You had me worried, glad your back

Stom just came in, rain pouring down. I am at my friend's house and have to walk home in a bit. Hope it lets up so I don't get to wet.

JANLEH, you are probably in a different time zone than the computer because you comment was timed after 12:00 a.m. I am Central so my time is always 1 hour after the East such as New York.

Hey everyone!! Well another day...:) Didn't do great yesterday I don't think. Had a few tamales. It is that season here in Texas. Actually had ordered some for a fundraiser and well that was dinner last night. Then had to pick at some other stuff too. This is the last official week of my BL challenge. I think I have managed 2 pounds in 12 weeks. yuck!! Gaining 2 this week didn't do me any favors. Got to get motivated to finish it off good so maybe can lose another pound or so. I'm in my Christmas funk I think. Have to figure out a way to get through it with out sabatoging myself. Anyway, think I will do a blog with a few of my pictures. There are some that are really good.

Hope everyone is doing ok.

Kathryn: that is why maybe some natural methods to keep you regular might help you so you are not experiencing any ill side effects. xlax can be hard on the system!!

egh..well weigh in was not get that is for sure. 2 pounds up...but guess it is better then yesterday when it was almost 4. yep not in a good place today...lol. but as always hanging in there and I'll just keep on going. Really have to figure out how to jump start this thing again. I am stagnant. Have to figure out what I can do that will help but not be overwhelming. If I can get a few pounds off this year and then really hit it hard after the first of the year that would even be ok. I got my pictures back from the thing Saturday and guess I am really picky because I didn't care for most of them. I look fat...and that has me bummed out today I think.

Anyway, Kathryn hope you start to feel better. You might want to check out some Magnesium Gluconate. I think it is. Drinking that daily helps with BM and it is natural and is good for you actually. I have constipation issues a lot so have tried various methods.

Well you all have a great day!! Be back tomorrow with bells on!!!

Hello...well in a slight funk today. Checked out the scale and it is not pretty for this week. Tomorrow is the official weigh in so we will see but not being too positive about it. It amazes me that it takes weeks to lose a freaking pound but one or 2 bad days to gain 5. Still not sure how I wasn't like 500 pounds the way my body responds to food. Just irritating. So just going to see how the scale goes tomorrow I guess.

Kelly you are awesome!! Great job on the strength training!!

Hi all !

Up late doing some online shopping! I spent the day in town shopping also.. I am loving Christmas shopping this year! Seems easier and I have a list for everyone so I know exactly what I'm getting. We put our tree up yesterday.. it's gorgeous! We got a real one, smells so good. Last year we were able to drive up the mountain into the forest and cut our own, but not this year, but it's ok.
We had a good Thanksgiving, I decided at the last minute to cook everything at home for me and my kiddos. It all turned out really great. We skyped dinner with my husband and he also cooked everything for himself.. including two from scratch pecan pies! They looked delish!
Things are going well. I've been weight training for 24 weeks now and doing it with a trainer, but decided to start doing my own thing.. coming up with my own weight training weekly plan is hard! but I love it. Everything is going well. Looking forward to seeing more progress. I'll be in the weight room bright and early for some upper body and cardio!

Terri, the pinup party sounds like a blast!!! I can't wait to see pics!!

Kathryn, Way to go girl!

Betti, Janet --- Hello ladies! :)

Hope you all have a good night and have sweet dreams!

xoxo

Hey everyone! Ok, didn't do as well as I wanted to this weekend. Don't even think I was able to track stuff all weekend. Had 2 Thanksgiving meals. The one on Thursday I didn't do so bad I don't think. We just went to the in laws house. I did ok that day. Friday I made our dinner. And not that I did horrible, but I wasn't able to track it so not sure. Had to have my stuffing for sure. I however did not have any sweets at all through the weekend which is pretty good I guess. Saturday I had so much fun but again not so good on the tracking. My GF had a vintage pinup photo party. It was so much fun. This local photographer comes to your house. They do your make up and hair. Mostly in 50's style. They had tons of outfits to choose from. Then they do a photo shoot. I can't wait to share a picture with you all. Even as much as I hate the way I look right now they made me feel sexy. It was awesome. However, it was finger foods and wine so hard to track that. And needless to say not a lot of physical fitness this weekend too. Yesterday I was exhausted. Did some laundry but pretty much not much else. Ate some leftovers and much to Martin's dismay I was asleep at 6:30...LOL!! Guess I needed it or football was really boring!!

