Wow, I forgot how much support and inspiration there is here. Thanks to all the members who have commented on my page and blog and even my message board post looking for help working out in the wheelchair. I really appreciate the help. I've only been tracking for three days, but already I notice a difference. I even had a treat yesterday, and tracked it, but it didn't do too much damage. I think that's why I enjoy tracking my nutrition, you notice that you can treat yourself occasionally without harm. How else can you keep this up forever if you can't treat yourself?
I have joined a new team with weekly challenges to keep me motivated, and look forward to hearing from others who are on the journey.

It's now March of 2011, I am starting again at 200 pounds, but I think I may have set a more realistic goal of 130. I will still have an obese BMI, but I think that weight will be more manageable mentally.Since my last participation I have now been confined to a wheelchair part time, and my arthritis and fibro have gotten much worse.
I am not telling my family that I am doing this again, no expectations, just one day at a time.

I guess the heat and my lack of appetite didn't hurt too much this month. What really hurt was the lack of cardio. I'm down another 5 pounds. (and a few more inches).
My husband, in his understated way, (he never does this), said" I think that weight loss thing is starting to show".
I'm really having trouble getting in the exercise now that I'm doing my gradual back to work. I seem to expend one heck of a lot of energy getting into that office chair and sitting for four hours. (next week six). I know it's just nervous energy, but boy does it wear me out.
Any way, by next month I will be full time at work, and hopefully have a schedule worked out for everything. Maybe then I will let myself go on the stage 3 (I postponed, and stayed on stage 2 so that I could work all my new changes into my old work self.

It has been really, really hot and humid for about a week and a half now. I think I only made my targets once in all that time. I thought I was only supposed to eat when I was hungry. OK, but during this heat wave I have not been hungry at all! Most days I have only managed 800-900 calories. One day I think I totalled out at about 745! I know I won't lose any weight that way, but I just did not have any interest in food.
Don't even mention exercise! I break into a massive sweat just getting from point A to point B. Between yesterday and today, I think I've had 4 showers. I tried sweeping the living room and hallway today, and I could hardly see for the sweat in my eyes. (I apologize for the graphic descriptions) I haven't even thought of doing any cardio all week. I was lucky I went to the beach two days, at least I did some water aerobics there. I am not at all looking forward to weighing myself this week.

I've done it 10 pounds gone. Since the doctor was really reluctant to see me every month just to use his scale, and the bathroom scale was calling me everyday, I decided to use it more often. Last week after seeing the doctor, I came home and weighed myself here, I was 7 pounds lighter at home!. So today I weighed myself here, and added 7 pounds. I am down to 191 (down to, big lol) according to the doctors scales.
I can tell I am starting to make real changes though. Olivia made the most decadent pasta dish last night ( all cream sauce and cheese) and I had only a small spoon to taste.
We went out to birch cove (a local lake) last night and instead of just floating to cool off, I did some water exercises while I was there! Small changes add up.
