Off to a good start

Monday, January 27, 2014

I am hoping to meet a personal goal this weekend. In order for this to work I will have to exercise daily, track my food, and drink lots of water. Day one was a success. Now to hit the repeat button! emoticon

An Update

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

I am still on my journey. I have made some major changes in my life. I have almost reached the 25 lb. mark. I am continuing to exercise. I am being sensible where food is concerned. I don't have the dependency on food as I once did. That means I am not using food as my crutch. It isn't my source of comfort anymore. I am not abusing myself with food. And the result, I feel better than I have felt in YEARS! I feel like I am living again. I am active again. I am waking up with a sense of purpose and I have the energy to accomplish what I need to accomplish and alot of what I want to accomplish. I give God all the glory for without Him I am nothing. emoticon

    Way to go , Vick! Glad to see you checking in. Sounds like you have made a lot of progress! I still struggle with old habits of food for comfort but I am at least much more aware. I think the biggest accomplishment for me is that the realization that exercise is a MUST~gotta have it! AND I actually enjoy it. Best anti-depressant in the world. With that being said, I'm going for a run OUTSIDE right now~the SUN is actually SHINING today!

Determined for 2011 to be better than 2010. I was just not hitting on all cylinders so to speak. Must get some things balanced out this year and get back into life. So tired of sitting on the sidelines because of well...being tired! Have some challenges ahead of me but don't we all. Focus - Focus - Focus!

Embarrassed & Humilated

Monday, November 01, 2010

Hard to believe the last log in was in Feb. Wow, what a year I have had. I have been having issues with my liver function being elevated (ALT) for months without being able to find out why. I have had multiple testing done since April still no answers. I am at my highest weight EVER and feel pretty much miserable. GI doc told me I had to stop the yo yo dieting or I would not live as long as I should. Really makes you think do I want to set myself up for failure again? I mean I have been a weight loss roller coaster for the past 30 years!!! I have gained 40 lbs since last fall. And when I try to lose weight it just doesn't seem to want to budge like before. Had a very humiliating struggle to reach Clingmans Dome in TN a couple of weeks back and really want to do better. So here I am on a Monday on the 1st day of the month with Thanksgiving just a few weeks away. But at least I am here, and for now that will have to do!

    Vick, I just found this on your page TODAY! I didn't even know you had gotten back on here! Well, I am back too!

The truth about this weight issue and me is just a ton of excuses, I don't get any better cause I don't DO any better! "If you keep doing what you have always done, you will get what you always have!" I am tired of listeneing to myself. IF I truly commit to this, I WILL do it...and so will YOU! It is in our nature to do so~we are overcomers! All it really takes is making up our mind...plain & simple. emoticon

    Thanks Pat. I was having a bit of a pity party. I have had the liver level elevation for about a year. All tests and scans have come back ok so we continue to monitor. Now my phosphorus level is high also. I do believe all this extra weight is contributing. Consistency has always been my problem. So many times with me it is all or nothing. That is the mindset I need to overcome.

Thanks for the encouragement. Continuing the journey... emoticon

    You are much too young to start with the health problems. A lot is a state of mind and life changes. One day does not make us or break us, whether it be exercise or diet. Consistency is the name of the game, record your food intake and if you can exercise DO IT!! You do not want to wait until medicines have done damage that exercise is limited..

Only you can decide the diet and exercise that will work for you. We are all a bit different. Is the elevated liver ALT something new? Stress can create most everything. Control your diet and exercise and have blood work done every 3 months to see improvement. You can do it lady. I know you can.

2.4 Pounds

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Well, I didn't complete my food diary everyday this week and I didn't exercise as much as I should have but somehow I managed to drop 2.4 pounds. I am grateful for that.

Winter continues to drag on here and it is very hard for me to get moving because of the cold and dreary days. The last month I have spent in a fog because I had to try a generic for Requip for my Restless Legs to see if it would work. Well it didn't and I have spent everyday being so groggy I could barely function. Finally I was able to get my my ins. co. to let me go back on the drug that did help me which was a generic for Mirapex. Now I am slowly but surely coming out of the fog.

March 1st starting on a Monday, isn't that really cool for us dieters? So I will start week two and try to build on week one. I will be so much happier once the days begin to get warmer and we can have some sunshine, but the cold is still hanging in for this week. Patience...

    Great job, Vick! Hope I do as well tomorrow. I just have to tell you...I am depressed. I am fighting the feelings like crazy but life seems to be a chore right now. I have cried most of the weekend for no real good reason.I honestly think it is the weather. I just have to have sunshine to kick the blues! I feel like I am going through the motions in a fog as well but I don't have anything to blame it on! I am sooo proud of myself for sticking with my program in spite of my feelings though~HUGE success for me! emoticon

    WTG,2.4 lbs. We all know there is hope. And I mean that for the weather also. I had just hoped to lose enough to fit my spring clothes. So I don't mind waiting a little longer. Keep up the good work.
