Weight: 161.6

Hi, there! I'm back again. I meant to get here yesterday and start fresh on the 1st but was lazy, I guess. So here I am, starting fresh. I'm going to weigh every day now as long as I can stand it, heh. And one of my New Year's resolutions is to eat less carbs, more protein. And a LOT less sugar. No more of these sugar binges I have had maybe once a week. I must realize that I'm diabetic and just should not do that. It's a serious thing.

So, Friday was a good day. I went to the gym and worked out even though I was debating on staying home and taking another day off. I'm glad I didn't do that. We spent New Year's Eve watching the Twilight Zone marathon on the Sci-Fi channel and flipping back to Regis, but we didn't make it to the count down. Went to bed at 11. I was still awake at midnight though and our neighborhood was pretty quiet. Slept in some on Saturday but went for a walk with DH in the afternoon. The weather was great yesterday, sunny and 60 degrees, but is cloudy today and a small chance of rain. I'm thinking of taking the day off from exercise today, my left leg is hurting some, but I will eat right. I did exercise 5 days of the last 7 though. DH is gone to my brother's house to play--oops, work on the boat and trailer. Anyway, that's usually my trigger to go to McD's for breakfast but I'm proud to say I fought it off. Really, I realize the breakfast I made was even better and better for me. And, come to think of it, I haven't been to McD's for weeks now. Yay, me!!

So that's what's going on with me. How are you all faring so far this year? I've been reading a diet blog lately that is really interesting, if you like that kind of thing. It's thefatdiaries.com She had WLS a couple of years ago and writes all about it and how she's doing since. Anyway that's what I read to pass the time. I'm also reading Diabetes For Dummies from the library. There's so much I don't know about it.

Okay, hope you're having a good Sunday. I'll see ya tomorrow.

163 this morning!! I don't know what's happening. I'm eating right and exercising till I drop. The only thing I can think of is the menopause. All the hormone problems could be holding me up. I will talk to gyn doc on Wednesday for my yearly check-up. Oh, goodie!

But with all the problems in the rest of the world, mine seem very small, right? I'll just keep plugging away. What else can we do?

Okay, here's what's been happening with me lately--- Tuesday, had a nice walk outside. I walked for 50 minutes. The weather was great, warm and sunny. My eating was good too. Then at 7 that night Mom called and was feeling really weird. She could hardly talk so I told her to call 911. By the time I got over to her house, she was feeling better and there were 2 ambulances there with 5 or 6 paramedics standing around her. But they suggested she go to the ER anyway, to get checked over so they took her. The ER was crowded and there were people on stretchers in the hall. After about 45 minutes they got her into a room. Long story short, we were there until 1:30am and all was fine. No stroke, no heart attack. They thought it could be an inner ear thing so she will see her doc on Monday. I didn't get to bed until after 2am and didn't get up until 11:30. So I didn't feel like going to the gym and just skipped it that day. Even took a nap. Only ate 2 meals that day so eating was good. Thursday---eating was good and DH and I took a 50 minute walk around the neighborhood. So you see, no reason for my weight to be up. I'm pretty aggravated this morning and just want to go back to bed and hide under the covers for the whole day. But what good would that do? So I guess I'll go on to the gym later. Can't give up now. But I'm feeling like my whole life is just focused on weight-loss. I've been working hard for 5 weeks now with no results. We don't go out to eat any more, we just don't go anywhere, really. I go to the gym, the grocery store and that's about it. 7 more weeks until Maui and that's causing me a lot of stress too. If I don't lose a considerable amount of weight by then, I won't be able to fit in most of my clothes and will look like crap. Mind you, I'm not going to let this ruin my vacation though. But it won't be as much fun, you know? So you see, my whole focus is on the weightloss. I feel like I'm wasting my life right now.

Okay, sorry about the ranting there. Tomorrow starts a whole new year. I wish you all Happy New Year. Have a safe celebration. I'll see ya tomorrow.

These fluctuations are perfectly normal but maddening! Sometimes you can figure out that it's water weight because of either salty food or adding too much salt. At other times it doesn't make any sense at all. Just stick to your plan and your weight will self-regulate.

KatieBoBatie on 01/01/2005:
Sometimes the diet gods are cruel and we hit nasty plateaus, for days, weeks, months. I was stuck at 183 pounds for two months, it was maddening. But I just kept at it, didn't change a thing, and eventually, it worked. I don't wonder if it's some sort of test to see how bad a person wants to lose weight? I'm sure you want it bad enough, so don't give up, keep going, and I promise, the scale will move down for you, you just have to keep trying. Happy new year. ~Katie

Good morning! Beautiful morning here. Sun is shining but we expect rain late tonight and tomorrow. I think I may go for a nice walk later this morning. I did go work out at the gym yesterday, 80 minutes, but the eating was not too good. I mean, I kinda pigged out. But I'm back on it today and will do a lot better. After the first of the year, I plan on weighing every day and posting it here. Maybe that will help me more. I know it's not about the weight but living healthier but that's the measurement I use to keep track. I know, Maria, that you may see more results with measuring yourself and I may try that too. I can feel a difference in my stomach already. So I need to measure myself asap.

