I have been doing pretty good. I usually track my calories but I decided with all the activities going on, I would just take extra care to not overeat and keep sweets to a minimum. It is really hard to track when you don't know what the exact ingredients are and it take so much time to log when you take small amounts of lots of items. Back to tracking today.

Bizi- too funny TMI- as they say that must have been a load off your mind! ...wait who says that!

I'm cutting myself some slack for the 3 weeks while DS is home and holidays are here - that being said MOD is working very well. Actually the last drink I had was last week and it was that 1 glass of wine .. don't remember which day so not keeping track is better but being present and making choices that are good in each instant.

My DS came with us to see his Aunt- very emotional time. 2 steps forward and 1 back. Somehow even though he handled the visit beautifully it was tough

ok- off in snow brr for a walk/ jog/wog/scoot run- whatever I can mange... emoticon
and then time to go see the Grandpapas...

Hey Bizi - I have found this time round the weight is not coming off as fast even though I'm at about 106 days AF. I have been using food as my replacement 'go to' when dealing with tough emotional stuff. That's my goal for 2018 - until then - giving myself a bit of a pass...

Still working out consistently and no issues with being AF (it's barely a thought in my head - the cravings are pretty much gone despite it being all around me over the holiday socials).

stuck at 179 this week. I thought by not drinking I would lose more weight. Hate counting calories....just need to cut back on portion sizes. It will be almost impossible to diet at the holidays...out of town with our families. Will try to do low carb.

AF for days now, not sure how many days, though. I'm grateful for this team and the freedom we have to discuss this. Hugs, Bella

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.

altho I anticipate being AF soon, my weight has been gradually going down despite being MOD
mainly due to not overeating and keeping control of total calories.
Not looking forward to any weight explosion that may follow an AF streak.

have to try to be very controlled over Xmas

Cheers Richard

mood is good, no real picking, no real urges to drink, losing 6 pounds so far, trying to not get stressed over the holidays.
Life is good.
zyprexa 2.5mg has not increased my weight or cravings.
I believe the naltrexone is helping with cravings...ie doing its job!

Edited to say that my parents drink a lot! so this will be a challenge. I used to guzzle drambuie....
I wasted a lot of money drinking. I should use some calculator to see what I am saving!

Bizi- emoticon I think the sparkling waters might be a good idea? You can only do so much with stubborn people. My Dad is too - only in a passive aggressive way..

Sometimes I wonder if holidays can be hard if-
we see family we don't often see and might not want to but do only because of some outside expectation (obligation)
and do things again under that social norm. The obligatory cards/decorations. They are not for everybody and that is ok. OR sometimes it can all be done in a way that reflects YOU instead of the consumerism model.

As it is the end of the year I like to just think of it being a time of kindness
and that begins by being kind to ourselves (ELVES) lol
-and I love the time I get to see family and friends

I like being able to come to this team-because-
emoticon Donna- emoticon WondaWoman! YOU came to mind Wed. eve when I went out with my sis B. after seeing our sisK. whho is in Hospital and had her first round of ECT. B. took me out for dinner. I ordered a sparkling water. She ordered a malbec. It smelled so good!
She said oh go ahead- I am buying.. and I thought but the experiment.. all the folks with the long streaks... changing my life..improving???... and then I thought wait 1 glass of wine? One and done? and sharing with my sis... and I had 1
Yup 1 and had dinner. It was early enough to buy more. I did not even want to. I went to bed. Next day- no urges.

Anyhow- to be honest IF I had stuck with the no booze streak I honestly think it would have made me crazy!
~So one and done and 2 will do and if at a party maybe 3 if it is not me driving home from that party.~
Not just for holidaze but a lifestyle.

Sister K is getting her second session of ECT. right now
DH is driving DS home and I am having a cup of coffee..
Happy Friday everybody - make it a fantastic one! emoticon

Getting thru the holidays;
The holidays are a challenge to me. I have a lot of anxiety during this time.
WE drive 2 days to Indy spend a couple of days there before we have christmas eve dinner with hubbys mom and brother. Then head up north to my folks house for christmas day. hubby will hitch a ride from one of my sisters back to indy and I will stay there for 4 more days and then drive back to his moms house before new years eve.
There will be a chaos mess at his moms house and I get very stressed out there. So I gave myself permission to stay at my folks house.(although they drink too much and that will be a big trigger for me) I choose them over my mother in laws.

