Deb - you're going to need a waterproof sunscreen...... maybe the water baby sunscreen?

I'm finally getting a handle on working out and trying hard with the eating. I'm tracking everything but some days are better than others. My one year anniversary and my 46th birthday are tomorrow and in that year I have dropped 70 pounds and that is a great gift to give myself so I am not beating myself over the head for my minor screw ups!

Good Morning Everyone!

Michele, They are a great bunch of friends!

I am having an issue this week.....
I have wanted to get back into swimming and doing my water exercises but every time I get into the pool now I burn. I am on a bunch of meds I take each day that am positive are the issue.

The question is...... What kind of sunscreen can I use to stop this?

I am burning across my shoulders and across my chest. I expected those areas to get some sun but I am also burning behind my knees and on my upper calves below my knees. It makes no since to me except that I must be getting some sunrays slipping through the water to the back of my legs.......

I am dark skinned by nature and sunburns are not something I have had issues with much in the past......

Jeanne you are a fantastic walking, talking encouragement! I am so very proud of all you accomplished this year....

I wish my blood work had been done so much earlier. I kept asking but sometimes even the best doctors can dig in and become stubborn where blood test scheduling is concerned. I should have insisted but I stepped back and played the submissive role. That was the wrong move on my part and I will be working on speaking up for myself from now on.

With my depleted thyroid levels, my deficient potassium levels, and my deficient vitamin D, my body was unable to get rid of anything, much less a pound. It went to sleep and hibernated for a while.....

I am doing much better now and if I remember to Velcro my mouth shut (just kidding) in the evenings, I may accomplish a little bit of ground work and continue to loose.....

God is good my friends......!

Well I have had 2 weeks of steroids and am afraid to get on the scales until I've had at least a week to "recover"! I will weigh on the 27th of June latest because that is when my next 5% Challenge starts. When I get those steroid injections, I feel like I could eat the world! It's awful! But without them, I would be stuck hurting and unable to walk or exercise so I'm trying not to whine overmuch!

Beth and Deb - You are both doing so well! I am so proud of you both!

I am continuing on to finish out the year of my challenge come what may. My challenge ends on the 18th of August and we'll see how much I dropped in that year.

Hi All! I have been MIA due to battling my bipolar for a while. I feel like I'm finally coming out the other side of things and will try to be more present on the team boards! I've gone up about 3 pounds and am not real happy with myself but I've been off the rails for over 3 months and it could be a LOT worse. I've just gotten some steroid injections for my joints and have another set scheduled for next week so I'm battling the huge appetite that goes with that. However after next week that will be over with for the next 6-7 months and I'll be moving with greater ease! This too shall pass and I shall overcome!

"and I said to my body softly; "I want to be your friend." it took a long breath and replied; "I have been waiting my whole life for this." - Nayyirah Waheed

After losing 220 pounds, I'm having to cut portions a bit more. My body is very used to the calories it has been getting. I hate this part.... That's why I only cut by enough to lose .5 pounds more a week when I cut. I HATE feeling like I'm starving and I can only do that for so long before I blow. Really, before anybody blows... Our bodies are hard wired not to want to starve. So I personally eat mini meals and mini snacks through the day rather than load up and get hungry a few hours later. I have to choose goals that I can stick with for life- all of it's ups and downs for the most part. We are all going to have bad days, but it's what you do consistently that counts. Consistently choose to make patient purposeful choices for yourself and you can do this.

I have started a new regiment and it is taking me a little time and a lot of energy to get mobilized. I use to jump full speed into a new and exciting way of getting healthy but I seem to have lost speed this year. I think it all started when I became diabetic and eating became a chore to plan.....

Boy, was I ticked to have gained 9 pounds the day after surgery! I asked my doctor if that was normal and yes, it was. I've gained from medicine changes, certain types of medicines, other surgeries and although I expect it now, it always upsets me. BUT now I have a plan and now I have half of that weight off a week later. How?

Drink your water and flush out all of the yuck, keep yourself fuller, and compensate for the fact that hunger and thirst both register in the same part of the brain and can get you confused with their signals.

