I'm also doing the 5% Winter Challenge. It keeps me focused when I would rather just give up and curl up with the cold. I have been doing the challenges for over a year. This is my second Winter Challenge, I think.

My winter has been unseasonably warm emoticon for this area. We only had the one snow emoticon on Christmas Eve, and that has been it. We hover in the 40's during the day and in the mid to low 30's at night. I know that this is warm for the entire country, not just the PACIFIC NORTHWEST. My heart goes out to all those who are struggling with low, low temperatures emoticon and inclement cold. This is a very mild winter for us, just rain, rain and more rain emoticon . We are catching a break now with the warmer temperatures - it will be 50 here tomorrow - and some sun emoticon breaks during the day. I am participating in the 5% Winter emoticon Challenge right now. We have two more weeks before it is over, so for now that takes up plenty of my time with a leadership role. Nothing much more is going on for me. The days are the same, get Micah off to school and Jeni to work and then grandma goes to the gym for her work out for the day. I hope that you are all doing well and that things are okay with everyone. Sending positive energy and emoticon to those who need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Lets keep the conversation going! How is your winter been? Mine has been cold, long and dark.

What are some things that are going on for you?

An update about me. I haven't been very active for a while. After three stress filled years I am now unemployed and looking for another job. Since 2014 I have been walking on egg shells at work and trying to maintain. Finally, the job ended at the end of June. I have to admit it was taking everything out of me. I do feel better, but I have to find a job since my income has been the major income for the family. I hope I can be more present here and we can get the team active again.

What's going on in your life?

When I started back substitute teaching this Fall, it negatively affected my health. Now I'm learning to choose my jobs & locations for my mental health and well-being. Some jobs are just not worth what the teens do and get away with (high school in particular).

I had at first wondered if I could manage in a world that has changed so much in the past 30 years. But on the flip side, I have raised 3 children and learned a whole lot of different things in the school of "hands-on" learning. -- Kids are kids, but the method(s) of learning and the lack of attention and the whole electronic EVERYTHING has created a whole different aspect to teaching (some good & some not so!).

Hope you can figure out what your long-term prognosis is... Uncertainty has it's own kind of stress.

Okay...20 days later. Weather has somewhat cleared up to be safe for driving. Jobs are slowly coming in. Taking things a day at a time...

Right now, dealing with an abscessed tooth and trying to get the infection to heal.

Making a plan is hard for me to do since I don't know when/if I will be called in to work on any given day?! Some places have a nice lunch option (ie. time to eat). Other places I'm lucky to have a protein meal bar in terms of no time / place.

DH is home right now since he was laid on Dec. 29th. - Kids both have different schedules & I always feel I'm maneuvering around all of them for fitting in exercise & making healthy foods.
Sigh....

Wind chill here is single digits. It was too cold to take a walk outside today. (Wind gusts in the Columbia gorge up to 65mph.)

Christmas is coming!
Been watching lots of Christmas movies on Youtube and at the Rec Center.
This week I go and get my son from college and then life gets busy with his activities and Christmas.
And my days are super busy at work!

Good outcome from appt w/ acupuncturist today! + Friday was the best blood pressure reading in MONTHS!
DD now has head cold that has gone through the household. emoticon

Really working on remembering / paying attention to how I'm thinking. It DOES make a difference. (ie. glass 1/2 empty or 1/2 full kind of thing)

No, not ready. Just beginning to think about it. No room for a tree. (too much stuff everywhere --no time to sort it out now that I'm working) -- Are you sending Christmas cards out via snail mail?

Dealing w/ illness, bad weather, & numerous dr appts. -- DH loses his job Dec. 31st. That means we lose insurance. Not sure what tomorrow holds right now...

But, I do have the GIFT of today. I can make of it whatever I choose!

Is everyone ready for Christmas?

As I said before my free time (not sure I have any) is being spent crocheting.
I'm making progress on the gifts for everyone.
My youngest is coming home from college this next week. So, I'll be getting back to cooking soon.
I work right up to Christmas, but have a week off afterwards, so not too stressed. What I don't get done before I'll do after.
I'm still doing the 5% challenge here at Spark which keeps me busy with maintaining my workouts, etc.

Hi everyone!

Berry: Wow! We have wind and freezing tempts. I guess Winter is here!

Deby: Welcome to the team!

