Thank you so much Janet! It is going to take me a while to get back up to speed. I cannot believe how many changes there are on Spark. It's bewildering. I don't know where to look first. I hope to have time this weekend to just sit and browse.

I'm happy!

Hi Pammy, nice to meet you.
Just think of all the cardio you will be doing with the moving, don't forget to track it..lol
Your various 'jobs' sound really interesting if sometimes hard work
Neither of my sons is in the military, but I have a friend with a son in the RAF and another friend who has a daughter in the Army, she is a nurse and she has been to Iraq and also Afghanistan
Thank Heavens your boys are home safely and hopefully won't have to go again

hugs

Hello all! I have been on Spark for maybe 3 1/2 years? Hard to remember how long. Just getting back into it after some long time off. I remember a few of you, especially Paula, Nancy, Sadie and Janet. Old friends are so good to have! Though my life is hectic right now, I am going to try to be more active again.

I will be moving soon, just to the other side of town, but it still requires packing up all the stuff and hefting it. I am also currently in the middle of teaching a 12 week program for people with mild cognitive impairment. I have to develop all the content which takes HOURS of work. This besides my regular job as a case manager in a senior center. I also sit some evenings for a frail elderly lady while her caregiver has some time for herself. Oh so much fun! She is an awesome lady.

I have 4 sons and some you will rejoice with me when I say that I have NO sons currently deployed. I went through a total of 3 1/2 years with sons in Iraq, one of them was deployed twice, the first time he was a sniper. It was awful. Any moms out there with children deployed? You just let me know your child's name and I will be in prayer.

Glad to be back to CWO!

Hugs from Pammy

Grandmameeko,That is in North Wales and I am from South Wales but have spent some nice days at Llangollen, beautiful place
I cam to England when I was 4.5 and had to learn English as my first language, being a kid picked it up no problem, now I can't speak Welsh

Sherin, sometimes it is good to have a change and mix things up and it can get us moving again if we are stuck

Hey Sue!! My grandmother was born in Wales, and my grandpa was of Welsh heritage, too. My grandmother's family came to the US when she was 9. I remember her and her mom (my Nain) speaking Welsh to each other when they didn't want us to know what they were saying emoticon . She came from Llanglofflen (not sure of spelling)

Sistas, After a couple of months of no results, just fluctuating between 167 and 170, I have decided to change a few things.
1. I am shooting to lose 5 pounds, not 20 or 30 (to begin with)
2. I am asking you to pray for me as I work on this. I need to get healthier and cannot seem to do it alone
3. Add a little more walking

Thanks for this team. It is great to be part of Christian Women group.
Blessings to you!

Janet, I see you live in Spain now, where in the UK are you from?
I was born in Wales and lived there for nearly 5 years and am Welsh through and through (especially when watching rugby..lol) but we have lived Derbyshire for the last 52 years

My dad's Mother's family were Baptist preachers in Wales so Christianity is in the blood I suppose
see you on the chat thread

Hello everyone, I am Sue from the UK. I have been on Spark almost 2 years and have lost 16lbs..slow going but it is staying off. I have a long way still to go, but I have learnt from Spark not to quit, to just keep starting again if I fall.
I am hoping to get to know you and helping you as I hope you will help me

Hello Sherin and good to see you here again on the team.
I'll certainly be praying for all the needs of your family, work wise & health wise.
I don't know whether other members will see your post here so it might be a good idea to post on BACK FENCE...OR THE PRAYER THREAD, MORE MEMBERS ARE ACTIVE ON THOSE.
Blessings

Hey guys! I am a returnee to Christian Women Over Fifty...sort of:) Just havent posted in a long while. I began Spark People about 4 years ago. I lost 35 pounds by using some minor changes to my lifestyle that Sparkpeople suggested. I recommend Sparkpeople to everyone I know who is trying to make healthy changes.

I have prayer need and I know you are faithful to lift prayer on behalf of Sparkpeople folks.
My 16 year old granddaughter has been having hip pain for several months. There has been no injury though she is very active in sports. She will go to the ortho Dr on Thursday March 26 to have it evaluated. Please pray for her (Ashley) that it will be nothing serious.
Also please pray for her Dad, Mark. He lost his business about 6 months ago and has been out of work since then. He has taken a Paramedic refresher course to reinstate his paramedic license and will have a practical exam on March 30, please pray he will pass that so he can take the written exam and return to work. They also lost their house to fire just before Thanksgiving and are awaiting it to be rebuilt. Please pray that it will be finished soon and also that our daughter will be encouraged as she is the only one working and trying to keep them together financially.
Thanks for what you do!

