That's great Carol that you can work to get your projects accomplished.

When my husband died I was no longer able to work since I am legally blind and can't drive. There isn't any public transportation up here. (still in the dark ages up here) If I could drive I would probably be still working.

Burnin-upturtle, I hope they will find out what is causing your mysterious illness. Seems like they should know something.

I think that's pretty neat. I would love a part time job, but don't know what kind of employee I would be. I have some health issues. Like today I have been feeling sick since last night and I get this way once a week. Have talked to the doctor about it but he doesn't seem to think it is any thing to worry about.

Well, Ginny, it's kind of both emoticon If I want to get my house projects done in my lifetime, the extra money will help me realize that goal emoticon . I also love working part-time because I'm one of those people who likes to work emoticon This job has ideal morning hours and I'm off on Fri., Sat. and Sun. so I'm loving it!

Congrats Burninup for doing the stairs. I don't have many stairs around me but I do use them whenever I can. I'm still going to yoga and water aerobics 5 days a week besides walking the dog.

Carol, are you working because you want to or you need to? I don't think I would want to work anymore. Extra money would be nice though.

Have a wonderful day,

Happy Tuesday Everyone! We are quickly getting to the end of the month. Can you believe it will be December on Saturday! emoticon I am delighted that thanks to Spark I am 2 sizes smaller then I was last Christmas emoticon

Burnin-Up - Good for you - using the stairs! emoticon I look around and see everyone fighting to get a parking space right at the door of the store - or waiting for the next elevator, rather then walk up a flight of stairs. No wonder the U.S. is leading the world in obesity now! Yes, there are days when my back and hip hurts so badly I'll try to get a closer parking spot but, whenever I can, I opt for the exercise! I was, in fact, thinking at work this morning that I have to start going to the pool and doing my water jogging again. I haven't been to the pool in a couple of months emoticon and I'm feeling the difference in my stamina and my joints! DH went this morning while I was working - he's smarter then me emoticon So, I've decided that I'm putting aside 2 afternoons a week and going to the pool - no matter what!

Hope you are all getting geared up for the upcoming Christmas holiday and making plans to help you keep Sparking through the Food-athons most of us will face emoticon With a little planning and ingenuity, emoticon

Sounds like you are having fun and that is great.
emoticon walked to the library today, a total of 80 minutes and up and down two flights of stairs. I have gotten to the point that if I am only going up 2-5 flights I just use the stairs. Love to get that rush of doing exercise of any kind.

Sounds like everyone survived Thanksgiving and had a fairly good time of it!

Ginny, I can imagine your frustration when the microwave caught fire! Sounds like all's well that ends well, however. I have been semi-MIA also. I just have so many practices for choir and chimes now with Christmas coming up and I started my new part-time job so I'm at the office 4 days a week until 1 p.m. By the time I get home and do what needs to be done, I don't get much time for the computer. I am reading posts and trying to keep up with what's going on with the team though. So many new people! Great!!

My turkey day was fine. We ate at friends' house and they had way too much food. I managed not to do a total pig-out - even the dessert! As usual, I don't want to look at turkey for another 6 months now!

I'm still having wicked pain with my hip/sciatic nerve, especially the right side, so I have problems getting in as much exercise as I'd like to get in. It's hard to walk when the pain is shooting down your leg from your lower back and butt! emoticon I try to walk as much as I can though - in fact, I went thrift shopping with my friend on Sat. and we hit 9 different stores. It was one of those days I could walk but when I'd sit the pain would be horrible because of the pressing on the sciatic nerve. I was driving so it made that part uncomfortable but the shopping itself was good. emoticon I've got to get back to going to the pool for exercise but I don't think I'm going to have much time for anything until early January. Oh well, at least I'm busy and staying out of trouble emoticon

Have a great week everyone!

Carol emoticon

Good afternoon everyone, (AZ)

I hope all had a great Thanksgiving weekend.

I have been MIA since Wednesday. Our internet was up and down then all down and up for 1 second. After hours and hours with Century Link and countless people telling us it was our equipment we finally got hold of someone at Century Link to send someone out to check it. Low and behold, he didn't see how we got any signal at all! Wiring was so old it was almost non existent! He put in new wiring and filters and here we are! Ted sends all his music files via the internet and we do all our banking too. I don't know how we ever got along without it.

My Thanksgiving was supposed to be quiet. Just the 2 of us. Well I invited 2 couples. Only one came though. The other decided to go to Murphy's for dinner. Dinner was really good. Hilight of the day was the microwave catching on fire with two casseroles still to be heated. Did get it done and everything turned out just fine.

Hope all of you are having a great day.

It's nice that instead of typically packing on the pounds in November, I am losing them (albeit slowly)!

Had a great day.
Worked a little, socialized a little and got little exercise.
Will change the exercise bit tomorrow.
Plan to go to the gym for a couple of hours.

Mornin'...

Hope it was a bountiful and safe Thanksgiving for all! I've suddenly realized that I'm like the rest of the 98% of the population! The holiday season does bring on a more hectic pace than usual. It's been difficult to get to the Boards, and even tracking has been a challenge. But lessons learned -- I'm like a trained puppet and can pretty much guesstimate the value of every morsel I eat! So I come out of Thanksgiving not under any lbs., but not over either! Hooray... Took a few minutes to catch up on last week's posts. And am reminded of what a wonderful Team we are. The spirit, enthusiasm, support, and encouragement has made a tremendous impact on my weight loss journey. I, for sure, wouldn't be this far without ya'll.

