Good morning!
Yay on your 10k steps Karen! Go get em! I'm kind of on hold with my gallstones & foot. no more dance classes until foot is fixed. Grrrr. Well, next week, hubby will be out of town, but if I have it figured right, I have about 56 hours worth of work scheduled! That's awesome! Although I won't get a lot of much needed rest, there WILL be money in the bank! And NO- I don't have to do ALL the work myself- but the majority is me. My girls will cover the pet sitting part of it :) So, about 38 hours will be me :)
I probably won't be updating much next week because of it emoticon
So, if I don't get here, Have a great week all! emoticon emoticon

Morning SP friends,
My mom is back in bed, after breakfast, so I will get some mileage in with DVD and dancing.

Have plans to start work in my closets, changing winter for summer. This is always fun, because I find last years 'sales' that I have forgotten.

Still moving to the beat,
Karen

Good Morning to SP Friends:

It has been a rough weekend with hubby. Over the weekend he fell down twice- luckily without breaking anything! His back pain became so severe, this morning, I took him to the emergency room. Going for an MRI this afternoon. May be a herniated or degenerating disc. Anyway, they filled him with morphine, and need to fill a bunch of prescriptions.
Off to do some work- Have a great day all!
Sam

Good Morning SP Friends,
Hope the morning will bring constructive results. Yesterday, I enjoyed a day off and had chicken fried steak with gravy, mashed potatoes, and chocolate cream pie.
Today, it is back on track with my exercise and attitude. I feel different, my attitude is changing, I am starting to think like a health person; after four months SP must be becoming a habit.

The impossible is possible,
Karen

Hi Karen-
Happy Easter! I hope you have a bit of peace today. I have to get to house cleaning today. Today is the only day I do not have much work, so- must try to make the house look clean-ish. Enjoy today. Get some rest. We'll chat soon.

Good Easter Sunday Morning,

I have been doing OK, have exercised every day this week and keep my diet on track.
Yesterday I treated myself to Apple pie, and pizza.
Today’s lunch is ham, sweet potatoes, green salad, so I will be back on track today with ‘no chocolate rabbits eaten here’. ;-)

My mom is not doing that great and wants to return home for a visit. This will be a 7-day trip, with wheelchair, oxygen, and supplies. We are both excited about the trip.

Happy Easter!
Some Bunny Love You,
Karen

Hello Karen,

Congrats on keeping the "white stuff" out of your diet! You're doing emoticon .
My fur ball seems better. He is still occasionally going after the affected area, but much better. Hubby is at his Dr. appt. right now. Fingers crossed!

Enjoy your shopping! I LOVE to shop- but then I spend WAYYYYY too much, so I don't. Don't worry about plateau's- they happen. No way to avoid them. It will pass.Always does.

I'm in Florida- so no twister damage here. Our problems are Hurricanes!

I own my own Business. Have for 18 years. It used to be strictly a Pet Sitting Service, but we recently expanded and now the Company is: "Run About Town Concierge Errand and Pet Care Service. ". If you are totally bored and want to see the website (recently finished) it's www.runabouttownconcierge.com.

It's a fun job. I have a couple of people who work for me, but as with ANY business owner, I work my tail off- ( too bad it's not literal!).

Take care of you! Breathe! Eat Healthy & get lots of rest.

Sam

Morning Sam,
Hope your 60lb fur-ball is feeling better. Nothing better for an aliment then mothers love.
Hope hubby's new Dr. appointment went well with some answers for his leg muscle weakness. Hope your new Client meetings went perfect and you landed it. What do you do for work?

Today I am headed to town with a girlfriend for some shopping. I will spend most of my $ at Macy's, she will at the material store. We will go while my mom is eating lunch at the Adult Care facility.

Still no 'white-stuff' in my diet, seems like I have hit a plateau or it is the over eating. ;-)
I can always overeat even if it's apples.

Hope if your in the south you are OK, I saw the tornado damage on the news this morning. YIKES!

