Monday, February 08, 2010

We had a very quiet weekend, Michael had been down but it only lasted just over a week.
We went to MIND this morning and had a good morning. We have just comeback from the doctors and I am going to have a small op to have my toe nails taken off, they have some sort of fungus in them which won't clear up, I am not looking forward to it but will be glad when it is done and I can show my toes of again.
I am doing a cushion which I am rug hooking, the pattern is a butterfly and is rally easy to do.
I am finding it quite difficult to concentrate on my crafts but it does help me keep going, I feel really tired but won't give in.

    Wow! Three pounds, that is awesome.

I am recovering from foot surgery (an atypical mole removal)...it makes it more difficult to walk around/exercise. But I am hoping to go to a studio cycling class at noon today.

Take care. And hang in there. You'll do OK this week. I can tell by your positive attitude.

    Hi, good to hear from you again. Well done on the weight loss. The toenail thing sounds a bit bad. Good luck with that. Will you have to wait long?

Hoping for good news at WW

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

I am hoping for good news at WW this week. I have been good and mostly kept to my points but I have not had much exercise.

I had a great morning at school but I feel tired so will stay in tonight and relax, I may write a letter and there are several TV show I would like to watch.

I am still feeling a bit low but I am doing my best not to give in to it, It is the Wednesday craft group and hopefully someone will show me how to do rug hooking.

    Good luck at WW. Just remember we have to take one day at a time and not look back if we have a bad day. We can do this. I really am determined. I know it will take time but I will prove this 78 year old Mother of 10, Grandma of 23 that I can do it. Have a SUPER DAY. emoticon

Thank you

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Thank you for the replies they really do help ( Michael says I do not need to lose weight but only because I spend money going to WW). The main reasons I want to lose weight are firstly my health and I would look and feel better, I am feeling very low and sometimes wonder what people think of me especially with what I put up with.

I believe I have many things to be thankful for as when you look around the world and see the problems people have I feel very lucky, I am not religious but consider myself a christian as I do as much as I can to help other people and animals.

I am back to WW tonight and will go with a new vigor and do my best to get to a goal of 10 or 10 and half stone(14 pounds to a stone). I have pedometer and will try to remember to use it.

Not sure I can do it

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I am not sure I can do this weight loss anymore, WW was closed for 2 weeks and 2 weeks more because of snow, I have tried to be sensible but it has not been easy over the holidays.

I am doubting myself as I have only lost a stone and I am now stuck, my stress problems do not help and at the moment I do not feel very good. I am trying to do as many of my hobbies and groups as I can.

Christmas was really bad as Michael was very low and we did not even have christmas dinner. He did get up but only to sleep on the sofa but after boxing day he stayed in bed and did not get up till yesterday which means I spent it on my own.

I need to lose this extra weight and it would make me feel better about myself, it would also benefit my health but it is so difficult to keep on track

    Hi, good to see you back. I was concerned about you. So you lost a whole stone, that's amazing. I can't wait for that day. WalkingAnnie blogged something the other week about using a pedometer to kickstart the weight loss after a break. Mine is in the post! It's worth a try if you haven't done so. They are really cheap on ebay. Do keep posting, we're all behind you.

    As you can see from all the encouragement below, we are all rooting for you. The fact that you have accomplished so much so far especially with Michaels problems not helping the situation, just shows how strong you actually are.

Hang in there - look how far you've come - you have done brilliantly and I admire you for dealing with your home situation so patiently

I put on 12lb over Xmas - it happens - its about picking yourself up and dusting yourself down and setting off on the journey again.

You need to be kind to yourself - you are worth it!

    Forgive yourself - accept yourself at this weight - you have lost a STONE - 14 whole lb - that is stupendous - the next pound you loose is just icing - you are already fitter and healthier than when you started your journey emoticon

So you feel your journey isn't finish - that is fine, but a pit stop is fine too, just stay focused on not going backwards.

I feel for you with regards to your partner (not sure if you are married) and I can emphasis to an extent as my hubby suffers depression and does nothing for days on end too - I have just decided to assume he will do nothing and get on with it myself (it reduces my stress levels)

Take care and I hope you will stay around if only for a bit of moral support ....... emoticon

    I, too, felt for a couple of years, that I could not lose weight. Something clicked, however, last Thanksgiving. (I got sick with the flu right before Thanksgiving). When we came home from visiting my daughter I found that I had lost 3 pounds due to eating light that past week. And I said, I can do it. So I went for it. Since Thanksgiving, I have lost 7 more pounds by exercising, watching and recording everything I eat...and being kind to myself. Not every day am I on plan, but I am on a journey. And I know now that I am worth it. And so are you.

You've got to start by believing that today is the first day of a journey, and that indeed, you are in control of your emotions and what you eat. The rest will follow. Start today by doing one thing for yourself-- Give yourself a pat on the back for hanging in there.

Best of luck!
