Another Happy Day

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I want to start today by asking for ideas on a new team for me to join, I'm thinking that I can use a positive team that will get me back my spark...I feel it faltering and I want that rush I use to get each day when I get on any ideas would be appreciated....

We had a great day, a high spot was when Gary told me to jump in the truck as we were going for the boat tags as he is going fishing next week end, so being a smart but I ran from the door and did jump right in, he had the biggest smile on his face ...when I asked what was so funny he said he was remembering back when he had to help me get in the truck, I had a step that I had to use and, it was embarrassing when we were out shopping and the car next to us was to close and I could not get the door open enough to get in...well you can imagine how it felt to have him mover the car out enough , get the step and help me in because I was just to big to life myself up in to the seat, not only was a huge but short as well ...
those days are gone, I now can jump right in no step no help at all...It gives me reason to be so proud of myself.....I have been so blessed.

Have a healthy week end.

we are going hiking tomorrow no matter what the weather might be windy but I'll survive, hope it doesn't rain....

I also want to wish my spark friend Sock it to me a safe ride tomorrow , she is in a bike ride tomorrow and we are concerned about the weather...GO Sock

    Love the car story, it is those types of things that give us such pleasure. I agree with those that state you need a "maintenance team". Or look for a team with challenges that you haven't done yet.

    Just reading your blog makes me smile.
    How great of Gary to make such a wonderful comment.

    You need to stay motivated, so I hope you find a team that does that for you. You have done so much for yourself, that alone would motivate me.

    I have a friend, Carol ,don't know if you know her, she removed a lot of weight and is on a maintenance team, maybe
    it is a good one. I will ask her.

    Hugs Mary

    Thanks for the shout-out, Kitt! I'm not thrilled with the weather but these events go "rain or shine" so we'll just muster through. I'll stay focused on lunch with my mother afterward. Yum!

    And gosh, how cool that Gary pointed out how awesome you are now! I remember having issues getting into my vehicles as well, especially when some rude person parked too close. I'm not skinny like you are yet, but having lost what I have sure makes it easier to get in when I can't get the door open all the way.

    Hope you have a good hike tomorrow!!

    Awesome, Kitt!!! I don't know of a team for positive thoughts, but I bet you could find one putting positive thoughts in the team search bar. Good luck!

    Have a great evening!

    It's the little things that count for sure - but that is a big one to notice!

    When I had my truck 2 years ago and weighed 310 lbs, I noticed a few times that it was hard to squeeze out when someone parked close. Then it happened too many times to count. There was one time when no matter what, I could not get into the truck at the end of the day. By 5:45 the car next to me has not moved. I had to ask a young guy to move my car out so that I could get in. So humiliating.

    So I know, and it's a very big deal.
