Hi everyone,
My name is Brooksie and I'm an ol' sparker, but new to the team. I work as a massage therapist at a Christ based spa/salon and am the mother of two wonderful children, Hannah 5 and Noah 3.
I am starting to learn to love my body as is and not envy those skinny-ninnies I see all over the place. I have about 130lbs to loose and am hoping to get at least 50 off before my wedding next year.
I want to learn belly dancing and Zumba my way to my goals!
Today...I have cramps...oh how I hate T.O.M.

HEY ladies!!! Hope you all are doing ok. I know its been a while since I have been on here. Been really down, trying my best not to drive myself or my family crazy. I still havent heard about the job yet. But I have kept my mind busy planning for my family visit next month. I have been doing enough babysitting to burn at least 200 calories a day!!!

Have a great week everyone!!

Good evening ladies! I'm so sorry that I haven't been around much at all this past couple of weeks. I just started this past week, my new full time job working 10-6:30 pm and it completely exhausted me. Between working and taking care of the girls, I was just dead tired, so needless to say, I haven't really worked out. I have been drinking water a lot, especially at work since it can be strenuous and have watched my portions, but other than that, not too much.

I'm hoping to get in a few workouts this week since I am probably more adjusted to working now.

Let's see....I went on a date last night with, incidentaly, a guy from work who asked me out this past Friday. He seems like a pretty nice guy and I enjoyed dinner and the movie, actually looking forward to doing it again some time.

Well, I'm calling it a night, but I will check in again tomorrow after work at some point.

Oh, Robby, welcome to the group! I'm sure you'll love being a part of CC. =)

ROBBY-welcome and i hope you stop by often. CONGRATS on the weight loss!!!!!!!!!!!please feel free to share your journey with us i for one am interested in hearing it.any tips?

kt-glad th doc said it wasn't abnormal

as for me well i told trentons father off and his family and i feel good about it.even lost a pound from that--released the stress.i gained 5lbs but i figured out how to lose weight and keep it off.this is what i've found that works for me.limit my carbs(i can not have a sandwich for each meal),and just stop eating after 8 def no later than 9. do some form of cardio at least 30 minutes. so i'm looking forward to getting back to my 242 in no time.

have a good one SP

Hey ladies!
I took tonight off, didn't workout, at all. I woke up to some pretty tough leg cramps last night and felt like the muscles were bruised all day from it.
I've finally found my grove at work again, it feels good.
I gained a few pounds at the beginning of my new routine so e-mailed Doc .... he explained this was not abnormal and asked that I stay the course for at least 2 more weeks. I agreed. We will meet again in 2 weeks to discuss finds of thyroid test and next steps.
I found out yesterday that my step class is going to go from 30 minutes to 45 minutes, twice a week. I'm so excited!
Hope everyone else is doing fabulous and taking good care.

I have completed another day of interval training, it went much better. Recovery time didn't take as long either. Today I walked up to the gym and worked out and really enjoyed it!

Now my hubby and I are off to spend the afternoon with some great friends.

Enjoy!

Tracy-thats so sweet you make your daughter a basket!wish my mom made me one but i wont fault her(lol) since she helped with trentons basket.i usually have a quiet easter but i'm going to my cousin's(shes distant n bloodline but the only family we have here )so she invited us and were going...we're semi-close.we usally do holidays and get togethers with them.

Em-go you go you!glad you pampered yourself!you shoulda put that in the ME TIME thread :-)i've decided to give myself a homemade pedicure this morning since the lil one is sleep.what workout plan did your doc give you?i'm interested in maybe trying it.i don't know why but i love doing workouts or strict diets docs prescribe to ppl.i like the challenge.

Ashley-it's suppose to be mid 70s here and tomorrow almost 80!i'm so taking trenton on a stroll...maybe even all the way to the park this morning...at least before noon.

Alright with me...nothing new frustrated at weight since it's being stubborn but i'm trying to patient(not my strong point) i'm kinda nervous when the weather becomes nice that means bar-b-que and i have to work on self control. Also,the easter holiday is upon us which means HUGE family dinner another thing of self control(trying to fill up on veggies).Made Trentons easter basket and i have something to wear too so yayyy!(the real challenge is finding something i like and i did that this year)i'm giving myself a homemade pedi while the lil one is sleep. can't wait to enjoy this weather.

have a good one ladies!

