The WOW walk went alright .. 4.3 miles in 62.33 . it isnt what others do that matters it is what you do for yourself that matters. As long as I am improving on my personal best then i am fine with that and I am so all is well .

Hope everyone is doing good !!!

The most important thing is to challenge yourself so that you keep moving in the right direction. You dont have to move mountains just walk over the bumps in the road and all will be alright.

Good evening team ... I got in strength and pool today . it is still raining in South Mississippi so not much going on outside ...

Barb now that things have slowed back a bit for you maybe it will be easier to get back to the gym ...

Hope all is well with everyone emoticon

This week there are two things that happened that well I had to take a little bit to wrap my head around and just take them in. I started my journey off at 366.6 pounds. This week I hit 266.4 that is 100.2 pounds lost in almost two years. Now I have a long way to go actually another 100 pounds but for right now i am just over joyed to finally say I have lost the first 100. The second thing On Wed. I was given the icon on my page as a Spark People Motivator. I dont consider myself to be anything special I am just me and to know that so many people think that my story helps or that I encourage them in some way was a tad overwhelming. I consider Spark People real people not just a website. I read the stories and see the fears and joys of the people and it is so moving to me . But I never set out to motivate or inspire anyone I set out to loose my weight in the best way I could so that once it is gone It is gone and I dont have to go through all this again if that makes sense. I changed my life I didnt diet. At any rate for whatever part anyone played in giving the honor of being a Spark people motivator Thank you. emoticon

My back is doing much better. Today I will try the weights again but not water and see how that goes. Also hopefully back out to cut the grass some more if it doesnt rain any more. My son and DIL with my grand daughter are here for the weekend.

Happy Sunday everyone ...Thankfully the rain seems to be holding off at our home but not sure for how long. I have now reached my lowest weight in the last 20 years at 272.8 and I am inching my way to the 260. I really want that 266 by 6/25 so I have to push it every day. This is exhausting but it will be worth it .. hope everyone has a great dry day emoticon

Good morning Team .. I have had a great weekend with my youngest grand child Lilly Anna .. she is adorable ... I am tired but I will be going to the gym today since i missed yesterday. I am excited I finally got my new bathing suit in ... it is an actual workout suit called a Unitard lol .. and it is red because I refuse to buy anything black for working out in any more. I have no reason to hide behind that black any longer . I work hard and have come a long way in what seems like eternity but it has only been about 19 months ...

Have a great day and stay safe emoticon

Good morning everyone ... I had an awesome workout this morning and really feel like i am getting back to a good point. It is hard work trying to figure out why you plateau but hopefully i have figured it out and now can move on forward. The infection in my mouth is finally gone and that helps a lot .

Barb you are doing a great job and i am sorry i have been MIA as i dealt with this issue in my mouth but it is hard to stay positive when you are hurting .

I hope everyone is having a great week emoticon

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I am back to tracking and being consistent with my exercise. I keep thinking about joining a gym but haven't decided for sure whether I am going to make the commitment to that or not! I ride my stationary bike or walking the dog on our road. Things are getting to the point that it will be crazy busy with the garden, fruit trees and taking care of baby chicks and juvenile chickens! I think those things will give me lots of exercise!! LOL

Together we can all do this!!

I had a fantastic workout this morning at the gym . I really needed it to for the mental part of me I was able to clear my mind out to enjoy the workout. I stopped on my way home and bought me a leather bound journal I need to get back to my personal thoughts where i dont think i will upset anyone and in a hand written journal it is just mine I can cry and cuss and pout and no one will know lol . Right now I am working on a cabbage casserole and some butternut mashed potatoes for dinner tonight .... both should be soft enough for me to eat tomorrow after the extraction .

I hope everyone else is having a good day also emoticon

I think part of my absence was just that. I am working hard to get myself back at the place I need to be. That is eating right, exercising, coming and checking in here at spark and communicating with my spark friends! It helps with my accountability!

Yay Amanda that sounds like such fun emoticon

I went to the gym today and did 45 minutes on the recumbent bike and 20 minutes of circuit training . I also upped all my resistance levels .. I am sore tonight but it will work its way out soon I hope. tomorrow is Pt and that will be two good work outs in one day but I also have wound care as well so it will be tough day . Hope everybody is doing alright .

