Daddy's trip to doctor

Monday, June 10, 2013

Well, Daddy had another Dr. appt this morning. with Dr Chambers - she is an oncologist. Daddy has small cell lung cancer and they are deciding whether or not to do radiation at the same time as the chemo. He has already had one chemo treatment at Roanoke, but now he is back in Princeton and the 18th it will be time for his second round of chemo. We have already been to the radiation dr.....Dr Bisden. He is coordinating with Dr Chambers. Now Dr Chambers wants a PET scan...that's the only test they did not do in Roanoke....that will determine whether or not radiation is done at the same time or not. Wish us luck - we already thought we knew what was going to happen and they just sprung this on us today (The PET scan and radiation maybe changing).

I am doing pretty good not letting it affect my eating plan and workouts...I just finished working out today after I got Daddy home and my nutrition is right on track.

    Will keep you and your daddy in my prayers - I know how stressful a parent's illness can be - both of mine are now gone and I worry over my stepmother like a mother hen. It can be really tough when you don't have much control over the events surrounding their health. You are doing great if you can stay on track because my doctors have told me for years and years that the secret to staying HEALTHY myself is to never let myself get TOO - tired, stressed, hungry, lazy -, upset, worried or fill in whatever adjectives you like - just try to stay balanced as much as I can. That really means take care of YOU and I am glad you ARE doing just that.

wow - 5 years since my last blog

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Been away for a while now - but have been logging my food for about 6 months...I completely forgot about my spark page and putting something in my blog! I just reread my last blog where I mentioned having a baby. My husband and I have decided that a child is simply not in the cards for us and we are happy being childfree. That being said, I am not happy being so large, and have made multiple changes in my life.
First of all I quit smoking!!!! I quit February 22, 2013. And I didn't even gain any weight! I have been losing weight due to having to go on a strict new eating plan for my diabetes. I must stay low carb now since carbs sharply raise my blood sugar. I don't say diet because it isn't a diet - it is a new way of life for me that I must follow to stay healthy.
I have just started to exercise. I couldn't do conventional exercises and had just about given up hope when I found the chair exercises on Spark People! The are making me feel so good that sometimes I work out twice a day!

Gosh it's been awhile

Monday, February 11, 2008

Well, I went so far off track I had to call in the blood hounds to find it again. I had to quit work because of my health and also had to quit walking...but of course I didn't quit eating so I just got bigger, and bigger, oh and yeah BIGGER. Of course that just makes my health problems that much WORSE! But all is not lost. I've rejoined TOPS...they were a huge help to me the first time I did this (lost 74 pounds then) So I'm hoping that they along with Sparkpeople can give me the motivation I need to do this. Along with my main motivation of I would really like to have a baby and at 37 years old I don't have many years left to try and at 417 pounds - trying is out of the question. (especially with my meds)

Well, where did I go wrong. I don't even know how to do this anymore....I've been sick this year and have gained about 20 pounds since Feb....I need help so bad.

  Girl, calm down! Don't be so hard on yourself. It's easy to gain weight when you're sick. My main concern is making better food choices more consistently. Once I'm down with that, then I'll get started with a workout plan. And if you wanna be workout buddies, I'm totally down for that!

    Okay, first of all stop and take a breath. Today is going to be the first day of the rest of your life. What kind of fitness program are you doing? Are you following it closely? The people who have the most success here at Spark are those who follow their fitness program RELIGIOUSLY! :) Second, take stock in what you think your problems are. Are you eating too much? What are you eating too much of? Are you snacking on junk food? How can you eliminate the junk food? Are you getting your exercise? If not, why not? How can you put exercise back in your schedule? -- Just take a good long look at your plan, and see what's not working for you. That's what you need to fix. If you don't HAVE a plan, well girl you need to CREATE one! :) You CAN do this!! It just takes planning and perseverence.
