Hey Jen & Yvonne, I've started a new Getting Unsweet thread , it's on a new team site. I would love for you both to join the new team I started called For Anyone & Everyone. Most everyone on the team follows the WW's plan. I will also see you both an invitation.

I am not a huge sports fan either, but I let the tv drone on for my hubby and I knit in peace lol!

I used to just love kitchen gadgets, but now I guess I am streamlining more. I know once I find those few recipes that are just perfect in this insta pot I will love it more than fear it.....baby steps!

It's not about what you can't do. It's all about what you can do. Never ever give up!

Hello ladies!
Not sure if it was due to the weather or just because we have a lousy internet provider, lol, but I wasn't able to get online for quite a few days here.
We had a three day weekend here because of the holiday but there ended up being no school on Friday because of winter storm Harper (ice and snow) and we are now out today too because of winter storm Indra (more ice and snow). And the temps are subzero with the windchills. So nice of the weather to give us a day off on BOTH ends of the long weekend emoticon But the roads were fine for Brocky day on Sunday so it's all good emoticon

I'm so glad to hear your shower is almost done, JOAN. I know it will be so nice for you to get back to your own surroundings. Happy that your recovery is going well and pray that things continue to be smooth sailing for you emoticon

Glad you made it to where you were going and back, YVONNE. I am not a fan of long car trips but at least it wasn't too long for you emoticon I wouldn't mind living somewhere that was a little milder for winter but I DO like the snow and don't mind the cold too much if we could just do away with the ice part I'd be good.

emoticon JANE! I have an Instant Pot and an air fryer but don't use either one too much, lol, pretty much because I'm afraid of the pot and the air fryer seems like 'just an extra appliance'. I'm sure both of them would be great if I'd just use them more I just need to get brave and a little adventurous emoticon

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and stay safe and warm with the weather!
Love and prayers!
Jen

I'm so not a sports fan. When my DH was alive we would watch golf or tennis but not all day long.
Cold here this morning, no school here due to the country roads are iced over.

Walk in shower just needs to have the trim out around it and that will be done.

I can relate to Football and MORE football. LOL
FB has groups that talk about and share recipes that they have tried.
You have to Join, then the Admin accepts you if you follow the rules.

We took a road trip for picking up my GD with DD, so I was in a car for 5 hours.
tomorrow I will hit the gym for Zumba Gold class.
ok off to make dinner, light for me, and ? for DH.

It is cold here in Beaver Dam, it only made it to 24 today. Trust me for here that's cold.
Shower installing going well, the guy told my sister & brother-in-law he should be done by Monday or Tuesday.

Yvonne, can't wait to try some of those recipes.

Jenn hope the weather is not too bad where you are.

Hope everyone has a good week ahead, and just remember each day we are closer to Spring.

Oh my thank you for that site! I think my hubby would love that recipe! I will have to check it out. Today is football.....more football....topped with more football lol. I did get to the gym and church. I also checked in on my grandcat because my son and his girl are vacationing in CA for the week. I am ready to hunker down in a sweater and my yarn and a cup of tea!

Happy Sunday!

This is an instant++ Pot recipe++ I shared, when you go on it, you can sign up to receive recipes and videos that help. Think he is on FB also, and there are a few Groups for Instant Pot AND Airfryer recipes and hits and questions.

Great news JOAN, I am sure you will be home before you know it, glad all is going so well for you.

Way behind to catch up but have a good Sunday and be safe, so many are being hit with so much Snow.
not where I live Yet hope it stays that way for a while, we can have snow as late as April, so we will see.
Its suppose to be a mild winter for us so maybe minimal snow for us.

Hey JaneT., So glad you found out little group.

Just wanted to pop in a tell/ask everyone to be safe this weekend. Even if you don't have snow it sounds as if the temps are going to bottom out. Jenn, I'll be praying for you since I know tomorrow's Brockie's day.

I have a shower update. Very excited the guy started on it today and my sister Ruthann and her hubby Terry went up to see how things were going and Ruthann took pictures, it's going to be so great. I've lived being here, but I'm so ready to be at my house around my own things.

Love,
Joan

So good to hear of your wonderful progress Joan! You are determined!

I was given an insta pot for Christmas and I have not used it yet. Partly out of fear and partly out of not wanting to take the time to read up on it. I need a good cheat sheet I guess, but I hear they are wonderful. The air fryer sounds delicious!

It's not about what you can't do. It's all about what you can do. Never ever give up!

Yvonne, thanks for the ideas. My sister and I did make chicken wings in the air fryer on Thursday for lunch, they were really good. I just get the pot stickers would be amazing.

Went to see the surgeon this morning. It's been five weeks since my surgery and he was truly amazed at how well I'm doing. I do have to stay only 50% weight bearing for another, and I have to stay with the walker a bit longer. As far as driving he said I have to build that leg muscle up and the best way to do that will be walking, and he said to wait until next Friday before I put all my weight on that leg. I go back to see him in six weeks and he told my sister, " she can drive herself up here then. "

Jenn, hope your doing well and good this Winter storm is not too bad where you live.

