Good for you taking the dog for a walk. Mine will have to wait until it is a little warmer outside. I'm a wimp in the cold.

I'm on vacation until January 7th and ready to make good choices all vacation long. My phone is going everywhere with me so I can log all food that I eat. This may be a lofty goal but I'm sure going to give it a try.

So far so good. Did 10 minutes of yoga and the dog is chomping at the bit for her morning walk.

Yikes! Somehow, I got unsubscribed from this thread and didn't realize it!

TMGSGIRL ... Sure hope that fracture heals quickly and you're able to keep yourself confined in the meantime. I'm so sorry! emoticon

DAISEYMAE101 ... Did you budge that pound? Did others follow? Sometimes they are stubborn. I've learned to be more stubborn! emoticon

I'm now on winter vacation! emoticon Started yesterday even though my office did call to clarify one thing. But they promised not to call again. I don't think they will. They are a great group to work with!

Have a wonderful day!!! Take good care of yourself making GREAT choices!

TMGSGIRL, try having an apple for a snack inbetween meals, and yes, make sure you have enough to drink!

I did well today, my walk was rained out so I did a couple of cardio exercises and my strength routine.
Ate pretty well, too, tad bit high on the fat intake, but still an okay number.

TMGSGIRL - Try herbal tea. A nice, hot cup of tea seems to fill me up (don't know if it is all in my head). I did great all day until we went to my parents' house for dinner. She pulled out the Sour Cream and Onion potato chips and I went gangbuster on it. It didn't matter that they expired in July - lol.

So far...did breakfast and lunch...reasonable...and I worked steady cleaning stalls and the big pen for the past hour. My way of getting my to do list done is to work til I get tired...take a break and hit it again. I tuned the radio to Christmas carols and worked with a couple of interruptions...I had to chase Charlie, the Shetland out of the pen...he keeps playing in the 100 gallon water trough....he bangs at it with his knee and finally will lift a front leg high enough to get it in the trough and splash....no container over 5 gallons is safe

So far today i have had a good day, but am struggling to stay on track with the calorie intake and I did walk 5 miles today with one of my videos, Hubby is out hunting so I will be able to get some things done around here today..

So if I don't show up for a couple days its because he banned me from the pc.

Any way have a great day everyone.

Thank you , RamonaAnne, It hurts but not so terribly that I can't do any thing, the pain killers they gave me are really to strong for me ,, Norco 10/325 , they only give Norco 5/325 for patients with hip replacements , so when I take a pain killer it knocks me out , so i have gone back to just taking my Arthritis strength tylenol. and using ice or a heating pad for comfort. It is just driving me nuts not being able to do any thng and of course my hubby is like an evil eye ,,"oh dont you do that., let me do it " :"I'm telling your doc," ,I know he means well but geeshe I can't sit in a chair and do nothing for 2 weeks.

I had a good day and tommorro will be the Christmas Party at work. It should be a good day and way too many snacks around...I think I will load a bag with healthy snacks before I leave in the morning.
So sorry about the exercise video injury...argh..
We had a pretty, mild winter day here in NE Tx and I got a lot done.

Yikes! I just looked up "comminuted fracture". That doesn't sound good at all. I had enough trouble with the simple fracture in my arm in January. Didn't think it would ever stop hurting, and the swelling took forever to go away.

I'll be praying for you TMGSGIRL.

You can do it, DAISEYMAE101! Just keep pushing!

I soooo didn't want to get up and go to the gym today. But I did. I'm exhausted now, but I did it and I feel much better about myself than I did yesterday when I convinced myself I would be happier if I just did a 10 minute video.

Gah! Still up one pound for 7 days. Incredibly frustrated -- how is it possible to be so diet conscious and track everything I put in my mouth and still go up a pound that won't go away? I refuse to give up! I will continue to push forward. Maybe I'll just stop weighing myself. =)

Well..... KENWANNE2013

I went to the doctor on monday and found out the head of my radius elbow end is fractured like a spiderweb called a comminuted fracture. So I am not suppose to use my arm at all except for 3 times a day of doing stretching exercises the orthopedic doctor assigned me to do. At least they didn't cast it. but I will know more on my visit to the ortho on next monday , in the mean time I am doing the walking videos without doing the arm exercises or movements in it. if nothing else I will just walk on my tread mill. qne no im not suppost to be typing either but i wanted everyone to know why i have been here since my last post.

hope you're OK TMGSGIRL - no lasting damage. Good on you for picking yourself up and keeping going.

I've had a really good day today. Dreaded getting on the scales, I thought I might have put on, and was only half hopeful that maybe I'd plateau'd so was really pleased to have lost a 1lb.

I went out with my partner today. Often when we go out we stop for tea and cakes somewhere. I turned down a rather nice piece of parkin, covered in choc sauce, and ice cream, saving myself at least 14 weightwatcher points.


Hope everyone here has a brilliant day tomorrow.

Success is inevitable

I did manage to go back and do the whole video tho and I am on track with my calorie intake today so far and not to long before I go to bed .

Doing good. Went to Monday night Bible study. We always have a meal there. Someone different cooks each week. Nobody noticed all I ate was half of a backed sweet potato. There was a Mexican Casserole, black beans and salad. I'm not crazy about any of those, so it wasn't hard...

We always bring dessert. It's our specialty. My daughter made a French King Cake. It has a puff pastry crust filled with marzipan. Didn't even tempt me.

Well, today was the first day back to full activity after the laproscopy. And it was a doozy. At least exercise wise. As I was getting my run in, I swear I could literally feel exactly where the probe and tools had been inside my body and the path they took. =/ But I stuck with it and finished my run. And I feel better for doing so.

