Odds N' Ends

Sunday, September 06, 2020

I will try again to post. I wrote earlier but Spark's famous Vanishing Post trick got me. I still haven't learned to write in Word and then copy and paste. ...I know HOW...just rarely DO it!

Yesterday I had the lovely surprise of seeing I'd lost 3 pounds. That meant that I had met a new goal (getting out of the 180's) and also meant that the hospital helped me to lose. I rarely ate much of anything there..Usually i gain it right back but last admission I lost 10 lbs and Beth (INDYGIRL) encouraged me to not consider it a foregone conclusion that I would regain it. She said I didn't HAVE to regain it. It was more or less up to me. And she was right. I never did regain it. So this time I am planning on holding on to my progress as well.

Fall is almost here. I didn't get out this summer...and soon will come weather that makes getting out hard. I really wish I could go to some farmers' markets and look at all the seasonal colors. The chrysanthemums and the squashes and gourds and of course, pumpkins. I love the colors of Fall. And the smells of it also...spiced cider, and apple butter bubbling away in the slow cooker. It's so HARD to give up things like that that I used to love. Poor health really just stinks. But I know I have things to be grateful for...give me a moment (or ten) and I will think of some. emoticon

This is going to be short because I've not got much on my mind.
Keep up the fight. or the journey--However you want to euphemize it, it's still a struggle. But doesn't it feel wonderful when the scale cooperates or you get in a good workout? I know. That 's what keeps us here. I had the joy last week of being able to fasten a pair of capris that I'd never before been able to get on. (see? I DO have something to be grateful for emoticon )

Keep the faith.

    Poor health does truly stink BUT you are a great example to all of us in that you keep aiming for your goals in spite of obstacles in your path! Another person who does the same and whom we can all be grateful for is INDYGIRL!! What wisdom and such a friend to Spark members!! Keep looking for the positive....
