I need to really do what I was doing last year: cut the sodium. I don't know why I thought that I had permission to introduce the sodium back to my life, since I am not getting any younger or healthier that my body is able to handle big amounts of sodium without rising the BP.

I rinsed the canned beans, olives, and many other canned foods. I limited to the minimum eating deli meats. I didn't use the salt shaker. I read the labels to check the sodium content.

I am glad that you feel energized and ready to solve problems. Good for you. You are right, when we have a serious problem, why to look for ways to add more problems instead of focusing on solving that one.

I received a comment on my blog that was GENIUS! Just what I needed to ask myself to give myself strength when fighting emotional eating- I call it emo eating.

How will getting fat (again) help?

WOW POWERFUL! I thought about the situations that are getting me down and none of them would be easier if I gained weight. They would be harder. Why? Because I recently regained my ability to walk and my freedom from a wheelchair. I need to stay thinner to take care of myself and my husband, whether he has cancer or not. I just now started working again and I need to stay mobile to do that. I do SparkPeople Rallies and I REALLY enjoy that part of my life. That too would go away of I got fat again. So everything I have worked so hard for= a life, would go away of I got fat again and I would once again lie in my bed waiting to die. Not going to happen.

SO WHAT IS IT YOU WANT MORE THAN FOOD?

I went back to thank the person for their comment, and the comment was either gone, or I couldn't find it. So thank you and all of the rest of you who said prayers, offered advice and care. I know I communicate in blogs most of the time, rather than individually. That's because I care about so many of you and I just don't have time to write each of you. I also want to encourage anyone and everyone who may happen across my blogs. My dream is that my blogs reach people in bed, just like I was, bedridden, who feel hopeless, and they learn that they too can do something... maybe not everything. Something is always better than nothing.

I feel lifted up and strong today! Woohoo! Let's do this!

Hoping like everyone else that the news will be good, that there is no cancer. However, keep in mind that if there is cancer present, they have made great strides at curing cancer and treating it has improved a great deal. You have my prayers.

Prayers are on the way! Even in your struggle you are able to give sage advice for us to use. You are so right about if you have to overdo it to use the healthy food rather than giving in to junk food. Take care of yourself as well as your hubby. Praying for a positive outcome.

Good Morning! I am new to this team and have not been on this thread before. Beth you have been an inspiration to me for years, and I thank you for that. Of course I will pray for you and your husband. You give so much to others, I hope things work out well for you with your husband's diagnosis and your finances as well. God bless!

Beth,

Prayers are definitely coming your way.....it seems we both went into overdrive on the stress end at the same time. I think we need to talk our lives into scheduling these things more conveniently.....like not at all preferably!!

I will keep you and hubby in my prayers. Call anytime if you need to chat!!!!

Hugs and blessings your way!!

My husband just underwent surgery to remove precancerous cells from his colon. They think they got them all. The cells are now being biopsied and we need prayers that they are not indeed cancer.

Finances have been less than stellar. Ive been struggling with one of my bff's, trying to start an at home business to help with finances, and this emotional eating is on the rise... So I picked up a bunch of fruits and veggies lately to just have around the house to snack on. I can't seem to get a grip on eating, so I have to get a grip on WHAT I eat and what I do. There are many many approaches to weight loss and when one stops working for you, don;t throw in the towel, switch it up! Move more and eat better food if you can't seem to get a grip on your quantity at the moment. Fruits and veggies and lea proteins will help you lose weight with some moderate activity. Restricting yourself under stress, I personally have found, leads to totally nutty behavior. But hanging onto a healthy lifestyle and prayer gives me a sense of peace and control that wouldn't otherwise be there.

So, for those of you who have wondered where I am... I am struggling with life and am in need of prayers for my husband to not have cancer, for the finances to pay the medical bills, and for the emotional upheaval to settle down a bit. Thank you for always being here for me!

Beth

Hey all! I haven't been too active on here, but I'm trying to change that. The first insane year of motherhood is coming to a close. I'm finding my footing (most of the time!) and reestablishing habits that I thought had stuck.

Honestly, I'm a little discouraged. I've been on Spark for 3 years. I started at 220, lost 10 lbs right away, then jumped up to 237 (my highest) Over the last few years, I went up and down in the 220-200 range, with a brief stop at 198 after my son was born. I don't know why I can't get past this! I'm stuck, and I'm tired of it. And it starting to show in my eating. I could use some encouragement. :(

Are you hiding from who you could be?

Crafts .... Jude is right, it more than likely IS water gain but have you adjusted your calorie intake on the goal section when you post your weight loss? Just a thought.....Your calorie intake goes down just about every 10 pounds you lose.

Well hubby and I have decided to sell the house to one of our daughters and her hubby. We head to a realtor today to talk over different plans for paying. Then we will be looking for a small piece of land to park ourselves on to retire. SCARY! emoticon and exciting at the same time. With our health issues it's a lot for us to take on but I'm pretty sure it's doable......

OKay where is everyone? Nothing to talk about and we don't want to talk about any gains Crafty, :) It is NOT permanent as you are doing well. It is probably water weight from doing to much. You have scared your body into hanging on for dear life. It will drop off soon. We all feel that way sometimes. Hang in there and we will all be cheering for your next weigh-in. I try to do only once a week on Fridays so I am not always on the scale. :) Good luck and lets spark this place up. Hugs, Jude

There must be something wrong with my scale. I gained more than 4# this week. Not even during the festivities I gained this much.

It's on my page, but basically I started with in home physical therapy. I was bed ridden and I did simple things like lifting shampoo bottles in bed and rotating my ankles at first. My first Spark Streak was drinking only organic milk rather than regular.

Beth,
Can you tell us how you started out? I am sure it is on here somewhere, but I cannot find it.

Back to basics for me. I have got to break this plateau! I amped up the pounds I want to lose per week to 1.5 so that SP would lower my calories and then I am going to start tracking DILIGENTLY today.

I managed to get out yesterday for some sun and fun and I made it to 10,000 steps. I'm still working on it for today. One more cold front is heading in tonight and temps are only supposed to be in the 40s tomorrow! emoticon
