Gday, I do a combination of walking outdoors and Leslie Sansone "Walk away the pounds" 3 mile walk etc. She is very upbeat and chirpy.

I have MS, so I do the best that I can and as much as I can. I usually do 5 days per week. I have days when I feel so weak and shakey that it is hard, but I force myself. Other days I feel strong and well. This is the nature of this disease.

You all are going great guns.:clap2: Keep it up bandsters! Susannah

hi Susannah. I have Lupus. I know what you mean about good days bad days. I developed a little stretching routine for myslef for bad days, just so I'm doing something. If I don't talk myself out of doing it, it feels good.....

Hi everybody-I keep thinking about the people I know who never miss a day at the gym. Somehow they prioritize it and sort of fit the rest of the day in, but exercise comes first. I guess putting ourselves and our health first takes some practice.....

Betsyjane,

i try to get in 6 days a week, but it's just not happening this week. i skipped Wednesday and looks like i'm going to skip today as well. i do feel bad about it though, does that make up for it?? :)

Yesterday i worked w/ my trainer for about 45 minutes.

How many calories are burned by feeling bad about not exercising? I'm sure that counts for something, don't you think?

lol ... somehow i doubt that! i did fidget quite a lot today. i read somewhere (no idea where but it was recent) that you can burn up to 300 cals a day by fidgeting - so that's what i did ...

I think crunches really help, if you spend the whole exercise concentrating on using just your abs to do the exercise. It's really easy for your body to cheat and use other muscles or momentum. I like doing crunches on an exercise ball at home since it protects your back.

My plan is to get all the cardio done now. Then by July 1st--add in the weight lifting....This way...12 weeks of cardio should have done well.....At least this is my plan. I am now starting to get that 3 to 5 miles in a day. Today (5/19/07)--a day that was over 8.5 miles....Oh Lord...am I tired...

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
