Sounds like a 2fer one this year for Mother's Day, Cat; this week and next! emoticon

I'm trying to hang in there...did some emotional eating over the last couple of days and I'm really feeling the stress of being off my game. Sometimes things just don't go as planned and you have to roll with it. It is what it is. I'll weigh in in the morning and post.

Gold, glad you had a good day and you sold your home! Wow! That and going through your daughter's estate, you must be on an emotional roller coaster this weekend for sure. I'm glad you're happy about the house selling. emoticon

You're always so good about pumping everyone up, Debigene, I just appreciate your cheery attitude more than ever. Enjoy getting your steps in in your leopard print sneekers! emoticon

Hey Carol, I still love looking at your wedding pictures. They never fail to make me smile and lift my mood.

I'll have a short week that'll fly by and then me and Terri drive to San Jose Friday afternoon. It's 14 hours and we'll stop somewhere half way. It'll be fun and will see special friends that I never see or talk to. I'm not much of a phone person and don't keep up that way or with FB.

Okay, going for a strong 4 days next week and then packing for the roadtrip.

Enjoy your week PLOF - all of you!!! emoticon

Happy Sunday PLOF!

Well, I was out of it claiming that today is Mother's Day! We'll do that next week instead! I plan to go visit my mom and dad at the VA cemetery which is quite a ways from me. I don't get there often enough without a car.

I'm waiting on Sam to arrive - he's going to do some yard work, Jillian is coming too. Jill came earlier today with pulled pork for lunch. Yum!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and keep up the great work everyone!

Afternoon friends;

I just wanted to remind you all to post your W/L results and check the current weight listed to be sure I have it right. Thanks.

I really splurged today at Target. I bought a blouse, a pair of sunglasses and another new pair of sneakers (leopard print) I love sneakers !!! After I post this I am going out for a walk and then will come back to feed Dusky and prepare my dinner. Broiled salmon, fresh asparagus, kale slaw and 1/2 a baked potato (left over).

It's been a lovely day so far and hope you each are enjoying the day as well.

Good Sunday morning friends,

Look at you multi-tasking Carol, WTG girl !!! You are truly a blessing to your family hon.

I'm looking forward to getting out again today for another walk somewhere, it's so pretty out I don't want to waste in all indoors. I do however want to do a little fun shopping for me as I still have a Target gift card from my birthday that is burning a hole in my pocket so I want to buy myself a new top.
I am still in shock that I earned a Silver medal again this week as I really thought I blew it all to hell in a hand basket with steps and weight this week. Well the weight was a gain but not nearly as much as I thought I'd binged on so I am surprisingly not upset about the results I ended up last week with. So on to better food choices and more steps to get next week on the move with. I got LOTS of great fresh produce at the Asian market yesterday and am ready to enjoy them through out the coming week.

So let's get this week off to a good start by enjoying the last day of the weekend in ways that make you smile and feel good about yourself. BECAUSE WE ARE WORTH IT !!!!

Have a beautiful day my friends.

Good morning...

Busy day for me today. I'm at the gym this morning trying to spark while riding the bike. Already did the elliptical and have strength training left to do. Not really too easy. Later I have to mow then go to my brothers to do some Yard work. He's on dialysis and not doing too well so my brother and sisters and myself are helping out. I'll get lots of exercise today.

Gotta pedal faster and concentrate on the workout! Later.

Hello friends;

Have had a very productive day so far went to the Asian market got lots of fresh produce and made a kale slaw. Hope it tastes good when it's ready. I took Mya (the dog) and my niece Peyton for a walk, it was slow but I got the steps in. I am going to try and get out and get another walk in but this time by myself.

Cheryl yes you mentioned the car business in an earlier post and I wanted to ask you about it and completely forgot, sorry. So hope that 1st car gets sold so your mom and you can have some peace of mind about it all. I can imagine it took a big chink of change for both those transactions so I hope it gets sold soon. Now about that cake .... it wasn't meant to be I guess so that's a good thing. Hope you too were able to get some steps in.

Cheryl it looks like hpy2be isn't even on SP anymore, I tried to reach out as well and she could not be found according to the message I got ?????

To some of our new members that we can not reach as your pages are set to private. If you want it that way I understand but we can not support and motivate you unless you open it. I know the site can be exhausting to navigate but if you need any help please let us know. We are all very friendly and would love for you to join us.

Hope everyone is having a good day.

Yay for Saturday PLOF!

DG, I think they hid the cake from me. I was busy and when I went prowling around, I saw cake on desks but none to cut a piece of so-no seconds for me. Whew!

You're doing a great job recuperating, Cat! So glad you are not feeling any pain at this stage and are getting stronger by the day. emoticon

Did I mention that we bought a car for my mom and then found a better car for her and bought that one too? Now we're selling the first one. It's a lot of stress for me. Terri is taking the laboring oar on registration, etc. We have two potential buyers looking at the Subaru this weekend and we'll drive the Honda to San Jose next weekend. She knows it's coming (and is paying for it too), but it's difficult for her to do this type of thing being on her own.

Happy for my weekend. We have a funeral, couple of appointments to meet with potential car buyers and then getting those steps in!! Its going to be beautiful here. emoticon emoticon

hpy2be-wanted to read your blog Changes but couldn't get through. You may want it private and I understand. Hope the "changes" are good ones. emoticon

Good morning friends and a happy healthy weekend to you all. Have some fun !!!

I am feeling more like myself this morning with a sense of ease. I have a lot of ideas I want to do today with the main one being to get out and walk somewhere. I also have grocery shopping to do as well. The problem is I can decide if I want to include my friend Linda to join me. She is not a healthy eater at all (she can afford not to be ... well not really I mean who can right) but I do enjoy the company; so I think I will do my shopping alone and then invite her to join me later. That way I can come home put my groceries away eat a little lunch and then go for a walk. Well I'll see how that all works out. Anyway that's my plan. It's a BEAUTIFUL morning so I want to enjoy it while I can. and tomorrow is suppose to be even better !!!

