@Natasha_D1 Go to your spark page, then see all awards, then manage trophies, then add weight loss & SparkVersary Trophies. You can add them yourself there when you reach them.

My goal for June is to get my butt back on track! I have put on about 10 pounds since Jan and want to get them off, plus the weight that I didn't get off before! So, far, I'm on the right track. :)

Hi everyone, I'm not new but haven't posted in awhile. I'm sitting here waiting on phone calls. I work from home and enjoy it but sometimes it can be time consuming when there is no calls and I have other things to do.

How is everyone this morning.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Just like Vegas, I am not new to the group, but I haven't posted in a while on here. Figured this post would be the best way to get back in here. ;)

It's raining here today, so it looks like I will be going to the gym after work.

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter.
My weekend went pretty well. I got some things done for work and I got some things down around the house. All things I hope will get me more prepared for my surgery on Wednesday. I wish you all a happy Monday!

I had a great day yesterday with walking my pooch for an hour and then had a fantastic tennis lesson in the afternoon! I am so excited to be playing tennis and look forward to playing more regularly now that I have joined the local tennis club emoticon

Chrimsonfyre = Planing flowers sounds great!! i've been looking at my small condo patio area and thinking it really needs a tidy up and I'm waiting a little longer before potting my few planters. I don't want to plant the flowers and have a cold spell kill them!

emoticon what do you all have planned for the weekend? are many of you on a 4 day weekend with Good Friday & Easter Monday?

Hi all
I've had 2 good days - walked to work both yesterday and ran to work today. Got over 10,000 steps both ways and making some changes to diet - tracking and evaluating what I'm eating and working at decreasing fat intake.

Hoping I'll see a change on the scale to make me feel like I'm seeing results I want to see... Making it worthwhile. Although I know in my head there are so many other NSV... The scale number is the most motivating and satisfying.

How are you all doing?

Good Morning :)

Yesterday was a tough day for me. I did well though the day, work was fine. Meals on track til I got home. i ate pizza for dinner (double what i planned to eat) and then i was SLEEPY.. could not stay awake. had no motivation to go walking with my dog. i ended up napping on the couch while watching tennis and hockey on the tv. I did however DRAG MY ARSE TO THE GYM and got 1/2 hour in on the treadmill of walk / run intervals!!

So while the day wasn't what I had planned and it was a struggle to stay on track with my plan, it WAS NOT A LOSS. I got myself moving, i tracked what I ate, I pushed and today is a new day!

emoticon How do you guys manage your days when they go sideways on you?

I've been tracking my foods the last 3 days and realize I really need to do something about my diet... i didn't think i ate that badly, but apparently i need to cut down on the fat!! I honestly didn't realize my fat intake was so high! as in 34 grams OVER the max daily intake. So here I am now on making some small changes.

I usually eat 2 eggs, ham slices, cheese slice on toast. This morning, I changed it to 1 egg, 2 egg white scramble with 1/2 slice of cheese and 1/2 the ham i usually have. I don't feel deprived yet...

emoticon How have you guys modified your diet? are you strict with meal planning or do you eat what you feel like eating? What changes have you made if any?

I'm new to the team! I'm hoping this team is active and that I can find some great support, ideas & enthusiasm from you all! I'm also hoping that I'll be able to help you along your own journeys!!

A little about me.. i'm 36, live in BC, Canada. I'm single, I live alone with my 7 year old dog and 12 year old cat. I work full time as a registered nurse specializing in TB care (so no shift work for me!)

I'm working at losing weight again - i've been steady at 255-257 lbs for the last 2 years regardless of my activity levels and it's time to bump it up a notch and get back on track. My long term goal is to get back to 175 lbs (which was my high school weight) which puts me at about 80 lbs to lose. I recently saw some pictures from 4 years ago when I was my lowest weight (228 lbs) and I was much happier with myself then but it slow crept up again and i haven' been committed as I was when I was at 228lbs. I now recognize that at that time, i was tracking daily and engage with spark groups/challenges and that in order to get 'back on track' i must get back to doing what works! tracking and reaching out to others who understand what I'm going through!

