I started a new chat thread for 2014, Suze!

I ate too much yesterday, but the scales were good to me this morning.

We had a quiet eve and a quiet day. Glad I don't have to go in to work tomorrow. We are on blizzard warning! However, I am going to try to get to Saks Off Fifth by me to see if I can get that outfit at 60 off and I have another coupon too. And this means that I will have to cancel hair appointment on Friday - its a far drive and DH can't be expected to wait in car in sub zero weather and he will walk me to door of salon but other than that he won't cross threshold. :)

You too, Pat! and everyone!

My splurge today was pancakes. I put it in the Nutrition log and it wasn't too bad with 1/2 sugar free syrup and 1/2 regular syrup and no butter. Delish!

Our next meal will be homemade chicken soup. That's it for the day. Plus I will get on the treadmill again!

Happy New Year, 2014!

Happy new Year everyone! emoticon

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Sounds like a nice day. I spent mine packing Christmas stuff. DH was at work. I was going to cook, but we called in pizza, organic healthy for me and meatball for him.

Someone set off fireworks this evening that sounded like a gun! If they do it again, I am calling the police. No fireworks in the city ordinance, but only if they do it again. It scared us all, cats especially.

Thanks, Linda. I believe as far as the job - what's to be will be.
With coupons, I buy really cheap at Coldwater $20 or less. Did my shopping at Saks Off Fifth yesterday. Today we went to Milleridge village, not to eat and bought a Santa ornament and then a big lunch at my favorite French restaurant and bought a bed rest at Bed bath and beyond.
We are staying in tonight. I have some nice wine for me from the East End for later. we were going to take nap this afternoon but ended up drinking two pots of coffee and looking at spark solution

I will pray for you to get that job, Suze!

I love Coldwater Creek, but it can be pricey.

I am being conservative with spending lately. I want new comforters, etc, but only if it is a bargain and in my colors!

Hard to believe it's almost the new year. Went shopping today in the outlets. went to coldwater creek with a coupon that did not say outlet excluded and this beastly woman said it was only for the store nearest me - NOT! We were not happy. DH found a work bag for me and when it was rung up, it was 30% less. We both saw an outfit I loved but I cannot rationalize the price!! I find I don't have any black suits (skirts) I always have had black suits. I have submitted an application for a job at an organization (non profit) that I have done significant work for on a local, state and national level. In fact I have done for free for them what they are looking for so let's see what happens

Yes, me too, Suze! It has been a good year, a year of reflection and figuring things out. A year of getting healthier, I am not there yet, but so much better than this time last year!

I can't believe it is almost 2014! emoticon Looking forward to it!

It's pouring here today. Catching up on things. So glad I don't have to go to work tomorrow and have another week off! Not really active - feel slightly guilty but need it. Made a stew for dinner and fresh corn bread. DH has been discovering cookies and baking so we are up to our ears, hope the kids will take some off our hands later.
Trying to finish off the year strong

Suze, I am thinking about Overstock.com. I have spent a lot of time looking online. It is harder when you want specific colors!

Cathy, good luck with the makeup.

Linda, we bought a down comforter two years ago on overstock.com and it was excellent. we had shopped around and for the price it was the best quality. Lunch was lovely as my friend also has issues with her health. Like she says look at us and we look "normal" but we have significant disabilities. And we discussed how we know sugar is bad for us but it's so hard. Since I am off we'll meet locally for coffee next Friday.
After picked up Dh and bought him sweeper (ours broke) and then bed bath n beyond. Tomorrow is acupuncture and the Savers Thrift store is just a few miles away!

Great! Glad to hear it, Suze!

We had a nice day too, had ribeye steaks for our special Christmas dinner. I overate, so won't get on the scales for a few days! I did my treadmill yesterday and today.

I am hitting the sales today.

