Well, I ate just a little less oatmeal this morning, forgot my banana but am about to have a plum as a snack. Good for you for keeping on going. Is that your horse? I love horses, but have never owned one.

I want to encourage you to keep trying. Everyday do some one thing that is in the right direction even if you can't do it all. Put down one dessert that you were about to eat. Skip the fries. Take one flight of stairs. It doesn't have to be a big thing, it just has to reaffirm mentally that you are still focusing on fitness.

I've been recovering from health and illness issues for 7 years. I kept trying. Now, finally I'm on the other side and going like gangbusters. If this old grandma can do it, so can you. Little by little, bit by bit...but never lose hope, never lose focus. ((((hugs))))

Hey Steve,

Just checking in to see how you're doing. I hope you're well and getting back on track. I've lost just a 'tad' bit more weight,,,,,I'm counting 1/2 pounds at this point but it's progress! Getting ready for Thanksgiving and we'll be having dinner with my sweeties family. I'm looking forward to it!

Well, I spent about 10 hours painting over the weekend. I'll have to weigh myself at the end of this week. We do eat out a lot, but I don't think I consume all that 'much' but we shall see. I have to try to lose at least 2 more pounds before we go to the RailRoad Christmas Dinner on 12/9....I am looking forward to it though!

Thank you Barb, I....I'll still be here I have too. I have to find my focus again. I was just thrown a major curve ball and i got nailed in the head, so-ta-speak, lol.

I'm still working on it, so with luck I'll be able to get active again.

Again thank you

I'm sorry to say but, this may be my last post for some time. I have had some issues concerning myself and well just life in general, and so I've had to make a decision. And part of that decision will no longer give me a reason to post because I won't be having anything positive to say. Yes from time to time life simply sucks, but we all have to make a choice whether it's a good one or a bad one. Life will go on :(

I do wish you all the best on your weight loss, and I wish you one simple thing. Don't give up, unless you have no other choice. Fight to the bitter end.

Ya, mountain bikes are just that designed to be ridden in the mountain or hills (off road) with the knob-tires there is just a lot more drag in the ride and it makes for a much tougher ride. lol, so, I'll be getting a bit for of a work out then I was hoping for. lol,

I think i'm ready though. I've syched my self out for the ride, and with luck I'll start it this after noon after work and my kids soccer. So, until then.....

OOo, before I forget nice job on loosing the two pounds. I don't even want to get on a scale right now. lol,

Well this weekend we went to Fort Ligonier Days. We watched the re-enactment (which really isn't one anymore because heaven forbid they might show what actually occurred!) and now Indians are called Native Allies....whooo boy. anyway it was great fun, good food - we had a hot sausage sandwich - and good live band entertainment. Walked about 3 hours on Saturday all told. I did lose 2 pounds this past week so that is improvement. I know what mountain bikes are, but don't know the difference in bikes at all. I'm presuming the mountain bike will not be as pleasant to ride as your normal bike?

I did take it easy the next day, and yesterday when I did my ride I felt great. At least until I was half way back home then my back rim blew out. I could not peddle because the back gears went out. :( So now I'm going to have to use my mountain bike on my rides. :( so not looking forward to this, but I have no choice. I have no money for a rim right now so I"m going to have to just suck it up and ride my mountain bike. :(

Congrats on not letting feeling bad hold you back! Sometimes, however, you need to take a break and rest a bit. Do a bit of that today. I'm sitting here at work munching on broccoli, carrots and green beans. Last night for dinner I did a no-no, but not a bad one. We had KFC. I had 1 piece of chicken, 1 small scoop of mashed potatoes with just a 'tad' of gravy, one biscuit and about 1/4 cup of coleslaw. So, not too bad. :-)

today was a bummer day. I have a massive stomach ache, my back hurt and my feet were killing me. I had no excuses today because I truly was hating life. :(

I got my shorts on grabbed my water bottle and did a short up hill ride. I thought I was going to die. It took me 33 min to go 5 miles up hill, yupper at least a 7%grade up hill. :( any way I did it. I still feel like crap but i didn't give up today...............

Thank you, we did have a great time. It was worth the pound I gained. lol, now i do hope your right in it leading to one pound at a time, but only time will tell. :)

It was my Cousin that I got to go riding with me, and your right she must love me enough to have gone on that ride. I was able to ride yesterday, it was just under 15miles but it was still a good ride.

I'm thinking now that i did last week the way I did, i think it will be better if i just went every other day and not 3-4 days in a row. I think that was a little to much for me, so I'm going to try and ride every other day

Hi Steve. I hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend with your wife! I'm sure it was special. I read where your sister came and rode with you even though it was cold and windy. She must love you very much to do something in weather that she doesn't particularly care for. You are a lucky man to have such a sister.

