Happy Weekend Ruby Lites

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Hey Ruby Lites........How are all of you doing today. The weekend is here...what are you doing special. My honey and I are going to the marina for a picnic lunch today. The weather isn't quite as hot as the previous days. When I walked this a.m. I wasn't wondering if I was going to make it. Not quite so humid today. I walked 4.10 miles this morning. Try to get out and do a little something today even if it is only a walk down the block. You will feel so much better. I hope all of you will have a great weekend and remember to make wise choices and eat healthy.

    Good morning Nancy and thanks for posting your 4.10 mile walk already today. My 30 minute walk on the treadmill seems pale next to that LOL. Enjoy your picnic lunch with your hubby today. You should have a fun time. Hope it doesn't rain or get to hot. emoticon

PAT challenge

Friday, August 20, 2010

I have been a Ruby-Lite for almost a year now, but only active on the site since April. The PAT challenge is short for Pound-A-Thon. We are on teams of about 15 members and we made a pledge at the beginning of weight we were going to pledge during the challenge. I am maintaining but I still enjoy reading the messages and participating in the different daily challenges. Our team is the Hacky Honeys and the ladies I have met are certainly "honeys" (so sweet). This team has members that really participate and support each other. We chat quite a bit on the team thread and also send messages to individuals pages. This challenge is helping me maintain because it makes me ACCOUNTABLE. I really need that. When we finish this challenge if a pledge isn't met, that is okay because we know we tried and we can always START a new day if we slide a little backwards (we all do that sometimes). We just have to MOVE FORWARD and make it happen.

    Love your blog and it is encouraging to know that once we reach our goals, it will be possible to maintain as we never have in the past.

2 more Things decided

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Today we decided on cabinet color for the kitchen in our new home. Yesterday, we decided on the appliances. This has really been a tough decision because I don't like appliances that are white, black or stainless. I know 90% of sales are for stainless steel. It is just not for me. I don't like black because it shows every little speck of dust and fingerprints. We decided on the GE profile because it has stainless and black both on the appliance. It is pretty equal in each amount. At least it is broken up so it is not ALL stainless or ALL black. I do believe I will like that just fine. We did choose the Electrolux French Door refrigerator. We looked at the other Electrolux appliances but didn't get a price on them. I think I won't get a price on them because they are all stainless with no black....BUT the quality of them looks so well made. We have always been G.E. people and I guess that is where we are going again. This is our decision as of today. emoticon. There are just too many things to pick from.

    Sometimes, choices are hard, aren't they? I'm glad you didn't choose All Black...In February we got a new stove & fridge (All Black) they show everything emoticon

    I'm so glad you found something that will work for you. It always seems like there are so many decisions to make even just in selecting an appliance (color, style, size, manufacturer, price, etc.) It can get too much too quickly.

Sitting again

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

This evening I will be toddler sitting for the little 1 1/2 yr old girl in my neighborhood. I just love sitting with her. We cook, play ring around the rosies, sing and dance a lot. Children sure can make you feel young again (or make you feel really old). She is such a sweet little girl. I have watched her since she was 3 weeks old. She had colic and cried all of the time. I would just hold her, rock or or walk with her. The first time I watched her, she didn't cry 20 minutes out of 2 hours...and it was not 20 minutes at one time. It was pretty tough for her mom and that was time she could have a little break when I was there. NOW it is so different. She is a sweet little toddler and a pleasure to watch.....

    Sorry I missed your call. I guess you're just leaving there but in case not I'm certainly not calling you at midnight! I bet you'll sleep well tonight! How was your evening with her?

Thanks Spark Friends

Monday, August 16, 2010

I want all of you to know how much you mean to me. My daughter got me on SP even though I was maintaining. I thought what would I do on a weight loss group when I am maintaining . Well, let me tell you....I have met some of the nicest people here. No matter whether your problem is big or small, there is always someone to talk with and for you to let them know how you feel. I see blogs where people are so down and lost and they let Spark friends know and immediately "help" is on the way. You hear back from them how much they were helped by the messages of encouragement sent to them and that they were not alone. There is also good things written about......success stories, how well someone is doing being on Spark and doing the challenges. I am a Lifetime WW for about 9 years but decided when I got on SP that I wanted to lower my goal another 6 pounds. I did that, thanks to the motivation here. As some of you know, the scale is my motivator but I like counting SP as my motivator too. I want to do good to write about it and to let everyone know it can be done. There are some amazing stories here about the weight loss journey of so many Spark friends . emoticon Nancy

    Very nice blog! I am SOOO happy you joined when I visited at Easter (well, you joined last year because I asked you too, but actually started using the site on Easter weekend).

The people here are AMAZING! I am so happy I found it and I look forward to being here everyday.

I'm glad you are enjoying it so much!

    You got that right. Spark People Friends are the best friends in the entire world. I can't tell you how much encouragement, words of wisdom, help of any kind that I have received on this site. I am glad that it has been just as good for you. emoticon

    You hit it right spot on. The people on spark are all nice, but these Ruby teams are beyond special. And when they say they care, it is not just words, they mean it. I love it here.

SP is a lot more than a weight loss site...the people are so kind, giving & encouraging. I met my goal with SP 4 months ago, but I'm still on here every day. I need the friends I have on this site; they are just wonderful! Like you, my new friend! I'm very grateful for all of the people on this site!

    I just love it here.. I get the support and motivation that I have never gotten before... I love all the friendships that are formed here and the teams.. I agree this is the place to be if you need friends... SP friends are going through or have gone through or will be going through the same things as us and thats a wonderful bond..
