No Gain in December

Saturday, December 01, 2012

I created a new challenge in my weight gain in December. I checked in today with my weight and will again on the 31st. The goal is not gain but to either lose or maintain. I'm so ready to make a change to my lifestyle.

Starting Over

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Today I'm starting over. I'm going to start small and work my way back up to where I was at when I stopped working out and watching what I eat and then I'll go beyond that to reach my goal weight. This is the heaviest that I've ever been and I could have cried when I weighed myself this morning. So here's to success... emoticon

Whispers of Encouragement

Sunday, August 26, 2012

I created a new team today and I invite everyone to come and join it.

I need to take control and start new, fresh and I thought what better way then to create a team. I recently purchased a book with inspirational quotes which lead me to name the team; Whispers of Encouragement. Let's face it, no matter where we are in life, or how well we feel we are or are not doing, everyone needs encouragement. I hope that others will join my team and help me to encourage, motivate, and support others!

Why do I do this???

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I loose a little bit of weight and then I just seem to stop eating right (biggest issue) and exercising...I get so disgusted with myself for doing this. How can I stay motivated to stay on track? emoticon

    You're not alone.
I'm in the same boat. Lose and gain the same 10 pounds over and over again and never seem to make it past that... For me, I think I'm afraid for some reason or another to commit myself to a total lifestyle change of exercising EVERY day. I know that's what it'll take to lose this weight and to look and feel my best. There is just something that blocks me from going ALL out. Probably the fear of failing again... you know, "why even try if I'm just going to gain it all back again?"

Well, I'm tired of it! I think we both should get off our butts and make a difference in our lives. Nobody else is going to do it for us!

Good luck to you in your quest for good health! emoticon

We were finally able to get one of her “episodes” recorded last week. She saw the cardiologist yesterday and was diagnosed with SVT-Supraventricular Tachycardias. Basically every heart has cells that fire off electricity flows; this normal operating electrical system is the basis for the heart muscle contractions. Natasha’s heart has a “short-circuit” meaning that cells that are not needed for this electrical flow are firing off which disrupts the normal heart rhythms.

Next week Natasha undergoes a procedure called Cardiac Ablation, she will be “knocked-out” and IV’s will be put into both arteries in her groin, a catheter will then be inserted in the IV’s and will travel up through the arteries into her heart, where the Dr will “map” her cells and identify the ones causing the problems and then cauterize them. This is a same day procedure that will take approximately 2 hours to complete. It has a 95% success rate, which means she will never have this type of issue again in her life.

    This is very stressful on us...I can't even begin to describe my anxiety and stress level right now, and it'll only get worse the closer "D-Day" comes. I do not show any of my anxiety/stress around Natasha or at home because I do not want to add to what she's feeling. I am her rock, but boy when I get away from home I have a hard time controlling it. I know it's a common procedure now a days, but it's not common to me or my daughter. I'll just be glad when it's over.

    I will be thinking good karma thoughts for you next week. I am glad it has a high success rate...but as Sami99 said, I am sure it is still very stressful for you and your daughter.

    I have done cardiac/peds icu nursing & this procedure is awesome-I 'm sure she'll sail through it & like you said never have any future problems. Of course you must be stressed-it's not easy to see your child go into the hospital.
Time for some big time spoiling!
