My I just realize what the forum says. I can't believe I didn't put up a summer chat. With that said I know have a fall chat.

Keeping busy with my sister here and all is going well.

Have a great day.

Stop using this topic forum. See you at the fall forum. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Have fun with your sister!!

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Good morning, I didn't realize how long it has been since I have posted. I have been back home for a few days after being gone for almost 3 weeks. Gained weight but glad to say I am back in control and losing what I gained. I caught up on all the posts and noted the items I need to be praying for.

My sister is going to be with me the next 5 weeks so I probably will need to cut back some on my computer time. She is hoping to lose weight while she is here. With her here we are going to be a good support for each other.

Have a great day.
Donna

Dorothy,
I just spoke to my vascular surgeon who specializes in DVTs, he CLEARED me to FLY. Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord. The other doctor who advised me not to is hematology (blood dr). The vascular surgeon said that these clots that showed up could have always been there BUT they are just flaring up b/c I have been overdoing it with my wogging along with then doing leg exercises (squats, etc.) that I am stressing my legs and making my blood pump harder in the blood vessels that already have trouble blood flowing through them. He wants me to come see him after vacation with all my records films so he can take a look at them.

Barb,
Hope all is well with your new grandbaby and that your DIL is recovering nicely. Don't forget to take care of yourself as well.

Ya'll have a Blessed Day..
Maria

Thanks and I agree with the doctor about not flying. Maybe go to something that you can take a car or train. That would be safer for you

Dorothy I am so sorry to hear that. I will be praying for both of you.

Sorry I been gone a few days, I have been having medical issues. They just found two more new clots in my left leg and here we are supposed to be getting on plane on Saturday for San Diego for vacation and dr does not advise it! She not keeping me from it but does not think good idea since they are new developed and new medication has not had time to work. And I so need this vacation badly! Too many risks involved with flying and these new clots. emoticon

He has the cancer back and is going through treatment again, it is also bringing his blood count down so they will be doing it once a week for the one drug and 7 days for the other, for about 4 weeks and one week off.

Praise the Lord, that is fantastic news. So happy they will be home soon and you can enjoy those precious moments with them.

Barb,
I like that way of thinking BOOMERANG time.

Dorothy,
How did your husband's tests go? Any word yet on results?

I am still busy as ever at work. I try to get in these Sparks here and there but duty calls, what can you do right. I am leaving today at 1 p.m. for dr appt then home after that and hubby and i to go wogging. Haven't done it in a couple of days and I missing it so much. MIL left this morning. We had a good time last night at dinner and the movie Odd Life of Timothy Green.

Will chat with you guys later.
Have a great and blessed day.
Hugs

Just a short note to say thanks for all the prayers. After lots of blood transfusions, platelet transfusion and everything else she is doing well and will be coming home in the morning. Nothing short of a miracle. Can't wait to have her and the new baby out of the hospital. I haven't really got to enjoy the new baby much.

Maria- thanks for praying for Donna's daughter.
I am getting my youngest daughter ready for college and then my dh and I will be coming home to and "empty nest" this will be a bit emotional for us!! It will only be for 10 weeks at a time for now and then she will be back for Holiday and Summer breaks so having gone through this before I really do not think empty nest happens until she gets her 1st job and own home. I kind of look at this as a boomerang time...keep sending her out and she'll keep coming back. Makes it easier on my emotions!!! Smiles Barb

Barb,
Thanks for the update on Dorothy's daughter, prayers prayers prayers are being said for them right now.

Omgosh the visit with MIL has been is fun but it has been very late night since she has come in to town. Especially having to entertain after hard days at work, then latenights, hardly any sleep, I am so ready for sleep and relaxation.

Yes, grandkids are alot of fun but a handful, the best part I can give them back. emoticon

How is your home organization going for the fall? Do you have more children or will you be an empty nester now?

Well I better get back to work. :(
Have a great and blessed day.
Hugs
Maria

Donna's daughter had her baby yesterday and is having some complications after delivery. She would appreciate prayer for healthy recovery for her daughter as she is currently in intensive care.
I am off to pick up my dog from the groomer and then working on doing some home organization for fall and getting my dd ready to go to college...her 1st year away from home living in a dorm...Have a great day. Smiles Barb

Barb and Dorothy,
Thanks for the Welcome to the team.

Donna,
I am with Barb and Dorothy, stress will do it to you big time. Try yoga or mediation if you can to relax. I bet DD is ready to have her baby. Good Luck with that.

I babysat the grandkids this weekend, WOW I haven't had to take care of a baby for 19 years (that is my youngest son's age). And these ages were 8, 5 little girls and 8 months old boy. But it was so great, I call him my little ball turkey I just want to eat him up.

