Of course, I am supposed to drink a lot of water, which helps with weight too.

good for you, barb!
i have a small gallstone. ouch! they decided not to remove my gallbladder, maybe because when they said they might take it out, i said, 'the HE*L you are!' and gave them one of those 'oh, don't you EVEN GO there!' looks and uttered the oh-so-classic bitter luvs-laugh.
a girl i was in the hospital with had kidney stones and i remember her just weeping due to the pain. she showed me her urine one day and it was bright red. i was so scared for her, but at least she was in a medical setting where doctors were at all times in case something went really wrong.
get well soon, barb. i'll be thinking of you.

Thanks Luvs, I appreciate that. And if you need your gallbladder out, do it! My daughter (25 now) had to have hers removed 2 years ago, and she recovered very quickly. They use a less invasive surgery now than they used to.

your girl is just my age, barb!
if they would do it under conscious sedation, i'd get it removed. i'm terrified of general anesthesia. they couldn't pull my Grandma out of it one time. eventually they did, though, whew!

Middie, here's what's up....
As for the water, of course, keep it up, but try a different brand. Really! There are so many types out there, and they do taste differently. One of my favorite clean tasting ones is the place outside the grocery store where you fill your own for a quarter a gallon.
That will get you to want to drink it more.

Now, on to your dilema -
The trainer I had told me that if you exercise the same way, regularly, all is well, till you hit about the 6 week mark. At that point, your body is used to doing those particular motions, and taking that kind of weight on. He suggested that after 6 weeks, you change up your typical workout, for a different type, and do this every 6 weeks.
Also, he put me on a regimen where I have 3 different workouts and each day I do a different one. This way, you get really great results. Really!
I'm ready for my next change, and I'm almost thinking I need to get back and have him train me another month.

Also - the only thing you want to stay with regularly.....AB mat exercises~!
(I believe they're in this thread, early on)

I had my gall bladder removed, you can't have it done under concious sedation, coz there is too much work for them to do whilst they're in there!!! I didn't have the modern procedure coz I was too fat, they tried, but then converted the operation into the old fashioned way. I hurt for a few weeks afterwards but nothing compared to how the gall bladder pain hurt!!! 6 years on, and I have never had any complications (I do have a rather impressive scar, which you don't get with the modern method)

Well, I haven't posted in here about my weight, but, I thought maybe if I start now, while I'm in the race with nephew in law and now niece, it'll keep me going too. I lost 3 lbs in the last week. I can't wait until I can total it up and it be the 4o that I need to lose in all. What would be good to do with fresh peaches as far as keeping them low cal? Just by themselves? I know that they are still sweet, but, I can't eat a lot of fruits because I don't have a taste for them except apples and they are getting old

Weigh in? LOL! No comment. Maybe if I gave up drinking, eating late, clubbing, junk food, fast food. Oh well. C'est la vie!

Texas, this is the perfect place! Hey, we'll even get you motivated more than you want to be, I bet!!!
As for the peaches, - cut them into slices, place in a bowl and sprinkle them with a little cinnamon. If you want it to be a dessert, add a bit of fat free cool whip. (and when I say bit, I mean 1 Tbsp, since you don't want to go crazy with the sugar)

Fresh apples peeled, cored and sliced can be microwaved with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and lemon juice for a great applesauce. Just keep an eye on 'em, and mash them when they're really soft. You can also add pears to this, or do the pears on their own.
