something new


Thank you for all your encouraging and supportive feedback. You've got my heart.

Feeling much better after a weekend of just checking out. I slept most of Saturday and problem. I did go for a 3 miler on Saturday and I kicked ass on the treadclimber yesterday and today. My food wasn't stellar, I just focused on good for me foods. This morning the physical side effect were all but gone. I feel like I am coming out the other side of this hell. I really believe that sticking with the exercise (uping it really ) is what made the difference. Well that and the sleep. I had not slept well for about a week. I wake up at least 2 times a night normally, so I was getting very little good sleep. I am still alittle weepy, but feeling positive also, where Saturday it just all seemed so shitty.

I am getting a new "weigh in" weight. I am no longer going to WW meeting. I am going back to a night weigh in on Monday. Starting tonight I will weigh in with a group of friends and then we are going to decide what we want our meeting to be like. I am quite excited about saving $50 something a month. I am not really counting points, so I am really just going for the face to face accountability I feel I need right now. I like the meetings too.

So I am weighing in on a new scale......cut to this evening..... the new scale was kind and told me 216 even. so that's a loss of like .8 lbs. I forgot to look at what I weighed last week. I think that's a positive

The new meeting was fun. We are going to learn to do water aerobics via youtube in the hosts backyard nice! I think it will be great. The one hubs that is there is totally into the "mind game" aspect of looosing weight. He reminds me of my dad....thinks he knows it all (my sister's laughing at this) We will share emails and fun stuff too. Encouragment, where to find the cheapest groceries. They offered their pool 3 nights a week for the aerobics.

I am super tired but I wanted to share 2 things with you

#1- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Love this book. I haven't liked a story this much in a long time. Has anyone else read it?

#2- The new Rob Thomas this CD!! Is anyone else crazy about this CD or am I just an old fart that doesn't know music anymore??

I have had a long, tiring, day. I am going to bed and watch some mindless TV......gee, how about the ....Keep the mood and the food real.....or as Roxie says "get your head right and your ass will follow."


  1. What an awesome idea to exercise in your friends pool. It's great that you have someone to do it with. Keep up the great work.

  2. Hi Dana, I've missed ya!!! Just catching up on your posts. Glad you're doing ok. Loved the pictures of the grand kids and you *smile*. Hope you have a great week. You are doing so well with your weight, congrats. You'll be passing me soon if I'm not careful lol.

  3. Hiya! 216 is awesome, I cannot wait to get there! Congrats, and I havent heard Rob Thomas' new cd, but he never disappoints!

  4. I have been thinking about you and wondering how you were getting on. Hopefully you are past the worst of the withdrawal now.

    The new weight loss club sounds brilliant! And congrats on your new all time low - so close, so close...

    Well done on everything!

  5. glad youre doing so well AND made time to post about it for us.
    I did lots of water workouts with my clients when I was a trainer--its amazing how you (one :)) dont sweat and yet it is a GREAT cardio and 'resistance' workout.


    speaking of working out----time for mine!

  6. Love the weight loss club idea--and the "get your head right" saying. Very cute! Hope you have a great day tomorrow. Blessings--Bonnie

  7. Glad you're doing better!

    Your new weight-loss group sounds FUN!!! I am excited for you and I'll admit, a bit envious of the camaraderie you will get!

  8. Congrats on getting over the hump of your meds withdrawl. That can be a very slippery slope. But, you sound better via your blog, so Be the Blog.

  9. I think that's great that you're getting together with friends. I think part of what makes WW work is the accountability of going to a meeting each week. If you're like me, you kind of already know what you need to do to lose weight. Having your friends there to cheer you on will help you reach your goals!

  10. So glad you're doing better and the fog is lifting. Sleep is underrated.

    Doing exercise with your friends sounds like so much fun - not to mention having company along the way to motivate and encourage.

  11. Glad you are feeling more positive, missus!! *hugs*

    i like your new weigh in group immensely. im scared to do water aerobics. and to saving all those dollars. *high fives* sounds like a good thing all around.

    p.s i only use 'babes' for the best peeps.

  12. hey what a way to lose weight with friends... thats super... wish you lots of luck!

  13. This is so good to read. I'm glad you are feeling better. Your group sounds so fun!

  14. You are one cool blogger - all the best to you - all the time! My thoughts are with you.


Tell me what you think!
