Finding Fairies Figure

Postby Fairie » Sun Oct 14, 2007 1:04 pm

Reading how everyone is coping with this weightloss journey we are all on has inspired me to start a journal again. I have been overweight all my life, I know the reasons why and everytime I think I'm winning the battle I sabotage myself. I put this weight on as a proctection and now I can't convince my mind I don't need to be protected anymore.

I did Sure Slim in 05 & 06 and lost almost 30 kilo's, so I know I can do it. Unfortunately due to probs with my foot and knee I have allowed it to creep back up. I damaged both knees in a car accident when I was 14, my right knee has no knee-cap which makes the excersising difficult and carrying all this weight does not help it.

I have large massive Fibryoids and the Doc say's because of the size of them I will need a Hysterectomy (sp) so I need to loose a lot of weight before then. The last op I had they had trouble waking me up so I need to loose quite a bit before, I only have till March so I have to get serious now.

I have also developed an allergy to something and have a very sore itchy rash on my arms, legs, stomach and back so I have an appointment with a skin specialist this week to find out what is causing it. It's driving me mad :twisted:

I will weigh myself on Friday and put a ticker up.

Good luck Fairie :)

You can do it! An operation is a pretty good reason to lose weight.. and with the fibroids out, you'll feel SO much better...

I hope the skin specialist can help you, itchy rashes are the worst!

I can totally relate with you about weight being a protection. I've used is as an excuse not to do things. "It's not my fault, it's the extra kilos!" Almost like those extra kilos are a separate person from me.
I call that person Bob.
You got some serious reasons to lose some weight. Both Bob and I would like to wish you well on your journey, and hope it helps you with your health problems.
p.s. Please don't tell Bob I'm trying to give him the flick. It'll make him hang on even harder...
Bye! Rissa

Thanks everyone it is great to feel apart of the forum again. I am having a couple of wines with dinner and that will be my last for awhile. I went for a 20 min walk today and that felt good. We are busy again with all the birds breeding, I am hand feeding 9 at the moment. Then with making my skin care products and selling at the Markets I'm so busy I need to structure my day to fit in excersise and have time to plan healthy meals.

Hey there fay! Surgery was also a motivator for me - you'd probably remember when I joined, just before my wisdom teeth came out and they were worried about how my weight would affect the anaesthetic.

Going in to more surgery now and they don't have a worry in the world about it - makes me far more confident
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Except for the heat today was good, it got to 30. (bring back winter) Walked to the Doc's about 30 mins there & back, frustrated that the Blood Pressure is back up again and he wants me on tablets. I know that's because I'm worring about DS who is having trouble coping at the moment, he's very depressed and has Bi-Polar. I get so annoyed with myself for worrying, he is 32 but how do you tell a mother not to worry about their kids no matter what the age. If I didn't worry so much for others I might have more energy for myself. :?

I am thinking of doing the Soup Diet I read in someone's post, I think that would be great as a detox and to get a good start.

Why does everyone have to lean on me, I need to think of myself and deal with my own issues for a change, I just don't know how to turn away. DS came in at 9am this morn just as I was going out the door for my Chiro appointment, he was in tears and said he's not coping or looking after himself. He asked me if I would make an appointment with his Doc and can I go with him.......of course I said yes. I know he is old enough and should be able to look after himself but he is so Deppressed and with his Bi-Polar I always think he will go off the rails again. I had my day all planned and I'm so busy this week I really didn't what to be trying to get him on track again but I'm a mother and I will do what needs to be done for her offspring. :roll:
Now I'll go and feed my feathered babies at least they don't give me grief. At least I haven't turned to food for comfort, I thought I would take out my frustration on the keyboard.
