Embarrassed

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Last night I went to Pilates. I had eaten a salad with roasted chicken on it before class and the instructor was showing me some of the basics. Eating chicken was my first mistake. I usually get gas after eating chicken. I did a sit up and promptly blew out gas. I excused myself and said I was sorry. The instructor was nice and said that everyone has done it.

While in class with 2 other girls, I farted 2 more times. Again I said I was sorry but I was so embarrassed. The instructor mentioned that that was why she didn't eat before class. Little does she know that I can have gas at any time, not just after I eat.

I know everyone has gas from time to time and it's a natural occurrence, but it's still no less embarrassing when it happens unexpectedly.

Blood Test Results

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

My doctor prescribed some blood work and I am very pleased with the results. The last test had been done over 3 years ago.

My Triglycerides stayed the same 76
My Cholesterol dropped 35 points, from 236 to 195
My HDL dropped 16 points, from73 to 57
My LDL dropped 19 points, from 142 to 123
My Glucose/Blood Sugar dropped 6 points, from 86 to 80
My TSH dropped .35 points, from 2.28 to 1.93

All my numbers are either in the normal or below normal range, all good, except for the LDL, which is in the borderline high range. To be in the normal range I need to get it to
100 to 129. I'll work on it.

Thank you one and ALL

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

I want to thank EVERYONE for the birthday wishes. It warms my heart to see all the messages and goodies from everyone.

Today I actually have off from work, I think this is the first time since starting with the bank 10 years ago. I'm going to make up some cookie dough this morning before meeting our daughter-in-law and her mom at Red Lobster at 11:30 for lunch.

It's going to be an AWESOME day. Hugs to everyone!! Make your day just as awesome.

The loss of my KOPS status

Thursday, July 11, 2013

I have been a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) now for 13 1/2 years, most of that I have been a KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) and this year would have been my 10th consecutive year. In TOPS, once you reach your goal, you have what is called a leeway, which is 7 pounds below goal and 3 pounds above. Tuesday morning I weighed in on my scale and was 146.8, my goal weight is 145, so I was sure that I was back in leeway, even though I knew that the TOPS scale weighs me about a pound heavier, I still should have been safe. WRONG! When I stepped on the scale Tuesday evening it kept teetering between 148 and 148.25. The weight recorder wrote down the higher weight and I said no, I can't be, I'll lose KOPS. So she changed it to the lower weight. Well one of the other officers heard this but didn't say anything right away. She used to be a KOPS too and lost her status a while ago. She told another officer, who in turn told our leader, who then came to me and asked me to re-weigh. I should have said no because I'd already eaten a snack and changed clothes but I obliged and weighed again, out of leeway.

Now you can probably imagine how upset and mad I was but it doesn't stop there. After roll call, another member spoke up and said that she didn't think it was right for me to have had to weigh in again and lose my status over a quarter pound. Several other members agreed. That's when this vindictive person said, and I quote "I was a KOPS for 8 years and I lost my status, whoopee. What's it matter". I lost it!! I grabbed my things and started to walk out but turned around crying and said "you know, I have given a lot of years to this chapter. I've been an officer for many years and it DOES matter!! I'M DONE" And with that I walked out.

I cried all the way home, I cried on my husband's shoulder, I cried myself to sleep, what little sleep I got, and when I woke up, I cried some more. I was still crying some yesterday at work and it was hard to keep the tears back when I ran into our leader at Subway. We had a long talk. No one wants me to quit, except the person that said those hurtful and hateful words. I still don't know what I'm going to do but I may not go back for a week or two if I do decide to go back. I love TOPS and I love my chapter except this one person that thinks the world revolves around her.

Okay enough. Thanks for listening to my rant.

    I just came across this. I am a member to tops and I am not a Kop yet.. but, I do know this rule. If you are a KOPS and you weigh in over leeway, you have two weeks to take the weight off before you lose your KOPS status. So, there is something wrong with this picture.. Did your club not know this rule??

    Sounds like your chapter officers need a lesson in compassion and caring

    I have had weight recorders who were kind and realized my swelling could cause the gain. When it is a tiny bit everyone should pull for you. emoticon

    Donna,

I'm sorry to hear that you were hurt. People can be very unthinking and uncaring in what they say. Hang in there. You are loved.

    Do NOT let one person do this to you. You know what to do to get back in leeway so go earn that KOPS back! You can do this. The rest of the chapter is there for you. Go, take a week off if you must, but prove yourself stronger than the meany. She is a quitter and you aren't! emoticon emoticon

    Donna --don't let this hurtful person keep you away from what you obviously get some much support & enjoyment from. Seems to me she is just jealous of the success you've had for the past 10 years.
