Got caught up in straightening out the local newspaper and delivery, but as I am now retired, no sweat! I still went to the gym and did the arc trainer for 30 minutes and the full strength training workout. tomorrow I want to go for the water Zumba class, so I may not turn on the computer!

Loving my life in Colorado! emoticon

wow. almost 6 months since I made any notes on here. It has certainly been an eventful time! Had enough at work, put in for retirement (effective 4/1/14), sold my mobile home and moved back to Colorado. Most of that happened in March. It's a long story and I will blog about it later. Now trying to furnish an apartment and get my life back.
My retirement proved to me the job was killing me. I stopped stuffing my anger down and dropped 7 pounds the first week. sorry I didn't listen better to you Lord and quicker! Thank you for loving me anyway and supporting this move the whole way! Praise God!

Fooled around so long this morning, it is now afternoon! I went ahead and made me a tuna and tomato wrap for lunch, it was yummy! Now I'm fueled to go to the gym. I still need to wash my clothes, do my shopping and cook my meals for the week.

On vacation I visited a friend who went vegan this year and ate what they ate while I was there. I'm not sure I'll ever go completely vegan, but I will certainly start making more plant strong meals. His kids started eating vegan first! and now he and his wife have adopted the life style.

Sitting here is not getting it done! Make it a great day!

Back from the Florida rain! Had a great road trip, even with the rain, bought my first I-pod and loving it. My friend in FL has all my record albums and will load them to the Internet for me to download to the I-pod and have music wherever I go. Now I've got to figure out how to load my CDs to the Internet and get them on the I-pod. The wonders of the computer!

This year is so flying by! Workouts, work, last 3 weeks mandatory overtime (again). Getting ready to go on another vacation, thank you God! then I'll have to settle down, knuckle down, and just do it!

I've been bouncing around between 263.5 and 265 for the last 3 weeks and I know its because of my attitude about the overtime and just being tired of the work I do. But I've had some life successes, losing inches, eating better, working out longer, wearing the blouse that is in my signature pic that I basically haven't worn since the photo---I got too big.

The exercise is also helping in cutting down on my knee and back pain. I'm scheduled for a physical this week and hope to report better numbers there. Although the cholesterol medicine has already lowered that number unbelievably.......

Good luck Angie!

so far so good! Been on vacation all week and have not gained weight---next week will tell the final results.
Picked up some astralagus today, touted on Dr. Oz as a sleep enhancer and immune system booster, will check it out tonight. According to my Body Media I slept less than 6 hours last night, again. I slept better on my brother's couch this week.

Still stalled. My fault, lost my focus trying to focus on low salt, 300 calorie meals 5-6X a day, trying to change too much too fast. The salt is what is so discouraging, if they take away the salt, they add sugar or fat, take away the fat, they add sugar and salt, take away the sugar, they add salt and fat! I'm used to low fat and sugar, but now you want my salt! argghh!
I cleaned out my pantry last night to donate the food to the US Postal food drive, they get food, I get salt free. Trying to focus on fresh food, lose the potato chips, and other salty snacks, soups (my downfall--they are so low in calories and high in fiber AND SALT).
No more whining, on vacation for a week, have to shower, pack and hit the road. No computer for the next 5-6 days, so no tracking here. Have a good week everyone!

Plateau after plateau, thank goodness inches are going away a little faster. Been stressed, antidepressants not working. Anger boiling up when I exercise, but it is old stuff and needs to be let go. I need a mind and soul wash to flush out the toxic waste of the past. The gym will take care of my body. It is okay to be mad, forgive, get rid of it, quit being a victim of my own thoughts. A friend of mine recently told me they are all lies! She may be right! emoticon

Exercise and a huge salad to graze on all day and when I get home I don't want to eat. that is what I am finding. It's getting hard to get in all the calories I should be eating! emoticon

I always try to have a positive attitude and not try to do it all in one day. Living healthy is a process that takes time to develop those healthy habits. I am there. I wish everyone else the best in reaching their healthy goals.


