TOPS june 3rd 2010 weigh in 290 1/2 2.5 gain.

Friday, June 04, 2010

I was up this week 2 1/2 lb. but I will not get discouraged. It was my birthday week and I at low fat muffins that I thought were low fat but lots of sugar. Can't eat just one so off the menu it goes. Will do better this week I say. Went to the pool and gym once so far. going tomorrow on Friday. Feel guilty but must get back on that journey without to long in the pitty pot. I can do this I tell myself. Let's see how this week goes. I will try harder to watch my intake of food.

Monday, May 31, 2010

Finally in the 80's and going down this week. My birthday was yesterday the 29th and I did have birthday cake and a vanilla cone from Mcdonald's . Can't shake those cones yet but today I did not have one. Felt antsy but made it through. Wa up on the home scale this morning. Found out last week that I have arthritis in both my knees but not my ankle. My left knee does hurt quitte a bit. Ws told by Dr. to go on a bosa ball. (Half the ball at the gym and balance my weight on it. will help hips as well. My goal this week is to go to the gym and pool mon. wed. fri. I hope to have down the 2 pounds I have gained since weigh in at TOPS on Thursday plus something new. I am trying to eat more as well this week from the low gi foods as in the gi diet by Rick Gallop. got the book from the liabraray. Even though I am not diabetic yet it is supposed to be a good way of reducing weight. It is a great book. I will see what happens.

I stayed the same this week. Last week I did not write in. I will try hard this week. I need to keep in mind that my health is my #1 priority. I got the tests back and even the Dr. was amazed that my cholesterol, blood sugar etc. was within normal range. I also had an exray done becaue my left knee has been in pain. Well I have arthritis in it actually in both knees. The right has more arthritis but no pain. So there it is. I now have to exercise my knees and hips to get strengh as well as keep losing weight. I will go FMonday to the Gym and pool again to help myself. This week I hope to be down at least 2 pounds. Spending time with family has been great this week.

A one poiund gain in 2 weeks. Did not blog last week. I will try again this week for the better. I am still writing feelings down for the councelling session next week. I am to write any negative or positive feelings I have about myself as well. I have been writing a food diary sheet last week for TOPS and I hand it in to keep me honest. It did not work last week but will try again. I have to make this a priority. My health is not that great. I am getting blood tests done again to see where things are at eg no diebetis yet, etc. I will try to eat more low gi foods or at least cut down on my dinner portions and limit ice cream treat this week until Thursday.

  Hey that's a really nifty idea on having dessert on Friday night. Do you make your desserts yourself or do you go out?

apr 15th, 2010 TOPS weigh in 291 lbs. I'm back again.

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Am seeing a councellor these days. She asked me to write down feeling words as in when I want to eat something not on my plan to ask myself why I want to eat this, then pay attention to the feeling. Even if I decide to overeat at least mark it down. For 2 weeks the main feelings were worry and fear. sometimes comfort, disappointment (in self).

I am to continue on that path as well as journal all the negative things I say to myself and positives if there is any. Today I ate an icecream. Justified it but never feel good after having it. Still have pain in my lower back from arthritis as well as tired from sleep apnea alot. I will try to get the mask maybe after summer allergies again to help me if I don''t lose more weight. The positive is that I have hope I can do this. I am not happy where I am at but am inspired by sparkspeople. My goal is to get into the 80's still and try to work out starting monday even if it is 15 min. minimum a day. My food today was not bad but still need to count calories and watch portions especially at dinner. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. I hope I can keep writing in here and commit myself at least on Thursday's after weigh in. I will try to keep the journal for myself and the counceller until I see her May 6th.
