Hey Everyone that drops by. I am home from the rehab place. My hip replacement was two week ago yesterday (Thursday) and I have to say I am doing great. Bob survived my being gone, but he was so thrilled when he saw me walk throught the door today. Still not able to drive, or bend very far, and will be going for out patient PT beginning next week.

Thanks everyone for your prayers, and well wishes, and hopefully I won't have to have anything else replaced for a long while.

Only one more day to go and then I have my hip replaced. I have so missed not being able to go to the gym. I never ever thought I'd utter such words, lol lol.

I wish everyone all the best that drop by, and thanks for all your thoughts and prayers, but I feel my recover will be a speedy one, due to I am not one that likes sitting on the side line.

Thanks to all that stop in to visit.

Thanks Julie, for the thought. I feel sure this surgery will go well due to the other two I have had went really well.

This weeks topic at Weight Watchers is going to be about putting ourselves first. Is it not funny how we can put everyone ahead of ourselves and then we get so pissed off cause we begin to feel as if we are being taken advantage of. Well guess what??? WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME FOR THAT ONE BUT OURSELVES. Now does that just not ''bite'' big time.

I was brought up in a household that was male dominated. We females in the family were considered never to have our own opinions, but were to do as the men folk said. Trust me, that just did not work well for this female at all. I was the one that bucked the system, constantly I might add. I decided at a very young age I was not to be anyone's doormat, and I tell people all the time, ''if you lay down, then you are inviting people to walk over you." At some point in our lives we have to decide, ''I am worth the respect I deserve." However, we cannot expect respect from others until we learn to respect ourselves.

Today do something to put yourself first.

Thanks so much Karen.


Yesterday when I weighed in at my meeting, there was no surprises. I was up 1.8 pounds, but that is okay. I ate on track last week, but I was not able to get in any exercise, and trust me now matter what anyone says.....activity is a must when trying to lose or maintain a weight loss....I did not allow it to get me down, and I knew I was not going to beat myself up over it. Amazing how good it feels not to be beating myself up over things I do not have any control over.

The next few day will be super busy for me. I go in on Thursday the 11th for my hip replacement, three days at the hospital then to rehab for ever how long they want to keep me there, which I am guessing will be no more than a week. I bounce back pretty quickly.

So for all those that may drop by please keep me in your thoughts and prayers cause they will be much appreciated.

I continue on this journey to better health and a better lifestyle. I continue to tell myself as I tell others, ''there is no magic bullet, no magic pills, and its never easy." Is that being negative?? I don't think so, I think it is being honest with people. I want people to realize ''you will only get the results you want by the hard work you are willing to put forth."

We get up each day, never knowing what will take place by the time the sun goes down. But the one thing we can control and that is what we put in our hands to put into our mouths.

One week to go before I get my hip replaced, and I am here to tell anyone and everyone....I AM SO READY!!!!!!!!! I can't exercise, even walk without so much pain its maddening. I'm trying very hard to keep my eating at bay, and most of that is due to just being bored stiff. I have done well with the food this week, but I don't think I will see any downward movement in the scale due to the inactivity. But, that is okay, I just have to keep reminding myself, ''this is just a temporary problem", one that will soon be fixed and with my PT and all, I will get back into the swing of better health.

We are being told we will have snow again by Saturday morning here in Kentucky, so have no clue if there will be a w.w. meeting or not. If I don't weigh in this Saturday then I won't be able to weigh in until after my surgery and when I can get back to the meetings. Can't plan on taking in a different meeting next week due to being so busy with last minute stuff before going to the hospital on the 11th. So we shall see how this all pans out.

Hang in there, and try and make it a great day.

02-02-2010....Ground Hog Day

Karen thank you so much for the prayers and good thought. I am really looking forward to getting this hip taken care of, due to it really does have me side lined, and I really do not like being on the side lines.

Not a lot going on in my life right now. I seem to have gotten the bad eating I had been doing put on the back burner again, and I'm hoping it will stay there. I did go to the gym this morning, at the time it did seem like a good idea, but the longer the day goes on, the more I can see, was not one of my smarter moments. loll.

So to all that stop by, thank you, and if you are struggling with your eating plan, just remember, you an always begin again at the very next meal.