Hi Everyone,

Hope this finds everyone healthy & happy!
I'm doing well. My hubby is back, he went to visit family & friends. I opted to stay back. I went to the spa for an entire day (9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) Yup, it was fabulous! Plus, it was all provided by gift certificates which I apparently hoard.
The new plan the Doc has me on is taking some getting used to - the workouts are now brutal! HA
The supplement regimen is going okay, just have to stay on course. I'll have a followup appointment with Doc in about 20 days to go over results from the Thyroid temp. test that I've been doing. That will be interesting, I'm curious to know what it all means.
Stay well and make it a great day!

Hey ladies, just checking in real quick while I have the chance. It's an absolutely gorgeous day outside, at least in the 70's. =) I'm thinking of putting Charis in the stroller and going for a walk with Liriel. I'm still feeling pretty bloated, just hoping to start TOM any second now.

So, who else forgot that Easter was this Sunday? I was making plans to go dancing until I realized that there wouldn't be any unless I go by myself since my friend, Heather will be out of town until Monday. So, unless I make back up plans, I'll be sitting here Saturday night with nothing to do.

Well, gotta go the girls are running around...will check in later.

Ashley-awww feel better soon!

tracy-sooooooooooo glad your back :-)i'm going to have to update my profile pic or put a blog with my son and i. i don't think sp has seen him since last summer lol.

nothing much for me...it's the morning,trenton is sleep so i get a couple of minutes of quiet begins before i'm off and running. did my squats&situps before i left the bedroom...makes it easier to do cardio later and those arm exercises while watching t.v. i'm at a plateu though i wish the scale would go down but i'm not complaining since it's not moving upward.

Good evening Curvey family, I'm feeling pretty tired tonight, so this is going to be short. Not sure what's going on with me lately. I know I screwed up my thyroid and antidepressants this past month, so I'm cramping bad, enough to make me think I'm starting TOM, but then nothing happens....it's very frustrating.

I haven't worked out since Friday, I'm trying to get some motivation to do something tonight. I'm feeling like a huge blob and HATE it. (sigh) I don't think I'm losing any weight, maybe inches and it's very frustrating. I've been drinking water like crazy, so maybe I'm retaining it now since I'm feeling bloated. (sigh) I don't know. I think I'm going to get on the total gym and do some crunches or something.

Well, I'm gonna go. Will check in and do personals later. Have a great evening!

~Ashley

Morning ladies! Another week full of new possibilities for us all. I'm choosing to look at it that way instead of being depressed about not being employed yet.

Cookie, here's hoping you get hired! I know it's not your dream job, but jobs are really hard to come by these days, so I would take advantage of the one you're offered. Who knows, you might even enjoy it. Do you get a discount? That would be a bonus too. =)

I'm just trying to wake my brain up this morning, feeling hungry so as soon as I'm done here will be finding some breakfast. I've been doing a pretty good job of making sure I eat daily again. I've been known to skip meals because I get distracted, but have been doing better eating small meals and snacking throughout the day. I did break down and drink some pop yesterday, but only one glass and that's all I even wanted, was happy to go back to my water. lol!

Well, Liriel's trying to go potty, so I'll talk to you later!

hugs to you all!

Hey ladies...how are you?? Hope u all had a good weekend.

Well I got a call from a friend of mine. She said her manager liked my application, and that i might get hired in. Not my first choice of course (its a clothing store and I have no fashion sense), but I need the cash. Right now I am babysitting for my cousins to make extra cash. The good news is they also give me gas on top of my pay since sometimes I have to go get him. So hopefully I can get out of the rut im in now. Even working out is taking a backseat, which I cant stand. But im gonna workout soon as my nephew stops watching Barney (he lives for it now).

Hope you all have a good week.

EMERALDEYES, sounds like you have been ultra busy. Good luck with the job search, it's a tough world out there. My husband is equally looking.

I'm doing okay. I started my new workout routine that my new doctor recommended. WOW,it is tougher than I imagined. Clearly my other workouts were NOT this intense. I'm up for the challenge though. I also started the first round of supplements to support my adrenal glands & total system. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will all be worth it.

Morning ladies! I'm sorry for not checking in much this week, it's been a busy time for me. Tuesday was the hearing for the child support for the divorce and I've been busy doing a lot of running to get paperwork together and job hunting. I didn't get the Hallmark job I interviewed for last week, bummer, but I just kept trying. There were a few places that I knew were hiring, so I picked up applications and had an interview already at one of them. It sounded like it could pan, but we'll see. Target who I worked for about five years back, I talked to one of the managers there and he said they are getting ready to hire for the summer, so I'm going to reapply again and see if I can't get back in there. It was a great place to work and some of my friends I worked with before are still there, so it would be great, not to mention that it's like two minutes away from where I'm living right now.

