Updated October 7, 2013!

I had spinal fusion surgery in March, 2011. I did well with my recovery and got down to my lowest in years...156lbs. However, whatever I want to blame...depression, work, myself, life...I gained nearly 30+ pounds by the end of that year!!

Last summer my "baby", Bubba (16 year old cat) died. He had not been sick at all and it was a great shock. Soon, my other boy cat, Tigger began getting sick, too and was diagnosed with a thyroid issue. He did not respond to treatment and he died last November.

Since then I have gained about 10 more pounds. I would say that I entered a time of depression. Being a single gal, my cats are like family to me...losing two of them within months was a sad time. I still have two girls (Ellie-15 and Pepper-8) and I got two new kittens (Ditto and Jesse) and they are sister, 5 months old.

Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge and freezer (pantry is going to be done this weekend) of all the foods I should not be eating. I will replace them with fruits and veggies and lean meats. I will start slow with getting active--short walks and some exercise DVD's. I hope to have some results by the time I visit my family in November.

Here is where the "rubber meets the road"...success is mine--if I am willing to work for it and do what needs to be done.

I am getting back to the basics...

    I just read a cure for bad Mondays!

    It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground
    sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma
    suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the
    brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy
    experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!

    My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse
    ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.

    Have a great week and remember to stay focused!

    Hi Erika! I pray that you will have peace about your surgery and that God will comfort you and lead you in His will. I have been thinking of you... I pray the peace of God that passes all understanding will guide your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
