Thank you so much Deb. Your prayers mean so much.

I started the month at 253.9 on August 1st
I ended the month at 281.7 on September 3rd

I gained a total of 27.8 pounds due to sickness from the sciatica and bad eating habits since I am an emotional eater and don't know when to stop.

I'm so sorry if I ruined your numbers that you have to submit.

Tremendous amount of weight gain due to bad eating habits because I'm an emotional eater, plus inactivity because of cellulitis, swelling in legs and horrific sciatica pain. Will elaborate more in the daily chatter.

Went back to doctor this morning. Having spontaneous bleeding on my legs from the swelling and bruising. I now have an Unna boot on both my legs for healing. It's very uncomfortable because the dressings are so tight on my legs which are so swelled.

265.2 still very sore and bloated

G'Evening Ladies,

Boy, everyone sounds so busy and it sounds like everyone is doing good. I'm so glat that it is August and that the hot summer days of summer will start waning down once September gets here. This week our temps are going to be in the 80's which is so much cooler and then yesterday God blessed us with a wonderful thunderstorm that brought us a lot of cool rain for our plants. Already, the flowers were looking happier this morning. Then this afternoon, we had another thunder boomer, lights went out and came back on, but not as much rain as yesterday.

I'm sad and really brokenhearted to tell you that our little tabby kitty, Waylon, died Tuesday. We took him to the vet on Friday, which is where I fell, and the vet put him on a new antibiotic since the antibiotic shot they had given him the previous Tuesday did not do him any good. In place of that,he gave us an oral antibiotic to give the kitty to help the infection. We gave it to him without fail and did everything we could to get him to eat, but he would not and then Sunday he quit drinking as well. We then began giving him water with an eyedropper so he would not get dehdrated and continued his medicine, but Monday he continued to get weaker, not better, so Tuesday morning we took him back to the vet and they gave him oxygen and IV fluids, but that afternoon he just gave up the fight. He was just too small to overcome the virus as he was barely 2 pounds. We cried and cried over him as we had gotten attached to him and loved him.

My daughter was feeling so bad about him and me falling and I kept telling her that she did the right thing bringing him home. God wanted her to take this kitty and give him love and affection in his last days. And we all loved him and cuddled him right up to the end.

As for me, my legs look terrible and my L leg is still purple/blue from my knee down to my foot. I hate to go out in public. Doctor told me to keep them propped up when I saw him Monday and to put hot compresses on my legs to help my body reabsorb the blood in the bruises. Today I went to see a friend so my daughter can swim and Carol and I sat out by the pool, drank lemonade and chatted while Ginia swam.

Both my kids are "off" this week. Robbie is off from work until Friday when he goes back on the night shift and my daughter is on a one week break from school. Her classes for the fall semester start up again next week.....so I"ll be alone again most days with the animals. We still have Grace my big German Shepherd and LuLu our sweet little beagle and then here is Ouiser (Wheezie) our precious calico Maine coon cat. My son is bringing home a Beagle puppy in September when they are big enough to leave their mother.

My daughter says that one cat is enough after little Waylon and she does not want to try bringing home another one but if she changes her mind, I will tell her to get a free one from the newspaper that has not been at the Animal Shelter where the germs are. My son planted the day lillies, finally,that someone from church brought us. I think he planted them in the shade, but I'm not complaining as they are in the ground and not in a pail of water.

Well, I've written enough about what's going on here. My weight is way up to 265.2, which is 20 pounds more than I was earlier in July when I was down to 245 at the doctor's office. Some of it is poor eating habits and part of it is the terrible inflammation and swelling that I have from falling and getting hurt. I take the lasix everyday but swelling continues in spite of icing it and doing what I can to get it down. I'm not going to stress over it.....I'll get back on track and get rid of it.

Take care dear friends....I enjoy hearing from all of you and appreciate your comments on my spark page and goodies from time to time. We are in this together and we will succeed.

God Bless,
ginger

267.2 -- swelled up like a tick from my fall.

Hey youall,

I'm still kicking around but want to thank everyone for their kind comments here and on blog about my fall. It really was a nasty fall. I'll tell you I was scared to death I'd crush the kitty when I fell so I threw him out in front of me and he ran for deal life. Two guys came over to help me but I told them to catch the kitty first because I wasn't going anywhere.

EMS was called and they checked me out and lifted me to my feet as I could not get up on my own because of leg injury and its weakness from the sciatica. I did not go to the ER because you have to wait so long but I did get checked out and very fortunate that I did not have any broken bones. Doctor stressed how "lucky" I was that I did not break something especially my knee cap which got the brunt of the fall. Both knees are black & blue but my L leg is purple all the way around now from my knee down to my toes. Really ugly. I go to the doctor tomorrow to get checked again.

