    7/23/2017 1:23:43 PM, by SOLSTICEWILLOWE

    The past seven months I barely went to the gym. My brother passed away in my house and I lost interest in everything. i went to the gym six times in those 7 months. Last week I was at the gym twice so I'm making progress. I was also taking an online course and lost interest there too. I'm a few mo... Read more

    7/22/2017 9:17:33 AM, by AUNTRENEE

I finally got the 10 pounds that I gained while my dad and I were in Minnesota in May plus 2 more pounds off. At lea... Read more

  • I'm thinking of...

    7/21/2017 3:35:36 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    This coming Monday I'm thinking of mowing the yard and do some trimming since that day is going to be cooler that day. But it'll have to wait until I get back from my doctor's appointment with my lung doctor. I feel somewhat okay enough to do them both. The surgeon didn't say that I couldn't. I feel... Read more

  • Too hot to do anything

    7/20/2017 6:12:47 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well its too hot to do anything today. Can't go out and go for a walk because its above 90 degrees outside. So it looks like I have to do something inside. I am not sure what I want to do yet. I took my dog Lady for a walk up and down our street this morning before it got really hot. It was 78 degre... Read more

  • Lot the 2 pounds that were gained

    7/19/2017 4:45:23 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, I lost the 2 pounds that I gained. Was at 199 pounds and now back to 197 pounds. It feels so much better to be back to that amount. But at the appointment today I went from 221 to 213 pounds according to their scale. So I lost 8 pounds there. I have another doctor's appointment coming up on Mo... Read more

  • No change in weight and not back in the 200s

    7/18/2017 5:36:24 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    There is no change in my weight. At least that I am not back in the 200s. I am so close in going outside (where its in the mid 80s) and pick up sticks in our yard. Not just for the exercise but its something to do. I'm bored. I need to get some exercise anyway. Tomorrow is the day that I get m... Read more

  • Gained 2 pounds but didn't go back in the 200s

    7/17/2017 11:50:34 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, I gained 2 pounds. I was at 197 pounds but now I'm at 199 pounds. I'm just glad that I didn't go back into the 200 pound range. I ate some foods that I shouldn't of ate yesterday and I didn't get as much exercising in as I wanted. We had a concert at our church last night. It was an acapella b... Read more

    There is no change in my weight right now. So I'm stuck at 197 pounds. But I have some time until my next 2 doctor's appointments. I have one coming up this coming Wednesday for my surgery from 8 days ago with the doctor who did my carpel tunnel surgery. I have another one after that on the 24th wit... Read more

    Well, I lost another pound. I was at 198 pounds yesterday and now I'm at 197 pounds. I was at this weight when my dad and I went to Minnesota back in May.

  • Finally broke the plateau

    7/13/2017 9:15:26 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I was beginning to wonder if I was going to break my plateau of being at 200 pounds. Well, I did. I lost 2 pounds and now I'm at 198 pounds. It feels great to be back out of the 200s (again) and back into the 190s (again). I'm a pound heavier than I was about 2 months ago when we were in Minnesota f... Read more

  • I hate plateaus

    7/12/2017 10:21:02 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I hate plateaus. I have been stuck at 200 pounds since Sunday. I'm hating it. Can't do much exercising with the 1 hand being bandaged up from carpel tunnel surgery & its too hot to do it all outside. And we have had storms since Sunday night. I thought that I would be lower on my weight by now. At l... Read more

  • I keep on trying--and getting nowhere

    7/12/2017 12:05:06 AM, by DEEDEEGRAM

    So here it is. I try different types of methods to lose weight. I am always looking for that "magical solution". There is none. My latest one was trying the Weight Watcher Point counting system again. The newest one and also the previous one. That would be the Smart Points and the Points Plus. I did... Read more

  • Lost a pound and pain is almost gone

    7/10/2017 9:57:42 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, I lost a pound yesterday so I'm now down to 200 pounds from 201 pounds. I'm surprised that I have been losing weight with the way that I've been eating and the amount of exercising that I've been doing. I am not sure how much walking that I will get outside today. We're suppose to get rain and... Read more

  • Getting Back On Track

    7/8/2017 7:22:52 PM, by TAMMYD45

    Okay, it is time I start to take my health seriously. Yes I may need a powerchair, but there is still things I can do. And who knows, I may be able to cut back on how often I need the chair. Or at least get out of it more. I am tired of being 300 lbs. I have never been over 300 lbs before. ... Read more

  • The day after surgery

    7/8/2017 5:31:17 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, its the day after my carpel tunnel surgery on my left hand. I didn't get the pain med that the surgeon wants me to take because my insurance won't cover it & I can't pay for it. But I have been taking Tylenol and its helped a lot. I am not in much pain. Even trying the best that I can to type ... Read more

  • Surgery day

    7/7/2017 6:22:27 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, my carpel tunnel surgery on my left hand went fine. Got there just before 6am and was out a little after 9am. Couldn't get the pain med because it was too much money & they didn't run it through my insurance. So I have to wait until tomorrow to get it. I am taking OTC pain med until then. I am... Read more

  • New Beginning

    6/26/2017 1:27:24 PM, by MINI-ME2BE

    I knew I was regaining all the weight I worked so hard to lose. Job stress was the first sign, knee surgery the second, and inflammation of the hip the third. Not to mention lack of enthusiasm and consuming additional sweets. SO easy to fall back into bad habits. Well, here's the scoop and the ... Read more

  • Trying to think of ways to do things with 1 hand

    6/26/2017 10:04:06 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I am trying to figure out was to do things with 1 hand when it comes time to have my carpel tunnel surgeries. Its been too long since this has happened. It was 1995 when I had my left arm in a cast after I broke my wrist in high school after trying to learn how to roller skate. I did last night when... Read more

  • Trying to keep pain at bay with some exercising

    6/25/2017 4:13:29 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    I'm trying the best that I can with the carpel tunnel pain at bay with some exercising today. While at church and having lunch it was horrible. Couldn't hold the hymnal without being in pain. Instead of having my hands flat or holding it at the edges (when open) without having pain. So I made fists ... Read more