Been busy with work and everything else. I was foolish enough to say I'd crochet some things for a co-worker to give for Christmas gifts, and of course one item is with a difficult stitch.

A whole lot of town / schools, etc. closed today due to extreme wind, temps, weather & freezing rain. The high winds have blown things to bits around the farm. -- People in town w/ large trees down, and an apartment fire wrecking havoc for fire fighters (due to the wind!).

...tis the season. Winter IS here!

Hi Everyone! Hope you are having an awesome year! I am sitting here when I just realized that part of what is holding me back is fear. Anyone else having this issue? This is the 1st time I have ever thought of fear being the issue. Before I would think, I am "weak", "no willpower", etc. I have fear of hurting myself ( Knees/ back). Ok, I am admit. . .I am a wimp. lol! Actually, I was told a few years back that I have bone on bone in my knees & need a knee replacement. I am NOT excited about that at all!!! Also, I have the fear of how people will treat me. Yes, I do believe many people assume certain things about obese people. &, of course, men look at a woman that is more slim than obese in THAT way.
Ok, now that I am realizing that fear is a factor that is preventing weight loss. How am I going to conquer it? Any suggestions?

Updated the name of this thread. I also got derailed this past few months. Can't entirely blame the holidays. New resolve for the New Year. Working on cutting back on sugar which is my biggest problem.

Hi and emoticon !!!! I allowed myself to get derailed during the holidays, so I have to pick myself up, dust myself off and get back on the wagon too. It's easy to slip up and allow our bad habits to overtake our lives again. I see three days at the gym every week in my future. The important thing is that we all get back to business. Forgive your transgressions and let's get on with the journey!! I love your New Year's statement. Empowered for sure. Take care and God bless, Deb

Hi There!
Long time no see. Sorry I went MIA for so long. Took a major detour on life & myself. SO 43 lbs weight gain, I have always been a major emotional/ boredom eater. I am back.. Boy, was that embarrassing to admit!! But the important point is that I am not giving up on myself. I am here again to FIGHT for me & my health. So, here I go again. . . .

Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas.

Now, let's head into 2016 empowered. . . onto a successful, amazing 2016!

We are decorating the house and the tree tonight. It's a bit of a late start for our household, but it will still be fun. We've had so much rain and flooding in our area it was difficult getting a tree this year. It will be hot chocolate with marshmallows this evening with Christmas carols and lots of good will. May you all have a happy holiday season. Take care and God bless, Deb

Been making some of my gifts for my kids. Now, to finish up shopping. I haven't baked yet this year. Not sure I'm going to. Been working on the house and making things. That's been the focus. I'm really happy with how my house looks.

We have to delay getting the tree because of heavy flooding in our area due to heavy rain storms in our area. The rain is not over yet, predictions of more intense rain showers due this afternoon and evening. I hope that all come through these flood waters with little permanent damage, but it isn't looking that way. This doesn't usually happen even here in Portland, Oregon. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

l. This is a good site for estimating calories burned when your exercise doesn't fit into anything listed on spark. It lists everyday house hold chores, exercises, and sports activities. Today I did Jessica Smith again. This time it was the Belly, Buns & Thighs Walk for 40 minutes. Really worked up a sweat. Back on nights tonight. Off to bed for a nap. Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend.

I did it until the free trial ended and then I've been working on doing the skills that work. Trouble is I don't have a lot of time, so can't do everything every day.

I did Spark Coach but discovered I already had so much of that knowledge. Just working through things on my own. I think it is a good idea and benefits many.

Congratulations to you Leilawks1. Also, congratulations for your daughter's steps towards her goals. What school of ministry?

Anyone doing Spark Coach? I've been doing the trail and like it. Wondering what others experience is with it?

Hi Everyone!
Hope you are having an awesome summer.

I am working on getting my mind in a healthy "lose weight" mode the last few months. I ate a few emotions & just being plain lazy resulting in a 10 lb gain. The scales hit 200 again. That hit me hard so I am trying to get myself back on track to stop this ascending path. I can envision screeching brakes on the scales now to get the screeching brakes on my food.

Paula- Sometimes, I let the wind get to me where I don't want to go outside. It is ALWAYS windy here. So if I try to go walking, I get sandblasted. It can be 70s & sunny with patio chairs flying by. I tell my husb I love my house just want to move to a less windy area. He said if we stay & retire in So. Ca we are not moving. :( Personally, this is probably just an excuse not to go walking. Yet. I just have to drive to get to the windless gym, right? :)
Has anyone had a knee replacement? Dr is telling me I need one but am terrified the results will not be any better.

