The pool at the gym is still closed today. It's been two weeks already. They are waiting to renew their permits. With the result I have been somewhat lax in my exercise. However, doing okay in eating right. Have a good day everyone.

Thanks Suze, Diane, Sheryl and everyone!

OK I am not complaining, but the results of the ankle x-ray came back and I have a sprain and a heel spur. Next doctor visit is podiatrist. I would feel better, but I always have a reaction to antibiotics. I am dizzy when rising and walking. Sitting and laying are fine... Once everything is fixed, I should be fine. What next? Tired of being sick, tired of doctors. Only good thing this week is that I have lost weight and inches, but I don't expect that will be the case next week.

Took DH to doc this morning as he has had lump in stomach. Dr. said it's hernia. We are relieved.
Going to try to use stepper cause being home and sick haven't walked. And if I don't walk, I won't be able to

I stay away from those high carb foods; including gassy ones although broccoli doesn't seem to hurt me. Eating less also helps. I remember my mom's analogy. She said our tummys are like a garbage disposal; put too much in and it overflows or won't work properly. Some truth to this. As we get older most of us just can't eat all we used to eat. I know I nor my room mate can handle lactose. I don't like milk anyway but she gets lactose-free milk. I like cheese and it doesn't bother me if I eat small. Sugar is a culprit..will hurt most of us. Take one day at a time.

Diane, be glad you have not had inflammation. There are some nasty unmentionable side effects too.
Diet: you can eat a high fiber diet but no seeds, really grainy foods, popcorn or really gassy foods. Right now I am on solids, but it has to be mild, cooked vegetables, white bread, peeled fruit and liquids. The veggies right now cannot be cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower or beans.
Missing in-laws today and party. emoticon It is more important to keep resting and getting better.

Thanks, Linda, for clearing that up for me. Did the doctor tell you what foods you should avoid and what to eat? I def have it also. They told me at my colonoscopy. So far it hasn't inflamed like yours did.
CONGRATS on losing the inches and weight!!!!!!! Enjoy the pluses.

I had a colonoscopy two years ago and they did not find anything! This is something new. Diverticulosis is the presence of "pockets" in the intestines. Diverticulitis is when they become inflamed and infected. Doc explained it yesterday. I have diverticulitis and taking antibiotics.
I think popcorn was the culprit. I will never eat it again.
I am feeling better, but still resting.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! In-laws are coming this weekend, I hope I am up to it. They are not visiting us, but expect us to come. They are visiting dh's aunt and uncle in Sun City.
Took all measurements and have lost inches plus weight!

So sorry Linda about your diagnosis. I was given a similar one when I had my colonoscopy a few years ago. It was either diviticulitis or diviticulosus..can't remember. But the doctor told me to eat more fiber rich foods. On Atkins, I do. I eat whole foods, veggies and some fruits. Just need to find which foods don't irritate you. Hope you feel better Linda.

Losing weight, but not in a way I would recommend.

Linda - just read that you were diagnosed with Diverticulitis - not fun but at least that answers questions for you and it is controllable. Feel well everyone!

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

enjoying your conversation. Just a quick note to let you know I was diagnosed with diverticulosis yesterday. Monday I got to having real pain that lasted through the night so Tues AM, dh took me to Urgent care clinic, where I had high white count and fever. I am on fluid diet now but getting hungry and no fever today, thankfully.

Tums work for me or hot herbal tea.
Ladies I have to share, I work in IT with mostly guys. this morning the brainiacs are discussing some problem and they say "It's like a C section, make the decision, get it over with and no pain" This is how the day started! Uh and I also believe that all the guys were dads? I am having that kind of week :(
went to the gym tonite to get my intro training assessment which was confirmed Sunday night but the guy doesn't work there any more! Oh, get on the bike, uh no, see the brace? And then they wanted to wait for the guy who had overcharged and mislead me originally. That kind of week

Weather patterns are so funny, when we are in drought you are having mud slides. Back in the 40's they thought it would be a good idea to salt the hurricanes, stopped them, but put the rest of the country in a drought. 'bout time they learned something.

Linda certainly hope you are feeling better today. Did you try TUMS? They work for me whenever I have digestive difficulties.
This morning I decided to get myself to the gym. My room mate is out of town so not here to encourage me. Well, she is a small person and doesn't really have to go but it helps. Anyhow, I did the treadmill for 1/2 hr and weight training too. Unfortunately the pool is still not available until Thursday. I hate when I can't swim. Exercise releases the endorphins in the brain which makes for a better mood and good overall feeling. And, I do feel much better. Hope everyone is having a great morning/afternoon.

This morning, I am thinking about my ticker that shows weight loss. I reset it. Instead of needing to lose 25 pounds this morning, I only need to lose 4. For the first time, this seems reasonable. It only took me two years to put on the 25 pounds, so I will lose them 5 at a time!

Thank you Linda. I feel sluggish today and lazy. Didn't do a darn thing! But hopefully the pool is up and ready at the gym tomorrow. I will go early and get my workout in. This is the 2nd time they have closed the pool for maintenance. Being active helps with my depression and just gives me an all around good feel. Hope you are feeling better too Linda. Perhaps the exercise helped. Have a nice evening...

You have a great week too, Diane!

Suze, I guess I can live through a weekend with SIL.

I did not feel well this am, but went to water aerobics anyway. It wiped me out! It will be better Wednesday. Losing inches and pounds... although slowly.

Hope everyone has a great week. Mondays don't depress me anymore now that I'm RETIRED! Been over a year for me now. Doesn't seem possible. So much has happened. Still having a difficult time with my mom's passing in April. Nights are extremely difficult. I miss talking with her on the phone. Anyhow, my kitties are good and so am I. My sister/room mate is visiting her family today and tomorrow. She has two grandsons now. Children come along fast and grow as fast too. My eldest granddaughter turned 16 yesterday! I'm getting so OLD. Haha.

Anything worthwhile takes effort..never give up.

Linda, glad on the church family. Sundays just make me blue last few years. and yuck on the SIL. Can't stand mine. And most of his sibs don't speak to him anyway. Went to Michael's this morning and got silly stuff but it was fun. Kids are away today, no Sunday dinner with Dad. So we are free!! I love them and love having them over but it puts time pressure on Sunday and now that DH is straight they love to stay and talk and laugh which is great except I get up so early. The two of us are having stuffed flounder and salad tonight. Working this afternoon to keep up with projects at work

Happy for you Suze with both your DH and the yoga!

Looking forward to the day. I used to not like Sundays and was depressed on Sunday, but not anymore! I love my church and church family! We always go out to eat with a group on Sunday after church. Plus we have a lovely pastor and his family too! It feels like a family there.

Two weeks going to the SIL on the coast for 60th anniversary for dh parents. Not looking forward. SIL has been treating us ... in a condescending manner, let's say. DH last conversation with her was loud...

How wonderful of your DH to offer this. Yoga has helped so many people overcome difficulties, I first learned Iyangar yoga, which was developed to help people with handicaps that would otherwise prevent them from practicing, it is most helpful in insuring body alignment, I have a sister with fibromyaliga who practices faithfully so she can function.

Why are you guys so far away from me? I miss having like minded people to shop with. Linda, I envy the beads! Dh wanted to go to Harbor Freight for tools this afternoon and Pier 1 is next door so we stopped their first. Got stocking stuffers for the holidays and a peacock pen for moi for $1.48!
Went to yoga this morning at the church with my friend who also has issues. We look alright until we move. Multiple issues between the both of us. It's part of a wellness program there. Last time we went we loved it. We asked the instructor where she practices and it was difficult for us and she is too expensive for us on an individual basis. Well, this morning was really hard for me and harder for Cami. Instructor came up to us afterward and said she wants to work with us and help us and will work it out. Cami was crying with frustration and upset. We hate what is happening to us. When I came home and told DH that instructor is trying to work something out, he offered to do contract work for her if she needs it to barter for classes for both of us! I can't believe how much better he is.

I went shopping today too Linda! Went to the mall this morning for my walking and afterwards did a little shopping but didn't buy anything. I am spoiled because since I'm retired I usually go to the mall during the week when it is less crowded. Sad to say it was busy so I didn't really desire standing in line so didn't buy a thing! There's a purple plaid shirt I want to buy which I will prob go back and get it during the week. Spoiled I am. Haha.

Well, I went shopping today! ( I know, I know, after all that talk about crowds! ) There is a bead store going out of business... 40% off. Still high priced, but about what I would pay on eBay or Etsy, minus the shipping. I got some beautiful semi-precious gemstone beads.
Also went to an estate sale, wall to wall people, but I jostled my way in there and was able to find a few low cost prizes.

Wonder how many calories shopping burns? Bound to be some! emoticon Pattie or Suze, I would welcome the company on such an outing. We could have gone to Dillards or Macy's too for clothes.

