Had a fabulous day yesterday. Went to church and heard a phenomenal message. Melissa had returned home from Namibia late Saturday evening, and she then showed us her pictures. Wilderness Safari's Little Kalula Camp, and Wilderness Kalula Camp on the edge of the Namid Desert in Namibia, has the most stunning Sun Sets I have ever seen!!! When I get some pics from her, I will do a blog. Then we spent Sunday afternoon in the Jacuzzi at my brothers place. WooHoo. We put a beef roast and a chicken in the webber, and just chilled! Amazing! We HAVE to make the most of the weather, before it turns. From his place we saw the most fantastic tree that has all it's autumn leaves already. Too beautiful. Have a stunning day folks!

I choose the brownies! It fits me pretty good. I'm amazed at your long term goal. Right now I'm at the spot where walking around the block is my goal. (Knee replacement that hasn't become pain free yet after 11 months)

I love the Lord, my family and Spark People!

Hey Katie ... WooHoo!!! Hope that you are enjoying the gym. Bet you are. You always feel so much better after going. I'm rooting for you. YOU are a STAR!!! I can't wait to get to stage 2 of my journey and that is to tone and shape up, get fit and you won't believe this, but yesterday a thought was dropped into my mind. That is to climb Mount Kilimanjaro??? Wouldn't that be something??? I know that Nicolle and Phillip have set this as a goal, but Melissa mentioned it yesterday and I think I'll put it on my 'To Do' list!!! A longgggggg term goal, you understand. First have to achieve The Otto Trail in Knysner.

Now for a bit of fun ....

Take this dessert test. No cheating. Pick your dessert, then look to see.

If you were buying a dessert and you had your choice of the following, which would you choose?


Angel food
Brownies
Lemon Meringue
Strawberry Short Cake
Chocolate on Chocolate
Ice Cream
Carrot Cake

OK - Now that you've made your choice, this is what research says
about you!


NO....you can't change your mind once you scroll down! So think carefully what your choice will be!!!

(and no peeking!)





Angel food ...
Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A
little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the
end of the day. Others perceive you as being child-like and
immature at times.

Brownies...
You are adventurous, love new ideas, are a champion of underdogs
and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up, you whip out your
saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and
direction. You tend to be very loyal.

Lemon Meringue...
Smooth, sexy, & articulate with your hands, you are an excellent
after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and
chew gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, but you have
many friends.

Vanilla ice-cream with Chocolate Icing ....
Fun-loving, sassy, humorous. Not very grounded; in life, very
indecisive and lack motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you,
but you are a practical joker. Others should be cautious in making
you mad, however, you are a friend for life.

Strawberry Short Cake...
Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other people and can be
counted on in a pinch. You tend to melt. You can be
overly-emotional and annoying at times.

Chocolate on Chocolate ....
Sexy, always ready to give and receive. Very creative, adventurous,
ambitious, and passionate. You have a cold exterior but are warm
on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for
anything average in life. Love to laugh.

Ice Cream...
You like sports, whether it be baseball, football, basketball, or
soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but you enjoy
watching sports. You don't like to give up the remote control. You
tend to be self-centered and high maintenance.

Carrot Cake...
You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun
to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very warm
hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal
friends.

Thanks Jen, I've just been for a walk today its soooo cold here still in the UK and can't wait for summer so I have more motivation to do things. I'm joining the gym tonight when hubby gets in from work so at least theres that. I might have a chance of getting into a UK size 18 again by summer if I'm lucky by going to the gym every night.

Happy New Year to each and every one of you. May ALL your dreams come true in 2012. You all ROCK! Sounds like you are all back into it. It's my last day off today, tomorrow it's back to the grindstone. We have had a wonderful break though. A fabulous Christmas and spent lots of quality time with family and friends. We are ending off the holiday season with a leg of lamb and a chicken done in The Weber today. Melissa will do her awesome spuds, and I will do the veggies. Goodie two shoes me, won't partake in this scrumptious meal, I'll just Spark on and eat what I should, lol. (ONLY 10 kg's to go! Woo Hoo!) The sun is out, and we will swim and enjoy each others company. All the family will arrive around lunch time. Luv it! You all take care, keep sparking, and know that YOU are the VERY BEST!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The weather is actually decent here today, so I was able to get a short walk in over my lunch break. It is supposed to be warm here again tomorrow so I might be able to get in another walk tomorrow. So far this month has been going good for me and I have been sticking to my exercise and watching what I am eating. I hope it warms up for you, but it is unusual for it to be almost 60 in January here too!

