Joan, that's wonderful! You lost fat, but the water retention of the steroids made it look like you stayed the same. It's raining here, too, and will rain for most of the next week. I'm glad your derm took off those spots, a GP wouldn't know, just send you to a dermatologist.

Have a great weekend!

Still warm here. Wasn't quite as muggy yesterday but still as warm.

Glad you got that taken care of Joan.

well off to get ready for work. Wellness day today. Free cholesterol, sugar, and blood pressure checks. If you have a Walmart close by you should check it out. I am going to get mine done I think. Never hurts to be aware.

Have a wonderful Saturday all.

Here I was all set and moving stuff around not heavy stuff, for my door to get put in today. Only to receive a phone call at 5:15 this morning that its not going to be done due to rain. Yes, I'm bummed, but its probably for the best due to there is less chance of things going wrong. So I'm scheduled for next Saturday.

TOPS was great yesterday, and I stayed the same, so happy, happy about that due to I'm still steroid-ing. Suppose to be cooler today, only in the 60's loving that.

Have a great Saturday everyone. emoticon

Glad you made that dermatologist visit Joan. You can put your mind at ease now.
Nell so glad your computer is up and running again. Where would we be without them?
I am tackling some much needed clean up at my house. Time to put things away and clear some clutter....

It is rather cold here today. We had a storm go through last night, no damage here but about 10 miles from us there were trees down and roofs damaged.

Holding my breath for you, Joan, at your weigh in at TOPS. I know intellectually that it is just a number, but when you get on the scales and it has gone up, it's still disheartening! Last weigh in I had gained 4 lb. in 3 weeks. Now, about 1.5 pounds of that I deserved, but the rest....??? I have just had to revamp my plans because of my intestinal problems, and I am having trouble finding my way. No milk, no wheat. I can't see that any of the "no's" help, but am trying it all to see if there is an answer out there somewhere.
On the plus side, I have two little girls who make my days brighter. They were waiting for my lights to come on this morning, and wanted me to come get them,. "Don't get dressed...just come after us! (5:45AM!)"...how to start your morning off with a bang!!

Running a bit late this morning.

I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong about something and fussing about going to the Dermatologist was a mistake. The doctor found two skin cancers on my right forearm and froze them off. Here I thought all alone those brown spots were just ''old lady" spots. Good news is I don't have to go back unless I have another breakout and she said ''that is when we would do the patch allergy test." All is good with my skin. emoticon

Oh Michelle, I hear you , we were 97 degrees yesterday, and suppose to be 94 today, they say we could get some rain which we need and I'd rather it come today because the guy is suppose to come put my new front door in tomorrow.

Nell, glad your computer is getting back to normal.

TOPS for me today. Not expecting a loss due to I'm still doing steroids, but I'm not expecting a gain either. So we shall see.

It's kind of cool and rainy here today. Not a full blown rain but just drizzle. I have weigh-in this afternoon. I know I haven't been doing as well as I should. Seems like I have trouble staying within my points for more than a day at a time. Need to get back in the groove.

Good morning. I am still having problems reloading my computer for audible books, I don't know where to go for help now that it's an Amazon company.

Joan, a dermatologist may help, they do know more about skin problems and their treatments. They've seen more of them.

I'm taking hubby to a balance class at the church this morning. His balance is getting really bad, he can use all the help he can get.

Joan I think that is awesome about the meeting. See you are making a difference not only in our lives but others. There is the push you need to finish this. You have a huge cheering section just knowing you got this and us.

Good luck today and who knows it could be eye opening. Or again like you said not worth a flip but at least you will know.

Have a great day all. Not much going on here.

It's Thursday, so today I go to the skin doctor today for the first time. This is doctor Green's idea the wound care doctor. So I'll do it, but honestly I think this is going to be a wasted trip, not being negative, but my feeling.

I got my hair cut and low-lighted yesterday and I felt like a new woman. In fact I felt so good, and the hip was pain free that I drove on to Owensboro and got my paint for the new front door that is suppose to be installed this Saturday. I'm so excited about that, its been six weeks that my new front door and new storm door has been laying in my carport.

Have a great day everyone, and stay strong. emoticon

Such great news Joan! So glad for your Dr. report and the WW story. How sweet!

