Hi! I went to the dr. today and had x-rays. The arm is doing well. I go back in 3 weeks for x-rays again. The dr. gave me one exercise to do to keep the shoulder from freezing up. He said if the next x-rays are good, he will give me more exercises. At this time, it doesn't look like I'll need surgery. emoticon I almost went overboard when I got home. I was truly hungry, but it seemed hard to stop once I got started eating. emoticon

Hi! I've been a member here at SP for about a year now. I had been here 3 years ago, but quit. I did manage to keep off the weight I lost when I was here the first time, and I also maintained weight lost before I came to SP the first time. I've lost a grand total of 76 pounds in 3 years and 59 pounds since last August. Things have been going well until last Saturday (6/28) when I fell and broke my arm/shoulder. It's my dominant hand too! I've always tended to eat either out of boredom or being stressed. Now, my stress is compounded. I know I'm going to need some extra help to keep losing weight. I also seem to have stomach/digestive issues which get aggravated by stress. So, that's why I'm here. I have 51 more pounds to lose. I'd like to have it all off by this time next year. I know it's doable, and this should just be a minor setback, but it's a big disappointment. It's wrecked some of my big plans for the summer. Add to being at home, I'm limited to what I can do at home. It's hard to cook, hold a book to read, hard to sleep at night (with a sling on my arm), and I can't drive. It's really a big pain in the seat department! emoticon

Divorce issues are causing stress. Husbands mistress his is causing stress. Husband and his mistresses hidden love child is causing $$ stress. I've been using deep breathing to avoid reacting. Since this isn't working great, I'm starting a several hour house cleaning project to burn some grief. This should scrub the weasels out of my system!

Finding that walking really helps reduce my stress. I guess it is because I am all alone with my thoughts and not pressured by demands at home. I walked twice yesterday and really needed it. Stresses with caregiving an elderly parent on top of clearing out her home and dealing with a demanding husband really get to me sometimes.

emoticon I hope all are enjoying a totally stress-free day!

I find it very interesting that stress for me always comes from outside sources & thankfully it does not last long --- I have learned that the first place to take my concerns (whatever they may be) it directly to the Lord in prayer & praise. IMMEDIATELY I am given such peace of mind & heart that I am not facing whatever circumstance is before me alone. The concern is still there to be worked through; however, it doesn't seem as huge & impossible to deal with as it may have initially.

God bless us with His wisdom in handling any stressful situation that comes our way this beautiful first day of May 2012!

Got really involved with helping a client build a website and after that couldn't calm down. It was a weird combination of wired and tired.

Also had trouble sleeping, although that may have been something else.

Good morning all. Do hope that you all are doing well with stress reduction. I have had several days of being mostly stress free. My mother in law has had a couple days off work and I have not really had to do anything. My husband has been helping out more with the house and between he and I the house has stayed clean laundry done for the past 4 days or so. Today I am working on the May bills and going to crochet after that. May you all have a blessed rest of your week

Its early for me and its quiet in the house. getting my spark done for the day. Then on to things like a shower, and to paint my fingers and toes. Then putting actual clothes on, and maybe even some make up. will have a nap at some point and am going to crochet. And will put vegetable soup in the crock pot for dinner and later make grilled cheese for dinner. Am going to have a stress free day

For the first time in a long while, I was able to relax and enjoy spring break!! I can't wait until summer vacation!! I have exercised every day this week. Being off from work has made everything easier. I hope I can keep this positive thinking up next week when I return to work!!

Good morning, team.

There are some changes coming to the Spark Team pages next week. The main one is that the huddle is going away and there will now be a "wall" for posting on the main page.

Here is a short video that describes the changes:

Lots of stress this morning. I knew I had a dental appt. and thought it was at 11:00. Got up about 9:20 & checked email only to find my Yahoo reminder that the appt was at 10:00.. Started to get ready to rush out of the house only to find that the lighter dressing the home nurse had put on DH's ankle had come off during the night. So replace that, make a list of a couple other errands I needed to run while out.. Fortunately, traffic was light & I got to the dentist's office with a few minutes to spare, got my teeth cleaned & checked (that's always a bit stressful to start as I have a very active gag reflex), ran the errands & got home. That's when I found that DH was running out of pain pills for his ankle and the prescription had to be picked up from the doctor's office instead of being called in. Thank goodness I checked what pills I had left over from the two knee replacements as I had over a dozen of the same pills left over. So deep breathing, taking a pause and writing this because I don't have to drive down to the hospital..

A little anxious today, meeting with some old friends I haven't seen since high school. The last time I saw most of them I was the 'little' one. 95 lbs and easily the smallest one in the group. I gained all this weight after having a hysterectomy when I was 45. Getting nervous about seeing them today.

Feeling good about yourself is one way to overcome anxiety and stress. We must stop beating ourselves up be proud of who we are and what we can do.

I just realized, Easter was the first stress free holiday we have had in a long while! We rented the clubhouse where I live, Made a menu, assigned dishes and everyone brought something. It was wonderful, to rush to cook or clean for company, the burden did not fall all on one person. It was lovely and I didn't overeat!

Just this week I realized that my chronic pain and physical limitations were stressful. I thought of stress as asudden calamity, not a chronic pressure. Once I realized that yes I really did have stress affecting my life I was able to come up with a plan to deal with it.

goal is to be able to walk again
