Hi team, been recovering nicely from my surgery and dear hubby and I have been off to a bumpy start health wise in this beginning of a new year. One positive change we are making is we both are doing Spark together, and it starts today. Home health is now necessary for my dear hubby and we have a great team and support system and it truly is a blessing.

I hope everyone is doing well, I am glad to see all of you here and keeping the team going in my absence. I always know I can count on you.

Wishing you all continued success on your journeys and Let's Do This, Let's take 2014 by storm.

During water aerobics, the instructor wants us to tighten our ab muscles. She has us laugh out loud--Ho, Ho . Ho! while doing the ab exercises. Very effective! chris emoticon

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? By not eating added sugar, using Omega3s, base meals on veggies, water aerobics at least 3X week and using NuStep when I can't get to the pool.

Dropping by to wish you all a good week. Woke to a rain snow mix and we will only have a high of 40 degrees today. I guess the cold days are here to stay. Our fall was not so pretty this year, too much cold and not enough sunny days that followed the rain. Many of our trees are growing bare.

How is everyone doing? I hope your journey is going well. I thank you all for your comments on my blogs, page, and goodies. The prayers and well-wishes are such a comfort as I await my surgery not set til Dec 20th. I have more bad days than good, and the good ones I embrace and the bad, well I take it easy and tell myself it too shall pass.

Have a great week ahead and know I think of all of you and miss being here as often.
God Bless and much Love Me

Hi everyone, just dropping in to see you. Still awaiting surgery but we are making progress. Hope to be with you all on a regular basis in the next few months. Much thanks to CJ and Aria for keeping things going. I hope you all are enjoying your Fall Season. It has become very chilly here, and overcast skies but it is suppose to be warmer the end of this week, giving us something to look forward to.

Know that I miss you all and you are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless

Hi team, wishing you all a good friday and coming weekend. We are having fall like weather here today and through our weekend. It will be a welcoming change after days reaching 100 and high 90's.

DD got top braces on, she has been in so much pain but she is one tough gal and she is taking it well.

DH just learned he has a lung disease common in those with muscular dystrophy and also severe obstructive sleep apnea. So his doctor is working closely with a medical supplier and we should have his bi-pap machine soon. Still awaiting a home assessment to get his scooter, all in good time I guess.

Well it is decided, after another return to our local hospital as directed by both my family doctor and OBGYN this week, I am seeing a specialist out of town next week to consult for robotic surgery for a total hysterectomy. As much as I dread it, I know I can't go on the way I am so I am looking forward to the day when this is all behind me. I welcome your prayers and if I am absent from here hope you will continue on.

Anyone interested in helping lead the team please email me, as I have seen no posting in quite a while from our other 2 leaders and with me going to be out a while, could really use the help.

All that is needed is recognizing members for there accomplishments on there journey, posting to the team and welcoming new members. You have the opportunity to create topics of interest and create fun challenges to inspire and motivate team members. I expect to be gone several weeks beginning next Wednesday for an indefinite time period.

Thank you in advance, Debbie

Hi team, my symptoms are back and I have had to restrict my activity in anticipation of my surgery Sept 3rd. I hope that you all are doing well and will continue to carry on even in my absence from time to time. Know that you have CJ and Aria as well and they are here for you anytime as well I am certain and I thank them both.

I appreciate your kindness and encouraging words left here and on my page. God Bless

emoticon Hi team, hope everyone is doing well and I wish you all a wonderful summer like weekend. The sun is shining here this morning and the rains that came through really cooled things off nicely, less humid now. Hoping to take in a little walk today with my daughter if she is up to the challenge, lol.

DH is still sleeping, all is quiet for now and I am just enjoying my time here with friends and anticipating a very good and relaxing day.

Take Care and glad to be with you all. God Bless

Hi team, hope you all will help me welcome our newest member KAILABURCH7 to our team.
Hope you all are having a good day. Went to the dr. yesterday and have been cleared for my surgery on Sept. 3rd, they moved my time up so I should be home by noon that day and won't have to pull Kayleigh out of school, so I am happy about that.