Jeff can deal with the chaos at his moms.
She would rather spend time with jeff alone I believe. I think she thinks I interfere, try to boss her around. I wish she would move to an assisted living situation but she refuses. She is very frail and elderly and has fallen once. Some how she still drives and has recently been hospitalized and rehab for a couple of weeks and now uses a walker. I spoke with her other son and asked him about laundry. She refuses to use a laundry service or have an aide come to help her. She doesn't want him to do her laundry either. She can't go in the basement where her washer and dryer are...so who is going to do her laundry?????
I love her and she is very stubborn.

I am going to try to not drink over the holidays...must come up with an action plan. I could drink O'douls(non alcoholic beer) but why drink extra calories when I could just make tea? and use stevia to sweeten???
Save money and something warm to drink at my parents chilly house.
I used to have to run hot water over my feet to warm them up before going to bed.

I have a few more christmas cards to send and need to get my mother something else.
anyway.
The holidays are hard.

Today was a splurge day, food wise.
lunch:
mousaka, egg plant, potatoes and tomatoes, olive oil spices...yummy, my favorite! (I showed restraint and brought half home) and a bowl of roasted veggie/potato soup.
Dinner:
WE shared a large order of ribs, I had 4 thai ribs, (jeff had 5 ribs) and a side of broccoli, some thai sugar beans and some salad.
very filling! oh and I forgot....sweet potato/pecan/bread pudding for desert, we shared.
The meal was fantastic!!!!
Our bill was only $28 plus a $6 tip and we still have money left on the gift card that I got today from a client. ya!

I only drank coffee and water today.

Hi all!

Had an Af day yesterday. Talked to psych. Shes going to give me meds in Jan to start the week before Af.
Talked with hubby, Really opened up, I come from a family of addicts, alcoholics. I'm one! Sad about it!..

Been shopping online, tired now!

I was on a medication, with a side affect of weight gain. Doc said I can stop taking it. I,ve cleaned up my eating, am walking, I did this before, I can do this again!
Spark will help!

Great job on resisting bizi

Awesome on your AF streak Helene!

Cherie - I am glad you and your husband are opening up communications. I am sure he just wants the best for you.

I really want to do better with AF days. I find that after one night of having a few drinks, it rolls into another then maybe another. I have two more parties and I will try to be AF for all the other days and just MOD for the parties.

Had a strong urge to drink last night (screamed in my head " I want a drink") as I was overwhelmed with paper work.
Usually I drink when I do paperwork. I resisted though!
sigh
Was able to finish making a deposit, jeff dropped it off at the bank for me.
I decided to try to take a bath, I was really tired/achey ...discovered that I was not a bath person, had used some epsom salts. The water was hot enough but the tub was too small.
I will stick with my infrequent showers. Which I love when I finally get in there!
Woke up early this morning due to a coughing spell left over from my cold.
I guess I should take something before leaving. I don't have to leave the house for an hour or so...should have gone back to bed but I woke jeff up coughing and did not want to bother him in case I would start coughing again.
So I am starting my 2nd cup of coffee.
yawn....
blah blah blah

my bowl of pop corn has 210 calories, for some reason I thought it had 100.
oh well
This evening I also ate 2 gummy worms and a small candy bar.
Had lemon pepper talapia fish and steamed cauliflower for dinner.
lunch was a big shrimp salad with lots of add ons.
I think it was very fattening.
tomorrow is another day.

Hi all!

Glad to here you r doing good Bizi!

My AF will start on Jan 15th, planning on staying Af for quite a while. Right now it will be till Valentines day, then back to AF. If I don't , I will lose my husband. He said hes not going to live with me drinking almost daily, sneakin, he doesn't trust me anymore, Says the booze was coming before him.
I am an alcoholic, I can't go mod. I am so sad that I have this problem. Everyone in my family are genetically disposed to addictions. My whole life , drinking has always been a part of it. I can social drink, but then it triggers me to buying more and sneaking it in the house.

I did want to use NY to quit drinking. My first goal is to stay AF from jan15th to Valentines day. Then back to AF again.

