    My name is Ellie and about 5 years ago lost 90 on WW and kept it off for a few years. After a few surgeries and a change in the program (the points plus just isn't working for me) and not being active I gained 25 back -- now nothing fits. And after the last surgery (rotator cuff) I lived in sweats and easy to pull on clothes and no activity except for the PT. My WW activity points were 0-5 total for the week. Just joined the fitness weight loss program at the gym we belong too. Diet is high protein and lots of workouts - 3-5 workouts/week for about an hour each. I think this may be the kick I need and need to lose that 25!


    Ellie, welcome to our little group wanting to lose weight, exercise and have a more healthy lifestyle.

    I had rotator cuff surgery two weeks ago this past Friday, I have never had anything compare to this. I refused to wear sweats because it is so easy to let yourself go in them and not worry. Right now I am not tryng to lose weight but to maintain what I have lost. If I make it through this ordeal without gaining I will be happy.

    Hope everyone has had a great weekend. My shoulder is telling me I have already had enough computer time and to get off so I will see you all tomorrow and will post the next time I can take my thing off for a few.

    Hey I am around, was just on my phone and I am too chatty to make a post using that. icon_lol.gif We are getting so many new members it is great to see.

    Leggy Peggy, I wish I ate as healthy as you. I have been slipping too much lately and been depending on more convenient foods. You got a great workout plan there, hope you got your bike back.

    Zurie, I am with you and the gyms. I stole the bottle of Febreeze to keep in my room to spray under my elliptical when I am done. Thunder-storm rain, yeah that would keep me in too.

    Laury, sorry to hear all that is going on with you and Tom, hope you both get better soon. That is horrible that they tried to make it your fault you were late for the test, what jerks. WOW you are really getting down there aren't you, way to go.

    Recipe Reader, hope you got in some walking time this week.

    Bonnie, hope you had a great weekend with your hubby and got to the beach too.

    threeovens, Welcome to the group and Thank You for sharing your story with us. I hope you start taking some time to care for you. Is there anyway to schedule an appointment the same time you have to take your hubby to one. Try stack things together if at all possible. I sure hope your hubby gets well soon, that is very stressful having to help a loved one when they are sick. I think journaling what you eat and when will help you discover what you eat and when.

    Jacqueline, good to see you posting. Happy to hear you keep popping in to read what we are posting. I hope your shoulder starts hurting less soon and we see you more often. A loss too, that is great. Keep you your hard work with PH and getting better.

    Elle, Welcome to the group too. Sounds like you have some plans going. I am not a person to work out around other people.

    Me, well I have worked out twice since my last posting, on Saturday I did 80 minutes on the elliptical, 5 rounds on each resistance levels of 2 minutes each, and 40 minutes sprints in rounds 2&3 on each resistance. Then today I decided to get back into my Jillian Michaels' workouts and did Level 1 30 Day Shred. Man what a killer. After that I started checking out the her Yoga Meltdown but couldn't keep up. So I decided to turn that off after a few stretches and got on the elliptical for 43 minutes to round out a 70 minute workout. I had a hard time when I started on the elliptical, was doing just over 45 rpms when I normally do around 60+ rpms. My legs were just jelly, but I know doing the elliptical helps work out any tension the DVD workout creates. Oh and I had another loss as of Friday, I am down to 165.2, which is a 3.6 lb loss total for this year.

    Hey, it's a "full house" here again, with both Laury and Jacquie back!!

    My best wishes for a speedy recovery, Jac, and Laury, I wish you strength with all your problems.

I thought it was the uncomfortable hospital chairs, lol. It was actually arthritis. Now I have it very bad in my knees and feet. I also have neuropathy in the lower extremities. I have not yet been to a orthopedic doctor because I am a terrible procrastinator and don't have that much spare time because I am always caring for DH and working. But enough with excuses. I have regained all the weight I lost so many years ago because it is difficult to walk. My job is strenuous and I do the best I can.


    Threeovens, have you had your blood glucose level checked recently? I'm asking because of the neuropathy in your lower extremities.

    I agree with the others about diet sodas. Like them, I don't know exactly what makes a person gain weight if you drink them, but it's now a fact. Rather have iced tea or simple water.

    You are probably also under great stress, and sometimes stress makes people go off their food -- or makes them eat too much. By now you know what you should not eat. Maybe self-discipline is all you need to start losing again. And -- stay off the starches as much as possible. Rather some sweetpotato (unsweetened -- try sprinkling with cinnamon) rather than potatoes, crackerbread with cheese/tuna/mashed boiled egg -- rather than soft white bread. Sometimes only a few substitutes are needed.

