Weight: 160.4

Well, back in the 160's---again! But not for long! I did do some damage control yesterday by walking 2 miles on my treadmill but then I ate too much dinner. So it could have been worse. Smiley2, I guess you missed the entry where I said I'm going to Laughlin, NV in August and on a Mexican cruise in October so I have plenty of trips for the incentive to get my weight down. Now I just have to keep them in my mind when I go to head out to McDonald's! And, BTC, try not to worry about if you have to take a steroid drug---back in 2001, I had a bad rash on my legs that the doc couldn't figure out and she put me on some steroid drug, a common one I can't think of the name of right now, but I ate and ate (I was hungry constantly) and still lost about 7 pounds during the time I was on it. It was a miracle! Then when I went off, I gained it all back plus more really fast. So you see, maybe you can lose weight on steroids, I don't know, maybe I'm just weird.

Okay, today I will eat a light breakfast because I have an early lunch with the Red Hat Ladies. We're just having a meeting at the clubhouse in the apartment complex where some of the ladies live so we're bringing our own lunches. I'm picking up an Asian salad from McD's for me and some other kind of salad for my Mom. Yep, she's going with me, thinking of joining too. I hope she likes it. It's kind of silly sometimes, we're going to play our kazoos today and take the pledge wearing our long red gloves, heh. I'm wearing a purple t-shirt with cats wearing red hats on it (we wear purple clothes and red hats) and my purple grasshopper shoes that have a red hat on them, among other red hat things, earrings, watch, removable tatoo, heh. Such fun! Maybe this afternoon I'll get on the treadmill again, didn't have time this morning.

Time for brekky, just a packet of low-sugar oatmeal and green tea. Have a great day, my friends!

Progress as of today: 3.4 lbs lost so far, only 20.4 lbs to go!

smiley2 on 07/11/2006:
Well there you go! I definately missed that entries!! Sorry to say girl, but no excuses from here! You have all the motivation in the world!!!! Keep hard at it till you go!!! Good luck!!! Enjoy your Red Hat Society gettogether today, its the most interesting thing, and i cant believe they have clubs all over the world, even here in South Africa where i am. Really a great idea.

I would love to see a photo of this group all decked out, can you post one? I do love green tea, thinking of making some sun tea with this but my favorite used to be the sobe green tea or the arizona brand, yummy.

Do you still go bowling? My mother used to bowl in leagues and be in the upper 200's group...many trophies.

liza36 on 07/11/2006:
Your upcoming trips sound wonderful - wish I could go! I went to Laughlin once with a group of co-workers, and loved it. I'm not a gambler, but we had a good time anyway.

Have fun at with the Red Had ladies today. Good luck with your goal of getting on the treadmill today. You can do it!


maria777 on 07/11/2006:
2 vacations to look forward to! Wow! What good incentive! I think that sometimes if we just tell ourselves it's okay to 'hold' where we are, we'll be a lot happier. After all, sometimes just NOT gaining is progress. I think you're doing pretty good!

Weight: 159.8

Okay, I'm exactly where I was last Monday, weight-wise. That's okay, I guess, but I keep doing this. Makes me think this is where I'm going to end up forever! My body seems to like this weight and at least, I'm maintaining. Sort of. But I want to be about 140. I think that would be great for me. Health-wise, I really need to get this weight off and also quit eating the sugar stuff. I'm diabetic! What am I thinking when I do this? Sometimes I just don't care. I'm depressed and wish it would all end anyway. I'm old and I feel like my life is over. But don't worry, this is only some of the time and I'm going to discuss it with my doctor on Wednesday. I think it's just the menopause but I bet she'll want to put me on some meds for it. Just what I need, more meds, more expense. I have crappy, expensive health insurance (no one wants to insure you when you've been diagnosed as diabetic) Oh, and more side effects. Probably something that will make me gain weight! Anyway, we will discuss it. Most of the time though, I'm managing to get through the days okay. I find I'm very needy and need lots of hugs and pats on the back and loads of encouragement from the DH and he's not very good at this. Poor guy, he does the best he can, after all, he's a man! He even gave me a back-handed complement yesterday I forgot to tell you---"You're not so bad" but I know he meant it in a good way. And I tell myself the same thing sometimes. When I look in the mirror I don't think I look like I weigh as much as I do but maybe I'm just fooling myself like the anorexic girls do. Okay, let's move on to other things. Oops, no exercise today AT ALL! My left leg still hurts so I'm having another lazy day. Really I should be in there right now on the treadmill but, oh, well. And I had a big McDonald's lunch. Well, confession is good for the soul, right, but now you all know what a loser I really am. After all, I've been failing here in public for over 6 years now (yep, I remember you, grlbythec, welcome back) and I'm sure you're all thinking it would be very surprising if I finally did make my goal weight, right? That's okay, I deserve that. Now I'm starting to depress myself so I'm going to go get my laundry out of the dryer that keeps calling me with it's "beep, beep, beep". Have a great day tomorrow!

