Nothing, really to update.
But I need somewhere to put my thoughts, so here it goes . . . . I have been slacking these past two weeks, that is in eating healthier and exercising. I just got no motivation to go/do anything it's just laziness.
I went to Curves one day last week, and I did walk 2 times yesterday but it was cut short. Total minutes 70 minutes, that doesn't include today, if I decide to go walk again.
As for the eating part, well being on a limited budget doesn't help. But I am trying to eat better portions, it's just not the healthiest of choices. I know I need to go get some groceries soon.
Ok it wasn't all for laziness, I did have to have a tooth extracted and that was my downer, cause my whole jaw hurt, and the pain meds knocked me out for couple days. But now that I am better and I can eat pain free, then things are going to be much better.
Walk daily 20+ minutes
Curves 3X @ 30 minutes
Zumba 2X @ 55-60 Minutes
Fruit 2X per day
Veggie 2X+ per day
Water 64+ daily (done without having to think about it)
Be back to updated by Friday :)
Progress as of today: 19 lbs lost so far, only 24 lbs to go!

Wow! it's been another long time since I was here. But I'm still up in the 300s of my weight and have had many changes here at home so that was a big factor in stressing.
Now, I am a stay at home grandma, with 2 grandkids (4yrs & 9months) a stepgrand (21) who had a baby boy (5 months) so my days are full. I love em, and I believe my beloved son RILEY and GOD sent these beautiful babies to us.
This past week I decided to get back to Curves and went for 3 days but this morning they were closed so there went my plans for a week of Curves. I am planning to do some walking later this evening though to make up for it.
Anyway I just want to let you all know that I am still around and round LOL! And I have not given up on myself. Also if anyone uses facebook, you find me there with this address email@example.com
Have a blessed weekend DDers

Wow it's been a long time since I was here. I guess now is the time to start writing and get moving.
I've been grieving for my son, my baby for 3 years 8 months. My son RILEY journeyed to Heaven on March 3 2006, he was 10 years old at that time. My son had asthma and caught pnomonia really fast, and I was with him when he collapsed. We did all that we could to try to save him but it was not GODs plan, I'm having the hardest time right now especially for these two months. I've also been diagnosed as being depressed because of the grieving and I'm working with the doctor to get through this.
Meeting others has shown me that the majority of parents who grieve for their child have gained weight, averaging about 10 pounds each. For my weight gain, I think this was part of it and also being under a lot of stress, because I also was trying to finish school.
GOD did bless us with a grandson, and him and his mom (my daughter Camie) live with us. This little boy has brought some very joyful times, and I feel that this a big part of GODs plan. I am now a stay-at-home Grandma, and we also have become foster parents to one of my nieces.
So things are working out ok and I need to just trust GOD and let go of my pain. I realize that I am here for a purpose and that I need to be in my best shape possible. Be blessed my DD family.

To Our Baby Boy, Riley
We Love You Baby, and We miss you sooo much, We know you couldnt stay and We want you to know that We dont blame you or GOD either. You are our life, our light. God gave you to me and dad and we were so blessed to have you. You know I often told your brother Santeo, sister Camie Jo and niece Michelle that we needed to care for you more, that anything can happen. I want you to know that I never thought that you would actually leave to heaven, even when I had the dreams, I had hope that GOD would keep you safe and with us for a longer time. Oh Baby, We miss your hugs, your smile, your laugh, We miss just looking at you. To us, you had the most beautiful and wonderfully made body; We always told you that because it was true. Baby, We know your new body is so much better, that you can run and play anytime, and I thank GOD for that. Baby, there will never be anyone like you.....RILEY.....! I will remember all our special times, like when you would sleep next to me when dad was out of town so I wouldnt be alone, when You and I only, would go to the movies, and hold hands if the movie was scary or just to be near each other. I will think of you always too when I go to Church, and you beside me, when you would lean on my shoulders and rest. Also, when you and dads song would come on the TV and you both would be whistling and humming together, or you and him waiting up for me to get back from school. Baby, even now We can see you making that silly grin and it comforts us :), Baby boy, please know that We love every part of you and will do so forever. And Yes! We do look forward to when we will see each other again, but for now We will continue on this journey that GOD has made for us, and carry the love that you had for us and share it with others. Forever, Love to our baby RILEY.....Mom and Dad

365 Words of Well-Being for Women (by Rachel Snyder) "ACCEPT" recognize what you can change and what you can't. In every moment accept that everything is as it should be. Accept that you can't do it all-and who would want to, anyway? Accept a kind word. Don't accept things that aren't yours, like misdirected shame and blame. Accept everything you are and nothing you are not.
