Gerry - I read that as puppies not poppies and went -whaaat? LOL

Yes, Mary is doing fantastic. I need her inspiration,

I need to start tracking again too. I am going to start back on my recumbent bike again this afternoon. I think the plantar fasciitis has eased enough for that. If that goes well - back to the gym next week. Yippeee If I need to wait another week then I will, but I think I might be ready.

Mary congrats on losing weight on vacation. I've done that too, and it makes you feel like you can conquer anything!

I just went and read a bunch of posts here...how wonderful. Yes, pets are amazing to come home to after a long day and also to keep you company when you are home (I work from a home office).

This weekend we drove up to where the poppies were supposed to be in full bloom, but because of cold and windy weather, they weren't happening! But the drive was nice, and we did find a smaller patch of them while driving around. Will go up there again in 2 weeks!

Today is a big day for me. I'm starting tracking again, and I will walk. A lot.

Hello everyone and have a wonderful week!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Congratulations Mary :) That is fantastic! I hope you did something really nice for yourself! How was the vacation?

I am happy the sun is shining but it is cool, perfect spring weather that Jabulani and I can get out in the yard. We are re seeding the grass because there isn't much to the lawn any more. Hopefully it works and Jabulani will have a nice play area again :)

Hugs and Smiles for everyone!

Hello my dear friends! Haven't seen y'all for a very long time. I'm doing well. Foot is all better, belly all better...no more mini strokes. Working two jobs and still going through a long drawn out divorce. Can't wait til that's over! Dogs are all good. JD is no longer with us. Honestly he was incorrigible and unhappy here. He's finally with someone and has accepted her as his and is happy. I did although bring in a new addition and he's not a poodle (gasp!). I didn't think there was a smarter breed out there but I have the sharpest little miniature schnauzer and he is a great little addition to my brood. Was doggie door trained from day one and bright! Wow what a little cutie. He's getting along well with Raider, Buffy and Snickers and they're all having a blast. His name is Baylee and he's a little rebel rouser! lol Will try to get a pic soon. He's chocolate brown and gorgeous! More to follow in the weeks and months ahead. I'm on my way to DFW metroplex to celebrate my 51st birthday with my daughter Randi and my son-in-law Brian. Love y'all!

Dogs are amazing! I used to be really uptight and stressed all the time until I adopted my two dogs. Now when I come home, I come home to tail wagging and jumping and it just makes the work day disappear!

Hi, I've just joined, and I wanted to add that the comment abiyt the dog being a joy in ones life couldn't be any closer to how I feel about my Louis and Netty. They are the love and sunshine in my life which keeps me going/smiling - their personality's, and their humour never gives me any time to reflect upon anything sad - and if I have done- they have been beside me quite and loyal.. just sitting with me...dogs .... poodles/standards are really like people with beautiful furry coats...they are one of the biggest joys in my life....that's for sure....Victoria

after the doc put me on a new diabetic pill, I gained back ALL I had lost as a side effect of that pill! dang!

BUT I stopped taking it and have finally lost 2 pounds!!! whew at my menopausal age, to reverse a gaining trend is as hard as trying to stop a motor cycle with out putting on the brakes, just using you feet! FINALLY you get it to stop, but then you have to work even harder to REVERSE things!

so, I'm crowing on my two pound VICTORY!!!!!

Proud Mary!!

Oh I agree!!!! April is a joy to come home to. Wagging and wiggling and licking, putting her little paws in the air and twirling she is so happy. It always always brings a smile to my face!!!

That certainly is worth celebrating. What a fortunate pup to have you and a fortunate you to have him! Isn't it just wonderful how they greet us when we have been away. There is no money in the world that can buy that feeling.

I have not read this thread, but since it says "all positive, all the time" I want to add....

I just LOVE my Kurz, my big, loving, adorable, sweet, 80 pound standard poodle! He is the kindest, most sensitive doggy I have every owned. He wants to make me happy every single minute and is so encouraging to me when he prances up and just wiggles all over with the joy of having me return home.

