I wish i can lose weight and keep it off

Friday, May 31, 2013

I wish I can lose weight and keep it off. I have never been able to, I lose then winter comes and even though i have a treadmill I quit. I just give up. I have lost weight MANY times and gained weight back MANY times. I want to change this bad habit. I want to care about myself enough to do it BUT to be honest I am not sure I can. I will try I am going to take it one day at a time and PRAY to GOD for help. Tomorrow is my husband's birthday, I will not be taking a walk and I know I will eat the wrong food's tomorrow I will try to eat less then I normally would when we go out. BUT on Sunday I will be back to my eating less and healthy

    I am sure most of us have done that. You are not alone. Enjoy the birthday then start again. Do to expect perfection over night.
Go for one thing that will start to get you back on track , once that becomes a habit introduce a 2nd healthy habit. . Maybe drinking more water? Going for a walk each day?. I find planning meals ahead works for me then I am not tempted to grab a last minute fatty meal. Good luck. Irene emoticon

Back from my walk

Friday, May 31, 2013

I just got home from my walk, I walked about 2.3 miles. My grand daughter Emily and her friend started walking but after about 3/4 of a mile came back to my house. I knew they would not walk as long as i would but at least they got in a little exercise.

I want to THANK EVERYONE who responded to my blog, I really appreciate it. I am just getting back to eating better and exercising I really enjoy this site and all the people.

Just came back from a long walk that i enjoyed

Thursday, May 30, 2013

I took a walk this evening starting around5pm, I walked about 2.2 maybe a little more. it was hot and I enjoyed my walk, I was by myself and I had taking the time to talk to GOD and JESUS. I am a christian and I love praying, I gave thanks that my body was able to get out and walk. I have been walking some in the past 60 days I thought I had posted it but I guess it didn't. Not a lot but maybe 5 times not sure, so I need to post every time I walk NOT TO BRAG just so I can keep track and inspire myself to walk more and just maybe inspire someone else as well.

Taking a walk with Jesus is especially nice!

    My walk/jog times are also time spent with God. I love the body He has given me and I take the time to get in touch with it and really feel it work. It's a gift from God and a joy and responsibility to take care of His temple. I also get to praise Him for His Spirit in nature. I walk at the crack of dawn and get to see the sun rise. It reminds me of the Son rise!

God bless you and keep praising Him.

    Actually a lot of times you go on vacation and end up eating very salty foods which makes you retain water. You may not have gained as much as you think and if you keep drinking water, exercising, and eating right you'll find you're still in a good position to meet your goals!

    HI BECKY,
JUST EAT SMALLER PORTIONS AND PLENTY OF WATER. TAKE 1 DAY AT A TIME AND TAKE IT SLOWLY. NOT TOO FAST AND AT YOUR OWN PACE. THAT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING AND I'M STILL LOSING MY WEIGHT. IT MAY BE SLOWER, BUT IT'S BETTER THAN DOING NOTHING AT ALL. TAKE CARE AND TALK TO YOU SOON.
ALWAYS, ERNA

It has been a long time, but i am back, VERY LONG SORRY

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I have not been on here for a long time. right before my cruise Sept 27th I think. I have exercised a few times when i came back, outside and some on the treadmill BUT my old treadmill messed up, would stop at 20 minutes and smelled like something was burning. So my husband bought me a new one, it was delivered on Jan 18. I got on it for the first time tonight. I did a lot worse then i used to. BUT I am just starting back, I am very depressed, my doctor had out me on a new medication for depression called VIBRID, It is not good for me, I started like he told me to do with the lowest dose and after then next dose up, he gave me samples. The lowest dose was ok I thought. then i went up to the next dose i have been very depressed on this medication, i have been crying,not feeling good, not wanting to do anything. I had an appointment with my doctor and i was so depressed i cancelled it, I shouldn't have. a few days later I called his office during regular business hours and it went to an answering service, they picked up and hung up without saying anything. I called back and I ask was there anyone in the office it was 10 am the woman said all i know is they told us to take messages, i told them my name, number and that I needed to reschedule an appointment ASAP, THEY SAID OK, I didn't hear anything from the office, i called back two days later same thing, the answering service took my message, i never got a call back, I waited a few days later called back same thing so they next day I went into the office. it was a wednesday they said my doctor was not in and he would be at 3:30 but could not see me, i explained I knew i was not going to be able to be seen but need an appointment and I had left MANY messages with their answering service but i NEVER got a call back, The woman told me he would call me, and that he was going to be out of town all next week, I never got a call from my doctor BUT the next day Thursday I got a letter that said he was moving and gave the new address and number. on the next Monday I called the new number and I had to leave a message and two days later someone from the new office said your doctor is not moved in yet he will not be here until Feb 4th call the old number, I did and THEN THE WOMAN said let me look on my computer and she said oh you now have an appointment for FEB 13TH, WHEN WERE THEY GOING TO LET ME KNOW, GOOD THING I CALLED. I didn't have any more samples but a friend that goes to him also had some he gave her, she gave them to me, so I am on the lowest dose but still so very depressed, it also makes me MEAN AND GROUCHY I don't like this medicine at all. also he out me on ADDERALL SO I don't know if it is the vibrid, the Adderall or the combination. I am a mess right now

    I am glad to see you back on SP. I hope you get your meds and Dr worked out. I have to agree that maybe it's time to look for a new Dr? If that's possible and you feel it would help. Although, you don't need the stress of finding a new Dr, it would be nice if you could find one that is more responsive to your needs. Seems like maybe it's the office staff that is the problem? Anyway, I think it's great that you are back. Don't worry about the weight gain or lack of fitness. The main thing is you are taking control and setting a great new path for the new year. I just started back Jan 1 and realize I have a long way to go. But that's OK! Baby steps will add up!

    I hope you start to feel better! Getting the right meds can take time and someone who can watch you closely. This Dr. is not doing a good job. See if you can find a new one. Hugs!

    WELCOME BACK, BECKY, I WOULD FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR AS SOON AS YOU CAN. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE GETTING THE RUNAROUND. THAT HAPPENED TO ME AND I TOLD TERRY WOMAN WHO MAKES THE APPOINTMENTS) THAT I WAS TIRED OF THAT. SHE SAID THAT MY DOCTOR'S SON IS IN THIS OFFICE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HIM. SO WHAT DID I DO? HE IS MY MAIN DOCTOR NOW. HE IS REALLY GOOD AND UNDERSTANDS WHAT I WHEN I GO IN THERE.FOR PAP SMEAR I SEE THE WOMAN DOCTOR.
TRY AND SEE IF YOU CAN GET ANOTHER DOCTOR, B/C DEPRESSION IS NOT GOOD TO BE IN THAT SITUATION. IF YOU NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT YOUR MEDICATIONS ARE FOR; I CAN SEND YOU A SITE THAT TELLS YOU WHAT THEY ARE LET ME KNOW IF YOU DO AND I WILL TRY TO HELP YOU WITH WHAT I CAN DO,
GOOD TO SEE AND HAVE YOU BACK WITH US. LOOK IN THE MIRROR, SMILE, AND WHO DO YOU SEE. I AM HAPPY YOU CAME BACK....

    I'm glad you're back, and I'm sorry things are not going well right now. Keep coming back anyway - my SparkFriends always cheer me up, no matter what.

As far as your doctor is concerned - I'm thinking it's time to find a new one.

Please hang in there.
Hope you'll feel better soon.