Hi everyone, its Wednesday and I've been shopping this morning to buy some things for the house. I was going to go to art class today but it was so cold out and I had all the shopping with me that I decided to go back home and stay indoors. I hope everyone is ok and kicking off to a good start this January.

take care, Katie x

Hi everyone,

I've been busy this week doing shopping in the January sales. I hope everyone has a fab new year and all your dreams and aspirations come true! I'm having a quiet new years and just sipping vodka and coke this evening. I'm excited about losing some more weight this year.
I'm going to my mums for dinner on Monday but will keep that healthy.

lots of love
Katie x

To A Beautiful Person

If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He listens.
He can live anywhere in the universe, but He chose... your heart.
Face it friend, He is crazy about you!
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack. "Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."

Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Anthony Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.

The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.

Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Anthony Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral."

She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"



















you're gonna love this)





its a real treat)









(a masterpiece)








(wait for it)








The bank manager looks back at her and says...
"It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."



You're singing it, aren't you? Yeah, I know you are........

Never take life too seriously!

Hey Diana! {{Hug}}

You know...they do make 'no pull tape! Tell those meanies to use some! LOL...Sometimes I think they LIKE to make it hurt. I know they would 'press' or whatnot and then look at me in surprise and say...'did that hurt?'....I wanted to say...'no, broken bones don't hurt at all, come closer, let me break a few of yours...' emoticon

Your body will tell you when it's ready...just start off slow. Maybe walk instead of biking the first few days? Slowly get back? I just hope it all comes together for you soon and you start to feel better. Until then, we are here! Whenever you need us.

Way to go Twinkie!!! I as really happy for you! I feel like I need to start from square one again. I need to start riding the bike again but I'm so sore that I can't seem to force my self to get on it. The Dr. has said that I can get back on but start slow. I keep thinking that today will be the day then something happens that I end up in bed for most of the day. Yesterday I was feeling good when I got up. Then had to go into the Woundvac dr. to have the dressing changed. (I have to go 3 times a week) They ended up have to apply the dressing 3 times to get it to take. Which means that all the tape has to be pulled off each time. And I mean pulled!!! With the wound in the bikini area this is quite painful! And they keep pressing on the open wound saying "sorry". After 2 hours of this I could hardly walk and ended up taking pain killers again. I am still really sore this morning. But I don't go back until Monday so hopefully I won't be sore by then because they will have to take it off and reapply it again. I praying for a "first time " take!! I need to get back to tracking everything, and I know I just need to do it! I can't believe how hard it is for me to do something so easy! I know my hormones are crazy now but really!
I love reading about others successes really shows me that this can be done. I haven't been able to weigh because of the woundvac. But I feel like I have gained weight, which is alittle discouraging. But hopefully I will be able to get rid of it next week.! So we will see!

I love the Lord, my family and Spark People!

Michele..I have been to Las Vegas...and lived in NV. I also still have friends who live in Vegas and in NV.

So I am familar with the weather there, thank you.

When you have six months of snow/wind/ice and below zero weather,and snow banks three times higher then you, then we will talk about 'winter'! emoticon AND there are places in this country that get it much worse then that.

And..this link here shows Vegas average temps for last year...http://www.weather.com/weather/wxcl
imatology/monthly/graph/USNV0049


Those of us in 'cold' places all tend to think 'occasional cold/wind' as a spring day!

Good to hear from you, Maryann

We have those same people...high tide, waves crashing over the barriers and there is always someone out there trying to surf or whatnot...getting into trouble and then expecting someone else to risk their life to save them. Idiots.

Hope you don't have any more reactions..and have a great weekend!!

Congratulatons Twinkie!!! Im not at all sure if i have lost or gained myself. I have to wait till friday 28th oct to weigh. I cant afford to purches a scale. At first i was thinking it was a good thing. Now i realize it puts me at a disadvantge. Weighing once a week lets you adjust your eating an excersie as needed.
Now i got a responce about temps ect in vegas bymydesign (yep a bit spacey today lol) facts about vegas : vegas is in the mojave dessert. Vegas is also in a valley incircled almost entirely by mountains. The dessert always has extreams in temps. Here in vegas summers can get 120 an has very strong hot grating winds off the mountains. In winter can go below 0 with winds like a icy knife coming down of thoughs mountains. While ademittly wasnt alot vegas did get snow last year that lasted a day. So being caught not being ready for winter isnt good. Because our weather changes some times are very quick an misserable lol. Not fussing at you bymydesign your reaction is really common alot of people just doesnt know these facts about vegas.

