It says the leader has not posted in 60 days but it appears this is a fairly young thread. Hope all is well, ND. I wish we could keep an active team because I need constant/frequent motivation but when I was on earlier only one person was posting anything on the ND team. I am struggling big time gained a lot of weight in a short time. Yes, it is mainly due to food choices and poor exercise but it may be due in part to taking Premarin and progesterone to help me through the hot flashes so I can get some sleep. Got my Fitbit back and running so that will motivate me too. Take care all.

Good morning, Everyone. Thanks for your post, Claireese. As I said before, I am brand new to this, so it might take a little while to get things going. I've still not figured out all the technical stuff, and I'm not sure what you mean by the "challenge form." Is there a separate place for that? I've requested guidance from the "bosses" but so far have not heard from them.
I plan on spending the best part of the weekend going through the site and trying to get organized. Hopefully will have something tangible very soon.

I am happy to see we have a new leader. Read the email and I am interested in losing some pounds too but if we people here don't do nothing other than just post in the chat section, then I'm not interested. I do like challenges and I am ready for a challenge. The small one of 2 lbs by June 15th, sounds good to me. Why don't you post it on the challenge form? We need to get this forum active, not just chatting. I don't mind the name we have, if you want to change it, it's fine with me but I do want something with ND being recognized in the name. Well I will keep a look-out on active threads. Looking forward to more activity here. emoticon

I've been away from this forum for awhile, but decided to check in today. I'm finding very little activity, so I'm rather disappointed. In fact, I've just clicked on becoming team leader or co-leader since it looks like the current team leader is no longer interested.
I hope we can get a good active group going here. I know I do much better when I can talk to others about weight issues and how to deal with them.
I'm struggling to lose about 30 pounds--but I just have no self-discipline. And I'm hungry all the time!! Maybe participating in this group will help. I have talked about SparkPeople to several of my friends and acquaintances, maybe we can get some more gals and guys to join with us. Do you all know anyone who might be interested? Can any of you think of any fun challenges?
Latinritelady, I live about an hour west of Fargo--perhaps we can chat and give each other support. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Cheers.

I lost 8 lbs then gained 5 lbs... I haven't been able to step on the scale... I don't want to see the number go up again! Going to try to find enough in me to do it tomorrow (5-18)...

I have to get serious as I have gained weight too, out of control binge eating lately and not exercising as much as I used to. I don't feel as good either so I need to bet my act together.

Just got home from a 2 week vacation in Seattle. It was so beautiful out there - sunny and in the 70's with everything blooming and leafed out. Now it is back to reality time. I gained 4 lbs so I have to really get back into working on me and my weight. Logging my food and getting enough water, exercise and sleep.

YECK! Praying it wasn't too bad for her to drive in...

Crazy Gorgeous outside today... I walked 40 minutes pushing the duo in the double jogger stroller around the lunch hour in jeans and a tank top... I love my snow but I'm digging this weather!

I'm not sure how warm it got but it felt nice at the end of the day. Sounds like it will be beautiful this weekend, when my daughter and grandkids will be here. They will probably stay in Fargo on Thursday, break up the long drive for the kids, soon to be 3 and a 6 year old.

I have been super busy so not too good about posting the past few days. We had a few flakes of snow today, that was it. I hope it melts slowly enough not to make a huge mess for people in the flood plain. I'm glad someone else joined in your area!

It melted a LOT, which is not good because of the flooding situation. I hope it bypasses us, I doubt I'd get anything but some of the people I work with may get hit again, which is really sad. I am sooo tired, going to post, get on FB for a bit and go to bed.

I believe God brought us together. My oldest brother had autism, was high functioning, he got sick in 2008 and passed away in 2009, exactly 4 years ago today. I was devastated as I grew up as his protector. He was a little over a year and a half older than me. I still miss him terribly.

I am a special educator with two grown children and two wonderful grandchildren. i am a single parent, grandparent I should say:) I too was married to an abusive man. I was lucky I had college profs (2 of them) who encouraged me to keep going, stay in school because it was my "life insurance" and they were right. Had I not finished and got my teaching degree, I would have been stuck like you feel. I will pray you get some resolution, perhaps God can touch your husband and he will change, it can happen. My ex was evil besides being abusive, can't say much more, but it's not good, so not good. Take care and we can share more personal information through Sparkmail if you need to talk.

