    :Recipe Reader:!! Losing 15 pounds in a year is good. Maybe we can help inspire you to lose the weight you want. My doctor wants me to eat the way you do with a sensible diet.Listening to your ipod is a good way to not be bored by walking. I walk inside our apartment so I usually put on a TV show I want to watch. I have lost quite a bit of weight over the years but occasionally I have gained some back. My highest was 229 and now I am about 149 so that is 80 pounds. I am hoping to get down to between 130 and 140 but if I don't, I can feel good about my weight. I am no longer harming my body in any way by being at the weight I am.

    WOOHOO, new people!!! WELCOME Zurie and Leggy Peggy, Recipe Reader.

    Bonnie, have a good weekend with your hubby and good luck apartment hunting with your friend.

    Laury, I hope you and Tom get better soon, not fun being sick where you can't eat anything. Sorry to hear you are in pain too. My fingers are crossed for you and your test. I have been trying to figure out this whole allergy thing on my own for about a year and a half now, after I tried a Naturalpath Dr, who tried to put me on diets. I gave up and went to a regular Dr and got a referral to a Allergist a year ago in October, but I am thinking my referral got lost.

    Alisa Lea, keep your hard work and you will see a loss soon.

    Granny Moses, how great your hubby encouraging you like that, getting something you really wanted for exercise. Mine doesn't say much because I will take it the wrong way, he is not mean in anyway, just the mental abuse I put up with before I met him.

    Zurie, welcome once again. I am almost tempted to say I will take your hot and humid and you can have my cold and snowy. Then I remember I hate exercising outside in summer. WOW 17 kg and kept it off, good for you. I am one who could never give up carbs, I have such a bad sweet tooth. Hence the reason why I have been baking since I was 9.

    Leggy Peggy, also welcome again. Good for you already eating healthy. What kind of exercise do you do? I have been hovering in where you are but at 5' 1" it really shows.

    Recipe Reader, welcome to you too, again. 15 lbs since last summer, I think I found them. LOL I use music with my elliptical trainer and have been varying my intensity and duration.

    Me, well it has been a really long day. I woke up at 4 am and got back to sleep after 5, until my alarm went off at 6. Then a whole day of work, then off to town to pick my son up and go shopping for my older DD's birthday presents and cake, then dinner at KFC/Taco Bell. I had a Crunch Wrap Supreme, most of my small fries and just finished my drink after my workout. I had a cup of ramen noodles for lunch because I can't eat a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. After we got home I lazied around for a bit then told my girls I whined too much yesterday so I had to do my exercise. 70 minutes later and I used 7&8 resistances in my levels, not just as a minute thing to try it out. I did 4 rounds of 1-8 resistances, the 2nd and 3rd rounds I put in 40 seconds of sprints in 1-6 resistances and 30 seconds on 7&8 resistances. Then the 4th round I varied the resistances as my legs were feeling too sore, then 6 minute cool down.

    BTW: I am still evil, this morning my scale is still reading 166.6. I am happy means I didn't gain over the weekend. But then I didn't touch any alcohol. Hubby bought some Saturday, but I wanted coffee more, so I put off having any and it is still in the frig. He also only had one of his. So not to bad at all. I have only had 6 drinks since Dec 22nd.

    I've eaten healthy for years. Mostly fresh foods, in fact I can't think of the
    last processed food I used, unless you count things like ketchup. We do a
    lot of overland truck travel too and usually shop in local markets rather than

    I'm actually not too bad with exercise. I go to the gym twice a week and walk three days a week. Used to do the gym three times a week and walk
    five, but the dog is getting old and the walks are less often and less strenuous. Was also riding my bike about 30 kilometres twice a week, but
    a daughter borrowed it for the six months we were away travelling.

    We've been home only two weeks. I'm still getting the house back in order
    before five house guests arrive next week. Then the plan is to retrieve the
    bike, and up the ante on the gym and walks. Heck the dog doesn't have to
    come on every walk. But don't ask me to give up the nightly beer or glass
    of wine. One must have some standards.

    tasb, I'm impressed by your efforts.

    Hee, Hee; I'm with you Peggy, DH and I truly enjoy our evenings when he gets of work and we head to the balcony over look the ocean and enjoy our evening glass of wine together as he unwinds and I update him on my day. We do try to eat healthy most days, staying away from fried foods, limiting carbs (though I do love to bake breads) and lots of fresh veggies from the open markets here. We eat out about once a week, as we enjoy trying out the resturants and differant foods here in Trini, and try to walk as much as possible. Though I have to say, DH walks a LOT more than me at this point but I'm hoping to do better once I'm able.

    I'm very much aware that I have NOT done well since we've been here, just to many things to try at the moment, and I've gained back 10# over the last year that I really need to get off again. Hoping I can get that done when I return to the States for the summer as I know I'll have a LOT of outside work to catch up on and will be cooking only for me and not both of us and I tend to not only watch what I eat, but eat less. When it's for DH like here - he likes a bigger variety than I do and he works hard so I feel like it's my job to make him as happy as I can and still healthy. How's that for an excuse.

    Well, it's hump day, and I haven't done to bad this week, not that I think I've lost anything, but don't think I've gained either, will see on Monday i suppose.

    Laury is off today and I volunteered to look in on this forum, but it seems to be going along swimmingly!