How are you ladies doing? Are you staying on track? I will do my best this week as MIL is visiting she came in last night and hard when you have visitors to stick to your routine. I told hubby I have to stay on my schedule so hope they both understand, they said yes they would even join me in WOGGING! emoticon

Ya'll have a great day.

Good evening. I sure thought I would be gone to my DD by now and holding my new grand daughter. My DD had been having contractions for a few days but now realizes they were Braxton Hicks. She sure hope something happens tomorrow. She is ready to have this baby.

My eating has been so off the past several days. I haven't been tracking and therefore am gaining weight. I have a knee brace and I went to put it on today to go to the store and noticed it was tight. So..... best get back with the tracking. I don't usually track when I am at my DD but I have got to do it this time. I am going to reward myself with a pedicure if I do. My DD wants to work on losing weight after the baby is here so maybe with her working we will both make good progress.

Hopefully the next time you hear from me I will say, Baby has arrived.

Have a great day
Donna

Just checking in quickly to see if I have missed anything. I will be probably headed out of town in the next day or so as my dd is due to have a baby the 20th. She went to the Dr. this AM and her Dr. said any hour or day. I will be gone about 16 days.

Good night

Congrats on losing the 10 lbs. When I went GF I gained 15. I have lost about 1/2 that. and struggle to keep going on down. No Sub I went to your page and love the reason you selected your name.

It is trying to rain here. We so need the rain. I was going to go out and mow but it won't be this AM. I will take the rain over mowing any day.

Have a great day.

Newbie stepping up to chat (although it looks really quiet around here).

I'm self-diagnosed gluten sensitive/allergic (not sure which) -all I know is that I feel a heck of a lot better when I don't eat glutenous products. My 25 yr old daughter is also gluten intolerant.

Since I've really started avoiding GF foods, I've lost nearly 10 pounds. I do still slip up - sometimes deliberately like when I am really craving a cheesesteak sandwich - and sometimes accidentally - like when I forget about caramel coloring (it doesn't always bother me, but more often than not I am affected).

Looking forward to learning from all of you

Just poking in to say Hi and hope everyone is doing well. I have a full week ahead and will be headed out of town for several days on Fri AM. My DD is being given a baby shower that I will be attending. Excited to see her and my almost 3 yr old GS.

Lots of new members but none coming to chat.

Have a great day.

This team is really quiet. I didn't realize it had been so long since I had posted. Not much has been going on. Recently I went and had another nerve block but as of yet I am not sure how much good it did. Last time I had really good result but now I don't think this one is doing much. I have a bunch going on the rest of this month and next month. I will be going out of town 3 times and the last time I will be gone about 18 days.

Just hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Just a quick hi. We got back from our Durango,Co vacation late yesterday. I am taking a 15 min break from cleaning up. Need to get back on my tracking of food. Ate way too much. I did find a place that served gf crepes and had a sweet one. We had planned on going back the next day to get a savory one with chicken, but they were closed.

Mostly just stopping by to say Hi

Good morning, I just haven't had time to be on Sparks lately. I had been taking care of my 2 1/2 yr old GS while his parents went on a short vacation. Yesterday I spent the day in the big city seeing an eye Dr. for my cataracts. Since I no longer an taking care of a baby I am trying to get caught up on things I would have done if she wasn't here, such as steam cleaning carpets.

Mostly just stopping in to say hi and hope everyone is doing great.

There is a product call garden tone that is organic and helps with the plants. Sometimes I can find it at Home Depot but other times it is at Walmart too. I used it on my flowers and they grew like crazy.

I have been busy rebuilding planter beds in my dad's garden. All last week was unusually cool for this area so I took advantage of it. It well be nice when I get the vegetable garden going again.

The Dr. told me this knee brace will be a lot lighter in weight and cooler to use. Also because it is custom made it should put support where I need it.

I am waiting for my grass to dry so that I can go out and mow. I should have mowed Sat. but the swimming pool was calling my name. I am expecting my DD and her family late afternoon and I would sure like to get that done before they come. I will be taking care of my 2 1/2 year old GS while they go on to the mountains for a few days of alone time.

Have a great day.
Donna

That is good. The knee braces can be heavy but some of them that are custom made will be lighter. I had one for my knee and it work out good until it got too bad.

Good afternoon, hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. When I saw my knee Dr., we decided to to another cortisone shot. It is helping to take the edge off. Also there is a new brace for arthritic knee that is custom made he would like me to try. I am the first patient of his to try it. He feels a custom made one will give me the support where needed and also it isn't as hot as the one I have been using. I will get in in about another 10 days. Just wish the cost of it wasn't so high. Not sure how much will be picked up by insurance if any.

I have been enjoying my time in the pool. This next week I will be having my 2 1/2 year old grandson for about 5 days while his parents get away for a short vacation. They wanted some alone time before the baby come in Aug.

Just mostly checking in and saying hi.