Love,
Joan

Question
Why can't my WW food tracking show up on my spark tracking??
I thought a while back it did, or maybe it was my fitbit and Sparks were connected and not WW??

Bison burger patty x3 from 1 lb package

Turkey breast rolled, it was ok, I am really not a big fan of rolled breast meat. maybe I just don't really care that much about Turkey?
I would use the Instant Pot next time, per my sons advice.
It was good, just not a favorite.

Chicken thighs, x4 soaked in Garlic salad dressing 1/2 hour,

Russet potatoes, FRIES, x2 sliced up, it was about little over 1 lb of potato.
10 oz and 9 oz made them in two batches, I think I could have cooked them all at once.

Soaked for 1/2 hour sliced and Dried before oiling a bit and cooking.
Next time I will soak for an hour.
really tasted good.


Thinking I will do Pot stickers tonight, my son swears by them :)


He also loves to do Chicken wings.


I need to try a Yam for fries also.

They say You-tube is an excellent way to learn some tips.

I prewarmed this time for the bison burgers, about 3 min.

I would check next time at about 13 min I Also, flipped them halfway through.
It didn't tell me too but I wanted to.

I also would use my WW scale to make them uniform, the thinner one cooked well down, the other too a bit more juicy.
Still were Good :)

Jenn,
I keep putting off making an appt. with the Chiropractor....my bad.
I know I have osteopenia? In my knees and left hip. Just hope its not getting worse.
I Know a lot of my pains are from working out.
I find when I over do in Zumba that I suffer some inflammation.
But I love to dance and do exercise.
I want to do it all, except Squats....
Do you love PiYo??
I should try it again, it was years ago but that takes a STRONG Core, right?

Be careful with shoveling snow, that is indeed hard work.
Its so cold here I wouldn't be surprised if we got Snow soon, we are at 500 feet level.

opps gotta run DH needs my Help.

Wishing you good report with the check up JOAN.
I passed the into to my niece.

Super busy day, need to track my food and coffee.
trying hard to track.

Love trying new recipes on my airfryer, its pretty neat.
I am still intimidated with the Instant Pot with the pressure thing.
But I will get there.

Hi Kentuckywoman! Actually I am the new team leader for this group. I joined this team last year after being with WW off and on for several months thinking I could find a lot of comraderie, support, and tips. But it truthfully was not very active throughout the page. Only in a few threads that I had to look for.

When I checked back in December, there had been no activity (read posts) from the three team leaders who were listed under the administrators of the team. I am not trying to change everything, just attempting to infuse the page with more overall activity, tips, tricks, etc. That’s what a team leader/administrator does.

The page was listed as inactive and the leaders inactive due to not posting for 60 plus days so I requested to be administrator. When I came back a few weeks later I’d been made admin. There are a few people who are interested in sharing more WW stories, tips, etc.

I commended you, Janetris and Icecub when I first came back in because I did see y’all were actively participating on specific threads and sometimes posting to the wall. I am not trying to step on anyone’s toes, as I first commented. If this team (not necessarily the thread) is not particularly about actively promoting Weight Watchers utilization and how to have a healthier lifestyle using that, incorporating SP as well, then I suppose another WW team is in order. Which is totally cool! There is always something for everyone here at SparkPeople. That’s why I’ve stayed a member for so long.

Thank you for the welcome and words. I wish you well. (And still loved Y’s graphic emoticon )

2019 is our year! ;)

Hello ladies!
Another week got away, lol!
I'm so happy to hear you are continuing to do well, JOAN, and I pray that they get the shower going ASAP. So frustrating dealing with contractors and plumbers and the like :/

Hope you get your hip figured out, YVONNE hopefully the chiro can help you out with it. I know mine likes to not cooperate every once in awhile too and it usually has something to do with my activities.

Speaking of activities I've been watching my PiYo and think I'm ready to actually start doing it tomorrow. It still looks doable and fun so hopefully it will perk up my activity routine. Also got some extra activity with some snow shoveling this past weekend. Ended up with 3 inches of snow Friday night and we're supposed to get another 1-3 this Friday. Sure did give my back and shoulders a good workout!!

I hope you ladies have a wonderful week!

Love and prayers!
Jen

Yvonne, mine was done the old fashioned way, no robots. I do know recovery time is much quicker if they go in through the inside of the thigh. Mine have all been done on the side so the healing time takes longer.
Tell him to make sure they do not put in metal on metal parts. That can cause problems from the start. That is what my first hips were and the very next year had to have revisions. The main thing after surgery and I'm sure he knows this, is do all the therapy.

Are you home? Or at Ruthann's?
My neices hubby is going to have an old fashion hip replacement.

Any tips or questions he should as would be Helpful...............

I have only known a few people and seems they did great after surgery.
one lady was in Yoga, and had it fixed x amount of weeks ago.
I was blown away.
I need to find out whats going on with my Hip/back. left side is off and on acting up.
Something I may do at the Gym.
I am suppose to go to a Chiropractor and I know they will take xrays .

