emoticon I am so excited! I am leaving Friday afternoon to go to this beautiful ranch about a hour and half away from here to a Women's Retreat with my church! It was so much fun last year and we had about 47 women last year but I had just started going to church there so I didn't know anyone very well. This year I know a lot of women so it will be so much more fun! I am also paying a cleaning service to clean my apt tomorrow night so I will have a nice clean apt when I come back Sunday night! Have a housing inspection on Tuesday so I will be ready! emoticon Glad everyone had a great day! emoticon

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

Hey! it's emoticon Wednesday!

My emoticon is... I had a errand to do for work today, and on the way back I got to stop and get a healthy lunch from Panera! emoticon I rarely get Panera and it's one of my favorites.

Progress and restored health are excellent Woo Hoos, Jen and Sarah!

My Woo Hoo! is that I was able to dance, and I mean really full out, crazy, uncoordinated, everything shaking and wobbling and rocking and rolling dancing all over the living room with my granddaughter for about 15 minutes this morning. 6 months ago I thought I would never shake my booty again. So a big old giant Woo Hoo! for me!

For some reason the emoticons page comes up for me, but won't let me click on them. Oh well WOO HOO! WOO HOO! WOO HOO!

My emoticon for today is that I have gotten several projects off of my desk this morning and it isn't even 9:00 AM yet! It feels great to see progress!

Woo Hoo Jennifer for scheduling your first mammogram! They are very important. They found a cyst in one of my breasts and I get it checked every year to make sure it is still not cancer. Glad you got it scheduled.

Woo Hoo MaryJane for 50 lbs lost! Way to go! Keep up the good work!

My woo hoo is I met a man on a dating online site called OKCupid! We have been mostly texting but tonight we got to talk on the phone again and I feel so much better now! He is out of town with his job and won't be back for a few months which is good. It will give us more time of talking on the phone and texting and getting to know each other before we actually meet in person. He is a really nice guy! I have talked to some real creeps on there that would lie about just stupid things that I knew they were lying to me and when I confronted them they would change their story again so I told those kind of guys to take a hike! Walter has not dated since his wife died in childbirth two and half years ago. He has a two and half year old son. So cute in the pictures! And a puppy named Toby! I am taking my time though and he agrees to that too. But we do care about each other. He always ask about my kids and granddaughter which is super sweet! So that is my woo hoo for this wed! oh I have been divorced for 28 years! Dated a lot but just never felt like they were the right person for me ! It is time for me to be happy again!

Have a great day everyone!

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

My Woo Hoo for today is that I scheduled my very first mammogram for this afternoon. I've put it off for the last couple of years, but I have a dear friend fighting breast cancer and she has encouraged me to get checked. Nervous about it, but happy I'm finally getting this crossed off my "to do" list! emoticon

My emoticon is I got a Sparkgoodie today from Sarah encouraging me to post again so here I am ! Thanks Sarah! My emoticon I am excited about is having the rest of the money tomorrow to finish paying for the women's retreat at my church which is the weekend of the 24 and 25th! I aim so excited to just get out of town for the weekend! It is so beautiful there on the ranch we go to in Bandera! There is a small creek that runs through the property and it is so quiet there and so nice to be out in nature like that! Plus just spending time with other women! Last year we had 47 women go! So emoticon to that and to all of your on your awesome woo hoo's! Have a great day! emoticon

My woo hoo today is I slept from 2300 to 0340 solid. That is the longest set in weeks. I might just get thru my push to get enough rest. I think some of it had to do with my wife's scheduled surgery. Stress is a funny thing... emoticon

My Woo Hoo is that I had a performance review with my boss that went very well. I always dread those things but she had nothing but praise and positive comments, so that was a huge relief!

Yeah for MJ's weight loss!!!

I have two woohoo's that are not actually specific to "today" but rather recent events.

1. I crossed over to long distance running this past weekend. I like it!

2. If we're good and stick to our budget, I worked the numbers and we'll be CC debt free by the end of the month! WooHoo!!!!

Hit 46 pounds lost today....First big goal of losing 50 pounds is just around the corner!
Today I weigh what I weighed when I married Charles 9 1/2 years ago. 14 more pounds and I hit the lowest I've been since he met me 13 years ago. After that, it is all lowest in 25 years or more! I'm loving it!

Woo Hoo for healing and Woo Hoo for stubborn weight plateaus budging!

