thanks

You know, to be honest on the last day I was getting very tired of it

Heck, we ended up camping this weekend for the bike ride we did, and I just love it.

We actually rented a camper, and it was really nice.

Wish I had money to get another one...but....oh well.

Yea, I am trying to find a plain purple jersey..(to match my bike of course) I have a purple one but I bought some purple socks yesterday and they dont really match!! LOL

Anyway....we got in a 50 mile ride yesterday at the Hope ride...it was great.....I think I need to make some adjustments to my bike though...my back is killing me today....

Hope you guys are all having a good weekend.

i posted this on the bike thread...but most of you guys read this so I will re post it here....

Well, I am pleased to say...I made it!! I did my first 80 mile ride...the route was hilly at the first with it going from rolling hills, to downright hills. Then after the 2 sag stop, it became flat as we crossed into Kentucky across one of the bridges. Then most of Kentucky was flat, which at that point I thought I would like it to give me a good chance to rest up...but at that point the mind started playing tricks on me. When I hit 50 miles (which is all I had ever done) I think It was telling me I couldnt go any longer. I wanted to stop soooo bad. I had a little argument with myself out there, and then re grouped. I ended up going across the 2 bridge that took me back into Indiana and had just around 10 miles left to go. we battled head wind ont the flats of Kentucky as well as the last 10 miles. But...all the mattered was I MADE IT!

Very pleased...dead tired last night...but felt real good about the ride.

I also weighed this morning.....and if it hold true I will have a pretty weight loss to put on my ticker....

I have less than 1 week until I leave for Florida....YIKES...so much to do....:lol:

Hope all you guys are having a good weekend.'

COngrats HP!!!! 80 miles is soooooooooooo awesome!!!!!

Tomorrow is weigh in day and I don't think it is going to be good for me. I am bloated and irritable...so, not a good combo.

Tomorrow and then one more week of the challenge. I need to look back at what I wanted to accomplish and see if I did or not. I can't even remember what weight I was shooting for.

I know what you mean. We have made this a fun challenge, but my motive has changed as my reasons for doing the challenge at all

First of all, I have come to realize that I have this band as a tool for me to eat the proper amounts. It by no means will tell me I cant eat something or yell at me for eating a slice of pizza.

I can choose to stay at this weight forever by not changing what I put into my mouth, or I can continue to loose and get healthier by making better choices. Life is hard, and it is diffucult to always think this way and we will have the days, weeks and sometimes months where nothing is going our way on the scale or in our lives....that is when we need people in our lives to give us the quick kick in the butt....

This is what the group here has done.

I may not hit my goal weight by the 6th....but I have learned allot about myself this past few weeks...

I can do this, and it feels so dang good to push myself to the next level.

Everyone on this thread has come far. Everyone deserves a huge pat on the back and I hope we all know if anyone needs anything we are all here....

So.....whats next???????????????

We need a holiday challenge!!!!

you know...I leave for florida for a whole month in less than 5 days??????

YIKES>>>>>>>>

Thanks D for bring it and for being such a inspiration

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      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.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.
