Hi Bonshell! I'm hoping my daughter will try again sometime, but it's tricky. As her mom anything I say is, by definition, giving her a hard time. A "Hey, want to join me on my walk?" is perceived as "Join me on my walk or else you lazy bum who never exercises or does anything right AARRGH". emoticon I'm going to have to wait for the right moment.

I wish I could join you on your walk Abrandnewme, 60 degrees sounds *wonderful*! We're far enough north that I've been on our basement treadmill for some time now. I usually go there first thing MWF mornings. If I wait until later in the day something else always takes priority and the time is gone.

Making my first attempt to join in a discussion. I've been logging onto SparkPeople for a couple years (off and on) but never really learned a lot about the tools, etc. SPROCKETS1, I think it's great that your daughter tried 2-3 times. Maybe next time, she'll go 3-4 times before quitting. :)

How did working out with your son go SHONPASSOULE? I tried to get my daughter to join me, and she quit on the second or third try. I'd love to hear any tips you have on keeping the kids engaged.

I made a great discovery today: I am no longer obese! YAY! Just rather overweight now, at least by the sparkpeople BMI calculator. That might sound a little lame to some, but it's been *years* since I could say that! Woo! Happy dance! emoticon

Hello. Well, so far my week is going well. I have been keeping up with my blogging and my workouts are yielding changes that I can see.....I have no complaints today about anything. I am on the floor doing my ab/core workout while I surf the web and get points on SP but later on today I am going to go try some of the fitness classes at the YMCA here in Houston, TX. I didn't REALLY eat what I thought was right but it was low in calories and since I started back running I figured I needed the added protein.

Now, as for the rest of the week.....well I am trying to find a way to include my son in my workouts so that he can benefit and change his life as well. So later on today I am going to take him to the gym as well and we are going to enjoy working out together. It is important to me that I get him into working out on a regular basis so that he does NOT end up as big as I am. Now.....if only I could get him to keep up with me when I went running. Lol.

Hello all I'm having a rough day today....can't stop thinking about my son who recently passed away and I've been crying all day I had to leave the gym because as I was walking I just started balling...I did come home and finish up a dvd just so I can get my workout done...I'm so sad right now....I'm sorry I don't mean to get anyone down or annoyed at me but I just needed to talk about it....I did feel better when I logged on to sparks I had a thoughtful message on my sparkpage today from a friend and it made me smile...I'm going to be better by tomorrow I'm sure...sorry

I did go see the DR and the crazy part is the diabetic part is mainly due to the sudden weight gain so if I lose at least what I gained then that shld be okay. All he pretty much told me was to eat healthy and eat cantaloupe lol. But I am going to follow your advice and set small goals so it doesn't seem overwhelming and you are also right failing is not an option think I just needed to hear that so thanks so much for that and for the tips. And I have been planning and am gonna try out some of these amazing recipes they have on here :)

Clear with your doctor that you want to go on a fitness program. Ask what kinds of exercises are ok for you and at what intensity. You might want to ask if there is suggested diet plan for diabetes and heart disease. Ask and you might qualify for a nutritionist to personalize your eating plan through your physician. Under "Health Conditions" there is info on Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. There might even be support groups through SparkPeople for these particular online support groups.

Make small goals that are attainable. Like maybe the first one is to go to your dr. Or cutting something small out of your diet that the dr. has suggested is not good for you. This program to me is about small goals and achieving them. Then setting bigger goals eventually. Start small and achieve small victories to snowball your confidence level. Failure is not an option. The option here is setting the appropriate goal and being continuously successful: * Sparking you *

BTW, I'm 38 now, but I've been to the ER two times within 6 months at the age of 37. Then I had surgery. Got a post-op infection. I was hospitalized 4 days sharing rooms with people double my age. I now volunteer at the same hospital and cheer patients up at bedside and emphathize with them being bed-ridden in a hospital attached to IVs and feeling down. Sometimes there are younger people than you and I that are going to go through chemo or have other health probs. I also visit nursing homes. Don't give up. My wounds and imperfections have made me a better person. I still might need more surgery, but I'll do that if that is the best option for me when the time comes.

I also have a teen with Autism, but anytime she achieves a developmental milestone, it's a joy that I can't explain. Raising her has been very difficult to say the least. You can't prepare for it.


Take Care and Much Love!

Okay so I am curious to find out how to plan this diet to make it work.. I think I'm scared to even start it because I don't want to fail myself. I have never been a healthy cook I had my first child when I was 16 and my cooking skills and knowledge was nothing special. My mom passed away when I was 17 while in the process of teaching me to cook. Then after she passed I some how took her place of taking care of the family even tho I was the youngest and somewhere along the road I forgot to take care of myself , then 2 weeks ago I got a reality check I went into see the DR because I thought I had a cold or flu and got admitted into the hospital I had blood clots in my lungs am diabetic and have a heart decease not exactly what you want to hear when you have 3 sons with no grandparents and an entire family that depends on you to solve all their problems . I was in the hospital for 7 days and while there I was on so many medicines and I have never been a big eater but they put me on these steroids and while in the there I gained 49lbs and in the last week I have been home I have continued to gain 15lbs more that's 64lbs in a matter of weeks very scary for me I wasn't a small girl before but I felt a lot healthier today is my last day on these pills so I'm going to start this diet and I'm gonna give it 100% because I want to see my kids grow up and be here for them and I'm only 32 and don't wanna feel 50 anymore so if any of you have some good tips or advice I would really appreciate it. Writing this about myself I think has been the hardest thing because I am a very shy and quiet person but if it helps then it was worth it..... Oh and almost forgot I am also trying to quit smoking at the same time which I hear is very hard to do so any tips on that wld be great to.... Thank you so much

Welcome Cateyez! Been here 4 weeks and have seen positive results. I have two teenaged girls and have learned to be calmer and deal with my stress in other ways besides eating.

