Hi Ladies,

Hope you have a wonderful safe trip Joan, and prayers to Ruthann it must be a worry for her every time she goes to the Drs there. Hope she gets great results and can enjoy her shopping trip, have fun, hope your pain goes away Joan.
Yvonne hope you have a lovely weekend.
Love Rosie

Yvonne, I would say your right with what caused the weight gain, and you've got a whole week to get that plus maybe another half pound off. Keep up the good work.

Rosie, hope your well, thanks so much for the prayers.

I won't be on here Sunday or Monday. It's time for Ruthann to travel to Louisville for her Oncologist appointment, so we are leaving tomorrow, this way we can visit with friends, and if Ruthann wants to shop shop she can do that as well. I know I'm not going to be tramping around to any stores. Prayers that my sister gets a good report and prayers for a safe trip are very welcomed.

Love,
Joan

Weigh in was up 1/2 lb emoticon
but I contribute that to Eating Easter brunch and soup for dinner. emoticon
So may Monday I will be down that Half, AND another 1/2 emoticon

Did my Zumba gold class, going to the Spring Fair this afternoon.
tomorrow going to try a different class, maybe too much for me, but I need to try it.

Think we should eat lunch Before we head out to the fair, nothing healthy there.
Glad you got your appt. set up.
my DD was feeling down yesterday, I told her she needed to get out and get some Fresh Air.... it worked. She couldn't believe how much better she felt.
So sometimes we need to change things up :)
You can come do my windows :)


have a Great day.

Good morning Ladies,
happy to report that I finally have an appointment with the Neurosurgeon, and its not as early as I would have hoped for, but I was told if they have a cancellation they would call me, but I bet they tell everyone that. My appoints is May 8th, still three weeks away, but at least I have an appointment.

Have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie, and Yvonne.
I got a message from Jen asking me to tell you both hello from her. She seems to be doing fine.

Yesterday I was so tired of feeling bad not only mentally but physically, so I got me a bucket of water and cleaning solution and cleaned my windows. Of course when Ruthann came by to exercise she ranted and raved at me, but I didn't care. I was not hurting any worse when I got done than I was before I started and mentally I just felt so much better. Sometimes we just have to do the things we want to do. As I told Ruthann, ''yes I hurt, but now I have nice clean windows to view the outside world." emoticon

Have a great day ladies.

Love,
Joan

Hi Ladies,
I'm the same about weighing in I never eat before hand, but I weigh at home so it's easy, lol.

My daughter said she will go and see what she can get for me at a WWs meetings, but it's school holidays in Australia at the moment so she will go when they finish.

Joan praying you get an appointment soon. Yvonne all the best at your meeting.

Have a great Tuesday,
Love Rosie.

I'm with you Yvonne, I never eat either before weighing in, and I not only have a 30 minute drive we don't weigh in until 9 a.m. and we're not allowed to bring food in. When I went to WW in Louisville I would never eat before weigh in but we weighed in at 7:30 and could bring our breakfast with us. Hope you had a good weigh in.

Rosie, have you found anything else out about the WW plan? Wish you lived closer to me, I have an extra calculator and book I would just give you.

Still have heard nothing from the Neurosurgeon.

Have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Joan, yes I had a lovely day, breakfast with DH and MIL
then I want to DDs house to visit with GKs and take them a card.

Today is WW so trying to not think about food...............I never eat before I go there.
I seem to become obsessed with the thought of food when I am trying not to eat.

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning Ladies,
Thanks Rosie for the prayer, and please pray that the doctor's office calls today so I can get an appointment with the neurosurgeon and hopefully this week.

Yvonne, hope you had a nice Easter.

I went to my sister's and I did not take any pain medication so by the time I got home I could hardly think straight due to the pain. Good news is I did sleep well last night.

Hope you both have a good day and a good week.

Love,
Joan

Happy Easter Ladies,

"Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal and new life."

I like the above quote, it gives us hope, and in today's world we need all the hope we can get. Hope you both have a wonderful day. My plan is to go to my sister's today, I don't really feel like going but I know once I get there I'll have a great time.

Love,
Joan

You have a wonderful day as well.

