Tuesday Feb. 15!

:D How'd you do this week.
Yesterday the scale said I was up two pounds...
today I lost those two plus another. I need to get a new scale, this one
jumps around too much.

(yep, weighed myself at the same time
both days)

I'm doing terribly. I gained a couple pounds this week, so my total loss is only 3 pounds now. Part of it is that I ran out of my Indapimide (diuretic). Whenever I run out, I always gain 5 pounds. There are no refills left, but I am going to the doctor Monday. He isn't the one who prescribed it, and he is trying to find just the right blood pressure medicine for me, so there's no telling what I will end up on next! I'm also on Atenelol/something (another diuretic). Getting older is so much fun! lol Of course, the blood pressure issue is one reason why I need to lose weight.

I just can't find the time to get out of the house! I have started a "Walking Club" with my kids at school though. The ones who want to participate have an index card with their name on it. We walk around the playground perimeter during recess (we have time for about 3 or 4 laps). They get a mark on their cards each time they finish a lap. When they get up to 20 marks, I'll give them a freezer pop. This serves a few purposes. It gives me someone to walk with, it gives us a chance to really talk, it makes us all healthier, and it makes it easier to keep an eye on them because so many are walking with me.

Barb -
your "walking club" is a great idea! So many children are sedintary (sp?) at home, so it's nice they have a fun alternative at school :)

I think I'm going to suggest this at Wednesday night's PTA meeting.

Congrats to you guys for the weight loss! I know it's tough to get motivated, and I am the first person to say "let's skip the workout and go to Starbucks instead"...but for the first time in my life, I'm going and working out and sweating. I didn't even know I could sweat - I don't even get warm! This trainer has pushed me harder than I think I should be pushed, and then he pushes some more. I hate doing it, but as soon as I get home, I feel great. I'm okay weight-wise, I just want to firm up...and I want abs like Jennifer Lopez. I think I can...I think I can...I think I can...

That would be great if your school started something like that. The way I got this started was that I just started walking one day. A couple kids started walking with me, so I asked them if they would like to start a walking club. Most of the class (both of my classes) signed up. They don't all walk each time, but some have every time. I think more will start when they see them eating their freezer pops! lol
