Wednesday March 28,2012

Wow am I excited.. My daughter and I each have lost a total of 10 lbs. A piece this month. The B12 & B6 shots are helping to get my energy level up so I am doing more activity. I go in 60 days for a thyroid test to see if the medicine is working. I hope it is and that it isn't a permanent thing. I do have one sad thing to say I lost another uncle to cancer this last week. His wishes were to be cremented and to have a Memorial service. Which is this Saturday. My husband and I and my parents will be traveling 2 hours to go to the services. In January my dad lost his brother to cancer and this month my mother lost her brother. There were 3 boys in my dads family and there were 7 in my mothers family and now there are 3 left in my dad's.. him and his older brother and there is just 3 left in my mother's .. my mother and her 2 younger sisters. It is hard to see parents lose there loved ones. My grandparents are all gone and now the aunts and uncles are going. I guess that is the process of getting old. I know we must all die but it doesn't make it any easier. I dread the day when it is my parents that have passed on. I don't think I will be able to bare it. We are a close family..
Well I have taken enough writing of my family. On to other things. I would like to hear from you my subscribers.. and see pictures of your things that your proud of either family or your crafts or anything. Please let me see what makes you happy.

Well I am off it is to work I go and I hope it is a good day or I am afraid I will have to close the nail salon.. this economical strain is kicking our butts. Well until later peace I leave with you.

TGIF March 23, 2012

TGIF. I am so glad it is Friday. It has been a week. It has been a struggle. I have been on a roller coaster. Just praying God gives me Favor in his site. I am going thur some things. I just pray things get better or else I won't like the out come of this. The craft me is in a funk and I can;t seem to get past this. And the trouble is I have stuff to craft with just need the mojo to kick in so I can scrap. I need to quite having a pity party because nobody will come and I will be the only on that cares so I need to either go on or stop and let this consume me. And I don't want that to happen. Anyway Monday I go back to the Dr. and see what she says about my progress in the weight I have lost. The no regular soda thing is getting better. Had the with drawls and headache that comes with that. I am going to be researching for recipes for low fat high protein and low carbs. Have had a heck of a time talking to the nutritiousness. Seems as we can't get together and that is discouraging. One thing that did perk me up was a dear friend complimented me and my daughter that she could tell we are losing as she can tell it in our faces. I guess we had chubby cheeks.. lol lol lol I just will be glad to get back into some of my skinny clothes as I call them. Since summer is coming I want to get back in to my capris and shorts and my tanks. As I don't want to buy any more clothes as we all have a whole room downstairs full of our clothes for the whole family. It is like a walk in closet. It is the utility room were the washer and dryer is. There are things we have planed this summer that I want to be able to enjoy but being heavy I can't enjoy them. Well I need to run as it is time for work..
Peace,
Melody

Good Morning March 7,2012

Good Windy Wednesday!!
It is so windy today.. and there predicting rain for the rest of the week after today.. Been a busy week. I have to go and get my B12& B6 shot Thursday and Friday my son is off to a school function and will return home Saturday night. Going to a Global Fest for his Spanish club.. Not sure what I am going to do this weekend.. With rain and all .. probably do laundry and just chill. Or tackle some closet that need cleaning out. Who knows.. Well things are going good with the weight loss.. I am keeping a journal on my computer and writing down everything I eat. Also got a call yesterday from the clinic.. my blood that they drew had some issues. 1. I am anemic and 2. High cholesterol & 3. I have a very low reading on my Thyroid and there wanting to give me medication for it. So maybe that is why I am fat..... lol Anyway I have to go and see the PA when I get my shot to see what I need to do. I will let you all know.. But I best close for now and finish getting ready for work.

Happy Monday March 5, 2012

Happy Monday Y'all !!
It is a gorgeous day here in SI ... The sun is shining and the temps. are not to bad .. I am so proud of my self today.. I didn't go back to sleep after taking Kyle to school .. I didn't feel the urge to crawl back in bed.. Yay Me! Those B12/B6 shot I got is still working .. The energy is still here.. I get a shot once a week ... They may burn but so worth it if it keeps my energy up and I can accomplish daily task. I have had breakfast and dishes are done. Been catching up on my You tube vids.. And I am making out a list of things that need done today and a grocery list. Oi vey I hate that job going to the store for groceries. Seems I buy to much.. But don't we all . I have to cut out my coupons before I go and get my adds to know were to go for my best deals. That in it's self is a chore. The Sunday paper had 3 coupons booklets this week so it is a good week. Sometimes they don't have squat. I am also going to go thur and purge some craft stuff that I haven't used and box it up and give it to a couple of my U Tube friends! I hope they will enjoy it.. Well I need to shove off and get started on my things since I am off today from work . TTYL

The first day of the rest of my life..

Hello all
It is the first day of the rest of my life. I have decided to take control of my life. Decided to take it back. I have been a slug long enough.. I feel so much energetic today .. Due to a B12 and a B 6 shot I got yesterday.. I have been so lethargic and have had no energy and feel so bad but seen the Dr. and advised a B12 & B6 shot for a boost of energy. And it is working I think.. well I have more than I had yesterday .. I have gotten my kitchen clean and the counter tops clean and the stove clean and the dishes done. I hope with the new energy I will start feeling like getting up and doing things. And losing weight. I need to if I am to do all the fun things this summer with the kids. So many vacations and mini trips and I want to enjoy myself and not feel to tired and hurt to walk and participate and not sit and watch. ..

And who knows I might get some scrapping done to like I want to do.
Well break is over and I am off to clean some more.
