Time to readjust again
Saturday, March 14, 2009      4 comments

Time to readjust again. Weight up to 132.1 but that is only sodium - I was *stupid* yesterday and consumed too much. Temporary weight gain. But after 3 weeks of flying around the 131.'s, I decided to shake things up and switched to *lose ... Read more

I sure do hope that *skinny sister* knows what she is talking about!
Sunday, March 08, 2009      7 comments

I don't know how true but I sure hope my sister knows what she is talking about! She said that while we are losing weight we will always have loose skin. But, she said that when we start to maintain our weight the skin will start fir... Read more

Today I read a post by PREDFAN in BLC#9 and she pointed out that even doing only 1 repeat of an exercise in a video that seems to be too difficult is better than not using it! Wow,... Read more

Yesterday was just such a blah day. Didn't want to treadmill or anything else for that matter. Then nighttime comes and I must go to Other Goals and log my day. Well, I logged and logged and then I came to the BLC#9 Team Goal, 12 week Str... Read more
Stuck in the 131's!!
Thursday, March 05, 2009      6 comments

Not looking for sympathy but I am stuck again! I have bounced around 131 for a while now but I know it will move eventually. Might be because of trying to step up my ST again. Every time I step up my ST, I slow down my losing. *sigh* Bu... Read more

If you have a replacement knee or know someone who does...
Friday, February 27, 2009      4 comments

If the knee starts to make noise when you move - not the normal clicking but sort of a grinding/squeaking sound - and it has been in your leg for longer than 10 years, go to your surgeon and have it x-rayed. Ray's knee actually wore out 2 y... Read more

This has been happening in person, not online. One reason for leaving my ticker with my starting weight has been just for the reasons some of you have stated - I want others to know that nothing is impossible with a little dedication. I am not... Read more
Gosh but it's cold outside!
Tuesday, February 24, 2009      7 comments

Having nothing to do with the title, I am having a pretty good day! I have been asked by so many people, "what do you weigh now?" And then the general comment is, "I don't even weigh that!" I don't know what the proper response to tha... Read more

Friday, February 20, 2009      7 comments

It looks like Ray will be another week at the hospital. It's difficult to explain but here they have the hospital and a therapy unit attached. So Ray was 3 days in hospital after his surgery and then went to the therapy unit. I miss him b... Read more
