Mon, 16 Jan 2017 11:07:35 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) Rosie, <BR> That is great news about your PR improvement. <BR> I really need to work on getting faster. I need to also get my core stronger. So many things to improve on before race day (11/10). <BR> I still need to buy new shoes. Finances have not permitted as yet and I want to pay for my registration fees before they increase (10/10). I'm sure it will all work out. I just want to get me a good pair of "toe friendly" shoes so I can "break them in" before race day. So many money deadl...

It's August. <BR> I've been so busy this week, I forgot to start up the new thread. <BR> Currently out of town. 4 hours on the road is not like Kauai. LOL You can get anywhere in an hour.

Sun, 7 Jul 2013 02:21:00 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) June 2013 GGs how are things with you? <BR> I'm trying to get settled into SF. <BR> This new project that we are involved in is quite time consuming for now, but will normalize soon. I'm thinking of challenges to get our team into summer burning mode. <BR> If you have any ideas, spark mail me or post here! Fri, 7 Jun 2013 00:29:05 EST NEW TO TEAM I have 66 lbs to lose and could use some support along the way. Since reaching my 50's it's been a real challenge to get any weight off. But I know with hard work and determination, I will lose all I need to lose to get back the body I know I have under all this fat. <BR> Sun, 19 May 2013 13:20:36 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) May 2013 For starters...drum roll, please... <em>144</em> <em>107</em> <em>19</em> <BR> <BR> Happy Birthday, MSG! <BR> <BR> You know, I think it's KPG's birthday as well.

Although GTF is willing to do the posts... I figure it's more realistic to just do a monthly thread. <BR> We need to work towards getting back to posting... I'm going to see what challenges we can do and stuff. I'll take the month of April to think about it. <BR> I won't be back in the US until end...

Do you all have any special plans or goings on for Christmas? We don't have anything in particular or out of the ordinary planned. My goal is to not give all of my money to manufacturers and to not overeat. <BR> <BR> Other than that, I can happily say that I've lost 3 of the however many pounds that I had gained.

Sun, 16 Dec 2012 13:14:49 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 12/9 - 12/15 Good Morning, GG's: <BR> <BR> I hope that you are all doing most excellent. It's a bit rainy here in Georgia, to paraphrase Ray Charles, with a little coolness and no sunshine, but a beautiful day nonetheless. <BR> <BR> The only thing I'm really trying to figure out, GG's is how in the world can a certain time of the year, a time that comes in the same time frame every year throw us off so incredibly much! If you don't fall victim to the distractions, you must put some notes together and ...

Seem like I just wrote the October 1 weekly. Thanksgiving was good for the me and the fam. We went to my brother's for dinner and had a great time with the other family there. I got my eat on, but really didn't overdo it as I have been known to do in the past.

It's a great day to eat right, workout and treat yourself right. A great day to talk to friends, help someone, help yourself and be thankful for all that's good in your life. <BR> <BR> My SparkPlan this week is to keep the basics on track. In ref to working out, that's going very well. Eating-wise, I'm on this new criteria whereby I am modifying my carbs throughout the day. I love carbs and can't see ever giving...

It is an absolutely gorgeous fall day here in Georgia. The sun is shinning brightly. The air is crisp, albeit cooler than my fav, but I bask in and appreciate it nonetheless. <BR> <BR> Speaking of weather, @MSG, I hope that Germany has brightened up considerably for you.

No matter the problem or how many challenges, as long as we are here and can read this and respond, we are in the best position to make the best of it. We are alive, functioning and able to think. Powerful tools to work with what God has given us today. <BR> <BR> Something seems to be wrong with my SP connection. I'm going to post this to get us started and then reboot to see if that helps and post details later. <BR> <BR> ...

Sun, 30 Sep 2012 08:42:07 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 9/23 - 9/29 Hey ladies... <BR> <BR> <BR> I'm down 3.4 lbs. This whole surrendering of the appetite to God is a wonderful thing. He is so blessing me. <BR> <BR> I haven't changed my ticker because I never put the original weight I got up to. So I'm just going to wait until I get back down to the weight displayed on my ticker. <BR> <BR> What are your goals for this week? <BR> <BR> I really should be in bed now... it's almost 11 pm here on Saturday. <BR> This week I want to exercise at least 4 days ...

