Not giving up!

Monday, September 17, 2012

Hi everyone,
Last week was hard. I have 4 good hours a day and it is hard to do all I want to do!
I am learning to go slow and stretch a lot! I am working on only thinking about the positive
and no negatives. This is a long journey for me and even though I am overweight my goal
is to be healthy.
I would like to thank every one for all the support. Sparkpeople is such a wonderful
place to get to know people that are on the same journey.
Thanks for all the goodies I am trying to thank everyone individually but I am slow!
Good luck sparkfriends ! Hope everyone has a good week!

    Hi Janet Like you i have a window of 4 hours after i take my meds on a morning to get as much done as possible Usually getting dressed prepare food for the day and a little exercise then after a couple of hours on the sofa with a duvet i usually have a bit of energy and from 4-7 finish off anything that really needs doing I have good friends who help me out with the heavier jobs vaccuming gardening peeling veg and any other things i struggle with but after 18 yr have given in to accept help. Some days i can walk for miles others just to the loo 30steps each way can be too much. So I really feel for you . My motto now Is do what you can and to hell with the rest so what if there is a film of dust on the tv or crumbs on the table. Try and find a good friend to help you out when times are too badGo to bed if you need it but do try for a little exercise each day Thinking of you emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Janet ~
    We can only do our best in the time we have - even though we always feel like we should be doing more! I'm gradually learning to adjust my daily expectations of myself and feel much better about what I get done now. One thing that's working for me is to select a couple of big tasks that I want to finish BUT not put a time for completion. Instead, I set a timer for 20 minutes a devote that time to working on the task - 20 minutes a day really does show results! Then, I don't feel overwhelmed or guilty about doing something I want to do - I've put my time in!

    If only we could stop time to get everything done that we need to do. Do what you can, and take it slow. It will happen eventually.

    my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off.

    i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x.

    we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal
