I was going to start out today with "I hate, hate, hate being fat!!" And why I'm not doing much about it right now I'll never know. I start out well enough in the morning but somehow, I get side-tracked. And if I don't get that exercise in first thing in the morning, it just messes up my whole day. So today is a new day! I got up at 7--on a Saturday!--and got on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Better than nothing, I guess. And I really, REALLY didn't want to do it, almost went back to bed. Now that's crazy, I had plenty of good sleep, but you know how sleepy you feel when you first wake up, well, that little bad voice was telling me to go back to bed! What a struggle to win out over that! But I did it and I'm always glad that I did. And I may do some more later, who knows?! So far I'm keeping busy though---laundry and just general cleaning up jobs, and I've been watching the TV shows I taped this week while crocheting on the afghan. That keeps my hands busy so I'm not eating and I stop every once in awhile to swig some water. I'm trying to get the afghan finished by early December so I can send it to my son and daughter-in-law for Christmas. I sure hope I make it cause I never know what to send them.

Okay, yesterday wasn't a good day--again. I did get out for the shopping I wanted to do---Petsmart, Kohl's and Super WalMart. Bought me some clothes that I haven't tried on yet, really great sales, I ended up with 3 pairs of shorts, 2 shirts and a pair of capris. Whoopee, I love shopping sometimes. So that was my only exercise and I ate and ate all day. Well, I started out good and I even passed up the fast food places on my way home. But after lunch it was all downhill! I made Cincinnati chili and I love that stuff. My DH brought some packs of the seasoning stuff for it back from his sister's house in Tennessee when he was there since we can't get it here. I hadn't had any for the whole 3 1/2 years that we've been out here. And I think that was a great contributer to my weight gain when we lived in Cincinnati. There were chili restaurants all over the place back there. And if you know what I'm talking about, you know you just have to eat it over spaghetti with grated cheese on top. MMmmmm! And those little soup and chili crackers too. They call it a "3 way". I used to eat that maybe 3 times a week back then! So, anyway, I think this will be the last time I make it for a long while. It's just too tempting for me.

Okay, time to end this drivel. I just know that you're all doing great, as usual. Maybe I'll get here later to read the entries. So you all take care and have a great weekend. I'll see ya tomorrow!

I think it's awesome that you fought the naughty voice and got on the treadmill. I've been fighting the naughty voice all week in the a.m. so I can get up and do my stretches, but the voice always wins. :( You should be proud of what you accomplished. :)

Happy Friday, people! Not much to say today---didn't eat well yesterday yet again. No exercise this morning. But I'm going out to do a lot of shopping today so at least that's something more than sitting around on my butt. I'm just still not totally back on the wagon, I guess. But I promise to do lots of exercise all weekend. Okay, see ya tomorrow. Have a great day!!

Becca27 on 09/24/2004:
Happy shopping! We look forward to hearing all about your exercise!!

jerseygirl206 on 09/25/2004:
Hey, shopping counts! Walking, holding weight, standing. It all counts. ;)

Happy Thursday morning!! And it is happy here with me. I just finished doing 35 minutes on the treadmill and I got it up to 3.4 mph for a short time 3 times! I'm trying to work my way up slowly. And now---I'm tired! Yesterday was a complete disaster! Bad eating (that's over now for good) and no exercise. So I was glad to not get on the scale this morning. Oh, and I didn't have the stress test after all. I finally got around to filling out the paperwork they sent me last week and there was an instruction paper in there too. Well, it said not to take any beta-blockers within 24 hours of the test and I'd already taken one. So I called the office and had to make another appointment for next Tuesday! DUH!! That will teach me not to procrastinate! So I was lazy all day and even took a small nap. But today is another day and IT WILL be a better one. And I have an appointment with the doc for a complete physical this afternoon.

Okay, that's all for today. I'm sending a shout out for all our missing people here---CharlieAngel, Biscottibody, Jellybelly, MichelleP, Scruffy and anyone else who hasn't been here for awhile. I sure hope life is treating them good. So stay strong and I'll see ya tomorrow!

Well, confession time--no exercise this morning. I slept in an extra hour since I had a bad night of sleeping--or, not sleeping, I guess you'd say. And I feel so guilty. But I may get some time later to fit it in. The exercise, that is. And I do have the stress test later this afternoon. That counts for exercise, doesn't it?

