September exercise challenge?

Recommended Posts

I like the Orange team - Heba is a fighter, and she has a great attitude...she made me cry talking about her dad. Makes me miss my Dad - though he passed away when I was 9 - we were very close. ;)

my husband thinks heba is going to be a knockout once she loses a bit more - he already thinks she is so pretty & great personality.

i like both orange & red. the red team just seem like SUCH great parents and a loving couple. was neat seeing the "red" dad get pissed because he wanted that camper for his boys - i would have been pissed if the orange team didn't win & someone else did other than red.

so gadget hubby is just as addicted to BL as i am, and while he's traveling he goes to itunes and purchases the episode to download onto his laptop to view - knowing i can't hold out 2wks till he gets home to watch....

oh and the wires - he has an obsession, i mean an OBSESSION w/no wires exposed ... it's quite maddening.

sorry you lost you dad so young ebony.:cool2: i'm enjoying my dad now for the first time in my life - he's beyond type A, was strict, demanding & offered too many opinions unsolicited. being a grandp has mellowed him out & that's a good thing....specially for mom:tongue:

Every time they do a BL Couples or Family show, I've been tempted to do a tape for me and DD so we could do the show together - I'd want Jillian as my trainer, cause she's such a drill sergeant:wub:

The opportunity to have band surgery took that off the table - now I watch the show for inspiration and to see some of what they do in their workouts. They do a AWFUL lot of aerobics - more than I have time for - but they are inspirational because I also haven't seen them need plastic surgery afterwards...

All that butt-kicking activity must help them with the loose skin issues...plus, I think they are younger than I am...

Day off at the gym yesterday, but I did get my walks in. No gym tonight - have a work-related social activity, but I'll walk at lunchtime and again tomorrow. I'll be back in the gym tomorrow and will post the soreness-inducing results here (or in the October exercise challenge thread, when I find it) :cool2:

I wanted to submit me and DH too - like you LB thew that out the window. They lose so much weight so quickly...I can't imagine the emotional affects it has. We lose slowly - and I know at times mentally there is an adjustment for me. My hormones get out of wack and my mind has to catch up with my body. I still think I should shop in the women's section...Imagine losing 80 pounds in two-three months....wow!

      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.

        I feel ya.
