Oh Pat how absolutely frightening! That idiot could have burned your house down!!
What stories we all have to tell huh? I have a good plumbing one that now finally after 4 yrs DH will not laugh but I can get him to smile a bit...LOL..
We hired a "plumber" and I use the term loosely to re-pipe our house cause the hard water had damaged all of our pipes and we needed new ones...he finished..after leaving that solter stuff on the floor and carpet...still not sure how that happened..then we realized we had a leak...no plumber in sight..so we got a hold of a friend who is one, who by the way was to busy to get to us the first time around, and he crawled under the house and came out laughing!!..we had pipes running to no where under there..capped off and just there for no reason...even I have to laugh now about it and joke about our never ending pipes under the house but DH still gets a bit testy about those..LOL

I am pretty sure this job has made me NEVER want to hire a friend again!! or anyone else for that matter..DH and I will be the weekend remodeling warriors and that will be that...

OK...now to the really serious business at hand...
PUT THAT COOKIE DOWN DRAGONFLY AND STEP AWAY FROM IT!! RUN RUN THAT COOKIE WANTS TO GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR HIPS AND STAY THERE!!!

PEGGY~~QUIT GOING BACKWARDS...MOVE THAT BOOTY AND LOSE THAT BOOTY!!
(Hey..that might be a GREAT motivational cheer for us.."specially ME!!LOL)

Pat your going to have to be a bit harsher with these ladies! LOL
Ya'll know I am just kidding right..no harshness here on this highway...BUT..no cookies or Halloween candy either!!
Talk to all of you later and give the tempting treats to a childrens center or nursing home or homeless shelter if you have one in your area..get them OUT of your house!!

OK OK OK...so there's been a leader here missing in action...ME!!! I have been fledgling with this weight thing for 2 weeks now and am prob. at 220 but right now don't want to get on the scale!! So I'm going to really try this weekend to get back on track - it's the exercise - if I don't do it - that scale won't budge!

Welcome Dragonfly - glad you're travelling with us along this journey!!

Remodeling??? HMmmmmmm...well he started our bedroom the Sept after we got married (May2008) and we are NOW at the point of just trimwork to be done. It's 2 colors (blue/tannish brown) I love both colors separately but together -- ooo not so much at first!
It's been there for a year now so it's growing on me and we just have the baseboard and the chair railing around the beadboard to finish. (notice how I just said "we just have'...as if I have ANYTHING to do with it...I"m not a good painter or do-it-yourselfer so it is all him! We have hired people to do things and so far it's been good -- 3 trees trimmed, concrete patio poured, new garage roof, new gutters on house and garage, and a new kitchen door ...oh and yes a new laundry room door! So lots of projects done and yes lots of money SPENT! But he is well aware of his limitations and so that's what you do if you know you can't!!

DRAGONFLY that is what you need a positive attitude and remeber that today is a new day.


Joyce - we hired an electrician once because we needed to have a circuit breaker put in for the bathroom and laundry room we added. It cost us over a $1,000.00 and when my son went to turn on his bedroom light the whole room blew out. Had to take te electrician to court because he destroyed my sons tv, dvd player & 2 game systems. Turned out after we submitted receipts to replace the items, plus get the repairs done he owed us $500.00.

Ok since I am up so early I am going to get started on my exercise before everyone else wakes up. Have a great day.

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you are having a great day! How is everyone doing with Halloween candy?

I have been real good! I made my husband hide all the chocolate that he and the kids eat. The rest (smartees and dum dums) are out in a bowl, but they don't tempt me!

HOWEVER, I have some cookie dough that just came in as part of a school fundraiser and those have been kickin my butt late at night. Yesterday at work a coworker had brought in chocolate cupcakes and I managed 8 hours of avoiding them. Then I go home and break down and eat two cookies. I plugged them into Spark People this morning and almosgt cried when I saw the amount of calories and fat that set me back....500 calories!! For TWO cookies! Unbelievable!

Oh well, today is a new day and I am off to a great start! Next week I am going to start exercising to try to ramp up the weight loss.

AAHHHhhhh...the remodeling saga continues and now I have friends to commiserate with!!
Dragonfly glad to meet you and your story of the flooring sounds oddly familiar..OH that is cause that is the same sort of stuff that goes on at MY house!
Pat...does it NEVER end?? We have just been here 11 yrs..of course this house was built in the 1400's before Columbus discovered America...LOL

So these guys we hired are actually the first time my DH and I EVER hired anyone..we have always done all the projects ouselves but this was a new tub and moving some plumbing etc...NOW I know WHY I will NOT hire anyone again..I am pretty sure my carpet is ruined and the guy was using my husbands recliner as a saw horse..Honestly I think I am going to need to add bleach to my carpet cleaning machine cause it sure wont ruin it, shoot it might really help it!!

