Dont Ever give up!

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Cause i never have! Its been since Jan i started here on the site, and have lost 65 pounds so far.. i have had alot of ups and downs and hit platues but good thing now i am losing again! I just havent given up and even thou have a lot of heal pain i work with it and dance walk in place( a veido on fitness tv) or swim, something to keep going and busy!Oh of course do yard work, wash truck, i try to think of something each day to do. As far as eating, eating slower , sharing food when going out,and not having a lot of snack foods in the house has helped a lot along with logging in my foods! The hardest thing to deal with because of my age my skin isnt shirnking like it would if i had started this when i was younger and since i dont have medical or a lot of money surgery isnt a option but hey thats how it is when your older anyways so i will live with it and keep exercising and lifting weights so i am strong,( which i am!) and tone up as much as i can. The best thing is all the support i have from my husband and family means more than they know! so here i go and soon be at my goal weight!!!! so dont give up and be postive cause if i can do this so can all of you!!! thanks all my friends here for all your support as well couldnt do it without you all hugss Geri

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!!

    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!
