT BY DOING THIS I'M NOT LOSING NOTHING . I LOST 1/2 AROUND THE WAIST AND CAN FEEL I AM LOSING IN MY LEGS ARMS AND FACE EVEN THO IT'S NOT SHOWING UP ON THE SCALES SO I AM MAKING SOME PROGRESS THAT WAY. I WOULD HAVE REALLY LIKE TO GET TO MY BMI WHICH IS 149 LBS BUT BY NOT BEING ABLE TO EXERCISE I WOULD HAVE TO CUT BACK MORE ON FOOD TO GET THERE AND I AM REALLY EATING HEALTHY AND LIKE THAT. MY DH SAYS I DON'T NEED TO LOSE ANYMORE AND WANTS ME TO HOLD IT WHERE I AM SO I AM THINKING ABOUT STAYING AT 29 POINTS+ ANOTHER MONTH AND EATING THE EXTRA IF I REALLY NEED TO UP TO 20 EXTRA POINT+ FOUND SOME OTHER THINGS AT THE GROCERY I THINK WILL HELP ! SAUSAGE LINKS 2 POINTS+ SMALL SAUSAGE SANDWICHES FOR 3.5 POINTS+ YOU'LL HAVE TO LOOK UP THE CALORIES BUT THEY WOULD BE LOW ! ALSO I LIKE BURRITO'S AND A BEEF AND BEAN BURRITO IS 8 POINTS+ SO THATS A FEW IDEAS I KNOW THERE ARE ALOT ON THIS SITE DOING WEIGHT WATCHERS SO THATS WHY I AM GIVING THE POINTS+ . I DEFINATELY DON'T WANT TO GAIN ANY OF THIS WEIGHT BACK I GET WEIGHTED ONCE A MONTH AND ALWAYS WILL. WHAT EVER YOU DO JUST FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOU NO MATTER WHERE YOUR AT LOSING WEIGHT AND DON'T BE TO HARD ON YOURSELF . emoticon

    You are doing awesome!! Isn't it great how our Hubbys see only the girl they married. Mine has never treated me any different when I have gained weight... which has been several times in my life ... He only encourages me to lose weight because it makes ME happy...

Keep up the good work and don't get discouraged!

    If you are losing inches, but not weight, it sounds like you are gaining muscle. I would stay where you are for another month and see what happens. If you are gaining muscle, it should burn more calories for you. You have done great without being able to exercise. As long as you don't gain this next month, it won't hurt you, and you can re-evaluate next month.

Not being able to be as active as you would like does make it harder to lose. However, if you don't listen to your body and push too soon it only delays the process. (At least that has been my experience). You have special challenges, but working through them will make you stronger. I don't use the points program but the old initial exchange plan so I can't offer any useful suggestions. I do know that you can tweak your nutrition until you find what works best for you. Even small amounts of movement are effective, and they can be just simple
daily activities. Be patient, and hydrate well. Do what works for you, this may stimulate your creativity a bit, but being healthy and feeling good physically, emotionally and spiritually, are what we seek. Quality of life. You are blessed to have the support of your husband.
I wish you the best as you seek ways to better your health.

    I know it's hard when you can't exercise like you want to.
YOU ARE DOING FANTASTIC though. COngrats on where you are
and mantaining it. Can you do a one on one with your WW host and see if they have any tips for you if you did decide to cut back more?

You're doing GREAT emoticon emoticon

LOVE your bird!

    It sounds as if you are at a good place. If you do want to lose a few moew pounds, always remember and never forget that the losing goes slower the closer to goal. That wonderful first week when it is possible to lose 5 pounds or more depending how overweight you are is not the same as that last pound that leaves you ever so slowly. Hang in there and pray over it. Maybe God agrees with your DH and where you are is just right. Hugs, Marcia
