Got To Past The Zero Mark & Real Tink Dress!

on October 10, 2012 - 8:27pm

It's been a while since I wrote here, but I am pleased to announce that I have now gotten UNDER the Zero mark on the 5 part of the scale, now I am into the 4's! It may only be a fraction of an inch (1 lb) but it's there, I saw it, Josh, u can vouch for me! I am still trying. I have to take it kind of easy on workouts, I am at #69th one but my leg has this bruise'y stuff on it & the veins are swelled & itch, burn, hurt, & sting all at once. I have to put it up over my heart w/ a hot rag on it for 20 min. several x/day. I sat w/ them down 2 days in a row since I helped out at my Mom's mom's house she fell & now needs a lot more care. But now that I know it's not as big a job it's OK, not as scared to do it.

Still going trying 2 lose weight

on August 22, 2012 - 9:04pm

I am still trying to lose weight & look good for Josh Groban's next Portland, Oregon show! I have been struggling. I had lost 13 lbs, but then I took 5 days off for heavy deep cleaning (need to get back 2 that) & the scales moved up & scared me. So I went back to the exercises. Got the scale back down to the 5 mark but need it past the 5 mark to the left side.

Lost 10 lbs w/ Curves & took the work-outs home!

on July 7, 2012 - 11:13pm

I got a free pass for 30 days to Curves, & when I got the technique of the machines down pat I started doing it at home after my pass ended. I have lost 10 lbs, and my new mesurements go something like

Arms .Lost 1/2" off each
Bust: Lost 2.75
Waist:Lost 2.75
Abs: Gained 1" :(
Hips: Lost 6"
Thighs: Lost 2.5" off each
Final Total was 16.25 inches lost!!!

So over all it's going great, but haven't lost anymore. One of my friends from the Eagles gave me an Iso-Band, it is like they give to Home-Therapy patients for exercise, it is the wide green one, I use it almost daily but not on weekends they sayd to take a break once in a while.

I gave blood again, first time in 4 yrs!

on April 20, 2012 - 8:13am

Yesterday 4-19-2012, Thursday was the American Red Cross blood bank, I went and manage to pass the HemoGroban test for low Iron w/ 14.8%, & the Blood Pressure test w/ 110/82, the nurse said I am in great range, and it only took 4m 41s. to fill up the donation bag! I am a fast one! I did the form online and that to me is lots more comfortable than saying answers to very intimate questions out loud to a nurse (LOL!) I have evidence to tell the doc. when I go back that everyone says my blood-pressure is not high, plus she should know they tweaked the guide now it's 140/90 as the borderline. I don't thk she knows as much as she should as she wanted to put me on meds when it was barely over 83 on the bottom number.

Maca Root is helping!

on February 21, 2012 - 1:22pm

I have now been on the Maca Root vitamin, capsule, for 24 days, but after 21 days I added one capsule,, that is "standard" dose, so I had been on the low-dose to start with, so we will try this for 3 weeks, they say u can also take 2 capsules 2x/day, I'm only on 3, u can go as high as 6 capsulse if needed, but I hope I don't have to, I will give this time to work, but I told Josh before I did it. I have more energy, I have been reorganizing our front bathroom shelves in our cupboard bc I lost some special things, and happily I found them once more.
