Go to the new "A Place to Meet and Chat." This will help those with dial up.
It has a sticky on it.

STOP go to the top post topic....

Jane..Kathy started the new one at the top when this one got so long...it takes too long to view it, if you have dial up...so the top one is the one to use now.

Hello...

I'm starting to gather paperwork for taxes (ugh). They will be a bit complicated this year, so not so sure I can handle it. Still, it is nice to have income when so many do not.

It's still BRRRRRRR, BRRRRRRRRR, and double BRRRRRRRRR here. Praise the Lord the wind is down at the moment. Supposed to begin warming after another brutally cold night tonight. There is a bit of a hazy sun out.

I haven't started my van since Tuesday so will see if it will start today. Unsure if there will be church tomorrow. If there is church it will be our monthly pot luck and business meeting.

Nothing else planned for today except get outside, if only for a few minutes to get the mail and feed the birds.

Take care and remember....move.....move....move...

Seems a bit warmer today. The snow has been flurrying all day but it doesn't amount to much, just a light, fresh coating to cover up all the dirt on the last set. I did get the soup pot out today - am making a pot of ham and navy bean soup. Don't know how it will taste as I can't put any celery in for flavor as my DD is allergic to it. Well time for our chiropractor appointment. Have a wonderful rest of the day, everyone. Stay safe and warm, if possible.

Good morning everyone...actually, I guess it's afternoon here. Where did the morning go? Got that vegetable soup made and we've been enjoying it. The weather is so cold ... in the 20's...supposed to stay this way until Sunday. Brrrrrrr. Hubby has some beef stuff on to make some king of stroganoff to serve over rice. Smells good. He usually comes up with some good stuff when he gets into the kitchen.

Elizabeth...we did go to Ireland in November. It was pretty, but it was cold, windy and rainy. Not my favorite kind of weather. I like it warmer. Hubby likes colder weather. So, I have to compromise now and then. And we did have a lot of fun in Ireland. The people were wonderful and the countryside was beautiful. The Cliffs of Mouer were breath-taking.

Snow, snow and more snow......still coming down.....currently 3F (-16C) with a wind chill of -11F (-24C)...it's warmer in Michigan than it is here...so much for getting out of the bitter cold..At least I have heat and electricity and running water...so far my pipes haven't been frozen---2 of my daughters have frozen pipes..

As I sit here filling my face (with healthy stuff), I remember to be grateful for what I have...some aren't as fortunate as not everyone has a safe warm place to go..

I have done my exercises 5 days this week ( a new record for me). I am getting my back and legs in shape for when I return to work in mid March. That is when the store will reopen. I have been retired since 2001 when God sent me this "perfect" job. It is 3 to 4 days a week during daylight hours and no Sunday. I work from 10 AM till 5 PM at a pottery store. Actually I am running the store when it is open. It is closed for the winter. I am loving it. Should be quite busy this spring.

Take care and stay warm and safe.

Snow is supposed to start here about midnight. Still cold. I just can't seem to get warm today. I think I'll have to get out the soup pot tomorrow. Maybe that will warm me up.

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm. Good night.

Hi everyone,
Henri I got all the fixings for Veggie soup...No relief from this cold in sight in this part of the country...I stepped outside and about froze into a ice pop...LOL..I'm not walking outside today too cold..I'm going to use Wii fit+ and tonight maybe a walking tape...I don't have any news.
For everyone who is in this terrible cold weather if you have to shovel snow please do it in moderation it's not going anyplace...Shoveling snow is very hard on a person...you can have a heart attack if you are not in excellent shape so please stay warm and be safe

Elizabeth, I know what you mean about bundling up for a walk. Be careful about walking on ice. That is how I fell down one time and cut my head. I won't even peep outside now if there is any kind of snow/ice on ground

Homemade vewggie soup sure sounds nice and warm.

It is now starting to drizzle so we will see how the roads are for tomorrow. With temps dropping by tonight it could cause a lot of problems for tomorrow.

Good night to all and bye for now.

Good afternoon Ladies,
Oh my I actually went for a walk today...it took me longer to put on all my stuff to go out than it did to walk around the block..That's about as far as I wanted to walk unless I walked down the middle of the road it is icy...

Sharon, sounds like you are having cold weather also..Keep warm and be safe..

Elsie, your kind of in my part of the country this is terrible for around here isn't it..

Jeanne, take it one day at a time don't let the weight you gained over Christmas overwhelm you..It will come off if you stick with your plan.

