hi all
i had to go out this morning and get my shoulder looked at. i've had some manipulation but it's still sore. i slept better last night but still have some catching up to do. foodwise i have fallen off the wagon. yday my eating was good today big pig out! oink. like Diane i need to back away from the food but once i've opened a pack of biscuits i find it hard to stop until they're all gone

Leslie - loose pants. oh i am jealous LOL. i don't think the scales are as important as the measurements and how you feel. have fun exercising. it has rained here today for the first time in weeks. you guys can have it. i prefer the sunshine LOL

hey wendy and diane. take care of yourselves and do something good for yourselves. a time out sounds good wendy. when you're overwhelmed it's hard to keep up with a diet so relaxing it a bit is good. just not as much as me and my packets of choc biscuits hehe




TESSA ~ thanks for your kind wishes. What type of counsellor are you seeing? How will she be helping you? and what sort of class do you do?

here;s a question. does anyone know why joints click? mine have become especially clicky. i've started taking fishoil caps but it doesn't seem to be helping. it's not painful but they seem to click all the time. any thoughts?

Sweet, I have no idea bout the joint click thing. My knees do when I do one machine a bit...hmmm? I am going to a therapist. I've had issues with anxiety for awhile now, but started really battleing with some depression this past year. I am trying to see if talking to someone will help. My brother said it really helped! I'm going to a hospital's behavioral clinic (if that is what you mean). As for how she is going to be helping me. I've just had a few experiences in the past where my feelings project to other people that fit the description of what happened to me (does that make sense). For instance, when I was a junior in highschool a couple of guys tried to get into my car (one guy got the passenger door open). I drove away before they could do anything. Now I'm paranoid when I drive alone. There are a few things like that. I think we are just going to talk things like that through. I have trust issues also. I hope you are having a better day then!

Wendy, I really hope you have a good night! Get some sleep, and pretty soon the weekend will be here and you can let it all out! lol Hang in there!

Diane, I hope you also have a nice night. Hope tomorrow goes better htan this past week!

Leslie, sorry about the scale. THat is great though if your close feel loser! I know you have been working out more, so gaining mussle will stop some of the 'scale weight loss.' SO, keep up the good work!


Well, I had a wonderful workout! Actually, a good week so far! I worked out on the lifts (my legs today) for about 1/2 (200 calories about). Then I did 20 minutes on the stairmaster (whohooo! 150 calories). Lastly, I went on the eliptical glider thing for 30 minutes (320 calories). So...I ddi well today

Eating wise, I think good. I had the bagel this morning, for lunch a shake and some grapes. For supper I had an apple turnover (not so good, but yummy), some stirfry (it was too bland), a beef braeto thing, and a glass of milk. I also just finished a slimfast snack bar.

So, I'm hoping to head to bed here in a bit. Going to do some reading, and a friend is coming over in a little bit.

Have a good night all!

hi again

i had a sleep for 2 hours (well 2 lots of 1 hour) and now feel slightly better altho i feel funny about food. nothing tastes good and i know i should eat a proper healthy dinner but instead i keep eating chocolate biscuits - and i'm not even enjoing them! i'm not even hungry. silly LOL

Tessa - therapy sounds good. CBT can be especially helpful for anxiety. I know what you mean about specific situations. I had a very frightening car accident where my car spun out of control and went off the road and through fences into a paddock in a gully. i kept having panic attacks while i was driving and was convinced every car was going to push me off the road, or the feeling of gravel under the wheel would trigger something. as i said before on the other thread the therapy with the best result is daily meditation. they tested monks who meditate for hours every day and found it rewires the brain so you react differently. if you can master meditation or even just sitting quietly and breathing fir a few mins each day it is worth doing it!

Hey jazy, glad to see you're doing well. Friday's are my dodgy day with regards eating. I'm trying to move on from the 'its weekend so I can eat what I like' mentality. Two weeks have gone by without too much falling off the wagon!

Sweet Pea - Your joints click because of air the moves as your joint moves. Not really anything to worry about. I have that as well as fairly stuffed knees that grate and grind when I move. This as a result of when I was studying after school and carried things that were too heavy on my back. My knees are out of alignment and are wearing away at the cartiladge. I found a really good supplement here that has herbs and things like tumeric in and it really helps. Not so good to already have oesteo-arthritis in your early 30's!!

Aside from the above, I'm doing well. Still feel like all I'm doing is eating, but my clothes seem looser today. WI is on Sunday am, so we'll have to wait until then.

Must go now and type as someone decided that I should work for my money!