My emoticon is that I finally got parameters to go by and am seeing the scale start to move again. Seems I was given some misinformation and instead of the guidelines on carbs and protein after WLS needed for weight loss, I was given the guidelines for maintenance. I was losing, but not as fast as I am supposed to after surgery. Starting to see that change now that I know what I am supposed to be doing! emoticon

Woo Hoo for flooring, weight loss, and reliable transportation!

emoticon

My Woo Hoo for today is that I woke up and folded a load of laundry before work. I know that sounds insignificant, but I have a really hard time getting up in the mornings and I have set a goal for myself to wake up early enough to get at least one or two chores done before work so I will have more time to complete classwork after I get home from work. I'm proud that I followed through and got up and got some housework done!

Yay for new flooring, Greg! Woo Hoo!

Woo Hoo #1 is that when I did my measurements on the 1st, 24 days after my last measurements at the doctor's office, I had lost 10 1/2 inches off my chest, hips, waist, upper arms, calves, and thighs (well, the thighs stayed the same, but that's okay!)!
emoticon

Woo Hoo #2 is that my almost full week of stalled weight loss finally ended and I lost almost 2 pounds in the last two days. Hurray for more fiber and getting things "moving"!

I have a early woo hoo! My daughter was in a car wreck that was not her fault and the insurance company has not wanted to pay for it but hopefully it will still come through after her insurance talked to them but in the meantime she was in a loaner from her car dealership where she worked and needed to turn it back in .
Well surprised the neck out of me but she called her Dad and he actually is sending her the money to buy her a cheap car! emoticon So happy he actually did something for her! my ex husband never helps with money so this is a big deal! I am glad! I had to help her with my granddaughters daycare this summer so I had nothing to help her anymore and she is a single mom too.So happy she will have a car which also mean she may be able to drive down here around Christmas and see me and my son and daughter in law! So woo hoos all around! emoticon emoticon

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

I have been consistently exercising every day since Saturday. I finally got professionally fitted running shoes (and insoles) and I started the 5K Your Way program again. This morning I doubled the session and did 8 intervals of 4 min walking and 1 running each. I covered 2.4 miles in 45 min (including cool down). By the 6th running interval I started to struggle but pushed. Just as that interval ended a runner passed me and encouraged me, "Hang in there! You're doing good." That totally made my day and helped me push even harder for the last two running intervals. emoticon

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.

It's seems to be a super weight loss WooHoo Wednesday! I lost 2 lbs that my body's been really hanging onto. Of course, my weigh in day is Tuesday, so next weeks weigh in should be really super duper. emoticon

That's awesome, Amanda!

My woo hoo today is that I was looking for a nicer outfit to wear from my closet, and ended up pulling out about 4 outfits that are now too big. Donation time! emoticon

Also, tonight is the premier of all of the 48 hour film project entries from San Antonio at the Bijou theater. My son-in-law Colin has participated with Hidden Track Productions for the last several years. Last year their entry won in San Antonio and was shown at the 48 hour INTERNATIONAL film project in New Orleans this year. Can't wait to see what he and all the other entrants came up with. So much talent in this city! If you don't know what the 48 hour film project is, you can learn more here: https://www.48hourfilm.com/en/about/

I have a big woohoo today - after a week on my 100-day personal challenge, I've dropped off 3.2 lbs already and am sitting at 165 lbs - back to 90 lbs lost! Now only 10 to go before I'm back at my original goal, and only 15 until I'm where I was a few months ago. I won't update my ticker officially until tomorrow because Thursday is my weigh-in day, but I'm still very happy. Woohoo!

Thank you Mary! I was not sure how to do that! so now I think I have it fixed and welcome anyone to be my friends since I don't have any on there! It has been so long since I looked at it that I updated it too.! the ;picture of me and my kids was taken 3 years ago at my Son's wedding! The small insert picture on here was taken a few months ago so it is more recent except I have cut my hair the same length now as the wedding picture. It was just too long! Thanks again Mary! I welcome any comments on my page! emoticon emoticon

Thanks jen! I have a spark page I don't know why it is not showing up beside my name maybe because I have not used it in a while but I will try to put my goals on there. I will list them here too.

1. Save enough money between now and Thanksgiving to fly Erin my daughter and Maddie my granddaughter here to SA for Thanksgiving.

2. Save enough money to pay for Women;s Retreat in Oct that is once a year on a Ranch that is just beautiful and so peaceful to be there!

3. Lose enough weight between now and Thanksgiving to be 299 or less. I am about 315 now so think I can do it if I just put my mind to it.

4 . Work on my apt and get rid of things some real spring cleaning so it looks good when my daughter and granddaughter come.

5. Walk to mailbox every day which is a good 30 min walk. I live in an apt complex and don't have a car so walking to the mailbox and back is a good walk.

That is all for now! And to drink more water!

I am trying to start slow! I have not been doing anything all year so just trying to get remotivated! Thanks again Jen and everyone! Darla

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

Yay for Stacey's weight loss and Darla's goal setting!

