emoticon Snow marionette is so cool... I laughed when I saw him break apart. You look beautiful for Christmas Eve. I will share pics when I get the cell phone we ordered. Believe it or not we have been cell-less or celibacy. My professor DH, works at the college a mile away, I can call or visit anytime. Found a phone with no contract.
Eating foods that energize emoticon emoticon emoticon Good Plan
We aren't going back to hometown Davenport, Iowa this holiday. We go in the spring to avoid bad roads and Buddy does not travel well. So it's just the 3 of us visiting friends. Last Wed. I made 3 soups--- chicken, bean and veggie to mix and match. We can eat when hungry. I added more water too with lots of bathroom visits emoticon
Took a while to put together new recumbent bike but tomorrow I will be riding to emoticon and get in those exercise minutes.
So far so good--- no unhealthy treats...
emoticon Jolly emoticon Holidays
emoticon emoticon This dog looks like LUCY emoticon

Aura, it is so wonderful to have someone sparking on this thread! Thank you! emoticon

I've added what I want to give my self for a present this year! It is to get back into the 180's. I am just ounces away, today! Down 6# since Thanksgiving! I cut out dairy & sweets & eating only foods that energize me! Makes a HUGE difference & more water, 12 cups rather than 10.

emoticon 12-24-16 Merry Christmas! emoticon Happy happy Holiday! Picture (1999) of my snow marionette, Frosty! Made in 1967, by my family! Snow that doesn't melt! He is a trick marionette, he 'breaks-a-part' & goes back together, as he skates. emoticon emoticon Be the joy emoticon you want & I will too! emoticon

emoticon Santa Marionette is really sweet with the baby. Looks like a fun holiday tradition. We went to the mall, it wasn't crowded and employees are festive with costumes. Saw Christmas lights around town set to music. I'm just thankful we didn't get a big snow storm.
Peace and Joy

On track today with meal plan and fitness! emoticon
My dog has pancreatitis and we keep him on a special diet. Still he had an attack this summer with dehydration. Buddy consumes all my time when he is sick. I lost a job once because he was sick. It wasn't a great job anyway.
Hope everyone is well soon emoticon emoticon

emoticon I've been eating low carb for most of the year, mostly soups and veggie smoothies 1/2 scoop of protein. Water is key and It takes a conscious effort daily especially in the cold weather. I blend an organic whole lemon with some water to store in fridge to last 4 days. It's thick with the lemon rind so a little everyday with hot water. emoticon
emoticon Keeping active with challenges and deep cleaning my home. Today I'm going swimming emoticon

Here is a blog with article about the holiday gains. I figure if I make it through this season without a gain then next year I will know what works! emoticon emoticon

Buddy sits on my lap sometimes he takes his paw and closes the lid to turn off laptop emoticon


Have a good day! I will visit again... I am so focused on making it a huge grand total pounds down this year. It helps to support each other. Wow to look good on stage... that is a good incentive. Returned to college for Master's 5 years ago and I would practice presentations in front of mirror. I feel a lot better in my clothes the lowest weight in 10 years.

I had a good start 2016 with WW, lost 35 pounds in 3 months. Then stalled till I joined WW again in the summer for another 20 in three months. I did Sparks the whole year too, it all works together. 252 to 177 and counting down to 2017. emoticon

Welcome!!!!!

I'm making a "Mexican salad" to go with the chili my Mom in law will be making. A little unconventional, but good for us!

My todays' sharing:
emoticon 12-18-16 Today I am down 4# since I have added more water emoticon , veggie & fruits emoticon . Living on homemade soups & my green smoothie! Cut out ALL un-energy foods. No really big difference, really! I saw a photo of me & didn't like the view! I have performances in January, REALLY helps me focus! I do not want to be a statistic, ( average American gains 12 # between Halloween & Valentines day! YIKES!!!!) As always I'm Walking emoticon & dancing with LUCY emoticon , too! Increased exercise minutes to at least 150 per day. That is actually easy for me! Choose the health you want with what you have & I will, too! emoticon

emoticon Uff-Da Minnesota (funny song about winter) emoticon
www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncpDFvjdIy0
I want to have a different winter season than last year with a big re-gain. I lost weight this year, still I'm getting nervous. More than once since the cold and snow started, I did not want to step on the scale. Then I recall, last winter I avoided the scale and ate mindlessly the whole season (gained 40 pounds in 5 months (Sept-Jan.) I have been weighing-in recording my results and evaluating the previous day with the dot system on StartYourDiet.com.

How are you doing preparing for next Saturday and Sunday?
Whats on your Holiday Menu?

My Christmas Present to me, this year 2015, is new Zumba shoes & a new top, They are in the mail & I will 'open' them on Christmas Morning. My gift for being dedicated to SP! I am still 7# over, but keep 'playing' at getting back to my main goal. It might just be my body likes it at this higher weight, BUT I would rather be a bit trimmer!

12-9-15 Tidings from my day, my amazing life: emoticon
emoticon I try to laugh out loud many times a day! When stress comes, as it does to all of us, I take a few moments & breathe deeply & try to change my out look to choose how I will react, instead of just reacting. I have to REALLY focus on doing this, but it IS changing my life! emoticon
This is my Mom, we were performing about 2002, with her Scarecrow, she made him (1967) & is gifting him to me, this year for Christmas! Lucky ME! emoticon FULL!