Lupe, I bet this cold weather is something else for you..I know I lived in Texas for a few years and it never was as cold as it is now..

Henri, home made Veg soup sounds so good I may have to fix it tomorrow...have to go to the store for a few thing before I can make it... Have you taken any more trips? I always enjoy reading about your trips..they sound like so much fun..Keep warm..

Hugs to you all Elizabeth

Good Morning/Afternoon,

We are still in the freezer here in southwest Missouri. Today is supposed to be our warmest day for the next week. It is going all the way to 30. Sleet, wind, snow predicted for tonight and tomorrow with temps possible below zero. Wind chills down to -20. BRRRR, BRRRRRR, double BRRRRRR

Taking grandson out for lunch in about an hour. Each week I take either him or his sister out to eat. They get to chose where to go (sometimes with a little suggestion). Today he wanted to go to a drive through..I suggested we wait until their dining room opens in a few weeks as it would get really cold sitting in the van eating so we are going to a chinese buffet instead. A good place to go as they have lots of veggies on their bars.

Will have weigh in at TOPS tomorrow.....UUUUUUGH!!!!!

Went for routine check up Monday..dr said my weigh was up 8 pounds from July...now lets see---long slacks, sweatshirt, heavy socks, boots compared to shorts, t shirt, and sandals---wonder where the weight came from!!!!!!! LOL Anyway don't have to go back until July.

Boy, this morning has flown....did my morning exercises (day 3 or actually exercising)...still in my night gown but better hit the shower as I have to be ready to leave about 12:30

Blessings to all.

Elsie

Good morning - another cold day here - it is 37 and dropping. By tonight we are suppose to be in the teens with bitter cold in a.m.

Henri, good to hear from you.

Elizabeth, stay warm and I am like you as I have not been out much since the year started due to very cold weather.

Jane, hope all is well with you in Guam. Have a good day.

Stay warm and be safe.

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year...Since it's the first time I've posted this year. My oh my, where has the year gone, already. Things have been hopping this year so far. I've stayed on track pretty well, except for posting in my food journal. I can't seem to get past breakfast.

Weatherman has forecast bitterly cold weather tonight and for the next couple of days -- teens and single digit colds..so, I'm making a big pot of beef vegetable soup to keep us warm.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. Thanks for being here. I love the support.

Hello - it is still cold but went out walking around 11:00a.m. The sun is shining and there is no wind so the cold did not bother me. I bundled up real good and actually got in about 80 minutes. Boy, it sure felt good!!

We are waiting for the Artic Blast that is coming our way. It is suppose to get here Wednesday night and that when the temps will be in the teens.

Hope everyone's day is blessed and joyous.

Good Morning/Afternoon (depending on where you are)

The deep freeze continues here, too Supposed to last at least through the weekend. The snow is pretty if one is inside looking out. Frigid temps here..only going up to 15 today.

God is blessing us with some beautiful bright sun sparkling off the white snow. Looks like sparkly diamonds out there.

Going out in a bit to put out more bird seed and put some hot water in the bird bath.

Nothing special planned for today...done 15 minutes of stretching and moving exercises this morning. Not too bad for an old woman...hehehe Found out I am stiff in places I didn't know I had...hehehe lots to work on...have to build my legs and back up before returning to work in March. I got my Christmas decorations down and in totes and in the back room because it is too cccold to take them out to the shed. Now I can get my life glider out into the living room, maybe if I stumble over it enough I will remember to get on it.



God be with you and keep each one safe.

Elsie

Good morning from sunny Az. haven't gone for my walk yet, am busy washing bedding. dd came down with the flu on New Years eve. and has been in the bedroom most of the time. Dh wasn't feeling very good for a couple of days. so I just slept here in the office. I sure don't want it and have another day bed in here. good thing we have 4 bdrooms. only one is made into my treatment room so can't use that unles I think I can sleep on a massage table. I think I might roll off. ha

I have had a hard time getting going this year so far. I did finally get my 10,000 steps yesterday. the first in 2 wks. I think I was averaging around 2,000 during the holidays.. not good. I got to the gym and did treadmill, home and saw a client then back to zumba last night. my hips are saying 'whoa, wait a minute'..Was headed for the gym this morn. but so far have talked myself out of it. Do have a walk planned this afternoon with a friend so will stick to that. then Zumba tonight.

CM-I will not complain about our cold weather after reading about the kind of weather you all are having. Do be careful if you have to go outside. The cold can sure play tricks on us sometimes.

