And a Happy Hump Day to you as well! I too have been AWOL but I let a friend stay with me for the last 2 weeks & has turned my life into a total disaster. I tried to help her get her life back on track but she really did not want the help so I took her back to her daughters Saturday night. My home is once again peaceful-lol!

It's Hump Day again! Happy Hump Day! emoticon

Sorry to have been awol for so long. I got completely off track for a while but am happy to say that I found my way back. Unfortunately I also found some of the weight I had previously lost and it attached itself to me. Oh well, it is what it is. Onward!

It's been a while...hope all y'all are doing well.

Happy Hump Day to you, Jody!

Jody, thanks so much! I'm hoping not to fall too far off the rails!!!!! emoticon

Yes, I don't know how someone could just abandon a animal. We were on a nature trial walk and Cinnamon just started following us. I couldn't leave him there to die. He was so skinny. Now you wouldn't know it! He'd eat all day if I let him. Angel is normal eating and Cinnamon an overeating. LOL Go figure. Kinda funny!

Funny...I thought you knew I had 2!! They're fun to watch. Looks like Cinnamon will be on a special diet the rest of his life. So 2 different cat foods. One for Cinnamon and 1 for Angel. I have to make sure Cinnamon doesn't sneak Angels.

Hope your day is going well and you're on track!

Hi Debbie ~ Thank you for posting a pic of your adorable fur babies. I remember your earlier post about Angel wanting to cuddle when it was so hot but I thought Angel might have been a nickname. Duh, it never occurred to me that you had 2 cats. Sorry. Omg that is so sad about poor little Cinnamon. Thank you so much for giving him a loving home & family.

I'm sorry to hear that you're not having the success you did last month, but you ARE having some and that's AWESOME!!! Just keep giving it the best you can one day @ a time. Oh and NEVER GIVE UP!!! Maybe August is your month?!?!

Y'all have a Healthy, Happy Day!!!

Jody, the other cat is Angel. And he is an angel! He's very loving. They haven't cuddled like that since that pic. It was when I first got Angel. It was too adorable not to take. I got Angel 2 years ago and Cinnamon 3 years ago. We found Cinnamon in the woods. I wasn't planning on having a cat! Let alone 2!!! We couldn't leave him in the woods. I can't believe someone left him there. We checked the neighborhood. No one knew where that cat belonged. We're thinking he was 9 months when we found him. He was so skinny. Then my DH wanted a playmate for him. We got Angel from PetSmart. He stole my heart. He is so lovable. He likes to cuddle where Cinnamon doesn't.

I'm glad you're doing well with your plan. I'm on and off track. I was doing so awesome in June. Now July....not as well. Let's do this! emoticon emoticon

emoticon Hello Everyone! Hope you're having a good Monday! emoticon

Debbie ~ Ah yes ...pain meds. Rueben thinks he's Super Dog when he's on them. It's a catch 22. As you've said, we don't want them to be in pain but they don't realize that even tho they don't feel as much pain @ the moment if they don't rest they will hinder their recovery. I'm so happy Cinnamon is feeling so much better. Your fur babies look adorable. Thanx for sharing. Who is Cinnamon's friend?

I think I am making progress Debbie. Thank you for asking. And you?
I totally agree.

Jody, I guess we don't want it under our belt!!! We do want it out the window! LOL
Yes, Cinnamon is back to normal. In fact the very next day he was fine. These fur babies are like our own human babies. We care for them so much and don't want them to be in pain. Between the pain meds and prescription cat food he was fine the very next morning and has great since. He is getting spoiled. They love the wet cat food. My other cat gets jealous in the morning when Cinnamon gets the wet and he gets the dry. I think soon I can put him on dry in the morning and special at night. Usually at night I have always given them both the wet. It's such a treat for them!

How is your plan going, Jody? Making progress?

Debbie ~ Is Cinnamon still feeling better? I'm so sorry you both had to go thru that. It's so worrisome when you know something is wrong but they can't tell you what it is. I sure hope he's well again very soon.
I do believe it about the food. Rueben's vet. stocks a whole assortment of the stuff.

emoticon You are so funny. Out the window is a better place for your sugar than under your belt lol. But it sounds like you have it under control. BIG fat KUDOS to you!!
So are you going to join us for weigh-in this Thursday since your challenge is over? Eating right and exercising sounds like you're just asking to drop some pounds eh?