Good Saturday morning Ladies,

My sister went to our Chiropractor yesterday, and Shane, he's the Chiropractor asked Ruthann how I was doing, so Ruthann told him everything that has been going on, and then she told him, ''the pain medication seems to be helping her." Shane then said, ''that is a good sign then, that the shots would be beneficial." So that made me feel better. I also think some of the swelling has gone down in my thigh, so that is a good thing as well.

That is it from my world. Hope you both have a wonderful day, and a very blessed Easter weekend.

Love,
Joan

Yes she can get it for you.
I like the calculator and we use to take it with us everywhere we shopped.
Now my Cell has the app, thur the online so it does the same thing.
My hubby uses the calculator all the time, cause he doesn't have a cell with the app.

Joan
I don't know, a gal at the Y deals with bulging disc. I think she over does it at times, but she knows her body. sometimes she gets bed ridden for a few days :(

I don't know if Ice and Heat help, or acupuncture?
stretches have to help, cause it releases blood flow. Ask the Dr. for the best moves.
so you don't hurt yourself.
praying for you to be pain free.

Off to help a friend.

Have a wonderful Friday.

Hi Ladies,
I do hope they can do something for you Joan, my prayers are with you. The memorial must of been nice, how lovely they were able to go.

Yvonne thanks again for all the information about Smart Points. Could you buy the smart points book at WWs, I was thinking of getting my daughter to go to a meeting and getting a book and sending it to me.

Have a lovely Friday and Joan, I do pray you have a pain free one.
Love Rosie

Yvonne, I've had a handicapped parking sticker for years. My husband was handicapped, and after he passed our doctor told me, ''you may as well keep it."
I'm happy to hear that there is a possibility that I could get shots for this. Do you know what they do for a bulging disc?

Rosie, I meant to tell you my sister Ruthann went to the Easter Memorial service with her Mother-in-law on Tuesday evening, Ruthann said the place was packed.

Have a great Good Friday, and feel blessed.

Love,
Joan

I think having the calculator for the points would be very helpful.
If online is tough I would find out from the company that IF you have internet connection problems you may not be able to use the WW site.??
Worth a try :)

Joan, bummer, my husbands grandma had that, but she was in her 80s and lived with it until she was 94.
I think she had the shots?? Not sure, I know my mother in law did the shots. Dan has done the shots.
bulging disc, ouch. You be careful.
You may qualify for a handicap parking pass. Ask the Dr. for one.
Its paper work, but so worth it.
Sorry for everything your going through.
Saying prayers to get relief from the pain.

Good morning Yvonne & Rosie,
Ended up at Urgent care yesterday afternoon. My thigh was and still is all swollen, so my sister insisted that I go to Urgent care which she had to take me. So I saw a nurse practitioner told her what was going on and that I had an MRI done this past Monday. She looked it up and the MRI shows I now have two bulging disc and Spinal Stenosis , so next move is to get in to see a Neurosurgeon , I am hoping they call me today and I can get a quick appointment. The Spinal Stenosis is the narrowing of my spinal cord, so not sure what can be done about any of this. I'll just have to wait and see. This time I was given pain meds, which I did not want to take them, but the nurse practitioner said, ''I'm not going to give you many of them, but you need something to take the edge off the pain." So I took one yesterday evening around 5:15 and it did dull the pain. I'll be using these very sparingly.

That is it from here. Hope you both have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Ladies,
Thank you for all your information about smart points I might go on line and read up about it. I am a bit worried if I join I will have trouble getting on there site but I will read up about it.

Joan hope your MRI can give you results why your in so much pain.

Hope you both have a lovey Thursday.

Good morning Ladies,
Yvonne, I have not had any shots in my back and from what I've been hearing from other people that may well be what I need. I'm hoping to hear the results from the MRI today. I have an appointment to get my hair cut today, and do I ever need it, I'm just a bit worried about the distance I will have to walk to get to her shop.

Rosie, with your connection problems that you tend to have from time to time, I'm not sure if online would work for you. But, I think its something to think about. What I like about the Smart Points is you do now calculate the sugar grams into the points tracker now. However, WW still pushes their bars and such, which I've never thought was a good idea.

Have a great day Ladies,
Love,
Joan

If you used a calculator for Power Points or what ever it was called a couple years ago, they now count
Calories
Sat. Fat
Sugar
Protein.
Where bananas use to be counted as points, now its not :)

I think you can still use Online WW??
I love the new apps for the phone too.
so much easier.

