May Madness

Thursday, May 03, 2012

well it's been over a month and a half since I was on. So much stuff going on here at home.Sad to say my sons other grandmother is dying of cancer back west so we have been trying to get this house ready for the market and sell it and try and buy a house out near their grandmother 1900 miles away so imagine the stress and tons to do and my being disabled isn't helping much but I am doing what I can although paying a price. BUT, despite all this madness I have steadily been losing weight ! emoticon 24 pounds down in just under 15 weeks, thats an average of 1.5 lbs a week which is great for me because I calculate my BMR and calorie intake to lose just 1 lb a week so anything over that is "gravy" hee hee, so to say(although I don't eat the gravy) emoticon
Despite all my stress I still choose to eat healthy and never pass up my morning oatmeal and last week when I saw my family DR and had my blood work he called the next day and said my results were amazing and so to keep on with my healthy lifestyle ( I had told him all about figuring out my BMR and keeping my calories limited to what it said for me and that I watched what I ate and refused to go on the Cholesterol meds he had prescribed for me back in Feb. and now due to my diet I lowered my numbers by over 40 pts and don't need any medication emoticon yay

Happy camper here, so full speed ahead. I still have a long ways to go but seeing my scales always go down slowly but surely is way better than watching them creep up pretty fast,lol, So, I am so busy here trying to get things ready so we can move, trying to find a place to live over the phone with a realtor and lender 1900 miles away, etc...yes, crazy busy but so nice dropping 2 sizes and my son is still doing this with me and he has lost 36 pounds in the same amount of time,lol,though he is younger and bigger and a guy so they have it easier,lol,but we both always encourage each other.

Ok.now I wrote a book I see here,lol, best say adieu for now and ciao and adios.aloha too.
Have a great day and keep the faith. Never let stress be the reason you over eat. Just do other things!! Peace,love and extra blessings to you all!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks all you sweet people for the wonderful kind comments here. Yes, happy about my sons and my weight loss but so stressing about Maria, their grandmother. Just got a call from their dad and he says things are really rough for her and he is doing all that he can but worries. I told him we are trying so hard to get out there so we can help and just be there with her also. Praying for things to go smoothly. So much to do. Must run again but wanted to pop on and check messages and say hello to everyone! Thanks and God Bless! emoticon