Kelly: I'm sure it was hard not having Will at home! But I'm sure you are looking forward to him being home for Christmas!! And the game was crazy!!! But turned out awesome thanks!!

Kathryn: wtg on the dinner and staying in range. that is great! Tomatoes are a good thing to crave...:)

Betti: hope you had a good turkey day too!!

Janet: how did you do on those cravings.

OK, well hope you all are doing good today. I could still be asleep I think...LOL! Anyway, see you all tomorrow!!

Kathryn, I LOVE those veggie trays! Enjoy :)

Terri, walking is good stuff! I've started walking more lately and it's very enjoyable.. will def be doing some walking tomorrow and through the weekend. Enjoy your food! :)

Betty, take it easy and I hope you heal up quickly!

Janet, Hi :)

So it's just me and my two kiddos for Thanksgiving tomorrow.. I'd planned on baking some chicken along with the sides potatoes, stuffing, green beans...and pecan pie! But when we were at the grocery store today, the kiddos spotted the turkeys. They asked why we didn't have one. I told them I'd planned on chicken and we didn't need a giant turkey this year. They freaked out.. "No turkey for Thanksgiving!!!???" So I bought a butterball turkey roast/breast meat. It's very small, just our size :) My daughter is calling it our mini-turkey. Husband is in Vegas all alone too. All his friends and his roommates are out of town, so he's planning on smoking his turkey and also going to make potatoes, stuffing, green beans for himself and having leftovers for the weekend. This is the weirdest Thanksgiving ever.. First time spending it apart and the weather today was 80 degrees! (I'm not complaining about the weather). I hope you are all having a wonderful week planning and if you're traveling, drive safely! xoxo

Hey everyone!! Nothing too exciting going on here. Same same...ready for a long weekend. Looking forward to it for sure. Hoping to be able to keep my eating under control. Going to plan on walking every day to help with it. Tomorrow is dinner at Martin's families house. Then Friday I will make some dinner. Saturday going to see an old friend and stay with her that night. Sunday probably recouperating and doing laundry and stuff. Martin is frying a turkey tomorrow. I am so hoping I can keep things under control. Not going to with hold anything except maybe sweets. I'm not a big sweet person at all. But it will be all that other food that will get me. How are you all planning on staying on target this weekend???

Janet: hello! How is that bike??

Betty: great to see you. Glad you are back. Hang in there and just go slow!!

Kathryn: don't beat yourself up..we all do it. It's beautiful here too...almost 80 I think today. Best time of the year to live in Texas!

Kelly: how are you doing? did you get your oven fixed?? Know it is going to be a hard holiday for you..what do you have planned with the kids??

Well I will be checking in. Might be short and sweet through the weekend. I don't have a computer that works at home so have to use my tablet and it is not the easiest thing to type on. Let's all have a good positive holiday!!!

Glad to see you back!!!

I don't know what got in to me yesterday. I did not eat much in the day time but went on a full blown binge in the evening.

I forgive myself and will go on.

Hello everyone!!

Hugs Kelly!! You have been such a rock for the last year!! I know it has to be hard to not have Will home! Good and bad about his job being extended. It is good he is working and doing well..sucks for you all though! I know it has to be hard on you to have that burden. Vent to us anytime!!

Kathryn: wtg on the walk!! You are doing awesome!!

Janet: yea on the bike...glad you are liking it. don't stress your knee out too much.

Well I had a good weekend. Spent Saturday at the Christmas Festival here in town. I was not great on my eating but oh could have been so much worse. Did have a few bites of a funnel cake but didn't eat a whole one...YEA! Picked fajita meat bowl to eat. Which I think was a good choice compared to some stuff. I know it could have been better but hey. Yesterday I made up for it by having very healthy food all day. Didn't walk this weekend though. Saturday was gone almost all day with my mom and the festival stuff. And yesterday after the football game I just kind of pooped out!! Oh well, will walk tonight!

