Great job, ladies!

SB, I understand your frustration. Would that my mom could have gone into assisted living following her hospital discharge. You are an angel to do so much!

I had my 4th swimming lesson tonight. All is going well. Still working on the breathing correctly. I was doing better but tonight just seemed to have more anxiety. talked with instructor & she asked what was going on. I told her about mom living here, we did some unique stetches & deep breathing, I was amazed what a difference it made. Taking a break from lessons for a couple of weeks until we get things figured out here. I will continue to practice. Weight at a standstill now. Still exercising & trying to eat right but no change in the weight. To busy making sure everyone's needs are met lately.

Please take care of yourself, SB. Sure hoping for the best for you and your family!

Maintainin' is better than gainin'!

Do take some time for yourself, you will be better equipped to take care of others!

You done good! Excellent! I learned to swim (and skate) almost about the same time I learned to walk, so I can't really get my head around "pool anxiety." However, the little boy I am teaching to swim has "pool anxiety." He "lost" his suit during swimming lessons and everyone laughed. He's very sensitive. He loves that when we go to D**'s apartment to swim, we have the pool to ourselves. The family has a trip booked for FL the end of February. I hope to get the little lad comfortable in the water so he can enjoy the hotel pool while they are there.

I'm down another 3 pounds on weigh-in yesterday. I need to up my calories, I'm losing too fast for my comfort. I want to stick to 2 pounds a week, at this rate I am having problems with my blood pressure going too low and my body isn't adapting to the lower weight like it should.

Oh boy. Hope you can get things under control, PF.

This is why I don't own a scale and I turn my back when I get weighed at my doctor's office. I go by if my clothes fit/are too tight. I don't want to get fixated on how much I weigh. I have very large bones, I weigh a lot for a person who wears the size of clothes I wear.