Was up in Mich to see my kids. We just drank in the evening. Last nite was 2 glasses of white wine with dinner. Today AF.

We opened up communications this weekend. It was hard. he wasn't acting loving all weekend cause he was so upset with me.

I'm hoping to Join Helenes group

Thx for you all. Comments....

I,m Cherie, Been with sparker for 3 yrs, I like that I'm losing it slowly! Its a lifestyle!

Bizi – now that is coming prepared to a party! Congrats on down 6 pounds.

Richard – I am not going to be AF this month but I think I will try for January. I have tried a couple of times this year to go AF for a month and both times, I only made it 3 weeks emoticon

Em – I don’t know much about vegan but I have never hear about vegan cheese, is this made out of nuts or something?

Didn’t do great this weekend but back on track now. Doesn’t help that my treadmill is not working and I haven’t got the repairman called yet. I guess I should do that today.

Bizi, great to hear you sound so clear and upbeat!

Em, good luck on the AF and vegan streaks!

Richard, I won't be completely AF for the holidays, but I plan on being AF most and MOD some days.

Slipped off my plan a little bit...bought myself some Moose Munch for my stocking and got into the package the day I bought it!!! So silly. Threw the remnants away yesterday.

DD turns 19 tomorrow, then my man's sister arrives from England Wednesday, so much to do today. But off to the gym first!

Richard- I decided to be AFfor the holidays-
It is too emotional a time for me right now- both good and bad and I just want to be grounded-stable and have a handle on things so AF will help.

I'm going for a 101 day streak. 12/13/17-3/23/18. I'm mod today and tomorrow and then 101 days no booze. It will be interesting. Have not had that long a streak for years! And I am also choosing that so I can get to my health and weight loss goals.

Cleaning today. Got the fridge to do..hate that job! I got this great vegan cheese book and can't wait to make the recipes.

I am shooting for 100% vegan in 2018

Thanks Richard!
tomorrow will be 2 weeks AF!

The christmas party this tuesday was canceled due to the host's being ill.
They said they will reschedule the party.

Jeff and I put up the christmas tree the middle section of lights were off and we could not understand why. We decided that the little 4 foot tree gave us 17 years so it was time for a new one.
So we went to several places and decided on a 5 foot tree, it was a display model. So we lugged it back home to find that the old trees lights were mysteriously all on! Well we decided to keep the new tree and put it up and decorated it and put the little tree on the dining room table and decorated that as well...all white lights. So pretty. We listened to christmas music while decorating, since it was a bigger tree jeff went up into the attic and pulled down the rest of the christmas decorations boxes and we used ones from years gone by some 20 years! It was fun going thru the boxes.

Had a good healthy dinner of a piece of cheese, salmon and mixed veggies.
Just a little hungry tonight but will drink a big glass of water while I take my nite meds.
Guess I am trying to shrink my stomach.

While listening to some blue grass music, I actually sat and read part of the sunday paper: stories about americans doing great things for this country. USA today wrote this supplement. It was very inspiring! I read the whole thing. I can't remember the last time I sat and read something. It took me about an hour.

Sent some christmas cards today, finished organizing my gift cards and such. Awaiting hickory farms gift boxes, they are late in being delivered. I am giving them as partial gifts to my family members.

Ordered tickets for the new years eve bash in a little town called franklin south of Indy. My twin and I usually spend our birthdays together. Our friends want to go as well. Even my brother in law wants to go with us.
It should be fun!

Oh ya, I Took a broom to the den floor and swept up cat hair. Did a load of laundry.

Supposed to get down into the upper 30's again tonight, burr!

Am seeing Robin my therapist, tomorrow morning.
Am feeling pretty happy today. Don't want to jinx myself but I am feeling pretty stable.
It has been along time coming.

I survived the christmas party!
I came prepared.
Purse with makings for tea including cup and stevia to sweeten the tea and gum in case I needed to eat/chew something sweet.
At 6;30 I was hungry so Before going there I ate a slice of cheddar cheese and a handful of smoked almonds,
At the party This is what I ate:
a bowl of smoked cod chowder(like potato soup)
3 small slices of cheese and 2 small crackers.
small orange, luscious pear, one small bite of just fair chocolate moose...
(I don't know how to spell it)
came home at 10;30 and ate a small bag of pop corn.
I came in 3rd for the ugly christmas sweater contest.
LOL
and the best part: I knew almost every one there so not much social anxiety!!! We have on e more gathering to go to on tuesday nite, I already packed my silver purse with tea bags, cup etc so that is ready to go.
There will be quite a few people I don't know. Yikes!
I drank nothing but tea, I socialized and was not anxious, I managed to eat health foods, I did not pick at my fingers or face.
It was a successful evening.

