Weight: 161.4

Well, down almost half a pound. I really ate well yesterday and went to bed hungry again. It's really hard to get to sleep when your stomach is growling. And it didn't help that I had that chocolate snack bar (Momentum)in the late afternoon. I guess it was the caffeine. It tends to do that to me, keep me awake when I should be sleeping. No exercise yesterday whatever, unless you count the walking around Super WalMart I did. I bought a new batch of yarn to start an afghan for my son and daughter-in-law for Christmas. I never know what to get them so this year I have it covered. I got out all my craft magazines, I must have at least 100 of them, and found a great pattern. So I'll be starting on that asap. I'm in the mood to crochet and I found several patterns of things I'd like to make after I finish the afghan. Oh, and I went to the doc's yesterday afternoon and told her I'm feeling great now on the new meds. I still get a little nauseous with them but she said that should end in a few weeks. But I have lots more energy and my blood sugar is staying down now. Hey, my cholesterol was 151 too! Must be the Lipitor. Someday I'd like to get off all these meds and losing the weight and exercising will help a lot there.

Okay, today we're going bowling and then to Macayo's for lunch. Just DH and I bowling since sis and BIL are too busy getting ready to go on their cruise Saturday. We're taking Mom to Macayo's, she loves that place too. So that's my day. I may get in some exercise later if I feel ambitious. I hope you all have a great day. Take care and stay strong!

Wow, big loss today, hehe! 8 tenths of a pound! Wow! Oh, well, at least I'm not going up but this sure is slow. I blame the lack of exercise this week. (See Aug. 16 entry) Today I plan on getting on the bike later, don't know how much I will do. Yesterday, I did 50 minutes altogether--5 times of 10 minutes each. Not that great but better than nothing, I guess. And I was so hungry last night when I went to bed. I only had soup and a low-carb granola bar for dinner and nothing after that. But I had had a big lunch and breakfast so that's why a light dinner. And I don't eat anything after 7pm. I tell ya, I was thinking of Mexican food until I finally fell asleep. Have any of you ever wanted some kind of food so bad that you could actually smell it? Well, that was me last night. Oh, and the reason I'm doing light exercise is that I don't want to sweat a lot and accidently wipe my new eyebrows. So I decided until Monday, when it will be a week since I had them done and I won't have to be so careful, I will just do light exercise. And I still have to put salve on them a few times a day to keep them from scabbing too much. Really looks great, going around with shiny eyebrows, heh. What us women will do, huh? After Sunday, things should go back to normal, I hope.

So today, no gym, as I had planned yesterday. I decided I would just take the week off from that. And I really hate to, really. REALLY! I've come to enjoy all that sweat and work. If I don't work hard, I feel like I'm not doing enough. But I will keep the food part going well today. Tomorrow--well, that may be another story. I plan on eating Mexican food, darnit!! And we will probably go bowling again. I like bowling, I had bowled in leagues for 25 years before we moved here. And I must brag---I bowled a perfect game back in '99, 300! I was so proud, I may have mentioned it here before, ya think?! BTW, that was 12 strikes in a row! I still bowl pretty good, I just haven't felt the urge to join a league here. Maybe someday.

Okay, friends, lets hang in there and stay strong. My DH will be leaving on Friday for 10 days so I'm going to need you all to kind of keep me straight, you know, give me heck when I'm bad and all that. I plan on doing well but my hormones change everyday, it seems, and you know what they can do to you. Well, have a great day, everyone! See ya tomorrow sometime. Buh-bye!

Weight: 162.0

Weight---still the same. Well, there was no exercise yesterday so that's no surprise, but I did do well with the food. Today, no exercise so far but the plan is to do as much as I can on the bike, then tomorrow it's back to the gym. I have to be careful of the eyebrows for at least a week (see yesterday's entry) so I don't want to sweat all over them. I know, that will be difficult to keep the sweat off but I'll do the best I can. I just have to get some good exercise in. I sure don't want to stay at 162 forever.

Okay, I did get in to read all the entries yesterday but didn't leave comments, sorry. I'll talk to you all later.

BrendaKay on 08/17/2004:
I hope that you enjoy your updated eyebrows! I have always wanted to have that done. I am very light skinned and very blonde so my eyebrows and eyelashes rely on liner & mascara everyday or else I look like the little "oompa loompas" from the movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory".