Also, congratulations on that additional pound lost! It IS a lot don't underestimate the loss of that one pound as it leads to the loss of another and yet another. I hope you get your rides started back up this week too. You take care and YOU GO GUY! emoticon

Well I was all happy Friday I did my weigh in and I dropped a whole pound. lol, I know it's not much but if i can do that every week I'll be ok. I forgot to make the change here on my goal marker, so when I got here this morning. *starts to cry* I gained the one pound back plus 4 more. *cries even more*. It was my fault, it was my wives birthday and we ate drank and had way to much fun. lol, so now this week i have to start all over again. I'm just hoping that i'm able to drop my original one pound plus one would make me happy when this friday hits.

Ok, I didn't do anything exercise because I was out of town for my wives B-day, so I'll start my rides again tonight. :) i hope. lol,

I'm glad I have this journal because I'm able to go back days or even weeks and see the struggles I have had and find or work out ways to get over my frustration(s), issues, laziness, weakness', and anything else that might be going on or even my accomplishments. And for me that is a huge plus because I can see the good I did, and know I can do that good again. I just need the time and patients to keep moving forward.

Do what i did, start off with short walks. You could even have the little ones go with you. It will give you an excuse to start your exercise, and it will also get the little ones out of the house.

Thanks Steve. My biggest excuse is that I have no one to exercise with. I am working on making me a place in the house where I can exercise. My oldest grandson is taking a weight lifting class (required for football). I told my husband that we need to fix him a place to workout during the off season. I use to do weightlifting (a long time ago), but I'm thinking that maybe I'll start working out with Mike. It is a goal. Maybe we can even get the other 3 grandchildren involved (2 girls live with us and 2 boys live 3 blocks away). I'm glad to hear that you went ahead with your ride. Congrats!

Thank you so much SYLB, give it time you will get that your exercise program working for you. It's like to day, i spent all day trying to think of a way to get out of riding. but today i had some real legit ones. lol, ok, maybe in my mind they were legit. lol

the wind was in the high 30's to low 40's this evening and the temp dropped down to 50 so my main excuses were the wind and the cold. and my other main excuse was i had to get a hair cut and wouldn't be done until about 6pm so it would be dark by the time i started riding. lol.

I couldn't believe i was still trying to talk my way out of riding. So when i got off work i crossed my fingers and said, "I'll call my cousin and see if she wants to ride, and if she says yes I'll ride if she says no I wont'" I sooooooo had my fingers crossed for her to say no. But when I txted her and asked she had to go and say "Sure I'll be there at 6" OMG as my kid would say. I about died. For 1 she never rides in the wind, 2 she hates the cold, and 3 the most important she never rides when it's dark. so i called her thinking that I for sure would not have to ride.............

In the end we did my long ride just over 15 miles, and when I got home I was soooo grateful she said yes. so for tonight i owe it all to her. had she said NO! i would have stayed home ate BOM-BOMS and got fatter then i already am. :( not good.

But back to what you said SYLBA61, I want to thank you for your encouraging words. They mean a great deal to me. Every time I log in here and see post's such as the one you did, it gives me even more drive to keep moving forward.

Now that tomorrow is Friday, my weigh day. I just hope i didn't gain weight. lol, but well see. *cross fingers and toes and ears and eyes and anything else that will cross* lol

Steve, I read some (not all) of your journals on this site. I want to congratulate you on getting your exercise in (biking and running). I still have not started an exercise program. I just keep talking myself out of it. I know this is not good. I think it is great that even though you try to talk yourself out of exercise, you take it by the reins and continue on. Congrats on keeping on everyday.

Steve,

What area of the country do you and your family live in? I'm in PA and this week, thankfully the rain has STOPPED, will be nice. We should be able to get a couple of walks in this week sometime between running to see 'mom', watching the nephews play baseball and maybe painting dads house. Then there is the Steeler football game to watch. Hopefully they'll do something good this week. emoticon

Sounds like you had a pretty good ride and few excuses not to do it. How far did you go? I wish I could do that. We were talking about getting a couple of bikes next season hopefully. Right now it's just too busy with other stuff.

Well I did a ride to day and i soooooo did not want to. I just wanted to grab a drink and watch a movie. I had no desire to ride at all. in fact I tried to come up with ever reason not to ride. I did come up with a few good ones.

