Talking August 2009 - Come Chatter With Us!

Hi all! Happy Saturday! And oh my goodness - August already!!

Hope - any workout is better than none - I can now walk three miles, still slow (for me) but it's getting me moving

Leenie - things are healing really well, and I have the swelling mostly under control - it's odd how I'll swell as the day goes on, and takes some getting used to! That said - I have defined abs I would NEVER have had on my own, no matter how hard I worked at it!! I still can't have a really good stretch, but generally I am happy... though as the water weight comes off, and I slim down again, my boobs seem enormous!

Nothing of news here - just trying to keep busy, and take care of myself. I hope you are all enjoying some sunshine, wherever you are!

Heather

Okay! Hi Everybody! This is actually attempt number two this morning! My last post was eaten in cyberland! I know I have been away for awhile, I have been checking in a bit here and there but haven't had the time to really be involved. I am glad to see the familiar faces still around and welcome to all the newbies!!!

My weightloss has actually been non existent...I actually had to up my ticker by a pound but hey, I haven't been getting my workouts, my dogwalking has dropped off to almost nothing and I have been dealing with foot and knee problems so I figure that that was a small price to pay really. I had also slipped into the sugar zone (addiction) and am currently going through detox again. Day 3 today. Yesterday was tough...headachey, achey, felt like my body was lead, and raging stomachache! Yeah, sugar isn't a drug... Bull!

Also, our friend that also has brain cancer (my DH has it for those of you who don't know) passed away, and that shocked and shook me for awhile, brought up all the fear that I had dealt with before. I am delving deeply into meditation and self analysis and I have made great strides in improving my positive energy. Believe it or not, The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan is being immensely helpful!!! And I am using his methods to handle my dogwalking as well.

Anyway! I just wanted to check in, tell everyone that I have missed you all and am glad to see so many still hanging in there.

luv luv everybody!!!

Raven so glad you checked in. I've wondered how things were going. Sorry to hear about your friend. That must be really tough on you. I admire your coping efforts. Feeling good in the midst of tragedy takes effort and you seem to really be putting in the effort. Also congrats on stopping the weight gain at one pound. I wish I had done that 80 pounds ago!

Speaking of weight gain, I ate too much again today. I've been snacking at night again. I was getting away with a handful of berries and I was satisfied but now I'm all out searching for one thing after another. It sucks.

I'm not sure of the side effects of Pristiq... but the first thing I would do is call my doctor and tell him/her you are sleeping so much. Maybe he can lower the dosage?

Good morning all!

MY APARTMENT IS GUEST FREE! Woohoo! So now maybe this 3 week streak of being horribly unhealthy will go away and I can get back to normal. Really - I've been so bad these past couple of weeks. I've been stressed too so the will power I have needed to decline the suggestion to order pizza hasn't been there to help. I think I need to loose the "1 for every 5lbs" sunshine in my profile. Boo!

Have a great day. Super busy here, but I'll catch up and read through all posts from the past few days later on this afternoon when I *hopefully* get a few spare minutes.

Welcome everybody!

Harris, I don't know. I haven't been on pristiq but I think Leenie is right, call your dr and let him know what's going on.

I was off today and slept away most of it. I hate when I do that. I got nothing done around the house and it needs it badly. I did buy the books I need for the one class and lab I'm taking this fall, they were nearly $300!! If I was taking a full load I can't imagine what it would have cost. It's just crazy. I'm still eating too much. Why am I sabotaging myself?
