FIGHTING IT ALL THE WAY!!!!

And this body is not going to win...I have been dealing with the same 3 pounds for like ever. My body is saying no way you are not going to loose one more pound, I am telling it you are so wrong and I will fight through this.

When I hit 75-76 pound loss it has stopped...So I will keep going on about my life and when my body decides this isn't maintance time...I will continue with the next 65 pounds.

I can't get all wrapped up in these numbers and let them control my daily mood. I was getting all worked up and having panic when I wasn't loosing. It would set my mood for the day. If I got on the scale and it was down, I would be so excited and it was a good day...This isn't the kind of life I want daily...that would be leaving one control for another control over me.

I will continue on the path of a healthy life style and aiming for a better all round healthy living life.

As for other things going on in my life....I just celebrated 12 extra years that I have been given ...It was 12 years ago on October 31st that I had a ruptured Brain Aneurysm....I am a survivor by the Grace of God and many many prayers from family friends and many people all over the country. I thank everyone for this and for everyone that took care of my children, who were 4 and 6 at the time... It was a long year of recovery...but my solid rock and a big part of my recovery was due to my Husband...He was my support, nurse, doctor, therapist, house keeper, cook, childcare provider.....everything for over a year...The company he worked for gave him all the time he needed off and never asked when will you be back in the office...He worked from home for over 3 months..plus a month he spent with me while I was in the hospital...God was there with us the whole time...So on days I want to scream,yell, hate, leave.....list goes on...I think back to How blessed I have been.

Anyway didn't mean to get off on all that but, but it is and was a very memoral time in our life. So other things going on..Our youngest is still working and carrying a heavy load at school, plus her Tennis..she has been a trooper with it all. She is totally loving driving now and having her own money to do her favorite thing.....SHOP!!! She went and made a big purchase the other night...A pair of black sparkle Uggg boots...and she was so excited seeing that she has wanted these boots for several years now.
Our oldest is working and going to collage..just finished up on testing for the semester. He is branching out more and more in life and becoming more independent. Last weekend he took time off from work to go to Ohio State to spend with friends..He drove on his own and went to Cincinnati U first to pick up a friend then back to OSU...found his way and made it home....lol Had a wonderful time.
Mike and I are preparing for our trip to Riviera Maya, in Mexico coming up. We are staying at the Excellance Resort with many friends...we go yearly somewhere..Last year was Cabo San Lucas...next year I believe we will be going to Costa Rica..anyways so looking forward to this and I will post pics when we get back...Sure dont want to come back with much weight gain...looking forward to many walks on the ocean...

So till next time have a wonderful day..and try not to get so excited and caught up in Christmas that we forget THANKSGIVING....

Hugs to all...

I so admire your determination to win the weight battle, a battle that I have been fighting all my life. Sometimes it wins a scrimmage, sometimes I do, but I want to win the war and that's what counts. You have come so far, Yeah for you.

I didn't realize your trip was w/friends...how exciting for you. I was under the impression it was a work related trip for Mike. Have a great time & stay positive! You're doing great!

It's LOSE not LOOSE. It's COLLEGE not COLLAGE. It's MEMORIAL not MEMORAL. It's MAINTENANCE not MAINTANCE. It's also not "healthy" to obsess over a number (your weight) Eat healthy, exercise, and be happy knowing that you ARE healthier.

Congratulations on your weight loss!
Thanks for stopping by. I am definitely affected by the dark/cold Winter months.
