Unable to take walks

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

I still have one month before I have a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon about the much needed hip replacement surgery. I can no longer walk for any length of time just short distances. I am fully ready to have the hip surgery that was recommended last year. Please pray for me because God is my strength.


When you weigh more than you expected.

Monday, January 16, 2012

This morning I got on the scales and weighed 2 pounds more than my last weighing. I felt that I would have lost at least 1 pound and got a slap in the face. Very disappointing to say the least. I wanted to cry. But instead I decided to track breakfast and walk a little longer this morning. Now I have set a goal to walk every day that I can. I have a hip that is degenerating and it gives me pain even with meds, but I am not unable to walk. I will therefore keep on walking while I still can. emoticon


Weighing every day!

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
Maybe it's bad if your weight goes up a pound and you get a little discouraged.
Maybe it's good if you have strayed a little and you see that it goes up some and get back on track.
But when the weight stays the same for a while, that's when frustration sets in.
I just need to find a happy medium.
I don't want to give in to food.
I eat healthy most of the time so i will keep plugging along.
It will come off eventually.
I really need to stay on track with the calories because my OA keeps me from walking very long or burning off any extra calories.
That is what I need to do. Keep the calories in check.
I will reach my goal and learn how to keep control of portions for the right amount of calories for me.

I really do not like to procrastinate. So therefore I don't. Everyone that I talked to about loosing weight said , why not wait till after Christmas. I reasoned that if I waited til after Christmas to start my life change I would be putting off what needs to be done to make me happy. I knew that if I could manage to be strong through the festivities it would only make me believe in myself more.
I am so glad that I didn't procrastinate. I am feeling better about myself and can move a little easier allready. I have made myself a promise that if I get off track on this journey I will use my GPS, SP to get back on and keep going . I will meet my goal and go for more and always keep my eyes on the end results. A better life til the end. emoticon


Going to wait.

Friday, January 06, 2012

I was tempted to buy some new knee length pants today with my Christmas money from my husband. Then I said to myself, "you are determined to loose this extra weight, so why not wait and get something that will fit after the weight is gone". So, that is what I am going to do. i will put the money away until i reach at least half of my goal. emoticon

    I understand that! There's no sense in spending good money on clothes you're not going to be in for long!! I want to loose 5 sizes though, so I am going to have to replenish my closet every so often. Stores like Ross, thrift stores, and online clearances (seriously go check out JC Penny's online clearance!!! emoticon) will be my besties for a while!
