I have been under a lot of stress with selling our house, having to find a place to rent (because our house sold so quickly), finding new office space for our business, moving to a new community and purchasing a new place, plus some personal stuff going on in my life - I need to have surgery in mid-January, among other things.

Needless to say, I have been less than compliant.  I need to get back on track and think this is the perfect time.  Is there anyone else out there who has gotten off track and is looking to find support?  If so, I am hoping we can use this thread as a support mechanism for one another.

My New Year's resolution is to get back on track and find a balance between the Hunter and Explorer diets, beginning January 2nd.  This might be difficult during my surgery and recovery, but I believe that eating right prior to surgery will speed my recovery.  I need to get back out and exercise as well, which will help control my blood pressure.  Otherwise, I will have to go on medication.  So there you have it - diet and exercise!

Been there, done that Patty. We moved our family this year from Minnesota to Maryland and had 2 house-hunting trips before the move, and yes I struggled too when I was traveling and not eating my home cooked meals. There was only so much I could do to remain compliant, but if I had to do it differently, I probably would have selected better supplements to travel with to keep my immune system strong. When we did actually move, I developed a pretty bad cold and sinus infection upon moving in that took a little while to clear up.

There have been some other threads about Vitamin D's positive effect on the immune system, particularly this time of year, so I would recommend supplementing with D3. I'm not sure what other supplements are best for type O's but you're right in saying that you should be exercising frequently.

Although on the monthly Fresh Start threads, we generally get off topic and all over the place
with blogging, but it serves a huge purpose because it does keep us focused....And when I mean
focused, what might happen is that someone starts talking about exercise and then someone
else feels inspired.....and maybe someone will share what type of exercise they're doing....or
someone might share what they're baking......and we might morph into recipe discussions....
or simply just being supportive of one another.  It's a very interesting group and many of us
post daily.  You are more than welcome to join us Patty.  There is also another FS thread that
runs sometimes....It was a weekly thread and perhaps more food compliant focused.  Either
way, just having a supportive group....a place to come daily and share what you've eaten...
you might be inspired to keep coming back and feeling accountable.  That's my primary reason
for doing this (except to add that I love the people who post on that thread and look forward to
them sharing things about their lives, whether it be a food struggle, or something unrelated to
the diet).  I like to feel accountable....so I know when I need to exercise if I wake up in the morning and say that to others that I'm more likely to want to come back and report that I've
done it..

Once again, you're welcome to come join us and be part of our every day chats...Many helpful
supportive people will make you feel "at home"....me included!

Thank C Sharp and Chloe.  I will check it out starting in January.  I am usually put off by the number of posts if one comes in mid month.  I have not been on the forum much lately since this past summer, when we were getting our house ready to sell.  My life has been a whirl wind of activity, given that from the day we put our house on the market to the day we closed it was 55 days and during that time, we needed to find a place to rent, find a place for our office and find a place to buy!

I've never been a big fan of "New Year's Resolutions." When I'm ready to make a positive change in my life, why wait for January? Every day I try my best to take proper care of myself, though I often do fall short.

I personally like the weekly FS threads for "being accountable with diet and exercise" and the monthly FS threads for random chatting about our lives (AKA emotional support and maintaining a sense of community.)

The weekly threads went on for a while but then we all got too busy and forgot. How about we start one on January 2nd, for the week of the 2nd-7th (starting on Wednesday and ending on Sunday) and then we resume Monday-Sunday weekly threads from that point on?

I totally understand about the idea of "no time like the present to make changes" but since the new year is upon us, I thought this might be a good place to make a commitment again.  Happy New Year and be safe tonight!

I start my NEW day every day.. in fact EVERY minute in which I struggle with foods.. so my resolution for the new year is not food.. (started a new way of eating today for 2 weeks)

Yet, I wish to focus on getting two new projects off the ground this YEAR! and get two sets of paper work done.. this year.. They are taking up space on my desk for all to long...

to keep me honest.. here are quoted words meanings for ME to remind me..

Volunteer work:
Showcase windows in town, decorate them so they look occupied. Empty my garage out with things I collected last year for this.

Computer work:
Start a all new project via computer. and repair all my old websites..

Paperwork:  Lardelli, Schwartz, Pass..

Wish me luck,  this is so doable.. good I made a note of it.

Lofty resolutions:  finish 1, 2- 3 of my own books.. but 'Isidor' I might actually do..very soon.  I have on incentive there.. and its doable in short order.  

GGGOOOODDD luck on all your resolutions for 2013!



Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I never was either, but this year..for some reason, maybe I was a little worried about the Mayan calendar... lol that I decided to make some resolutions.  A very important one is to practice Chi Gong every day for stress and health and another was to stay off gluten for good.

This might be difficult during my surgery and recovery, but I believe that eating right prior to surgery will speed my recovery.  I need to get back out and exercise as well, which will help control my blood pressure.  

You will be doing yourself the most fabulous favor if you will do everything you can to get fit before this surgery. I have another story to tell about that. My sister had to have a hysterectomy, so she came back home from another state to have it. She was taking every supplement known to man to help recovery from surgery several weeks before the date. After the surgery she already had a ton of supplements ready to take, and we were scared out of our wits to give them to her, but she insisted that we give them to her even though she was not even supposed to have any liquid yet. I don't know how on earth she got them down, but she did! To make the story short, her doctor was shocked at her recovery. Three days later she was dismissed, caught a plane back home and never had any problems at all. Most amazing thing besides my mother's ordeal that I ever saw!! Supplementation before and after surgery definitely works!!

Another little story: I had to have a polp removed (or at least my doctor thought so) when I was pregnant with our second child. I had been totally sick with nausea for a solid three months before this surgery took place. I was barely able to get my supplements down, but I did. I instructed my husband about how to make me a super duper smoothie with everything but the sink in it to bring to the hospital when he came to be with me for the surgery. When they got me back to my room I immediately drank the entire 16 ounces. My husband was scared to death that I was going to throw the whole thing up, and the nurses would throw HIM out!! Anyway, a nurse came in about thirty minutes later and said, "Honey, we will give you some ice in about an hour." After she left we couldn't help but laugh. I was feeling GREAT! No nausea for the first time in three months!! So take good care of yourself, Jane, and I think you will be all right!

Sounds like a great plan!  I am working on my health before the surgery.  Let's hope things go well

Patty,
Let me know if there's anything I can do for you!
Congrats on selling your house so fast.  When's the surgery?

Do join us on the Fresh Start thread.  Don't worry about all the threads - just read what you want to and jump in.  Great group over there.  I've learned an awful lot from them and it does seem to help with accountability.

Hi Jane,
Thanks so much for your offer of help!  I should be all set.  My daughter is coming home from New York to help with the pets and my 94 year old mother wants to come and stay when I get home from the hospital.  She is AMAZING!!!  I'm sure if she comes, she will cook, do laundry, feed my pets and take very good care of me

My surgery is next Wednesday, January 16th at Brigham and Women's.

Hope you are well, Jane!
Patty