July is almost over Ladies! There are 2 weeks left!! Still time to make a difference if you've been slacking a bit. emoticon or Get Pushing!! emoticon

Happy Saturday Morning!!!!

I had to bring my Cinnamon to the Vet yesterday. Poor baby was having trouble with his urinating. I thought he might of had an infection. We brought him in the morning. Finally at 4:40 the Vet was able to get some urine from him and run a test. He had crystals in his urine. Which could have become stones. She gave us some meds for pain. The sweetie was in pain but wasn't even complaining about it. She also gave us some prescription cat food. Can you believe that!! It's working because today he's back to himself and having no problems. Thank God!

Jody, so glad I've been an inspiration to you! I love all your support and encouragement!!! Well my dear friend, my sugar went out the window. What I mean by that is I'm not quite gotten it all under my belt. I've been having it here and there. I'm not overeating on it at all. I'm fitting it in. I guess I can't stop it entirely. I've been doing well with my eating. Exercise has been going well.

Patti, my goodness!!! So surprised to hear of your great weight loss. That is so awesome. Too bad you had to have stress along the way. The world we live in none of escape that.

emoticon um Thank you Patti. So happy your yesterday was terrific, mine too.
Hoping everyone's today is FAB - U - LOUS!!!

204!!! Holy cow!!! emoticon that's less than I currently weigh and I am only 5'2". No offense intended. I'm not making fun, honest. I'm really sorry that the rest of your weight loss has been through the means you mentioned. Not good.
That is great advice Patti. It's to our advantage if we remain flexible in our pursuit of a healthier life. We CAN all do it! We have it within us to do so.

Keep thinking those Healthy Thoughts thru the weekend!

Jody, you are so awesome! And yes I had a terrific Thursday! How was yours!

When I joined Spark I was way overweight. I actually got up to 204! But through Spark I managed to lose 60 of it. Stress & some health issues have helped with the rest-lol!
And sometimes when you find something that is working for you, it can change & you need to try something different. YOU CAN DO IT!!
And to the rest of you ladies, you can do it too!

I emoticon this team. Y'all R so sweet. Thank you for the emoticon .
It's always good to hear from everyone but I most certainly understand not being able to spark for various reasons.

Patti ~ Have you been able to add any weight to yourself? Isn't it strange the way life works. Some people think they would love to have the weight problem that you do. I hope all is well with you. Hugs

Debbie ~ KUDOS to you for sticking to those workouts! How's the no sugar challenge going?
My journey is going well. I think I've finally found what works for me! Of course it's still a work in progress and always will be but hopefully it can only get better. I need to improve on the fitness aspect of it and I have to say that following you & Patti and seeing your consistent workouts sure helps to spark my motivation!

Hey there Jody girl! I've been a bit busy. I was on here and Spark wasn't opening up pages for. So never got on here. I've been getting in my workouts. I went to Gym already this morning. 20 minutes on treadmill. It looks like it could rain. It was sunny and now all of a sudden has clouded up! It sounds like your journey is going well. Great job!!! Hope you have an awesome weigh in today!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm doing good. My weight is up a bit from last Thursday but I think it's because I'm not eating enough. I just don't get hungry with this new way of eating (woe). Wow! I've never said that before!

Good morning!!! Another beautiful day here and probably hot outside. Haven't cracked the door open yet ; ) We are waiting for a guy to come to repair some trim by the back door where we had a water leak. Hope he won't be too long getting here. I want to hit the pool! I need to work on getting more exercise and drinking more water. I think with the heat and not getting enough water that I'm storing what I do drink. Typical for me in the hot weather.
I ordered myself a new swim suit yesterday from swimsuitsfor all.com Good prices! I'm slowly replacing my old wardrobe. Was hoping to be down a bit more right now, but will get more new things when I need them. I don't require much since we don't go anywhere I have to dress up a lot. Speaking of drinking water, I think I'm due for a cup. ; ) Have a great day all!!

Debbie ~ I know what you mean about that humidity. This morning @ 68* it was oppressive.
LOL I would trade July for December any day! January...maybe not. But even Jan. has it's perks.
I am doing Great. How about you? I hope you are able to get your walk in too.

Keep thinking Happy, Healthy Thoughts Ladies!!!

Good morning!

I hope your weather gets better for you Patti. It's been humid here the past couple days. It's been upper 70's low 80's. With the humidity seems hot.

