Failing 2

Thursday, September 09, 2010

I should say that I meant 6 pounds in a month not a week, sorry for confusion. I am just feeling so low at the moment. I get lonely at night ( Michael never gets up when he is like this) and I do not like to bother my friends as they all seem to have there own problems,I do try to keep busy but it is not easy.
I believe that if I do not lose this extra weight soon I will have some serious health problems, it is not as much as some people but is it is creeping up all the time. I told my GP about this last time I saw her and she told me not to worry as I have enough other problems but this seems to have made me feel worse. I cannot walk as far as I use to because of sciatica problems, I do try to keep to a routine in the daytime and try to go out at least twice.
The extra weight also affects my asthma which can make it difficult walking upthe hills around here. emoticon emoticon

    I have the same hip and asthma problems, in addition I have bad knees, but I have discovered that going to water aerobics doesn't hurt any of my 'hurts' and I get a shot of my inhaler before I go to help.

I am a 55 years young, divorced, empty-nester and I've found that actively doing something about my weight JUST FOR ME! has helped my attitude. I was depressed and tired all the time and kept saying to myself that if I could just loose all this weight, I'd probably feel better.

WELL, I haven't lost all this weight yet, but I feel better because I'm actively working on it. When I fall off the wagon on my eating or exercise, I pick myself up and start again THE SAME DAY! lol

I hope our SP friends all rally around you to let you know we all care about you (ups and downs) and that YOU making your goals matters to us all! Remember above all that God cares and he knows what you're going through, you can always lean on Him when there seems to be nobody else around! He doesn't care if you rail and cry, even if you can only do it silently to HIM.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY AND MAY GOD GIVE YOU PEACE. emoticon

    So sorry to hear of your troubles. Is your sciatica relieved at all by stretching? I didn't have a bad case, but that seemed to help some when it was painful to walk. I know it can be difficult to live with someone who has bipolar disorder, which from your description I assume your husband has. My son, who is in my profile picture with me, suffers from BPD, and when he is down, he either sleeps all the time or is angry. It's hard to like him when he's that way, even though I love him.

Please try not to take it personally, as they really can't help it. Your friends here on SP are here for you, so come and interact with us.

    Feel better. Perhaps you can get some 'you' time while Michael is down. or, does he need your assistance when down?

I am struggling so much at the moment that nothing seems worth it. Last week I put down to lose 6 pounds on one of the craft teams goals and I really thought I could do it. It is all down to Michael and his moods, he had two great weeks when he was up and we did some great things and I even enjoyed my birthday but now it seems as if just giving up is the best thing. Last night was very bad. emoticon I am running out of time for now.

    Hey to lose 6lb would be a heck of a stretch & you would have to be extremely drastic with your food. If you look on the site you will find that the best to aim for is 1 to 2lbs per week otherwise you put it all back on & then some.
I'm sorry that Michael is down again and it's easy for me to say please try to keep yourself well & less stressed.

    Sorry your feeling so low. 6lb is a lot to aim for in one week, so please don't beat yourself up about it. It's taken me ages to lose 6lb. Keep plugging away and slowly but surely you will get there. As PETAL65 says, we have to learn to let go those things we can do nothing about.

    Life's difficult....sometimes those difficulties are in the front seat, sometimes in the back seat and sometimes when we're really lucky they're riding in the trunk, where they can't be seen.
For me it's a matter of deciding what I can and can't do about things.
Can I fix a particular problem my husband or child is dealing with, if yes then I help...if not then I have to say to myself 'Well there's nothing I can do, so I'll have to let it go'
As to weight loss, well that is something we can do something about...it's all in the way we accept responsibility.
Sometimes it's fun to exercise sometimes it's draining...
sometime's it's easier to have that cookie but ALWAYS we feel badly about it (unless you plan for it and push yourself 5 extra minutes to make up for the caloric intake)
You'll come through this....concentrate on the positive and leave the rest behind!
Best of Luck

Mum

Monday, August 23, 2010

I have still not managed to get hold of mum, think she may have gone away for a few days but why she did not say when she spoke to Michael on Saturday morning I do not know. She lives about 35 miles away in Newark.
I am thinking of going back to Weight Watchers as I know I will not lose the extra weight on my own, Michael says he will help me but not sure I can rely on him especially when he is down and I am on my own in the evenings.
I am feeling a bit low and tired but had thought of going to a line dancing class but worried about my back and don't think I could stand up for too long.

    Why not give it a try and see how you get on. Line dancing sounds as if it would be quite a sociable way to exercise.

    I think line dancing sounds great - often when I don';t feeling like doing exercise I do it anyway and feels loads better afterwards.

If your back starts to hurt can't you sit some of it out to rest? I am sure the teacher wouldn;t mind.

Good Weekend

Sunday, August 22, 2010

I had a lovely day on Friday(my birthday) as I went out for a meal with the carers forum, I did A little shopping before meeting up with them to take a mini bus to the place we were going to have the meal.
Yesterday we went to see a play at the theatre in Nottingham, it was very good and has it was a farce we had a laugh.
I am going to give blood this afternoon, I have missed several sessions because of transport problems.
One cloud on the horizon is Mum, she rang yesterday morning but I was at the shops and I have not been able to get hold of her since, she is 78 in a couple of weeks time and a diabetic.

Time on my own

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

I have got an evening on my own to do as I please, I am going to my church craft group and then I shall put my relaxation machine on.
I am playing a silly CD of childrens classic songs, does anyone remember Ed Stewpot on weekend radio? Sorry American pals you will not know him.
Feeling tired still but I am trying hard to keep on track. Not sure why but usually feel worse for the two or 3 days after michael comes up, just wish he could see what he is doing.