I had a stomach ache. (I kinda really did.....)
my back hurt (ya like that's ever going to go away)
it's just to cold, ooo and here I thought this was the best one,

in the end I did do my ride and I'm so glad i did. it was a bit cold but not bad. My little stomach ache went away. lol, and my back is just sore like my legs. lol

Now I just need to see what excuses I come up with tomorrow. LOL, wish me luck. :)

Well my life has certainly changed recently. I had been living with dad, and drinking quite a bit due to pure boredom. Dad passed away on 9/23 and I'm now living fulltime with my fiance. He doesn't drink....so neither do I!!!!!!! A huge plus and I'm already feeling a bit thinner! He also loves to walk and so do I.

Thanks BJ for the encouraging words. My wife and i are in the process of looking for a new bed. I'm thinking that just maybe that is my biggest problem right now. I sooooo hope this gives me the rest and motivation I'm in the need of.

My wife and i also walk in the evening when we can, but life has been so crazy and my motivation is 0 right now. I just need to find a way to get it back. :(

I really need this pain to go away, sooooo, and with luck by this weekend i'll find the motivation with our new bed. *cross fingers* and toes and anything else that will cross. lol,

Thanks again, BJ for giving me some motivate. :)

We all need good wishes Steve and I wish you luck as well. My fiance and I are walking in the evenings - about 30 minutes after we finish visiting his mom in the nursing home. I walk with a girlfriend 3 days a weel for 30 minutes at work as well. Do what you can....even 10 minutes several times a day adds up. I know I've got 50 pounds to lose. May not seem like much to some people but I'm only 5'3!

We'll be support for each other. I congratulate you on your bike riding. That's something that we want to start in the future....don't know when, but at some point! emoticon

As for me. well same crap, I can not seem to get my self motivated and its driving me crazy. I am at least walking or riding 3 days a week, but its not enough. :( I want to be motivated at least 5 days a week. GRRRRRRRR

This looks like a good place to blog. I haven't been on SP in way too long. I had lost 15 pounds last fall and promptly put it back on when I filed for divorce. Ah well....anyway, last fall I was walking into work 2 miles every morning, walking 1/2 hour 3 days a week with my girlfriend and watching my food intake. Ergo, 15 pounds lost....divorce+overeating/drinking = weight gain......I have to lose 50 pounds. I should only weigh about 135 but due to my errors in life weigh much more than that. I'm only 5'3 too. Anyway, my boyfriend and I have started walking 1 mile every evening (when I'm over there with him) after visiting his mom who is in a nursing home. I've also sent for the DASH diet as that helps people with hypertension (which we both are), overweight people and those with diabetes (which he has)....so, hopefully that will help with my intended weight loss. Wish me luck. I'll keep you informed of my progress. I also have to re-weigh myself so my weight loss that will show up here is off by about 6 pounds (in the 'up' direction emoticon )

Kayakgirl, I wish I could get up early, but I have trouble going to sleep at night. I'll try to get to bed earlier, but not sure if it will happen. I know how you feel though, a morning work out does make the day go so much better, and maybe if I did do this my pain level wouldn't be so bad during the day. Hummmmm, a thought to seriously think.

thanks to you both 4Barbie and Kay for the good insight and advice.

4Barbie, Ooooo please don't tell me I'm going to have to deal with this pain now for over a year. *cries* I'm sorry you have had to deal with it for so long, I feel your pain. I don't know how much more I can take this. :( Since this past Wednedsay I have been having some bad days with the pain, but I'm dealing with it. And so far my walks have been helping but I can only walk for so long and so far. And once I stop the pain comes back. :( Soon, soon I do hope it goes away, so for now, as my kids says. "Suck it up butter cup" lol, there is nothing else i can do.

I hear you on the motivation... I set my alarm for an hour early everyday and go to the gym. There have been a few days where i reset the alarm and went back to bed. I always feel so much better after working out in the morning which has become my motivation for getting put of bed. It sets the tone for the whole day when i work out in the mornong as i am feeling good and dont want to screw it up ny making unhealthy choices.

Hello- I know it isn't easy to get motivated, especially when you are in pain. I had spinal cord surgery, and I also had fusion in my neck, and I must say that the bone graph of the hip is extremely painful. It seems that is more painful than the surgery on my neck, It does take along time to get better, it has been 1 and a half years for me, and I am still waiting to get better. I hope you are doing better. I found that walking helps, and in some instances, I have to push myself to do it, Feel free to friend me, and let me know how you are doing

Thank you for inspiring words. It's not easy, and I have to truly push myself every day. I just need to make sure i keep it up. I want to be some what skinny again. lol, i'll be very happy at 250-240. But all i can do now is go one day at a time and just hope for the best.

