I am happy I did not put any weight on
Still weaning myself from chocolate and chips and cookies.

    emoticon Definately a great feeling to see those numbers go down, no matter if it's a big drop or just a little.

    I love that you end this with I am responsible. That IS the magic ingredient in this, isn't it? Us, we have the power to change our lives. You're making a great start, remember your goals and dreams when this road gets rough....lean into the curves life throws you, don't fight makes for a smoother ride.

Hi to everyone. It has been so long since I have logged on. The surgery was successfull, the recovery was about 8 months. All is going well now, but I have lost muscle tone and have now got a "saggy tummy fold" as well as weighing 90 kgs again!!...

Sadly my Mother, ( whom I have been caring for since Dad died 10 years ago) had a stroke and became bed ridden and blind. Mum was cared for in a nursing home by lovely, caring staff. She just faded away and went to sleep. Very peacefull. So my life has been coming to terms with the loss and handling Mum's funeral and legal duties. I was very weepy and sad for about 6 months, but I am going nicely now, so back to looking after myself.

Firstly to begin walking (or strolling) to get my body and mind freshened up.
Secondly to begin learn to control the things I eat and to have correct portion control. . I eat the correct caloric intake at each meal, the problem is in the afternoon and at night when I am not sleeping too well. Out comes the chocolate and the chips etc. So that sends the calories to double or more, to what I should be having. I am my own worst enemy to losing weight.

Tomorrow will be the start of meal planning and having low calorie snacks in place of the fatty snacks. Hope I can control myself this time. love from the old vintage model


had major surgery

Sunday, November 07, 2010

I am recuperating from major gyny surgery. all is well, no cancer. just a lot of stitches and very uncomfortable!!! so I am to do nothing but shower, get a cup of tea, walk slowly around the house and have my family do the shopping, cooking, vacuuming, lawnmowing!! they are really good to me.
It feels strange though, when I have been an independent woman.
sooooo.... eating kind of ok, but I am not doing any exercise...but my op is more important at the moment. being as good as i can...
hello to all, old vintage model

I have won the daily battle!! haven't won the war - many months to go yet.

I am pleased to say that I have followed sensible eating, as well as eating some fattening bolognaise my son made for me AND I was 1 calorie under my 1500 cal limit!! I was under the calorie limit today as well, thanks to your encouraging input and me being a Sparkperson emoticon Thanks emoticon
