Day 23

Thursday, October 23, 2008

How cute--actually had a comment from a Spark friend inquiring where day 23 was!!!!!!! Thanks for that my friend!!

I have been out all morning and into the early afternoon. I got my Halloween candy--NOTHING I like!!!!!! Here is what I got, Nerds, Sweettarts, Laffy Taffy. We had around 50 last year, so that is probably what we will get this year....depending on the weather!

Then SURPRISE.....I had my MRI with contrast. I called last night after 5PM just to see if there were any cancellations, and there I got in today!! She about killed my arm putting the needle in my vein for the contrast!!!! She actually had to take out the needle and "do" the other arm, and that did NOT hurt. PTL!!!!! Anyway hoping I might get the results tomorrow afternoon!!!!!!!

I really wished I could do more exercise; I am only doing about 20-30 minutes every day, due to the calf/back pain, so I am hoping to get this corrected--whatever the results show. I still keep my vision of a slimmer, healthier me in my head. I keep my post its out and the dressy dress my daughter no longer fits (too big for her) out where I can see it!

Thank you all again, my friends for all your well wishes and just taking the time to come here and comment. I truly means soooooooo much to me!

I liked this quote from Benjamin Mays

The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your
goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach!!!!! that saying anything to you? I hope you all have a goal set.....maybe not a weight one, but one like exercising every day, or eating 4-8 veggies and/or fruits daily. Whatever it is........I hope you have it set!

God bless all of you...........He is you know........blessing you...just find them daily!!!!

    It goes to show you have great friends here and that they love and miss you when they notice you are gone.

    I'm praying that your MRI doesn't show anything drastic.

    Keep the positive mind!

    AHH, THERE YOU ARE. lol I think sometimes I set unrealistic goals for myself. Now I make smaller doable goals. But the big pix is there at the end. I hope you hear soon the results. I always like my results yesterday. No patience. Bless you and take care..... emoticon
