    Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    I too do a lot of shopping on line. Something I learned as I got older is slow and steady. I don't try to do everything all at once like I used too and I often take breaks. Of course that doesn't help if you are cleaning because you can't sleep. Have you tried breathing exercises to help you sleep. I started them when I was pregnant with my son and couldn't sleep. I don't know how I found out about them but they always work for me. Lay down in a comfortable position with one hand on your belly. You are going to breathe deeply and your belly will rise instead of your chest because you want the bottom of the lungs. Empty your mind. If a stray thought creeps in tell yourself you are not going to think about that right now and push it away. You can't sleep if your mind is active. Relax all your muscles. Breathe deeply and slowly. Feel your stomach rise and fall. Concentrate only on your breathing, I've done this so often that it's second nature now and I'm asleep in seconds after laying down. Try it. It may take a few times to get it right but it does work.

    I hate it when the Doctor's Office weighs me clothed. No shoes or jacket (holding all the stuff in my pockets). and they will not take my morning reading. I should jump on the scale naked.

    148 @adiantum - Yes I'm all better. Had some kind of stomach virus or something from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon. Monday morning I felt normal again.

    I can't sleep as usual so I'm up cleaning. My back is aching but I took some pills. I have a lot of stuff to organize. The first shelving unit is looking good. I was able to order a bunch of toiletries online and send them to my parents house as our post office always wants me to pick up things from the post office which I can't do. I like having a little stock pile of things. It makes me feel secure. I've also got to clean the kitchen and bathroom. This will be quite a workout. Not sure how much i will be able to get through.

    Excellent suggestion. It's good not to feel alone and do something that keeps your mind off eating. Reaching out to others will help you too. I too, like Mike find myself eating when my hands and mind are idle. Then It's time to put on the music or the TV and pick up my knitting. I knit hats and sweaters for premies in the hospital and mitts for the homeless. In summer I like to knit while sitting on the porch so I can greet and or talk to my neighbours as they walk by. Of course this was done with social distancing this summer. I like to garden too so my time is pretty full

    Hugs Oriana, you are often on my mind as I wonder how you are . I'm sorry you are having a hard time but ever so glad you posted back here. OK we have to get those legs moving. to improve circulation. Perhaps google exercises for disabled, theres heaps of ideas for upper or lower body. Ive just ordered a gadget to help me get more arm exercise while having fun at it... ribbon dancing. I wont look as elegant as those in the Olympics & I'll always have 2 feet on the ground , but fun & laughter will be the reward. You never know what goes on behind closed doors... & thick curtains Keep posting here so it makes you feel accountable to your challenge, whilst knowing your with friends that care. When the pain is bad, try building jigsaws online & say every 10 pieces you could step your legs as if marching.? The benefit is that you cant eat while doing them while clock watching. If you want to try them I'll PM you my ID so you can follow me. https://www.jigsawplanet.com/ We are just coming into warm weather so ice cubes & cucumber slices will be my munching favorites. I dont know what support groups you have there. We have Red Cross's telecross service I used to belong to. Id go on a roster to give weekly morning cheery calls to a person.

    Oriana, My suggestion would be to contact by telephone an area care center for semior citizens or young adults with disabilities. You could develop a helpful and heathly relationship with one or two of them over the phone. You would not need to visit them in person, but just have weekly contacts over the phone. You are compassionate, understanding and caring. You also can relate to some of their challenges. Give it a try, I bet both you and your new friend would look forward to those phone calls. Hugs, Libby
