So...she's back to ordering take-out and I just make myself what I want. I tried.

I worry about her because she's morbidly obese with a lot of health issues. I don't always agree with how she chooses to handle things, but it's her life, not mine.

My siblings and I are rotating who's around to help her and giving each other a chance to sneak off every day for a workout or just some quiet time.
That's hard. Maybe you can help her a little by giving her "some" veggies without overwhelming her system too much? But in the end, you can only offer your help, you can't make her accept it. I know it because my mom's the same way, not with food, but with other stuff.

Praying for you...

BTW can I join you here? I don't feel like a featherweight yet, but I am at exactly 140.0 and I told myself when I got into the 130's I'd scope out some feathers threads.

I still have 25 to go because my goal weight is 115 (I'm 5'2", so 115 is right in the middle of my normal BMI range).

It is heart braking to see our loved ones eat poorly. I am sure my DH suffered when I was not being kind to my body. He tried, but it all has to come from within.

Hugs to you!

I use my FitBit every day. I usually shoot for 8000 steps on my two or three busiest days (running errands with a lot of driving) and 10000 steps on my four or five exercise days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday). I usually end up around 12000 on my walking/running days but I am lucky if I get to 6000 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays. On those days I am going, going, going from 6 AM to 9:30 PM but a huge chunk of that is sitting in classes and driving my kids all over town, so I literally cannot exercise. As often as possible on Wednesdays I walk/run to the church for my ladies' bible study. That's two miles so at least it's something.

I am at 8000 steps for the day I still have either aerobic class or power walking session on the treadmill left. I am leaning towards the treadmill because I sweat more doing it. I should easy get upto 15000-17000 steps for today

Good Morning,

Lurking a bit, looking for inspiration. I "live" on the Beck Thread but thought I'd come visiting since my push is to get out of the 130's.

Doing Beck, Calorie Counting with 2 Fast Days [500 cal], light weights and Elliptical Tech Desk at work for some exercise. Weigh-In Day is Saturday mornings.

Have a Great Day!

I ended up walking on the treadmill last night. Took 18000 steps, Yay! Scale was down by a pound brining me back to normal bmi. Now if I just could get below 140 by the end of this month.
Today I think I will walk on treadmill again and lift some weights.

I have been running from doctor appointment to another doctor appointment for the kids all day long. Work out will be late night again. The hardest part is not to get too comfortable and settle in for the evening. Last few nights I have forced myself to go, and I am proud of it.

Hi all, just moved my weight down another lb. Hurray!! And I don't even particularly deserve it as I've had an average week food-wise due to working interstate and staying in hotels etc.

I'm a fitbit user too, and normally average about 14000-1700 steps, but that's because of my trekking (can do 35000+ in a day easily, if I go out on a weekend), and I normally walk the dog twice a day and normally do some sort of other exercise. On office days away from home I'm woeful though and only get to around 5000 steps!

Anyway, it's good to be back and i'll try to check in here more often (or in the April thread lol).

Hope you get your siggy back!

I have had a really great week! Mostly low stress, aside from almost dying in what would have been a horrible car wreck on the freeway yesterday. For some unknown reason most of my classes/plans/obligations have been canceled this week. It has been awesome! I was able to get some gardening and housework done, as well as managed to sit on the sofa and watch some Netflix with DD, who has been home sick from school. I seriously NEVER watch TV so I was totally enjoying having a laid back week for a change. The home stretch toward summer is going to be frantic, so I have been enjoying the laid-back-ness of this week for all it's worth.

Discovered a SUPERB tv series to watch, called "The Returned" on Netflix. It's a French tv show so you have to read the subtitles but it's sooo worth it if you like the horror genre. Creepiest. show. ever. Awesome plotlines, great writing, mind-boggling twists, excellent acting.

I posted pics of myself on a fitness forum...got mixed responses. Its too bad that the more negative responses affected me more than I would like. Ah well, ya know what? this is me. This is my bare no photoshop just me BUTT. (NSFW wearing th0ng) I used to have the saggiest one that I had ever seen due to weight loss damage - all int he bum not the belly, so any sort of change from that I'm good with.

Happy Friday!

Sum38-thank you for the welcome!

angie82much: Congrats on the pound down!

shr1: I read a sample of "The Returned" book on my Kindle-very interesting.

pixell
: You look great. The"negatives" are out of their minds.

Today is a Fasting Day for me, 500 cal. Tomorrow is weigh-in day. I've been on plan all week and hoping for a good one.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks for the support, guys. It's been a long week, but good overall and I'm glad I got a chance to spend time with my mom. I know she enjoys the company and it was a nice change of routine for me too. I felt bad that my cooking made her ill, but she and everyone else said my meals tasted good so I guess that was a success. I'm typically a terrible cook.

I haven't had access to my scale so no idea what the numbers are, but my clothes are fitting fine so if there was a gain, it can't be anything major.

Anyway, I'm getting ready to drive back home tomorrow (6 hours, ugh) so I'll wish you all a wonderful rest of the weekend and see you in April!
