Today, I enjoyed some sister time. We went to an outdoor concert. It was a man who sang Frank Sinatra & a lady dressed as Marilyn Monroe. Beautiful evening1

At this stage of my life, I do a pretty good job of caring for myself. That was not always the case.
At one time I was very much loving others too much & expecting them to make me happy.

I have learned from my mistakes.

I try to surround myself with positive people. Today it has been hard. My daughter called & is needing to vent. A young friend in a wheelchair messaged me on FB & is stuck feeling looked down upon due to his handicap. I try to be supportive & think I need to shine a light in their darkness.

Quilting sounds interesting. I am developing a story about a group of ladies who are retired quilters (they retired to quilting not from it) . I look forward to your quilting posts.

My stress relievers...being able to vent and share in this group. It has helped SOOOOOOOOO much. I appreciate all the love and support. emoticon

My morning walks are great. It is my ME time and I am so worth it.

Reading, I love to read. It takes me to another place, far away from where I am in my life

Quilting... I LOVE to quilt, but don't get to do much because I am busy taking care of my MIL. Once she is in the memory care facility, I hope to get many quilts made!!

DH & I started walking this week after work each night - been nice and fun! Was surprised that he was the one who suggested it!

We took Buster yesterday with us -- hampered us quite a bit - with sniffing, etc..

Then today we took Buster & Sugar - and since we were going through the neighborhood this time after 1 lap around - we dropped them back off! over 2 miles each day.

Back in Pa. Before leaving Va. I went for coffee with my S I L. Then on the way home we listened to a TED talk on P R. After that came P H C. Best drive I've had in a while. Home again. Lots to do this week.

I liked your explanation Sam.


For me a good laugh is taking care of ourselves.

He joined the team I am a co leader on (Sarcastics) Let's just say S A stands for Smart Aleck!

I got to walk in the neighborhood for 20 minutes tonight. The last 5 days mom was here she was completely bed-bound and completely un-cooperative when needing her diaper changed. It really hurt my back and left us both totally exhausted. I have been resting as much as possible. We ate out Wed. through Sat. as neither one of us felt like getting groceries or cooking.

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

I am a bit confused on all you all's postings - but that is OK !! We are all here to support each other & if I can't understand it - seems like a few of you are getting it ok with each other! LOL

I am not understanding the S A of the month on the team? Especially the trophy?

I am going to bring this thread around to the original topic --

WE NEED to take care of ourselves....

What are we doing to exercise & keep ourselves healthy?

I walked a 5k with my doggie Buster this am -- did some hand weights & squats & crunches. emoticon

Good one Bel!

"Also my son-in-law is a Greek so he can help me with tech stuff. I am looking forward to it."

I was not aware the Greeks were so tech savvy. Everyone thinks it's just the Chinese and the Indians!

Oh! I can be such a dummy sometimes, Mr. Bel! I didn't "connect the dots" that you meant the seven people were your daughters family! Duh! emoticon Forgive me for my stupidity! Ha! I thought you meant you were gonna visit your daughter only briefly, and then move in with seven strangers somewhere and that had me baffled! Ha!

I once saw a PBS special on storytellers and thought it was fascinating. It would be cool if this move gave you more stories and experiences to speak of. Everyone loves a good story!

Yes I am a story teller. I tell at a local listening club. I told at fairs, churches, senior centers, I do shows of my own and worked with others. I tell traditional folk tales, personal stories, create some of my own Pa Dutch stories, I do enjoy doing it.

My wife illness does slow me down. Which is part of why I'm moving in with my daughter. When we move in there will be seven of us. I am hoping to do some writing as well as telling.
Being around more people gets my creative juices flow. Also my son-in-law is a Greek so he can help me with tech stuff. I am looking forward to it.

Bob, so you are an "actual" storyteller? Have you ever spoke to groups and told your stories? Ain't nothin' like a good story!!!

I'm glad you are liking the changes you are making! Sometimes a move can open up a whole new world with new hope and new adventures.

It's totally none of my business, but I just can't figure out why you'd be moving into a house with 7 people? But like I said--none of my business. But whatever it is, I hope you find happiness and peace and a better life.

Okay I am back.