I'm grateful to have another day and simply put, God is good! <BR> <BR> Got my workout on today. It was nice. There was a substitute instructor and she taught, I'd say, on a level somewhere between beginner and intermediate.

I think the last few weeks of summer and getting back to school preparations must be underway. <BR> <BR> You know, how it is. Trying to get that last bit of summer enjoyment in as we realize how fast it's gone by and getting ready for fall at same time.

Unfortunately, I didn't reach my summer WL goals, but all is not lost. LOL - literally, all is not lost. <BR> <BR> @MSG - Two lbs from your desired goal weight! That is so very exciting.

She could go from those directly to the front cover of a magazine. About mommy - good to see you and hope that you had a great family visit. Hop on board with getting and staying on track. We are still working at it. <BR> <BR> @KPG - Greetings to you. You probably know by now that yes, the Olympics are over. All were good, but I enjoyed my track and field most. I'm very conf...

I can say that I finally rejoined the gym...and fitting in all my classes along with all the other stuff to do means that I couldn't get online as much as usual. But, not to fret. I'm here, starting our thread and looking forward to talking to you. <BR> <BR> I'm really enjoying being back at the gym and having variety. What's going on with you, GG's?

Sun, 17 Jun 2012 12:55:52 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 6/10 - 6/16 <em>213</em> Good Sunday Morning, GG's: <BR> <BR> You know that I usually start off with the weather report. To quote Ray Charles, "it's a rainy day here in Georgia." I don't know what the temp feels like, but I appreciate the rain just as much as I love the sun. It's a beautiful day. <BR> <BR> Well, GG's, thank goodness that we get a new day to start over and in my case a new week. Not enough exercising and too much unhealthy eating for me last week. I'll say it once again, for someo... Sun, 10 Jun 2012 09:59:07 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 6/3 - 6/9 Good Sunday Morn, GG's: <BR> <BR> The sun is shinning, birds singing and it's gonna be hot! Lovely day. <BR> <BR> Well, GG's, I'll start out by saying that it has been an epic fail for me to get these three pounds off. In fact, I've gained another pound and no matter what I do, the scale won't seem to move. Well, okay, perhaps if I had worked out regularly it would have moved. <BR> <BR> I said that I didn't want to go backwards, but I ain't acting like it. Although I gave myself by t...

I hope you all are doing just great and I hope that we all are able to get to our GG Gab this week. <BR> <BR> As for me, I've gained 3lbs...too much eating out and indulging in my favorite grown up beverage, margarita's. Disappointed in my gain and it's been hard to get off to boot, but I just can't go any further backward. I've got to be under that 3lbs when...

I've learned to be appreciative for God's greatness both in the sun and the rain. <BR> <BR> I hope all is well for everyone. As for me, I was on my workout plan some days this past week, but not nearly enough. I'm up 2lbs and may be a little more after today's Mother's Day din din. Well, I can't so backwards, so all of this means really pushing forward with a purpose. <BR> <BR> Outside of my hoping that you all...

It seems that it was quite busy for everyone last week. I, for one, had so much going on that I neglected to get my exercise in for most of the week. <BR> <BR> I had a bout of insomnia and was plum tuckered out when I got up and during the rest of the day. Finally, sleep has found me again so I got my workout in yesterday and getting ready to do my thing in a few. <BR> <BR> How's it...

It's a lovely bright, sunny day here in Georgia. A little on the windy side, but gorgeous still. <BR> <BR> I had so much going on last week that I wasn't able to check in very much. I'll have read up to see what y'all have been up to. <BR> <BR> I did get some low intensity workouts done for most day of the week, but didn't record them since I wasn't checking.

I have to meet my goal of 151.4 by April 1st! <BR> <BR> That means in two weeks I have to lose 4 lbs. I say that because when TOM comes I usually gain. So that weekend won't count towards my goal. <BR> <BR> My HRM watch is out of battery and I have to send it to get the battery switched out. <em>40</em> That's at least 10-14 days that I could be without it!!!

