It is October, but I don't see an October chat, so I hope I posting in the right place, hee hee.

What a beautiful weekend I had with my sister and BIL. They just left about 1/2 hour ago. Of course, it's always sad when she leaves and I know I won't be seeing her for another 7 months, but I am truly happy for her and her lifestyle. She is lucky!!! She has a wonderful husband and they are both in health. I can only hope that when I retire I am as good as them.

After they left, I did my 1/2 hour exercise on my bike, started my laundry, and now I am ready to catch up on my SP.

Hope everyone has a wonderful serene Sunday!

Estelle

Went to the gym, rode exercise bike for 40 mins. Went to track & walked for 20 mins. I like walking outside better than on treadmill if it's cool enough. Went to eat lunch with DH.

Now starting on mama's room.

Wow, already Friday.

My sister and BIL are coming to spend the night today and tomorrow with us. It will be the last time we see each other as we are leaving for vacation next week and they are leaving for Malaysia for the winter while we will be away. We will be able to Skype though, so that's good. Looking forward to our time together. Tonight my husband is making his famous lasagna with garlic bread and salad dinner.

Picked up our RV and the fridge was not able to be fixed. We need a new fridge, but I've decided to wait till next year to get that. For now, it gets cold for sometime and then gets a bit warmer which will work fine for our trip. The freezer works perfectly. I only buy my food on a daily basis usually and if needed, I'll buy some meats and freeze them.

Hope everyone has a great healthy weekend!!!!

Good morning,

Sitting here drinking coffee. Umm! So good. Got DH off to work.

Just checking to say hi. I'm going to lay back down a little while.

Going to try to get to the gym this morning. So much going on & keeping up the house makes hard to get to gym. But that is what I'm committing to today.

Have a great day!

Good morning everyone:

I'm very happy with my maintenance. I started my TOM this week, I ate well by having no treats or junk food and I exercised my 1/2 hour regularly and the scale was nice to me this morning. I lost 2.3 lbs emoticon .

Today, I am going for my last 3 hour appointment at the dentist to get my permanent crown put in this morning and then I am working the rest of the day from home. I love that idea, hee hee. Hopefully, we will also pick up our RV with a fixed fridge today.

Life is good and this week has been excellent! Hope everyone has a great day.

Estelle

The church is giving DH a Pastor's Appreciation & Birthday party Sat. We have some people coming from out-of-town he doesn't know about. That part is a suprise. LOL! It's hard to keep a party for the pastor a suprise when your having it at church & he lives in the yard.

It is dark & thundering here but hasn't started raining yet. I wish it would rain without lightening & wind. I would sit on porch & read.

going for a walk with sparkfriends from my local team this morning!

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

Good morning everyone:

I didn't get to go golf yesterday emoticon . We got to the golf course and found out there were no golf carts available. My friends could not walk the course as one has a cane and the other one had a really bad bronchitis attack. We have made plans to either go later this week or mid-week next week before I leave on vacation. Either way, even if they don't come, I will definitely be going as I have to use my coupon before we leave on vacation.

I ended up by doing my 1/2 hour of treadmill after supper seeing I didn't get any other exercise during the day. I didn't really feel like it, but I did anyway, hee hee. I felt good after.

It was a very good weekend of eating. No junk food, WOOHOO. Today, I have a cottage cheese and tuna mixture for lunch. First time I try that one and hopefully it will sustain me until supper.

Hope everyone has a great day and a great week!!!!

Estelle

Good morning everyone:

I'm happy it's finally Friday. This week seems to have dragged on. I guess wanting to get to my vacation time is making the days longer plus it's been quiet again at work which makes for a long day.

Going golfing this Sunday, so I'm looking forward to that. Otherwise, housecleaning and relaxing are on our agenda.

Thanks for the tip Frannie.

Hope everyone has a good Friday!!!!!!!


