It's raining nearly everyday now!

Saturday, November 05, 2011

So, if I want to begin my exercise program again, it'll have to be indoors. Probably an exercise DVD! I wish I had more titles and choices to choose from but in Malaysia, there's not much choice in exercise DVDs. Mostly Denise Austin, for some reason!

But I still have some phlegm in my throat and I've been sneezing quite a lot. So, I haven't completely recovered from my flu yet but I will, soon, hopefully! I'm itching to get started on sweating again!

Can't wait to start up my exercise program again!

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I still have the remains of a slight flu. My throat is still producing some phlegm but the good news is, I'm not coughing constantly, just occasionally, which is an improvement. My nose is also not blocked all the time like it was a few weeks before where I'm constantly looking for a piece of tissue to blow my nose.

So far, I've gained a kilo, not thrilled, not thrilled AT ALL! So, I can't wait to start my exercise program again! I'm planning to jog/walk, with the emphasis on jogging, intervals, y'know. I want to break out into a good sweat every time and I'll be also doing strength training most days. Previously, I was lazy and just strolled in a relaxing manner most days for cardio but I also did do some strength training most days. But first, I have to recover from this flu otherwise I'll make myself worse. So, I'm just bidding my time here...........

Oh Well.........

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

I guess I've put on 1kg so far. I'm just waiting for the doctor to arrive to confirm that I'm now 57kgs and no longer 56.5kgs. I keep having problems like low bp and getting close to a blackout whenever my weight reaches 56.8kgs and below.

Though I sincerely hope that my weight gain is all muscle, I'm not so sure but my clothes still fit, and that's a relief. I think my hips may be a little bigger though, if my the way my shorts fit are anything to go by. But my jeans still fit fine (the new ones).

I can't be complacent though. I do aim to be 50kgs by the end of this year. It looks almost impossible now. I've been 56kgs for sooo long, and then I gain! Oh well, if I don't achieve it by the end of this year, I'll just have to keep trying!

I'm trying to be more positive now.......

Maybe the situation is not so hopeless after all! True, I've put on 1 kg, but my clothes still fit. In fact, they seem to be slightly looser!

Who cares what the scale says?! I'm going by how my clothes fit! I'll be measuring myself with a measuring tape soon. I won't be so hard on myself, all I can do is continue to eat healthy and start my exercise program again after I've kicked off this flu I'm having. I'm getting better, but I still have a bit of phlegm and a stuffy nose. I've been sleeping without air-conditioning for several nights now, because of this darn flu!

    Glad you are feeling better and have been able to work through a difficult period. It takes a lot of energy to change one's habits so it's good you're revving up for a season of exercise. Me, too. :)

    Well done - get out the tape and start measuring... I had a client who did not lose any weight one month but lost 6 inches from the waist...

  Oh NO, Get Well!! Not fun being sick! The scale is for measuring food!! LOL... I also go by how clothes fit... too many variables to make that scale go up and down... it's maddening! Who needs that? As long as the clothes are fitting slightly loose and becoming looser... that's a great indicator!

You're doing well!! Whoo hoo!! :D Have a great weekend!

This is soooooooooo hopeless!!!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Well, it's Wednesday and I'm 300 grams too heavy! This is like the upteenth month in a row!!! It's hopeless! Will my weight ever be normal, will I ever lose weight!!!?

I just had one meal, today's dinner and I've already put on 1kg!!! It's hopeless!!! I really, really feel suicidal right now!!!! I have to be the worst dialysis patient in the world!!!! No one is as messed up as me!!! No one!!!!

My dry weight is 56.5kgs (up 500 grams already from before), Right now, I weigh 57.8kgs just after dinner!!! I came home weighing 56.8kgs today. I still have the whole day tomorrow to get heavier! I feel like a salmon swimming upstream!!!! It's hopeless!!!!

    I step on the scale only when I know I'll weigh the least, which is first thing in the morning. After that, the scale is not my friend. I try to weigh in only once a week but I'm not having much luck with that. I'm just too curious. I can't eat just 2 meals a day because I get too hungry in between. I always eat breakfast - even if all I have time for is a banana or a granola bar. As Jooprincess said above, your body will go into starvation mode if it's not getting enough food. When that happens your metabolism will slow down to preserve what nutrients it is getting. If you spread your meals out over the day (I eat 4 or 5 smaller ones), that may help keep your metabolism chugging along.

Your suicidal thoughts concern me greatly. I've been there recently but for different reasons. If they are more than fleeting, please seek help. My insurance covered the cost of seeing a talk therapist with only a small copay. If you feel you can't afford it, ask your healthcare provider for help. You are in my prayers.

    I understand your frustration I'm on so much prednisone I sometimes wonder why I even try to lose weight. It can feel hopeless.

Since you are a dialysis patient I would suggest you speak to a nutritionist and come up with a plan. A dietician would know how many calories you need to successfully lose weight. For a healthy person you might be eating too few calories which counterintuitively can make you gain weight. For your situation I don't know. I'm sure you have tons of dietary restrictions so having a professional help might be a huge help.

Best of luck!

    Please take care of yourself! Don't weigh after dinner-that doesn't make anyone feel better. I don't know what it's like to have a significant health issue like you do, but I'm sure it complicates everything. PLEASE seek help since you are feeling SO depressed. Do not try to do this alone! emoticon emoticon

    I eat 2 meals a day most days, I normally wake up around noon, so I'm too late from breakfast. Most days, I average around 1000 to 1450 calories. But I put on weight so fast, it's not funny! I'm getting desperate!

    I agree with everyone who posted before me. A-the scale doesn't weigh our worth and value as human beings. Put away the scale, and pick up the phone. B-speak with your physician about your anxiety/thoughts of suicide. Be totally honest. It takes courage, and you can do it. C-you're not eating enough. When our bodies don't ingest a minimum of 1200 calories a day, our bodies go into starvation mode and they actually retain weight, if not increase in weight. One meal a day is never going to be enough and could be very harmful.

Please keep us updated. Thank you for being honest in your post and putting this out there so we can help you. We are not doctors though, leave the doctoring up to your doctors. Please make a call first thing!

You are lovable and you are loved.

    I found your post to be very concerning...I don't know you but the word "suicidal" lept out at me. PLEASE call your doctor or your crisis center or anyone and reach out for help. You sound very overwhelmed. Don't try to do this all alone. There are people who care. emoticon

    Not hopeless. Please tell your doctor how you feel and what is going on- maybe you need to eat more or drink more- i know you dont process things the same as someone else- but your doctors really know best!

    No it is not hopeless!!! Don't be to tied down to the scale. There are other ways to measure progress and success. Pursue a healthy lifestyle and you will feel better. emoticon
