Checkin In

Postby GeorgiaGirl » May 19th, 2006, 6:37 am

Good Morning, All - I wanted to check back in and be accountable. Got off plan for 2 days - proving to myself that MF is NOT what is causing me to have vertigo. Still not sure what it is, but I'm back on program this morning. Got my 2nd order yesterday, included soups, oatmeal and RTD in this one. The first was strictly shakes and bars - not enough variety for me. The Oatmeal is good!
All of you are such an inspiration! DeDe - we're the same height and have about the same goal. I would love to have a buddy to go through this journey with - anybody??
I have to admit I'm still thinking to myself that it won't work for me - I've failed so many times but I sure would like to prove myself wrong! The weight that I've lost was with WW over 2 years and just have been stuck - so I decided to try this.
Have a great day!
Joy

As long as you stay on the plan, there is no reason why this should not work for you! Good luck!

Hi!

Take it one day at a time and remember YOU CAN DO IT! Keep posting if you feel tempted to cheat. We will talk you down. :D

Keep with the program and you will lose the weight.

Have you gone to the doctor to be checked for an ear infection or anything? That can cause some wicked vertigo! Some electrolyte imbalances can cause dizziness and the like as well. A doctor could determine that with a blood test. I hope you start to feel better soon!

Hi Joy!

I seem to be following Sarya around the boards tonight, but I completely agree with her that you should get checked out to see if you have an ear infection of an electrylyte imbalance!

Glad you're back on the program though. We're here if you need us!

Also, PM/E-mail/IM me ANY TIME! I love buddies!

Hi Lori, it is great that you hopped back on the plan. But, I totally agree with Sarya, that you should inform your doctor of your vertigo problem. I would think that he would draw a complete serum panel to be sure that everything is normal. Please take care of yourself and check it out. :)

"Positive mindsets yield positive results", so always have faith in yourself that you can win the weight loss battle! You have successfully done it before. Much success is wished for you! ;)

Hi Georgia girl! I'm looking for a buddy also (not to say that you ALL aren't my weight loss buddies). But it helps sometimes to see someone who is about the same weight/height and has about the same to lose. It gives us something to compare ourselves to. So how bout it? On your mark, get set, go!!! :D

Hey Georgiagirl,
I understand that you are not sure this is gonna work, I was the same way. Well let me tell you something...I have been on the scale twice in the last week...my FIRST week mind you...and it has moved in the right direction both times. I will post a weigh in tomorrow but it DOES work.
Today at work this young...and I mean young, like 22 to 25 young guy walked by me and was totally checking me out. I was talkin gto a friend and I lost my words, I felt like a kid.
I know I have lots to loose but MAN that was cool :)
You will get there as long as you take yourself there.
