It is now the beginning of May and as I have had no new members joining or present ones returning I have decided to give the job of leader of this team up. I will still keep up my reading of the James Patterson novels.

Thank you for having me.

Good evening team,

I have been without my computer for the last 10 days and have been frustrated and stressed out trying to fix it. After buying a new modem and finding that the old one was alright I ended up ringing my ISP and eventually they got it going again.

During this time I just "binged" on everything that came into reach - hence at weigh-in Monday my weight had blossomed out again. This has pulled my motivation down to "rock bottom"

I hope you have all been well and that the week has gone by with you feeling enthusiasm and achievement.

Enjoy the rest of the week team.

Happy Reading.

April has started and we are on the countdown to Easter. The time just seems to fly by. I bought a new mobile (cell phone) on Saturday and spent most of my time trying to work it out - at my age it is difficult. Time will tell if I understand its features.

I hope that ypou all have a good week.

Happy Reading team. emoticon

emoticon Good morning team - it is still dark outside here in Australia and it looks like being a nice day. I am on my own this morning as my husband has an appointment to see the doctor in Melbourne. It is quiet and I don't feel hassled as I normally do.

Now for a few chores and then I will settle down and start listening to my latest book.

I hope you all have a good day.

I have just become the Team Leader of this site and hope that many of the members will start posting again.

It is Sunday today and my eyes have been playing up so I am having a quiet day.

What has everyone else been doing?

Hi Friends!!
I have been spending most of my time outside playing in my yard. But the last couple of weeks it has been way too humid to be out very long.
I don't really mind the heat too much but hate the humidity!!

I have been going out to take photos of my flowers each day. This week I go out early in the morning and just after 10 or 15 minutes I am dripping with sweat and am only standing around snapping pictures!! LOL

I read for an hour or two just before bedtime. That is about all I have done lately. Have been reading different authors.
I am reading a Patrica Cornwell right now. Before that I read a couple of Nora Roberts books.
I like hers that are novels but not her shorter stories. The only thing about her books are the romance gets a little long and boring, too much over and over the same thing....
LOL, now what does that say about me!!! LOL

I will be off line for a little over a week. My sister and I are leaving tomorrow for Colorado!! I am very excited!!!
See ya when I get back!!
JO

Hi Ladies, I got the same way for awhile had two trips to make. We went in May to see our son and his family in Michigan. Then in June we had a family reunion we also plan each year with two other couples and it was June 27th in Missouri so we traveled and camped twice already a record for us but it did put me behind in Spark Posting and reading so I will be glad to get back to that.

I don't know if I mentioned it or not but I joined TOPS and Curves Smart for exercise and losing weight too so am trying to do better about the exercise part of this journey to being thinner and fitter.

Also just read James Patterson's "Swimsuit" a kind of a different book for him but just finished that yesterday after running all day I came home and read the last few chapters.

I still much prefer Alex Cross and the Women's Murder Club books though and the ones just by him not him and another Author.

I did like the two books he did on a Detective called Michael Beenett though. The one where the guy has ten kids to raise. I won't say much more about that till I know if all of you have read those.

Glad to get back to reading and posting on Spark People again.

Hope all is good with you.

Action pictures can be hard to take. But sometimes the blurr makes an interesting picture, it shows the movement....
That is funny what Ken said! Good for him and you!!

Loads of good luck with your pearl business!!!
And lots of luck with Curves!
All of my yard work has been all of the execise I have been doing the last few weeks.
It gets me stiff and sore so I figured that is enough for me for now!! ha ha

And I have been losing weight so I am happy!!
I am hoping to be down to 200 by the time my sister and I go Colorado in July. I think I may lack just a few pounds but I am sure a lot closer then I was six months ago!!!
And I feel so much better all ready!!!

