This may be an odd request, but I'm stymied. I'm looking for an inexpensive source of old mattress pads. Doesn't matter what size or condition. I'm going to cut them up to make potholders, placemats for my dog, cageliners for my rats cages and waterproof pads for my mother and grandmothers beds and chairs. I'm guessing thrift shops won't carry them, but I'm going to check just to be sure. Any suggestions?

A friend of mine recommended I try hot yoga to help with shoulder and back pain, after much searching I found a few local ones here in Roseville. Purple Moon was having a 20 days for $20 special so I thought I'd try them....and I love it! If anyone here has thought about trying it I strongly suggest you do. 90 mins in a 105 degree room is fantastic... Mon, 22 Feb 2010 11:19:57 EST First post, ahh! Hi!!

Mon, 8 Feb 2010 13:27:58 EST Hello, Finally Here I joined SparkPeople a long time ago but never used it. After developing some medical problems the doctors cannot figure out, I decided it was time to start shedding the pounds to see if that would help. I've already lost 20 and have 35 more to go. My biggest two problems are that I emotional eat and I have two kids that are on high calorie diet s so the higher calorie foods have to be in the house. <BR> <BR> Glad I'm finally doing this and finding a lot of great ideas here. Fri, 5 Feb 2010 11:18:20 EST I don't know if you will remember me..... But I am back. Again. Bigger than ever, but that has to change. I have some obstacles to overcome, but I have to find a way to get moving. And to get motivated. <BR> <BR> I hope y'all will have me back?!?! I am in desperate need of stability, accountability, and a place to fail without feeling humiliated. <BR> <BR> I see many new faces. I can't wait to get to know you, all of you, more. <BR> Happy Friday! <BR> Love and light <BR> Meg Fri, 29 Jan 2010 14:05:53 EST Storm Watch 2010 How's everyone holding up?

My questions involve diet mainly. Protein vs Non-Protein. Tue, 22 Dec 2009 07:31:06 EST WHY DO SO FEW NEW MEMBERS MAKE SPARK PAGES??? I send a spark goodie to every one who has a spark page but so few new members make a spark page, I have only given away a few items. <BR> I was going to start sending private messages to any new person who does not have a spark page, but if there is no way to click on their icon and get to their mailbox, I cannot do that either. <BR> I'd really like to get this team moving again. <BR> Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated. <BR> <BR> <BR> Sun, 13 Dec 2009 18:42:23 EST SNOW!!! Did anyone get snow at their house? We had a dusting on the cars and patio furniture. Maybe enough for 1 or 2 snowballs. <BR> <BR> I had to go to Auburn this morning for work. There was so much snow there. Around Newcastle, all the trucks had pulled over to put on their snow chains. <BR> <BR> I'm glad I was able to get my work-out in at the gym today.

It has been 7 months since I was a member of Cal Fit by my house, but I decided this is what I *HOPE* will get me over this bump in the road I am in. I could not tell if the guy that signed me up was full of sh** or really a nice guy. He gave me his cell number and told me to call him if I need help, motivation, or had questions about anything. He said he won't let me give up and that this 45# will come off and he will help me make sure of it. Then he set me up with a pe...

I have 3 picky eaters here which makes things difficult too, my DH and 2 of my kids. <BR> <BR> When I did not care about what I ate, I would just go to the store and buy whatever.

Thu, 8 Oct 2009 14:33:39 EST Magazine Does anyone have a favorite magazine they read? I love the cooking Light one. I subscribe to it, this is my second year. I usually plan all the meals from this magazine. I cut out all the good recipes and have created a cook book, if you will with notes of things I like and didn't like or if the kids didn't like it etc. They usually have awesome recipes and they take 1 readers high fat high caloric recipe and "fix" it so it is healthier, often times cutting everything in half!

Wed, 7 Oct 2009 17:07:08 EST MEMBERS CHECK OUT OTHER MEMBERS SPARK PAGE The best way to get to know other members is to create a spark page. <BR> Then the rest of us can come visit and say hello. <BR> We can give you spark goodies, share motivational sayings and websites. <BR> as you explore this club check out the members. <BR> Quote of the Day <BR> Doing is a quantum leap from imagining. <BR> Barbara Sher Tue, 6 Oct 2009 12:28:12 EST How many of us are there actually on this team?

Thu, 4 Jun 2009 10:00:27 EST Portion Control Watching my portion size is something I constantly have to think about. <BR> <BR> I will use a measuring cup when serving food, that way I can see how much I am putting on my plate. We have also switched to smaller plates. That way it looks like we are eating more. Sometimes if is something that I really like, I will take a drink between each bite. It takes longer to eat and if everyone is done I will skip on seconds. <BR> <BR> What are your tricks and tips? Tue, 2 Jun 2009 16:10:43 EST It is HOT!! It is so hot!! I was wondering what the rest of you are doing to stay active and cool in this hot hot weather. <BR> <BR> I have been working out in my bathing suit and jumping in the pool as soon as I am done.

This has been the worst week for me ... as far as exercise goes. It all started last tuesday (okay that makes the worst week and a half of exercise) when I started reading Twilight, the book by Stephanie Meyer. I became obsessive. By the time I was on the last chapter I was already looking for the next in the series. Well 9 days later I have finished all four books (very long books) and my house is a disaster and I have not done any exercise since last tuesday, I think. I have been eating goo...

I just joined this a couple of days ago and I'm still working out how everything works. :) My main goal is weight loss, but I'm having a tough time. I have additional health issues that make it even more difficult to loose weight due to hormonal imbalances (polycystic ovarian syndrome), but for which the best fix is to loose weight. Kind of a difficult position. I'm looking to loose a lot, so I'll probably be on here for a while. I've been sucessful in completely overhaulin... Sat, 4 Apr 2009 22:08:22 EST All Day Fitness Event!

I've struggled with my weight most of my life, at least internally. In fact, I remember the moment I turned self-conscious about my appearance, particularly my weight. I'm not the heaviest person around, but I'm not the healthiest either. I spend way too much time feeling down about my appearance rather than trying to do something about it. I know what I need to do, but I just can't bring myself to take action. Instead I use the overplayed excuses of too tired, n... Fri, 3 Apr 2009 14:36:23 EST Back from Disneyland ...

I've been trying to lose weight ever since I had my daughter almost 2 years ago with little success. I am feeling so discouraged. I hope this works. I think talking to others who relate will help.

Thu, 19 Feb 2009 18:50:03 EST The joys of exercise I have been having a difficult time loosing weight by dieting alone so recently I joined a gym. I've been going about 3-4 days a week on my lunch hour and working out pretty hard. So far I've been doing this along with healthy eating for between 1 and 2 months. I haven't really seen any results and I am beyond frustrated!! Some of my friends have told me to be patient and soon I will notice a difference but I'm not really a patient person. Is anyone else have these problems? Wed, 18 Feb 2009 19:33:38 EST Hi there, I'm new :) I'm 18. I started my journey to health on January 19th, 2009.
