Winners and an Update!

Hello Everyone!

Well, first, can I say that it has been quite the week.  You know how they say that it is not the trial but how you handle it?  I feel like I have truly grown this week and have learned a lot of patience.  Started with my internet and TV cable getting cut on Saturday morning, then all sorts of inconveniences with getting our geothermal installed.  No AC for 3 days now (thank goodness they installed some window units), water pressure problems (no water upstairs at all last night), no electricity for a few hours today.  I think that if this would have happened to me a few years ago I would have flipped BUT I am grateful that it did happen to me now. * I do not have a baby in diapers like I did last time our AC was out in our old house (now that was miserable).  *I know that all of this will totally be worth it when it is finished.  *What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.  

I also have started Weight Watchers again and exercising every day.  I still have my Plantar problem but I am learning how to deal with it and different ways of trying to make it better.  I actually ran 3 miles this morning in 31 minutes!  That is the longest and fastest I have ran in about 6 months or more!!  I cannot walk, BUT I did it!!  I just know that it will get easier and easier the more I push through it.  If anyone would like to join my new weight loss goal please visit me at My Pink Loser Blog or My Pink Loser Facebook Page.   I'd love to do this with YOU!

Okay, on to the winners!

  9. congrats to all the winners and also to you Robyn on your running. What a great accomplishment. I haven't ran in over 6 months and I tried to run the other day and couldn't even run 1 full mile. So great job for getting out there!

  12. Good for you Robyn! Way to go.

  13. That's awesome!!! I don't think I could even run a minute. lol! I have horrible asthma problems that prevent me from much exercise. BUT after 5 weeks off of Weight Watchers I did rejoin. I have only lost 11 pds so far this year. not great, but I had a fallback while on vacation for a few weeks. I'm trying to get back into it, but it's so hard. I follow your weight loss blog so I'll be following along with you. You've done it before so I know you can do it again! :-)

  15. Sorry about your feet. My husband had that Planter stuff and after he got fitted at Good Feet it went away. Good luck with the Weight Watchers. I'm on Jenny Craig and have lost 32 #'s - want to loose 43 more! I'm doing line dancing for my (fun) exercise.

  16. Robyn, I lost 66 pounds on Weight Watchers, I wish you much success! As far as the planter foot problem is concerned, I went to the foot doctor, got a shot of cortozone in my foot. It was painful but it sure made it easier to lose the weight.
    Congrats to the winners!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I will definately see you, my doctor just told me to loose it or shots will be in my future. Do not want that. Your right what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. May the strength be with you.
    Congratulations to the winners!! I'm so jealous ;)

  18. Congrats to the winners. Robyn I had the same problems with my foot and discovered that pilates helped it more than anything, it's totally better now.

  19. When stuff like that happens, just take a minute to think about all the people who don't have a roof over their heads, or food to feed their children, and all of your own trouble seems so inconsequential. Perspective can be a real stress-reliever!
    Good luck with your weight-loss.

  30. Congratulations to the winners. When you overcome the biggest problem, the begining, everything gets easier. This counts especially for running. I am running regularly now, but when I started it was pretty tough. I believe that you have a strong will and I wish you luck.

  31. The plantor thing can be bad. I have it and suffer every day. Get you some great insoles with a high arch, put ice on it and roll a tennis ball around on the arch that helps. or get a shot of corasone not spelled right.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I hear ya about the plantar problem. The best thing is ice it after exercising. At the end of exercising, take a can of coke/pepsi and roll your foot over the can that is put on its side. The coolness gets right in there and soothes the tendons. I hope this helps - it did for me.

  33. I wish you much encouragement in your weight loss journey, I know for myself it has been near impossible. I think it's almost like a job because it takes so much energy, not just to exercise but to shop and prepare and plan healthy meals and snacks all while taking care of a large family. (I have five kids too)It sounds like you are at a good place and have found the inner motivation (something I still lack:) Congrats to the winners and thank you Robyn for being so genersous.

  34. Robyn, is it a Plantars's wart? It grows inside.They are usually on the bottom of your foot near the heel. I had one and was miserable every time I stepped on a rock. Anyway, the doctor surgically removed. Good luck on your WW journey. I am a Lifetime Member of WW and attend meetings. Met a great bunch of ladies there over 12 years ago, and we attend the same meeting each week together, we sit together and become good friends, we go to breakfast once a month. They are what keeps me going back to the meetings.

    So good luck to you and as my little group always say, "onward and downward"! This is our motto!