Have a great day today!
Best wishes your way,
Karen

Hi Karen,

Sounds like you all had a ton of fun! Sometimes, being a little goofy is a healthy outlet for our stresses.
My poor doggie developed a hot spot over the weekend. I treated him, but Monday, he just wouldn't stop licking it, and it is right near his privates, so it's especially irritating. Spent the weekend at home as doggie is a "mama's boy" and although he's 60 lbs, wanted to spend every available second on my lap or right by my side. Went to vet yesterday and got additional medicine. He'll be ok.
Hubby has new Dr. appt.tomorrow in regard to his leg muscle weakness. And today, I have a new Client meeting for the business, and a couple of other client jobs, so, off to start the day.
Take care of you! emoticon emoticon

Hi Sam and all SP friends,
So glad to hear from you. Yes, I am still sugar free, did overeat last night on KFC grilled-chicken, that only happens 1-2x a year. and I didn't even buy the sides so no temptation there.
Today, mom and I are goofing off with Easter decoration, bought some silly rabbit eye-glasses, and foam chicken faces. We are also, making fuzzy chicks out of two yarn-pom-poms glued together with orange feet and beaks, then wiggle eyeballs. They are darling. HA HA no I do not get out much. ;-)
Best wishes you way,
Karen emoticon

Hi Karen,and Sue

Yes, breathing, moving. Sorry- no time to post yesterday. I was busy from 6 am to 11 pm! Whew! Long day! Thank you for checking in on me. I ate out all day yesterday- but did my best to make healthier choices and drank water all day (except for 2 glasses of wine last night) emoticon

How are you Karen? Are you taking time for yourself? How is the sugar addiction. Keeping the devil at bay? Is your mom ok? Take time for you- always!

Sue- are you still out there? Give us an update. Hope all is well with you. Looks like you are doing great with the DVD's! Keep it up.
Happy weekend all! Talk to you soon!
Sam

Good Morning Karen and Canaus, and anyone else who may join our little daily chats!

Well, had a gallstone attack yesterday. 1st one since Jan 9th. OUCH! Man those hurt! The good thing is- Someone said to drink at least 8 oz of water as soon as I felt it and it could make the pain less severe. I don't know if it actually worked or if I just THOUGHT it worked, but I was able to keep from hyperventilating and kept steady long breaths. Had 4 waves- lasted about an hour and residual pain all evening. Just that irritating throbbing that says- "hey, here I am!". Much better this morning. Poor hubby, he freaks when I get these. lol. I tell him to just let me be and I'll get over it.

Anyway, have done zero exercise this week. Have to give hubby a shot in the stomach every morning and every evening for10 days. He had surgery to have his port removed since chemo is over, and we are finally seeing a vascular doctor next week to find out what is going on with his legs and the weakness and swelling.

Anyway- hopefully, this weekend, I can get back into routine. Hubby comes first :)
Keep taking care of you Karen! We caregivers got to stick together! Canaus- congrats on the steps and good luck with the biggest loser challenge. I wish I could do it, but the Dr. told me to only lose 2-3 lbs a month at a time, no more. Apparently, losing weight too quickly is not good for gallstones.

Keep up the good work all!
Sam

Good Morning,
could not sleep, have plans this morning to visit a chair-aerobics class and quilt group, so I lay awake and think about it.

I have been slowing down on my steps, Tuesday 8K, yesterday 5K, so today I have plans...
Canaus can you post the link to "Biggest Loser Challenge" I want to be a part (and, or) watch your blogs.

With Spring almost here, things will start adding up.

