Congrats Fluff, I don't enter much so won't win...lol

Beautiful day again here, 3rd on a row, BUT thick white frost so cold, but it is dry with sun, so we are happy with that,maybe you could share your temps with us,just so we could get into the 60's?

Dore, prayers for you and the family, as you say goodbye to your FIL emoticon

Vicky, you have worked hard on getting those 5lbs off, and they are gone..good for you.

Fluff, hope you have got over the shock of the fire and are doing fine.

Mona emoticon emoticon

bbl we are off to dad's again, mum wasn't well yesterday, had another mini stroke and then slept and woke and didn't remember anything, not even being sick. Dr is coming to see her again today and taking blood to see if she needs to change her meds,she is on half aspirin at the moment (besides all her diabetes, cholesterol and glaucoma meds)

Dore - I'm praying for you and your family.

I'm trying real hard to make up for my bad week. Actually it wasn't quite a week. More like from Thur - Sun. My eating has been really good and I've walked and gone to water aerobics 2 days in a row. The walking is real tough for me since I've been so sedentary for quite a while, but I did walk 3/4 of a mile yesterday. Today I am taking the day off from walking to give my knees and legs a rest, but plan to walk again tomorrow. The five pounds is already history!

Tomorrow we are having a half day for students and a half day of poverty simulation training. The school I work at has a really high number of students from familiest living in poverty. I guess this training is supposed to give us a better idea of what their lives are like. Today we all had to get on a bus and tour the neighborhoods. I've been through them many times, but it's been a while.

Hope everyone is doing well!



Count your blessings!
Vicky

Hi all,

Stopping by to let you all know that I may be away from sparks for about a week. I don't think that there is any internet access where we are going so probably won't be able to check in.

Thank you all for your thought and prayers.

We leave in the morning. We are driving. Even with gas prices where they are it is still cheaper than buying tickets for adults and 2 kids.

Should be home late next Monday night.

Have a great week ladies.

Believe you can and your halfway there.

Fluff, a fire oh that is scary, hope no-one was hurt?

Dore,sorry to hear about the loss of your FIL,love to all and thinking of you emoticon

We had a great time, thanks to all who asked.
The show was "Summer Holiday" like the film with Cliff Richard in the 60's,but don't think Cliff ever got famous in USA,he is a HUGE star here and still performing and always sells out. Lots of singing and dancing and toe tapping,they were a lot better in the bigger theatre (usual small one was booked) and they looked as if they really enjoyed being there too.
Got home about 11.15 so dirty stop out...lol

Hi to all who are busy this weekend, did you remember to change your clocks if needed? If not, it is an hour later than you think emoticon

I think that helped, Fluf. Thanks!! That is scary that there is a fire!! I just hate to see those. Take care.

Had a really good day with eating.

Hope you had fun Sue.

Any news from the computer at home, Vicky?? Hope it gets fixed soon. Miss you.

Hugs and prayers, Dore for you and Mike as you travel to his family.

Don't forget to turn the clocks ahead. I already did mine. Hugs to all!!

LOL, then don't change it sweetie. I just read one of your posts where you said you had to eat as your sugars were low and you weren't hungry, so just thought if you had a look how to spread it out more through the day so that you were level emoticon

I haven't had any chocolate for a week now, woo hoo me!! That said, doesn't mean I don't want it!! BUT we haven't got any and will not be buying any. I am giving the kids and gd money to buy their own eggs so I am not even tempted when getting theirs.

Tonight I am going to a musical show with ds ddil and her mum while my poor dh is working all night.

My plan this week is to try at least 2 new recipes and today I am having herb crusted salmon

got in 45 min of cardio !! did the boot camp video this morning then stopped by the center while running errands and got in the rest..

Sue- will the tracker change anything I have set?? like numbers- favorites... scary !! and congrads on the pound gone !!

Mona- you can clear your history,cookies and temp files -- and it makes mine run better - especially when its slow or hangs up... go to your start page when you get on the internet. click tools- internet options- look at browsing history and click delete.. check top 3 history, cookies and temp files.. click ok.. and ok in next box.. wait a while and it will start running thru by the top screen...
I also have CCleaner- it is a free cleaner that clears out crap- my brother calls it crap cleaner..LOL ......I run that before I turn off PC.. hope it helps

Hi all,

This will be short. Mike's dad has taken a very bad turn for the worse. He is not expected to make it through the day. Mike is in Oregon and can not get back to be with the family. We may be leaving on Monday to head towards Al. Will let everyone know.

