Here we go...following Maggie's lead on the decluttering thread, I think we'll use this one for June, July and August..see how we all do with so many outdoor activities, etc. Have fun and post your goals and how and when you meet them, as you feel the need/desire! Yippee for summer!

Oh... I just cluttered up the BS with another June thread!!

MUST get back to my yoga this month... I've been out of it for over 8 weeks now and I can feel it...

My goal this month is to finally break that 15stone mark, but that seems to have been my goal since Christmas... ho hum.

I really daren't get weighed tonight, and I have only myself to blame! However, as I am babyminding until just before the meeting, I may not get there....

I have less than 3 weeks to tone up a little before a family wedding, or it's a pair of spanx for me!

Tonight I'll be walking the 2 miles to the sports centre doing an hours body attack class which is so much fun and hard work then I'll jog the 2 miles home. I can really tell the difference all the exercise is making now. I've got just over a year to meet my goal of dropping that last dress size but hope to make it by September for a friends wedding.

Went to weigh in - stayed same, thank God! This is probably due to the lack of food and fluid I'd had, being as I was dealing all day with a five month old baby that only slept in the morning!

Just had a massive salad.

Did some walking, the most in several days, yesterday, when I took Morgan to a movie. I did better than I thought I might...kept my pulse ox up, so that is an improvement!

I will be doing more, today, for another doctor's visit. May even get some qi gong in, for the first time in about two months!

Oh, and my weigh-in is tomorrow, but I did a sneak peek and it looks as though I've dumped three pounds, so of which I am sure was water weight, but I'll take it!

Well something has happened.. I am a mere 2lb from breaking through that 15stone ceiling... 1 to get there and 1 to go through it... so here's hoping that a week sticking strictly to the Plan (well, mostly) will see it happen.

I am finally back on track with my points. Didn't really lose anything this past week. I still need to do more movement, but that will come after I've rested a bit and built up my reserves. Doc said we messed up a bunch of levels, so we're working on getting me back to what passes for "normal.":-)

You are allowed treats Liz!

Did a 2 mile walk yesterday morning, an hour of yoga and a 2 mile jog home. Did alot of walking around Colchester Medieval Fayre yesterday and met up with a group of friends....laughed lots...must have burned some calories. Had confirmed what we already knew that cosmetic surgery can make you look worse than before. Best to keep up the hard work in the gym and healthy eating.

Tonight I've got the 2 mile walk an hours body attack class and 2 mile jog home.

I went to yoga class tonight and because the class was small, the instructor gave lots of assists, pulling and coaxing our bodies to stretch more, do more, give more. In bow pose (Dhanurasana), she pulled my legs down towards the ground and brought me into the highest dhanurasana that I've ever experienced. Then she said she was going to let go of me and she wanted me to hold it AND I DID. She said, OMG Michelle, that's amazing!!!!!! It felt INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

Hi Maeve,

   Just trying to have some fun, you know? After almost a lifetime of not enjoying any kind of physical activity, this is FUN! I love bendy stuff (and getting deeper into a pose feels like a big accomplishment sometimes!) and being in the water so kayaking and yoga are right up my alley. Tomorrow I am supposed to go to the gym with my yoga teacher and another yoga addict to add in some serious weight training...not too sure about that but I'm going to give it a try!

Keep in mind what you really want for yourself, and it WILL happen.

I didn't weigh at all last week. Coming down with something and too dragged to get to the Y, not that they want you when you're sick.

I'd like to think being sick drops my appetite, but the truth is, our local grocery outlet had Ghirardelli chocolates for half of list price. One box I gave away; one box WAS here "for emergencies," and it's almost gone.

feeling very mopy. hope it's just the cold.

If only I could aspire to feeling 'a bit achey'... last night's choir rehearsal was more exhausting than a 2hr workout! 'Completely knackered' is more like it today, so much so that I'm seriously considering a trip down to the local ER!

However, I've had little appetite recently (apart from the chocolate) so I've eaten less.. hopefully that will show at the weigh-in tonight, should I be able to drag my poor, exhausted body up the road.

I'm hapy to say I was 179 at the Y.

It is the first time I have been below 180 in 12 years.

I'm not sure why such a large weight drop since the last weigh in, but I guess it has been 2 weeks, and maybe losing a lot of water weight.

I'm just getting over a bad cold (hence very bad on workouts)and that must make a difference, tho' as Kat once noted, not a good way to go.

Anyway, it IS something to be happy about.

My endo said last week I could go off my insulin shots as my numbers remained good, and that was one of my goals, so it's a happy happy.

Another half pound gone, so now 14.10 1/2... still under 15stones which is a good thing! Seems the meds I'm on are surpressing my appetite and the enforced resting means I'm sleeping more, obviously going to work is bad for me!

