Changing things in my life!!

Oct 14, 2010

 I have been changing a lot in my life in the last 2 months.  I decided to start to look at my life and see what I need to change and made some of them.  I had my bad teeth pulled.  I made my 31 year old daughter move out and be on her own.  I asked my boyfriend to live with me.  I changed what I was eating and started taking better care of my self.  So not only have I decided to change me I have changed things around me that were not good for me.  You know sometimes we have to look deep within our self and see what may be causing what is going on with us.  That is a hard thing to do, but some times the hard things are the best things that can happen to us.  

Changing what is not good and making better choices can open up a whole new world to a better out look.  Some times it takes looking in that deep dark place we call ourself.  Really looking at what brought us to were we are in our life and asking ourself is this good for me or is this bad.  In that change we have to find ourself again and learn to love ourself again.  Find the us we lost in such deep dark places.  Letting go of what we thought would be good for us but was not.  

Chang is never easy but the out come can make up for the changes.  I know that changes in my life will be for the better.

 Well today I went to the dentist and got impressions done for my lower and upper front teeth.  I will get my teeth in Oct 18th.  I am very excited about that.  He was impressed how well I had healed.  Thanks to the Vitim E oil and the protein I have been taking in.  More improvement to be underway soon.  One thing more I can check off my todo list.

Wishing it was my turn

Sep 23, 2010

 I read all these post here and on Augusta WLS about those that have a date and I get down.  I am excited to have got this far but I am wishing it was my turn to see Dr. Blaney and get a surgery date.  I know it is coming but still I wish it was here.  I am starting a new turn on life and a healthy way of life for me know.  I do get impatient sometimes but I know it takes time.  November 11th will be here soon and I will have my turn.  

I get my teeth next week and I am looking forward to that also.  Having 8 teeth out at one time is a lot to handle at one time but I did it and they have healed very well.  So let the transformation begin.  


3 More Pounds Gone

Sep 15, 2010

Yesterday was Tuesday and I went to the Center and weighed before going to my exercise class.  3 more pounds gone off the scales.  Boy this is just getting better and better.  I can not wait until I get my surgery date and really start my road to a healthy life.

12 pounds lost

Sep 11, 2010

Well I weighed on Tuesday and I lost 12 lbs.  That was so exciting to see the scale say 472 lbs.  I have always had a dislike for scales but now I think the scale will be a good friend.  It won't lie to me, it will only tell what the truth is.  Good or bad, up or down I know that it is all up to me if I want this to work and I really want this.  This is a long time coming and it is time.  I am planning to weigh myself every Tuesday right before I go to my chair aerobics at Barners 

8 teeth gone

Sep 01, 2010

 Today I got 8 teeth pulled. I am doing good.  It hurt some but with anything like that it is going to hurt.  I have been pushing the protein shakes all day  and tonight I have ate some soup.  All in all it has gone good.  Getting tired but that is good too.  I am going to get some rest and hope tomorrow goes as good as today.

Tracking my meals

Aug 30, 2010

I have been tracking my meals and found that I eat way too many carbs.   This tracking my meals have been a blessing cause I would have never know that I ate that many carbs.  I am trying really hard to add Protein to my daily meal plan.  I am having 8 teeth pulled Wensday and trying to boost the Protein so that will help with the healing...  I am having to change alot in my life so that I will have a more healthy lifestyle.  When I see Dr. Blaney he will see the changes that I have already made to began my life of being healthy.  

These changes are a little scary for me but in the end I know that it is for my health and that I can do anything I set my mind into doing!!  These are positive changes and they will better my life that is for sure.  So what if I have to go without front teeth for 12 weeks I still have to push forward to all my goals and this is one of many to come.  

I do chair aerobics now.  I have been going 2 times a week but now they will offering one more day so I will step up to 3 times a week.  Going to start walking this week with the walker and get out of this chair some.  I just have to make up my mind to do it.  Then I will truly be on my way.  Yes I will push on and get it done.  Cause I know this is part of my problem right now.  This chair has helped me to have an independent life but now I need more independents and a healthy life and sitting in this chair is not doing it.
