You can do anything you put your mind to. If you want it bad enough, and work at it like it's your passion, it will come.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

An attitude of "whatever is convenient" won't accomplish very much. An attitude of "whatever it takes" is impossible to stop.

I've started some new threads on here to reflect the direction I'm going. I started The Small Plate Club and The Weigh, Measure, and Track Club in the Tiki Room Forum to help everyone stay accountable to eating goals. These two factors REALLY made a huge difference in my weight loss and I personally need to get back to basics. Perhaps this will help some of you too.

YES! The app's name is OFFER UP
I haven't started yet. But it comes HIGHLY recommended. They are 'located' near your home. I'm going to be meeting people at the local police department parking lot, for safety reasons. I'm just so happy to find a place to sell my breakables! I have a lot of Disney- vintage.

"Stabilyze" bar, my new favorite. @ Costco. Low Glycemic Dark Chocolate-Thin-Mint 190 calories. 12 protein Yummy! FILLING!!!! Taste like Girl Scout mint cookies. 20 grams carbohydrate. I eat 1/2 at a time & drink LOT"S of water keeps me going for several hours! Great for snacks on the run! emoticon emoticon

Good morning everyone :) The app sounds great! What is the name of it? I have a bunch of stuff I need to get out of the house too. Doing it in the police parking lot is a smart idea.

I am still in transition. The Cardiologist gave me a diet to follow last Monday and I have been cleaning out the old life style food. I gave all the unopened stuff to the church. The opened packages that were not donatable I have been tossing out. Unfortunately part of the tossing out process has been a last sample and I gained weight this week (i.e. I ate a cookie before tossing box in trash and made a blue berry toaster waffle and etc). Maybe some of it is stress too. I know I should not have ate one last whatever from pretty much each box in trash but it was hard throwing out a box of my fav cookies. It was easier to see the unopened stuff go to the church.

The grocer just unloaded my food order so now I have to organize it and make up stuff for the week. So baby steps.

My life today: emoticon emoticon 4-6-16 A day of finding a "link" to sell our unwanted 'good' stuff, with an app. locally! This is HUGE for us! No shipping! I will meet the buyers in the police station parking lot, for safety! Faster than Craig's list. More info as I learn about the "HOW" to of it! We have a TON of lovely things to sell! They are all over the states! I was going to just donate, but this is a better use of my time & money! THX Angels for your help! emoticon

Happy Easter all!

We are going to my BIL & SIL's (my late sister's husband remarried) for Easter dinner. I made an old WW favorite recipe, so easy I do it from memory:
Roast sweet potatoes in the oven (375 for about an hour) so they get even sweeter.
Peel and mash them.
Add a large can of crushed pineapple, salt & pepper.
Voila!

I mashed by hand, but didn't like the chunky texture, so ran the immersion blender through.
Healthy, no butter or cream, and it will go well with the ham the hosts are serving.

Congrats SparklingMe on your emoticon . I know you are grateful to SP for the good health you enjoy.

Beth, yes, I am grateful each day that this winter is so much milder than last, which was the coldest and snowiest in recorded history here in the NorthEast.
This winter has had its own challenges for my family of 3, with all of us very sick for many weeks. Seems like the end is in sight, God willing, my DH and son seem healthy and I am on the mend. (DH still faces sinus surgery in May.)

emoticon emoticon Happy St. Patrick's Day, all!

Thanks, all prayers always most appreciated! My son might have mono, still waiting for a blood test. That might be why the terrible throat stuff, it might not have been hand, foot & mouth at all. He couldn't eat or drink anything until he got a lidocaine mouthwash. He is also drinking Throat Coat & Echinacea Teas with honey.

Sparkling Me, have a great time in the parade with your marionette! I guess one doesn't say, "Break a leg" when it's a parade, right? That would be bad! Sure you will bring joy to lots of kids of all ages! emoticon

emoticon SparklingMe, on your emoticon ! Inspiring testimony about SP & health! Your message helps me stay grateful for emoticon .

Despite still having a terrible cough ("only" asthma now?) and bursitis in my hip, I did a lot of walking & a fair amount of housework today before I crashed for a nap before dinner. Saw the surgeon for "wound check" of my back... it's healing great, despite being on lots of Prednisone. Grateful for that.

My DH thought he was getting better on 3rd antibiotic (the one used for the Plague!) but today he is worse. My son has another illness the 5th a viral throat infection. His school had to take him to urgent care. This is insane, I'm waiting for the locusts & frogs!