I'm not new to the team; yet I am. I joined last year when I first discovered the site. At that time I was motivated and on fire to slowly, but inevitably, change my lifestyle. I started with a fitness program, watching what I ate, and joining all of you. I went great guns for seven months---then it got hot, my results were sooooo slow, that I just gradually faded away. First the fitness program went, then the nutrition, and before you know it, I was back where I started from.

I would like to get started again but can't find my 'getup and go" this year. I'm reading The Spark, and it's helping but I'm still sitting on my ever-widening fanny and eating junk, staying up far too late at night and not drinking water.

Help!!! Encouragemenet desperately needed here.

Hi my name is Jan and I found this wonderful web site a little over a week ago. I feel like I've fallen into paradise!! Is that corny? Maybe so but I'm just so excited about everything I learning and all the new friends I'm making.

I have two grown sons and a daughter. When my daughter was little, she would go down the street of our neighborhood and knock on doors asking if they had any little girls she could play with. This network makes me feel a little like that. I've just been going everywhere reading and looking at pictures and learning. . . and asking everyone I know to be my friend. I'm having such a great time.

Thanks for letting me come into this private group. Now I feel part of something very special. I know some of you already. The rest of you, come by my page and tag me, look at my pictures and get to know me too (after all, I "peeped" at you first!!) LOL.

Happy trails to you all . . . can't wait to know you better. Love and grace, Jan

Happy trails . . . see you around the site . . . Jan

Good afternoon -

Don't think I've posted here yet, but "joined" over a week ago. Been "reading" around the site, just trying to "catch up" before talking.

I too am glad to find a group of Christian women. I currently live alone (DH passed away over 4 years ago), and work full-time. Live in PA (north of Philadelphia), but grew up in Maryland. Was born in Alabama, but moved to MD when 2 years old. Met husband in NJ - at a Christian Single Weekend Convention (while living in VA); since he was from PA, that's where I ended up.

I am not really new to the team, but haven't been here in awhile. I want to get involved again, and I need the accountability. The Lord has been speaking to me about being disciplined in my eating (and spending). I believe this is a good step for me in being obedient to Him in my eating.

I will re-introduce myself! I am 57, mother to 4 grown kids (3 boys-well, men now--ages 31, 29, 25, and a daughter 23. My hubby and I have 5 beautiful grandkids, ages 8,7,3 2 (today!) and 1 (in 3 days). we are empty nesters! Yay! we love it! and we are "parents" to 6 kitties (or kids in furry pjs, as my hubby calls them.

We love the lord and are very involved in our church. My hubby is the dead of the audio/visual department and I help in the information center (CD duplication), ladies Bible study, and intercessory prayer. I work full time as a shift supervisor at a chain drug store.

My favorite type of exercise is Walk Away the Pounds, although I havent been very diligent at it lately.

emoticon I have been a SP member since May 26, 2009. Another 1/2 pound and I will celebrate 10# loss. I live in western PA. I am happy to join this team as the title fits me. At first, I joined some teams that seemed attractive and asked some people to be friends. I now find that a couple of the teams just aren't me and a few of the friends I added don't really have that much in common with me. This looks like a great team with women I can really connect with. Missy, nice to see you here. I am blessed to know you already. You are one of the nicest on my list. emoticon

Hi
I'm not new but I am new.
I joined a while back and then got sidetracked by life, putting spark on the back burner. I am happy to say that it is now on the front burner and I am ready to 'press on' My username is Aaltje (that's my Dutch name) but I actually go by Alice. Looking forward to meeting some new friends and getting some inspiration and motivation from you all.

It all starts with Day 1.

Hi! My name is Mona and I am originally from Punxsutawney, PA.(lived there for 39 years) I lived in Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral for 20 years and now live in Columbia SC.

I love the Lord and know He wants me to lose this weight--but without Him I cannot do it. I joined SP in January and have lost 30 pounds but I really need to keep on going.

Look forward to being a part of this team.