Hi Kim, I'm Joan, aka "Kentuckywoman.". I began this thread many years ago and there have never been more than four of us at one time posting. I'm wondering why you want to start changing things. This is an open thread, there is no administrator we are free to post whatever and whenever we want. Your more than welcomed to join in, but let's just leave this thread like it is, no frills, and no bosses. Thank you.

Yvonne & Jenn, we are getting rain this morning. Yesterday we woke to a dusting of snow and I really glad it didn't amount to much. I go back to see the surgeon this Friday. Ruthann & I will go up Thursday afternoon. I think the hip is really doing good. The shower is still not in yet. The landlord's have approved it, but they want to meet and talk with the installer and I totally understand that, but it's getting the installer to return phone calls is maddening. So keep me in your prayers.
Here's to a great week.

Love,
Joan

YJana, hi! I love your graphic for steps to a positive new year. Do you mind if I put that as the team image? I'd love to give a visual reminder of how to work our fitness journey, both physically, mentally, and spiritually through WW and our other healthful practices.

Thank you!

Joan, thats Awesome news. I am glad your doing so well.
Doing the spark Challenge, made my time 60 min a day, that means either 2 classes
or 1 class and treadmill or elliptical to reach 60 min.

Have you seen it on the Start page?
Make your own.

Do either of you have copies of wrist Physical Therapy exercises?

A friend needs to do them post surgery.
she has a plate in her wrist :(
can't afford the PT.

Good morning from Kentucky Ladies.
The home heal t OF person saw me in Monday and was so impressed with how well I'm doing discharged me. She said , "I need to see people that actually need guidance.". I do my exercises like I'm suppose too and I do know when people are left on their own to do exercise they won't do them. For me I want to be able to keep moving g forward, and that means you g my part.

Jenn, I totally agree on watching the videos and getting more comfortable before jumping into it. Learning as much as you can will make it less likely you'll do something to hurt yourself.

Yvonne, my sister does the chair yoga at her gym, and she loves it. I did about five weeks of chair yoga at one time and I also enjoyed it.
Enjoy lunch out with your friend.

Love,
Joan

Jen, Youtube has lots of exercises too.
you can pick one you like and watch more by that person.
I love Gentle yoga, its slower and they offer more suggestions for beginners learning or that need a modified position.

Tomorrow is WED so its my Yoga class.
then lunch with a friend for her B-day.

Joan, so glad to hear your doing so well.
I know it takes time to recover and people get anxious to do too much, too soon.
enjoy your mini vacation with your Sis. I am sure she loves having you with her.

Have a great day tomorrow. Stay warm. Its miserable here, and the gray days are starting to get to me.

Hello ladies!
I hope you are doing better and better day by day, JOAN :) I am SO happy to hear that your landlord approved the walk in shower! That is wonderful news!!!
Hope all is well with you too, YVONNE :)
I did get the PiYo dvds in the mail and I've watched several of them but I think I'm going to take the first couple of weeks just familiarizing myself with the basic moves before I do the actual programs/workouts. I've never done either pilates OR yoga before so there's a lot to learn before I go all out with the intensity. Very excited and hopeful about the program overall though :)
Just thought I'd share with you ladies that I put in an application to be a wellness guide for WW. I am set up for a phone interview tomorrow. I'll keep you posted about how that all plays out :)
Hope you both have a wonderful week!
Love and prayers!
Jen

Hi Yvonne, I’m actually doing really well. Each day I’m getting stronger and I’ve been off the pain meds for two days now which is wonderful in itself.
Can’t remembered if I shared with you about the walk in shower. Well the landlord has approved having it put in and even though they have an estimate the brother wants to meet with the installer to make sure everyone is on the same page. So waiting for that to happen.
Hope your New Year is going well so far.
Love,
Joan

Jenn, I’m so happy that you will be checking in with Yvonne and me. I have a friend that got the same Pilates/yoga thing you are talking about and she loves it. So hoping you will enjoy it as well.

Yvonne, great you’ve set some goals my goal right now is just not to go crazy eating my sister’s cooking .

I slept so well last night. The home health nurse comes today and then Friday the PT people will come. Busy couple of days.

Love,
Joan

Hello ladies!
I hope your New Year has gotten off to a great start! Our internet provider has been spotty again so I've decided to quit most things computer so will be keeping my SparkPeople account open only for this thread just can't leave you girls emoticon emoticon

I'm so happy to hear that you've passed rehab and will be with your sister for a bit, JOAN emoticon I hope you're doing well with your allowed but limited mobility and pray that the whole recovery process goes smoothly for you!

Good luck with your goals, YVONNE, it sounds like you're off to a great start! I have been tracking on the WW app every single day since they came out with the Wellness Wins points and have been doing pretty good with that. I was hovering around 147-148 before that and now I've settled around 146 for the past month so maybe I can keep that steady downward creep going. Hope tracking helps you too!

I stepped WAY outside my comfort zone and ordered PIYO (a combination of Pilates and Yoga by Chalene Johnson it's a Beachbody program) so we'll see how that works out, lol. I've had my eye on it for over a year and decided to just get it with my Christmas money this year. Still waiting for it to be delivered but I'll let you know how it goes once I get going with it.

