    i just wanted to say thanks for the advise about the soda. I was going to try to drink a little and go slowly but I think you're right. I should probably stop all together. Water, water, water. I'm sorry to hear that you hurt yourself. i hope you are doing better. I am a little accident prone. I always seem to have an injury. Take your time. Don't push yourself to fast. You will heal better. God Bless, Sue

    Hi there, I am so sorry to hear about your fall... I haven't checked on you lately and you were on my mind... I hope this post finds you feeling even better... I had a fall myself, Monday, running across a street, and fell on both knees and hurt my right hand... I'm sore, but ok... and have been able to exercise. Well, you fell first, maybe it was just my turn...:) Anyway, I'm taking my accident as a message to "slow down" and not be so much in a hurry all the time.... But I'm happy to hear that you are all in one piece and didn't break anything. Take it easy... I will be checking on you.. sorry I took so long to visit you! Sending you mucho (((HUGS)))... ~ Dee ~

    Glad you are up and about again and you also managed not to gain weight, well done. I think they older you get the more a fall hurts, I have been waiting for the snow and ice to go so I can walk outdoors again, I have really missed it. Take care and let someone else mop the floor next time, you now have a very good excuse for others to do it...

    Hi! I am glad you are up and around doing alot better. I am so Happy that you did not break any thing when you fell. I wish I could lose the weight the way you do I stepped on the scales and it said I went up and I was so careful with what I ate this past weekend plus I did quite abit of walking. We were in Philadelphia taking our daughter back to college. I have been exercising five days a week I just don't get it. Take Care ! Lots of Hugs

    Geri,

I just read a post you put on the Emotional Eater's forum and then came to your page. Reading this makes me sad...you are SO much more than your hair. Being alive is about having a spark in your eyes and an aliveness in your heart. Just from your writing i believe you have that...and i also believe that the more weight you lose the more you will shine! Hugs to you!

    Hey Beautiful,
I love the picture of you. I know that you and I have talked about the hair thing and you are such a strong woman. With myself being a surviving cancer patient, I know what you mean about the hair. If you ever want to we can go check out the wig store in Modesto. It could be fun. Hang in there!
Hugs,
Jane

    I am having trouble with the psoriasis too! I am going to the Allergy Specialist and will see if he has anything for it! I want him to refer me to a Arthritis specialist if he will. I think I have the Psoriasis Arthritis or Fibromyelgia. I am sorry you are so down. Please try to hang in there. If we have to get wigs, we can have a wig fashion show! I am sure the cancer patients and others with hair loss would join us! Remember, there is always someone worse off than you are! You will be ok! Hugs and know I am thinking of you. Cherie

Oh, BTW the picture of you is wonderful...you look beautiful there!

I think its more of a postive attitude i have..that i will get to my goal no matter what.. this is a journey and i am learning all the time! The Best thing is my walking buddy gave me *the Secert * book and i am reading that and it is a wonderful book to see your goals and visializing them and they will happen!! so thank all of you who have helped me along the way..

    Thanks for your encouraging words and congratulations on your success. I too seem to get stuck when the results aren't happening as quickly as I would like. For you to push through that difficult time and not give up is an inspiration to me. Have a great weekend.

    You are off to a good start....I have the book the Secret also got the DVD, really good reading, I occasionally put the dvd on when I feel I need it listen to it again. It is a lot to take in, but all very well worth while, now I just need to put it all in practice.

I am getting there!

Thursday, February 07, 2008


Well this is about 3 weeks since i have started here, sometimes i do get frustrated when i look at scale and dont see a lot lost.. i am trying and doing all with excerise and eating less and more healthy, not always easy but i am doing it!! and husband is on this too which so helps..but as far as site i dont feel like i am doing enough, not as far as reading and all but as far as teams and giving support or talking about me and my problems. I have a hard time being online a lot but i see so many giving support and doing so well and i wonder how do they have time to be online posting and doing all the things you need to do in a day and excerise too! So i have no buddy online or off just husband . and he isnt here all day. so i guess i am just feeling sorry for myself and a little emotional , but i will get thru it and keep going and will make it.. !

    Hi Geri, You have lost over 18 pounds...That is absolutely awesome! I have only lost 1 1/2 pounds in the same time frame. You are doing great. A friend of mine used to say, "Don't quit 5 minutes before the miracle happens!" Keep going girl, It took a long time to put all our weight on, it will take some time to take it off too. I deceided to have a goal of 5 pounds a month. That is a very low amount to lose but it is a healthy and permanent weight loss if you do it right. If I had 18 pounds off like you do, I would be so happy that I would be jumping up and down! I would be like Air Jordan...Ha ha..you could call me Air Cherie! Anyway, try to cheer up girl friend, you are really doing a good job. Some weeks will be a lot slower than others but the important thing is to just keep going. Oh, don't compare yourself to your hubby...men can safely lose up to 4 pounds a day because of their heavier bone structure and higher metabolism, so we females can not comepare ourselves to that! Most of us are really lucky if we can lose 4 pounds a week because our metabolism is so much slower! They really are the brawn! I hope we are the beauties...but I know I am not at this weight! Hugs to you, I hope your day is better. Cherie

    Hello- I hope all is well with you today. It does seem so frustrating when the scale does not move after all the effort you put in to eat healthy & exercise. Believe me, I have been there. My old LA Weight Loss counselor told me I was not eating 100% of the diet plan. I was sabotaging myself diet everyday by eating a single 200-300 calorie item not on my plan. Let me tell you, I struggle with that same habit even today. Sorry for rattling on. Anyway, keep up the struggle & you will progress soon.

    Keep on going! Post anytime you can or you need to ask a question, concern, boast, or to vent. We are all here for one another. I also did not lose any for a while, but I thought if I ate under the amounts & walked that was given on the Nutrition Tracker page I would lose more & faster. I did not lose any. I kept walking and increased my eating trying to keep to the lower end of the guidelines, but within the numbers, and I started losing. It is a strange concept, but for me I had to eat more to lose weight. Different things work for different people. Just don't give up. I now know from reading on the site that muscle weighs more than fat and sometimes you may lose inch (or part of an inch) which do not show any loss on the scale. But you are moving forward that is what is important. I feel like a different person than I did at the beginning of last month (really for years). I have so much energy and my outlook has improved so much that I believe my effort has not been in vain.

    I'm sorry you're feeling a bit down! It is hard to get everything done in a day and post and exercise! Personally for me there is little else I can do while feeding the baby (still breastfeeding) so I post during my time doing that... and speed clean and stuff while he naps. I'm also demanding time in the evening when my hubby is home to get other stuff done!

You aren't alone, you can do it! Have you signed up for an accountilbilty buddy on FWC forum? It can be really helpful to have someone to talk to- I know my buddy and myself IM each other during the day whenever we sit down.

I hope your day goes well and you start feeling better!

-Kimberly
