I am not a red hatter, I only joined because my friend Linda invited me....

But I have also noticed it is not very active on the boards, and so I have also been thinking of leaving the team.....

Sorry Linda.....

Ladies,
This team seems to be having trouble getting off the ground. It became inactive when I
was on it before. There hasn't been much chatting after the first week this time around.
I have since joined the Sweet Tooth Challenge and I am signing up for a team on the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge.
And I am on a maintainers team as well. So I am not going to have time to post here, as I
will be too busy with those teams that will motivate me to shape up again.

Wishing you well.

Marilyn

Hi Mary!
Thanks for the encouragement. It is so easy to let our minds trick us into pretending things like reduced fat ice cream and sweets are OK because they are reduced fat. But they definitely set
up a cycle of craving, which I must admit I have fallen into. And then I have to deal with the
foolish thought that I am deprived if I don't have these things all the time. I have to spend
time reading the great motivational articles on SP.
Where is everybody?
Hope you are enjoying some time for some R & R, since it sounds like you have a lot of
responsibilities in your life. I guess that is the key, to treat ourselves in non-food ways.

Have a nice Sunday!

Marilyn

I am back from vacation, and I am not going to weigh myself today. We were away for vacation
and our anniversary. And my birthday is coming up Wed. We had a good time, but ate too much. We went to Bardstown KY for a few days, and then to the woods of Hocking Hills to stay
in a lovely cabin for our anniversary. I definitely need to readjust my eating and get back to my
exercise routines. It is so easy to get out of sync, but hard to get back on track. But I am starting my way back, because I hate the sluggish feeling overeating creates.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Marilyn! The city is restoring a railroad depot here too! I can't wait to see it.

I had a slow week, hitting the pool, working in my flowers and playing with my little Poodle. I My oldest girl Grandy will be 22 on the 5th! Hard to believe. I hope to get to see her.

Hope everyone has a sweet Sunday!

Hi Ladies!
It has been a busy week. I really enjoyed a birthday celebration with my new Red Hat group.
They meet every 2 months to celebrate birthdays in the 2 month span and call them Aging Days. I got to pick the restaurant this time.
Then DH and I went to a big celebration of the restoration of a historic railroad depot. We got a
fantastic private guided tour because we got there early.
Have a good one!

Hi Marilyn! Yep I have worked for lawyers almost my entire career, except for the 11 some years I was in the Army and then the few years that I was an iron work.

It was so nice today at the pool, with a good wind and only about 80 degrees, perfect weather. Then my friend and I went to Ross Dress for Less, Kmart, etc etc.

Now I'm ready for a nice glass of wine and my Poodle!

So I see we have 2 Linda's. How about Linda OH and Linda CAN to keep you straight?
My other team has 2 Marilyn's.
Linda CAN, I really like your positive attitude and your sense of humor. Nice Spark page!

Mary, I didn't know you used to work in a law office when you lived in Cincy. You have been
down south for so long it would be really hard to adjust to the cold again. I would love to go to
Cincy some time for the Flying Pig marathon. I don't run, but it is supposed to be a great place
to meet other SparkPeople.

Have a good one.

Hi Gals! I talked to Judy last night. She is still taking care of the Grandchildren. Diaper man is now potty trained and 4 years old! Hard to believe! She sounded well and I told her we were getting everyone back here in the club that we can. Maybe she will show up.

70's is what our lows are here Linda! It was almost 100 on Sunday, with a heat index way more than that so I laid low in the air condition and snuggled with my Poodle and read my book! Speaking of which, what is everyone reading this summer? Any favorites that stood out to you?

Marilyn, I lived in Cincinnati for a year so I know how cold it is up there (shiver). I couldn't wait to get back home to Alabama!! I can't take the cold. Now with the heat, it is so bad in the south that we have central air. There, just a window unit was all that was needed or supplied. and I can get cool in the pool (I'm a Poet! Giggle). But I couldn't just hibernate in that cold. I was working downtown in a law office so you know, I had to dress up. My earrings were the first to go because the metal got so cold in my ears it hurt! oh well, lets think about warm stuff! LOL

I sympathize with the heat you are getting, Mary and Cassie. It is usually hot in Ohio in July, but we are having some cooler days this summer, which is fine by me.

It has been quite awhile since this team was active before. I did reach my goal weight, but I
have gained some back. But I still try to eat healthy meals. I just eat too many sweets.

My hubby just retired a few weeks ago. It is nice having him home, but he needs to find some
hobbies. I retired 2 years ago, so I have lots of things I do and don't just sit home much, except when we have a bad winter like we did this past winter. It was rough. That is where I
picked up the sweets habit when I was stuck inside a lot. I did go out for a walk many of those
days. I only stayed in when it was 10 degrees or below or there was a windchill in that range.