Hello everyone... I did another weigh in this morning and I'm finely out of the 190's... I have jumped for joy.. I didn't think I was ever going to get to the 180's. I have worked extra hard these past couple of weeks on being more active and it has paid off..
I just had to share...

Hi everyone -- I'm a little behind on keeping in touch. emoticon

Having just lovely weather in the Chicago area -- it's been raining, windy, and cold. There are wind warnings out to stay off the bike paths that run along Lake Michigan because of the waves . . . . but I'm sure some joker will venture out anyway!!

I had one of those busy, hectic days yesterday!!! I started at 7:00 a.m. and didn't get home until 5:30 p.m. But I did manage to get my daughter and son in for their flu and pneumonia shots -- against my son's wishes!!! I had my flu shot Monday and had a reaction -- which was a first for me -- so I was surprised that they gave me a pneumonia shot as well.

Trying to decide what to tackle today -- since the weather is so crummy, it's a good day for indoor projects -- or sleep!!

Hope everyone has a great day.

Maryann

Busy day, Michele.

And yep, walking is good...and saving 3 dollars a ride is really good! Glad you got some more clothes and you sound like you had a good day. I laughed when I read 'gets cold in Vegas'...we get 20 below...and lots of snow/wind. You get what? 60?

Still, I know that is cold when you arn't used to it and you do need a jacket or sweater. Hope you get some clothes for those colder days.

wow its been one more day lol. I had a $10 voucher to go to salvation army to get some clothes. Im still working on getting clothes from when i was homless. An i just dont have to go buy clothes in stores. I got the vouchrr when i went to try to get a furnature voucher lol. But no furnature voucher i missed the boat on that one. Any way the city moved the blame bus sstops lol. I got my exercise an then some. I walk block from my home an waited for bus. Got the bus 20 minute bus ride got off bus it was a 30 minute hike back to salvation army spent about an hour in salvation army. So hard to find any thing in my size an i didnt get any winter clothes : -( but $10 doesnt go far. Got a pair of caprie pants an 2 tshirts. Meaning when it finally turns cold here in vegas im going to freeze lol. Then it was almost 40 minutes to stop to get bus. Im sure if you can jog or run or walk fast for that matter it wouldnt take so long. But i cant walk so great i have a pass for para transit because i cant walk fast enough to get across thevstreet befor the walk lite turns red lol. Many a time i was almost run over. But i cant always afford para transit bus $3 to get on once your off an get back on its another $3 so im looking at tbe happy side to riding city bus i got excerse lol.

Hi everyone! Thought I would check in. I'm doing ok. This last weekend was a little ruff. The woundvac quit working and there isn't any one on call during the weekend. Which I think is really dumb. But luckily for me my Daughter had been paying attention when they changed the dressing and was able to remove the vac and wet pack the wound. When I got in to the doctors on Monday, they told me that she had done just what needed to be done and no damage had been done. It was a little scary having the wound open and exposed again. But I was very careful not to do anything that would hurt it or expose it to infection. I'm so grateful that Becky hasn't moved yet. My husband is still on the road training the guys that bought our business, so I would be home alone with out her. Thank you for all your love and prayers. I do feel their support! I'm grateful for a loving Heavenly Father that helped me to find this site!! You are all awesome! emoticon

I love the Lord, my family and Spark People!

This hasn't been the best week for me .. I found out I'm losing my job once again . I have been with this company for almost 10 years but still the low man on the totem pole on seniority. I have been called back on 2 different time in the last year, yes I was still hanging on, they have pulled my finger nails out this time . They are closing yet another store so now we are down to 1 in this area and so here I get the boot again. When I came home today I was so bummed and dragging..... But after reading so many different blogs and postings I see there is light at the end of the tunnel I just needed to turn the switch on.

Just want to say thanks for being here.