Trying to learn how to use the action feature on my new camera, the action shots SUCK! but I did get a good slighly side profile of the driver that I am going to use and put it in with another photo to feather his face into the Car ### on the side. It is going to be his birthday present. I had to laugh though, this 'photographer' came by the pit and said he got a really good shot of the car, and if you wanted to purchase it, he could stop by his studio. Ken (the driver) said "I have my own photographer, thank you" LOL
Busy week ahead for me I am committing to getting back to curves, and my Pearl business will be off and running this friday. wish me luck.
Hope you all have a GREAT happy healthy Week.
Love
Sheila

My sister and I weren't close at all until our parents died. Partly because she always lived on on coast and me on another and we neither one could afford the time or the money or both to visit each other. We didn't see each other for more then 20 years. We still don't see each other but talk on the phone regularly now and are close even though it isn't in person. We are it for our family other then some cousins who don't keep in touch at all so it is us and only us to keep in touch now. I think partly we weren't close because she was only 11 when I was 17 and I got married and left home to begin moving around with a husband in the Navy.

Hope everyone has a great Mother's Day today. I have my sister has called and we talked for a couple of hours. Our son in Michigan called and our daughter in California sent me a miniature Rose and a ecard. Our son here where we live and his wife and kids called and asked us to meet him at the mexican restaurant for dinner which we did so we saw and heard form everyone on Mother's Day. Even an ex son in law we are still close to came over with a card for me and to give me a hug and hope I had a good day. Can't get much better then that LOL

Th arrest is just a fund raiser for the March of Dimes. But that is why I could not do it. I am raising money for relay already there is no way I could do it for 2 fundraisers.
I will have to get pictures of my flowers posted so you can see the beautiful color.
My sister is here visiting, I had to check my mail, then off to bed I go, big day planned for tomorrow.
have a happy healthy day!!!!

I have been spending 4 to 6 hours a day playing in my yard and flower beds.
So haven't been doing much reading. I enjoy it when I lay down at night. But then I get sleepy and so don't read long! LOL

Boy those pearls are pretty. I bet the flowers you bought yourself are too would love to see one that color that is .


That's scary I bet someone trying to arrest you for something you didn't even do wonder who turned you in or whatever don't you??? Glad you got out of that OK and explained it,and yes the Relay for Life thing and starting a new business are plenty all at one time ha ha.

I am having enough trouble trying to get to curves three times a week for a month tryout with them and Avon putting that free trial on,and doing housework, and keeping up reading posts here and posting. The tracker and fitness reports filled out on TOPS forms too as well as Spark People's.

Oh I got the book the new James Patterson one 8th Target and started it so far it hasn't grabbed me in a way that i can't put it down like usual but have just started it. I did see on Barnes and Noble some comments about it not being as good because the 4 women in the Murder Club don't get together like usual to solve the crime though I have found all four women there so far it seems to be Lindsey and Cindy doing the looking into it most. let you know how it comes out not the ending LOL but if it is any good I mean. emoticon

Hi ladies, had a minute, so I thought I would check in real quick. I had some one turn me in to be arrested for the march of dimes. I told the man NO WAY, I do not have time. Yeah I said no!!!!!
with the relay, in 5 weeks, there is no way I can raise $$$ for both. My pearl business is getting off to a very good start, I have 5 parties booked in my first week and a half. I am way excited. Check out the pearls at vantelpearls.com
if the link doesnt work you can just go there from your browser. I bought flowers to plant the other day myself, I bought a hybiscus, it is salmon colored just beautiful.
Well I have got to get going. Later ladies.
Hope you have a happy healthy day!!!!

Even if you are on the right track, you'll get ran over if you just sit there!

Ha Ha I love being lazy too believe me and I am good at doing that really good at it but needed to get busy on me usually the last thing on my list till now. Now I figure the more I do to get healthier and lose weight hopefully the more time I will have to be lazy LOL. The problem is is getting to my housework now that I got involved in so much to lose and to exercise but oh well I am working at getting things working together I think anyway?????? Not sure if I am gaining on it or not.


Love my flowers too and have some up now and more i want to plant after we get back form our sons in May. Some big pots to fill with geraniums or my husband likes pansy's and wants us to plant them somewhere too and who knows what else we can find to plant then after the two trips there will be more time to play in the flower beds and pots I hope. emoticon

I am so happy being retired and no pressures.
I love planting flowers in my yard, that is the only thing keeping me busy right now. I plant several each day in my flower pots and raised beds.
That is relaxing to me....