I'm with Jen, Darla - having a public spark page helps you and your team mates interact and keep up with each other with encouragement and help. You may keep your trackers for food and fitness private, while having a public page for us to visit!

Way to go, Darla! We will all be here to cheer you on. If you set your mind to it, you can do it!

Suggestion: if you create your sparkpage and list your goals on there, we can all stop by and give you spark goodies and encouraging messages. I'd love to be able to support you in that way!

I guess it must be me, then. Both of your posts have the word Computer as a hyperlink. This never happened to me before, so I assumed it was a sparkpeople thing, since they have so many flipping pop-ups and ads now! I'll have my son check my settings when he comes by later on.

While I have gained and lost the same pound and a half for the last few days, I've stayed the course and not lost faith. I've started my light lifting and core strengthening routine in preparation for more strenuous lifting on September 1st and I'm able to do more than I thought I could so emoticon for strength!

I'm Woo Hoo Hooing because this team is coming back alive and I LOVE IT!

Personal Woo Hoo is that my hubby is on vacation this week. We aren't going anywhere (too soon after surgery), but it's his birthday week and we have been celebrating all week by getting out of the house together for at least a little bit every day - even if it means running errands. It's so nice to see him relaxed and enjoying himself. It makes me so happy! emoticon

LMBO, I came here because I got an email that Greg had replied to this thread, and when I read MJ's reply, I assumed I was reading Greg's reply... LOL Had to double check when you mentioned the bra. emoticon

Congrats to YOU, Greg on your swim! And to MJ on your smaller sizes!

First I am having a big old WOO HOO! Seeing the team become a bit more lively. Makes me smile! emoticon

My other emoticon is that I just fastened my bra one notch smaller and my undies feel a little loose. That's my TMI emoticon for today!

For my WooHoo ...

emoticon ... I swam across the lake and back yesterday. It was slow ... and not all freestyle ... but it was 1/2 mile.

Great job everyone! My emoticon : Back to 232.0 (since start of PMSing). So that's 4 lbs lost.

My emoticon Wednesday is that Wednesdays are my Saturdays. After my cup of coffee taking my dog to the park. Later today going to the San Antonio Arts Museum and starting an annual membership.

Did someone say BIKE? There is an idea!

After waking up yesterday, I did not smoke a cigarette all day.
We can all do a small thing that represents a larger priority, we do not have to do it all at once. I challenged myself and completed it.

your fellow suffering-servant,

WooHoo Wednesday!

My WooHoo is I actually got a good night of sleep last night. I've been horrible lately about getting to bed at a decent hour.

Also, I think I'm going to actually make it to the Zoo Run tonight!

OK, so this is Thursday, but I did not get a chance to go online last night ;-)

Greg, it is good to have you back. Enjoy your anniversary trip!

MJ, yay for dropping those pounds! You will reach your goal. Monday, the big day, is so close. I know you can do it!

My WooHoo is for finally having a bicycle again since last night. I love riding bikes but have not had a bike in years. It is used and needs some work, but hey, it was free! I can't wait to tune it up and hit the road/trails.

MJ, this is great news! You can do it. Hang in there. emoticon

My WooHoo started on Sunday and is still ongoing. I am thrilled that Germany won the soccer world cup! It's been 24 years since the last one, which I was too little to actually remember.

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.

Woo Hoo! Down 5.4 pounds since last Wednesday. Sure, it's mostly because I've been on liquid protein diet since Saturday in preparation for my surgery on the 28th, but I'm still happy about it! Only 4.6 pounds to go to meet my goal before surgery. HAPPY!

We got a much better estimate on one of the repairs we need to make before we can sell the house, plus one of the other repairs is being covered under our warranty from work done last fall. Whew!!!!! Also: Scale moving down after removing a few food intolerances from my diet. Yay!

Sarah, that is awesome! emoticon

There are three things I am happy about today/this week:

emoticon I am honored and thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be a part of our team's leadership! Thank you. I hope I can fill my predecessors' shoes!

emoticon I am excited about tomorrow's match between the US and Germany. Yes, I am rooting for my German boys, but if the US wins I'll be happy, too. Our house is divided: One of my sons is rooting for Germany along with me while my other son and my husband are rooting for the US. I wish the game was not during work hours so we could watch it live, but the DVR is set and we sure will catch up tomorrow night. :)

emoticon Our move is almost done and over with. I have just a few items to get from the old home's yard and then we are DONE. We are loving the new house and, while it is a lot of work, it is so much fun arranging all the furniture and decorating in a new home. This weekend we should be done unpacking, after that I will tackle the yard (my vegetables need to go in the ground soon as they are outgrowing their containers and we will change the landscaping of the front and side yard.

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.