I am at my daughter's house. Everybody went swimming. So that gives me some quiet time on the computer. SW has gone to take a nap' Life is indeed good. I see this visit as my the beginning of my new life. I am selling my house, having bypass surgery, moving to Va. from a home with two people to a house with seven people. It certainly will take some adjustment, i never had a real blog before but I think I should start one.

I am hoping the move will enable me to be able to get out to tell more stories, maybe actually earn money doing it. I do feel comfortable, Looking out the window I see kids playing,. That is great.

I seem ti be getting off of what I want to say. Some times when I speak I feel I must speak for everyone who is going through what I am. Maybe my posts will help you deal with your parents or loved ones, Please be patient with me.

Bob

Slo, I've been a co-leader at Spark for years now and had never heard of them having a "no negative posting" policy. But I guess they do, huh?

But still, I wouldn't be too paranoid of that if I were you. Like Leslie said, we all have bad days. A support group is "supposed" to be for people who are having negative feelings. Most of us here are having negative feelings about the weight we are now--that's why we joined Spark...we feel we need help with losing weight.

So don't let it play on your mind too much. Even as a leader I've gotten discouraged and posted very negative posts before, but the group has stepped up and encouraged me. Sometimes personal problems need to be taken "off group" and discussed in one to one emails, but usually we can handle a topic as a group.

And we can tell you're a nice person--so don't worry! emoticon In fact, everyone here seems like nice folks! emoticon

Hi folks, i read the article. I thought about bot Sal and my posts. them. Both mentione a problem we were dealing with. Neither went into details. If we are to help each we need to know what we are dealing with. The death of a loved one is something we need to know.

I see myself in a particular position. It seems everyone else is dealing with a paren. Someone with whom they do not live, I have recently done that. Now I am dealing with my wife. I find it a completly different matter. As aq story teller I see something I must talk about. Maybe in my storytelling presentation. Got to go SW needs me.

Leslie-found an article on the positive thing
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat
io
n_articles.asp?id=349


5 points for reading it! So it looks like the way the Spark Police find you wrote something negative is somebody reports you. Once a lady on one of my teams wrote a blog titled "My son is dead!" She was obviously hurting a lot. A day or two later she wrote that she had been told she could not write about her son anymore as it was too negative. I guess that means someone reported her post as inappropriate. I thought the same as you, that she desperately needed some encouragement, which she did get from many people. I wrote something too as I know what it is like to lose a son.

SLO- I'm not sure that Spark has a policy of posting only positive things? There would be no support system in place if people weren't in need and able to ask for it.

If we were all positive all the time, then we sure wouldn't need to vent/ask questions/etc... Everyone has needs - has highs & lows.

It was positive for me. It was the story of a man who did well by his wifs and found what he needed after. However, he probably could say more with just a contented smile on his face.
Some times those we love make it hard for us. I hope his new wife is loved as well.
For I find community in the pool at the Y. Still I look for more.

This is much harder than caring for Mom was. I feel I am facing my greatest burden as by most important supporter fades away.

In our town gather to chat is at Hardee's. There is always a table of retired men there in the morning.

Last night while I was playing mindless games on the computer I remembered that Spark has a policy that we post positive stuff only so I apologize for talking about my FIL It was hardly a positive story. I hope the Spark Police don't kick me out!

I'm gonna come up with some ideas - and maybe your town won't have those... but we can all brainstorm on these things! Right now I'm not quite yet 50! and I'm always looking for activities that my Mom can enjoy!

Our Senior Center is for anyone who wants to go -- My Mom & her caregiver go there almost every Wed at 10 am to do an exercise class and sometimes we can talk her into going to Bingo there on a couple days a week.

How about your local Health Department? Our Health Dept offers Senior exercise classes and monthly wellness luncheons. I go to the lunches & take Mom sometimes with me. They offer a healthy lunch at $4 and have a program to go with it - and drawings & contests. I've won a couple drawings and contests over the years.

What about playing BINGO - most towns have an Elks Lodge or Mason's or something like that that does BINGO.

Our little town also has a little theater and they have plays & documentaries. I think I am going to take Mom to one next Friday night. It's a documentary and I need to look into it further before I commit to going.

Our library branch offers different things in the evenings - Mom & I went to a discussion about the history of our town earlier this summer. They have a couple of other events coming up that I am thinking of going to.

