Member Confessions Showing 1 - 5 of 60
I was supposed to be training for a 10k in October. I'd done the first week of couch to 5k. Now, after a visit to the doctor about a sore breast, I am not allowed to run for two weeks, minimum, while we play the elimination game to figure out what is up. And I need minor surgery on my foot that will affect my comfort level for up to two months. It doesn't leave me enough time to train, given I can barely run for a minute. Guess it will be next year, now :(
I have been tired for months. I want to move. I can feel my muscles eagerly waiting the morning jog that they got used to, but I just can't. My mind is so fatigued that I feel I need the extra hour of sleep. With 2 special needs kids, school work, some issues with my health, Im just feeling drained! I really need this 4 day snow holiday coming up in 9 days...
I had the Implanon inserted on Wednesday. I couldnt even tie my own hair that night! Ouch! The bruising wasnt that bad last time I checked the dressing, but when I took it off last night, it had gone purple and yellow with a really cool pattern. I guess I did too much with it yesterday :/
This time last year I was getting all excited for a few of the regulars that had reached their goal weights, and made the decision to finally get my arse into gear and drop all this excess weight. I have now just gotten back into the swing of things and lost 2.1kgs of the 5 Ive put on since then. I feel like a disappointment to all those that encouraged me, because I didnt work hard enough to reach my goals for the year. Lets hope I dont drop the ball again and have to come back here with a similar confession this time next year!
We are renewing our vows at the 5 year mark. Not because we are gift grabbers, because we will be telling the guests not to bring one, but because we want to. It's about the only way we will get both sides of the family together, my husband and I have been through alot since we got married and our first wedding was ruined by a couple of selfish assholes who thought they were more important. I did everything the way Mum and MIL wanted it last time, but not this time! It will be what we want it to be- small sophisticated lunch with a max of 20 people at a lodge in the mountains.
I have been getting distracted by decorating for Christmas, cleaning up and feeding the kids etc that I haven't really been eating. I'm averaging one meal a day. Maybe 500cal if I am lucky, plus a few coffees. I know it's bad, but when I see downward movement on the scales after weeks of 'sensible' eating, I find it hard to convince myself to eat more.
Spent 3 hours in emergency with my 5 year old this afternoon. Presented with signs of appendicitis, but not enough signs to warrant the surgery. 8 hours after initial signs of pain, he is still in pain, still exhibiting signs, but he is asleep. Back in tomorrow morning to see if we can figure this out. My little brother nearly died two years ago because of an appendectomy gone wrong. I am terrified!
Some days I wonder what the plan is for me.. If all the effort I put in to everything now will actually pay off in 20, 40 even 50 years. Will any of what I have done matter then? Will anyone remember the overweight mum who had no social life? The mum who went back to Uni to get her teaching degree at 23? Or will I just end up "C's Mum".....
I was one of those 'popular, hot girls' in highschool. I had clear skin, beautiful hair, and an hourglass figure to die for, I knew nearly everyone at school and spent alot of time on social engagements. I never said a bad word about ANYONE outloud. You know what? If you were to look at my FB, you would see that Ive gained a good 60kgs in the 5yrs Ive been out of school. I KNOW Im fat now and have no social life, and that Im not what I used to be. I wouldnt need you snickering about it behind my back about it. I don't understand what justification that would be for you.
I believe anyone over the age of consent should be able to marry who they love. I believe as long as your child is happy and healthy you can parent/discipline/feed any way you see fit. I personally don't find women under a size AU14 sexually attractive, but I prefer my men to have an ectomorph shape. I prefer wedges because I can walk in them. I believe that the SAHP should do atleast 70% of the household jobs. I think it is ridiculous to spend large amounts of money on clothes. I think a lot of step parents suck because they are jealous that someone had their DH first. Did I cover it all? lol
I wish I had someone to talk to that actually understood! I am more than half way through this term (Uni) and I'm still not "into it". I can't get in the groove of studying when I need to, I'm falling more and more behind and I don't care enough to fix it. I think I need to take a Uni break/ maybe the rest of the year. But I just came off break 8 wks ago, and I have a lot of pressure to finish on time so that I can be the main income earner (and earn double what H is earning now) and H can persue his dream. I just feel like I'm not being a good enough mum/wife when I am doing school work..
I am getting a tattoo on my back in a month. I need to find some tops that will show off my tat (open back) but have sleeves due to the issues I have with my upper arms (I have a skin condition that causes enlarged, red pores on my upper arms (not blackheads or pimples) that embarrasses me).
Has anyone got any experience with herbal remedies to cope with mild depression? I'm thinking of going the herbal route because the last depression meds made me completely numb, like I was wrapped in cotton wool, but not sure if it will actually help at all...
My inlaws suck so much, a few of them actually made cash bets AT our wedding reception on how long our marriage would last. The max I overheard was a year. We will be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary in August.
