So I'm back from my mom's funeral and my cousin's mother-in-law passed away the day of the funeral and after returning home I found out my brother-in-law had to be rushed to emergency surgery for a flesh eating bacteria in his stomach. Boy , when it rains, it pores.I haven't been able to lose any weight but for now I am trying to get back on the exercise wagon and take it one day at a time. I need a vacation ,just to clear my head. Stayed somewhat focused on what I ate while I was gone till it was my birthday. I had the most scrumptuous lunch/ dinner ( we split it up) but I knew not to even put it on my food journal. Out of the 8 days I was gone I only slipped one day. Even though I am still in morning for the loss of my mom, I think this all scarred me and made me think of my own life and what I am doing with it. Back to work and rearing to go. Thanks to ALl who said prayers and sent support for me & my family.View Thread
I thought about posting on my food journal for the lunch and dinner( I split the meal up) from my birthday. Maybe it won't be that much over the allotted calories for the day. I didn't know you could get the nutritional info for restaurants on-line. This is fantastic. I will post this info so I don't throw off my weekly stats. Right now I have made a training routine for my exercises so I can start up this week and work on this more closely. Thanks for all your help and support.View Thread
I have been trying to lose weight for about four weeks. I have been tracking my fitness activities and my eating in the WEBMD journals they have. I have stayed at or below the caloric profile but only two times did I not stay below the tracker.. I move around but have some restrictions because I ran out of Oxygen and have to wait for the order to be read by the Doctor before the respiratory area can release my day-time oxygen to me. I have a lot of trouble breathing when I go out, so I am careful. I do things inside to make up for not being out. I need help or suggestions on how to improve things, so I can start to lose the weight and not get discouraged and give up. Giving up is not an option.Especially after my mother just died yesterday of this dreaded disease.View Thread
I just found out after hearing of the death of my mother on Friday, that my husband has been writing to some girl as old as our children. He said and I quote" I Just Wish I was 25yrs Younger and I would......." I am so sick I can't eat without being nauseous and with my Barretts ( Esophasus Pre-cancer) I can't throw up unless my body is in distress. Man when you are in the refiners fire, they really mean "you are tested". I don't want to be tested anymore. I just want to take a break. Well enough pitty party. It's planning time for me to move out. I don't need another idiot that doesn't want me or thinks I am too high maintenance. This is what a guy says just before he starts looking for a replacement.I 'm not going to take it. It's time for ME. I'm going to need some support with this weight loss, please people. I need to add years to my life or I won't even live to the age my mom did.View Thread
Thank you for all the good advice. I am able to hook up directly to the Oxygen Extractor machine, so I think I will be alright to do a little at a time and see how far I can go.I bought resistance bands before I started having more breathing problems, so these will help immensely.Please have a great weekend. I may not be on the site for a few days till I get back from the funeral, so don't panicI will come back on as soon as I can. I have no support system here of back home with my family. Thanks again.View Thread
