I am feeling defeated. I ended up with another labral tear in my other hip and had to discontinue even walking very far. I had surgery on the left hip and it was remarkable. No pain. I was off crutches in 2 weeks and every day was regaining mobility with NO PAIN. Then two months post op. I reinjured the hip I had just had repaired. It is much more painful now that it was even presurgery. Not to mention the right one still needs repair. I have regained the 25lbs I had lost back in 2010 and an additional few pounds and now I can't even walk let alone exercise. If I hadn't retorn my left hip, today I would've been released by the surgeon for all activities. Sigh. Now it looks as though I'll need to have the left hip repaired AGAIN and then the right hip repaired. I'm not even certain how long the surgeon will wait before he goes back in. I did a search about how many calories I would need to lose weight being sedentary. It said 1100 calories to lose 1 lb per week. I can't do that. That's less than a woman is even supposed to eat, not to mention I'd be starving all the time.
Other than my hip issues, life is pretty good. I am just disgruntled because the doc put me back on crutches for a bit and I can't clean my house as I'd like or garden.
Pray for me please.

  You may be down, but you're not out! This is not a defeat, but a temporary set back! This too, shall pass! People are pulling for you. No one is ever defeated who has others n their side!

So here it is July and I have not only not lost any weight but have gained a pound or two or three. I am really really struggling with eating correctly and tracking. That is the ONLY way I will lose weight. I have now outgrown my "fat" clothes from before when I lost weight. Not good and not a good feeling. I know what I need to do and I did it before (25lbs) but it is so much more difficult to do it this time around. I do know that once I do get it together and re-lose this weight that I will do everything I can to keep from getting sidetracked like before. I can do this... so I don't know why it's so hard this time around. My husband is concerned about my weight and has mentioned it a couple of times. Not in a mean way but to remind me(like I need reminding). He is very supportive though and does love me the way I am but wants me to be healthier and more active. So... let me see if I can do this again.

Here I go again... I hope

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Well it's official. I'm back up to my original heavy weight. I regained the 25 lbs that I had lost. It took me almost 3 years but I did. emoticon
So now with summer coming on, I need to begin again. This time will be harder for a multitude of reasons but number 1 being that I cannot exercise like I could before. I tore the cartilage in my right hip doing aerobics. (Labral tear) A cortisone shot has helped a great deal with the pain but it still hurts when I do certain movements. I can manage walking so I will begin there.
Tracking food is so tedious and I hate doing it but I know it is the only thing that will work for me. Sooooo...... here we go.
Pray for me because I will certainly need it.

    You definitely have my prayers, I'm just starting again after losing 60 pounds and ending up back where I started again after my Dad's death (stress, being in the hospital with him for a few months, etc) and more. I hate having to start over, but it's something we both and others, must do.

My "yuck" thing, is the exercise, and now I have a knee problem because I fell on both knees, twice in two weeks time, and they hurt. You can do this, and so can I, Try, like I've been doing, the chair exercises, at your rate. They do bring your heart rate up, they make you sweat, and you can do them at whatever is comfortable for you, but at least you're exercising.

The food thingy gets easier, this is only my second week and I've found it's gotten a lot easier already. I wish you a lot of luck, but more than that...I KNOW you can do this. :) Many Prayers!

AWOL for a bit but I think I'm back

Friday, May 11, 2012

So October 26th my father-in-law lost his fight with esophageal cancer. During his illness I regained some of the weight I had lost. We were eating a lot of fast food and carryout during his illness and of course that isn't good. Two days after Christmas my husband had a mild(thank God) heart attack with minimal damage but he did spend 3 days in the hospital. Once again, carryout food.
So here it is almost summer and I cannot wear any of my clothes from last summer. I have GOT to jump back on the healthy wagon because boy howdy am I getting uncomfortable again. emoticon The one good thing about everything is that I did not quit exercising. I did quit doing extra exercise but I still attended my 3 times a week 30 minute class.(except during December when the class was closed). That's something I suppose. I know I need to track my eating but I really hate doing it. It seems to be the ONLY way I can lose weight because I LOVE food and love to eat. Somehow seeing the calorie count staring back at me keeps me accountable. It's so tedious though and I despise doing it.
I should be happy I suppose that I kept the majority of the weight off for almost 2 yrs. During that stress filled time I have somehow developed an addiction for sweets. I didn't really have a problem with that before but apparently I do now. Sigh..........
So today... I will start anew. I hope. emoticon

    I find tracking is the only way to keep me from overeating. Sweets are my downfall as well.

    Hang in there. Tracking is tedious, but it does remind you of what you are doing. A lot of people, me included, will think twice about putting something in their mouths if they have to write it down.

So today the stress of everything just hit me. Well actually it started last night. I saw a commercial for potato chips and dip and I drove (1 mile) to the store and bought chips and sour cream and onion dip mix. The good is that I got lightly salted chips and reduced fat sour cream. The bad news is .... that's about all I've eaten since then. I have not wanted any "real" food today. So I decided to just eat what I was in the mood for today. We will see what happens tomorrow.
My father-in-law hasn't declined a great deal yet but it is still time consuming making sure he has someone to get his meals and meds. Lately we have been hitting up fast food places as we literally have no time to cook. I suppose we could eat PBJ but that would get old after a while. So I have decided that I will just maintain.... again.... I have not gained anything so I suppose that is a bonus. I am still exercising three times a week and other than today.... mostly try to make wise choices foodwise.
I didn't realize how mentally draining it is to care for someone. Even though we aren't actually over there all the time doing the caring.
My stepson is in the Coast Guard and he is serving a one year stint in Bahrain. He gets to come home this weekend for 2 weeks R&R. I can't wait to see him. Then he returns to Bahrain to finish his last 6 months. This has been a stressful year to be certain. Maybe even the most stressful thus far? I don't know. Things always seem worse when you are experiencing it than it maybe was.
Sooo... I think I'll go eat a bowl of cereal, put on my jammies and try to hug the cat. She's in hunting mode since the warm weather arrived and isn't as available for hugging as she was in the winter. LOL Hubby is working off his stress in the "mancave"(garage).
To quote Scarlet O'Hara... Tomorrow is another day!

    I understand the potato chips and dip thing. I restarted the Sonoma Diet and since filling my plate with plenty of veggies and whole grains, my stomach is full. Hope I keep this up and can move some weight.

  Thank goodness for reduced fat sour cream and lightly salted chips.

I agree with you tomorrow is another day.

This too shall pass!