Enjoy the day or two exercise break, your body may thank you for the rest anyway and you'll be able to get going again soon!

Weight: 162.0

Weight still the same this morning. Not bad after no exercise yesterday but I ate pretty well. Oh, yeah, one time I got on the scale (okay, this morning I tried it several times, not usually, hehe) and it said 159.2! Well, I knew this had to be a mistake and, sure enough, it proceeded to say ERROR! Heh, so I tried it 2 more times and it said 162 both times. Well, heck, that's good enough for me. It means I lost 2.2 pounds since last Monday so I think that's pretty good. Anyways.....

Today, well, today I had an appointment to get my eyebrows done in permanent make-up at the dermatologist's at 8:20am so I packed up my gym clothes and towel and headed out, figuring I could get to the gym after the doc's (I had the eyebrows done a couple of years ago so I figured it wouldn't take much to fix them up, they had faded out some and looked blueish-gray) Well, it was much more involved than that. She went over them completely with a new color, they didn't carry the old one anymore and said it wasn't a good color for me anyway (someone else had done it the last time) So after 2 hours of pain and agony (heh, not really, I'm joking. Well, it did hurt quite a bit and is still sore even aftr several applications of a topical anesthetic) she said not to go to the gym today and go home, put my feet up and take it easy the rest of the day. And, guess what, NO CHARGE!! Wow, I was surprised. DH said it was because they want me to keep coming back to them, haha. So, anyways, no gym today or any exercise, period! Fine with me, although, I really did want to go today. I'm loving my exercise---go figure!

So here it is, time for my lunch (2pm here) and I'm starved (not really, just a habit of saying that when I get really hungry. Have to break that habit) I will eat a nice lunch and watch my soap on tape (All My Children) Oh, and I just got up from an 1 1/2 nap too *yawn*. This is the life, huh? And, Maria777, I love the lemon donuts too *yum* Okay, you all have a great rest-of-the-day. I'll try to get here later to read and comment. So far I'm all caught up with all the entries. See ya tomorrow!

Maria7 on 08/16/2004:
I 'see' 159 coming for you! Go easy! Don't overdo the exercise! Stay away from those sugared breads...okay, I said it...now are we gonna do it??? Not likely....(hehehe!)

Weight: 162.0

Well, at least it's an even number, haha! One of those "unexplainable" gains. I did really well yesterday, maybe just a little over on points. I just had to have a cheese crisp after I made some tostadas for DH at lunch. But I did do the 4 times 15 minutes on the bike, for the total of one hour. I thought that would do some good but, oh, well. Maybe better I did do it though.

So today......well, I got up real early to go to WalMart for a few groceries. And.....I splurged and had a jelly donut!! Ate it in my car---does that count? Then we went out to Village Inn for the best pancakes in the world. But at least I didn't eat them all, gave about a quarter of them to DH. And now, here I am. Don't know exactly what I'm gonna do today but I'm thinking it's time to take a day off from exercise. I definitely won't eat too much the rest of the day, gotta make up for that donut and pancakes, heh. We'll see what happens. So you all have a good one. Thanks for the advice, Biscottibody. I'll see ya's all tomorrow.

Maria7 on 08/15/2004:
I tried over and over yesterday to comment to you and it wouldn't work... I know what you mean about your jelly donut...when I go to the grocery store, usually one of the first things I see is the donut display...I love the lemon-filled kind...and I try not to give in, however usually by the time I get to the checkout counter, I'm getting a few candy bars right near there, hehehe!

You're doing fantastic on your exercise!

Weight: 161.4

Happy Saturday, everyone! Well, as you can see, I'm only down 2 tenths of a pound from Thursday. That's because I was up to 162.2 yesterday but I couldn't get on here, son was doing some maintainance on the puter and then, last night, we got some nice storms and lots of lightening, so we just shut it down and unplugged it. So here I am!

Yesterday was a very good day---I ate 26 points, drank lots of water and exercised for 70 minutes at the gym. I did 1 1/2 miles on the track and the rest was weights. I've added some more exercises and also increased the weight on some of them. And I sure did sweat and, wouldn't you know it, I forgot to bring a towel so had to use the paper towels. So, anyway, that was my day.

