Oh Suzzie, how awful - there is nothing more debilitating than back pain! I do hope that your doctor gets on top of things very quickly...I know how intensly frustrating it can be.

A small chocolate bar every now and again is not a sin, in fact I think it is a must! We must be first and foremost "normal" in this journey...if we deprive ourselves completely, then what sort of life are we leading....a miserable one. The key though, is that it is a rare treat!

Do not beat yourself up about it, Suzzie....we are all here to support you. If you can, try some swimming or even walking in a warm pool.....great for back pain!

Our thoughts are with you...

?? Hi guys just checking in ..
Am not a happy chappy these days
an old back injury has flared up and i am in chronic pain all the time !
years ago i damaged the L5S1 disc in my lower back and now it looks like i have an impringed nerve root to the left leg
So i am struggling big time to stay in control as depression takes hold i can not exercise
i am not sleeping and am on a cocktail of pain killers and anti inflamitorys ..
DR wants me to go and have a CT scan so am booked in for that next week .
I sat and ate a small bar of chocolate tonight made me feel sick but i still ate it ..
Tomorrow i am going to try to get on top of it but i am so sleep deprived its not funny
And i can not afford to take time of work so have to still get up at 6am and go to work i am on seven straight this week so thats a killer for me!! Ok i have got it out of my system i just needed to vent a bit and i know you guys will support me and encourage me to stay strong and i really need that at the moment .....Cheers suzzie ......

Two litres of water is the recommended amount...I however often struggle to reach that...depends on how much exercise I am doing...I can always drink more water when I am exercising than when I am not...it just slides through my band when I am active, and I have to sip slowly when I am not. Go figure...

Thanks guys
I will defiantly try less carbs and i have just changed in the last 2 days my gym workouts. Maybe less carbs might help cross fingers.
Thankyou again
one more question how much water should i have in a day?

Really good advice Beth. Between the different type of exercise, much less carbs (20 to 40g a day if possible), and more protein you should be able to trick your body into giving up the kgs. Also remember that the 5 days a week at the gym will be adding muscle (which weighs more than fat), so you'll be smaller and look kilos lighter to everyone else.

Sammy,

All I can suggest exercise wise, is do something you haven't done before...try some different type of cardio exercise to really get your heart rate up into the fat burning zone. I know that you are going to the gym 5 days a week, but are you always doing the same thing? try something out of the ordinary and keep going until you feel you just can't do anymore!

I use a variety of things....especially my Wii - I have a program called Wii Sports Active 2...it is like a personal trainer, and really gives a great workout - you target cardio, upper body, lower body, core (that's what works for the tummy!), fitness, weights...it is a different workout every time and I find it great. I lost 6kg in 10 days when I first started using it! Now I use it 3-4 times a week and also use a cross trainer, a reclining bike and a treadmill.

Lay off the carbs for a while too...really cut down as well.

Congrats at getting within 4 kg of goal and more congrats on your wedding!

Hi guys
i need some help. My wedding is only 3 weeks away i and i still have about 4kg to go till my goal weight, and its just not budging. I have been going to to gym 5 times a week, watching what i am eating and drinking about 1.5L of water a day. I need some words of wisdom on how to lose this last bit. I know i have done well to have already got this far but it is my wedding and i want to be there at 65kg.
anyones sugestions would be great.
p.s i still have a lot of belly so some tummy excercises that work would be good.

Have to be honest, as we have so many ( big blended family with foster kids as well....) sometimes I just have to say 'no' to them staying, I work long hours, on call 24/7 and often feel like the parents do the dump and run, we even get their pets staying.......hard especially when the kids will not sleep through a night and worse when they sleep in your bed......do love them all.......lol

Sammy every bride is beautiful, but you are going to be a stunner! Are you having a traditional wedding or something different?

Beth, I love reading your happy bits, they are like affirmations :) but could you just remind me again, what's a belt?

Suzzie,

Great to hear from you! I am so sorry to hear family has been affected by the quake...what a devastation. Thanks be that they are all physically OK...material things can be replaced, but loved ones cannot.

Congratulations to both you and your husband. Believe me I do know how fantastic you feel, cos I do too! My only regret is not doing this YEARS ago. I feel I have wasted so much of my life being FAT!!!

I am determined to make up for it though! I love clothes shopping. I bought a pair of size 14 shorts a little while ago, and now I have to wear a belt with them cos they are loose around the top!!! OMG, who'd have ever thought it???? Less than one year ago I was a Size 24-26!!!!! I am currently in a 14 bottom, 16 top. I am ecstatic!!!! I feel so well, can cross my legs comfortably, feel toned, my handbag never falls off my slopy shoulders anymore. What a hoot to have baggy clothes cos I keep losing weight!!!!

I love it!!! Still have problems with the head though, adjusting to the fact I am not obese anymore (according to the charts, I am 'merely' overweight). I can remember less than 12 months ago being horribly daunted by the fact that I needed to lose at least 50 kg, thinking that I would NEVER be able to do it. I now have only about 11 kg left to lose. I found my magic tool in the band. I have not regretted my decision to have it for one millisecond!!!

Please keep in touch! Love to hear how you are going!

Suzzie, congratulations on the weight loss! And to your husband :)

I'm so sorry for you as a New Zealander, it is just devastating news with 200 presumed gone now. In such a small population this will directly affect a lot of people. Wonderful news about your family though.

Keep up the good work with your weight loss, you deserve the results :)

Hello Vogette ! just popped in to update .
Wednesday i finally go for a fill its been 5 long months but i have come through it unharmed .
as of this morning i weigh 85.6 kilos so in 5 months i have lost 9.4 kilo's
i am so proud of myself i could bust..
Hubby has done just as good he to weighs 85 kilos but in 5 months he has lost 11 kilos !
we are both feeling amazing wearing nice clothes and getting so many comments on our weight loss.
I know i need a fill because i can chug down a glass of water in seconds and eat any thing i want and i mean anything
there has been a lot of will power happening here lol..
These last few days have been hard as i have had a lot of stress with my home country in disppear
family members homeless but safe we went through a 24hr period of not knowing what was happening to them !
But please to say all is well some homes have been lost but no life's with in our family !
I can only remember one earth quake when i was a child and what i remember about that one is bad enough.
so guys that is my update ! i hope everyone is doing well and i wish you all the best on this amazing journey .
CHEERS SUZZIE....
Smile