Hope everyone had a safe memorial weekend. Mine was very quiet. We BBQed about 12 meals. The T-bone steak that we had for supper was one of the best I have made in a long time. Tender and perfectly seasoned. We put hamburgers, chicken, turkey patties in the freezer for future use. We don't always get to BBQ when we want because of the wind.

I am headed to my knee Dr, which is out of town in about an hour. Hopefully he will agree to do knee injections again. I did them last summer, but didn't get the full benefit he had hoped for, but on the other side I know it helped.

Off to fold clothes, exciting.

Have a great day.

Barb, you aren't the only one who hasn't checked in here for a while. Today is my last day of the baby care. I am ready to get back to my normal. I have enjoyed caring for her, but now that it is summer I want to get outside and work in my flower bed in the AM and other things.

June is just around the corner. Seems the months just fly by. Not much really going on. Just mostly saying Hi.

Hope you have a great day.

Hi Barbara, They are keeping me busy. I can not believe that I have not had the time to check my email since Monday. And here I had determined that I would do it every day and keep up with Spark People. Sigh! I think I am busier now then when I was home with my family and I felt like I was constantly on the run then. Yesterday we went to Bakersfield (four hour round trip) because my dad had a doctors appointment. We also did the shopping at Costco, Trader Joe's and a health food store. I feel like I walked 10 miles yesterday.

When my doctor had me start walking, he had me do a little every day and build it up. Slowly I was able to get it up to 2 miles a day, Now, because I am in a gym, I walk for 1/2 hour (with Abbie my puppy) each day and do the rest of the exercises at the gym.

Mark...I have fibromyalgia too and I do the same thing with lighter weights more reps! When I mentioned weight bearing I meant that I need to walk more since my primary exercise is on a bike and that is not as good for my bone density. It is hard to keep a balance between taking care of my bones and not causing a flare with my fibro so am trying to find the best options.
So far I am just trying to add in walking 2 - 3 times a week with my dh and going hiking with my family on weekends when we can. Sounds like you're parents are keeping you busy!!!

Smiles from Barb!!

Barb, by weight barring exercises are you referring to strength exercises with weights or machines? My Physical Therapist took both my Fibro and Arthritis into consideration when coming up with my exercises. She said it is better for me to use lighter weights and just work up to more reps. And to make sure I go slowly at them.

I did ask the people at the gym for advise for modifying my exercises to their equipment. They actually took the time to show me. That was unexpected but a blessing.

Had a very busy weekend. Dad voluntared me into making the corsages to give to the ladies on Sunday at Church and his Music Recital. And also to make food for the Brunch after church. I also made a special dinner for Mom on Sunday.

Good afternoon. Been running errands all morning. I didn't expect the stores to be so busy. I stood in line almost 15 min. Taking a break before I start doing some vacuuming and dusting. I don' t like doing these jobs on Sat, but with the baby it is hard. It was so nice to sleep until 8:30 this AM.

Not doing anything special for mother's day. We had mother's day at my oldest dd when we were with her family last week. My youngest is at her MIL.

Have a great Mother's day, all you moms.

I need to look in to adding some variety to my exercise....I get comfortable doing the same old thing and don't want to change...my bones need some weight bearing exercise and I need to make sure I don't do something that will make my fibromyalgia flare so am going to do some research and make some adjustments!!

Just be slow and steady when you start in the new gym. See if someone can help you the first day. My last gym they always took people around their first day and instructed them on how to do the exercises. This new gym they do not do that so I will have to figure out how to do my strength exercise with the different equipment all on my own.

We have a new gym here that I am thinking about trying out as soon as I don't have the baby any more I need to figure out some more vigorous exercises I can do since walking has become an issue.

We have another cold front coming in. The only good thing is they will be good soup days. I thought I had made the last of the soup for the year last week, guess not.

Have a great day

Yesterday I got enrolled in the gym but by the time we got done with all the paper work I only got 10 minutes of a work out before my parents wanted to leave.

I also finally got my computer hooked to the internet. Verizon sent us a new router that has WiFi and I bout an adapter for my computer. Now I can go on the internet as I please.

Today the bug spray guy comes so I have to have Abbie out of the house for an hour and a half. We should get a really good walk in today.

Mark- glad you are getting some exercise and able to help your parents. My parents are getting older and still able to take care of each other and live on there own if we just help them with things they can't do occasionally. It takes a lot of love to move back home to care for them and I am sure it will be a blessing for both of you once you get it all figured out.
Off to make soup for dinner.

Barb, They told me it would be an hour wait. That hour got drawn out when the doctor was called away to do an emergency procedure.

I am feeling good today. All ready to go for my walk. But some days it takes a while for the old folks to get themselves up and moving so I am waiting on them. The need the exercise as much as I do. This afternoon I well be joining the gym here in this town. I well miss all the friends I had before I moved. Dad wants go go to the gym every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I well go by myself the other days once I help them get the morning chores done.