Carol I know you will find the way to get through to your boss ... even if it's the last straw !!!!

Hope everyone has a great start to a weekend ful of all that you want it to be.

TTFN

Good morning..

DG... nice!! I love your hair! You look great.

I'm up early and going in to work a few hours. I tried to talk to my boss yesterday and it didn't really work. I wanted to tell her how I felt about my job position. She just kept saying.. "tell me what I can do to help you have less stress" I didn't get anywhere.

Oh well.. I'm not giving up on it.

Have a great day!!

Carol

Debigene - you look so sophisticated now! Nothing like a new do. I was really glad to hear that they've charged the officers involved, this just has to stop. Protests over the past months have been fundamentally peaceful, it's too bad that it takes a riot to get the kind of action necessary.

I'm doing really well, still get tired but feels like I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I actually can work a full day and get a good amount accomplished. I slept with the boot off for the first time last night but had to take something to help me get to sleep as I was so nervous I'd do something wrong in the middle of the night but ended up having a great night's sleep and it was all good in the a.m. There is no pain anymore and I've been standing for short amounts of time throughout the day this week. I'm a bit off balance though with the boot being so tall, I have to think on that one. Also have been trying to use crutches some in place of the scooter which makes it quicker to get around the house.

My friend Seiko just left and we did a good workout (on the floor). My body actually feels pretty strong except for the ankle with the boot. I think it's just tired poor thing - that boot must weigh 7 or 8 lbs. Sam is coming over on Sunday, Joe has to work. He's going to help me with some yard work and make dinner, I don't know if he's realized it's Mother's Day or not! I'll take what I can get.

Take care! Happy weekend!

Evening friends;

So glad the work week is over today and the results are out on the "news" case here in Baltimore. It looks like justice is on it's way and hopefully the demonstrations still to come this weekend will be peaceful. I had a chance to talk with the volunteer coordinator that has given me a volunteer to train to help out at my desk that as I mentioned before just isn't getting it. So hopefully that might helps matters. I am willing to give her another month of training and if that doesn't work then she will have to place her in another position because as it is she is not a help to me she is just a hindrance. I am hoping next week will be a better week for me and ease up some of the stress that's going on around me. I'm not getting a good feeling about the scale this Sunday and I know my steps have been down. The weather is gonna be good this weekend and I really want to get out and walk so that's my goal.

Cheryl one piece isn't bad, don't let that 2nd one tempt you. Stay strong or just let it happen and then work it off. Your choice !!!

Ok ladies let's get this weekend started !!!

Hey PLOF...happy Friday indeed.

All set for the day. Very happy to walk in the evening yesterday after a piece of rich birthday cake at work. Will try hard to pass on seconds today. It was a huge cake = big slice and we still have half the cake leftover.

This is an obstacle i can overcome today.

Happy FABULOUS FIT Friday friends !!!! TGIF !!!!

Cat I was so thinking about you this morning and low and behold when I came in I see you stopped by. Sorry you didn't have much time to let us know how you are doing with your recovery but I'm sure you are coming along just fine and happy to finally be able to get up and moving a bit. Keep doing all the right things hon and you will be getting your walks in soon. HUGS

If I remember correctly Gold is the longest original member here on PLOF; so that requires her to stay with us !!! I know she's not going anywhere !!!

I fell short on my step goal yesterday so will try harder again today. I'm under a little stress with a trainee at work that's just not getting it, could be something going on with her health so I'm just trying to figure out how to handle it. Makes me binge on sweets tho'

So here we go another day to get it right and stay on track or get back on track ..... so let's do it !!! Stay positive, stay focused and make it happen with a smile on your face.

Hello dear friends;

Gold don't you even think about leaving us for an OWL group (Older Wiser Lesbian), LOL !!! We won't have it !!!! I too am so happy for you to be enjoying your retirement. Even tho' you may not be doing those active things any more at least you have them on your "have done" list !!! That's something to be proud of and of course you will always have the memories !!!

I hope things settle down for you soon Cheryl so you feel more relaxed and can enjoy what you have to do. Sounds like you are still on track pretty much so there's good to be said about that. It must be great to have a partner to share in the challenges of making changes to live a healthier lifestyle. Bravo to both of you !!!

I heard on the news that other states are now joining in on the protest for justice regarding the case here in Baltimore. I just pray where ever they will be will remain peaceful and not turn into anything like we experienced here.
I'm going out to dinner tonight with my co-worker Linda so just want to finish up SPARKING before she arrives.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable peaceful evening whatever you may be doing.

This week's gone wacky on me. Luckily, I'm getting things done even though sometimes it feels like there's too much and I don't want to even begin tackling the list, I do, and manage to stay in the game.

I'm walking at lunch but have not gone to the gym once this week. emoticon Eating has been good choices and a lot of that is because I don't want to sabotage Terri who has been getting her 10,000 steps every day for a month now and making pretty good nutritional choices, too.

I hope work changes in the way you want, Carol.

Gold it sounds like you're enjoying your days and I think that's all that really matters.

Oh yay for Friday eve.

Hugs PLOF!

GOOD MORNING YOU STRONG DEDICATED WOMEN!

I am leaving in a few minutes for breakfast out and a game of cards. Love it. Love retirement. Is there a group for Proud Lesbians over 70. I am having trouble keeping up with you all physically, (Cause I'm lazy) but I'm right with you in the joy department.

I still dream that I'm a long distance runner. Even in my dreams I'm amazed that my hips aren't hurting. Then I'm riding my bike.. oh, how I loved my bike. We did the Black Hills, the San Juan Islands, across Missouri, and the Outer Banks. Now I'm lucky if I make it around our cul-de-sac. (We have a very small cul-de-sac).