Well it seems it has been some 10-11 months since I have posted or even been back. :( So, i'll give a very short update on how things have been.

I ended up having surgery on my back, the pain was just to much for me any more. :( they fused my L-5 to my C-1 and trimmed part of my L-4 and L-3 because both had been ruptured. As of today 9 weeks after my surgery my back feels great but now I'm having issues with my right thigh and right hip. When they did the bone graph on my hip i got a pocket of blood, and now the Dr. said it will be 6 to 10 months before it is fully healed because the blood is going into my thigh. :( great one pain to another.

I am walking about 2-4 miles a day, and 2 weeks ago i was given the ok to ride my bike, just no mountain riding. So the days I don't walk i've been riding my bike. And so far I am up to 12 miles. Not a hard fast ride just a causal ride to help build my back and legs and with luck to get rid of this bloody pain in my hip and thigh. I just hope it goes away. I'm still having to take the pain pills in the evening, but for the most part I am doing much better.

Well now that I am back on the road to recover I am going to start posting here again and with luck i'm hoping to start loosing the weight again. I know for the last 6 months I thought I had gained weight, but when i looked at my weight scale here I have lost a few more pounds from when I was last here. So, Yahooooooo I didn't gain any weight.

I'm glad I came back it's good to read all the struggles people are going through, and I'm not the only one. lol

How sad is this, it looks like the last time I logged in was mid-December. :( the funny part is I always think about Sparkpepole.com, but yet i have not been by. I'm still in a slump, I've done very little in exercie. Mainly because of my back, and now I'm looking at surgery in the very near future. I'll find out for sure on the 1st. :( Any way just wanted to post that I was infact still alive, and once I get that motovation back, I"ll Be back.

Okay Steve, let's back up a little. Did you ever check in w/ your Dr about exercise? If not, then do that. And I think maybe jogging here at first was too much to ask of the bod. I walked for a lonnngggg time before I ever did any jogging, and I still usually walk--a fast walk, but I consider it a walk, still. So walk, and bike. Don't expect to run at first if you haven't been a runner. Work up to that level over time. Walking is wonderful exercise! Have you ever seen any Leslie Sansone workouts? They incorporate walking-type movements along with kicks, etc. You can do them in your home. Search her out on youtube or at walkathome.com and see if those might work for awhile. There are even a couple of Leslie teams here on SP. Don't give up on yourself or on us here at SP. Be determined, persistent, and consistent, just start out a bit slower than what you thought at first. Okay??? Okay.

I haven't been on in some time, and well I think it's because I've made a choice. Ok,, I hope for only a little bit, my choice was tooooo be fat forever. ;(

Ok, I don't but I have no motivation in my life right now and it simply sucks. I think I've figured out that I can not longer go jogging. ;( I did for two weeks and my back was in pain the whole time. I was hoping it would go away, but it only got worse so I stopped and that's why I figured I'd be fat for ever. ;(

Ok, so now. I'm thinking I dont' want to be. Maybe I'll just walk and ride my bike, maybe even start swimming again. I don't know I just need to find some motivation first before I get to bag I have to use a humaround to move my fat arse. ;(

Sorry, I'm just...........

Well....I just don't know right now.

I'll be back,

Ciao

thank you Farmgirl, I'll take your word for it. In fact I did a little over a 16 mile bike ride today, my legs are killing me but I feel so much better. :) I was going to run, but I figured I'd start to mix it up a little bit. :)

Moderation, now that is indeed a good code word.

Steve, think about this...if you don't make a choice, you're still making a choice.

Also, on the trivia quizzes, one of the questions I've had a couple times is about back pain. They say bed rest is NOT a good way to get it healed. Do at least a little every day. Then you can start to build. For a long time, I never wanted to count calories and exercise every day either, but I've come to the realization that that's the only way for me to have a healthy lifestyle at a healthy weight. So, I guess I've finally "grown up" and I'm doing it--for my own good.

Happy Thanksgiving Week! Moderation, my friend, is the code word this week.

Thank you Fairy, I did or I do feel so much better. and my back don't hurt like it does when I don't exercise. Like to day, I wanted to double check to see how my back would feel if I didn't do any exercise, and needless to day, I'm hurting. so, I've decided to make a choice. I can go two ways I can stop the exercise and let my back heal, and with luck not feel as much pain. Or, I can get off my ass and start back up tomorrow and either run, bike or swim every day. the good or bad part about this choice is I'll have to do it for ever.

I hate choices, but then, as I look around SP and all the choices every one here make on a daily basis, I'm thinking the choice I have to make is pretty simple. Exercise and loose the weight.........