Meg

hey jazy nice to see you hear and sounding upbeat. i think availability is a big thing. if something is there in front of you you will eat it. i often have to hide things from myself or ask other people to hide them so i can not see them and be tempted

thanks meg! i wondered what caused it. i also have dry eyes and mouth so thought it might all be related somehow? lack of fluid or something. i drink 2-3 litres of water everyday (that's a lot) and still feel thirsty. i will ask my doc about it. maybe it is linked to being prediabetic or it could be a side effect of meds. she says it isn't but according to the safety sheet i read thirst is a poss side effect

i shouted myself to a nice skirt yday for dancing and going nice places. i have been stingy and not buying any clothes as i wanted to wait until i lost weight but i decided i'm sick of looking frumpy so i bought a new pair of jeans and the skirt. i thought if i felt better about how i looked it might help me feel better about myself and then make it easier to diet.

also i found out i can get a couple of pairs of shoes stretched. since i've put on weight my feet have swollen so i don't wear mynice shoes. it sounded like a cheaper option and also it removes guilt. i hate the feeling of owning so much stuff i can't fit into

oh no - you have to work for your money. how rude LOL. they should just be pleased to have your sunny face in their office.

off to the doc tmrw to talk to her about my sleep, nightmares and meds. will see how that goes

has anyone here made dietary changes and found that it has improved their mood, reduced anxiety or stress? i really would like to hear some success stories

Sweet Pea - (I had a friend in the UK that I called that) Have you had your sugar tested? The thirst is usually a big sign of diabetes, but you don't seem to be craving sweets, so maybe not... I would suggest getting one of the blood sugar measuring devices so that you can keep track of it yourself. My dad had type 2, and there is so much that is affected and the doctors never seem to tell you about! We only found out after he died that a diabetic doesn't have the same symptoms for a heart attack that a healthy (?) person has!! From my mom's side of the family we get an almost exagerated form of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) but it doesn't mean that we can't pick up diabetes either!! (Really didn't score well on the family health side - heart, cholesterol and sugar problems from both sides!!!)

My work is now finished and as it's nearly lunch, I'll get my book out and read!!

i am prediabetic so i am at risk of diabetes. my last test 2 mths ago was still at the prediabetic stage not full blown diabetes

and yes i do crave sweets. i live for sweets. all types of sugars. i love fruits, alcohol (esp wine), chocolate, sweets etc etc. i am good at making sure i have veges as well and good quality protein and nuts and seeds but i still have an overbalance of sugar. and quite frankly unless i was on once of those fat farms that remove it from you i have difficulty resisting

the thirst isn't due to lack of saliva i just always feel thirsty. often the back of my throat feels dry so it may be in part related to my sinuses. i actually adore liquids like smoothies, milk shakes, juices etc as well as my water. i eat a lot of fudge because it melts in my mouth like a liquid. so yes tmrw i want to talk to her again about it and also about my other meds for sleep and anxiety

it's neat that you're in south africa because it means there is someone else awake same hours as me!!! and silverfern of course because she is a fellow kiwi. good to have someone to chat to when all the americans have gone to bed

i should go to bed now 11.30pm and i have already taken my pill!

what book are you reading meg. fiction?

Good morning andrea, wendy, meg, tessa, sweet pea, diane, anyone else I don't know everyones name yet....

Tessa, your pic looks good. How tall are you? I want to get to about 150 eventually.

No weight loss this week, it is bumming me out....tell me it is because I grew some muscle...haha....

I didn't exercise last night, I watched American Idol instead. My eating was good yesterday, but I need to hit the exercise again today...sigh....It is my least favorite thing.

Pray that we get some rain here in central texas!!!!

Leslie, I am about 5'5 and 157 lbs right now. I'm not quite sure what my goal weight is right now, but I'm going to try to make it to 145 and see where I am at. Thank you! I used to be 220 pounds! I feel pretty good now.

Jaz, hey! I was wondering about you! lol...school. is going pretty good. I have a pretty easy semester so far, but my clinicals havn't started yet (when I spend time at the elementary school). Well, the 'date' with the guy awhile back went nice. When we were down there we spent a lot of time together. We went to Kareoke and hung out afterwords for awhile. Next day we played three games of pool, I went to a cocktail party with him, and we went out for oysters with my dad. Sense I've been back we've talked three times on the phone. Right now he is in Arizon...well, should have gotten back yesterday. If I don't hear from him before Monday or Tuesday of next week I'll give him a call. He said he would call me though. I wish he wasn't in SC though...grrr!

Sweet, that would be scary! I've never been in a car accident (knock on wood). Some things that have happened with people affected me that way too. I feel especially bad because of that, because I know most of them didn't do anything. I will check out that anxiety thread! Thanks!

Meg, your WI will go great! That is so great that you are feeling the results. Don't get discouraged quite yet if you don't see results! Keep up the good work!


Well, I had a hard time getting up this morning. I went to bed semi-early, and planned to get up around 9:00, but ended up sleeping until 10:30. I could have kept sleeping then too, but I made myself get up. I am planning on going to go workout in about an hour. I have my independent study today at 3:00, but that is all I have today!

Right now I'm working on some wheate cerial. I'll talk to you girls later!