I have black finches at my feeder this morning and of course the cardinals. I get just a few yellow finches. And "No" i don't know how to take pictures of them. I wish I did.

Have a great day everyone. Debigene, stay safe, and all the rest of you too.

Good morning friends; what a lovely morning to be thankful for !!!

Carol I hope your boss is understanding and accepting of your request. You go girl, I love a woman who knows what's best for her !!!

I managed to reach over 9K steps last night and know that if I had worked a little harder yesterday at work I could have made it over 10K so I will reach for it today. Looks like a little rain is on it's way here today but for now it's a beautiful sunny morning.

Happy Thursday ladies let's do what we do best, make today as healthy as possible and be a success in all we do. Be thankful for all the goodness in your life and show it by being kind to others as you go about this day. God bless you all my friends.

Good morning ladies. ..

The weather is absolutely beautiful. We couldn't ask for anything better. I got outdoors yesterday and mowed the lawn. It was nice.

Work is work... It seems about the same everyday. I'm thinking about talking to my boss. I think lead work is not my cup of tea. There is going to be an opening that I am more than qualified for and it does not involve supervision I would be working on my own... I would love this. I think someone younger would be suited for what I am doing now.

Have a good day.

Hello friends,

Cheryl I love your attitude !!!

Peaceful protest going on today in Baltimore with a big group of people. So far the media says it is very peaceful, hope it stays that way. I've heard that Friday is suppose to report the findings of the autopsy of the man that died. Either way the results will not be good. I'm not sure what kind of justice the community is expecting, so it will def be a tense day. The end result is a man died in the hands of the police and there is no explanation as to what happened that caused the death. The national guard is still present and the curfew is in effect 10pm - 5am.

On a happier note it was a beautiful day with sunny skies and warm temps. Rain is coming in tomorrow to water nature. I had good food choices and will work on my steps tonight and aim to meet my goal.

Not much more to say but I do hope you all enjoy your evening and that a good night's sleep will come your way to rejuvenate you day tomorrow.

Hey, Gold, so glad you are enjoying retirement. With the way time flies, I'm looking forward to the day I retire. Although I do hope to work part time at one of the sports arenas.

Things are going well and very busy. A couple of used cars crossed our path - my mom needs one to replace hers and we got her a Subaru for a great price. Well yesterday a Honda crossed our path and will be a better car for my mom in the long run. Now we have to sell the Subaru. A little stressful but Terri is very supportive and that helps.

Wishes to you all for a great day! I'm feeling pretty fit today - especially when I tighten my core (suck it in).

Good Hump Day morning friends;

Yes things are quieter this morning, it was the 1st night of the curfew which got off to a rocky start but from what I hear ended quietly. So there is always hope. I live and work less than 5 miles from the city/county line. So the hospital gets a lot of inner city patients but I experienced a very peaceful pleasant day at work yesterday. There was conversation about the whole goings on but it was all about the horror of it all from what I heard. There was no comments that I heard promoting the incidents of the people involved in the destruction. Baltimore really is full of good loving caring people for the most part.

Carol I hope you co-worker that was injured is coming along. That will be a long road for her.

I had a question I wanted to ask the team but my memory falls me this morning so when I remember it I will write it down to ask you all, LOL !!!

Cat how are you doing hon ?

Cheryl thanks for all your encouragement.

Jay and Gold I hope you are enjoying playing cards.

Susan, Brenda, Jill, Dustier and all the rest of you wonderful ladies I do hope you are doing well and still walking the path in your journey to live healthier lives. Stop in and say hello.

Have a beautiful blessed healthy day my friends.

Good morning all. It is a beautiful day in MN. We have the bluest ski, the trees are getting buds on them and green grass all around me. It will hit 68 degrees today and 70 by this weekend. I may plant my peas today.

Debigene, have things quieted down there? I hope so. I saw the news where neighbors were forming protective lines in front of the police to try to stop the rioting.

Carol, those were wonderful pictures. To bad you had to go back to work so soon. I love retirement.

Cat, I hope you are up and around soon. Even with your boot on, it must feel good to be moving.

I am getting better at using my left hand. When I was a very young child I was left handed. I went to a one room country school and they only had one left hand desk and it was occupied, so I had to change hands. Maybe that is why it is getting easier.

Good morning....

DG.. .You are right there are a lot good people in Baltimore. The media actually did some stories on a lot of folks who were taking back their neighborhoods, helping to clean it up, and saying "hey we're not like this....We love our city. Yes... Stop giving all the publicity to the thugs and criminals.... Show the good side.

Well... First day back to work exhausted me. I had to go to bed early last night but I feel good this morning.

Have a great Day!

Carol

Good morning friends and thank you all so much for your kind words and prayers of support for Baltimore. Baltimore is such a poor city for the most part and what happened over the weekend and mainly last night was not the work of protesters it was the work of criminals and haters !!! That is all I can say about them. I haven't seen much news yet this morning but I am sure I will hear all about what took place while I slept thru out the day and tonight's evening news. Again I thank you my friends it really means a lot that you care.

I managed to reach my step goal yesterday and I am aiming to do it everyday this week. Tonight at home might be a little tough as it is my SIL birthday today and she is having cake and ice cream upstairs tonight. I'll go up for a while and maybe a bite of the red velvet cheesecake my bro is making for her. Thankfully cheesecake is not a weakness for me, LOL !!! I will try to get to work a little earlier to walk a little longer.

Hope you day is as healthy as you can make it and that you keep smiling, stay positive and regardless of what the world throws your way BE KIND TO OTHERS !!!!

Good morning...

DG....saying prayers for Baltimore. I have seen it all over the national news and it looks terrible. Stay safe!! It's sadly now the norm to loot and terrorize when people have an incident of this type and it only makes it worse. Unfortunately a lot of innocent people suffer.