Please pray for Tawanda and her family .. her husband was taken to the hospital with abdominal pains this afternoon

I went to the park today with my 8 year old while waiting on my 14 year old to get out of band practice. I went just to keep my youngest busy and pass some time but I wound up ACTUALLY playing at the park! I went on the swings, I spun my daughter on the merry-go-round, climbed the jungle jim, and SLID DOWN THE SLIDE! It was completely out of character for me.... It was AMAZING!

Just thought I would share!

Today I have a doctor appointment so we will see how that goes .. at this point I am not really sure what I should pray for so I guess i will give in and pray that his will be done period . i refuse to get upset or cry any more about my foot it is there i know it and it knows it but if something happens and it is not then that just means that something bad happened it will not be the end of the world to me any longer ....

I hope everyone has a wonderful week .... emoticon

Good Morning Everyone! I have been away from Spark for a while and just jumped back into it this past week. I do not post often (I guess I am just shy) but I do read the post and stories and many of you are a HUGE inspiration to me.

I hope y'all have a great week and meet all of your goals. I pray that all of our choices are easy and all of our exercise is done. Good luck to everyone!!!

I'm going to head off to school now, lots of test this week so I will be praying about those as well! lol

Hello...Hello! Finally I made it back to SP! February has been very busy and included a trip to Nashville and a side trip to Kentucky before we came home. We were in Nashville for an anniversary trip but we went up to KY to pick up some new baby chicks. For the time being we are keeping them in our guest room! LOL

How is everyone?

Evening .....

Tink, yes, and I'm so proud of myself....Lydia (my Siberian Husky) and I have walked 25 minutes together the passed couple of days. I can't believe I jumped from 10 minutes to 25! Poor Lydia LOL she was so worn out today. I know she's going to be happy for the rain the next little while so she doesn't have to walk LOL I told my mom I was walking to Savannah, GA and she looked at me like I was crazy LOL Even after explaining it to her, I don't think she quite grasped the idea of it.....

Hi Melanie! Nice to meet you :) Be sure and check out the new challenge that Tink posted....I think it's going to be fun :D

Tomorrow (Thursday) is a busy day for me. I have dialysis first thing, then work, then to Picayune to work with a group of Post Abortive women. It's an incredible healing process that these ladies go through....they come out a completely different person for it. It's a real blessing to be a part of this program. And of course.....there's the rain. I hate driving in the rain so I'll be doing lots of praying while driving LOL Probably on my lunch break I'll walk at the park if it isn't raining....if it is....ugh I don't know where I'll fit in some exercise time. Thankfully, these days are only once a week and it'll only be like this for the next 12 weeks.

Hi Ladies! I didn't realize how long it has been since I checked in!! The hubby has been gone for 2 weeks and I feel like I haven't stopped. Sebastian has been busy with tennis so that has kept me running. I have been trying to walk or do circuit training but I have missed a few days. Hoping to get back into a routine.

Hi everyone!

I've taken the challenge and am working towards my virtual road trip.....I am determined not to HAVE to fly back home! LOL

Hope everyone's Monday was beautiful.....we started getting the rain early afternoon. Traveled with hubby to take a class for his work and it stormed on us traveling home. (Hmmm now If I could count those miles toward my road trip....LOL j/k!!) I'm trying hard NOT to complain about all this rain as I know in the summer, we'll be praying for it again :( Humans, can't please us either way we go!

Be safe out there this week....it's supposed to be nasty all week from what I hear. Otherwise, I'll see you all on the flip side! Happy travels all!!!

Oooooh! Almost forgot! I'm officially in the market for a mini portable bike. If anyone has any suggestions about a particular model, please do let me know. I've researched the use of one while on dialysis and the benefits greatly increase for purification of the blood. That in itself excites me beyond measure but add to that that I can count that as exercise and hey, I just got a 2 for the price of 1! I love a great deal! Ok, now I'm outta here ;)

Happy Friday everyone ... I did the Hydro tank yesterday and it was pretty cool . The only issue I have with it that they dont want me to do anything other kind of cardio till my foot gets acclimented to it. Today for cardio though I got my exercise ball and while i was doing things on the cpu I sat on it and marched in place . It was a good cardio worked up a sweat any way but I want something that really burns lol . I will figure it out though.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. emoticon

Darlene ~ so glad you like your new physical therapist. Hopefully she can help you get back to where you want to be. And that is great about being able to use the gym while you are doing your therapy!!