I am so thankful to God that I decided to look for this type of Dog. I am amazed every day at how great he is! emoticon

Thanks Dee

I am proud of me too! WOO HOO

No, my son lives in the DC area; I am in PA.

I have an appointment with a local women's gym tomorrow (at least men won't have to see me in my suit - LOL). Their pool has bromine treatment and a top of the line ventilation system so I shouldn't have to worry about my asthma. Anyway, I'll go check it out and then maybe join.

The way my schedule looks though it will be next week before I can go in really. I may make an personal trainer consult visit for next week to get a plan worked up. I think maybe Tuesday.

The next two weeks are booked pretty heavy (that is good news - my practice is growing) so going forward, I will block time for the workouts. For now, I'll just squeeze them in where I can.

I, unfortunately, will be missing a total of 3 wks classes. I missed last week because I was in FL; this week because my car was being worked on and two of my kids (son and DIL) were here, and next wk (actually tomorrow thru next Tues) I'll be in DC. Isn't that near you????? Don't you live in the MD area????

At any rate, I'm proud of you!!!

Hugs,

OK I ordered two swim suits so that I can get into a water aerobics class. They are 16W! they came yesterday and I can actually wear them. I am shocked and pleased b/c when I bought one last year thinking I might do water aerobics, it was a 20W and really tight so I returned it.

I got two tops and two bottoms. I like the little skirt bottom best. Both tops are nice. The other bottom might look a little better later. :-)

I can't say swimsuit is a flattering look for me since I still have a good sized belly but at least I KNOW how far I have come. Now I just need to screw up the courage to wear it in public! LOL

Ok next step - call the club that my insurance takes to see if I can get in.

Yes it did work, and you can view it on the Blue Buffalo site. Just go to the part where they let you view cards and then where it says Breed type in Poodle. You can look at them all or also type in your city and state and April will come up.

How sweet is that? I was delightfully surprised. I recognized her right away before even seeing her name and info.

Ok so yesterday afternoon I stopped at the grocery store to pick up salad greens. Well didn't this fattening 1/2 of a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing jump right into my hands! EEK Then two small pieces of it ended up in my tummy before the end of the night.

So.... what is the celebration besides that it tasted so amazing?......

I sent the rest of it to work with hubby to share with his crew today! Yeah for me - it is outta the house!

Ok now where did I put those salad greens?????.....

Ohhhh Chloe! You are so-o-o-o very funny!!!! It was sunny and 60 degrees here today, and the birds were chirping. I'm hoping that we've seen the last of the snow for this year.

Hey my mommy says she knows what "Victorias Secret" really is....Its those jell things that go in the bra thing mommy wears so it looks like she really has more than she does. Then she said when she takes it off her boobies say..."Help!...I've fallen and I can't get up"

I am so glad us Poodle and Doodle girls don't have to worry about that. Can you imagine how many of those things we'd have to wear!

We had snow Monday and now its gonna be 60 degrees this weekend. I can't wait to zoom and zoom and chase some birds. What fun. I LOVE to make them fly then watch them in the sky.

Well I hope all my friends are okey dokey. Mommy is ready for bed. So have a good nights sleep!

You go girl!!!! that is marvelous! I, too, have all or most of my weight in my waist.

But.....drum roll please.....I lost two lbs!!!!

I haven't measured since I did the first measure. I will save that for the week that I don't lose any weight!

We are doing great Sue!

OMG - another few inches this time! Pounds stayed the same. The girls have lost weight - lol - they and my hips are the movers. And the waist is down another 1/2 inch. So the exercising is changing things! WOOHOO

I still have a long way to go on the waist since that is where I carry all my weight. Ideally I should have a 32 inch waist since they say 1/2 your body height. I am at 41 right now so lots of work to do yet. But I have come a looong way baby! emoticon

Thanks! I am pleased. It is good to see progress just for the motivation factor. But I also know it means my body is getting healthier.

You should have heard me squeal when I walked up the hall after a shower when I forgot to take my clothes with me.(A full length mirror is at the end. I was like "OMG when did the happen?" LOL

It is kinda the reverse of when I realized I was fat. I looked in that same mirror and said "OMG when did THAT happen?" I was totally unaware of just how big I had gotten.

