What things you don't think about

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

What we don't think about after we lose so much weight is things that are small but mean a lot. Like being able to sit at a table at a restaurant and not worry you wont fit!. That you can wear just about any watch cause your wrist is so much smaller. That you can now wear some rings you couldn't before cause your fingers were so much bigger. You can walk and even run cause your so much lighter!!!! What i think about since i am older if something happens to me i am not very heavy to get on a gurney getting into a ambulance's many things come to me about losing weight that i am grateful for. Just being more healthy and having a better life.. Has been a long journey but i so learned a lot. Learned how to deal with stress and emotions and not to turn to food to deal with them.
The hardest part is loose skin.. not much i can do about it so another thing i deal with and just thank god i lost weight and doing good.. i can keep up with grand kids too! they love it! My husband says i am skinny!!! what a wonderful thing to hear..!
So you might think you cant do this weight loss but you can and all it takes it time and work. I have done stupid things and gone crazy with food but finally doing much better and almost to my goal!

    You and your husband look like a beautiful couple. Was that picture taken at the wedding you two went to? You are doing so good you keep up the good work. You will see your goal alot sooner then I will ever see mine. Everyone at one point in there life eats to much and puts on weight so don't call your self stupid. What matters is that you are improving your habits and are making remarkable progress. So keep up the good work , I am so proud of you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Vacation was great!

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Well made it back from vacation and even lost 2 more pounds!! There was little time to be sitting around within 3 days we went to lego land and disneyland and universal studios.. we must have walked 10 miles or more we were runing to each ride and standing in lines too! we had to make sure we got to go on all we wanted before heading home on thrus. So got a lot of exercise and ate a lot less but good things so did well. Each morning i did have a cooked breakfast.. omlet but it was small and had fruit too! So if i can do this on vacation so can anyone .. Me and husband always shared too so that helped a lot! But as good as vacation was and we had a great hotel and all it wasa great to be home and get back on treadmill and have my own food at home and be in more control. so down 89 pounds now and working toward my goal..!
When i look back i still cant believe i got this far, its been a increiable journey and one i wouldnt have gone thru if it wasnt for this site and all the wonderful friends on here and also from all the message board postings cause i have learned a lot thru thoes and things i had read on the site! Of course it helped to watch Oprah a lot of times when she had shows, abnout diets and also about * the secert also watched" I can make you thin " and that show really helped me.. got me thinking of more of eating slower and less too!@ so a lot helped and i am so grateful i am still going strong and soon will be at my goal..
Thinking postive, eating less and better and keeping busy anbd exercising is the most important.. so keep going and you will do it too!

Its Been awhile

Friday, September 19, 2008

well its Sept now and been doing good. I exercise each day and eat pretty good! Sometimes i have some bad days, have too much sweets but all and all i do great and keep busy and not think much about food.. Exercise helps me so much if i didn't have the energy to do it or make it a habit like i have i wouldn't have lost as much .As of today lost 81 pounds! it seems incredible to me at my age i am able to do this. But i have and even thou in the beginning when i started my goal was to be at 180 i think for me i need to be at 150. well see how i feel and what is best for me..
The best thing about losing is having energy and being able to sit in a restaurant and not worry the table is too close and have to move cause don't feel comfortable also.. to look better in clothes!! no one will understand all this until they go thu the progress and then they will understand..
Life is good and i am so glad i did this!!! And everyone else can just takes being positive and determined

    You Keep going Girl you are doing real good. I am very proud of you and all that you have accomplish. How tall are you that should determine how much weight you should lose? If I get down where I want to be that will be a good weight for my height. I can see where I lost it off my thighs and I can start seeing definition in my waist area. emoticon emoticon emoticon

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