So...I NEED ya'll to hang in there with me and keep me going..cause I may run for the hills screaming!

Hi everyone! I just merged onto the interstate and am happy to be here. You guys sound lucky with your remolding tales. I have an upstairs room that needed the carpet ripped out and laminate put down. We had the laminate bought and it was "stored" on the floor in the room for over two years before my husband painted the room and installed it. That was a year ago and the room is STILL missing pieces of molding, seams where the carpet and laminate meet, and face plates on the sockets.

There are so many broken things around the house that need fixed and he just never gets to them... dishwasher, dryer, garage door opener.... Sorry, can you tell I get frustrated??

Hi Joyce I know what you mean about talking to yourself I belong to 2 other teams where I do the same thing. I just keep hoping someday someone will answer me, lol.

I know bathroom remodels are the worse (except maybe kitchen) I do not even get to have a contractor come in. My husband is a do it himself type of guy and off course that winds up being a weekend warrior because he works no less than 60 hours a week. I will have to say he gets done with one project and the next one is waiting. I to live in an older home and it is also a converted summer home so there is always something to do. I hope that get back to your bath room soon so that you can enjoy that new tub.

Pat I am not sure what has happened to the folks on this highway..no one is posting and no one is visiting despite e-mails and invites etc..so..I sorta talked to myself a lot and even answered my own questions..makes me look sorta crazy huh? Well if you doubted it before read my little narrative of our latest remodeling project and that should clear up any doubt you might have had! :0)


We are in the middle of remodeling the bathroom..just one more chapter of the on-going saga of this OLD OLD house..they tore everything out...finally did get the tub back in..the faucets are semi-in..the hot water heater is hooked back up..big hole in the wall...bigger hole in the floor...and they are gone...they will not be back for a few days..another job came up and good old Joyce and her DH won't mind waiting a bit will ya??
Why no..I just LOVE messes!!
To ice this cake with just the BEST icing..the window now has to be moved because the new tub and the surround are bigger than the ones they made back in the day and they put it up...the surround is in the window and the guy says to me..not much we can do there...HUH????? Yes you read that right..he is going to leave the tub surround sticking out into the window!! Soooo...my DH is going to remove the window..cut a new hole and move it..and what am I going to do you might ask??
I am going to go crazy..ever so slowly..and quietly..crazy!!!

I was wondering where everyone is? did everyone leave town will I was gone? I saw Shirley went to 220-ville, I am happy for her. I am still having trouble get the weight off and keeping it off. My puppy has been keeping me moving though we walk at least 4 miles everyday even in the rain..so I hope it stops soon. Well I need to take Bree for one last walk before bed so have a great night.

Well here it is Friday Oct 23rd..this month is passing by and soon the Thanksgiving meals will be here..are you prepared to make it through the gorge fest these have become? Instead of celebrations of family and having a good meal it has become a way to gorge yourself and see just how much you really can eat.
I feel stronger this year than I ever have that I am NOT going to do that. I will take my OWN low carb dessert..not plural either...and my own low carb dishes to where ever I go and then enjoy the meats and cheeses to my hearts and tummy's contentment.
The meal I cook at my house will be low carb for everyone..except for the rolls which I will pass on as I have my own low carb bread.
I am stronger in mind and I am more determined than ever to be in Onederland by New Years! I can and I will do this for myself and no one else!!

So..how is your resolve going as this holiday season approaches?

emoticon Here is some coffee for you Joyce. Sorry I couldn't really give you a cup.

I just wanted to stop by and Say Hi! I love the idea of the rest area and highway. We are all traveling toward our goals and sometimes we do need to take a rest along the way. One thing I'm trying to focus on lately is not the end outcome of a specific goal weight, but of doing those little things that help me live healthier. I tend to get stressed when I need to reach a specific weight by a certain time so I'm hoping this change of focus will help. Also, I'm happy to report that I'm officially out of the 230's, but just barely so I'm going to stay in touch with all of you for a while or until I get kicked out. :)

Hope everyone is having a fantastic day!
Hugs, Heidi

Glad you had a good time!!! I met with Jann today - we did breakfast, snack, walking, talking, walking, talking and then went to where her camping trailer was parked and got to see it -- so cool!!! Then she and her dh and I went to supper! (My dh was working!) and I just got home....lovely day. I'm picking up breakfast tomorrow and taking it out to them when they get up b/f they head home! Yep getting together with fellow sparkers is definitely a fun thing!!

All of my good intentions went right down the drain last night! We had company and they stayed until 8:30 then we had not had dinner so I had to fix something for us to eat and by the time all of that was done..bed time!
This is the sort of thing that aggravates me so..somethng or someone is ALWAYS getting in my way!!

What do ya'll do when this happens or does it happen to others too?

