I seem to be good for a while then I get depressed or bored and eat more than I should. I also have to balance my carbohydrates, proteins, and fiber better. I am either getting loose bowels or diarrhea; or I am getting constipated now. I think I might have trouble with IBS like my daughter too. I have a lot of gas problems. I think we might lose our van transportation on Tuesdays. Now the coordinator has come up with ... Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:23:35 EST Result of urogynecologist visit and down two pills http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5909098 Well my new doctor sent a message through her nurse that I am to stop taking my furesomide. <BR> I went to urogynecologist on Wednesday. They did not find any bladder infection. They said the channel or thing that connects the bladder to the urethra is either weak or broken. He suggested I could do nothing, do therapy, or do surgery. I decided on physical therapy to strengthen it. I start on it on the 22nd of this month. That is the anniversary date of when me and my late husband married. It... Fri, 10 Apr 2015 21:45:44 EST Two Assignments This Week and New Dress http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5907257 I have 2 assignments this week; one is a group one and the other is writing about my worldview again. I got a great deal on a dress today at Younkers. It was originally 54 dollars. It was marked down to $39.99. The sales clerk gave me the 35 percent off even though I did not have a coupon. I got it for 25 instead plus tax. It is in a size Petite Large too. So tell me how can I be 200 pounds like the doctor says? If I was I would not even be able to get it over my shoulders. Tue, 7 Apr 2015 18:56:49 EST Gain This Week Hallejuhah Song and Class http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5905930 I had a gain of a pound this week I went from 115 to 116. I want to get down to 110 where I can fit into all those clothes I wore before. We sang the Hallelujah song in church today. It was beautiful! It made me cry. I turned in my assignment for this week already. The professor said I could go to a Jehovah Witnesses church or Mormon for the assignment. We have Jehovah Witnesses in Marinette so that will work. I do not know about any museum here though. We only have the Bayer Museum where the... Sun, 5 Apr 2015 16:41:24 EST Reweigh Tomorrow, New Class and New Doctor http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5903798 I will have to weigh myself again tomorrow. The scale kept jumping around again. I do not think I lost 5 pounds cause I did not exercise enough. I am in a new class now having to do with Intercultural Communications. I have to write a paper about the demographics of Peshtigo, I also have to interview a native here, an immigrant, and a visitor later on. The two assignments that I might not get full points on are an ethnic church observation and a cultural museum visit. I am supposed to attend ... Wed, 1 Apr 2015 20:40:01 EST Changing Doctors, Endoscopy results, and other stuff http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5896664 I lost 3 pounds this week and am down to 120 now. I only walked and ate less because we did not have many snacks in the house to eat. I went to have my endoscopy done yesterday. The experience was a lot nicer than the last one I had. They found scarring or something and widened it. I am changing doctors because mine simply did not do anything for me. She said to go and have just liquids whenever I encounter the problem with IBS. What is that going to do? It will not make it go away.My acid r... Fri, 20 Mar 2015 20:04:58 EST Feeling Depressed and Waiting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5893008 I am feeling kind of depressed about my future right now. I seem to be stagnant unable to make any progress when it comes to getting a job or getting published at all. I am waiting for a person from my church to call me back; not that deacon. He has a lot of answering to do. Where does he get off thinking he is so high and holy? There is only one who is really holy and sinless and it is Jesus. I do not even feel like talking to him after what he pulled last week. I am struggling with this les... Sat, 14 Mar 2015 20:37:52 EST Updates http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5892486 Well I lost a pound this week which I have to log in yet. We ended up going to my friends Pentecostal church on Sunday morning. The other lady is back from her family excursion now; and I will ask her to take us to church. The professor is really being a stick in the mud. He told me in an email that even the titles are supposed to be alphabetized . In other words I guess he wants me go by the first letter of the first word in a title and put that first. What a pile of poppy cock! Our friends... Fri, 13 Mar 2015 21:26:56 EST Cancellation, and uncooperative church deacon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5886575 I had to cancel my chiropractic appointment for today because of the weather. I did not know if the van would be able to come or not. I rescheduled it for next Thursday. We have a deacon in our church who is very unwilling to help us out with rides. It seems whenever the other two women are out of town he cannot be relied on to call you back with an answer. One of the ladies fell down on the ice a few weeks ago and broke bones in her leg. She is recovering in a nursing home now. The other lad... Tue, 3 Mar 2015 23:49:34 EST Debt Collectors and sore back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5883927 Well they are at it again harassing me with letters and phone calls. Trying to get their money again. I took everything out of the other bank and put all but 100 dollars in my checking account. I have no other CD's left. After this it is down to the IRA's. I was told that they cannot touch my checking account. I also had another crank caller pretending to be an IRS agent and telling me to call in 48 hours or else. When it rains it pours around here. Part of our computer desk fell down last ni... Fri, 27 Feb 2015 20:51:30 EST Results of Doctor Visit and Weight Loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5882593 Well I am taking antibiotics for a bladder infection now. I only take them for 3 days. They found blood and white cells in my urine. I also have to go in and have an endoscopy for my acid re-flux problem in March. I lost another pound and the professor says the problem is with my punctuation in my references. Wed, 25 Feb 2015 15:55:42 EST Update on Doctor and Problem with Professor http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5881420 I was supposed to go to the doctor today but had to cancel because of the cold weather. I will see her on Wednesday. Having a conflict in my new class with my professor. He graded one of my papers and commented on the references. I had the references in APA format and he keeps saying that they are wrong. In the first place in the assignment before this it said APA was not needed. So why is he complaining? I have a praise though; my grade went up from a B+ to an A- this week. Mon, 23 Feb 2015 20:42:30 EST Doctor's Visit, Class, and Weight Loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5879649 Well I lost about 2 pounds this past week even though I did not exercise much. It has been exceptionally cold here this week. I am going to see my doctor on Monday. I have been having trouble swallowing food the last couple of days. I also had very bad hearetburn yesterday. I think the heartburn was from the coffee I drank.; It is very strong and I only used 3 scoops! I got the coffee from my pastor and his wife. They roast therir own coffee and sell it. They sell more than one brand of coff... Fri, 20 Feb 2015 22:46:43 EST Change Is Hard http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5874682 It is hard to change your habits when you get stuck in a rut, That seems to be my problem of late. I started out good then went back to the same old way again. I have not donny exercise today yet and I have to go to a Ladies meeting at my friend's church tonight yet. Today is the day when I see if their attitudes towards me have changes since I was there over a year ago. I went with my friend to their prayer meeting and the other ladies seemed to ignore me the whole time. I planned on going t... Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18:57:11 EST Another Day Forward and Stuff of Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5859870 I got all my exercising done already. I went back to Beach Body today; I am going to start back slowly. I did not do the floor workout of the Booty Sculpt; my abs are not that strong yet. It will take a while for me to get it back. I am down to 141.8 now less than 2 pounds but still a loss. <BR> Have to think of which book I want to write a book review about for our writers group next month. I also have to write a devotion yet for our group next month. PowerPoint did not go so well. I wanted ... Wed, 21 Jan 2015 21:52:06 EST Know It Alls http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5858335 Have you ever tried to talk to someone and they acted like they knew it all? Well that was my experience today. I went to the chiropractor to get adjusted and one of the receptionists started talking. I was telling her about the recipes on SparkPeople and she responded that some of the stuff in them was not good for the body. Like fat free or sugar free or low fat stuff; she said the body does not know how to digest them. She said she eats high fat foods and exercises the calories off. She s...

