Hi everybody !
Today is a big day for me....actually it is a HUGE day !
30th wedding anniversary
My quit smoking day
our rejoin the gym day
So far we have done all 3 things...........the gym was a lot of fun today with hubby by my side...and we really celebrated our special day together,
The smoking thing is going to be a "one day at a time" thing......but we are now 24 hours smoke free.......so I figure it is a great start, right?
I did go ahead and take Chantix (Thanks to those of you who told me about it
) and I think I am doing pretty good so far....no nervousness...no brain fog...not grumpy...we will havew to see what day 2 brings !
Kitty.......I am so glad that you were not hurt worse in the car accident.......as Jocie said....that is the LAST thing you needed to have happen ! Was this in the new van that you just got???? Is the van OK ? Do you know what caused it to go foward? THANK GOD you had your seat belt on !
Liebly.........sounds like you are still having a pretty rough time with those feet. I am amazed that you made it to the gym but I do understand about needing it mentally !
(I hope you hubby understands it too
) So, how is the gym going for you?
I also had a home traction thing that I used quite often,,,,but mine went on top of a door....is that the kind you have? It really does help take the pressure off of your spine....feels good while you sit there.
Jocie....I think it is great that you and PaulaB are helping Jean find an active thread to get her the full support she needs,,,,,,,,,,,,,Our group was a really REALLY active one for a year...the support we all got here was amazing...and definately a big part of my success!
I think it is great that you guys still are able to devote so much time to the others here.
Jean.............Don't give up !!!!!!!!!!!!!! There will be days that you just want to QUIT AND throw away all of the good you have acomplished.........but just mark it off as a bad day....and keep moving foward. You are going to have bad days.....we have all had them......it is just part of it ! The good days far outnumber the bad so keep moving foward. You CAN do this !
And a special note to Maralian (If she shows up here today...but I'll bet she will
Hey Little one....how are you doing??? I think about you at least every other day......remembering all of the daily support you gave me in my journal. You will always hold a special place in my heart./......I hope life is being good to you....you DESERVE IT !
Tell your Mom that your "other mother" says THANKS for sharing her wonderful daughter !
OK...I will check in as time permits................It has been 5 days since I even turned the computer on ! Also....I have met my goal of 145........now I go up and down 2 to 3 pounds either way.......never more. The lowest I have ever seen on the scale is 143....now I weigh maybe once every 2 weeks or so..............if I am up past 145 I will do 2 days of PH 1 and then strict PH 2 until the extra weight is gone. I weigh daily while I am up............old habits die hard, huh?
Big big (((((((((((((((((((HUGGS)))))))))))))) to all of you guys! Talk to you soon !!!!!!!!
