I'm here and I'm serious about getting this weight off in 2009. Today is Sunday and I'm focused and ready to get a lot accomplished today, including eating withing my calorie range, drinking at least 8 glasses of water and doing a pilates dvd workout this afternoon. Oh yeah, I have to clean my apartment too - so there's some more burned calories!

I hope everyone has a great day today - keep up the spark!

Rochelle,

You are in my prayers! I am glad that you came through that ordeal fine! Don't worry, you'll get those 7 pounds off and then some! We're here with you!

I really have to apologize to everyone. I have had a stressful last few months. First of all, I hurt my knee and had a lot of trouble walking. That has finally worked itself out. Then I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I just had my tumour removed on Thursday the 18th. I feel blessed that it did not reach my lymph nodes but am waiting to hear what stage or what kind of cancer I have - malignant or benign. I feel great though and I know that I will come through this just fine. Unfortunately, as I was going through these challenges, I turned to food for comfort and gained 7 pounds. So I am going to start over again with stage 1 of spark people and get back on track in 2009.

I hope everyone has a blessed and merry xmas and a great holiday.

Rochelle

BLACKBIRD311,

I am glad you are still with us. In January, we are going to have a Getting Back To Business Challenge. I hope you are going to participate in it. So, get ready, because we are going to have fun as well as get fit!

Donna,

Welcome to the team! We were talking about how there has not been a lot of participation with the group and I was trying to explain that it has to do with the busyness of the holidays. Also, can you please share with us what you would like to see with the team? It would be so greatly appreciated!

DODOYE78,

I am sorry that you are disappointed! However, we are usually a very active team. Right now, I know everyone is quite busy with the holidays! Like I stated to Marly, just hang in there and let me know what you would like to see with the team. I am open to suggestions and ideas.

Sincerely,

Stevie

Ladies,

Don't worry! We will be getting our groove back! Let's first get through the holidays and then get our motivation back! I know I am already tired of the cookies and cakes! Ugh! However, I just ordered a new extreme DVD for myself for Christmas in order to push the intensity of my workouts. So once more, exciting things are coming up in 2009!

Marly,

You are absolutely right! I am the administrator of the group and I have been extremely busy for the past 2 months. However, I need to bring back my excitement and enthusiasm to the group. So, thank you soooo much for expressing yourself. In January, we are going to be doing some group challenges! However, I do hope you as well as the other ladies will join me in the gift challenge for this month! So, don't worry, we are on a mission! Just remember we have the holidays to get through and watch the impact of the group in the upcoming weeks and months!

So, hang in there!

Sincerely,

Stevie

P.S. Thanks again!

No worries... Happy Thanksgiving All!
My daughter & I just finished a 3 mile Turkey Trot run. Now I'm in negative calories going into supper-(woohoo). There were about 3,000 people there, amazing & great fun. Be good today, load up on white turkey, veggies, salad, anything green & have one serving spoon of starches. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it. Yes, I will have small slice of pumpking pie, but no whipped cream thank you! Have a wonderful day everyone----Cath

I guess I forgot to take into account what week this is. Sorry if I offended anyone I really didn't mean to. I guess I am still in need all the help I can get mode to keep motivated. I am having a hard time with the exercise part, I still have to do mine for today. Going to squeeze it in while the pies are baking. I've just got to keep telling this demon inside my head that I do have time to exercise and that I can do it every day. My demon has run me for a long time and she isn't liking me shutting her down! So way to go everyone for keeping focused and thank you for not taking my post wrong.

I AGREE...I HAVE BEEN ON TRACK JUST HAVE NOT BEEN ON THE COMPUTER MUCH LATELY.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore, honor God with your body.

Marly - You are not alone! We are out here plugging away right along with you. I'm exercising now more than I ever did. Turned 50yo this year and started training for a marathon in January. So no lack of commitment this time! Keep checking in no matter what. Over time, you will see that someone really cares every time... just like now. Cat

Here we are women on a mission and yet no one is posting or acting as if they are on a mission. I am on a mission to get this weight off! I joined this group because I thought wow here is a group that means business, but in reality no one really seems to be. Come on ladies we all need help each other in accomplishing our missions and I know you guys can help me. I've read your replies and I liked what I read, so are you all ready to take our missions serious?