My 24 yr dau Marissa just graduated from Teen Challenge Induction. I am excited she stuck with the program. I am seeing a lot of growth. & she has been drug free for 4 months!! Now she goes into a less restrictive 8 more months. Excited to see what God has for this young woman.

What have you been up to?

Got my garden in. Now just praying the bugs & ground squirrel forget where it is.:)

I graduate today from the School of Ministry. This ole brain had to work hard. . . .Been a long time since I was in school.

Have a Great day!

I am. My depression kicks into high gear during the winter time and when the weather is cloudy. I have to use a therapy light to get through the dreary days, summer or winter. If I am depressed, then of course it is harder to get in my exercise. emoticon Take care and God bless, Deb

I hope that you all had a great Mother's Day. Just got back from the gym, walked about four miles on the treadmill. Now I just have to get in my videos for the day and I am done with exercising. Wishing you all a very productive and wonderful week. Deb emoticon

Rain all day here in western Iowa. I went out for a walk this morning before the rain started. I had to run to get back home. I was out 17 minutes but with the run back home I did over a mile. The lightening began flashing and with thunder. I was feeling a bit vulnerable out on a trail with trees and open country. But, it felt pretty good to run. I was running and then I had to cut back because of an injury. So, I'm trying to just stick with walking. I don't want another injury.

LEILAWKS1, congratulations on making your first painting class. That sounds exciting. I'm sorry that the weather did not cooperate with your gardening plans. Congratulations on losing 7 pounds. That is a wonderful accomplishment and you are very inspiring.

Today is day three of four babysitting my newest Grand son. I am looking forward to spending time with Hayden, who has just turned 3 months old. The weather here has been dismal - gray and rainy - for way too long. Today the weather is supposed to break and we are to kick off a few days of sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60's and 70's. I can't wait. I'd like to get a garden started at my son's house this week. I live in an apartment, but Sam has a raised bed in his yard that he isn't using so I will. Sending out positive energy and hugs to all that need them. I hope that you are all having a great week. Take care and God bless, Deb

I had such plans for today. I was going to work in my garden. Also plant some flowers. Temperature is great. But the winds. . . Insane! Patio furniture blowing around. I am so sick of the winds all the time.

I am ready to go discover other areas of the country.

So excited I get to go to my 1st painting class tonight. Yea!
.
My weight goal is to get as much off that I can by May 31, which is my graduation day. I totally did not look at the numbers on the scale for 3 weeks. Instead focused on food journaling with calories & portion control. Lost 7 pounds just doing that. :) Happy dancing!

Everyone have an awesome day.

I just finished a very motivational book. The title is "Over 50, Overweight and Out of Breath: A year of going from super fat to super fit" by Laura Sinclair.

She was 55 years old and broke her ankle. She used that as her starting point to lose 90 pounds and get in shape. Check it out.

Hi Everyone,

Wow Leilawks1, what an accomplishment!! Congratulations!!! That is a phenomenal achievement. I hope that you enjoyed your DGD's visit immensely.

Our weather here has mostly been very Spring like lately. We've had some really mild, sunny days and it has been great! However, the more Spring like rain for this area is back for the next few days. I will miss those sunny skies. Have a great week! Take care and God bless, Deb

Congrats Leilawks1- that is an AWESOME accomplishment! I'm so excited for you!

And so happy you get to spend some one on one time with your granddaughter- that should be lots of fun having her around.

I have slacked off on my tracking due to the cold weather. We had 3 ice storms in a two week period and I just got into a slump.

As of yesterday (Monday), I'm trying to get back on it- both with food tracking and exercise. I worked out in the yard for an hour yesterday digging up monkey grass and my back is feeling it today! But at least I feel like spring is finally on the way.

Hope everyone has a great day!
Kim

Eliminate excuses and avoid procrastination! Just Do It!

Blessings to you all,

Hi Everyone!

Hope life is treating you well.

I am so excited! I was honored in my TOPS group today for 1st place in my division for most weight lost for the year.

I have my hyper 6 yr old grandgirl staying with me for the week. She is definitely keeping me moving. We planted flowers & some veggies today. Her visit sure has helped with t he empty nest syndrome.

Cold here. And it's going to be cold for a while.

