Perastika Anastasia, hope you get over your flu quickly--the whole family came down with it a few weeks ago and I know it's no fun.
Like Anna I too weigh myself daily when I'm dieting--otherwise it's too easy to stray. Whenever I don't weigh myself regularly, e.g. holidays, I invariably gain weight.
I've seen some TEFAL scales which light up different colours to show whether weight has remained steady, been lost or gained since the previous weigh-in, and I'm seriously tempted to give them to myself as a reward once I get to my goal weight.

KALISPERA EVERYONE!
I am new in this site. I am trying to figure out my way around it, still and hope I am getting everything right (i've never blogged before)...:-)
I am glad i found this team and hope to stay in touch with you guys...

I am very optimistic about this plan and I am eager to get rid of the extra kilos.

Nice to meet you all.

Cheers

Thank you for your input. I am jsut going to yoga once a weekand
just try and walk for 1 - 1.5 hours a day. I try and do some exrecises at
home and at the moment I am so busy trying to get rid of as much 'stuff
as I can and raise a bit of money as I have so many expenses right now.
My son needs $20,000 for his stint in the US next year. I want to go over
to help set him up, so we are looking at $5000 just for airfares. His US
visa is costing $300 plus the airfare to Sydney kai vale...
So gyms are off the plan for now. I am like CHOOK with its head cut off.

That is so good about Micheal's books. He must be rapt. What a clever
hubby you have. So we won't be seeing you in Oz for a while, and that means
I will have to come and catch up with you in Greece. I think I will get myself
the trainers like yours and that should help tone my legs at least.
What do you think is in store for Greece now? Is your husband's job OK?
Let me know.
Take care
Hugs
Anna emoticon

Hi Anna
From what you describe I think the best gym is the one within walking distance, aside from the lower price it's less likely that you will find excuses not to go! I used to go to Curves but didn't keep it up. Now I just walk everywhere with my Skechers Shape-Ups shoes. I know I should do more but I hate exercise since I was forced to as a child by my PE teacher father.
Unless Husband has a change of heart Australia will have to wait until Son comes of age, so in about nine years.
Son has settled in to school, thank you for asking. Husband has a photo business so he has been printing Son's school books off the Education Ministry's website, with Son's name and photo incorporated into the cover--I think when the books finally arrive Son is going to prefer to continue using Daddy's version! Even the teacher has asked for a copy, she is very impressed.


Pan metron ariston.

Hi Sunny. I had a 5 day free trial and then a special offer for $30 for 30 days.
I have been in a few times and when I get too tired I finish off with a spa and
sauna.
Yesterday I had a personal trainer go through all the new machines and tailored
a programme according to my needs. I'm happy with that. At the end ogf the 30 days,
they will waive the joining fee and I get the pensioner's rate of $29.95 a fortnight.
The plus is the pool but I am adding up expenses of bus fares etc. There is a no frills
gym close by (20 min walking distance) and only $7.95 a week so that is something
I will consider. Curves is 10 minutes away and they have a week's free trial. I will
finish my 30 day deal and decide. I am enjoying doing body balance(combination of
yoga, pilates and yoga). The gym I am at now is $36.95 pf if not on concession.

I'll keep you posted. When do you think you'll be heading to Australia?
Have a great weekend. Has your son settled in to school and do they have bookd yet?... emoticon

That sounds like an excellent gym, Anna, so many facilites and what I imagine is a good price by Australian standards? I used to go to Curves, I twice paid for a year but ended up going less than once a week so it just wasn't worth it.

Sunny, I finally got it into my head that AI am the only one
who can do something for me. I had a 5 day trial at the gym
and have really enjoyed being back. I have signed on for a special
$30 for 30 days and then if I join that means I don't have to pay the
$99 membership joining fee and it will be $30 a fortnight.

I have tried body balance and yoga fusion and the spa and sauna
as well as the Deep Water Training in the pool. I am looking forward
to trying the water aerobics. I still do my walking and weighing in at
the doctor's on Thursday and being 100 grams lighter than when I left-
well, that makes me feel so good and now when I go back to work and
figure out my schedule, I feel as though I am truly back on track.

From one 'voluptuous' beauty to another, have a great weekend. emoticon emoticon

Hello Everyone! I leave, I come back, I leave, I come back...I'm back again! This time, I have really been on a mission and I've lost 11 kilos since May 30th. I am continuing with my very successful weight loss programme. I'd love to hear from anyone in the group from Greece.
Is anyone back from holidays? What's happening in your neck of the woods? or should I say, on your Greek Beach? Many hugs, Ioanna

I saw it Shawn and have posted a comment.
Another way to have yoghurt is on top of plain rice
and also as a marinade for chicken. Mix some yoghurt
with a tiny bit of olive oil and spices or herbs you like.
I love cumin and cayenne pepper and some mustard and
oregano. Makes a very tasty chicken.
I hope these ideas give you a few new ways to use yoghurt.