So the event was “ok”. They had some raw veggies there so I had some of that but other than that it was mac n cheese, spring roll type things, meatballs, etc. I tried to eat as best I could and I only took a little plate. Jeff was working so I couldn’t drag him along to this one. Next week, I actually asked him to take the night off from work so he could go with me (he works shift work).

Bizi – I “got out” of going last year so I didn’t think I should bail two years in a row. It wasn’t too bad. Great job on 11! Just try to keep it reasonable on the party today and enjoy!

Wondawoman – too bad the party you wanted to go to was cancelled. We have a lot of people around here with the flu too.

Donna- batch cooking IS work- but big pay offs during the week when you just take out and heat up!
Yes our holiday time is fun. So great to see everybody. And we also always watch Love Actually.
-that is our holiday movie
sorry to hear the party was cancelled and hope your friend feels better soon!

My Dad called. He sounds bored and lonely so he wants me to eat lunch with him... I don't mind seeing him at all but the food -yuk! I will bring a big side salad. he will eat some too. It makes him happy so I will go

Em, your family holiday sounds fantastic and fun! Our tree & decor are up, started early to cheer ourselves up. Love our new skinny tree. Looks pretty magical in here.

Good luck Bizi!

Linda, how did party #1 go? Might you skip #2?

Cooking make-ahead meals to freeze for the holidays. I feel like I'm terrible at meal planning so this will be interesting. Filling for steak & ale pot pie, lentil soup, stuff like that.

My favorite holiday party for tonight was cancelled b/c my friend has the flu! I'll miss everyone. Not sure what we're doing instead, got another party invite but that one's super crowded and not much fun, so blowing that one off. Maybe we'll just rent a fun movie and sip the leftover ale...haha....

Have a good one, kids!

Hi Bizi!- wishing you good luck!and emoticon on 11 days AF!

Linda- yep sometimes those things can be boring! Maybe husband can be dragged along for support and to exit early? My kids are 20-25 now so I dropped decorations and all that stuff.
-my DS comes back from college and we bring up the old decorations tho and do them kinda "stranger things" style. Hang lights in living room...bring up nativity set I got from MIL and we have a disco ball in it and lego people..some random things..... our family- as we grew questioning ...became atheists and agnostics with only DH remaining a kinda catholic.. so our holiday is for us- just to be close... we make it up as we go along...seems way to many buy into this obligatory BS. This is the time of year to hibernate!!! Not do all the silly decorating garbage...who started this stuff???
Marketing sheeple most like

So- I hope in some way you can make the party yours and enjoy it some how and no need for alcohol to make things quirky and fun!

and tha tbeing said... I am debating 100 days -not sure. Times are very hard right now!

We have our "Family" Xmas party tonight. I say "Family" because this is the one with finger food and Santa and the kids are invited. I don't have kids so Santa doesn't excite me! Next week is our dinner Xmas party with no kids. I don't like to go to either of these but it is expected that I attend. I spend all day, all week with these people and really the last thing I want to do is spend this Friday night and next Friday night with them. Nothing will be healthy to eat. I am not a very social person and I will find this very boring. I get anxious in large gatherings, so arriving at 6 by myself will not be pleasant for me (hubby working or I would drag him along). Oh well, I'll just take it as it goes.

Sorry for the rant, I just needed to get this off my chest.

My heart goes out to you Cherie. I wish I had answers but I don’t. I would suggest to try to cut down from now until NY so going cold turkey might not be so hard. I have a little list of my reasons I want to be AF. Whenever I am feeling tempted I try to read the list to remind me. We are here for you. emoticon

Hi all!