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 22:04:49 EST Long Road Back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5853887 Well I did the leg workout today from Sparks and it was hard. I cannot kneel down on my knees anymore. When i do I am in excruciating pain. Jenny says it must be from arthritis.. I weigh myself tomorrow and will get more cardio in cause I have to walk to the store. I misplaced my weekly menu and could not find the recipe for supper. We had to order out. Tue, 13 Jan 2015 22:47:11 EST How Weak I Am! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5852214 I did the core worlout from Sparks and I could not raise myself off the floor very much. my strength in the core is very weak.

I will work back up to my kickboxing again. i am working on an assignment for class having to do with prime-yime dramas. I chose CSI but I ... Fri, 9 Jan 2015 22:51:25 EST Waiting, Out of Control, and Writing a Novel http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5836005 I hate waiting around for someone to finish part of the assignment. Outline is done and the other person is working on the play now. Just wish she would hurry it up. Tomorrow is a busy day. Church in the morning and at night we have our Christmas concert. So not much time in between. My diet is a total flop. i am totally out of control yet with eating. The only thing that is going well yet is my grades. i got an A last week on my one assignment and A's on both assignments this week. My sister...

Only between the professor and the Loud Cloud assignment instructions I did not get it 100 percent right. I was supposed to write about a team that was composed of different people like in my university. I was supposed to write about each ones different jobs. But the assignments are never clear enough. I just sent in two this last time. One about a feature story on an issue in our community and another about writing out two print stor...

