Sometimes real life just gets in the way of all your best laid plans. I have been trying to deal with Beau's depression. He and his girlfriend finally made the break up official. He is totally depressed and down on himself. It hurts my heart to see my child suffering this way. But, we will perservere.

I have been doing fine with working out. Had a few bad eating choices days, but overall, have stayed consistent. I am working out with Vince 4 days a week now. The pool has been closed due to cleaning, so instead I hit the gym and do the ellipitical. I can now do 4 miles in an hour. I am working on getting to 5 miles in an hour.

Hope you are all doing well. I have made a vow to be more consistent here. Will try to at least log on every other day. Even to just let you know that I have nothing new to share.

Take care dear diarists. Be Blessed!

Progress as of today: 46 lbs lost so far, only 49 lbs to go!

Hi!...... Glad to hear from you..Sorry to hear of your troubles with your son... Love can "hurt" so bad sometimes, but growth from it is more the reward in the end... Hang in there....Your doing great!


mmuraro on 03/31/2008:
hey, good to hear from you again. sorry about your son. heartbreak is hard. good news is that it goes away with time. :) congrats on working out, sounds great! hugs!

I am so sorry your son is having a hard time right now. It will get better in the long run. That special someone is out there for all of us. We just have to see where God leads us. Have a wonderful evening.

I can't believe I have let 2 weeks go by without checking in. Bad me! In my defense, I have been very busy. Work is just insane. Weekends were busy too! Went out and about....Saw Phanthom of the Opera....GREAT SHOW. Have been working out faithfully. My knee is still giving me problems but Vince and I have worked out an alternate routine to give it a good rest...as much as we can considering that you really engage all your muscles in some of these exercises so my knee tends to tighten up on me. Plus, the Naprosyn makes my tummy hurt. I try to take it with food, but no big difference.

Anyway....sorry I was absent again. I will truly try to do better. I have been slightly depressed for the past few weeks. Eddy is always on my mind. It's been 2 years + and I miss him more than ever. He really is my forever love.

Enough with my maudlin whine. I plan to stick to my 1500 calorie game plan today. So far have had 300 calories for breakfast. Will work-out tonight with Vince at gym. 1 hour of strength training and 30 minutes of cardio.

You all have a fabulous day darlings! Be Blessed!

Hey glad you are back. I know what you mean about getting busy. I love the Phanthom of the Opera saw 5 times. Mind you the tickets where not cheap. LOL When you lose a loved one it hurts for a long time. Hang in there. Have a good day.


thinnsidenotout on 03/18/2008:
Vince sounds like he is very good to you...That helps tremendously I am sure to have that support as well....I always liked that name anyway (secret love Vince Gill, before he married my hubbies secret love Amy Grant)...... YOu have shown great endourance and strength in working around your injuries/pains and that is GREAT!!!! Congratulations!

Hi all! I have added a Cardio Workout with Vince to my schedule. 3 times a week for 30 minutes in addition to the 3 days a week of strength training. And then I reinjured my knee. Went back to the Dr. yesterday. He says I have an inflammed knee and if the anti-inflammatory meds don't work he will drain it by inserting a needle and sucking out the fluid. I am to stay off of it for the next few days. Hard to do.

Oh, well, guess it will just have to be a slight break. But I have an appointment with Vince on Friday night and then again on Sunday. We will take it easy, but I can not afford to quit.

Hope you are all doing well. Will check back soon.

Be Blessed.

thinnsidenotout on 03/05/2008:
OUCH!!!!....Sorry:~( You WILL make it.....You have done so good!!! Hang in there....make sure to ask about the anti-inflammatories maybe causing fluid retention...don't want you to get discouraged if you seem to stay at a stand still or gain a tad (could be plain old side-effects and NOT your diet)...

Check in on ya next time..... ((healing thoughts))


workingit2 on 03/05/2008:
You may want to follow the advice of the doctor and stay off it as much as possible, you don't want to end up needing surgery and having to be off it for weeks, vs. days. Sometimes it isn't worth working out when you are facing a potentially larger injury. The saying "no pain no gain" is not cool lol

FEEL BETTER!!