Have a great week!
Linda

Glad you had a little snow Diane. I was grateful for the warmth. Linda, it's awesome getting out. I do go to work everyday but there are only two women I really talk to. There is a third who just joined and I told her we will have lunch in the New Year. And I am having lunch with someone I met at library ages ago. We went to tea in May! I see her at church but we haven't been since then either. Today was peaceful, a real change from the last few years

Sorry girls for taking so long to get in touch. Haven't been on SPARK lately. I recently went to Northern CA to visit my mom and sister. My sister is having a difficult time as a caregiver to my mom. She's been doing this for 15 yrs. My mom is 96 1/2 yrs old and my sister who is caring for her is 76. So I took the Amtrak and stayed a week to ease some of this for her. My mom cries a lot now and forgetful. Yet, she is still living on her own! She keeps a tidy home and dresses herself so I guess can't ask for more than that. Anyhow, on a positive note we had SNOW! It was so pretty. My sister woke me up at 2 a.m. when it started because I wanted to see the first snow of the year. Doesn't snow in SoCal in my town so it was a treat for me. Unfortunately I gained 7 lbs when I stepped on the scale this morning! Aargh! The reason is the season; all these yummy goodies out there. Well, I did my walk and drank lots of water today. Gonna get that scale to move DOWN again. Take care all.

Anything worthwhile takes effort..never give up.

Sounds nice. Getting out is good for you. I go to Chamber of Commerce meetings and church. Also I volunteer for a food pantry, but that is all computer work and I see them very little.
I am going to a conference on Jan 9 through 11 which is here in Austin. Have not found anyone to say they will go with me! I am going anyway.

Linda that really hurts! Verbal abuse takes its toll. Don't know what you can do. Must be really hard on your DH too. Will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
I have no real family - cuz in TX in Goliad (haven't seen in decades!) and Kingston, Ja; and Toronto. Don't speak to brother. and my i.l.'s DRINK and are bigots so we stick to us
Record warmth here and rainy.
Making a gingerbread house. SS coming for Sunday dinner as usual and I have little ornaments for him and his g.f. for their first mini tree. Remember being that young and hopeful?

BIL has moved back to their home with his "girlfriend", living there for free as a temporary arrangement. BIL is living off them and his girlfriend. The in-laws even pay his child support for him! Yesterday he was supposed to come to see us and visit. He never showed up until we were about to leave and when he did he was abusive to my MIL and had been drinking all day. They have to quit helping him. I don't know when they will wake up to that!!!!

Other than that, they gave us a very nice Christmas gift and we enjoyed a nice meal and the day until BIL arrived. Then we left. We don't think that he would get physically violent with them, it was verbal abuse. Still abuse though! DH parents are 79 and 85. She is in a cast from foot surgery and cannot drive, he is legally blind and cannot hear. They need to sell their home out in the country and move to a retirement place where they will be comfortable. Sorry for the rant. I have no family to speak of and love my in-laws. We are worried about them.

Great news on the computer graphics. Nieces came back and finished scrapbook. 'They had never done one and I am awed. It was beautiful, and witty. Shocked at how much they remembered of what we did. I am beyond exhausted.
Good luck with IL's. It's hard.

Keep it up Suze! ... congratulations on having a vacation.

DH took time off but we did not do anything, just organized around the house.

His sister is sick so won't be at in-laws today. We just found out as we are about to leave!

I am praying that we can keep everything positive. They won't decide on any options to be more comfortable in their elderly years, so we have given up on trying to help in that area. AND BIL is back in town, still alcoholic and still bleeding them for money.

Ah, such is life, I guess.

I think I can generate some extra income doing computer graphics. I did a job for a company clear across the state yesterday. Not a lot of money, but everything is a step toward success. So I guess I will get busy and do that! Besides, I love it!

You do keep the topics interesting! I think lots of us lurk and don't participate. Like this thread. It's not just 4 or 5 of us. I refuse to believe that. And we are growing. Dunno.
I am on VACATION! Can you tell I am ESTATIC. I haven't had two weeks off in years. And I have kept little weight loss off.
DH came in to city with me today and we had Japanese lunch, lovely and healthy. We couldn't see the windows or do the holiday fair as I was walking so poorly but I am close to 10,000 steps today.
My plan for the next two weeks is to keep it up. Elves again tomorrow.

You know, I start a new thread on this team and no one replies. I start the same thread on another team that I am not the leader of and get LOTS of replies.
What can we do to kick start this team?
Could it be because I have not lost a lot of weight that people aren't too interested??? I try to keep the subjects interesting.

Suze, I hope your mobility issue improves. That sounds like a nice day today.

