Prednisone is so destructive but necessary....

Thursday, December 09, 2010

Well last post was so positive. Today's not so much. I went to the mall yesturday to get a dress for my husbands Christmas party. In October I was wearing a size 6 dress. Now because I had to be on prednisone for 9 days a size 10 was too small for me :(. Now I have to wear a size 12 dress from last years party that I worked so hard to never wear again. I know its not me. I know its the medicine. That is an improvement to me. I used to take something like this and just give up. Eat awful and feel even worse about myself. I'm not doing that. I'm eating very healthy and exercising. So thats good. I am so bummed about this though. Sometimes just need to blog and move on. Hopefully this will help me today! Thanks for listening!

    So very sorry they had to put you on prednisone :(((
I am so glad none of my specialists ever resorted to that. They gave me everything under the sun, BUT that. Its really too bad they can't give you an alternative. There are lots of great medicines out there and new ones coming up all the time..I would push your Dr. for a better alternative if I was you (and if you could afford it). I am lucky my drugs are covered by my government or I would never be able to afford them..
You have the right attitude to deal with it. You have to keep up with good eating and exercise and hope for the best that you will be able to go off it soon..

    Wow! That's alot of water weight! Too bad their isn't a bit more time for you to shed it, but at least you know what caused it.

    You WILL lose the weight if you eat properly and exercise. I know it's not fair, but life seldom is.

  I can relate. I am asmatic, so I am on and off prednisone. It really kills all the work you do for weight loss, but I have no recourse.

Feel back on Track!

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

What a good way to start the holidays. I feel I'm back to healthy eating! This gives me hope for future binges. If there are any. It used to be I'd have a binge and just feel like forget it, it's over, I might as well eat everything in sight. This time in the back of my head I knew the right way to eat and had this feeling this wasn't the end. Just a step in the process. Thanks for the encouragement from those who responded to my last post. I needed it!

    Oh, I feel your energy! This is exactly the reality of our lives. There will be times - let's face it, we're human - where we will stumble but the difference now is that we get back up and persevere! Have a great, healthy week. And thanks for checking out my blog!

Halloween got me!!!!

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Wow I'm soooooo sick of all the crap I ate! First binge in 10 months. I feel awful! I know I don't want to do that again! I hope I can wear my cute Halloween T shirt today! I need help! I'm reading my spark groups. Sending in posts to my teams. Please respond. I need some feedback!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. That helped me find YOU! Dealing with yourself after a binge isn't fun. But I think you'll find that you'll handle it differently this time. Every once in a while life happens, right? One splurge does not a disaster make. But the deal is (& I know you know this) to follow the great advice of your friends. Just get back up and start your program again. Throw in a bit more exercise, and keep working towards your healthy goal.

Thanks again for reaching out to me.

    Just get back on the horse and return to what are now your NORMAL good habits, and no sweat. That binge will wear right back off. emoticon

    Exercise, exercise, exercise! See how much you can today. Go for a walk, take the kids to the park and chase them. Shake it off, today's a new day. You can make it a great day!

Thanks for responding to blog!

Thanks to those who commented on my last blog :) I was having a bad day and it really helped. I've been at maintenance for almost 6mths and still finding new situations where I would usually eat food to mask a feeling. Today just a down day, don't no why just am :( so blogging it out instead of eating. I think sometimes I just need to let the feeling pass and distract myself. I'm trying :) With my sister in law situation... she is in an abusive situation that I feel I need to distance myself from. Since the shower she has had the baby and my husband went to the hospital with his sisters to see them. Abusive boyfriend was there and they handled it. The sisters husbands didn't go either. They feel like me that its too volatile of a situation for us to be involved. My children didn't go either because being teenagers they know the situation and don't want to be around him. Its awful but manageable at the moment. Thank you again for commenting! It's the first time I've found others reading and don't feel as alone on those bad days!

Trying to move on

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

So I had a very bad few days. omg soooo awful. very close friend in hospital who they found has a huge mass wrapped around his heart. I have been helping with their girls but I feel totally helpless. I had an awful shower that almost everyone there made me feel like a pariah. I had a falling out with my sister-in-law a year ago and we have been estranged since. This was a baby shower for her and all but 3 people gave me dirty looks all day. It was sooooooo bad. I guess the only good thing that came out of the weekend is that I definitely did not use food to cover all my feelings. I felt sick from my feelings. I guess I'm growing. Funny how I can grow in that way but go backwards in how I should act. I can't get over this problem with my sister-in-law. I should move past it but so much has happened. I keep saying its awful but it really is. I think if I keep blogging about it I may find some answers that will help me. Thanks for being there spark community.

    So sorry you are dealing with all this :(( I hope they can do something for your friend. A real test of a healthy lifestyle is if you can stay on track during times of severe stress and crisis. Looks like you passed with flying colors!
Well done and keep up the great work!!
If there is any way you can think of to make peace with your SIL that you should try. Someone has to make the first step and since she is someone you have to deal with, it would be a lot less stress for you to find a way to get past what ever happened for this animosity. All the best with it.