Sam are you doing OK? Are you remembering to breath "Smell the Roses / Blow Out the Candles"
My mom has memory problems on top of all the rest, next month I will be attending some Hospice classes on 'activities and understanding the illness'. Am looking forward to any new information.
Best wishes your way,
Karen

Hi all,
Lovingme-I have one Jillian workout and i can get thru about 5 minutes of it.. They are tough workouts but get results. 5 minutes doesn't cut it..*S* Wishing you a successful week too :)
Sam, Happy to hear both of you are OK and didnt' get hurt and managed to get him in the recliner with no injuries.
Karen - The gallstone op was years ago...thinking back here...20 years...but thanks mate..:)
How are you going with your walking? getting those 10,000 steps in? I'm coming close but seem to fall short..i will get there :) averaging 7500 so pretty happy with that number.
I just might give that a try, logging in a notebook!! :)
I'm hoping to get into a group on here BIGGEST LOSER CHALLENGE" and shed 10-15 lbs. It's funny eh, i don't worry about disappointing myself but being apart of a group is a different story and i don't want to let others down.

Have a great week every1
Group hugs

Morning, Hi to all the new SP bloggers,
Lot has been happening,
Sam I hope your husband is doing OK, be careful lifting, even knowing all the moves, that can get you.The other day, after 3+ years of lifting my mom, I felt the middle of my stomach rip, hubby says that is how a hernia feels. No other trouble, just now I am more leery of you lifting to much. Hope Zumba was a big SHRILLY bunch of fun.
Canaus, so sorry about the gallstones, hope your feeling alright today and the high fiber is helping. Do you and Sam eat Fiber-One products? I love the 60 calorie cereal, 1/2 cup = 14g of fiber. I eat it dry for munches, usually 1 cup daily.
Congratulation on all your steps, I got about the same yesterday and will try for 10K today. Put in a mile first thing and will go do another RIGHT NOW.
Hope to SP-mail you soon.
As for logging in your food, to save time, after 3 months of SP logging, I just scribble it down in my notebook. Seems to save time.

BEST WISHES YOUR WAY,
Karen

Good morning all!

Rough night. After hubby's surgery yesterday, he couldn't sleep well, and around 3am, tried to get in his recliner, slipped and fell. Luckily, he did not hurt himself, but has severe muscle weakness and was unable to get himself up. It is NO easy task lifting a 180 lb man, but we managed! Anyway, on to the other stuff-

Yes, Canaus... may be a blessing! I'm sorry you had to go through gallstones. As you know, the pain is quite intense! I have had 5 episodes in 3 years. Wouldn't wish that pain on anyone. So, now I eat low fat, low cholesterol, and high fiber. And I exercise.. Dancing is my favorite. Zumba and Jazzercize. Unfortunately, I missed Zumba yesterday due to hubbys need, but have Jazzercize today :)

Karen, hope you are having a fabulous morning and hello to new sparkfriends!!!!

Big huge support hug to all!!!
Sam

Hello Everyone! I hope all is well. I am really thinking about getting Jillian's Body Revolution. I have all of her other stuff. I have also been playing with the idea of joining a gym. There is one in my area that is 15.00 without a contract, so we will see. I love working out at home though. Anyway, I hope that everyone has a really successful week.

Hi all :)
Sounds like you had a great busy week Sam. You are our social butterfly of the week~~ :)

Having gallstones might be a blessing, sort of forces you to eat healthier foods or put up with the pain from eating greasy foods. Once you are away from greasy food you will stop craving it..or so i hear..
In my care that didnt' happen and i would eat something i shouldn't and end up at the hospital for shots of demerol and eventually had an op and a six in scar..ugg...i now have this hernia over my scar and a huge lump..so...try and eat healthy...:)


I have been checking out the recipes on here and printing them at work and looking like a busy little bee!!
There are alot of healthy recipes i want to try when the cooking urge hits me. (not one of my favorite things to do) My stepdaughter comes over once a week or so and cooks ..i will print her a copy too..hehe!!

Karen--i got in 7758 steps in yesterday. woot woot!!

Stuck to my eating plan ..need to work on the water though..

Boss is sick today so will work on 10,000 steps during work hours and wash my car.

