About Me

I am a young looking 61 year old woman whose life has drastically changed since July 20, 2008.  My husband of 32 years suddenly passed and three months later I had 3 stents put in my heart which eventually ended up in open heart double bypass surgery in September 2009.   I am a Spiritual Leader of a new pioneering church community which started in January 2008, it was at the church picnic my husband had his heart attack.

  I have continued to be as positive as I can, especially since our Unity belief is you "create your own world" with your thoughts and intentions, and know and believe the power of positive thinking.   Although I stay positive for my church community, and my 3 daughters, I often feel very empty and lonely.  I am trying to learn to be "alone" without begin lonely. 

  I also have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes since 2003 and having a challenge getting it controlled as well as high blood pressure, cholesterol and triglicerides.

  I know in addition to eating foods that aren't that healthy, my emotions and pain (also have two bulging discs being pressed by arthritic bone, that acts up now and then) can drive my sugar up more.  I also have had trouble breathing well, get out of breath very easily, since my heart surgery.  I was walking and before the surgery going to a gym, however now I feel I don't have the breath or energy needed.  I have a nuclear stress test and my heart is functioning as it should!  My heart doctor is thinking perhaps my breating issue is more gastrial.  I have not followed up with a gastrial doctor yet.

 Although I sound like a physical and emotional mess, I appear healthy to most, keep a positive outlook for others. and look much younger than my age.  Having said that, I know I am in of need help to get into positive health, emotional and physical. 

  I love synchronicity,I think it shows when Divine order is working in our lives.  I saw earlier this week that  Dr. Phil presented the 17 Day Diet.  I decided right then and there, to get online and order it.   I happened to catch your show today at the very end, and saw you had the 17 Day Diet also on your show and invited home viewers to join in the diet with those contestants chosen to be on your show.  At the VERY moment I received your email activating my membership, the UPS man came and delivered my book and CD to my door!!

   I don't need to do this alone, and decided I needed to make the movement to be part of it. 

   I look forward to becoming more healthy, physically and emotionally.

I did receive an email immediately after paying for the book (ordering) and i paid for the rush shipping.  Wish I hadn't.  :)   They sent an email with a UPS tracking number on Jan 11th.  But UPS says "we do not have possession of this package" but they have record of the label being printed.  :)

I know that I am supposed to stay away from carbs?? and drink green tea? and warm lemon water?? And eat a yogurt I have not found in any local store ....

Please feel free, if you have time, to give me some pointers.  My internet has been down, so was unable to stay online,and for a few days, could not get on at all.   I hope you are ALL doing well, thanks for the messages and words of encouragement.  It really does help!

I would check on it because I got an email right away about it.

I can give you like the first couple days here in comment if you need?

 

Ah yes, parties, sure do mess with us, huh?  Luckily I am not so much a "sweet" eater, as salt and butter I miss.

 I slacked Sat and Sun on my 17 minute workout, going to get on it today....execise is a bit tough for me at times, and they are fun ones.

  Keep on keeping on!

Well, the party yesterday for my kids, Let's just say I didn't follow my diet! :)  Tomorrow I am on the wagon again!  I will write more to you tomorrow.  Good for you and sticking to it.  I do not have the book yet, and no email regarding them shipping it.  I hope it's soooon!

 Hey Calee,

   Did you get your book yet?   I have been doing so well, that my sugar level for my diabetes are getting toooo

low because I'm not eating any carbs (last reading 68)....so I had about half cup potato soup to get sugar level back  up.   I need to call my diabetic doc Monday, as I'm not quite sure how to handle this.  I obviously am not taking my insulin when it is so low.

  Spent about an hour in the store finding everything, and $164 later (college daughter also throwing stuff in my basket) I came home stocked up.

 

  I have enjoyed everything so far, except the egg whites, ugh!

You are ahead of me and I have the book!!  I have been playing computer games, need to get off and start reading.  Thanks for the prompt. 

Caleemom

HI!  Yes, I read your profile.  I wish you the best on your new challenge.  I will look forward to keeping up with your journey.  I don't have my book yet, but I've been reading some tips on these blogs.  I will start my morning tomorrow with a warm glass of water with lemon.  And then have Green tea, instead of my usual coffee.
