    It's hard when you've lost the weight and then regained it. I know. I regained 80 lbs over the last 2 years. There is no point in being hard on ourselves for what is past. Like you say, we can do this & we will!

    I always like to hear about restarting. Doesn't that mean we get tired of the bad habits we are currently doing? Maybe that is why I am constantly starting over!!!

starting over

Sunday, May 18, 2014

Up to 236lbs gain 30lbs the past 4 months. Changes in my live in those past months, my boyfriend moved down to Missouri and he loves to cook and he hates chicken. Pretty much stop watching the calories. He was use making food for four people and has scale back to three that is counting my lunch for work. I'm very uncomfortable exercising in front of him. he does not have a problem with me exercising it just me, So I stop exercising at night. Started having hot flashes pretty bad. Yep, blood work confirm starting menopause at 45. I don't sleep good at night anyways and oh man its worse with the night sweets. No energy in the morning to exercise. I don't like my body and the way I feel.


I'M Started B12 and some over the counter medication that the doctor ask me to get to help with the hot flashes to take at night. Did my exercise this morning, going to do the lawn. Have my exercise pick out for the morning so I know how earily in need to get up and finsh it. Closes in the truck to change after work to walk, if some reason I don't walk (weather) to do one exercise video at night. Sign up for my third 10k marnies walk/run. Burt will make chicken for me and him his.

Getting back on track

Friday, February 28, 2014

A lot of changes this past month. Mike was in the hospital for almost two weeks, one week in ice. He is on hospice now, but doing great. I believe he will be discharge from hospice the next couple of months. 30 years later, My every first boyfriend at 15 years old ,got in tact with me last year and we are together now. He moved here from Calf. He is so good with mike. Mike response to him and his voice. He has helped me more then he would every know just being their for us ,when mike was in the hospital. One problem he loves to cook and is use to cooking for 5 people. He is doing better cutting down on the foods, but he does not like chicken, which I can eat every day. So working on that. I have not exercise in about a month and gain 21 lbs back, my uniforms are so tight but refused to buy a bigger size. I think one reason is I don't like workout in front of burt due to my body, large stomach area. I know I have to get past that and i'm trying. Had a good workout with Jessica smith this morning and feel pretty good

    My hubby cooks for five when he cooks. I solve the problem by bagging it up in freezer bags or containers and putting it in the freezer. Then when we have a day we don't want to cook we don't have to.

I am sending prayers for Mike.

    I am glad your son is doing better - that had to be super scary! I almost lost my son 4 times last year so I can really say I feel your pain. I am back to focusing on me again - keep logging in and you will be motivated!

    I am so grateful to hear that your son is better. That whole experience must have been devastating for both of you. Such a stressful time. We are waiting at the Turquoise Titans to help you get started again. You are not the only team member who wants to rev up their program. emoticon together!

    Glad to hear your son is doing better. Understandably, with what you've had on your plate it's been difficult to take care of yourself.

Getting started again can be such a challenge. I know from my experience this winter. In January I just had to get back to it and just kept putting it off day after day. What I realized I needed to do was focus on starting slowly again. I don't know if you're also finding that you want to pick up where you left off. I did in some ways and found it easier when I decided to start slow again. I went back to small challenges which seemed minimal compared to last fall's accomplishments but accepted that they were more than nothing. I had to celebrate the small steps again to get to get back to where I had been. (I'm still not there but contend with the journey to get there.)

Thought I'd share my experience hoping it might help in some way. Each of our journeys is personal.

emoticon One step at a time.

You've had a lot going on. Good to hear your son is doing better. Sometimes when I run out of steam, I keep a bowl of washed fruit on the table and make a point of having some with each meal. It helps me getting eating better.

    IO think the stress in your life has made you tired. May I suggest a yoga class or a video? This will not only help you to get started moving, it will help center your mind so you can relax. I am so happy to hear your son is better.