Wishing everyone a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

Regards, ~Diane emoticon emoticon

Got over the cell phone loss and bought a new one.
I was able to retrieve all my numbers and transfer them to the new one.
It was a costly lesson to learn.

Had a wonderful day today and am enjoying a quiet evening at home.

Promised myself that I would not do any black Friday shopping.
I did it anyway.
There were consequences...
Lost my cell phone!
That will teach me to listen to my voice of reason!

Today is black Friday and I don't usually shop on this day but the Goodwill was having a half off sale so I went. I bought a pair of pants, a sweater and a shirt for my Hubby. I am going to give them to him on Christmas day.

Hi, Everyone! I haven't been posting lately but have been trying to at least check in and see what's going on with everyone. A lot of you know that DH and I have had some very stressful medical issues over the last month and then my little Pug got sick on top of everything. Thankfully all turned out okay with DH and with the doggy so I really have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! I have been logging in on Spark most days but haven't had time to track my meals - which was a big thing for me. However, what I learned is that because I did track faithfully - every single day - for 6 1/2 months, I learned how to eat properly. Because of my new discipline with food and portion size, I have maintained my weight loss. Now, I'm back to tracking and I am ready to shed those last 10 lbs. and be at my goal weight! Spark really works because it teaches us how to eat "right" emoticon I know now I'll never have to "go on a diet" again and that's the greatest accomplishment for me. emoticon

The other wonderful part of Spark People is the people! I have made so many great friends here on this team emoticon and you all gave me so much support and encouragement as I was going through DH's medical troubles. I am so thankful for all of you emoticon

I will be reading the threads and responding to things when I can - and I am going to make it a point to find 15 min. to enter all my meals in my tracker - even if it's at bed time emoticon I won't be able to be as active as I was in the past because of commitments to my two choir groups and my musical chimes group (we are practicing like crazy for our Christmas performances!) and - good news - I finally found the ideal part-time job and I start right after Christmas! Still, I'll be popping up here whenever I can and look forward to reading your posts and blogs, and cheering you all on.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving emoticon Keep on Sparking!

Did my 30 minutes of cardio today but just don't feel like doing strength training. I get like this some times just in a down mood to do exercise. How do you handle this when it happens to you?

Kathryn, where do you live in CA? I lived in Long Beach for 30 years. Moved to Prescott, AZ 20 years ago.

Today it is cloudy and a little cool. We were hoping for rain yesterday and today but so far have not seen any.

My hubby and I will also be having a quiet dinner for 2.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hugs,
Ginny

Sunny and clear here in my part of Ca. The next two days will be rainy and then clear for Thanksgiving. Hubby and I will just have a nice quiet dinner together. I am in charge of what we eat, it will be turkey breast roast, collard greens and stuffing. Just a simple little dinner for two.

Hi everyone,

Starting over after a year plus of grief and loss and the speedy addition of 30 pounds. Feel the emotional weight lifting, and ready to lose the body weight too...feels a bit more challenging at 52 than it did at 45, the last time I I had 20 pounds to lose...looking forward to it, though!

Have a great day, y'all...

Good morning all. This will be my 3 rd day of disciplined tracking and I am down a few pounds too. I joined Tops on Thurs. eve as I need that accountability. We are expecting a sunny 48 degree day here in Ontario again. Please keep that warm Fl. air flowing as in 5 weeks I will be there for 3 months away from our expected snowy cold winter.

Good Morning, All! A special Hello to all the newbies! emoticon

I am still recovering from the fall I took in Oct. Getting adjusted and seem to be better, but still have days of dizziness and right sided (That's the side of my head that I hit when I fell face forward) headaches. The ND and Spark People both say I need more protein. I read on here that if I find it difficult --because of not being much of meat eater--to add protein drinks. Did that yesterday and actually went over the lowest amount needed. ND does not want us doing dairy because of the respiratory problems. Always worse in the colder, damper months

Looking forward to a good, healthy week with family!. Have a great day, All!

Good morning folks! It's a chilly start to the day, but that won't last long. The temps are in the 60's here in metro Atlanta. It's supposed to be a beautiful day today. I'm so glad I got all the to-do list done yesterday!

This is my first week back watching what I eat and take a look at that ticker! 10.8 pounds. Yes, I know a lot of that is fluid that I was holding on to, but all the same, I'm now carrying that around with me any more. It's so encouraging to see the numbers drop. Makes me motivated to make good choices this week as I walk into my Mom and Dad's home with all my extended family bringing in goodies that I don't want to eat. Mom's roasting a turkey. I'm making a veggie platter. We'll have some other healthy things, but if it gets tough, I can snatch turkey or veggies and occupy myself with that. I'm also in charge of the gift exchange, so I'll have something to do that will keep me busy.

Enjoy your Sunday! Hope your choices are good for you!

Today it is raining really hard so I am staying in doors.

Two of my neighbors got run over by a train, makes me think about how life can end in a minute. I hugged my hubby a little more today feeling blessed that we are alive.

Who I am really keeps surprising me.
Be unstoppable!!!!