Cat.. Sure. Feel free to share the picture on facebook. That is fine!!

Well back to work... YAY. A lot of feelings about the injury that happened over the weekend. Praying for the woman... She lost 4 fingers and they were able to reattach one. Sounds like a combination of many factors that led to the injury....tragic.

Have some good day

Hi friends,

PLEASE pray for Baltimore tonight, right now that may be all that can help this city with the rioting that's going on tonight over this Freddie Gray death. It's all over the news. People are being hurt and businesses looted and set afire. It's awful. I live west of the city in the burbs and feel safe but I work just over the city line.

Really not up to chatting tonight as I am in tuned with the news and monitoring what is going on. I know you understand, so I will check in with you tomorrow.

Hi everyone and Happy miraculous Monday :-)

Great pictures Carol - you both look so happy and relaxed making it official!! Your sister did a beautiful job on the cake. Would love to share a picture to my FB page if that's OK??

Debigene, I'll def want to get back into a weightloss challenge as soon as I can weigh myself. I put on my first big girl pants (ones with zippers) yesterday and they feel about the same or looser than pre-surgery. Tomorrow (week 6) I will be able to take the boot off at night (hooray!!!!) and also to start working up to a stand with full weight as this week goes by. Only two weeks left until I can start taking steps (with boot), and four until the boot comes off?? That's the plan.

My older son Sam moved in with his girlfriend last weekend and both boys started new jobs last week. Sam has been over quite a bit even though they live in Tacoma now quite a ways on the other side of Seattle from me. Traffic is not pretty.

Congratulations on all your fitness efforts - DG, Carol, Cheryl, Susan - you are so motivated (and motivating). Jay good luck with the knee. Gold hope you are coping well with your aches and pains and that winter has ceased it's icy grip. Hi to everyone else and all the new members - looking forward to getting to know you.

Peace, love and go PLOF!!! emoticon

Good morning PLOF!

DG, I'm still interested in the weight loss challenge and have my weight to post this morning. I'm up just a few ounces but feel really good.

It was a busy weekend with walking and then Costco, PCC and Grocery Outlet. Was able to get out in the front yard to plant some flowers in last year's pots that were looking pretty bad.

Very excited for my plan of action this week - got my food for a couple of days and am looking forward to breaking a sweat on the bike tonight (at the gym). Although its going to be one of the best weather days of the week so I may walk the 2 miles to my car instead.

Carol, I love the pics and you two look made for each other. You are a beautiful couple. The cake was really special. Your sister did a wonderful job.

Wishes to you all for a great week.

Good morning ladies....

Getting ready to head to the gym.

I'm going to be enjoying my last day off from work. My boss texted me yesterday... We had a serious injury over the weekend where I work... Not in my area. It was the weekend shift and so serious they cancelled the 3rd shift last night and everyone is meeting at 6m for an all hands meeting. I guess a lady cut some fingers off... They flew her to St. Louis to see if they could be re-attached. Not sure of the details yet but OSHA is involved and I'm on the plant safety committee so I'm sure I will have some involvement in the cause. We've never had anything happen like that before.

Anyway.. I'm praying for her as I was there on the weekends a lot and knew some of the gals on that shift.

Have a great Day!

Carol

Wow so glad it was a perfect day for you and Linda! After 30 years, it's certainly well-deserved.

Great job on your silver medal and getting that scale to move in the right direction, DG! Keep up the good work. emoticon

An excellent weekend so far. Yesterday, cleaned house and then a late afternoon urban walk to get our 10,000 steps in and a lite fish dinner. It was a fun and relaxing day.

We're headed to Seward Park for our walk today and then will do our shopping to get ready for the week.

Wishing you all a great day!

Good morning ladies....

The wedding was absolutely perfect... It was beautiful. It was 75 degrees, bright blue skies and no wind. Today it's cold, dreary and raining. Really it couldn't have gone any better. My sister made the cake... It was beautiful! That is the sister I go to the gym with every Sunday. She is in the group picture as my witness. The other witness is our friend Rick who lost his wife a month ago. She was originally going to be our other witness.

We have been together 30 years and finally could be married in Kansas. It was worth the wait and did not disappoint! Not doing the honeymoon thing... No money left LOL. We will just spend a couple of days together.

I'm taking it easy today. I have a bit of a headache and want to relax. I'm off work tomorrow too! Glad I had the foresight to do that!

Good Sunday morning friends,

I do not see the post I made yesterday ??????? I know I did !!! Well how did the ceremony go Carol? We look forward to hearing from you when the honeymoon is over !!!!

I went to lunch with a friend yesterday and got a little over 4k steps in for the day; so needless to say I was surprised again today to see I got a Silver medal for the week !!! It really was a great start and a successful week for me. The scale showed I know what to do and must keep doing it. The steps are really getting easier to reach goal. I'm very proud of myself and am aiming higher each month. It's a monthly goal for me with my weight and fitness as that works best for me.

Susan so glad the tornado did not venture into your home are and indeed praise God for your friends escape !!! One day of not so good eating will not damage a week of success so don't worry especially since you got so much walking in. Well done hon !!!

Let's all keep the people of Kathmandu in our prayers after such a tragic earthquake and avalanche yesterday.

I should be home most of the day today as I have chores to do, mainly laundry and some cooking so I will keep popping back in.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable beautiful blessed day.

Hello ladies,

Congratulations on your big day Carol and Linda!

I'm just stopping in to say hello. I didn't do so well with the food yesterday, but I did get in a lot of walking. I love sunshine in Houston! Strangely enough, the morning yesterday was stormy and a tornado hit just about 10 miles away. Some of our friends are still without power, but by afternoon, the weather was beautiful and almost 90 degrees.

I'm watching the Grey's Anatomy I've been behind on. Not happy with the last episode!

blessings to you!

Susan

Hello to all the PLOF !!! So nice to see you .