The hubby goes back to work in the morning so things will slow down around here. Hopefully the eating will slack off too! :-) He is a wonderful cook and he LOVES to do it so we eat more while he is home.

I hope everybody had a great day!

Oh Happy Friday everyone ... I finally got my internet back on and now can get back to being active . Sorry but my internet on my phone was crap with the interactive things. This morning I had the first appointment with my new PT here in MS. Her name is Pam and she is very impressive. She specializes in the foot and is very much more knowledgeable of it than my last one was so I am confident that we will make strides quickly toward real progress. Also as my pt is part of a fitness center I get to use the gym free of charge while I am in PT .. This is awesome because They have a pool and I love to swim . The husband is finally back home for good also. That makes life so much better lol . This morning I also got a lead on a part time job which is something I really want to do. I dont have to work or make a lot of money but I do miss the every day interactions with people . Well welcome to my world lol.

lol that is some story Butterfly .. but I get it a lot of people do that leave the tree up all year and decorate for different holidays .. but for me i think it takes away from the special meaning of the Christmas tree. Glad you have gotten back in some walking and especially with the hubs that makes the walks great .

Janet for me it is a combination of time and distance .. but I am dedicated to an hour so it really is how far i can in an hour but if i am not happy with the distance I will keep walking till i get to where i want to be .

I hope everyone is having a great week and has a wonderful weekend !!!! emoticon

Good very late evening ladies!

First, I absolutely loved the fact that you had your tree up for 4 years LOL I'm like, yay me! Mine is still up LOL but only from this past Christmas. I'll (eventually) get it down. It's just a bit frustrating because I can't lift any of the storage boxes so I have to depend on hubby to help me and our schedules are so NOT together. Soooo who knows, I may have it up til Christmas this year LOL

Darlene, girl, me and trouble seem to go hand in hand today LOL Let's see....nearly got hit head on TWICE on the way to work. As you can tell, I'm fine LOL It's that TOM so, need I say more? Well, I will anyway LOL I feel like something the dog drug up that the cat didn't want emoticon When I got home from work, hubby had to leave for work, which for him, was probably a blessing in disguise LOL I put the heating pad on my ab and let it do its work.....feel a little better. At least that part has eased up a bit.

As for exercise, I didn't work out my 10 mins today but did manage to squeeze in bits and pieces of brisk walking as I could. Honestly, I hurt all day long and at times could barely stand. I'm praying this will be over soon! I'm off from work tomorrow so I do plan to get some things done around the house and hopefully some exercise as well.

I have a question ....... what is best....distance or time? As for as when you are exercising. Is it best to walk longer or farther?

Ok, nuff from me...I'm going to go bother someone else now LOL Have a great night all!

LOL! Well it's like this . . . when we moved into our house on Dec 5th, 2007, we were so busy unpacking and getting settled that we didn't have time to really decorate for Christmas. We had a little 3 ft pink tinsel tree and the hubby told me we could have a big tree and go all out with the decorating the next year. So in 2008 we bought a 12 ft tree and put up. After Christmas, he said it was too much trouble to take it down and we really didn't have anywhere to store it. I took the decorations off, but the tree stayed up. 2009, same thing! 2010, I took the Christmas decorations off and decorated it for spring with butterflies and spring-y stuff. 2011, left tree up decorated for Christmas ALL year!! 2012, I begged him to take it down!!! He has been a good sport about it and floored me a corner of the attic to store it! I sure do love that man!! :-)

It has been a beautiful few days here. The hubby went with me for a 3.5 mile walk today and it felt so good outside. Looks like a storm coming in though. I hope everybody has a great day!!

Lol Barb do we even want to know why your Christmas tree was up for 4 years ? ok yes I want to know lol ...