Lupe, I would gladly trade you temperatures. It is
-6 here in Minnesota and I just can't seem to get warm even in the house. About -26 wind chill. Definitely too cold to be out, although I did go to Curves this morning for my workout.

Hello - it is still cold here - high today is suppose to be 32. With this crazy weather, I have not been able to walk as much as I am used to. This winter the cold has really bothered me more than previous year. I am going to start doing my Richard Simmons exercises. That is also good exercise for me.

Going to take it easy as I woke up feeling tired.

Everyone have a good day and be safe.

We woke up to that nasty white stuff again!!! Church was cancelled due to the snow.

It has been a weird day for me...after church was cancelled I was going to lay back down for an hour---3 hours later I woke up..was up for 3 or 4 hours then went back to sleep for another hour....hopefully I was just tired and not coming down with something.

I did spend approximately 30 minutes outside shovelling the 2 decks and the steps. The snow is that real light puffy easy to shovel kind. Of course after I got the decks cleared it started in snowing again..looks more like Michigan than Missouri!!...hehehe

Take care all....God bless.....Elsie

Hello... We took the kids to the airport very early this morning. It was hard to see them go. We fell in love with our new ggd, she is so beautiful. We already had fallen for the 14 month old ggd, she is a handful. Our step ggs 6 yrs. old, was so cute too. We are hoping they will come to live here in Mo. in March while our gs is in Afghanistan again. She certainly can use the help with those babies.
I am going to get back on track with food & exercise since things will start to settle down. Although we might be buying a 73 yr.old house that will need some sprucing up. Lots of room.
I wish all of us the best in going for our goals this year. !!!!! Mary Ann

I am so grateful that my husband still loves me after all my nonsense thru the past 50 years.

Thank you , John

Hello team,

It is hard to climb back on the horse once you fall off, but I have done that, and so far so good. The easiest thing would have been not to fall off in the first place, but at least I'm back in the saddle (for good!)

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I have been reading some but not taking much time to reply. One team I co-lead lost all it's other leaders so I send out a team email to ask for volunteers. I should have checked the number of members first (over 140,000)! I was snowed under by all the responses. Anyway that team now has 3 new co-leaders and I hope the emails stop coming in so fast.

Hope every one has been well.

Hello to all and a very Happy New Year. I am hoping that this year will be better than last year. It was our first whole year without our Emi and it is hard to get used to. I am really going to try to lose weight this year. Last year I just played around. Best wishes to all and God Bless, Janice

I too haven't been on this site for awhile although I have been playing the word game. Didn't do as well with my weight as well as I would have liked in 2009. Only lost 5 pounds in the whole year. Hope to do better this year.

Happy New Year to all.

Good Morning/Afternoon,

Been months and months since I've posted. Things have been a zoo around here and I have spent most of the last 3 months on the road going nowhere but going everywhere. 2 daughters have had vehicle break downs and both of mine broke down a week apart. I was volunteering on Fridays at the senior center...I say was because I got a job so had to work Thursday through Saturday. Then we got iced in by a severe storm. Besides all the comings and goings for the holidays....at least everyone is healthy and happy (well most of the time---when teenage brothers and sisters aren't fighting with each other).

Sad to say, I have gained about 8 pounds over the last 4 to 6 months due to giving in to run away appetite and laziness. At least this week at TOPS weigh in I was down 3/4 pound instead of up 3/4 pound...guess that is good considering all the holiday stuff.

Not sure how often I will get to post but am getting into the habit of recording my food each day.

Things should calm down for a while as I don't have to work again until either March 15 or April first. I am running a pottery store for a friend. I sure did enjoy the few days I was able to work. They bought the business a few months ago so haven't got into the actual sale cycle yet.

Got woke up this morning by leg cramps..spent 10 minutes walking the cramp out...am still in my nightie so probably should consider getting dressed for the rest of the day...hehehe

just wanted to say...HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Elsie

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

I plan to lose more in 2014.

Good morning and Happy 2010.. the second day of a brand new year.. our youngest dd moved back in with us temporarily until she can save up enough for her own place. she and bf have split and it makes it hard to make it on one income anymore it seems. We used to do it but things were cheaper and we didn't feel we needed as much. It will be fine, I just don't see how she can sleep so much but know some of that is depression also.. She goes back to work Monday so will see how things change then.

I haven't been for my walks in a while. Need to get back to them too. I did make it to the gym once or twice. That will also start on Monday.