Keep low calorie foods handy for noshing, because sometimes certain medicine changes or medicines make you hungry. Save higher calorie foods for meals. Almonds or walnuts, although higher cal, do make a satisfying snack at 1 ounce 20 minutes before a meal and they help you eat less.

Try to track and TIME your eating. It isn't all about what you eat, it's when you eat also. eating every 3-4 hours in a snack like fashion with a little carbs, some protein, and some healthy fat can keep you from experiencing the ravaging hunger that some medical things can bring on. Keep in mind that dairy, breads, beans, veggies, and fruits all have carbs in them.

Bring on the fiber and protein to stay full.

Reset your Spark Weight Goal often as you lose of gain because your calorie needs change. Go to your start page, then see where it says TRACK WEIGHT... there is a little tab in light letters underneath it that says EDIT GOALS. Click that. That's where you can update your new weight goal, decide how much you want to lose per week or by what date you want to lose a particular amount of weight. Then let the tracker keep you moving in the right direction by tracking your food daily.

If these tips look like the same tips you have to take to lose every other kind of weight, yes, you caught on. The trick with all weight loss is diligence and persistence. You have to really really want it, even in the middle of the night when the fridge calls. So plan for those snacks too- ahead of time.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now. ~Indygirl

Hey Spark Team,
This is INDYGIRL (Beth), speaking to you through my friend and co-Leader NEWSPARKDEBBIE (Debbie)....

I recently went through my shoulder surgery and am now recovering from home. I have been placed on a NO TYPEING profile until further notice and will be communicating through Debbie to you and for you.

The doctor successfully removed the tumor and shaved off the bone from the shoulder. He (the surgeon) had to remove more bone than expected and found that I have a torn rotator cup and the pain is very intense. I will be returning to the surgeons office for my post-op follow up appointment on the 12th and hopefully will be released to type at that time. I also hope to convince the surgeon to release me from wearing the arm sling he has placed me in at this time. I realize the importance of immobilizing the shoulder from any and all movement but the weight of the sling is bearing down on the bad disc's in my neck which is causing me a lot of pain in that area as well.

Please know that I am missing you ALL very much and that I wish you all good luck on your own journeys during my absence.... I will be back as soon as the doctors give me the ok......

I got in over 13 miles on the desk cycle today. I just wasn't feeling it, but I did it. Thank God for upbeat music and caffeine! I can't wait for my surgery on Friday to get my shoulder fixed, as I haven't slept well in months. I roll over, hit it and it keeps me up for hours throbbing. Just another 5 days... then I will be on my road to recovery. I'm trying hard to watch my portions lately, as finances have been really drained form my husband's surgery, all of my diagnostics and now my surgery. Things are falling behind in a big way. It's getting scary and when I get scared, I want to stress eat. Plus I tend to get blood clots to the lungs after ortho surgery, but they are taking precautions. Well, thanks for lending me an ear. I think just being able to share this rather than "eat at it" helps.

FROM TODAY'S BLOG: I'm feeling pretty good about my new "re-start" with updated goals emoticon . I've printed them on the prettiest fairy paper I have. I have hung up the pretty skirt that I want to fit into, by a wedding for my Fairy God Daughter, Aug. 9 & just reignited myself. I work better for reaching a goal, than just trying to get there. I will create new goals for every month, kind of like a theme for the month. I know my SP friend AJ has a month of theme photos for her profile page. That's what I am doing, except for my goals. 9 pounds back to goal, as of today, I will weight in tomorrow, Fridays', as always, but my clothes feel roomier than last week. I've been VERY focused emoticon & seems to be working emoticon . I'm following the advise of our fearless leader, Chris Downie, THE SPARK emoticon BABY STEPS emoticon , vision board, etc.

It works for me, how about YOU?

I was re-reading Beth's email to the team which stated "We have 6 new topics and new challenges that ANYBODY can do to lose weight!". Can someone tell me what they are (the name of the post) and where on the team threads they are located. I'm having trouble finding them. Thank y'all so much for help with this.
