sorry I haven't been on lately :(

Monday, September 05, 2011

Hi Everybody.
Sorry I haven't been keeping up with Spark. We moved and things were busy .

So here's my up date. I got another fill , I'm at 8cc's or so now. I feel more restriction , good and no so good thing, lol. I lost some but now this morning I was bk upto 300 ( on my scale) Trying not to let it bother me and keep exercising and cutting my eating down. It has been only a few weeks , this is the 2nd week after my fill so I'm gonna try to cut myself a break.
I'm just happy I didn't gain more while I was getting bk to my sweet spot( gained 5lbs about)
I'm doing my yoga everyday. Need to get on the treadmill more thou. I feel alot better when i do my yoga (yogamazing /podcast) Love it !! Hubby likes his job /been working there about 2 months. Liking the move alot ( Arlington Heights area) It's alot more lively out here and I don't get looked at for walking with a cane - it bothered me when someone would wait to hold the door for me even when I said thnx but no thnx . I know they might of done it to nice but no is no. Anyway it's alot better here, so far we're staying in the area for awhile but next yr we're moving to a town house yah!! pool ect
More room , up dated more and bk to 2 bathrooms !! Yah!! And we might have a extra bdrm for sleep overs / exercise, game rm. We always wanted that.
I can walk the doggies by myself for a block or so. Clean the house and do errands by myself. I also have been doing the grocery shopping while they r at work, hubby and daughter
So things r ok but there is room for doing better and more. I also had foot surgery so now I have metal in my bk and my ankle , lol
Had it in feb . Still heeling at least now I can do yoga.
Hope everybody is doing good with their bands . I'm so grateful for mine.
Thnx for reading

    I know what you mean. I haven't been spending time on SP either due to house construction and I have been sick too. Gained some weight back too. Glad you are enjoying your new inviroment so much. Sounds like a nice place. I hope you foot heals fast and without too much pain. Yoga is a good stress reducer and wish I could get classes again but my gym stopped doing them. I will have too look online for some podcasts now. Hugs, to you my friend and welcome back, xo Teri

it's been a few days since my stitches have been out

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

The 1st nite was really bad but since then it hasn't been too bad. I haven't been doing alot .
My daughter changed it cause my hubby can't do it , he can't handle stuff like that.

I'm glad the bone spur is gone , even with all this . it'll be healed pretty good in a few weeks.

Thanks for stopping by



Got my bone spur done Fri, feeling better finally

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

It has been long days and nites. I'm still in pain at times but mostly now it's before my med time.
The pain has gotten alot easier to deal with . I'm still on the pain meds and I will be on them for awhile but tomorrow I'm tring to cut bk if I can, if not I'll go bk to the full dose. The dr is being really understanding about my back and leg pain along with my heel .

So I went to the dr today and he changed my bandage , he looked at my heel and is really happy with how it looks , I was releived cause I was getting nervous thinking it was messed up somehow. ( I always think like that )

So I made it bk in the house , yah!! That was a fun thing to do , I have 2 steps to get in the house . Boy those steps seemed 5 ft tall, lol

So I sat on the 1st step and slide my butt bk in the kitchen and then with my hubby and my daughters help we got up , it wasn't as hard as when I got home. And I'm on the couch and not as worn out as I thought I was gonna be.

I'm trying not to go to sleep so I can sleep some tonite. My daughter lays on a mattress and I am on the couch, don't know what I would do without them ( hubby and daughter)

I don't think I have gained , hopefully I can say the same thing next week

I go bk next tues.

Thanks for stopping by

Fri. go in to get my bone spur finally taken care of

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Well it's been over 10months that I have been dealing with this pain and it's going upto my knee/leg now. So I'm happy I'm getting it done but i will be in a cast and I will not be able to put any weight on it AT ALL!! For 4-6weeks as of now.

So I just hope I don't gain , I'm gonna go my upper body exercises and workout my other leg , but not too much cause it has to hold me up, lol

At least my band dr left my band alone and he told me to come in and he'll give me a little fill so I can get bk to lossing good. I love how he understands how upset I was getting about the thought of gaining which he said I'm more likely to cause I can't exercise ect.

So I'm not going into it figuring yah I'm gonna gain or I better not gain . I'm just gonna do my best and see what happens..

So yah Fri. 9am I'll be under getting on my way to a healthier foot..

Thanks for stopping by

    Good, Val. You'll be so much happier when you can enjoy things again. Just be patient with the long recovery time. That's the way it seems to be with most foot surgeries.

hubby got that call again/ Sorry We don't need you anymore..

Monday, January 10, 2011

He got another job through a temp. place. It sounded good. It was a month of training then he would go to 2nd shift( which they had no-one there )

He asked before even taking it, if it's a temp. to hire
Oh yah it is , that's what we were told, right!

So not even a week later -- Sat. morning the call, You don't need to come in Mon.

What why?? He didn't have much to say but they didn't need you anymore..

I felt so bad for him , I know he was thinking alright they hire me I get to quit this K- Mart stock job. Don't get me wrong I'm glad he has it and so he is he , but come on a little more hrs then 15-20 a week would be great!

He is a worker and I know this is bothering him, he has always had a full- time job.

So me and my daughter talked to him and I babied him this week end. I was gonna have him put in for more jobs but we gave him the week end to come to.

So yah My poor baby needs a full time job , please any extra hopes r appericated!
I know their r ppl worst off then we r and we have each other . And we ok as far as not having to move to a smaller place so that's good but yah, here's hope to anyone looking for a job

It'll happen , hold on

thanks for reading my story

    Losing a a job is like losing a part of you famiy.I was let go after working there for 9 years. Go and get unemployment. At least that will come in. I guess the old saying take one day at a time is the one I want to say.

It sucks. That how I feel about it. Good luck in finding a new one. emoticon

    A POX on our world and our society (all facets of it) for allowing this kind of crap to continue!

Will keep you and yours in my best thoughts.....
