Weight Be Gone!

Hi Everyone!  This is my Weight Be Gone Thursday for me.  If you'd like to follow me in my journey you are welcome.  If you'd like to share your own journey feel free to sign my linky below, and I'll come visit you or if you have a great diet recipe that would be appreciated very much. Thank you.  The reason I've started my journey is I had a rude awakening to the reality of life in that I'm not getting any younger, and if I still wanted to lead a fun, and  happy life I had to make some serious changes.

Last week I was 251 lbs. & as of this morning 250 lbs. no exercising until my shots just watching what I eat & getting movement when I can.  I'd like to give this little prayer to you all who diet along with me, and remember it in your heart for every situation.  Love you all & thanks for stopping by. 

 The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

A friend, Janet from Janet's Book Place put this up last week, and I just wanted to reiterate that if we all live by this wonderful golden rule how much better off we would be. As they say we are all our own worst enemy.  As you all know I have Spinal Stenosis and now I'm fighting with practicing physicians that I wish they would stop practicing on me.  I need me a FOR REAL DOCTOR, and as it were I'm still trying to find one, and still fighting this cellulitis that won't go away, but is getting worse.  My shots are not due until May 11th and I can get back to my exercising, but for now I've gone from my cane to my walker because the pain just won't leave me alone in the morning, and sometimes the whole day.  So until then I watch what I eat and my portion size, and I still lift my 3lb weights at the desk while I read your wonderful comments and Posts.

Here's a recipe from me:  XmasDolly's Baby Spinach Salad.
Baby Spinach, cherry tomatoes, one chopped boiled egg, and one chopped green onion. Two tbls. of lite Ranch dressing (or whatever you like).  A couple of wheat crackers & what a fantastic lunch or supper.  Oh well, I like it.  hehehe  Have a great day!

a punnet of mushrooms, is a packet (they normally come in a wee tray here in SA) so ½ of that wee tray.

2 full eggs (yolks and whites) and ½ cup of ONLY egg whites.

I don't know if you can use one of these or not with your back condition but have you tried one of those large rubber balls. You do not have to do any extreme exercise but lean against them and roll a bit back and forth. Might help with the pain but don't overdue it until you talk with your Doc. I'll check in next week!

That prayer is definitely applicable for LIFE in general! It's one of the more comforting ones I think.

As my mom tells me you can only do the best you can do and it sounds like you're doing the best you can with the circumstances you've been given and I don't see anything wrong with that!

I'm proud of you Dolly! Keep up that good work and hang in there until the 11th.

<3 you :)