WOW you are one busy person it sounds like. I walked with my daughter in the Relay for Life a year or two ago but didn't want to get involved in asking for any donations otherwise I wouldn't mind doing that again even though she has moved across county. She found out she had breast cancer last summer and had the works for treatments and just finished them all and is on pills for 5 years now. They found a spot in me but said it is benign hope they are right. Anyway cancer is a bigger thing then it used to be in our family since then and so I would love to help may find a way yet I know someone who helps with a Relay for Life team I think.

I list my food every day but am worried because we are going to Michigan for a week or two in May and a week in June we are going to Missouri for a cousins Reunion so worry about being where you eat in restaurants or other people's homes a lot hope I can at least maintain when we go.

Right now I am trying out curves tomorrow with a TOPS gal who had them call me for that free curves avon thing they have going on right now so not sure if I like the idea but am going to try it once anyway since I'm not good at sticking to exercising everyday on my own.

Your right on the night weigh ins I always weigh at home in the mornings in my nightshirt and underwear only then there we weigh at night and it runs 4 pounds or so more so have to figure out mornings what that would be at a night weigh in too.

Boy southern Illinois right now is hot and steamy feeling or at least steamy after very warm days lately then rain last night. Looking for some nice days to walk outside and really am ready for so much rain, or rain so often here to quit.

Hope everyone is having a good Thursday so far. emoticon

Also, keep in mind that night weigh ins are going to be higher than morning weigh ins. I have been sooo busy this past week, I haven't even had time to post my food, so I am not sure what exactly I have been doing. But AT least I am making good food choices, but when I am busy I tend to not eat enough, which is a bigger problem for me than eating to much. I am team captain for a relay for life team, which the relay is in 5 weeks. been busy with fundraising, and I am starting up my own business. I am way excited about it, Once I get going and stay organized it should all be good.
Hope you all have a Happy Healthy Thursday!!!!

Even if you are on the right track, you'll get ran over if you just sit there!

Hi that's right a pound is great good going a loss is a loss is a loss and every one counts.

I am trying to get better at this confusing my body too. I have kind of been doing it before but not specific numbers on certain days just eating heavier two to three days a week then lighter the others.

I gained 8 tenths of a pound this week at TOPS. It seems like I lose good for two weeks then the third week gain. Then I lose two weeks then gain the next one. The good news is the loss's are a lot bigger then the gains that happen so I am still way ahead just can't figure out the gains? So maybe this confusing my body thing might help if I get better at it?

Now after gaining that partial pound on Monday night at TOPS today the scale dropped over a pound again oh well maybe next Monday night will be a losing night again LOL. I feel like a yo yo sometimes emoticon

Have a Great Day everyone emoticon

To confuse your body Jillian says to eat 1200 calories on Mon, Wed, and Fri. then on tues eat 1500, thurs eat 1600, then sat eat 1400, then on sunday eat 1700. She says your body will never figure out what you are up to. I have been working on putting that menu together, but havent really had that much time to do it this week. I don't know why I always spread myself so thin. but I do. I have actually lost another pound this week, yeah me.

I think eating more then my usual amount once in a while helps me.
About once a week I let myself eat what I want but try not to just "pig out". I try to stay in control and not overeat, but I will eat things I don't normally do like regular pizza, something with lots of cheese. (I love cheese!). I may have some ice cream or pie, but not gobs.

Hi, Just wanted to ask you about that confusing your body did it work? I am curious because about three times since January I have stopped losing weight and had to reduce my calories once then the next time had to add calories to lose this time I can't seem to find what I need to do add or subtract them or maybe because I am moving less?? Less exercise that is more housework and other work but not riding my stationary bike as much.

I watched the Biggest Loser last night that gal sure looked different the one who had to leave then when she got there didn't she great Kristi or I think that was her name I mean. She really looked great at the end when giving her speech's about weight loss though I think she is going on to lose more even?


Now to find how to as you say confuse my body this time if that's what does it for weight loss twice it worked and last week at TOPS I only lost 1 pound a lot less then I had been losing each time.