What about social media? Twitter or Facebook - those can be places online that you can interact with your current friends & find old friends.

Everyone please feel free to voice any opinions or ideas!

Senior centers for those over 65. Nothing much for us 50 somethings. Unless u find a good church.

Okay, time to change the subject. Taking cAre of ourselves socially maybe as important as diet or exercise. And in today's world equally difficult. The world I grew up in had many places to gather. Not so today. Bars, clubs., coffee shops are all gone. Gather to chat is truly gone. We are afraid of each other. SO HOW you reach out to real people? Where is the best place to find friends?

THANKS for your response. Sounds your f I l found something he needs after a long tough times. He could be a little discrete. Try to be happy for him. When subjects are taboo they become difficult to deal with.

I certainly don't have advice for Bel. But I am reminded of my FIL who took care of MIL for a long time. She died in Sep. 2005 and within a month or so he was renting porn tapes and saying he had to find a woman. He made his children feel like he was disrespecting their mother. I remember my husband being so sad at Christmastime and saying "well Mom, at least I remember you and miss you". Later on he would brag about his new sex life to everyone to the point he has alienated his family quite a bit and it hasn't gotten any better over the past 7 years. There are some things kids don't want to hear about. Even 50 year old kids. he was a great and devoted caretaker while she was alive. Such a shock to us. I have seen many widows/widowers who do not act like this and do find a new mate that the whole family loves. Wish that could have happened with him.

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

I hear ya, Bel--but just keep in mind there are ladies in the group, too! Ha! emoticon (That emoticon is supposed to be a lady blushing!) But I know what you're saying...that part of your intimate life is missing now.

Being basically a bachelor, I don't have any good advice to offer. I wish there were more men in this group, so some of them might have a suggestion for you.

I apologize for two reason. I found that old post, it is still here. I am also sorry for beating around the Bush. We need be honest with each other. This is my mate. I am very "horny". I feel I can say that because we are some what anonymous and are miles apart.

Leslie, you read my mind!!! I was going to write you today about how I wish there was a sticky topic about exercise in this group (because we need to take care of ourselves too! Sound familiar! LOL!) and I logged in today and you've already done it! Good for you! It was exactly what I thought we needed, cause I know I for one don't always do well with exercise when I'm under stress--and I need to exercise despite the stress...cause it will help relieve the stress!

Well, my vegan group just began what we are calling "The 30 Day Deal" where we put on any kind of bracelet for 30 days to remind us to commit to ourselves and each other to get rid of our "addictive" foods for 30 days (mine is soda pop and desserts). But we didn't make any exercise plan...so I'm excited that here I can do that!

Right now walking is not an option for me (long story, but I used to have an area to walk in and no longer do). So I'll try to do two things: use my Rock and Roll Stepper (its a mini exercise machine that is kinda fun--kinda like dancing or jogging) and I'll try to lift weights. Both of these things are things that I've been wanting to do for months, but have been lazy, stressed and fighting it! And I keep gaining and gaining! So now's the time to give it my best shot, along with you guys!

Leslie, did you want us to post daily what we do--or weekly? Thanks for creating this thread, Leslie! I needed it!!!!

Good luck with your surgery Belsnickel! If you check out Spark Fitness tracker - they count badminton, dancing and biking as exercise! You can burn lots of calories doing those! You can also count Wii exercises if you have a Wii. Sounds like you have a great plan in place.

I had been swimming 3 times a week at the Y. I have slowed down the last few weeks. The pool has been filled with kids and summer got me a little busier. Next week they will return to school. AFTER my operation in a few month. I will no longer exercise. I will however go on two hour footed adventures. I also found a place I can play Badmitten twice a week. And. I am hoping to find a place to dance. Maybe I' 'll buy myself a bike. WITH ALL that playing, I just won't have time to exercise.

I like to walk, maybe I will get to this evening, it's been tough being cooped up lately


If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

Today I did gardening, canning and some really heavy housework. No actual cardio - but I sure feel beat!

What does everyone think of tracking some walking minutes each week? I don't know where everyone is at their fitness levels on this team - but I think that walking a few times a week will be a benefit to us all.

Here's a great Spark Article on the benefits of walking

Just post here what workouts you are doing, whether it is walking, running, Zumba, etc...