Estelle

Since JLBAKE is traveling I thought it might be a good time for a vacation tip! First and foremost, enjoy yourself, you can still eat! Try planning meals ahead, if you know what is available (many restaurants have menus online now) you can plan accordingly. Don't let a vacation derail exercise, plan some walking tours, go swimming, find a hotel with a workout room. There are a number of ways to stay fit while having a great vacation!

Went to church this morning to clean. Most of the Ladies were there. It only took about 45 mins with all of us. :)

May go to the gym after lunch.

Now what for lunch?

Isn't the body a funny machine? Thursdays have been my weigh in days for the past 1.5 years. This morning as usual, I get on my scale and I've gained 2 lbs. The same 2 lbs. that I lost last week. The difference is that my clothes are fitting really good, my stomach looks smaller than it ever did and I was so sure I had lost some.

I'm not unhappy because I feel good. I'm a little too close to goal number for comfort, but I am still below.

The treats have probably caught up with me from last weekend, but I also know that ate well the rest of the week, I exercised every day as I should have, so I have nothing to feel bad about.

Have a great day everyone!!!!!!!!

Estelle

It's already hump day and the week seems to be going by quickly. I've been doing really good this week. My clothes are loose and I feel great.

Hopefully our RV will be fixed today and we will be able to go pick it up. They keep on running into problems emoticon

Hope everyone has a great healthy happy day!!!!

Yep, it's that time of year where I get up in the morning and I have to go to another closet to get my "fall/winter" clothes as the weather has changed and the summer clothes just don't cut it anymore.

I put on pants this morning that I wore last winter and they are loose. I think that I have been shaping up even though my weight is pretty well the same as it was last winter. I'm happy. It makes me feel good that all my hard work is paying off and my self-esteem is so good right now.

My RV saga continues though. As the mechanic fixed one brake line, the other two corroded brake lines let go, so more repairs needed. This is costing us a fortune which my DH and myself are not very happy about. I am staying positive though and saying that it is better it be done before we leave on our trip and hopefully that now everything will be done and changed, next year, no monies will be needed to change anything.

Hope everyone has a great healthy day!!!!

Estelle

Thanks for the tips! I agree on the trying new foods. I've found that I like avocados, black beans, tomatoes, peas, and green beans, all because I was willing to try them again!

I'm hesitant on the beets, but I'd even try them again!

Well, mom left this morning with my sister headed to Wy.

I went to church to do bookwork, to town to take care of business, came home & tried to take a nap since I had been up since 5am this morning, but couldn't sleep.
Cooked supper & went to WI.

WI wasn't good tonight. Gained 0.4#. Oh, Well. Maybe it will be better next week.

I'm so tired. Maybe tomorrow I can take a rest day. Last week was busy getting mom ready, today first of week church work.

I'm going to call it a night.

Talk tomorrow.

Estelle, I found out that I liked fresh beets roasted! I would never eat beets and still don't like the pickled beets you find in the store. But fresh beets roasted are delish!

Frannie: Loved your tips and I can completely relate to them.

I used to say that exact thing about breakfast and never ate it. For the last 1.5 years and for the first time in my life, and it doesn't make hungry but revs up my metabolism and energizes.

I never ate turnip cooked before. A few weeks back, my sister made some not knowing that I didn't eat it (except raw). I decided to try a forkful from my husband's plate. Guess what? I absolutely LOVED it and I ate lots. Taste buds have definitely changed as I have tried more food that I never thought I would try since being on this healthy eating plan.

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well. I wanted to give you guys a couple more tips to help you get through this.

Tip 1: Eat breakfast. I know, many of you are groaning right now. Some of you will claim it makes you eat more. Hog wash! Breakfast is just that, it breaks your nights fast. It helps to get your metabolism going in the morning. You just have to get used to it. Breakfast needs to be a high protein, high fiber meal. Eggs are of course a great source of protein and with whole grain toast you have a perfect breakfast. You can also make smoothies with greek yogurt and fruit! Good protein and fiber, plus it is very tasty. There are many cereals now that are higher in protein. Take a look around and make breakfast a habit!