Happy Earth Day everyone and wow we are Four of us now. emoticon

I was able to get some new photos this week end haven't had time to really look at them yet. I love astro photography, I got up at 5 this morning to get pictures of the moon, venus and jupiter. I have a report due on thursday for my photography class, spent the evening READING Astronomy magazine. Didn't realize that the telescope has been around for 400 years. I like Jo am, TIRED. Hitting the sack.
Hope you all have a Happy Healthy Tuesday!

Wow! I am tired!!
I am taking today off!! LOL

My sister and I had a lot of fun this weekend.
My sister lives 200 miles from me and so we only get together 3 or 4 times a year. We both LOVE photography.
She talked me into setting up a booth with her this weekend at the Tulip Festival here in my hometown. We hoped to sell some of our photos!

The weather was very coorperative!!
There was no rain all three days. It only rained for about an hour at about 4am Saturday morning. Then cloudy and cool Saturday, and cool and sunny Sunday.

Lots and lots of people!! My sister and I met lots of people and did even sell some of our photos!!
Mainly we had lots of fun and a great time visiting!!

The only problem now is my tired and sore ankles! Gee I hope if I get more pounds off of this ol' body it will help them out.

My love of reading, at this time of the year, gets pushed back to just reading an hour of two just before going to sleep at night.
I spend most of the day time working in my gardens or taking pictures of them! :-)

hey this is great, and then there were 4. Yeah us.
welcome to our team. We will have great fun chating, (the 4 of Us) I had a great weekend, I got an aticle by Jillian from biggest loser. she said to confuse your body, don't let it know what you are up to. so that is exactly what I am going to try. I ate what ever I darn well wanted this weekend, now tomorrow back to the grindstone. It is amazing how healthy my choices still were. Hope you ladies all have a great week.

Hi Fluttersby, Welcome glad to have you here. We have had the same trouble here but like NEELOJ said we have been trying to liven it up some so glad to see you here and hope you stay to chat.

I am waiting for James Patterson's new book the 8th Target right now and I think there is maybe another new one coming out but in the meantime I have been reading Linda Lael Millers, and also Debbie McComber's not mystery's though,and listening again to some older James Patterson tapes of his books I got to use when walking, and may reread some of his first books again too as mystery's by him are my all time favorites always. Both his sets of Characters too Alex Cross with Nana Mama and others down to Rosie the cat, and the Women's Murder Club.

Have you read all of his books or are you just starting them??

Hi Fluttersby! We are happy to have you join us!!
This team has been pretty dead too and we have been trying to liven it up!
Glad to have a new fan join us.

Tell us what you like to read....

James Patterson is one of my favorite authors! I love mystery and some fantasy.
I also read novels and other things once in a while just for a change of pace.....

Hello everyone.

LadyRose I am so happy to hear you are feeling better. As for me I'm not feeling 100%. I fighting a cold. I also have a ton of things on my mind so I'm sure the stress is not going to make things better. I am going to try and relax this evening.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and that your Monday is off to a good start.

Hello Team.

things are going well for me here in San Diego. No complaints. I haven't been able to read as much as I like, but I still find time to get through a few chapters everyday (that's 15 or 20 JP Chapters... emoticon )

Cindi I hope you are feeling better by now.

I wish everyone a wonderful day.

Dena. I am so sorry things haven't been going so well for you. I know how difficult it is to eat healthy when you are on a budget. The cost of food is ridiculous these day, especially healthy food. It makes no sense to me why it is cheaper to by a bag of chips than a bag of apples. All I can say is hang in there.

As for the fluid weight gain, that can be lost easily once you are able to get back on track. Try not too worry too much about it and also don't worry about checking in with this team we will be here whenever.

Take care & stop by and chat anytime.

Hey everyone, I haven't been on this page in a few days. I haven't been feeling too well. I have been in a lot of pain, and I have swollen up so much I have gained 14lbs in two weeks in just fluid. I haven't been able to do my morning walks in 5 days due to pain. I've had a hard time staying within my cal range. and I have two nutritionists telling me to watch different things. I know i need to be more consistent in keeping up with my teams. I also need to look at the good things. Ive just got tunnel vision right now. it's hard to eat the things they tell me to when you have no money to get it. Boy am I griping about everything today or what. I need an attitude adjustment. Thanks for listening. You guys are great.
