I actually drank 9 glasses of water yesterday. Today, I'm going to get at least 30 fitness minutes in.
What are you going to do today?

I could use some support other than just my husband. He's great, but he's the only support I have. Every time I tell my family I'm trying to lose weight, they start showering me with cake and candy. So I haven't told them this time, and I'm feeling like quitting even though it's only been a couple weeks. Would someone please huddle with me?

Hi Jeff, Nice to meet you.
I'm Susie, I live in Southern California.
Are you type 1 or 2 Diabetic?
Being a diabetic you need to drastically reduce your carbs.
What do you typically eat there daily?

Good to see you on here Julia. Yes, it's much better. I was even able to skate a little yesterday. I was so weak so only skated around 3 times.Went on Jobs Daughters Leadership Camp trip this last weekend and was so exhausting walking up and down steep hills to go to dining hall and different classes.I even had to trek up & down a very long uphill just get My daughter's special ketogenic food I brought.
I've got chicken tenders in green enchiladas sauce, onions, garlic, diced green chilies and olives in a pan in the oven now.

Haha, I'm going to make sugar-free raspberry vinaigrette today and have a salad of spinach, swisschard, bokchoy, strawberries & nuts. So will get my fruit & veggies in at once,

Serious note here- A was a fool before April fools. Was going to roller skate today or tomorrow but silly me, I twisted to get out the car when coming home from the Mexican Market and I pinched a nerve in my hip, on the outside, at the joint. Waddled straight to bed, put heating pad on it and laid down for an hour. It's about 60% better. Feels better if I keep moving within my pain limits and do stretches with breathing techniques so the hip joint does not stiffen. I can walk & sit with min-mod pain so it's bearable now. Only doing 1 load laundry today, using dryer, not hanging on the clothesline.

Drank 1 cup of coffee and 2 cups of tea, ate a salad of 1 roma tomato and two cups combined of spinach, Swiss chard & kale with 2 tsp oil & 2 tsp vinegar.
Off to a good start today. My roller skates are in. Going to pick them up today and possibly try to roller skate.

Dropping things eh? Was that just one day? I have days like that. Many of my dishes are broken.
I've gained a little weight, but my clothes still loose. Been exercising every other day.

Feel good today but I'm dropping so much. I dropped the pre packaged breakfast that went everywhere and was a big mess to clean up, then I dropped the yogurt container with some of the yogurt spilling out too. Oh well, when I went to clean up the yogurt I saw some more of the bean/rice/broth mixture I had miss in the last clean up. Ugh. The sun is shining and I am in a warm house. I planned on having a great day whether I drop more stuff or not.
Blessings to all

Monday huddle.
I buy the $5 bag of pre cleaned shrimp without tails. I only need like 5 shrimp in my stir fry of fried rice and that seems to be more than enough. This way the bag last me like 20 prepared servings. I feel some like I'm spurring on myself whenever I add shrimp to things. The bag of shrimp is 12 oz and "xs" (100-150 shrimp per pound).
I make my fried rice with brown long grain rice and olive oil. The bag of stir fried veggie pre cleaned and cut and frozen were $7.49 for a 29 serving bag. (26 cents per serving)

Up 4 pounds in one day. I ate out at a restrautant yesterday. I hope it is just a temporary weight change to fluid retention. I don't look that puffy. Today is another day. My eating habits have been inconsistent. I will focus on the positives and continue to do my best. Today is a new opportunity to do the right thing.
Spark cheers everyone and happy emoticon

emoticon Tuesday. I have been making stock from soup bones. Wow does this look and taste wonderful! I started by roasting the bones in oven then transferring to stock pot. I added celery and water and cooked on stovetop a few hours. I transferred then to a slow cooker and added frozen Kale. I cooked on low overnite. By 10am I tried. I am amazed at the finished produce. I can't waste the veggies, so I will separate this with the bone when I package the stock to refrigerator/freezer. The first sampleing was with Quiona and heirloom beans. I should have taken a picture emoticon . Take care everyone. Sincerely, Julia

So sorry to hear about your unexpected expenses Susan. So glad to hear Mary is doing so well. I see the connection between proper food and health, so I sincerely hope you can continue the healthy menu and you are provided savings in other areas of your expenses.
emoticon and I'm so grateful it is FREE!
Enjoy the weekend. I have been enjoying too many cherry tootsie pops that are available this time of year for Valentine Day. I need to get with the program and put my health first.
Sincerely, Julia

emoticon Broke a tooth, went to dentist. After the check up I had to have deep cleaning & laser disinfectant , 2 crowns. Now have to pay $100 a month for 12 months to pay it off. That's half our monthly food budget. When income tax return comes in I'm stocking up on food.