Bymydesign you vmcan call me michele. : -) vegas seldom gets rain. We are in the dessert with extream temps. Rain gentially come with cold but thank the good lord above im not homeless any more . Veru greatful for a roof. We dont have trains here. Just city buses an i can do para transit but its not cheap. $3 one way an its pretty much get on $3 get off an get on again its another $3 so i use it for one main shopping trip an dr visits. Im gonna make it with this bad mess. It was like this for 3 months last year an it wasnt that great but i managed. An part of the reason so much produce. Im vegan i eat alot of grains fruits veggys essentially plant based items an i prefer some things fresh otbers im fine frozen. I got lucky my mom in alabama seance dried beans are cheaper there sent me 12 pounds of variouse beans to start my pantry with non parishable things im gonna gradually when i get my stamps stock couscous an brown rice, quino i dont always eT beans though. I had veggie spagettie for supper with whole wheat pasta. An seance iv changed to vegan in one month i lost 5pounds an im always eating. Despite how my health is im also getting more energy witch is something for some one with chronic fatigue syndrom/fibromyalgia lol any way thanks for responding

MICHELENVEGAS;

I'm sorry to hear about your problems. I hope everything gets straighten out soon.

That's a lot of produce...lucky you. We still have the Farmers Market here, but not for much longer. Our 'killing frost' was a few weeks back so everything is dwindling down. I put up quite a bit so hopefully it will last through winter.

I ride the bus too...and train. And yeah, the rain can really make the walk miserable. I don't mind a summer rain...when I am coming home...but cold, icky rain when I have to go to work is no good. LOL

Salsa sounds good...and the nutrition tracker is telling me I need 188 more calories to reach my 1200 ...salsa and tortilla chips just might be the thing! Thanks!
Have a good day...and night!

well I'm in week 2 of recovery. The woundvac is helping, but having to change the dressing every other day is so painful. My energy level in nil. But I keep trying to look on the positive side. I know that it could have been so much worse. I'm grateful to you all for your love and support. I haven't been able to weigh in because of the vac. But I'm not eating what I shouldn't. All I hope for is that I don't back track too much. Luckily the appetite is not there. Any way thanks again!

I am so excited it's hard to concentrate at work! I scheduled a wellness appointment for today and I just got done. She officially approved taking me off blood pressure meds and the metformin. She took lots of blood to do a full work up and if my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are in the normal ranges she will remove the metabolic syndrome diagnosis.

The BEST THING is that she approved me to go back to the gym!!!!!!!! I have lost 38 pounds in a year with no working out whatsoever and 26 pounds since June 20. Incorporating cardio and weights into that is only going to make it that much better.

This is a good day.

Katie and all,

I like thrift stores as well...many times I find clothes with the original price tag still on. I get alot of my beads there too...and then re-set into my own bracelet/necklaces/earrings. I have what looks like a very expensive, expansive wardrobe that in actuality cost me very little. Gotta love that. Sometimes I shop Marshals...and sometimes Walmart...but usually only tshirts/turtlenecks...foundation stuff.

Diana!!! I am so glad you are doing well. I was sorry to hear about the complications...but glad you are healing now. Liste n to your doctors and don't push your recovery too much. I know there were times (ok....there are STILL times) when I'd push despite what the doctor/therapist said...and paid. Though sometimes I was right ...you have to listen to both and then weigh who is more correct. LOL Not so easy!

When you are feeling better, we will all be here to cheer you on as you start exercising again. {{hugs}}

Rottenap : Glad to hear you came through the surgery, sounds like you have a rough few weeks ahead of you. Just take it easy.


Katie: One of my most favorite places to shop for clothes are thrift stores. I treat myself once in a great while to a regular store,but most of my stuff I get from a thrift store. In fact I just got some complements on a purse today and the women couldn't believe all I paid was 1.50 , I just love looking for a bargain.

Well the surgery is over! It went well but the first night I started hemmoraging. So they had to open the incision again but leave it open. I know have to wear a woundvac. Which is not very comfortable but at least I'm not walking around with a giant open hole in my belly. I'm not allowed to lift anything heavier than a fork! That will last for at least 3 weeks. I have to wear the woundvac for 6 weeks. I can't do long walks or any form of excerise during this time. I hope that I don't back slide, but I can only do what I can do. After I'm healed I know what to do!! I'm grateful for the prayers offered in my behalf. It could have gone really down hill but didn't, And I'm grateful! Hope everyone has a great weekend. I will definitely be reading the "Spark"
