well I had spare ribs, baked potatoes, veggies and asparagus for supper tonight and i weighed out each thing but my veggies took up 3/4s of my plate which i do every day. I love my veggies. I am trying to cut back on the size of meat I eat. I get my protein from nuts which is good for me.

I am going to start to do my exercises again because I have an appointment with my new ortho surgeon on July 10. I have never met him before and i dont know what to expect. I am kind of scared to meet him. I know I should take it with pride and concern but when it comes to my legs I get worried.

exercise is going to be a big part of my life from now on because I want to lose atleast 75 lbs before November. so my big brother can see me as skinny again. I have seen him in 10 years come November 10. That is the day God took my oldest brother to heaven with him

I know it's been awhile since i was in last but I have been very bus lately because I have so much going on in my life. I have been walking more and I made it to 4 miles yesterday. I walked and walked and didn't stop because if I do then the weight won't come off. I want to see myself in the mirror in 2 months time and see the results of me losing the weight. so far I have lose 3 lbs from walking and eating 3 meals a day.

My day starts at 6:30 am and it doesn't end until 1:00 am the next morning. I do everything I can to lose weight and so far it is working. I will work hard at it without fail. I am no quitter and I want the same thing as everyone else does. I want to show everyone that I have reached my goal through perseverance and determination. I will be posting a new post in this thread every week to let you all know how I am doing.

Hi

I haven't been myself for the past few weeks and now i have hit depression mode again. I can't seem to get out of it and I feel like giving up on everything.
Have you ever felt like you are being treated like a slave in your own home by your family and when you ask them for some help they just get mad at you and call you names. That is what it is like for me. I don't get any help and am always being treated like a slave to my family. I wait on them hand and foot but when i ask them to do anything for me they get mad. I don't know how to handle it anymore and I feel so alone. My depression is so out of control right now and all i want to do is run away and hide somewhere so they cant find me.

My diet is out of wack as well and I gained 15 lbs back again. now I weigh 225.9 lbs and I need to lose it fast. I am planning on going for a walk and try to clear my head but I know what will happen with that. my family will come looking for me like they always do. So lost and confused no where to go and no where to turn.

So far this month I have done alot of things that help me reach my goals and they are
I walk 3 times a day and get in about 2000 steps each time and I have also started to drink green tea and eat healthy foods, I exercise 4 times a day and do chair dancing and chair exercises as well. I want to be able to reach my goal weight of 130 lbs by July 31 2014. If I can do it I will be very happy. I want to also start taking pictures of myself at the end of each month as I lose weight.
I know I can do this and I am even starting the 17 day diet next month which is great because I have a few friends on here and in facebook who is going to do it with me. So wish us good luck and wish me more good luck because I am going to need it big time

So far I have been going through the day as if I had my head cut off because I didnt know what to do today but when I looked at my house I knew exactly what to do so I set aside a few hours today to do some much needed house work and then some laundry because it is piling up on me again. I even managed to get in an 2 hour walk and workout today, Which made me feel alot better because I can finally walk without my legs bothering me.

I even managed to get in some weight lifting today and now my arms feels so sore. I have plans of doing the same thing again tomorrow because I have to try and keep myself busy so I wont go crazy. I have so much house work to do and I have to try and get it all done before the end of this month. My birthday is at the end of March and I will be turning 45. I hate to see it when that day comes because easter falls on my birthday this year.

My week will be all house work and working out so I wont have anytime to sit around now which is okay with me because i love to be active all the time. When the snow goes and it starts to warm up I plan to get out side and walk more. My little pomarian loves to walk as well and when i go for walk i will take her with me for company since i have no one to walk with in my little community.

I didn't make it around the block yet because I don't want to over do it yet but I did manage to talk a walk today and made it to the gravel road a mile up the road. I felt good and my leg only hurt a little bitt but that is okay because practice makes perfect the way I see it,

I am going to go out again tomorrow and this time try and make it to the bridge which is about 2 miles away and if I can do that then I can go farther each day after that, I want this so bad that it hurts to know that if I fail then I will give up and I know that is not what I want to do so I am not going to think that way anymore, As long as I have my cane then I can make it no matter what.

I am starting tomorrow and going for a much needed walk around the block if I can and if my legs can handle the walk this time. I have to start walking more and trying to tighten up my inner thighs because I can see the fat hanging in the upper part of the inner thigh. I want to be able to walk like I use to even though I have to walk with a cane now but to me it doesnt matter how I walk but how long I can keep it up and I am determined to go on this journey with my head held high and my mind focused on my main goal and that is to lose weight once and for all

Yes I do sweetie, and I am not going to let anyone get me sown because I want to succeed in this and I will succeed because I have the determination and the motivation to. I was born with Asthma and I want to keep it under control forever. I also want to be able to walk down the street without getting out of wind. People say when you are a smoker you have a hard time doing things but for me I never have a hard time because I look inside my heart and see what I want and I go for it

I have been slacking off when it comes to smoking because my boyfriend is making it hard for me but next week i will be back on track, I want to do this and I need to be successful at it because my Asthma as been acting up more now then before,

I have started exercising again and I am trying to do my zumba again as well but it is hard when I cant stand to long on my right leg right now. I will do it soon and when I do my family better look out because I will be a cleaning machine then and when that happens I will then lose the weight that I want to because I want my big brother to see his skinny sister again and he comes home in March

Eshara43 here posting again to let you all know that I am doing great on trying to quit smoking and in the past 5 days i had a total of 6 cigarettes whichis good because i use to smoke 6 a day.

On other notes I am still losing weight and I want to lose it fast because I feel that I have a lot of energy to burn. I am going to start again tomorrow and do another 30 to 60 minutes of zumba and 120 minutes of fitness with my exercise ball and weights. I want to be able to step on the scale at the end of this month and see the scale read below 200 lbs.

I am still eating 3 meals a day with a light snack in the evenings and I feel full. The day that I can finally take a picture of my belly and see the fat gone will be a total thrill for me

Hi, Eshara43 here again,,

I have been doing great so far, I do 30 minutes of Zumba each day now and I even do chair exercises to the music I have on my computer and I love it. My fitness levels are starting to come back now because I have to start tightening up the muscles around me new knee so that it will go straight when I walk.

I am going to start tomorrow morning by doing 60 minutes of zumba and 120 minutes of fitness and another 60 minutes of chair exercises. Then I will do 120 minutes of house work to get my house clean again. I am even going to start eating 3 meals a day again as if I am doing it now which I have been slacking off. I want to see more weight come off but I am still sitting in at 211.0 lbs and I know I should take it easy but I am so excited about getting back into my regular routine again that I dont care about the pain and i will work with it to get through it,

Hi everyone, just thought i will post and keep you all up to date with my weight loss progress, So far i have lost 35.9 lbs and have been keeping it off. I can finally start my fitness and zumba again. Which makes me very happy. I have to take it easy still and not over do it. I will start out tonight by doing 60 minutes of zumba followed by 120 minutes of fitness, I did a total of 240 minutes of house work yesterday.
I will be going to my mums today and while dinner is cooking i am going to get on her treadmill and walking because it is the only way i can right now. we have about 3 to 4 inches of snow on the ground and so i cant walk out side, I am still getting the pain in my leg from my knee running up to my inner thigh but it will pass in time.
Happy New Year to everyone and lets hope that 2013 will be a better year for everyone