I have hit another Plateau. This is so stressful. I have really been working out hard and I have even been leading the water aerobics class and pushing the group to work harder and longer.

I am watching what I eat and drink. Lots of water and no soda. Only whole grain breads. Maybe I am not eating enough.

And then there is the whole size thing. I am well and truly in a size 16 now. Went and bought 2 pairs of pants in 16WP and they fit fine.

I guess the key is to just keep going, not give up and eventually, somethings got to give, right? I am not quitting until I reach my final goal which will be 140. I sincerely don't want to be a stick girl. I have curves and I like having curves....just not quite so many.

So, I will quit whining about the lack of progress and just get on with it!

You all have a blessed day. Don't give up! Just do it!

thinnsidenotout on 02/28/2008:
You have done so good!!!!.... Staying where your at for a bit is way better than going up in poundage..... You will figure it out!

Have a great day!


legcramps on 02/28/2008:
You can do it, just keep at it! Will changing up your routine help?


mmuraro on 02/28/2008:
Hey, what lack of progress? I know how it may look to us. Today I woke up and was a pound heavier, even when I have been so good with my eating and workouts and It can be annoying. but we need to make ouserlves look at the big picture. When I look at your charts I see nothing like progress. You lost 8 pounds since January! That's so great! And look at where you were in April... As for the plateaus, I completely stopped losing weight when I was under eating. So make sure you dont eat less than 1200 when you don't work out and a few hundred more when you do workout. Always have a sensible carb snack before the workout (a nutritionist explained that to me) and change around the total calories you intake everyday, this is supposed to help avoiding plateaus too. Oh, and also vary your workouts when you can. If not, though, and you continue in a plateau, just keep at it than you will start losing again, just gotta be patient. Oh, btw, I read it's only a plateau when you haven't lost anything in over 2 or 3 weeks. So be patient... I am laughing as I type to you, because I am giving all the tips I was trying to convince myself of.. I am just like you! But really, you're doing amazingly well!


maria777 on 02/28/2008:
I always say...'not gaining IS progress!!!'...and it is...hey at least you are not gaining...which I have been again, but I'm back on track now. Sometimes you just need time to 'level off'...then the numbers get lower again...hang in there...you're doing great and it'll get better SOON!


TheMother on 02/29/2008:
No matter how frustrating a plateau can be, you should take a lot of satisfaction in that you're still keeping on track. In fact, you are doing fabulously - almost halfway to your goal! With your determination and perseverance, you will get there - no doubt! Have a great day and super weekend!

biscottibody59 on 03/03/2008:
First of all this is not the time to quit doing what you're doing. I hesitate, but you might want to closely watch your calories for a few days and see how much you're eating.

I keep recommending this website to others because it has alot of common sense: www.shapeup.org

You may be eating too much or not enough. Or you are building lean tissue since you've been at this regimen for awhile now.

Don't be discouraged--have a good day!

Howdy Ya'll. Sorry again for being so intermittant. I try not to get on the computer on the weekends. If I do, it is usually just to check e-mail really quick. It is part of my plan to stay active and not get bogged down in an activity that requires no muscles to be used.

Anyway, I am continuing to work out every day. Yesterday, Vince told me that he can really see the progress in my muscle definition. We did lots of ab work and legs, a little arms and chest and we jumped rope again.

I won't see him again until Thursday. We had to reschedule my Tuesday session with him because I am going to dinner and to see Brad Garrett at the club on Tuesday night with a friend who is also a widow. We try to spend some time together each month. It is comforting to have someone to talk to that shares your experience. You can really discuss the problems and solutions with an open heart.

I stopped for coffee this morning. I am having a slim fast for breakfast. At lunch time I am either going to run to Target for a jump rope or to Garden Ridge to look at Luggage. I really need a new set for the trip in June. I want something really unique that stands out in the crowd.

Tonight I have water aerobics and I need to find time to get some additional cardio in. I think if I just increase my cardio, I will see some bigger numbers on the loss side.

I will try to get back on here tonight after I get home and read and comment to all of you lovely diarists. Have a great day and take care of you!!!