Laura I sent you an email. Please let me know you got it since I provided some helpful tips for you to get your page going.

Susan so glad to see you back hon, I hope your time away included some relaxation and/or fun !!! It is good to know things are calming down for you.

Jay, GREAT to see you !!! it's been a long time since we've heard from you hon.Life sounds so good for you since your move. I hope we hear from your dr visit regarding your concern for the W/L you are experiencing that you feel is not warranted. I will keep you in prayer that it is not something serious. So sorry to hear about the pain you are having with your right knee and do hope you get some relief soon hon. Keep us posted, don't stay away so long, we miss you.

Cheryl you are really bustin' it aren't you girl !!! Woo Hoo to you !!! I hope your new nickname is a sign of lower numbers on the scale for you.

Well tomorrow's the day Carol !!!!

I wanted to get in here earlier this evening so I can started on my steps right after I have a light dinner and do dishes. Work was steady and I am looking forward to the weekend as always. I am going out for lunch with a friend tomorrow that I haven't since for a while so that will be nice. Other than that I don't have any plans for the weekend so chores will be the thing to tend to.

Enjoy the evening friends in all you do.

TGIF PLOF!

Can't concentrate on work until I stop by to say hello.

Woke up early and got on the wii this morning and did 30 min free step while watching an Ellen episode = 2,400 steps and burned 141 calories. I love it when it says I'm a "calorie incenerator." Great way to start the day! Got my tea and water and now am ready for whatever.

thought i would drop by to say hello. been busy what with cards and helping Ralene with the baby. Aly is growing like a weed. she's almost 6 months old and closing in on being the correct weight for a preemie. we love her so.
i went to the dr the other day to get the results of my right knee xrays. he says i have very bad arthritis & if he sent me to an ortho doc he would want to do a knee replacement. i said not again, no way. so i'm going to go on until i can't stand the pain, then we'll do shots & if that doesn't work, guess i'll decide then.
next month i go to eye docs & gi docs. my doctors are worried (and so am I) about my weight loss, as i'm really not trying at all to lose weight, and its coming off. don't get me wrong i like that part, but with no reason for it.

Congratulations to Carol and her partner. i hope you have a beautiful day.

gotta go get ready for cards,
hugs, jay

Good Morning and Fabulous Friday to you all!

Congratulations Carol and Linda! I'm happy for you and looking forward to seeing the pics.

Welcome to our new members. This is a great group. Just the right size to get to know each other with plenty going on.

I have to get to work, but I wanted to stop by and say hello. I was out of town the past two weekends and haven't been on the computer much other than to work in between, but life is getting back to a less hectic level now.

blessings to each of you,

Susan

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Happy FABULOUSLY FIT FRIDAY friends, TGIF !!!

Very windy, sunny and temps @58* today and it's Friday, woo hoo !!! I went over 9k steps last night and I'm hoping to get to 10k today. Food and portion choices have been on target this week, hope I can stay mindful over the weekend too.

Carol we are all on pins and needles for your big event and can't wait to see the pics !!! Are you taking any time away???

I see we have 2 new members and I wanted to welcome them both but I wasn't able to get on their pages. Hope you ladies open your pages up so we can all get to know you, support you, send you goodies, etc. Most of all we hope to see you here !!! Don't be shy do stop by !!! If you need any help navigating SP give us a shout, it can be confusing that's for sure.

Ok team let's go - have a day full of good healthy choices and get those legs and feet moving. Sitting on our butts is not gonna cut it. Just get up and do it !!! Keep smiling and staying positive, share your kindness with those around you and make someone else happy.

Good morning....

Me nervous... Not yet got a lot to do today though. What am I wearing? It's very casual. I am wearing white Capri's with a white long sleeved button up cotton shirt. I have a blue printed vest to wear over that. Linda is wearing similar to that but more blue than white. I will definitely put up some pictures. My boy doggies are wearing blue bow ties and Molly has a yellow sundress. There also will be at least one princess in attendance!

The officiant is a very good friend of ours who is a retired chaplain. He is a widower who was married for 50 years to wonderful woman but honestly is a total closet case and probably has been his whole life. He's of the age that he thought being married was the right thing to do and yet stayed faithful to the end denying how he really felt. He's pretty lonely now. He takes care of our doggies when we need someone and we watch his. He is one of our best friends!

Anyway.. Gotta go. I'm going to the gym this morning with my sister. She took off today to finish 2 wedding cakes so we decided to workout this morning because who knows about this weekend!

Have a great day!

Evening friends;

Meri it is always nice to see you pop in. Such a treat !!!

Cat so glad to hear your recovery is coming along as expected. I also think that you will be pleasantly surprised when you do get on that scale. I also agree the stork sounds like the perfect totem for you right now, LOL !!! Keep doing all the right things hon sounds like you are coming along fine.

Cheryl, what kind of smoothies do you have for dinner? I can't imagine they'd be filling enough for me since I really don't have what most would consider a lunch. But it may be something I'd like to try when the weather is too hot to cook.

Got almost 6000 steps in at work today so still have to work on reaching that goal thru out the evening. I am sure I can do that during the commercials and really want to work hard to get 10k in. Wish me luck. Weather is staying in the 50s for a few days and I don't like that. It should be warmer by now, oh well it will be soon I'm sure. Maybe by then I will be able to get outside for my walking after I put Dusky to bed.

One more day till the weekend. Anyone besides Carol have any plans?

Well got to get to those dishes and Dusky and then get to work on those steps. Hope your evening is pleasant and enjoyable ladies.

Here I am Debigene! I've been trying to read posts regularly to keep up with PLOF happenings. Top news is the upcoming wedding. No matter the weather it's a lovely thing you two are doing Carol and Linda. Who would have imagined, right??

Healing going along on schedule here. Saw the surgeon on Monday and x-rays looked great. Fabulous news is that next week I get to sleep without the boot and will be able to do full weight standing (oops, guess that means I will be able to weigh myself- gulp) several times per day.

