What's been going on

Monday, September 24, 2012

Just really an update here:

My mom seems to be doing a bit better. Her blood sugar is getting in control though she has had a few weak episodes and her hand going numb and stumbling and balance issues. She is using a walker now to help her. Thank you everyone for praying. She is still fragile but I pray on the road to recovery. My siblings and I have been sharing the responsibility of taking her to multiple Dr. appointments and tests. Add to this that our HomeSchool year started this month and we went to our annual church conference. Add church activities and groups throughout the week. So all in all, it has been difficult to find time to spend on Spark. But I have continued to eat right and lose weight. As of today, I have lost a total of 71 pounds! Another bonus is that the YMCA pool finally re-opened after being down for repairs for a month so now I have been back to the YMCA twice over the weekend. I think this helped get my weight loss moving again as I have lost a couple of pounds since going back to the Y.

Well I gotta go, headed out to another meeting then back home for more school... then meetings tonight... Plan to go to the YMCA though after that... Ahh swimming pool therapy for me! Works out the stress and the fat!

Soon I plan to do a video blog if I can just find a minute without 5 million things going on and people all around. Too self conscious to do a video blog with people all around...
Pictures coming soon too!

    Hang in there! We were doing that for several years with my husband's mom. And it's a matter of time before we will be doing this for my mom...

    You are doing so well, handling stress and still keeping yourself focused on what is healthy for YOU.

    Hoping your Mom continues to improve, and I hope you can take a little bit of time just for you too.

    It's great, what you and the family are doing and coming together for your Mom. My sister had to do a lot of that alone as my Mom was in a nursing home and I do not live even close to where we grew up, actually in another state. Enjoy this time you al l have with her as they have sacrificed for us as well. You are making your weight lost life style change a priority so keep on doing what you're doing as you are 71 pounds lighter! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