I've been dealing with a cold and not feeling good. I hope to go back to work tomorrow. I never miss work and today stayed home.

Valentine's Day this weekend and then March will be here before we know it. Spring is on it's way!

Hi Everyone!

Great to hear about your weight loss goals and progress. I have truly been slacking with my water intake. Focusing on improving that aspect of my healthy eating.

80 degrees here. Sounds goode, right? We can't even enjoy it with the wind gusts of 60 - 80. Mph. Suppose to last for 3 days.

Good thing I got my garden box prepped and fertilized yesterday. I am ready to start planting as soon as the wind dies down.

Adjusting to having a very quiet house. No more kids at home. I am a work in progress. .

Have a great day!

They are having snow storms all over the Midwest and the East, while we here in the Pacific Northwest are having an unseasonably warm winter. The local ski resorts are not even able to operate at full capacity this year. There are rocks and barren ground where the snow should be. We've had the precipitation that we need, just not the lower temperatures. For instance, we will have rain for basically the next seven days. Spring is on the way here for sure. Be safe when you are outdoors. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Good morning all and Happy Sunday emoticon

hi everyone emoticon

This is my progress so far...

11/10/14 = 277.0 lbs.
01/21/15 = 275.8 lbs.
01/23/15 = 278.2 lbs = 30-days until a 6-mo. follow-up Dr. appt. on 2/24/15
01/24/15 = 274.2 lbs
01/25/16 = 271.8 lbs HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? don't know for real.

Speaking for my own body = I believe my weight scale started moving DOWN because I changed the way I eat into small healthier choice meals, increased my protein intake and stopped eating tootsie rolls

AND got UP off my naturally lazy a-- and moved my body for a couple of days LOL.... seriously. shocking but true LOL

Looking forward to being part of this group. I've always struggled with documenting things and keeping track of progress. I really want it to be different this time. We are doing a Health Challenge at my job so I thought this would be a good supplement. Good luck to everyone! emoticon

I have a friend who did that. It was a pencil tree, so it stood in a corner of her living room. It was actually a neat idea.

I used to work with someone who literally left a tree (fake) up all year long. She just changed the decorations to suit the season or holidays.

Here Spring means cold and damp weather and some of our biggest snow storms. But, I like the promise of Spring. I'm leaving my Christmas tree up until about Ash Wednesday. We are enjoying the tree and lights so much that we don't want to take it down. I have gotten some Valentine decorations out to put on the tree with some Winter themed decorations I hadn't used yet. I enjoy Valentines because it seems like Spring is around the corner then.

Congrats on the goals! I love the new year or any new beginning. It's a chance to begin again.

Hopefully our weather is going to settle down for a while. This week has been a reminder that it's winter. Only about 70 days to Spring and I'm counting! I love the start of Spring!

Hi,

Leilawks1, congratulations on setting new goals and getting back to the gym.

Cindi, I'm sorry that the weather is so bad. Drive safely.

Things are still fairly mellow temperature wise, but the rain is coming back tomorrow. We've enjoyed some really windy, but sunny days here.

Hi Everyone!

My holidays were great with the exception of my free-for-all eating. Gained 10 lbs in 2 weeks. Hoping some of that is just water weight that will slide off.

My mini weight loss goal is to lose 10 lbs by Feb 20th. I now have my eating back on track. Started back going to the gym again.

Cindi, be careful with all the weather conditions.

We are having unseasonably warm weather for January here in the Pacific Northwest. I feel sorry for so much of the country and the wintry weather. It does make it easier to get outside and walk with the weather as warm as it is. We are really lucky. Take care and God bless, Deb

I had joined a challenge at my local rec center called Maintain, Don't Gain. Well the $25 I paid is most likely gone unless I get a good case of the stomach flu to get rid of the weight overnight. lol So, as of tomorrow, it will be move forward into 2015 and put my $25 behind me. emoticon

Hello! I'm new to the team and am glad to be here with you all. I've also enjoyed my holidays (maybe too much!) and am ready to get back on track and start eating healthy again! Tomorrow will be my first weigh in. I'm nervous but know I can't hide from myself. It shows in my clothes so there's no denying I've put some weight on! Not a sprint!!

I'm getting back on track tomorrow! The holidays were wonderful, but 2014 (work and health-wise) not so much. I'm excited about the New Year and going to chase my happiness by being proactively healthy! Happy New Year everyone!
