Terrific Thursday.

Thursday, December 18, 2014

I have been getting the house ready for guests over the Christmas and New Year's Holidays. Also, I have been enjoying writing a short story recently. Writing helps to keep my hand off of the fork and on the keyboard. I'm having a little trouble with the main character, but it will work out. At least, I hope it will. I am working with a recumbent bicycle now. It seems to be a very good work out for me.

Have a great Thursday everyone !!!

Don't forget your water. emoticon

  


Hurray!! 2 down

Monday, December 15, 2014

I will celebrate even the smaller steps because if I add up enough of them, I will reach my goal. I lost two more pounds this week. In addition to that, Doc says I can start exercising my foot more which means I will be up and around pretty soon. I feel like I am beginning to get back on track. I hate it when I backslide, but I have learned that is going to happen from time to time. I just need to work at making the backslides smaller and have a quicker recovery from them. I will lose the weight that I need to lose. I just have to keep the faith!

No walking? Ugh!

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Doc says not to do weight bearing exercises, not even walking. I will miss that. I had done well in the past with walking. He says that I can use a stationary bike or an elliptical machine. I have to be careful with my foot and my knees. Maybe when I lose more weight I can get back to walking, but the doc hasn't said that I could. He just said that my knee was not going to get better and the best thing I could do for it was to lose weight. I don't know which is better, the stationary bike or the elliptical machine. What do you think?

On my feet now

Friday, November 28, 2014

I am finally on my feet again. I have been in the wheel chair since Sept. 11. I can walk, but I am still shaky. My muscles and tendons in the foot that I had surgery in have to get stronger. Unfortunately I gained 10 pounds during that time. It seems like I should have lost weight because I couldn't get to food much during that time, but the church ladies are really good cooks (God bless them all) and I find that sitting there with very little to do except read and munch what they brought really got to me. I let my guard down over and over again. I am hoping to get back on track, but I have to take it slow with exercising. I couldn't even make it through the door in my wheelchair to get to the computer.

The thing I missed most was the positive attitude that everyone on sparkpeople has. I needed that.

    Hope you can continue to find encouragement from Spark..I have problems walking..as my joints hurt much when I try to get up or down from sitting. I am up to 15 min. walking in place and 45 min. on the recumbent bike..I have lost 25 lbs since July..and I am excited..but I know how I can slip up and start that down ward spiral..Yesterday was a day that I ate..and last night I had dessert..a few pieces to fill that old craving void..Today I am back on track..so if you would like ..we can lend each other a hand..encouraging each along the way. I weigh in at 238..and want to get to 180..which will be a hurrah moment for me..Anyway..find something to fill the time with that is constructive..such as the gal suggested knitting. I have been doing some sewing...and working on genealogy..What ever strikes your fancy. Hope to hear from you and again it would be fun to share our daily triumphs... Sharlene

  It gets easier. I was in a wheelchair for over a year due to accident. I was able to use crutches to help me get around. But it does take along time for the muscles to gain strength. I encourage you to move in the wheelchair as much as you can. I also took knitting up during that time to help occupy my time. Blessings on your journey

Homeless no more.

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Since the tornado things have really been spinning (pun intended.) I am into my new house now and finally have internet access. The Lord has been so good to us. I am grateful to Him and the Church as well as to all my friends who have kept us in their prayers and to those who have helped in other ways.

I have been off my food plan. I have eaten out so much I don't think I want to see another food place again. I have been doing really well at exercise though. Lifting concrete blocks, parts of roofs, splintered furniture, etc. really does a lot for the muscles.

My blood pressure has been down so well that the doc took me off of all my blood pressure meds.

I am really out of touch with everyone, but hope to catch up soon.
