Still doing good!!

Friday, May 02, 2008


I had lost 30 pounds and then thought i didnt have to work so hard after that but then I was at a stand still so had to rethink things and realize i had mix things up and work out each day.. doing something different like more steeper incline on treadmill or do cardo tapes in tv room.. (my work out room).. and do heaver weights , which should be getting them for birthday this weekend!! so now i am down 33 pounds and still going!!

I am going to be 57 and i cant believe i waited so long to get in better shape . How come it takes us to long to realize things and do whats best for us. I guess just takes time, for me i had a lot to deal with to get over , which now i guess was the time to take care of me!! As women we always take care of everyone else but us, and no matter what i am going to take care of me and be healthier and more fit.! Now the problem is i cant see myself getting skinner, how is that going to be?? i dont know , its will be a journey to see what weight i will be at to feel good and healthy, i dont know if it will be 180 or not. Time will tell

The best thing is thru helping some on this site i have helped myself and i am so proud of so many who have not given up and keep going!! i wished everyone would read,.*the Secret** it is a wonderful book on being postive.. getting all you want thru law of attraction and not to keep any negative thoughts in your head.. all postive things will come true..!!
Keep going girls, we all can do it.. and blogging once in awhile just helps us all! Hugs Geri

    Happy Mother's Day!!! You are doing a great job and I'm so proud that you have lost more weight. I have not read the secret but did watch the DVD and I agree, it's a great way to live. I use the power of positive thinking every chance I get and it works!!! You're doing great and from another woman in her 50's who is trying to finally get it right, I salute you!!!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog today. I too, wonder why I had to wait til I was 55 to get serious about my health. Although, I am very healthy (other than the fat), that is not an excuse to keep up my bad habits. I am going to get that book, the secret. Thanks for the tip. Jo

    I believe that sometimes we need an adjustment period. That sometimes our bodies are just getting used to the new current weight., sort of a reset phase. So if during that time you maintain, its good. Why we wait so long? who knows. Maybe we have been too busy living to fine tune our selves.

Lost 27 pounds so far..!

Thursday, April 10, 2008


Its been since jan and i have lost 27 pounds and sometimes i look at myself and say * i can believe i lost that much*. wow.. i did it just when i thought i couldn't.. and then when i fell i was so upset cause i was going good and i Didn't want to lose the motivation i had and also thought i would gain but i didn't.! i guess cause i kept getting up and walking and not letting anything get me down . I was determined to get better and i did! so if this is a motivation for you it should be.. i think if i can get thu this at age 56 (i know i say that a lot..lol) then anyone can.. cause if anyone knows when we get older its much harder let alone being a woman.. men lose much easier but i am losing more than husband..lol.. the thing is.. work out.. which i cant do much cardo now but i am walking a lot.. lift weights that so helps, and don't think food is a enemy its just to keep us alive and of course we have to be healthy too so i think eat as fresh as i can, ( i cook a lot too!).. and think positive.. food doesn't rule you.. you rule it.. yes it is good.. just eat a little.. and eat slowly.. taste it .. remember how good it was.. if you eat too fast you don't even know what you eat..! and remember your beautiful no matter what weight your at!

    Congratulation you just keep it up girl you are doing good work. I am very proud of you. I need some kind of machine to work out on seeing my air go meter bike is on it last legs and the weather does not corporate here. Although I told my husband to get me a Elliptical for my birthday which is in September. So I will just have to find some other cardio then the DVD's I have been doing all a long, until this weather warms up. Here are your next weights LOL . What weight are you looking to get. I am at eight lb's. emoticon emoticon

    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!
