Your welcome Kathy, I to am stilling learning a lot here on sparks. Well, today I was able to get in a 30 min walk before the down pour. Not great for the lawn though because we just put seed down. I've been having so many headaches lately that I finally made an appt to see a chiropractor....Hope it helps!!!

Hope you are all doing well and having a great day.

Good for you to plan for treats. its the only way to get fit

I hope everyone had a great 4th. I enjoyed it even though my husband had to work. I knew I wanted to eat some treats during the fireworks, traditionally I make Carmel popcorn and we drink soda, etc. So I bought a box of cracker jacks and some chocolate candy. I felt really good about my decision plus I mowed the lawn and hiked to help offset the calories I was going to eat. Some days this is hard but I'm starting to feel and see the results. I was able to dance around the kitchen with my 9 month old granddaughter and not feel winded or tired. :) have a great week.

KASKFAB that's to bad that the party was boring. I don't like watching tennis either. Looks like we will have good weather to day. Are you going to watch the fireworks on the 4th?

Good afternoon, today was a good day because I don't have my headache anymore, which I had for the last 2 days. I was able to get in a 30 min this morning and then I took my daycare kids to the park....they just love it.

Michele....nice name, glad to hear things are finally coming together for you. I know when I started now 8 weeks it was slow starting for me too, but it sounds like you're doing great...keep it up!!!

Vernalgrandma.....wow, way to go on shaving off 3 min. on your hike....you go girl!!!

Have a wonderful weekend, heading up to the cabin....can't wait! emoticon

I guess I should introduce myself, guess I never did emoticon My name is Michele and and I have officially been a member for 1 week. Has been a rough start but am confident things can turn around.

I like being able to track my food intake with a user friendly program. Soon will also try the exercise tracker.

Forgot to weigh myself this morning so tomorrow morning may be happy or not.

Hope all have a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Hi everyone, today is a very humid day and didn't want to go for my walk, and besides that I have had a headache for the last 2 days and don't know why. Anyway, I pushed my self to get outside and went for a 30 min walk, then I took my daycare kids to the park for about an hour....boy was I tired!!!

M2grant....nice to hear from you again, glad to hear thing are better. but sorry to hear you've been in pain....must have been terrible.

Vernalgrandma....Glad to hear you and hubby are getting in some walking together, I think that great.

Have a wonderful day,

Hi everyone. I haven't been around the last several days and wanted to check in to see how all are doing.
I was so excited Saturday to have finally found a gym which was affordable and conducive hours and joined. This was the missing puzzle piece I needed to help with the loosing process.
Unfortunately I have not been able to try out the new gym or to even be concerned about tracking food. I have been dealing with an abscessed tooth and infected sinuses this week. The sinus infection is now under control thanks to the antibiotics and the tooth was removed yesterday. I am on the mend and hoping for this weekend to feel good.

Hope everyone has had a much better week.

NASFKAB are you getting homesick? I hate having my daughter living in Indiana while I'm here in Utah. I can't imagine having her live in another country. We celebrate the 24th of July like we do the 4th of July because that is when we became a state.

My town has a group of car enthusiasts that meet at Wendy's or the local BBQ joint. Sounds like fun. Today has been cloudy and windy...I've been walking in the morning when my husband gets home from the graveyard shift. I will be walking tonight when he gets home from dayshift. We are trying to create this healthy lifestyle together. I've been working on a self-affirmation board today. Finding quotes and pictures that I can collage together so when I'm feeling discouraged I can re-motivate myself.

Hi everyone, It's nice and sunny again today, was able to get in a 45 min walk and then I took my grandbabies and other kids to the park....they had a great time. Tonight my hubby and I take our street rod out and go to the Drive-in Diner, we meet with lots of other people that have street rods.....it's lots of fun.

Hope you all are having a great day! emoticon

My husband has to work this weekend so celebrations will be low key! But the weekend of the 15th will be a blast because my Arizona grandbabies are going to be here. I have a question...how do you ladies deal with travel and eating out? I was looking at different places where we stop and eat and I was shocked at the amount of calories I was consuming.

Hi everyone, it's finally a sunny day here in ND. I was able to get in a 45 min walk this morning....felt great!!!

Can't wait till this weekend rolls around because all of my children and grandbabies will be coming out to our cabin and have a great time. We plan on canoeing, paddle boating, and playing lots of lawn games. We always have lots of fun and laughs when we get together. In the evening we will be putting on a fireworks display, we do this every year. Some of my brother's and sister's will be joining us because they have cabins near by.

So what is everyone doing to celebrate the 4 of July?

Welcome SLHOWARD1, this is a wonderful site, hope to hear more from you.

Today I was able to get in a 30 min walk....Wasn't so easy maybe because I didn't walk much over the weekend. And because I ate to much cake and ice cream. Well, today is a new day and back to tracking and getting in some exercise.

Hope you all are having a great day. Let's have a great week!!! emoticon Toni

Hey, I'm new to this site, but not new to weight problems. I suggest you change your "inner" talk. You should NEVER diet. You need to change your lifestyle and make your way of life healther. It's no longer "I can't have that" some someone offers you cake. You should say "Thank you, but I choose to make better food choices than that" or "No Thank you, that would be a bad food choice for me". You choose to eat good or bad, it's just a point of view. If folks ask if your dieting, say NO, I'm just making better food choices, and it shows!!!

It has taken me 12 weeks of small meals, skipping sweets (my downfall) and working out like crazy to figure all this out. You choose to be fat or slim. No matter what. Take the bull by the horns and admit it. It's been hard. I stopped going out with my friend at work, because she always picks places that do not offer healthy alternatives.

We do all we have to to live happy and long lives!!! Good for you for choosing this!

I signed up with Spark People a little while back and never did anything with it. I'm very new with this site. I am looking for weight loss friends also. I turned 50 in January and have dieted all my life. Hopefully I will succeed this time.
