    So glad to hear your good progress report. I need to put my plan in gear for Thanksgiving as well. Our immediate family will all be together this year on Thanksgiving. It has been many Thanksgivings since that happened. It kind of came together without really planning it that way and we are excited. My sister planned the menu and each of us is pitching in. So I just got the whole menu yesterday. Now it's time to make a plan, then work it.

The Best Birthday Gift

Friday, November 14, 2014

Today is my 62nd Birthday....I find it hard to believe ...but it is true....
on my 52nd Birthday I wondered how much longer I would live.....I was more than 200 pounds over weight, I had a very stressful job....it was hard to walk from my car to the store door, I would look for a cart so I could use that.....I was depressed and had a lot of very dark days....
I tried never to go out to people's home or accept invitations to parties.....I was to embarrassed by my weight...I always felt like I was the fattest person in the room....I felt a lot of guilt and humiliation ..
I was one very unhappy person....

But today I am 144 lbs....I am healthy, I exercise at least 120 minutes a day, I am full of energy I am filled with love from my family and friends......and myself


Finding Spark People was the best thing that ever happened to me...

Getting healthy is the best gift I have ever given myself....this morning when I woke I thought...another birthday that I can be proud of, another day to be proud of....I lost over 200 pounds and have kept it off....I have made so many friend here and the joy continues....they give me the motivation to keep going...they give support and understanding...

Thank you all for the well wishes for my Birthday....I am filled with excitement for my life....





it is the best gift of all

Some days I wonder about food and calories..I'm a rather plain eater and eat mostly the same food...When I find something I like I stick with it.......
I posted a while back about a favorite snack bar I love....they are 100 calories ...but today as I was sort of day dreaming and listening to the TV Gary was watching the fights on Showtime....I hear a familiar commercial ....so I wonder just how many calories was in a small Peanut Butter blizzard.... emoticon saying I was surprized was an understatement ....in the SMALL size it's 550 calories, 22 grams of fat, 45 grams of chol. and 76 carbs.....I was shocked till I saw the extreme chocolate Blizzard with Reeses peanut butter cup pieces....still a small but it has 800 calories...is that possible....800 calories, 38 grams of fat, 104 carbs.........
after I caught my breath I could not stop thinking that this small treat could really derail a person watching there calories...800 is almost my whole day of calories ( I try and stay in the 12500 range most days....
I felt a bit over whelmed, I had to admit I have not had a blizzard in year...an now probable will only get one to share with 3 of my best friends...and just might stick with the McDonald cone for 150 cal....

for now I am going to have a sweet yummy cutie, tangerine ...only 40 calories 0 fat, 0 chole. 0 sodium...
my heart has slowed down and I am so thank for I have spark people to help keep me on track to a healthy life.... emoticon

Have a wonderful week end....look up those calories before you eat....so you won't get sticker shock. emoticon

    WOW! I really like the McD's ice cream cone! No blizzards around this area - at least not the food ones!

Report Inappropriate Comment
FUNLOVEN 11/7/2014 11:43AM

    For me it is best to just stay away from those kind of treats. Then tend to be real trigger foods for me and I most certainly don't need that right now. I know that every once in a while we all need a treat, but I try to keep mine to a minimum and to only those things that I know the calorie count for!

Love those Cutie oranges! emoticon

    You would think something with that many calories would at least fill you up but no, they are empty calories for sure so definitely not worth it! I find those McDonald's cones quite satisfying when I'm really craving ice cream - they feel indulgent and are really not bad calorie-wise.

KATHYJO56 11/7/2014 12:52AM

    Kitt, I looked blizzards up a couple of years ago and was so shocked, I almost couldn't breathe. Do you realize how small a small blizzard is? It is extremely small and to have that many calories in something so small is not worth it to me. In fact, that is more than I eat in any given meal ever! I am talking about the 550 one and I would never eat an 800 calorie meal. Like you, if I want ice cream, the 150 calorie McDonalds cone does the trick. Thank you for posting this info.
