40 lbs. GONE! But.. I have to lose 8 lbs. to get better Long Term Care Insurance. Dr. check up Feb. 22, 2016. Panic is setting in!Self-talk: Often through the day say "Stop eating; I can have more later."

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week.

Yesterday was good. An aide I pay came and the OT wanted to come at the same time to teach her the OT exercises. We eventually got around to the fact that DH will never exercise on his own. With 3 of us saying that he eventually almost cried and said, But I am in a wheelchair!" The OT was super . She let him vent and then slowly explained why it is still important for him to stay as strong as possible. He doesn't get it. But I hope he can come around. He is only 66. He can do way more than he thinks. In the past 7 years I have done everything-and I mean everything! --to have him exercise. My counselor spent an hour with me trying to figure out how we can get him motivated. He is very stubborn and once he gets an idea in his there is no stopping him. So...he needs to get the idea in his head that he needs to exercise! Thanks for this forum. chris

40 lbs. GONE! But.. I have to lose 8 lbs. to get better Long Term Care Insurance. Dr. check up Feb. 22, 2016. Panic is setting in!Self-talk: Often through the day say "Stop eating; I can have more later."

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week.

Thanks Dee.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Dee thanks for giving goodies out again! Can't believe it is the end of another month! Time moves on and would hope it would return life to "normal" but it doesn't. Grief just takes time. Thanks for your friendship and for the comfort of being able to talk with a Dear Friend that has been there too!

Hugs!!

Please feel free to chat , or post an Emoticon or give off steam ,,,

This is more important for us then other people.. Taking care of our love ones can be stressful and sometimes demanding ... and for some of us the stress and numbness of the lost of our love one ..

Its not easy , we are caretakers and we and our stress levels are different .. No one knows what we go thru or knows what to say to us ..

Remember all the good times in our love ones , Remember the memories and if you can write it down for your children and grandchildren same a piece of history ,,,

Goodies have been given out you most post on the team to get one .. We are here for each other ..so Please stop by and say hello ..

Praying for all and your families each day ..Have a good rest of the month and a great September Hugs Dee