My sister Carol talked about how she changed after she became a Christian. That she had such a sweet spirit all the time. I will miss her dearly. Our family is still dysfunctional. My sister Shirley refuses to forgive us; she hardly talked to me at the funeral. She does not even act like a Christian anymore. the Bible says we will know them by their fruits. Well hers are rotten so that means she is not one of us. god pointe... Wed, 26 Nov 2014 22:04:04 EST Having A Bad Week In Class and Gaining Weight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5789921 Well I am so very disgruntled, upset. irritated and disgusted. This week we are supposed to be doing a group project for Public Relations. We have not even started it yet because the third member is not responding. She does not post in our group forum. So how in the world can we get anything started?!! And there is only 3 of us in it too and the assignment is huge. I will be very upset if we get a poor grade on it. I am gaining too much weight and not exercising. A lot of my clothes do not fi... Tue, 30 Sep 2014 18:32:22 EST Bible Study and Dentist Appointment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5766820 We have been going through a bible study on perfectionism these past couple months. I have been learning a lot about myself as well. How hard I am on myself and my daughter at times. It is a hard habit to break. I still spend too much time doing school work than housework. I still chastise myself when i make mistakes. And I still spend too much time on computer games to try to avoid reality. I still want to get A's all the time; to prove myself to others. Thursday I go to Appleton to get a de... Mon, 25 Aug 2014 15:41:53 EST Doctors Visit and Grade on Assignment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761038 Well i went to the doctor yesterday to get help for my bladder trouble. She prescribed Oxybutin and told me to cut back on my coffee. Ouch! I love my coffee. I can drink a whole pot of it myself. I will never cut it out completely cause then i would be a bear. I am down to 3 cups now instead of 6. Also she wants me to wear support hose or stockings. I have some but one one leg it cut into my leg under the knee. I got an A on my assignment for last week. I just turned in my photograph one toni... Sat, 16 Aug 2014 20:44:01 EST Doctors Scales and other things http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5758213 I am so mad at the huge difference between my scale and the doctors. Mine said 123.4 when i weighed on it now. According to the doctors scale I was weighed at 197 pounds! That was on the 29th of last month! If i was that heavy i would not even be able to fit into the clothes i can still wear yet. Of course some do not fit because i gained too much weight; but not that much! T%hat is why i never even look at it anymore. It just makes me mad. In my last class I did a brochure about SparkPeople.... Tue, 12 Aug 2014 11:10:42 EST Time To Catch Up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5757925 Well I am sorry that i have been a no show for months here. I can only say that I got lazy and distracted by my school work again. I have gained weight and i intend to try and change that. But first I have to line up my day so I do not spend so much time with class. It seems i am once more being taken over by it. And the house is in disarray again. My left leg is getting better now. Have been seeing a therapist for it. Went to a dental place in Oconto a few weeks back. Very bad experience the... Mon, 11 Aug 2014 23:21:37 EST Thanks For Prayers and Weight Gain And Philosophy Class http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5712285 I want to thank all of you on Sparks who prayed for my daughter before. It turned out to be just a muscle sprain and nothing more but it was a wake up call for her to lose weight. I have some serious losing to do yet. I cannot fit into my clothes from last year and my daughter says she is disappointed in me too. Lately I have been feeling depressed and have no ambition to really do anything. Now I am in Philosophy and it is much harder than my other classes were. I have to write a paper abou...

She might have a possible blood clot in her left leg. She told me it was hurting her really bad before she called the doctor. I am so scared right now. This waiting is so hard not knowing. She has the cell phone and she will call when she can.

Jennifer finally got her room more organized and less messy. I am depressed cause i do not think i will be able to go to camp again cause of my hand and the pain in my back and leg. Something i look forward to is gone. I am learning how to be real and authentic in out bible study and be more open with others. In church Wednesday night i explained how i was a pacifist and woul...

I keep putting things off until it is too late or i have to do it. It is the number 1 reason i sometimes send in bill payments late cause i put if off and then forget where i stored the bills until the due date is past. I keep putting off going back to losing weight until tomorrow and here it is and i did not do anything yet. It is the reason i am not moving forward in my writing cause i do not spend t... Thu, 1 May 2014 20:15:35 EST Depressed Over Church Issue And My Friend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5683423 I am depressed today because the issue with the lady from church still is not resolved, We sent her a card yesterday telling her that we were thinking and praying for her and we have not heard from her yet. We think another party from church who is very close to her influenced her, It is a sad state of affairs not to be able to go to church, I hope after the anniversary of his death that the lady starts to rethink everything that she said and realize it was just a misunderstanding between her...

Secondly, once more we will not be going to church on Sunday because of a misunderstanding between the woman who takes us to church most of the time and my daughter. She took my daughter down to see the doctor this morning because of the tick bite and said she wold b...

Our pastor daughter's had her baby boy yesterday at 3 pm. He is a proud grandpa now. L... Wed, 12 Feb 2014 21:44:07 EST Good News Finally http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5618900 I got a check from the accident insurance company today. It was for over 900 dollars! Hallelujah! <BR> Now i can pay off some of my bills and have something to live on. I will get over 1400 back in taxes too.

Sun, 2 Feb 2014 21:58:12 EST Better Business Bureau Church update and poems http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5612540 Well i filed a complaint against Discover today with the Better Business Bureau.
