Vicki get the pice to talk to Bryan. Get him to understand the ramifications of them getting involved.

I understand your frustration with your mum and sitting down to talk is a good thing.

Praying for you

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

I totally get you ladies. With some of the stresses that have been poppin up with Bryan and back to school. I have been snacking too much. For me its carbs. Crackers and PB or crackers and hummus. Granted hummus is healthy if you eat a whole tub of it with a box of crackers its not. So I try to allow myself the flavor of the snack but portion it out, and stick to the portion! Do I always succeed? No not always but I try my hardest.

Still dealing with some school stress and home stress. My mom interfered in the incident with my son a couple weeks back where he took off and wasnt coming home and he wanted the cops to come so they could confront him. She lashed out at me, threatened to call CPS and that I was the one setting him off and basically hid him from me when I had the police looking for him cause I didnt know where he was or if he was ok. So Im not speaking to her right now and its hard. Im gonna try and sit down with her and talk to her but I know that doesnt always work well with her so to save my own sanity if I have to just not be on speaking terms with her for a while then thats what I have to do!

Cathy, I am part of that 95% that can't seem to keep the weight off either. I love ice cream and gelato among other sweets. My downfall is pasta, rice, and breads; I can't seem to stay away from them.

Georgia, I hope you have a great trip. You and your dh always take the best pictures. Makes me want to visit Australia. Not sure I could handle the plane ride. I'm not good with heights.

Everyone else, do hope all is well with you and yours.

me, hanging in there as usual. Need to get my act together and return to eating healthy and exercising on a regular basis. I haven't been able to get a set schedule together as I'm up at 2:30 am to get ready to be at work for 4am; clock out at 1pm and by the time I get home after working...I just don't have the energy to do much of anything.

As I st here typing I am eating a lovely ice cream. Do not feel bad Cathy but we shall overcome this demon too. I shall pray for us to overcome this.
Thank you for your good wishes. I shall take lots of photos and post them after we get back. Limited internet out there.

I am with you my sweet friend, Georgia. I know I should only eat one portion (my downfall is mainly Gelato) and when I am stressed it is my go to at night...the worst time. I have a hard time staying consistent with things lately as there are so many interruptions. I am also not consistent with tracking, yet research shows this to be very successful.

Only 5% of people that lose weight keep it off. Those 5% track at least part of the time. That is why I am trying so hard to get back into it. As I get older, I am getting so down from life and from all the aches and pains. I. Feel. Old. But I want to change that.

I hope you have the most wonderful relaxing time in the outback. I am sure you will get some amazing pictures as always.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Cathy I hope the migraine is gone by now.

I don't use the fitbook. I too need accountability but my issues are more mentally motivated. As soon as I get really stressed bang eat eat eat.
I need my mental addressed and finding someone is the issue. Why do I self destruct? Why do I not stop at one? etc etc.

I need some peace to find myself and I am hoping this journey to the ouback will do this.

Only 2 more sleeps......Thank God and I pray I can get through this day without too much drama. I pray for no more ridiculous customer complaints...etc...People are so complaining these days for no reason.

Georgia, I hope you find the peace and rest that you need. And finding those moments of peace alone are hard.

Praying for some peace filled moments for you as well Dee.

I am fighting a migraine today. Getting a little better thankfully.
I am going to start using my Fitbook to record my eating and exercise. It's just time. I really need the accountability and to keep track of what I am eating to see what is causing my GI to react.
Anyone else use the Fitbook?

Hoping everyone else is doing well.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Georgia, I hear ya. I'm finding I'm getting more tired and not looking forward to going to work lately. Think I need some mental health days, but most of my days off are spent either going to doc appointments for me or dh and not spent just chilling which I think I need most of all.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well

me, hanging in there. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Cathy you have no idea how r4eady I am for change. Change in so many areas of my life. I am so tired of trying to make everyone happy. I just want some peace.

Thankfully in only a week or so I shall be going on a vacation with my DH and as far from here as possible. I just need the peace of the outback. Isolation and no stress.

Weight just creeps up and all stress related - stress equals eating for me.

I got good results so far from the doctor. Just some blood work and hopefully that too will be good.

Hugs to all. Love you ladies.....

I am ready to start fresh as well, Dee and Georgia. Things have been pretty tough here, but I am getting through.
I am tired of being overweight and want to change it. Let's do this! We can do this together!
Georgia, I hope all is well with your health and your doctor appt. goes well.
Dee, how are you doing?
So sorry I've been MIA.
School started, Josiah has been having an incredibly hard time and that has not been fun and life goes on.
Let's just leave the past behind us and move forward to a better future.
I am ready!

