Things on my mind...

Random thoughts for a Friday night.....

Yesterday I decided to wear my dress pants. I had not worn them since last spring. It's been nothin' but skirts, dresses, capri's and shorts for me this summer, but as fall is creeping in, I decided I needed a change. As I was digging through my closet I found 2 black pairs of pants. I checked out the tags and I picked the pair I thought I should wear. I tried the pants on, got them up...almost buttoned, but they did not fit....OH NO!!! Then I tried on the other pair...they fit, but were quite loose!! I was a little perplexed and could not figure out what was going on...Then I realized the pair that fit and are too loose are my pants. They are size 16. The other pair that did not fit, are my daughters, they are size 13. What's so exciting is, I'm already thinking I should be in size 13 ~ they were my first choice!!! I thought I was already there. The neat thing is....I'm close!!! YEAH!!

Today I'm feeling more in control and a lot better. I've lost all of the weight I gained on my vacation and then some. My body is feeling so much better, I don't feel like a stuffed sausage anymore. Whew, that was miserable! Calories are right where they should be. Exercise is not so good yet, as my back is still hurting. I had a great day yesterday and I think I over did it. Today it was really painful!

Tomorrow I go to the hospital for tests. I've had some issues with my ears and I was diagnosed with vertigo a while back. I also have some tingling and pressure above my right eye....So I get to go for 2 MRI's tomorrow. Woo hoo for me....They are doing one MRI on my ears and one on my facial nerves. I had no idea you could have 2 MRI's in one day. It's going to take over 3 hours. Pray for me!

Fall is here in Oregon. The weather is cool, the skies are cloudy and the trees are turning colors. I did not think I would be ready for this season change, as we've barely had a summer. But I have to say, that I am quite excited for fall...It's my favorite time of year! I love the smells, cozy fires, pumpkin patches, pumpkins, scarecrows, candles, fall decorations, pumpkin bread ~ did I just say that? Anyway, I love it!

This malware thing is getting on my nerves. I've had to delete a couple of people from my blog, as I kept getting the warning message. Please don't be offended!! If you get the issue taken care of, let me know and I will add you back. Sorry it's a pain!!

Today I went to two stores. At each one, I saw 3-4 people in wheelchairs. I mean really big people. It was sooooo sad to see them, trapped in a chair, unable to maneuver in the aisles. I saw this one lady, kind of get trapped in the check out line, between her wheelchair and a cart. How frightening is that to be trapped? I so prayed for their health to be restored! That is no way to live for sure!

Take care my Friends...Keep fighting the good fight...Don't quit!! 

Stay focused!


  1. Yay about the pants, although your daughter might not agree haha. ;) Best of luck with the MRIs tomorrow! I love fall too, cardigans and scarves and leaves, oh my. :)

  2. Best of luck to you with your medical tests. I also see a lot more obese people in mechanical chairs, because they can't walk. I don't want to be one of them, so like you, I keep fighting the good fight! Glad you're feeling better.

  3. First, Yay for the nearly in your daughters pants!! How cool is that?!?

    Next, I know exactly what you mean about wanting to somehow help people that are so big and their health is so poor. Honestly there is nothing that we can do though, I know I would have been offended if someone had tried to "help" me when I was 270 lbs. We can only send good thoughts their way that they find a way around their weight problem. Good post!

  4. I love fall too! I love pumpkins and the smells of apple pies and pumpkin spice and the colorful leaves. It is so beautiful in Oregon in the fall too! You'll have to post some pics for me.

    I've had vertigo and it's horrible! Sheesh! I hope you get it all figured out and get some answers when you do finally get in for those MRI's. I can't believe how much you'd had to go through. You are a trooper!

    Hang in there my friend!
    God bless...
