I actually did it too but I didn't count it because it was weight I lost, regained and lost again. So I have updated my page with my commitment on how I plan to get there and I too commit to lose 10 pounds in 2013. emoticon

Yes, emoticon

I've been bad the last 2 weeks. Ate good foods but then mindless eating on top of it.
So it is time to whittle away another 10 for me also in this year of 2013 !! emoticon

YES, I AM HAPPY WITH MY WEIGHT AND THE WAY I LOOK AND FEEL. DH THINKS HE SHOULD STILL LOSE A FEW POUNDS. EVEN THOUGH I THINK HE LOOKS FINE NOW. HE HAS LOST THAT BELLY HE USED TO HAVE.
HE HAS LOTS OF ENERGY.

NOW WE WILL SEE WHERE THIS NEW WAY OF EATING WILL TAKE US. NO BIG CHANGES YET. JUST SEEM TO HAVE STABILIZED. WE WILL SEE.
ACCORDING TO DR. FUHRMAN YOUR BODY WILL STOP LOSING WHEN YOU REACH THE WEIGHT YOU ARE MEANT TO BE.

Pat et al,

I planned to start reading "Super Immunity" today then came across this site. And I read everything, starting with the end of 2011's challenges. I am terrible at following through with challenges and really admire Pat's devotion to staying in touch AND having successes. Gotta make a move (and my biggest failing is moving !) and drop another 7 pounds That, at least, is my present goal to work on.

I agree with you and have been trying to eat this way since June. It sounds like the same info I got in eat to live. He talks a lot about reversing many cardiovascular issues and it does not take long to start reaping the benefits. I am trying to be an example for my grown children as I did not grow up eating this way so neither did they. The biggest thing I notice is my energy level is so high. A couple weeks ago I went to stay with my mom and did not have my usual morning green smoothie or salads through out the day. My enery level dropped. Ladies it works!!!!! There are so many great recipies for plant based entrees that you don't miss the meat. Initially it seems like alot of work, but as you learn to make diffeent dishes, make extra and freeze for another day. I can't say enough.

I am so glad you saw the picutre Happymom!!!!

after watching " Forks Over Knives" video on NETFLIX yesterday, DH and I are starting THE WHOLE FOODS plant based diet today. Research has shown that eliminating meats and dairy from our diets may be the only way to protect ourselves from getting further heart disease and cancer and can even reverse what has already started. SINCE BETWEEN US WE HAVE ENTERTAINED BOTH WE ARE GOING TO GIVE IT OUR BEST EFFORTS.
T his will take a couple weeks to fully implement as we have frozen salmon and chicken breasts to use up first but when eating out we can choose all vegetarian diet.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO WATCH 'FORKS OVER KNIVES " TO MAKE UP YOUR MINDS. IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!

emoticon for the reminder on how important goal setting and planning is. I'm off to stay with mom next week and this time I am taking my fruits, veggies and blender with me. I will plan my meals before I leave instead of thinking I will do so once I get there.

I learned to make an energy soup a couple weeks ago at the plant based festival. It was all types of green veggies thrown into the vitamix and it was really quite tasty and filling. But more importantly it was very easy to put together and a great way to get in more veggies. I'm learning......... emoticon


And I will lose 10 pounds in 2012. emoticon

HI FRIEND--
WE ALL HAVE THE SAME GOAL HERE AND TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
THIS ADVICE IS A REMINDER TO ME AS WELL AS THE TEAM.

LOSING WEIGHT IS MORE THAN SETTING A GOAL.
TO GET THERE-WE HAVE TO KEEP THAT GOAL IN MIND AT ALL TIMES.--TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
LEARNING AND APPLYING ALL THE GREAT IDEAS WE CAN FROM SPARKS

THINKING AHEAD BEFORE WE PURCHASE FOOD.
TAKING SMALLER PORTIONS OF EVERYTHING EXCEPT VEGGIES.
INCLUDE FRUITS DAILY.
TAKE PRIDE IN ADDING EXTRA STEPS TO OUR DAY.
ADD A LITTLE EXTRA TIME TO OUR WORKOUTS.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD TO THIS LIST LIST AND SHARE WITH US.

WE NEED ALL THE MOTIVATION WE CAN GET!

