Sam- Alcohol Explained by William Porter looks very good! I like practical stuff.

I'm going to try to use up my goodie points. I did not have many when we got the shutdown goodbye announcement and I don't have many now.

I have joined a few things(FB groups + diet sites + sparkamerica)... but thinking of not. I am considering not using ANY social media or sites after Aug. 17

It is odd that if you join the sparkeamerica sparkamerica.com/ You cannot delete account. I mentioned that and a member here - don't know her told me how to delete my account here- yes you can do that - here but not there unless I guess you contact support. I am prob going to do that... hope tha tis not confusing- TBH I am not going to miss some of the know it alls here....


Cherie- I hope you get a good sleep tonight- so important! emoticon

Hi all!

I slept on the sofa last night,,,toss and turn a lot.Petes getting my scripts, they got the scripts mix up in what to eliminate, and what to help with my jitters. Thx for the healing vibes.

The alcohol experiement is a fantastic book, a real eyeopener!

Take care everyone!

Cherie

Hey eveyone!
Cheri-I hope you get to the bottom of your health issues. Sending healing vibes your way.

Bizi--maybe urn some anti-virus or anti-malware scans on your PC, could be a virus.

Em--yeah, ditto to the thought that I used to not start my day with social media, my how things have changed!

Helene posted(I think) about the book "alcohol explained" a few weeks back, well I read it and holy moly did it resonate with me--I see alcohol in a very different light--parts of the book I lalready believed before reading but the author really does a good job of laying out the "poison" that it is and how to beat it. Just wanted to throw that out there.

emoticon Bizi! Pizza sounds good!

I've been deleting my blogs and saving some stuff... I have joined myfitness pal and the alumni group but I probably won't stay on either of them.

I'm thinking it may be time to just take a big break from social media! Not that I am a heavy user lol-
But- I thought about kinda going back in time when I was younger there was no checking in on computer- I would just - Start The Day!

Well our computer seems to be running well right now

but still has its problems.
Don't know for sure what we will do????
like I used to have facebook be my home

page now it just goes back to the last page
that you were on.
sigh
got the supplies to shine my boat shoes
as they are really dirty looking. so I bought
some shoe polish and jeff found me a brush
to use to put on the polish and also a shoe
shine brush. So after the laundry was

finished and put away. I "shined" my suede
shoes they did not shine up very well and

they look darker and wet, not happy but

they no longer look dirty. Which is good.

I did not know how to store them so I just

wrapped them in the old t-shirt that I used

on the bed to protect the bed. and stuck

them in a corner of my closet.


I bought some of the summer shandy that I like
it is what I drink at fat pats.
it has a natural lemonade flavor, It is so refreshing.


We split a small pizza for dinner at pizza

artista right down the road from our house
it is kind of like a subway but it is pizza

and you go thru this line while you choose

the toppings and move down the line,

like the pizzas only take 4 minutes to cook

in a high heat oven. We had a supreme pizza,
it was delicious!


I had better finish up the computer keeps

crashing on us. It is like a memory problem

jeff added 2 memory cards a while ago.
Don't know what the problem is.

Hi!

We have a couple months to enjoy each other.I can be found on FB under Cheryl Edwards and message me.

have to see a neurologist for the shakes and jitteriness. Seeing my psych tomorrow. This has been horrible, can't sit, sleep, lay down. Meds aren't helping,,,,no appetite and I only lost 5 pounds! Need help soon....

On u tube there is a lot of videos from, the Naked MInd by Annie Grace to help with those that are still drinking and want to stop.

I hope I'll see you on FB.

ok- so I looked at the sparkamerica and it is filled with "upbeat" "inspirational" yadda yadda quotes and images.
- hey I mean if that floats your boat...

The recipes you can find ANYWHERE!!! I mean hey people we can find stuff for whatever way we want to eat. It is called Google! - or even other search engines. Podcasts...blogs too if you need online support/info-

I do hope we can stay in touch. I find Fakebook to be more about people promoting themselves or "staying positive" than being authentic....but it can be helpful for some. I keep my privacy settings on so people can't see friends. There is way too much info you can find out about complete strangers.

