Sandi,
You are building on one of the cornerstones of success. Your focus on movement is one of the things which will contribute to your health in so many ways. Your creativity, in finding ways to move
when in a work enviornment is inspiring. There are many things you can do. Just keep on moving as you are Hydration is also key.
Great job!

Teresa

Nancy,
It is always good to look forward to something. The return of our loved ones is always a special anticipation..
We may get more rain tonight, but it certainly beats those tornados. We had one come through here before it headed for Sedalia. I have a special friend living there, so naturally, that raised some concerns. He was right in the middle of it, in his car, but fortunately he and all of his family were untouched.
I am glad your groin muscle is healing. It is wise of you not to push it. 6.5 miles running seems to be quite a distance. emoticon
We often don't think about it, and neglect our feet terribly. I don't particularly care to wear shoes in the house, but I have tried to make it a practice.
I am glad your bunions are not too bad at this time. I have known people who have suffered greatly.
Have a good weekend and enjoy the time with hubby! emoticon

Teresa

Mimi,
If my recollection is correct you had the formula in mind for the old points plan. It is late, but I am determined to at least put this dish together. I found it and it is a three point dish. It is courtesey
of Weight Watcher's and is called Mama mia vegetable pie. I will post it tomorrow so you can see what it is.
I appreciate your help.
Have a good night!

Teresa

Nancy,
I greatly appreciate the link. It will help in many ways. I have attempted to complete this recipe for two days. It is so simple, but something keeps interfering in my day. I plan to put it together tonight when I get home. emoticon

If my memory serves me well, on the "older" point system, calories, fat and fiber determined the points.

1 point could be between 25 calories and as high as 115 calories. It all depended on the fiber, fat and caloires.
Members say that the average was 50 calories per point, but I don't think there is any average.

I am running extremely behind today. I am just now catching my breath. I would like to pose a question to some of the members who have belonged to WW for awhile. On the initial points plan how many calories are equivilant to 1 point? Any other nutrients appreciated such as carbs, fiber, protein etc. I have buried my old information.
Thank you very much. emoticon

OP today. I'm eating healthy meals and snacks and since it's going to rain all day (what else?) working on some housecleaning. Hubby comes home today!

Doing the elliptical this morning for my exercise. I did get in a 6.5 mile run before my WW meeting yesterday. No problem at all with my groin muscle - yay! But I'm not going to push it by doing the treadmill today.

I got some sweat glands removed from the bottom of my feet on Monday. So glad to have them done, but if I don't wear shoes all the time, I'm finding that my feet are burning right now. So I'm having to wear my shoes in the house.

Persistence! Not Perfection!

Good morning everyone!

Welcome to our team's Chat Cafe.
We invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy chatting with us.
We are passionate about health and about living a healthy lifestyle!
The Outcome? We are losing the weight and keeping it off for a lifetime - ONE DAY AT A TIME!

ON PLAN/MOVE JUST FOR TODAY!

Please join our "one day at a time" mini challenge anytime, while following your own plan.

ONE DAY AT A TIME!
WE CAN DO IT!

Let's celebrate being "ON PLAN/MOVE" just for TODAY!

For accountability, please post your daily/weekly exercise/moving activities.





Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift.
That's why it is called the "present".



Not on plan just for today?
Tomorrow is a new fresh day.
Congratulations on starting over.
Forget, forgive and move on!

Evaluate what caused you to slip, the situation, and where it might have occurred.
See that you can learn from your slip.

REMEMBER!!!
Slips should teach you, not defeat you!


Accept that sometimes itís going to suck. Despite your best intentions, there will be days when you fall into a bag of crisps. But long-term success is about persistence, not perfection. Itís picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.
START OVER!


START OVER

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal
And you've really tried with your heart and your soul,
but somehow things got out of control---
START OVER.

When you've tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,
But once again, you didn't do good---
START OVER.

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray---
START OVER.

When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through---
START OVER.

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong---
START OVER.

When you've told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it's up to you---
START OVER.

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit
That's not the time for you to quit---
START OVER.

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you---
START OVER.

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there---
START OVER

Whatever the goal we're pursuing,
no matter how rugged the climb,
we're certain to get there
by trying our best,
and taking One Day At A Time.

"Forever" is hard to imagine,
"the future" may seem far away-
but every new dawn
brings a wonderful chance
to do what we can on that day.

*******************************

I saw the "NECKLACE (CHAIN) GAME" somewhere and I liked it.

I thought you might like it too.

You can make your own beautiful necklace (or a chain) by being OP (On Plan), using the emoticons provided here on SP.

*** You can also play this game for one week at a time (or month...etc...) and build a new necklace every week if you wish (or a month...etc...)

*** Please feel free to make adjustments and changes to the "NECLACE GAME" as you wish.

Congratulations on being On Plan, and if not, congratulations on starting over!

NOTE!
Please read Rule # 3 below. It's an excellent motivating rule to stick to your Necklace game, which means: sticking with your weight-loss journey.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GAME

1. For every day you are ON PLAN (OP) you put in your necklace (chain ) the letter D ( for a DAY). So, if you are OP for 4 days in a row, your necklace looks like that: D - D - D - D

It's nicer to use the "EMOTICONS"

2. Once you are OP for 7 days, you change it to W ( For a week) .
Example: If I'm OP for 19 days, my necklace ( or chain) looks like that: W - W - D - D - D - D - D



If you prefer to wear a longer necklace, you can WEAR it this way too:( instead of a W for a week, put 7 "D"'S, like this: D - D - D - D - D - D - D-



3. If you are FULL MONTH OP, It becomes M ( For a MONTH). So, if you are OP 49 days in a row, ( on a 31 days a month),your necklace will look like that: M - W - W - D - D - D - D



RULES OF THE GAME .

1. It's a challenge for yourself , NOT A COMPETITION WITH OTHERS.

2. The first day you BREAK the necklace (chain), you start playing the game all over again , (only if you have used already all of your extra 3500 calories for the month : See Rule # 3), and build your necklace ( chain ) once more from the beginning.

3. RULE # 3 IS VERY IMPORTANT .
PLEASE READ IT !
IT IS A GOOD RULE TO HELP YOU STICK TO THE NECKLACE- GAME .
In order to learn NOT to be perfect, and in order To BE realistic,( we will always have days we are not OP) , YOU MAY HAVE ( if you choose to) UP TO 3500 EXTRA CALORIES each MONTH IN ADDITION TO YOUR regular diet.
You can still CONTINUE to built your necklace(chain)!

The idea here is that the extra 3500 calories amount only to 1 pound gain in one month period, while an average of 2-4 pounds loss per month is VERY reasonable with being OP.
You will still be AHEAD OF THE GAME at the end of each month if you need to add up to extra 3500 calories in a month, providing you are otherwise OP.

The second idea is that once you've built a large chain,( many days OP), you want to keep going building the chain,( rather than break it and start all the way from the beginning again), and rule # 3 allows you to do that , WHILE YOU CONTINUE TO LOSE WEIGHT.
4. Keep your own records.
THAT INCLUDES ALSO KEEPING RECORDS OF THE OPTION TO USE UP TO 3500 calories EACH MONTH. ( when we go off plan).
5. Post your NECKLACE (chain) every day.

I hope you enjoy the game.



Teresa
