Getting Discouraged!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Although I have lost 20+ lbs over the summer. I have gained 3 lbs since I cant walk anymore. The colder it gets the more limited I get with physical activity. I try to eat right but my kids dont help any. They bring the donuts, flour tortillas and pizzas over. I have started dancing for small periods of time with my granddaughter for exercise. It helps me entertain my granddaughter and it helps me move around a bit. I just need to see the scale move down again to give me a little hope. Im scared that I will gain back what I have lost and then some.

    The winter months are hard for me too. I walk all summer and feel great when the cold weather gets here I start to workout indoors with Walk Away the Pounds DVDs.
They keep me moving without the pain. When the weather gets cool and damp my legs really bother me and this way I get to do my walking without the pain. Maybe you could do the same.
Hope your up and feeling like dancing all day soon. Sandy

On the road to recovery

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

After being off my feet for over 3 months, I am ready to get moving again. Although I only gained about 5 lbs back, I feel very out of shape and tired all the time. I am recieving physcial therapy to get my foot moving again and I am gradually walking more and more every day. I feel like I am finally back to my old self and ready to continue my journey to weightloss. Tomorrow my sister and I will weigh in and start our own lil mini biggest loser just between the two of us. We will compete against each other but at the same time we will help each other. I hope that writing on my blog and journaling will help me. We'll see what happens.

Just do it!

Friday, April 03, 2009

I have finally decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and went back to see my doctor. He told me I have arthritis in both legs and a spur on one foot. I am being referred to a foot specialist to take care of my foot problem and have been given medication for the arthritis. Slowly I have started walking and riding my indoor bike. I take it easy cuz the pain gets really bad but I have to so something or I'll gain everything back plus some. I can do that to myself. I just tell my self "Just do it!! and I have. I am close to reaching the weight that I had left off on.


Im at a stand still!

I am at a pretty sad part in my diet. I havent been able to lose any weight because I havent been able to exercise. I have developed arthritis in my legs that prevents me from walking due to the pain. The colder it is the worse the pain gets. At times it gets depressing. Im waiting for the warm weather so I can finally get out there and exercise. I have started doing some of the bootcamp videos provided by Sparkpeople and I am hoping that will help a little. If any one has any suggestions, please let me know.

    I feel your pain! But there are many things you can do without having to stand. Do you have any hand weights? Do simple bicep curls or lifts while watching t.v. You can lay on the floor and do leg lifts or chest presses with your hand weights. While you are cooking, do 10 to 12 leg lifts at the stove. Each extra movement counts. Also, get yourself one of the elastic bands and you can sit in a chair and use that to exercise your arms and chest. Don't be discouraged - there are still things that you can do. emoticon

Ups and Downs

Thursday, December 18, 2008

12/18/08-I have been having trouble staying motivated. I had a lot of stressors these past 2 months which made me gain some of my weight back. I finally went to the Dr and weighed in. I was shocked to see how much I had gained. That was an eye opener for me. I dont want to reach 200 again I wont. I am back on track and ready to reach my goal.