Hugs to all, Cathy

me, Hurricane Harvey is over Texas today. lots of wind and rain. Made it to work and back today no problems. The wind was a lot stronger coming home at 1pm then it was at 3:20am this morning. You would not believe the amount of folks who came to the store in the pouring rain to shop and then got upset cause the lines were long. Well duh! Folks called in and said they weren't coming to work due to weather conditions. Rain stopped for a bit about 11 but started again just before 1.

Dee, I struggle in the summer months as well. It doesn't get near as hot here as it does by you, but I hate hot and humid weather and tend to be less active as well. We will get through this together!

Georgia, the dog training is going super well! We just had our 3rd session with both the pups and they are doing far better than I could ever have imagined! The trainer is really great and I am getting more movement from the training we do at home. We just got the pups Service Dog and Therapy Dog vests and so it seems so much more real. The trainer who is a top trainer in this area said that our dogs will be excellent at their jobs. That was a huge relief and compliment! Yay! The training is a wonderful diversion from all the drama.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs, Cathy

me, hanging in there. Need to get active again and control my eating I've gained 10 pounds in the last few weeks. The temps here have been in the high 90s to low 100s but the heat indexes have reached 108 to 110. So not spending a lot of time outdoors. Work is going well. Tomorrow will be my sixth straight day of work then have one day off then work two days and have another day off. Thank goodness for calendars or I would have a hard time keeping track of it all.

Georgia, I hope your mum is okay. Hugs! And thanks, I did receive your hug!

Things are hard here, but we are doing our best to make things okay. So tired of the drama.
The girls and I are staying busy with the dogs and cats and training with the dogs. We are progressing well with training the 2 Pyr pups for Service Dog for Kelsa and I am working with Courage to be a Therapy Dog. Though training is going well, I'm not sure about some of the methodology the trainer uses. She is very successful and nothing she is doing so far is bad, just seems a little forceful. We shall see with time and careful watching and consideration.

The floods have receded, but the smell hasn't. My whole yard smells like fish. ugh. It will take time, but hopefully soon this smell will go away.

I am tired and sometimes discouraged with the drama with the boys. Must just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

I hope you are all doing well.

Hugs, Cathy

Kids are getting packed up and off the go in the morning. My mom gave me a scare today. I had ot heard from her all weekend. I was ready to send someone from her apartment complex to go check on her but then she called. Was a very scary moment. She was not feeling great, and sleeping alot. Hoping she is ok!

Sending energy bunnes for you to achieve it all without getting too tired Becky.

Back to work for me after 2 lovely weeks off work.

Last night my mum went to hospital and my brother took her. I have hardly slept all night with worry. As we women tend to do.

Shall ring shortly to see how she is.

Crazy busy here. A work project that I started almost 1 1/2 years ago and thought was done in early June ended up taking a lot of my time in July. Tomorrow, I start back full time on campus with meetings - I am still teaching summer school, so tomorrow my day runs 8a to 10p. Wednesday is 8a to 8p. Ugh. I will be worn out by Thursday, which has Liam's school registration in the morning and a presentation at a meeting in the afternoon. Already looking forward to Friday and it's only Monday. Not how I like to start a week. Oh well, breathe!!!

Hugs to all.

Vicki enjoy the 10 days kid free. Renew and rejuvenate in that time.

Cathy sorry to hear of dramas with the boys. I am giving you a hug and I hope you have received it.

Terrible regards the flooding. May it dry out very quickly.

I hear you on the weight loss. I cannot get my act together since our return. Will try harder tomorrow.

Hugs to all.

Vicky, I hope the kids have a great time at camp and you enjoy some you time. I am sure you will miss them.

Georgia, so glad you and Barry had such a wonderful time away! There is always hope...just hard to see through the hard storms of life. Hope you got a wonderful peaceful rest.

Dee, I hope you are resting well and feeling better each day. How scary that had to be! Praying for a complete recovery and no extra heartbeats when you go back!

Me, I am working hard to trust God in all these trials. Some major issues with the kids (the boys) and it's been hard and heartbreaking, but one day at a time we will get through this.

We have had record rain and our entire yard area flooded worse than it ever had. We were within 1 foot of the water creeping over the highest part of our yard before it all came in to the house. We have flooding in our basement that has to be constantly pumped out. Not too much got ruined and thankfully it is an unfinished basement. We are keeping fans running or it will get really musty. With all this rain it is overloaded our septic and we are on very limited water usage. That isn't fun! But again, we will get through it.