DH and I had our vehicles refinanced this morning to lower our monthly bills and then went to Starbucks before he headed off to work. It was nice to have that early morning time with him.

I could not sleep well last night so I came back home. Want to go to Michaels for a craft I have in mind, to see if they have the materials, but came home instead. I feel really tired. I have successfully avoided most sugar, but not all this month.

Sounds lovely. We have elves back on Sat. High point of my social life this year. DH coming into work with me tomorrow for my half day and we will go out for Japanese lunch and try a little to see things. I can't really walk. One of the first times we realized I had a prob was the same event like five years back. Still fighting though

Busy this week! You would think I would get things done since I am home, but time gets away. I am still busy, just not working. Today I am going to a ribbon cutting, taking food to food pantry, eating lunch with a group, going to dr. to get scrip refill, vacuuming, shopping, etc. It will take all day.
Not complaining though! I love my life now.

It is good that they are helping you! Here's to vacations!

Our weather is pleasant, high 60s with a front coming Saturday night. It won't be as cold as the last front. Texas weather: we say, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, hang around, it will change!"

Have a great day.

Snow and ice again today. I went in when I shouldn't have. There really is nothing but someone had to literally walk me into the building. I left half day and a security guard had to walk me into Grand Central. Frustrating. Hoping no ice tomorrow as I only have 2.5 days to go to vacation. And my weight is holding!

Shopped for in-laws yesterday. I went to World Market and put together a big basket of goodies they can't get out in the country. Goodness knows they don't need anything! ... FIL cannot see or hear and MIL is hard to shop for. She only wants the BEST!
We are spending Saturday there because my SIL and family will be there too.

Next week we will shop for each other and have a quiet Christmas alone. Friends will come over Christmas eve.

I am happy for you, Suze!

We don't even know what we are doing for Christmas. DH is not excited about visiting his relatives, but we will on Christmas day. 3.5 hours round trip, but we don't spend the night. I am putting together a gift basket for everyone to share.

Just got off the treadmill. I have pretty much given up on not eating sugar for December. I am keeping it small however.

Teens are funny. So glad that's over not only for me but the ss's. DH's birthday today. Kids were over with their gf's. Had a lovely dinner and everyone is so happy that this year is different. First time he hasn't been out of it or in jail. We are grateful

I have not done cards... might not get that done this year.

Our parade was fun. We had some teenage girls with us, who disappeared for a while (we were worried) and then reappeared with ... teenage boys! So they all rode back to the church with us in the back of the truck. We waited for the parents to pick them up. They kept saying, "my mom will be here in a couple of minutes." We made them stay with us until all parents showed. They are good kids though.

Tomorrow is our Christmas program at church, have to be there early.

We are snowy today. BIL practically had to carry me up and down his two stairs. Exhausted and weak. We picked up his family pictures, thought there was one box but there are three! So lots of scanning and sorting. Went to dentist and acupuncture. Running late on cards too. Looking forward to a peaceful evening.

We go round and round talking every Saturday morning. I guess because DH is so busy during the week we don't get to talk much.
Thinking of opening a business, but I am not sure I could run it with my health issues. Would be nice, though!

I know the feeling, seems like I have been doing it all this year. Got my cold back again. Last night we got the tree and takeout dinner with the kids. They stayed till 9:30 which is way past my bedtime. so I have had 12 hours sleep in 2 days which is so not enough! Fell this morning in Penn Station. Lovely strong man picked me right up. Lucky! Picking up more work and working like a maniac and truly enjoying it

I lose and gain the same 2 lb. every week. I had lost 2 and this morning it is back. I am not eating sugar and I think it is because I ate too much bread yesterday! I ate bread because I wanted sugar, big mistake. All the fruit did not satisfy.
I am still going for it!

Well staying at home despite the stepper the weight went back up a bit but I am confident its going down. Lucked out today no black ice as forecast. Met my agent for a lovely lunch - salad with beets, seared pan scallops with black faro and coffee, yum and in range. He's a great guy and I loved seeing him again. Went back to the office and got more work! And was also told they are going to take care of me. Really nice day. Dropped DH off for his appointment and am going to do stepper and work on Christmas cards. Found out that a guy who has been hassling me and a friend at work was accessing her email (which means our correspondence) and she's taken it to the head of security - Karma!
As to the spectral leg as I refer to it, my toe and foot flops. I have a diagnosis but it's a default diagnosis which they admit when they don't know what to call it that's what they call it. I am not giving it power and fighting as hard as I can.

