One day at a time.

Thursday, January 16, 2020

This has been my motto since Sept 2006. It was more relevant all last year (2019) with medical issues for me, my mom and my husband. Then my mom passed away of complications of stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer on October 15, 2019. Now I have added I'm trying.

I have been heavy most of my life. Partly due to un-diagnosed hereditary thyroid condition (military doctors wouldnt do the right test to confirm it). At my highest I was 357lbs (thanks to issues with my ex-husband). In 2005 I got down to 280 but crept back up to about 330. Then in 2013 or 2014 after not knowing I was diabetic for 6 months, I ended up in the hospital over Easter.The doctors still cant agree if it was a mini stroke or a misdiagnosis of migraines. So that was a crash where I lost 70lbs in 3 months. Not the healthy way of doing it. That started a domino effect of other health problems.

I had been saying after my surgery this past May that I needed to start getting in shape and be serious about it.

My niece is a personal trainer and the gym she goes to was having a special, a 6 month membership that is normally $50 was now $25 and then after that it is $24 a month.

So I bought it last Thursday, signed up on Friday, and stated working out on Saturday.

Still just taking it one day at a time. emoticon

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are advised to do on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals your water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track of when to take my water

    I am happy to share my testimony here today with the world i never imagine myself doing this but I'm full of joy and i want others to have their help to. Am an office secretary by profession, i have two kids with a husband. My husband abandoned me and our children without any explanation he just left the house and the next thing i heard he is seeing another woman, i tried all possible means to get him back home but he acted strangely towards me and even neglected the kids. I was frustrated and devastated, i searched for help from different angles until i saw a post about Dr Ajayi a spell caster. I contacted a spell caster, who told me what to do. He assured me that he will cast a Spell and all will be well within three days but i was skeptical, i gave it some thoughts before i finally contacted him again, we went through the process together and to my surprised the spell worked and my husband has returned home and knelt to beg for forgiveness but the first was a surprise call from him because we haven't talked for about 6 months . Dr Ajayi is really a man of his words, if you are having problems in your relationship or any aspect of your life contact the spell caster Dr Ajayi for a lasting solution.
