Weighty issues

   I am dropping weight finally and my ankles are getting skinny. They still dent when I push on them but not so far up my leg. Going off the advair worked. Now if I can just keep from having an asthma attack life will be good. I jumped on the scale when I woke up, down 3 pounds since Monday. I don't see my lung doctor until next month so hopefully this will be OK. I feel better not retaining so much fluid.

I got up and jumped into my gym clothes but no Rick and no car. The van's fuel rail went out 2 days ago so I can't drive it and so here I sit stuck. He went to get oil for the car. I have to appologize to him for yesterday. He did have supper planned and cooked the whole thing. He has supper planned for tonight also. I get so cranky when I first get up. The stress of the last couple of weeks I guess. So I went back to my cool bedroom and did my meditation. I feel focused, relaxed and calm now. What would I do if I didn't meditate. I would be a basket case probably. That is my special pamper me thing.

The weather is hot and heavy, I hear thunder and the sky is dark and dangerous looking. I should go out to the lookout at Floyd Monument and get some pictures.                      

A lot of the women at work are on weight watchers and doing very well. I have never done that program but they showed me what books to get and they sell them on ebay for less if you get lucky with the bidding. They assure me that is all I need, plus them to advice me on how to do it. So I may. I know many of you in J-land do it successfully. There are 2 kits I am watching now. However someone said the minute you go off WW you gain the weight back, is that true or just here. Can you do WW for life? I don't eat out often, will it work that way? Should I continue with doing it my way which worked until I started the steroids? So many questions. I have more,

Why does mineral water that has trickled through mountains for centuries have a use by date?

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say "I think i'll squeeze these dangly things here and drink what comes out"?

Why is it called alcoholics anonymous when the first thing you do is stand up and say
"hi, my name's Bob. I'm an alcoholic"?

What do people in China call their good plates?

If corn oil is made from corn and vegetable oil is made from vegetables. What is baby oil made from?

Why are they called stairs inside but steps outside?


If you know the answers to any of these pressing questions leave it in the comments. I will sleep better at night I bet knowing them.

LOL i don't have any idea on the questions:) glad you are losing the water weight. i have heard weight watchers is one of the better diet plans because you use you own food. have a good evening

I like WW because I can go between two plans when I get bored with one of them.   As far as gaining it back if you stop "doing WW" will only gain it back if you go back to overeating and underexercising...even if you aren't counting points, if you eat when you are hungry and stop when you are won't gain weight.    There is a book by gwen shamblin called "the weigh down diet" that you might want to check into.

Glad you're weight is going in the right direction.  I hear WW is good.  Haven't ever been able to stick to it myself.  I don't know why.  But, lots of people do well on it.
Good luck.

Came across your journal through Deb from
and something you asked prompted me to comment.  WW is not a diet, it is a way of life.  I mean, yes, you do watch what you eat, count points, to drop the weight, but by that time you've learned what you can and shouldn't eat.  There are so many of us struggling with weight in jland, and the bottom line is that you have to make healthy eating an every day thing.  Doesn't mean you can't have a slice of chocolate cake, but don't eat the whole thing!!  Moderation and portion control are keys.  Not watching what we eat is what got us here, now its up to us to do something good for ourselves, and learn a new way of eating.  If you were already doing it your way and it was helping, before the steroids, then by all means.  Exercise is important too.  But don't we already know all that??!!  Good luck on the weight loss journey!!
