I sure hope you're feeling better Keet and I hope that you're dog is OK Kali! It's hard when our furry friends aren't feeling well.
Beautiful heart Judy!
I intend to have a successful eating day and I know how to do that. I have water aerobics today and that always helps. I have a hair appointment too...cut and color...and I love doing something for myself.
So sorry you're down Keet. I understand, but it's temporary. I know that's easy to say...not so easy to feel.
We got some bad news yesterday. Due to problems with the title and a piece of property adjoining, the house that we bought earlier this month is no longer available for the price that we were paying. The cost went up $20k and we can't afford it. So another one fell through. This is the fourth one since April 1 when we came back from Florida. We are in our second rental since that time trying to find a home to buy. It's so frustrating not having a place to call home! It's hard to continue eating well when I'm used to using food to feel better.
I know I need to keep my chin up but sometimes that's easier said than done.
I hope that you all have a happy and successful day.
Feeling good today but I am still hoping for some sunshine. The rain is getting old.
I finally got under my 286 plateau where I have been for ten days. Crushed it and am down to 284.2.
Sorry you're hurting Tweety sweetie. I was on Gabapentin a few years ago after three months in bed from hurting my back. It was also supposed to help with my bipolar. I don't know if it helped or if it was the physical therapy and time to heal, but something worked. Unfortunately, a month after my back healed I had my car accident.
The worst thing about the Gabapentin is the withdrawal. My doctor didn't tell me to slowly stop taking it so I went cold turkey. I had weeks of night sweats, chills and anxiety. I'm not sure about GABA though since I've never tried it. I would recommend talking to your doctor about it first.
Congratulations on the walk! We were in Florida over the winter and it was humid then...I can't imagine what it's like in June.
I weigh myself every morning at the same time wearing the same thing. This keeps me accountable for my eating. I do fluctuate and plateau a bit, but if I go up I always know why. Either I ate the wrong kinds of foods, didn't move enough or didn't drink enough water.
Congratulations on continuing your great loss! Making those food changes is a great way to lose weight. It's wonderful that you are keeping the exercising at the front of your mind...hopefully you'll start finding the time and motivation to get going. I understand how hard it is.
Thank you so much for the smiles this morning Kim...your posts are a delight to read and much appreciated! Your day makes mine seem like a walk in the park.
How can I possibly have gained 1.2 pounds in one day? I know it's from my dinner. We impulsively went out to a Mexican restaurant last night and I was an eating maniac. I felt terrible and full afterwards. Why can't I anticipate that feeling and nip it in the bud by watching it? I know that with practice comes improvement but I want it now (imagine the girl from Willy Wonka when you read that).
Another rainy day. With so much of Minnesota flooding I wonder how much more this poor state can handle. All of the lakes in my county are no wake zones now. It's ridiculous.
Sorry I'm so crabby this morning, but thank you all for being the rays of sunshine in my life! I need you.