    I am sooo bad when it comes to exercise. I detest gyms ... I wonder how much money I have wasted on gym subscriptions: I would go a few times, and then give up!!! So boring!

    Actually, I am also not so convinced that jogging or running is a good idea after about age 25! I have a friend who seriously took up jogging and running many years ago at a late age, and she now has serious knee and hip problems. Maybe for a woman brisk walking is the best excercise .. ? icon_confused.gif icon_confused.gif

    To what I said earlier about me avoiding carbs: there is one carb I CAN NOT RESIST: potatoes!!! So, I still eat potatoes, I make lovely roast potatoes, I could LIVE on potatoes!! As long as I don't go wild, it does not seem to affect either my weight or my blood glucose levels!

    (Everyone is different. My blood glucose definitely reacts to wheat/grain products, and not so much to veg starches).

    And ... I'm am not about to give up my wine at night!! I'm just finishing the last of my last glass icon_eek.gif before going off to a bath! Strangely enough, it does not seem to affect either my weight or my blood sugar -- but it IS dry wine.

    Happy eating! icon_wink.gif icon_lol.gif

    tasb, you are doing so well with your exercising!! I am very impressed.!!

    Leggy Peggy, you are doing great with eating non-processed food and exercise!! I don't think you have to give up alcohol. Each person decides for them what the best food, exercise and other things they do. I feel that each person makes choices all the time. Most things we do during the day are choices we make.

    Bonnie, you are doing well and you have plans made for future successes!

    Zurie, thank you so much for keeping an eye on things so I could have a day off!! We used to eat potatoes often. I requested Tom start making sweet potatoes instead. We both
    prefer the taste and any extra nutrition help we get is wonderful.

    For me, yesterday was a miserable day. We take para-trans which is transportation for the disabled and elderly. We got to the hospital after 8. My appointment was 8:30. I have been told by doctor that I am not to try to walk to the radiology lab which does the test. A wheelchair was called for but it took over 20 minutes for it to show it to show up. Since I wasn't there at my appointment time, no fault of mine, they had me as an add-on. They finally did the test at 10. The chest CT cost us over $400. That does mean we have met my deductible from insurance.
    Tom was not feeling well yesterday. He did go with me for the
    CT/ He came home and took a nap. I woke him up around 4:30. He had dinner and I went into the bedroom. After 6 I was in bed, not wearing much, when the complex manager came to inspect our apartment. Tom and she had a big fight so she never inspected our whole apartment.
    Hopefully tomorrow's test will be easier. I can't handle another day like yesterday, If I can't be here tomorrow, please, keep
    going swimmingly.

    Oh Laury, sorry to hear your day was so difficult. I'll keep an eye on things
    here tomorrow. Hope your coming day is much better. Sending hugs.

    Oh Laury, hospitals and tests are ghastly to begin with, and when things go wrong, it's a nightmare.

    I also hope it is better (today? tomorrow?) next time.

    And we will all hope you and your husband both get better, and that all test and scan results will be fine. ((((Hugs!!))) wave.gif

    Thank you so much Leggy Peggy about tomorrow. I may be handling this one without Tom so knowing someone is going on the group will help keep me calm.

    Thanks Zurie for your good wishes!

    Today Tom is barely getting out of bed which is interesting. He was up from 9AM to 10:30. I found out that even though he has told me not to do some things, if I have to,, I can do them. He has food in a heavy casserole dish and I was able to take it out of the fridge and replace it. Soda with caffeine can replace coffee if it has to. Coffee helps my breathing but wearing oxygen all the time is okay too.

    Sorry to hear of your difficulties, Laury. Hoping it goes better for you today.

    It's rainy here, and I'm actually disappointed that it may keep me from walking. Which is a nice change, I'm not looking for an excuse to skip the walk. Probably because I can see the results.

    Hoping for a decent break to get a quick walk in.

    Recipe Reader, if you can't walk outside, walk in your home or apartment. If you are the only one home, you won't bother anyone else. I am a shut-in so I can avoid all the things I'm allergic to and anyone who is ill. I walk in my apartment 4 days a week, 3 10-minute periods. This has been decided by my doctor. She doesn't want me to add time or distance.I either do it when Tom's asleep or when he is outside. The times he is awake and home, I walk in the bedroom.

    Anyone interested in seeing a before and after picture?

    Laurie, hugs and best wishes that thing for both you and Tom get better fast, it's hard enough getting all these things done without all the frustrations added in. Hoping the test results are good at least.

    Yes, please! icon_smile.gif

    And I agree. A person can walk anywhere. Up and down a hallway.
    Round and round the living room. It all helps.

    Just a quick update. Gotta fold laundry. Last night I didn't exercise as it was my DD's b-day. My tummy wasn't happy with me and the combination of food she chose for her b-day dinner. I make them what they want on their b-day. She requested Shrimp and KD, then we had a Bavarian Cream Cake with fresh berries as her cake.

    Tonight I got on the elliptical for 70 minutes. Getting better at this. in rounds 2&3 I did 40 second sprints in all levels.

    Wow tasb, great effort. I've been holed up all day working. icon_sad.gif
    Except for a 90-minute casual dog walk this morning.

    Retrieving the bike from my daughter this weekend.
