Good morning Everyone! It's a new day. It may not be sunny, but it's a chance to start again with renewed resolve. I have stagnated for a while and been content to take rest. My weight has seemed to stabilize at 204.6 for many many weeks and it is ridiculous that I can't find the will to kick myself over the 200 line. I have somebody above to help me now and I really want to find the strength to do this. I've gotten sloppy with my food. I've had way too much of the good things that I taught myself to eat this year and I need to pay attention to portion control and do whatever exercise I can. I know this sounds like " the same old song but with a different beat since you've been gone", but bear with me and I'll get there.

Judy, Kathy! Good morning!

I am at a new low weight 220.8. This despite eating unwisely last night. I have been in greater pain than usual the past two days because of my right arm. 5 years ago, I had a right mastectomy and lymphectomy. The doctors warned me to take special care of my right arm: no sunburn, no blood pressure cuffs, no blood drawn or IVs. And I was to call a doctor if it ever began to swell up. I have done all that. But recently it has begun a general aching. It is larger around than the left arm, but the skin is not taut. I am conscious of the pain in bed and it wakes me during the night. I am due a visit with my oncologist on July 2 and plan on reviewing all this. But walking yesterday and the day before put it in overdrive. I came home from the walk yesterday and spent the rest of the day in bed just so my arm wouldn't be hanging from my shoulder. So read my food entries and exercize entries with this in mind.

.5 C. oatmeal
1 C. raspberries
.5 t cinnamon

walked 31 min. burned 143 calories.

Kathy,

Do it for Chris. Would setting up your next day's menu the night before help? I find that if I don't have to THINK about what to eat I can avoid temptation. So I set up my menu while still full right after dinner.

Think: what would Spock do?

Giggles,
Sharon

ausgram replied to SharonNVirginia's response:
Good for you Sharon. wow, I want to be like that, "a new low weight" Yes!
Kathy, yes, we need to, both of us, get a move on and start lowering our stats. Kim will be starting our challenge pretty soon and we want to be ready for it. Right?

I weighed this morning - up to 189. But I think it won't be that for long.
For breakfast I have 22 cherries and a cup of joe.
Hoping to eat better and drink more water.

San Diego, please, don't move there. The humidity about killed me. I should weigh 150 the way I perspired (sweated). It was awful. Glad to be home with no humidity. (well, very little). Had a super great time with my grandson.
AusGram -SW - 194; CW -186; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

Baby steps, to a healthy lifestyle change. When you change your thoughts you will then change your weight. Getting healthy is about progress, not perfection.

Aw, Jeez, I wish I'd have read this before I posted that funny about your walk yesterday under Fri foods/exercise. sigh.... open mouth insert foot... I suffer from terminal "hoof in mouth" A LOT. sorry

I didn't realize you were a cancer survivor also. I hadn't read that before on you, or missed its prior posting.... So sorry that you had to go through that. Judy too and anyone else out there. You are more inspirational because of your will to live and your will to fight than most of us could ever aspire to be.

many huggs and hopes your way

Kathy, you are suffering anxiety about "going over the edge". I had this too. SO close to the 200 mark and then ONE-DERLAND! yet something holds you back. I had a plateau almost exactly like yours last May. After losing the first 50 it just SAT there. This is what I ended up doing...

I found that there are certain "grooves" that my weight settles into. From looking back, I have found that these wear spots in my weight are almost exactly where my weight had settled for at least a year's time over my life.

Like 252 was for 3 years, 230(my first plateau) I'd had been at for about 5 years, 206-203 I weighed this for about 2 years..... and so on. The longer my weight was at that point, the harder to push through the groove.

Add in some cardio.... it doesn't have to be too much. Try that video for the 4 min tabata and then the seated Zumba over and above what other stuff you do on a daily basis.

Don't cut calories, just add some serious cardio.

That 4 min tabata will certainly help if you do it daily and it might just be the ticket off your plateau.

Hi Kim I got that a little wrong it is pinkie and friends Pinkie is a pink bus that we used to board in our imaginations every time we saw the doc or had radiation,, all the members would be on that bus and we would have the imaginary party and pinkie would rock us all home . while I was getting radiation every day summer of 2007 I could comfort myself knowing I had all my pals with me in spirit ...It sure helped at the time..

In situations like that, Judy, anything that helps you through is worth it's weight in gold. I wish noone had to go through it, and am sorry for you gals that have.
But then again, some would say that noone knows the extent of their strength of will and determination of spirit without these personal hardships to try them.
You have gone through a trial of fire and come out on the other side.
