I'm so happy to hear about your weight loss! emoticon
We have to celebrate every victory. As for me, I am looking forward to weighing in tomorrow with dread and anticipation. I have been on track, walked 5 days, too. All I know is, let's take it one day at a time. Best Wishes

I just wanted to share with you that i also have problems with my knees. I worked in Wal Mart for 5 years in Puerto Rico. Super WalMart. I am Social Worker by prof. When my mother became ill. I move to P.R. was never able to find work in my Prof. working in wal mart i had 5 accidence. back and shoulder pains. had a router cuff repair last year. I also have degenerative disease and arthritis. So i know what you are going through. I also depend on God. He is my strength. I have learned that i need to do what is best for me. Yes i need to exercise because like they say a body in motion stay in motion. But i do what my body allows me to do. I know that my heavenly Father is in control of my life, so I do my part one step at a time. emoticon emoticon

I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me

Hi,

There is no way I could ever walk that much. Too many foot and leg surgeries and still need a knee replacement. Just have to do what I think I can handle. I lose the first 40 pounds on the "nothing white" diet and then the next 58 with Weight Watchers, which worked well until they changed teh points program. The new one doesn't work for me at all and now neither does the old points program work. I am now counting calories and praying I will continue to lose on it. If it's God's Will I will lose and I believe it is.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Patsy,

Thanks to everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I will do my best to look forward and not backward. Was just a rough time and I guess I'm having trouble letting go of it.

My mantra is "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me" Phil 4:13

PSWEAT, I am soooooo happy for you! emoticon emoticon Please, DO NOT even think in terms of what you used to do and being on a roller coaster - that was then and this is now. My mantra is "With God all things are possible!" I know this is true because of the things I have been through in my life - yet, each sorrow, each hardship, has brought a blessing and I know if I stay in faith I can reach my goals - even lose weight emoticon Please keep us posted on how you are doing. You might want to consider setting up a Spark Page so your teammates can send you encouragement along the way with comments and virtual Spark Goodies. I can't tell you how receiving a Goodie from a Spark Friend brightens up your day emoticon Keep up your good work emoticon

To improve your chances of continuing to lose the weight try adding a little exercise to your routine. I found that even just 5 minutes a day helps.

I weighed in on Tuesday and had lost 3.4 pounds. I just cannot tell you how happy I was and am. Just praying I don't do the roller coaster thing as I have been doing for years. I feel like I can continue to make progress just counting calories for a while.

Thanks to everyone who sent me tips, advice and encouragement. It really means a lot to me that I have a group that really cares whether or not I lose weight enough to take a little time to write a note of encouragement.