I am driving by. The power dress shopping I did left me a bit behind I guess. My eating has been all over the board. Stressing about that darn dress for the wedding.

Have a great night everyone!

Glad you have some relief from the pain, Joan. Let's hope this second round of steroids will do the trick and you will be pain free again.

I feel for you with the computer problems, Nell. I dread having to deal with those problems!

Last night I had a stomach ache, so I went to bed early. Pretty soon the phone was ringing...."Grammie, your lights are off. Are you ok?" Guess if I'm going to be sick without little girls worrying about me, I'd better leave some lights on!

Sounds like a great meeting, Joan! Your weight will stabilize a week or so after you finish the steroids. Hang in there! I'm glad you got the steroid shot, my husband said his relief lasted many months.

I have my computer back but I can't get the printer to work. That's next on my list for today.

Good morning.

Well, I faced the scale yesterday at WW's and guess what it was up, 2.2, but I had expected it to be up a whole lot more, so facing the anguish of the scale I faced, and have to admit I was relieved that I did. Also we had three people to get to Life time yesterday. One of the ladies, Sandy this was her first time to ever be at goal and Sandy always sits across the isle from me, she's in her 70's and such a sweet person. Well when our leader asked Sandy ''how did coming to the meetings help you on your journey." I was shocked when Sandy said, ''nothing against you Janie, but when I first walked in these doors Joan walked up to me and said, ''Welcome, and you can do this," each week I would ask Joan questions, and each week I couldn't wait to hear what funny story Joan would tell on herself. Not that your not honest Janie, but Lord, that Joan is way honest about how bad some of our days will be.....but only if we allow them to be bad days."

Both Sandy and I got a standing ovation. You just never know when someone is watching and listening. So even though I gained 2.2, I walked out of there feeling like a zillions dollars after taxes. emoticon

On the doctor front....you thought you'd get out of here with a doctor's report....no way....anyway Dr. Green the wound care doctor released me yesterday, but before she released me she offered some advice on the steroids, she told me, ''I would ask Dr. Mills not only give me a prescription for another weeks worth of steroids, but I would also request a shot this afternoon as well." So I took Dr. Green's advice and Dr. Mills agreed and I'm so happy to say that I got the shot around 2 p.m. yesterday afternoon, he told me to start the steroids this morning and follow through like it said, but I'm just about pain free this morning. Color me HAPPY Is so many ways.

Good morning ladies. Just a quick hello this morning. I have to bring my grandson to school for my daughter as she has a very early meeting. So even though I don't have to be to work till late today i'm off and running early. I will have time to come home and finish getting ready, and have a few hours to just chill before I have to leave again. I will get my shower out of the way then all I will have to do is eat, and relax when I get home. Oh and pack my lunch.

Have a great day all.

Hey ladies , I have been planning on a triathlon race on September 30th for months now. Well, I checked the race roster and it appears I forgot to sign up. Honestly I thought I had, and checked in my receipts. Well, I do not see anything so tomorrow I will make a call and find out. Geez, talk about mind overload......

It will all come off Joan. Give a bit of time. You got this!

Water is a lot heavier than fat, That's why fat floats. And water comes off a lot faster than fat. Stick with it, you'll be fine.

I'll get my computer back tonight after dinner. I just hope my files were restored where I can get back to normal right away.

I've decided the number on the scale is just that, ''numbers." I have stayed on track this week, I have followed my plan. I do know I have water retention because my fingers are so swollen and so are my feet and that is even with my support hose on, those feet are tight in my shoes. That scale is information, no more, no less, it does not have the power to judge me, that can only happen if I allow it, and today I'm not allowing it to happen. We are STRONG and we have to emoticon .

Steroids will make you gain weight but they are very effective for a lot of things. You have to weigh the relief against the consequences. Hopefully it's a short term thing and you won't have to stay on them. Constant pain can be difficult to live with.

Yes, I had to take my ring off my hands are so swollen, but if I can get rid of the pain, I will put up with the water retention. Won't look good on the scale tomorrow, but that's life.

Whether you are struggling or not, go to ''You Tube" and listen to the song, "Fear He is a Liar" by Zach Williams, it is an amazing song.