I also use yoghurt instead of cheese sauce. It is nice baked and
you can use it to thickeb stews towards the end. I love it just
plain with fresh fruit and almonds too.

Hi Blue. I am so glad you were able to find FAGE where you

of it when I go there. It is really something, isn't it? Thanks for
the link as well as one can never have enough recipes.

I saw "Fage" at the grocery store today. First time I've ever seen it.. I've heard about it, but never until today actually saw it at the market.
So I bought a tub, got home opened it and tasted it...

OMG! It nearly taste like cream cheese... I was astonished, the stuff is absolutely fantastic.

So I looked around for some recipes as to how I might use it, and this looked pretty good:

I'm back again...after a very long absence! I'm still hanging in here at 91 kilos! Just can't get under that 90 kilo mark and stay! This time I'm working out 3 times a week with a personal trainer. We've had 4 1/2 hour sessions and I can really see the difference in the strength in my leg muscles. I hope this time I will go the whole distance and meet my weight goal of loosing 25 kilos. I currently weigh 91 and hope to be at 81 by end of May and 71 by end of July. So, where are all my Greek friends and moral supporters? Cathy are you back yet? I'm waiting for you girls to help me keep on track! Come on everyone, don't make me go to another group!!!

Surprise! Some life in our group. Hey, thanks to everyone who responded. I'm still hanging in here trying to keep from at least putting any more kilos on. I haven't lost even 1/2 kilo since last September. In February I gained 2 and in March 2 more! Now, I've lost the last 2 again!!! When is this going to stop. Only when I stop being lazy.

Hello everybody!
Happy to find people from Greece.I think that "sticky" has been given to this forum because of greek words we use even though written in latin characters.
I think we d better write in english therefore.
Once again after almost two years of coming and going to this site, and failed to stick to a steady and consistent healthy way of living, i decided to give it a fresh start.

Hello everybody!
Happy to find people from Greece.I think that "sticky" has been given to this forum because of greek words we use even though written in latin characters.
I think we d better write in english therefore.
Once again after almost two years of coming and going to this site, and failed to stick to a steady and consistent healthy way of living, i decided to give it a fresh start.

Hi from Thessaloniki, just checking in to say hello!

I am actually leaving Greece to go do the US for a few months but I'll be back in June. I am going to miss my home!!

Ioanna, I have a hard time Jan - March as well. I hope that over in the US I can get my act together a bit better than I have here. But in the US there is no laiki agora :( food is soooo expensive there.

Well I'm always on SP so if anyone is out there, say hey :)

Hello Ioanna! I'm new to the team. I'm Greek, born in the US. I recently lost my job. But, when I was working I usually came home at around 8:00 so my husband and I would end up eating at 9 or so. Of course, by then I was really hungry and would overeat. Is there a way you can keep some healthy snacks on hand? Some of the protein/granola bars are pretty good (Luna bars are great). Just a thought.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

GREEK TEAM MEMBERS...where is everyone? I usually have the most difficulties loosing weight between the 1st January until the end of February-March. Does anyone else have the same problem? Maybe it's the bad weather or the fact that I am on the road driving every afternoon and returning home late every night. I do ok for breakfast, and for lunch, then around 3pm I start getting hungry for something sweet. When I get home at 10pm, I want to eat everything and anything that is easy... and especially anything that doesn't have to be cooked! So, this is where I fall down. Add to this a glass of something to drink, red sweet wine and my diet is on the blink. What to do? My mind is willing but my body is not! Help! I loose two kilos and then in one month it's right back again. I'm stuck!

It would be really nice to see other members of our team come on line regularly and have some more support. What do you think? Is anyone there?:):)

Here is a link to a few photos of the new flat. I'll get the keys today and take more pics too! Wish me luck. For the next few days, I'm forced to eat out, no cooking; everything packed! Any good ideas to keep the calories down and not give in to the 'Fast Food Route?'

KALIMERA KORITSIA! Welcome to our 'Sweet' new Sparkteam member Zacharinia. Thank you Anastasia for your lovely positive thoughts!

I am taking a break from my packing, just to send a short message to everyone. Yes, I've have found a great new flat, full of light and with a sea view! It's even cheaper than where I am now and I just know it's going to be better.

I'm trying to stick to eating healthily while I am moving and not succumbing to Fast Food options, although yesterday I was too exhausted to cook and starving, so I at two chicken souvlaki...I guess that was a fairly healthy option, given the circumstances. Can't be on a diet everyday, but at least I am trying to do the best I can and at least maintain my weight until this move is over.

I may be off line for a while until my phone and computer is transfered to the new flat, so If I don't log in for a couple of weeks...but, I will try to go to the Internet Cafe, keep eating good food for your mind, soul and body.

Ioanna, soon to be in Anavissos on the Sea Front!