I've seen Cox trucks all around the neighborhood this past week so hopefully they're working on their issues and getting things fixed so I can get in here more often (fingers crossed!).

Love and prayers to you my dear friends!
Jen

Oh good, thats a relief. Please don't push yourself too fast. Stay longer if you can. Its always easier on being at someones house so they can do their own thing, but yet your being watched for. Plus have help getting around.
I have been helping friends that need assistance for the worst part of the recovery.
Sometimes we all need those Angels that are there for us :)
Good to hear from you. emoticon

I'll be getting released on Wednesday. It will be nice to get a change of scenery. I woke with a bit of a sore throat this morning. The doctor has given me permission to put 50% more weight on the right side.

Happy New Year ladies.

Love,
Joan

maybe a bread board or piece of plywood to give the feet stability if the concern is going through. You should be able to get a help with personal things. They send out a caretaker to take vitals and eventually PT. to walk.

I would call the company and ask them? Then you won't have to improvise.
Thinking of you often, take care. emoticon

Thanks Yvonne, for the links. In rehab we've talked about the shower bench but the problem with that is my bathtub is like an insert type thing and I fear the bottom of the tub where the legs of this bench would have to sit it might like a hole in the bottom of the shower.

I see the surgeon today, so it will be good to hear what he had to say about my progress.

My WiFi here has been iffy and this morning I got a connection so thought I'd make good use of it.

Hope you both are well.

Love,
JOan

This is a bit more spendy, but this is the idea.

This I think includes the shower hand help and something else.

They have similar for less.

Copy & Paste in Search Google and watch the Video

it slides over and you lift the leg up and over the edge.

you will have to put this in google to see.

You will be able to use HOme care for several weeks for help with showers and other things

Hi girls
JOan so glad you are back on here. I was missing your post.

They make a seat that slides to get over the edge of the tub, and you may need the landlord to put in a hand held nozzle.
maybe your sis can help hold the water hose while you wash up.
then rinse you off. I did that with my sis when she needed help.
Walk in is nice but if its temporary then the chair slide works well. With help to keep the water in.
I will see what the brand was called, Walmart sells them, or buy online.

Jenn, sounds like your Christmas was perfect.
I feel like I have eaten too much in the last few days.
glad your Gift was a happy surprise. Did you take a picture of it??

Praying all goes well for you both and will be back in a day or two.
my computer had me locked out, had to try a different way to get in.
I have so many problems with passwords. :(

Hello ladies!

JOAN!!! SO happy to hear from you! Glad to hear that you're doing ok and I hope and pray, pray, pray that your rehab and recovery goes as smoothly as possible and that the next 12 weeks go quickly and find you doing and moving much better :) I will also certainly pray that your landlord will do everything in his power to make that step in shower happen for you. Hope you have a good Christmas too, of course!

Yesterday we had my dad and brother and my sister and her family over for gift exchanging and some finger food snacking before I went out to get Brocky and then my in-laws were over while Brocky was here. So nice to visit with everybody and today is just us so we'll have some fun times together :) And my dad LOVED the John Wayne puzzle we did for him yay!

YVONNE I hope your last week of holiday prepping has been going well and that you have some wonderful visiting with your family!

I pray all of God's blessings to you both, hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and finish off the year in good spirits and health!

Love always
Jen

Hey Jenn & Yvonne,
Sorry it’s taken me so long to check in but the surgery was a bigger deal than I expected, but I’m good. I’m in rehab have been since last Thursday. I’m actually doing great but still cannot put weight on that right side yet. Could be as long as 12 weeks. The surgeon asked my sister’s about my house and I have a tub/shower . The surgeon told my sister’s that no way should I be climbing over a tub. So I’ve approached my landlord and my sisters are getting some estimates so pray that the landlord will see it my way.
Keep those prayers coming. Hope you both have a very Merry Christmas.

Wishing you both a very Merry Christmas and hope to hear from Joan soon.
I know being on the pc is the last thing one thinks of when medical things are upon us.

We are having high winds and lights flickering so will send this off. Will try and be here a couple times before Christmas.

Hello ladies!

I hope all is well with your recovery, JOAN been praying for you off and on throughout the days. Hope you're not having too much pain and getting back to moving slowly but surely :)

Glad they found and fixed that serpentine belt, YVONNE that's the one that weaves in and all around the engine so it's definitely a very important part! Your Zumba performance actually sounds kind of cool how fun to be able to participate in something like that (tutu and all)! I hear you about the step counts with different activities so frustrating! My goal is 10,000 steps and I almost always make it but my stationary bike doesn't give me many 'steps'.
I'm sorry you're a little down with thoughts of your sister. The first year of firsts they say is the hardest but it really doesn't get any easier I'm finding. December 6th was two years since my mom passed and I still wanted to call her and set up our family get together.
Good luck getting your shopping done I heard it's hitting crunch time for online shopping to get things shipped on time. I do feel sorry for those poor mailmen/fedex/ups people bet they'll be super happy a week from now, lol.
I got a good chunk of my wrapping done today and hope to finish it up in the next day or two. Then it's housecleaning for the family get together on Sunday and after that it'll just be us and time for relaxing with the family for about a week and a half :)

Hope you both have a wonderful rest of the week and a great weekend. Hopefully I'll make it in here again before Christmas but if I don't I hope you both have a wonderful and blessed Christmas with your families!