You all have a GREAT day!!! Happy Thanksgiving week!!

Hi ladies, I've had a busy weekend with the grandbaby. Lots of fun and I'm ready for bed now. I got my exercise done and I'm proud of myself for that!

Work tomorrow. I'll try to pop in! Have a great week.

Hi Kathryn :) I'm here.. just been busy busy busy. Went for a walk with friends and kiddos this morning.. felt so good to get some fresh air! My oven has been out of order for the last week and the repair man is bout to make me scream! He better be here tomorrow! Limited on what I can make for food.. and eating out every meal is not an option. I'm doing better than I was last time I posted.. Journaling def helps.
I'm getting ready to go out with some good friends.. GOing to the movies to see Breaking Dawn part 2.. Yes, I'm a twilight fan! :)

I hope everyone is doing well and if you're traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, be safe!!! Happy Turkey Week!!!

It sounds like everyone is a bit stressed out. Life can bring so many unexpected challenges, can't it?

emoticon

I'm soldiering along ... trying to get back into my groove. Exercise is going well and I don't think I'm doing any damage to my knee although I can feel it being "sensitive" at times. It's been months and you would think the silly muscle would have healed nicely by now.

The new stationary bike is going to work out just fine, I think. I have been pressing and poking buttons galore and so far, I've figured out 2 interval routines that I like. Tomorrow, I'll try the 3rd on the list. I need my reading glasses to see the screen though but once I get going I can take them off!

Oh it's so fun to get old ... emoticon

Hope the weather holds out for you, Amy :)

Janet! How fun! We've been doing the stationary bike as part of our weight training cardio.. I have a love/hate relationship with that thing.. Enjoy it!

Terri, I'm right there with ya on the pissy mood. Thank God tomorrow is a new day. Don't stress over this week. We can't have good ones all the time. Start fresh and clear your mind. That's what I"m telling myself..

Today was rough. I went to weight training.. I completed the workout and went up in weights, but it was crap. My mind wasn't in it and I just felt like a slug. I left mad that I didn't do a better job,but it is what it is. I'm having a really tough time lately with stress and just freaking out. I've started journaling which is helpful, but I'm just feeling so lost lately. My hubs job got extended til Jan 6th and they said they will most likely extend him again once they reach that date. Kids and I will be here in Colorado and hubs will be stuck in California for Thanksgiving and we're waiting for time off approval for him to home home for Christmas. Lots of unknowns. I'm just tired of it all.. But I know that he is doing the best he can for our family and I'm thankful for that. Sorry to just vent like this.. Im trying to be a better sparker for our group, but keeping up with everything lately is so hard. I hate feeling weak and so blah.. Tomorrow is a new day.

Hope you all have a good evening xoxo

We may not be having our sale tomorrow. The weatherman says we could have showers off and on. Have to see what it looks like when we get up. Everything is priced and ready though. Hopefully we can get in a few hours anyway.

yea Janet on the bike!! Awesome!! I'm sure with your weather it will be nice to have something inside to do that you love!!

Kathryn: I get constipated too pretty regularly. Just something that I live with. Not sure that is my issue this week.

Amy: have fun with the garage sale. I so need to have one but ick...just no motivation there.

Well I am just in a pissy mood...lol. Not sure what it is. Today the weather is better so don't think that it is. Just feel like my last nerve is gone. People are on it I'll tell you. As for my weigh in the reason I'm so frustrated is that I thought I was actually making some progress. I had 8 good ones in a row. Not big losses but losses. So to have 2 gains in a row almost wipe out all of that for no reason it is frustrating. I'll get over it. I will keep on going. Just somedays I want to scream. This journey we are on is not easy I need to remember that. if it was well we would all be size 6. just seems harder this time around.

ok, I'll stop whining. Hope you all have a great day!! Let's kick some butt!!

Congratulations on the new exercise bike. I'd kill to have one here, but can't afford one right now.
I'm going to be pricing everything for the yard sale today and then the fun starts tomorrow. Hopefully it'll all sell tomorrow so we don't have to have it Saturday.

I have a new stationary bike! Oh my, it's fancy. I have no idea what I'm doing but ... I've just finished doing my first interval workout on it.

