Into the 230's

Thursday, October 15, 2009

It is so unbelievable to see a number I haven't seen for years. I had long term care insurance denied 4 years ago because I was 243 lbs. I just went up from there. The number really isn't important other than as a sign of health and wellness. I feel so much better at this "number" than I did at the 270 "number". I pray I can at least stay here and not go up, but my fervent hope is that I continue to go down into the 100's.

I have my thyroid biopsy today and feel confident. I just wish I didn't have to go thru the procedure. I don't like people poking around my neck!

    Yay for YOU! I am so proud of you! Making progress every week now, and what is really great is that you are loving your outdoor time which just "snowballs" on itself (good thing, since you're in beautiful Colorado!!!)

I'm happy for you, Daisy. You bring a lot of light to others here on Spark, and today you have managed to light up your own world! Keep on truckin'! Can you imagine where you'll be in one month? 2? 3? Next spring??? You will be in a wonderful place where insurance companies will be asking to have you on their plans!

"Groovin' and Movin"

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

I tried to put the Leslie Sansone DVD from Exercise TV on this am, but none of the Exercises would come up. A notice said to call the Cable Company, but I have to go to work in 1/2 hour so I decided to put on the Golden Oldie's channel. I just started walking to all the 60's and 70's song from my teenage years. I had a blast. I used all the moves I could remember from Leslie but I began adding the Stroll, the Twist, the Fish ..... you know what I mean? I had fun. Then I thought "This is what the thought for the day today on Spark meant - have fun with it. Life is Good but Life is also Fun!

    never thought about turning on the oldies station. Our cable doesn't have any good fitness stuff on their exercise channel. It is yoga and something else...I forgot. emoticon

Keep Sparking

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

I woke up late and didn't get to look at Spark or do my exercises. I guess I needed sleep.

I walked at lunch and posted my food. I'll exercise some more tonight.
emoticon emoticon

I don't have much to say today, but I like to blog daily. So that's it for now.

Keep Sparking! emoticon

After coming back from a weekend where I ate more calories than I should (but all healthful food) I didn't expect to lose weight today at my weigh in. However I was down a pound!
emoticon emoticon1

I am so thankful for this program I can't even express it. I have tried so often to lose weight. I have lost 60 pounds 3 times - once with WW and 2 x with OA. Each time it was a battle with myself and my urge to eat. Exercise didn't play a part any time - I am a couch potato. This time there is no battle. I feel like I am going through a learning process about food, myself and activity. I don't feel like I am struggling, I feel like I am growing and I am so thankful.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

When I saw the scale this morning I sighed "Thank you God" and I mean it heartfeltfully (if that's a word! emoticon)

Life is good.

  WooHoo on the weight loss! emoticon
Once again, you've put into words exactly how I feel! This isn't like any other weight loss program I've ever used before and I'm learning so much from it! I'm making great friends -- like you :-) -- that give their support on a daily basis.

  There are so many things I love about Sparks. I too have loss a lot of weight with both WW and OA and think both are great. But the information available here is super and I know I am with people who truly understand the daily struggle and are here for us 100 percent. I am so happy things are going well for you! Hugs.

More Calories in Cold Weather?

Sunday, October 11, 2009

This weekend at the cabin was great! We had 6 inches of snow and it never got above 32 degrees F. I didn't want to go out walking Saturday am but DH was so excited by the snow he really encouraged me to go walking with him. I'm sure glad he did. It was crystal clear and glorious. It was hard walking up the hills in the snow but we walked 40 minutes and felt so exhilarated when we got back. Today I encouraged him to come out and do it again and believe me, he didn't need much encouragement. Even Bucky was more excited than usual (and that's pretty hard for him) emoticon

The only down side is that when I got home and tracked my calories, I was 200 to 300 calories over each day. emoticon

Hopefully, I burned it up staying warm! emoticon emoticon

    I'll bet that cool, crisp air was great! I wouldn't actually mind if it snowed here. It's been cool and dreary and rainy a lot this past week. I think we had a light frost last night. Nothing like trekking through fresh fallen snow for the first time of the season!

    Sounds like a fabulous time in the snow. It is just cold and windy here. Not pretty. You kept up your exercise that was great. If you were 500 calories over this weekend that isn't even 1/7 of a pound of calories. You should be fine. You will be back on track now.

    Yeah, I think the body needs more calories when it's colder.