Bill (my dear hubby) went for his sleep study last night, so morning came early for us all, as I had to pick him up shortly after 5 a.m., omg.

Today we are getting some much needed rain and hopefully it will cool us off a bit, as it has been so hot and humid here.

Wishing you all a blessed day and again so happy to have Kaila and Linda on our team!

Hi team, please join me in giving a big Laugh a Lot emoticon to our newest member IMLOCOLINDA. emoticon

I wish everyone a good start to this week where you are, and hope it is a promising week for you all on your journeys. I slipped up yesterday and sort of fell off the wagon and ate a little more than I should, so I chalked it up as a "freebie day" , hadn't had one of those yet, and today I am determined to stay on track.

Emotions are running high for me today. I think its just all I have been going through and doing for my family and its getting the better of me. Hoping things will calm down and I can relax a bit this weekend, I truly need it. This is my last weekend with my girl and then she is off to school next Wednesday. She is such a great helper when she is home and I appreciate her so much.
Wishing you all a good night and a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,me :)

I have been slacking in real life, which usually equates to not coming on Spark People. I've kick started again, so I'll be on more consistently.

I find that when I get a lot of Spark points it equates to doing well in the real world. And for some reason I'm a sucker for collecting points.

Good Morning everyone, hope you are having good weather where you are. It has been raining here. Today I am taking it easy, doing some light housework and catching up on my reading. I am a huge fan of the writer Richard Paul Evans. I have read nearly everything he has written. I began his walking series a few years ago. Beginning with his book "The Walk, followed by Miles to Go" and now I am reading "The Road to Grace", and it is so good. Hope to complete it by the weekend and then he has a fourth book to the series called A Step of Faith.

His fifth book to the series is due out next May 2014. So if any of you are looking for a good series of books to read you might consider checking these out at your local library. I would love to see it become a movie someday, would make a good one.

Well I wish you all a good day and take care.

Hi team, its been a busy time of school shopping for us, as school gets underway in 2 wks. Don't know where the summer has gone, it sure hasn't been a very good one for the kids with all the rain we have had. So today I am back to the OBGYN, feeling frustrated and thinking perhaps if nothing comes from this appointment perhaps a second opinion is the next step, tired of feeling this way.

I hope you all are doing well and I wish you a great day.

thank you all for your prayers. well the biopsy was benign and we are so relieved, however I am not totally out of the woods just yet. they can't figure why my uterus is the massive size that it is, and the lining so thick. they don't want to do a hysterectomy because the surgery would be long, healing time considerably longer and with my diabetes they say that puts you at risk as well.

the nurse practitioner had to see me because my OBGYN got called to the hospital to do emergency surgery and would be out much of the remainder of the day. So I had another exam and cultures done for signs of infection, and had to go for lab work and I go back to the office to see my dr. on August 7th. the nurse did say they may consider doing a D&C and she said in some cases it diminishes the size of the uterus, stops the bleeding and other symptoms I am having. Only thing is, my OBGYN goes on vacation after Aug 7th and won't be back til Aug. 28. she said they need to move quickly and do something because the longer this is put off the more likely this can turn into endometrial cancer, so there you have it. I am relieved for now, and hopefully they will figure this all out and get going and do something as soon as possible.

I thank you all for your love, support and prayers. Praise Be to God, I give Him all the Glory.

Hi team, updated my walking, just 2 days left and I wish to thank all of you that participated with me. I will be in and out a short while tomorrow but will not be here Wednesday as I will learn the outcome of my biopsy and will spend that day with my family. Asking for your prayers and know that I am doing okay. I have been reading a lot and feel stronger with the knowledge I have so what will be will be. Continue on in a positive way, and know that I am thinking of you always.

emoticon Hi team, good news to share. DH is home. They did an MRI on his hand yesterday and wasn't as bad as they thought, so NO Surgery!!! In fact, they wrote a prescription for an antibiotic and he is home. Oh how we missed him and so did our dear pets, emoticon Chloe emoticon Rosie.

