Good to see you back Nancy!! Looking good!!

New Year traditions - we usually invited about 30 people over and cooked up a seafood feast for everyone, but over here our closest friends have gone home for the season, so we are cooking up a seafood feast just for ourselves this year - all healthy foods!! We usually do the banging of pots too!!! Decorations usually come down on New Year's Day, but this year I have everything already put away - it's part of the "out with the old" and getting a fresh start on the new year which we have started early!! New Year's Day is always a thorough cleaning and fresh air day!!

Day #4

I am SO happy to see you Nancy, and to hear that you are doing well. Take care and rest. Hugs!!

I did three hours of cleaning today and got a lot of un-decorating done. Didn't even take a break. Still have the tree and outside lights up but will do that tomorrow or Saturday.

I'm with you Sue, the new year is going to be great for all of us. Hugs!!

Day #3

Three days of being in control~~I love it!!

I also love the thread name "One day at a time." I am back to posting each successful day so that would be another encouragement for me.

So glad I didn't wait until Jan 1 to start. I feel so much better too!!

Good morning all!! I'm up early and ready for another great day !! One day of on track living and feeling better already! I wouldn't say I feel energetic yet, but the desire is there to get moving again!! I read Dakotasmom's blog and it is inspiring me to get serious about the next two months and really make it count - starting now!! Have a good one!!

LOL, I am in a team called Progress not perfection so maybe not that one.
I like One Day at a time so watch out on New Year's Day and then we can close this thread down
Going to have a nap if I can as was coughing most of the night and didn't sleep. Need to be quiet tonight as DH has to be up tomorrow at 4.30 so he needs his sleep

No, too late, the goodies are gone, and I don't mean in the trash!! But today we are being perfect little angels - walking, water, and low calorie/carb only. Feeling better already!!

I have a couple of ideas for you for the new challenge thread for 2011 -

Steady As She Goes!
One Day At A Time! (seems to be the story of my week)
Progress, not Perfection

I need to get back to the basics of this challenge before the year is out!!

Fluff, lovely and soft, angora.

Peg oh no not more goodies, hide it at the bottom of the freezer, or is it too late?
Today did 5 miles WATP and 20 mins on the bike, may 'play' on the Wii later

Having to think of a new thread to replace this one in the New Year, make it quicker to load as well as it is quite full now

Well you are doing much better getting back into motion than I am. Yes we found yet another goodie in the freezer. I think they've been breeding and just waiting for us to have a weak moment!! THAT'S IT!!!

Plus we got lethargic and didn't go to the gym afterall yesterday, so we are starting over again today!! So far so good!! I'm scared to see what the scale will say now!! I might have to give myself another week to get everything back under control!! I'm one of those people who can eat carbs for 10 days and gain 10 pounds - it feels like it!!

Back to work now, and NO MORE GOODIES!!!I WILL GET BACK ON TRACK TODAY!!!!!!!!!

I sure hope the rest of you are having an easier time than me getting back to your programs!!

Later this morning DH is bringing my recumbent bike down in front of the tv as it has been upstairs all over Christmas so need it back

Praying for Nancy this morning and hoping all goes well

Nancy, thinking about you today. Hope all is going well.

Yesterday after throwing out all the goodies, we later discovered a stash at a time when we were both feeling weak, so that blew it for the day. Oops!! If at first we don't succeed....

The day is still young, but I am so far doing great and feeling positive and determined to stay on track! Slept 7.5 hours and woke without an alarm - must be caught up on sleep. Had a healthy breakfast, now drinking my third glass of water, and waiting for DH to finish phone calls so we can go visit the gym downstairs! He put on weight too and wants me to get him started in the gym this week. He's never worked out in a gym before - should be interesting!

Wish me luck with staying the course today!! I am certain there are no more goodies left in the house, and hopefully neither of us will break down and buy any more!!

Once we break the pattern of eating off track, we'll be off to the races again, but the first few days are going to be difficult for all of us!! Hang in there everyone!! We're doing it!!