It's very neat and what a workout! Happy happy happy.

Still fat but happy! lol

I am not happy with what I saw on the scale today either, but I know why it is up. I have not had a bm for three days. Took some med yesterday and today hope it works, not a happy camper. Drinking lots of water and will eat a ton of grapes tomorrow so hope that helps.

I hope your weigh in is better next time.

Good afternoon everyone!! Well we finally have a cool front. Down right chilly out there for us. We have been so warm this year that we are all sitting around whining now that it is cold today...LOL! No business at all, thinking people are holed up inside instead of out and about. But it's ok, every once in awhile I like a slow day. As long as it doesn't continue.

Amy Great job!! I used to not be able to help with anything. Then when I started Spark the next year we did a garden. I was so proud of myself because I was able to do some physical labor and it didn't kick my butt. So sounds like you accomplished a lot there with all that hauling!! Yea to you!!

Kelly: so glad you finally got some sleep. I would say after a week I am finally on track. It took forever though. Lots of missed sleep last week for sure.

With our first cold front I am going home today and making chili. It just calls for it with this weather. Can't help but crave it!! Will get in a walk today too...going to try 3.5 miles. Feeling stronger with each walk so should be ok.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!

Good morning ladies...well I guess afternoon. didn't realize how late it was already...LOL!!! Feeling better today. Yesterday was a bust. Woke up with a migraine and cramps. Tom was here...woo hoo...NOT!! But better today. Going to walk tonight. I need to have a huge loss this week. Trying everything. I am eating well. No cheating. Tonight will probably be a big salad. One of my favorite things.

Bettie: being accountable here helps me so much. I know if I don't check in I am less likely to have a good day. I don't know when you have to tell on yourself maybe that extra sweet thing isn't so necessary! Hope you are having a good day!! Love Yoga!! Really need to get back to it myself. I was doing it very regularly. Made me feel so good!

Amy: we are all here for different reasons...but welcome again!! The transition to stay home I'm sure led to some boredom kind of eating. We are here for you...:) And yea on helping. That so counts!! Just small steps...you'll still finish the race!!

Janet: you are awesome!! You stop by when you can. You know we are here for you when you are ready! Love you!!

Kathryn: awesome!! WTG!! 30 pounds is huge!!!


Ok, folks...checked in and caught up!! Loving the new members and all the activity!! We can so help each other reach our goals!! Have a wonderful day ladies!!!

I got some much needed exercise today. Hubby is tearing down his workshop roof (as it has rotted) so I got to bundle and cart all the rotted wood to the curb to be picked up. Did 7 loads but had to quit after that. By then my back had said it had had enough. I'll be really sore tomorrow but plan to get back out there and do more to help him. Otherwise he tries to do it all on his own and with his heart condition, that's just not a good idea.

Hi lovely ladies,

The sunny skies have disappeared and it's raining again. I am having a good November with exercise and I almost feel like I'm back in control.

I have been focusing on recording my minutes of exercise and I think I'm almost ready to re-start my recording of food intake. I'm trying not to overwhelm myself and get so frustrated again that I just stop everything.

So, bear with me, my friends. I have set December 1st as my "Become a better team member" and I will visit more often and be more involved.

Step by step ... I'm coming back.

Amy- emoticon It is hard being a stay at home wife, I am retired so I know what it is like to be at home with all the tempting foods calling you and not much to do after the house is clean. I spend my day with Spark People and read in the evening.
hubby spending his day watching T.V. sent me out to lunch and shopping on him, love that man.
Weather cool and clear in th 60's
Tried to put photos on a blog and it would not let me, funny thing though it let me put a photo on my Spark page. Visit my page if you want to see an up dated photo of me.

After over 28 years of working I married a guy that wanted a stay at home full time wife, so I changed my whole way of living and eating to please him. So now I'm almost 100 lbs heavier than I want to be. I also have health issues now that I didn't have when I was slim and I know if I lose the weight I'll also lose most of the health issues.

emoticon Amy welcome! Tell us a bit about your self! Jump right on in!

