I had the best day with my granddaughter yesterday. We went shopping after kindergarten.
She is almost four, in about a week. Her and nana can do some shopping. She loves looking at everything. We looked at every toy in Target. She says, "lets push the buttons and see what they do." So we did everyone of them. Weee I got a work out for about an hour and a half. She is a big reason why I want to get my weight to a health level. I want us to run and play and I never want her to have a weight problem. She likes her carbs and sweets but I'm really trying to push eat healthy where we can run and play. I have got to be an example for her that health is fun and the only way to go. I want us to be able to go shop and have fun trying on clothes and not do what I'm doing now, just getting something to cover and that's all. I'm looking forward to being in my size 12 clothes and maybe smaller if its healthy. I'm tall 5ft.8in. I can wear a ten easy but we will just see. I'm enjoying my clothes looser now.

    One of the reasons I really miss never having kids is all the fun toys I dont get to play with! I am definately one of those button pushers myself.

Sounds like such a fun day. And I am sure your healthy life style will definately have an impact on your little granddaughter.

  I love being with my grandchildren. I think we are called to make sure they eat healthy, make wise choices. I wish in some ways I had it to do over with our own children in what I fed them -PopTarts, sugary cereals, candy. I am definitely changing it with my grandchildren and even our children and us have made important changes with our exercise and food! Keep having fun with your family!

    Sounds like a fun day. My hubby won't let me go to toy store because I become 5 again and love to push all the buttons. I can just see the two of you laughing and having a fun time. emoticon

Sounds like you had a great time with your little granddaughter,I can just see you
among all the bells and whistles.And laughing like crazy. It reminds me of when my Mum was alive, she,and my sister and I used to turn loose in the hat department, we would try on the silliest head gear we could find and laugh ourselves silly.
Those were the days. Good Luck with your weight loss journey, and enjoy many more outings with your grand daughter.

  I am glad to see that you are creating such happy memories with your granddaughter. I just posted about how I am going to make a conscious effort to provide positive reinforcement to the kids in my life. Beyond the things that one can say, spending time and interacting with them in their interests is one of the best things you can do. You are lucky to have each other!

I had to go to the ear, nose and throat doctor today. My throat and ear has been hurting me for a few days.
I was afraid not to go because my dad had cancer of the sinus and throat and died from it.
Well come to find out I had pulled the muscles in my throat weight lifting. Of all the things.
I am thankful that was all it was. You just never know what you may find out when you go to the doctor. I just about made myself sick worrying.
We were out so late we just grabbed some Wendy's chili and fruit. I'll have yogurt and nuts at home.
I reckon I will just ride my bike for awhile. Its like my husband said I have plenty of time to heal up and then do the weights. Its not like I'm going to drop 50 pounds over night. I just want to use the weights to keep everything tight as it will get.
Everybody keep on Sparking.

    Your husband is right the most important thing right now is to give your muscles a chance to heal. When you start up again be sure to follow proper weight lifting guide lines and try not to overdo.

Good luck in the days ahead and remember to keep on keeping on.

It is so frustrating to try and find calories that all say the same thing. I looked up Greek food today and got all kinds of calories. I know people make things with different seasoning and that makes a different. I know some use oil, some don't. I just went to a happy medium and hope for the best. I know what I ate was not fried, not sweet. So I just hope I did okay.
My calories said 1500, but my stomach says huh. I will just drink some water and maybe hot tea and just wait for tomorrow to eat something that I know what is in it. It really is frustrating to go out to eat you just never know just what you are eating.
I did have some good news. I was not going to weigh again until February but I just could not wait so I weighted this morning and so far I have lost 15 pounds since January 4. I know some of that was fluid but I know some of it was fat and I'm happy. I have five more pounds to my first goal, You know 20 pounds. I like that. First 20 will be gone soon and then on to the next 20 and so on.
I think I will go bike and see if I can burn about 100 calories. That will make me feel better about the whole calorie counting.

    That is wonderful weight loss. I know what you mean it makes it hard when you go to places you like to eat and it is hard to track what you have eaten.

  That is great 15 pounds. You should be Proud. I know how you feel about the calories. I get so frustrated trying to pick foods and then count the calories. No matter what.. 15 pounds makes it all worth while. I hope to be as successful as you. Keep up the great work

    That's really good news on the weight loss, WOW. I always found once the weight started the downward spiral it seemed to keep going. I also found the same when gaining, easy to keep putting on.
