The last day of a busy, crazy month. I hope I can get some things accomplished before I go to the doctor. I'll be getting a shot in my spine and I'm not good for much afterwards. It's time to start cleaning and getting ready for the holidays. I really like to be done with a lot of my stuff before Thanksgiving. I like to kick back, watch the holiday specials and spend time with family and friends during the holidays - not go crazy trying to do too much.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I am no longer officially obese!
Cleaned the Closet.
Did 40 Min of Cardio.
About ready to go out for lunch - thinking, maybe, Olive Garden.
Will do Qi Gong this afternoon.
dd and fam are coming down this weekend - he pushes my buttons, and she follows suit. He has stolen money from my car; she paid it back, stumbling on her words because she was so embarrassed. The dgd's are picking up his high-and-mighty the-world-owes-me attitude, and dh says for me to keep my lip buttoned. Ooops. Calm thoughts. Calm thoughts. To say that I'm not really looking forward to their visit would be right on.

It's a dreary, damp Sunday. So I suppose it's a good day to get some organizing done before I go to my sister's to celebrate my Mom's and niece's birthdays.

It's a beautiful Saturday and I haven't been outside yet. I did delete a lot of files on my computer and go through some recipes, though. Time to go walk!

Afternoon everyone! Happy Friday!

Patty hope all went well at the Dr.'s and that you have a great day at work!

MOOMSHINE~ So glad you had a good day. Hope today is good if not better. That is GREAT news about your son.

I finally am getting relief from my fibro. I am so thankful, because for days the pain was off the charts. My Dr. upped 2 of my fibro meds and so far so good. My anxiety is not too bad, but I feel like I am so far behind on my apartment and sparking. I know I can only do a little here and there, yet I want to get it all done. lol Sometimes I wish I could hire a maid.

Have a great day!

8-) Thank you, Cynthia. After my wine, I learned my eldest son completed the Lake Tahoe Ironman in 34 degree temps; he said he wrestled with accepting a DNF, but ended up completing in 11 hours. You're right: 17 pounds doesn't mean a heckofalot!

Hi and Good afternoon! Sorry to post thread and then go MIA. I have been battling fibro pain and it's trying its hardest to win and beat me down.

Glad to see y'all participating. I hope to be able to check in more often.

MOOMSHINE~ emoticon I believe you can reach that goal. emoticon looking at the whole 17 lbs and just take it one lb at a time. It's much easier to deal with a lb than 17. Also remember that the number on scale doesn't always measure our true progress. There are inches lost and how clothes fit that are measures too.

I am anxious a bit today because of my pain levels being high, but the anxiety is manageable.

I hope everyone has a good day and that your anxiety will not take you captive in fear.

Take Care.

Good morning,

I woke up fairly stress free. I just have to focus on my plan for today and that should reduce some of the anxiety.

I woke up calm, but am working towards a panic because I need to lose 17 lbs to meet my December goal, and it looks as if I won't reach it. I don't want to change my goal and admit defeat - especially since I still have 40 more pounds to lose after December. Dang it!

Check in

Trying to figure out my level of anxiety at 8:30 in the morning.
I am starting to panic about the many things i have to accomplish. The voice in my head saying you never do this or that is fairly quite today; so that is a blessing. I will just have to see how today goes.

Best of luck to all. Lets try a anxiety light day.

Part of my anxiety is due to my food allergies, so I have made a big step to make sure I am not eating anything I am sensative to, we all cheat saying its ok but in reality it makes a huge difference I can be happy one minute and deopressed or full of anxiety the next and eating the wrong foods does not help.

I don't mind
because
It doesn't matter

I don't think I invented that, but the visual gives me cause for pause. It's difficult to separate what does matter from what doesn't matter, especially when you're in a high-anxiety mode. For me, losing weight, and letting go of anxiety are almost seasonal; and one definitely can lead to the other. Interestingly enough, the fix for one can also be the fix for the other: Cut back on the junk food, and add exercise - both are good for both. 8-)

Hello all,

I woke up at 4:30 in the morning in the middle of an anxiety attack. I managed to decifer why i was so on edge. The reason avoidance, so i starting jotting down ideas to combat the horrible feeling. As we all know anxiety is crippling and you have to fight against it. So i begin my fight again. I not sure what is worse weight loss or anxiety.

Another crazy day to end the week. The electric company came out to do an energy check and wouldn't come in the house because he was afraid of the dog. I was late to my therapist appointment. Still behind on homework and housework. Still plugging away.

the sun is shining.
one of the caregivers comes today so I can get a break.
I get to walk my sister new dog.
the house is calm and quiet right now.
my garden is still alive in bits.

this list is a bit of a stretch but I has not been a great day so far. My anxiety is quite high

I looked last night when I got out of my class and it was almost full. It usually affects us for about three or four days. I still feel a little stressed and out of it this morning. It will be nice to make it through the week.

I think you may be right. I looked online and the full moon for September 2013 is on Sept. 19th - that's just a few days away, so I'm pretty sure we're close to a full moon now. I've always heard that full moons affected people, too, and I believe it. I mean, if the moon can affect the ocean tides, why not us? Maybe we'll all feel better after the full moon is over. I surely hope so!

I wonder if there is a full moon tonight. Usually stress is high and people are different when there is. Scientists actually say that because the moon affects the tides and people have a lot of water in them that it affects us too. My mom always worked with the public and always told me that. I didn't believe her until I started working with the public.

I always have anxiety (OCD), but today it's sky-high - several extremely stressful family situations.

Ah well, I'm sure tomorrow will be better.

Wishing everyone well,

It's a stressful day today. Watching my great-niece and great-nephew and the puppy and cat. Nephew got to be picked up from school and taken to the doctor. My dh was supposed to call - I really don't want to talk to him anyway. He's trying to get me to come down and visit with him on his schedule. We've been separated legally for three years, Why would I do that now?

I think it's important that we check in with each other and support each other and I know we already have a chat thread, but it might be lost within all the other threads. So I thought each Month I would post a New Chat forum.

I hope you will check in often. Share your goals, victories, struggles. We want to know how you are doing!

Happy Chatting! emoticon
