Well anytime that you wanna walk lmk ...I have been taking it easy recently cause I am recovering from a bad cold ( two weeks and counting) but yeah if it is not blowing like crazy I might be more up to going on one .

I only really understand myself, what I'm really thinking and feelings, when I've talked it over with my circle of female friends. When days go by without that connection, I feel like a radio playing in an empty room.

Hello Angie & Ruby,
I did mean I work closer to Angie, though I live closer to Ruby. Diamond Creek Blvd is one block west of Woodcreek Oaks & Blue Oaks. For me, that's about a 5 minute walk, though in the wind we've had for 2 days now, I haven't been outside much. Well, maybe it'll end soon and I can start walking again.

Who I am really keeps surprising me.

Nope that would have to be you, as I do not live near Blue Oaks LOL

Good for you getting the stroller and such...especially with the weather getting prettier! I walked yesterday, took a lot out of me after being sick , but it was so good to get out!

I walked the mall today and was bored out of my mind....everyone there has a partner and I find it very lonely, just does not have same vibe as the mall in Texas where I walked , and there is not an opportunity to chat up the seniors like I did there ...so it was kind of saddening cause I was really missing my walking buddies that made it so worth going everyday ...oh well , maybe one day I will meet someone that can walk daily or nearly so with me at the mall and outdoors ...I know we will get a chance to walk together soon...but I really do need a daily partner ...I am "forced" to go and drive my youngest to work nearly each day so it would be great to have a partner to meet each day after I drop her off.

I hope that you two can connect that would be awesome for you both!

Hi,
My name is Lisa, and I just joined SparkPeople today. I noticed that you live right down the street from where I work at Blue Oaks & Diamond Creek. I usually work from 8-4:30, and would love to have someone to walk with at the parks out there. Want a walking partner?

An allowance has always helped ..I can spend money with the best of them if I am bored or depressed or instead of eating ....I too can put us in thye red pretty quick, but we devised a way of doing our ledger that we section up and divide the money so that I do not spend what is meant for food or bills or gas for the cars , so we section off my coffee /Jamba money , I have what i call cookie jar money and then everything else is ear marked, it has worked really good for us. We have been so poor that the church delivered food to us , so I know what it is like to have young ones and no money and stuck at home!


Well I can not seem to loose weight at all right now between the hormones and the hypo thyroid issues that I have ...BUT in the past when I was your age and even just as soon as a few years back I was very successful at loosing weight, so any questions you have I most likely have the answer. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

you can reduce the pooch with loads of lower ab work , walking and cutting back on sugar , alcohol and non complex carbs ...some can loose it all together and some can reduce it enough that it is not as noticeable at least in clothing...I have that pooch still ,as the skin stretched out a bit with as much weight as I gained with my first pregnancy , and it is just something I live with ...but it is not too bad ...so yes there is hope and IF you work out those abs as you loose weight you have a better chance of not needing surgery.

Your body will never be 100% of what it was before kids, but it does not have to be as bad as you are imagining .

I hope this has helped put your mind at ease

haha, that's great about your allowance. I been trying to convince mine that's what I need, I kinda have a problem realizing what I'm spending and tend to put us in the red on a weekly bases.. lol I just cant help it, really I don't see how fast money goes, he get SO mad at me but I'm like... well! I AM BORED! haha bad excuse but its so true, I tend to spend when I'm bored, or sad. BAD HABIT, yet another one I need to break.

Loosing weight is hard on me cause I don't know much about loosing weight its only after I had kids did I have a weight issue, and I always secretly told myself, I never want to look like my mother who never tried loosing weight after babies (shes got 3) and her body type is very similar to mine and I'm sad to say, I look just like her. =/

I just wonder, I have a nice big chunk of saggy skin around my belly its still got fat in it but its so handy... loosing weight will it go away? I don't think it will and that's scary. I seen shows where larger people had lost weight and then had to get the skin removed. Do you have any idea if that is like rare? or what? emoticon

We sound so similar ! I am just already to the been there done that stage .

