Patiently Waiting

I called the weight loss doctor because they didn't call me in April and the nurse said they were having a few problems getting it together but they will call me as soon as possible. I hate the waiting. I need this more than anything in my life right now. I need to get the weight off for medical and personal reasons.
My hubby doesn't understand. He wants me to do it naturally. He doesn't get that I am addicted to food and I try to explain it to him when it comes to his cigarettes but you have to eat to live but I live to eat.
well, I am busy going in and out but it looks like rain which is good for my vegetable, herbs and flowers.

Finding Me

I am patiently waiting for the doctor to call me getting the Sleeve Surgery

I have been reading up on it and I think it is for me. I am so tired of being sick and tired and I know it stems from my weight and also having RA. 

Hubby and I have been doing smoothies and they make me feel better and tons of energy but seem to always want junk food and sweets. Why, oh why do I have to be addicted to food. 
Life has got to get easier. I just turned 54 in Feb. and I want to fit into my Mother In Laws wedding dress when I renew my vows next year. 10 years but we have been in each others lives since we were 6 years old.
I am really thinking of giving up my blog and reading of others but I sometimes like to see what is happening other then just in Facebook. Decisions, decisions.

nothing much

I said I was going to try and write in my blog more but sometimes life happens. 

I have been doing pretty good with my

it is really a big pain but putting my big girl panties on and making all of my doctor appointments. 1 down for this month, 3 in March and one in April. 

I am hoping to spend the month of July in Tennessee and drive back with my sister, niece and brother in law to go to my brother's 4th wedding. She is the one and I wish he would have met her first. 

Daughter is still in college and she is loving it. It is taking a toll on her father and I financially. I told her this is the last 4 months we are paying and if she doesn't get a job for the next semester, she would not be going. Keeping fingers crossed that she will step it up. 

Big Super Bowl party at my sister in laws house but thinking of just staying home and having my girlfriend over for a few shots of tequila and some laughs. Hubby can go and bet his little heart out and hopefully this year we will win. Her parties are so much fun and I know I will probably regret not going but I really think I need to chill and hang out with my good friend. We will see.

Have a great weekend everyone.

New Year

As you know, we are now coming up on a new year. You know I have made resolutions to change the areas of my life that need it, and I ask for your strength to make those changes. I ask for your continued blessings and guidance to make me more like you, to walk better in your path, this year.
I also ask, Lord, for your continued blessings on those around me. I ask that this year be one of peace and joy for my family and friends. I ask that you continue to be a presence in all of our lives. I ask that you give each of us a heart for you and a desire to serve to make the world a better place. I also ask for peace and blessings on those far from home, for those who suffer, and for those who need you a little more each day.
Thank you, Lord, for all you do in my life and for all your continued blessings and love. In your name, Amen.

I am hoping to find some time and inspiration to start posting on a regular basis.

I am all over the place tonight because of the pain. Hubby wants to talk in the morning and if I don't get to bed soon, I will be a wreck.

Happy Easter

I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter.

My sister in laws 50th birthday party is today and I am so excited. I made her a poster and I think it turned out wonderful. I will be taking tons of pictures to put on Facebook. 

I have lost a total of 18.6 lbs. I struggled for a time and put back 9 lbs but have almost lost all of them. I am hoping to do good today at the party. I know I want to have a few drinks but not sure of what. I haven't really been exercising much. I can only do about 8 minutes of my Walk Away the Pounds tapes but I know that with the warmer weather I will be going outside and taking the dog for walks.
My wonderful little spoiled dog Bambi.

Well, it is time for me to get some coffee and start my day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I just wanted to make a quick post tonight since I will be cooking all day tomorrow. I can't believe that I did not buy corned beef and cabbage. Hubby wanted a big pork tenderloin so I will be making that. I also need to make chicken salad, roast carrots and mushrooms. I want to make my blueberries muffins since I love having those with a cup of coffee in the morning.
I will be taking tons of photos this year of the garden and when I start canning. I have never done it before and my neighbor gave me about 100 glass jars. I am excited about it. I think I am going to do spaghetti sauce, marinara, stewed tomatoes, pickles and whatever else I can think of. 

Have a great Sunday.
