Welcome Back Delph and the Boysi!!!
So good to have you back girl! Hopefully you are sleeping in this morning, and catching up on your rest. I know the Hospital is not a place of rest!!!! Anywho, still praying for strength and wisdom for you, and health and happiness for the Boys! Love ya, chickie

LookingtobeHealthy- You are to hard on yourself....I don't think that is a bad pic on your avatar, and I love it when I get to put a face with a name. It helps me remember who is who a lot better! Yay! on your loss I must have missed it in one of your posts what surgery? when? Hopefully it is something easy. Hopefully, you can keep posting during your recovery!

Glutio- Just Tired? I was exhausted just reading your activities! Did you get a good nights rest last night. You know, You could always whack your husband in the head a couple of times "in your sleep":o and then blame it on your new sleeping pills! You might feel a whole lot better!

Blondie- I know you didn't specifically ask me, but I was gonna butt in on your question about "what do you eat in a day?" Well, it was really more along the lines of writing/logging in. Of course, there is always pen/paper, but I use the online diet journals I use "thedailyplate.com, I tried sparkpeople.com, and Fitday.com wasn't bad either. Delphi uses a different one, and I can't remember what it was called. They are all free to use/sign up. Most have lots of fun little graphs, and reports to help you through like calories over time, weight loss over time, and your measurements. You might want to check into those, to give yourself a way to track what is/isn't working. Good luck.

Good Morning Ladies

looking ~ Thank you and on the drop.

blondie ~ How many calories are you eating a day? My suggestion is to log your food, either at home or on one of these sites designed for it. Log your food for a week just to see what your intake is. The more data you have about your body, the better an understanding you will have then adjust things accordingly. Thanks for all the well wishes.

NSM ~ Thanks I'm on the fence. I was given nothing that would indicate that this would prolong his life or make it easier. Seems to me there are more "cons" than there are "pros".

Jacque
~ Thanks darling Looking good in those photos luv.

LE ~ Thanks for all the well wishes. Luv ya to girly.


As for me, I almost forgot what a good nights rest was. Granted I feel like poo this morning, perhaps because I slept too long. TOM has been around since Monday which didn't help much with my already emotionally strung self but lets hope he will get the heck out of here soon, I'm ready to start dropping the weight and get back to my routine. Gonna talk to our pediatrician today and discuss the Malacia of the airway and some suctioning equipment we need and hopefully I can do all this by phone. I am soo not taking Canaan anywhere soon, if I can help it.

So I'm hopeful that tomorrow I can get back on schedule, back to exercising and back to life in general. I mean I didn't even weigh this morning, until TOM's gone, I probably don't want to. At any rate, you ladies have an uber awesome day and I'll check back in later.

Lewis, so funny!!! My sleep doesn't appear to have been that great last night. All choppy and around 5 hours! Booooo!! I'm not sure if I'm up for good today, yet. I may try to lay down again until DH gets up for work and pray for another hours of sleepy time!

Delphi, I am so happy that Canaan and you are home where you belong. I'm also relieved to hear that you are going to research about the trach. I know you know it's about quality of life for Canaan, and you want to do all you can IF it's going to improve his quality of life. You're such a great mommy. You really are. And congrats on hitting ONEderland, sweetie! I'm glad you're getting back to your routine!

Lewis, I don't know if hot tea or cold tea are considered one over the other better for you. I do know that recent findings have shown that drinking tea piping hot can have bad effects in the long run on your throat and esophagus. The recommendation is just to give it a few minutes to cool some before you start drinking it. Makes sense!

Looking, I love your new avatar pic! And if that's not flattering, you must be a stunner in person! Congrats on the new decade! 239.9!!

Glutio, good job on all the housework!

NSM, yeah, my crockpot base is just a medium size one, so it works very well!

Mystical ~ Yes, that is very normal. I would suggest recording your weight daily for a month, just to become familiar with your daily fluctuations. That way when you are up a pound, you don't worry about it too much. It is very normal.

Jacqui ~ Exactly! That has always been my main concern. We have an appointment with the pediatrician around 1. I think we wants to discuss things with me and get him some meds. I think I'm gonna let them go ahead and scheduled surgery for the reflux, but I'm leaning towards no trach at the moment, but I see what the doc has to say today about it. Anywho, thanks a lot sweetie for all the support and prayers.

