Freida did you get your new teeth? I bet you are glad to get that out of the way. Sometimes it is great to have a day of just r&r. Glad to have a buddy to TT. How are you today? Good here!

I go get fitted for my new teeth in an hour. Then it will take some time to adjust after they are made.
Well It keeps me from eating. I ate too much for a lap band patient and threw up last, after all the chest pain. I can't cheat even if I want to. emoticon

Emma it is great that you have acknowledged that. That is a very big step. I have been having trouble, with my weight gain. Others have noticed it and mentioned it. I am working hard in June to lose more! I know I will. What else is new Emma and Freida?

I'm having trouble with self-care. My energy level is in the crapper. I think the fires in the everglades are killing my sinuses. On the good side we've had some rain so if we could get some nice wind. My sinuses might give me a break. My system is so delicate. There's so much I want to do. I can't sleep properly so forward progress is not being made. Maybe I just need help.

I gained 3 lbs. during the depression but now that I'm better. I'll lose them. In the hospital we found out my depakote wasn't working. I was breaking them in half so they get past my band. Dumb move! emoticon

Doing well here. Emma I fell into a slump, and I need to get on Sparks everyday. Gained sooo much. I haven't been hard on myself enough. I lost over 20 pounds, when I first joined Sparks. I want to be there for the summer! Anyway, have a great day!

I don't celebrate Easter. It was not in the early Christian church. It was added in the great apostasy that Jesus said was coming. Google Easter for its origins.

I walked 6 miles yesterday. It was beautiful weather. Today it is crumby. I finally got my livingroom painted, which is great! The color looks beautiful! I am so pleased! I have to put knick knacks away and hang paintings now-about a one hour job! Enjoying life, and I will see what today brings!

Let's both exercise today. It's a big ask for me as I am nursing a VERY bad headache. But I'll put on my sneakers and go out and maybe you can too? There's nothing like starting to get us back on track.

So glad to hear that Freida! Reebeegal Freida's right and for me walking helps alot too. As you know, everyone's different and your psychiatrist can give you ideas that work for you too! Been feeling good for awhile. Very busy, which I have enjoyed. Time for r&r today! Have a great day!

I'm down...I can't seem to get back into the healthy lifestyle kick! I feel bad, yet at the same time don't seem to care enough. I need a boost. Any suggestions?

Glad to hear you're doing well Therese and I sure do hope your knees get better Freida!

Take care all.

Freida I am soo glad that your knees are feeling better. I don't know much about your condition. Does it help to strengthen them, by walking on flat ground?
Not too much is new. Doing well, with my bipolar illness. I am not gaining right now, which is great! I have a busy few days of exercise. Alot of walking, which I love! Have yourselves a great day!

No answers yet but my knees are feeling better. My husband took to a flat site to walk I figured it was all this up and down getting to my knees. We live on the side of a mountain.

The running around and the exercise hasn't done the trick. I have started to be more serious about my weight, by spending more time with Sparks. Exactly as I did in the beginning. I really need to to lose some weight and have a healthy lifestyle. So, I feel like I am definately doing the right thing, by working my program tightly.

CHAUNCY that's great that your clothes are looser. Some of mine are too. And, it feels like a victory! I walked 4 miles. It felt great. In my other team, a virtual walk is available. And, I will be joining in with it. More later!

Sometimes the only way we can tell our weight is moving down is by our clothes. I am wearing a blouse I haven't worn in years. Be patient what you are doing will move the scale sooner or later. Meds.
do slow down weight loss but it's better than the alternative. emoticon emoticon

I have been doing much better on my diet. With all the work we have been doing around the house for remodeling, and now cleaning up after. My oldest boy coming to visit tomorrow. We are really rushing around to get most of it done. Lots of exercise.
With my back and hubby's health we have to take breaks, many breaks, or we would have been done by now.
For some reason (I know it is the meds) I have not lost or gained a pound. That is so depressing. Last night I had a half of pork steak, baked, on a drip pan, I took the bone part. And one small corn cob with a glass of iced tea with stevia in it for sweetener. I had 5 pretzel nuggets for snack later. Cereal for breakfast, and a half of sandwich of turkey pastrami, on half slice of deli sourdough sliced bread, and brown mustard. Of course I have tea with every meal and in between too.
Now eating like that how can I not be losing weight? I don't understand it. I have made sure we have been portioning meals. Even if hubby groans.
I am so happy everyone is doing good or at least on the right path.
The only piece of clothing loose on me is my bra. It is so old that when I bought a new one I had to buy it three sizes bigger. emoticon .
Actually My jeans and shorts and some of my shirts are getting looser. I can now wear a 2X tee that I couldn't wear before. It used to be 3X to 5X. So I suppose something is going on there.

Thanks for listening.

Cindy

Your meds. will make you gain weight but I guarantee
McDonald's will add more. Try sodium and cholesterol enough to kill a cow with coronary disease. I used to be a manager there. As soon as you enter the store you are being manipulated. You think you want something, but those thoughts are being put in your head. If you have to eat at McDonald's get a small hamburger. Ask for something left off so they have to cook it fresh. You are better off with a ice cream cone that fries. Low fat and 150 calories. I care about you not McDonald's they just want money. emoticon

Yeah, I'm not really logging either. It's a bad lack of habit for me. I exercised at the gym two times last week, yet haven't at all this week. I'm being so inconsistent. I lost weight last week, but I'm not sure that's going to be true this week. I know I can do this. I need a kick in the behind! lol

Hi REEBEEGAAL and EMMA. I am starting to gain more weight. I saw my psychiatrist today. I am doing well. My meds cause weight gain. Got to take these though. Exercise works for me. Come on Spring...I can walk more then! Have a great day friends!

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm still around. Just having a hard time with the whole "Being serious about my weight" thing. I can't seem to get back on the right track. I'm trying, little by little now. I'm exercising more and cutting back, but not yet tracking like I should and getting fruits and veggies in isn't happening. Hopefully I can change things around soon because my pdoc said that if I don't start losing weight, she's going to change my meds. Thing is, I really like the "mix" I'm on right now and don't want to change at all. I'm pretty sure it's not the meds causing the weight too. I eat really unhealthily and in large quantities. Maybe they contribute a bit, but my mental health has been more stable than pretty much ever. I hope I can get her to understand. I wish I could use that as my motivation to lose weight. I wish I knew what was wrong with me, lol.

Hope all are doing well. Take care. emoticon
