Is SP having trouble with their site? I came here today to huddle and it said only team members can huddle. I thought well...I AM a team member so I go to the home page and had to rejoin. Then I go back to huddle and it still wouldn't let me. emoticon I haven't been getting email notices for a long time and recently every time I click on a link, it shows some pop up ad. Going to go check my home page now and see what else is messed up.

Hope everyone had a GREAT Christmas!!!

Hugs, Sue

I must be taking the scenic route out of this town because I'm 262 this morning. Down one little pound from last week. My body just needs to let it go! LOL! I'm thankful to be headed in the right direction though. Jen, you will be two towns ahead of me at this rate. lol! I'm trying!

Great to hear from you Pam! We love when you stop by!! We will all be in 250ville soon. I am hanging on in that town all by myself. I am back up to 259.2. Winter weight! I love lots of bread in the winter!

How was your son's concert? I loved going to the concerts, but neither of them do anything at the school concerts now that they are in high school! Sara sang for the first couple of years, but not anymore. She just cannot wait to get out of school now. She graduates in June.

Wow! Less than a week until Christmas! I am so not ready!

Walking all over town sounds fun even in the cold, snowy weather! That being said, I've been sitting out the snow here today just gotta run and get dressed and outside! Got an appointment at my son's school to set-up the poinsettias for tonight's Holiday Concert I'm assuming it is going to go on regardless of our little snow storm. They didn't cancel school or go for an early closing so we are all set!

Yes, Jen, I also get nervous about change and want to eat. Trying to really work on that this time! But I'm more excited than nervous this time and this is a LONG TERM change as I have to get some credentials first so I can apply for the job. I'll probably be taking some classes this spring and then applying at the end of the semester. Went on some informational interviews and everyone was so encouraging! The job isn't available till Fall, 2014 (teaching position). These things open early and take forever to get filled. I'm hopeful!

Weighed myself again Monday still up from my lowest here (1.5 lbs gotta kick it!) But happy to be 'back on track' over all. 250ville here I come!

See you next week ladies! Enjoy decorating for Christmas wherever you do it!

We shall have a festive celebration!!

I have just been shoveling and shall have to go out and shovel some more. It is not too heavy, but my arms and shoulders will be sore tomorrow. I am trying to get a bunch onto the street because the town comes and removes the snow that has been plowed to the side of the road. Thus, though my car has been shovelled out, I still cannot get out of my driveway until they do snow removal. Probably tonight. They usually do it at night when the parking ban is in effect. That is ok. I really can walk anywhere that I need to go. The bank, PO, hospital, doctor's office, work, market, drug store, library, restaurants, school... all within walking distance. I really should choose walking as my mode of transportation. That would benefit me in so many ways. I would save money, I would get healthier and fitter, and I would be helping the environment.

Peace and Many Blessings!

This one! This is the 260ville Club House! At least until the end of the year. Then maybe we will call it the Community Center. What do you think? I don't think I will put a year on it though. That way it can just be a never ending thread!

Peace and Many Blessings!

HAHA Pam! That is the one journal that I don't have, but probably should!

Sue~ Would we have different threads for each journal? I am thinking now.

Pam~ Good luck with the new job!

Are you guys all ready for Christmas?

Pam! It's great to hear from you. emoticon Oh wow! Best wishes on your new job!!! Career change too?! That must be exciting!!!

It's difficult for me to eat healthy when life gets busy or if I get nervous about things, I just want to eat and not the good foods either.

I thought I heard you chuckle about all those journals. emoticon I completely understand what you mean about food tracking. That isn't one of my favorite things to journal but I found it helpful to be able to look back at the successful weeks and compare that part with against the weeks when I didn't lose as much. I was in WW for a long time with their old points plan. Loved it.

Congratulations on joining WW!!! You got this Pam! emoticon Wishing you an AWESOME start!

Aw! You DO have a pretty smile. Did you find something you liked?

Thank you on the weight loss. emoticon Looking forward to getting out of the 260's.

Best wishes to you today!!!

Hugs, Sue

Thanks Jen! I'm thrilled to see that weight moving in the right direction too. I'm itching to get to 250-ville. lol! I'm not sure which one I want more...to BE in 250ville or just to get out of these 260's which I feel like I've been in for far too long. Ugh! That of course is by my own doing but still! I'm ready for a good change!