At some point I think the general public will realize close friends or family or possibly some type of online REAL conversation is more important than anything. Instead of all this coach nonsense and contests-and NOOM etc.. Honestly I think that stuff can bring people further away from being healthy.

That being in touch with your own body signals is better than a fitbit or strava.

A good shoulder to cry on will never grow old. And a friend who makes you laugh so hard your belly hurts.
Fortunately too -mental health specialists have come a long way- but shop carefully! A good primary can be great- but again shop carefully and avoid pill pushers.

Good food. Clean water and air. A sympathetic ear (that does not charge you money). A walk in nature. Yep. Time to go play!

Anyhow- I wanted to share that before the plug gets pulled...lately I have been feeling like Dorothy in the land of Oz. There is no place like home- I had what I needed all along.

Let's just keep it simple and be kind and take care of yourself and each other!

I am 7 pounds from my highest weight.
I am 195 right now. UGH!

I must do something about this.
Drinking alcohol is my downfall.

I had less then 2 beers after work at fat pats
and will try to limit it to that. and not
have hubby make me gin and tonics.
I have been having heart burn pretty

bad every night. truly lemonades,

sour beers I just can't drink those any more.

So I am crossing my fingers tonight

and will tell jeff my hubby that that is

what I want to do.
NO GIN AND TONICS!!!!!
.
I was manic about 10 years a go. And got down

to 122, I am 5 ' 7 "
thinking that I was going to try to get to 120.
5 years ago I was 135.
and I looked great bought smaller scrubs

felt great then I crashed after falling down

some brick stairs almost crushed the small

child that I had picked up. I turned to the side to protect her and broke my collar bone when I landed.....

It is just going to be sooo weird! Some are being positive about the new "platform" but it is basically a tool right now. I took a look again-

and- I would miss our SP friends who live outside of the USA. They either have to pretend- which means they can't be them and the IP address might tip off tech there anyhow.

I'm saving some of my blogs and deleting as I go. Not all at once- I have some time. Glad I was not a heavy blogger!

Pat!! I just emailed you. And what a healthy attitude!
After the shock wore off I realized that yes this could be a good thing. I have been here 11 years and I am not an SP success sotry- I was actually less than went up and now still a few pounds over.. and did get to the 140's at one point!
-so.. I know how to get to goal and it is time to do so- I don't need Sparks for that.... now I know it has worked for many so that is very good! I think they are competing with noom and etc..
I am not going to join the next platform as I too a little look see (undercover) an dit is tied to companies such as Vionic and health insurance etc.. well- we all have to pay the bills!!!
-but does not feel like a fit for me!

So! Time for me to do just do what I love (run-illustrate-play piano etc) the weight will come down.

Thanks again Pat for your perspective!!! emoticon

It is true, they are dismantling the SparkPeople platform. It's very sad but I feel like this is the Universe telling me it's time for a change. IF anyone wants to reach out, my contact info is: radiantme59@gmail.com

my Facebook is PatriciaHN (I'm tough to find on FB because of issues with my exhusband and his family and I have my profile page pretty tight. If you can't find me on FB, email me and I'll be sure to find you!)

Sorry, but if you friend me with a business profile I more than likely won't accept the friend request.

Best of luck and love and many Blessings to you all, Pat/BellaMemaw

Bizi- I think there has been something special about our little family here.

Helene has always welcomed anyone to her facebook page and it is private but not all of us want to and/ or for some none at all on FB and some do and have been part of the community there.

Anyhow- I am going to enjoy what I can here for the next 72 days lol.
oh and!
Get to or as close to goal before the doors shut! Ans so with that a nice long AF streak-
6/7- 8/17!

Happy June!!!

Bizi- 18..pairs.. I wonder why underpants are called pairs? Maybe because we have- a pair of legs? Do you get the pack ages of them?- I do that like 6 or more in one package- bonus buy kinda thing! Not sure about your colon- although if you use any kind of laxative your body will become dependent on it. Plus we need fiber and if you are doing low carb that can be hard to get in. I hope it can be resolved! Happy gut=happy life!