Tip 2: Taste new foods, taste foods you think you don't like. Your taste buds change over the years, and many of us decide we don't like something and never taste it again! You may find you like foods you previously disliked. Also by tasting foods over and over again, you can learn to like them! When you are trying to get healthy you want to focus on those really nutrient dense foods and many people believe they don't like a lot of those foods. Give it a try, eat something new today!

I hear you on treats Snug! I wanted something on Friday night so we went to the frozen yogurt shop. It may be more expensive than hitting the store, but it keeps me having leftovers in the freezer!

Good morning everyone:

I have finally realized that I cannot buy a lot of treats and keep them in the house. I still have no willpower when it comes to eating junk food of any type. I still had a box of Pringles and a chocolate bar left over from Saturday. I had put them away saying that I would keep them for next weekend. As I was watching TV last night, I went to get them and ate it all

Do I feel guilty? Yes, a little just because I did it two days in a row. Am I worried? Nope, if I gain this week I definitely know why Have I learned something? Yes. I am allowed treats, but don't keep lots in the house be cause I will eat them all.

Hope everyone who reads this has a wonderful start to their week!!!!

Estelle

Good morning everyone!

Yep, I had treats yesterday. I had some pringles and a DQ Chocolate Avalanche. I do not feel guilty at all though for the first time because I know that I am allowed to have treats once in a while as long as it is not on a daily basis. I exercised and had a full day yesterday too, so that's good.

Today, I plan on exercising after breakfast and relaxing while watching my Nascar Race.

Hope everyone has a great serene Sunday!!!!

I went to the doctor and physical therapist today. I got my aircast/ankle brace and the doc said I'm healing well. My physical therapist says I'm improving so much that I may not have to do all of my therapy appointments! Yay!

I did 3 miles this morning on my walk and 30 minutes of strengthening exercises at therapy.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Good morning,

A fast run through again. Headed back to Hattiesburg for mom.

I haven't been able to read post the past few days. Maybe after mom is on her way to WY I can catch up.

Hopefully I'll BBL.

Woohoo it's Friday. I am going to the dentist first thing this morning for a 3 hour appointment to get a crown replaced. Then I am off camping for the weekend.

I hope that I can stick to my plan of not over indulging in bad foods and getting a lot of exercise in. Usually I relax a lot while camping. I still get my walks and biking in, but not as intense or long as usual. Time will tell if I can do better this go around, hee hee.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll be back on Sunday!!!!!

Hey Snug! Your thoughts seems right on to me. You can do it!

RBUCKLEY2--Good job on doing the treadmill and the biking! Keep going!

Happy Wednesday to everyone!

I did another 3 miles this morning at the track and my stairs are getting easier to do. So I think I may try my old walking route tomorrow (with hills). I can shorten it if needed. I'm going strong with my food logging, water, freggies, and protein!

Good morning:

I have been thinking for the last couple of days. I have doubled my exercise in a sense, but I do not feel like I have lost. Tomorrow's weigh in will tell. I also don't feel like I've gained though. I would like to get back down to 132 lbs. where I feel more comfortable in having that leaway from my goal.

So what did my thoughts bring:

1. Keep on doing the exercises
2. Cut down on my lunch as I believe I am eating way too much for lunch
3. Keep drinking my water
4. My proteins have been good, so lets see if that stays the same if I cut down my lunch.
5. This new way of living is for a lifetime, and I have to learn to not let it take up so much room in my head. That's definitely not healthy.

Hope I can do the above and be happy.

Hope everyone has a good hump day!!!!!!!!!! I know I will no matter what

Estelle

Yep, JL I did get to use my treadmill yesterday. I watched the news while doing the 30 minutes, so at least I had something to watch. I'm thinking of reading too while I walk, but I'll have to make sure I have good balance first, LOL. Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats on walking and I'm happy you got the approval from your doctor. Always better to be on the safe side of things and ask emoticon

I saw one of my doctors and one of my physical therapists yesterday. They were both very happy on my improvement on my ankle and leg! I told them that some people were concerned about my walking, but they both said that the walking I'm doing is helping me heal faster and to keep it up. This morning I put in a little over 3 miles at just over 21 min pace. I was so happy! This is the longest and fastest I have done since breaking my leg over 2 months ago. Woohoo!