Hard to believe July is almost over.

Hi Cassie!

Now I'm living in a two bedroom, two story town house. My Grandson is now the one living with me. I still have my beloved Poodle April.

It was so hot today even the water at the pool wasn't cool. We need some rain!!

Hey Classy, Sassy Redhatters,

I'm glad we are here and keeping the team going!! That's the Redhat way!!! Sisterhood and support. WooHoo!!!

The temps are hot here and it's very humid. Every afternnoon/evening we have been having rain. At least it keeps the grass growing!!!

Mary, enjoy the swim. Are you living in an apartment? I thought I remembered your son living with you, but that was so long ago, I can't remember. I'm sure y'all all have Queenly moments!!!

Marilyn, I'm glad I could offer encouragement! I know I need all I can get.

I hope everyone has a GREAT day!!!

Hi Gals!
I wrote a nice entry about how much I enjoy reading Red Hatters Matter, the quarterly news magazine. Unfortunately, something happened and it vanished into cyberspace.
Oh well...
Cassie, Thanks for the encouragement. I think my new chapter will work out somehow. It
may need to reinvent itself, but that's OK.
Hi Mary! Glad you're back. Hope you are doing OK.
Have a lovely day!

Hey again ladies,

Marilyn, the group we have now is wonderful!!!! A few years ago our group had about 20 members and I think it was just too big. We always had some kind of drama happening. Eventually, everything worked out, the drama people quit. Now our group gets along and we are all about Fun and Friendship. Most of our ladies participate.

Take care,

Hey Classy, Sassy Redhatters,

Hey Mary, I'm so glad to hear from you!!! Merry Christmas!!!! Every time I think of you I remember you sending me a Christmas present in June😃😃😃. I hope all is well with you and your family.

Marilyn, hang in there. We are here for you!!!

I don't know all the members of this team. When it was active before this time, we had 10-12 ladies that chatted daily, so I don't know when or how we got 83 members. I don't believe some of them are interested in coming here or being active on this team. Every member gets an email when anyone responds here. If they don't respond that's up to them.

Linda, thanks again for getting the team back on track and active!!!

Linda, if you scroll down the main team page, on the left there is an area that shows the most recently joined members. Just below that is a button to see all members.

If you click on that, you will see the names of all the members who have participated on the team (or even visited the team) in the last 30 days. Just above that is where you can sort members names from "oldest to newest", or "newest to oldest" and there is a little box that is set to the default setting of "show only last 30 days" If you unclick that box you should be able to see all the members of the team, even if they have not been around for awhile....

I hope this helps....

Hi Ladies!
Just stopping in for a minute to relax from a busy day. I have been deluged with texts and emails. A friend thought it would be a good idea to set up a group of about 12 friends to send mass texts. Also, if you respond to anyone, your response goes to everyone in the group. I found it to be overwhelming.

I have found that it is easy to spend way too much time on computers and cell phones and then
go into overload. This may keep some people away from this and other SP teams. I'm not sure what the answer is.

I am kind of bummed today because the queen of the red hat group I just joined is threatening
to disband due to lack of participation. I hope she changes her mind. She has a lot going on
right now, including getting her house ready to go on the market ASAP. I thought one of the
selling points of RHS events was so we could put our stresses aside for an afternoon or evening and enjoy our red hat sisters.

Cassie, Have you found a lower rate of participating in your group?

Marilyn

Hey Classy, Sassy Redhatters,

Linda, how are you doing with contacting our members? I'm sorry to say I don't know some of them. Once we disbanded or rather quit talking, we had other ladies that tried to get everyone's participatio, but it just didn't work. I'm not sure what happened but...everyone quit coming to talk. We tried different approaches, but nothing seemed to work. The only original member that comes to talk occasionally is Slimakins. I quit trying since I was here alone. I hope we can get some participation to keep the team open.

Thanks for stepping up to be co-leader. I really appreciate everything you are doing!!!

Marilyn, that's a shame about the mall we have 2 one good one bad. I wouldn't go walk in the one across town. The mall near my house is newer and safe. Lots of people walk in the mornings there. Lots of Fun for me and others!!!

Y'all all have a good day!!!

Hi Ladies!
I love walking, but I avoid the mall most of the time. My feet and knees are bothered by the hard flooring.
Also, we live near a mall that has just gone into receivership. I am hoping they can do something to attract more stores, but it is not a place I really enjoy going to.
Luckily there lots of other places to walk.

Hey Classy, Sassy Ladies,

Marilyn, that should have been The Blue Tea Room. I really do enjoy tea. It's a nice drive in the country for us. It's in a small town about an hour away from Baton Rouge.

