Thanks gardens, right from today I'm going to write everything down no excuses. I know checking calories on everything can be a pain but i will do it. Thanks for your help. I've got a larger diary too so i can write down in that it would be quicker.

I still feel like I haven't really begun yet though i'm going through the motions every day and exercising but still having some treats which isn't leading to any significant weight loss. I want to try herbal life but I have to wait for a few weeks now until I can afford it that would certainly give me a boost losing weight. You know when you don't see results and the scales aren't moving lol it makes you doubt yourself but I guess at least i'm not gaining any that's something.

I've heard of Herbal Life, and something similar, OmniLife. I dare say they are good vitamin type supplements.
I treated DD and granddaughter to lunch at my favorite triple-Asian (Chines, Thai, and Vietnamese cuisine) restaurant. Someone finally came and picked up an order of two (ceramic) dogs, so that paid for lunch with money left over.

I'm starting herbal life diet in a few days because my weight loss is very disheartening to say the least I need to try this and see if it works for me.

Did 10 minutes of Simmons today after having walked a while with my granddaughter at a local park (see my spark blog). It's cool out, 50's, but sunny, no strong winds.

Sunday I took a day off from exercise (besides I was sore from Saturday!) And yesterday I was downright lazy. I mean, I set up the computer with the exercise videos, but I just didn't want to. So this morning I though, I reeeeally have to do this. My weight is up, and I just can't let it continue to climb. But my knees do hurt. So I did the seated workout - cardio, core, and resistance.
I also went to Aldi's today for bread, milk, and a few other things. Last night I was so-o-o craving junk food, but thank goodness was too lazy to go to the corner convenience store! Then this morning I breakfasted on the muffins my DD had made - steel-cut oat flour, flax, apples, and walnuts, so they were very healthy and nutritious. So when I passed all the snacks, while I DID pause and consider chips and cookies and such - I PASSED them! It's ALWAYS best to eat before you shop, and I know the more I eat really healthy stuff, the less I crave.

I have been so lazy...but finally today I got off my behind and did a couple of Spark's routines. Time to begin a new streak!

Yesterday I took someone shopping and by the time I was done my knees were screaming.

Yeah, I get occasional fast food too.

Had PT yesterday so I'm going a little easy on myself today. But I do want to do some cardio.

I picked up some greenware from a friend, and was cleaning most of it this morning to fire with my hand-made stuff. I got it mainly to give some projects to the grandkids to paint over break next week.

It's a lot better than it used to be before surgery, believe me!

I figure I'll get all my replacement parts on my work's health plan, then I can retire! emoticon

Sorry to hear you have been in pain it must be difficult walking for you at the moment. My mum did lots of exercising when she first had her knee op and lost 2 stone and is pain free on her knees she can climb stairs now okay instead of hobbling.

Well, I was hoping to keep working up until just before surgery, but about a week after coming back from Christmas break, I had to go on disability because the pain was just too much. The surgeon recommended 12 weeks recovery to make sure the muscles and ligaments are all back in place and strong so I don't dislocate the new joint. If that happens, I understand the pain is excruciating, and the doc has to try to wrestle it back in place, and if he can't, it's back in to surgery, and then a brace is put on - longer time out. SOOOO I'm taking the full 12 weeks. I'll go back May 4. School ends around June 25. Then we have two months of summer vacation. Those 8 weeks should be enough for the knee, although I understand it's a more difficult surgery to recover from. May have something to do with the nature of the joint itself.

Anyway, my right hip feels great. When it hurts, it's muscular from the strengthening exercises, especially after a PT session!

Hi Shel, that is great to have a the surgery all booked for June I hope you recover quickly my mum had some type of knee surgery last year not sure what type though.
Your looking great!

I am determined to shift some weight for summer, a dress size would be ideal.

How is work going at the school?

Yesterday's workout was a bit more intense, as it should be to build up strength. I still ache a bit. But today my surgeon was very pleased and impressed with how well I was doing after 6 weeks, walking without a cane or walker. AND - we scheduled my left knee replacement for June! emoticon

Was still achey from Tuesday's workout, so didn't do any exercise. But today I return for more punishment. Meanwhile, after my workout Tues, I rewarded myself with a fresh haircut, and colored it yesterday.

I'm expecting an old friend - we spent some years in the same neighborhood in our childhood - to come by this afternoon to get his special order doggie (he had to have her put down recently emoticon ) I haven't done any exercise yet today, although I did a good amount during the week. Still, I don't want to get too lazy, especially since I had to cancel Thursday's PT due to not being able to pull out of the driveway's icy grip!

Yesterday the PT gave me some new exercises to do. I did them just before bed, and then this morning while waiting for the bathroom to be freed up! I go to the therapist again tomorrow. It's so good to be able to drive again!

I managed 20 with Simmons yesterday, tho admittedly some of that was cool down stretches. Still, when I got on the scale, it was down again. Nothing like cardio to help burn those calories!