Okay, go out there and have a great day. Stay strong and it will happen. See ya tomorrow.

Maria7 on 12/28/2004:
You are an inspiration to go to the gym and work out...I used to go very regularly...but my sister stopped going and and before that, one of my friends that was going got a job as a substitute teacher and she stopped going...so.... I lost my motivation to go...oh...I went...but I didn't stay long and I was not into doing the exercises...so I quit going...but now...maybe I'll start back....

Wow, all that work for only a pound loss!! Phooey! Oh, well, onward and downward! Can't give up. There's less than 8 weeks until Maui.

So I hope you've all recovered from the big day. Here's what I've been doing---Friday, went to the gym and worked 80 minutes. Christmas Eve was at Mom's house for the big dinner. I didn't do too badly, just ate a little but I did have 4 cookies and a small piece of pie. Christmas Day DH, #3 son and I went out for a 50 minute walk around the neighborhood. It was beautiful weather, about 65 degrees and not a cloud in the whole sky. Yesterday wasn't such a good day. I got lazy and didn't do any exercise at all but the eating wasn't too bad. Still only a one pound loss for the week. I had been checking the weight every day this week and was up and down every day. I really expected a bigger loss for the week. I had exercised 6 out of 7 days last week. Oh, well!

Okay, I'll bet everyone is back on the wagon today. Just one more big holiday to go. I hope you had a nice Christmas and things are going well. Today is gym day so I'll be going there. Have a great Monday and I'll see ya tomorrow.

Maria7 on 12/27/2004:
Hey..you're doing well! Hey down 1 is better than up 1, right???? Anyway, muscle weighs more than fat and you're building muscle with all the exercise....sooooooo...get a tape measure and go by that...bet you see more results since you are working out regularly.

Things are going well, weight-wise. I've been losing a little something everyday the last few days. I was surprised to be down some this morning and thought it would surely go up a little since I didn't exercise at all yesterday. But I did eat really well and was busy for a couple of hours making potato salad, baked beans and a cheese ball for tonight. Yummm! I plan on just eating the things I really like and not eating too much of them. Mom has Christmas cookies too, I love those! But I'm going to the gym pretty soon. I found out they are open till 6 today. I'm so glad. That should help keep the gain from not being so bad.

Okay, this is it--the day before the big day! I wish you all the best holiday ever. I hope you're all with the ones you love and are safe and warm. And MAYBE I'll see ya tomorrow.

Maria7 on 12/26/2004:
How's the weather your way? It's sure COLD here! We had an ice storm last night and this morning.

Okay, there was a significant drop in the weight this morning but I'm only changing it here on Mondays until after the first of the year. Yep, I'm back to weighing every day!

Today has been great so far. I went to the doc to have blood drawn for the blood sugar test at 9 and then went to the MALL!! Eek! But it wasn't bad at 9:30 when I got there. I had a coupon for $5 off at Sear's and $10 off at J. C. Penney's!! Woohoo, that will get me to buy something every time! Hahaha! They know me! Bought some more winter pajamas, a cardigan sweater, and a sweat shirt at Sear's and a nice pair of earrings at Penney's. The earrings were originally $30, 50% off, so I ended up paying only 5 something with tax. Now that's the kind of shopping I LOVE!! Nice sales at Sear's too. Then I went to the gym and worked out for 85 minutes! Great workout! Drove home and just about collapsed for the rest of the day. Oh, and on the way home, I stopped at Circle K for my lottery numbers. I've just started doing that recently. I'm gonna win some day, ya know?!

Okay, I plan on getting up early again tomorrow to head for the grocery store for all the stuff I need to make potato salad, baked beans and maybe a couple of cheese balls for Christmas Eve at my Mom's. She's making a ham. Oh, and I forgot to tell you, brother-in-law got out of the hospital yesterday and is continuing with his radiation treatments. I haven't seen him yet since that first night in the hospital so don't know exactly how he's doing. Hope to see them on Christmas Eve.

So I guess that's it for today. I just finished reading all your entries so I know you're all doing great! It's a hard time of the year to stick with it but we'll do the best we can, right? Then it's back on the wagon! I'll see ya tomorrow!