Janet glad you found the TAT place .. it is a quiet little place so you are welcome to stir up any trouble you want in here lol ... I agree about the loneliness that comes from your son growing up but hang in there I know from experience that they come home ..

I was sick all weekend with a stomach virus of some sort that my two lovely grandsons brought us lol but i am much better today thank goodness one more night of that and i think death would have been better. I was able to get a 2.8 mile walk today just took me a little longer to do .

Hope everyone is having a great day !!!

Welcome Janet!!

The hubby is home so I haven't been checking in regularly. I will try to do better! We have been busy working around the house . . . cleaning out and making some much needed improvements. I am also happy to report that after 4 years of being in the living room, the Christmas tree has been taken down!! I am so excited! My living room looks so much bigger now.

I hope everybody has a great week! I will try to check in again soon.

Hey y'all! I'm a newbie here but I've been blessed to have found a buddy already :D Isn't God just the greatest?!

So, Darlene....that shopping trip.....I'm with you on simplfying life! If we had less choices, maybe we'd all have less of a weight issue as well? I'm a shopper only when I have my coupons. Otherwise, I simply do not like to shop.....I really never have been though. Maybe when I lose all this weight, I'll like it better? Then I can stand around in the stores staring at all the different choices and within 5 hours determine what I want to buy? Maybe I won't talk myself out of it either LOL

Ok, nuff rambling for me. I see you ladies have sons. I have a 22 y/o son, Zach. I hardly ever see due to conflict in working schedules and of course the fact that he lives nearly an hour away and has a girlfriend and has another life and seems to have forgotten he has a mom.....and and and and.....isn't that always the story? I try not to let it bother me, but being a mom, it does. I can't help it. I miss my kid! Oh well, maybe he'll come around one day.

So glad to have found this team! Mississippians Rock! Thanks for listening to the newbie....I will now shut up LOL Have a great weekend!!!

and Good morning to my team of wonderful Mississippians ... Lord it was foggy this morning ... Has anyone else noticed how radical things have changed over the years ? yesterday I was shopping for of all things shampoo shelves and shelves of pretty little bottles but I could not find one bottle that said for "oily Hair" ... really come on can we just go back to the simplified things in life ... ok my fit is over lol

Barb you are right coming here just seems to make one kinda accountable ... it is nice to go somewhere and say i had a good day or I had a bad day to people who actually understand the process and how it just isnt the same everyday ..

Hope everyone is having a great day !!!

Darlene the move to Texas didn't work out, not yet anyway.

I can understand about being busy working around the house, it has been that way for me too. I have been trying to make it here to SP regularly because it seems that I make better progress when I do, I think it is the accountability factor.

Good job Barb on finding an exercise that you can do .. I walked today but it was difficult .. hopefully they get my rehab scheduled soon .. Tomorrow I am planning on walking at the beach I love it there .. Sorry for the time spans in between post but I have been extremely busy getting things back in order around the house.

Barb I am glad your son is getting set up and isnt completely alone .. I am sure he will do great ... Did you move to Texas ?

I hope everyone is having a great week !!!

The last couple of days I have had quite a few errands to run but have also managed to get in my workouts on my exercise bike!

He seems to be acclimating to being in a different city. There are some boys from some of the high schools here in the Greenville area that is attending Ole Miss so, he does know somebody there. My son's room mate is from the coast, I believe. He also just finished at a community college just like Jesse did.

Today I rode the exercse bike 45 minutes. Walking on our road at this point is out of the question, my foot and ankle acts up after a few days of walking on the pavement. Riding the indoor bike doesn't seem to bother it.

Barb I am sure that your son will continue to do great away from home but it can be tough on us moms. Both of my sons have been gone from home for a bit, after my oldest sons divorce last year he moved back home with me and that is just fine lol . If i had a house big enough they could just live here forever lol . It looks like everyone is doing pretty good for the most part. Sorry I had to take a couple of days to get some organizing in the chaos. Things are starting to look like home again. I missed walking Thursday and Friday but have done 2.8 miles on Saturday and Sunday.. I hope to keep that up but it is turning off cold again. That winter cold really hurts my ankle so not sure about it so we will just have to see how cold it gets. I hope everyone has a great week. emoticon

I made good use of the time the laptop was out of commission, I got our guest room in shape. It had become a catch all for junk since it isn't used often. This week we started getting the feel of what being empty nesters will be like. Our son moved into his dorm over at Ole Miss. He finished up at the local community college last month. This will be his first time living away from home.