Jody, I'd rather have it hot then cold for sure! Hope you're doing well with your plan

Today is going to be upper 70's. Hoping the humidity is down so I can go for a walk

Starting out with a good breakfast keeps me out of the junk for hours. I skipped walking today due to the heat and humidity. Found out I can burn more calories in the pool so sticking with that during the hot weather.
Sure hope I can budge the scales this month. It goes so slowly!!! Hope everyone is doing okay and having a good week.

Good Morning!

I'm doing well here. I just had a really nice breakfast. I made scrambled eggs and steel cut oatmeal with orange juice. Yummy! I feel energized! It's suppose to rain this morning. We'll see. It is pretty humid.

Jody, my eating is going great. Glad to see you're back on track!!!

I was out for my walk shortly after 6 today and it was already 78 degrees!! Very slimy with humidity too ; ( If this keeps up I guess I'm going to just do the pool for exercise. Hate coming home feeling so yucky! With the heat index it will be over 100 here.
Hope everyone had a good 4th. We had a great day! I've been having trouble getting back on my teams lately. Just another mood emoticon Some days I can't handle the simplest task!
I'm really trying this month to get some weight off. I'm watching what I eat and trying to get my 8 cups of water daily. Sure need it with this heat!
Hitting the pool probably after noon. I'm not much of a swimmer, but I keep in motion ; )
Have a great day everyone!!!

Good Morning Team!

Today is going to be 90, Jody. It was suppose to be yesterday. I think it got to 79 yesterday. It really wasn't too bad. Today is suppose to be the hot one.

Jody, I don't have sweeteners. I never did. The only sweetener I had was a diet soda. I was drinking diet soda when we'd go out. No more. I'm not going to do that anymore. It's addictive and now saying can cause belly fat. I've gone without sugar before. And I felt great!!! I'm like you, if I have some it sets off cravings and I want more and more. When I'm off sugar I feel so good in so many ways. The first 3-5 days have been hard when stopping it. Once off I think I should stay off and go for the fruits!

Jody, you can get right back on track. Let's do this! Today, is day 1 no sugar!!!

Happy Independence Day Everyone! emoticon
Hope you all are enjoying what's left of the holiday weekend.

Debbie ~ Best of Luck to you on your 21 Day NO Sugar Challenge. Once you get over the cravings I know you'll feel like a new person. So many people are switching to the "healthier" sweeteners but IMO they still keep your taste buds keyed to the taste of sweet. I hope you are able to allow yourself the occasional treat. I can not. Just one taste and I lose control then have to start all over again dealing with the cravings and all. It's not worth it.
Your weather is usually an indication of what we can expect in a day or two. The day it was in the low 70s was heaven. Mid 80s of late. 90 for you today = 90 for us mid week. Next week will be a killer.

Patti ~ I 2nd that "Good hearing from you". Hope you are doing well.

Eileen ~ Glad you dropped in.

Three more days until weigh-in Ladies! Knuckle down!

HAPPY emoticon emoticon emoticon 4TH OF JULY!!!

Oh Jody!! Sugar is the worst! It's cancer favorite food! I have cut way back. I'm allowing myself a treat once in a while. Although my plan starting on the 5th is to go 21 days without sugar and see how I feel. I've gone off and on sugar. I feel so much better off it. I think I may take it all the way out.

Today, I did some errands. Going to make my shopping list for the week on things I'll need for this coming week.

It's been really nice weather here. I even have windows and doors open today. Suppose to be 75. It's going to be 90 on the 4th. They are saying the humidity is coming back.

Have a great weekend!

Happy July Ladies! emoticon

Debbie ~ Thank You

Eileen ~ Happy to see you back. Great goal for July giving up baked goods.
Sugary carbs are my nemesis. Sugar has no nutritional value and in fact subtracts from our health and hydrogenated oils are the worst of all the fats to put into our bodies! I have to admit tho that they are hard to resist. I just tell myself that I might as well just eat rat poison and get it over with as to eat that garbage. Harsh I know but whatever it takes.....

The week is coming to an end and it's a Holiday weekend for a double whammy but the month is Brand Sparking New so let's revamp our efforts! Don't start July in the hole.