Wooo! A white Christmas sounds so dreamy to me. All the family gathered inside a nice warm home with the sparkling lights twinkling in the snow outside. Ahhhh!

Yeah, I have to agree with you. You were the only one to answer me there. LOL! YES! We need a journal team. LOL! I can just see Pam's sweet little face laughing at us right now. emoticon I forgot my to do journal (log), and my gratitude journal (need to write in that one more often than I do) and I NEED a forgiveness and affirmations one for sure. I struggle with forgiveness but it is the one single thing I put the most effort in and I still feel like it's the one area I struggle most in follow through. Maybe if I journal it out, I will discover why and how to forgive more easily. hmmm... You have me thinking now Jen. lol! See, we need a team so we can discuss things like this! I'll certainly join you there!!!

I'm game if you are! lol!

Hugs, Sue

Hey Ladies! Sorry I've been gone. I'm applying for a new job and its a career change and I'm very excited but very busy too!

Have NOT been doing the right thing food wise though. Reading about all your journals I'm chuckling to myself no wonder you are so good at food tracking! I cannot even seem to do that ONE journal!!!

I also joined weight watchers in the hopes that the online tool they have (and that I have on my smartphone) would make tracking/journaling easier for me. Still not doing it! Going to do it today though I always like to start out fresh in the morning!

Thank you LilySue for the compliment on my smile. I have to find a picture for my new job search and I was frustrated by that - you have encouraged me to look again.

Congrats LilySue on the loss too. You have made significant progress since you returned to SparkPeople feel empowered by that! 250ville is near!

See you tomorrow!

I am so happy to see that your weight is down! I am so looking forward to seeing you posting in the 250-ville team. I haven't posted much on that team yet.

We put a Christmas tree up today and there are lights on it, but no decorations on it yet. Everyone here likes a white Christmas, and those winters when we don't get one are disappointing for everyone. Of course 1" is all that is really required for a nice white Christmas! Perfect because that is an easy amount to shovel!

That journaling team is not a very good one. I joined just before you did because I have worked with that book, and I like the idea of studying it with others, but that team is a bit disorganized and not very friendly. No one responded to the posts that I made. I have been thinking of starting a Spark Team with one of her other books. I think The Prosperous Heart to start with because that is the book that I learned to write morning pages from,

I also have several journals, but am not as consistent as I would like to be. I do enjoy writing the morning pages though. I have a gratitude journal, a spiritual insight journal (probably similar to your dialog with God journal), a to-do journal, a recipe/cooking journal, and a forgiveness and affirmations journal. Hmmm...am I forgetting any?

Perhaps we should start a journaling team?

Peace and Many Blessings!

Good evening Ladies! How is everyone doing? I was so excited this morning to see 262 on the scale. A few more days to weigh in so we'll see how it all works out in the end but it was nice to see that number this morning!

Everyone about finished with all your Christmas planning? I think everyone I talk to has snow. Do you guys dream of a white Christmas or is that just for those of us who have no idea what it's like to live in it? lol!

Pam, I stopped by your page the other day...you have such a warm smile. Miss you not being around here. Hope to see you soon.

Oh Jen, I meant to tell you that I had left that journaling team. I really love the idea of journaling (I'm quite obsessive about it actually. lol!). Do you journal a lot? I have a personal prayer journal, an art journal, a travel journal, a December Daily that I journal the whole month of December...what we do, traditions... I have a sort of diary type journal and I recently started keeping a life lessons journal for my children and theirs if they are so blessed with children. I keep a junk journal that I just put anything and everything in...receipts, movie tickets, little notes about people I meet or comments I over hear...anything that impresses me on a given day. I keep a journal for my sort of dialogue with God and a prayer journal that includes prayers for others (country, city, neighbors, friends, extended family, ...). I don't journal in all of them every day but always ONE of them and usually two for sure each day. I was doing a lot of art journaling but took a break from that until today. Started two new pages that is currently drying. Do you have multiple journals?

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs, Sue

250-ville is a ghost town! I am the only one there, but I have been having fun updating the threads.

You are very, very close! I am sure that you will be there soon! I better get working on the team welcome letter!

I am melting!!! This morning I weighed 255.4! I cannot believe it and I will be curious what tomorrow's weight will be. I joined a daily weigh in team, so now I weigh every day. My goal is to reach 240-ville by the end of the year.

I will stay on as leader here and there was no leader in 250ville so I am leader there too.
Pam should be leaving soon also. She is right on the line.