Thanks all.

Morning all

Fluff, did you know that on the food tracker on Spark, you can choose diabetic plan or not diabetic plan. You can still put your own foods in when you have chosen, but it adds up all the things you still need to have and what you are having too much of.

Mona, we all have to learn to start listening to our bodies,when they squeak that we have had enough.
glad to hear you aren't as achy as before

Vicky, how are you? Hope you get some rest at the weekend.

Hi to all our girls who are lurking...lol..we miss you,please say hi and let us know you are okay

see you later, some housework to catch up on today as the last few days have been hectic

hugs
sue

BTW: lost 1lb, slow and steady...lol..still getting off the 5 I gained

Hi everyone~~

I had an awful time staying on Spark earlier today. It was taking forever to get to where I wanted to be. Not sure what you meant by running a cleaner Fluff. You are really doing great, girl. You really sound good and I am so glad!!

Now my problem will be getting myself to the pool. I go back to the doctor on Tuesday and hopefully he will allow me to start the water aroebics again. I am still having pains in my arm and chest but NOTHING like they were. I guess I really was banged up more than I thought. Plus I kept pushing it!!

Tomorrow is weigh day for me. Hope I am down some more. Really watching my eating since the exercise is pretty much~~NOT!!!

Have a great Friday everyone!! Hugs to all.

Hi all. hey the pool and walking are great !!
I went to the center did 40 min of cardio and some strength.. they had a skimpy lunch - which is unusual.. anyway my sugars dropped when I got home to 69 so I had to eat.. was upset I am trying to loose weight.. but I was on plan.. top end of calories but still good and tons of exercise.. I did the workout video for the diabetic challenge..
watched eat, pray , love... I liked it .. but the hipe made me expect more.... netflix started again with out warning... I had it on hold.. so will let it go for the month and turn it back on hold...
oh and thanks for explanning the Taco salad.. I did not know where to start... unfortunatly they have now added rice on the bottom too... more calories and carbs.. next year I need to remember to ask for it without the rice..LOL
Have a fabulous night all

Hi everyone~~

It has been a rainy day here in SC. Thank goodness we didn't get the horrible stuff that came across LA, AL, and GA. Praying all is well in FIL's area Dore.

I will be so glad to get back to exercising regularly. I see my doctor on Tuesday and should get the all clear. My arm and chest still hurt but not anyway like it did the other night. I am going to quit trying to be a weight lifter and stick with the pool and walking. emoticon

Wishing you all a great day. Sounds like a nice "do" Sue!! Hope all is well with your eyes.

It was nice of Sue to let me know we turn ahead our clocks this Saturday!! I must live under a rock!!

Hugs to all!!

Sue, I thought Taco Bell was EVERYWHERE! Thanks for reassuring me. In the movie "Demolition Man," all restaurants have become Taco Bell--and because of the movie's eerie prophetic quality, I've been living in dread ever since.

Morning all, sunny but very cold again, but I will take the sunshine

Dore, thanks for the info on Taco Bell, one to avoid if they open up over here...lol

I am just walking but weight is coming down, woo hoo,so keeping on with it.

Off to the hairdressers again, I went 2 weeks ago and found a girl to feather and layer with a razor, so just got her to take a bit off in case she made a mess, but it was great so going to get it a lot shorter today.

Tomorrow is an eye test, I got a voucher for a free eye exam so that is saving 20.

We had our pancakes last night as it was Pancake Day here (Shrove Tuesday) but I have to say I didn't enjoy them as much as normal, so can someone tell me why I ate them all???
Oh well, it was tracked and in allowance I suppose...lol

see you later when I get back
hugs

Hi all ,

Sue - Taco Bell is a chain Mexican restaurant here in the states. The salad is made by using a tortilla , deep fat frying it into a bowl shape. It contains meat seasoned with taco flavoring, beans, lettuce, sour cream, cheese, and choice of dressing. So yes lots and lots of calories. But like Fluff said - so good. So if she sticks to one a year she should be okay.

The wind blew all night and then I awoke to bright sunshine. Now though a storm is moving in. Will probably be only rain which will melt what the sunshine didn't. This is our normal spring time weather. LOL

A bit frustrated today as I gained again. But have not gotten too discouraged as I am dealing with some health issues that probably played a part in it. Will stick to plan and see if I make any headway next week.

Hope you all have a great day tomorrow.

Believe you can and your halfway there.