It was a wonderful Christmas but now it's time to get back at it!! All the leftover goodies are out in the trash, and DH and I have a date to do a cardio walk at the mall before a good seafood dinner with no carbs!! I'm not looking at the scale for one week because I know that whatever I put on will be gone that soon!!

BACK ON TRACK TODAY!!! NEW YEAR'S EVE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!

Many are still finishing Christmas Day while we are waking up on Boxing Day! Our Christmas dinner was a huge success with conversation non stop sharing differences and similarities between the different religions and cultures that were represented here. Truly eye opening just how similar we all are!!!

One similarity that seems to be sticking with me is the fact that each of them has someone in their family who has diabetes!!!! It truly is a world epidemic!!

They each brought their favourite dessert and we all sampled each others favourites, but none wanted to take more than one piece while leaving, so we now have a table covered in goodies. We are allowing ourselves today to sample what we want and then it is all getting tossed and we are back on track tomorrow morning!!

I hope you all have had a happy Christmas Day!!!!!

Afternoon dear friends,

Peg - from an old child's cartoon - "Knowing is have the battle" Knowing you have the weakness means that you will be able to deal with it in the proper way. Hang in there girl.

Nancy - I do believe that everyone is probably very busy and just not posting. I know for Mona's status she has been baking lots of cookies.

I won't be around until Sunday now so wanted to be sure that I dropped of this bit of Christmas cheer.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU. GOD BLESS AND ENJOY YOUR WONDERFUL FAMILIES.

Dore

Believe you can and your halfway there.

OK, this has not been one of my better days for sticking to my plan! I've been puttering around the house with the final touches to decorations, cleaning and doing initial prep work for the dinner, but no real cardio and I've been nibbling all day - not on veggies!! The good news is that I think by Christmas Day I will not want any more goodies and they will be done for another year!! I do have such a weak spot when it comes to shortbread!! DH and I are both feeling like we have overdone it today, and New Year's resolutions will be started right after Christmas this year!! I only hope I don't do too much damage to my progress before it's over!!

Morning all
this week has just disappeared.
We had Emma all weekend and then went to the panto with her on Tuesday and it has just been rush rush rush...lol..tehn a day of resting..lol
All the shopping is done and the wrapping(finally) and that is it, what we don't have, we go without!!

Today is major cleaning day and then just cooking to do. On Christmas Day it is just dh and I but both sons, dils, and gd will be here on the day after,plus 2 dogs so maybe a little crazy

Merry Christmas to you all and I wish you a healthy and Happy New Year, where all your dreams can come true, or at least a little closer

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! TRAVEL SAFE!!

We did do a number on some shortbread and mince meat tarts last night while stringing popcorn for the tree, but my metabolism seems to FINALLY be able to handle a BIT of abuse because I still weigh the same this morning - what a relief!! But I know I better stay away from it today because two days in a row would really be pushing it!

We are now ready for the final touches before Christmas, and it feels good! I think a nice day off for ME time is in order!!

Have a great day everyone!

Evening all,

It has rained all day long. Now the wind is picking up. All I can say is that I am so glad that this rain is not snow. It would be more snow than we could deal with.

Peg - that is the best way to deal with a bad day. Put it behind you and move forward. I have found that the days I have the most trouble staying the course are the days when I haven't gotten enough sleep. I eat to stay awake to get done what I need to get done.

Nancy - it is so good to see that you have a better attitude this week. Enjoy your Christmas and let the 28th take care of itself. Don't let it spoil your holiday.

Going to have a quiet week.

Dore

Good morning all! Yesterday was not a good one! Too tired from lack of sleep after the concert so I did not stay on program - no cardio, drank diet coke instead of water, and I got into the Christmas goodies - Ouch!! How many carbs and calories are in 5 pieces of shortbread and 4 pieces of fruit cake anyway?? TOO MANY!!!

Got caught up on sleep last night - 9 hours! I'm up and feeling strong and positive again, ready to put yesterday beind me and stay on program for the day!! Who'd of thought that sleep was so important for weight loss!!! I'm off to drink all the water I can today!!

Have a great one everybody!!

Hi all,

Using the day to get some little things around the house done. DH will be home for the weekend so not planning too much. He hardly be here though but as I told him, I will take what I can get.