Hugs, Mona

Kathy, I'm so glad you are here with us! There are some roads in life we just shouldn't travel alone, and this is one of them. Don't be discouraged. We can't affect past choices today. We can, however, move forward in Godly wisdom, in the strength of the Lord. He will give us to will and to do His good pleasure. We can't even muster up the will on our own. He will fan the flames of that desire in our hearts for us. Many blessings as you work toward meeting your goals and it's a delight to meet you

Hi, I'm back after having been away for a long time. Sadly, also back to needing to take some pounds off again. I am a missionary in Cambodia, and was home in the States where I gained weight in the "land of plenty". All those things I wouldn't normally eat. So here I am, I sure could use some words of encouragement cause I've needed to do this for a while, but haven't. BTW, I need to change my tracker, and the pic was several pounds lighter. Sigh

It's taken me a little while to find my way around the various teams, but I really like what I see hear...love the talks on "the back fence". I'm hoping to get aquainted with all of you! Blessings to you. Laurie

Oh I would swoon over Michael Landon kissing my hand too Missy! What an amazing memory you have in your Book of Life - with Little Joe & the special needs kids AND your memory of being 4 yrs old!!! That's the one that impresses me the most since I can barely recall only a few sketchy items before the age of about 14(ish) ... That is a sad, but true chapter of my life.

Here's hoping everyone gets to a rodeo sometime in their life though!

I haven't been to a rodeo since I was a kid. That's a great idea! When I was four years old, my aunt and uncle took me to a rodeo and Little Joe Cartwright was the star of the show. We sat next to a box of seats for special needs kids and Michael Landon came over and personally greeted a bunch of the kids. On his way around, he kissed my hand. I swooned for about 30 years over that. lol

Hi There Dec 5!!! emoticon to CWO50!

Our family just discovered rodeos last year & have a new favorite thing to take visitors to in Dallas, TX! It is the only professional sport I know of that still starts out with prayer. I never realized how christian based the cowboy sector of the world is, but truly enjoy being in that atmosphere.

I don't live on a farm but I do live out in the country. Yes there is something called country in California. I also have a garden and fruit trees but no chickens as they would not stand a change with our mixed Bengal/Maine Coon cat. We live in a mobile home park but have an unusually large yard for one.

Enjoy your vacation with your Sister! There is nothing like Sistas! Here we are a Circle of Friends. I think of this team a lot, but especially when I hear this song.

"Circle Of Friends"
We were made to love and be loved
But the price this world demands will cost you far too much
I spent so many years just trying to fit in
Now Ive found a place in this circle of friends.

In a circle of friends we have one father
In a circle of friends
we share this prayer
'That every orphaned soul will know
And all will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends'.

If you weep, I will weep with you
If you sing for joy the rest of us will lift our voices too
But no matter what you feel inside theres no need to pretend
Thats the way it is in this circle of friends.

In a circle of friends
We have one father
In a circle of friends we share this prayer
That we'll gather together no matter how the highway bends
I will not lose this circle of friends.

Among the nations, tribes and tongues we have sisters and brothers
And when we meet in heaven we will recognize each other
With joy so deep and love so sweet
Oh well celebrate these friends
And a life that never ends
In a prayer
'That it will not be long before
All will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends.'

Hi! I don't think I have introduced myself to this team - officially. I have been with SparkPeople for quite a while.
I am Nadine from western Oregon, 54 years old with 10 grandkids.
I am a childcare teacher at a Christian School and childcare. I have been on vacation this week in Sunriver with my sister and her family. I love this team! Enjoy your day!

Hi, Tazzie. Very nice to meet you. That's a lotta moving! I pray the Lord to direct your paths of ministry as that time approaches. We've had the blessing of meeting some of our MAPS team members. They are part of the Assemblies of God home missions division. They're retirees who travel around the nation in their RVs, helping to build or repair (in our case repair from Katrina and other damage to the church complex we were moving into) churches, church campgrounds, etc. The different skills these folks have are astounding, many years of experience doing plumbing, flooring, electrical work, glass work. They brought SO much to our church body in the months they were here, also taking part in our church services and fellowships. What a GREAT way to retire, isn't it?! I know God will provide the avenues of ministry your heart is yearning for. Keep us posted!

Hi Missy & emoticon to the team! I am from all over the USA from Pittsburgh, PA to Charleston, SC; Southern Cal.; Northern Cal; Dallas, TX; Atlanta, GA & now back in Dallas.

Hubby & I are currently selling our 15th home as an attempt to downsize in preparation for his retirement & our desire to do missionary work.

I look forward to our paths crossing on the various wonderful threads on this team.

Dallas, TX

I'm on 2 diets cause I don't get enough food on just 1!!