Joan
Bummer, on being in so much discomfort after your test :(
so sorry.
Have they ever given you a shot for the pain in the spine, or Near the spine??
Dans is in the disc where the nerves come through a narrow hole.
and it squeezes the never to cause his sciatic to flare up.
Some stretches work.
He went to a Chiropractor for over 6 months too, (which helped too)

Had a busy day
Zumba
Yard work
then watched a baseball game with my DD at her dds school team
it was a fun day.

Heading t bed shortly
Aerobics tomorrow.

Hi Ladies,
So sorry you are still in so much pain Joan, I hope the MRI finds out why. Big hugs to you Joan.

Yvonne that's a great weight loss so happy the smart points are working for you, I don't know about smart points, I did get to goal doing pro points but I ended up putting the weight back on because I stopped doing it, maybe I should look into smart points they don't have WWs meeting here.

Hope you both have a lovely Tusday.

Good morning Ladies,
l had the MRI yesterday and had to lay on this really hard table for 45 minutes, I could hardly walk after it was over and done with. I was so glad I brought my walking cane alone with me, because I sure needed it after all that was over with. Lots more pain this morning than I normally have, and I know its the aftermath of the MRI. I won't know anything for a couple of days, and I so hope there is something that can be done.

Yvonne, love your graph, and I agree Smart Point is in my opinion the best plan WW's has had in quite sometime. Keep up the great work.

Rosie, I do not envy you where the heat in concerned, this morning its already in the 60's here, which is not bad, and we are expecting rain.

Have a great day ladies.

Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie, and Yvonne,

Rosie, I have not heard of the movie ''Aftermath," I'll have to look into that.

Yvonne, sounds like you had a lot of catching up to do yesterday. That is what I do on Sunday afternoon's make phone call and catch up with my out of town friends.

What a beautiful day yesterday was here, one of the prettiest Passover day's we've had, most year's it raining.

Today I have my MRI, and I have to admit I've been like a kid waiting for Christmas, I just hope and pray this will tell us something.

Have a great week ladies.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie, and Yvonne.

Rosie, I love the quote you posted, and its so very true.

Yvonne, beautiful flower picture as well. My suggestion on the water retention, is water, water, and more water, but I know you already know this.

Yesterday, my lawn guy came by and put fresh mulch down for me, and everything looks so great now. Fresh and clean. I had enough energy yesterday that I dust mopped my hardwood floors, vacuumed all the rugs, mopped the kitchen, bathroom and the entry way into the den. It took me a while to get this done, but the good news is I got it done, and it didn't cause me any extra pain. Of course when my sister's found out what I was doing they both yelled at me, and of course I told them, ''I have to do something I can't just sit all the time." Here's the kicker, they would do the same thing. emoticon

Yvonne, hope the weather is nice for the soccer game today, and Rosie hope you have a wonderful Sunday and a great week ahead.

Love,
Joan

Hi all
Wish I had some good suggestions for releaving your pain :(
Rosie, how was your trip????

We went North to a city about 1 1/2 hr away, we had a beef rib that was so large two of us could have eaten it.
awesome baked beans and coleslaw.
Its a restaurant that a Co-workers husband opened.

Visited with my friends that live that direction and came home full and tired.
Tomorrow is a soccer game, hope the weather holds out.

I know I have a lot of sodium to flush before Monday weigh in................
have to really think about it tomorrow and eat sensible :)

It was sunny partly today, so made me happy.

Have a great day Sunday.

Hope you both have a great weekend. Yvonne, hope your friends are doing better with their sickness.

Rosie, hope your road trip was fun.

Love,
Joan

Rosie, your probably already on your way to Oman, but I wish for you a safe, fun trip. emoticon

Yvonne, I can't get up and down in the tub anymore, so a Epsom salt bath won't work for me. I do stretches every morning and then several times through out the day. My sister wants to think I might have a pinched nerve. Me, I have no clue, all I know is it hurts, and walking is very painful.

Later Ladies.
Love,
Joan

Joan, I would be upset too................
have you tried an Epsom Salts bath, soaking???
It has magnesium in it which is suppose to be good for the body.

Do you do stretches for your hip??
really helps to lubricate the joints with gentle stretches.

