WVRose/ Ruthie's Weight Loss Journey

I'm a lifetime WW member, who continues to lose and gain the same weight over and over. It's crazy to live like this, but it's the story of my life. I still keep a lot of my healthy habits, like giving up diet soft drinks for water and whole wheat bread and pasta. I eat healthy and stay on track through the week, but I struggle with weekends. I also binge eat sometimes which can result in gaining back every thing I lost through the week. I haven't quite figured out why I sabotage myself. I ...

I also binge eat sometimes which can result in gaining back every thing I lost through the week. I haven't quite figured out why I sabotage myself. I think losing weight is so much more than just watching what you eat. You have to figure out what caused you to get this way and then turn it around to prevent the cycle. I'm still working on that!

Hi Ruthie! How are you doing? How did your doctor appt go? I hope your pain is down to nothing now, I've been praying for you.

I am doing well. I started my streak over again but I really think its going to click this time. Today was day two and I did NOT want to workout...but I did. I did NOT want to stay on track with my eating...but I did it anyway. Tonight I am feeling so proud of myself. I know this streak will last a long time, I have that feeling!

Oh yes, I do hear from Arlene sometimes. She and I and the other original co-leaders had a private team for us to discuss things we wanted to do on the team (games, different threads, the challenges, etc). After Lori died, we re-named the team "Spark Sisters." We check in from time to time. Arlene no longer has a working computer, and its hard for her to post on her phone, but she checks her page when she can. I sure miss the days when she and Lori and Debbie and GG and Hicalgal were the team leaders. Thank God for the new team leaders, though. They are doing great, and I enjoy being a member of the team.

Sorry so chatty! Have a great rest of the week!
Hugs,
Pixie

Hiya Ruthie! Hope your day was a good one and that your week has gotten off to a wonderful start. How are you feeling today? I hope the pain is lessening as the days go by, and that you can get off the pain pills soon! That is awesome that your husband is helping out with the cooking and cleaning. He's obviously a keeper!
I am praying for you, my friend!
Hugs,
Pixie

Hi Ruthie! Thank you for the lovely rose goodie. That is so wonderful that you and your hubby have been together for 40 years! On, and that is cool that the accordian player played Bella Nolte for you. I didn't think that sort of thing happened outside of movies. (Can you tell I don't get out much? LOL.)

So happy that your recovery is going well. Five weeks...the time is flying! Are you bored being home from work, or are you enjoying it? I hope that by the time you go back you are feeling 100 percent great!

Have a fabulous Friday. I am going out to lunch with my sons tomorrow...and I will stay on track!
Hugs,
Pixie