I did my best today, tomorrow I will do even better.

woohoo! 1st month on Body Media got me over a 1000 minutes in activity! weight is still dragging, but my salt has been too high and calorie consumption. I've lost a little and gained a little and lost again. Found out what I already knew, I wasn't sleeping well, what I didn't know is there are nights where I'm only getting 5-6 hrs even though I spend 7-8 hrs in the bed.
Tomorrow is another day and I've got to come up with a better food plan.......... emoticon

Now that I can see the results, I love the Body Media! Now I partially know why I'm so tired, I was in bed for 8 hrs, but only slept 5-1/2, a yep, that'l do it! I burnt almost a 1000 calories in 8 hrs without doing anything but "sleep", so I know my restless leg syndrome is working.
I've got high hopes!

Hi, glad you have a job, and that it is a good one.
Each day make a start, that is better than giving up.
Maybe one day it will stick.

my word. another 3 months in limbo. BUT, I will never give up.

on the job, lost some positions, but still working in a great job for the same company

diet? what diet? but a d & c as out patient, and the colonscopy folks telling me I have to go to the hospital because of my BMI? time to do it

bought a body media monitor and connected it to Sparkpeople, it even tracks sleep, so I will learn more than before of what I'm burning vs what I'm eating.........

2-1/2 to retirement, I'll never make it unless I make the changes, it is now or never..... emoticon

I have allowed the suspense to wreak havoc with my good plans, again. They were supposed to start interviews on Monday and I haven't heard a thing. It could be I make too much money, they want to keep a cap on salaries in these new centers and I have been with the company 12 years, making a good wage.
I'm managing to make it through work during the day and trying to make healthy food choices, but a bit scatter-brained, I keep day dreaming of the West! I continue to thank and praise God for all the blessings He has bestowed on me, thank you, thank you, thank YOU God! Grateful and humble for one more chance to begin again, in Arizona, thank you God!

Well. Didn't complete the trick or treat 5K. Ended up working 65 hours that week due to "Superstorm Sandy". Luckily I had already scheduled a week's vacation for the next week so that I could work at the election polls. I rested up and got up on 11/6 at 3:15 a.m. to get to the polling place by 5 a.m. and was not dismissed until 8:30 p.m. Fun, but exhausting.

The next day I had my yearly exam with bad news from the blood work. I'm now on a low dosage statin for my cholesterol, I go back in 2 weeks for a blood pressure check, in 3 months for an A1C blood test for diabetes, I'm on the borderline, just missing it by .01. I also was referred to a gyn for a check up of my uterus, appears it is thicker than it should be and I had recent bleeding which is not normal when you are post menopausal.

It was time for my tetanus booster, so they gave me one with a whooping cough vaccine. Since I had the whooping cough when I was young, I was all for it---until I woke up during the night with an asthma attack. The next 3 days were spent between the bed and the couch. I went back to work Monday for about 2 hours and gave it up and came home. Today I called in sick for one more day to regroup and pound some more vitamins down.

With all that said, things are looking up for me taking control of my health. There is a plan in place to monitor the sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. I'm getting my innerworks looked at, and I started as a coleader for my hometown spark team, C-Ville Sparks. I've become much more active on the site, so much so I haven''t been here on my own thread for over a month! I"m back and I will keep trying.........never give up! emoticon

2 in a row may not be a streak, but it is a start! I made it to the gym and did the elliptical both days, 18 minutes yesterday and 30 minutes today. Tomorrow it will be something different, my hips started cramping when I got home.
Made a humongous salad for lunch which I'm just now getting to eat. Boiled some eggs to have to take to work and will make another salad to take for tomorrow.
taking small steps to nourish my body and mind......... emoticon

I am so blessed! This body is perfect, even if I am not.

Interesting times ahead, in work and life. It is a time of examination, reflection and growth.

Sporadic in my tracking, busy in work and mind. Life is a journey, spending some time stopping to smell the roses and look toward the mountains.

Have a blessed day!

thanks Charris. what a summer so far! after I settled down from Denver, my live in brother moved back home (after 18 mos). I bought a car, quit one gym, started another, road trip to NC, straight line winds tore up VA. WV and MD (I work in insurance claims), double duty overtime and this weekend back to "normal". hwoo.
I made it back to the gym for visit #3 today. 3rd time in 3 weeks. stopped at a "farmer's market" (one truck) and picked up some tomatoes, yellow squash and cucumbers. Got the car washed, went to work for awhile and then to the gym. Put a couple of screens back in the windows from the windstorm. Hiding in the house, it got to at least 104 today..........
hoping to pick up some greens tomorrow for salads, go back to the gym and get my wash and some chores done.
I don't know what a "normal life" would be, seems mine is a roller coaster, but I will NEVER GIVE UP trying to be healthy.
God bless us every one!
huggs...............emoticon

"The fat suit I've worn in the past allows for a lot of freedom of hiding in plain site."