Feeling Awesome! emoticon

Today my coworker asked how much weight I lost, which isn't too much as I've just started but she said it was noticeable! I told her 6 pounds and she said no, it has to be more than that. I told her that I'm not calling what I'm doing a "diet" (bad 4 letter word). I'm just being more conscientious of what I'm eating.

Regardless of what the scale says - that's a great measurement not to mention a great feeling!!!!

hello everyone,
haven't posted in here in quite a while. I'm looking to get back on track and at least tone up for my brother-in-laws wedding at the end of April. If I happen to lose 20 pounds in that amount of time, it would also be great. Congrats to everyone on all their weight loss and accomplishments. Have a great day!!

Hello
Wow today I had my butt handed to me at work. I usually do medication aid but this month I am scheduled to work the floor as a caregiver on rotating shifts. I am so wiped. I wore my fitbit and got over my 10 000 step goal. My coworkers were looking at my schedule and they are like you are never going to get a sleep schedule. I smiled and said maybe not but I am sure I ll get skinny working all these active hours. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend. emoticon Good night!

Actually...We had a great weekend. We are always on the go with something or the other...but I am a bit kamikaze (sp??)

LOL so Friday with 4 kids home on PD day we went to the museum Mom, 6 kids and our sitter- My hubby was helping a friend move...and that was a long!!! day but great fun! We have a great Children's museum and they went to the IMAX to see the Galapagos 3D so we did well from 11-3 then go home to quick dinner 2 kiddles to Friday evening activities at Church and then...

Hubby and I had a date night!?! LOL it was the beginning of the 3 wks Winter festival here and my hubby is from Barbados and this is his 2nd winter here so...with frostbite warning and an already exhausted momma (who workout prior to walking around a museum for 4 hrs)...was back out on the town same day....We walked about the park were we had a great time saw a fire dance show, stilt walkers beautiful ice sulptures and my hubby...but I was pooped by the time we got home. Total Grace of God our baby slept!!!! 5 hrs straight :)

Today I got kids started on weekend chores, took down my tree, worked out with my girls then went to rehearsals with my girls...( my 15yo and I have music competitions in 3 wks...and that girl is a workaholic like her mamma because she also has a figure skating comp on the same day...praying they aren't at the same times :( ) Made chili for dinner and will finally grace my bed after picking up my kiddle from babysitting for friends.

Anyway tomorrow church, anniversary party for friends, playdates...it never ends...deliberating on either exercising or just stretching? Do I dare attempt it?

Anyway for the past 3 days hit my nutrition goals was not over...so I rewarded myself with a glass of wine :) I know crazy...I don't understand when we are always on the go and busy how I can still struggle with my weight. Anyways...one day at a time...one day closer to swing dancing and belly dancing again. Hmmm maybe a long term goal one day could be to maybe enter a amateur belly dance competition...hmmm...sleep let's sleep first :) Night all...All the best to you folks for tomorrow

But by the Grace of God.

great job with the journal! If you are new to exercise, why not start with just 10 minutes a day? If you are sore, a 10 minute walk should be ok. Just if you are really sore from a strenuous work out the day before, it's ok to take a rest day or a slower day, stretch and heal yourself.

I didn't believe it but journaling about whatever's stressing me out has helped me to stop binging and I've been eating a lot less junk food, now I just need to figure out a way to workout even when I'm sore or tired.

Misty I feel your pain. I have to work this weekend too, although I don't work every weekend it still is a bummer knowing that you can't enjoy it like everyone else does. I do hope you get some time off to enjoy though!

Yup the weekend is here. I am enjoying a cup of coffee, sitting in the quiet with my laptop and my cat playing on spark people :)

Looks like the weather changes here in Dallas brought with it a cold for me. Not so happy about that.

Made it through Halloween unscathed. Still walking daily and trying to make subtle food changes where I can. Still straight out with stress but doing what I can each day and trying to take time to enjoy life a little too.

Hope everyone is doing ok. :)

Mommy_Rx, it sounds like you have quite a lot on your plate - I don't know how you juggle it all. Spark is a great community, and I hope we can encourage/motivate/support each other along this path to better health and healthier choices :) Welcome to the team!