Have a great day all!!!

group hugs

Good Morning SP friends- Karen, Canaus, all others!
Looking forward to a great week. Hubby is going into the hospital today for an outpatient procedure. Then I have to talk to his Dr. about a small relapse on one of his auto-immune disorders.
I don't go out much normally, but last week, I had 5 social activities in 5 days!
Wed- a free concert on the beach. Thursday: Dinner and the play "My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish and I'm in Therapy". Friday: Another Play- "The Producers". A friend was in it! and Saturday was the free Blue Oyster Cult Concert in a nearby city. By nearby- I mean a 10 minute drive. and Finally, Sunday- had lunch with an old friend I had not seen in 2 years! All that socializing and I was VERY careful to keep my fat intake under check for the Gallstones! I am starting to like healthier food. But I still LOVE my Belgian chocolate... and my wine :) Hope everyone has a wonderful and productive day! emoticon

Hi Canaus,
You make me smile, you describing the fall-off-the-wagon (shocking eating frenzy) and then the climb back. So glad you are back. Guess this is what SP is all about, getting back with friends and doing it again until we are successful.
Hope you get your 10K steps, I will log-off and try and get a mile or two in.
Thanks for the reminder and the smile,
Karen

Good Sunday Morning,
Sam, glad to see you again emoticon

I found a great SP "15-Minute Desk Workout Video" will add that to my favorites.

It is time to help my mom get up and have breakfast.
Have plans for drive to the duck pond for a pray. Should just go to church, but all the fuss, but maybe we will....

Enjoying a little weight loss, not enough to track, but I think the 'NO White Stuff' is helping, this is day 3 without sugar, flour, potatoes, rice,...

Loads of Love your way,
Karen

Hi Karen,

Still here! Wouldn't THINK of leaving you!

Been super busy all week. Today, FINALLY, a bit of down time! We did go see "The Producers" last night, me, hubby, and sis. A friend of mine was in the show & he was hilarious! If you ever get to see it, It will make you belly split laugh!
Zumba today at 10:30! Oh- and good news! No surgery for my gallstones! At least not yet!

Keeping busy helps the stress! Have a wonderful Saturday!
Sam

Morning Sam and Sp friends,
SP web-site, had troubles yesterday morning so I skipped logging in my nutrition and ... Today everything seems back to normal.

Hope your day off was was fun and Zumba was a "Shrilly" bunch of fun.

I will be printing some pages from "Sugar Busters" book, before returning it to the library, lists of acceptable and unacceptable foods. It could have been published out of that series "books for dummies", the ones I like.

Feeling better and thinking of you,

Hi SP friends,
Thanks for all the blogs and mail.
I have been busy gathering papers for the TAX Lady. Next week my mom's.
First thing this morning, I made a snowman before the chores got me backed-up.
Will be back on track tomorrow with my exercises.
Best wishes,

Hi Amy, I am also a mother, of 2 but they are a handful!!! I am also looking for someone to share my weightloss journey with who understands the trials and tribulations we go through! My husband is always there for me, yet i feel alone in this since he is thin and always has been i don't really feel he "knows" what it's like! I would love to have an "actual" buddy/friend who i can talk to when down or e-mail/skype with when nobody else seems to get it! I am new to sparkpeole and this is all a bit confusing to navigate through the site. Let me know if you would like to be buds!

Hi Marilyn and Sherry, Did you two buddy up? Is there room for me?

Marilyn I added you as a friend and sent you the following SP mail, Sherry are you still looking for a buddy???

Hi Marilyn,
I am looking for a buddy to be accountable to and with. I read your SP page and would love to be your buddy, please read my SP page and see what you think.

I too enjoy exercising at home, using herbal remedies, and am challenged by late night eating.

I enjoy upbeat people with helpful ideas, maybe we can have challenges to encourage each-other or share ideas to change things up.

Karen

Hello, I have been going on this roller coaster ride for a long time now. I lost the weight and kept it off for about 6 months then gained it back plus some. I've been very depressed and haven't had much motivation, but I'm tired of doing nothing. I'm looking for someone who will be my buddy; someone to work with, motivated each other, encourage each other and build a friendship with.