Love and prayers!
Jen

Jenn, I can relate to finding all the hidden packages LOL
No, I should have called today, and tomorrow is a Zumba class, then we go and preform at a Adult home, they did it last year and loved it and so did the residents.
I am not happy with wearing a tutu, but, whatever.

we will wear Black pants, white top and Red tutu.
with flashing Christmas bulb necklace.
I am sure there will be a picture.

Dr probably has you as being on maintenance for they adjustments.
Most insurance don't like to pay for that.
Just prescribed number of times to get it fixed. Like 12 or 20 for the year, As needed.

Yep, I feel if I can get 2 years out of a gadget, I am doing good.
Do you have a Step Goal?
Sometimes I don't hit my 8000 but yet I did a class, like Yoga and sT. they don't show a lot. But it was Exercise.
so I think my goal for 2019 is going to be Goal IF I do a Class.
but still try for more steps. Just not going to be down about it being low.

Speaking of feeling down, my Sister has been on my mind often the last month and it plays on my emotions. I want to pick up the phone and call. I did that with my mom too.

1/2 way done shopping, lots of time online.
good deals, and hope no one has to return anything.

Dan took out 95 GMC truck in for oil change, they said the serpentine belt was BAD, and so they replaced it. That's a dangerous belt to go bad.
So glad they paid attention to what they saw.
We hard drive it, but I loan it to my DD and GD on occasion and I would die if they lost control of the car because of a belt :(

I have only seen ONE hockey game in my life in person, very exciting to see it live.

ok Hoping all is well with Joanie.
I hope not to be Online shopping much more.
OK IF you don't make it back by Monday, emoticon Merry Christmas to you all. emoticon

Hello ladies!

Hope all is well with both of you! Praying that your surgery went well, JOAN, and that you are now recuperating and recovering nicely :)

YVONNE LOVE that picture, so pretty! Were you able to get an appointment made for a chiropractor for your hip? I hope it helps! For about several months I went to the chiropractor 2-3 times a week and then went to once a week for awhile, every other week for awhile, and my insurance coverage changed so now I only go once a month. I always feel better afterwards but wish I could go more often.
My Fitbit was over 2 years old I think when it finally bit the dust so I had a pretty good run with it. I actually like my pedometer better as far as accuracy of step count (since it doesn't count arm movements) but I do miss the challenges for sure.

I'm thinking I'm done shopping entirely now but I still need to get everything gathered, organized, and wrapped (have to find everything from the many different hiding places throughout the house hope I find them all, lol!)
Tomorrow I'll be taking the older car to the shop for an oil change and we've got a family outing to a hockey game (Omaha Lancers). WW meeting and shopping with Katelyn on Saturday, and Brocky Day on Sunday. Busy weekend!

Hope you both have a wonderful weekend and I'll try to get back in here again on Monday :)

Love and prayers!
Jen

Jenn, I just saw your post.
16 wow, that's a long time, longest I had was 13.
I don't know if I have seen the Kranks. I will have to look it up.
I agree the Movie is a keeper.
OK off to search for my gd The grinch, (the one at the Movie theaters. She saw it but loves the movie, she already has Jim Carrey Grinch and has watched it Many many times, she can repeat it.
Sorry the fitbit bit the dust. How old was it? If less than a year they will replace it.

OK Enjoy the day Girls :) emoticon

Grateful I got my Christmas tree up and few extras
Grateful we have this place to share thoughts and motivation.
Grateful I got through to my Dr. to have prescription sent to Chiropractor and medicare will cover part of it. (Maybe next Thursday or Friday)
my hip has a knot in in and Dan can feel it, maybe its a muscle I have over worked, but it sure is letting me know.
I will not do any Step class, may just do Low impact St. classes and Yoga classes this week.
Give the back and muscle a change to mellow out.

No pressure on getting to us right away, just relax emoticon and when you have plenty of time, give us a shout out how your doing

Hello ladies!

Ugh! I FINALLY got in here wouldn't you know when I really wanted to get in here each day and wish you all the best, JOAN, my internet has been stupid and wouldn't let me in! I know you've already left by now and may not see this until after the fact but I have been praying for you, will pray tomorrow, and will continue to pray afterwards for your peace of mind, the surgery itself, and your recovery :) SOOO happy to hear that your weather isn't as bad as originally forecast and that you're heading out today instead of the morning. YAY! Sounds like everything has lined up well for you emoticon emoticon

Had a busy weekend here with hubby off both days again and some shopping with Katelyn and then Brocky day today. We did watch The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix last night and I must say it was quite good and probably ranks right up there with our other favorites, Elf and Christmas with the Kranks :)

YVONNE my Fitbit bit the dust in July and I just haven't replaced it. I'm just using a pedometer now to track my steps :) And yes, Butterscotch is our dog 16 years old and blind and deaf, poor thing.