JACQUIDIXON76- I recommend you post this query to the technical thread on the community forum. They usually answer back pretty quick.

Hi I am Mommy_Rx otherwise known as Sleep Deprived Mother of 3 Chronically Ill children (well they are teens now but still chronically ill). emoticon
When everyone is healthy and I am actually able to sleep I can't. I struggle with emotional eating and choose fast food often cause I am just too exhausted and lazy to cook. The demands of my home are zapping my resources. I drink coffee like it flows from the tap just to keep me going. Drinking water almost hurts it is so foreign to me.

I occasionally have to walk my daughter to school (1 mile) and it is physically challenging for me. I end up red in the face, short on breath and in pain (due to past back injuries).

I know changing my lifestyle has to happen in order for me to continue to provide quality care to my family. I was a successful sparker years ago but I have forgotten how to take care of myself or maybe I just chose to not take care of myself. Perhaps I am looking for pity from above. Like hello I need care too SEE!

For the last 15 years, ER visits, inpatient stays and doctors/specialist appointments have been my life. I always feel on the brink of a melt down. I always feel unprepared, stressed and just maxed out. I can't seem to get ahead of it enough to be one of those prepared for anything types of moms. Instead I am always late on refilling meds, tapping my foot at the pharmacy wondering when my last meal was anxious to get home to clean up the house, administer the meds and deal with the next crisis.

One of the stupidest decisions I ever made was choosing to help care for my mother in laws Mom. She had dementia, diabetes and was overweight. Caring for her was physically and mentally challenging on top of taking care of my 3 ER hopping maniacs. I maxed myself out so bad that I mindlessly ran out onto a wet deck and fell down a flight of wet wooden stairs. My back hasn't been the same since. Thankfully it was a wake up call that made me slow down. I chose to not care for Gramma anymore and I put all specialist and non-essential medical appointments on hold for a year. I am passive aggressive. So when I say I chose what I really meant is I ran away from home caused a huge scene made everyone hate me but got the end result I was looking for but sadly lost my support system in the process.

Sigh I need change. I need a mentor/voice of reason to guide me on my journey. I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi, I wondered if anyone could help? I am trying to track my fruit and veg intake on the sliders on the main start page where it also has mood and sleep but if I leave this page when I next go on to it, it is reset back to nil again.

Does anyone know how I can stop this happening?

Thanks

What's the difference between an indoor track and a treadmill? I know it sounds like a stupid question emoticon
I've heard good things about Gold's Gym, but don't have one where I live. I think there might be one in Jacksonville, but I'm not driving 30-45 minutes to go to the gym LOL I know me.

Actually that is one of the ones I am looking into, the only issue is that they do not have an indoor track...and the last time I was there they did have a no contract one that you just paid a little more upfront(don't remember the price). I did enjoy the circuit training room and that is a nice draw for me.The other place I am looking at is Gold's Gym that if I go month to month it is $100 up front and $25 a month and has an indoor track and most like the other gym I was signed up with. So just trying to figure out what is most important.

It DOES require a contract, but I recently joined Planet Fitness. I was very impressed by how well maintained everything seems to be, how friendly the staff was, and how many duplicate pieces of equipment they had! PLUS there are massage chairs, and they had several fans above the workout stations, so I didn't feel like I was melting. All in all, for $20/month I felt it was very reasonable. Did I mention that for that $20 you can take a buddy with you any time you want? If you have someone you work out with regularly, you're really only paying $10/month each!

I am checking in, I have been around although busy and haven't had a chance to check in here. Between work and a few other things I feel like I am spinning my wheels although I may see a light at the end of the tunnel! Yay!! I do have to decide about what to do about exercise since I had to leave my old gym due them dropping my discount. I don't want a contract but at the same time not sure how much of it I am going to use. I have 2 in mind but not sure which way I want to go with it.

Hi Shannon - congratulations on making the decision to be healthy. This is only my second week of active participation, but I have already found that as you log in daily, and participate on the message boards as well as all of the other elements of SP, it helps to keep you motivated. I wish you much success on your journey!