Hi, this is my first attempt at blogging here. I would love to find someone to connect with and help each other be accountable. It seems like everywhere I turn in my life it is always about food, where are we eating, who is cooking, what are we making. I am trying t take a step back and stop focusing so much on when everyone around me wants to eat, so that I can truly understand when and why I am hungry.

Hi Friends , My name is Geralyn I am 32 years old and i have 150+ pounds to lose . I am also looking for friends for support and advice . I believe that 2012 is my year and that I will be successful in my "Fight for Life" . Failure is not in my vocabulary when it comes to my losing weight this year. I will not let the Old insecure Geralyn talk me in to giving up . I have been hiding behind this big layer of fat for far to long .... I need it GONE forever .
Let's be friends :)

Hi, everyone!!
I seriously need a buddy and would like to be a buddy. I live in Bklyn, NY and I've been a SP member for about two years now. Every day, every hour, is a challenge for me. I want to lose 100lbs and would like support from others who are on this journey as well (better health, physically and emotionally).

Hello Everyone!!
My name is June and I'm 37. I have 3 children and live in Ohio. I have been struggling with my weight most of my adult life. I have been my heaviest now for about 6 years, since the birth of my 3rd child. I know what I have to do to lose weight, but sometimes I lack motivation. I also have a huge sweet tooth I need to tame. I ned to lose weight this time. I want to be healthier for myself and my family. I hold myself back from the things I want to do because I am too self conscience of the way I look. I am tired of living this way. If anyone would like to add me as a friend, please feel free. We are all in this together!!! emoticon emoticon

Hi Everyone :)
I'm Lilly, 42 years old, single and live in South Dakota. I'm hoping to find friends and buddies on Spark. I pretty much don't have a lot of support from my family. Or I should say their idea of support is, "You have such a pretty face. If only you'd lose some weight." or "You're not even trying, are you? You know it and I know it." And the list is endless of their undying support for me. lol
The truth is I'm on a vicious cycle of trying, failing, give up.
I want to become healthier and live a healthier lifestyle and all the things that come with it. My doctor's nurse recommended me to Spark. So here I am. :)
And this time, I am not saying a word to my family about anything. This is just between me, you and God. :)

Hi all, I'm 24, dislike the taste of water but I'm learning to like it, and I am searching for an email buddy to help each other on this journey.

I have times where I really want the weight off but then i have times where i'm so frustrated the scale won't budge I just give up and eat a whole family size bag of Twix. This is the closes I've been to trying to change the way I live.

Hi Amy,
I'm Deborah, and I would love to be your buddy and do all those things that you mentioned. We're about the same weight and I would like to lose about that much too. I know I'm older than you so you may not want someone in my age range; I'm 57. My husband and I are counselors and we have our own practice in a small NW Louisiana town named Natchitoches (it's where they filmed Steel Magnolias). We have no children (not planned, but unfortunately that's what's happened), yet are fortunate enough to have wonderful friends that let us "share" their children.

I have been in that "hole" for a very long time, too. When my husband left to go work away in June for the past three months for the military, I decided I would get serious. And I have! It's amazing! I started eating better, exercising regularly, and I'm down 21 pounds now. If I don't go to Curves and exercise now, I feel guilty. Very strange! :-) Hubby comes home on Sunday, and I can't wait for him to see me 21 pounds lighter. He will be SO pleased. But now nearly as pleased as I am.

If you are interested in being a buddy with me, texting/emailing, etc., just let me know!

Love, Deb

Hi my name is Amy. I have been over weight most of my life and am very familiar with the roller coaster that is weight loss. I have tried almost every crazy diet out there all with initial success followed by huge failure. I have about 100 pounds to lose. I have "started" too many times to count only to give up again and again. I am a nurse and a mother of 3 which translates to taking care of everyone else in the world except me. I am desperately wanting to get out of this hole that I find myself in and am hoping to find someone that can be my friend and support and who wants the same in return. I would love to find someone that wants to text/email, share ideas, recipes, and motivation.