Pam, your goals are NOT pathetic,we all need to have a serious mind shift about how we see things. You have completed Day one emoticon ,now here's to Day two

Dore, it has got colder here overnight, and we have thick white frost. Luckily the sun is shining so no snow.
How lovely that you are following in your Mom's footsteps

Fluff, maintain is good and keep up the good work.
I have no idea what a Taco Bell is or why the salad is so high in cals,does it have lots of meat, cheese and dressing???? I need a translation for the Brit..lol

Good afternoon all,

Welcome back Pam: just like the others, been there, done that, and then picked myself up by my own boot straps and had a talking to. Going at slowly too. Don't be so negative about your restart. Every thing you do to benefit yourself is a positive action and should be celebrated. Big or small.

No Sue - I am not babysitting the neighborhood right now. I had to laugh because growing up the kids in the neighborhood were always at Ms Pat's house (my mom's). So sorta felt like I was following in some pretty good footsteps.

Not at my best today. Not sure if its because it is snowing AGAIN!!!!!! or just because. So just doing the easy things today and resting up some more.

Hang in there everyone. Have a great day tomorrow.

Believe you can and your halfway there.

Morning all
Welcome back Pam, so good to see you, and as Mona says, been there done that and we know just how you feel.
You have put a great plan in place and just take it one day at a time,one meal at a time, and one water at a time and one 5 mins of exercise at a time. It will add up sooner than you think emoticon emoticon

Mona, are you feeling better?

Dore, are you still babysitting the neighbourhood...lol?

Fluff, hope you are still doing good, I know you are having fun now and enjoying this time emoticon

see you all later,may go back to bed, it is only 5 a.m. here

I haven't been around the team for a while. I'm just sticking my nose in to report that I'm groping around in the weeds, trying to FIND my track. *sigh* Nothing like gaining back the 35 lbs I lost with SparkPeople PLUS gaining 30 new, never-before-seen pounds. So discouraged... I've been trying to get focused enough to start again. My goals for this week: (1) track what I eat for 7 days (2) 5 minutes of exercise per day for 7 days (3) drink 8 glasses of water per day for 7 days.

To everyone who has gotten back on track and is relosing weight--you're an inspiration to me, especially right now:

To everyone who keeps trudging down the track--you're incredible:

To all of us who never give up:

Morning all,

Seems that I am the neighborhood Nanna - LOL I had a phone call from one of my girls friends that live in the area. She had gone into labor and couldn't get ahold of her brother who was supposed to watch her other two children for her during this time. She wondered if she needed me would I be available. I told her yes. Didn't hear from her but saw on FB this morning that last night she had a little girl.

Not much after that phone call a young lady from the church called and asked if I could watch her little one today. So I babysitting today. She is such a sweetie and is not trouble at all. So glad she is now old enough to enjoy Dora.

Had a good long talk with myself yesterday and did 5 minutes of walking in place. Going to do it again today. It really did feel good to get up and moving.

Well it is sunny here but cold.

Sue - sorry to hear about Ralph. Hope that this doesn't get in the way of you holiday.

Vicki - I so know the feeling of the night eating. I tried Mona's trick of not eating past a certain time. It didn't work . I have tried using a trick I saw on the Biggest Loser. I have sugar free gum handy and when the urge hits I pop some in my mouth. It has been a big help.

Sue - crisp, chips, crackers, - doesn't matter they are all my down fall. I seem to love the crunch and the salt.

Well ladies so do hope you have a great day today.

Believe you can and your halfway there.

Had another good day. I am tired tonight too, Fluff. Looks like it is going to be really cold tomorrow morning so I may wait until Monday for the pool. Lots of flu going around Columbia too. So don't want to get that.

Everyone have a great weigh in tomorrow and also a great day. Hugs!!

Morning all

Dore, of course any Welsh blood counts and even people who love Welsh people and things (what's not to love..lol)
We are all working on getting our respective 5lbs off and mine is slowly shifting..lol

Yes, Ralph has to have an op so we are waiting for a letter,will let you know when we know.

Mona, I still say you are too young to be a great gran, but I am so excited for you,but you must all have been snatched from the cradle..lol
Hope the new baby is born on Dad's bd 1st Oct wouldn't that be great? When the time is right will they be wanting to know what it is or do they want a surprise?

Fluff, hope you get some rest soon and feel better.

Marcie, hi, I keep forgetting that when you all say chips, you mean crisps..lol...our chips are what you call french fries, we need a translation dictionary,hahaha
