Hang in there Deb, you just have to keep working at it and trying to figure out what triggers your eating and how to change the habit. I found a lot of what I was doing was habit driven and that was what I needed to change!

Thanks so much, ladies!

Wishing you all well and good health too.

Now that I'm back ... I need to tell you that we're off on our holiday starting tomorrow! We are driving from home (Vancouver, BC.) down down down to San Diego, California! Just my husband and I - we are trying to carve a little time for ourselves to relax and recover from the last few months. I hope things are covered at home and that everything will be okay. It's tough to leave but we know that we need a break.

I'll try to post photos of our adventure.

Take care, my Spark Friends! emoticon

Deb, I hope you get that spark back soon! Just tackle one problem area at a time, and don't let them overwhelm you.

LJR4Health, I hope you find the gym that's a perfect fit for you soon.

Janleh, make sure you find some time for yourself. It's so easy to put our families first, but we also need time to ourselves.

Dianne, prednisone is great for causing weight gain, but not very good for getting rid of the extra weight. If the desire to snack is getting the best for you, try eating healthy, low cal snacks like carrots, celery, or cucumbers. You can eat of lots of them with very few calories. As Frannie said, sleep is also important to your health. If I don't get enough sleep (which has happened a lot recently), I think I would eat a 2000 lb. cow by myself if she was standing in front of me. I eat just about anything I can find when I'm suffering from lack of sleep.

Frannie, I hope the chemo goes well for your mom and you get all the computers set up in time for school.

LJR4HEALTH – mom handles the chemo pretty well. They give her an anti-nausea medicine which seems to work really well. The biggest problem is the fatigue. Also, hair loss. She lost her hair with the first chemo, and it had just started coming back when she had radiation so it fell out again. Her hair is finally a length where it looks like she has a really, really short hair cut and now it will fall out again! She is a little bummed about that. Good luck with your gym, it is hard to find just the right one!

JANLEH – so glad you are back, I am glad to hear your son is doing better. Remember, taking care of yourself is taking care of your family. They need you to stick around and be fit!!

NET2BIZ – Steroids can really put on weight, a teacher in my school has very bad asthma and in the winter when she gets colds she ends up on it for months. She hates it!! Hang in there with the snacking, that can be a real problem for me too (as in last night!!!!) You just have to keep working at it!

Ladies, a lack of sleep can definitely cause you to eat more, almost as much as stress. Do try to get enough sleep at night, it is so key to your health.

Hi Dianne,

I too had to take Prednisone for an extended period of time. Besides making you gain weight it also interferes with your sleep patterns. I too found myself with a greater appetite and when I couldn't sleep I'd get up and eat. Talk to your doctor about your sleep issues! It was an observant nurse that asked me how I was sleeping and when I told her I wasn't she talked to the doc and they prescribed the sleep aid to help me out. I ended up taking Ambien so I could get some sleep. You might try the hormone Melatonin which may also help you sleep. You can't focus on health without sleep! Hope you can get off the Prednisone soon, it is a drug that has side effects that are sometimes worse than the disease. Take care!

Years ago, I took prednisone for a week possibly two, and ended up gaining twenty pounds which took forever to get rid of! I just had to take it for a few days and noticed that I have been just snacking like I never do. Hopefully it is out of my system now!!

I am impressed with those of you who are losing weight! I have been on prednesone for about 3 months, 1 cycle after another - coming off of it gradually, now, and I'd like to blame my weight gain on the steroids. But, I am just continueing a trend. It's when I get home at night and settle in front of the TV that I snack, and snack snack. Have tried going to bed earlier, just up and down till I finally get up cook myself breakfast. I think I have indigestion and hunger all confused! My solution to either and both is to EAT. I will take advice on this, if anyone has any to offer. I KNOW that I hurt less when I weigh less.

Hi ladies,

I'm sorry that I've been gone from the team for SO long. We had a very serious family issue with one of our sons to work on over the last few months. I've been struggling to find my "spark" again over the last month. I'm happy to report that our son is recovering and we can see the light coming back into his eyes again. I hope and pray that we continue to see improvement. I'm also happy to say that I am finally able to concentrate a little on myself again. Now ... to "re-start" the fight for my health and well-being!

H Frannie Sorry to hear about your mom how does she handle chemo? It must be rough for you right now I remember with my dad

Sunday I joined a different gym they have a water class but not aqua zumba so I will give it a try I purchased 2 bathing suits today one is really cute IMO one piece that has a cute skirt Made it zumba class at CARES Center today was suppose to be the last class but she made arrangements already with the new gym so I will not be attending there any more at Cares and I really do like her style

Today my mom had a doctor appointment which ran longer so I had to cancel my accessment appointment at the gym so tomorrow I will have my weigh in and measurements done. I did weigh in today for SAC I'm down 1.9 pounds

Good luck Linda, I hope you find one that works out!