Only another pound to go and I'll've lost a stone and a half (21lbs) in just under a year. Not exactly hitting my targets in a hurry, but at least it is now going in the right direction! Blood test results should be in next week so I'll see what difference if any, it's made to the overall health, and whether the troublesome liver has been sorted.

Thanks, Michelle...you and MAG are inspiring, so that helps, believe me. Another thing, my ex, who is still 6'2" and well-kept, was over the other day. When we were young and stupid, he used to tell me I looked "short and dumpy" when I was 5'2" and 115 lbs! One of the reasons I got rid of him.

Now, we are both so much wiser and kinder to one another - good friends. So, he was over to visit and we were talking about my efforts to lose weight, etc. Again, he pledged his support of whatever I may need to help me reach those goals and, in fact, said "we" will do what needs to be done to get me there. He is retired on disability and so has the time which my Rog does not, to really give some time to helping me and I am grateful.

Did 4 mile walk this morning before the sun got too hot. Only pushing single buggy with George as Harry and Amelia had the morning with their nana so I could go to the doctors.

Doctor was really positive. I was weighed and he was impressed with my efforts and weight loss. So far I have lost 4 stone since having the twins. I can't believe it! He has recommended losing another stone to stone and a half. I'm no longer classed as obese, just over weight. It feels great to not have the obese label anymore. Doctor has changed my meds for my PCOS, still on the metformin but given me a better pill. I've got a referal to the hospital for laser hair removal which I'm still impressed I can have on the NHS.

Don't worry about the hot dogs; it's important that they did not taste that good. It is something to remember the enxt time the craving for that food comes; remember the not-tasting-good.

That worked with one of my major binge foods which I will not mention in order not to set off anyone's craving ...

I was bad today.

\the guy who treats with pizza was at work today and the slices were smal, so I told myself I could have one small piece.

By the time we got out of there I had had considerably more.

It is a good reminder to myself that I can't start.

Once in a great while I will have a thin crust small Pizza Hut cheese pizza. ON WW, each slice is only 2 points, so I can have 2-3 slices without breaking the bank. Also, Michelle, there are some really good soy dogs on the market, now. They even sell them at the regular markets. You do have to watch the salt, but they aren't as much as regular hot dogs, I don't think and they are much healthier for you.

I did a 20 minute walk pushing a heavy cart with a big O2 bottle in it, today. I was going to do more, but Rog told me to stop.

I tried doing something new yesterday and wound up with an atrial fibrillation (first time ever!) and visiting the ER for a couple of hours! It was a combo of chemicals still being out of whack a bit, too much salt in one meal, and too much on-my-own activity with Morgan. I am fine and the bloodwork, etc. all came up normal, so we've just adjusted a med. and things are fine. BUT, I am reminded, once again, ALL things in MODERATION and take it SLOW!*bg*

I did lose 1.6 lbs this past week, too. Found that out at the doc's on Tuesday just before an old lady had a heart attack and ploughed into the wall by the weight machine with her car, breaking a water pipe to the whole building which spewed in my doc's exam room. It's been an exciting week!

Hi, folks. I posted this in the "gardening" thread, but I thought I'd repeat it here for those that might not see it.

"Last Friday, my friend & I went to see the new documentary movie Food, Inc (there's a link in the gardening thread). It's enough to make you want to run right out and buy canning jars to preserve your own food. It started me thinking about what we ate when I was a kid: a roast on Sunday & leftovers during the week, dessert also was a Sunday-only thing (not at every meal)."

There were some graphic parts, but worth seeing. None of it came as a surprise, because I'd heard most of those things before. But, when you see it all strung together like that, it's no wonder we're getting fatter. We all deserve a round of applause for overcoming the media blitz that tries to stuff food into us every minute of our waking lives.

As a result, I'm trying to delay gratification on some things. I'll postpone an iced-mocha drink until the weekend, and then order a "small" instead of a "medium". Little things that enable me to take back control. I cooked oatmeal for breakfast. Tonight I'm making homemade soup, with a lot less salt. I'm not expecting to lose weight, but I hope to eat healthier.

I postpone stuff too Maryanne. My latest thing is coffee from McDonalds. I know...not very exciting but I really (REALLY) like their regular coffee. I buy it, go to my meeting and it's usually cool enough to drink by the time the meeting is over. I have coffee at home so this really shouldn't be a big deal but I just like thiers BETTER!

No activity per say for today unless you count waiting on a husband who is down with a miserable cold. Poor guy. I hate when he's sick (I don't mind waiting on him, I just don't like to see him hurting).

