Happy New Year--my wish is that we all make the most of it. Life certainly will suck (at times)--keep your chin up and try to persevere!

I'm satisfied with baby steps regarding my food tracking. I didn't do Fitday, but I have written down my food since last Wednesday. I'll definitely start counting this coming Wednesday.

I'm going to do a mini circuit workout today--I'm trying to minimize/avoid any soreness because of some things coming up later this week, so a full workout will have to wait.

I know what you mean. If I don't make an entry it's just so easy to slack off. The last time I didn't check in for something like 2 yrs. and almost regained all of the weight I had lost! Counting calories has always kept me in line. I highly recommend it.

Yes, iniactivity kills and I better get going! I am posting more again. Have to to keep focused. It helps!

I'm up 2 pounds on my weigh-in today--not too shocking under the circumstances. Sleep still disturbed, but better; lacking wt trng, thus I'm postponing the BF measurement for awhile; trying to just get regular daily exercise at the moment.

I know this'll just make most of you laugh, but our temps haven't been out of the 40s (F) for several weeks, so I guess I just need to get used to it. We're having our third round of snow since Fall. (It was in the 80s on Christmas last year.) Last week's snow would have qualified as a blizzard if we had had much that stuck to the ground for the first 3 or 4 hours of the snow. Despite having only about an inch on the ground, there were drifts of 3 or 4 feet in some places. Highly unusual--at least as unusual as the dust storm from a few years back!

For my weekly weigh-in on Tuesday I'm down another pound. Still didn't get in the wt trng. Will try again today--seriously. I'll put up theTwelve Days of Christmas Parody after midnight.

Stuff going on healthwise has me focused (for the most part) and that's what I'm owing my success to so far. I don't have all the answers yet, but for the first time in about a month-and-a-half I can go to sleep and feel like I'm going to actually wake up. It's complicated right now, but I'm unraveling the knot step-by-step. Trying to focus on the old "one day at a time," though I'm not a natural at that mentality.

Speaking of knots, I started a crochet project and that's a great thing to get my mind off of some things. Writing in my journal helps as well.

HI Biscotti: I agree with you, weight gain has a lot in common with more frequent hotflashes in my case, too. I don't remember having them as often when I ws fitter a year ago. I have no idea if hormonal inbalances have anything to do with having extra fat in one's body but it's worth a thought - thanks for bringing it up. Wow, you are doing very well, 1.5 loss in one week is awesome!

Hi Biscotti,

Thank God I only have one bad knee! It's been acting up for the last 5 wks: swollen, stiff,hard to walk when I get up from a chair. It's difficult to get the right balance to walk because it's rather wobbly. After a few tentative steps I'm okay. In sum, this kind of situation does not encourage exercise! That's part of the reason for the slowness in re- ducing.

I see the rheumotologist every 3 mos.-next appt. is the middle of January. The knee is bad enough to go earlier, but if I do I can't get the cortisone shot; my drug of choice! You can only have one every 3 mos.

Methyl Trexate if basically a cancer drug but it's also used for arthritis patients. I just don't like the idea of using such a drug.

I have a very high tolerance for pain which I don't seem to have. It amazes my doctor. He said based on the x-rays and my history I am a prime candidate for knee replacement! But since pain is not an issue he wouldn't recommend one.

After all I've heard and the misery my ex has gone through, it will never happen.

I like your change of goal idea and might do the same. That's what I did when I restarted my diet plan in June. "Think small, accomplish, do it again." It all adds up.

Changing goals is a great idea, keeps your motivation level high. :)

For a Sunday weigh-in I was down 2.5 pounds. I weighed in yesterday and I'm down an additional 2 pounds. I'm sure it's mostly water, but I also haven't had my usual appetite lately. And to be honest I have drastically curtailed my nighttime eating. In fact when I eat this new way I'm much less hungry first thing in the morning than if I ate before bedtime.

Didn't do BF again, below is from 11.15.

I totally agree with you about inactivity. I was fine a few years ago as long as I was swimming a mile a day and doing yoga 6-7 times a week. Was I firm and feeling good! Then the Biltmore raised its rates, the water was too cold for me in Nov. and that was the end of my success story. You know, I even used to go to the gym there and use most of the machines, .

Exercise really helped me a lot. I can't imagine doing any right now with my bum arthritic knee swollen and acting up. And I just had it drained the middle of October. I hope it's not the medicine I'm taking not being effective any more because the next one would be methyl trexate. I don't like that idea at all.

Anyway, congrats on dropping the few pounds. I always feel energized when that happens.

Happy Thanksgiving! Though it's so much like any other day--excluding the family angst should you be so lucky to spend it with them. I find it appalling that stores will be whoring for shoppers, who will mostly just be buying more crap they simply don't need. Not to mention their employees not getting the day off. Sad! Fortunately I remember when things were different--that makes me old and narrow-minded--hey, I'll wear it proudly!

For my weekly weigh-in this past Tuesday I'm down 2.5 pounds. The above excessive driving is probably the reason my weight is down. I forget how much Fitday counts calories burned while driving, but if I add that to my sleep deprivation for those days, it's easy to see why I'm down a few pounds. I'm just now feeling caught up on sleep and it's been a struggle.

Note to self: Not getting good and regular exercise is not good for my sleep patterns!

Below is my BF--from 2 Sundays ago. I will be doing this on Tuesdays, though not this past Tuesday.

Inspirational as always, biscotti! I couldn't have said it best about the Black Friday shopping blitz. OMGosh, the advertisments -- ridiculous. Some stores were open from 5p-9p on Thanksgiving Day!

Let's get back on track together!


geevee on 11/28/2009:
Hi Biscotti - Just wanted to say how glad I was to find you still on DD's. I'm back again after almost reaching my original FAT weight. I felt too fat to come back then so I started in earnest again and over 6 mos. lost 11 lbs. The clincher was fitting into a pair or jeans my daughter gave me for Xmas last year which I couldn't get into until 2 days ago! That was enough incentive to face reality.

And so the quest continues.

I did get my Circuit Workout done on Thursday. It had been 29 days since the last one and that one was 24 days since the last one--not a great track record.

I'm having some challenges healthwise. I would like to go into detail, but until I know a little more, I'll resist. Sometimes everything piles up and eventually it has to come tumbling down, that's pretty much what I think happened--it's a huge wake-up call if nothing else.

I'm up a half-pound on my weigh-in. Below is my BF--I will be doing this each Tuesday after today. The BF and W:H ratio are both down ever so slightly.
