Sheryl - I may look for one like that as well b/c I hate extensive clean up and even with the ones you can stick parts of in the dishwasher, i think it would be messy!

Love to grill, we do have a huge gas grill that I hate to fire up for two chicken breasts. I saw one that you use on top of your stove I think I am going to try to find. Looks like easy cleaning.

Donna, praying for you.

I have extreme trouble losing weight... it is hormonal, but in my case adrenal glands and not thyroid... and menopause... and diabetes.

TEXASLYNN .... US TOO! We have a small butane grill, a small charcoal grill, and a flat electric grill that we can use on any given day. It keeps the heat out of the kitchen and cooks so much more efficiently and quickly! LOVE IT...... After all, this IS Texas emoticon

Jeanne .... Yes, they sell them just about everywhere, especially at Walmart. They are more expensive but so worth the extra cost!
I quit using mine because of the clean up.... emoticon

Donna .... You are in my prayers today! It hurts so much to shift when you wake up and I get afraid to move because I fear how much it will hurt emoticon

Donna - You have my prayers as you know. You will be surprised at the difference in your weight loss journey once they hypothyroidism is under control! I was stuck, stuck, stuck until they upped my meds and got my numbers in the right range! Now I am able to lose with the proper nutrition and exercise! I know you have a lot going on so I just keep hoping you get much better!

So finally my MD is going to try treating me for hypothyroidism. It's been frustrating, because I have had a lot of the symptoms and my TSH has been high since March but my T4 has stayed within the normal range.Normally your T4 should fall below normal range with hypothyroidism, and they have been kinda waiting for that to happen. But with this last diverticulitis episolde, she thinks maybe we should try to treat it and see what happens. So I am praying it helps with the weight loss too, because I think I am at the height of frustration here. If you are the praying type, please pray it helps make a difference. Would be nice to sleep through a night without waking up because my arms, shoulders or hips hurt and need to be moved to a different position 4-5 times a night, or my forearms hurt from just laying on the bed, so I try to find different ways to prop them up so they don't hurt. emoticon

Debbie - Do you know if they have one that the grills come out like that somewhere? I would love to grill things but I don't want to clean up the grill either! I love things that I can just put in the dishwasher and forget about the hard work to clean them!

I'm treating myself to one of the electric Charbroil grills for outside as my Christmas present. I love to grill but not inside and here in East Texas the weather just generally doesn't get so cold the grill can't be fired up 12 months a year.

I had to go through that last month with diverticulitis. Now I am eating normally.
I don't have a foreman grill either, I just through the things in a pan on the stovetop.

Blue Jay, I like the grill now especially with eating ground meat, even though I buy the leanest I can, it sits at an angle and has a drip pan and all the fat runs down as it cooks so the meat doesn't sit in it. Believe me... the diet my doctor has me on, I need all the help I can get!!!! Every drop counts, LOL.

Awwwww sorry Dot....don't ya hate that. Want me to hit him over the head with those Nilla wafers for you????? emoticon I know how you feel, when my sister was home from Chicago, I finally got it sunk into her I am on a low fiber soft foods diet... ground meat, soft meats that does NOT mean crispy bacon on a BLT. I can't even have lettuce yet. So she went to the store and came home with all the "soft" Little Debbie Cakes she could find. Thanks a lot... I keep sending home a box every time my nephews come over...only they are like..we don't like those kind.
Next week they are going to the church food pantry, just wish I had thought of it this morning!!!!

I have everything I need to stay on track, but hubby request a german chocolate dump cake. Ok. I'm talking pecans, coconut, cream cheese, butter, etc. Yes, I had my share and hope it doesn't interfere with my weight loss. I will not begin to tell you all of the things he purchased including 2 boxes of vanilla wafers and every snack that he knows I have problem with. So, my resistance really need to kick in.

Because I rested for 3 days....healing left side, eye, etc. my weight is up again. I can't stand this. My commitment to myself is to keep weighing in, every day & not go into unconscious eating.(No matter what) I KNOW I am eating more than I am exercising. More in than out. I AM GETTING A REALITY CHECK! emoticon

Today I get to be 'myself'. Taking care of me & not so focused on DH. His wound Doctor said he can stop the nurses coming to house. I will help him with the newest treatment, cleaning etc. It is not so scary for me! (It's been 8 months to the day!) I'm off to walking LADY LUCY THE WOUNDEROUS CIRCUS DOG, Zumba, & trying to stay on track with salt & calories. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy hump day to my favorite teams! emoticon emoticon

Personally I fit right in with the same mental habits you just described for yourself. I also think that it would be a fantastic motivational tool for you AND for me as a team mate for you to share what you learn at your meetings!