Thanks RamonaAnne! I am taking it super easy today. It was my first day back at work and I ended up leaving early because I felt a little off. I have such a hard time taking things easy and asking for help. I am not sure I know the term slow down. LOL

Well, I survived my laproscopy. My tummy area hurts a bit and the gas is killer. I can't pee or fart without hurting. LOL I know, that's TMI but it's the truth. The doctor said that everything looked good, no structural damage anywhere and he could see gas going through my tubes and that was good because that meant they're open. They pushed some dye through and it went well. He found two small cysts but said they aren't anything to worry about. So it was a good appointment. He checked my hernia surgery and said that was fine too. Now just on to battling PCOS. On my appointment next Friday for follow up, we will be discussing where to go from here. He has all my blood work and laproscopy results and hopefully we can find something to help me. I have been sticking with my work out plans so far and I've lost three pounds as of this past Sunday. I hope to be back up and running at full speed by Monday and on to more weight loss and kicking PCOS in the butt!

This is my first post on this team page, my name is Rebecca and I have been at this for 2 weeks.

I love that the majority of these posts are positive. keep up the good attitudes!
My day was good, work and gym, normal stuff but i had lunch with co workers and an hour plus phone call with my best friend so I think i might have burned 2000 calories just laughing.
Tomorrow looks like another winner but a rep from a company i do business with is taking me to lunch at a soul food restaurant which sounds like trouble to me! What is healthy at a soul food spot?!?

Today has been really great! I got up and went for a 2 mile walk, then went to work and I have done a great job with not snacking! Days like today make me feel very satisfied with myself.

Good day today! I was back to work for the first time in a week. I got the worst note from a substitute teacher that I have ever gotten in my LIFE!!!!!!! but my kids tried hard to make up for it today. I was proud of the way they attempted to redeem themselves. They could tell I was really angry. I stuck to my plan for the day for the most part...but I think I'm going to have to focus more on the daily schedule and leave Jillian Michaels out for now. I did my team's challenge and a Wii Fit challenge...so I am exercising...but I am not ready to the 20 minute commitment...not until I get used to being on my feet for almost 11 hours straight...sigh

I'm having a good day so far. I am still losing weight and trying my best to stick to healthier food choices. I got up early and got in an hour of exercise. I am looking forward to a great week and wish the same for all of you!

Well, my day is going great so far. I started it off with a work out and feel so much better for doing so! I have stuck to my training program for yet another week and I'm proud that I have done so. Tomorrow will be a difficult week because I have my laproscopy scheduled but I will do my best to keep going. I may have to run alternate days because of it. I'm still on my workout high from this morning and I think I'm driving my husband crazy because of it. LOL

I'm so happy with how today has gone for me. I've just had so much fun with my baby boy! He was absolutely precious all day. We went grocery shopping and played a ton all over the living room floor! I know I burned a lot of calories with my little man. It's hard to keep up with a very active 17 month old boy!

I started my day with a strong pain in the right side of my chest and between shoulder blades. I made the decision, after calling my mother, to go to the emergency room. I wasn't sure if I should be there, but the nurse reassured me it was better to have things checked out just to be sure. I was given a bed in the emergency room and was given a gown to change into. The nurse returned and started putting these sticky round circles on my chest and abdomen. The stickers connected to wires on a heart monitor where she could check my blood pressure and heart beat etc. Then she put these Q-Trace stickers on me and connected me to an EKG to monitor my heart's electricity. She was very supportive and put me at ease, although it was embarassing as I was exposed and very self conscious about all the weight I was carrying and being in this circumstance. Not long after the doctor arrived and gave me a physical exam and asked me lots of questions. He had ordered some blood work, and not long after a lab technician came to draw my blood for a series of tests he wanted to run. I was in the hospital all for approximately 3.5 hours and I am happy to report that I was not having a heart attack nor do I have any cardiac problems. My blood pressure is actually down to 128 over 80, which is dramatically lower than my previous reading of 140 over 101. I think it's the aqua aerobics and slowly making better food choices for myself. The doctor thinks I may have hurt a muscle while doing aerobics and recommended I take an Advil and monitor it.

I'm still having the pain and it's now more present in my back shoulder, so I am thinking it was the result of a new interval we did in water aerobics last night. Talk about an experience though. It wasn't my rock bottom, as I've already hit that, but it was definitely a reminded as to why I need to make changes in my lifestyle. I'm only 34 years old and I have so much in life that I want to do and see.

I've had a good day. Despite going off plan a bit yesterday, I didnt use it as an excuse for just giving up. I also managed to do 30 mins on wii, so I've done 40 mins this week (40 mins more than I've done in the last year...or so). emoticon emoticon

Today was SUPER!
I finally got my new shoes. I know, for most people that's nothing to be so excited about, but these shoes are special. And by that I mean really special.
When you've got Fat Pad Atrophy, every step you take hurts. It's like walking on your bare bones. So I haven't been able to walk more than a few steps at a time over the last two years.
Then I read a blog post by a guy who had FPA, too, and he had actually been able to find shoes that allowed him to walk again. I could hardly believe it, but... the only dealer of these special shoes (Kyboots) in my country, happened to live in the same town where I live. So we went there to see this dealer, I tried on a pair of these wonder shoes, and sure enough, I could walk without being in terrible pain, so I ordered one pair of shoes.
Then the waiting started. And I had to wait for quite a but longer than we'd expected, but yesterday we had a phone call from the dealer. The shoes had finally arrived!
I got my new shoes this afternoon, and was able to walk all the way from the parking lot to our house. That's about 50 metres! And I hardly felt any pain at all!
I'm so happy!