HUGS, PAT

This is my goal too. However, it's been my goal for a long time to no avail. 10 lbs doesn't seem like much but my doctor seems to think this is a good number (for now). Now that I know someone has the goal maybe I'll get results.

Does anyone have a scale that gives different numbers every time you get on it. I even bought a new one but didn't help.

Thanks Pat, I am tired tonight. Our Son, his Son and Daughter and her two daughters were here today. They all have jobs assigned to them by our Son. The little one (7) did some mopping on our back porch, they had taken the carpet up and it needed to be cleaned. I did most of the mopping, but she wanted to help. Then some raked leaves and bagged them, each worked and got things done that needed to be done. They are all coming to church with me Sunday, we are having a BBQ after church, the men will grill hamburgers and hot dogs, and the women will bring dishes they are famous for. Then he is going to take me up to the cemetary were Brooks is, his plate has been engraved, and in place and we want to see it. Have some Red, White and Blue Carnations with an American Flag. He loved his country.
Our Granddaughter and her hubby and children will follow us. So Sunday is going to be a busy day. Tomorrow I go and get hair done, then get groceries, and then come home and put them up, and make the macaroni salad.

Hope you have a great weekend. I can't believe July is almost here.

i am so glad that your storm has passed and it is good that you didn't suffer flooding in your area. sorry about your leaky roof, though. if you do need repairs, hopefully your insurance will cover it..
our whole comuniity had to get new roofs last year after a storm. thankfully we did have coverage.
glad you have a handy man available.
Hugs, Pat

Pat, finally today was calm. It was worse than any hurricane I have been through. Never saw so much rain. Did a lot of damage in Florida. Luckily our section was okay as far as flooding.
We did develop a leak in the roof, so now wondering if I am going to have to put on a new roog. Our handyman came and did something that he thought would help.

Pat, don't feel guilty. Just enjoy each other, and never take each other for granite. He would not want to live like he was. He was always a very active man, and loved his yard and home. When it got that he couldn't do these things, then he was not happy. Yes, I have a lot of friends that have lost their DH's, and it is hard, but we have to realize that he is in no more pain. It was hard on our Son this past Father's Day (the first) without his Dad being here.
The holidays are going to be hard this year, but we will make it, and thankful for all the holidays we had together. Would have been 62 years in Sept.

Hugs
Marsha

I know you miss your DH , Marsha. It must be terribly lonely for you . I have many friends like you who have lost their DH's and have had to carry on without them. I feel doubly fortunate and almost guilty to still have mine around . I give thanks every day for while I still have him around.
Hugs to you, Pat

Pat, tell DH happy 88th. Tomorrow is a new day. Glad that you had good company, and good food. We are having really bad rainy weather. I have had to go out to let water out of pool, and DH always took care of this. Sure do miss him......I just hope it don't overflow.
Have a good day, we are to have weather like this through Tues they are saying. Wanted to take a nap, but afraid to close my eyes because of watching the pool water.

Hopefully I will get back to Losing
again. Not today though. Daughters just treated us to a wonderful German restaurant meal in celebration of DH's 88th BD . We tried to go easy just tasting a small serving of every dish, served- family style. But even that added up to more calories than we needed, of course. Wonderful day, wonderful children.

I wish I could say I have lost pounds, but just the opposite -- I have gained ten pounds! Yesterday, my PT put me through strength and balance tests you wouldn't believe. I was wiped out at the end of the hour. Also, yesterday, my naturopath took hair samples to send in to the lab. I will see her on July 2 to know the results. I'm hoping something shows up that I can work on, as the blood work from last week indicated I was OK. With better nutrition, better sleep, physical therapy, and added exercise, I expect to be feeling better soon.

I did five minutes of core and leg exercises this morning before getting out of bed. Then this afternoon, while watching taped shows of "The Closer," I did two five-minute sets on the Rebounder and two 30-minute sets on the bike for a total of 75 minutes of exercise. I added tension on the bike so that was partly strength training, too. Hugs, R


GO FORTH AND BE A BLESSING.

That is wonderful on losing the weight, and hope the PT will help. My balance isn't the best.
Have a good evening.
Hugs and prayers to all.

I still have hopes.
My doctor was impressed that I have lost 16 pounds since she met me for first time 4 years ago. And she was familiar with and respects
SPARKPEOPLE too!