Hope you've both had a good weekend and have a great week ahead!

Love and LOTS of prayers,
Jen

Good morning Ladies.
Today is the big day, heading for Louisville in a few hours. Tomorrow , Monday is the big day, to say I'm ready is putting it mildly. I want to go ahead and ask and thank you both for your thoughts and prayers and I'll report in as soon as I can.
Have a great week ahead.

Grateful that the time is finally here for my surgery.

Grateful that Dr. Keller did finally call and he seems very kind.

Grateful that the weather is not as was predicted.

Grateful to have you two ladies as my friends here on Spark's.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

Thanks for the heads up on the Movie, I will look for it on Netflix.

The movie Green book is at the theaters, but I put it on my list of must see Netflix list.
I told one GD that I wanted to take them to the Theater.

Glad the storm is bypassing you, woohoo.
The hospital I am sure has free Wifi.
just need to ask them, when you get there.

All is going as planned. :)

Yvonne, a really cute movie I watched last night it was called ''Dumpling" a story about an overweight girl who signs up for a beauty pageant. It was cute and worth watching. I'll have to check out Green Book.

I think the Winter Storm is going South of us, and even though I feel bad for them I'm just glad its bypassing us. I'd rather go up tomorrow (Sunday) than go up today, but I'll go whenever June said she's ready.

Jenn, hope your well, and you have a great weekend.

I am taking my tablet with me with hopes I'll have an internet connection so I can keep in touch. Keep those prayers coming. I did hear from the surgeon, Dr. Keller last night. He was very nice, so I think its all going to work out.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

Good morning Jenn & Yvonne,
just a short note this morning. My surgery has been upped by 30 minutes which means I have to now be at the hospital at 9:30 instead of 10 on Monday morning. We are going up on Sunday morning, which is smart.
Hope you both have had a good week and the weekend will be a great one.

Love, Peace & Joy,

Hi Girls,

Well I am doing a 10 day Challenge on FB. I do what I can :)
Gym today I had a sub for Yoga, she volunteered to do the class. she was really good, explaining things:)
I still have to get decorations upstairs.

Its cold here this week in the 20s in the morning :(
I get nervous if its going to be slick on the roads.

JOAN, I am glad your sticking to getting it done. Sorry your surgeon got sick thats scary.
I miss my WW coach, he is realllly good. But I need to drop the wt down by 3 lbs to reach lifetime again. Not ready to put out payments on WW, I already am paying for online. Its making it difficult with the Holidays, more eating out.

JENN, Are you doing the Fitbit Challenges anymore? If so what is your Last initial? I know you do a lot of steps, keeps me going :)
I forgot what State your in????

Medicare will cover a Lift chair. Its a lift Recliner. Did you know they can be rented also?
Anything to help Judy.

I am tired, so going to take a mini nap. Hope you both have an AWESOME day.
PS
forgot about the puzzle. I bet its gorgeous. We have a family owned restaurant that has
KINCAID puzzles over each table, and from a distance they look like Oil paintings.
there so Beautiful.

BUTTERSCOTCH a dog?? My groomer made us Christmas ornaments of the dogs. so cute.

Good morning Yvonne & Jenn,
Found out yesterday that the doctor that is suppose to do my hip revision well, he went on a trip, got sick and now he's in a hospital somewhere. So I will be having a different surgeon so I can get it done on the same day, same time and same hospital. If I waited for Dr. Pomery, it would be sometime in 2019, and I just can't wait that long. No information on what the sickness is, nor where he is.

Thankful for my WW leader/Coach.

Thankful that today is my hair appointment, I am so ready for that.

Thankful that I'm just days away from my surgery and not weeks away.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

Good afternoon ladies!

Hope you're having yourselves a terrific Tuesday!

My thankfuls for today are
1. Butterscotch's ear infections have cleared up with the meds and she had her rabies shot so we don't have to go back for a recheck or shots
2. Got the housework done I wanted to do so I'm looking forward to a nice hot soak in the tub later
3. Hubby made a mess of the tub cleaning up a pair of shoes so he cleaned and scrubbed it out so now I don't have to do that this week yay! Lol, it's the simple things :P

I'm glad you're getting to your meeting today, JOAN I really hate to miss mine too and am always happy to be back after a miss. And you're right, sometimes it just is how it is, and there's nothing wrong with that. Life happens, stress happens, and looking at the big picture, this will all just be a blip or bump when you look back on it when all is said and done. No worries you'll get back on track! emoticon

I will be going to my meeting tomorrow and I've made myself a new personal goal and am committing myself to making it happen. No more laziness and excuses!!! I've been slacking bigtime lately and my body is tired and sluggish again time to get back to strong and healthy! emoticon

Love and prayers,
Jen

Jenn, I bet that was a hard puzzle to do. One of my sister's and her husband did a big chicken puzzle and had it framed, and its beautiful. I know your Dad will love it, and how great its John Wayne, my hero. emoticon

Grateful, that I got all my errands done yesterday.

Grateful that we don't have rain or snow this morning.