Rosie,
I miss you too, what ever you can get in here go for it.
maybe if you use your Email to write out what you want to say, and Copy/Paste it to SParks will help, to keep for losing it????

You all have a marvelous day tomorrow.

Hi Ladies,
Yvonne I love the poster it made me laugh. I am from Australia but have been living in Dubai for 2 years before that I was living in Saudi Arabia for 6 years and going home a couple of times a year.
The fire was big but no one hurt its a bit strange because the same place had a fire last year.

Joan I hope you are having a great day and your not in any pain.

Love Rosie

Good morning ladies,

I can't have my MRI today because whomever was to get things set up with an approval from my insurance company at my doctor's office did not follow through. So now I've been put off until next Monday, that is if the approval is sent in. I'm so ticked off with these people.
Also to add insult to injury, I have a cold or the making's of a sinus infection. It just keeps getting better and better, and I keep telling myself, ''it could be so much worse", and I know all too well it could be. I'm just very irritated with everything.

Love,
Joan

Yvonne, love, love your poster you added, there have been many days I have felt and done the same thing. emoticon Things happen that make it where we can't get to our meetings, its called life. Enjoy your hike with your friends. Zumba, I have a friend in Louisville, that loves her Zumba class. I can't do Zumba due to I just can't make those moves.

Rosie, the fire was a big hotel under construction in Daubi. I'm just glad it was not your place. So sorry your still having trouble posting. I miss you when your not around. emoticon

Have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Tomorrow I am doing a hike with friends from the YMCA
it trumps WW to do my Zumba and hike for 3+ miles

Hi Ladies,
I just don't know what's happening to my post, I posted on here yesterday but it didn't show up, it's a pain.

I haven't heard about the fire here I will have to look it up, I don't like listening to the news.

Joan and Yvonne hope you both have a great day,
Love Rosie.

Yvonne, I love the picture you posted. What kind of tree is that. It's beautiful. The red bud tress are in bloom down here.

Good morning Rosie, I saw on the news last night this big building that caught on fire in Dabui, is that close to where you are? Be safe.

Nothing to report from here, I'm ready for the week and way past ready to find out why I'm in so much pain. The weekend was awful with the pain. This too shall pass.

Love,
Joan

Good morning ladies,
Brand new week starting and I hope both of you have a good week. Yvonne, I sure hope your friends, begin to see some improvement with their health issues.
Rosie, hope things are going well for you as well. For me, I'm just hoping and praying the MRI I have scheduled for Wednesday afternoon will shed some light on my hip/back problems. I'm very frustrated, and very tired of dealing with this, and I keep telling myself, ''it could be so much worse," and it could be. I'm just tired of not being able to do the things I could do back in January.

Make it a great week Ladies.

Love,
Joan

Yvonne, you are such a wonderful friend to your friends. I'm so glad you were able to spend some time with your family, sometimes that is all we need to just recharge ourselves.

Rosie, hope your doing okay. I miss you when your not around.

I was up 3/4 of a pound at weigh in yesterday, I was happy with that due to it could have been oh so much worse. My Southwestern chicken bean salad was a hit, and this time we only had one person to bring a dessert and that was a sugar free banana pudding. I think they may have listened to what I was saying, ''we need more protein."

Not sure what I'm going to do this weekend, but I know it won't be much. Have a great day Ladies.

Love,
Joan

Good point
Great for the spine, but other body parts can be effected.

Have had a marvelous day, needed it badly.
Dealing with lifes ups and downs and friends Health issues.
Scary times for them.
I was being a caregiver, driving to appts, being a second set of ears, shopping for food, supporting a spouse at the ER and hospital stays.
its Exhausting.
took its toll on me.
But a bit of rest and I am good
Spent the day with dd and Gks.
had breakfast out and shopped a bit for fun things.
I really needed my family.

Good morning Rosie, and Yvonne.

Yvonne, I have been on the inversion table and that is not a good fit for me. So we haven't done that anymore. I think the Chiropractor had me turned upside down too far and the gravity on my left knee, which is almost shot as well, the pulling on that made my knee swell and I could hardly walk. My Niece who has an inversion table said to me, ''I'd never have you on that due to those fake hips, too many things could get pulled away."