Again, thank you Fairy. I just read your page, and wow! It truly pays off when you want it, you look great with the 50 you have lost. Thank you and every one else for the inspiration, I need it, I need it bad....

Hey Steve, I hope your jog has helped you with sleeping. I have found that on my intense exercise days that I sleep really well. I used to have a lot of back pain too - I bet with the more exercise you do, you'll feel way better. Keep up with making yourself get out there even when you don't feel like it. Have a great Thanksgiving week!

I couldn't help but notice that my spark fitness minutes for the year is 1800, and as of today i have hit 2416. WOW! now my only hope is to keep this up.

Yesterday I didn't do anything, I was feeling sore and tired and just didn't want to do anything and my back was killing me. Last night I wish I would have went for a jog or for a bike ride because I couldn't sleep. My back was killing me so bad I wanted to die. I was up tossing and turning until around 3 or a little later and I had to be up by 6:30 for work. I was hurting.

So today Thursday I went for my 2 mile jog and I feel sooooooo much better, I'm just hoping I'll be able to get to sleep, and that's were I'll be going here in a few minutes. I just wanted to make a comment or two here.

Well I guess that's it for now,

Ooooooo Farmgirl I sent you a little something because i noticed that you reached your goal. I'm hoping to say the same thing by my birthday this coming May.

More then anything I want this back pain to go away, and I'm thinking if I loose the weight it just might happen. *cross fingers*

Ciao for now

I don't mind at all, it fact I'm glad you barged in. More people should barge in on these journals, it's a good way to let us know were doing good. As I always say the more the merrier. :)

And thank you very much Farmgirl

I did it again. I just finished jobbing 2 miles, but this time it was harder then I was expecting. It took me just over 25 minutes, but i'm up 3 minutes from yesterday.

The sad part is I thought all day about how I could get out of jogging today, but then I thought maybe I'll just go for a bike ride. But even that I didn't want to do. So when I got home I quickly changed and walked out the door so I couldn't give myself the time to convince myself not to go. And now that I'm done, my lungs are killing me, my legs and back hurt, but I do feel better about the run. I guess it's a good hurt. lol. I hope, well see.

Now the question is how will I do tomorrow. I was thinking of taking the day off to rest, but I know me. If I stop I won't start again for at least a week or to. It happens every time I want to take a day off.

as I said in the last one, here's to this journal, and again let's see how long I can keep this up. :)

well I ran 2 miles yesterday, but it took every thing I had just to get out and do it. it took me close to 30 minutes, but I did it and only walked a little a couple times. So, I think I did better then I thought I would. I'm going to try it again tonight, or I might just go for a bike ride because my legs are killing me. lol, Go figure, we'll here's to this journal. lets see how long I can keep this up.

To bad I can't just blink and be skinny, lol now that would be coo. Maybe I'll go see if I can find me a magic lap and call a gene. lol

Ciao,

I wrote this on my page, but I thought I would put it here better.
you know my biggest problem is motivation. I've been riding a street bike the last few days, but it's been hell trying to get the motivation to simply get out and do it, and now with the time change it's even harder.

To day I was going to come home and eat a light meal then go for a ride, well,..... It started out like that, but then I had a flat tire. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR, yes i got frustrated but then I said the hell with it, so I fixed the flat. Once I was done I was going to have a mixed drink and say forget the ride. Who knows what got into me, I said f'it and just put on my coat and jumped on my bike and left the house, I didn't even realize I didn't even grab my water bottle until I had rode 2 miles.

In the end I rode only, just under 10 miles, but the ride felt great. In fact I was just under 5 miles out when I realized my tire was only half full. LOL, go figure, so at my turn around point I found a gas station and was able to fill the tire up.

The ride back was great.........But is simply sucked because I was alone......... oooooooo well it was a good ride any way. I'm hoping to get my cousin to ride with me, but well see.

I bought me another head light because with the time change I'm riding in the dark. By the time I leave the house it's already dark, and cold, but I forced myself to ride any way.......

On a side note I'm glad I was introduced to this site because I can vent and read about all the struggles people have trying to loose weight. It's nice to know I'm not the only one with weight issues, and the struggles trying to loose it. I just hope one day I'll be able to be down to 240 or even a little less. I'm so tired of having back problems, and I know my main back problem is my weight. grrrrrrrrrrr.

ok, i'm done venting about my, motivation issue. I just need to get my arse in gear and simply do it, and I know in the end I'll feel better. I just wish it wasn't so dam hard to loose weight. I'm soooooooooo tired of looking in the mirror and seeing a fluffyboy, as I call it. I wan'na see a slim back pain free person again I don't know I guess I can hope it happens.........................