Okay, here's what's been going on for me here---let's see, yesterday I went to the gym and worked out for --ta-da--95 minutes. That includes 2 1/2 miles on the track, woohoo! I know someone here will appreciate that, no one around here does. You know how that goes. And my eating has been great since the fiasco on Saturday. Today I did 30 minutes on the treadmill, walking, and then did 30 minutes on the bike. So as of now, things are going great for me. And I feel incredible! I know, I know, you probably are saying to yourself, "well, how long will it last this time?" I'm sure that's what DH is thinking and I kinda wonder myself. But I'm just keeping in mind that trip to Maui and I really don't want to go looking like I do now. Really! I'm sure I won't lose as much as I'd like to by then but I want to lose as much as I can. Like this morning, I weighed again since I'd had such a good day yesterday, but I was up four tenths of a pound so that just about ruined my whole day. But I got over it and did a little work around here and then did my workout on the treadmill and bike. That REALLY helped my mood! Oh, and #3 son (the one who lives with us) brought home a huge pumpkin pie from WalMart yesterday and I haven't even smelled it, haha! I just keep telling myself it probably isn't any good anyway, no matter how good it looks. So DH and #3 son can have it all. It's almost gone now anyway.

So tomorrow it's off to the gym again for another good workout. First I have to go have blood drawn at 9 and then I have to eat a little something since I have to fast for the blood test. Then it's on to the gym. Since the doc's is halfway to the gym I won't return home for breakfast and I will either stop somewhere for breakfast (a nice low-calorie breakfast) or take something with me, a hard boiled egg or something. Anyway, tomorrow should be another good day.

I haven't had any comments for awhile so I don't know if anyone is reading this. I'm going to go check up on you all now. Have a good "hump day"!

TheMother on 12/22/2004:
You did indeed have a terrific day yesterday. CONGRATS!!!! I admire people who go to the gym. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those people. I was using our treadmill at home but after a couple of weeks, I was getting severe pain in my right knee so I stopped. I do take a brisk 10 minute walk at lunchtime. I figure every little bit helps. WalMart bakery has such good stuff at reasonable prices. Thank God we don't have super Wal-Marts here in NJ - the local grocery stores won't permit them but when I go to visit my brother in VA, we go to his Wal-Mart. Love their bakery stuff!!!! Good job in passing up the pumpkin pie!!!!

Have a GREAT OP day!


Maria7 on 12/22/2004:
YES! You're being read! Wow, what a lot of exercise! Well, good for you! And good for you on the eating front, too, looks like you'll soon be ready for the trip to Maui!

My VERY favorite pie is pumpkin pie! YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It kind of p'd me off this morning when I saw that weight but I'm over it now and I'm going to do even better this week. I only had 2 bad days out of 7 and I exercised real hard for 5 of the days, but still had a small gain. I had all those thoughts---why even try, it's not fair, I worked really hard, I'm going to give up! But all that went away and I'm feeling better. Darn scale!! Phooey!

So the bil is doing better but still in the hospital. We don't know yet when he will get out. Haven't heard any news yet today.

Oh, I did exercise yesterday and had a great day of eating right, within my points. I drove about 2 miles from our house and walked on a bike and walking trail that was paved so was nice walking. The sun was shining and it was 65 degrees in the shade. I walked 25 minutes one way on the trail and then came back. But I didn't notice that it would be mostly uphill coming back. And the sun was right in my face. But a very good workout anyway. I think I'll be doing that more often. After I was done, I got in the car and cranked up the AC and ended up giving myself an icecream headache, heh. My right sinus' ached for the rest of the day!

Okay, I'm heading out to the gym for another good workout. I'll come back in later to check up on you guys. I hope you're all doing great. Let's get out there and MOVE! See ya tomorrow.

Good morning! I'm still plodding away here. Things are going well so far but I'm a little worried about the weekend. That's the hardest time, I think. Although, I do have lots of work to get done around here to keep me busy. It's just hard getting started on it. Yesterday I did get to the gym after my appointment and did just fine. I didn't starve to death, haha! So I didn't get my lunch until 2:30 but it was okay. I worked out for an hour and just cut my walking time in half, I did only one mile but I did all the weight lifting machines that I usually do.

We had bad news yesterday afternoon---bil is in the hospital and not doing well at all. You know, he's the one with the brain tumor that was operated on recently. They did a CT scan and the tumor has grown back to the size it was before the surgery. After all that and all the weeks of radiation it looks like he's worse than ever. But we're hoping for the best. Please pray for him and my sister. I can't imagine what she's going through.

Okay, going to start the day here. Time for some breakfast and then, I don't know what. Just sitting by the phone waiting for some news. You all have a good Saturday.

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm doing pretty well here. Had to really fight off the hungries yesterday. I just wanted to eat and eat but I didn't! And I did do 30 minutes on my recumbant bike. So that was good. Today is gym day. I will fit it in after my 11:30 appointment for an ultrasound. They need to check on that cyst I have on an ovary. So I'm taking my gym stuff with me so I can change at the gym. I probably won't do as much as Wednesday since it will be lunch time and we all know I never skip a meal, haha! So I should be really hungry by the time I get home.

Okay, so far, so good. I'll see ya all tomorrow!
