Sounds like everyone is having a great Woo Hoo Wednesday in terms of weight loss and looking forward to a day of family.

My Woo Hoo is that my feet are healing well and I can go back to the gym on Monday! Who would have thought I missed it so much? I'm also looking forward to tomorrow because I love the food and am anxious to see what tasting ONE BITE of everything I love (we bring a LOT of dishes to the table on Thanksgiving) will be like if I spread my eating out over an hour or so. Since my stomach will only hold about 4 ounces, this will be be a challenge to not overeat and yet to enjoy the goodies.

My 5-year weight loss anniversary is tomorrow. I'd really wanted to be back at the 100 lbs lost line for it, after going from 105 lbs lost to 85 lbs lost when I moved across the country. I'm NOT going to be there tomorrow, but I AM back to 99 lbs lost today, which is close enough for me! Woohoo for health!

That's awesome Amanda!! You're building awesome memories with your little sister.

My emoticon for today… I have gone a full week without munching any leftovers, or treats off Riley's (my 4 year old) plate. Haven't' done that in a veeeeery long time.

Been awhile since I responded here. I have a non-Spark-related WooHoo!

So I have a half-sister, Julia, who is 11 years old. She's a writer like her big sister, and she's been participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) every November for the last few years. Twelve days into the month, she's already written over 42,000 words on her novel!!! I am so very proud of her. The two of us have been doing a pass-along back and forth story since I moved up north, and she write so well, not at all like a typical 11 year old. I can't wait to see her again in December! She's the reason I originally moved from Wisconsin to San Antonio back in fall 2005 (when she was two years old).

Even though I only got about four hours of sleep, I hit the trails this morning for a walk/run in pouring rain. I enjoyed being in the rain and the 59 degree temperature was perfect. I have not been exercising much lately between several severe migraines and being exhausted from insomnia. Today, I got back on track. WooHoo!

Happy emoticon Wednesday to you too, Sarah!

My emoticon is that I made it to the gym this morning with Justin. I'm working on being more consistent and he has not been to the gym with me in over a year, so the fact that we both went together this morning made me really happy/proud!

I'm super excited that the elections are over. No more stupid hate-filled ads, and the political signs littering the roadways!

sorry. I am excited to vote and for my freedom, but the ads and signs I get super tired of, not the process! emoticon

So many great Woo Hoos going on!

I can't believe I forgot to post mine. It's a doozy!

I cried at the gym Wednesday morning. Yep, big, fat, rolling down my cheeks tears. I wasn't in pain...yes! I wasn't in pain! That's why I was crying! Sweet Jennifer (UNSTOPPABLEJEN) showed me a move with the foam roller that the therapist never did to release/break up the fascia in the IT band area. I was able to bend my right leg and kick it back further than I have in a year and a half.

Woo Hoo!

I still only have about 60-70 % pain-free range of motion compared to my left leg, but before this morning it was only at about 30%. Big improvement! I just love Jenn so much for her help and support! Spark friends are the best! Woo Hoo!

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

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!

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 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

I'm psyched because I am finally feeling my creative juices flowing a bit more. I wrote a blog today, and yesterday I finished a chapter I've had hanging in limbo for a few months. Better attitude, better focus!

My Woo Hoo today is that my beautiful granddaughter Robyn turns 1 today!

I'm also saying emoticon to staying on track with my food and exercise, even though the scale stopped moving a few days ago. Getting in 45 minutes to an hour of fitness each and every day...and that is a big 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

Lots of GREAT Woo Hoos today!

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

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.

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.