SNUG & SAC--Glad you had good visits with family!

SNUG--Did you try out the treadmill yesterday? I love walking, but I get bored on my treadmill (even though it's right in front of the tv!

Back from visiting the grandchildren. Ate out almost all of last week, way over calories but I logged them. Time to eat less!

Yep, already Monday. Where did the weekend go??????

I didn't sleep very well last night as I woke up every hour on the hour. I almost stayed home to play hookie, but decided against it.

I bought a new treadmill yesterday and I am so anxious to try out the program tonight. My plan is to do the treadmill and my 10 minutes of elliptical after supper. That way I won't lay on the couch and sleep, hee hee.

I had a wonderful weekend of visiting with my sister on Saturday and going for a walk with my SP friends yesterday. The weather was wonderful and warm! It is suppose to be like that today too, so planning on doing a walk at lunch time too.

Hope everyone has a good Monday and a great week!!!!!

Estelle

Good morning.

Had a busy weekend. Will be busy all this week.

My mom has lived with me for almost 2 years since my sister moved to WY. Now they've got it up for her to go to WY for 2 months. I don't know if I like that. When I became her caregiver I felt the responsibility heavily. I feel like I did when my kids went off. Plus I've never been a loner. With her gone I will be by myself most of the time. DH has to work so much. She will be leaving this weekend.

Oh well, I better run. I have a lot to do: getting her doc app, meds filled, packed & whatever else she comes up with. But that's ok because I will be lonesome for 2 months.

Sorry to be missing this week! Busy, busy, busy + 3 team challenges + a major power outage has made it difficult to post on all my teams.

I'm still logging my food, drinking my water, exercising, and doing my physical therapy. Hope everyone is doing well!

Good morning everyone: Well, I've gained 1.8 lbs. this week, but I'm still below goal and I am not fretting or upset about it. I know that last weekend's treats and yesterday's supper did me in. It will be gone by next week and my pants still fit good, so what more can a girl ask for, hee hee.

Saw my dr. and he gave me creams for my nose and said my spot on my leg was nothing. Offered to burn it off, but said it wasn't cancer, so I said no. Why should I worry about it because it doesn't bother me. I will watch it closely though in case it ever changes.

I have a work picnic today, so my eating will definitely not be up to par. I don't know what people put in their dishes, but that's okay because it's usually my treat day on Thursdays. Tomorrow is another day.

Hope everyone has a great healthy day!!!!

Estelle

Good morning. Another beautiful day today. 56* & clear. emoticon

This kind of weather makes me want to be outside doing something like shopping. LOL! emoticon

Well, I don't want to be shut up in the house doing house work. Shopping is more fun than working in yard. LOL! emoticon

Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning everyone: I was happy that the suit/pants that I am wearing are fitting more comfortably than a few weeks ago. It's amazing how the stomach expands and changes on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. I never realized how much before I lost the weight because I was quite comfortable wearing track pants and stretchy pants, hee hee. Now I love my fitted pants and suits. As a matter of fact, I believe I even need to get more for the coming winter months which always makes me happy that I now fit in a size 6 or 8. I took a size 12 before and even that was getting tight. It is fun to see the changes and keep them going.

Have a happy healthy day everyone!!!!

Estelle

RBUCKLEY2, learning not to eat it is often temporary, we almost always give in eventually, it is learning to eat the right amount. A slice of pizza with a salad is certainly a good meal. 3 or 4 slices of pizza are too much. That is one of the biggest things I have learned here. I can eat pizza, it is not the pizza but how much!

We had some heavy rain last night but nothing real bad. It's still rain up a storm though. LOL! (sorry for the pun. I couldn't resist).