All my wonderful caregivers are still coming to help out as preparing meals is still an issue as long as I'm on the knee cart and can only stand on one leg. I think my animal totem right now is a stork!!

Looks like a nice day ahead...hope the same is true for everyone.

I made smoothies for dinner last night and that satisfied us for the evening. Terri had an appt after work so she was later than usual getting home - especially since she stopped at the gym too. emoticon

Today I am busy busy at work and looking forward to finishing off the week strong. emoticon

Thanks for keeping us posted on your wedding plans, Carol. It really sounds very nice. emoticon that's an apple cider toast to you and Linda!

Enjoy your day PLOF!

Good morning...

Well tomorrow it rains all day. Saturday it looks to be mostly sunny and 80. Guess are prayers were answered. Linda is nervous and excited me not so much. I think it'll hit me today and tomorrow as we do the final preparations. Saturday I'm getting a manicure and my hair done. It'll be great. Did I tell you my sister is making our cake. She's been a cake decorator for 20 years (side business) but it could be a full time job as she does cakes almost every weekend. She does beautiful work.. I'll get pictures.

Have a good day... Stay dry DG.

Cheryl... Good to get recognized at work and being appreciated so much. Sounds like a great place to work.

Later

Nice day at work today. It's Staff Appreciation Day and we're going up for ice cream and a raffle later this afternoon. I have a chance of winning Storm bball tickets, Mariner or theater tix. Attorneys just brought around some flowers for each of us. emoticon Ahhhhh and a Starbucks coffee card. And, since, I'm headed to the gym after work and they serve sugar free ice cream at these events, I will indulge moderately and enjoy.

Hope you all have a happy day!

Evening ladies;

I didn't make it to the co-op volunteering tonight. I am still re-cooping from my long weekend and I want to be at my best when I go to volunteer. It's not like it was the only chance I had so I will make it the next Tuesday and really be up for it !!! I had a very good healthy fit day at work and will work on reaching my step goal tonight.

Gold it's hard to believe you have snow going on there today, this just ridiculous !!!

Cheryl I'm counting on that !!!

Have a pleasant evening friends, you are the BEST !!!

Warm sunny weather is right around the corner so I'm reminding myself I want to be sure I'm feeling fit and looking my best for Summer 2015.

Will be with you in spirit, Carol. Your upcoming nuptials have sparked my dreams and it's been fun imagining a special day with Terri. Best wishes to you and Linda!

Good morning...

Had a good day trip yesterday. The flight was great and the speaker was wonderful. The gentlemen I heard was totally blinded when his then 17 year-old son accidently shot him in the face. That was 12 years ago and he spoke of his journey and how it had changed the life of his family and friends as well as his. Good stuff.

Well.. The weather is not going to cooperate with my wedding. It may or may not rain....depends on which station you watch. I think I am going to mow tonight after work....May be my only chance!

Have a great Day!!

Evening friends,

Sorry I couldn't get in here this morning time was just not on my side since I had to go get Dad for our luncheon date. What a great afternoon it was too. Def a place to save for and go for a very special occasion. The salad buffet is more than that they call it the "market place" with all good reason !!! So many different items I've never seen on a salad bar before and very high quality too. I enjoyed cheese that I would not normally eat (full fat !!!) and that was a real treat. The lunch also includes a few hot items on the buffet as well. The waiter asked if we were there for any special occasion and I said yes for my birthday and at the end of the meal he brought the most delcious creme brulee for 2 to share with a light candle and Happy Birthday scripted on the plate in strawberry puree !!! Simply a lovely afternoon shared with my Dad.

As much as I have to say the party is over I am glad as I can not carry on in this fashion. I've eaten too much, drank too much and enjoyed it all way too much !!! But I HATE the bloated way I feel and look, so I am happy to be getting back on track starting now. Just the same it has been a wonderful birthday celebration; closing until next year !!!! I am committed to daily portioned healthy meals and 7500-8000 steps everyday !!! I know I can do it !!!

Cheryl congrats and WTG on that charity walk hon. Great turn out too !!! I have come to love the hunt at the thrift store, they are my new fav !!!

Carol the rain is heading our way tonight.

That's all I got ladies, I'm so full and tired now I'll be heading to bed early tonight in prep for back to work tomorrow. Sweet dreams to all.

Carol, your wedding plans sound magical.

You're a good sport to go for a ride, DG! I have a friend who is into clothes and she'll tell me this is so n so but it gets lost on me. Although she did get me a pair of True Religion jeans at the thrift store for a bargain rate and I love 'em.

We did the Seahawk charity run/walk today and it was so much fun. But crowded with the sold out crowd of 12,000!

Ready for a strong week ahead.

Good morning friends, and ANOTHER beautiful morning it is !!!

Yeah Carol I was thinking of you and Linda this morning and your wedding just being a week away now. I can't wait to see some pics of the whole event. Sounds like it will be such a lovely affair. You both are so very blessed to have each other and such a loving caring group of family and friends.

I went to Leann's last night and just enjoyed the evening with them. They got a new (second hand) SUV and instead of the walk she wanted to take me for a ride in it. The ride was nice and enjoyable but honestly my body would have enjoyed the walk more. I just went along for the ride as cars are just a mode of transportation to me. All those bells and whistles are just a distraction to me, I never could multi-task ... and glad of it too !!! She baked a Key Lime cake for me so it was fun having them sing HB to me and blowing out the candles. We did not eat healthy but I did not over eat. I had 5 pieces of buffalo wings and a salad., oh and of course the cake !!!
Today my bro is taking me to Panera Bread and I will stop at the Asian Market for my weekly produce. And today I will def take a walk outside !!!

That's it for now ladies; hope you all enjoy your day and looking forward to hearing about your trip outdoors Cat. That Jill is so sweet !!!

