Welcome. Great article. That is one feisty woman.

Hey, Julia: Since most of us hang out on the boards, you might want to consider this as a new topic thread. It's a good one!

Julia, thanks for the post, but help the group a little by removing the "s" in the httpS: as SparkPeople cannot handle it in the link and it won't work otherwise.

Ryan, if you open up just the "Group Team Discussion Forum" main page, it will show you who the last one was who wrote on a particular topic with a time date stamp. I see in the general discussion one it was you who posted last, and it shows a time of around 11:30 AM today.

Does that help at all?

Welcome and please dive in anywhere!

okay, so i'm a newbie on this team and i'm not trying to make waves, but can someone please put stickies on the active threads? i want to participate, but i find it too difficult and time-consuming to search through the whole list of topics to find the ones that have recent posts.

Don't know if anyone here is on Instagram - but I "discovered" YiddesheMama cartoons - So funny!!

I don't know if you can see them on the website - it seems to prefer using the iOS or android apps.

And for today ...

I enjoy getting in exercise too. Although I do admit the extreme summer heat has put a damper on getting outside. I hope by the weekend my cold will have cleared up enough so i can get active again.

I hate summer colds!! I had to take a break from exercising -- once when I had a hysterectomy -- took a six week break, and I had foot surgery twice. I have learned to love exercise

Hi David
I hope you are feeling better soon!! Food is a big issue for me. Particularly junk food. I seem to be able to eat healthy balanced meals but I can't keep away from the junk in between (morning, afternoon and evening). For me that is my biggest struggle.

Hi. I have been here before and now I'm back and determined to reach my fitness goal.
At this moment I am recovering from an op on my shoulder. My arm is in a sling for the next 5 weeks and can't do much exercise. Next week I can begin taking walks out of my house.
I have been eating lots of rubbish foods, but this will change as of next week.

Oakdale, we ARE a very active team. We just prefer to hang out on the topic boards more. And lately ECOAGE has gotten the group active in engaging our Red Banner.

Please look for us elsewhere on SparkJews. You will find many of us active there. Feel free to jump in.

I heard about Elie Wiesel passed. I originally started a Spark Jewish group -- someone else started this group. I would like to see us getting this group talking about losing weight, being Jewish and how we can help each other

Not sure how to revive this forum. It depends on what this forum was originally for? On some of my teams I have a "Daily Chat/Kaffeeklatch/Water Cooker sort of living room or kitchen table kibitzing type topic, where people just come in an share whatever news, happiness, sadness, venting, questioning, sharing news or funny stuff.

But I was in services this afternoon (well yesterday since it is already after midnight in Kansas, but not yet asleep from all the noisy storms) when I saw news alerts coming in on the death of Elie Wiesel. I always meant to read his books but usually it was quotes in a magazine or newspaper that I would see.

Just read this article from NY Times:

Fortunately our house guest has gone from whence she came. It was a passing cloud.

Now we only have one person who does not pull his weight, is a lethargic lazy bum, listless and needy in every respect. Me.

I thought about this --- my goal is to lose 100 pounds so this is my proposal for a challenge:

1) to help each other stay on track food wise -- to stay within our own caloric guidelines.
2) eat less carbs and more fiber
3) report each week with a successful weight loss.
4) stay positive

I exercise 6 days a week at least 30 minutes a day for those days. have been doing that for 18 years now

I love the idea of having a point for each pound lost. or even 1/2 a pound. give back the point if you gain back. love it

For each day you do so (and its about duration), it's 1 pt per 30 minutes. Lose a point on a skip day.

Does that work?

Mark, NU, I'm in for a Monday morning weigh in, but where I'm really trying to find my way is in creating a regular exercise slot into my day. How would you build a challenge around that goal?

Wasn't preaching. Just suggesting.

I think us oldtimers are just suffering from "diet fatigue". We've just been at this far too long. But I do know one thing: If I weren't here, I would have gained it all back by now. So that is something.

Well here's a simple one. Practice what you preach. I'll start a thread if anyone likes it.

Weigh in every Monday morning. One point for every 10th of a pound lost. Subtract one for each tenth gained.

People on maintenance, though hated with every fiber of my being, can play too. Maybe like this: 10 points for right on the money, less 1 point for every 10th lost and less 2 points for every 10th gained.

First person to 10 points wins, and then we reset. Interest?

Gwyn, pick one small change. Work it until it becomes a habit. Spark picks up on those, and they will inform you of your "streak". Habits take about three to four weeks to build. Then it becomes second nature.

And above all, don't be so hard on yourself. We're all here for a reason.

Gwynn - what sort of challenge did you have in mind?

The all-water diet? Weigh zero? Stand sideways and cast no shadow?