Hey you guys, check out the new game KATHRYNLP put in the games forum! Word games are always fun so let's see how many people we can get involved!

Busy, busy, busy at work, OMG, we have finally gotten close to completing all of the reports we have to upload to the state. That takes forever! School starts in 3 weeks and we have over 800 computers to get into place, I don't think we will be done before school starts!

Mom started chemo again last Friday, the cancer started growing again in her liver, so the doctor wanted to get on top of it early on. I know one day there will be nothing they can do but she has already had 10 months more then she would have without treatment, this will give her several more months and it is possible there will be something more they can do then. We will see!

Bonnie, we are both getting old.....

Well, my lovely weather has departed! That little bit of humidity is still here, and it is supposed to be in the low to mid-90's all week. It's noon and I actually put my fan on. (I'm still bragging, I guess!)

Thanks for rubbing it in, Barb! LOL These 100 degree days with high humidity are getting very old (or maybe I'm the one who's getting old!)

Things keep interfering with early morning workouts for me, so my exercise had been lacking a lot recently! The fact that it was 79 degrees at 5:30 this morning and I had an early morning doctor's appointment blew any chances at outside exercise today. Hopefully things will go better tomorrow. I also need to bake cookies for VBS, so I need to do that before it gets hot as well.

Hey everyone, hope you are all able to beat the heat, it is about 100 today but it looks like it will cool down to the mid 80s later in the week. I don't mind the heat too much but 100 is tough!!! I did walk to work this morning and am drinking a lot of water so I can try and walk home.

The heat is getting tiring. It drains a person. The plus is that I usually have my workout done before 8 in the morning lately.

Have a nice day everyone!

Frannie, sorry about your mom.

My doctor actually called me this morning which I thought was nice, to see how I am doing. She gave me the referral for the ENT about my ear since it has not improved. I called and they don't take my insurance, so I'm waiting for additional referral from the dr's office. What a pain.

DEEINWI listen to your dr, you don't want to do too much and then suffer a setback!

Hey all, it has been a super busy summer and I feel guilty for not posting more often. Work is insane and unfortunately the last thing I want to do is look at another computer! So, it is early Monday morning and I wanted to stop by and say hello. I hope you all had a great weekend, we went on the Architectural water tour on the Chicago river. I haven't done it before and my younger brother (the 54 year old) is in town for the week. It was a wonderful tour, but to get there we had lots of steps, mom was not a happy camper!!!

Mom had another CAT scan Friday and it looks like the cancer is growing again so we start another round of chemo this Friday. She is trying to take it well but I know it really surprised her. We thought that it would be a bit longer before the cancer started growing again. Anyway, we are all trying to keep her up beat, keep her in your thoughts and prayers please!

I went to the gym Saturday and did a very low key workout. No issues so I will do that this week as well.

Barb, hopefully you'll be able to get some moderate exercise in while you're on the new meds. Take care and take the medication. emoticon

I went to the gym this morning because I have to start taking a medication that will keep me from doing much exercise for the next week, due to side effects (possible).

Linda, hope you can find a new exercise class soon!

Barb, watch out for that heat. It is so great to only have highs in the upper 70s or low 80s here this week.

Today I'm actually going to get a bike ride outside since it I think I can beat the rain showers. If the showers come, I may keep riding as long as there is no thunder. I'm tired of being cooped up on the inside, even for exercise!

It finally dawned on me that there would be a new thread now that July is 1/3 of the way over. Guess you could say that I'm a little slow sometimes! emoticon

After a weekend with temps over 100 the highs in the 80s predicted for the rest of the week sound great. It had been hot enough here that it would almost take your breath away when you stepped outside.

I'm trying to motivate myself to get some things done around the house today. I haven't been home enough recently to do anything, or else I've been too tired from traveling to do anything but laundry. As soon as I get a bike ride in, I'm back at the computer to catch up on paper work, then into some serious house cleaning.

Good Morning!

Much cooler now. It still gets up to the upper 80's, but at least it's not the 100's. I should be doing inside work also, but I seem to be putting it off and then one day I'll be running around here like a mad woman trying to get everything done.

Have a great Sunday!

I am planning a full month of rearranging some things in my house. It is too hot to work outside, so I will be getting a few things done on the inside. Hubby just looked at me and srugged when I was trying to get him involved. But that is okay, I see that he has begun to work on his little area in the bedroom where he keeps his computor, headphones and music. I think he knows I will get to that corner and he wants to know where and how his things are. It looks a lot neater right now.

Keep on track

Happy July Everyone!
Am still home recovering from surgery. At least the gym gave me a no-pay July!
On week 7 of post op. Right now.
Quite warm here in Wisconsin, but I try to at least get my 10,000 steps in! Can't do anything else with the restrictions I still am on!
Hope everyone has a great week! emoticon