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 19.8 lbs to go!

maria777 on 07/10/2006:
Soonie, I hope you soon feel better!!! Heyyyyyy....you're back in the 150's...that should help some! I find that when I'm feeling down, reading in the Bible helps a LOT!!! A really good Psalm to read at times like that is Psalm 46. It is a short psalm and helps a lot. Also a prayer to the Lord...He's always ready to listen. He's there with you...you are not alone.


smiley2 on 07/11/2006:
You need motivation to lose weight. No matter how old you feel, there is nothing like some good motivation. There must be some event that would cause you to throw in all youve got to lose that weight. What about planning a trip somewhere in the future. Give yourself a month and see what you are capable of. My biggest motivation at the moment is wearing a swimsuit in Las Vegas and Palm Springs when we go on holiday....maybe you can think of something that really will motivate you too!


borntocry on 07/11/2006:
Hi Soonie,

Boy, do I know what you mean. I'm not even all that old but I find myself thinking that I've been around on this earth for a long time and experienced pretty much all there is to experience - at least all the good stuff. And now I'm probably going to be diagnosed with a chronic disease which is going to require steroids and guess what? One of the side-effects is weight gain. How come there are never any medications which make us thin and beautiful?

And I certainly know what it's like to feel like you've been trying and failing for years and years but the way I see it, the fact that we're trying to improve ourselves and our lives is pretty admirable considering how many people in the world are too lazy and self-satisfied to even make an effort! So our lives are a constant struggle - at least we're trying to do something! At least we're going down fighting!

Oh, my, your comments always make me smile! Thanks, guys! You make my day! Thanks, geevee, for the mango advice. I wish the mangos I get had that much fruit where I could cut off 3 or 4" slices!! I'm lucky if I can get an inch off that pit. And when I "slurp" off the rest, it really gets into my teeth. Oh, well, as you said, they are worth it. Yummmm! I like them warm though as I do most of my fruit. I buy the frozen ones sometimes to use in smoothies but they aren't as good tasting. Okay for smoothies though.

Wow, we had a great weather weekend here. Sunny, a few clouds here and there, hot and NO RAIN. The humidity is over 20% where usually it is below 10% most of the year so we notice it. Of course, it goes up when we have a rainy day. I didn't go out in the pool today though since I got some burn yesterday, uh oh. And I hate using sunscreen. Okay, so exercise today has just been 4 games of bowling with the DH this morning. I did sweat and my left leg hurts so I'm calling that enough. I would like to walk on the treadmill but I will do that tomorrow morning so I don't want to make my leg hurt more and then not be able to do any tomorrow. The spirit is willing but the body will not cooperate, dernit! Food for today is not really good but could have been a lot worse, heh. I had some Doritos I shouldn't have had and that was AFTER eating 2 big tostadas for lunch and then I ate one of those darn Smart Ones strawberry shortcake things and with FF Coolwhip on top. Why did I buy those things, why?? So good! Anyways, I'm trying not to eat anything for the rest of the day. It's 6pm right now and I'm thinking I really should eat a little something or I may die of starvation in my sleep, haha!

