In Pain, Getting Heavier, Lost...

Sunday, September 13, 2015

Many of you know I've been on & off again on SP. Know what? It doesn't work just b/c you remember to track your water & read a few articles! Not even positive comments on friends' feeds do it! Huh! Go figure! ;) So, my problems are a few things (none of which are excuses): 1. I have several chronic health issues (pain types, fatigue, etc) that make me not want to be active. A lot of activity in one day can set me back several more. I have a lot on my daily list of "have tos", so I have to save energy for those. 2. Sometimes I feel so big that I'll never go back & forth between the same 2-3 lbs. 3. I take 42+ pills a day & some cause weight gain, or at the least make weight loss harder. 4. I feel like I don't have time or something more important should be done. Yes, I spend a lot of time in dr offices, w/insurance co, driving to appts, etc. & I know nothing is more important than me. I help others by feeling well. I've been told this for years. I know what it takes to lose weight. 3500 cals=1 lb (remember that from a HS pe class). For some reason, I can't get motivated. I love fall b/c you don't sweat as much. I'll be doing yard work soon b/c of fall cleanup. I just don't have friends near me (online, I do) to motivate me. My hubbies is worse off than me. He belongs to WW at Work, but were pretty much donating the money at this point. He was using their app, but that lasted about 2 weeks. So I would have to be the motivator in our family. Actually, my awesome 15 yo son (who is 6' & 122 lbs. 28" waist) watches us, but uses guilt. Hate when he's smarter than us! So, sorry for the downer blog. Didn't mean for it to be that way! If anyone has bits of wisdom, please leave a comment or inbox me. Thanks in advance! You're an awesome community of people who never cease to amaze me!!

    emoticon I know it is hard especially with the pain and everything you have going on but try to motivate yourself with some exercise , even just walking in place several times a day, doing some of the chair exercises on SP, and heating foods that are good for you . if you get things within your body fixed you might be able to give up some of the meds you are on.

    do not stop trying. this is to make you a better and healthier you

    I don't think this was a "downer blog"; I think you were just sharing some of the things that have been going on in your life- which we all have. What an awesome son!!! and to have your husband and son with you to share your roller coaster ride -ups & downs of life is a tremendous blessing!!! Your glass is more than half full!!
