Down Another 1.4 Pounds This Week!

Friday, October 12, 2012

I'm pleased but also disappointed. My allergist put me on antibiotics and steroids for fluid in the sinus yesterday. (The inside of my nose was so swollen and red that I couldn't breathe) I gained .6 pounds over night. I weighed .6 pounds lower in the doctor's office yesterday before taking my medicine. I am pleased that I lost 1.4 pounds this week, but I worked out, measured, tracked and stayed in my range every day. I

I'll be patient and wait it out. It usually takes me forever to shed steroid weight (I'm hypothyroid) but I don't have much choice. As it is, the doctor cut my dose down to 4 days because I didn't want to take them at all. My health is more important than the number on the scale. I hope those antibiotics won't add to the problem too!

Since this isn't a diet but a way of life, the waiting game is on my side. It isn't a sprint either but a slow, steady, healthy road to weight loss. This is just a small bump in the road. I will prevail!!!

    Yes. Medications can slow you down, but in the long run, your eating and exercising is what matters. Congrats on that 1.4 pounds. With the steroid, that is an incredible loss! Keep up the great work, Cyndi. I know you have the determination and will to achieve your goal and live healthy for life!! -Marsha

    Yes, you will prevail. You have the right attitude and a sinus infection is no fun. Overall loss - how can you be disappointed? Do a happy dance and you'll feel better.

Pictures Of My Polyester Swimsuits

Sunday, October 07, 2012

I have had many requests to post pictures of my two polyester swimsuits, so here they are. (Please excuse the palm tree background.)







This suit has a back clasp.







This suit has a scoop back.

Both suits are 100% polyester which is chlorine resistant. The red suit is guaranteed to last at least one year. Both suits are very comfortable for swimming and water aerobics. The red one is able to be ordered in regular length, short length or long length. The pink one is just regular length. I purchased some stuff that takes most of the chlorine out of the suit if you soak the suit in a sink of water for about 15 minutes. The suits can't be washed in the washing machine and must be line dried.

I hope this was helpful!

Getting Back To Normal

Friday, October 05, 2012

I decided to try going back to water aerobics this morning. My skin infection looks like it is all gone but you can never tell. I only did one hour in the water just in case. I water jogged with weights at a very vigorous pace for 15 minutes (interval training) and did regular water aerobics for 45 minutes. Then I stretched and got out of the water. So far I'm feeling pretty good.

The best part of my morning was that I was able to wear my new H2O swimsuit. It is red and black and fits and swims like a dream. Nothing beats exercising in clothes that fit and are comfortable. I can just do my workout without worrying if something was hanging out that shouldn't be or having to pull the suit down in the back because it wasn't long enough. This one was expensive but well worth it. It is guaranteed to last for one year. I bought it to treat myself. I'm worth the effort it takes to get and stay healthy!

    Glad you're able to be back in the water. Those H2O suits are great. Just bought 2 myself. Fit great too. Little pricey. Considering I've gone thru 4 cheaper ones since June 1, I think it will be money well spent. One of mine is solid black and other is black with blue flowers.

I'm Doing A Happy Dance!!!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

My knees are feeling better. I did a lot of walking yesterday but it was at a much slower pace. The result was a big reduction in my pain level. My guess is that I walked even faster than I originally thought on Monday. Today I also did quite a bit of walking, again at a pace that was much slower. I'm still getting my workouts but they aren't as intense. I'm satisfied with that. (I still can't wait to get back into the water!!!)

The great news is that I weighed in this morning and I am another 1.6 pounds down! (1.6 pounds equals 1 pound and 9.6 ounces) Since I began two weeks ago, I'm down 5.2 pounds (5 pounds and 3.2 ounces). I lost just under a pound the week before I started WW, so my total loss is an even 6 pounds!!! I'll take it!!! After having been on a plateau for three months, starting to lose again is a welcome relief and very exciting! On my walk today, I was doing a happy dance!

Feeling Better Today

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I'm feeling much better today after my fiasco on Monday where I over did my exercise. I actually lost two pounds of fluid since yesterday. That's how swollen my knees were after all the walking that I did on Monday. Next time I'll be much more careful!

    Water exercise is very different than land exercise - our bodies have to adapt to both. I'm sure I could not do what you do in water.

    Live and learn. Finding that balance where you challenge your body to get stronger without overstressing it is tough. Keep trying and you will find it!! -Marsha

    Yes, it's so easy to overdo it, you think oh this is good, it's not as bad as it was before and so push on. Glad you're feeling better though.

Wow!! 2lb in water, that's some bad knees.

Good luck and take care. emoticon