Some people find their strength in helping others and that might just be your trigger this time..... I say GO FOR IT and by all means tell us what you learn! emoticon

I am grateful for this challenge and the support I'm getting from the team. Although I've finally made exercise an important part of my lifestyle, I have been struggling mightily with my nutrition. After sweating outrageously at the gym, I would stop at my favorite grocery store for a pint of ice cream and a giant cookie. After eating a nice slimming salad for dinner, I would grab a spoon and consume the entire pint of ice cream and cookie in front of my flat screen. Only the hard work I had put in at the gym kept me from gaining more weight than I did.

When it comes to my eating habits, it is difficult for me to find the intestinal fortitude required to make real changes. I need external motivation, and I found it with this challenge. Since I decided it would be important to be bombarded with positive reinforcement, I signed up for a class being offered by our park district called Building Healthy Habits. There are 15 one hour sessions starting next Tuesday, so, if desired, I can pass on whatever pearls of wisdom I'm able to glean. For me, the big selling point was learning about stopping yoyo dieting. A year ago I joined a gym and started working with a personal trainer twice a week. Along with changes to my eating regimen, I was able to drop 50 pounds. After welcoming all the cookies, candy, ice cream, cake, etc., back into my diet, I gained almost 20 pounds. This is something that has to stop. I'm getting too old for this. I'm 66 and don't want to be a crippled old lady.

For this challenge, I don't want to always be a taker. I want to give support and encouragement. I've managed to change my attitude about exercise, and I hope to do the same with my eating habits. I've been obese almost my entire life, so I've used food as a substitute for love, acceptance, companionship, etc. Food has been my crutch, and, when it's not there, I often get panicky. That's why there will always be a Snickers bar with my name on it. Finding something else to meet that emotional need is part of this challenge, so I'm in it until the end.

It's good to have you back Donna! Glad your sister was there while you were ill! Sorry no one bothered to feed you. I hope you get to 100% real soon!

Getting some new athletic shoes! DH agreed that I need some well cushioned athletic shoes so I ordered a pair in and we shall see how my joints do after that! I have been walking in flip flops and that cannot be good on the joints. I have a pair of sneakers but they are all purpose and not cushioned well at all so I am really looking forward to having that extra little something to pad my steps. Also the shoes I'm getting help you strike the ground with your feet placed the right way. Not on heel, not on toe but in the middle of the foot. I never before knew how much you really need to learn before you purchase a decent pair of athletic shoes!

Luckily on Tuesday I picked my sister up at the airport, she was in from Chicago and she just went back today so I was able to spend a few days in bed just resting between coughing fits, breathing treatments and tylenol doses. Bad thing is I slept ALOT and my family never woke me for any meals and I sure didn't feel like cooking so when I woke up it was kinda just snack on whatever I could find that was quick that fit the diet the MD has me on so I could curl up back under the covers. Doing better today.. No more fevers, just still a cough and doing breathing treatments when I need them, kinda limiting my exercising to short 10-15 min spurts. More than that and I can't really breathe because I am in a coughing fit. But glad to be feeling good enough to be out of bed! emoticon

Hi Everyone. I have been MIA with some depression but am feeling much better. When does next weeks challenge go up? I did a good job on my water but I usually have no trouble with that. On to better days. Nice to read that everyone is well and reasonably happy.

I just realized I am mixing 2 threads together here. SO much for being better. LOL I am kind of in zombie stage right now.



If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!

I suppose I had best just get used to getting up after 4 hours of sleep and having to go back to sleep later on to get the other 4 hours. Since I started SP I have really been trying to get my sleep in all in one shot but my back has other definite ideas about how that is NOT going to work. So I must adapt and learn that I can't re-program my entire life in one fell swoop!

I used SparkPeople and ate MORE naturally, in other words, less processed foods. I started by eliminating growth hormones, which can make cows fat (and thus the people who eat and drink from the cows fat) from meat and milk and buying organic. Talk to your doctor about anything I'm about to type next. It is only my opinion and I am writing from my experience.

The LESS Processed food in your diet, the thinner and less hungry you will be. Your appetite will drop like crazy when you get on more natural sources of food. Note: I say MORE and never ALL. ALL makes life a pain in the butt sometimes and can be very expensive, but it is something to strive fore.

Vitamin D is something people who have a lot of belly fat are low in, which has been shown in many scientific studies (see google), so I took it through my weight loss for seasonal affective disorder (depression from sun deprivation) and also because I have a lot of belly fat.