I am planning a kayak outing for my Weight Watcher friends, some who have never been in kayak....so far I'm up to 24 people and counting! I am SOOO excited to be able to share this with them. It wasn't but a few years ago when I thought I was *too fat* to even try kayaking.....I thought I'd try it after I lost 50 pounds or so...and then I thought about it for a minute and decided, "What the hell am I waiting for?" And that was it for me. I walked in a store, told them what I was after, they took me out and the rest is history. Why wait to pursue things that make you happy until you are a certain size. PHOOEY! Do it now! Enjoy yourself NOW!!!!

XOXOXOXO

it is a compelling documantary about what's wrong with our (food) system.

If you have read Michael Pollen's book(s) a lot of it is NOT news, but his interviews combined with what the industry has done to the small organic farmer plus what Monsanto has done to bully folks plusthe corn subsidies and consequent cheap corn having such far flung effects as putting all the Mexican corn farmers out of business, it is enough to put you off all grocery stories.

I stopped by Thundering Hooves and bought a pound of their $5 hamburger -- I can't afford anything else they sell -- just as a gesture of support.

Hey...me too with the sleeplessness. What's with that? Tonight, however, I am up late because I was doing something that interested me and I've lost track of time. I planned out ALL my meals and snacks for the week including the points. Now if I can just stick to it. I usually plan day by day because when I make these longer term menus I have a dilemma. I look at the menu and decide I don't want that...I want something else. I guess that makes me pretty damn fortunate that I have that option, right? Well, for the next 7 days, I am going to commit to this menu. I made it so it's reasonable and I shouldn't be hungry. We'll see.

Saw a new doc who immediately put me on Lunesta; seemed surptised it hadn't been tried -- already sleeping better.

175 at the Y yesterday. It must be the no-salt. Otherwise I'd actually be a bit worried.

The week before I had given up salt until after the endo appointment; otherwise she wants to put me on yet another med, for high blood pressure. Then I said to myself, self, says I, maybe if salt raises your blood sugar that many points, it is not good for you. Hence: switched from salted nuts to not salted nuts (nuts make up a significant part of my diet), and very little salting of anything else, inclding scramled eggs.

A good idea to cut down on the salt.. you can always add salt, but you can't take it out again once you've added it. If you're finding your food a little bland, try adding fennel or dill to your scrambled eggs, or some mixed herbs.

You may want to review your nut intake too - some of them are notoriously fatty, especially cashews.

We cut out additional salt years ago and went to sea salt. My doc recently said I could have a teaspoon of it per day, but that seems like too much to my taste buds. I still crave it in certain foods which I will not name so as not to temp myself or anyone else. I have had a miserable time sticking to points this week. I've just started my new week and have already used some of my extra one, though I am able to add a tiny bit of exercise again for the first time in month, each day. When I don't feel really well I want food that is comforting. I've found what really triggers it is not being able to get out on my own. I will be able to, again, soon, but it is getting tiresome not to be able to.

Back to the salt, it really angers me when I see foods claim to be all organic and healthy choices, etc. then if oyu look at the sodium it is sky-high. They really need to be made to be more truthful; some of them are really UNhealthy and most folk are so used to salt on their palates, they don't even know. Rog has been making a delicious homemade tomato sauce for goulash and spaghetti, no salt added and of course we do soups that way, too. But, even the shrimp we get and the frozen, skinless, boneless chicken fillets still have salt in them! Ah, well...

As a former cook/waitress, it really REALLY annoys me when people sprinkle salt willy nilly on their food before they've even tasted it. I often used to think I should just give them a plate full of salt and see if they put salt on that. Now I appreciate that people have different tastes and that what I might find salty, someone else would find bland, but they could at least TRY the damn stuff before smothering it in sodium!

And don't get me started on the giant penis replacement distributing black pepper that you get in Italian joints....

Fought the crowds at 3 different markets yesterday gathering groceries and supplies for our party tomorrow...that has to count for something...and I did it on 2 hours sleep too!

I don't know what's up with this but unless I have some help from AdvilPM lately. Nothing in particular is on my mind so I don't know what's keeping me up. I hate taking sleeping meds....I always end up doing stuff that I don't remember (writing emails, posting, talking on the phone, etc). For the longest time I wouldn't take any at all because my husband tells me I get up, leave the bedroom and come right back in...not a big deal but we had a loft with no railing...dangerous to be sleep walking out there.

Anyway...wonder if being awake all this time adds up the activity points? LOL

Hi Catherine,

   So she doesn't follow a specific type of yoga like Birkram, Kundalini or Kripalu (all of which work different parts of the body, just in different ways....like Birkram is hot yoga, Kundalini is more breathy, Kriaplu is compassionate...although sometimes I wonder about that compassion while in up-boat..LOL). Just curious. I am SO addicted to yoga that it isn't funny.

