It's scary stuff, even with all the reassurance... we'll laugh about it after it all turns out good, okay?

emoticon together!!! Events are hard, just be sure to eat before you go and go with a plan... pretty sure you know that. Best of planning & determination instead of luck!!!

I'm up to 173.4. I agree that the harder I try, I talk myself into eating, when I'm at these social events. I haven't given up, because I know I have to lose weight, I have one more social event next week, so lets see if I can do better.

Keep saying I can do this!

Thanks for the encouragement... I know my thyroid is under active, but the stuff the doc gave me didn't seem to do a thing. I took myself off it, pretty sure that had no impact either. The last diet that actually worked for me was "The Curves Fitness & Weight Management Plan." It was hard to maintain, but I might have to give it another try anyway! I plan to NEVER give up!!!

You're doing great JACKIEPEN! Just keep on going, you'll get there!

After my weekend trip to LaPIne State Park, with no scale, I gained .4 lbs. Not bad, for a weekend. Lets see if I can track my eating this week before my next weekend trip to Hudson Parcher Campground.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I've been tracking my physical activity for a few months now and I began tracking my food intake a week ago. What an eye-opener it is to see what I eat in black & white! No wonder I've been staying the same for several weeks now.

Yeah, it's challenging some days to keep an accurate record my food intake, but I'm realizing that its challenging being overweight EVERY day.

I'm looking fwd to posting a weight loss soon! emoticon

Thanks Dorothy, I usually have a glass of water at my side all day long and before eating anything will start with water - sometimes not a lot...but, it in late evening I seem to have a "last call" feeling and think I must eat something before going to bed. I formed this habit and now have to form a habit of NOT eating after my one soft serve 100 cal smoothie...

I think I've read somewhere that in 3 days you can curb a habit like this - so every night I think abaout that and decide - I'll start the 3 day no food late at night tomorrow :(

Jackie are you sure that it is food that you want or is it water that your body is telling you? Sometimes we think that we want food and in reality it is water that our body wants, so the next time that happens get a big glass of water and drink it slowly.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I finally got back to the 160's by 8 oz yesterday. 169.2. I've been making a goal of losing 2 pounds a week and so far never achieving it so this month I have a goal of losing 1 pound a week... and if it is more? all the better ...

My problem is eating at night. I stay up until 11PM. We have dinner at 5 PM so I have a night smoothie around 9 PM then tear through the cupboard to see what else is there...it is pretty bare - but, I usually find something and then something else...blah, blah, blah and this is what I must work on ...

Now that my Anniversary is over-with, maybe I can get serious. I just seem to be not stable and I'm staying around 172. I'm good during the week, and the weekends I just deviate from what I eat during the week. I haven't forgotten everyone is doing there best to support me, so I do appreciate your support.

Thanks,
Deb

Great news Nancy and she is right about not worrying too. Worrying will only make you sick and you don't want that.

Thanks every one for the support. I may not be able to run but I want to get back on my three wheeler and start that again. I stopped it when my late husband ended up in a wheelchair and needed me to help him with getting around and he did fall a couple of times but I was there to catch him or help him get off the floor.

Nancy_ICANDOIT,

Great news about your lump on your nose! Skin Cancer is so scary, and when I was younger I'd try to get the darkest tan for the summer. Living in California, that was the biggest thing to do, compare your tan with others. Now I try to watch how much sun I get.

Thanks for the Spark Goodie!

Great to have found the problem!

My DH has had 3 angioplasties - they are have become simple to perform and great to solve the needed blood flow . We'll see you running and jumping in no time :) huh???

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

The EKG test is usually the basic test that they first do, which can indicate where the problem is around your heart.

The next test that they might do that my husband had, was in Diagnostic Imaging, where the ultrasound machine takes several pictures in different positions around your heart. They inject a radioisotope in your IV, to see the isotope flow in your blood. Its another way of doing a stress test, without getting on a treadmill. Any obstruction in your arteries would show up in the xray.
From that test, the Doctor will be able to determine what to do.

Kick back and take care, till the Doc sees you!

Deb

I live in Central Florida and I saw him today and they are going to do a echo-cardiogram non the 15th and then on the 22 they will go in and see what is going on. He also said not to do any exercises until he gives the clearance for it

I'm not sure where your located, but at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center they have the best Cardiologist's in Oregon. I hope you've chosen a good hospital that has the best Cardiologist Team in your state. Just to get you to relax and be at ease, the Heart Procedures are way better than when my husband went in 19 years ago, so you should feel your in good hands.

Hope this helps,
Deb

Thanks for your feedback everyone!

DJ4Health,
I hope your heart will check out fine, sometimes just the scare of something wrong can raise your blood pressure. Two weeks ago, I went to the ER with my husband, who thought he was having a heart attack. He had a heart attack 19 years ago, which they put in a couple of stents. He was more than fine after he had all the tests taken on him and he was ready to get out of the hospital, after being a pin cushion. But taking the tests cleared any doubt that the stents were plugged up, so it was relieving. I wish good news for you, so hang in there!

Deb

Hi Everyone,
I'm starting at 174.8 today! My computer was in the shop and I just got it back Friday. I know it's hard during the Summer to lose. There's just too many food attractions during the summer, but I know if I don't get a hold of myself, I'm definitely will be like a runaway train, just slowly going up. I can blame my husband, since h's good at getting me distracted, but I know its me.

I wont make a bet that I'll be good, but I'll put more effort for July and August. I need to get back to 170.0, so that's my Goal.

Deb

We went on a week long bike trip and there was little to do with calorie count. I don't bike but I enjoyed the heavy meals after :(

So this morning a week later I'm back to what I was before the trip - and nothing planned for hte rest of the summer that should stop me from achieving my goal. I have a goal each week on my calendar and I expect I'll be able to achieve it ... about 2 pounds a week...

I'm starting today at 169.8 - we'll see... I'm determined to get this extra weight off and I've been working on it but not hard enough -

LET'S GO!

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS!

What exactly do you want us to do... once a week weigh-in or what... besides lose it?!? I'm already doing a No Sugar Challenge, but hopefully they'll work together.

I'm starting at 195.8, which is up again too! ~~ Donna