Jacque ~ Thanks.

I've just realised that 186 is not longer obese for me, not 188! Miscalculation! oh dear.
Ah well. It still fits within my july weight loss goal.
Anyway, I'm feeling good. I'm wearing denim!

Morning girls!
It feels like my arms are going to fall off this morning LOL. I added some cardio boxing to my routine and I am feeling it today (well, and yesterday ). That is not going to stop me from working out today though. I need to blow out some steam since the whole house hunting adventure is driving me nuts
On the positive side, I am starting to get urges to exercise to blow off steam instead of resorting to food. How cool is that? Now I just have to act on them :P

Blondie: What LE and Delphi said. Before starting to cut things down, it would be useful to just write down what you eat for a few days or a week to see where you can improve later.

Glutio: I am exhausted just from reading your post.

LTBH: Look at you go, I think you will be where you want to be for the surgery

LE: LOL at your comment for Glutio you are just too funny

Delphi: Hi Babe! I now want to congratulate you on Onderland. I know it didn't come the way you would've wanted to, but it came anyway. Hopefully TOM will be gone soon and you will feel a little better. Good luck with the pediatrician today, I hope he (she?) gives you a good insight of what is better for Canaan. Like Jacqui said, it's all about quality of life for him.

Jacqui: I hadn't thought about really hot tea being not so good for you, but it totally makes sense.

Mystical: Yeah, it's normal, our bodies are funny that way. If you are tracking your progress in a graph, you will see that despite the ups and downs, the trend will be a definite point downward.

Alrighty, that wasn't too bad, you can tell half of our girlies are away since it only took me like 20 minutes to catch up

I will be back later to chat some more. Have a great day!

Hey all, I am leaving this morning for the BFs family reunion. I'll be out the middle of no where with no real food options other than what is provided so I will just have to do the best I can. Hope you all have a great weekend!

I'm coming into it a little late but my goal is to permanently say goodbye to the 170s in July. My birthday is July 26th, and I'm hoping to get there by then, but it may be tough. I also want to start exercising a minimum of 30 mins a day. I've attributed the lack of movement on the scale to the lack of movement of my butt!

paperskin ~

LaurenA ~ Thanks sweetie.

Gekster ~ Good luck!

NSM ~ That is excellent news. When you get to that point you know you are over the hump and well on your way. And thanks for all the kind words.

Merose ~ Wow! Big milestone. You should be very proud of yourself dear. I know I am.

As for me, we just returned from the pediatrician. Have I mentioned before how much I love that man? He is awesome. There was no pressure and he sat down and talked to me for over an hour. We decided to try medication to control the acid in his stomach, another med to get rid of the contents in his stomach quicker and he is putting in the order for a suctioning device to use at home. Plus he extended the antibiotics. So we are gonna try Canaan on the new meds for a month and than reevaluate his condition then to determine if the trach is the next step if the meds don't work or at least decrease the inflammation of the vocal cords and his upper airway. So I am quite happy with that. There was no pressure and I feel like this is a better option. I'd feel better making a decision when we have exhausted all other options first..ya know? So ya for Canaan and me. No doctors for a whole month.

I am back to eating regularly. When I was at VCH, I was barely getting enough calories to sustain my body, not to mention adequate nutrition. I'm so glad it didn't fudge up my metabolism eating only 200-400 calories a day. Yikes! But the good thing was, even though I was emotionally distraught and stressed out, I didn't go to the food court and indulge. Not once. It never even crossed my mind to "feel better with food" ya know? I guess that's why I didn't eat a lot either. I wasn't gonna put that junk into my body...period. I just stayed hydrated and eat a Nutrigrain bar when I could stomach food. Then my buddy came down and sat with me all night Tuesday and he pretty much made me eat a six inch sub. Only after I saw the calorie content on the case did I say ok.

He is another positive out of this whole mess. He's coming over this weekend to. Anywho, I'm not smoking as much either. Since I have to go through so much just to smoke. I can't smoke anywhere in my house or car and when I go out to smoke I pretty much have to change my shirt and then put the clean, non smoke smelling shirt when I come back in. So, some good did come out of all of this and Canaan is home and happy again so I can't ask for more than that..eh?

Well I guess I'm caught up, and at least back on track for the next month, God willing Canaan does well. So let's do this ladies.