I continue with a few minutes of the pedal exerciser most evenings. Did my qi gong twice this week. Today, I pushed the cart and did an intensive 25 minutes at the grocery store. I try to do it as fast as possible without getting uncomfortable. Having something to push helps me stay steady and trudge on. I also walked about another ten minutes this morning. What little muscle i had went south over the past three months. It is a long and slow climb up, but I'm definitely improving.

Of course everyone tended to gather in the kitchen, with all the stuff the (truly) lovely people brought over. umpty ump kinds of cookies, cakes, zuccini bread, pie, 3 fruit baskets, homemade chocolate fudge (that one was my downfall).

I ate more sugar in the last 10 days than I have in the last 18 months, total.

All left-over crap from the pneumonia and "curatives." WeightWatchers online cautioned me to stop losing so much!:-) I feel much better, esp. my breathing.

Today, for the first time in three months, I had my first solo trip out of the house; I drove myself to a nearby restaurant and met a friend for lunch. I did okay with the walking, with carrying the O2 bottle and visiting. Didn't get too tired and actually feel a bit energised which tells me it is time to get moving more...now the fear is gone.

Given the heat and humidity, I have put off starting my new walking adventures until it cools off a bit. The thyroid medication I take makes me sick when it's this hot & adding exercise only makes it worse. My yoga instructor is on vacation so really, I'm not doing much of anything except hanging out in front of a fan. Oh. And filling out more adoption paperwork. I suppose I could do yoga at home but my cats and dogs think that when Mommy is on the floor, it's playtime! Fun but not helpful when hanging out in poses like standing forward fold, down dog, up dog, any belly poses.....not fun (or productive) with dog noses poking every which way!!!!!

Okay. So here's the deal. I'm tired of NOT doing anything. I dusted off the treadmill, set up 2 fans nearby and walked 2 miles. It felt great and I might just do another one before the hour is over. My body misses the movement no matter what my head says.

Yesterday I took the kids into town so I could run some errands. It's a 3 mile or so round trip pushing the double buggy with buggy board. Last night was a 2 mile walk an hours step aerobics and a 2 mile jog home. On holiday from tomorrow morning but my running closes and shoes have been packed so I'll be jogging along the lochside for the next week!

Lots of walking last week - up and down bits of Hadrian's Wall and pottering around castles, cathedrals and towns... but lots of sitting in the sun and sewing too!

Back to work and the walking routine now.. it's taking time to get back into it after those weeks I took off in June/July. Glad to say that the suspected 'swine flu' 2 weeks ago didn't take a big toll and although I got tired quickly for a few days afterwards, I was fine by the Saturday.

Weigh-in in a couple of hours so we'll see how much those holiday ice-creams have added...

My husband and I went on a sunrise (kayak) paddle this morning. It was WONDERFUL! It was kinda neat to be the very first person to enter the water this morning. The water was much warmer than the air and it was absolutely still. There was a heavy mist in the air that seemed to swallow me as I paddled off. It's an interesting sensation to have some of your senses removed. I couldn't see anything in front or behind be except for the gray, silvery mist. The only sounds I heard were an occasional fish jumping out of the water & the bird songs somewhere in the distance. Absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to go again.

Activity (so far) for today: 2 hours of kayaking

Good news this week, the extra couple of pounds have vanished, taking half of another one with them... only half a pound to go and I'll have lost 10% of my body weight since last year. It's been a slow old grind over the winter, stuck at one point for nearly 3 months, but it's back on track now and I'm already feeling the benefits!

Well, I've done enough yardwork to reactivate an old shoulder injury.

I'll have to see if it gets better or worse on its own.

The besy thing for it is physical therapy, nut mine is mad at me after I lost a meditation CD she lent me. It's not the kind of CD you can run down to the corner and replace.

MAG,

   Have you tried iTunes? You can purchase the music and burn it to a CD for her...maybe that would help.   Feel better.

MAG,

   If you can't get it on iTunes try calling the Kripalu gift shop in Massachusetts. It's a yoga retreat place with a gift shop that is half music....all kinds of obscure meditational kinds of stuff. If they don't have it, I'd bet they can get it.

Great news Liz!!

We're just back from a soggy but enjoyable week in Scotland visiting family. I've managed to put on 3lbs by eating very nice and rich food, not to mention too much birthday cake! I did manage one run along the loch side but as it was so wet for most of the week we drove most places and didn't do alot of activity. So I'm back home and back on track, exercise classes have been booked and I'm going for a jog tonight once the kids have gone to bed and Paul is home from work.

Aquatics are back into a measuring-mode for the season, and last night I found that I'd cracked the 160 BPM barrier (150's just a week ago) into the 170-190 BPM, intervals zone. The Fall and Winter will include, as well, our home weight room, with Hardi as mentor. I'll be posting starting weights, reps, and sets as soon as he can start me off with a baseline assessment. We have some REAL nice toys here now.
