emoticon to YOU! 7-21-16 "TRAIN YOUR MIND TO SEE THE POSITIVE IN EVERY SITUATION" A quote on LPORTER2015 SPage... I am doing just that! Or at least going into an easier thought than negative & worrisome. It IS working! Listening to Abraham-Hicks (on you tube) is helping me do this!

Deb - Way to go on dropping those 6 lbs!! Thank you for adding me to your prayer list. I am feeling a bit better so I think it's just a short term bug that I caught.

Oh no Jeanne!
I added you to my prayer this morning. I want you to feel better my friend!

I am back on track and have managed to drop the 6 pounds I added back on during moms illness and funeral time. Its been difficult to consintrate on food, and it feels good to spend time with family and what better way than to sit down over a dinner table?

We are moving back into the house for now so I am busy and always moving. No time to sit and ponder lifes misteries....

Good for you Beth! I make myself do the same thing. I've tracked every day for the last 3 weeks aside from one.

I feel like my body is betraying me. I finally got motivated and started exercising. Now I'm sick again. I am hoping it doesn't turn into anything serious. Right now it's just painful ears and swollen glands and extreme fatigue. I'm torn about whether to exercise through it or rest until I'm better............

Tracking is difficult again because I got away from it for so long. I'm very sure that's a big part of what is holding me at the same weight or higher. I just yo yo in the same 20-30 pounds. I'm making myself track everything again, even if I go over so that I at least see a real picture of what's going on.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

Ditto... Awesome, Beth!!
I'm all about the protein. Keeps you full and keeps you from losing muscle mass when you lose weight.
emoticon That is, enough protein makes you lose only fat, not muscle. Therefore, keeps your metabolism higher vs. if you lose muscle along with fat.

Sparkling -- Great pic!! How great to connect with lifelong friends!

Good morning Team! Working on increasing my protein with some protein powder that I had used for years and absolutely love. I just haven't used it in a long time. I don't know why I stopped really. Pushing my vitamins twice a day to get my energy and mood up, hoping to feel better. Seems to be working!

Janis- I got some whey protein isolate shake mix, since I don't eat as much meat as I used to. I'm hoping the increase in protein will help the hair. I also increased my vitamins.

Frustrated from a 14 pound weight gain due to steroids- 3 rounds. Lost 4 of the little buggers. Tough work no matter how fast you gain, the loss is slow.

I KNOW flax seed is good for us, but it makes me constipated! Even just a 1/4 teaspoon. Weird!

Beth - I buy Bob's Red Mill ground flax seed and use it in different ways. 2 T mixed with unsweetened applesauce is good, I add it to oatmeal or to my protein pancakes, etc. Just keep it in the refrigerator or freezer because otherwise the oils will go bad. I've even sprinkled it over salad. It's got a nutty flavor and a lot of fiber in this form. I've never used just the oil itself.

SparklingMe -- Amazing desert flower! Enjoy time with your sister-girls!

Beth -- Sorry to hear about your hair woes. There can be reasons for hair loss, which I can't speak to, but it is made of protein, so for starters, getting plenty of protein would make sense. I get at least 80 grams/day and I notice my fingernails grow faster and very hard, and my hair is thicker than it used to be. (For a while I took a chemo drug for my RA so my hair was thin.)
Healthy fats making up a percentage of your diet sounds smart too. They don't have to be just oil, they can be flax seed meal, nuts, avocado too.
And you are talking to your doctor(s) about this, thyroid and ruling out other causes? Have you had an increase in stress? You haven't moved, have you? I've heard of different water causing hair loss. Be well, good luck.

Interesting info on hair loss. I see an endocrinologist and take thyroid med (my only regular Rx) for hashimoto's. Great doc but can't stop my hair loss.

Hi! Indy, I have my hair fall out if I don't get enough OIL! No kidding. I add a little more than is really required for my size. Olive Oil, coconut, & in avocados. It makes a HUGE difference in my hair! I also take extra Fish oil 2,000 a day most days & 3 of the hair, nails & skin, daily. I almost lost all of my hair Christmas eve. I found the perfect hair dresser for me. The cost is WAY beyond what I though I could afford , but I am eating less packaged foods & eating MUCH more salads & broccoli, etc. Roasted chickens from Costco. $4.99, saves me cooking it & cleaning it & is actually cheaper than buying it raw. I use it up in salads, taco salads, or just with 100% apple sauce on top. Hope these tips help!!!!

emoticon 6-21-16 I have 'sisters' not by birth, but my choice, coming to visit this week! 15 people total. We are going to have a blast, even though the temps are 111! They are going to 1 of my Zumba classes! emoticon Happy, healthy, summer to all of SP land! I love & appreciate you, so very much!!!!! emoticon emoticon




With 2 of the "sisters' at my 'niece' wedding last summer!

I've been feeling soooo exhausted lately. I must not be getting enough vitamins and protein. Possibly the most recent vitamins I bought were not as high quality as the ALIVE vitamins that I was using. I can definitely feel a difference. My hair has also been falling out in record amounts leaving bare areas. I got some hair, skin and nail vitamins that are heavy in biotin, but also noticed my protein is down lately. Looks like I need to reall give some attention to these things!

I've noticed that I use the word "just" a lot. Well, I just had a bagel for breakfast. I just had soup and salad for lunch. I just... Everytime I use the word "just" without actually looking at my tracker first, I go way over. "Just" causes me to minimize the actual value of the food I ate.

So instead, I need to leave that word out and say that I had a soup and salad. I need to not eat a bagel solo and pair it up with some protein. Thinking differently will cause my actions to be different.

Hi all! Doing a purge and rev up for a new start. I had soooo many dead accounts in my friends list that I just had to purge practically the whole thing. Some people had vacated their accounts back in 2012! After about 2 hours, I just gave up looking and started deleting people I didn't readily recognize, so if I deleted you by mistake, just Sparkmail me.

I am still around, just vacationing a bit lol. My health has been rather bad lately and my insurance is not that good, so it's majorly stressful. I wish I could just come down with something curable for a change lol. The resting and relaxing has been nice though.

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.

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.

Maybe my program doesn't give me that option because I use my IPhone to post mostly. I'll have to see if it lets me on my laptop. Thanks, Sparkling!

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...

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.