Oh Cindy..if you get to speeding DOWN the road..share those thoughts with those of us that are "creeping" along! Speeding is legal...like meme said..as long as it is DOWN!!

Ok knowing it is Friday and everyone likes to get out for the weekend..I am closing off this rest area and you may NOT stop here and REST..You MUST continue your journey down the road EVEN on the weekends...now..that does not mean you can't come by and say HI but don't think we are going to let you just pull in and park!!

Have a GREAT Friday and if you go out tonight..make WISE choices!!

The hardest part of my day used to be the evening. Now since I've conquered my evening munchie attacks, I seem to be getting them between lunch and dinner. Just about between 3-4:30!! Can't they just leave all together and leave me alone!!! Hmmm, wonder why I'm crawling along!!

The hardest part of my day is when I get home from work. That is where all of my food is and I am tired and if I sit down for just a minute then I set myself up for doing nothing else but sitting and thinking of food. If I will come home and fly right in and do house work and laundry etc..then I seem to be ok and will not try to find so many snacks, I can fix dinner and then collapse into bed afterward.

I would be glad it is Thursday if this was not court day. That means a constant parade of idiots and stupidity and people needing hand holding..and that is just the lawyers!...LOL

Everyone have a GREAT day and let's keep on moving even if it is at a turtle pace...I might change my weight ticker to a turtle...hmmmmm....

Well I"ll jump in here and be a hare as well!!!

Good morning!Glad to see you ladies were around and kicking ....is anyone else but me happy that today is Thurs and then that means tomorrow is FRIDAYYYY???

When is your hardest part of the day? I'm finding mine is while I"m at school!! I guess I feel 'stressed' and I do try to keep healthy things there (I have a microwave and fridge in my classroom) but I"m munching from them all day long!)
Yesterday it was mints and nuts!!Didn't go WAY over in my calorie range but enough to go 'no this isn't good!!' Think I Know the answer to that -- retire and get out of there! But that's not happening anytime soon so I'll have to go to plan B!!
How about the rest of you?

Thank you...

So..you feel like your moving slowly? I am old enough that I grew up on Bugs Bunny cartoons and I remember one where he races a tortoise...and Bugs loses of course..but I for sure feel like I am the SLOWEST PACED TURTLE in the world when it come to weight loss...I just keep telling myself
Slow and steady WINS the race!!

But just once for about a month or so..I sure would like to be Bugs Bunny!

Hi Teachin - thanks for noticing how hard Joyce worked on this interstate -- we'd talked and thought that this 'fit' the villes more appropriately than a town!! So WOO HOO TO JOYCE -- she's done great!!

Don't you hate when the road gets slow though?? I've yo-yoed so many times over these past 2 years that I should be wearing a neck brace!! Back and forth and back and forth...but you're here now, you're focused and moving on....so stick with it and you WILL get all the way down to the next ville!!!

I seem to be travelling really, really slowly even though I'm driving straight. Oh well, I guess if I just keep moving, even at a crawl, I will eventually get out of town!!!
BTW, Joyce, I agree that you have done a wonderful job here. I was only here a few days before, but I love what you've done!!

I made it through though...Today is a hair coloring and a fridge buying mission..Oh I so DO not look forward to moving the old one out and the new one in and all that lifting and tugging!!
I intend to get a big fridge though!! No more little ones!
I was wondering..does walking around Home Depot count for cardio???

Thank you very much! I appreciate the compliment more than you know!

I finally am able to come and visit today.
What a day what a day! lol

I get tired of the journey sometimes and want it to be a quick fix..I have yet to wake up and be thinner though...or find that miracle food that melts fat off in only a few days...
But I have learned that here..on Spark...I have friends that feel the same way and we can talk it out and move on with it! I am SO glad to have this place to come to for comfort, motivation,and sometimes nothing more than a swift kick in the pants!

Well it is 7 pm already and DH wants to eat dinner...these men..LOL

Talk to ya'll later!

I want to state here and now Joyce - you have done a wonderful job here - I love all the 'new stuff' and if we have more wanting to join us - great and if not - then they are the ones missing out --- so much thought provoking things here...don't know where to go next!!!

So I guess we can have a question in the rest area right?? -- Don't you all just LOVE the idea that this is a highway and not a town?? We are on a JOURNEY to get to wherever it is that each of us want to end up.....what is the best advice you have heard, read or been given (either on SP or elsewhere) about getting to where you want to be?


I think mine would be an article I read about priorities --
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat
io
n_articles.asp?id=264


I remember the day I started to make this journey a priority - oh yes I've lost focus many times and had to rethink what I wanted and where I was going but I have saved this article and it always brings me back....which is a good thing!

This is our new conversation thread. We can sit over here at the rest area tables and visit about the road and how our travels are going!
Don't get comfortable though!
This is for TRAVELING...NOT STAYING!
We are ALL moving on!
