Thank you Dr John!
Get walking Jan, we're watching. Cool weather is coming so our red boas will feel good! GC

:) Thank you Jan, for the update and the link here! And also wanted to thank you all for so much support through emails when we had no place to go. I think I will feel right at home here too.:)
I cannot walk long, maybe ten minutes top right now, standing or walking. But I will sure get on my staionary bike again.
Now you all might hate me. BUT, my problem is gain weight. Last year at this time I was only 104, and I am almost 5'7. I have an illness that my intestines see food as the enemy. But, I am doing GREAT at gaining gain weight. I am up to 130 pounds now. As I am in remission. Thank GOD.
For me, it is about building muscle tone. And that I have none, zero, zip. I seen and heard about all the fun you all have here, and would really like to join you all.
I do need tips how to build muscle ton and the like. I feel that is important for me.
Like right now, since my neck has been hurting so bad. And I have to hold my neck up, or put my brace on, I have lost so much muscles in my neck. Because I baby it so much.
I hope you let me be part of this wonderful group. As you are all my friends here.
Love to you,

Welcome Megs, I will give you all the weight you want. I got plenty to share.
For a while i had so much nausea that I was losing weight real easy and now it is gone. It must be really hard when you have your body rejecting food.
When I married 43 yrs ago I weighed 118! Well, didn't take many years before I was much bigger! :D
We will cheer you on when you gain weight and you can cheer for us when we lose. Hugs, GC

:) Thanks Jan for letting me know that we have a new home :)
I look forward to our chats and jokes and the whole works. You girls are live wires and keep me going.
Hi Nance, Jan, Curious, slogo, Fancylady, MeganLyn!!
Fancylady hope you're feeling better!! I'm sure it will take time to feel new again.

My step-daughter's best friend is a personal trainer so I ran your issue past her and guess what she suggested? That you get a personal trainer. HA! A fibro moment. I don't remember talking to you about physical therapy but if your insurance covers it, that would be one consideration. Yoga classes, (which I used to love but can no longer handle) would be another and you can probably get self help Yoga books/videos from your friendly home town library. :p
I am so happy that you are in remission! That is great news.
QUESTION FOR EVERYONE: WHY DO THEY CALL "WEIGHT LOSS" WHEN WE FIND UNWANTED POUNDS?
Hugs and skinny kisses to all,

Hi Jan, Megs. Gaye, Lynn, Nancy and Consider this,
Not a peep out of you all today. What is going on. Actually it is a beautiful day outside and I don't blame you.I am in good shape today, yesterday I wasn't.
Are we going on a virtual walk tomorrow or wait till Monday. Even If it is a short walk that is better than none. I can't walk long either, but doc said t walk, so I am starting tonight outside. Nice little strole around my beach. ha I want to loose at least 30 more pounds. How about the rest of you?
09-15-2006, 05:15 PM
I'm here and so far so good I haven't done to badly today. Doc put me on Welbutrin (generic) so I will see how that goes. Gave me some hydrocodone too. Thank goodness! She said the wellbutrin doesn't cause weight gain so maybe it will be OK. Wonder if it could actually help me losehimmmmmm?
Billie, i'm glad you're better today! Enjoy that walk.
Hi back, Lynn52!
We are going to lose that weight,
we are all going to look GREAT!
We'll all support each other,

Love the cheer, slogo!

I'm sitting here eating some Chex Mix. I wonder how many calorlies the pk. has? I went to town today for my first outing and got some ice cream. Low cal, ok. I've got to learn portion size all over again.
People says I have lost weight, but I doubt it. I was discouraged last timeI weighed. I want to be active and I just can't. The pain starts up. dread Monday. Going to an invasive surgeon. I looked it up and still don't know.
Gaye that's good cheering, maybe you should be our new head cheerleader. I couldn't write something like that at all. Does anyone know if we are still called Babe's?
Well I need to pick up some things. Having some company soon. They won't stay long, so I can come back after supper.

Once a Babe, always a Babe. And to the newcomers, (who we LOVE having :p ) all you have to do to become a Babe (or a Dude if you are male and can handle a thread with so many Babes!) is to join in. Oh, and ANYONE can start the daily Roll Call. I guess the early bird gets the call :rolleyes: .
Billie - Chex Mix is my very favorite snack food but I don't know how many calories either. Probably a lot. Everything I like has a lot.
Gaye - Great Cheer. Did you have your Pom Poms going while you wrote to give you encouragement?
Consider This - Thx for the hugs. I needed some.
Lynners and Megs - I was/am 5'8" and weighed 105 when I was dating my husband. In college, I bought clothing in the girls section, size 14-16 girls. Now I'm 14-16 (mainly 16) in womens. But it was hard being so thin. I know what it's like Megs. But 130 is perfect - good girl.
Gotta go - nap time...

I am sitting here reading some of the old posts smiling. Think I needed to do this today and enjoy the friendship this forum has provided and is STILL providing. :grouphug:
Have a good day everyone! :circlelove:
I guess I am slow this morning...can't figure out this thread...I see new folks here ...how did the find us?
again...it is mardi gras ...
heading off to the parades and frolic!
02-20-2007, 03:39 PM
I'm so sorry Bizi, I bumped this up from way back at the beginning of this forum. Didn't mean to confuse anybody else...me I am already confused, :Scratch-Head: stay that way. LOL. I think it is my age showing and maybe from a year or so of having to take neurontin, before my C-Spine surgery. :hug:
too many parades!