I'm feeling really sad, my husband doesn't trust me with drinking caused I hid it and lied by ommission. He got mad caused I spent too much money at the grocery store. Then I charged the wine and put it in my purse. Hes home today. I don't feel good at all. Like I have an ulcer or something. Heart was palpitating.
Hes telling me hes not going to live like this.
I have to go AF, just have too. I love him. Hes my soul mate.
We are going to Mi this weekend and there will be drinking going on.

was planning to quit on Jan 15th. he said no, NY"s

This is tough.

Help! Cherie

I,m Cherie, Been with sparker for 3 yrs, I like that I'm losing it slowly! Its a lifestyle!

Ah, well at least you only had 300 calories of those! One bad day won't ruin everything but unfortunately you get bloated. Sorry to hear.

I wasn't planning on having any treats last night but a friend dropped off some Xmas cookies! I at least only at 2 and like you, I could have easily eating the whole box!

hi linda!
The reason it was dissatisfying is because I was to limit what I would eat.
They were so good I wanted to eat the whole bag is what I was trying to say. So it would be very hard to throw them away. emoticon
I had 300 calories of them last night so not horrible, but the rest of the snacking really added up.
I am not counting calories but I bloated up so much from the snacking I looked 9 months pregnant!.

Cherie – MMMM homemade chicken soup with fresh bread sounds yummy. My hubby feels like he is catching a cold, I should probably make some chicken soup for him!

Bizi - I hate wasting stuff but is it really wasting it if it is dissatisfying anyway? My husband’s name is Jeff also!

Weighted myself this morning and I am 159.2. I am happy with that, now just to keep it going downward and not up.

I totally blew my diet tonight,
ate potato chips, almonds, candy....
I hope it is not the zyprexa catching up with me.
Or maybe the sugarless candy, it was so dissatisfying...I wanted to eat the whole bag!!!!!
I think it triggered my cravings to snack.
I never snack like that!
maybe I should just throw the rest away?

jeff will be gone tomorrow, I don't like it when he is away.

Wondawoman – Sorry to hear about the problems with ex. Nice that you had some fun time with you DD.

Bizi – yah! Under 180 and one week AF. Wow, that is quite the savings for one month. I am lucky, we have a bunch of exercise equipment downstairs so I don’t need to go to a gym.

I have been doing well. I am waiting until Wed morning to weigh myself. I always fluctuate between weighing myself daily, to weekly, or every couple of days. I can’t decide which I like better.

I have managed to lose a few pounds water weight probably but it is a start.
179....I hope that I never get in the 180's again!
made it one week AF.
Lunch:
chicken salad
Dinner:
split an order of bang bang shrimp and had one slice of bread with pesto olive oil, chicken, lilly's from bone fish grill. It was so delicious!
with spinach, basil and artichokes and goat cheese and lemon butter sauce. side of spinach and brocoli. I cut up half and boxed it up right away to bring home as it was a lot of food.
It will be lunch tomorrow.
I decided to quit the more expensive gym and rejoin the planet fitness one and save $55 a month.

You're doing great, Bizi!

Not so good here. Really rough emotional time with my ex and DD. I think he has lost his mind. She has cried for days. Shifted schedule so she can be with me more. Emotional eating and drinking. It's like I was having PTSD from our divorce. But I'm so proud of my girl, and myself really, for holding our ground.

DD and I had a "wog" (walk/jog) the other day, which was fun. My first time running in years, but we're taking it slow. Jeff the Magical Trainer has approved! Maybe we can go again this morning.

Back to tracking Monday.

Have a swell Sunday, Sparkies.

Got home from working out of town at 4;30 and we had dinner of chicken with indian spices/chick peas that was good along with half an avocado and a sparkling cranberry water. I need to drink more water! my phillips caplets are not working....I may have to take something to get going
After dinner we went to a musical show, lots of christmas songs performed as if it were a USO concert for soldiers. Very patriotic, I loved it!

Em – Congratulation on your “boot camp” start today!

