Weight Be Gone! One Woman's journey back to good health!

Hi Everyone!  This is my Weight Be Gone Thursday for me.  If you'd like to follow me in my journey you are welcome.  If you'd like to share your own journey feel free to sign my linky below, and I'll come visit you or if you have a great diet recipe that would be appreciated very much. Thank you.  The reason I've started my journey is I had a rude awakening to the reality of life in that I'm not getting any younger, and if I still wanted to lead a fun, and  happy life I had to make  some serious changes.


This week I've had my shots, which are called Transforaminal (TFSI), and usually I could jump off that table and feel great this time something weird happened.  I get these shots on both sides, and this time my left side went bonkers and it hurt so bad I had to be wheeled to the car, and the shots hurt so bad that I needed cold packs.  The next two days I was drained and tired & then all of a sudden I started to feel a bit better and the only think my left hip still bugs me and I do have a call into him.  Anyway today I went for a check up at the Cardiologist and I weighed in.  Okay good news blood pressure is good, and that';s been good for a while.  Pulse - fine.  Weight....  250  DAMMIT!  I cannot break this ice that my weight is hovering around 250.  Well, I did find out some sorta good news a possible lack of Vitamin D, and if this is true that could be why I'm having the weakness in the bones.  Woo Hoo Could you imagine.  If I go through this routine with this Vitamin D stuff I could be strong again & boogie again & do things I use to do.  Hell, I could even go back to work!!!!  ........................ OR NOT!  hehehhe  Well, I'll keep you posted on that.

So here's my health tip of the day.  I love smoothies so here's one for ya!

Blender:  COCO -PEACH PINA COLADA
1 cup of frozen sliced peaches
1 container of nonfat pineapple=coconut yogurt
1/4 cup light coconut milk
1 tbs. flaxseed meal, like Bob's Red Mill  (this one I skip - I can't find it)

In blenderm, pouree all ingredients 30 sec. or until smooth.  Sweeten to taste. (I use Splenda) and pour!

If you'd like to share your journey of battle of the bulge feel free to sign the linky and I'll come by and see what's up or if you have any diet tips feel free to leave them in a comment.  As I've said before Weight Watchers I just don't think I could go through all that Jennifer Hudson mumbo jumbo.  It's to each their own and what they can do.  Have a great day.

Hang in there. Just by chronicling your weight loss effort, you are ahead of most people trying to diet. Uh - watch those SMOOTHIES and coconut milk though - super CALORIC! W.C.C.

Don't worry just keep doing what your doing sometimes the smallest things can help you get over that hump. Now that you have your shots you can head back to walking the dog to the park daily. I bet u both would like that

HUGS!! It can be really difficult to stay optimistic when you're trying to lose weight and deal with health issues at the same time, but hang in there. I've had mobility issues due to a major knee injury that went undiagnosed for a year, and it made me very deeply depressed to have my weight loss goals go up in smoke because I couldn't even walk. But by taking care of your health and investigating things such as the Vitamin D issue, you'll get your health back on track and then it'll get easier to do everything else, including pursuing your weight loss goals. Please keep us posted!

Losing weight and keeping the motivation to keep working at it can be hard, but don't get discouraged.
