I Know i am skinner .. But..

Sunday, July 06, 2008

Well its july and i am down 50 pounds .. or so i think.. i weight myself and shows pounds lost but inches not a lot in stomach and all.. i see some pics of me and i look good some i say to myself.. gee i have a lot of work to do.. i exercise each day.. swim or work out on treadmill.. with it being so hot here in calif thats as much as i can do. I know i need to give myself a break and just know i am doing good but i guess it gets to me some times. When your 57 your skin doesnt shirnk as much as when your older so you younger ones be so glad you are young and can look awesome after you lose !so there is that to deal with some dont even talk about it and i dont know if i can ever have surgery to remove excess skin or what ever so i have to just keep on going no matter what and feel good that i can do a lot and i am doing good on eating and exercising and lifting weights where some are not!.So this is just a update and i so hate this heat.. going to be 104 tomorrow and next day so doing yard work early and get all that kind of things done. Hope you all are having a good weekend i am off tomorrow so happy about that and will keep busy and burn some calories.. hugss to all Geri.. Keep postive and remember we all CAN do this!!

I know it's hard to work out with the heat. But you have the right idea about doing it in the morning.
Keep it up. You are doing great.

    You look good keep up the good work. I am very proud of you.
I joined the over fifty Spark team and there are five to six women that are just like me have not been able to lose any weight in months. So may be I will learn something from one of them or someone on that team that has lost some weight. My weight is back up today.
Oh well I am very happy for you. You look very pretty in all of your pictures. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Still doing good trying to help others..;)

Friday, June 13, 2008

I have now lost a total of 43 pounds ! and Still going strong. Finding some fun things to do to have fun and burn calories too, like badmitton and swiming, playing tag in the pool is so much fun with grandkids and keeps you moving as well, bad thing , i have to put more sun block on cause now i am sun burnt so have to waite to be in pool again..
So what do i do now, i exercise in doors and keep busy.
The one thing i love to do is help others stay motivated and give them tips i have learned on my journey!.. Its now not work its my life style and i am sooooooooooo very glad i found this site and all my wonderful friends here! Without all the info and support and help i wouldnt be doing so good!
I still cant believe it cause i kept thinking it would be much harder at my age(57) but i guess with all the info i read on here i just knew i can do it!
so if anyone out there thinks they cant.. They CAN!!! think postive keep busy and dont EVER Give UP!!!!
hugss and love ro you all Geri

    I am very proud of you. Please do make sure that you use sun block. Put it on a half hour before you go out in the sun. If you are in the pool for long periods of time add it every few hours.
I will not give up but to lose a few pounds would make me Happy.
Kepp up the good work.
Love Ya Lorraine emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

A new Month.. still doing good!

Sunday, June 01, 2008

Well lost 40 pounds now and even thou i have lost all the weight still have 40 to lose or more. I look at my pics and look in mirror i like what i see but still have problem spots i have to work on more so i look like i want to. Been a long journey and i have learned so very much! it hasnt always been smooth sailing but have had so much support so i am blessed. I have tried to help a few here and there from what i have learned and sure hope some have gotten motivated to keep going on their healthy life style.It does take so long to lose and everyone has to be patient cause it wont come off fast and it shouldnt cause if it did then you will gain it all back cause you didnt learn a lot on the way!
I have to thank my daughter for all she has done to help and support me and all my friends on spark people who are always here for me that means a lot!! Keep going everyone you can do this!!! hugss and love always Geri

    Hello Geri,
I know you can do this, b/c the word "can't" is not in my vocabulary. You can say "I can do this. I can do this". Just take 1 day at a time and a lot of patience.
You are doing a terrific job on your own and with us behind you 100% too. You still have time to lose and you will feel totally different when it does come off. You are terrific person and do not let anyone tell you different. I have known you for a short time and I like you positive attitude. Take care, talk to you soon and have a good upcoming weekend. Always, ERNA

The Journey keeps going!

Monday, May 12, 2008

Well its May now and i am at 225!!! so lost 35 pounds so far! The one thing i thought i wanted to lose fast to see improvement, but now i am glad it went slow or i wouldnt have learned anything... and i have big time... learned to be postive, to give myself a break here anf there, not to look back,.. and make working out fun!!.. alos..The best thing is looking at myself in clothes and see how good i look and things fit so much better too!And from watching TLCs what not to wear if i do buy clothes which i do.. tops mostly cause can take them in( which i have taken almost all of my tops now..) i know more of what to pick out so dont look bigger than i am..! i will be so glad when i am out of plus sizes and can find more clothes cheaper.. that is one thing i am looking forward to!
The very best thing for me.. is this site and the many friends i have made.. i feel so blessed so grateful that my darling dughter told me about this site and ever since i have been so excited and so happy cause now i know i can do it and i am!!! thanks everyone all my wonderful friends and daughter for all your support! means a lot!

    You do not look like you weigh 225 by any means. You are very pretty and you were a knock out growing up I bet. I am so proud of you keep up the good work. Before you know it you will be in single sizes.

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.
