  • Tuesday Last Day of March

    3/31/2015 2:30:39 PM, by STARZ4US

    It's been rough for over a week. I have a severe Sinus and Allergy Infection going on. Head hurts so much I can't stand the light. I also have been unable to sleep at all. After 3days of no sleep I had a fed hours of fitfull sleep due to the headache. Of course I know what you are thinking; did... Read more

  • I just don't care anymore!

    3/30/2015 9:09:55 PM, by MRSGROUCHO

    So today, I'm at the YMCA and I'm swimming. The other people in the pool were seriously about twice my age and WAY better swimmers than I am. So there I was, kind of half doggy paddling half swimming while the other people zoomed around the pool. Seriously people... they were fast! It was then that ... Read more

  • Might be Weight Loss Program Next Week

    3/30/2015 6:46:02 PM, by AMYROSEC

    I registered through my health provider a very rigid weight loss program called Optifast. It is for a BMI of 35 or above. My BMI is at 37 right now. It is a 5 month program. I registered for the class that starts in September. The nurse called on the Dr. behalf that he wanted to see me right away be... Read more

  • 3/30/2015 Week in Review :( and :)

    3/30/2015 12:19:25 PM, by PATTYKLAVER

    I won't even post the figures. I didn't get in two days what I usually get in a normal day. But I must say that I've been using different muscles and lifting more (as in about 20 pounds already!) I knew that being at Sherry's (where there is literally a TON of snow) that I wouldn't be on my norma... Read more

  • A certain mind set

    3/30/2015 10:29:10 AM, by 4CONNIESHEALTH

    Losing weight is more of a mind set than anything! We have to trick our mind into thinking we are full, that we are not too tired, that we aren't too sore, that we don't NEED a ____. Then there is mind tricking about our friends and family. We have to remind ourselves as to why we want to loose the ... Read more

  • when will it be enough?

    3/29/2015 10:54:01 PM, by 4CONNIESHEALTH

    When I started my weight loss adventure I weighed 175 and I stand 5'3". My first goal was to weigh 163 than 157 and finally 150. I figured that if I were to get to 150 pounds that I would feel better and look great; I didn't. Than I found out that to be in the healthy range I should weigh between 10... Read more

  • This morning

    3/29/2015 10:33:26 PM, by LADYIRISH317

    This morning I decided to go out to breakfast. Yes, I have plenty of food in the house, but I decided to go out anyway. Funny, but all the way down the walkway to my car I felt this huge pressing sensation, like I was doing something wrong and NEEDED to turn back. But I did go out, to a restaurant n... Read more

  • Juggling exercise, sick kids, mountains of laundry and everything else

    3/29/2015 4:02:08 PM, by MRSGROUCHO

    Oy. So I haven't made it to the Y nearly as much as I had hoped to this week. Though I have made an effort to do some exercise even if it meant bundling up and walking outside. I live in a very hilly area so I only get about 20 minutes of walking in before I feel like my legs may break off my body.... Read more

    3/27/2015 9:56:08 PM, by MARMIZC

    So I have knocked 22 lbs off since Halloween thanks to my Fit Bit zip.That's great, but it is only a kernel of grain next to what has to get off. I figured I would try on working on my self esteem but getting a hair trim and color my roots. I feel more presentable:hopefully I will be feeling more wo... Read more

  • Lesson learned!!!

    3/27/2015 9:45:40 PM, by MRSGROUCHO

    A friendly word of advice... Speaking from experience.... Never. Never. Ever. Leave your gym bag in the car overnight when it is very very cold outside. Because then, if you happen to be getting to the Y in a bit of a hurry, and you get changed for the pool rather quickly... 40 It's NO fun to put o... Read more

    In life we move along in time making choices, some end up being good and some not so good. We can't always be perfect because only God is the perfect one so don't be so hard on yourself. Pick yourself up, start again, learn from what we did and make great choices next time. Remember we are only what... Read more

    So today didn't go as planned but I am NOT going to beat myself up over it. I was planning to go to the Y when my husband got home from work but at that just did not work. Things popped up today that were just beyond my control. And frankly, I was debating on going. I am EXHAUSTED. There's so much g... Read more

    FREEDOM ISN'T FREE: My abuser/husband kicked/locked me out while i was in the hospital. I have envisioned this day, listened to the audio I have of him threatening me and wondered what life could be like. Now that he's gone out of my life I find myself frightened of being alone and wonder what's to ... Read more

  • depression

    3/24/2015 4:46:36 PM, by WILDXANGELS

    What I hate most about anxiety is waking up with it. It’s like an emotional hangover – the first thing you feel before you open your eyes. I want to be able to tie my anxiety to an event or person or thing. Maybe then I could make sense of it. But I can’t. It is just there, tight and nauseous ... Read more

    Seriously, so weird that there are cheese curls in my home (thanks to my husband) but I don't want them. It's a good kind of weird though. 41 I've seriously enjoyed some healthy food today.

    3/22/2015 12:25:44 PM, by 4CONNIESHEALTH

    I want to loose weight... BADLY! I joined Weight Watchers in September of 2014 and since then I have lost 33 pounds. On average it is a pound a week. In order to keep up this pace I have had to increase my workouts. I used to run on the treadmill for 25 min. and walk outside for 40 min everyday. Now... Read more

    The photo I posted Wednesday night has a short story. I truly am afraid of spiders ... they make my skin crawl if I am anywhere near them. For some reason I can get within inches of them to take a picture as long as they aren't moving. Spiders in a web are best because they tend to stay in th... Read more