As far as the challenge, I haven't logged anything in like a week. I just don't always have the chance to get on here and do it. But, on the bright side, I've been working out regularly either on the total gym or
by doing pilates and eating the right portion sizes and drinking my water everyday, so there's something, right?

Cookie, I'm so sorry to hear about your Uncle's death. He might not have done a good thing in the end, but he was still someone you loved and people should respect that and not bad mouth him.

Loreal, girl....it was your birthday! If there's one day you should allow yourself some forgiveness for falling off the wagon, it's that one. Seriously, allow yourself that one day of indiscretions and move on, I'm sure by now you've made up for it or have at least tried. Hope it was a great day anyways for you.

KT, how's it going? Hope you are able to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

Well, big hugs ladies...talk to you later!

~Ashley

Update, I had my consultation with the new doctor - what an eye opening meeting it was. I put the details in a blog, if you're wondering what I found out and need to do next.
Based on that meeting I'm determined to ask two people for help with the workouts(I usually go these things alone). The two people will be my best girl & my hubby. IF they say yes to helping, I sure hope they follow through.
I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment, so much so, that I feel like I'm standing in the middle of the road not sure which way to go.

Thanks Loreal ....
I finally pulled the trigger and made the appointment with the new doctor aka The Guru. My first consultation with him is in 2 hours, I'll admit I'm a little anxious and curious. I supplied him with more than enough documentation to give him the big picture of my life. I just keep wondering if he REALLY will have the key to unlock the next door to my quest to being healthy. Time will tell. I'm open, willing and ready to change anything he wants me to change.
My hubby is still out of town, won't be back until Saturday night. The house is a complete mess, he really is the clean freak in the relationship. HA! I'll clean on Friday.
I am taking tomorrow & Friday off - a little me time is needed. Tomorrow I'm finally using two gift certificates at a spa. I'll be getting a 80 minute facial, 80 massage, 50 manicure and as much time as I want in the hot tub & pool. I'm so excited!

hey cookie,hope you feel better and hopefully the news with your uncle will go...they'll be another story ppl are talking about. just ignore all of them and focus on getting better

KT-this week were going strong!scale or no scale lets the way our clothes fit as something to measure ourselves by. i read somewhere every 10 or 15lbs we lose is dropping a pants size :-)

As for me--well i usually don't talk politics but i'm on cloud 9 with the health care plan can't stop smiling it's like i have an extra spring to my step. my lil guy is trying to stand on his own and he's teething so he's stomping on my last nerve. wasn't feeling that well yesterday but i'm good now. updated the challenge a lil late(sick day) but it's up now and i'm still ready to get this weight off. spring is officially here and that means summer is close and i'm DETERMINDED to be comfortable in my skin by the summer. my ultimate goal is to lose 40lbs by june 15.

Hey ladies. Hope you all are having a good weekend. Right now I am fighting a cold...BLAH!!! I hate being sick. I turn into an instant baby and have to be doted on. My poor boyfriend is being extra sweet and taking care of me. But it doesnt make the cold go away any faster.

I know my uncle killing that police officer was wrong and so uncalled for, but you should hear some of the things people are saying about him and our family. Even friends of mine (who initially didnt know we were related) were making some harsh comments about this whole situation. Im really tired of playing nice. I cant blame them for being upset because it was so unneccesary for that man to die, but we are hurting too. Im just too emotionally weak to be strong right now.

I feel your pain Loreal. I bought a new scale this morning (the other one just jumped around WAY too much) and it weighs me 4 lbs heavier. SIGH.
But my reaction was, go on a walk, a very long walk; which I did for 40 minutes outside. I seriously hate scales ... I'll continue to use the new scale, it gives an instant reading unlike the old one that seems to have ghost in it.
I have enjoyed my day off today! I am taking 2 days off next week as well. I've been needing a few days to myself.

Cookie, so glad you are having a better week!

I seem to be stuck in coming up with snack ideas. . . searching for new ideas that fit in with my all my "I can't eat that list aka the no-no list." BLAH. My search on Sparks is coming up with nothing new. I won't give up.

I scheduled my appointment with the specialist I was referred to, Dr. Kalish. I will consult with him on Wednesday, March 24. Now, I need to write down my list of questions for him.

Tomorrow I have the whole day off - YEAH!

Hey Ladies! I am having a better week now. The initial shock of my uncles death was a heavy blow. like something out of a movie. But I am doing better now. Just glad that Grammys funeral is over and I dont have to sit thru one for a while.

But on a good note I only gained 0.9 pounds while in Ohio. I thought it would be much more. Now I can kick it back into gear and get going on the 10-pound challenge.

Talk to ya soon.

Cookie, I'm thinking of you girl. You're family is experiencing a lot lately . . . stay strong and ask for help if you need it.