Hope you are all well.

It's just a daily grind. Some days are much easier than others, aren't they? Like yesterday, I could have eaten everything I saw. I managed to only go over by 200cal. Today I feel stronger, more in control.

Weight loss takes more than calories in and out. If we could manage the exchange of a calorie deficit, we would all be thin. It takes a mental makeover, a realization that our relationship with food and movement isn't right at first. Then it takes some time to do the prep work of getting a proper kitchen together where you can weigh and measure, store food properly, have healthy foods available at all times... And proper equipment suited to your exercise needs. Can't use your legs? Try an arm bike. Chair exercise. Is a gym more your thing? Start thinking about the lifestyle you want to build for yourself, not the diet and exercise torture venture you want to go on. Prepare for sustainable changes. More to come...

Pedal biking and diffusing oils before I do a little work. Stress management is so important when you're an emotional eater like I am. What do you do to manage your stress/ emotional eating?

Adorable pic of the little girl getting hugged by the marionette! Great job you've got.

Beth, congrats! That is significant progress.
The first time I ever had a massage, when I was super stressed, going through failed fertility treatments, the masseuse used Clary sage massage oil. It was Heavenly!

I've been ordering oils from Edensgarden.com and they are really good. I like some of the synergistic blends for harmony, joy etc, as well as lavender and clary sage and bergamont.

I love essential oil's I use marjoram in the evenings on the bottom of my feet and big toe to reduce some of the restlessness in my legs. My grandson's love when they spend the night and I put lavender on their feet. I usually have something going in my defuser all the time. It helps me to not wanna snack all the time. I've been also cleaning out closets and getting rid of a lot of junk. Having my house organized keeps me from getting frustrated which in turn keeps me from making an unwise food choice. I wish my emotions didn't have such a huge effect on my diet. One day I wanna learn to eat when I'm hungry and not because of a particular emotion I'm experiencing. This post is so full of ramblings.....Lol

SparklingMe, your haircut looks great!
I have been growing mine out after having it short for years and it is now just about that long. I went in the pool at the Y today and put it in a ponytail.

I bought some Plumeria (flower) essential oil a few months ago because I was meditating, visualizing being on a beach in Hawaii with all my senses. I thought that really smelling that flower whose scent fills the air there would enhance my meditation.

I have made my own sent for aroma therapy..... 1 for autumn & winter AND 1 for Spring & Summer. They work GREAT for me to stay balanced! Again, Indy.... great comments!



emoticon 2-3-16 my world's emoticon update: Since I do not have any thing I have to do out in the world, I have been doing house work emoticon , cooking Turkey chili in the crock pot, (I love my crock pot! I've had it since our wedding, 1975) emoticon with LOTS of veggies & working emoticon from my computer. Also, I keep forgetting to check into my friends feeds. emoticon No, really. It is such a great place to keep in touch.... I'll check out more often! I usually write a new blog, every week. I have 1 SP friend, & when she makes a comment on it I move to the new, one. She still hasn't been by, so more on the last one. I update it daily! emoticon


New first time by a pro. hair cut 12-23-15 it feels SO healthy & perky! Even on both sides, HAHA! I use to trim it myself! (I look VERY stressed, I tried a 'box' color & my hair started falling out! Yes! Just before Christmas)


Old hair cut, with DH 2015 I KNOW it doesn't look that different, but it is 6" shorter & my 'real' color as a young adult!

No weight loss surgery, no crazy diets, no extreme exercise... Just SparkPeople. If I can make this journey and lose over 225 pounds and keep it off for a journey of 10 years, so can you! It's' our minds and our fear of failure, our desires for perfection and immediacy that get in our way. Let go of those things gradually and strive for progress, not perfection.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

Hello all!
I joined this team, God knows when and today when I was "cleaning house" at SP...there you were!

Prayers for you Beth! I fell on the ice almost a year ago (Feb. 28, 2015) and have a frozen shoulder for my trouble. I was so thankful I didn't break anything....but the pain is still intense. I sure feel for you...and any others this happens to.
If I'd "work it" more...I'd be further along with my recovery! I did have my Cardio Glide machine toted home for that purpose.

I'll poke around and play catch up with y'all...be blessed best where most needed today...
Bren


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Good Evening All!

Glad to hear that you knee is healing, Beth. I know that has to hurt something terrible.

