ahhh.....

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

i finally got some time to RELAX in the pool not just go in for exercise. I also joined TOPS last week to keep myself more accountable. I've been pool jogging...when it gets too easy one way i turn and fight the current the other way. hopefully it will pay off!!!!

    I add some pool walking (not jogging yet!) to my swimming and honestly, I find that it is more challenging on my muscles than swimming is! Keep it up, Holly!

My Mum belongs to our local TOPS chapter. I hear that they're very supportive!

    Ah, to relax in a pool! It is a nice treat, indeed - were there any kids being noisy and splashy? Even better if there were not. :)

    Hey girl!

I'm getting more familiar with how to use SP. So, I thought I would drop by and say hello. I'm on day 3 now. I have continued to cut my calories each day! I'm so proud of myself. I feel more confident already. Here goes...... My prayers are with you on your surgery. I don't know what kind you are having but I had surgery in Feb (abdominal hysterectomy) and I'm still getting over that. Some complications still keeping me from exercise, but eventually I will get there.

Anyway, take care and stay in touch. I will always remember that YOU were the first person on SP to contact me and make me feel welcome. And for that I am forever grateful!

HUGS!!!!!

    Will you be able to take some time off after your knee surgery for recovery? I hope so! If I was in the area, I'd totally come to the bakery and bake up a storm for you.

    I know your medical problems are affecting your weight loss, but I have to wonder if stress and sleep deprivation are also hurting you. You need to think of rest and relaxation as being as important as diet and exercise! You deserve to be healthy, and my fingers (and toes) are crossed for this surgery!)

    Ah, I can sympathize, sister. I just moved back to Las Vegas and it is

    Most days I love the heat if I am out in it. Don't want to be in the house/or atwork and hot or driving when it is hot. I am the oppisite with the cold. Hate to be out in it, but don't mind it if it is in the house/or at work. Hope you get cooled off soon.

    I'm singing the same song, Holly! 90+ every day for the last week and a half. All I can do is stay inside with the fans running and drink lots of water. I've always said that I want a walk in fridge in my next house -- so I can live in it in the summer.

Think cool thoughts!

    This extreme heat is totally irratating. wish it could just be 70 all the time!! the swelling is a pain as well. I too, am feeling the effects and don't eat so well either. Hang in there, hopefully it will subside soon. emoticon

    I'm with you on the heat. I prefer a nice upper 70's/low to mid 80's day. Anything over 85 just gets to me and I hate it. My sister lives in Southern Utah and it's usually over 110* in the summer. Yuck! Thank goodness for AC!

I hope you can get in the pool today!

ok so this is to fulfill one of my tasks for this week.
I went to the cardiologist today and he says all is well. although he laughed out loud at the knee guy saying i was too fat for the operation and then the bariatric guy saying i'm not fat enough for the lap band. sigh. such is life....

thses dr's can be very frustrating!!!!...............you need to find someone who is on your side...............best of luck........blessings and hugs...............lita

    So happy that all is well.!! Wish doctor's would get on the same page. The doctor I have for my knee surgery, says "in the perfect world, to lose weight to get the surgery would be ideal. But that is never the case, and why suffer more until that time." He has his own Bone and Joint medical business. He gives the success and statistic's on outcomes with people of all weights. He believes that the quality of one's life is extremely important and wants to make sure they get a fighting chance. Hang in there girl, I'd be looking elsewhere for another knee dr.

    I'm glad "all is well" but after he stopped laughing at the other doctors, did he offer any useful advice? You seem to be caught in one of the seven hells! FYI, the jerk doctor I dealt with on Friday didn't even bother to examine me. He just told me that all he could suggest was surgery ... and you and I weigh about the same ....