I'm back! I guess I must be losing it....... I forgot to come by the team! I usually check in first thing in the morning before the day gets away from me, but I guess my heat had been in a spin or something.
Glad to see that others are doing okay. I didn't weigh in this week, but will next week. I'm hoping to get weight off this month. Set myself a goal of no baked goods. I have been cheating a bit. I can't have much to start with since I can't have much gluten, but a little here and a little there adds up ; ( Grabbing the fruit and getting in my 8 cups of water. Trying to do my walk every day and when I go to the pool I'm either swimming or treading water/walking in place. Trying to keep moving. Hope everyone is doing okay.

Hi Debbie ~ So happy you're feeling better and.....That's VERY AWESOME about your monthly totals! You certainly ROCKED June! Congrats!!!!! Doin' the Happy Dance!!

I am down 5 lbs. for the month but since I had to re-shed 3.8 lbs. that I found during the month I think that's pretty good.

This is emoticon If we keep this up just imagine where we'll be Aug.1st! emoticon

Good Morning!

I'm feeling pretty great today! For the month of June, I lost 7.6 lbs and 4.5 inches. That's pretty awesome! Since I had been stuck and off track for a month! YAY!!!

I was up 0.6 this morning. I did eat out yesterday and restaurants use a lot of salt. My DH says, it's water weight! :) We'll see what happens next week!

Jody, actually that 1 lb was from last week. I forgot to update it last week. emoticon I'll be weighing in tomorrow to see what I have. I'm feeling like it won't be much. Feeling kinda bloated. Hope it's something. I hope your weigh in is great and thanks for the goodie!!!!

Jody, thanks! I hope to keep it up! Planning on it anyway. Yes, the weather has been so great. Today is going to be the same. Went on a walk to gym yesterday and did the treadmill for 20 minutes. So all and all I got 60 minutes of exercise!

Planning on a walk after my appointment today!

Eileen ~ Thank you. Great attitude! emoticon it! Yes, I'm afraid He's probably not to happy with the way some of us have taken care of the temples he's gifted us. Time to rectify that. As far as setting goals I take it one day @ a time as I am a self-saboteur. But I think it's awesome that it works for you guys. Congrats on staying away from the chocolate. Sugar does terrible things to your body - same as putting it in your gas tank.

Have a Healthy Day!

Time to start thinking about some goals for July. I have been successful giving up chocolate for June so time to do something different. Still staying away from chocolate! It's a major trigger for disaster for me!
Anyone else have any special plans/goals for July?? Have a great day!

All week has been beautiful! Nice temps and humidity down. Today not so! It's going to be 90 and the humidity is already WAY up. I guess I won't get a walk in today. I'll either go to the gym or do one of my DVD's.

Have an awesome weekend!

Up early this morning and out for my walk. It's been HOT here and very humid so I get back from my walk a wash of sweat. Will be hitting the pool today for sure! How about a week in the 90's???? Anyone want to come visit ; )
Staying determined to get this weight off! It comes off slowly, but at least its coming off!
Hope everyone is having a good week. Get out and do something fun this weekend if you have it free. Be sure to make it a healthy one.

Hello! Checking in on my teams before the day gets away from me. It's a nice one here too. Going to be in the upper 80's so a great day for the pool. Should be going down soon!
I refuse to accept the number on the scale this morning!!! A three pound gain??? No way!! I think it was all the salt I got in yesterday. Eating breakfast and dinner out was my sodium intake for the month!! Felt very bloated last night and thirsty. Just going to get my water in today and let the scale be for a while. I know from non scale victories it's wrong! What ever. It's not dulling my determination!!!
Hope everyone is doing okay. Yesterday was a great day for me and I did celebrate my birthday this year. I'm 65! Can't believe it ; ) Time to finish the laundry and get into my swim suit. The pool is calling my name ; )

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

The "cold front" made it over to us too. It is a much welcomed relief if only for a few days.

Debbie ~ emoticon getting those walks in and staying on track. Your Angel sounds like an Angel. I think I might not mind having a 101.5* bundle of hot, loving fur on me either. Lol.

Patti ~ ENJOY your "weekend".

Everyone have a Healthy Day!

Good Morning!

Today we're having a cool down. Only 80 today. LOL Yesterday was hot and humid. It was a stay inside day. I went for a walk earlier this morning. (8:00 instead of 9:00) It was a bit cooler. 66. I guess other people had the same idea! emoticon emoticon Felt great getting that in. I continue to remain on track. So thankful for that!