Things on my end are okay. I started a new challenge yesterday - I'm challenging myself to 28 days of work outs. I've put together a list of items to do on any given day, it went well yesterday. I used the stair climber machine at the gym (it's been awhile since I've been on that beast) and I can feel it today. The scale still isn't moving but that's no reason to not move myself.

Have a great day everyone!

Hey Ladies!! Hope you all are doing ok.

Well Im on the road back to georgia right now. Grammys funeral was beautiful and just hilarious (in a good way). We laughed more than we cried and just had a good time. I thought I would breakdown but i was so happy that she was at rest. Unfortunately all the food donated to the family was NOT DIET FRIENDLY!!! I just had the hardest time trying to stay with my portions when the food was soooooooo delicious. I mean can you say 6 different pound cakes, and jumbo peach cobbler.....I can go on and on. So I probably didnt lose any weight this weekend. HEHE!!

But there is a sad story. I was packing last night when we got a call that my uncle shot a police officer and then they shot him. Now this is my dads brother and I can NEVER imagine him doing something like this. My family is in such shock cuz we have always known my uncle to be a good person. I feel so bad for my dad cuz it happened right behind his house. He was just laying in the street dead. So please keep my other family in prayer as well. This is not going to be an easy funeral.

Good morning ladies!
Loreal, in case I don't get to say it later, Happy Birhday! I hope your party goes great and all your friends show up.

Cookie, so sorry to hear about the virus, they are terrible! Hope you have a good antivirus on your computer now.

This past week I didn't do too well on tracking or working out, but it's a new week and I plan on doing much better on it. Have made good choices so far for food and am getting ready to start drinking my water for the day.

Not being able to find a job has been stressing me out. I'm trying to not let it get me down, but I'm feeling like a burden on my mother financially and I don't like it. I'm not comfortable with her footing the bill for all my needs, so please keep your fingers crossed that I find a job TODAY!

(sigh)Have a headache today, think it's partly due to lack of caffeine, stress, partly due to my screwing up my thyroid meds this month. I'm getting back on track with that today as I can't afford to start getting the migraines back, it just can't happen.

Did I mention how my high school reunion is in July? Yep, 10 years and I'm determined to get in better shape by then. It's overwhelming knowing how much I have to do, I mean I was 17-18 the last time I saw all of those people, including my ex, who I'm super excited about the idea of seeing. I still have some major feelings for the guy and am curious as to what will happen with us if/when I do see him. Do you ladies really think that I can get in shape by then, even with a lazy thyroid? Aagh! lol!

Well, I have to go. I'm watching my niece along with my girls today, fun fun. Hope you all have a great day!

~Ashley

Hey, I'm just getting back on the site today. I've been sick with the dreaded e.coli, and incapable of doing much other than lay on the floor, and let my daughter crawl over me. I'm feeling much better today, though. I even managed to eat! Yay!

The older I get the wider the horizon seems...

Helloooooo everyone.
Loreal your bday party sounds fab and I'm glad you're doing it for yourself!

Last night I went to my 2nd belly dancing class. I feel like a fish out of water but enjoying it all the same. Some of those ladies can move in ways that just make my jaw drop and they love the skin their in. Talk about empowering! The teacher did tell me after class that I'm doing really well so that has given me the encouragement to continue.
Friend A was supposed to go with me last night but canceled, again. My hubby just shakes his head.

We are hosting a dinner party this weekend, I'm gearing up. I'm still a little twisted in the head about dessert but working it out. My no sugar commitment is proving to be a challenge when it comes to dessert. I love a challenge though so I'll work it out.

Thanks Cookie and Em for all the nice words. appreciate it. still not feeling back to myself but i can't wallow in self pity...i've got weight to lose and just need to start counting my blessings instead of my problems.((Thank GOD my God is a forgiving God.))

Well my bday is on wed(yes st,patty's day)and it's last minute but i've decided to throw myself a little party and hopefully people show up. it's nothing fancy.....well it's a club/bowling/pool table drinks type of place(kinda like a grown up chuckie cheese). i'm hoping to book this event soon i'm just waiting on a place to call me back and of course i wanna look good. not just the outfit but everything...my hair,eyes,weight just be comfortable in the skin i'm in. thats gonna be my present to myself this year.

Hey Ladies!! Hope your having a good week so far. Im having a SERIOUSLY sore one. These workouts are great for my body...but also torture. The extra weight makes even my easy workouts hard. But Im not complaining. See, I have to weigh myself daily on the wii fit. I had Zaxby's for dinner sat. and sun. and it showed on the scale...8 pounds (also bloat weight from my monthly visitor). THANK GOD it went back down to normal today. I kicked but yesturday as far as workouts go and even today I did really good. I hate that I have to miss the next Zumba class (for the funeral) but I cant wait to jump back in when I get home.