That is so very great news about Mary. Wow!!!!! What a testimonial. It is tough for a young person to adhere to a healthy diet, this is a great motivator for all us moms. Super cool!

Oh yes, planning ahead is best way to go for sure!

Good news about my 14 yr old daughter,Mary. Cardiologist commended me for her healthy diet this past year, it actually improved her heart so much that she no longer needs heart surgery. Mary was in tears and hugged me & thanked me.

Planning ahead is the way to be cost affective.
Yesterday I spent over $6 at a gas station for 1 water, small apple and very small banana. Later in the day I was able to get 3# of apples! a 90 serving can of coffee and a bunch of celery for $6.23. Planning ahead to go to grocery store is definitely the way to go. Plan ahead is the way to go.

I started my at home PT (physical therapy) exercises again. Wow, how out of strength I am. But, if I do my best and I'm consistent, I will improve.
Susan, have you been skating lately? Do you and your daughter own skates or do you rent them?
In the town I grew up in the high school now has a girls hockey team. A person sees people roller blading everywhere around town. They just carry a pair of shoes in a sling pack over their shoulders. It was so icy there a couple of weeks ago, people were ice skating on the streets. That ice condition lasted several days. It was wild.
When I worked over in Holland I would see the locals skating on the rivers from location to location. It wasn't unusual for people to skate to work. How wild is that.
I look forward to hearing the activity you and your daughter get involved in. My daughters all have such different interest than me.
I use to love to play tennis. My body can't anymore, but that was an inexpensive activity when I was younger.
So enjoy your sharing Susan. Take care!

Happy MLK Holiday everyone.
I'm back home after being away nearly 3 months. I weighed today and I'm 8 pounds over my goal weight. I know that this "Sparkpeople" method works so I am happy to get back on track. I hope to be able to check in more regularly now that I'm home for awhile. Being active on the site is critical to my weight management sucess. I love SP!!!

emoticon everyone. Well today is a good day to stay inside. The town I am in today has a real temperature of 20 degrees below zero and a "real feel" temperature of -50 F.
For breakfast today I had a hot bowl of oatmeal with pineapple in it. A different kind of flavor that will hopefully help my joints today. I have been indulging in way too much sugary items the last couple of weeks and my body is rebelling. Why I consume foods that physically hurt so much is baffling to me, but I do. I'm an "all of nothing" kind of girl and I need to be on the nothing side soon, or my body wont function for me.
I wish you all a healthy day with appropriate choice for you as an individual. Sincerely, Julia

You are a great example. Caution, read about that Y.M., I was thinking it can't be drank everyday long term. But, I am confident you are checking all this because you are that kind of thinker.
emoticon stress can cause the blood pressure to go up to. I hope you find a healthy solution that is right for you.
I am so proud of you. You are taking great care of yourself as well as daughter while on a limited budget. You are terrific.
Take care, and thanks for sharing!

Saturday Dec 14th Huddles emoticon

I lost 76 lbs, now at 130 lbs. Doctor says my weight is good for my age. I eat raw nuts, cook with healthy oils & use garlic regularly. I eat about 4-6 oz lean meat a day with lots of rich colored & leafy vegetables and drink green tea and unsweetened almond milk. I use Stevia to sweeten. All this healthy eating and I now have high blood pressure. My blood pressure was great last Christmas when I weighed 150 lbs.
What this boils down to... no more morning coffee. I am now drinking Guayaki Yerba Mate Spiced Chai.

So my morning tea is at the table reading local newspaper before my immensely busy day begins. Jobs Daughters Installation ceremony tonight for my daughter. There's a parade and color run tonight too, very close to Masonic lodge. Since traffic & parking will be too stressful for me tonight, I will go when my daughter has to be there at 11 am and stay entire day.