(Gixxer, isn't your birthday the 1st of next month?) Well, my goal was to lose 18 lbs by then and looking at February, I only lost 2.8 lbs! Not even half my goal for the month. Ugh!

I joined the challenged on another team, but I think I will post it here from now on. Although it looks like I may be on it by myself for right now, I think that posting on the GG4L team will help me to be more motivated and accountable. You know...just in case one of you does peek in. <BR> <BR> Well, on to the next task. I will talk to you later. <BR> <BR> Essie Sun, 8 Jan 2012 11:06:32 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 1/1 - 1/7 The original cast is showing up! <BR> <BR> GG4L!!!! <BR> <BR> Well, GTF, no guarantee that I'll be starting the new thread every week, but just like this weight loss thing, I gots to take it one week at a time. <BR> <BR> Ticker is current as of Dec. 31 in the a.m. I'm a Saturday weigh in kinda GG. <BR> <BR> I'm debating on whether I should weigh in Just once a month initially. <BR> <BR> Still going over plans...

Christmas is almost upon us! Some celebrate, some don't. Some see it one way, other's see it another. I'm just going with the traditional and what floats my boat. Either way, let's hope that we are cheerful to one another, joyous, and of course, striving to be healthy. <BR> <BR> Gotta go weigh in at WW. The scale is still up, I know, but gotta be accountable and get these much unwanted 3 lbs "offa" me LOL. <BR> <BR> See you in a few.

It seems like it's taking me just as long to regroup as I was on vacation. <BR> <BR> Anywho, I should be able to get back to my full workout routine this week and I am looking forward to it. I reinjured my lumbar just before we went on the cruise, so much so that I had to go to the medic on board to get some help. I was walking on a slant <em>246</em> . ...

There's no place like it. <BR> <BR> I trust that you all are doing well. As for me, the scale could have been worse, but it definitely needs improvement. I'm back on track today and will stay there. I'll consider this a slight veering off course, not a derailment. I certainly don't want to go the backwards route. In fact, I'm not going any further back than...

I was looking for one of the weight loss badges and saw the number 10 in that thing I posted, which I thought was 10lbs lost. I couldn't see the fine print though <em>246</em> .

It is another God-given beautiful Sunday morning here in Georgia. I love the Georgia weather! <BR> <BR> Just a quick exercise update. I did manage to do a lunge and ab workout, which wore me out.

Sun, 26 Jun 2011 23:56:57 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 6/12 - 6/18 Hi GGs! <BR> <BR> I'm up by 1 lb. <BR> I'm not crying over it, but I know I've got to seriously move to get into the 140s before I start to "give up" and move up. <BR> <BR> Last week was interesting. My father's brother passed over the weekend. I'm in shock. It was understandable, but unexpected. I was up until 1 am. just trying to talk with family. My mother was shocked and sad, my father cried with me over the phone. Grief is a trip. Some get overwhelmed with tears, some hold it ... Mon, 13 Jun 2011 01:38:06 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 6/5 - 6/11 Hey, GGs!!! <BR> I'm sorry I'm late. <BR> Weight ticker is current. <BR> Need to catch up on all I've read. <BR> Haven't done the Caliper yet, hopefully tomorrow morning. <BR> <BR> Oh, and good to see you back DeVa, you are very close to goal!

Did DH talk to DS? How did DD enjoy the weekend? Do tell. And WTG for getting in that Zumba. You go, Getta. <BR> <BR> MSG, I'm so glad you're coming back to your goals. I know what you mean about feeling good when you're eating right and not eating. That not eating helps a lot. You know, it just clears your mi...