Suze...Vibrate & Radiate ! What a perfect description !! I've finally found someone I resonate with but sadly we are miles apart. :-(
I bought a cute top at the BX when I got off work yesterday...50% off.
Linda... I hope the X-Ray shows what's been going on with your ankle *fingers crossed*

I used to like shopping more, but now I don't like the jostling you get on the weekends! Someone is always where I want to be.
I got my ankle x-rayed after all. It may not show anything like an MRI, but it was a lot less costly! I will get results next week.
DH wants steak tonight, so we are going out. Yeah!

Pattie, I wish you were closer. I, too am a huntress. Love to shop. Used to get paid to shop which drive my friends wild. Still find it incredibly soothing, even when I am fat. Get into Lord and Taylor and I vibrate and radiate. Even good food shopping does it for me! Exhausted out with nieces till after 10:30!! almost like New Year's eve for me. Really busy week, today is jammed, have gem tree class tonight. Looking forward to Pat's challenge

Sheryl, I don't like crowds either. I grocery shop on Tues or Wed morning, no crowd. Also the clothing stores have less people at that time too.

I am going to wait on ankle. I have been feeling a bit better. I don't think I will do any damage by waiting.

Confession time; I hate shopping! If I go it is so specific, in and out. I think it is because I really don't like crowds. I do love going out to lunch though which is a part of all my shopping experiences. LOL

When I feel better after being ill, I go shopping. I don't always come home with something new but just the "thrill of the hunt" gives me a natural high. Lol

My dh is in a county government job. I guess some brave soul could try filing... they are in a dysfunctional work environment.

I wanted to be there for three more years, but health problems ended my career. DH needs to work 6 more years too, to get the GOOD retirement.

My ankle is feeling better. I did not do the jumping jacks in aqua fit and took it easier on my ankle. It is better.

Sadly politics plays a part in every organization. After being in management for 20+ years IF I ever go back to work it will be mindless with no responsibilities.

It takes A LOT to get fired from a government job.....and there are ppl who have been fired [for very good reason(s) but believe it or not, they got their job back. Filing a grievance doesn't mean someone will lose their job and sadly, our Base has one of the highest Grievance filings.
BRAC looks at this very closely ( among other things ). Robins AFB may close down sometime in the future (BRAC) because of a lot of the ppl who work there. I have just a little over 4 yrs to retire and my husband has 6 years before he retires. I'm pretty confident that we will finish out our time before this may or may not happen.

Suze, Goodness! thank God for Kitty Bardot!

I too like to drink water, but with ice. There are flavored drops now that you can put in it. I don't know anything about them.

Pattie, I have not had an x-ray. The insurance may not charge for that. I have to stay home this afternoon for service person. Our water softener started acting up, no charge for this call, thank goodness.
I have orders to pick up at PC Dr. for x-ray and referral to ortho surgeon. We will see what happens with insurance. Otherwise, I might be waiting until October when new insurance deductible starts over... if I can stand it that long. I have put up with it for over 3 months now.

Pattie, sorry your dh has to work in such a place. If people filed grievance where dh works they would fear retaliation... they all carry guns and tasers. Not saying they would use them on each other, but fear of getting fired.

Bardot is a good girly and will be getting all the treats she wants! Bad streak continues - woke up to find my bank account is locked as someone has tried to hack it. And no 24 hour service - hyperventilating (not literally)
Weather here is terrible. All our personal cells went off yesterday in the office with an emergency warning - bad feeling in metro NY. I take RR in and out so weather related delays already before 5 a.m. my time and they are going on strike so slowing down anyway.
Pattie I did come home to my birchbox but was too tired.
I am in between you guys, not a big water drinker, not a fluid drinker either but I force myself and have to be careful - that commute :)

Oh my gosh Suze, how awful! thank goodness for kitty B.

Pattie, I can't imagine not liking water, I have a glass full with ice at my hand at all times, I do not get into the car without it. Maybe it is an addiction, but a good one. Funny thing is I never used to drink water, it was sweet tea or coffee, the only two things I ever drank. Now I have my coffee in the am and switch to water all day and night long. I use the 24oz Tervis and drink at a minimum 4 a day.

Linda, I pay the earth for MRIs. Negotiation is hard. As far as the foot, youngest had accident playing football. Went to emergency told him he had chip, referred him to ortho that I had been referred to (my third!) and sorted it out - bad sprain and he has NO insurance and it was really, really reasonable
We are facing difficulties here - I am feeling fragile after falls, actually asked cop to help me to train, trains were horribly delayed due to combination of suicide and torrential rains. Took me three hours! Then called DH and kitty Bardot is AWESOME! she kept on screaming and leading DH to kitchen, our gutters were clogged and overflowing and ceiling is leaking. Due to Bardot we have less damage! but have cracked ceiling. And DH put in my bannister so I can get upstairs 'cept I am wiped out by today!