Blessings to all!

legcramps on 02/25/2008:
Spending time with friends that have shared your experiences is well worth rescheduling a training session. You're doing just great, keep it up and good luck this week!

You're doing so good! Almost on half way mark and almost 50 pounds lost!!! That's like... you lost a whole Paris Hilton! Hahahahaha. I'm proud of you. Good for you to hang with your friend. And yeah, get bright pink luggage. It always annoys me having to look for my black bags at the airport! Congrats on everything!

Hi gang! Sorry for the absence. I was so busy for the weekend. My mom and dad made it back. They are leaving this morning to head home. My mommy is like the energizer bunny. She vaccuumed my whole house and swept the front walkway all while the coffee was brewing. I hope I have half her energy when I am her age.

I worked out with Vince 3 days in a row. Sunday, Monday and Last night. I have been eating well and staying under 1600 calories which is what the Biggest Loser book says I should be taking in to keep losing weight.

The doctor says I am anemic. Thus the dizzy spells. That and stressed out adds up to the problem. I am now on an additional iron supplement. My daily vitamin did not have enough.

Hope you all have a great day. Just wanted to check in and let you know that I have not disappeared. Just on a brief hiatus.

Blessings!!!

thinnsidenotout on 02/20/2008:
At least you have an answer now and it can be, but isn't serious now that you can take what you need...I am sure that your doc told you that it may "stop you up a bit", until your body gets used to the iron level it is suppose to have......You may find your energy level get up there and hopefully you can be as spry as your mom.... Keep up the good work and GOOD LUCK!


maria777 on 02/20/2008:
How old is your Mom??? Wow, that is FANTASTIC she is so energized! I am so happy for you that your Mom is doing well! Sounds like y'all have a wonderful relationship!

That is real good that you are eating well and staying under 1600 cals. Hope you feel better, too!

Good on the working out...that always makes a person feel better, doesn't it?

Have a happy, wonderful day! Big smile to you!


mmuraro on 02/20/2008:
Ah wonderful news. Anemia is not hard to manage and you'll be fine. You can also ask your doctor besides the suplemments what you can include in your diet, maybe some beans or lentils... Your mom sounds exactly like mine. Hahaha. Have a great day and keep up the workouts!


biscottibody59 on 02/21/2008:
Good to know you found out what's going on--hope the doc's solution helps you feel better so you can get all into your program! Sounds like a good time with your parents!

Howdy, gang. Dr. has not diagnosed the dizzy spells yet. He has ruled out, inner ear, blood pressure, heart. I am going to have blood work drawn on Monday. Can't miss any more work this week and Monday is a Federal Holiday.

Couldn't go to the gym last night. Doc doesn't think it is a good idea until we are sure what is wrong with me. I felt just awful not being able to go. I am going tomorrow night for sure. I will just explain the situation to Vince and I am sure that he will help me with some exercises that might not push me too hard....maybe we can do some basic yoga. And tonight I am going to the pool. I just feel like if I don't, I will be so stressed out that it would be worse than having a dizzy spell.

Anyway, so food today has been good. Breakfast 100 cal pack of Hostess Coffee Cake, Coffee (150). Lunch: Lean Cuisine Chicken Primavera (220), snack..baked Cheetos (160), apple (80), banana (100). That's it so far.

So happy that dearerdiarist is back! I will log in tonight and read and comment!

Take care all you lovely DD'rs. Have a blessed day, a peaceful slumber and an invigorating morning wake up!

Good to hear that a few things have been ruled out..I used to have fainting spells, but it wound up being my blood sugar being too low (hypoglycemia).. I am with yhou on the losing out on all exercise..I am so crabby when I miss my walking any day... Keep up the good work and I too am sooooo happy to see D.diarist back......

mmuraro on 02/13/2008:
Hope you find out what that was very soon! Going to the pool should be fine, but you may wanna have someone with you at all times at the pool, just in case, no? Good job on the food front!


MsKitty on 02/14/2008:
here is a poem for you on Valentines day Also way to go on getting so close to your half way mark. Don't give Up! Your Dreams May Be Closer Than You Think!