Good Luck!

Congrads on staying off the soda!!!! Keep it up! I enjoy herbal teas.

Congrads on staying within your calorie range!!!!

I just started doing that paying particular attention to my carb intake. My dr. suggested lower carbs since I had a hard time staying within my calorie ranges. I tried that for 3 days and I lost another pound since Monday by keeping up with my exercise and just changing what I put in! I am so excited about being full and satified, but still losing weight. I do like to eat sweets. I don't deprive myself, but I really limit my portions.
IT'S WORKING!!!!
Another thing...I have pain in both my knees and have to limit walking and no jogging. My doctor said biking was good as long as I don't go uphill or do a spinning class. Pain and surgery...is something that I have been living with and it's also cause be to gain weight. Check with your dr. if any alternate exercise would be appropriate so that you are keeping up with your exercise and not hurting yourself.

Much Love and Keep Going Everyone!

emoticon everyone for emoticon for us. We go to the stores on the 20th to pay resolutions. Then on the 23rd we go to Court and report in to the Judge. Robert is worrying about going to Court. I told him that it would be alright. The 23rd is also the day that the school is getting flu shots. Robert is asking where he will get his shot if he misses it at school. I told him that I would have to take him out of school one day when the county has it's mass flu clinic.

Hope everyone is having a good day with whatever you do.

Sharon,
My prayers are with you. No one will judge you or your son. Everyone makes mistakes and we learn from them. It is part of growing up. If we never fell off the mountain we would never learn how to climb it. My recommendation is to have an open line of communication with the Juvenile Officer handling the case. I hope all works out for you and know that we are here if you need to vent, talk, or a shoulder to lean on. Hugs and prayers to you and your family.
take care. emoticon emoticon

Tomorrow is a new beginning...

Everyone emoticon pray for my son. A 16 year old talked my 12 year old into stealing for him. Come to find out this 16 yr old isn't the first time for him. The officer is wanting to send Robert for a mental eval, but the hospital said Robert don't qualify because he isn't bad enough. So I don't know what the next step is yet. Still waiting to hear. This situation has had me stressed out to the point that I don't feel like working out. Sorry I haven't been around much but haven't felt like talking to anyone about it. I was afraid that people would judge me by this and accuse me of not being a good mother. Hope everyone has a good evening with what ever you do.

I'm sorry your 14 yr old needs another surgery! It's so hard to schedule these things around school breaks, and aside from spring break there are so few holidays in the first half of the year. My experience with it is limited, but we've found that the surgeons often are less rushed early in the week than they are on Fridays, when everybody wants to schedule their procedures before the weekend.

Good morning everyone...did you workout today....I did....I have to take my 14 yr old in to see the doctor and schedule for a second hip surgery in four months....I'm not like this I was hoping he would make it through to the summer months and not have to take off school days....but it doesn't look like the hip will make it to June...

What are your plans for the day sparkers.....

You're down six pounds? Congrats! That's great! There's no way I'm going to weigh myself today, I fell off the wagon this weekend when my husband brought home a delicious pizza. Sooo good, I just chowed down, Boo! Going to spend a little extra time on the treadmill today to try to burn off a small part of it. emoticon

Happy Saturday everyone....how's it going....I'm having a great weekend so far and planning a family gathering tomorrow so I'm cooking right now....just popped on to read some emails and check in on some teams....I'm currently doing the Jillian Micheals Body Revelution right right....I like it and it's not as tough as I thought it would be at least right now the first week anyway but I heard it gets harder as you go on....

Has anyone ever tried Jillian Michaels Body Revolutions if so give me a quick review of what you liked about it....as you went further into the programs....well back to emails have a wonderful night everyone

Hey everyone! Yesterday was a crazy day. I spent most of it in the car running errands for the kids, but thank goodness squeaked a workout in there first before getting started! Today I was going to catch up on things like all the dishes that didn't get done yesterday, but both the kids are home sick with some sort of stomach bug that's going around. It's quiet right now, so I'm going to see how much I can catch up on before they perk up and start being cranky with each other.

Hi everyone,
Sorry I have been MIA lately. But things have been busy with teaching special needs students, keeping up with things at home and just trying to fit in everything in a short period of time during the day.
Sounds like you are all doing well!
I love that you are getting your excerise in! I love Leslie Sansone's dvd's. But I haven't done one of them in a while. I think once it gets colder and harder to walk outside then I will break out the dvd's. I have been doing the Spark People 28 day Boot Camp dvd. This is the second month I have been doing. So after I finish it up this coming Saturday, I think I am going to take a break from it for a month and do the Biggest Loser At Home Challenge DVD. I have been doing really good on my losing weight. I have lost 23.8 pounds since the end of May. 6 just this month alone. So I think I finally figured out the secert for me to lose weight. I needed to add strenght training into my workouts.
Well I better go and wash those dinner dishes. They don't seem to get done any other way do they. Have a great week ladies!

Kerry

@Sprockets I'm sorry your scale broke I just bought a Withings Wifi Scale and I love it and it evens connects to your spark account here and a lot of other weight loss websites...I love it...It cost 159.0 so I'm not sure if you're looking to go for something like that but it's worth every penny I spent on it check out the link below to see if you would be interested