This morning I had planned to get up early and walk on my treadmill but ended up sleeping til almost 7:30. And I just didn't feel like getting on that boring ole treadmill so I plan on doing 15 minutes on the bike 4 times today. And I will stay within my points. Hey, it's working so I must keep it up. At least, that's what I keep telling myself. DH will be leaving me for 10 days next Friday. He's going to Tennessee to visit his parents and sis and her family. It's also for his parent's anniversary, I think it's the 70th, and his Dad's birthday, he'll be 90. Anyways, the bad times for me are always when he's gone somewhere and this will be the first time he's gone away for that long. So I will need lots of help getting through it, you know, not going out for donuts and fast food. When he's here it's easier to not eat junk in front of him, I hate the hassle. So I will rely on my DD friends and the Lord's help. Lots of praying, heh. And hopefully, when he gets back he can see some difference in me. Maybe if I keep that in mind it will help me. But really, lately it is all not so hard for me since I know I must not eat the sugary junk food because of trying to keep my blood sugar down. And I do feel much better this past week. So onward and downward!

Okay, I should have time to come on here and read and comment. Unless we get more storms. The sky is cloudy today but you never know around here. Have a good weekend, everybody!

So, I just read your last entry, about the bad service at IHOP...the same thing happens at the one in my area! The food is good, but the service...sucks. Anyway, I also wanted to tell you good luck, I'm sure you'll do wonderful while your hubby is away, and I'll be here for ya (now that I'm back...again) oh, and thanks for the comment! I appreciate the support.

Still going down. I'm thinking tomorrow I'm bound to have an up, hehe! Anyways, today has been pretty good, just not as good as the last couple of days. We went out for breakfast at IHOP this morning instead of eating the breakfast at the bowling alley. Not a good decision. Bad service, cold food, well, you get the idea. I did leave some on my plate, part of an omellette (sp) and half of the toast. So I didn't do too badly. Then Dh and I went bowling for 2 games, sis and BIL had to go clothes shopping for their Alaska cruise in 9 days. So that was some exercise. Lunch was tostadas with fat free refried beans but full fat cheese (I just can't hack that FF stuff) and 2 sugar-free cookies. I really didn't eat as much as I used to with that so that's a bonus, the ole stomach may be shrinking or I think it may be those new meds the doc put me on for the blood sugar, I've been slightly nauseous at times. Anyway, they are keeping my blood sugar down nicely. Then this afternoon, while watching Oprah, I did 15 minutes on the bike, then another 10 minutes awhile later. I could probably push myself to do another 10 minutes but I'm just feeling kinda yucky right now. So I will head for my shower pretty soon, don't want to be too smelly at the gym tomorrow. I need to stop at Target on the way tomorrow and find a nice car cushion for my van so I'm not sweating up the nice clean seat on my way home from the gym. I hate to shower there and lug all the clothes and stuff and it always seems so hot in those showers, I can't get myself dry before trying to put the clean clothes on. I also need a new lock, I can barely make out the numbers on the one I've been using without my glasses. The lock is for the lockers at the gym, heh. I may check out their workout clothes too, see if they have something cool that would fit me. Anyone out there tried the workout clothes from Target? Let me know what you think, okay? I'm just wearing old T-shirts and bike shorts that I know I've had for probably 7 years, when I started this weight loss thing. I know some of the clothes are a fabric that lets your skin breathe or something. Anyway.....

So that's it. Thanks for all the comments. I don't deserve them, I hardly comment on here, sorry. But I have been catching up on reading the entries, you're all doing great! I'll try to do some commenting later. Sometimes I'm just in a mood or can't think of anything to say. You all take care and keep on trucking. See ya tomorrow!

Hey, another visit from the Whoosh Fairy! I'm just melting away, LOL. I wish it would stay this easy. But I know better. Yesterday was my first really good day---23 points and 45 minutes of exercise. And, of course, lots of water. Today, another good one, so far. I've had 17 points and, ta-da, 82 minutes of work at the gym!! I did 2 miles on the track and the rest was weight lifting. I'm not sure I will ever do that much again though. I'm beat! I just layed down for an hour but never fell asleep so I got back up again and here I am. I'm watching Oprah but I'm going to go read some entries when I finish this. I read most of them yesterday but didn't leave any comments, just nothing to say. But I'm with you all and cheering you on, okay? Tomorrow is bowling in the morning and I'll try to do some on the bike too. I hope you have a great Thursday. Ta-ta!