It is snowing again. I don't feel too bad about this as most our snow had melted. This I hope will hang around for us so that we can claim we had a white Christmas.

Mona - glad to hear that you are feeling so much better. Its not fun to be sick during the holidays.

Sue - I know that by the end of Monday you will be tired and tuckered out but isn't it such fun to have the little ones around.

In DH's travels last week he was able to stop by all three housed and got to see all 4 of the grandkids. It really made his week.

I am currently being very careful with what I eat through the holidays, but then I am going to focus on really getting down to business after the first of the year. DS is moving out to start his new job on the 27th so will be home alone and can fix the kind of meals I like and need. No excuses.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi There !! Doing great here in Dubai too!! We are in the final stages of Christmas prep today with stringing popcorn and finishing decorating the tree the only things on the agenda!!

Last night was a very late night for us - Bryon Adams (from Vancouver) was in Dubai and we just had to go see his concert - I'm still singing his songs in my head, my throat is sore from belting out the songs with him, my hands are tingling from all the clapping, and my ears are still ringing - love it!! I'm going to be "18 Until I Die"!!!

Eating choices yesterday were not great, but still maintaining my weight so not too bad. More freggies today!!

Keeping up the battle!!

How are you all doing?
Finishing off wrapping presents today and making sure the decorations are all up before we get Emma on Saturday,her mum said she is beside herself with excitement at coming for the whole weekend..lol..I think what we are feeling is a mixture of excitement and dread and knowing we are going to be shattered by Monday morning...lol

Glad you got back to the gym, Mona, I know how much you enjoy it
That box of chocs for your mom is huge, wonder how long it will take her to get through that, tell her thanks for the offer and if she could save one with nuts in that would be great..lol

Hope you are all on top of getting ready for Christmas, try to take some time for YOU as well,don't wear yourselves out

hugs

Hi all,

Fluff - I think I have to agree with you. Mother Nature sure does seem to be confused this year. It is currently 46 here in "snowy" Idaho. We have another storm coming but it is supposed to only be rain.

Peg - My early years as a married woman were down by the Gulf of Mexico and so I remember spending Christmas in shorts and playing frizbee outside on Christmas day. We even ran the air conditioner one year. Have been raised up against Lake Erie, It was certainly a different experience for me.

Mona - hope you are feeling better. It could just be the different weather you have been having.

Nancy - so glad that you are doing better. Doing this for you now will make for a better recovery later.

Well the Christmas cards are mailed, and I just have one more sweater to finish up. Ran out of the right yarn so will have to wait for DH's pay day to buy more but not much left to do.

Heading down to little Ava's tomorrow.

Hope that everyone has a great day tomorrow.

Dore

OK I won't mention Dubai weather again until June!!It is going to be pretty weird to have a hot Christmas though!! DH's brother sent us pictures of a snow storm in Sault Ste Marie, and we both got a little teary eyed - what's up with that!!

Presents are wrapped and shipped off, tomorrow we are putting up some decorations. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!! Shortbread and fruitcake are still stashed away and safe!! Usually I'm out buying the second batch by now!! Progress right!!

Hi all! I hate to tell you all that the weather here is perfect but it is true - mid to high 20's no wind, snow or rain in sight!

Did my last bit of gift shopping today and tomorrow starts the wrapping, shipping and decorating the house for Christmas. We have a huge turkey in the freezer, fruit cake and shortbread stashed, and all the trimmings for the house. We are inviting anyone we know who will not be able to go home for Christmas to join us for a turkey feast on Christmas day, so we are getting ready. We always did the big family dinner and we miss it over here.

Keeping up the healthy habits - freggies, water, exercising, no whites, and sleeping well. I will be keeping it going throughout the Christmas holidays as well. OK maybe a bit of fruit cake and shortbread - I never claimed to be perfect!!

Took Tylenol cold today and I really do feel better tonight. I am still not going out tomorrow as it is to be pouring rain starting tonight and winds 20-30 MPH. It has been grey and damp all day.