Cinnamon and Chromium 2000 mg cures a sweet tooth for me personally and is something that helps with my diabetes and helped me get off insulin. You can get it at any Walgreens or Walmart and it comes in a green bottle for around ten dollars. It helps with keeping blood sugar from spiking and seems to help me with my binging. I also took this throughout my weight loss and need to get back to it. It seems I plateau whenever I become lax with this one supplement.

B12 I took this throughout my whole weight loss in either shot or tablet form. It helps with energy and pairs well with the other B vitamins for balance, especially b6 and b1.

Protein- I like Nectar Sweets by Syntrax, which you can get on Amazon because it mixes well, isn't clumpy and tastes good. There are a variety of flavors and you don't have to drink 8 ounces at a time! 2 ounces can give you 24 grams of protein for 100 calories! Flavors include my personal faves: cookies and cream, fuzzy navel, double stuffed cookie, chocolate truffle, cappuccino, strawberry mousse, vanilla torte and more.

More tips to come at a later date. That's it for today. Have a great day!

I did it! Thanks to SPARKPEOPLE for making me realize dreams do come true! I graduated and am now a certified professional weight loss coach! I lost 240 pounds without weight loss surgery because of SPARKPEOPLE and dared to dream again. It turned my life completely around. I began moving and went from bedridden and lifting shampoo bottles in bed to walking. I went from lying in bed all day to a meaningful life. I went from disabled to a hopeful career. Thank you SPARKPEOPLE! If you're out there thinking your dreams won't come true, just start taking small, deliberate steps in the right direction. Don't wait for magical motivation. It's a myth and so is will power. Eating foods that don't tick of your body's hunger hormones is a great start. Try adding fruits, veggies, lean protein, whole grains, healthy fats, and water to your menu and the rest will fall to the side more naturally. ADD good habits to your life. The bad ones fall away.

Just found out today that someone I knew from church in Florida passed away from cancer that she has been battling for 2 years. She was a truly beautiful person both on the inside and out, she was on our worship team and other than using a stool to sit on, on her bad days you never would know anything was wrong with her, she was that type of person. She leaves behind a husband and 3 teenagers without a mother. It makes me wonder... sometimes with all I have gone through, why didn't God take me and let her live. I have no one who relies on me, no children I will miss seeing grow up, get married and have their own children. I have no husband who will grieve over not having a partner. I know we are not made to understand God and His ways are not ours, but it grieves me to know so many lives are hurting right now because she is not there with them, when it could have been so different. My family is not really close, so there's not really anyone who would really miss me... why cause so much pain within a family when it could be so different? Guess it's one of those things about God I'll never understand.

Hey, no worries about replying! Life happens!!!!

I am happy to report that I had a very celebratory day yesterday, on all accounts!! Woo hoo!

I'll think about the challenge..... like I said, the times when I've projected out weight loss goals have worked against me. When my body doesn't cooperate lie I want it to, I get discouraged and in the past, rather than adjust my goals, I just quit.

but I'm thinking about it...... I'm different now, right?

This is not a journey to weight loss; it is a journey about choosing life one day at a time.

How nice to see replies!!! Woot!!!

I am celebrating today in anticipation of my official weekly weigh in.... it should be a good one. I've worked very hard. I am also celebrating in anticipation of 2 books that I think will have some good nutritional/dietary advice/ideas in them..... if the USPS would just cooperate! LOL! Still, I anticipate receiving them soon, and that gives me lots of hope. I am also celebrating the anticipation of some chair exercise videos I ordered today! Again, just hoping the USPS cooperates!

AND, I am also looking forward to a weekly weight loss support group I go to (TOPS) on Wednesday mornings where the ladies are fun and hysterical and I love being around them..... tomorrow is our first meeting at a new meeting place. So that should be fun! However, even if the scale comes up with something different tomorrow than what I anticipate it will, then I'm still going to have a great day and just work harder for this next week.

So, lots of celebrating over this way!!!! How's everyone else doing?? I'm looking forward to getting to know my team mates, so we can cheer each other on!

Hi Team!

I haven't been active in any of my Spark Teams, but I'm finding that I sure could use some friends and an online Spark People support network if I'm ever going to get out of this scale vortex.

I'm interested in the challenge, but I'm afraid to put a goal like that in writing. My body seems to lose weight in its own time, so when I project a weight loss goal, it's never worked out for me. On the other hand, if I focus on nutrition and a little movement, and let the scale do what the scale wants to do, it seems to work better for me.

So, I'm here, looking for friends and connections.

Where was her stroke at Debbie? That is what I keep trying to find out from my doctors, if I will ever not have the dizziness, nausea and imbalance from the brainstem stroke. They keep telling me they can't say for sure. None of the doctors I have had have had brainstem stroke patients live or live and not be in coma like state... so they keep saying they can't tell me if this will always be my baseline or if it will improve.