This time it was a squeal of delight, not a screech of horror! LOL What a great moment!

UH OH Maggie is pushing me off the computer - she has something exciting to tell her fellow and lady poodles.

Congrats Sue! You are too funny! Feel free to share all progress no matter! Actually my husband calls his the DickieDo. You get the idea. We all have been there done that. Actually when I work chest at the gym I tell them I'm trying to find mine! Haha! So sad.

Very proud of you! emoticon

Wow! that is marvelous Sue! Of course it's three inches higher, it's tightening up from muscles building up in your tummy! Whoooo Hooooo Sue!!!

Just think, by the time Spring comes, you will be through with PT probably and be able to start your garden again and Poodle walk and all kinds of things.

I am so happy for you beautiful sue!

WOOHOO I just measured my waist, hips, thighs, bust, calves, and upper arm - I have lost 5.5 inches since the last time I measured in early November!

Actually to be honest, at Christmas time the belly went up a good bit so that has come off too. I think one day in early January it was up almost 2 inches over the beginning of November (either that or I measured wrong in Nov) - eek. But all is down now.

The really interesting thing and I have no idea how to measure it but that my belly is coming 'up'. I am one of those where there is a large fold of fat. It used to reach to my crotch. UGLY. But now it is up higher by 3 inches! Maybe that is TMI but I am excited by it! LOL

Not dropping weight but I have been building up the thigh muscles (and others) working on the knee rehab. If figure that is why the scale isn't moving. That and I really need to find away to shave off another 100 calories a day. If I stay to the lower side of the calorie range I drop weight a little easier but I find that my PT and bike work makes me really hungry.

Anyway - the measurements are encouraging. I have a long way to go to get to my healthy waist size since that is where all my weight is. But I can do it one inch at a time.

O.k folks...Keep your fingers crossed. They asked me at the gym if I was still interested in teaching Power Flex Classes and Personal Training. Lord yes I said. Hopefully I'll find out in a week or two.
Yes I will have to brace knee up real good but I so need the job!

Ok - I am on a roll - got into jeans I have not been able to close in 18 months. WHOO HOO Another 2 pounds down. I guess all the stretching is burning calories after all. I also have to wonder if some isn't water weight as the swelling in my knee subsides. Either way, I am happy. :-)

Come on folks - everyone has something to celebrate! No matter how small - the little things add up. I really want to hear how you all are doing.

What is your WHOO HOO today?

Wow! Imagine my surprise when I got on the scale and found another 1.2 pounds off! 195 even this morning! WHOO HOO!

And that with the restricted movement I have been able to do in the past 2 weeks. I did decrease my calories by 100 per day.

And I have been eating a homemade chili like soup. I say chili-like b/c it is brothy. I loaded it with onions, green & red peppers, tomatoes, carrots, fresh garlic, garbanzo beans, kidney beans and lean beef cubes. Then herbs and spices. I have to believe it is my power tool this past week. Very filling and low calorie. Yum

Yeah me!

Another one bites the dust! WHOO HOO It was a little longer coming but at least I didn't really gain over the holidays so now we are on a downward trend again. {doing the Snoopy happy dance}

Especially since I can't do any aerobics or most of my Wii now - again. After our trip to Phila and all that walking in the cold, my knee went out again. The good news is that it feels better now but no aerobics for at least 4 weeks. :-) The good news is I can still use my balance ball and hand weights.

Gonna work on my new 'vision board' today. Actually need to run out and buy the board. :-)

singing: And another one gone, another one gone, another one bites the dust! hehehehehe

Mary - I was a little bit incorrect. The Spark book wheel is a one time only spin. After that you are back to the original spinner. I got 20 points AGAIN today. Whoo Hoo

Whoo Hooo! Just got back from the doctor. Dropped almost 14 pounds since I was there 3 months ago. My fasting blood sugar was still somewhat high at 121 BUT my glyco-hemoglobin dropped from a dangerous 7.0 to 6.5! That means my strategy for blood sugar control without medication is working! YIPPPPEEEEEE I am so encouraged by this. So is the doctor - he said to keep up the good work!