I'm not planning on being here much longer so I will decline being leader again. Thank you though! I would love it if you stay on with me. You will be my motivation as I cross this finish line too. It's up to you though. Either way, I will see you in 250-ville! SOON!

I thought Pam was already there. Hey Pam! Hope you are still working hard on your goals!!!

I am finally below 260. I will be going to 250ville, but I don't want to leave. I will miss you, even knowing that you will get there too. Sue~ Would you like to be leader again? I can stay on with you if you like because I like being leader. Pam~ You can be leader too if you would like.

Let me know!

I'm finding that I have to check at each team I'm on because I don't get email alerts for everything. lol!

Thank you. It's been a tough year but I'm thankful for all the ones that weren't like this one has been. emoticon

YAY!...11 days is GREAT. Woooo~naughty girl with those girl scout yummies. lol! The nerve of them to make those delicious goodies. emoticon emoticon

I've been eating much healthier foods and exercising too. Will have to see what the weight is this coming week. My doctor is so encouraging and helpful. I'm really trying to use what she gives me wisely. I appreciate her input and helpfulness.

Are you prepared for Thanksgiving?

Have a GREAT week!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I missed this for the last couple of days! Thank you so much for your accolades! I am so happy that you are feeling so much better and I am sorry that you had to go through so much.

I made 11 days sugar free, but then the Boy Scout popcorn order arrived with the Chocolate Caramel Crunch! I just couldn't resist! I have to get back at it because I did feel better and I was eating more fruit.

I didn't hear about the movie, but that is ok. I am so happy just for the experience of going to a casting call. One day I will be in a movie! I also want to be on a tv show in an episode. I haven't seen that Kohl's commercial but I will keep a lookout for it.

So glad that you are back! I will talk with you soon!

Peace and Many Blessings!

Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers Jen. I appreciate you so much. It's been a long year with everything stretched across the 11 months but I'm coming out the other end of it now (I think...and hope) and to think it all started with a virus. LOL! I'm trying hard to get and stay healthy. It's pretty easy to get your head on straight after being sick for so long so that's a plus that came out of this. lol!

WOW! CONGRATULATIONS on being flesh free for two months!!! I'm so proud of you girlie! Oh my gosh!...and no sugar! WHOA! AWESOME! You Go girl!...commanding that body to health. WOOT! I have gotten rid of dairy...that was easy as I'm lactose intolerant and it's just not worth it to me to take a pill or what ever "help" it is to continue trying to have it. Yuck! I've never been a fan of milk or ice cream and I can't stand yogurt so I'm good with that. My son is highly allergic to milk stuff so it's just best for us to avoid having it in the house. He's the same one with high allergy to soy products too. Between three of us in this family, we have a lot of food allergies and we struggle to find something we can all eat the same things of.

Girlie, you are already a star! Did you hear back from them?! How exciting to audition!!! You are so brave! I would be too chicken. lol! I sure hope you will make your mark in the world. It will be great to say...HEY!...there's JEN! while watching a movie. emoticon Have you seen that Kohl's commercial where this lady is singing Forever Young in the background and this young couple rushes into an apartment to decorate for Christmas and just as they are rushing back across the hall, this elderly lady enters into that decorated apartment? Omg! I'm in LOVE with that commercial. LOL! That few second commercial has captivated me like no holiday tv show has done this year. lol! Good luck on that audition. I really hope you get a spot!!!

Oh wow! You really are a star girlie! You have the knack for it too. I would be too nervous to speak. LOL! Congrats on those sold out shows! That's amazing. I'm going to have to go look at your photos on your page now. lol!

Headed back to the dr. today for a six month lab work check up. It will be good to compare the previous lab work and see where I stand. Although, I'm a bit concerned as my weight hasn't changed much and I had hoped to have made a lot more changes in my diet by this time. After I got sick this last time I wasn't able to eat much at all so I got really weak and with the out of control asthma, wasn't exercising either. emoticon Hope the next six months will be a much better time. emoticon

Thanks for the very warm welcome back Jen. I really do appreciate it.

Hugs, Sue

Sue! So, so glad to have you back with us!!!! I am so happy to see you! You have been in my thoughts and prayers, so I just have to let you know how glad I am to see you!! Sorry that you have been so sick! Glad to know that you are getting better.

