It's really all about ME!

Well its off to work I go today. I have decided to work about 20 hrs a week, since I no longer have the kids on a daily basis. My daughter said I will work until it interfers with my social life. Who knows, maybe she has insight? :)
Well tomoorw is the big day.
Well I hope it not the *BIG* day. I mean I have my first weigh in after my first week at weight watchers
I have been really good this week and haven't fallen back into my old habits. The really good news so far this week has been my blood sugar numbers have been down 2 different days to a really acceptable number. WooHoo!
I'd be lying to say that that is the only reason I want to lose this weight, because it's not. I want to go down atleast one size if not two.
I have been praying that the Lord gives me the wisdom and strength to follow this program, because I know it is a healthy lifestyle.
So, when I check in tomorrow I hope to have really good news.
I think I am learning a valuable lesson in setting short term goals as opposed to being overwhelmed by the big picture. Hey if I only lose 1 (one) lb. a wee in 5 months I have reached my long term goal. Not bad, right? But truthfully, my short term goal is 10 lbs. I will be tickled PINK with that weight loss.
Enough of that stuff.
I hope everyone has a wonderfully, Blessed Day!
Hugs, Sharon

I feel Challenged

Since Becky requested we post our blog *address* I feel challenged to write something.
Let's see the month of August has flown by. The kids are back in school, up where their Mom lives so I don't have them before and after school BooHoo. I suffered from empty nest once again, this time because the grandchildren aren't with me daily.
Then my Mom came up to visit from Florida. It was so good to see her., but getting her from there to here was a real pain.
As most of my readers know she had the defibralator put in last month, well when you go to the airport and other stuff you can't go through the metal detector. Well they walked her through!!!! ( Haven't quite gotten this straighten out, since on body takes any responsibility) To much to go into detail about, but anyway she ended up in the emergency room in Atlanta, Georgia!! I'm at the airport in Baltimore trying to track her down, after speaking with 2 agents, finally the 3rd one told me she hated to inform me but my Mom was in the hospital!!! In Atlanta, no less.I did track her down in the hospital and spoke with her, we are not sure if what set the defib off, but after what should have been a 2 hour flight and turned into a 9 hour ordeal!!!! my Mom landed safely in Balt. Hip-Hip-Hooray!
Now it is September, I have joined Weight Watchers. I have a really good feeling about this. I started menopause almost two years ago and have put on 18 pounds. I know that may sound like an excuse for gaining weight but it is the truth. I will say when I started gaining the weight, I should have put a stop to it then, but...I didn't. So, I am now taking charge and know that this is a commitment I have to keep.
My blood sugar has been running higher than it should, and my Hc1 ( three month test) has gone up every three months for the past 9 months. When I saw my Mom and and her health problems due to diabetes(type 1) I decided to do something about my weight. Her diabetes is something she had no control over she developed it in her teens, mine is due to gaining weight and I can do something about it. I figured if I do what I can to control the condition of my health and am not negligent, then I may have a good chance of not developing serious stuff as I get older. Enough about me and icky stuff.
We went back to our church for a visit that we started going to 3 years ago. It was really nice to see everyone. They were warm and friendly. It is so hard to decide on a church. I am a people person and want to be involved, JB on the other hand is a people person who doesn't want to be involved. He doesn't like to make any commitment unless he can always give 100%. That is his personality in all areas of his life. I guess I am a little more scattered. That's why we compliment each other. Anyway it so happened my daughter, her soon to be husband and the grands were there it was great! Don't know where this will go so we will see. I know God will put us where he wants us, if we follow his leading.
I will close for now, God Bless You All!
If the picture I loaded show up that is Sami on the left and Emme on the right.