Im really feeling good today. Not upset at all about Grammy passing. I feel good. My mother is calm and is able to smile and be herself. My Mom (and Grandmother) are the true definition of Steel Magnolia's. I know only God can give them the strength they have(had). Gotta love my leading ladies!!!

Emerald-sorry the gurls are sick. And hopefully all will go well with Mr. Aaron. ;)

Loreal-hope your week picks up for you.

Alright Ladies...lets kick it up a notch!!!! UNLEASH THOSE CURVES!!!!

Good morning! I'm still feeling pretty congested, but think with a decongestant or sinus pill of some kind I'll feel better. I feel somewhat rested though as Charis once she did fall asleep on her own, was out the entire night! She did wake up around 6 or so to drink a bottle, but went straight back to sleep. woo hoo! Even Liriel stayed asleep all night long which was wonderful. =) I'm feeling more optimistic today, probably due to a good night's rest and the fact it's Tuesday (which doesn't really mean anything except that it's one day closer to Friday, right? lol)

Loreal, he's supposed to be paying $69/wk total for both girls, but hasn't been paying that since it hasn't been court ordered yet. Although he has been good about giving me money this past week, so I can't complain too much. I still need a job asap, but knowing that the girls will have what they need either through child support or help from friends/family takes a lot of pressure off. I don't know exactly what the rough time you're going through is all about, but if you ever wanna talk, I'm here, we all are, just remember that, okay? Love ya, hon!

Cookie, I love that movie although just about every time I watch it, I cry. Laughter through tears is a great way to endure life's ups and downs, I'll continue to keep you all in my thoughts/prayers this week.

If the weather is as nice as it was yesterday, I'll take the girls for a walk. It's just too nice to be indoor all day long.

My mom has a total gym work out machine, I did get on it and do some reps the other day, I'm thinking that maybe that's why I'm still so sore? I dunno...

So, my fortune this week said that a relationship I've been confused about in the past will move forward and clear things up for me, so I'm feeling hopeful it means my friend, Aaron. I still really like him and would love to see where things go with us, but I guess we'll just have to see.

Well, I'm off to eat some yogurt, have a great Tuesday!

~Ashley

Good evening Curvey Family, boy has it been a Monday. I took both girls to the doctor, Charis has an ear infection and both girls have a sinus cold thing going on which they have graciously given to me. oh joy! lol!

My child support hearing was continued until the 23rd, so that's more time I have to wait. Oh well, we're talking about setting up a legal contract in the mean time, so I get the money I need from the ex.

Both girls, by the way Liriel will be 3 next month (where does the time go?) and Charis is 10 months old fought with me to give them their medicine. I'm so glad it's bed time though, I need some quiet for myself, since I'm not feeling so hot either. Man, I'm sore today, like really sore in my abdominal region and thighs like I did a million lunges or something, can't quite figure it out to be honest. Oh, weighed myself at the doc office and it came out 240, so that's probably more realistic which sucks, but I guess the 3 pound or so difference from my weight a month ago means something. I dunno, I don't weigh myself regularly since we don't even own a scale at my mom's house, but I have noticed my jeans being bigger on me which is awesome! I'll take that as evidence of my recent weight/inches lost. I think with this sinus thing, cold, whatever, I'll lose some more since I really don't have much of an appetite.

Cookie, I'm glad to hear that you and your mom are handling things well. Big hugs to you again, hon! That's what we're here for. Zumba sounds like so much fun, there's an instructor I met who does classes in the area, but with money or the lack there of, I can't afford them. I still want to do a walk-in class to check it out, but it will have to wait. I'll have to live vicariously through your classes. lol!

Well, I'm off, have lots to do tonight while I have the chance. Have a good one!

~Ashley

Just want to say thanks to my Curvey Creations family. I was so blessed by the remarks on this thread and on my page. Funeral is next week in Ohio so road trip for me. Im kinda not looking forward to it cuz i sense there is some drama brewing amongst my relatives. Who knows why, but hopefully they can squash it long enough to get us thru the funeral. I doing ok and so is my mother. She has been in a good mood since the news (which is completely her style) so it makes it easier to cope with. There was a crying moment after the call that was like the funeeral scene out of Steel Magnolia's. It was really hilarious because my Mom and I acted it out with my niece being Weeza!! Laughter thru tears chicas, laughter thru tears!!! Thats the way my Grandmother was, thats the way I'll be.