Now just hoping my news next week about the biopsy is better than they initially thought as well. Thank you all for your caring words, and prayers.

Have a wonderful day, got much catching up to do, what a difference a day makes. :)

Hi team, thinking of you all and wishing you only the best Last night had to take DH to the ER with pain and swelling in his right hand and from what we have no idea. To our surprise blood test showed infection so they admitted him. I have my biopsy today so keep me in your prayers please and I will be absent for a few days til I get my DH home with us. Anyone wishing to post new topics for discussion, initiate a challenge, etc.....l in my absence is welcome to do so, you are in good hands with CJ and Aria as your leaders as well, and I thank you in advance. Thank you in advance for your loving words and concerns and know that it doesn't go without notice and appreciation. Love to all, Debbie

Today has been a busy one once again, seems to never end. Just getting on here and sorry for that too.

DH is battling troubles with arthritis and the rainy days just aggrevate it all the more. So been doing what pampering I can and medicating to try to ease his pain. Then it has been meals, and shopping and whew, I have been on the go go go and I'm tired. I've done more than I'm suppose to, but I'll try to rest up for my biopsy tomorrow. Just hope I remember to medicate myself before I go as I was told to do. I don't like taking pills, but I don't like hurting either so I'll make a note to self: TAKE THOSE DARN PILLS, LOL

Well I am turning in soon, and I wish you all a good nights rest!

Love to all,
Debbie

Hi and good evening everyone, updated my step tracker with the team tonight and didn't think I walked all that much this week but did 11.32 miles and 22, 645 steps so I feel really good about that. Its been a good challenge for me, though my weight has been up and down seem to keep losing and gaining the same 5 pounds the walking has kept me I'm sure from gaining more. It also helps me clear my head and I feel much better when doing my daily task and chores.

My goal this coming week is to drink more water. I drink a lot of tea and although it is decaf its not the same as water. With our heat being what it has been and from the sounds of things this week will be a repeat, keeping hydrated with water should be an easy task.

What goal will you set for yourself this week?

Wishing you all a good night and a great week ahead. emoticon

Good Afternoon, I hope this day serves you all well. I hope you take a few minutes out of your day to focus on your goals and what you hope to accomplish this week. Will it be to log your steps, will it be to try a new exercise routine, get back to tracking, eating right, drinking more water, or taking some much needed "me time" to read, rest, meditate. If your like me, I don't take enough "me time". But I am determined to slice out a little time in my day each day to do "whatever, I desire that gives me joy".

So.....I hope to inspire you to do something for yourself this week. At the end of the week I hope you will share how much better you feel, what you experienced and decided to do "just for you", and the benefits you see in being a little "self-centered". Its not a bad thing. You'll see.

Have a good day everyone.

Hi team, wishing you all an enjoyable weekend. Suppose to have storms that they can may be severe at times so hoping our daughter gets home from her slumber party last night before it happens. Hate driving in storms. Not much planned for the day, so going to do some reading this afternoon.

Updated my walking chart, please if you are participating, update yours as well this coming week if you can, we just have 11 days left in this month and our challenge will end. emoticon emoticon

Have a great day everyone.

Hey everyone, changed my spark page to celebrate my birthday this coming week. I will be "55" and I'm happy about that.

Hope you all are having a good day. Dinner was super, did a peppercorn roast with potatoes and carrots, very tasty and didn't mind the peppercorn though I was doubtful in the beginning preparations. Big hit with the hubby. Going to make a pie later I think, we'll see how energetic I am, lol

Have a good evening as well. See you all tomorrow, good luck with your walking!!

Hi team, hope you all had a delightful weekend. We are having showers off and on and some areas have potential for flooding, as we have been having rain for the last 3 weeks daily. Looks like as of Thursday we are due for a nice change, low humidity and sunshine, I am so ready for that.

DD is so excited. She is going on Friday to a Justin Bieber concert with her gf. OMG you can imagine the excitement of our 13 yr. old teen. LOL I am happy for her, a nice experience for her., its been a boring summer for her thus far, so this will be her chance to just "have fun".

