Now that I have medicare and health insurance, I am thinking about asking my primary physician to prescribe some PT for my back and neck. I don't know if it would help but these injections are only lasting a couple of months.

Boy, was I ticked to have gained 9 pounds the day after surgery! I asked my doctor if that was normal and yes, it was. I've gained from medicine changes, certain types of medicines, other surgeries and although I expect it now, it always upsets me. BUT now I have a plan and now I have half of that weight off a week later. How?

Drink your water and flush out all of the yuck, keep yourself fuller, and compensate for the fact that hunger and thirst both register in the same part of the brain and can get you confused with their signals.

Keep low calorie foods handy for noshing, because sometimes certain medicine changes or medicines make you hungry. Save higher calorie foods for meals. Almonds or walnuts, although higher cal, do make a satisfying snack at 1 ounce 20 minutes before a meal and they help you eat less.

Try to track and TIME your eating. It isn't all about what you eat, it's when you eat also. eating every 3-4 hours in a snack like fashion with a little carbs, some protein, and some healthy fat can keep you from experiencing the ravaging hunger that some medical things can bring on. Keep in mind that dairy, breads, beans, veggies, and fruits all have carbs in them.

Bring on the fiber and protein to stay full.

Reset your Spark Weight Goal often as you lose of gain because your calorie needs change. Go to your start page, then see where it says TRACK WEIGHT... there is a little tab in light letters underneath it that says EDIT GOALS. Click that. That's where you can update your new weight goal, decide how much you want to lose per week or by what date you want to lose a particular amount of weight. Then let the tracker keep you moving in the right direction by tracking your food daily.

If these tips look like the same tips you have to take to lose every other kind of weight, yes, you caught on. The trick with all weight loss is diligence and persistence. You have to really really want it, even in the middle of the night when the fridge calls. So plan for those snacks too- ahead of time.

I hope INDYGIRL's recovery goes smoothly and everything ends up well. Her blogs have always been an inspiration to me to keep going when I get discouraged.

I am still here, just stepped down as team leader of Beauty Over 50, which I started in 2009. It was hard, but I need to devote more time to my business. I will be spending less time on Spark, maybe once a week instead of daily.

I attempted to call Beth but there was no answer. I am assuming she is resting and that's a good thing. I am keeping notes on comments made so that when we do talk, I can pass on your comments and best wishes.....

Linda ..... I hate to see you go, but PLEASE visit when you get the chance! emoticon

COOPERKARENJ72 ..... YAY! That sounds fantastic! emoticon

SERIOUSLIM ..... I am the same way! How about I join in the next coming week and see how this works out?

Beth: wishing you a speedy recovery.
Debbie, thank you for all you do
Cooper, i feel your energy,

My weight has been stationary for months. I stopped and analysed the reason and the pattern: week days are healthy, and then, starting thursday night, i feel i deserve a treat and keep "treating" myself .
So my plan is to be very aware and to plan good food and entertainment for the week-end. This way, since my progress will not be cancelled by my week-end splurges, i shoud finally see progress.

I do walk, stretch, sleep enough, so some of the bases are covered.
Care to join me for a "week-end project?"

These past two weeks I have been working out but this week every day since Monday..goal is thru Saturday rest Sunday with some housework or walking in mall or grocery stores. I am sore today which is progress! I haven't been able to do core or strength training for so long but it feels good. emoticon

Hello, I have not visited in a while. I am letting you know that I am stepping down as leader of the team I started and will only be on Spark occasionally.
I have started a business and Spark takes up too much of my time. I need to devote the time right now to the business.
Much love,
Linda

Hi Everyone,
This is INDYGIRL (Beth), speaking to you through my friend and co-Leader NEWSPARKDEBBIE (Debbie)....

I recently went through my shoulder surgery and am now recovering from home. I have been placed on a NO TYPEING profile until further notice and will be communicating through Debbie to you and for you.

The doctor successfully removed the tumor and shaved off the bone from the shoulder. He (the surgeon) had to remove more bone than expected and found that I have a torn rotator cup and the pain is very intense. I will be returning to the surgeons office for my post-op follow up appointment on the 12th and hopefully will be released to type at that time. I also hope to convince the surgeon to release me from wearing the arm sling he has placed me in at this time. I realize the importance of immobilizing the shoulder from any and all movement but the weight of the sling is bearing down on the bad disc's in my neck which is causing me a lot of pain in that area as well.

Please know that I am missing you ALL very much and that I wish you all good luck on your own journeys during my absence.... I will be back as soon as the doctors give me the ok......

I am inspired by the fact that I have actually been doing this with some good success for the last 9 months. I figure if I can do it for 9 months, I can keep it up for life! I always pray for strength mind you and God figures into this greatly!

We had a downpour this morning. Still looks stormy out. I walked on the treadmill and did heavy cleaning.

Have a great day!

I live in Texas and Sunday it hit 90. I didn't like it because I had to walk up and down hills in the sun to and from a parking garage. The walking was not the problem, the heat was! We were at the finish line for my nephew who biked 65 miles into Austin Sunday. Yesterday high was 75, today 80. I like those numbers!

No I agree with you Cheri! I don't do well at all in extreme temperatures either! It's hard to focus on the exercising when your teeth are chattering or you can't keep the sweat out of your eyes!

Thank you. I CAN is my new thing. I say it every day and notice even the seemingly innocent times I say I can't... such as, I can't believe... you fill it in, we all say it. I am eliminating that too.

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. God was listening. Things seem to be picking up. My surgery was set back to May 1st, but I don't mind because at least I'm getting it! Chuck's cancer scare- benign. Finances from two surgeries, still scary, but having faith God will help sort it all out for us. Two bunnies of ours have passed away at very old ages of 10 and 11 in the past few months and we miss the, but we still have one very sweet bunny who is cute as a button

I just got back from a chamber of commerce luncheon. Nice time. Met some new people too!

Sparkling, eating healthy! I ignored the dessert at the luncheon and half my plate was salad.

Surgery is probably going to be the outcome. I have been having gout issues, but since the uric acid is down now, I probably have some damage and need surgery. Plus plantar fasciitis and a spur in my foot too. Thanks for thinking of me.

I plan to have a healthy week. Might make a call to podiatrist... I have so many doctor visits, I just get tired of going to doctors offices! When my foot is bad enough, I will go. Right now I can walk with some pain, but I push through and walk.

My Blog for the day.......


So there is this young woman at the park every time I drive through. Our older home that now belongs to our daughter, butts up to the park and I drive through the park several times a week.

ANYWAY.......

When I drive through she is always on the swing sets during the times that all the kids are usually in school. She is swinging at a very quick pace, pulling hard when she goes forward and wearing her ear phones while she swings at full speed.

So I got to thinking about this......
That would be a total body workout wouldn't it?! Arms, legs, stomach, back, ribs.......


I wander how funny I would look at 329 pounds..... just a swinging....?!

Your surgery will be over the x I am in Indy. . I will still call and leave you a message never the less. You will be on Church's Prayer list. Take care of yourself, my friend!

Who will be taking care of you both; each other???

Hugs,
Christine and Janet
