I am doing well still eating good only had One sweet thing in the last week and a half and it twas Ben and Jerry's... I found out my A1c is down to 7.5 from 9.. so I guess I'm .5 points away from having my diabetes under control.. Quess never eating pastries, donuts, cakes, and soda is a good thing on loosing weight and keeping sugar under control. Ha ha I'm funny.. I never tried really hard before.. <BR> <BR> Guess I'm done yapping for now go... Sat, 23 Jun 2012 14:43:57 EST Cancer smancer blahh!! In April when I went to see the oncologist she said to me that she didn't feel comfortable with doing surgery. She also mentioned that radiation may not work because I am to fat ( that the radiation may not penetrate though the fat layers).. She doesn't want to give me hormone therapy because it will make me gain weight.. so basically I am screwed.. at least this is what I thought. I felt like she didn't want to treat me because of my size so I asked my primary to find me another Oncologist ... Fri, 15 Jun 2012 15:08:36 EST Sugar intake Well by golly even though I joined the sweet tooth challenge it seems I have pretty much but not completely got my sugar intake under control. That is I am more conscience of what I am choosing to eat and drink.. <BR> <BR> I can with one hundred percent honesty say I have not had a single soda, diet or regular, in well over a month.. I no longer crave them as much as I use too and they where one of my primary sources of constant sugar intake... <BR> <BR> every now and then I have a swee... Wed, 13 Jun 2012 13:06:00 EST Eating emotionally I really really really want to just drown myself in sugar right now.... guess that is what is called emotional eating... ya get upset or nervous and ya eat what comforts you... well I haven't done it... Though I really want to. <BR> <BR> I know it is not good for me so I am blogging venting I guess that is what is working for now.. perhaps some house work... Struggling today...... Sun, 10 Jun 2012 08:04:20 EST Changes Everything Changes sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad... I have been initiating change in myself for the good.. I joined Sparkpeople and I blog, not everyday but I at least let someone out there somewhere know what I have been up to how I feel and what I think.. <BR> <BR> My biggest change that I have done: I no longer lie to myself about what and how much I eat.. <BR> <BR> Keeping everything tracked is helping me.. I would deliberately leave things off the list like if it's... Thu, 7 Jun 2012 13:31:40 EST Wishful rambling thoughts I hate!! HATE!! HATE!!! being Bi-Polar..... I wish that I could stay manic all the time and never have the down side.... I would be skinny. I don't eat and I have tons of energy. I have interest in doing things and ideas of doing new things... <BR> <em>20</em> <BR> Suddenly a single word from someone (or Hubby), a look from someone (or Hubby) , or a stray thought and I begin smashing, rolling and, bumping down the hill hitting bottom hard loosing interest not caring about anything. More cl... Sat, 2 Jun 2012 10:34:32 EST Blahhh On a down slide mood wise.... Hard as hell to get motivated to do anything and having not lost anything last week doesn't help the mood... I know that not loosing sometimes happens... I am just glad I didn't gain.... <BR> <BR> Small bit of good news. Kittens are two weeks old today and they both have their eyes open now... just a matter of time before their personalities show.. That is a fun time as they are beginning to learn and walk.. Wed, 30 May 2012 13:06:01 EST Drowning Did ya know that some drinks like to drown you in sugar, carbs, and calories.... Good Grief!!! Started tracking my drinks... awe man.. the darn stuff is trying to kill me... At least now I know not to get certain types of beverage anymore... <BR> <BR> I do admit I have not had a single soda in over three weeks THAT WAS A GOAL I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY ACCOMPLISHED.... now I need to cut back on energy drinks... Or at least switch to the sugar free ones... Though I have to admit they taste funny... Fri, 25 May 2012 20:42:52 EST Gardening I had my first salad from my own garden the other day.... just the lettuce tomatoes are not fruited yet... It was yummy... I am so happy that I decided to start gardening... It gives me sunshine and exercise and satisfaction knowing that I did all the work and it cuts down on my grocery bill.. <BR> <BR> I like doing flowers too... am about to go find a place somewhere outside for some Hyacinth Bean Vine.... Hope I can find a good spot... And if I want to go through the trouble I can eat t... Tue, 22 May 2012 10:29:53 EST Sweet Cheeks I've made progress Yippy Yippy woot woot ... I weighed this morning and I lost more weight.. Three weeks ago I started at 503 pounds I am at 484... I am actually doing it.... After years of all those excuses I gave myself...