I am wondering if the swimming is causing me to pick up colds more. I know it is so hot in the pool area and freezing in the locker room and coming outside. I sure hope I adjust because I love the water aerobics.

Take care everyone. Nancy~~you sound better. Like Dori said, keep positive and rest!! We are all praying for you!! Fluf~~you keep warm and dry too. How are all the "kids"?? Hugs!!

Afternoon all,

Yesterday when I talked to Aurora, I asked if 5 felt different than 4 - - her answer was typical Aurora --- No silly - its just a number Nanna. Just love that little one.

Mona - hope that you are feeling better today. You surely don't need a cold hanging over at this time of the year. You sure have been battling colds and the flue lots this year. Hope that this is the last one. Glad also to hear that it is warming up for you.

Sue - we will be down at Ava's house for Christmas. So will let them run the Christmas arrangements. I have been asked though to bring my DD favorite dish - sweet potato souffle. It is the only time that she will eat sweet potatoes.

Nancy - we have had a simple or scaled back Christmas now for a few years. We find that we prefer to give as needed through out the year and not make just one big gift once a year.

Keep your chin up and rest as much as possible. Go into your surgery with a strong, rested body and you will heal better.

Fluff - glad to hear that the foot is healing.

Peg - looking forward to stories of your adventures.

Dore

Dore, my DH is working nights all over Christmas and finishes the morning of the 26th so we are having the family over for dinner on the 26th

Hi everyone~~

Stayed the same with my weight this week. I can see that the holidays are going to be really hard.

I am getting a head cold and sore throat!! But did manage to get cards done and packages mailed today.

Dore~~NO!!I cannot believe Aurora is 5. Where has the time gone. Tell her that her Aunt Mona wishes her a happy birthday and sends hugs!!!! Got up to 52 today so a bit better. Looks like a few warmer days but right back into the deep freeze. Looks like 18 for Tuesday morning.

Nancy~~between the holidays and your upcoming surgery just try to concentrate on drinking lots of water and making as many wise choices as you can. Just keep on posting and don't give up!! You are in my prayers.

Pegi~~I am so glad to see you. Sue and I thought you might be traveling again. How exciting that trip must have been.

Fluf~~ I am so sorry they are doing all of this crazy stuff~~I hope you can make some good sales on your crafts and that the government doesn't make things harder for you. Hugs and prayers!

Take care everyone. Hugs to all!!

Afternoon all,

Nancy an Peg - so good to have you both back and chatting. We miss you when you are gone.

The weather here is warmer than both Fluff and Mona are having. It is the high 30's right now. It is dropping with the approach of night. Instead of snow this past week it has been raining. I can say that I am glad that its not snow - I truly would have been buried under feet of snow if it had been.

It is going to be a very quiet Christmas around here. DH probably won't be home until the 24th and then will have to leave back out on the 27th. Life certainly has gotten different since he started driving over the road. I seem to be making the adjustments okay. (I hope)

Keeping Preston in my thoughts and prayers.

Nancy - try to not focus on the what if's. Just take it one day at a time. Make each day special and enjoy the good things taking place that day. The day of your surgery will go just fine and will then be over so that you can heal.

Hope that you all have a good weekend.

Dore

Hey there gang! I've missed you all!! We have been travelling in Egypt, Oman, Jordan, and UAE with very little time for Sparking. I've been keeping in touch with the 8 week battle team only, and even that has been minimal due to lack of internet at most of the places we stayed at.

So I'm back to the battle!! I have managed to basically maintain throughout the travelling which is a major accomplishment for me!! Lots of activities and making good food choices for the most part, but not good enough to lose much. So I'm back to work at it now.

I thought about all my Spark friends a lot, especially every time I realized we were doing something active that 60 pounds ago would have been either very uncomfortable or even impossible. It's a whole new world, and I feel like a new woman!! I am totally committed to keeping up the battle until I reach my goal now!!

I'll be around for the rest of December, getting ready for Christmas.

hello all

Fluff, these governments don't like to make anything simple do they, they should help people to help themselves, not penalise them

Nancy, so good to see you, you know we are thinking of you and praying for a good surgery and quick recovery. Worry about the weight afterwards, focus on getting healthy for now

Been out to town to pick up a few things, had to walk on the side of the roads as the pavements are thick with ice, but got back in one piece

hi everyone, hope everyone will have a merry christmas.