    What arm was your surgery on? It was rougher than I imagined but you'll get through it. I wish I organized things a bit better. My son made all the meals - so pizza and hot dogs were our usual fare. Now to get back to what I need to do!

    Okay, I'm cheating here. We did walk six dogs this morning and I got a pic
    or two of the scenery, but none of the dogs. icon_redface.gif But a while back, we did a walk
    with 10 dogs and eight people.

    Here's a pic from that walk, and it's the same place we walked today.
    Five of the six dogs who walked today are in this pic, and all three humans are.
    Oh no, wait, I'm not in this pic.



    So here's a pic of me feeding five dogs. Two of the pictured dogs crossed
    the Rainbow Bridge in the last 15 months. I miss them too much.

    Leggy Peggy, did you get any photos taken?

    Jacqueline, it's wonderful seeing you posting more. Getting well is more important than posting so do get the rest your body needs.

    Recipe Reader, have you made a suggestion of a like button? I think there are places to make suggestions.

    tasb, doing the elliptical and the Jullian Michaelss workout is a lot. You have been so successful with exercise, It's wonderful.

    Zurie, it is great having Jacqueline back. All the hosts from the Special Diets have talked before this thread was started. We know that we don't want to give just our ideas. As long as a diet is successful, and not dangerous to the person medically, we feel they are fine. With only me hosting this thread I wanted help making sure I don't push my ideas. Having Jacqueline back helps me run things more easily.

    Bonnie G,, I hope you and your husband had a good weekend.

    Alisa Lee, Granny Moses and Debbwl, I hope you have an excellent week.

    Today I am having a hard time getting exercising in but I will do it. Once a week I wake Tom up when I get up so he can do the laundry. it puts me behind schedule for what I want to get done. It's okay because I just readjust.

    Hi Laury
    We were posting at the same time! icon_smile.gif
    Hope you get your exercising in. Is today when you wake Tom early to do laundry?
    I've already told hubby (he gets called Poor John) that he has to vacuum tomorrow.

    I like the photos you posted, Peggy! I will be working on photos today for the Sweet Piotatoes thread. I also need to post more recipes.
    I did wake Tom at 4 to do the laundry. He did it and took a several hour nap. I try to help but usually he does better without my help. I am constantly told to "Velcro!!" Velcro means to pretend my underwear and my recliner both have velcro on them and stick them together. icon_smile.gif icon_smile.gif
    I have done 2 10 minute walks and I will have to do one more.

    Hope everyone has a great day. I have PT and think I am going to try to drive some today. Just to my sister's house which is only about 1000 yards or less.

    Oh Peggy, I love the photos, I miss having a dog around the house but with all the traveling we do it's really not an option for us. I did keep my DGSs dog for about 6 months a couple of years ago for training and was so pleased at how thrilled they were with the results.

    Laury - sounds like you are having a good week after that miserable test appointments.

    Hope everyone else is doing well

    I want a Like button too. So many times I see something I like and I would love to hit like, especially when I am on my phone.

    Leggy, do you feed the dogs a raw food diet? Is that what they are waiting for. I would love to have a dog for when we go walking/jogging, as we are out in the country, or as I like to call it the bush. A few times I had to take a wider step when jogging to avoid stepping in black bear crap, and we have cougar and coyote sightings in this area too.

    Laury, I like the Velcro comment. I read it when I was at work and started snickering, I had a couple kids look at me kinda strange when they were walking by. Good for you getting in your walking. Tom probably doesn't want your help too because it takes away from your walks. Such a kind thoughtful man.

    Me, well I am doing my best to keep my new workout routine going. I just finished another Jillian/elliptical workout totaling 70 minutes. I wasn't feeling too bad this morning but as the day wore on I started feeling my muscles more. Mainly butt and thighs. Just now I went down to the basement to get some frozen fruit and my poor thighs muscles were just shaking. I know it will take about 2 weeks before this goes away so I am not going to give in that easily. I know this is going to really hurt tomorrow, probably need the walls to get down the 7 steps to my kitchen in the morning. icon_lol.gif

    I don't own all these dogs! At the moment we only have one at home—my
    adored standard schnauzer was put down about a year ago. icon_cry.gif

    As for the food, when they stay at my house, they eat my food. I make my
    Dog Food for Normal, Fussy, Fat, Thin and Diabetic Dogs for everyone.

    Exceptions are any dog who needs to be on a special diet. We have two
    'guests' and the moment and one is on meds and a strict diet. Keeps me busy.

    Tomorrow will be more walkies—this time six dogs and four people. A friend
    has just arrived from the USA. We've known one another since we were 4.
