I have been a member here since 2006. I was always a skinny @#$%^...ya know the one everyone in HS always hates cuz I could eat whatever I wanted and never exercise and be a size 2.

Well after having kids, that all changed. Over the years I would gain and leave 10 pounds+ on with each child. Eventually I was over 180 and on my 5'4 self that is NOT healthy

I found Atkins and was able to lose all the way down to 138 back in 2008. Then I started having tummy troubles and after a year of excruciating pain, mounds of tests etc I had GB surgery.

For a full 2 years I continued with mysterious pains that came and went with no explanation and as much as I wanted to eat LC I just couldnt do it. I ate whatever I could that caused the least amouint of distress. I am happy to say the a new doc was able to treat me for an ulcer and THAT part is MUCH improved.

However, last spring I developed a different kinda pain all over...knocked me for a loop, thought Id die, got a DX of Fibromyalgia This def did NOT help with weight issue. It hurt too much to exercise and honestly the mental part of it was the worst. I wallowed in self pity for a good while...too long prolly, but I think I needed to mourn the me that was and get used to this NEW me...not defective, just different.

Bottom line...I am ready to do what it takes now to get healthy again

I actually started back on plan May 19 at...get ready...199 and weighed in at 191 yesterday. LOOOOONG road ahead, but I have to start somewhere. I need everyone to keep me accountable. I will try to post menus, maybe not detailed, but at the very least a list of daily foods. When I get back into a good groove, Ill start using my favorite cal tracker website again.

Ya Cheryl is here...

CJMO 05-29-2013 05:15 PM

Pat how many years now since your fire? Most if our tornado trees are gone but there are pockets of them still around. Trees are reminders.

Just saw on the weather channel we are in the tornado path tomorrow. Again. Hope it shifts by tomorrow.

Deb. how many sleeps or sleeplessness:) til Kenny? It would be nice if you and L/B DD could make peace.

G Jo glad you are able to get out. It's almost time for me start back. I'll be needing you. So your behaving on your own. Good girl!! Love the freighter canoe picture!

Karen. Can I borrow your Dome? Ship it priority :D

Lisa glad you are back. Did you get your FMS under control? They've been messing with my meds trying to get me better sleep. Dr thinks that's a big part of why I can't get the weight off. Still can't exercise ? Can you? Did you say you have a new kitty ?

Deb 05-29-2013 05:33 PM

Cheryl storm watch for you again tomorrow:eek:..:aprayer:

I wont hear any news because we leave first thing in the morning

isn't it nice to have Lisa back:jumpjoy:

CJMO 05-29-2013 05:37 PM

You found a way across besides the downed bridge?

Deb 05-29-2013 05:39 PM

you guys are right..would so be nice if L/B's DD and I could get along..so we struggle with it..

we are close to the same age and she is jealous and wants my L/B back with their mother....wont ever happen

im going to try my best to get along as well as I can..you never know we may move back to the lake house one day and seeing its such a small town I must live with her..the brother and the GS..all toxic I may add but some how I need to over look it and find some common ground

did I mention the ex lives in the same small town:p

so I will try:aprayer:

in October it will be 3 years that the L/B and I are together
this will be the last time I try

Cheryl~ stay safe my friend!!! :aprayer:
My Fibro is better. Like u my biggest complaint is sleep. I have noticed of late thst my legs have this feeling like they need to.move and it keeps me up. Not pain but this weird feeling. Restless leg syndrome? Is this found in other fibro patients do you know? I am only taking the cymbalta now and prolly need a bump up in dosage. Gotta get back to doc.

scrappychik 05-29-2013 06:24 PM

Mel~ the meals r pretty new to market. Honestly, I didn't read the ingred list that closely, but they taste good. I tried the crustless chix pot pie, farmhouse scramble, tex mex scramble beef merlot, and the chix broccoli Alfredo. They are expensive though, but all convenience foods are.

CJMO 05-29-2013 07:05 PM

Restless leg syndrome is common with Fibro. But it is also a side effect of Cymbalta. Glad your tummy issues are better.

Deb why are you posting pics elsewhere?

I use convenience foods too.

Going to be stormy to to tonight. Regular storms I think. LD will be scared. :eek:

scrappychik 05-29-2013 07:09 PM

Oh give LD a big squeeze for us! My mom bought her lil doggie a Thunder Jacket to wear during storms. It helps him feel safe.

A side effect of the med....ugh! I can't win it seems :(

Deb 05-29-2013 07:11 PM

one of my thangs for my 30 day challenge is no unfoods..
so I guess im out

Pat u want me to post pix here?

You guys be good while im gone right;)

heading out for some drinks and something...I cant sleep:hiya:

see you all monday

CJMO 05-29-2013 07:14 PM

Yeah you take something for the side effects of one, then something for side effects of the 2nd drug and so on. :stars::p.

I have seen Thundershirts at PSM.

Deb I know you will have a great time. Sleep well and safe trip. :heart:

scrappychik 05-29-2013 07:26 PM

Yeah it seems that way Cheryl. DH wants to move me to FL cuz I seem to feel better in warmth. The winter was awful. Is this ur experience too?

Mel~ pics? I will behave in ur absence. Have a fun safe trip and we will c u Monday :hiya:
