Isn't it nice to have a friend to talk to Jeanne?! Sounds like you are doing really well; keep up the great work!

I'm made it to my first Zumba class today at the local gym I joined. It was definitely a challenge but I didn't stop moving and I went out soaking wet from sweat, yay!

Happy Sunday evening all!

Hey all! I reached out and told a friend everything that was going on in detail and she really helped me through it all! I have done great on food the last 2 days! I feel like myself again! I thank God that He put my friend in my road for me to lean on! Between her and my other SP friends and DH, I finally got my emotions under control! WooHoo! I love feeling like I am back in charge of ME!

Thank you so much Terri! I will think on what you said and take it to heart! I have said about the same to people but it's so much easier to tell others what to do than it is yourself!

Jeanne, the things we do that make us ashamed (mistakes, sins, offenses..whatever they are to you) can only beat you down when left unconfronted. I always tell my kids and grands that the only sin that can hold you in bondage is the one you don't bring into the light. So, if you've done all of that and other people have forgiven you (or excused you or "given you a pass") then it seems like you are allowing the memory of the thing to abuse you. I do understand about having memories that I wish I didn't have--plenty of them--but they are all in the past, never to be repeated (that's very important) and they actually give me motivation to try to help others avoid the same mistakes.

Good counselors aren't necessarily the ones who have avoided all errors; rather, they are the ones who have learned from them and who have developed skills and gained wisdom to now steer others away from them. Whenever you are under the cloud of your past, remember to tell yourself that you can CHOOSE to walk out from under it into the light. Gratitude is a huge spirit lifter. Be grateful for the people who are not holding it against you, grateful for the chance to make better decisions and even to one day be the one who offers grace to someone else who screws up.

Have a wonderful day!

Okay folks a real tough one here: I am in the midst of a setback and slogging my way through it! I'm telling you emotions are a bear! I thought I was done dealing with some crap from my past only to have it rear it's ugly head once again! This morning after a binge, I decided to tackle it head on and take it out and re-visit the situation totally. Without getting into specifics, I'd like to ask a question. How do you all deal with a bad mistake you have made in the past? Everyone has given me a pass on it and forgiven me but I can't seem to let it go. Can't forgive myself. I keep falling back on the fact that if people were holding it against me then I could get defensive and deal with it. That is my fall back position. The only person that's holding it against me is me and the defenses are not working any more.

SPARKLINGME176 ..... What an amazing outlook! WAY TO THINK my friend! emoticon

Terri ..... I can understand the weak feelings and I just know you will get stronger and so will I! I just started walking in the park and I can only manage 1 time around with 3 stops along the way. emoticon

Nancy ..... What a blessing to help your seniors! emoticon


They say rain starting late this evening. We need the rain for sure but I also know that my knees will be suffering for it emoticon Looks like my walking will have to be early today!

Wow that is one big sweet potato! I hope you enjoy it!

Supposed to snow here tomorrow - kind of a bummer since it means grey skies again. However I know we need the moisture for the summer!

Well, we are on the brink of mid-week already.
January is about over & done. Won't be long.

It was a good day for me food wise. At the
low end but I still have a small snack to go.
But I'll stay on track.

Check my blog for a great photo of my 2 pound
sweet potato. It will last 4 meals or more, depending
on what I decide to eat carb wise.

Weather was damp & overcast most of the day. Needed
to keep a light sweater on. But it didn't rain.

I had to drive 89 miles over 2 trips to take a gentleman
to dialysis and go back 5 hours later & pick him up.
I drive for seniors. He's my Tuesday run. I have to get
up at 5AM and that is difficult. BUt I think to myself, he has
5 hours of dialysis 3 x a week so why should I complain?
Perspective sure helps!

Hope you all are having a great day.

Stay positive and make "Conscious Decisions"

Trying to keep up with the 5% challenge and work in some of Nicole's shorter videos. Plantar Fasciitis keeps me from doing too much walking right now, but trying the strength training videos is showing me how weak I've become.

I use the Nike commercial saying all the time...... Just Do It when it comes to working out! I am a paradox. I missed working out when I was benched but yet I still have to get myself going to get the workouts in.

Well I am down 1.3 pound since Friday. emoticon

I am in the process of switching my weight in days back to Monday. It's just to confusing for me to be on a different W I day from everyone else including my daughters. I am VERY happy with the one pound loss!

(BUT)

I also had some NSV this week with my blood work results......

I went down 27 points in my CHOL, down 131 in my TRIG, and down 4 points in my GLUCOSE emoticon

So I am happy with my bodies progress this week and I can see where I still have work to accomplish! It's a win / win! emoticon

GOD is good my friends! emoticon

SP friends and Team Mates are awesome! emoticon

SHERYL..... How are you feeling? emoticon

2BDYNAMIC ..... Go for it, I would love to see the research on electrolytes if you have the time! TY! emoticon

BARBIE042 ..... Those are some very smart words! The longer I sit around doing my computer work the worse pain I have in the evenings and the LESS likely I am to walk or anything else of an evening...... emoticon

Good Monday Morning !

Had a good weekend on my end , I was a little sluggish on Saturday . But never let it stop me ... I managed to do the elliptical 30 minutes both Saturday and Sunday plus ride the bike each day for 52 minutes total of 32 miles this weekend .

I find it is best to know I got to workout and not think about it ...... Just Do It !!!!

Because if you tend to set around thinking about it you will find excuses not to . So my advice Just Get Up Do It ! You Will Feel Better About Yourself Afterwards !

Have Fabulous Monday !

Very interesting info ladies-----thanks for pointing this out.
One more thing in regard t flushing out electrolytes ............ It is not a good thing to drink down a glass of water or more with meals .............. It can literally flush out enzymes and electrolytes and interfere w/ digestion. (Might be a good blog for someone?) emoticon

BITTERBLONDE ..... I have a very bad habit of drinking OVER my daily allowance. The doctor advised me to drink 1/2 my body weight in ounces each day. I weight 333 so I drink 166.5 ounces of water each day.

The problem is...... I actually drink way more than that. It's so bad emoticon

I didn't realize what I was doing until I got a large water from the drive thru and used it for one entire day. I didn't change my habits that day so I could see how much I usually consumed each day. Each time I filled it I made a mark on the side. Then at the end of the day I added up the ounces emoticon OPPS! NOT A GOOD THING!

I was washing out all my electrolytes! emoticon

So now I have been doing the marked cup technic everyday and really paying close attention to my fluids. To much is just as bad as not enough. I never would have known if I hadn't tested myself.

There are also natural foods that work as diuretic's. I do NOT know YOUR circumstances or your health and I am NOT a professional or even trained in health issues but I have listened to my physician and did a lot of research. I also have an incredible coach! emoticon

PLEASE talk to your doctor and work with him/her to find a good level place for YOUR body and to help you get rid of the excess fluids. emoticon

Deb - It's so terrific that you did not ease your stress by really going for the food! Maintaining during times of high stress is so hard to do when you are used to using food as a security blanket! Great going my friend!

Barbie - Great job on your exercise! I admire anyone who can do the elliptical for that amount of time. I struggle with just 2 minutes at a time!

Had my appointment with my pain management doc today. Told him I'm doing great after those injections! Getting ready to workout as soon as lunch settles. Yoplait started making yogurt with sucralose! I am totally stoked since I'm allergic to aspartame! I had a raspberry cheesecake flavored yogurt for a tasty treat with lunch! You can't beat it for 90 calories a serving!

Here's hoping everyone has a terrific afternoon!

Barb - So glad they are okay!

I'm hurting from steroid injections in the spine that I had this morning. Not so much from the actual process but from the amount of fluid they put in there and the body doesn't like extra! I will be fine in a couple of days but then I have the darn hunger from the steroids to contend with. Bah! Oh well I'll feel great in a week or less and that's worth a lot!

Hello emoticon 's

Just stopping is to wish Everyone , a Happy & Fitness Filled Monday emoticon emoticon

Hubby and Son had a icy commute to work this morning , they went up one hill from our house and ended up facing back towards the house . They went to shift gears and the truck took off with them and headed towards the side ditch . Thank God it went that direction , had it went the other way they would have went over a very steep bank and down into a small creek/run . And they had chains on to and it is four-wheel drive , goes to show you that nothing helps when your on pure ice . But when they made it to the main highway the treatment they used on it had the ice melted , so the rest of the way was ok . Praise God !

Well after lunch I got to get to my bike riding and walking in place .

Make Today Awesome !

My toe is feeling so much better this morning and not even half as red as yesterday! YAY! God is so good!!!!! emoticon

Both of our daughters joined SP last week and they just had their first weight in's .....I am so proud of them but I am going to be forced to kick them in the knee! emoticon Just kidding!

Deb - that is okay..... a rose by any other name would smell as sweet!

I did not get any down time today until now because DH decided he wanted to go dresser shopping. First piece of furniture he has ever suggested we replace so I went willingly with him! emoticon We picked out two high boy dressers to go on either side of the room! Now he just has to go and pick them up while I stay on and spark!

I need to apologize to everyone about my name change......

Somehow when I added my SP account to my tablet, it took over the name NEWTEXDEBBIE and has changed my name on my lap top account to this new one NEWSPARKDEBBIE.......

I am truly sorry but until I can figure out how to fix the situation I will be remaining as NEWSPARKDEBBIE.

Know that I will be the same Debbie, just under this new name!

I know how waking up in pain goes. It can be especially bad when you need to change position , but you can't. Sleep is so essential to healing and losing weight. Good luck to you.

Well, 3 of us are up and about.

Good Morning everyone!

Happy Sunday to you All.

Going to be laid back today. Just a short trip to the store.
I was out about 12 hours yesterday. Time to sit back
and regroup.

YAY Sheryl! You slipped in to say hi..... emoticon

The thunderstorms rolled in about 6:30 this morning and I gave up on getting anymore sleep. Now I'm counting on the coffee to supply me with a morning boost of energy that I can stay awake in church with. We sit close to the front so dozing off during the service can get a little embarrassing! emoticon emoticon

I am feeling optimistic and a little hungry but I have learned to welcome that small hunger feeling because I always seem to lose weight during that time. No complaints about that for sure! emoticon

Hope you all had a happy Saturday?

Mine was being out from 9AM till 8:30 PM except
home for 30 min to ice my hip & back out to church.

Took an old friend from an assisted living to lunch today.
We had a good time. They we drove past the place he
used to live and he sold it, then we went to the beach,
by the ocean and sat in the sun for a bit. Saw a nice
little wedding on the beach. IT was chilly and unfortunately
very windy. We could not hear them as they were closer
to the water. we were on the boardwalk, but everyone was
so happy & loving.
I pray they maintain and remember this day when hard
times come, not if!

Not a lot planned for tomorrow. Tomorrow will take care of
itself.

Have a safe weekend and remember to do something nice for
you, something nice for someone else & something nice
for humanity.

@ SHERYLP461 I'm glad to hear you are on the mend and staying positive.

It's so very bitterly cold here in Ohio. I'm grateful for my Y membership so I can walk without freezing anything important off.

Sheryl - Thanks for the update. I too am glad the pain is getting better. Also very glad the surgery was a success.

35 here. Supposed to get to 51 but it needs to hurry up if it's going to actually do it because soon we'll be on the flip side of the day! DH got a call out again. Boy is that getting to be annoying! We have to sleep w/his work phone always on the bedside table and it very often rings in the middle of the night. There are 3 other technicians who do the same thing but DH is on call 24/7 anyway! We can never plan anything. If we go out to dinner, we are often interrupted by the phone and then have to finish quickly so he can go! His normal work week is 60 hours and he usually works 70 - 80 and this has been going on for over a year and a half now! Okay I seriously did not mean to rant! I don't usually gripe that much but I wanted today for us!

Wow Sheryl, I was watching for an update too...... I'm glad it's getting a little less painful.

It's 36 here and I contemplated staying in bed with my lap top today but alas...... I got up and got moving emoticon but is was very warm under those covers! emoticon

Day 5 and I am pumped today!
I woke up VERY hungry for a change but a good breakfast and warm coffee will get that under control. Now if I could warm up it would be amazing!

TeddyBear, I am a Ft Pierce native and a 5th generation Floridian. My DH says I should be on the endangered species list.

Jeanne, I thought I did post, but anesthesia gets me befuddled. Surgery was Monday very painful, but much less pain since yesterday. Dr said it went well. Theropy next Wed, and another cast, They had me doing things with my fingers before I was out of recovery. I think my arm is professing well,

We had freezing rain last night with a coating of snow making it very slick out! We are getting to 32 today but 51 tomorrow! Colorado is definitely a state where if you don't like the weather, hang around for 15 minutes and it will change! emoticon

Good morning everyone! I hope to get some moving in today. Day four into getting my butt back in gear went well. I made it up to 800 calories. I have energy and I'm not hungry. I haven't heard back from the bariatric program yet, but it's right after the holidays. I'll call Monday.

Nancy - I know that because you have warmer weather most of the time the "higher" low temps feel much cooler to you! 46* is a veritable heat wave for us right now here in CO! I had to get a cap with ear coverings to keep my poor ears from freezing this year! But the sun is shining today and my mood is terrific!

Good Morning everyone. It's a might bit chilly here in FL
on the east coast.It's 46 deg at 9AM. Not fun for us.
I know it's much colder in other places. Hope you are keeping
warm.

Have a beautiful, Blessed, Spark kind of day!

Good Morning Team!

It's dipping in the teens tonight and the wind has really picked up. Wind advisory through the evening.... Buuurrrrrr!

I am so glad to see old faces popping back in and new faces showing up! This is really going to be a great year!


I was so excited yesterday! emoticon

We restarted with one of our old food diet plans and me and hubby did fantastic all day!


We, DH & I, went to bed last night and didn't even mumble the S word (snacks)!

Tee Hee! emoticon

I averaged 1165 in calories and wasn't hungry...... The last time I followed this food plan I could barely hit the 1000 calorie mark because I just wasn't hungry and dropped 21 pounds in 24 day's. DH did better but he can sneeze and drop a pound.

Hi to all my spark friends. I have been out of touch for awhile. I have to borrow my husband's laptop when he isn't on it (never lol) as mine crashed. I hope you are all doing well.

Good luck to you, Sheryl. I hope you are on the mend now.

I have been struggling with my exercise goals and my diet lately. I start out fresh each day but somehow blow it by evening. My blood sugar shows it too.

Tonight I made myself go for a walk for at least 15 minutes and I feel better. But I need to get back to my 10,000 steps a day and I need to lose at least 10 pounds to help with my diabetes. So here's to another day!