Good morning....

All is good here.... Getting ready to head to the gym.

The wedding plans are coming along nicely. It is going to be dog friendly and we also will have a princess there. LOL . Savannah the 3 year old asked us if she could wear her princess dress... We said of Course! My little doggie Molly has a new dress to wear and our boy doggies have bow ties. Looks like about 5 furry friends will join us. Lucky will have to be in a kennel... He will get scared and run away.

Jet setter... LOL. well maybe for tomorrow anyway. Short week for me... I'm taking Friday off to prepare. Looks like the weather will hold out...no rain called for now on Saturday!

DG... wow. Sounds like you have some wonderful friends and had a great birthday. I'm gonna check out your picture later when I have time!! Gotta run!

Well it's now afternoon so good day my fine friends.

WOW what a day it was yesterday. So much fun and what a grand celebration. My friend Karen really did it up for me. We had a awesome happy hour with each of us having a huge MonsteRita (just 1) and it lasted us for the entire 3 hours we were there. The free buffet nothing great to speak of but good enough to soak up the alcohol !!! Then we went to the burlesque show. First I'll say that the venue was quite the seedy place, very dark and only one exit which concerned me; but once the show began I forgot all about where I was and soooooo enjoyed the show. It was funny and the ladies were fairly talented with their performances. It wasn't like some strip joint show at all it was tastefully done with just about nudity. The ladies danced their costumes off down to pasties and fancy G-strings. They were all well over 40 years old and most carried their extra weight well. It was def an experience I'm glad I got the chance to enjoy. I didn't get home till 1:30 in the morning and I must admit I'm feeling a little sluggish today. So I am laying low at the house today but will be going over Leann's later this afternoon. We are going to take a walk down by the river near her house and it's a nice walk to and back. It's such another beautiful day with temps in the high 70s so I'll be glad to get out and walk with her and her husband. Won't be making it a late night today tho'.

I posted a pic of my new do on my SP thanks to those who saw it an commented. It is a little shorter than I wanted but my hair grows fast so no big deal. It is the style I wanted and that's more important. My friend Karen said she thought it was quite a fashionable style for me. I've had my hair long for quite a while and was ready for a change but was never really fond of how short hair looked on me, so this is def a new venture for me. I'm very pleased with the look if I must say so myself !!

You go Carol !!! My my a private jet, aren't you the jet setter now LOL !!! Sounds like a great opportunity too, so you must tell us all about it. emoticon

Cheryl what a wonderful thing you are doing today hon. Is this something that your company does on a regular basis? That's just fantastic !!! Sounds like you are well prepared for the day with such a good healthy start. BRAVO !!!

Gold how's your shoulder?

Ok ladies I think I need to go take a little nap to freshen up before I head out for a little more birthday tonight. Enjoy the weekend doing something that makes you happy and healthy emoticon

Carol, what emoticon news. So you'll be flown in a private jet?! So glad things are good at work for you.

We re headed to an elderly woman's home to help revitalize her house so she can stay in it. Part of a day of caring event at work.

Did the Wii this morning and had a filling breakfast to keep us motivated throughout the morning.

Am thrilled for the beautiful weather we're getting this weekend. The sun's already out. emoticon

Enjoy your day - especially you, Debigene!

Good morning....

Up early and headed in to work a few hours. Work is going really really good. Monday Textron is flying 5 of us to another Cessna facility for an open house, to tour the plant and listen to a motivational speaker. I am on the facility safety committee and the speaker is a gentleman who was blinded in some kind of an industrial accident. I feel privileged to be going. It's just a daytrip... Wheels up at noon and wheels down at 5.

DG... hope your birthday celebration went well. Tell us all of the details!!


Have a great Day!

Happy birthday, Debigene! emoticon Have a great day and a wonderful, fun-filled birthday weekend! emoticon

Something is definitely going on with my tracker. I'm going to try it again over the next few days and see what happens. It has a new battery, but I guess you're supposed to wait 60 seconds when replacing and I didn't do that. We'll see.

Weather is going to be fabulous this weekend and I'm looking forward to being outside doing lots of fun stuff and, of course, we bbq rain or shine...it's just funner in the sun.

Have a great weekend PLOF!

Good morning friends, TGIF !!!

Thank you all for the lovely BD wishes and goodies. You are absolutely the BEST Spark friends !!!

I'm ready to get this day going. Got my new haircut and hope to post a pic soon. I always have problems posting new pics as I use google chrome and it takes much longer to get the pic downloaded to my docs in order to pass it on to my SP page. So I need to have plenty of time to do the whole process. Anyway today is not that day maybe Sat or Sun.

WOW Carol that special day is only a week away and you know it will come quickly. It's a good chance the weather report can change by the time it gets here. Have faith and keep praying !!! It will be a celebration regardless tho' and one that you both so truly deserve !!!

And Gold you are just so full of wise words and rhythms, keep them coming our way !!!

Heading into the shower now, got to get pretty my friend is picking me up at 2:30 and I need to give Dusky lots of attention till then.

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS Friday and makes good healthy choices in all you do.

TTFN

Good morning ladies....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEBIGENE!! Have a great day!


4/25 I'll be getting married. The forecast calls for thunderstorms and bad weather. Okay... We planned it for outdoors but we have a contingency plan. I have a tiny house... It'll be crazy if I have to fit 25 people indoors. What have I done.

Loved your verse Gold... Clever!!

Have a great day!

Good beautiful morning friends.

Cat, I just want to say that you show such strength and commitment to making the best decisions for your health that your recovery will be speedy and you will bounce right back to your workout and fitness routine. IF you gained any weight during that period that too will drop as you get back in the swing of your daily life. Hang in there hon and stay positive and you'll get stronger each day.

Carol what is the date of your wedding again?? How is Linda doing? Yes I have a full 4 days full of celebrations in store !!!