Today I woke up & 'got it', the desire to fit into my jeans emoticon , tone up & get ready for my goal of 7# release by Xmas! Sheppard Pilates DVD is helping with my toning, (I've increase to 3 times a week, my gage is my hips, 2" smaller makes my clothes fit GREAT!) eating right for 2 days now, all ready DOING it! emoticon Plus adding an extra 15 minutes to my walks with LADY LUCY THE WONDEROUS CIRCUS DOG, she's thrilled for this! emoticon

I also bought my 'CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO MYSELF' (my team) & can't use it until I reach my goal. It is my inspiration! It is lovely! So every time I go to eat something 'not clean' I will remember this beautiful Angel Lapis Wand! emoticon I truly believe a calorie is NOT a calorie! If food doesn't energize me, I should not be putting it in my mouth! emoticon emoticon

Where is my motovation? Seems to be not a huge deal this year! What has worked for me before, doesn't seem to be working this year! Hurting my arm & 3 months healing has seemed to put me into a different mind set. Darn!

You've Been Jingled! The Christmas Elves are traveling around Bringing good tidings to Spark Pages they've found. Leaving you a goodie for a happier season. Continue this jingling now you've got a good reason. First, if you find this Elf smiling back at you, You must send him onward without much ado. This will ensure the Elves know of your visit. Be sure to join in 'cause you won't want to miss it! Give two "Elf" goodies to some Spark friends, Deliver them as quickly as you can send. Leaving a goodie is certainly fun, To act like an Elf and then run, run, run! You'll have to be quick - now's the time to begin. You only have until Christmas Day to make a friend grin. For it's every Christmas Elf's delight, To make everyone's holiday merry and bright. This Christmas Elf's wish is to bring everyone Joy, An army of Elves we must help Santa deploy! This is all in good fun for I just want to say, Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday! Copy this poem and send this Elf to 2 or more Spark friends..

There's something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart;

A hug's a way to share the joy
Or just a way for friends to say
They like you 'cause you're you.
Happy Sunday

OK, my dress doesn't fit yet.... 4 more #'s to go down! I'm thinking of focusing on waist measurement, instead! Not sure how that works! emoticon

I love it...


Years ago... I would put wrapped gifts out for all the kids and hubby as soon as our tree was up (right after Thanksgiving) well... DH would always wait till last min... they saw all the gifts from me... But... I saw my gifts a day or two before Christmas... I shared my disappointment with hubby... and sure enough the next year... the same experience... sooo... One year... I bought me a gift in Sept.... (along with many other gifts I was purchasing) I wrapped it and put it under the tree with all the rest that year... (I wrapped it immediately and forgot what I got)
Said to Deby from ME... they all laughed at me... I was happy ...and I said Why I bought it for myself... I had a gift early like the rest...

Needless to say... the next year... DH... had a gift for me by Thanksgiving... and I have been buying me a gift ever since. For a different reason now... cause DH always gets my gifts and wrap them early....




~*~ LOVE ~&~ BLESSings ~*~ ALLways ~*~Deby~*~

My husband and I went out on our date night and we are almost done with all of our Christmas shopping! I told him about this team, and the present. I don't have very many things that actually fit me right now, even though I have been this size for a year I still wear my fat clothing day to day and for dressy occasions I have 2 tops and one pair of black dress pants that are my size right now. My dear sweetheart said "lets get something that you can wear for Christmas eve and day.

I have a hard time finding things that fit well because I am so short and still sort of round. But I found 3 tops that I liked, so which one to put back???? Probably the expensive one : ( BUT no Bertie said we are getting them all!!! I was so surprised!! It isn't the best time to splurge but we do have Christmas money left over. He is the best of men, my love.

GREAT idea! I JUST bought the MOST beautiful white leather jacket,(by Wilson) that ALMOST fits in perfect condition!. Just a tiny bit tight in the shoulders. I thought long & hard about it! It was at Goodwill & marked WAY above my budget! SOOOOOOOOO I went to the manager & asked for a reconsideration on the price. She brought it down, almost 40%! (I've released 40 #'s so far). SO this is going to be my tangible gift for under the tree from ME!

I AM going to try VERY hard to release the 5 #'s, by Christmas. It is apart of the last 10.4 to go. I won't get angry with myself if I don't make it, as I am SO happy to be getting MYSELF back, no matter what!

I just came out of ZUMBA class, my 3rd one. (I had decided to make the snow white jacket my gift to myself, if I learn ZUMBA, a little everyday!) I LOVE IT SO MUCH! The instructor suggested I start thinking of being an instructor, as I am learning, ME!?!! She thinks I have a nack for it! A year a ago, I couldn't have dreamed of this at all! NOW I'm dreaming of me dancing all the time & learning the HOW's of it. AMAZING!!!!! More playing & dancing & less sitting & eating!

I love this team, too! You are all so fun! Thanks for your support! I look forward to seeing how you are doing, with your goals, too!

Sparkles,

BHSKITTYKATT ~ I'm an enabler...tee hee hee...
Debby ~ I neeeed shoes too. I love that idea but,
Shel's idea sounds like so much fun.

...I'm still thinking on it...Maybe if I delegate the gift wrapping to my daughter she'll toss in that shirt of hers I've been coveting...one never knows with 13 y.o....

Okay, I figured out what I'm gonna do. I'm giving my bestie some cash and asking her to buy and wrap something for me. I can't stand knowing what my present is ahead of time, so I'd rather have it be a surprise. FUN!

Sounds like fun. Also, gives me an excuse to go shopping!

I've been stuck at a plateau forever, and have kind of been just like "Oh, well". This gives me a nice, firm deadline to get my tush into gear!

For Christmas you're gifting yourself a 5 lb weight loss, how about wrapping up a lil' sumthin', sumthin' that you can tangibly unwrap when you reach that goal?
Keep it a secret and then when you get to that goal share the unveiling celebration with a vlog/blog so that we get to share in your celebration.
It can be as inexpensive as a dollarstore funky nail polish that you've been coveting, or it could be tickets to Aruba.
Whatever floats your boat and gives ya giggle.