Grateful that I have my WW's meeting to attend today. I had to miss last week.

I'm not happy that the scale is sure to show a gain because I've been eating everything I can get my hands on. I know its just nerves, but that is just how it is .

Yvonne, hope your week is has started out well.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

Hello ladies :)

Hope you had a lovely start to your week and that it's good from start to finish :)

Today I'm thankful for
the roads weren't bad for yesterday's drives to Shelby and back
... that remote start we had installed since we won't be above freezing here for over a week.
holiday music on our cable network
I finished the puzzle that will be my dad's Christmas present after I coat and frame it (1,000 pieces of a John Wayne collage that thing was hard!)

I'm so happy that you're getting closer to your surgery date, JOAN doesn't seem so far out now that's it's less than a week :)
YVONNE glad you were able to find out some help for your friend :)

Love and prayers,
Jen

Yvonne, I wanted to say I thought the Dr. had to write a prescription for a chair, but I wasn't sure if I was right, so I never mentioned it. So happy you got some more information. I'm with you about shopping online, I have to touch and feel to know exactly if that's what I want to purchase.

Jenn, your husband is a keeper, doing all that work outside and all, making it where you didn't have it all to do. Hope Brocky had a nice Sunday.

I'm grateful that today I'm only one week away from getting my much needed surgery.

I'm so very grateful that I have so many people praying for me.

Grateful that yesterday our little town was able to have their Christmas parade and the weather beautiful.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

I found a bit of info on life chairs.
It has to come from the Dr. prescription and the Necessity of needing one.
so I will have her call and see if her Dr. will request one for her husband.

I still have not put my tree up but hope to in the next 2 days.

JEN, that was pretty nice he did so much outside to make things better for you all.
no snow here yet.

Can you believe the Earthquake in Alaska, omg. the pictures are on real.

Make me want to get my pantry ready for 2 weeks of not being able to go anywhere.

Thankful I still have my health.
thankful my kids live close
thankful my neighbors are quiet :)

looking forward to my oldest GD coming home for Christmas Break.

Trying to shop online, that's hard for me, I am a visual person LOL

Good morning ladies!
Thought I'd pop on here while I have a few minutes before the day gets away :)

YVONNE I'm sorry I don't have any experience with Medicare, just Medicaid for my son. We always had a case manager to go through for this and that but not sure that Medicare has that. Maybe a phone number on their Medicare card? And maybe it would depend on their coverage as far as a recliner. I know all of Brocky's stuff has been through the disability program that's where all of his 'extra' services come from. I would like to think that they would cover a recliner though, since I know they cover those mobile scooters/chairs??? Good luck to your friends I will pray that the process can go smoothly for them!
Hope you can get the airfare dates straightened out soon I know earlier is always better as far as paying and availability but unfortunately earlier is also harder in the planning stages ;)

JOAN I'm SO happy you're able to have jammie days and restful days! I always dream about those but they never quite pan out, lol. I'm actually going to work one in on Katelyn's break from school though telling hubby and the girls that I will not be getting dressed that day and that they are on their own :P

I'm a little anxious about the drive to Shelby today but I'm pretty sure it will be OK. Woke up to about 2-3 inches of snow and light snow is forecast the rest of the day but I don't have much driving to get to/from the interstate on each end of the drive and the interstate should be plowed. I just worry more about OTHER people's driving and the ice/snow that flies off of the tops of the bigger trucks at those higher speeds.

And my thankfuls
1. I'm thankful for my husband who has been outside for over an hour shoveling/snowblowing and getting my car brushed/scraped for the drive
2. I'm thankful for the beauty in a nice fresh snowfall
3. I'm thankful our Christmas decorations and tree are all complete
4. I'm thankful for a super awesome sale at Bath and Body Works yesterday three 3 wick candles, 3 body sprays, and some hand sanitizer for $27!!! (sales AND coupons)
5. I'm thankful for a wonderful family outing yesterday to the theatre to see Ralph Wrecks the Internet and then dinner and dessert out.

I hope you have a great rest of the weekend and get your week off to a great start tomorrow!
Love and prayers,
Jen

Good morning Ladies.
if you haven't done so, read the Sparks Guys, blog on being grateful. Its not only amazing, but really puts being grateful in perceptive.

It rained here the entire day yesterday, so I had a very quite day, watching TV, and crocheting pot holders, just something to keep y hands busy.

Hope you both have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Ladies.
Yvonne, I don't have any anxiety medication, there is so much of that stuff that goes the wrong way on me. So I just try my best to stay calm, its the people around me that can make that so difficult.
Is it one of those Lift Chairs your looking at? If it is I think Medicare may pay some on one, its not much, but even a little help is better than none. Hope you find what you need. Hang in there with WW's the holiday's will be over soon.

Jenn, hope your week is going well. Can you believe today is Dec. 1st. This year is flying by that is for sure.