Jody, funny!! Yes! too hot to wear fur!

Patti, was too hot for kitties. BUT their too adorable not to hold. Especially Angel, he loves to snuggle up by my neck. Then sometimes he'll lay in my lap like a little baby!

Keep at it everyone, We can do it! emoticon

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Sounds like the heat is hitting everywhere. Same here in Florida but we haven't had it as hot as some parts of the country! Wow! Out west I see it's in the 100's! No thanks ; )
Have had a couple days of the feeling that my head was in a blender. Just anxious, antsy, can't focus and just basically a mess. Had to take a break from my computer. Back now and determined to be rid of that feeling. It comes now and then. Guess that is the way I'm wired ; )
Still doing okay with my eating and getting in my walk and water daily. I am taking today off from walking though. Going out for breakfast this morning and hope later to hit the beach if we don't get thunder storms again. Had a vicious one yesterday!
Have a great day everyone! Make it a healthy one.

Happy Saturday,

My cat is attached to me today! It's a hot one here too. In fact tomorrow is suppose to be 90! I think it's going to be a hot summer this year. Stay cool everyone.

I continue to stay on track. Today, with it being too hot to got for a walk I'm having some cravings. Pushing through until it's time to eat.

Talk soon!

Yes someone has misplaced the thermostat for the Sun and it is out of control! I suspect one of those Crazy,Summer loving peeps. Oh well, sweating is supposed to be a good thing. Right?

Good Morning! It is hot here but I got the house cleaned & I will be getting ready for work shortly. I work 3-midnite on Saturdays as it is Tag night at Walgreens-lol! (that is where we pull down the weekly sale stickers & put new ones up which are usually the same as what we pulled down. I call it an exercise in redundancy-lol!)
Have a great day!

What a Wonderful Morning rain and all! My Sparkfriends are dropping pounds as if they were hot potatoes and I am so very happy for them! LOL unfortunately some of those pounds have landed on ME! No worries. I know that if there were blame to be placed it would be all mine.
But enough of that. There is CELEBRATING to be done!
emoticon emoticon Debbie. That is emoticon and motivational. Great PFD (plan for the day) too. And thank you for the support. It's greatly appreciated.

Good Morning!

I continue to stay on track! It has paid off! I've lost 5 lbs this week. Getting back on track has rewarded me. I'm sure every week won't be like that. My first week back on track weigh in gave me the motivation to not give up now! I plan on staying within my boundaries of eating today. I plan on getting in some form of activity and exercise.

Jody, you can do it. Don't stay away if you're struggling. You're missed!

Patti, This is our year!

Have an awesome day All!

That is truly a wonderful & inspiring mission statement, Eileen! And I so agree with you that it is all about staying healthy! Keep up the winning attitude!

And Debbie, I am with on that this is my year to get back on track! I have been sidelines by so many personal issues that I have found it is affecting my motivation. Thanks for the Pick Me Up!

I'm determined to make this year my success year. I know I can make my goal if I just work at it! I just have to ask myself every time I reach for something not healthy "is that really work the calories?? Is that going to help you get to your goal??" I refuse to give up everything, but need to keep it to a minimum. It's all about staying healthy!
Hope everyone is doing okay so far this month. Today is the half way point of the month. So far I am doing good on my challenges. Got to start thinking of something for next month ; )
Have a great day everyone!!

Wow Patti! That's awesome! 5.7 miles! Good for you!

Today, I was on track. Stayed within my boundaries. It feels so good being on track . I'm refusing to go back. This is my year to get to goal and stay!

I got in 25 minutes on my DVD. Yesterday, I got 10,015 steps.

Good morning!

I had another good day on track yesterday! Plan the same for today. I got in 20 minutes on DVD WATP. That always feels good. It was too humid to walk yesterday. I had an appt yesterday and it was hot. The temp was lower. Once that humidity is up like that, it feels so much hotter then it is. I'd rather have it hot then cold. I need to move to a dyer climate. Have a good on program day. You can do it!

Good Monday morning, Jody and everyone! Good to be back posting and in the groove of things. Hope things are well with you Jody!

Today not as hot. It's going to be 78 and sunny. I should be able to get a walk in outside. Everyone have a great on program day.

Took today off from walking although we did get a lot in when we stopped at Walmart for a couple items. They were at opposite ends of the store so we basically walked it all ; )