Barb, I know how you feel. I had computer issues to start off the year too!! Glad you are back up and running.

It was another beautiful day today. I had to run some errands while Sebastian had his tennis lesson today, but I did get in 3.34 miles this evening when we got home. I am so thankful for the sunshine!!

I hope everybody has a great weekend!

Team sorry for not being around! It was my plan to start the year off by posting regularly but my laptop had other plans. It was acting up and it took longer than anticipated to repair. I have a mobile phone but, when you have bad eyesight posting becomes difficult on a mobile phone or Kindle Fire. I do have new glasses ordered though! LOL The laptop is fixed now so hopefully I can start posting daily!

Woke up to snow this morning! Thankfully it wasn't a lot and it melted pretty quick. Then came the glorious SUN!! It was a beautiful day!! I walked 3.34 miles AND did 30 minutes of circuit training. I guess I was so excited that we had a day of no rain I did double exercise. Hoping tomorrow will be a pretty day as well.

Darlene, good luck with the moving!

It rained again all day today. :-( I did my circuit training though so that is good. It is so easy for me to be lazy on days like this!!

Darlene ~ glad you got some cleaning done and got your walk in! I am so not a housekeeper! I really need to do better with that.

Lisa ~ way to go getting your exercise in!

It is rianing again. I did not do gazelle yesterday but going to when I get home today. I did do some wall push ups and some side crunches yesterday and already done some today.

Hey Darlene do you want to come my house and clean my house emoticon . I just tend to stop when I get home from moping and cleaning in the lunch room.

Good news is the computer at work is working great the one at home and my phone is not working so great but will try to check in every work day.

Stay warm and dry and get your walk in. emoticon

Hey all,

Glad to hear yall are getting your walking in. I dont do that many miles yet. I am doing 30 on the gazelle. I just heard about a 5k in Feb that my sister is going to do and I plan to sign up with her.

I have started Monday so tomorrow will show how much I done. I did gazelle 5 days this week. So not a bad start.

O help can't remember how to put the tractor thing at the bottom of my page. Can you help?

Sebastian made the team!!! I am so excited for him. He worked really hard for this!

I walked 3.33 miles this evening. It sprinkled on me for a few minutes, but then it cleared up. I am so glad! I have been missing getting outside.

Darlene, I hope it clears up so you can get out too!!

Oh happy rainy friday ... I was hoping to get my walk in early today but it has been raining since I got up .. Hopefully soon it will stop though I feel the need to get out and do it . There is so much going on right now if I have to stay in this apartment I will surely give way to my emotions .

I hope Sebastian gets on the team although I am positive he will ... I feel you about the rain and sparkpeople issue they both will stop messing up our plans soon lol...

Have a great day everyone emoticon

Darlene ~ Sorry your appointment didn't go as well as you had hoped. Just keep it up and you will get there!!

Barb ~ Keep up the good work!! You will see results!

This has been a really busy week! Sebastian had tennis tryouts Monday and Tuesday. I was surprised that they did them Tuesday since it was raining. The courts were soaking wet and the balls ended up being saturated before they were finished. He will know tomorrow if he made the team.

The weather hasn't cooperated for me to walk, but I have done circuit training 2 days this week. I've been having trouble with the SparkPeople website so I haven't been able to do the videos for this week. Hopefully I can get started on those soon.

Hope everyone is having a good evening emoticon

Good evening team .. I have been getting my walks in even increasing here and there periodically ... Yesterday I had a follow up appointment with my foot and well it didnt go as well as I expected it to go. He said I wasnt as far along as he would like so I have to go back in two months. He also said not to be concerned because it was two surgeries with serious complications so we will just keep going like we are. I hope everyone is doing good and getting in some exercise in all this nasty weather .... emoticon
