Small Victory!

Saturday, August 24, 2013

You know that dang black truck I keep talking about. Well...I still don't fit in the drivers seat....BUT the passenger side seat belt FITS me and is LOOSE!!!!!! Used to have to really struggle and "suck it in" to get it buckled and hubby had to buckle it..I couldn't do it. But today after James got the transmission fixed we took it for a test drive and I hooked the seat belt with ease and with room to spare...made me so happy!!!

Wish the truck had a tilt steering wheel...then I would fit in the drivers seat. Oh Well, it is one of my big goals and I will keep pushing towards it!!!!

    My hubby has a seat belt extender for our cars, and I keep hoping he will lose enough weight to buckle the belt without it, but we are not doing so well right now. emoticon

That is emoticon . I love those NSV, and I like it that you have a specific goal in mind that you are working toward. emoticon You are doing a great job.

Frustrating Plateau

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Well – I haven’t lost any weight since July 30th. That’s 16 days! I am not happy. I am eating the same way as I always do and I am working out every day! (TMI alert = I have been constipated for nearly two weeks…just going enough to keep me from going to the doctor – so that could have something to do with it)



I know plateaus are normal…I know I will eventually get past this, but it is so frustrating right now.



I have not gained any weight – for that I am grateful. I will continue my routine and wait this out. I WILL get past this and continue losing weight. I just have to keep at it and keep my motivation up.



Hope you are all having a great day




edit = 8-17-13 = It seems the plateau is over for now...I finally lost a pound!

    Thank you for the lovely images - I have frequent plateaus - went the entire month of June with only a .2 weight loss - keep in mind, I ate healthy, stayed in my ranges and balance of fat, carbs, and protein, exercised a LOT, did strength training and aerobics, and STILL lost .2 pounds. July, improved greatly, and now I am continuing my slow but steady pace. Constipation can REALLY be a factor and building muscle can too - frustrating but your attitude is wonderful and I try to remember that my weight loss tends to occur in a pretty erratic pattern. You will see the loss before long.

    Lots of good advice here. More fruits and veggies, less grains and lots of water should help.

I find that a change in eating habits occasionally helps to move that scale. Your body gets used to things quickly.

You will get past this!

SKYE996 8/16/2013 12:15PM

    Sorry to hear about your plateau, they can be so frustrating. Try Dulcolax for your constipation. I have used it in the past and it was very "gentle" on my system. This may not be the best suggestion but it has always worked for me in the past when I hit a plateau. Up your calories for a day or two then drop them back down to what you are currently eating. Sometimes that seems to re-jumpstart your weight loss. You may also want to switch up your workout routine. Your body gets used to what you are eating and what activites you do so it resets itself as if that is normal and not weight loss mode. Make some changes in your eating and exercising and you should see the scale start to move again. Oh, and are you taking your measurments? Sometimes it's not the number on the scale you see changing but the number on your measuring tape. Keep your head up! You WILL overcome this plateau!!

STRESS80 8/16/2013 10:20AM

    Constipation has a lot to do with it. Are you eating enough grains and freggies? Water is important to with that particular issue. I have stuggled with this as well. I hope you are able to void soon. You can do this as you have been doing amazing. Let me know if you need anything. I have 2 adult children with Spina Bifida and we struggle with constipation every day. So I might have some suggestions that could work for you too. Paula~

In the meantime, might I suggest measuring yourself? When we don't see improvement on the scale, we almost always find it on the tape measure. emoticon

    You know you are doing all the right things so just hang in there. One day you will weigh in and find overnight you've lost 5lb! Are you drinking enough fluids? People are right about the sodium, it makes me bloated if I eat too much salt. Love the pictures. The one of the yellow fat certainly gives us incentive to keep going. Just imagine what our insides look like ? So come on you know you can do this, you know how far you've come. There's no rush, it's for life. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Update and new exercise equipment

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Well, Life is going ok I guess. Daddy is very sick but hubby and I seem to be in decent health right now so I am thankful for that. Hopefully Daddy will get some better when his radiation is finished. If nothing happens he will be finished on the 14th of August.

I still don’t fit in the black truck – but I DO FIT in the grey truck (an s-10) I do not know why I can fit in an s-10 and not an R-10 (that is a bigger truck) but “thems the breaks” I guess LOL
I will fit eventually.

I am keeping up with my workouts. I usually do two of the turbo chair videos for a total of 44 minutes and then some strength training…plus my walking each day. I bought a pedal exerciser and have been using it for at least 10 minutes a day. I bought one off of the internet and it broke after 3 days! My Dad’s physical therapist told me of a store that sells overstock QVC items and that he got 20 of those exercisers for $5 a piece to use in his therapy business. I checked them out and they had more in stock and I bought one. It is very high quality and I am quite pleased with it. It basically does the same job as a recumbent bike without taking up any space and it came highly recommended by the physical therapy guy.




this is the qvc link - it is $33 there

I can recommend this one - the qvc one - even at the higher price

...do not get one of the cheap bolt together ones off of ebay or miles kimble - they will break
this is a photo of the one that broke


Hope everyone is have a great week and that your upcoming weekend is fantastic!


and yes - Amazon does carry the good one

    My son is paralyzed from a birth defect and uses this daily for 30 minutes twice a day and has built such upper body using his hands and arms to do the exercise with. That he is almost back to using his manual wheelchair part of the time. He had to go to an power chair about 2 years ago since his shoulders were shot. But when we are just going to a movie or such he now has the strength to use the other chair. ;) .... And he has not missed one day since he started back in October of 2012.. beats me as far as a streak goes. You will love it and built up good stamina and strength. . . Good Luck with your new equipment and keep us posted on your journey,

    I see a nob on the top. Does that allow you to adjust the tension? I think Kazzie is correct and you can use it on a table to work your arms. Looks like a good deal for you. emoticon

As for you, emoticon . You are doing a fantastic job with your weight loss.
Be very proud of yourself, and you will fit into the other truck soon. emoticon

    Thank you for posting about the pedal exercisers - I was looking at one on amazon and I wondered about how sturdy it would be. I think it's the same one that you posted about - so thank you for sharing your experience. I'm ordering mine! emoticon

    Sorry to hear about your dad, hope he is better after chemo. It takes a lot out of a person. The equipment sounds great and you are great for putting it to use. You still put me to shame and I must make more effort. I must say you are great at hunting out bargains. Keep up all the good work. emoticon

    I love my pedlar. I got mine through the Mayo Clinic. I use it for my legs and then sit it on the table and do my arms. Prayers for your dad. Keep up the good job. emoticon emoticon

Non – Scale Victory! Measurements!!!!

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

I’ve lost since July 3rd, 2013 =

3.25 inches from waist

2 inches from my hips

¼ inch from my neck

thigh stayed the same (not sure why)

½ inch from my calf

1 inch from my upper arm

5.75 inches from my band size!!!!! (WOW- I knew I had to order new bras – stretch ones - but I didn’t realize it was that much! I just thought my bras were old and stretched out)

    Yay!
I haven't had any measurement changes in a long while
but love hearing about yours. Yea, new bras, that will
be fun. I still pop the plastic rings on sexier bras, so
sturdy ones still in my drawer until some other day.

    Great job!! If you've been doing a lot of walking that may be the reason why your thigh measurement hasn't changed. Lots of walking could be leading to a little more muscle in your thigh. Just a possibility :)