Dorothy will pray for your husband to get better and for you to be comfortable as you are away from home supporting him.
Mark- when I go to the doctors office and it looks crowded I check to see how long they think it will take to be seen and either read a book in my car or sit in a close by coffee place and have them call me on my cell phone when my appointment time is getting closer. Tell them why you need this and make sure you don't have to sit in uncomfortable chair for so long!
Busy today with college stuff with my dd....Hope everyone is having a healthy gluten free week!!

Got the stitches out of my forehead yesterday. I spent 3 hours in the clinic waiting for a five minute procedure. I am really stiff today form sitting in those uncomfortable chairs for so long. But I was still able to get out and do my walking this morning. And spent 30 minutes throwing a ball for Abbie to chase. Then I would have to go get it after she got done chasing it.

My computer time will be limited to early mornings (before they wake up). Until I can get my computer hooked to the internet. Dad likes to be on the computer in afternoons and evenings.

Good morning, Got back late yesterday from spending 3 days at my DD's home. Enjoyed seeing the grandkids, ages 3 1/2 and 1 1/2. It had been a while since we have seen them.

Mark, it is a wonder you have time to do any sparking with you now taking care of your parents.

Nancy, good so see your post.

Lots to catch up on, just mostly stopping by to see what I have missed.
Have a great day
Donna

It has been a while since I posted. So much for trying to be good and regular at posting. Had a lot of turmoil at home which resulted in me deciding to make the move to my parents house to help take care of them, My mom has dementia and at times it gets really bad. My dad is in poor health and has trouble taking care of mom's needs when he is to busy taking care of himself. I had planned on making the move in June or July. But it got moved up fast.

I do not have my own computer set up so right now I have to rely on my dad's dinosaur of a computer.

Hi

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

trying to get back on track. had 4 teeth pulled Monday and 4 more next week.

Have gained 3 pounds and will be anxious to see what my blood test results are since my fitness and nutrition have been nonexistent for many months. It is a lesson for those to stay connected with spark friends.

Just checking in to say Hi. Hope everyone is doing great.
I need to be good this month. April was not good in losing weight. I had worked really hard and lost 7 lbs in March and then gained back all but 3 in April.

Looking forward to the weekend. We are leaving Thursday to go to our DD's. We haven't seen our grandkids, ages 20 months and 3 1/2 since Christmas. We usually try and see them every 3 months but too much was going on.

Have a great day.
Donna

Just got a new library book on gluten free cooking by Robin Ryberg.
" Gluten Free in 5 minutes" professes to be able to make gluten free bread, hamburger bun, hot dog bun,desserts, rolls, breads and muffins in the microwave with only 2 minute cooking time!! I am intrigued!!! Will let you know if the food tastes as good as the pictures look in the cookbook. Pizza crust in 5 minutes?? That would be pretty amazing...will see!!!

Smiles from Barb!!

Welcome Treesa57 and you will find that there are more teams here for gluten free and also some recipes. They don't have a plan here for a gluten free way of eating and you will have to make yours. It seems that all so-called healthy eating want you to eat grains and some people have a hard time with them. So just make sure that you find out what all ones that mess with your body.

Hi
I am very new to all this gluten free stuff. 2 weeks actually. I am having an endoscope this afternoon to confirm the blood tests and fecal sample tests I had. I have had so many misdiagnoses with my poor guts I was simply happy to try a new diet. I figured it cant hurt. The crohn's disease meds weren't working, the IBS diet helped some, but I was just getting sicker and sicker and couldn't leave my house in fear of not being close enough to my bathroom. The gluten free diet has been a miracle worker. I said well now I have celiac disease. When I read about it, it made a lot more sense to me. the symptoms seemed to fit what I was having. So I am a real rookie here and am willing to have any help I can get. I have bought a couple cook books and some flour and stuff to go with it all gluten free and am ready to get started baking this way. I know spark teams are great sources of support so I am happy there is one here.

If you haven't got a smile on your face and laughter in your heart, then you are just a sour old fart!

I will have to cut down on some of the teams that don't do much or anything at all because I don't have time to mess with them since I now have to take care of my husband that cancer put him in a wheel chair. He has been in it for a year now and has gone through chemo and that makes his muscles weak and when he builds them up, chemo breaks them down.

I do not have enough time to exercise, spend time on computer, and take care of the house, and all the other things involved in. Would like to be more active on teams also.

God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

I did the same thing with some of the teams that I was on since they were not active.

Donna- I belong to more teams than I interact with on a daily basis...I keep contact with 2 main ones on message posts, occasional on others and only huddle and check in with certain people on the others.
I am off to exercise and do my responsibilities...have a great week! Smiles Barb