I walk at least a mile or two a day. We don't really have trails or parks but the mall opens early and 3 times around into all the nooks is 1.5 miles. I try to get at least 4000 steps a day. I get over 3000 walking. That's my favorite form of exercise. The mall has a lot of people walking in the mornings so it's safe. I enjoy walking.

I have a collection of teapots too. I love Christmas and all the trimmings. We will have to share a pot of tea to celebrate!!!

Cassie, I'm glad you enjoy tea, too. And I really love all the beautiful teapots that you can find.
I have a teapot collection that is fun to change out depending on the season. My favorite ones
might just be the Christmas teapots. They help me enjoy the cold Decembers we have in Ohio.

I walk all kinds of places, both indoors and out. I don't waste time finding the perfect place to
walk, because I found that was just an excuse to postpone the walk. But I really enjoy hikng in
our beautiful parks.

Hey Classy, Sassy Ladies,

We don't have Miss Molly's tea room here. We either make tea ourselves or go to The Ue Tea Room. We love tea!!!

Marilyn, I have been eating out a lot this week too. Next week I plan to eat out a few days too but.... I'm trying not to overeat. It's hard!!

I don't swim, don't know how and don't want my hair to get wet sooo it's not for me. I walk or use DVDs or stationery bike. Sometimes I just walk in my house if I don't want to go to the mall.

I hope all is well with y'all!!!!

Hi Everybody!
Linda, Good job going swimming!
It seems like I have been doing mostly eating this week. Yesterday we took a trip to Grand River for fried oysters. They were yummy. Today I went out to lunch with my new red hat group for tea. Miss Molly's is a lovely Victorian tea room. I did pass on dessert this time.
So I ended up going out to lunch 5 times this week, and of course I have gained.
Time to get back on track.

Hi Everybody!
I agree that hugs are great--either as a reward for losing a few pounds, or as a way to show understanding and compassion.

Cassie, I hear you about not being motivated to exercise in the heat. However, I was able to
turn that around when I realized I really wanted to give myself a sticker for working out today.
So I put away my excuses and put an exercise DVD on. I love the energized feeling I get and
the adrenaline rush.
Thank goodness I managed to dodge the donuts this morning.
I went out to lunch with my red hatters today. We went to a nice place with a big deck
overlooking the river. I did splurge on dessert, since they had those little desserts in shot glasses.

Time to start supper.

Marilyn

Hi Cassie! I am excited about meeting new red hat ladies! I myself want to lose a few pounds (at a time). I know it is possible with eating out with the girls too! Most of the girls in my Red Hat group are thin! I take tips from them and want to share them with with us! If you already are thin super maybe my tips will help keep you there but most of us could at least lose 1 or 2 pounds.

Wishing you a Red Hat friend day (Thursday) with OA hugs

Hey Ladies,

I have gained 10 pounds and I'm trying to get rid of them. I'm not exercising as much now because it's just so hot. I can't get motivated since our trip to California. The weather was so nice there it was conducive to getting out and doing things. Here it's so hot and humid we hibernate all summer. I'm doing some walking but nothing like before.

My Redhat chapter celebrated our 10th anniversary in February. It was really nice. The theme was Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend, but Oo La La Shoes. We had so much fun wearing blingy shoes etc. Saturday we are going out to eat. Next month we are having a luau. It should be fun!!!!

Y'all all have a good evening. I will chat again later.

Hi Marrilyn. Red Hat groups do have their ups and downs. My "Misbehavin" Twisted Sisters" has 12 members, but at times 4 or 5 show up. Some have joined so many groups and find they ca't afford so much and quit. Being the Vice Queen, I try to make every meeting. This weekend s Queens council. We usually have 30 to 40 show up from all over the central CA. I love it to see so many that I don't see but every 3 months.

Good luck on the weight loss. Around here some one is always eating......it makes it hard.

Hi Ladies!
I have gained some of my weight back, but I am still focusing on it daily. My husband just
retired, so I have to make my exercise a priority each day, or I don't do it. He is finally
getting into a regular walking program, which he never managed while working.

Judy, Good luck on getting back on track. emoticon

I am still Red Hatting. My original chapter lost its charter for lack of supporting members. They are still a group, but I think they are losing their spark. I have not quit them, but have been able
to get to very few events.
I was lucky to find another chapter nearby to join. They are the Ruby Darlin's. Really enjoying
making some new friends.

Wishing everyone an energetic day!
Marilyn

Hi Ladies I really wish I could get going again. I have gained the 29 I lost with the team....really feeling blue. I get so busy with the kids (3 grandsons) I have a little trouble knowing which end is up. I am still Red Hatting some, but not as much as I use to. Also I am going to be a Great Grammy in September. Everybody is getting older but me!

I will try to lose a pound a week. That is my promise to you. Good luck everyone. I sure do miss our team! Judy