I'm still not getting the eating part. Well, let's see, I do eat, I just eat way too much, heh! It could be worse but could be better. Lots better!

Okay, today will be a better day. I read all the entries yesterday and you are all doing so well. Just great! I'm going to catch up one of these days. Don't count me out yet! Hope you have another great day today! Oh, and I forgot to add---I'm trying a little experiment here--no getting on the scale until Monday. That may not seem like much to most of you but I'm an every-day-weigher, ya know. I want to see whether it will help me go down--or make me go up without me knowing it. We'll see.

legcramps on 09/22/2004:
Good luck today!

Becca27 on 09/22/2004:
We should throw out our scales together. Any form of exercise is better than none. Are you calculating points? Try to write them down. I do think it usually helps

nettyb40 on 09/22/2004:
Any exercise is still exercise. Stress test takes a lot out of you so I'd count it.

Have a good day.

jerseygirl206 on 09/23/2004:
Don't feel bad for not exercising first thing in the A.M. If you didn't have a sufficient amount of rest, it can't be wise to work out I'd think. If you ask me, a stress test counts as exercise. Scales are evil unless they're only in your life once a week. Have a great day.

Good morning, everyone! I just finished doing my 30 minute walk. I know, not that much but it's a start. I almost didn't do it. I shut off the alarm and rolled over to go back to sleep. But after 5 minutes I decided I'd better get up and get it over with. Heh!

Yesterday was an okay day. I could have done better on the food part though. Oh, well, today is another new day.

Well, I hope you're all doing great today. The sun is shining here and it should be in the 80's, I guess. I'm going to try to keep busy and out of the food. Take care and stay strong!

legcramps on 09/21/2004:
Great job on the exercise! 30 minutes is 30 minutes, don't feel bad about not putting in enough time. You should feel great because you DID exercise! Have a fun day today!

shellybelly on 09/21/2004:
Great job getting the motivation to get up and exercise! :-)

Becca27 on 09/21/2004:
another WW person! Yeah! You made a great choice this morning to get moving - just think of the extra points you get to eat today! I'm motivated to exercise because then I can eat more. Enjoy your beautiful day. It's gorgeous here, too.

TheMother on 09/21/2004:
You seem to be in good spirits today. Great job with the walking. That is my so-called exercise of choice. I am trying to take a 10-15 minute brisk walk at lunchtime. I only have 1/2 hour break and the other 1/2 I read the newspaper. The weather has been gorgeous in NJ the past couple of days. Should be this way the remainder of the week so it's perfect walking weather.

Have a GREAT Tuesday.


malh on 09/21/2004:
Don't you feel better saying you did 30 minutes then not doing it???? Next time it will be more and more. Thats a problem I find...keeping busy....if I do that I'm fine with keeping the food out of my mouth...its when I sit there in the kitchen and eat and eat....its like this tiny voice...says...duh, Mary....go get busy....Maybe that voice needs to get louder somedays.

Hello, my name is Soon2BThin and I'm a food-aholic. Ahem! I think I should change the name to "Maybe-one-of-these-years 2BThin" since I've been a member here for almost 4 1/2 years now. What do you think? So, it's Monday, September 20, 2004. It's the 264th day of the year, with 102 days left in this year. Are you ready? (I got this from CNN this morning) BTW, I got this while walking 30 minutes on the treadmill this morning. I have the TV on CNN so I can read the news while I listen to music on my Walkman.

Okay, I'm setting a new short term goal this morning. I am going to get to 155 by Thanksgiving. Between then and now, there are no vacations, no holidays and nothing to mess me up again. Halloween doesn't count for us, no one trick-or-treats way out in our neighborhood so I don't have to buy candy to have in the house. So I think this is a very possible goal to reach. I just have to keep in mind all the successful people on the DD so I will remember that it IS possible. It's really hard to keep coming back here as a failure and, if I think about all my failures, it makes it hard to keep going. So thanks for being there, all you successful people.

Okay, here's to a better day! I'm going to do this! Stay strong,people!

Becca27 on 09/20/2004:
Hi food-aholic - meet sugar-aholic. Thanks for the calendar stats. Your short term goal is a great one - you can definitely meet it. Isn't it great that there aren't any holidays to muck it up?? Halloween presents a problem here, but I've already offered to give my kids an early Xmas present if they'll chuck their candy. They can have the experience of going door to door and pick out their favorite stuff, but I want the rest OUT OF HERE. I don't buy my candy until Halloween Day - and even then I buy Mounds bars because they repulse me - no temptation at all to eat them. Problem solving is key!!! We'll find success one day at a time. Keep up the great work!

legcramps on 09/20/2004:
You'll do a great job! Get out there and whip some butt!

