Just to cap off my earlier blogs....The scale has new batteries and is working again.....and I'm still the same weight i was before it went wacko. So no gains; no losses. The news could be worse I guess....but I would like to know why I haven't lost any weight. I've been perfect on the diet. I guess my body is just being obstinate. I will focus on the goal of getting healthier and not worry so much about the weight. I've heard that that switch in perspective is pretty efficient in supercharging the weight loss.

Today, honestly, I do NOT feel like cooking a nutritarian dinner. I'm too tired. Too frustrated. Too stressed to feel like cooking at all. So we are eating leftover soup and a salad. I may get creative and try to make the salad more interesting. But right now I do not feel creative. Nor do I really feel hungry. But I know soon my husband and daughter will be looking for something. I think for myself I just may make a smoothie and not worry about cooking my own dinner. Because my husband is diabetic a smoothie won't cut it for his dinner Bummer. Wish he could make his own danged salad. ..but that ain't happening.

So much for being tired. My daughter wants to go for a walk. Which I really should do ....so Off I go.

    Hang in there, never give up. It will start going in the right direction again as long as you don't derail. Salads you want to be creative with them, but nine will get you ten that picky eating husband of yours wouldn't like them anyway :P. My current favorite is a kit -Sweet Kale veggie salad -why make it when it comes prepackaged? Its a huge bag for only $5. Has fruit and seeds, poppyseed dressing and a good mix of crunchy veggies. I add walnuts pieces, apple, and daikon (white radish) for an extra boost and it goes even farther.
    Glad you have that daughter of yours there to help motivate you and keep you moving!
    Wishing you a warm sunny week so you can get out and enjoy the weather more!

    If you just hang in there with the weight being the same, all of a sudden it'll start melting off. You could take your measurements too and I bet you've lost inches!! Hopefully your walk can revive you some. That would feel so good with walking outside! I've mainly been sticking with my recumbent bike because of my right Osteo knee. It really can get a hurting when I really get going with walking. I love to walk though. It feels so good, just not the knee! Get feeling better! emoticon Karen emoticon

    That's good news Cyn . No weight gain .. You know as well as I do that it is very hard to lose weight whilst on cortisone. But having said that . We can still do it . Walking Is a excellent exercise and I lost most of my weight by just walking and eating healthy.
    Once I was down to a reasonable size ( I weighed in at 148 kilos ) this being well over 300 lbs.
    I started pool walking, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon then swimming.
    Now mostly I walk and use my recumberant bike.
    You can do this my dear friend .. I know you can xxx much love Susie xxx
