Hang in there my dear friend and yes I know exactly what you talking about. I too am struggling myself with the weight issue because of medical problems again. My IBS is causing tremendous bloating and the fluid retention is awful also. I have alot of pressure on my feet even when I get up in the morning that I just don't want to even put my shoes on and gained back some of what I have lost but the point is not matter what I am doing I can not let it win. I can't go back to what I was and I will make it. Like Jane says I am taking baby steps and just taking it daily and doing what I can. I too have not done the exercise like I should due to the pressure. I still get up and move around quite a bit but just not the physical exercise that I need. It is tough and yes I am down but we can't let this defeat us to becoming healthy. I now you can do this and we are all here for you just like you have been there for others before us. Your a great inspiration to the team and always will be with me. Take it slow and remember all the walking you did yesterday was exercise too. Sending tons of hugs your way and always here for you.

Okay from one Christine to another Christine. You can do anything you set your mind to. We are all living proof of that. I only believe half of what doctors say because they don't know what is inside of us (non-medical). I believe that you can get back on track and reach that goal, even if you start with baby steps and work up to big steps. We are all here to motivate you in every possible way. I also believe that "Just because our genes have fat in them, it doesn't mean we have to wear them". If you need to talk or need a "kick" in the rear just let me know. My foot can reach pretty high as I have had to kick myself repeatedly at times. Please remeber that we all believe in you and are here for you. We are Sparksisters to the end. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I may be here and you may be there, But I am here for you!

Never look down on someone, unless you are helping them up!

We can't fight this alone, so lets get together and lose those pounds. And gain our lives!

Christine, you've done it before and you know you can do it again. If your heart isn't in it right now, try getting it there with baby steps. Such as, making sure you get you water in each day. Then make sure you get in your fruits and veggies. Pick something new to concentrate on every few days, but keep up with the previous steps, too. For your fitness, try 10 minutes the first day...tomorrow. If that's all you feel like doing, so be it. Ten minutes is better than nothing. Each day try to increase it, but at least try to get that 10 minutes in.

How about if we challenge you, and the rest of us, to something each day? Think that would help?

Just think of your goal. Repeat it many times to yourself, imagining a picture of what you will look like. Let's say, the doctor is right. Let's say you can't be the same as you were. But, there's no harm in dreaming. Your imagination of what you want to be can help you for sure.

We're all here to add to your motivation. I am going to push you ace that dream.

I feel that I am falling and I can't get up. I am not motivated at all. It has been a long process...I was so up before I left for my Asian trip. I don't know how to get back again.

I have come to a realization that it is my biological clock and what the doctor told me is my genes too. That has been the thing in my mind the entire time.

You know what my goal is just to have a healthy BMI that's it. Just to be healthy. But even that can't sink in. I was there already and I let it go.

Like what my doctor said you can't be who you were before....just aim to be healthy. You are not going to compete in a beauty contest. He was right...but still what's wrong.......... emoticon

Yesterday, 21st July, I made myself a commitment. I will be at 120 lbs. by 20th~25th August. I will be at 112 lbs. on my husband's bday in September. I started a very healthy life yesterday, with a good workout and healthy food on my table from breakfast till dinner.

My husband asked me this morning, what made me so serious with my exercise and calorie control since yesterday. I told him, "I want to be at 120 lbs on my birthday. And, I will be at 110 lbs on your birthday." I wonder why he didn't say a word. Just a smile!

It was in the mid-90's here today...95 where I live. My daughter and I worked on cleaning out the garage. Boy was it hot! We didn't get finished, so we will be back at it tomorrow. Maybe when we finish, I will be able to park my durango in the garage!

I slept in a bit this AM, of course, I was up a bit late last night or should I say this morning. I did get my 8 hours in though. This morning I got in two great workouts, 40 minutes of step aerobics and 20 minutes of Biggest Loser Power Sculpt. I started out feeling chilled when I started so had more clothes on, by half way through the step aerobics I was stripping things off. It is overcast and feels pretty chilly still even though it is 62 degrees. But, there is a cool breeze. We are suppose to make it to the high 70's or low 80's, we'll see. I think the sun is going to have to burn it's way through the clouds for that to happen. Got to go shower, dress and start doing some things around the house. Have a great weekend!

Good morning team and contacts were fine. I got to order them and luckily it only cost me 48 dollars of 4 boxes with my insurance. I have really slacked off with my exercise due to a real bad back ache on the right side of my back. I hope this goes away real soon. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and don't know if I have pulled something there or not. I come home and took a nap yesterday afternoon so if ruined a full nights sleep for me. I still got my 8 but hoped to sleep alittle longer this morning. Oh well its time to start the day so take care team and have a great weekend.

