Yep! That's the game I was talking about. :)

J0ETTE You are talking about Operator. My grandmother had 14 kids so I had lots of cousins. When we slept at grandma' we were all lined up in sleeping bags in her huge living room, probably 15-20 of us, the rest were at Aunt Jean's. We would play Operator and it was fun. The secret was never what it started as. We would laugh and grandma would come out and say if you don't quiet down you are going to get holy hannah. That means you are in trouble. What precious memories(sigh) I miss her to this day.

Hi Roses17. Welcome to the team. The challenge is different every week. It keeps it fresh and fun to do.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie

Hi Roses17 and welcome to the team. We're glad you're here. Let us know if you need any help anywhere and someone will be here for you. Judging from a notification I got, I have a feeling you are little confused and not certain about what to do and where to go. If that's the case, please let us know what you need help with and we'll help you out. :)

What a great group! Kudos, kudos to all! All that matters is that these things have been shared by and through everyone! Irish, you have really stepped up to the plate as have many others here. I love seeing all this participation here. If sharing something with all our others here is what it is all about. Helping one another wherever and whenever it's needed.

You're all absolutely wonderful and you all "look mahvelous darlings". :)

As for the bad back situations, I too have a condition in my back and have to be careful with what I do. Sometimes (more times than not) I tend to overdue it which might be why you may see me go dormant but I try to stick my head in here as much as I can.

You guys are all FANTASTIC and all I can say is keep up the good work!

Lol somehow I feel like we all participated in the kids game "telephone" or whatever that game was called where they all sit in a circle and someone starts a secret and it gets passed around to the end with hopes of the ending being the same as it was when started... But it never is.

I take full responsibility. I mentioned that inspirational video and couldn't remember who posted it. So when IRISH mentioned Superachiever, she was actually trying to help me out by reminding me. SEE? It's my fault!! And I also invented the mullet. That's my fault tooooo! LOL emoticon

The benefits of having a Sparkpage is the community around you can help keep you encouraged and lift you up on the down days with special stuff you need a page to have access to.

IRISHANGIE,
what a great resource! Thanks for sharing it and good for you for getting in your exercise.

This was shared by another spark person who posted it on another team and gosh I'm having a mental block about her username (so I apologize to her).

But this guy had some SERIOUS neck, back and knee pain. I started watching this and though.... oh great, another "inspirational" video. I was crying when it was over. Maybe this will help all of us who have pain and have used it as an excuse. It's a reason that exercise is difficult but many people use it as an excuse not to exercise. Not this guy:

Hi, welcome to the Spark Challenge Team, my name is Angie, and I suffer from Multiple Sclerosis and I have a bad back too, and also deal with daily pain. Try this website Limited Mobility Lifestyle Center, it is so good!!! They have videos for people who cannot stand for long periods of time or are chair bound, exercises are not too strenuous but they help immensely to build up strength. I have been doing them for about 3 weeks now, and I am even starting to do regular exercises which I feel I can do. Check it out and see if it helps!!! So glad you chose our team, if you stay on the diet and do what exercises you can I'm sure you will see results, and I will be beside you every step of your journey to a healthier and happier you!! emoticon emoticon

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

I have the power to change myself!

I deal with back pain on a regular basics each day, but I'm tired of the pain stopping me from exercising and doing things I really want to do. I'm overweight, has tried many avenues to loose weight with no results. I eat lost of fruit and vegetables , drinks lots of water, avoid fast foods try to eat proper portions but, still with little or no weight lose. I'm desperate for suggestions or serious help. I need to loose roughly about 85 lb. to reach my desired weight.