Weather is great so no excuses ..

Mary Ann, will certainly keep your GS in our prayers. We always include our military in our daily prayers, as I have a brother who is a Vietnam Veteran and I know what it is like when a loved one is away and you don't hear/see them for a while. Our military force is one of the things that I am most grateful for.
God bless his wife/children and all of your family.

Good night to all and may peace and calmness be in your lives in 2010.

Happy New Year all. We have a brand new challenge staring today. Our 2010 NEW YOU Snowman Search Challenge begins NOW. Post your weight as of today on the new challenge thread and then post your new weights every Friday during January.

The first day of the new year is ending with a family get together to visit with grandson & his family before leaving very early Sun morning to go back to Ca. He is scheduled to leave this week for Afghanistan for up to a year. Saying goodbye is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. It breaks my heart to know there are military there that have not seen their family for quite a while. Please say prayers for our military wherever they may be.

Vicki, good for you giving your husband healthier meals to help control his cholesterol, even if he doesn't like the idea. He will thank you in the end.

Happy New Year, if you go out be safe. ..The sun is shinning it is cold but nice to see the sun...so glad we didn't have the bad weather we were expecting...Hubby and I went grocery shopping last night after ten..The store was empty..I finally got to see the new Dilland's Market Place...You name it they have it's...it is so big it's hard to find the grocery's I wanted..by the time I got them home and put a way it was way past my bed time.
We are staying home to night we never go out on New Year's...To many people out on the roads that shouldn't be..
Love and Hugs Elizabeth :)

Hello - stopping by to wish all of you a very happy, blessed and safe New Year. If you are out tonight, please be safe and use caution.

We went out to buy all our stuff for our meal tonight. We decided on Ribeye steaks and King Crab Legs, baked potatoes, and ceasar salad, along with champagne.

Take care and God bless you all.

Have to make some menu changes for DH. Since his accident I was more concerned with him getting the protein he needed to restore his lost muscles that I let his cholestrol ease up again. Since he is just now using the walker Walking it down isn't happening so it will make him frown but he is going to be getting healthier choices again. Better for the both of us of course. Happy New Year to everyone with all of us getting healthier and plan is in my case smaller as well. emoticon

Good morning all. Trying to get into thehabit of logging on to SP and starting my food journal. It is hard to get back into the habit. I do good entering my "coffee"...than I blank for the rest of the day. I'm working on it though. I know that creating new habits will take a while, but I have a good group to urge me on.
Everyone have a great day, and thanks to everyone for the warm welcome back.

Good afternoon - we got the snow yesterday but it was not as much as had been predicted. Thank goodness!! DH said the roads were not bad when he went to work early this morning.

Staying in today as it is still yucky outside. This week I have been so cold - can't seem to get warm enough. I think it is old age.SMILE!!!

Hope everyone's day is going well and that everyone is staying warm and safe.

DD and Gaby are out shopping for Jeremiah's birthday party this Saturday. He will actually be 3 on Sunday, but due to everyone working they decided to make it on Saturday afternoon. Boy time sure does fly!!!

Torysue, I think I will also make me a hot cup of green tea.

Everyone have a great afternoon and enjoy yourself.

You are right Nola it is going to be a great day. I think I will kick start mine with a small pot of Yerba Mate Latte. Wonderful tea. Add a dash of flavored creamer and even better (worth the extra calories on a blah morning for sure). It is gloomy and chilly here in MS. Makes me long for Arizona springtime even more. emoticon emoticon My two favorites.

I'm afraid to look outside I know it sure is getting dark in the house. This is not a good sign...I'm sure it is going to start snowing very soon, or sleeting..I'm going to babyset for my neighbor tomorrow..She takes care of her granddaughters which are around a year and a half they are identical twins only way you can tell them apart is one is a little bigger than the other one..Their grandpa is really good with them but doesn't change dippers. ..LOL..That's where I come in..she was so good to stay with my ML when I needed to go to the store ect..it's the least I can do for her...I have to admit it's been awhile since I chased little ones around to keep them out of stuff..It's good for me..

Thank you for the nice compliments about my long hair...I almost got it cut right before Christmas..I was having a bad hair day when I got to the shop I had three ladies waiting for me to tell me not to cut it..I came home with all of my hair except I trimmed my bangs..I have one Christmas picture of us this year..the rest turned out horrible so I will add it to my gallery..My grandson's have really grown.
Have a nice evening..Hugs Liz
