Hi Mama,

I did not lose anything last week. Son is still casted from toes to mid thigh. Today was a bad morning. Do not know if it was the weather or just one of those days. My husband calls him his sunshine. But today he was a severe thunderstorm! He is off to school already. He loves school. I am waiting for doctor to call since it looks as if his cast is moving. You can see his toes now. before you couldn't. Hopefully I will loose some weight this week. Will go to the doctor for my toe on Friday. It is just not getting any better than what it has already. It will be to weeks Friday since the accident.
How are you doing?

Hey Maria!
Wanting to check on you for the week. :) Hoping you had a better weekend than the last one. How is your son?
I have been thinking about him all weekend but didn't take the time to check in.

I didn't loose anything this last week, just to keep up on our challenge. :( Moving on this week. Being better at counting the calories.

The autism thing is hard. Plus the MR and health problems.He only weighs 26lbs and is 3 ft tall and tube fed. My daughter is becoming a special ed teacher too. So proud of her. She loves working the the kids and has so much patience. It takes a special person to be a special ed teacher. You have a special daughter too! What ages does she work with? My daughter is doing EC-12 but wants to do 3-4 year olds.
It is kind of weird that I am losing weight now that i am not exercising the way I was. I think it is the calorie thing. Sometimes I was not getting enough with the exercise. Now I am really watching what I eat! I am the emotional eater big time! When things get rough and tough I turn to food! Not so much anymore though. The scale stayed the sane for a long time.Then it went up! It is finally moving down. emoticon slowly but surly! The doctor slow wins the race. I made my husband put the bike back in the living room from outside in the workout room. Eventually I will get back to the elliptical. I miss walking too! Don't want to push to fast though. And yes we can to this! We are worth it!

Wow! and you still lost some weight! I am proud of you. lol I tend to put it on under that kind of stress.

Girl! What a great lady! Autism is a hard thing to watch with your kids. I am glad you have the nurse today. My daughter in law is a special ed teacher. She loves to work with children like yours. :)

Hang in here, we can beat the weight thing. Glad you can at least do the bike.

Go TEAM! emoticon

Hello!

Well, I have not posted in a few days. I hurt my foot real bad in an accident at Sears. My weigh in last Friday was down 1.2 lbs. Not 2lbs but at least not up. Can't exercise except for the stationary bike and even that is pushing it. Suprising to me I have lost more weight this week! Official weigh in Friday! Right now we are really watching the storm and preparing! I am on the gulf coast of Texas! emoticon And I still can't bare weight on front of toe. But, life goes on.
I will add you to my friends mama.
Good Luck to you too!
I am not on that much this week because of the storm and it hurts my foot to just not elevate it some.

Maria, I like the challenge. Especially with the 5 week deadline. emoticon . I need the encouragement and motivation aswell. :)

I'll look for your wiegh in on Friday and you look for mine.

Also - lets be sure to check in with each other in between.

I get discouraged sometimes half way to my week!

Thank you for motivating this. And my doctor told me to get off 2 lbs a week too. :)

Lets go!!!!

Mama

10 pounds in one month is too aggressive. It is not a healthy weight loss plan, especially for someone with diabetes. Most dieticians will tell you that a healthy weight loss plan is 1 to 1-1/2 pound a week. More than that is hard on the body especially the organs that are already stressed by our diabetes.