Also, got word this week the insurance approved her braces/retainers so they will start putting them on July 30th, so I do thank God for the blessings.

I am awaiting a call from my doctor as she tries to get me scheduled into a specialist and forward test results to him. The waiting is the worst. Please continue to keep me in your prayers, and I thank you.

Wishing you all a good week, I will be in and out over the next few days, but your always in my thoughts and prayers, and as always I wish only the best for all of you. emoticon

Saturday July 5th, 2013

How are you all? I wish to thank so many of you for commenting on my blog, leaving goodies with notes and encouraging me on my spark page. Know that I am and will remain optimistic, explore my options and be vigilant and do whatever is deemed necessary. Even with all that said I ask for your prayers., and thank you.

Well we had a nice 4th of July, dodged the rain and even yesterday went and visited an old friend in SE Ohio and seen some sunshine. It has rained here about 2 1/2 weeks, so seeing a little sunshine was wonderful, as you might guess.

Today is going to be a day of slowing down a bit, getting back into my routine, and eating right. This holiday has been a good one and much needed time to get out and have a little fun, but it sure plays havoc with my diet. I haven't made too terrible of choices but not eating at the right times and more goodies than I am use to. So we'll get back to what we know works and get going again.

Have a good day everyone, and thanks again.

Good Evening Team; Its after midnite but I wanted to take a moment and Welcome Oceanmistcali to our team. Its been a long day for me and my family, longer than anticipated and emotional draining. I received some disturbing news today with regards to my health, and I ask that you please keep me in your prayers.

tomorrow I just need to be with my family and collect my thoughts a bit.

Thank you in advance and keep on with our walk. God Bless

Hi CJ ( glad you are on board for the challenge) missing Aria,

Dear team members considering or signed up for the challenge for July. Under the topic to log your steps for the challenge, you can create your page and use the emoticons to decorate it up any way you choose, its your page and so whatever your fancy, just have fun. **hope this answers your question Shepherdmom emoticon

I know we are going to have fun. Let's reward ourselves throughout the week and make sure to send someone on the challenge with you a goodie for encouragement and recognition. I am so happy that some of you have already contacted me to say "I'm In". WE have a big team so I hope that more will join in, there is still plenty of time, so get your pedometers ready and for those needing to get one, they can be found for around $5.00 at most all Walmart Stores.

thanks everyone!!!!

emoticon Hi team, good to hear from you Robin and ShepherdMom; wonderful, I will send a team letter out today to spark some more team interest and then what will happen is I will create a topic for the July Challenge. There you will set up your page in which each day or week you can post your daily steps. End of each week convert those steps to miles and at the end of July we will see how many miles we walked as a team. emoticon

Yes, when you strap on your pedometer in the morning when you get up and just let it count your steps it is amazing just how much we walk and don't even realize, but it can be motivational too, the more you do the more you want to do.

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to doing this with you all.

Have a good day, off to get things started for us. :)

Hi team, its been a busy day for me and my family today. Took DD to the orthodontist this morning for a consult and we will know when they run the insurance if approved when they will begin.

Got home and had lunch and went to the library and store. Man is it a hot one today. Thought or should I say was hoping the rain we got throughout the night and early morning would cool things down a tad but no such luck.

Hope you are all doing well. Any thoughts about a challenge for us here for the summer? Let me know.

Have a blessed day.

Hi team, Robin good to see you and your day Sunday on the lake sounded fabulous, hope you had a great time, and I'm sure you did gf.

So how is everyone doing today? Its sunny and oh so hot. Pop up showers may be in our forecast they say, and we could certainly use a little rain. I figured when I washed the car Sunday it would rain that is how it always happens but nope, didn't happen, lol

This week and next will be busy, with dr. and dental appointments, eye exams, you name it, but all necessary to stay in good health.