Susan thank you for the BD wishes. I do hope you find a job that brings you all the satisfaction you want. I completely understand . Indeed we must be thankful for our employment and we must have faith and be open to where we will be lead to it. Hang in there friend He knows His plan for you.

It's a beautiful morning here and looks like the sun will carry us thru the day and the rain will hold off until tomorrow. I'm looking forward to my haircut today and will try to get a pic of it over the weekend to post. My day will be short at work and I hope to get lots of steps in too. I made it over the 10K mark yesterday, WOO HOO !!! That really stokes me !!!

Ladies let's go about this day sharing our thankfulness with others. We are so blessed in ways that we don't even recognize. Take a moment and take a look around you. Remember to smile and make the healthiest choices you can today in all you do.

My day is not complete unless I SPARK and that includes PLOF most of all. Thank you for being here friends.

Good Morning and Terrific Thursday to each of you!

Happy Birthday Debi!

I really appreciate you that take the time and effort to keep us updated.

Cat, Gold and Linda - each of you are in my prayers for quick healing (Carol, please let Linda know we are thinking of her and praying for a speedy recovery)

I'm off to work. I'm looking for another job because I need to make a bit more and have benefits, but also because I'm really bored with my current work. Thank the Lord, I do have work though.

Blessings to you all,

Susan




I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Good morning ladies...

Hope everyone is well. Sounds like everyone is upbeat and festive. I know I am... The wedding is not far off. It's kept me busy but I'm excited!

Have a good day everyone!!

Hello fellow PLoF!
Debigene, you are on a roll, one positive after another. I think your xxth year will be the best ever! Now don't forget to post your post haircut photo, I want to see it! Hope you get celebrated big time for being the awesome person you are, the party rocks! Wish I could be there.

Praying for Linda's bones, sure seems like with all the money poured into science they would have ways to patch us up as we get older that is simple and fast healing. It all gets so confusing when there are multiple things going on.

Cheryl, I'm 16T pants too. Almost a 14 if I don't mind sucking it in a bit all day. My theory is if the pants are just a tad to tight that and you wear them anyway you slowly grow down into them, over time. lol, sounds good, right? . Right now I'm in size elastic and can't weigh myself so who knows what's going in the weight dept for me.

Gold, can you get voice recognition to type with while you're dealing with your shoulder issue? I smile when I see you checking in. I just realized today that at the beginning of this surgery journey I didn't sign on to my computer once in weeks. Just checked messages on my phone as much as I can remember.

Have a groovy Wednesday. emoticon emoticon

Evening friends, hope you all have had a good healthy day today.

I am super excited that I am getting off at 3pm tomorrow so I can make a 3:30 hair cut appt. YAY !!! I really wanted to get it before my BD to start a new year off with a new do !!! And then the celebrations begins. I love my birthday, can you tell, LOL !!!

Gold so nice that you take a few minutes in your pain to stop in to say hello. You're a gem !!!

Cheryl thank you for the kudos hon. Water is def hard to get in. You just need to find your daily routine to make it happen. I'm so proud of you for your size 16 pants. They way I keep my closet from over flowing is if I buy 2 I get rid of 2, tops, pants, shoes, etc. Someone else can always use them. So glad you found your tracker working better today.

Well dinner is calling me now so I gotta run, so have yourself a pleasant evening ladies.

Good Wednesday morning!

So glad you are getting daily help with your recuperation, Cat. You'll be better than ever in no time.

Yes, Carol, ditto DG's wishes for a good outcome for Linda today. And, Debigene, it seems you are always sharing some good news - that's great about your co-op! And, speaking of good news, I think you're our biggest loser AGAIN!
emoticon emoticon

I feel good, but need to push hard. Been trying to get that water in! Bought a new pair of pants over the weekend in size 16 and very happy with the fit. They were inexpensive and I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of them once they wash, but I'm going to do my best to keep them in good shape for a few months. I bought two pair and wish I had purchased more, but then we need to start talking closet space or the lack thereof.

Something funky happened with my tracker yesterday and it didn't show all my steps, so I added my 45 mins on the elliptical manually. Tracker seems to be working fine this morning.

Wishing you all a great day! Take care.

Good morning friends,

I'm sorry but this darn computer has caused me to run late again, so this will be short.

Find ways that motivate you today, look for those NSV for recognition that you are on track and doing all the right things. Remember the numbers on the scale are not the only sign that you are on your way to living healthy. Stay positive and focused and you will be the success you are aiming for,

Keep smiling ladies and be kind to those around you.

ps ........ Carol I hope things turn out positive for Linda today.

Good morning..

Great news Debigene.. Glad you got into the coop for a reasonable rate. Nice that they actually listened to you made it affordable.

Rainy here too but we need it. We are in a drought and all rain is welcomed.

Ms Linda went to the doctor today. ..her arm is still bothering her from her after storm fall. They saw a shadow on her elbow and think it might be cracked. She sees an orthopedic doctor today. What else could happen.

Have a great day.

Evening friends;

I wanted to share some good news with you that I got last night. Last year I was interested in joining our local co-op but it was way to expensive for me and when I went to one of the meetings I sopke to someone about it. He told me they are doing some restructuring in the next year and would be making some considerations and would get back to me. Well last night I got a call and was invited to join for a $25 fee if I'd be interested in volunteering 2 nights a month !!! Well I said definitely !!! So I will start next Tuesday evening after work and it's will only be an hour to start since I work during the day. So I hope to get a feel for the committee and hopefully find it beneficial for both of us. I'm looking forward to the experience of a co-op as well and the opportunity to make new friends in my neighborhood.

It was a steady day at work and it's still dreary and rainy here. I made good food choices and have steps to work on tonight to reach my goal.

Well guess that's all I have to share for today but I hope your day was healthy and productive. Tomorrow we get to do it all over again !!!