Jami - glad you are resting and healing!!!!

emoticon Helene!

well! - it is JUne!!!so soon!!!!..sing a happy tune.. fly a balloon (or not - maybe too much plastic in our world) emoticon Enjoy the new moon on June 10 and the Full on the 24th! emoticon moon! - what a sad strawberry!!!

I'm sorry but the posts of late make me chuckle - Bizi - when I saw you post I had 18 pairs of undies I had to scroll through to see how that came up. As for your irregularity - alcohol has a great effect on our system. I know I have IBS and diverticulitis flare ups - but they were much worse when I was drinking.

I'm very proud to sport my new tank top (I design many different ones if you ever want to have a peak - let me know and I can share the link).

What is wrong with my colon????
This morning a had constipation took a long time and much grunting to pass the stool hate that. then now 3;22pm I had almost diarrhea.I had had 2 cups of coffee and took a caffeine pill 200mg like usual.
I don't think I have ever had constipation and diarrhea 5 hours apart.
I still take twice a day 2 senna plus stool softeners(peri colace)plus 2 more colace(twice a day) and gummie fibers at night and the OTC glucommon 3 of those at noon. I did drink a lot yesterday so wonder if that had anything to do with it?????
So I am taking quite a lot of pills to keep going!!!!!!!!!
I had a left over Chicken sandwich for noon today, we are going to a cook out this evening well actually 5 pm. so we will leave in about an hour. I worked today seeing 2 clients. One with a bad toe nail infected toe, I took off more than half the nail i recommended taking her to a walk in clinic so they can prescribe antibiotics and cut off the remaining nail. that is beyond my scope of practice.
then the second client was a new one for me. I used my electric sander on her big toe nails to thin them. The family was happy with what I did.

Hi all!

Thx Bizi and Jami!

I bought some new shorts and undies this year. Tops too for summer. We are watching the baseball game, the Indys don't interest me either.

I have a big bruise on my chin! Looks like I got hit....LOL

Had scrambled eggs for brunch. Really not much appetite.....

Have a good Sunday!

Cherie

I was on a medication, with a side affect of weight gain. Doc said I can stop taking it. I,ve cleaned up my eating, am walking, I did this before, I can do this again!

glad that you got some sleep. keeps us posted,
sending healing thoughts and good intentions.
cherie you get some rest too. and find some yummy comfort food, macaroni and cheese?mash potatoes bob evans makes them and they are in the grocery store.

my house feels hot, I think it is just a hot flash.
Jeff is watching the INDY 500 car race.

It is already half over 200 laps , 500 miles.
I went one time and did not think it was any
fun watching in the stands.
Jeff loves it!
He remember when the snake pit was open

for patrons it was crazy!
when they closed the pit in the 80's it change
the feel. but Jeff said they have opened it up

again, not the same craziness like before.


I am going shopping as soon as I am done

writing this post. I need new undies and maybe some new shorts.

Hi all!

Glad your feeling better Jami!

I had my teeth extracted yesterday, sore and swollen. Ate Ramen noodles.... and yogurt. Took a nap earlier. It is taking a lot out of me.

For those that are trying to stay AF, keep trying and reach out for help! I did!

Have a nice weekend!

Good morning everyone. I had emergency surgery Sunday night for a gangrenous appendix and fortunately they got it our before it ruptured. That would have been a life threatening situation and a lucky. Recovering at home and will have to get the colonoscopy in a month. They did send the appendix for pathology and will get that in a few weeks. I am still confident its not cancer just a really rotten appendix. Thank you so very much for all the well wishes.

Sam- one tool I am going to try is to channel my inner Sheldon Cooper! lol
youtube.com/watch?v=z9btzic9qHc

- I know what you mean about not going overboard- and that is good! And so when I do I figure enjoy and then so sometimes I don't want to give it any attention. Meaning to count days /make promises. BUT- need to eliminate those calories.

I am just going to stay busy right now. Plenty of things to do!

- maybe it is a time of day?- I know for me 4:00 can be. It is like I think tea emoticon time and that turns into martini/beer/ drink time! I found taking a walk really helps me- then I get the dinner on and forget about it.