I'm waiting for my shipment of yarns from Jo Ann Fabrics. I've been crocheting afghans for each of the grandkids, including the "steps" - they were so excited when I told them I'd make them each one of their own.

Had 3 week post-op check up today. X rays showed the new joint is doing well, and my hips are pretty even. Home PT has ended, so I got a prescription for outpatient - made my first appt. for next Tues. After I digest a bit I'm going to see about doing another 15 or 20 with my buddy Richard!

Today for the first time in AGES I did part of a Richard Simmons workout - just 15 minutes, cuz I don't want to overdo it. I also took the stairs the "normal" way, each foot going to the next step up, then down. Yay! Progress! emoticon

Going out today - first time since going home from hospital on the 5th. It's super cold out, and I also have to stop at the PO to mail some packages, and at the grocery store to get PRODUCE! (I want SALAD!) My friend is taking me, so I offered to buy her an early dinner after the running around. Shel

I have been sleeping better, and moving better, and keeping systems regular...the problem is, I still can't do a lot of good cardio, and so my weight has been creeping up. I know this is a temporary setback, but still, it will take a long time to recover and lose that weight again.

Apparently when reading the directions for my pain med, seeing "3" I just figured 3 x day. When the PT came yesterday and was going over things, she questioned that, and lo and behold, it was one EVERY 3 HOURS as needed for pain! OH! Hey, now, that makes it a lot easier to sleep! emoticon emoticon

It is hardest to get comfortable in bed. I did not used to sleep on my back because it was uncomfortable ON my back - but now, it is better than on my side, trying to keep my legs from crossing. Challenging, but I've gotten a little better sleep, although I still have to get up frequently to use the potty. I have to make sure that I take the pain med to keep things under control. But it definitely is doing better, little by little.

Went to breakfast with one of my coworkers and 2 FORMER coworkers (we work in different schools now.) It was fun to catch up. One of the teachers is going to be having knee replacement and has been out from work since October. I had a BIG breakfast. So I have to go easy the rest of the day! Especially because I'm not getting much activity due to pain. Shel

Today I have to leave off taking my pain med, reason being, they want it out of my system so I don't bleed too much during surgery. Reasonable! I'm just apprehensive of how I'm going to be feeling this week. Glad surgery is just around the corner!

Surgery is scheduled for Feb. 3. As I was helping my grandson with his homework, I exhorted him to cover his cough - "Nina" (me) doesn't want to get sick and have to postpone the surgery!

Had my last pre-op appt. with my doctor - they did an EKG, and everything looks good. I got these special wipes when I went to the hospital for the pre-op workup, which I have to use 2nights before and then the night before surgery, to super-cleanse to avoid infection at the incision site. The instructions include putting on FRESHLY LAUNDERED nightwear each night, and sleeping in FRESHLY LAUNDERED sheets each of those 2 nights. I told my daughter, "You are going to be doing a LOT of laundry!" emoticon

MAMI, sounds like you are on the right track, getting the muscles ready are very important and evenually you will see the pounds fad away.

When are you schedued for your operation ? I go next Wednesday the 28th. I have had all my pre-op testing and ready to go. Found I have hypoglycemia, but can control by diet.

Have to pack tomorrow, i bag for the hospital which will be 3 days and then another for rehab which will be 2-3 weeks. Planning on less time than that.

While I haven't been doing the seated workouts EVERY day, I have been doing them more FREQUENTLY. My weight is still stuck on "high" but my surgeon commented that my leg strength was pretty good given the condition of my hip. So, I'm encouraged.

True, one would think that they would push for healthy foods.
Last night DD made turkey for dinner. I had some for breakfast and lunch today! The carcass is being cooked for stock, and it smells so good, while also humidifying this dry air!

Had a good day today, enjoyed a bran muffin I had made and put in the freezer a while ago.

must make some more as I am having my knee operated on, then going to rehab. The diet there doesn't look very healthy. I was surprized at this. The majority of the clients were up in age and should be eating healthy, but......

That's right. Part of the battle is establishing healthy habits. Focus on that. Eventually the weight loss will kick in.

True on both accounts - counting calories, and getting exercise. Right now I'm having difficulty with the exercise due to increased pain and lack of mobility. I'm trying to watch the calories, and do what I can, but during the holidays of course I gained weight, and it's all I can do for now just to maintain. I suggest focus on maintaining - if you're not GAINING, that's good! Don't give up!

Hi Shel, I'm so demoralised lately about my weight. I can't seem to budge the scales at all? I have walked and walked today AND done housework, i'll have to keep it up and then weigh myself on Friday. I watched a tv show tonight about weight loss journey's it was good and the doctor said to the volunteers that counting calories is initially the most important part and then exercise is important to maintain your ideal weight. I think exercise is important to tone up as you lose weight too, am I right? Well hope you are having a good week. I am about to go shopping for groceries and will have to make some good choices.

Opting not to attend church but rather listened to some sermons from my previous church online - besides my personal Bible time. I've done my re-surg exercises, and I also want to do the seated stuff. Well, I don't exactly WANT to, I just know it would be OOD for me to do them! emoticon
