Woo hoo Rosalyn....I lost another 2lbs!! And 2 inches from my waist!! I've been reading more and more about moving around your daily calorie intake to lose weight faster. It seems our bodys adapt very quickly to the same intake level and if it's too low will hold on to every calorie. My problem has always been...well not always, just since I've gotten older...if I eat the recomended amount of calories I won't lose any weight. I won't gain but I won't lose either. So by me actually eating more than I should I shook my body up enough for it to release some pounds!! I have heard that that was the trick that Jillian the trainer from last year on the biggest loser used to get her weight loss results but she quit the show because to lose that fast just isn't healthy. She usues that idea in her book as well.
We are all so different it takes awhile to find our way but it can be done!!
You work at a great store...have you been there long?
I'm going to go work on my chicken soup now I made a huge pot of stock now I'll freeze it in quart jars and then I'll freeze the meat in 1/2 pint jars with juice for my dog. He gets one a day and it's a quick grab for me if I need a little bit of chicken for something.
Have a great day, Wendy

Hope things are going well today as well.
The main thing is to just try and keep on top of things.

I started out pretty close to where you are now, 194#. I am down to 152-154# it cant seem to stablize,
Jan 1st I am going to try some things in the book, and see what happens. I would like to be down to around 140#

I cashier at 1st Alturnative Co-op
I really enjoy the Staff and the Customers.
Thats all for now, so Cheerio till next time,

Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance.
It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

Hi Wendy,
Wow so you were pretty close.
Well Corvallis hasn't grown much at all.
Rite Aid--Bi mart--And Bordens Books---All have there heads together and keep other businesses out as much as they can. It's a miracle that K mart got in. They must have paid them plenty under the table,
Ha ha.

Now Wendy DON'T let your Boo-boo yesterday mess you up.
Just forget about it and go on from here.

I only have 12-15#s to get to Goal, but can I get there Nooooooo.
I go Up 2# and Down 2# Come Jan 1st I am following the new book YOU ON A DIET and see if that will help.

Cheerio for now, Rosalyn

Hi Mandy,
Thanks for the welcome! I know it's hard to write it all down but I couldn't lose an ounce if I didn't! I do have friends that get around that by eating the same thing for breakfast and lunch( they know the calories in those two meals) and then just counting what they have for dinner.
I hope you didn't get hit by the wind too hard last night!

Hey...thanks for the hello's. I'll post on the main forum also. The meet and greet's sound wonderful.
I have found that keeping track of my food by writing everything down to be invaluable! I wasn't very sucsessful until I started doing that every day.
See you on the other forum,
Wendy

Welcome to the group Wendy! I agree with Sciencemavin, that is a goal you can reach! Come over to the main forum and introduce yourself and let's see if anybone can help you find a walking partner. Sciencemavin, you need to join us over there too.

BTW, we are in the process of setting up some 'meet and greet' get togethers for the different areas so we can meet other Sparkies face to face. One more reason to join us on the main forum! LOL! Chatting with us there is better for you than chowing down on cookies! LOL!

Sounds like a reasonable goal, Wendy. Good luck! I have found Sparkpeople to be just the tool I needed to keep me on track. For instance, right now I am wrestling with the desire to have another cookie from the tray of goodies in the office, but I know how it will show up on my food diary and put me over my target calories, so that is helping me resist. The battle isn't won, but it sure helps!

Hello everyone,

I'm 51 and live in Portland. I have also lived at the coast and in southern oregon. I came across the your home team by accident and was so glad to find you!! I'm a walker and would love to find some other walkers in the Portland area to walk with. I live in the Multnomah Village area but also drive all over to walk in new places so would be able to do that.
My goal is to not be heavy next summer!!
Wendy