Much of the country is under snow and ice. Our part of the world has been the coldest for the earliest time in December and the longest. This Saturday it is supposed to be in the low 60s which is our normal.

I have been walking on the treadmill every day for at least 30 minutes.

Yesterday I ate healthy at each event. I did not have any sugar. I feel better because of it!

Suze, did we ever ask why you have to wear a brace? I hope you make it OK.

Have a great day, everyone!

I lost weight too. I am excited. stayed home today due to my fear of the snow but was careful and did the stepper. Still not the number of steps I need. Tomorrow I have lunch with my agent. Last few years it's been dinner at Morton's Steak with a whole crew (the guys I work with IT) Can't stand steak and I had to cab it home, got home really late so I am deeply grateful for lunch. Just the two of us, by the office. I know I will have a green salad, salmon or scallops. Cause of snow and ice will have to wear my clumpy timberland boy boots, brace under pans. It will be nice

Sounds good, Suze! Family problems are the worst. We have them.

I have actually lost weight! I hope it is not a fluke.

At the luncheon, I will eat only healthy, even if it is just salad. Then come home and have a healthy meal. Tonight I am going to not eat any dessert and eat my dinner before attending.

Linda, glad you are inspired. Great news on the weight. Did you see the article on the start page today? What you really gain with breaks in the holidays. Made a lot of sense for me. Despite the weekend I held my weight loss! "Elves" were amazing and exhausting. I am still recovering! Will post pics. And we are not done, they have to come back. We are doing scrapbook of all their times with us. It will be a gift to their parents. Rest of family thinks we are lowlife so this will be fun. We are never included Christmas Day (nor would I go) but you know the girls will be showing everyone :)

No sugar today! It is all around me, but I am being strong!!!! emoticon
Lost a pound.

Tomorrow is not one but two parties, a luncheon and a dinner. I am going to eat only healthy at the luncheon and eat BEFORE the party and eat nothing there unless they have fruit and veggies. White elephants for both, I have them wrapped and ready!

Saturday is a parade! Woo Hoo!

I have been having back pain, but doing stretches and walking on the treadmill.

Well, on the sneakers... I never thought of it until that video! I got a great deal.

Went to Salvation Army and found a cute jacket, kind of a dark purple/burgundy. I can wear it with leggings or skinny pants.

I will try to make a vest soon. I have had the pattern and material for a while, but can't seem to get motivated to make it.

Yes, we have dieticians, but not that type.

I purchased some converse style shoes yesterday! One is lime green, one is blue and one is black with pink lacing and different colored eyelets! Funky and cute! I have some slim black pants I can wear with them and they will go with jeans of course. Dh liked them too. He said, "We don't want to dress like and old man and old lady, and there are plenty out there!" LOL

Those ladies in the video on the thread "Don't Dress Your Age" really inspired me. As I have aged I have cared less and less what people think, like we did as teenagers!

Suze, Some days I feel like I look old and other days I feel like I look younger. It happens. I remember my mother saying to me, "I look in the mirror and say 'Who is that old woman?'" She did not feel inside like her outside looked. I can relate...

I must find what I am doing wrong. I just don't lose weight. I cannot find a renal dietician in this area. I need a diet that is good for the kidneys while also taking into consideration diabetes and adrenal dysfunction. However, I will continue to fight the good fight and try what I know.

Ma took Vitamin E and a multi. Gran took nothing. They always looked younger than their age. Me I take tons and am getting old looking but I do have chronic stuff going on.
Fell today in the station on the way home. Seem to be OK but we decided no gym for me tonight. I see this as part of the sabotage body thing. BIG meeting tomorrow.
This will not stop me

Must be nice. I quit taking vitamins... except for a low dose multiple B vitamin. I have found out a lot of things about kidney function in the last year.

Have a great day today everyone and got after it!

I'm HERE..don't forget me! I don't often post but trying. I like the new December challenge and plan on staying on tract. Don't know what happened but I gained a couple of pounds. Wellllllllll, what do I mean? I DO know what happened. Not eating right. Gonna work harder this month. Tuesday I am going to my mom and sister's home in Northern CA. by Amtrak. Would you believe my mom is 96? I hope I have her longevity. She's amazing! Enjoy your Sunday all.