Yeah it can be pricey to have JJ I especially spend a lot of money on it cause each time I take one of my daughters I buy them one as well so I end up with 8.00 for the days that I walk...once they are working and have money again it will drop to just the price of a 16 oz ...I have learned to downsize servings to be able to still have what I want , both cause of cost and calories....I am lucky though my DH has always been great, he gives me an allowance and what I spend it on is my business, once it is gone it is gone, but at least it is mine to spend...it is a nice bit of freedom..it is not a lot , but it does me just fine.

We shall have to get you a Jamba , at least a small one when we go to the mall ...one should not be deprived of that kind of yummy LOL

That is greatemoticon Don't over do and remember if you do any toning give at least a day break in between. Yeah 8 glasses is hard, especially in cooler weather, I get mine through drinking hot tea this time of year.

Just did my 6 rounds at the mall and grabbed a Jamba Juice, which is my lunch and snack today as I got the regular size, they made too much and so they gave me the next size up, but I am getting all my fiber and protein for the day so that is good ....I will just have vegies tonight. I think we may go to Nuggets wine tasting , so need to leave a few calories for that.

I feel a little weak lol, but it does feel good. my kids are in the bath and I gonna get a shower. You know you'd think drinking 8 glasses of water would be easy.. but wow, its not LOL.

Sweetie I had three daughters by the time I was 25! the first two are only 22 months apart and the last one is three years younger than the middle, all are OCD , ADD and so much more, I know what it is like to be around kids that are nutso...mine still are! It is a war zone here at my house most days!

I hear you on the driving thing, my oldest put off getting her license till the very day that we were moving!! She wanted to test in Texas, as it was easier....but she had known how to drive since 15! So basically 5 years ...she too had phobias, she still does to some extent, she does not drive too much even now ....her car has issues right now so she can't but when it was fine she choose not to. So yeah I get it.

Ok so guessing you have car seats....so when you recoup from Christmas and such and get some walking shoes we will get you out and about at least once a week for a good walk and we can chat while the kids are in the play land area , sure they would enjoy that.

Trust me I have been where you are so many times I can not count!

Told my oldest that she should add you as a pal too as you are only 4 years apart ...the more friends the better to help keep you sane during the rough times! And I know just from what you have said there are plenty of those to go around!

Ok I am off to take daughter number 3 to work and walk with daughter number 1 at the mall ...should be interesting as she is not much into exercise LOL

Yah I am really dependent on my boyfriend, I don't even know how to drive yet, I do really want to learn but I am very scared. I have wrecked my dads car at 14, and was in two more accidents (passenger_ when I was a teen also so I think of it as a little phobia. I do have a double stroller but its at my moms... in storage, great job there me! lol.

I wouldn't mind the trip out, I admit I am a little shy at first but I don't mind meeting new people. Plus they rent double strollers at the mall! hehe.
I warn you now Miss Ruby, my kids are nutzo. Well more so my daughter.. well she's 3, I guess you wouldn't expect less. but they are at a tough age. Makes doing ANYTHING hard.

I really like the fact that I had them back to back.. SOMETIMES, but mostly I think I was NOT THINKING lol. As soon as we get some spare money I will buy some new tennis's, cause the ones I have no wont do for walking. We been broke since Xmas! Boyfriend bought a SUV for our christmas present! lol been playing catch up since. hopefully next week.... or the week after that. This whole check went to rent lol. OI!
anyway I will talk to you later.
Take care!

Hi! Sunshine!

Ok that is funny as I have been called a Senior Stalker, rarely have I had friends my age...98% of my friends in TX were seniors, all the people I walked with were 60 plus years of age, my best pal was a gentleman of 68! He became like a dad to me. My other best pal there was in her late 40's and when I lived in CA before ( born and raised) I did have one pal my age , but always loved my morning with the seniors having coffee and chatting...I have always been pals with people 10-30 years or more my senior ...maybe it is cause I love the music, movies, fashion and stuff of eras gone by that I can find stuff to chat with them about, and I love hearing about the good old days!