Oh, I have more incentive now too to get this weight off. I know, I know, my health should be enough of an incentive but you know me. I just booked a trip to Laughlin, NV with my Mom for Aug. 24 for 3 nights at Harrah's!! Only $199 for the both of us including round trip flight, the hotel and the shuttle to and from the airport!! Can't beat that, huh? They are always sending us offers since we were there before (huge gamblers,haha) and I just couldn't turn this one down. And then there will be the cruise in October with Mom, Sis and BIL. So I'm set! I have a great DH, don't I? He doesn't mind when I take vacations without him, although I always miss him and wish he were along with me. I will not go on vacation again with all this weight on me!! No, no, no!

Okay, you heard it here. That's it. Have a great Monday!

Progress as of today: 3.6 lbs lost so far, only 20.2 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 07/10/2006:
Congrats on 160! Thanks also for your encouragement. I know I shouldn't complain about gaining, but it's just so hard to see the scale going up so much. I've decided to just relax and eat well on my trip to Florida this week though since this baby WANTS to be fed :)


grlbythec on 07/10/2006:
Hi Soon2bthin, I recognized your name, you have been on this site a long time. I used to use the name Chubbie2, but for the life of me cannot remember my password and my old e-mail address is 3 states ago. I deleted all my old entries when I left the site and now really regret that. It's good to be back among friends. Girl by the sea/Chubbie2

Okay, it's Saturday and I'm doing okay anyway. We did sleep in this morning. I didn't get out of bed until 10am, yikes! We NEVER do that! But it was nice. Gotta shake things up a little sometimes. So I was off to a shakey start, didn't feel like doing anything but I helped DH clean out the pool. It was full of stuff from the wind and storms yesterday. Wow, Tucson even made the CNN news yesterday. I sweated buckets out there, it was already over 90 degrees with the sun shining. Should have put my bathing suit on first though, it was awful hard getting it on my sweaty body, heh. Cause, ya know, after cleaning it, I just had to get in it, it looked so good and cool. And there were no thunderheads on the horizon yet. In fact, there are none out there now either and it's already 5:30pm. Guess no storms today. Wow, I enjoyed myself so much out there, snorkeling around and laying in the sun. Then since I'd only had a small bowl of oatmeal for brekky, it was time for lunch, had a LC spaghetti and meatballs. Those are really good and only 5 points so it put me at 8 points for the day so far. Then I got on here and read entries and left some comments. After that, it was time for some treadmill work. Did 2 miles of walking in 35 minutes including 6 minutes at 3.8. The rest of the time was mostly at 3.4mph. I didn't do as much at 3.8 because it was hurting my left shin. The muscles there were so tight and it really hurt so I didn't push it. But I do think it's getting easier to crank up the speed now. Then I fixed a fruit smoothie to cool me down. Yummmm! That takes me to 12 points so far. Pretty low but I'm trying to make up for yesterday's disaster. You already know I did 2 1/2 miles on my treadmill yesterday morning. That was the good part. But then I ate wayyyyy too much for the rest of the day. It's a wonder my weight stayed the same.

Okay, that's it from Soonieland! Hope you're all having a great weekend.

Progress as of today: 1.8 lbs lost so far, only 22 lbs to go!

Brian's girl on 07/08/2006:
Hi,

Thanks for the comment, to be honest with you I am very lazy when it comes to my diet...this is why I love to eat the way I do. Some of the dishes I make can be a bit time consuming but that is just the soaking time. Most of the time I eat very simply, for dinner tonight I had three golden kiwis, can't get any simplier than that and the clean up was nothing, literally.

Have a great weekend, sounds like you are already, lol

inmorning on 07/09/2006:
Have you ever had those jamba juice smoothies? They are pretty good too.


geevee on 07/09/2006:
Yes, mangoes are messy to deal with but taste Oh! so good it's worth the trouble. The first thing I do is peel off the skin carefully so as not to lose any of that luscious flesh. Then I start slicing it in 3-4" chunks. When I can't slice any more off I pick up the seed and bite and slurp the remainder off. Then I cut the good sized chunks into smaller pieces and put them in the fridge. I love to eat mango nice and cold. It only takes about 5 min. SDome mangoes are 'stringier' or more fibrous than others.