Has helped me loose and being able to keep track and not lie to myself anymore... <BR> <BR> That is the one big thing that... Mon, 21 May 2012 09:14:38 EST Weather +bones = pain (BunnyFarts) The answer to my joke about the carrots is Bunny farts.... A congratz goes out to Angelvirgo70 to comment with the right answer.. and I loved the carrot scented Air freshener that Gayllynne suggested... <BR> <BR> I had a slightly odd conversation tonight with my Hubby about how I can tell when it's gunna rain or at least rain in the area.... He says it's a old wife's tale and is not proven... <BR> <BR> I say it is proven. I swear every time the weather changes especially after a few ... Sun, 20 May 2012 22:19:37 EST Silly Saturday Keeping the theme via gayleg What smells like carrots but it is invisible?..... Will answer tomorrow if you know what it is comment.. Even if you don't give it a guess... Sat, 19 May 2012 22:47:47 EST Kittens Haven't blogged in a few days.. One reason is I strained my back really bad and pretty much have only been sleeping trying to ignore the pain.. I have also been distracted with the two newest additions to to the fur family.. Penny finally had her kittens starting at 2:30 am Wednesday. <BR> <BR> This was her first litter and she is a young momma.. She had difficulties with the first baby and it broke my heart to hear her scream in pain as I tried to help her deliver Her first ever baby... <... Thu, 17 May 2012 11:29:51 EST Pain One thing that has deterred me before from exercise was the pain that crops up on you.. I love working outside being in the fresh air and moving with a purpose.. Sad thing is is I don't always feel the pain while I am being active.. It doesn't hit me till later in the evening or as I am trying to sleep.. My Back is killing me today.. Makes me just want to curl up and sleep and not move... Sometimes the pain is so strong that I can think of absolutely nothing else.. I know that I didn't ove... Fri, 11 May 2012 23:08:11 EST Yard Work It shouldn't amaze me but yet it does.. Mowing the lawn a few weeks ago verses today I can tell there is a major difference in the way I feel.. I went faster today, about a half hour, than at any other time usually about fifty minutes to an hour, since I started doing the lawn. My lawn is not just a small strip of yard like I have seen in some places.. Just guessing if I could go straight across there are at least 20 lawn mowing stripes if not more with a 26 in blade.. My back yard is bi... Tue, 8 May 2012 22:14:08 EST Moods Ya know eating less and dealing with the pain from exercise is very hard to deal with sometimes.. It doesn't help being moody on top of it and it makes wanting to eat that much more tempting... <BR> <BR> But I have been doing it and I have proof yippy, I lost 9 pounds.. I still think that most of it is water weight that I shed but if not then even better.. So the moodiness and pain is worth it.. <BR> <BR> I have to remember that this is going to be a good thing in the long run.. small s... Mon, 7 May 2012 17:35:43 EST Hunger Pains Good grief folks eating less sure does make it hard to concentrate on things when I swear I am dieing of starvation... Ha Ha Ha... That is what I usta think now I rethink things and I believe it is my bodies way of telling me Your doing the right thing keep at it just give me some water.... <BR> <BR> My mood is great today. I am little apprehensive waiting on Penny, one of my kitties, to give birth any day now possibly any hour. Other than that I feel great still a little sore from the ex... Fri, 4 May 2012 13:56:46 EST Challenge I joined the 10 minute challenge today. I have already been doing the ten minutes actually 15 for the last three days since I joined Spark. I am already feeling some ache from the exercise but I have to keep going in order to stay Alive.. <BR> <BR> My mood so far has been good. I have to admit that I was surprised when I found comments on my blog and page. Sometimes my self- esteem is worth crap and it makes me think that no one cares or that no one actually does the spark thing. Thinking... Thu, 3 May 2012 14:37:37 EST My wake up call I have been struggling with my body my entire life. I have been given no choice in the matter of loosing weight. If I want to live I have got to take control.. No more excuses.. <BR> <BR> I struggle everyday, A year ago I could not even walk from one end of the house to the other with out pain and loss of breath... Today Even though I am heavier than I was last year, I am able to now mow the lawn.. <BR> <BR> It takes me awhile because I have to sit down and rest every few passes. It mak...