It's just a recumbant exercise bike, by my bed, tends to make me dizzy so I need to rest afterwards, so I had to put it in a safe place for me since my strokes. But believe me, I do not want surgery, so I am being very very careful....thanks for the concern Sheryl. emoticon

DLYNN, keep an eye on what hurts, biking uses different muscles than walking, I couldn't understand why I could walk for miles and get tired biking around the block.

Nothing that will strain the abdomen,, but besides that as long as it doesn't increase my pain it's ok. If my pain starts increasing he wants me to slow back down. He said it will be kinda like an achilles heel for the next month or so. (He's worried about the inflamed pouches tearing with them already being weakened and then that would require surgery). Today I walked for 30 min and did ok. Only was able to 6 min on the bike though.

So I went to the Dr. for my diverticulitis follow up. I can now move from the liquid diet to a low fiber diet. Here is what is on my list
1. White bread, white potatoes and pastas only. NO grains, nuts, seeds, oats..
2. Soft fruits only, no cruncy fruits or fruit with skin, no cruciferous vegetables, no vegetables or other food items over 3 gms of fiber
3. Ground beef, veal, pork, other soft meats.
4. Eggs. Fiber NOT TO exceed 10 gms/day.
I have to follow this for the next month at least, longer if I am still having any intermittant pain periods.
I read it and was like OK... still determined to lose weight on it, not stopping me, just need to figure out the way!!!! emoticon

I'm packing down my water today..... emoticon WOW I feel full emoticon

The weather man reported a 2nd cold front coming down from the north headed our way. Of course it only slips us into the 70's during the morning and mid to high 80's in the afternoon but here in south Texas, WE'LL TAKE IT! emoticon

Have fun Covegirl and be careful.....

Beth .... I really wish I could make the rally's they sound like so much fun...... but until we can get ourselves on our feet financially and family issue wise, my fun will have to wait. Don't count me out forever though..... we might just jump in our RV and head that way when we are able too. Wouldn't that be funny! emoticon emoticon


Well my darling daughter is in the weight loss / healthy mood kick this morning.... I pray it works for her this time!

I have joined with miss Beth so I will see what 12 months brings me.... It's not like I'm not getting the extra exercise up and down my RV steps! emoticon

I just got to thinking this morning that God must have wanted me to go with the RV at this time in my life because while we were looking at different RV's my mind never ventured to the (what if my knees give out or my back starts to spasm) train of thought. I always think that way..... you know? I can't go there on vacation because it's to much walking.... I can't go to the zoo because it's to much walking ..... I can't go to the flower gardens because there might be stairs to climb emoticon .... but for some reason that never came to mind when we decided on the RV way of life.... curious huh?!

How wonderful Cathy, that is a huge milestone. FLUTTERBY, that would have me jumping for joy as I have never lost more than two pounds at once.

Well, I'm off to the Demonstration Garden at the State Fair for the last time this summer. I get off the shuttle quite a distance from the garden, so I can get some extra exercise.

Congratulations Cathy! That is phenomenal! I just did my weigh-in (a day early) and I'm down 11 pounds this week. I know not all weeks will be like this but I'm certainly celebrating the ones that are! emoticon

Good Sunday morning everyone,
since I was a slug yesterday, I must get my moving on today and before the daily rains set in! They have been powerful this week!

I think I will head to the Savanna's for a hike then to the pool to cool off

10 times a day sounds so much like a comp out to some I'm sure, but compared to not having accomplished ANY exercise three weeks ago, you can count this as a mini marathon for me! emoticon emoticon

This is great Deb! Every movement helps, or so I tell myself. Exercise is one of my bigger downfalls!

Sheryl, I will check this out....

Covegirl .... I have been there before. I walk around in a funk most of the time requardless of the amount of sleep I have gotten...... Keep us posted.

OK..... I have a new spiral notebook and plan to get moving on (THE HEALTHIER ME) .
BC was 162 ..... not a good start this morning but it IS a start!

I also had one of those AHA...... moments when I went to get into our pickup truck this morning. We have side step rails to help me get in and out of the truck. I usually put my right foot on the rail and then DRAG my left leg up.... then I catch a breath and swing myself into the seat and by then I am breathing deep. emoticon
Well as most of you know, me and DH moved into our RV about 3 weeks ago.......
This morning after doing what I call (MY STAIR STEPPER EXERCISES) emoticon
getting in and out of the RV every single time at least 10 times a day!

I stepped up on the side rail of the truck and swung myself into the seat in one smooth motion!
HOW AWESOME WAS THAT?! emoticon emoticon