I had pizza last night again. Weigh 5 lbs more this morning. Ugh!!! One day I'm going to learn not to eat it. I HOPE!!!

I agree with Frannie! Sleep is essential to good health and to your weight loss. There are many people who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea who have not had it checked and treated, so if you are having problems with your sleep, do talk to your doctor about it!

SAC190, my mom's name is Rose and I do appreciate any prayers!

JLBAKE, thanks for the thoughts, it helps knowing people have been there and got through it. I am hoping that it will not be too much for my kids. With the chemo we hope she will have many months with us, without they said probably a month.

Okay, since I have been very lax I am going to give you another tip today. Sleep!!!! If you are having trouble sleeping it may be time to have a talk with your doctor. I have found it is true that when I don't sleep enough I have cravings, and all the wrong kind. I work hard at getting enough sleep, although us older ladies tend to have issues with hot flashes and such! I can definitely tell when I am sleep deprived. My SIL has narcolepsy and I have learned so much about how essential sleep is because of that. There are some amazing articles here on SP and also all over the internet for tips on how to sleep well. Again, if this is a major issue it is time to discuss it with your doctor.

Thanks everyone!

CROOKEDLETTER--Great job on being down 10 lbs! Woohoo! Glad you are feeling better! Sending speedy vibes your way to help you get down to a 9 min/mile.

FRANNIEDID--That's so hard! Sending you strength and vitality to help you care for your mom! Caring for my mom at the end of her life is a very precious memory for me. It was hard, but worth it! Thanks for the health tips too! I have a frozen fruit smoothie every day. And I keep vegan chocolate mouse in the freezer when I want "ice cream." It's made with avocados and my kids love it!

RBUCKLEY2--Sorry you are feeling icky! Hope your recovery is quick!

Frannie what is your dear Mom's first name? Will be glad to pray for her. Mine is 87 and getting a bit forgetful. We have to do a lot for her too but for now she can still live in her apt.

Morning!

Ughhhh!!!!! I woke up feeling worse this morning. Thanks Dr. Frannie. LOL! I'll take your advice.

I love frozen fruit. That's what I ate for breakfast this morning.

It's raining here but no wind yet. We're under tornado watch.

JLBake ,7 plus pounds in a month, that is awesome!

SAC190 way to go!

RBuckley, take care of yourself, drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest (my bill will arrive tomorrow!)

Life has been hectic, taking care of mom is going to be quite a challenge, I hope I am up to it. She is quite ill and understandably not doing well mentally right now. Learning you have stage 4 lung cancer and becoming totally dependent on other people in the space of a month is so hard. Please remember her in your prayers!

Now for a new tip (I have been a bit lax with my tips, hope you guys forgive me). Often sweets are one of our biggest challenges. I love to freeze fruit, some of it is just good to eat frozen, like grapes. Some of it blended with bananas makes a ice cream like treat! Strawberries and bananas frozen and then blended together are delicious!!! If you are a chocolate freak like me you can add some of those mini chocolate chips to your bowl. It is healthy and yummy!

And for exercise. Most of us don't get in strength training, that is hardest for me. Keep some hand weights near you so that when you watch TV you can get in some upper body! I have 2 sets of hand weights in my living room and I try to remember to pick them up when I am sitting doing nothing.

Congrats to JLBake for the 7 plus pounds lost in August and to SAC190 for such a great first month. RBuckley, I hope you feel better soon. I had a horrible cold for two weeks (I'm at the very end of it now). I found that except for the very worst days, when I couldn't exercise, that doing mellow cardio (normally I do interval training) in the form of walks lifted my spirits.

Despite family vacation and being sick for two weeks, I've lost close to 10 pounds. I'm going to focus on my running this month. My goal is to do a 9 min/mile by the end of the year.

I'm down 7.4 lbs from the beginning of August. Yay!

RBUCKLEY-- Hope you feel better soon! If your cold isn't too bad, you could do a little bit of exercise, like a short walk. Sometimes, it even helps you feel better.

SAC190--Good job on the first month results! emoticon