Hello Ioanna,
Hope you have some luck at finding a new flat. I am also renting and dread the thought of having to move as it will definetely be more expensive. I have been struggling with my weight and have not been in a good frame of mind so now I feel like I'm ready for a new start.Let's hope we can have a good journey. It is all in the mind and once you get rid of all the negative thoughts and say I can do this, it will happen. Geia hara.
Tske care and keep in touch

September is almost over! Can you believe how fast this year is going??? Just when the new school year is starting and I am again looking for new private students, finishing up with 2 Extended (4,000 word) essays, I must leave my flat of 5 years!!! STRESS BIG TIME! Diet time extra difficult! I must leave my flat by 15th October and still I have not found a suitable (affordable) flat:( I have already started packing, but with no where to move yet! How's the weight going? Well, admidst all this, I have lost my appetite. Good and bad. But, one thing is for sure, the extra kilos I've lost is by no means missed! I suppose, once I have moved, the old 'flat,' like the old 'fat' ill also not be missed. Both, just bad habbits:):) One door closes, another opens....if only I could open that new door right now!

How are the rest of you doing, managing diets and daily life???

Staying focused will help us appreciate what we have and give us the courage to keep on trying our best in our daily journey. Looking forward to easter but have to watch the overeating.

Kalimera Stelfaki!

thank you for taking the time and having the courage to write about your set-back. This is what our forum is for! If we support each other, and if we can admit that we need help, I believe that we will find success more easily.

Now, the only way to loose that weight once and for all, is to make a commitment to ourselves. I'm ready. Are you? I know now that I can loose weight, because last summer, for the first time in maybe 10 years, I lost weight instead of gaining weight. How did this suddenly happen? I believe that my efforts were accumulative, diladi..I had been dieting for over a year, not systematically, but I had been trying to eat at least healthily. Then, I stared eating more FRUIT, and especially early in the mornings. For lunch, I ate meat or fish with a salad and other vegetables and maybe a slice of bread. I didn't eat too much rice or macaroni, and when I did, it was without sauces and lots of cheese. Finally for dinner, I would eat very small portions of whatever I liked, and I often ate just a yogurt with maybe paximadi. The most important thing that I did a lot of in August, besides sweat from the heat, was that I walked alot!

Since September, and since I've been back to work, I have not been out walking more than 3-4 times!@!!! This is what has been stopping me from loosing any more weight, I'm certain.

December is my most dangerous month! I always gain at least 4 kilos, and this past month was no exception. I put on 6 kilos since September, 4 of which were in December. Now, this morning, I have gone down 2 kilos, a good start.

What are you doing now to get back on track???

Let's Loose the Extra Weight in 2008!

Happy New Year everyone. How many kilos did you gain over the Holidays? I was very, very bad! I gained 4 kilos and I feel very, very stuffed (like my turkey). That's why I'm back on Spark People.

Is anyone else going to write in our general team discussions this year? It's very lonely doing it alone. I need your help! Where are you guys???

Hi Cathy and all the new members of our team...
We have all been so affected by the recent and continuing fires around Greece. No one cannot be feeling anxious, angry and helpless in this disasterous situation. I feel very overwhelmed with teh constant barrage of photo images and video sound tracks showing the pain and suffering of the people and the environment. At some point, tears pour down my cheeks and I turn off the television to save myself from immobility. When all of this has passed in time, Spring will come again to the land; the grass will sprout green to cover the blackened earth; but, what will nourish the souls of those who have survived but have lost everything. This was not an act of God, but an act of man; Now, the only act that will save the future, will be an even greater act of man...charity, hope, faith and love.

How vain I feel, thinking about loosing a few kilos, when others around me have lost everything. What does all this mean? Is there a message here worth examining? We must be strong and healthy to survive, so keep working at our goals. Loose your weight, and with each kilo that disappears, dedicate it to those people who have lost their homes, their crops, their animals, their dreams, the loved ones. Make a promise to give something in the effort to help someone rebuild their future. Take the extra money we have saved and buy one goat; one sheep; one tree and return it to where so many were destroyed.

Life goes on and so must we. Courage!

Hi, everyone. I am back at my job after three weeks of summer leave nad I am happy that our thread got life again.
Welcome to all you new friends and may all your dreams (especially the weight loss ones) come true. I had a great time but my heart was so hurt after all those things that happened. My parents house in Asea almost got burned , my village is not burned but all the natural beauty is ruined , all my memories as a kid are totally black now. My parents lived the nightmare of the fire coming near to your house, they fought with it along with two hero-firefighters and fortunately they won. At least they saved the house and all they have to do now is live between burned enviroment.
My little daughter almost lived this nightmare as I have left her along that evening. Fortunately I took her some hours before.
Anyway I feel so sorry for all those people gone, for all those people that don't have their past anymore. And I am so angry with all those people that take advantage of all those losses and with all that tried to take the money that the state is providing without deserving it.
I feel so anxious for the world I brought my children to.
And I am sure that all of you feel the same way as I do.
My dear Ioanna, I have missed you, I hope you are OK. I am sorry I got lost, I only have computer at my job so it is not so easy to write.
I wish you all a great day