There may be times when you feel as if you have taken a million steps towards your dreams, and acted on your plans, only to find yourself in the same place that you began from. At times like this, you must not give up.

You must continue on. Though you may feel lost, bewildered, and alone, continue to believe in yourself. Do not allow discouragement and doubt to blur your vision and wash away your dreams. Visualize your way beyond the detours, standstills, and obstacles.

You will realize your dreams. You have worked hard and taken so many productive steps in a positive direction that you are bound to succeed. Whatever the hurt of the moment may be, it will pass. Tomorrow is always a new dawn. Today, you must pause, rest, catch your breath, and then look ahead. Each step will bring you closer to your dreams. The rainbows and the love that you deserve are in sight. Happiness is just around the next turn.


biscottibody59 on 02/14/2008:
Well that's good news that so much has been ruled out. Glad that thinnsidenotout mentioned the blood sugar. I was going to suggest noting what you'd eaten or if you needed to eat at the time of the spells.

I mention this because I can get an incidence of vertigo with certain foods/ways of eating--it's bizarre. Vertigo is very different from dizziness because it doesn't involve possibly passing out, but I thought I'd share anyway.

Keep up the good work!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/16/2008:
Hi Angel! haha. You're so right, maybe your dizzy spells are due to stress. I hope you feel better soon!

Can't believe it's already Monday. My weekend consisted of laundry and house cleaning alternating with periods of sitting on a hot pad to try to ease the stiff muscles in my back. I had a pretty lousy eating day on Saturday. I gave in and had lemon meringue pie and 2 pieces of fried chicken and 1/4 cup of fried okra. Yesterday I did much better. I had a whole wheat bagel and ham for breakfast. 260. For lunch I had a greek salad with grilled salmon. That was after my work-out. Did intense abs again. For dinner I had a grilled pork chop with fresh grilled mushrooms and whole wheat pasta. I prepared my pot luck offering for the water aerobics gang. I made some whole wheat pasta salad with onions, peppers, and boiled ham, olives, and romano cheese and basil vinaigrette. Spent the rest of the day doing some shopping, light reading, cleaned out two more drawers and tried to have an early night of it.

Today for breakfast, I had 200 calories worth of coffee cake and a cup of coffee. Have been drinking water. At lunchtime I went to do some window shopping. Picked up some mascara and toothpaste and the wonderful California Salad at Target again. Dinner tonight will be at the pot luck. Will just have to make good choices. But I will be doing water aerobics first.

I have been having some light headed feeling for the past few days which seems to be getting worse. I am going to make a Dr.s appointment for tomorrow. Just would rather be safe than sorry. It is probably just some inner ear thing.

Has anyone heard from dearerdiarist? I don't know why I am so worried, but I am. She seemed to be so in the swing of things and then poof, gone in the blink of an eye. Anyway, Connie....if you are out there, please let us know you are ok!!!

Hope each and every one of you has a fabulous day. Blessings to one and all!

I'm worried about our "dearerdiarist", too. Haven't heard from her since she had that spell of bad weather. Hope all is OK with her.


maria777 on 02/12/2008:
Thank you for your wonderful encouraging comment...I cried when I read it. I know you have been through a lot and I will remember you in my prayers...you are a very sweet, caring person. As for Connie, I don't know where she is either and I miss her, too! Let's keep sending her comments and hopefully she'll read them and know how much we all love her and she'll come back. I sure do hope she is okay. She is a very sweet, special person, too! As for you, you are doing FANTASTIC in getting to your goal!!! Big smile to you!

Time is something that I don't have enough of these days. Work is busy, life is busy and my exercise routine takes up the better part of each evening and by the time I get home it is around 8 at night. I am exhausted. But, this too shall pass. The weight loss is worth it. And, no the weight loss is not for a week. It is for 2 weeks. If you think about, it is 3.5 pounds per week. And it will slow down and plateau a few more times as I travel down this healthful highway. But, if I perservere the end result will be a healthy and athletic me!!!!

