Good morning ladies, I'm doing better mentally. Went for tests yesterday so waiting to see what the doc says when I see him. Scheduled to see the specialist the week before Christmas. Work is hectic, to say the least so I've been very busy. I'm just trying to maintain weight wise, although the scale is higher than I'd like..if I can keep it from going higher I'll call that success right now as I just want to eat to emotions. Thanks everyone for showing love and support right now. I'm trying to pray and not stress too much.

Roszina, thanks for coming by and giving words of encouragement.

I am so happy you checked in Shari.. I know it is busy and in a way that can be a good thing. Maintaining weight is very important right now, as most people just throw in the towel and wait for Jan. 1.

Praying for peace and good results that can be managed. Praying for knowledgable doctors and healing hands...

Thinking of you my LCF sister...

Shari, got a message for you from Pati today. She is so busy with everything, it is tough to get here.. but she wanted me to pass this on to you.

Since you do go to LCF please do me a favor and tell Shari I'll be
praying for her health. I hope she's ok. Such a sweet family we have
over there at LCF. Just wishing I had more time to visit.


Thinking of you daily!!

Hi ladies, thanks for stopping by and showing love. I'm taking it day to day, trying to eliminate stress in areas that I can control and using the right coping skills in areas I feel I don't have control. I started exercising yesterday to help and I felt like puddy afterward..LOL. I tried Weight Loss Pilates and I'm truly feeling it today...sooo out of shape, smh. Not putting pressure on myself like before so I'm not doing it everyday right now, but I am dedicating 3 days a week to improve my health and relieve stress. I feel so much better when I do and yesterday reminded me of that.

I'm maintaining around 169-175, today I'm sitting right at 175 even...but I'm eating what I want, tracking what I eat so that I'm not going totally overboard and eating 3000 cals/day See my doc tomorrow for consultation and next Wednesday, so please keep the prayers coming...

Prayers being sent your way. Remember the power of positive thought is immense Don't let bad thoughts into your head - you will drive yourself crazy. Let us know how everything goes with the doc tomorrow

Thanks Deb and Jayce! This scare really really put fire under my butt to get healthy!! My doc and I discussed losing weight and I agreed to work on losing 30lbs...but it's so much more right now than just losing weight for the pleasure of looking at smaller numbers, I want to be healthy as well for my boys and people I love..to be around as long as I'm destined to be. I'm actively working on lowering my cholesterol level by working out again and eating less fried stuff. Weighing in at 170 even this morning.

I guess I'm doing more 17dd for the detox and healthier eating options along with WW for daily points to make sure I don't go over. I like that everyday I'm eating yogurt, fruit, lean meat and veggies with healthy oils (olive oil). Nothing too strict though as myself and other families went out to Red Robin on Saturday to celebrate December bdays..my son's was on the 11th, he turned 12!! I had a Chicken Cesear wrap with sweet potato fries..yum!

That is so wonderful Shari! I am happy you are taking your health by the horns, as I feel the same way. MUST be around for as long as we are meant to be. So many emotions after that horrible day Friday, and those lost souls.. UGH!!!!

Anyway, time for good thoughts, feelings and getting healthy!! I love your plan!! So happy all is well! Have a wonderful Monday!

Thanks Deb and Gracie, I've been able to sleep well again. I take nothing for granted now after that health scare and thank God daily. I'm off today to see a specialist to still see why a couple of my labwork numbers are off...pray he can find out why

The scale is playing with me...just when I thought I'd see the 160's again, it jumped up to 172.4 yesterday and today is 171.6. Oh well, I'm still eating healthier but need to exercise either today or tomorrow. I met goal to exercise 3 times last week.

The scale is wonky here too.. Oh well, As long as you know what you are eating is healthy, and not tooooooo much, everything will work out in the end.

I am so happy things are better for you now, I can't imagine having to deal with health issues at this time along with everything else that goes on.

I pray you find answers to the off test numbers and they are minor... Have a wonderful day!!

Thanks for the support Deb, it's truly appreciated.

I was out running errands and getting last minute presents after doc appt. (no conclusion yet..still testing). I found great deals that made my heart sing..LOL. I love bargains! I see a George Foreman grill on sale for $20 at Sears I want to get my grandma so I'm going to try to grab that today.

Scale was on my side today, 169.6, but I really didn't eat much yesterday because I was out and walking a lot, so I expect it might jump back up today.

I'm on vacation next week..not returning to work until the following Wednesday!! I'm so happy and looking forward to it...I need a break from the high stress at work right now.

Thanks Deb

I went out Friday to celebrate December birthday for one of "the moms" as I like to call this group of friends. All of our kids are best friends with each other so we're always seeing each other and doing things with the kids together. We went out last week too to Red Robin but that included my son. Friday was for the adults only..LOL. I had a really nice time and it was a great way to unwind after a rough month.
Scale holding in the high 160's..168.8 today. As I mentioned in Deb's journal I have a couple more gift cards to get then I'm done for Christmas..thank goodness.