Me, trying so hard to get to me! But something always gets in the way! I am getting tough about me time and just taking it no matter what drama is going on with these boys.

I just want to lose this weight! Let's do this ladies!! emoticon emoticon

I will start up a new thread when we get to August which is right around the corner.

Hope all are doing well! Hugs, Cathy

HI All, hope all is well with you and yours.

me, had the procedure done on Thursday to hopefully get rid of the extra heartbeats. I'm now on a new medicine as the extra beats were still showing after the procedure. Ended up having to stay overnight for observation because of that. I go back in a month's time to see the surgeon and hopefully by then the extra beats will no longer be there. Was told that when they go into the heart to do the ablation that it disrupts the heart and can cause the extra beats to appear. I'm doing okay, just sore and a bit tired. I have off til Wednesday when I return to work. So I plan on taking things easy and resting cause they said that was the best thing to do.

Sending hugs and prayers to everyone!

Need to get much better at taking care of myself in the midst of struggles and trials. I am horrible at this right now.

I am trying, though.

Things are difficult, but I am giving it to God as much as possible and then getting out of the way to let him do what only He can do. sigh

I hope all of you are doing well. I think of you all the time and AM GOING to be better about getting on Spark.

Georgia, your trip sounds like ours in June - 3 days to get to our main destination, dinosaur tracks, and then less direct way home to see fun stuff. Enjoy! We sure did.

Cathy, so sorry things are rough. Sending extra special hugs your way.

Going on a vacation - yippee!!!

We leave Sunday morning and are driving west. I have made a plan of destinations and the first couple of days driving straight reasonably fast to get to the first place (about 3 days to get there) and then spend 3-4 days exploring the area. I want to go to see where the dinosaurs have left footprints but the road to it can be rugged so we shall see.

Then leisurely return via many small towns on a zigzag pattern till we get home. Should be away 10-12 days.

Hugs to all.

I am hoping he will cope. So far seems good.

Hi everyone!

I didnt see where anyone started a July thread so I didnt wanna start one without permission. Just wanted to check in. It seems if I miss a notification I stop getting the emails.

SO I just wanted to check in. Im on facebook more than I am on Spark now but I always want to know how you ladies are doing.

So I moved in May! The kids finished school in june and did very well. Now they are off for the summer. Ive been off for the past 2 weeks but I return to work teaching on the 10th for the 6 week summer session with my students. My son is looking for a job while my daughter is just in a hurry to grow up!

Things are going well! Ive decided to become a Beachbody coach because the beachbody program has really helped me get out of my weight loss stall! Im loving it and loving the connections I am making!

I hope you are all well!!!!!!

My dear sweet Dee that is a lot for any one to have to deal with. I am praying for both of your health issues. My goodness no wonder you are eating. Please know that although far away we are here for you. Vent as often as needed because it is good to talk to someone. I shall pray for you both. Mind games are good. Maybe even some computer suduko and jigsaws and other games. I play a few daily to challenge myself and keep my mind active.

Please try and find good choices for the stress eating. Like fruit, or make some protein balls.

Sending big hugs from across the seas.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

HI All, hope you are having a nice day/evening.

Sending Hugs, Prayers, Support, and Motivation to All who need it!!

me, hanging in there as usual. Lots going on here. Have been keeping quiet about it all but today felt the need to let you all know what is going on.

I have an extra heartbeat, it was found during a physical, have been seeing a cardiologist for some time now. Was sent to a surgeon who decided I needed to have a procedure done to eliminate the extra beat as it is weakening my heart. Went in May to have it done, was on table...prepped and ready to put me out....they started to give me a drug to bring the extra beat on...got to the max they could give me and it wasn't working. Had to stop the procedure as the drug was causing my blood pressure to drop dangerously low. I then had to lay on my back for 4 hours before I was allowed to sit up and then go home.

I now have to go back in July and they will again try to do the procedure but I will be monitored first to see if the extra beats are there. If they are they will do the procedure, if not, i will be sent home.

My dh's CLL is back, was only in remission for a year and a half after chemo treatments. He is now on a new drug that hopefully will put him back into remission, he just started it a few days ago. On top of that....he has been tested and found that his short term memory is going away. This has been a very frustrating situation not only for him but the rest of the family. The doc does not want to put him on meds for it just yet, and has suggested he do things to help his memory like sudoko, crossword puzzles, video games, etc., the more active learning he can do for his brain/memory the better.

So this is what life has thrown at us lately. I've been eating and eating and eating with no exercise but what i do at work.

Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to let you all know why I haven't been posting as much as I used too.

Thanks, Georgia. (Suffice it to say that a mental health issue of a dear loved one, which has been really bad for about 18 months, is finally getting under control, but in that time it wore down my defenses and stressed me out about a lot of things.)

Hi! Just popping in briefly. Not sure if I will be returning to SP or not - in case you didn't see my FB status, after 2 social media "vacations" since February, I find that I am happier when I am not as "connected." Maybe it's because I worry about people - I want to check in a lot to see how they are doing. Not practical & not necessarily healthy. But I really like my Spark buddies and the support I get here, and so I am leaving this option open for now.

Hugs to all!

I hear you Cathy. I have started with Weight Watchers and have stuck to it 4 out of 7 days.

Even though I am still with in the weekly allowances some of my choices have been ridiculous.

Going to try better this week.

Georgia, I know, me too. So busy.

It's been so hot, humid and rainy here, ugh.

Slowly preparing and moving over to Paleo/AIP (Auto-Immune Protocol) eating plan. I am hoping that it will help with my GI issues, inflamation and weight loss. I am eating less and less grain and very little processed food. I sometimes slip so I am going slow and giving myself grace. I am preparing in that I want to be ready to stay on this plan faithfully for a minimum of 30 days and ideally 45-60 days as that is where people have seen the most success. After that, I will reassess and see where I want to go.
So many plans just haven't worked for me which is so discouraging. Hoping and praying this one will be it!

How is everyone doing? I am sure you are all quite busy.

Sending great happy thoughts to all!

Hugs, Cathy

Busy days and not enough hours in each to do all I want to do.

Hope you are all well.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Dee I hear you on the treats.

I wish we could all find the magic cure for this.

I get frustrated daily.

My biggest issue is portions. I just love food.
Perseverance is my middle name though and I just keep on trying.

Hugs to all.

Morning All, love the new cafe topic.

Cathy, so glad you listened to your gut and got Courage. Sorry you lost your deposit though.

Georgia, glad you had some time off. I totally understand about the treats.

Vicky, hope all is well

Becky, hope all is well.

Everyone Else, check in when you can.

me, my one more would be to drink more water and either hot/cold tea and cut back on the cocoa. For some reason cocoa has been my go-to drink at home lately. Also have become a Skittles consumer, need to cut those out as well.

Good morning Cathy and I have a feeling Courage is not only going to be good for you but also give you courage to do the things you have to do.
I do not like that you have lost your deposit but sometimes things are out of our hands.

One more ..... for me would one more effort to stop putting so much into my mouth. I have to find self control and portion control.

My aim for June!!!

So today after 3 days off am off to a nursing home for sales for our company. Should be very interesting.

I have achieved enough for thee 3 days off and am relatively pleased with what got done this weekend.

Have an awesome week everyone.

Okay, so Just One More would not be cookies!!

Just One More is all about pushing ourselves in a healthy realistic way. Just One More...step? Mile? Healthy Meal today?
What is your "One More?"
This is our theme for the month. We are going to keep it real and simple. We can do this!!

I am working hard to add steps. I have been doing these Adventure Challenges on Fitbit that are really motivating. They show you the Google Map background of a park or trail with a lot of "pushes" along the way. They have realistic goals and challenges for each day and it is helping me to raise my step average.

I hope everyone is having a very healthy happy day!

Our new puppy, Courage is keeping me moving more as well. He will be another therapy dog. So far this "little" guy is so sweet and good! We had put down a deposit on a pup with another farm for a Pyr, but something kept nagging at me that something just wasn't right. I felt really bad bailing but then again, I lost my deposit because I backed out. The pups just didn't look healthy even though it seems this farm does a lot for their dogs. When I started having that "gut feeling" that things just weren't quite right I knew I needed to just take a step back and wait. They included a health guarantee that was only good IF I gave a particular supplement that they got kickbacks for. So I told the farm I needed to back out for now. I didn't go into detail as I never like to burn bridges. Of course they kept my deposit! sigh
But then, I was just checking into different Pyr farms and breeders to see if they had this same kind of guarantee (apparently and unfortunately it is common) and found that the farm we got our original Pyrs from had ONE MALE LEFT! This is what I wanted all along! God is good and he knows best! So for half the price and an amazing pup from a great farm who brought the pup halfway to me so I wouldn't have to travel so far, we have Courage, our new pup! Sorry for the long story, but it is just such a cool story!!

Sending hugs and good thoughts to all!!

Hugs, Cathy