Good job on 4 days AF bizi, were you able to keep it up? emoticon

I didn’t drink Fri or Sat night and I have slept great! I feel great except for the muscle I pulled about a week ago. I am surprised that it is still sore, definitely takes longer to heal now that I am older. emoticon

Thanks Helene!- although I certainly have not been perfect on many days.
Too much chips and snacking and drinks-
so as this has been a tough time with health issues of family members. Visiting 2 hospitals and a nursing home. It HAS however made me strengthen my resolve to optimum health-

Planning is SO key.
So begins a "boot camp" of my own on 12/3/17 and weight goal to be met on 3/21/18 or before
YES! I do love those numbers. 108 days of boot camp and weigh in on the 109th day. Weekly weigh ins on Wed. Today workout plans and menu planning. Yes some last drinks after visits-
one discovery I have made is the air quality of the nursing home and of hospitals creates a craving for beer- SO I plan on bringing some cold seltzer (lacroix) or kombucha for car ride home and or maybe some gum -I am not a gum chewer but I think it will help.

Cleaning out fridge today- before visits to family.
The boot camp time is AF for most part - if 1 glass of wine or a beer happens will not beat myself up over it.

I do not think I will blog about the boot camp.. not sure yet.. I don't like to divulge family matters and without that the blogs are pretty boring ! lol

Bizi emoticon on 4 days AF

Linda- emoticon on mod drinking!

Have a beautiful Saturday Sparklers!

Sorry I haven't been around much, still trying to get in the habit of going to the SparkTeam area.

We had hubby's work Christmas party last night. I am glad to say I only had two beers and one glass of wine over 6 hours. Ate a bit too much but did get a little workout in before we left.

Em - sounds like your family life is full... but you are a rock star showing so much strength!

Bizi - the meeting with your pdoc sounds great. Glad to hear she was very attentive and supportive.

I just posted the new December MOD/AF thread - I'm continuing on my AF journey - day 90 today.

I also just posted a SP blog if you want to check it out.

Happy Friday and most importantly

still lots of running around.. so need to get a plan together...off to visit sister but not Dad today

Meeting with social worker on Friday and possibly Dr. to see course of action. We want our sister back!

FIL in for triple bypass tomorrow.

DH has us meeting with his friend who wants to homeschool and wants to pick my brain tomorrow.... it is funny the homeschool community itself except for a couple of people don't even connect with me.. I see too many people failing their kids that way...

Got on scale emoticon and am going for 5 pounds at a time pretty much so 5 stages until 123.4 goal weight. Sometime in March... lol shooting for 3/21- that would be perfect!
Yeah! 123 by 3/21 emoticon

oh AND NO BOOZE!!! until I reach goal weight and have been maintaining for 3 weeks... then I will see... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I saw my pdoc this evening at 4;45pm.
She was very nice and concerned,
she truly wanted to hear about my struggles, intimacy with jeff, showering, self image, loss of self/identity when I told her about my hip and arthritis and my weight....and social anxiety issues.
she spent over a half an hour with me.
She did not give me too much grief about the drinking like I thought she would so was grateful for that. She was surprised that naltrexone was not really helping. She really does not want to keep me on zyprexa because of weight gain. I want to stay on it to see if it helps with my mood, I don't think I am hypomanic now.
Tonight I Had good self control, did several hours of paper work that I had been avoiding.
I won't see her until the end of january.
She documented me mild depression. She said she was afraid to put me on an antidepresant, and I said no agreeing with her afraid of mania.
It was a really good visit.

Hi all!

I know what it feels like to have to buy bigger clothes. I'm maintaining now, but next year in Jan, I plan on AF. I buy the type of clothes that won't matter if you gain or lose some weight. Thanksgiving triggered me to want to sneak and drink during the week.
For some reason, our stomach felt uncomfortable!

Looking forward to seeing my kids up in MI on the 8th!

Have a good day!

Hi Bizi!- I have a few of those holy sweaters too! Sew them up when I get the chance.

Been busy- the one good thing about all the health crisis is that the family comes together.... and then another thing is me realizing I need to get back on track too-like you Donna.

Happening soon... exhaling.. jumping in...
- I think I will let the scale back in my life to help monitor as my original plan was a bit derailed.
Back on - back in- win win

Bizi, I'm glad you were able to navigate your social anxiety so well. Your description of the LA wilderness sounds so lovely.

Celebrated my man's birthday all weekend, drove down to Laguna Beach yesterday for his bday lunch then to an arts festival. Nice day.

Looking forward to getting back on track today! Gonna clean out the fridge, freeze leftover turkey and gravy, and start tracking food again. Made steel cut oats with apple this morning.

Have a great Monday!