I do walk in the Galleria...and when the weather gets better I plan to walk a lot of the trails here locally.

Guessing no car for you...boy you really are stranded! You must be going bonkers! Do you have a double stroller?? Or do you have to try to push one while one walks? Maybe once a week or so depending on my schedule I could bring over my SUV and we can load up the car seats and the stroller and we can get you out walking for an hour at the mall , just for a change of scenery! No rush , I am sure you want to chat more before jumping into a face to face.

I am "forced" to go mall walking for the most part cause my youngest works at Nugget market and so when she has to be at work I make my trip count and walk ...I prefer to walk outdoors , even if cold, as long as it is sunny out, can not stand the gloom!

I only really understand myself, what I'm really thinking and feelings, when I've talked it over with my circle of female friends. When days go by without that connection, I feel like a radio playing in an empty room.

Lol, thats kinda funny you mention your age. I of course have had friends my age, but most of my good friends are usually a nice bit older then me, I have always gotten along with people older then me, I sort of prefer it that way sometimes. A lot of people tell me that I am very mature for my age. So don't worry about it too much its a normla thing for me. I just haven't felt 20something since I was 18. heheh.

ok well you have the store checkers, I have those too , and my hair stylist and um let me see the guy at the Jamba juice at the mall where I walk hehehehe

But let me tell you I met my best pal that I had in Texas at her bistro before it closed as a patron there and then my other friends were a group of Seniors that I met at the mall there who walked everyday and took me under their wing ...I miss them the most, even more than my folks most days!

I have for years always had a large group of friends so it is odd for me too , but being here is still a positive move so I am glad that we did it...my youngest just made a group of friends from a youth group she goes to, and started working as well so she will make friends there, my 19 and 20 year old are still looking for jobs so never even get a chance to make friends as they just sit around the house waiting to hear about work...and my 20 year olds BF is in Virgina ( Navy) and so she is missing friends in TX and her BF and friends in Virgina too.

We all have things we wish to change within ourselves and our outward appearances, you have made a great first step and I know that being here on Spark will help even more....I really suggest the group that I am on Making Life Happen on Purpose...great at uplifting messages and support and motivation over and above weight loss! I as I said there is also many young women your age here within the group too! And now you have this older broad LOL

Thanks, that was really sweet, and true. I plan on being a SAHM till the kids are in school, then maybe get some sort of job myself, thinking about medical billing, but I will def. have to go to school for that.

I still consider myself new to the area too, I mean, I don't know a single soul the closest to friends I have here are the checkers at the store behind me cause I go about 3-4 times a week lol. kinda creepy huh? ha ha

I used to be pretty popular and its just really strange for me to go from that to who I am today. Its just not me, I'd love to change a lot about myself weight being #1.

What is life with out hope!

I know how tough it is to be stuck at home with young ones ...and we tend to loose a little of ourselves as well in the process of raising our children...I know that I have, I have 95% of the last 20 years been a SAHM , and with my youngest working but not driving i am still rather tied to her and what is going on in her life, so still rather stuck to her schedule .

Then to be new to an area, though you have been here 7 years , it is still newer than people that lived here all their lives ...it is tough and lonely too. I had just made a life for myself in Texas after leaving CA and my life long home and friends and here we did it again , right after I had made some great friends and back to square one ...so if you ever need to chat I am here , one e-mail away.

I only really understand myself, what I'm really thinking and feelings, when I've talked it over with my circle of female friends. When days go by without that connection, I feel like a radio playing in an empty room.

HI! We live mere moments from each other ....I am down on Main street. I have been here since October and have met one person through Spark who is my weekly walking partner and have chatted with several ladies from this group...give it time there is several ladies on here looking for friends and walking partners that have young children ( mine are all grown 16,19,20) read through the postings and I bet before long you will have a nice circle of friends.
