August Weight update

So my friend Rae reminded me it has been quite sometime since I have updated everyone. I can't say I lost alot but I did come down a bit. I am down to 376.9 not bad for not really trying all that hard. Been so busy this summer and things just seem to keep coming up. Life is always full of surprises including the scale actually being down no matter how small of a amount it was.

Weigh in

I thought I would give you all a update on how things were going my last weigh in I was 379.5, today I weighed in at 377. I am so happy. Every little bit helps. Those walks with the kids are doing well, and I am trying to increase my activity during the day as well. Thank you for all of your support.

Marksville goes for a walk

I know two posts in one week, but since I now know the weight it coming off even though it is slow, I am bound and determined to get it down even more. Plus Samantha needs the walks so when she is cleared on the 17th she will be able to start running again, and her stomach muscles will be ready for it. She is so excited to get back into running, and until then I have a walking partner. This weekend Dennise has a friend over so after dinner we all took off for a walk, Princess included. Princess is our Saint Bernard for anyone not aware of who she is. She is a great protector, and loves walks and riding in the van. I guess that is it for now. Here is to a bit more of weight loss and to be healthy.

Weigh in

It has been a really long time since I have updated you all on my fight to lose weight. I meant to get to it the other day, but finally got on the scale today, after lunch with my clothes and shoes on and the scale said 379.5 down from 382.6. Not much for the length of time since I was last on but at least the scale numbers are going down every so slowly but still moving in the right direction. Thank you to all who have been checking up on me and giving me support along the way.

Days 7-24

Sorry I have been neglecting my updates. I have managed to excercise about half of the days maybe more. Between the kids appointments, school functions, and not feeling well myself it has been a long road. I have yet to step on the scale at the Dr.'s. I forgot all about it a few weeks ago when I took Dorothy to have her checked out. Our Dr. has the neatest scale. He bought it was back when he had a patient that was much heavier then me, sad to say but true, so that I believe it was a he would be able to come and weigh himself regularly, while he was losing weight. I believe the scale will take up to 15000 pounds, but I will check that out and report back to all of my supporters here. I wish we lived closer so I could weigh myself more. Our scale sadly does not go up to my weight, at least not right now, but I haven't even tried getting on it in a while, so maybe it does? Let me go check it out......... it worked I am so happy I am at 382.6 down from 384.4 I lost a little bit but it sure makes me feel great. I had forgotten we had bought a new one that could register my weight a while back. We had mainly got it for our daughter but now I remember we got it so that we could also weigh ourselves. I am so glad I checked. Now I can step on it a bit more.

For those of you who don't follow all of my blogs I got one of the tests back and it showed negative results for Cushing's Syndrome. That is good news but still doesn't tell us why it is so hard for me to lose weight. I am still waiting for other results to come in on the lump in my neck. I was suppose to hear from someone last Tuesday about it but still no call. I will call on this Tuesday if I still haven't heard from them by Monday to find out the results.

I also wanted to mention I won a prize on another blog and that should help me keep track of my eating, excercise, and weight on a daily basis. Thanks Marsha for hosting such a nice prize on your site. If anyone is interested her site is at Marsha's Spot . Again thank you to all of my supporters here on blogspot, gather, as well as my supporters from home. Hugs to all.

Days 5 & 6

Days 5 and 6 I didn't do to much, just lots of rest, sleeping, a little gather, more sleeping. I think you get the point. Today which is Day 7 I am feeling a bit more like myself and should be able to resume excercise. Thank you all for stopping by and don't be afraid to give some encouragement in the comment section below.

Day 4

Day four did not go well. I forgot to mention that during that special time of the month I am not allowed to excercise or drink many fluids. A little much I know but I am a heavy bleeder with very thin blood, which also makes my heart flutter. I guess we came up with during this time, since I lose so much blood, and my blood is already to thin, that any stress on my body just wrecks havic with my heart. In a few days I will be able to resume my efforts. Until then it is alot of staying still, and not letting any stress in.

Days 2 & 3

I was a bit busy the last two days as Friday was my busy day with the kids. I was able to just squeeze in about 20 minutes on Friday and Saturday I probably walked for about 3 hours totaled while shopping but still moving, it was probably more and pushing big heavy carts to boot, bending, lifting. I think you get the idea. I guess in the past few years that I have put on so much weight these are some of the only days I would get moving, that is why I like to keep the kid active in things in their school, it also provides me the get up and go to get moving. So with their busy schedules I have to take them places or pick them up and this gives me opportunity to get out and move. I do pride myself in being very flexible for someone my size but that is only because I like to do yoga. I only do the stretches for the back and legs, so the pretty easy beginner ones for me, but over the years with putting weight on I have noticed I can't bend my legs as much, that would be the overage of fat on my thighs, oh my. Also because of the joint pain and muscle pain I haven't been able to do much of the yoga, that I use to enjoy which really bums me out. It has also caused me to pretty much stop doing them all together, but I hope in the next few days to start with one pose, see how it goes, and then add on from there till I get back up to where I use to be. I need to do this for my health, and so I can keep up with my children. That's all for today thanks for stopping by.

Day 1

I did my 20 minutes of excercise yesterday, and plan on doing it again today towards evening. I didn't make it through the whole video but the instructor said if it was a bit hard or in my case my heart rate got up to high to just walk in place, which I did for 2 of the excercises. I use to do this video with out any problems but in the last 3 years since my daughter was born I put on about 124 pounds which is alot.

I stopped doing the excercises when I started having all of the pain I do. It is always moving around, so far they haven't figured out what is causing it, it has been enough time that I have just got to get back into the groove of things, and try to lose some of the weight. My highest weight before now was 380 but that had to do with my kidneys, and so far those tests have come back alright. The pain I have seems to be in the muscles. Like my ribs and elbows might hurt one day, my calf on one leg, and my instep on the other leg another. Sometimes it feels like I can hardly move my fingers fast enough to keep up with my brain, and still others times it hurts all over and it takes me like 5 minutes to get up the stairs. I don't have any swelling or inflamation, although I do have heat flashes around 3am in the morning, but I have had those ever since my tick bite, which they keep a close eye on my numbers there to, so my hopes are that they will figure it out before I end up 6 feet under.

My life is here with my family and every waking breath is for them and for me to truely enjoy the time I have with them.

Pam's fight to lose weight

Well here I am another year and even heavier then last. I am still seeking help from the Dr.'s as they still can not tell me why I am still putting on weight, but I just joined a site where you could win a 100.00 for the Rev Up Your Weight Loss Challenge. I guess I just needed that little extra push to get me moving a bit more. This is a 6 week challenge so I hope you will all check back with me from time to time to see how I am doing. I guess I should give everyone my beginning size. I am
5'7'' and weigh about 384 at the time of this blog so I really need all the encouragement I could possibly recieve. I know this weight is not good for my body so please join me in the challenge to see if I can do it.
