Giving what I can, when the going is ruff !

I am the ML (does this stand for Motivational Leader,, or as I LIKE to say "MOST LOVED" leader !???? LOL Just ask the other leaders,,,, but, ONLY my vote counts,, of course in this case,, perhaps some insanity helps?) for the Spirited Under Dawgs,,, a part of the 5% challenge community. We do what we are able to ,,, in order to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks. I HAVE SUCCEEDED at this a few times ! Though at that point, my weight was quite higher than it is now ! So this IS POSSIBLE !! ...

So this IS POSSIBLE !!

For this SUMMER Challenge, I AM AGAIN (SIGH !) dealing with foot problems. Still in the "having tests" stage, so I can't state if I'll be down for all 8 weeks, or not, I tend to think yes.

So what I will do to lose the weight? The ONLY thing I can. To WATCH my food Intake ! The KEY IS TRACKING !! If you find ur gaining,, or on a plateau,,, RESTART with TRACKING, and EVERYTHING you put into ur mouth.

THIS IS DOABLE even if I don't lose the entire 5%, i WANT SOME !

I am OWNED by Missy Izzy !! A mix of Tiger,,,and Lamar ,, cat ! A lamar?? WHAT"s THAT??? its a kitty that has a rougher furr,,,, its a strange fur,,,, they have shorter legs,, almost dwarf like (Its GREAT ! She CAN'T JUMP on a lot of things my other cats have !) and when they are held in a "baby" position in ur arms,, they ALWAYS put their paw on ur face ! ADORABLE OR WHAT???? She's NOT at all demanding as some are,,, she's EXTREMELY LOVING. Sometimes TO MUCH So when I am trying to type ! LOL !

My Program:
To drink 5 to 7 glasses of water daily.

To TRACK DAILY ALL I put into the yap trap !

Exercise,, will vary,, and it can't be as it has been in the past,, until foot heals,, I CAN and WILL do arm exercises with weights,, once the picc line for antibiotics comes out.

Thanks for the great advice. I checked everything out in Edmonton Canada and here the back doctors might suggest a very light stretch. As far as back braces go my parents decided I should not be given the option. 6 months with a brace I could have had a straight back. Now I do the gym and like I said earlier haven't had any problems with the back for 10 years.. Seeing and hearing other members stories I am one of the lucky ones who can do something about it so feel very blessed being part of such a great supportive group. Thanks for the support! emoticon

The ulcer going to the bone is heart breaking but we will keep each other going. There are difficulties with Nationalized Health.Right now I think it is a bit of a P*ssing match between the doctors,the haematologist wants to get his way and my doctor won't subject me to the agony and he is afraid if he takes me off the anti-inflammatories and my legs swell till the skin splits I will get an infection like you have and he is digging his heels in and the haematologist is being a jerk. Me I am over here going screw you I like my doctor and I will only do what he says (I'd stick my tongue out but I don't think that would help matters LOL!)

Thanks for the goodie, I like cats too, but they keep going missing from where we live even though we try to keep them indoors at night. Rob and I are not getting any more pets for now, unless you count the half dozen deer the hang around or house as pets. We are thinking of moving.

Bad owners of pets ruin it. I knew someone whose cat just tore into someone's arm. I am sure they are feeling the same way about cats as you are about dogs.