Rosie, Hope all is well with you. Love to see you around when you can get something posted. I don't seem to be having as much trouble with the site as I had been having.

Here we are the last day of March, can you believe how quickly this month has gone. Have a great start to the week.

Love,
Joan

That's Great news Joan
Hoping you continue to have success.
Stretches are excellent for the disk.
Has anyone thought an Inversion Table, might help??
It uses gravity to separate our disk t get the fluid moving and circulating.

The couple isn't living with me, but are our BFFs and we would help them in anyway we can.
its heart breaking to see someones health go.
I can see how aging is even harder to lose independence and get financially in trouble.

With Medicare, IF....you are kept in a hospital in Observation......Insurance doesn't pay???
so they have 2 1/2 days of observation to pay for :(

I am hoping her brother can appeal and show she indeed needed other drugs to slow the A-Fib to a suitable number, before releasing her.

Insurance companies are really getting difficult.

ROSIE,
Have you always lived in another Country?
Sounds Hot where you are.

Think I need a nap, my eyes are getting heavy.

Talk with ya all later :)

Good morning Ladies,

Dentist appointment turned out great. Look Mom, no cavities. emoticon The teck told me I was doing a great job. That always makes me feel good.

Had my doctor's appointment yesterday after, and am set up for an MRI next Wednesday.

That is about it from here, beautiful day yesterday and today we have to be on guard for storms tonight.

Have a great day.

Good morning ladies,
I had my other dry needling session yesterday, and I think this one worked better, for two reasons. 1. I actually felt most of the needles she inserted, and 2. I could actually walk more upright when I left. This time she put six needles in my lower back and when she got done she put this little electrode thing on there and left me for about 5 or 10 minutes, felt great.
Today dentist appointment and this afternoon doctor's appointment.

Hope you both have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Yvonne, such great news, you lost a pound and it seems your friend is doing some better. You are a wonderful friend to take these folks into your home. Blessing upon you.

I do have compressed, and bulging disc in my back, have had those for years and years. Yesterday after going to PT later that day I seem to hurt less. I've been doing stretches on my bed, taking a towel and stretching my legs as far as I can, and I'm thinking that is helping as well. I do have a doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon, my two sister's think an MRI is in order, its been a little over a year since I've had one. Another thing I did was, I did not go to the Chiropractor yesterday, my two sister's when I told them this, replied, ''I've been wanting to tell you not to go. I don't think that is good since you have so much metal in you, and you can make that metal move like you can just a regular joint." Today I have another dry needling session, and my friend in Louisville, had her first one yesterday and she said she felt a lot of the needles going in. When she said something to the person doing the dry needling they told her, ''those that hurt the worst means we got it where your having the most pain."

Rosie, hope your week has started out okay. I saw where Australia has some bad weather brewing, sure hope none of your family is in harms way.

Have a great day everyone.

Love,
Joan

Joan,
What do you think is going on with your Hip/leg?
do you have a spine issue?
My hubby does stretches that help him, opens up the disk. Lets the fluid circulate.

I heard she is doing better today.
talking about releasing her Maybe... Tuesday.

Her brother is down today to help and talk to Dr.s

Slept like a rock last night, took 1/2 a sleep aid and slept from 10pm to 7am
I gert the day off

WW was great.
Lost a POUND
I could hardly believe it.
so its 11 total so far.

I need to do something, I may have to take them home too. anyway.

relaxing today

Joan, I think that seeing the Dr. is a good idea.
maybe they will do an MRI and see better what is going on.
Have you had a cortisone shot there?

Have a great Tuesday girls.

Yvonne, so hoping you will find things better when you go back to the hospital today. Don't get down on yourself if the scale does not show what you want. Its called life. Will be praying for you to have continued strength.

Hi Rosie,
I;m suppose to go to the Chiropractor after my PT today, but have decided not to, instead I'm thinking I'll go see my medical doctor. I think there is more going on than we are finding out with my back, hip, and leg.

Have a great day and a great week.
Love,
Joan

Hi Ladies,
I also love the smell of clean sheets drying on the line. We don't get that here as we live in a hotel and get our room done and sheets cleaned every second day.

Hope you are having a great weekend, I was very good over the weekend stay SF plus ate well. Our weekends are Fri and Sat so it's a new week here.