Good morning! I'm up! Got up at 6am *groan* and finished walking 2 1/2 miles on my treadmill. Last time I did 2 1/2, it was in 44 minutes, this time it was 43:24! I'm getting there, slowly but surely. But now I wonder why I'm doing this. I get these tips in my e-mail from RealAge.com and this morning it said you may lose more weight by doing a lower-impact exercise session. In other words, you don't have to huff and puff the whole time and sweat buckets. As long as you're burning enough calories. Whatever! Anyway, I watched CNN while walking so I have all the latest news of the day, heh. Imagine those poor people who planned for years on taking a nice vacation to Atlantic City to gamble! Bummer! And it's one year today since the terrorist bombings in London killed 54 people. Oh, and Robert Downey Jr. is going to write his memoirs, it'll be out in 2008, oh, joy! Okay, it's off to the shower. Happy Friday!

P.S. Smiley2, I can't remember when the monsoon ended here last year or how long it lasted but I'll find out, okay? My mind is not what it used to be, heh. It sounds like a good trip though.

Progress as of today: 1.8 lbs lost so far, only 22 lbs to go!

Weight: 163.6

I wasn't going to come in here today. It's 4:30pm and I just checked in to read any comments and I'm overwhelmed with all the great comments. Thank you all so much! I never did get to the bowling alley on Tuesday and the rest of the day was the pits! I ate more than anyone could believe! Maybe I should enter one of those eating contests, is there any money in that, haha! Okay, not funny. Thus, Wednesday morning I slept in cause I was up most of the night, crying. It sounds funny to me now because I feel fine now, it's all over once again. By Wednesday afternoon, I was feeling almost normal. I have a doctor's appointment on next Wednesday so I will be sure to bring this up then, don't worry. I think it's just menopause. And today I'm doing pretty great, what with the bowling 3 games with the gang this morning and I just finished doing 3 miles of walking on my treadmill. Still trying to get faster at it too. Lunch was out with the DH at Ruby Tuesday's and I ate 3 pieces of coconut shrimp (can we say "fried"?) with the broccoli and rice and small slice of garlic bread. Thank goodness, DH helped me out with the shrimp. So I'm trying to make up for it. We had a coupon, that's why we went there and, I don't know why we do that, we always end up eating way too much and still paying more than we would have if we'd ate a lighter meal!! I said "no more coupons!" I'd rather stick with something I know is on my plan. I only had LS peaches and cream oatmeal for brekky (2 points) and I plan on a salad and fruit smoothy for dinner so maybe the damage won't be too bad. As you can see, I really can't afford to let my weight go up any more than it already has! Damn, I hate when I do that! I'm so mad right now that I'm really determined to get this weight off. I know, I know, I've said all this before but darnit, I've got to keep trying! Other people can do it, why shouldn't I?

I need to mention that #3 son has been on his own before. Since you all commented on this, I felt you needed to know that. He's not a total slug, haha! I'm proud that he didn't use the no air conditioning thing as an excuse to come back home. I think as long as he keeps his job he should be able to handle this. Rent is high even though he only has a one room place but at least this time, he has his own bathroom, haha! As for the potassium, he is trying to get it through a list of foods they gave him but I don't think that will be enough. He needs to see a doctor but he doesn't have insurance except for hospital stays. So he doesn't know how much of a supplement to take and I think it's possible to take too much of it. So far he's feeling okay but this has happened a couple of times now so I worry. Meanwhile, DH and I are enjoying being on our own, hehe. I know, TMI.

Okay, the weather here sucks lately, we're officially into the monsoon season. Humid, hot (high 90's and going higher this weekend) and thunderstorms almost every day. I haven't been in the pool since the weekend, I think it was. The monsoon is the only time of year I don't like here. Usually you can sit outside at night without a single mosquito but not now. And too muggy for me! Oops, I've run on and on for not planning on making an entry. Sorry. I love you guys. Have a great Friday!

Progress as of today: 0.2 lbs lost so far, only 23.6 lbs to go!

maria777 on 07/06/2006:
I believe you are back on track...we all get a little off track sometimes! I'm glad you did an entry today, Soonie...if you hadn't, we would have missed you since there was none yesterday!!! Hope you soon are feeling MUCH BETTER!!!!!


smiley2 on 07/07/2006:
Hi there,

My doctor told me that one perscription of potassium is usually enough for a mild deficiency. Potassium supplements dont have to be taken continiously for results, it gets absorbed immediately and stays in the body for months. He said i should get retested though once a year. Anyway hope this helps.