1. Thankful for my TOPS group.

2. Thankful that its raining and not snowing this morning.

3. Thankful that I don't have to do anything today unless I really want to. Love this one. emoticon

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

Yeah, its almost here. I am with you. I like the idea of staying in a motel so its less stressful that morning.
you can't eat that morning so that's a long morning either way.
Do you have any anxiety meds?
My Dr. prescribes them when I fly, just 10 no refills.
they last a long time, and it sure helps with worry.
IF she insist on driving morning, I would insist its adding an extra hour, that way you check in and calm down way before being admitted,
I get to the airport 2 hr or more ahead of departure, so any traffic doesn't send me over the edge.
Plus then I am not as cranky with worry. :)


I am still over 2 lbs of Lifetime, so have not gone to any meetings.
I am still an Online WW.


I too worry about Rosie. I would think some how, some way, she could send off a post to you, just to let you know whats happened.


Hope to see you on FB while your in and out of the hospital.
I see those, I spend time on my cell when I can to keep p with FB.


JENN, you all will love the movie, its AWESOME.

Lucky you being done with shopping. My dd asked if I would help with airline fares for the girls and I am fine with it but we can't seem to get the dates figured out, so we can buy in advance...

Its cheaper from WA to CO then Spokane to Co.


Do either of you know how to get assistance for a Medicare person?
Will they pay for a recliner for someone that medically needs one?

any ideas would be helpful to share with my friends.

Jenn, how great that your daughter has made an offer on a house. When we were coming up and had jobs if we still lived at home our parents charged us rent. I have to admit at the time I thought this was the cruelest thing, BUT today I can say because they did this is why I know how to take care of myself. I know its hard to let the little birds out of the nest, but you also don't want to hold them back. Good luck.

Yvonne, hope your week is going well. Can't believe its Friday, unless my mind changes I'm not getting out of my PJ's tomorrow. I say that a lot, and have yet to have an all day PJ day. lol lol lol.

TOPS group today. It will be great to see everyone its been two weeks since we've been together.

Love,
Joan

Hello ladies!
Oh my goodness, I've been busy! I did some Black Friday shopping and then I finished up 99% of my Christmas shopping this week. Feels SOOO good to be basically done. I try really hard to stay away from the stores (except for groceries of course) in December. All I have left is cash and candy/stocking stuffer type stuff.
And here's a careful what you wish for situation my oldest daughter is 24 and still living here with us and we had been musing that maybe it was time to start charging her rent since she's no longer taking classes and doesn't seem to be in a hurry to move out. She HAS been saving money for years and she put an offer in on a house and it was accepted and she's now in the financing/home-buying process! So I went from thinking it was time for her to spread her wings and fly to now thinking maybe it wouldn't be so bad to have her here forever, lol!!! We are SO proud of her, she is such a mature and responsible young woman, but now I feel like I'm losing one of my babies ;) Ages and stages and independence this parenting stuff is a roller coaster!!!

JOAN I'm so happy that your testing went well and that you're all set for your surgery on the 10th :) I pray that you're not in too much discomfort in the meantime and I will also pray that your sister does change her mind and leave a day early.
And I also think of Rosie quite often was just thinking earlier today about you and Yvonne and praying that all is well with Rosie too and hoping that maybe she just went computer free (which I contemplate doing from time to time as we've been having issues with our service provider again another reason I was AWOL for these past quite a few days).

YVONNE I hope you've been doing well this week! We've got The Christmas Chronicles on our mental to-do list for this month glad to hear a good opinion of it and we will definitely have to make sure we get around to it :)

Hope you ladies finish the week well and have a great weekend!

Love and prayers,
Jen

Here it is Thursday and I'm back from my pre opt testing that was done in Louisville on Wednesday morning. It all went smoothly. Surgery is set for Dec.10 at noon. I have to be at the hospital by 10 a.m. that Monday morning. I want to go up the night before and stay in a hotel so we don't have to worry about the Monday morning traffic on I-65, but my sister that is driving wants to go up the day of the surgery. For me its stressful enough just having surgery much less having to be stressed with worry of will be get there on time and you both know so many things can go wrong when your on the road. So please pray that my sister has a change of heart and will go up the Sunday before, I have even offered to pay for a hotel room all by myself. It would be hard to do on my income, but I would make it work just not to have to be stressed out. I don't want my blood pressure to be so high from stress that the doctor might say, ''no can't do surgery," I think that would all but kill me. Even with all of this I'm still Grateful.

1. I'm grateful that everything went so smoothly yesterday with the testing.

2. So GRATEFUL that we found where we needed to be without too much problem.

3. Grateful that we made it home safely, and by 12:30 yesterday afternoon.

4. Even though my sister's want to be hard headed about going up a day early I am still so very grateful for them.

Ladies, have a great day.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan

Good morning Ladies.

1. Grateful that the snow missed us.

2. Grateful that I got all those phone calls made yesterday, even if they didn't call me back.

3. Grateful for both of you that help to keep this thread going.

If I had a wish for today it would be that Rosie would let us know where she is or what has happened to her. I have to admit I'm not having a good feeling about her long absence at all.

Today I leave for Louisville, pre-opt testing tomorrow. I'm to be at the hospital at 7:30 so we are going up today so we don't have to get up and drive in the dark to Louisville.

Love, Peace & Joy,
Joan