Runner on 08/11/2004:
GREAT JOB! You've been doing so well! Congrats on the loss!!! Your workout sounded intense!!

legcramps on 08/12/2004:
Great job, congrats on the loss! You left me a comment about what mudjarrah was and how I made my quesadillas. Mudjarrah is a mixture of lentils, rice and onions. It's awesome! I use brown rice. It almost tastes like potato, onions and noodles mixed together? Ever had that? I think it's my absolute favorite so far, I love it so much! I made bean quesadillas, not chicken. I can give you the recipe if you want it, just let me know. They're very good as well. I was supposed to make them with hot peppers, but I forgot to add any in, so the mixture was very mild, but still good.

Well, keep up the great work girl! Later!

TheMother on 08/12/2004:
It seems like you are getting back in the groove. Good for you! You're doing great on the exercise front (that's one area I need improvement in). Keep up the good work!

Ooh, it's so much fun to make a good change in the weight on here!! And going dowwwwwn! Slowly but surely. I think I have a handle on it now as I'm having an "almost" perfect day today. I've done a total of 45 minutes on the recumbant bike (15 minutes at a time for 3 times over the day) and I've had 20 points so far. Still need dinner but I'm not very hungry today so will eat light. And I let the couple slices of leftover pizza alone and DH ate it so it's all gone. Whew!

Okay, plan for tomorrow is---the gym sometime in the morning and eating right. I'm still not getting in enough veggies but I'm trying. And I still haven't taken the time to catch up with you all here. I was watching The Blue Collar Comedy Tour last night, part of it anyway. Pretty funny stuff. And I watched Dog Eat Dog and Celebrity Blackjack. So that was pretty much my evening. Oh, and I did another 15 minutes on the bike to total 30 minutes of bike added on to the 60 minutes at the gym. No wonder the weight went down a little.

Okay, I may get back here later, I don't know. I desperately need a shower or it will be pretty bad at the gym tomorrow, heh. I'm watching Dog Eat Dog now though so it will have to wait. I hope you're all doing great. Stay strong, we can do this! And thanks for the comment, MichelleP. I love me some comments here.

Runner on 08/10/2004:
I admire you for letting DH eat all the pizza! That's a great strategy, isn't it? I usually feed my hubby all the leftovers before I have a chance to eat them, too! You're doing well! Keep up the good work!

Whoops! That's what eating pizza will do to your weight. Of course, I had already eaten lunch yesterday when the DH brought home pizza from Costco. But I just had to be a pig and eat 2 slices anyway. And no exercise yesterday either. I vegged all day in front of the TV watching the Lifetime channel movies. But I'm back at it today. Went to the gym this morning after stopping in at the doctor's (my lipids are great, whatever they are, my blood sugar thingy test is not good though, so gave me some samples of something else to try, and my urine was really good, I'm sure you all want to know) She did an EKG because I've been so tired and out of breath lately and I had a bad episode of what I thought was heartburn the other night and, ladies, ya know you have to watch out for all those symptoms of heart attack that are not at all like the men get. But, thank goodness, it came out just fine, my heart is doing great. Sometimes I feel like such a hypochondriac when I go in with all my complaints but the doc says better safe than sorry. The out-of-breath and dizziness when I stand up could just be connected to the high blood sugar. We'll see.

Anyways....I did go to the gym afterward, got there at almost 9:30 and worked for an hour. I increased some of the weight exercises and only did 1 1/2 miles on the track. 2 of the machines I use were not working *sigh* so I had to forego those. I guess I could have used the Nautilus machines that do the same thing but I didn't. Next time. I'm really working on the abs, they are my worst part. I hate looking and feeling pregnant. Oh, and I had more of the pizza today, darn leftovers. I regretted it afterward, it wasn't even that good. Live and learn, I guess. Otherwise I'm doing really well today. Just finished doing 15 minutes on the bike and may do more later watching TV.

Okay, I haven't been keeping up with how you are all doing so I plan to catch up later tonight. Have a great day tomorrow.

MichelleP on 08/09/2004:

Dang Costco pizza those things are to good to pass by... yep been there too!

I think it is wonderful that your heart is doing good, and it is important to take care of yourself, and let them know when things come up! The blood sugar is serious, please becareful. I had a minor accident a few weeks ago, because my blood sugar was through the roof... it was 350 when they took it at the accident. I passed out after someone hit me, and then I hit a pole. I have made the doctor test it and retest it each time I go since. I will keep you in my thoughts!

Take care and have a wonderful week!