I miss logging on and have been off program, gained about 6 lbs from comfort eating, the last week, have been caught up with getting prepared for my surgery, which is dec 28, the good thing is that it will be robotic, and easier recovery,

feeling ok when I keep busy, i will be off for 6 weeks, that is alot of time for recooping and getting better,

christmas is pretty streamlined this year, did a little shopping yesterday, but since i have to work and then surgery, it is low key.

best to all, i am off today , so back to bed i go,

ROFL!! I wonder if I heard my neighbor yelling what I would do. Probably call 911. My poor sis!! And I have a bit of a sore throat myself this morning. And no yelling here--only in my thoughts. emoticon

I am sure Anna will let me know how things go with Preston. I will let you all know as soon as I hear.

Fluff~~I didn't see snow in the forecast for Monday on the morning weather today. I surely hope not!!

Dore~~keep safe. Winter fog is terrible. I remember in PA that some days we couldn't see our neighbor's house.

Nancy~~hope you are doing well.

Have a great day everyone. Hugs!! emoticon

We are praying for Preston and Anna and family.

Dore, I may go on the glucosimine, as you say even though they did tests and say it doesn't help, it makes us feel as if it is helping.

I hope you don't get snow just yet, far too early for anyone..lol, it would be perfect just Christmas Eve until Christmas morning, then go!
Have a sore throat and cough today, think it was shouting down the phone to dad who hadn't replaced his receiver properly and I needed to tell him,so I could use my own phone. It took 10 mins before he heard me, Heaven knows what the neighbours thought

Fluff, hope all your indoor and outdoor kids are okay and keeping warm

Hi everyone~~ This is me, the person who complained about the heat all summer!! Oh my!! We broke another record this morning~~16 degrees at the airport. I got up at 2AM and lit our fireplace and I won't go to bed if we have a fire burning. So not a restful night. Our heat pump just doesn't handle this type of cold. And we have no basements. To top it off they showed snow for Monday. Unreal!!

Everyone take care!!

Did you see the prayer request for Preston. He is back in hospital in Cincinnati. Still doing well but one of his numbers that they watch was high and they wanted to see why. They are praying to be home for Christmas this year. I told Anna I would let others know to be praying.

Good day all,

After only two days of taking the glucosimine I already am noticing a difference. So while the Dr. doesn't agree, I am going to continue to take it.

Also the grandbaby is teething but the Dr. says its too early. I haven't raised my kids and not recognized the signs. The baby is fussy, runny nose, drooling, and can't keep her fingers out of her mouth. She is teething.

Hope that everyone has a good day.

Hi all,

Dore - I too take glucosimine. My doc says it really soesn't make a difference but I find when I don't take it after awhile my knee "clicks" when I walk. I have arthritis in it and very little cartilage (almost bone on bone). So despite what the doc says Itake it, maybe it is psychological but what the heck. Very cold here in RI. Lows in the 20's highs in the upper 30's plus wind chills. I find as i get older I feel the cold in my hands more. BBRRRRR! Love ya all

Hi all,

I find it hard to believe what a difference in the weather a few miles can make. Mid-40's, sunshine, and no snow or rail. Oh well. That's what its like at my daughter's place.

The knee is doing better. I have once again started taking gluclosimen and it seems to be helping the joint move better. Should never have stopped but I get tired of taking pills. Good thing I don't have anything that I have to take a pill every day. I would not do well.

Fluff - hang in there. I hate legal stuff but our lives often depend on others to pull their weight so that things run smoothly.

Mona - how are you doing? I can see that you and Fluff are suffering from the cold. You were colder this morning than I was. LOL

Sue - the bright side is that you are going to have a white Christmas.

Have a good day.

Dore

Dore, hope your knee is feeling easier and that your weather sorts itself out and the water soaks in quickly. We are all concerned what will happen with a sudden thaw but so far no sign of any thaw. It is -6C which is 17F in the daytime today and the night before last it was -15c which is 5F so b****y cold

Fluff, the only times I heard of animals going crazy like that is when they can sense some bad weather coming

Mona, hope your arm is feeling better.