Of course you can reach your goal! I think our problem is we often think of how far the end seems to be and forget to focus on the victories we have right now. You ate well that moment, celebrate that and don't focus too much on how far the goal seems to be. YOU WILL REACH IT. I feel that way a lot, too. But when I just foc... Mon, 23 May 2011 01:50:43 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 5/15 - 5/21 Sorry I'm so late. <BR> I thought that I had posted it... I've been so busy. <BR> How is everyone doing? <BR> I'm so close to the 140s, I can smell it. <BR> Now TOM is 5 days late and I am starting to do the water retaining thing. AHH! Thu, 19 May 2011 00:47:38 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 5/8 - 5/14 Hey GG's. <BR> This week I stayed the same. I really need to reduce cal intake or something. I don't know what to do, but I have to remember that I've got a goal to reach and I need to be as close to it as possible by July 1st! That's not very long from now, especially at the rate I'm going. I need to make this coming week my BEST week! My TOM arrives the very next weekend. I don't know how my cravings will go, more carbs, more carob, more food in general. So I need to shake as much ... Sun, 8 May 2011 16:15:56 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 4/30 - 5/6 Hi ladies!!! <BR> <BR> Rosie, I pray that you survive TOM's arrival. I know. I lost 2 weigh ins because of TOM. So now I'm trying to gain ground by working it hard for the next 2 weeks so when TOM arrives again, I can be ready! <BR> <BR> I'm down to 153.6. Which means my loss for this month is only about 6 lbs. I'll take it, but I really need to work it out this month so I can drop at least 8 so I can be CLOSER to reaching my goal. <BR> <BR> OK, I pray everyone has a good week this we...

I have to make my ticker current. <BR> Anyway, exercise last week was 20 minutes or 24 minutes total. Sheesh, I've been battling bedtime. It's 1:30 a.m. Cali time. Why am I awake!!! <BR> This is going to be a battle to the end. I must reclaim my sleep time and exercise time. <BR> My goals for the week! <BR> <BR> Rosie, hope your trip to B-more was great!

LOL Hopefully I'll do it this week. <BR> Insanity is actually really good, when I do it! LOL <BR> <BR> Rosie, I know you're doing something right, gurrl! So WTG, those NSVs are so what it's all about. When someone else notices, that's the best part. <BR> <BR> MSG, so sorry to hear about the steroids not working for you. I don't like your back pain.

I'm not feeling like myself and the only thing I know how to do is FAST. When I do a fast my mind clears up. I need that. I feel out of sorts. I guess moving does that to people plus just finishing my TOM last week. So I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. We are seemingly... Sun, 6 Mar 2011 16:29:09 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 2/27 - 3/5 Hey! This my 4th year with SP! Whoa! I just realized that when I wrote in the dates for this week! LOL <BR> <BR> Anyway, TOM arrived Friday... and check this out, we finally got a place closer to the church we're working with and guess what, on our first load of stuff, I forgot my scale. That's so insane! Me, who spends every waking morning with that thing, forgot it! <BR> <BR> So I don't know how much I weigh. They have an "analog" type scale and I used it but I don't trust it... ...

LOL Maybe y'all had V-week! <BR> Anyway, the ticker is current. <BR> I decided since we had to "evacuate" from where we were staying, and come into Sac, I needed to just take the weight of Friday as my "official weigh in." <BR> God is doing things for my family and I'm so grateful. <BR> We have been offered a place to house sit the whole time my hubby is doing Bi... Mon, 21 Feb 2011 15:55:42 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 2/13 - 2/19 <em>26</em> <BR> <BR> Hey, ladies... sorry I'm late! <BR> We had a 3 day fasting and prayer weekend. So I was gone and hungry. LOL!!! But we all survived. It was great! The LORD really blessed. <BR> <BR> Went to the farmer's market yesterday and got some produce. I so love that place. This morning for b-fast I had a salad, and steamed turnips, potatoes, and onions, with one avocado. It was so good. For dessert I had one of those tiny bananas (they grow 'em in the Philippines and ...

I'm down 2.4 from last week. <BR> <BR> Not sure how it will work out this week. Don't know if I'm going to start to normalize. I really don't want to count cals.

Using an internet stick which DH uses a majority of the time. <BR> <BR> So here goes... I know I'm gaining weight and not gaining ground so keep me in your prayers.

