1 Week

Saturday, October 08, 2011

It's been one week since I've been back on track and I've lost more than 6 lbs of what I gained in Sept. I am hoping for a great month and will keep going here. I can do this if I put my mind to it! Someone should hit me on the back of the head for letting me get off track. I just have to put myself first, stop feeling sorry for my situation and move on. I had lost my 'thin' image and gotten back to my former image of being huge. Then I looked in the mirror again and saw right now I'm in the middle and could go either way. It's time to take control again and just DO IT!

    You are doing great and don't worry about what happened yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. We can change it, only move forward. Keep your head up and keep on truckin!

    You go!! I know you can do it...so ..JUST DO IT! LOL

It's so funny...I posted/huddled that same thought this morning and then find you and you had the same thought. Scary.

As for hitting you upside the head...I can't do that cause it hurts my hand to hit the computer screeen. However I don't think you need it anyway. You have turned September around and you are doing what you need to. Just keep it up and I will be over here cheering you on!!

I haven't been able to get on line for the past few days and I sure missed it. I have however been going to the pool, eating right and having a ball doing it. Lots of exercise and I lost some weight too. They are changing from dial up to broadband here and the wifi is messed up so even though I can't report, I am still doing what I am supposed to be doing and will try the best I can to log in. Have a great day!

Sunny Day

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Today is another beautiful, sunny day and we had so much fun at the pool yesterday that we are going again today. I swam for at least an hour (maybe more) and then we relaxed in the sun. I had forgotten how much we enjoy this and how good it is for me. Lots of exercise without drudgery!

Oct again, yippee!

Monday, October 03, 2011

First off, I want to thank everyone for the well wishes regarding my trip. I am so happy to be back and in the same ole routine again. It's better than my permanent home. I think I brought some of the cooler weather with me but it's not supposed to last long before the warmer temps come back. The pools are empty because everyone thinks it's too cold. NOT!! So we are going swimming this afternoon and I'm so grateful to have this opportunity. I missed not being on here but I've learned some new things to share.

When you travel, it is NOT a good idea to keep up the water intake. That causes too many bathroom stops and it's not only an inconvience but annoying to the male speices who just don't understand. The thing about all that water is that it does help to keep the eating and hunger down. When you don't do this after having done it for so long, you do feel the effects.

Also when you travel, your exercise program goes out the window, that is formal exercise. Riding in the car is not exercise and there is very little you can do about it. Once you are out of the car, there is no way you feel like exercising. Even small walks to loosen up the legs are difficult when you get older. You tend to stiffen up. I had been exercising every day and it became a habit. Not doing it showed me that my body needs it just to keep limber. As much as I don't like doing it, I do like doing it - can you understand that?

Packing and unpacking is hard work! I'm not talking packing for a weeks vacation, but for 6 months and you'd be surprise at all the stuff you need. Then there is the panic packing of stuff you throw in when you walk thru the house the last time just because you might need it. Lugging it from the parking lot to the elevator to the 7th floor is still a hike regardless of the elevator. So that should have caused a weight loss - NOT, at least I don't think so.

Where was I when I came down here last year? When I came here I was ONE LB heavier! From Oct to Apr, I lost 23 lbs and from Apr to now, I gained back 22 of them. So I lost one lb for the whole year! That plain sucks! What a waste of a year. All that time and effort put forth for 1 lb! Plus now I have to lose them all over again. I had to bring an assortment of clothes because some were tight (those are for later) and some are just right now. I did bring both bathing suits and I now know I need them both too. So here is Oct and I have to begin again. So far, it's been a good beginning, back on track and it feels like a comfortable old shoe. No stress, only happy days ahead. Mentally in the right place so I'm ready to go. Why do I make this harder than it is esp. when I am up north. That's a whole nother story and not for today.

So it's a bright sunny day and I'm going swimming, watch me shed all these calories! Hope you all have a great day!

    So glad you made the trip okay. I really think my Hubby would make me wear a diaper before he would make a stop on a trip! Unless it was for him, of course! My cat has been sick so I have been eating things that I shouldn't have. There is that stress eating again. It is the pits to have to lose all that weight again. And if I'm not careful, I'll be in the same boat. Have a good swim and lose those pounds.

    So glad you are there safe and sound. Wow, lucky you for being able to go swimming. It is really cold here for sure. We are leaving Friday noon for AL, for 3 weeks, so it will definitely be warm there. You will loose those lbs in no time at all. Family and life seems to get in the way sometimes. Enjoy your swim!!!!

As soon as I finish here, we will be packing up the computer and leaving tomorrow to go south for the winter. A few days traveling and then setting up again so I won't be here for awhile. I'll be thinking about everyone and wishing everyone well. I'm excited and stressed about the trip but it will all be worth it when we arrive. So I'll talk to ya all sometime next week. Be good and if you can't be good, be careful, lol!!