I see Kasey posting on her status daily and have answered them but nothing,oh well they will pop in when they can I expect.

Hope you all have a good day and keep warm

hugs

Hi- yes its 28 !! at 9pm.. worried about my little strays- I saw all but 1 today- and that one is always here.. hope to see her tomorrow.
Moosh finally came out and is being normal..scared me.. he has never done anything like that and the hissing and cowering in the night was upsetting.... oh well.
I got a hold of my Bankruptcy Lawyer from legal aid- good thing- she had had my papers yet again for a month- it was 3 months last time.. and says we have to have it in by Tuesday.. guess she had not seen that- so we have to scurry now!!! venting- I will have to go to court in Charleston when they set the date - she says Jan.. Hope Fred will take me around will ask him to get that day off and I can drive to his house in Mt Pleasant. another major over.. thankfully.

Hi everyone~~

Our dog gets wired every once in awhile too Fluff and I have NO idea why he gets like that. Are you freezing? OMG!! It was only 26 here this morning.

I had an e-mail from Anna and little Preston had to go back to Cincinnati for some tests. He is still doing very well but one of his numbers is off and they want to make sure of what is going on. I told Anna I was going to ask those of you who know him to pray that whatever it is, he will be fine and be home for Chritmas this year.

Dore~~That does sound like an awful mess. Be careful!! Hugs!!

Sue~~I haven't heard from Kasey or Peggy but I do see where Peggy is posting on the 8 week challenge.

I had a good day today~~even though I was freezing. Went to WA and had a great workout. I was also down two more pounds for the 8 week challenge team. My goal for Jan 1 was 90 pounds and right now I am down 89.

Nancy~~how are you doing?? We miss you. Your surgery is right after Christmas isn't it??

Have a great evening everyone!! Hugs to all!!

Good afternoon dear friends,

Sorry to have been missing over the weekend. Our friends funeral was on Friday and there was so much going on concerning everything, I pretty much stayed away from computer.

But its a new week and so we get going.

Sue - with all the snow we have had we have now had 2 days of rain on top of that. Talk about mess. There is still the snow, but underneath it all is a lake. It is really such a mess.

The changing weather is really playing havoc with my knee. Today has not been a good day so once I chat with my teams on Sparks, I am going to get in my recliner and get my leg up.

I hope to be more consistent now till the end of the year in posting.

Hope that you all have a great day.

Dore

I sent goodies to Kasey and Peg saying we missed them but have heard nothing, have any of you heard from them?
I made a few comments on friend feeds as well but nothing, but they are posting elsewhere

It's one day Fluff, get right back on track as Mona said and it will be fine.

We had no more snow overnight but it is freezing now, so maybe no thaw today, we had a slow, very slow thaw yesterday,but it is hard ice now. We don't have to go out so hoping for better conditions in the week, not seen a forecast, I don't want to know if it is bad..lol

Today is a lazy day, just cooking and then clearing up after and reading. I am halfway through a James Patterson and want to finish it

well Fluff, I don't know what time it was when you had already had 300 cals but am guessing it was early, but 300 is okay for a breakfast and just go and track for the rest of the day what you can have

Another inch of snow overnight, I am now officially cheesed off..lol

Jobs to do in the house and so will bbl

Hope you are all safe from the storms.
We have sunshine and the snow has stopped so we went to town to the PO and to do some food shopping.

It felt great to get out, I found a benefit from all the snow shovelling this week I lost 4lbs..lol

Hi everyone~~

Seems like I just cannot get caught up.

We didn't get any storms at all the other night. Hard rains but that was it. Did you get storms Fluf. My daughter in Atlanta was okay where she was but the area they used to live in had some bad damage from a tornado. Hope their house at Pawleys is okay. They have a neighbor that checks on it every day.

Dore and Sue~~you two are going to be so sick of winter and it doesn't officially start until Dec. 21.


Take care everyone. Hugs to all!!