Would any of you be up to a 4 wk walking challenge, where we just put on our pedometers and let it count our steps? Let me know, thought we could do it for the month of July. Think about it and kick me an email or respond here. Some of you are very creative and may want to consider doing a virtual walk and that's okay too. A long time ago I took a poster board, made a map to somewhere, each block on the road map I made was a mile and I made a cut out person and each day I walked so many miles I moved my little person along. It was fun and you would be surprised how creative you can be as well as inspired, so if it sounds like fun to you we have time before the first of the month.

Have a great day everyone.

emoticon Hi Team, how are all of you? I hope your doing well. emoticon I have had some ups and downs with regards to weight loss, nothing surprising but it can be a bit disheartening. So I will reset my ticker today and I have reduced my calorie intake as I believe it was set too high for me. I did some research and looking back through my personal journal I keep as well as my tracker the weeks I had lost I stayed around 1200 to 1400 calories, if I exceeded that (as it was previously set at 1560 -1800) I would have a slight gain of 1-2 pounds. It reset my nutrients too which I was also seeing I was having trouble meeting. I guess we all have to fine tune from time to time and find the formula that is just right for us as individuals. emoticon So I am taking a positive approach and hoping this helps. emoticon

Please share what discoveries you have made along the way on your journey I would love to hear them. emoticon

Have a blessed day. WE have sunny skies and temps in the 90's again today, thanks be for God for this glorious day. emoticon

Hi everyone its a beautiful day here today and everything is going well and I hope the same for all of you. Any suggestions for a summer challenge? Please let me know if your up to it! With all of the activities that come with summer we can all find fitting ways to keep our bodies moving and burn those calories, so it can be a challenge of keeping active, or staying within your limits, think about it and let me know.

well off to do some much needed chores in the sunshine, bye for now.

Yesterday I did some house cleaning and just now got through push mowing.
Dinner last night was great! We had grilled hamburgers, potato salad and pork&beans. Having seen DD three times, it now feels as if she's still here. Her DH is already in Denver, CO and says the smoke is heavy, and they even have ashes from the fire in Colorado Springs. I hope her allergies aren't bothered anymore by that.

Hi everyone, hope all is well where you are. We are bracing for some intense storms that are due to hit us hard today and into this evening, so I am getting all my posting here done now. Would any of you be interested in doing another walking challenge beginning from June 21st to July 21st.? Let me know. Thought we would do it just for 1 month and see how it can boost our spirits here as well as accelerate our weight loss efforts. I will send out a team email in which you can have and consider and I will look for a response here in daily chat or to the email, whichever you choose.

Have a good day.

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend and are ready to face a new week here with all of us. It's already been a busy start for me and my family. New doctor appointments today and I just got home from a dental appointment, dodging raindrops all the way, lol. Now I can settle into do some enjoyable things here at home. All last week I was on the go and I love that I have the energy and was mindful of my eating, but I'm glad for when things settle down a bit and I get back into my daily routine and feel "in my comfort zone".

So how are you doing? Facing any challenges? Celebrations? Let us know.

emoticon Hi CJ, Aria and the team, hope you all are doing well this Saturday Morning. What will you do today? What challenges will you face? How is your journey going as we move closer to Summer? We have really been busy lately with doctor appointments and all as we make some progress slowly but surely for my DH. Addressing health concerns can be emotionally draining, but I have not given in and satisfied it with emotional eating, that I have so often done in the past. With faith, and perseverance I know that all good things take time.

So today is a do-whatever sort of day. No immediate plans so we'll see what happens as the day unfolds. I am doing well with my journey though the weight loss is so very slow and right now I seem to be at a stand still. Have to bump up my exercise and see what happens next week.

Wishing you all a good day, bbl

Hi everyone, home and glad to be in out of the heat, its a hot and humid day here today. Hope everyone is doing good. I am making progress slowly but surely. Last couple days I have ate too little, but haven't been hungry and its that way for me anymore in the heat, so today I am trying to be more mindful and forcing fluids as well.

OMG have any of you tried the chicken bacon wrap at McDonalds? I'm telling you it is yummy, stopped there today on our way back from taking Kayleigh (our daughter) to her dental appointment, what a treat.

Well have a good one.