Keep in mind, I've lost 4 lbs since Monday. <BR> <BR> Is that crazy or what??? <BR> <BR> I gained so much weight from eating all that bread and flour. We were short on things and all I could do was make bread stuff. So I'm on a no wheat flour diet until further notice. I can eat sprouted wheat, etc... but I can't eat wheat flour. It pounds me everytime! <BR> <BR> I miss my PB & J sandwich already : ( <BR> <B...

Had a lot of trips to make to the stores to get stuff for DH. <BR> <BR> Thursday was our 9th anniversary. <BR> <BR> It was just crazy. Not ideal for ORDER and EXERCISE.

Can you say water weight gain???? <BR> <BR> Anyway, so I'm not doing the scale thing. <BR> <BR> Today, I begin week 2 of INSANITY.

But after the breakfast I had... not so sure! <BR> <BR> The good news is the LORD has answered my prayers. I knew He would, but I tell you I was getting weary w/ waiting. The Bible says "Hope deferred drieth the bones." That's certainly how I felt.

Was up so early to help easy my chest pain (related to being ill) that I couldn't rely on my weigh in weight. Normally I weigh in daily... and the last thing I take it is usually water at about 9 or 10 pm ... giving me well over 5 hours before I weigh in in the a.m. And well, I was in a tub at 3 a.m. and had to drink water while in the tub... so I couldn't d...

It's pretty simple... it's the doing it that's the challenge. <BR> <BR> I lost .4 lb and basically gained it all back after eating last night w/ the cousins.

It doesn't have to be 30 minutes in a row, it can be in chunks... just to move would be a good thing considering all the other stuff I'll be doing. <BR> <BR> Another goal I have is to eat a lot earlier in the day. It's already 9 a.m. and I've not eaten yet... so on days like these I need to be extra careful. <BR> <BR> ...

So this is where I'm at. <BR> The current Goal is to get back to the 140s before the month is out. We'll see. There's a lot going on with our family and it's effecting me in a major way... not with eating though... God is in control of everything... <BR> <BR> let's pray for one ...

In this leg of our challenge we are being accountable for our caloric intake and nutrition intake for 6 weeks. Of course, adding in exercise is a great bonus! <BR> <BR> I think overall we did very well with all of the above. I know for me personally, being accountable for my caloric intake on this challenge has helped me to stay on track more than I have in a while. Thanks GG's <em>247</em> ...

Hey GG's! <BR> <BR> I'm so glad that so many of us joined the Project Fine in 09 challenge. I wish more of us would, but in the meantime, I have a question for you. <BR> <BR> Are Goal Getta's really trying to get some goals up in herre? I'm asking because this is the best time to make a clean start, but I don't see a lot of people posting for the challenge. <BR> <BR> I'm not gonna let up on you if you're a GG. Imagine that I'm an OGG (Original GG) and didn't make my goal last year. Man... Tue, 6 Jan 2009 18:32:23 EST GGG(Goal Getta Gab) 1/4 to 1/10 Good morning GGs!! Rise & Shine!

In fact, I'd like to imitate a BBQ challenge that got the original Goal Gettas together. <BR> <BR> I'm going to post a challenge in holiday time frames throughout the year. Carla or I may post an additional one whenever necessary. <BR> <BR> For instance, if I post a challenge on losing pounds, those of us who have met our goal wouldn't get anything out of it so then we'd have anothe...

It may not seem like a big deal to consume a hundred or so fewer calories than you're supposed to each day, but that's a dangerous — and incorrect — assumption. <BR> It is absolutely 100 percent essential to eat enough calories! If you don't, it will destroy your metabolism. It's like telling your body that you're starving. I... Mon, 8 Sep 2008 16:55:10 EST GGG (Goal Getta Gab) 9/7-9/13 Hey everyone... how are things going?

Hi Everyone <BR> <BR> We've started to have more of a problem recently with "chain" messages. For example, you're asked to send something along to 10 of your friends, and before you know it you're getting this same message (or a similar one) from lots of different people. <BR> <BR> I think a lot of these are very nice, but not everyone wants them. So we're going to ask that people stop forwarding these along- either as SparkMail messages or comments on SparkPages. Please pass the word along... Tue, 10 Jun 2008 11:09:15 EST