Thanks everyone for chiming in. I know we all handle things differently, and for me I've been dealing with all this pain for so long its really beginning to get next to me. Today I have my last dosage of steroid, and I still have some pain. I want to be pain free because even with the pain I have now it tells me the inflammation is still not all cleared up. So I"m calling the doctor today to see if she will prescribe another round of the steroids. The steroids have messed with my sleep, I find all of a sudden I'm burning up, but to get rid of this pain I'll put up with the side effects.

I am suppose to get my new front door and storm door put in this coming Saturday. I'm really excited about that. I need to pick out paint to paint the outside of the door, the inside part will be painted white, but I'm going to go with a color for the outside part. I'm also getting a new storm door that has a usable screen for when we do get some of that crisp Fall weather.

This happens all too often, Joan, and I do not have the answer for why it does.
I do know that when I was close to goal, I kept weighing in at 3 or 4 oz. over. Finally, when I weighed in 4 oz. over, I told the leader not to write that down. I went into the bathroom, took off my glasses, my earrings, my bra, my panties, and came back out to be weighed officially. I made goal, and had no trouble continuing to lose after that. We still laugh about my goal weigh-in!
Don't give up. It WILL happen!

I'm afraid I don't have the answer Joan because I tend to do the same. Last year I was within a few pounds of my goal and gained back about 10 pounds. I have been working all summer on trying to get that off without a lot of success. I too tend to sabotage myself and I know I'm not doing the work I need to do. I will not give up though and I know you won't give up either. Together we can do this.

Beth I LOVE that song! It has really helped me too! Joan, for me, sadly the fear seems to win out often. I love that song so much I have the lyrics here for you. You can look it up on You Tube to hear it. It is a Christian song and I mean no offense to any WW members by posting it. Please no hate mail......... HE is the FEAR in the lyrics....let us all cast our fear into the fire today!

When he told you you're not good enough
When he told you you're not right
When he told you you're not strong enough
To put up a good fight
When he told you you're not worthy
When he told you you're not loved
When he told you you're not beautiful
That you'll never be enough
Fear, he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
'Cause fear he is a liar
When he told you were troubled
You'll forever be alone
When he told you you should run away
You'll never find a home
When he told you you were dirty
And you should be ashamed
When he told you you could be the one
That grace could never change
Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
'Cause fear he is a liar
Let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel
Let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel
Let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel
Oh, let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel
Oh, fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
'Cause fear he is a liar
'Cause fear he is a liar

Joan for myself it is the fear of failing. So If I don't begin and start how can I fail right? But in truth I am just getting farther from my goal. You are on the cusp of reaching yours. you have done the hard work. Are you maybe afraid you won't maintain at that weight? Is it really a must that you get below 200? I don't mean that in a bad way, but could you live comfortable where your at for a bit right now?

I have restarted so many times and finished none. I'm not the best person to give advice. Right now I have my friend with me and she gives my a text each morning and a push each day. Somehow it means more with someone along for the ride. You have a whole two groups along for the ride. Maybe get out of your own head for a bit.

I was never afraid of losing, just of gaining. When I was fat I thought everyone was looking at me and judging me. In reality no one saw me at all, they never noticed my loss outside of the women in WW. One Day at A Time, the scale marks time along with the calendar. I guess this is why some people only weigh once a month, and rely on their trackers to see progress.

2 more days to get my computer back !

What am I afraid of??"

I know this is no doubt the strangest title I've done but I've had to ask myself this question lately. For whatever reason I've been within six pounds of being out of the 200's and for some strange reason I just can't seem to allow myself to get there. Yes, I find myself sabotaging myself every chance I get. Now, why on earth would I do this?

Is it that I'm afraid if I do get out of the 200's I'm committed to see it the rest of the way? Am I afraid if I get out of the 200's I think people, including myself will just be watching and waiting for me to mess up?"

I have told myself from the beginning I want to be back at Lifetime status in a year from when I began this journey last year. There is no reason that I should not have been almost there, but I've realized as of lately I seem to be making sure I don't get there. Is it that I know maintaining is much harder than the losing part? I don't have a answer to my questions or what my fear is, so that is where you all come in. Tell me why am I not allowing myself to get to where I say I want to be? The floors open for any and all comments.

Here's to a week of being a better me.