I pulled that line from another thread, wow! That so describes me! The way I used to describe it: I feel like a ghost, no one notices if I'm there or not, they don't notice me when I'm there.

I have to think about that for awhile.

But not now, going to eat breakfast, read the paper, go work out, pick up some fruit and veggies, then home for chores.

Thanks for your prayers, Florence. Charlie died Friday morning. I flew out Wednesday, saw him Thursday for awhile and Friday made all the arrangements. Flew back to VA Monday, went to work today and talked to the boss for a bit, then came home.
I'm exhausted. I'm chilling out today, hoping to get some inspiration here (Sparkpeople) reading different posts and pages.
I'm at a low. It will take time to have a go at it again.

Well...............it went good for about 10 days. I got a call last night that my sil is dying from cancer. I'm off to Denver tonight, went to work just long enough to let them know, came home and went online for tickets, did my wash and packing, been playing games online since then. I won't be back until late next Friday, so this week will be all about making the best choices I can.

Such a week! it went slow and fast, seems like a long time out of work, but the days went by fast. Working on consistency again, tracking food and exercise each day. Nothing spectacular, but I want this to stick. It's more than diet, it's about how I will live the rest of my life, the choices I will make and what I will be able to do.
Back to work tomorrow, and planning on the gym. Have a good night everyone!

On vacation and waiting on the hired help to show up! LOL...........been up since before 7 clearing, straightening, putting away, sweeping, vacuuming. Mostly cloudy out, so I don't know if/when anyone will show up. Supposed to have some new skirting put on the trailer, a toilet seal replaced and windows/blinds cleaned today. I've been working so much overtime, I haven't kept up with my home. This week is about me and home............

Yup, gonna start real slow this time.emoticon
I've managed to start a mini streak (3 weeks) of going meatless on Mondays.
I signed up for 2 goals for exercise, 20 min of aerobic activity 3X/week and 20 min of strength training 3X/week
that's it. maybe in a month or two I'll add more, but that is enough for now. emoticon

I've really been struggling. put all my lost weight back on and then some.
On the plus side, I will be on a set schedule at work for at least the next 3 mos. They took off mandatory overtime for this week and I go on vacation next week.

Been down and sick and working way too much overtime with no relief in sight. I've got to shake it off, starting now. Now that my job is settled and I don't have to worry about going back to the department I left, its time to get it together.
I'm seeing an allergist on Tuesday and see if they can figure out why I can't breathe.
I'm going shopping for some veggies to make soup and salad for the week.
Do my wash and re-energize for the coming week.

Took my own advice and took another short vacation! Flew back to Colorado for my birthday and to celebrate 14 months smoke free. First vacation I did not gain any weight! even with all the parties.........I had a great time, the best ever birthday! now gotta recoop and get eating more fruits and veggies. I had my yearly exam and my cholesterol was up. I know I haven't been eating right, but I sure didn't expect that. So it is time to suck it up and get with the program. and I need to go grocery shopping..............lol

congratulations on the loss, keep doing what you are doing.
Your breathing will probably get better as the weight goes off. Hope that is it.
One day at a time , and when you mess up, just start over the next meal.
It can be done, but it does take determination.

Fat is being erased, yippee! I lost 3.5 pounds this week but I wish I had measured the inches. I can literally see the fat coming off all parts of my body. I'm not craving stuff, I'm satisfied with normal portions. I did not make my goal of 6 days at the gym this week. I went back to work Wednesday and that was it. Breathing is still a problem, so I made an appointment with my dr to get checked out on the 27th. I need the energy to deal with work and to exercise.

huggs,
Linda

Dang, vacation has been soooooooooooo great, I hate to go back to work tomorrow. I need to make sure I schedule more time off and not wait for just once a year. So far, so good on the no wheat plan. The truth be told on Saturday, if I've lost any weight. I haven't been hungry, or overeating, so maybe this will work for me............It is about time...............