Good job on getting back on track. We all fall off the wagon more than we like or hope, but i guess thats just part of life.

Do you know when the monsoon season winds down over there? We are landing in Phoenix on the 13 of August, then we are driving up to Vegas and Palm Springs, you think the thunderstorms will be less then or more?

Have a wonderful weekend.

Sorry to disappoint all of you who left nice comments yesterday but the weight is up again. I had a really bad day yesterday, spent most of it in bed, I was so depressed. I didn't eat much all afternoon but then made up for it later. Oh, well, not much better today but I did force myself to get up at 6am and do the 2 1/2 miles of walking on my treadmill and here I am. Almost wasn't going to report in. I plan on bowling later too. If they are not too crowded and I can get a lane. I almost forgot it's a holiday. Happy 4th of July to all us Americans! Oh, I almost forgot to mention---#3 son has finally moved out. He found a small one room apartment he thought he could afford and left last week. And the air conditioner unit there wasn't working right and now he has no air conditioning (about 100 degrees here everyday). He got a big fan from us and one from Grandma and he's making do. I said he could come back here until they get a new one in but he's sticking it out. I'm kinda proud of that. BTW, he's 28 and should be on his own, right? Then last week, he took himself to the ER because his heart was doing funny things and his chest hurt and felt tight. He thought he was having a heart attack. But they checked everything and it was okay, his potassium was low though. He's doing okay now so far. Anyways.....

That's it from Soonieland. Have a good one!

Progress as of today: 2.2 lbs lost so far, only 21.6 lbs to go!

monet0239 on 07/04/2006:
Hiya sweetie.. :).. sorry to hear about your DS,,, its good that he moved out..I just watched the movie.. "Failure to Launch" which is about a 35 year old who doesnt wanna move out of his parents home.. hehe.. good and funny movie :).. about his potassium.. alittle salt water helps.. sounds yuck.. bu it does.. or have him eat alot of Ham.. ist salty.. thats one of the quickest ways to bring that up.. and a few banans wouldnt hurt :)..

have a great day hun.. hope you get to bowl.. hugs


smiley2 on 07/04/2006:
Hi there!

I also watched the "Failure to Launch" movie and loved it! I think its a good idea that your DS moved out on his own and that you let him go, that is the hardest part. I moved out of my parents house for good this year, im 26 and they just couldnt get over it, still cant! So i admire you for doing the right, but the hard thing.

I have potassium depletion too, i took supplements for it, since the doctor back in the States told me that if your body gets depleted of potassium, it usually has a tough time to absorb the natural potassium you get in bananas etc, so maybe your son should try supplements. Does he exercise a lot? I got my through and eating disorder.

Oh and good luck with your depression, the best is to ride it out, tommorow WILL be better.

Happy 4th of July

maria777 on 07/04/2006:

100 degrees and no AC? Yup, I would be back on mom and dad's doorstep without a second thought. Sorry to hear you are depressed, that is my stress eating time too. I do hope you feel better soon.


borntocry on 07/05/2006:
It's hard to do well when you're depressed. Try to make up for it when you're feeling better. Hopefully bowling will do the trick!

Good Monday morning! Back up some again. The cake! And after bowling yesterday morning, since I was in a mood because of lousy bowling, I said let's go pig out on pancakes and DH said okay. So we did. Our favorite pancakes at Village Inn. It was really crowded and we had to wait 15 minutes for a table but we weren't in a hurry and it was worth it. Too bad we'd already had some breakfast before we left for bowling! My bad! I had only had a packet of ls oatmeal anyway and I didn't finish the pancakes, almost though. Only ate some almonds later and then dinner at Mom's, roast beef, taters and gravy, corn, biscuits and the divine carrot cake with butter cream frosting. Everyone thought the cake was too sweet but it was heaven to me, heh. Ate too much of it though, bad Soonie. So not a very good day. We had bowled 4 games though, just the DH and I. So that was my only exercise. Today----ahem, I didn't get up at 6 as I'd planned, well, I did and then went right back to bed til 7:30, thought I'd take a day off from that, kinda mix it up a little. I WILL exercise sometime today, I'm just fighting a mood right now. I am down 4.6 pounds for the week but, really, as the DH says, I was really up there. So it all doesn't really count for weight loss and I'm still so far from where I was just 6 or 8 weeks ago. $%^&!! Okay, have a great day!