Thanks Linda.... :-)
Since I have a really crappy memory, I hope I'm not going to ask a question you've already answered before. So, here goes......
Have you seen or are seeing a foot & ankle doctor ?
My husband went to one and learned from his MRI that he has a bone chip on top of his foot that keeps rubbing on a nerve. He has no idea how it happened.
His foot and ankle always looks swollen, sometimes red and causes him to limp sometimes.
He is sooo stubborn about getting it fixed because it would cause him to be out of work for awhile and he doesn't want to use a walker or cane when returning to work (until it is completely healed). His work environment is predominately men and sarcastic humor is one of the Stress Relievers there. Because he is a Supervisor, he has to be careful about how he handles himself out there. Ppl file grievance reports on mgmt and each other ALOT on Base and he doesn't want to open the door to that because of what he might say in jest.
Anyway.......if you've had X-rays done in the past and the doc already knows it isn't broken, then to ask for anymore X-rays would just be a waste of your money and just money in their pocket(s).

If you are exercising and eating right, you will eventually lose the weight. There are exceptions, I am an exception. Let's keep trying together, Pattie!

I have been on the phone with dr. The insurance deductible is not even close to being met, so it will cost me $400 to get MRI. X-Ray may be no cost, but most of time shows nothing wrong. Will discuss with dh this evening. So... here I go again. I had this battle over echogram last month and ended up paying $150 cash to a cardiologist office that my cardiologist recommended. Otherwise, that would have been $749. In the meantime, painful ankle still.

I always weigh myself in the morning after I go to the bathroom *giggle*
My point here is that I'm not..losing..weight like ppl have promised.
I hate drinking water but have been sucking this icky liquid down daily.
I'm going to continue drinking water because it's been soooo darn hot here but I'm just really disappointed that I'm not reaping the benefits that other ppl have.

Yeah, probably not the water Patty, weigh before you drink anything and after you go to the bathroom. This way you will know it isn't the water. Are you still dropping inches?

Okay..... I've been drinking more water daily for the past 3 months than I ever have in my lifetime and I've gained 2-3lbs. I am not a happy camper. For YEaRs, ppl have said, " Pattie, you'll lose weight if you drink water every day".....
Really ? Seriously ??

The morning started off a little slow. I wasn't feeling well at first. My husband brought me the newspaper and coffee in bed. So sweet. We got ready for church and met my dad there. I cant believe the 18th will be one year since my mom passed away. Since my mom has passed, my dad eats dinner with us every Sunday and sometimes during the week too. I cooked all day yesterday so I sent home several containers full of food.
Another great weekend.

Suze, hopefully it will not be too much drama.

Sheryl, glad you sold the cars, sorry about the rain. That keeps people away.

DH worked all night last night at an off duty job, but insisted on going to church. He was falling asleep though, so instead of our usual going out to eat with friends, I stopped to bring something home. He is asleep on the couch now. I took a nap too, because I don't sleep well when he is out all night. Plus he is making this money for us! Our niece is having a BIG to do wedding in November, formal. We are staying at a high priced hotel and getting new clothes for the event, so that is why he is working these off duty jobs. It will be in Galveston, Texas.

Yikes, the drama with all that going on around you. I know that type of thing is so draining.

Last day of our yard sale, rained out, but good news is we may have sold the Durango! WooHoo, down to 2 cars like normal people!

Hope everyone is feeling better. No aqua fit for me this weekend. It wipes me out and we needed to do things yesterday. Bruise is huge and think it would be a problem. Sat outside yesterday for a bit and read. Yeah! Today "It's Sunday and I have dinner with my Dad" which means I have to come up with a meal. He did help DH get bannister for me yesterday so I am really not complaining. We understand youngest is getting engaged - took his mother to buy the ring so you can see where this one is heading. And with her so involved, I just see lots of hurt for us in this situation. The girl has an SM that she can't stand. In fact she moved out three years ago and lives in SS's bedroom. It is what it is

Thanks, I keep thinking (hoping) it will go away. It is not bad enough to not be able to walk, but there is pain.

Dh has an off-duty job tonight, probably won't get much sleep.

I sure hope so, was outside until 1pm today with the yard sale, the sun should help some I hope.
I hope they find out what is wrong with your ankle and get a quick fix on it.

Maybe it will have run its course by Monday, Sheryl. Let's hope so!

The doctor did not get the x-ray order in time on Friday and now I am going Monday to get x-rayed for my ankle that has been bothering me for months.

Had a lovely book study this morning with church group.

You too, I am so sorry you are having such a time with falling. Is something able to be done about it?