You know, coming back to DD at a higher weight or after being away for a few months doesn't mean you're a quitter! And it doesn't mean you're a failure either! These lives we have, they're not all that easy to live you know! Take that into account, and give yourself some credit for the steps that you're taking TODAY. You wouldn't get very far if you weren't taking those steps, no matter how many times you write down lists, no matter how many times you 'start fresh' - if you didn't, you wouldn't even be trying, would you? And that, I think, is far worse than not accomplishing a goal or two. Give it all you've got, and don't give up - there will always be struggles in life and the sooner you start overcoming the ones you're faced with now, the easier it will be to face the ones in your future!!! Good luck and take care today!

Well, we're back. Actually got back yesterday. B-I-L had some medical problems and we decided to come home early. My b-i-l has a brain tumor (7 years now, I think) and he's slowly going down hill lately, it seems. But we keep hoping for the best. My sister has found a doc in Canada that performed surgery on a woman with the same kind of tumor and he was able to remove it all and she's doing great. So they're trying to get this doc to operate on b-i-l, sending him his MRI and info the doc needs first. It sounds very promising and, like I said, we're all keeping our fingers crossed. Anyway, he had a couple of small seizures while we were gone so we thought it best to get back home. Which didn't really bother us, coming back early. And I really had a very good night's sleep last night in my own soft bed. The weather there was great and the 2 days we were up there we were able to fit in lots of activity. So we had a pretty good time anyway.

So how's it going on the weight-loss front? I somehow managed to lose 1.8 while gone even though I didn't change the weight here. I decided to only change it on Mondays. I didn't get in any real exercise but we kept really busy. And I'm kinda taking today off, doing laundry and such from the trip. Right now I'm ready for a little nap but here I am. So how is it going here for everyone? Guess I'll go check up now. Talk to you tomorrow.

Hello, people!! Well, it's Monday weigh-in! Of course, I've weighed myself every day this week so what's the big deal? And I'm up 1.8 from last Monday. Not good. Could be worse but we won't go there. I did get back into the exercise yesterday but didn't do any today. Except walk all over Super WalMart and I spent over an hour on my feet making potato salad and beans to take with us on vacation tomorrow. And I've been running around, getting things packed. Okay, I did have a McD's Big & Tasty and most of a medium fries for lunch so it wasn't a good day for me. That was only a couple of hours after a big breakfast. But I've hardly eaten anything since then (who could?!) except a few tastes of the beans and potato salad and some chicken rice soup.

Okay, I'm going to go read me some entries now. I'll talk to you when I get back and I can really get back on the wagon. Of course, I'll try not to be too bad while I'm gone too. And take lots of walks. Have a great week!!

Good morning, er, it's afternoon, isn't it?! Still feels like morning to me here. Having a good day so far, how are you doing? At least I've had some exercise this morning---30 minutes treadmill. That's more than what I have been doing lately. And I'm going to keep it up. This week we go up to the White Mtns. for a little vacation with sis and b-i-l. We leave Tuesday morning and come back on Friday. The weather should be cooler there than here, upper 70's in the day and upper 40's at night. I'm really looking forward to it. We'll do a little fishing and a lot of walking around. Should be good.

I haven't had any comments the last couple of days, are ya all out there? I know, I don't deserve any, I haven't been doing much commenting myself. I hope you're doing well. Okay, time for lunch, almost 1pm. I'll talk at ya later.

I don't know, I'm just feeling really bad right now about my progress, or lack thereof. It's not that I'm eating an awful lot of junk but I'm not exercising or doing much of anything. I'm so tired all the time. I used to do the exercise and feel so much better afterward but this past week, what little exercise I've done just leaves me feeling exhausted. And the weight is just creeping up and up. I just finished reading all the entries here and I'm feeling so left out of things. You are all doing so well and so many of you have already succeeded. Well, I'm going to just keep doing the best I can with what I've got, okay? I'm not going to exercise in the morning so maybe I can manage to get some badly needed house work done. And who knows, maybe I'll feel good enough after that to do some formal exercise too. Hey, I'm hoping for a better day. Keep up the good work, everyone, and have a great weekend.
