There's no snow here now to make snow angels or to color. It has all melted with the warm weather. It may snow again soon. But it's not supposed to be much. emoticon Thinking spring...

Hopefully that bad s--w word won't appear until NEXT winter...no such luck! All should melt between the next couple days, then back to that s word for Friday...NOOOOOO....God really really really..is going to make us greatful for spring. I keep telling him I am!!! I don't mind seeing brown grass or even mud...just am really tired of the white. I'm tempted to spray some food coloring on it just to make it interesting! emoticon

I can't believe it's -4 this morning! And then it's going to be high 40's this weekend and going into the 50's next week - AMAZING!

Sunday looks incredible here with the temps at 42 and sunny. May have to take the puppy (he's 55 pounds and 9.5 months old) on a nice looooonnnnngggg walk :)

We've had snow, ice and then snow. We had some melting in between, but that just made it worse when the water turned to ice. Finally, in one more day, we're coming into a warm spell, as in several days. That will melt the snow and ice. Yea! emoticon

Finally got the driveway plowed at noon-I called Tuesday night at 6 PM before it even snowed 1 flake and he never came and I called him last night too. Neighbor had his plowed and I got him to come over here too. Spent $90 this month and we can't afford it. Take care and stay warm all.

I had been sooooo hoping for LOTS of snow - Instead we got ICE! Blech! It's almost stopped now but having to shovel 1/2 to and inch of ice on top of snow on top of glaciated ice from me not shoveling ealier and packing down the snow - well, that makes for hard work.

I am working from home today and dd is off and my brother stopped over and my mom lives with me so it's a full house today!

Right close to 75/70. Snow has stopped. We probably got around 5 inches or more. Scheduled to work 3rd shift but thinking of calling off.

The snow added 20 minutes to my commute here in NW Ohio. I could not see any lines on the highway and thought I was going to get stuck on the city streets in Lima. Glad to have made it safely, though.

I'm just north of cincinnati and it has been snowing constantly since I got up at 8:00! The big fluffy flakes have turned to much smaller ones, but they're still coming. I am very fortunate to be able to stay home today. I'll probably have to convince my kids that's a good idea though! Especially my oldest, he is 17 today and was talking about hanging with friends today.

Good WHITE morning to all. We ended up with 4.5" over night and it's still snowing, so those of you south of me, I really feel for you. Especially those that had to drive in this. There is accidents all over here, and we didn't get any ice! It's suppose to stop by noon or 1pm. Then the fun begins---AGAIN! Sooo funny seeing my goofy cat try to catch the snow flakes coming down the patio doors. He'd have apoplexy if he were to go out in it. He's not been out in the weather since he was a baby, before he adopted us!

Good morning fellow Ohioans! Looks like we're going to have more of that white stuff again...owww...my body is rebelling already and we don't even have it yet! Bless you that are below Toledo. Your going to have more than us up here. Even muddy ground sounds good right now to look at! I would like to have had this ice melt first. It is a good 6" thick on the roofs.I know that shoveling is good exercise, but I try to tell my body that, and it's not listenin! Hope everyone has a safe day. Does anyone remember when they use to make snow ice cream? That's what I think of when I see the fresh snow. I always made it for my children too....blessings to all...Jean

The weather forcast yesterday said "No Significant Accumulation" - well were they wrong! I think we got 1-2 inches around here and I had to drive in the mess while it was coming down. Visibility was pretty bad. Then this morning there were accidents all over the place. Guess the city doesn't plow and salt side streets if it's less than 4 inches of snow!

Supposed to get anywhere from 3 - 5 inches today/tonight! And somewhere in the winter weather watch there is the mention of ice - I don't like the ice!

Man - I wish they'd just pile on the snow and cancel school so that I can't come into work! LOL. Tomorrow would be a great day for it too since I have just 1 meeting from 1-3 that I could dial into. I can take the rest as PTO :)

Stay warm everyone! We're not out of it yet!

Kris---your absolutely right...I had made it down, last year, to 120 lb which for me is really too low. I looked sick! But stress after my husbands open heart and complications, was hard for me to handle. I wouldn't leave him other than late at night to sleep, and sleep wouldn't come until I actually ate a half gallon ice cream, then at the hospital I would just snack on a candy bar or such because I wouldn't leave his side. Consequently, I gained weight again. Now I know what to do, and believe me I am doing it. I don't want below 125 lb, but know I can do it with my fantastic support at sparks. Thanks for being such an inspiration...Jean

Have you read the Sparkeople articles on Plateau Busting? They are in 3 parts and I found them very helpful. Let me know if you can't find it and I'll see if I can dig them up for you.

Thanks for the encouragement. I've been at a plateau for weeks now. I can't seem to lose at all recently. The only good thing is, I'm not gaining either. I would like to bust through the plateau and start loosing again. The doctor wants me to lose another 30 pounds!

If the body is rebelling take a break... that's what I always do. :)

One of the things that I try to do is eat within my range to lose weight all week and then one day I eat a little higher, more in a maintenance range. This way my body thinks it's not going to starve, the metabolism doesn't slow down, and I get a little break from "dieting." Last night I split some carrot cake with the boyfriend :)

Another thing that I learned the first time that I lost weight is that I would lose, lose, lose for 2 weeks (2 pounds a week) then for 2 weeks nothing or almost nothing, like .5 pound a week....So I would start to freak out when those 2 weeks rolled around and I would question everything I was doing and fretting about what was going on. When I realized the pattern I was able to relax and just keep working my SP plan.

Lastly - I actually got down to about 2 or 3 pounds within my goal weight and I kept working the SP plan and nothing was happening! I changed things up, nothing! I figured my body was done and that perhaps my goal weight was too low for where my body should be so I decided to just go into maintenance. I did that for several months and then suddenly I started to lose weight again! I actually, at one point, got BELOW my goal weight!

That was all 2 years ago - and now I'm back but better armed :) I know that if I work the SP plan I will be successful!

So, take a break if you need one, relax, and just keep doing what you're doing, in the end it will happen for you too!

It as -11 when I got up this morning and headed to the gym to teach. Got there at 7:10 am!

It certainly has warmed up and it's currently 26 degrees. Watch out! It's a heat wave!

I felt so sorry for the Mailman, out in that yesterday. My husband was a letter carrier, and I remember how he would come home red from the cold. Praise God he's retired!---CURTEOUS--- I really feel for you and the artheritis with the cold.Does anything help? I remember giving shots to my neighbor for her arthritis. While sitting here, a squirrel stood on the bricks of the window, and put some holes inthe screen banging on the window for me to feed it. (dang thing) I do feel sorry for them with so much snow they could never find food if they wanted. Then the little snot climbed my patio screen...Think I'm ready to go squirrel huntind..keep warm all...Jean

I sure hope it will be warmer! I have arthritis and the cold is murder on my joints! Help! Bring some warmth! How are any of you doing with your outside exercise? I sure wouldn't do it in this artic air! Maybe the snow will let up so you won't have to shovel out in this air and then the air will warm up into the balmy 20's. God bless!