Anyway, let me tell you about the kitty. Waylon (kitty's name) is not doing good at all. He is so sick with this repiratory stuff but now I think something else is going on. We took him to the vet at the Animal Shelter since they said they would treat him since he was obviously sick when we got him as he was sneezing when we got home with him. We took him to their vet last Tuesday and they gave him an antibiotic shot.....he did not get any better but got worse with the coughing and sneezing snot...his little face was covered with it and his eyes were all goopy. We cleaned his face and did everything we could to get him to eat and drink. He did at the beginning but has slacked off so we took him back to the vet on Friday and that was when I fell, taking him into the clinic on the steps and porch. The vet said he still had the respiratory stuff going on but his lungs sounded clear so she put him on an antibiotic called Clavamox that we give him with an eye dropper twice a day.

That was Friday and today he is not better but worse. Very weak and now he won't even eat the sloppy, smelling canned fish food which he loved when we first got him. I am so worried about the little buy but I think he's fading on us. We have been using an eye dropper to give him water and chicken broth so he will not get dehydrated. He just won't eat or drink on his own. He is still coughing. Called the vet and they don't all me back so we are taking him over tomorrow regardless. It's very sad and I"m afraid I'll find him "gone" when I check on him in the mornings. It's sad that these cats get this respiratory bug at the shelter.

Our other cat, Wheezie, is a beautiful calico that had the bug and was so sick. She was on three antibiotics before she got over it and had to have IV fluids during her sick time but she was stronger and bigger and has recovered from it, although she did flare up earlier this month and we had to take her to the vet. I'm concerned that our other animals (cat and two dogs) might get sick so if kitty is still alive, I"m going to convince my daughter to leave him there. She said she did not want to try and get another kitty although they would let us get another healthy one. My son has a deposit on a little beagle puppy that he will be bringing home in the next month so that may make my daughter feel better.

It's hasn't been a very good last few days here with the sick kitty and my smashed up leg.
But I will persevere and things will be better. As my sweet mother used to say, "better days are coming" and I believe it.

Take care dear friends! Love you all. Remember, God is good and will take care of us.

Yeah, I can see how that it is crazy and that is why I have a very bad relationship with my scales. One depressing day a week is enough. So glad to see that you were able to turn it around. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Praying that you have a more successful week this week. The scales and I DO NOT get along. Most of the time I just have to ignore them and focus on eating healthy and exercising. Doing what I know that I should do. My real goal is to have a healthy body, not a skinny body. Maybe this week you need to set those scales aside until you get the bloating under control. Most of that weight may be fluid and seeing the scales go us is so very discouraging just in itself. I know. Medication issues can cause such chaos and trouble. emoticon emoticon

Still struggling and up 7.0 pounds from last Sunday. That's a pound a day. Don't know what's wrong with me especially when I feel so bloated and miserable. Once again, praying & hoping for a better week.

So disgusted with yesterday's weigh-in. Actually made me feel nauseated. Hoping, praying and trying to get back on track after a horrendous month with a birthday celebration, my daughter's friends visiting, dog sitting for a week, then a school mate from high school (we graduated in 1968) visiting for a few days, then the injury to my leg and being in a Unna Boot for several weeks (still in it as of today) and then having sciatica and bursitis in my left leg which has been excruciating. I'm praying, I'm trying and hoping things will improve, also am back on my medications which makes a big difference. Prayers are appreciated by any who may be reading this. Thanks!!!

Thanks to all who post comments here or on my Spark page/blogs. It is very much appreciated and it is also very encouraging. I have struggled from day to day the past month and do not know what got my mindset out of whack.....but I'm definitely working on it because I will not give up and be defeated. Thank you all so much, especially the Lord.

Sweet! Welcome aboard this awesome team! I love your weight goals. That's ambitious, but definitely attainable. I'm right there with you on the Spiritual goals too. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

So excited to see your weight loss goals. The scales & I have a bad relationship so I don't do a daily weigh in. emoticon

Going to set my page up so I can see how I go up or down as the challenge progresses.

SW = starting weight
GW = goal weight
CW = current weight

As I figure out my goals, I will add them to the list, but haven't figured them all out yet except for these two:

1) Lose the 10 pounds I gained this past week and then another 4 pounds to get me down to 242 which is a goal that my daughter had set for me. Then we will set another goal.

2) Joined Christian Living and plan on doing a daily devotional as well as more prayer. I've been slipping up in this category. I give God the credit for my losing what I have so far and for healing me from my surgery that I had 2/12/12. (see blogs for details)

I just joined this team so will use today's weight at my starting weight which is 256.1 pounds.

I had lost down and weighed in at 246.1 last week, but 4th of July and my birthday got the better of me and I overdid it, plus was off my meds for several days, one of which is lasix. I'm not sure exactly what my goals will be for this challenge but am going to give it some thought and get them posted tomorrow.

Hope you'll stop by sometime!

Ginger (RobbGin)

PS If interested, my blogs tell some of my success already with losing around 100 pounds from what I weighed several years ago and a big abdominal surgery that I had earlier this year on Feb. 29, 2012.