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 19.8 lbs to go!

monet0239 on 07/03/2006:
yummmmmmmmmm.. carrot cake.. my fav :).. Thanks for the comment on my entry yesterday.. :).. I do love the lc woe( way of eating).. and I am sorry that you feel it isn't for you.. MY MIL said the same thing as you.. it made her feel week.. but I know what her problem was.. she didn't eat enough carbs.. I don't know how many you ate.. but for some reason she was thinking that she couldn't have any carbs the first 2 weeks during induction.. thats not true.. you have 20 a day.(good carbs that is.. from veggies ). then after the 2 weeks.. you have 30 a day.. untill you reach your goal weight.. then you add to it.. at 5 extra a day.. untill you see yourself starting to gain.. then cut it back again.. then you know just where your body stands and know how many your aloud a day.. :).. alot of people don't understand how it works.. and to be honest .. the first time I did it.. I didn't get it.. but now , with the help of the other group I am in.. I understand it all.. :).. ok well most of it..lol.. but this woe isn't for everyone and I do understand that.. I am just so thankful it works for me.. and I love it.. I really don't miss the breads and sugars and stuff.. I have so much I can eat.. I dont miss it :)..

Okay, back down again! Going bowling this morning. That will be my exercise for the day. We have a little party this afternoon at my Mom's for my sis, BIL and brother's birthdays. I'm picking up the cake on the way over so I WILL have cake, carrot cake! Yesterday I walked 2 1/2 miles on my treadmill. Every 5 minutes I did 90 seconds at 3.8, walking fast (for me anyway) up until I reached past 30 minutes, then I did 60 seconds of fast walking at 3.6 every 5 minutes until I finished up at 44 minutes total. The rest of the time I was at 3.4mpm. I did the first 2 miles in 34:57. Not great but getting faster a little. I also snorkeled in the pool for awhile but some storm clouds were moving in and made me nervous so I cut it short. You really have to be extra careful of lightening around here, it's really wicked! We did get some wind and rain and all that but need much more. Okay, have a great day!

Progress as of today: 4.8 lbs lost so far, only 19 lbs to go!

Good for you on the exercise! I got on the treadmill last nite and did 1/2 mile after reading your inspiring entry about your exercise!

Darn those 160's just won't let me go! Just up a little so I'm not going to complain. I'll do better today. I'm up and dressed for a little treadmill work, it's 7:10am here. I think I'm going to try pushing myself a little harder today. I did get out in the pool yesterday afternoon for 20 minutes of swimming but never got to the yoga or other exercises. I really need to do that ab work. My left arm still hurts quite a lot, I guess it's just going to be a long term thing, but I will still try to do some arm work. I just have to be careful. It pops a lot, heh.

Okay, gotta go put on my walking shoes and get busy. Maybe some more pool later. I found a drowned scorpion on the bottom of the shallow end yesterday, eeeewwww! Gotta be careful. Guess he couldn't have stung me but I sure am glad I didn't step on it anyway, eeewwww again. I usually put my snorkel stuff on and look around the bottom of the pool first. Hot, hot, hot again today, around 100 degrees. Hope it's good sailing where you are. Have a good one!

Progress as of today: 3.6 lbs lost so far, only 20.2 lbs to go!

Haha nice story about your method of ridding the pool of icky things. Scorpions? That must be nice. The biggest threat we have around here are, well, june bugs I think. They're huge! Well good luck with your swimming and keep with it! Adieu, Jacqueline

Glad you're okay!

Good for you on the exercise! It sure does take discipline, doesn't it? You inspire me to exercise more! Since reading your entry, I'm thinking about walking on the treadmill, although I've already been out and about with my Mom.

Have a good day!