Tonight Vince worked my abs. Reverse Crunches, straight legs and legs at 45 degree angle and then draw circles in the air with legs.....hard!!! And I jumped rope! Good Grief, I haven't jumped rope since the 6th grade. In the 7th, I discovered boys and basketball. But heck, although it was hard as all get out to get the rhythm back, once I got into it, I went longer and longer without missing a jump. I was red faced and breathing hard and my legs were screaming and my heart was beating a mile a minute and I was actually happy! I felt exhilerated. What a bonus to working out! All those lovely endorphins.

On a sadder note, tomorrow it will 2 years since Eddy's death. I miss him so. I know that he would be so proud of me.

Tomorrow we also have the new commanding general doing a walk through in our office. We spent today cleaning in addition to our normal work. It was pretty easy to clean my area since I just moved in last week.

I bought a new purse and wallet at lunchtime today. I went to Target and on the way out I picked up a California Salad, yummm. It is endive lettuce, grilled white meat skinless chicken, dried cherries, walnuts, low fat goat cheese and poppy seed vinaigrette. Delicious. I drank 84 ounces of water today.

So, all around a good day. I haven't had dinner yet, I am not really hungry, maybe will have a yogurt.

Well, I'm off! Hope you all have peaceful slumber and a wonderful Fullfilling Friday!

Blessings all around!

Progress as of today: 46 lbs lost so far, only 49 lbs to go!

mmuraro on 02/07/2008:
Your day sounds amazing, you're doing so well. I am sure Eddy not only would be proud of you, as he is proud of you. Probably cheering for you while jumping rope too! That is hard! But you're right, after you're done the endorphins kick in and it's wonderful. Enjoy your yogurt, maybe through a nice fruit in there too. Have a good night and congrats again!


workingit2 on 02/07/2008:
Woo hooo what a workout!! And that salad sounds great! Take care, rest well.

CritterMom on 02/08/2008:
Wow...you make me tired just listening to all you've accomplished today. ~grin!~ OK...you've guilted me into doing a really good workout later (after I pick up the cat from the vet this morning).

I love that you jumped rope! I find that many of the things we used to do as "play" when we were kids, are great workouts. Try doing hop-scotch! Honestly...hopping on one foot, squatting down to pick up the stone (still on ONE foot)...that's gotta be good for something. I skipped during my walk one day, too. I'm sure my retired neighbors who watch out their windows all think I'm totally nuts, but who cares. It was fun, and I will probably do it again. ~wink~

Have a GREAT day!


contessa on 02/08/2008:
Whomever, Eddy was to you, I'm sure he would have been proud! Hey, I'm even proud of you for going to the gym like that and I don't even know you! :-) I need to get on the bandwagon myself! WTG!

Hi Ya'll! Sorry to be so late again today. I am going ok, still not sleeping well. I think I am going to skip the pool tonight. I have been freezing cold all day and I just want to go home, change into my warm jammies and curl up with my little Chica! Maybe I will be able to get some sleep. I am thinking that if I take a sleeping pill around 6:00 p.m. and just stay in bed, I might actually fall asleep. That and a hot cup of Sleepy Time tea will hopefully do the trick. I NEEEED SLEEEP! It is starting to effect my normally sunny disposition.

On the other hand.....look at my weight. I finally hit the teens! Yeah!

So, we shall see if I can make it work tonight and tomorrow I will be back at the gym and hard at work!

Thanks for all your sweet comments and support! I just adore you all! Still wondering where dearerdiarist is? If you are out there Connie! Come back, we miss you!

When I have trouble sleeping, I take melatonin and put my hot water bottle at the foot of my bed so my feet get nice and warm quickly and then I pass out. I know you are struggling right now, I wish you peaceful, deep slumber tonight.

Wow, what a great job you have done. You should be so proud of yourself! I have a friend that told me about benedrel. Take one at night (not the daytime one) and that has helped me go to sleep. Good luck. Keep up the great loss.

The weight loss is phenomenal! Is that just for one week????? Hope you're able to finally get some sleep. I know how I feel when I don't have a good one. I'm just outta sorts and every little thing bothers me. Have a good day...

Good job on the loss--I guess it's been awhile since you weighed in--at any rate--keep on doing what you're doing!

Have a good evening!
