After the worry of my lymph problem, I have finally maintained it by using "Red Root" an herbal tincture that somehow got it moving normally. I admit that I have really fall off the wagon this past week, with my worries and company. I did, however, keep a journal of everything I ate and even though I went over my calories most days, I kept my goals in mind. I didn't get in much exercise, but I did a lot of walking every day, so I am glad that it isn't a total loss.
I hit 199 FINALLY last weigh-in, which I am sure that I will have to re-gain in the coming weeks. I hopped on the scale this morning and was up to 202... It really hurts to see that I have sabotaged myself once again by keeping myself from getting back into the 100's. Why is that? There is some kind of magnetic pull towards that 200 mark for me - almost as if I will myself to stay there. I have to change my mindset and get back in this game.
Thank you, all my Spark friends, for supporting me and expressing your concern. It feels so good to know you and have friends who really care about my well-being.
Hugs to you all!

I've found a lump between my ear & cheekbone that really made me crazy with worry the past few weeks. Being without insurance at this time is even more chatotic. With the move and switch in careers, we had decided to drop the extra cost, especially since we have both been in great health.
With extensive research and reading, I have finally discovered the culprit. A lymph node located under my right temple has been swelling due to bad fluid circulation. Not exactly an emergency, but it has recked havoc on my routine. Amazingly I have not turned to food from the anxiety - it's been quite the opposite. I haven't had much of an apetite, and with that, very low energy.
I hope now that I have a clearer idea of what's been ailing me, I will be able to properly treat it and get back into the game.
Wish me prayers!

"I'm A Survivor"
On a bleak December day,
I caught a glimpse of me.
Reflections shouted "Out of shape!"
I was so unhappy!
The Biggest Loser caught my eye
and made me shed a tear.
It gave me goals to set in place
and get my butt in gear.
I quickly logged on to the net
which opened up my eyes
To others striving for good health
and shaping up their theighs.
One-hundred people formed a group
a lady organized.
We planned twelve weeks of working out,
but they dropped like flies.
No voting off was needed there,
they left on their accord.
But some stayed on to lose their weight,
refusing to be bored.
The pounds I dropped throughout each week
kept me in the game,
and closer to my team-mates
who tried to do the same.
Their kindness and support
pumped me up and made me bold.
I felt so great to be a part
of Silver and Gold.
Twenty pounds have melted off
from becoming a better chooser.
Because of new-found friends,
and The Biggest Loser!
By Me :)

I just received the Biggest Loser workout from a friend of mine, and I am so amazed at the intensity of this workout! There is some serious burn in there... I have been alternating between my Turbo Jam and the BL videos this week which has been a great variety for me. I am feeling different muscles, which is great that I am cross-training different parts! I love it!

I've gotten off-track the past week and need to gain the momentum that I had before. I had out of town guests and going in and out of town these past couple of weeks has really taken a toll on my routine.
I have realized how important and easy my water intake is - keeping a glass with me every where I go, and making sure there is one next to my bed when I sleep is essential. I drink a glass when I wake up & before bed, one at each meal & usually about 3 during my workout, so that puts me right around 8 glasses a day!
My workouts have been sporatic around company, but I have been consistantly using my videos getting between 40-80 min. when I have the time. Since the weather has been bad lately my walking has really dropped but as soon as the sun peeks out, I am on my feet and heading out the door!
I am gearing up for another round of visitors next week, so I really need to step up my game and double up on some days...