Nice! We are almost through with Christmas decorating. I had to buy garland for over our entertainment center. What we had was very brittle from being stored in the hot attic. Prices are up since last I purchased it (4 or 5 years ago???)

Gas is down here. Thank goodness something is down in price!

Have a great Sunday. Enjoy the elves, Suze!

Boldly - definitely. Well we went to Home Depot yesterday and it was quiet. Acupuncture and library today. Tomorrow we will brave dollar store and Michaels. Kids and gfs came for dinner last night and it was really lovely. They are adults. We laughed, had conversations. What a difference from our past. Today up in attic getting down holiday stuff and getting ready for Elves next weekend

We had a lovely Thanksgiving near Houston with my nephew, his wife, great nephew and his wife's parents. The parents are caterers and they cooked, delicious! Poor wife had ear surgery just the day before. She seemed OK but was taking pain pills.
5 year old entertained us!

Those women inspired me! I might start wearing converse tennis shoes. I can no longer wear heels. I kinda' have a style, but will get more into it now! I am going boldly into my autumn and winter years!

Linda just checked out thread yes same. Great minds think alike. I am friends with the real Estee Lauder's personal assistant who is into her 90's, admits to 80's. Wears Pucci leggings, nail polish coordinates to holidays, has the most fabulous style and does what she terms "meals on heels"
I have been working from home this week and in a way it's more intense than being in the office. Longer hours. Then Monday night took DH to his "appointment" It's being switched to Wednesdays. Tuesday realtor came over in the day - news is not good, took DH to doctor and then went out at night and made pumpkin floral arrangement. Started to cook last night and print out pics for the elves workshop which is delayed till next Sunday and worked on other project which is a book for SS's based on letter FIL sent with family history. I am going to expand it and hopefully get old pictures from SIL. It's my gift to them for Christmas. Which is coming too fast. I try not to focus on commercial aspect but it's hard and time is short. Happy Thanksgiving all!

Well, we are in the 20's. I am so grateful that I did not have to stand on that platform today. That's the upside of working from home - downside my pattern goes out the door and I have only walked 1000 steps today. Will try to get on stepper and do some more. Got all sorts of lovely reads out of library and no train ride to get in reading time.

Suze, too bad we live in a rich country and there are homeless in every city. Our church is going to put stockings together with socks, fruit, scarves, etc and give them to homeless people as we see them. I am looking forward to that.

We had a nice feast at church yesterday. Must have been 400 people. It went really smoothly and we enjoyed the fellowship as well.

Have a wonderful week and Thanksgiving!

Down in the 20s now. We have woods behind us and have seen tents. We feel badly if people are sleeping there. SS came for dinner with his gf. Had a really nice time. Younger SS may have broken his ankle. Working from home so will be able to sleep and am already up past normal bedtime! Did a lot of cleaning out today. It's never ending

I had some great sleep last night and now have a full stomach from our church Thanksgiving celebration.
Life is good.
There are still those here in our area however, that got flooded out and have no home. It is really cold, so I could not help but think of them last night. It must be difficult. They have a place to sleep, but I am sure life is very stressful for them at the moment.

I have chrome on my computer. I might start using it since I now have no add-ons with Explorer. Sparkpeople has become brutal with the pop-ups.
I'm not leaving, though.

Wow, we are warmer than you - 43 but it's supposed to go down further tonight. Ran around today and got lots done but achy. Working from home this week so I'll get rest. flip side I won't do half the walking I normally do.
I need to upgrade to 11 also but was thinking of going with chrome or firefox

Fixed the problem. I had to take all add-ons off. This happened when I updated my Explorer to 11.
Working fine now, but I miss some of the add-ons...
Anyway, COLD here, 35 degrees.
We are going to see the new Thor in 3D later. Would see new Hunger Games, but don't like to sit with crowds.

Had to turn off pop up blocker and allow cookies to get Sparkpeople to work. That's annoying! This only happened after I updated Windows 7.

Having problems with internet explorer. Any suggestions?

Other than that, plugging along just fine.