My oldest is autistic and has lived in a group home for 3+ years... 5 youngest live with me... I am married to an abusive JERK for almost 14 years... I'm using SparkPeople to help me leave him and have a healthy happy life for my children... Difficult since I am unemployed and haven't worked in 13-1/2 years... I have no access to money and family isn't willing or close enough to help (3 days drive away)... I will find a way out and we will be a happy peaceful family...

I only had one older brother (6 yrs) growing up... I always wanted lots of children so they have plenty of playmates...

Wow! You must be busy with 6 children, hope your hubby helps you out too. I had 5 siblings growing up too.

I have two grown children and two grandkids who are the light of my life!

I got groceries today just in case we get the awful snowstorm they are predicting. We can do without this with the flooding. So sad to be going through this again. I did not flood although our town was evacuated had the dikes broke it would have been bad.

No school today, now another day tagged onto the end of the year, hopefully they won't take Easter days, I have a flight booked but I do have personal days if nothing else. I should have done more than wash clothes but listened to several hours of podcasts from a class my daughter is taking on intercessory prayer.

Kind of lazy day today. Will have to make up for it tomorrow. I tried grinding all the ingredients for lettuce cups in my food processor. Need to do it in smaller batches but it mostly worked.

My computer or something has been a pain to post so I do the minimal and that means not going to the teams and posting. Looks like everyone is doing well save the bugs going around. Take care.

Still struggling with the whole voice thing. Not sure why it's so slow to mend.
I will be interested in a report about the Brazilian Grill. I was told it's a lot of meat and all you can eat so I have not gone.
I am not really that hungry most of the time right now. The cold and sinus stuff has dampened my senses and appetite. However my ability to exercise as well so it kind of all evens out.
I checked into curves quite a long time ago when they first came to the area and was distinctly unimpressed but I know they have completely changed now so I would probably enjoy it. However I go to the Y and go to the Y and go to the Y.
Have a great week ladies.

Hope you all had a great Valentines Day!!! I actually went to Curves and had a great workout. It was hard getting back to exercising again but I thought better late then never. I plan on going again tonight....I just love going there...it give me a great workout along with talking to some wonderful ladies.

Clare, sorry to hear they closed Curves in Hazen. I didn't realize they even had one there. And as far as those delicious soups and sandwiches....I know it must be hard to eat just a little but I think your plan to have 1 bowl of soup and 1 sand with no dessert should do the trick......you can do this!!!

Lori, hope you get to feeling better soon:)

Ahh Toni...you workout at Curves. NICE! I checked into joining Curves last fall and Curves around here, which was in Hazen, were closing their doors. So had to go back on my own plan. I'm managing with the workouts as I joined the BlueCross BlueShield challenges we have through work so that motivates me. Bad thing now is Wed eves before lenten services, we serve soup and sandwiches and desserts. Last lenten season I gained, so I must take caution, those soups are so darn good and sandwiches. I didn't have any dessert last night, was proud of myself for that, but I ate too much soup and too many sandwiches. Next Wed I am holding myself accountable to one bowl of soup and one sandwich, no dessert.

Tonight we are going to the Harvest Brazilian Grill in Mandan for Valentines dinner. Getting a room in Bismarck for a night over and doing a little shopping then tomorrow. I've decided to take tomorrow off from work. We have never ate at the Brazilian Grill but have heard it is really, really good. So am looking forward to it.

Okay so here is the reality. It's 7:12 and this is pretty much the best I have felt all day.
It's not been a good day for me. I would usually be at youth now but opted to stay home tonight, Well actually I went to church and got a few things ready but . . . than I left. I am eating some pita chips and hummus right now. Probably too much but I haven't really eaten much today.
Trying to stick with just walking for a few days right now. Hoping we are both on the mend.

Caught a bad cold from the daycare kids so I haven't been able to get to curves this week yet. Hoping I can tomorrow.

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well either. Hopefully it will pass soon.

Nice to see you Clair, most of my sites are just about gone to. I'm not on sparks as much either....life just got to busy. I've been watching my little grand daughter here at the daycare so not much time for anything else....she's kinda fussy but I just love letting her sleep on me when I'm not busy with the rest of the kids.

Can't wait till the weather starts to stay warmer, I love being outside.

Have a wonderful day all:)