I don't take chol meds either. For the first time in years my good cholesterol is over 30 (32 this time). My all time low was 19. EEK For women, it should ideally be up around 50 although 35 is 'passable' as long as total cholesterol is good. Below 30 is not at all healthy for the arteries.

My total cholesterol dropped 30 points to 151. It was good before but improved even more. My LDL (lousy cholesterol)dropped 20 to 118. So both of those are great figures.

My triglycerides dropped 57 - down to 151! My lowest in 6 years by the chart I keep on it. WHOO HOO 130 is the target.

I can't tell you how affirming this is. All the tracking, changing lifestyle, adding exercise and simply not eating so blasted much is WORKING! Plus all the wonderful encouragement all of you here have given me. I have to tell you that I feel better too.

This will give much needed tangible proof that I am making a difference in my overall health and well-being. I will be making some kind of graphic for the frig so that I can SEE my progress every time I go to eat something. I may even be able to keep my mouth off those cookies. hehehehehe

Plus hubby, who didn't get quite as good a report saw how it helped my health. His blood sugar did come in a little better than 3 months ago but his triglycerides shot way up again. he is on cholesterol meds. And Doc said without the meds his number would be even worse than they are. So maybe he'll work a little harder too.

Poodle Team Rocks! Thanks for the help everybody! What an awesome Christmas present.

Christmas Blessings

Good job!

Didn't drop any this week but didn't gain any either. I'll take that. I have eaten more white potatoes in the past 5 days than I have in 6 months! hehehehe

Every morsel was appreciated and enjoyed thoroughly too. :-)

Well, my strategy of eating out for Thanksgiving worked this year! I actually lost a whole pound last week! Both my DH and I are trying to get healthy so we decided this year we would take my mom out to eat. We also decided that we would not take home any leftovers. And, I did not bake pies. It must have worked. Both of us lost weight! It was still a wonderful Thanksgiving. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal (and we did eat a lot!) but when the meal was done, so were we! Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

197.2 WHOO HOO!

(Hey, I'm a poet and don't know it! LOL)

Ok I can get through the next few days cooking more healthfully, be mindful of 'tasting' and snacking, and enjoying my food in moderation. Next week shooting for 196.

Happy Turkey Day everyone.

Bright Blessings

Weigh to go! emoticon Well done Mary.

Down to 199 - Yippee. Sitting in classes for 2 days kept me from walking those days but I am thrilled to be under 200!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! You are so right Sue!

Well, (drumroll please brrrrrrrrrr) I have dropped 4 lbs!!!! I am so tickled. I think a lot of it is because there were so many boxes in my kitchen I couldn't get to my stove! no really, I have been exercising and watching what I eat. It has paid off big time.

I think I'm getting a big head. Yesterday I was talking to a friend in the parking lot & she asked if I was eating right & taking care of my self, because, she said, your pants are so droopy. emoticon

Deb, Good for you! I have a really hard time controlling myself when it comes to pizza. It's my favorite food! Having the big salad first is a brilliant idea! Thanks for posting the link.

Finlay, I can say something that's not guess work. I had lunch @ Pizza Hut. First I had a big salad from the buffet.Then I ordered a pizza the way I like it, the thinest crust possible ,a little cheese as possible, veggie pizza. Then I only had 2 slices (OK, so I should have stopped @ 1). I usually would have had 3 or 4 slices. emoticon

I just happened to stumble accross an eating out guide on SP www.sparkpeople.com/resource/sparkdi

Sue that is wonderful! You will be saying bye bye to the 200's and that is going to feel soooo great! Stay positive!

When I feel a calorie overdose sesstion coming on, I get up and get busy! I will exercise, or clean or walk April, do a craft, whatever it takes to stop thinking about pigging out. I know I'm not hungry, but the habit of it is hard to break! So I just don't allow myself to think about it. and in a few minutes, I'm really not thinking about it! that's the way I quit smoking too. If you sit there and allow the thoughts, before long, they become actions.

Congrats!