Kathryn I help my boyfriend run our muffler shop so luckily if he knows what is good for him net won't argue when I want to leave a bit early.... lol

So went for my walk today but not sure if my sugar was low or I hot too hot but I almost didn't make it. That last 1/2 mile almost killed me. Took longer then usual. I got real light headed and woozy. But cool thing right now pecans are all over the ground... so while I was walking ate a few to help if it was sugar. Did make it home. Didn't last long. Been awhile since I had one of those spells. OK now though. Ate OK....did have a tried chicken wing. Didn't eat a big piece but went to Martin families tonight and his mom can fry some chicken. Yummy! Skipped the pecan pie and cake though so still a win.

OK...you all have a great night.

So went for my walk today but not sure if my sugar was low or I hot too hot but I almost didn't make it. That last 1/2 mile almost killed me. Took longer then usual. I got real light headed and woozy. But cool thing right now pecans are all over the ground... so while I was walking ate a few to help if it was sugar. Did make it home. Didn't last long. Been awhile since I had one of those spells. OK now though. Ate OK....did have a tried chicken wing. Didn't eat a big piece but went to Martin families tonight and his mom can fry some chicken. Yummy! Skipped the pecan pie and cake though so still a win.

OK...you all have a great night.

Enjoy your fireplace, glad you got your work out in

Terri-glad your boss let you go early. I get scared walking home in the dark, I try not to do that.

Janet-hope you had fun with your sweety

I had my meals planned for the day. Just before lunch my friend Gary called me and said he needed a shoulder to cry on. We walked a bit and went to Starbucks. We walked and talked some more and then went to a mexican restaurant for drinks and salsa. I ate very little and had diet coke.
What I planned for lunch was more calories and healthier but what I ate was more fun. I am not beating myself up for not eating healthy, I am just going a head and eating what I planned for dinner.

Welcome AmyB-56! Glad you're here and excited to get to know you :)

Great job on the walking ladies!

I hit the gym this morning -- back and biceps with weights and then some cardio. Good 45 min workout. I'm feeling a little better today.. Been really having a tough time lately. Anyways, hope everyone is having a great weekend! It's chilly and windy here! Lighting the fireplace tonight! :)

hey everyone!! gonna be short....been busy and haven't managed to get here before now! Doing ok. Walked for 40 minutes yesterday and did some squats and push ups too. Feeling pretty good. Katheryn hate the time change too. It is not that dark that early here though luckily. But have to leave work a few minutes early in order to get some in before it gets dark. I just haven't been able to adjust to that sleeping thing. Hopefully over the weekend I can get that worked out!! You all have an awesome day!!

I signed in yesterday and forgot to write something here! lol What a goof. All is well. I went for a lovely Autumn walk today. I think I'll post a photo of the leaves. So pretty.

Feeling stronger. Not a lot but certainly better. Best wishes to all!

I love my weight training, did I say that ha ha. A year ago I would not even lift weights if they were on my toes and now I look forward to Mon., Wed. and Fri. I like to do 10 minutes of cardio to warm up with before doing them. I do 30 minutes with 5 pound weights. I want to move up but there are two exercises that I still have a hard time doing so I will stay with 5 for a little longer. I work out at home doing exercises I have found in books. I aso work out with bands and weighted boxing gloves.

I hate how it gets dark so eary. i went to the store last night at 4 and it was dark by the time i came out. Had to walk home in the dark

Sweet tooth got a hold on me last night ate 2 candy bars, but had enough calories left in the day so I did not go over. I have to wach that I don't binge on things like that. I had 2 candy bars left for today so I gave one to my hubby.

Good morning all!! Well I didn't have a very good weigh in and I knew I wouldn't. I did't eat well this week and didn't plan well. I know it and will fix it!! Last night I ate too much salt so it screwed up my weigh in. But today is a new day a new week. It is beautiful weather and will walk tonight. Need to talk to Martin about letting me go home a few minutes early so I can get it in before it gets dark.

Kathryn: woo hoo on the high heels. I can't wear them at all. But it is a great feeling to cross those legs!!

Janet: you are the most important person in your life. if you don't take care of yourself no one else will and you won't be able to take care of all those others either!! Love that you are back!!