Hi everyone! I have committed myself to be being healthy again. I know in order to achieve this, I need to go participate and utilize SP as much as possible. I will be popping in here daily to chat, help motivate and help in anyway I can.
Hugs,
Shannon

Please excuse any typos as I am posting from my iPad.

I have not been exercising that much this week. i am fighting a chest cold. i have been tired and i cough at least 2 times every 5 minutes, i can't even get through a 1 mile walk without several coughs. i would like this to clear so i can get back to normal.

Don't forget to be awesome.

I need to work harder on my goals and honestly it is a matter of doing what I am supposed to do consistently.

Thanks! This does help, actually. I'm fairly used to watches and bracelets, so I thought the bracelet one would be the most comfortable (and someone also told me you could add a silent alarm that was a vibration) but I WOULD prefer one with the display. I had been thinking about ordering it online, but you're right - going to a store in person would probably give me a better idea of what I'm getting.

I'm working hard to reach my goals, so I will very likely be able to pick one up at the end of October! I want one before I start training for the Virtual Turkey Trot.

I don't have the bracelet one, so I can't tell you about it. I have the Fitbit One which has a clip that I can clip to my bra, have it in my pocket or clip it on the pants...I even think you can have in a purse, but I don't always have my purse with me. The only time it is on my wrist is for sleeping and it is wide so it doesn't bother me too much. I do know that the bracelet(Flex) doesn't have the info displayed on it, where as the One does(which is why I went with the One again).

Maybe go to a store and see if they will let you try it on. I imagine if you are use to a watch, the Flex wouldn't be too much of a problem. Although you might want to do some research because I think some people had issues with it.

I hope this helps! emoticon

LVNDRLADY - Do you really like the Fitbit you have? Is it comfortable to wear? I was thinking about getting the bracelet version as one of my weight loss rewards, but I've never worn any wearable fitness thing and have no idea what to expect.

It is a pedometer but the fitbit one also tracks sleep quality(mostly knows when you are restless and up and moving), calories burns, flights of stairs walked up. So a bit more sophisticated than just a pedometer.

Actually it is and I bought another last night which was cheaper than what I found at some of the stores I visited that were sold out. It is like the spark activity tracker but a different company.

I must say lately I have been feeling lost. I lost my fitbit sometime between Thursday evening and Friday morning and I can't find it anywhere!! So I am off trying to find another one. emoticon

Ate out (Taco Bell :-P). I was SUPER surprised to find out that my favorite nachos are actually less calories than some fast food burgers emoticon I could have done better calorie-wise, but I did much better than I anticipated.

I'm right there with you both! The important thing to remember is that it's not an "all or nothing" mentality. If we slip up and eat, as long as we keep plugging along and get right back on track, we are making progress!

I have to track,track,track...and then work out regularly. I struggle with it all because some days I just want to eat and not worry about it all.

Have you tried the Weight Watchers zero point soup? It might be called WW garden veg soup or something like that emoticon It makes a good snack or light lunch.

For me the only way to get my scale to move is to follow a strict low carb diet and work out at least 3 hours a week. Low carb includes fruit.. The thing with me is that I don't like to cook and most quick things have carbs. I've been making sure to keep veggies that I really like and cold cuts around for quick snacks. I also like to snac on sunflower seeds (without the shell)...

Hi IMREITE! I know what you mean...still plugging along but struggling in every sense of the word. I cannot find the right "answer" I know that there is really no answer but I just haven't found what works best for my body. I did lowfat to see if that would jump start things and it didn't. I know that lower carbs is something that a lot of people push toward however I don't eat many carbs as it is. I don't know....it's just that I love food and I just eat too many calories. I think that's what it all boils down to for me. The question is - how do I get more consistent? I do good for awhile and have willpower and then it just all goes away sometimes. emoticon

still here. i have been very active this week. unfortunatly i oversnacked, mindlessy ate junk food on mon and tues. i did well with portion controls for meals. the mindless snacking is what is my problem. so that is going to be my next healthy habit to work on. i found a fitfoods challenge. i will have to review the snacks list and be mindful of hunger vs cravings.

Don't forget to be awesome.
