It's so amazing how being added as a friend can make me so very happy and motivated for success. I believe that this journey is a community journey and we need each other to succeed. emoticon

We all should know that people who are involved in a community like SparkPeople are more likely to meet their health and fitness goals and maintain them. emoticon

So I feel surrounded by so much love. I love friends. I need friends. I appreciate all of my friends. As we travel down this road with different personal goals, we ALL have the same goal...TO GET TO THE FINISH LINE. emoticon

What I want to say to my new Friends...Glad to Have You On board the Love Boat.
To my old friends...So Happy You are Still Holding it Down Faithfully.

I am humbled and love to be accountable. Today I took a slow walk and jumped a few times on that mini tramp. I had my 5 fruits and veggies today and I have breathed deeply. lol emoticonHave a couple more glasses of water to drink and another snack. Yes I eat late because my meals are normally eaten late. emoticon(YOU KNOW YOUR BODY DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS WHEN YOU EAT AND IT METABOLISES YOUR FOOD THE SAME WAY MORNING NOON OR NIGHT?)

I do try to eat something light the later it gets. Don't want my digestive system to have to work too hard as I prepare to go to sleep. emoticon

Again... emoticonto my new friends and emoticonto my old faithful friends. We are a goal getting kind of group! emoticon

One more thing: You are Required to emoticon. Can you do that for me?
Have a great night!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ok...I've been missin you all. One day without my connection and I go CRAZY!!! emoticon

Still not able to connect so I am at the library just to log because I have serious work to do. I am involved in the write a novel in the month of November. That's 50,000 words and 179pages. I am so excited. I started on Thursday and have written 3339 words already. I have a great imagination and a writer by Gift and trade so it's really easy for me to put words together and since you ALL should know I am long winded I will reach my goal before November 30, 2010. Not too late to start:

Eating was good Thursday and got me some great rebounding time and lower body strength work. Starting the physical therapy next week and wonder how it will be. emoticon

Looking forward to meeting my November goals with everyone else. We can do this.
Stay positive and keep SMILING!!! emoticon

If you are reading this, you have something to smile about. You made it another day!
God bless you and enjoy Friday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm so Happy to be Alive!!! (DID YOU VOTE TODAY?) God is Good all the time!!!

That's the day I fell in the Drainage Canal...Before...I could have drowned. Thank God I am Saved!

So I have some BIG goals for the month! I will work Hard to get them accomplished. With God ALL things are possible. I'm counting on you to cheer me on as I do the same for you. I will work hard and strong. I'm ready for more results. God is so good to us all. He can make changes happen to your body if you stay in Faith and Love and only Believe!!!

I love my Spark Family. Without you I would not be this far. THANK YOU ALL!!!

It's a great idea to have goals for the month that will get you through the month and the end of the year if necessary! Think Big and go for it!!!

That Giant will not win. That Weapon you have is more Powerful! Use it!

My goals for November:

* Lose 10 lbs this month. I'm dreaming BIG and aiming HIGH

* Eat within my calorie range of 1200-1550.

* Workout doing strength training 5 times a week.

* Cardio as often as possible.

* Increase breathing and stretching exercising.

Blessings to you all for a great healthy and fit month!!!

It was a Great Day today in Tulsa fellowshipping after Church at Panera Bread with a couple of friends.

I had the Soup and 1/2 Sandwich. Soup was lowfat Chicken Tortilla soup and had the plain smoked turkey w/out mayo. Had an apple...then I ate an oatmeal raisin cookie while talking. That will get you all the time...but I'm not going to sweat that. It happens and might even happen again. I love oatmeal raisin cookies. emoticon emoticon

We left late coming back home from Tulsa mainly my fault for lingering a little longer with my two good friends. But it was a great ride and won't have to go back again for a while.

So How was your day? Did you eat too much at lunch? Miss your breakfast? Ate half the candy you bought to take to your Autumn party or Hallelujah Celebration? Ate your children's candy...almost all of it?

How Did You Do Today? Don't get wiped out about it. Monday is a new day and a new Month for greater goals! emoticon

I can too!!!

    So far today I am doing pretty well! I think I will have toast with peanut butter and jam, until dinner tonight. so then I can have up to 450 calories for dinner. I think for dinner I will make tilapia, one filet is around 200 calories, then veggies, which is no more than 30 calories, and have 100 calories worth of rice which i believe is 1/4th cup! that will be perfect! :) Maybe I will even skip the rice so at my church growth group I can have a snack!

    Glad you had good company and a good ride on the last day of the month.
Hello Novemember, you're New and refreshing! As for me, my last day was filled with church services. I even walked to and from the evening service for the Annual Mission Day! I was sleepy, and not feeling so well, but I did it! My eating wasn't as scheduled...what did I have for breakfast? ...OH left over fruit and yogart from IHOP dinner lol And lunch was a tv dinner and dinner a salad, cheese and a couple of meatballs from the church reception. I guess it was pretty good! lol No festivities for me though. And no candy.
By the way, oatmeal cookie sounded like a good balance to me! emoticon

HELLO WONDERFUL SPARKFRIENDS! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Been having a great day today. Glorious Wednesday. Having a time going through new friends pages and old friends and knowing I am here for a purpose. And so are each of you! emoticon

Encouragement and Motivation is the Push someone might need to get them up out of that rut. Many times I have wanted to throw in the towel when I've made it hard for myself. This is not's work. No magic Pill Drink Machine or Move will change us over night.

Slow and Steady is sometimes the best way to do this lifestyle change. We have to Quit complaining and just do what we know is right and keep doing the work.

emoticonBe happy. God's People are Happy People. He is with us. We are never Alone. I am so happy to be among such wonderful caring people.

You truly are friends who stick closer than any brother. We are making it happen together. emoticon

I went and bought more fruits and veggies. Almond it! I got Multigrain bread to change up because I'm eating so many other items full of Fiber. Don't want to confuse my body. emoticon

emoticonDon't take for granite the free tools we have to help us be successful people. I know I did in the past but Food Tracker is my friend. lol And I am growing so much reading all the articles. I thank SparkPeople for free workout videos. I am so very thankful for Jesus leading me to this wonderful site. 55 pounds gone and 33 more to go. Miracle. I AM MAKING PROGRESS!!! emoticon

    I love it!! Girl, you are so thrilling these days & don't stop going long on my blogs! Don't mind it one bit!! Keep me focused in reaching my goals.

I feel like I am working out right along with you, Jay, Roz & my many Sparkfriends that I have to work until its done. So keep up the high level, high octane & pure energy that you ignite over there!!

God bless & I need more fiber. Does fibersure count? lol
