Last night's massage was wonderful but the pain came back to bite me again at 3 am. Everything hurts including the joints.
Have an appointment with doctor on Monday.
She is out of town til then.

Jenae, I too had to get some dental work done this year. Had a tooth removed. Last fall had infection after a tooth was fixed for about five months. Dentist said, tooth must be pulled to get rid of infection. Tooth removed, bridge needed. Thankfully, the ins paid for half.

Last series of knee shots yesterday. Knees are doing better, PTL! Maybe, just maybe, I will be able to get back to my interval walking. I still am recovering from a knee injury I had in July, but have a knee brace to wear when I do a lot of walking.

Don't get to check in a lot, but still sparking'!

Been kind of taking it easy today. My left hip is giving me problems which make walking painful. I know it's partly the rhumatoid arthritis, but the rest is just due to my weight. The heavier I get, the more pain I have in my legs and hips. So I've got to get the weight off sooner than later.

New to the group. Been working on my weight since May of this year--mostly because I was feeling very out of energy. I was walking daily for about 1500 to 2000 steps each morning at 5:30 AM and using my food tracker. I was sort of in a groove and I was doing OK -- slow but steady loss of about 25 pounds and feeling very in control.

Then last week I sprained my ankle. :( With Thanksgiving Day and special family times (i.e. food!) in the mix, I am sure I have gained several pounds right back, but I am too stubborn to look at the scale! I decided this week I will try to eat sensibly and assess the damage this weekend. Hopefully by then I will have arrived at a plan B for working out in my home without waking up the kids, the parents and the worst -- the DOG!

Blessings to you all!

Barbara

Got back from thanksgiving.. went for a short run last night, so I guess I'm back in the groove as well.
To the person who is having to lay out bu-ku bucks for dental work.. I had to do the same thing this summer. If you are in tough financial straits, you might talk to your dr... they may cut some off the price.

Oh! My condolences! Dental work is so expensive! And if you don't have insurance it comes right out of your pocket! (I'm just now getting used to the two false teeth I got today. I paid some $$$ for them.)

Good Morning...

This weekend was interesting. James and I got out kids together to see how the day will go. I think it went well. Sorta. I am planner. I have always been and always will be. He has no structure at all. It is a little frustrating. Then we went out to eat. It bothered me so much to watch his kids order soda for breakfast emoticon . They didn't eat one vegetable all day. emoticon

I wanted to cry because all of his kids are a overweight. Not extremely overweight but overweight none the less. The first things the oldest boy who is 13 says to me is I am not fat I have a chubby face emoticon . I didn't even say a word. I am thinking to myself, he must get picked on at school because why would anyone say that without a prior conversation?

James made a plate for the youngest boy and he didn't want to eat it all. He said he should eat it all. I actually spoke my mind on this one and said we shouldn't be in the clean the plate club emoticon . It is totally not healthy. He didn't say anything after that.

This is going to be a lot of work. This is just something I won't compromise on. It made me so sad this weekend remember what it was like to be at school emoticon and overweight. I just don't want everyone to have to go through that!

slow in steady to get abs of steel.i did that video and at the end the instructor said that slow progress leads to the best results. my friend's mom lost 100 lbs in a year by doing it slowly. She commented that she gained the weight over 30s year so she could not expect to lose it a week.

Thanksgiving is my fave holiday.
Love the fabulous food!
We did a shared dinner today.
Everyone brought something.
I made a sugar free, fat free butternut squash kugel and sugar free cranberry sauce.
So glad I did. They kept me from gorging on too much of the fattening stuff.
Yes, I tasted everything. It was all wonderful. No guilt about over eating this time.

My weight loss is much slower this year than last year at this time. I may have to settle for less this time around. As long as I weigh less on New Year's Day than I did on Halloween, I will have won. Last year it was almost 20 pounds over the holidays. This time I'm doing not nearly as well. If I can get a good five or six more pounds off I will have done well this year.

Today feels like a Friday! We have a shelton crew emoticon at work. Those of us here at work are dragging our tails. emoticon

I wish I was in my comfortable bed. emoticon My son had a rough night. He kept waking up every couple of hours. So I had little to know sleep last night. I need to go to bed earlier tonight.

Well I made my pies emoticon last night and they came out like crap. I asked my mother to make me a pie. I am hoping hers comes out better than mine. I am usually a great baker and a good cook.

I am getting very excited. Thursday morning, James is going to see my home that I created for my family. emoticon I am hoping he likes my taste. emoticon

Then afterwards, we are going to his families home for Thanksgiving dinner. emoticon I am going to be introduced to his children as well. emoticon I am very excited and very nervous.

I think I am going to bring a pie. emoticon He said I didn't have to bring anything but I just cannot show up at someone's house without something. emoticon

We are going to start doing things together with our children. It is very difficult to see each other with work and trying to find babysitters. So I suggested we take the children to Christmastime emoticon at a Horse Farm. James is excited about it. emoticon

Thank You for your support!!

Weigh in tomorrow. Usually it's Wednesday, but I know I'll register an artificial gain because I intend to have beans for dinner on Tuesday, and I always get a big jump on the scale on the morning when I have beans for dinner the night before.
