'Lose Weight', doctor's orders

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Went to my gyn for my yearly exam. He noticed that I had gained 17 lbs since last year. I've never gained this much in my ups-and- downs.
I'm a yoyo exerciser. Just eating healthy isn't enough to help me fit into my jeans. Inches count.
I told the doctor that he should say something to my husband. He usually does the meal planning and buying. I'm no angel though. I don't have will power when it comes to saying 'no' to junk food. I even bringing it in myself. Sometimes he'll talk me out of it, but now he knows we have to be serious about meal planning etc.
I told my mom we're going to have to eat healthy. I put her bag of chocolate donuts in her room so they wouldn't be in the pantry staring me in the face when I open the door.
Baked Lays Potato Chips is a big problem as is chocolate.
I have determination now, just hope it stays.
We're having accountability partners on BLC#12. I need someone like Jillian Michaels, pushy, determined, firm, but kind. Someone to keep me on task. They know what I need to do and see that I do it. I need a personal coach!
I can be that way for someone else, just not me.
Anyhow, I know I will be in shape for next doctor in March. Bloodwork in Feb, so need to eat healthy to get cholesterol in order.

    You can do it, Courti! You know what to do! You DO want to live a longer, healthier life. Think of that every time a chocolate donut or a Bakes Lays chip comes into view. Are they so good that they are worth your health? I'm thinking your answer is going to be a resounding, "NO!!" You're strong--you can do it! It's for your future!

    You can do this, no matter what your hubby does or doesn't do! You are stronger than you think you are, and you can beat this! Make it work for you. We're all here with you too, when you need a helping hand!

    I thought I had it rough until I came across your page. I am 4'10" and weighed a whopping 126 when my dr said lose weight NOW! I did but I gained it back, then I lost it, then I gained it back,.... you get the picture. I'm now (as of this morning - but not official on my weigh-in until Monday) at 120.8. I generally can lose to 115 or so but not much below or if so not for long. I think I actually hit 113 last summer but it was fleeting. How on earth do you go below 110? How do you get to 110? Do you still eat 1200 calories a day? or less? How much do you exercise? I need your expert advice:)

  As with everything, we must take responsibility for our own choices, however; it will be much easier for you to get healthy if your husband gets on board, too.

I started by asking my husband how long he wants me to live and then telling him that the doctor says I'll live longer if I lose weight. Therefore, if he wants me to live longer, I have to lose weight, and I'll lose more weight faster if he doesn't sabotage me.

That got his attention.

I also reminded him that he quit smoking because I don't smoke. If I'd been a smoker, he couldn't have quit, and I can't be healthy if he's unhealthy.

Having a good day. Took mom for bloodwork on the community coach. (has wheelchair lift. Did some work around the house and made pumpkin bread for company.

I posted some of this on team post. I need to strive to cut back on Facebook. It is a good site for communicating with long lost friends/family but can get addicted.

I found a cousin I didn't even know I had. Her name was the same as another cousin. Ended up she was my cousin's granddaughter. Found an old co-worked I haven't spoken with in over 20 years. I feel like trying to find more people I've lost contact, that is the good part about FB.

Don't get too involved with the applications, and if you do, only pick one or two, not 6. It is very time consuming, if you let it and I have.

I will be starting my new session with Biggest Loser #12 next week and want to make a good showing and make some progress. I did very poorly on last one. Never really lost any weight or inches and didn't take the exercises seriously. I do want to get back into shape and eat healthy. I need to change my attitude and temper etc. I get moody and impatient. Not good.

I want a new start and want to start it with BLC#12 on Jan. 13.

A new year, a new start

Friday, January 01, 2010

A new year, a new start. I've exercised and kind of ate semi-healthy. Hey better than I've done in the past.
I went up to my highest weight ever, a couple days ago, 113.

I'm afraid that is what happens a lot, especially around the holidays....Courti !
Keep up your exercising, and good eating....and you will be getting back on the
right track, and down to your weight goal ! I can tell you this, because I will do
the same ! Together we will win !!!! I am proud of you for taking that a new
start, my friend !!! emoticon

Frustrated, Mad, Perturbed...you name it!

I feel like running away and living by myself. That is the only way I will be able to eat healthy. Now that my mom lives with us, she has wants (in the food category), that I find tempting. I don't have much in the line of will power.

She asked for a box of cup cakes the other day. Now she wants a 5 lb box of chocolates. We use to get them every year at Christmas, when I was a kid up north.

How can I eat healthy with people who don't care are tempting me.

I don't have anyone who will pull rank and make me do my exercises. Okay, I'm a grown up and should be able to make myself do them, but I don't.

I make my mom do her exercises, after much argument, buat can't make myself do any unless I'm trying to do a team challenge. I use to do about an hour of exercises a day, now I'm lucky to get 10 min in.

I'm very frutstrated right now because she just asked for the candy. Maybe I should have waited a while before typing this blog, but then I probably would have cooled off and it wuld have never been typed.

I can't fit into my jeans, still. Tried to put a pair on before going out today, couldn't button them.

To think, in April I weighed 95 lbs, then went up to Ohio to help my mom pack up and move down here. I lost all momentum to exercise. ( I didn't have my equipment up there). Forget about eating healthy.

Now I weight around 110. I'm only 4'8", so don't think that is a good weight. When you can't button your pants, that is a bad weight.

I guess it is really the inches, not the weight. Most of the inches are in my hips. I feel fat, fat, fat.

Type it out instead of fuming about a problem.

    My mom has gets around on a walker but sometimes needs help out of her chair, which is a chair that lifts her up, but I still have to opporate the remote. She wouldn't be able to keep the candy any where where she can get to it herself. She would just complain about having to get it herself. Thanks anyhow.

I can really feel your pain, my dear ! I can't have anything tempting around
either ! Can't your mom hide them somewhere that only she would know where
they are ? It would make it a whole lot better for you ! Try with all your might
to keep it out of your mind ! Good luck to you.....and keep in touch with us !!

    Wow... that is very frustrating. I cannot have food like that in my house either. I just have no control. Can she keep this bad food in her own area so you are not tempted? (not that your mom probalby needs to eat a 5lb box of candy by herself anyway...nobody does).

Today, I challenge you to do 30 minutes of exercise. Report to me when you are finished :).