Janis, Yep...Ice storm here. We have at least one each year and this year we had two. The first had about two inches of ice coating everything and the second one was about an inch. They were about a month apart. I do not care for ice but it is really pretty. I absolutely love the snow and unfortunately, there is no snow. The whole weather system is crazy this year and for you to have no snow yet is equally as odd.

I hope everyone had a great day and has a great day tomorrow!

Beth -- It's been over 10 days since you fell, how's that knee doing?

Sparklingme -- Great pic! Beautiful colors and the palm trees make me flash right back to when we lived in SoCal.

Ice storms in Oklahoma? So far in Boston it has been warmer than usual and we have had only a few inches of snow. We just caught the edge of that huge storm that shut down D.C. with two feet of snow.
Of course last year at this time we didn't have much snow, then got the most snow in history and recorded the coldest winter since they started keeping track in the 1800's.

Hi Ladies!

Beth, I am so sorry that you fell and got hurt! I absolutely love the snow but detest the ice. We have had two ice storms this year here in Oklahoma and not a flake of snow in my town, which is really not normal for this time of year. I hope that you get some pain relief soon and that you are okay.

SparklingMe, you have to be the most positive person I have ever seen! I know that your heart is hurting and yet you still spread happiness and care to everyone. You certainly chose the right user name...because you are sparkling so bright, I can see it here!

I hope that you all have a wonderful night and a great day tomorrow! I am so thankful to have joined this group with all of you!

Angela

Beth -- emoticon I've had 2 total knee replacements, so I can only imagine what landing on your bad knee was like. OW! Maybe ice it in the short term it it's swollen? Feel better soon.

Sparkling -- You are so positive always. I think Lucky is in Heaven, probably perched on St. Francis of Assisi's finger. You think?

I am going to empty my closet out tomorrow. (all 4' wide of it.) Have to donate stuff I don't use. My DH is going to put in a 2nd shelf above the one that's there and paint the inside. I bought a shoe rack months ago and just stuck it in beside the shoes! How sad is that?! Never got around to organizing them, but I will now, when the paint dries.

As per my blog, I must lose some weight so I can get knee replacements so Beth, I do feel your pain. I've put in 30 minutes on the treadmill today and am going to try for 30 more as I am having a pretty good back day. I'm going to do some food prep for the week first which may take all my energy and creativity. LOL And while the sun is shining, I had to sneak out and trim loropetalums bushes. One down, four to go. It's cold out there!

No sure about instant oatmeal - have not read the labels re the sugar content

Beth - I know you have lost a lot of weight - how far away from goal are you now. You are amazing and doing so well - shared with hubby how you had done and he smiled and said 'See it can be done if you just persist;

I have had 8 great days so far this January and am looking forward to tomorrow when I can record my weight - I record it every 10 days as I find if I tell myself that just for 10 days to eat clean it seems to make it so much easier than thinking long term.

Now to go and get in some intentional walking - emoticon emoticon

Sounds like a GREAT option! Was the oatmeal, instant? I just found out they are loaded with sugar. I make my own. But they are better than SO many choices, right? emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well, I'm up at night and ready to hit the kitchen hard. So I had a tablespoon of peanut butter and apple cinnamon oatmeal and am waiting to destress or get sleepy again. Lord help me, please.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

So right Debbie: self-forgiveness. My favorite saying is "A hammer is not a spiritual tool." Beating yourself up does no good.

As I put on the wall today: "Just because you made a mistake doesn't mean you are a mistake."
-- GEORGETTE MOSBACHER

CINDYRENEA, You can do this. You can figure out what is going the wrong way... is it mindless or emotional eating? A certain time of day that you didn't plan ahead for and so resort to less-than-healthy food? Not enough filling protein and fruits/veggies/whole grains? Drinking enough water? Moving some?

Thanks Beth, but through my own holiday indulgences I regained 5 lbs,, about 1/2 of what I had lost.
I think I gave myself a pass mentally in part because I was planning on the 2016 challenge in the new year.... The old eat-everything-in-sight-for-tomorrow-I-die
t mentality. Like, "I'm going to lose a pound a week starting in January, so I can have some cookies now."

Sorry about your knee pain. I've been there. Had two knees replaced 10 years ago before I lost 50 lbs. Do ice or heat help? I swear by my gel ice pack. Also Epsom salt baths. Maybe even a cane if you are at the point of being ready for a TKR? I wish you the best.

Day 2 of tendering my knee. It's still very sore and very difficult to walk on.