Good luck with the eye check.

It's another beautiful day in the Pacific NW. Temps are a little cooler today than they have been the past few days which is fine. The past 3 or 4 days have been hot.

I have nose spray to go along with other sinus meds and it seems to be helping. However, I have made a dental for tomorrow to see if it might be dental causing sinus issues versus the other way around.

How is everyone else doing?

Wishing you all the best,
Dawn

I don't have a clue. I also know that my sugar is acting up again. Last night I had a reading of 231 which I have not ever had before. I will keep on checking on it and call the doctor if I have too. The nerve in my back is really killing me though and impairs me when I walk.

I wish you luck, RUSSETT98.

I'm having problem with my monthly period. It came a while (and really a little while) and then stopped. Why is this so? Somebody can help me here. My body system feels the monthly symptoms but there's nothing. And I have pimples (which I do not have in my 38 years survival). emoticon

Have fun on the vacations folks! One of these days hubby and I will take one. I have signed up for a cruise and will pick a sailing date after it is paid for. Only thing is the 90 day notice. But just me and hubby!
I also bought wrist/ankle weights and a pedometer. My daughter and I both will be able to use both of them...she is into pilates. So I guess I will start doing that with her. Wish me luck!

Fingers crossed: It seems that my sinus are bothering me. I have been having some jaw/tooth pain. I was worried it was dental related. But I went and saw the doctor and I have nose spray and it seems to be working. :P Yeah!!

We are blessed that we aren't paying for "most" of this trip home.

I hope everyone is having a great day. :)

Ohhhh... Cherly. I hope there is no damage done to your eyes. My son, who is 8, is on eye drops medication, too. A little correction hoping that there will be no eyeglasses for him.

That'll be tomorrow... You'll your wonderful pair of eyes again to see the beauty of the world and SP. Right? My prayers are always with you.

Jocelyn I know what you mean. I am also 38 with eye problems and mine were that my contacts were fitting to tight and cutting the oxygen off to the eye. I am not doing lots better after antibotic eye drops and get to start new contacts on Thursday. I will be able to see again.

I'm also jealous with the vacation... I wish I could. Sigh.

Having eye problems is some kind of emoticon . I believe I also need a follow through check-up. There has been dizziness and headaches these past few days. It's hard to have one near-sighted and one far-sighted eyesight. emoticon And guess what? At 38, I'm already using two pairs of glasses, one for reading and one for emoticon . Another sigh...

I'm jealous! I wish I was going on vacation! But, for real everybody have fun on your trips. I keep trying to get with DH and us come up with a vacation plan, but nothing as yet.

I use to wear contacts all the time, you would never see me in public with glasses on. I, too, ended up having to wear toric lenses but that was okay as long as I could still wear contacts. Now, all the sudden doc says I have to wear bifocals, never noticed any problems reading or with distance. But, so be it. The contacts are horrible. When I got them, I still had to wear readers to read but distance was fine. Then we tried doing one eye for distance and one for near. That worked fine, but I never got around to ordering the contacts because they still just weren't comfortable like what I have been use to for more years than I care to admit. It's okay though, because now I have glasses I really like and don't feel self-conscious about wearing them.

I also have to have the toric lenses but luckily my vision insurance will pay for some of the cost for me. For 12 contants per eye it cost me 30 dollars roughly so I can't complain. The bad part is each eye is a different prescription so I have to make sure I have the correct contact for each eye.

I bought some ankle/wrist weights yesterday and am so excited to be able to start using them. We don't have a very big place and we live in FL so I try to do working out in our place so I am very limited as to what I can do but I try to come up with different ways to exercise so if anyone has any suggestions?

Cherly: I wish you the best of luck and hope you get those contacts back. I had laser eye surgery and don't regret it. I had gotten to the point where I couldn't wear "plain ole" contacts, I had to have torik (spelling?) lenses and they were freaking expensive. :)

This week i prepare for my week long camping trip to Ky. I leave Sat moring at 6am. this is where my work out will be lots and lots of walking. I think i will be taking a break from the diet though. I lost the ten pounds i wanted to before the trip. So although i wont completey slack off i will enjoy myself.

I think June slipped right by into July and we barely noticed. :) I am just staring a new chat thread.

We leave on Monday for vacation. So, I am going to get good use of that bathing suit I purchased. Wish me luck that small children don't run screaming. :) We are looking forward to being stateside. Lots of shopping to be done.

I am not focusing on food while we are home, just on my exercise. I am taking portable cardio, I am going to try and do the C25K program (again). I am also taking my strength training bands and will do strength 2 times a week. :)

Whats on ya'lls agendas?