So... now to get healthy and stay healthy...
That is my goal! I hate to be sick and unhealthy because as soon as you get sick and your immune system is compromised, you are open to a host of ailments, as you were. So, so glad that you are better!

As for me... Today is my 2 month anniversary of being flesh free. This is my ninth day with no "obvious" sugar. It is a challenge that I embarked upon to be sugar free until Thanksgiving, then until my daughter's 18th birthday, and then until Christmas Eve. I already look and feel better. One step at a time! I have cut way back on my dairy, though I do not think I will give up cheese completely.

I auditioned for a movie last weekend, but haven't heard anything. It was a very fun experience! I had never been to a casting call before. I would do it again. It was really fun and someday I will be a STAR!!!

Though I have never been in a movie, I have lots of stage experience. I am a member of the cast of a popular local stage show called Friday Night Live. It is put together like Saturday night live, but it is all local humor and is written and performed by the group. Every show has sold out! WooHoo! There is a picture on my SparkPage from the first show. We are just starting to put together the fourth show. It will be the last weekend in January and the first weekend in February. So excited! It is marvelous to play to a sold out crowd!

Hope we can all start chatting again! We missed you, and are glad that you are back!
Jen xo

Happy November ladies! I'm back. Golly~gosh have I been sick. I'm nearing the final few allergy shots to reach maintenance level and the asthma is better as a result too. Thankfully! The doctor had to give me a lot of steroids to help with the junk I was fighting but those apparently suppress the immune system so I ended up with two different viruses that were going around in between the bronchitis episodes. I've avoided getting out of the house(except allergy shots) since that time to give my body time to mend. Ready to tackle this weight issue again.

How is everyone doing? Update me!

hugs, Sue

Thank you! My hair looks wonderful! I like it! emoticon
Yes, the '80s were really rough!

My meeting went really well and they want me to do their books. It is a big challenge, but I am grateful to have year-round work.

How is everything with you?

Peace and Many Blessings!

Yes! We will journey together and we will get to 250ville! We will! emoticon

Finished up "tax season" last night, but still have a couple of clients that don't have all of their stuff together yet. I am meeting with new clients tonight for year-round bookkeeping. I am a little nervous and hoping that our meet and greet goes well. They have already told me that they think it will work out well. I am grateful for the work!

I am getting my hair cut today. I am looking forward to it, as it is very overdue. I had an appointment at the beginning of September, but my stylist went into labor 7 weeks prematurely. She had a healthy boy, but they were in the hospital for a long time. I have been waiting for her to come back, but she won't be back for a couple more weeks and I need it done so I am having someone else do it. Hopefully it will look good for my meeting tonight!

I hope that you are having a nice day!

Peace and Many Blessings!

Jenny

Hi Pam!

Sue has left us. She sent me a message that she was quitting SparkPeople due to health concerns. I find myself very sad that she will not be with us anymore. She needs our prayers as she seems quite concerned about her lungs.

I hope that you had a good weekend!

Peace and Prayers!
Jen


Peace and Many Blessings!

Hi Jen, LilySue,

Jen it sounds like a nice time out with your friend, enjoy! And I have teenagers too ... and one is insisting on staying home while we go away this weekend. Fortunately we have relatives here where he will have to be by 11pm each night. He drives, so he can get himself there, so I don't feel too bad asking them to 'babysit' ... but its better than having him sulk through the weekend!

LilySue I hope you have some time to do the food prep this weekend to help you get through the super busy days. I do know what you mean there. I'm a morning person, so most days by dinner time I just don't have the energy, or time, to put together a healthy dinner if I didn't think about it in advance ... and have what I need on hand. I like the idea of half prepared stuff even better. I may spend next week end being my own sous chef. Little bowls of prepped veggies, etc. in the fridge sounds so fabulous! When I get that far, maybe I'll share what works.

Have great weekends!

Good evening to both of you!

I am struggling with an estate return! It is really getting me down!

Oh... did I mention that I have teenagers. Talk about stress! AND... they have a four day weekend this weekend! No school tomorrow and Monday is a holiday! Oh well... at least I can get to work super early and they will sleep in.

Tomorrow afternoon I am meeting a friend in our beautiful capital city, Augusta, Maine, for a little shopping and supper at the Sweet Chilli Thai Restaurant. That will be a nice relaxing time.

Peace and Prayers!
~Jen

Peace and Many Blessings!

Jenny