Found this wonderful advice on Indygirl's blog.............

When you make a wrong turn on the road, your GPS does not go berserk, berate you and drive you off a cliff. It calmly tells you to get back on track.

Please be so kind to yourself. You'll get much further down the road.

Something I need to remember!

Linda, that sounds good, I know it is hard, but the sacrifices are worth it.
It is also hard to maintain, BUT I sure don't want to ever be my old weight again. Just hope God will always let me do it.
Remember others have made this journey, so you can to. If you mess up , and you will , I have so many times, the key is to JUST start back, never give up. I have scared myself at times. We need to remember we are humans.

Looked back at my reports, on 9/2/2010 I weighed 262, 9/2/11 I weighed 289. Its time to get it back down to 262 and below! I made the gym yesterday, had lean protein and veggies and yogurt/skim milk. The journey has begun!

Vacation was fantabulous! Under the Sea at IMAX in 3D was the highlight, it looked like you could just reach out and touch everything. squirmy--water snakes down my blouse, superduper--sea otter kiss!
And now rested enough to talk to my brother about his going home and living in his house, and he understands! So prayerfully that will be changing to everyone's good soon.
I'm off to the gym and then to get something healthy to cook. Going to do lean protein and vegetables for a week with some yogurt and skim milk thrown in, see if I can jump start healthy eating again.
huggs to all!

emoticon WTG Florence! You made your goal weight! emoticon

I'm starting again, like the turtle, slow but sure. Lost a friend to a stroke last week, God bless her! She was only 5 months older than I am. She had a host of medical problems, took early retirement but her body decided to quit the whole thing. So I decided, I'm going to retire while I"m still working! I"m going to treat my body with the respect if so deserves, I'm going to treat us both to good food, work outs, pedicures, massages, good books, good crys, and wonderful, blessed sleep.

But right now I have to get supper going for my brother and me (yep, he's still here) I've got a wonderful clay pot that I'm going to put a beef roast, potatoes, carrots, and onions in the oven for a couple of hours. It should be ready in time before he goes to work tonight and for me to pack lunch tomorrow.

baby steps. quit smoking the end of August, it is time to get the rest of my life together.
I've been trying everything and succeeding at nothing, so now I'm going to focus. On this thread, and what I do each day.
Went to the doctor yesterday and was told I have bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma--given a couple of inhalers and a round of antibiotics. No wonder I've been struggling! Slept 13 hours last night, going to treat my body well today and give it a chance to reboot.
I'm training for a different area at work and that cannot suffer, it is my livelihood. So today:
do my wash
cook a healthy meal to use for lunches this week
eat some fruit and veggies
drink water, take my vitamins
take my meds and get more sleep.
Hope everyone has a great day..........

my foot problem flared again today, so no gym. I took a muscle relaxer and I'm rolling my foot on the ball trying to get it to calm down. One time this afternoon I couldn't even walk, and I had to hobble out of work this afternoon.
there has got to be a better way!

Lynn, you can do this, start with little steps and work you way up, it want seem so hard.
You know that if I can do it you can.
Remember drinking water, and moderation. If you can string as many days together as you can of eating healthy, that will help you lose weight, when you are trying to lose there are no off days. When you reach your goal, then you can plan to eat more at times.
IF and WHEN you do mess up, which is normal, don't beat yourself up, just start over the next meal.
God helped my and I did not pig out for about 6 1/2 months, now I had times when I did eat more that I should, but not pig out. I have gotten scared because I over ate at night for about 3 nights in a row. BUT God let me get back on my journey.
YOU CAN DO THIS.emoticon

I have weighed and I have my work cut out for me.
First is to realize I don't need to be fat anymore. Whatever reason(s) I may have had, do not exist anymore. I've gotten rid of smoking, now its time to work on the weight. Best wishes to all!

Hi Lynn, hope that you get to feeling better real soon.
Well the holidays are over. I weighted this morning and I weighted a few oz. below my goal.
I am thankful to God for that.
Have a good day tomorrow.

sorry you've got the flu, I'm battling to not get it from those at work.....so far so good. Working on being consistent with the gym again, I'm looking at the same hours for the next couple of months, so it should be fairly easy even with big brother here. Just wish he would take a more active part in cooking and not depend on me to feed him all the time.......it will all work out........
