Hi everyone!

Thought I would start the September chat thread.

Hope you're all enjoying your long weekend! Anyone doing anything fun? I got to babysit for some friends and today we're having a friend or two over for lunch. Right now I'm being lazy and looking at my elliptical. The goal is to get on eventually, lol, and do 30 minutes.

Happy Labor Day!!

Hi Coffeeshopgirl,

It's great to see you! Good luck to you with all off the weight loss goals.

I still feel mentally like my head is spinning because I just moved and I have ankle arthroscopy surgery on Tuesday. I feel a bit overwhelmed and nervous but I am fortunate to have my family so supportive of me. I am tired and I have a lot on my mind.

Well, I will take things bit by bit, one thing at a time.

Take care everyone.

Amy

Hey everyone Joined the forums a few weeks ago but decided to properly start my journey today after weighing in at the heaviest I have ever been. I keep telling myself that I'll go to the gym before work but starting work at 5am makes it hard so am determined to go today after work.

Hope everyone is having a good week

Hello ladies.

I've had a really rough month but I wanted to stop in and let you know that I am thinking about all of you.

Lots of love to all.

Default Hey ...

Hi,

I noticed that this thread was pretty quiet, the monthly threads used to be more popular. I hope that everyone is doing well.

Tomorrow is the anniversary of a relative's death, it makes me sad. I know that they are happy in Heaven.

Reality is sinking in about my ankle surgery coming up next Wednesday. I am nervous and a bit scared but I trust my surgeon, I have a lot of respect for him, that is a very positive thing. I am going to have a family member spend the night with me the night before and caregivers will help afterwards. I am glad that this will be behind me.

Take care everyone.

Default absent!

so sorry I've been absent!! had to take on part of a co-workers responsibilites since late July and the months have just been a blur. Could not do my daily workouts and that has hit me hard, I was always a consistent exerciser. But the job ends this Sunday and then I can get back to my routine.

I have had some 'what is life about, what's it all worth' lately which is not good.

Seabiscuit how did the ankle surgery go?

HELLO to everyone else and I will try my best to get back here regularly!!

Hi Holly!

How are you doing? It's great to see you!

My ankle surgery was two weeks ago, wow does time fly! It was okay, but the day of surgery was frustrating with it taking seven sticks for an IV! I was very upset but I am glad that my Mom was with me. I went home with a nasty, horrific nurses aide and I will not use that home health agency or hospital again. Oh well, live and learn, right!

I am going to start working with a new therapist, it will take a few weeks until I am assigned to someone. I don't care for the director of outpatient services. She is not very warm or friendly and I don't agree with her on her position regarding the staff's excuses.

Well, take care, have a goodnight.

Hello everyone.


I haven't been keeping up in here like I should have either so don't feel bad.


My daughter has been home on Fall Break and is due to go back tomorrow. It is so hard for me to take her back. I need to get over this problem I have of not being able to let go of her. She is a young woman now and I need to stop crying every time she goes back. I just love her so much and she is my only child. Maybe it is only natural for this to be hard for me? I wish I could be like other parents and be just fine when dropping off their children. Does anyone have any sage advice for me?

Hey Ohio,

I hear you about your emotions. I get upset when I leave family, maybe I used to get more upset but it still is an issue for me. I try to take deep breaths and think of positive memories, sometimes it works, sometimes I just have to ride the wave of emotions. Good luck with that.

I am doing pretty well, I have recovered more from surgery. I have a bunch of medical issues, at times they can feel very trying.

Have a good night everyone!

Amy