Kelly: you should get a cheap gas grill. I love mine and so much easier then cooking in doors. Makes grilling super easy!! Enjoy your rest day!!

Hope everyone else is doing well!!! Let's have a GREAT week!!!!

Hi team!

I was out sick yesterday with stomach bug. Eeww. Feeling much better today! Hit the gym this morning for weight training. I did 7 unassisted pull ups on Saturday and progressing in weights! Loving it! Watching the election coverage tonight.. Gonna make some hot tea soon.

Terri, You goofball! You make me laugh! Glad you found the right thread ;) Hopefully your body gets used to the time change soon.. I'm having similar issues. It's got me all jacked up.

Kathryn, You go girl!!! Love the heels story :)

Vicki, jealous of your grilling! I love to grill, just doesn't make sense to grill for me and kids... So we take advantage of grilling every time the hubby is home!

Janet, Happy you're here and doing well! :)

Hope you all have a great evening!

Happy November, ladies!

I'm on my way back into the Spark way of life and feeling changes already. I'm having a bit of a hard time juggling work, home, grandbaby, etc. but I am trying to make myself a priority at least once a day and so far, November has been good to me.

Cross fingers and toes that it continues.

It's so neat seeing all the new members of the group!

Big hugs to all.

I bought my first pair of high heels in a long time. Hubby liked them. I walked around for him, danced a little and then set down. I set with my legs crossed, some thing I couldn't do 29 pounds ago.

Hey everyone...sorry I have been missing for a few days. Been in a bit of a funk plus the beginning of the month here, so been busy.Well and it took me a few days too to remember to come to a new thread...duh!!! Yea I'm a bit of an airhead. This weekend was a bust for me. I did nothing. Just couldn't get motivated to get up. I have weekends like that where my body needs time to recoup. And this darn time change is killing me. Been up at 5:30 on the dot each day. UGH....Can't wait for my body to adjust so I can sleep a bit longer.

Bettie: welcome to our group!! sorry I was a little late saying hi!!! We love new members!!!

Vicki: measurements are a much better way if you ask me on where we are at. the scale can be so cruel at times and drive us insane!!

Kathryn: sometimes our bodies need the rest but then other times maybe not. Just listen to you!!

Kelly: I yell at my tv all the time too. This week is going to be a big game for us..chicago!! A really good test!!

Ok, got to go and check in several places. Like I said sorry I was gone. Let's have a great losing week!!!

We had a couple of the pork chops for supper tonight ( we eat early) and hubby went a little over board with the spice rubs. Still good but he said next time he'd just coat one side of the meat, not both.

Hope the new spice is yummy, I love foods cooked on the outdoor grill
some days I get fed up with the scale and put it away for a while, so I think know how you feel. Looking forward to fitting in that shirt is a good idea.

Taking a rest day did not turn out to be a good idea. I was grumpy in the morning without my high from working out to look forward to. Did my workout today and was in a better mood. No more rest days for a while.

Hope the yoga limbers you up.
Today is going to be a very nice day. Hubby is outside grilling up a bunch of meats for ready to eat meals. Trying out some new spices so we'll see how they turn out. Hope you're having a great day and will start posting to the team so we can support each other more.

Morning! I'm still so sore from Saturday's workout.. Crazy!!! So gonna try some Yoga today.

Vicki, I think that's a good plan. The scale can sometimes hinder our progress.. It's great to put it away for awhile and take away that stress. You can do it girl ! Keep pushing and stay positive :)

I decided that for my own piece of mind, I won't be using the scale anymore. If I can get Bob to agree, I'll stick it in the yard sale we're having the 16th and 17th. But I flatly won't be using it again. He says he wants to use it but he maybe gets on it 1-2 times a year, so he could do that at the doctor's office.
I will be measuring myself once a month to see if I'm making any progress but I'm going to hang up a really pretty angel top that I wore when I was a size L and work to get back down to where it'll fit me. I'm currently a size 2XL so it's going to be awhile.

Just got back from 3 hours of walking and shopping, also paying bills. Will be heading out in a hour to go to to Cocoa, Fl., for something my husband wants to see about. May stop somewhere to eat but not sure. Hope this is the start of a great week for everyone.
