Isn't it amazing what we learn about ourselves when we take the time to listen to our bodies and our hearts? You sound like you have spent a lot of time and effort analyzing all that is going on with you, and as you are coming up with answers and solutions you can getting more out of it than many people who spend years going through phychoanalysis (and at the cost of hundreds or thousands). So I'd say, "good for you, Ann."

I am working on understanding my emotional eating and that involves understanding my emotions. I have always felt that I was more self aware than many people and I still think that is true, but I am finding emotional stuff that I just didn't know was there.

My latest discovery is that I am a "fixer." Somethings are not fixable and I cannot fix things for others. We all have to fix our own stuff. What I discovered is that when I want to fix something and cannot, I get anxious. Anxious is not a word I would ever have used to describe me. Already knowin this is helping. Once I could see that talking about a problem that is not mine to solve can make me very anxious, I know I need to end the conversation, spend some time relaxing and reminding myself that I am doing what I can but I am not responsible to fix the problem. Then when I am calm again, I can talk about it again.

Now I can recognize when I am feeling anxious so I will be able to deal with it. When I didn't know what it was, I was just upset and uncomfortable with no idea what to do. Enter food to calm me. No more, I used to do that but I don't anymore.

When I first relocated from Sedona to the Phoenix area that is the main reason I decided against moving to a 55+ community. So I bought a mid-sized 3 bedroom/2 bath home in a residential area, and I love it. When I get on a cookie baking spree (it does not happen as often any longer) I can give the cookies to the kids in the neighborhood. There was a time though that I decided it would suit me in that 55+ community, and I went so far as to buy a little 2 bdrm/2 bath patio home -- remodeled and redecorated it completely. However after living in it for about a year I found that houses were not selling - period!! So now I was stuck with two homes and my other home was much newer, much nicer and had a doggie door leading to a lovely backyard complete with lawn and shrubs (all enclosed with a 6-foot high block wall. So I moved back and I'm renting out the one in the 55+ community. I still have the advantages of having a Rec. Card and that gets me into all the goodies (exercise room, pools, all sorts of activities) and it's where I do volunteer work at the Library.

If the market ever changes I will sell the home over there, but it's like you said -- it has its advantages and also its disadvantages. Perhaps when I am even older I will like it better. It is a bit of work to care for my yard and other maintenance, but I'm a pretty agile and active 71-year old. (knock on wood for that one)

Congratulations to all who are following their plan. You deserve credit for doing a good thing.

I live in a retirement community and it has advantages and disadvantages. One disadvantage is far too often we hear of people being ill. Two ladies I know well and like a lot are having problems. Both are cancer survivors and one just had a stroke and the other had bleeding ulcers, didn't know it, and nearly died from blood loss. She went to the ER last Friday, came home last night, and went back to the hospital this morning.

Sorry about the sad post but I have a tendency to want to step in and fix things and it is hard to accept that I cannot. I am praying for all who are having health problems.

The phone rudely interrupted my routine this morning, and I had the news that one of the 'regulars' at the Library didn't feel well. As I was already planning a day out and about I decided to just fill the vacancy myself. I called the Library and told them I would be in, but probably could not make it until close to 9:30. I had to shower, shampoo my hair, blow it dry, put on make=up, fix my hair and dress. Can you believe I got all this done in about 30 minutes. I was only about 5 minutes late for my shift. Left at 11:20 and met a friend for a long, leisurely lunch, home to take a nap -- then got up and took my dog on a nice LONG walk. So I'm feelin' pretty healthy. I deserve the glass of wine I'm having tonight!

I stopped by Walmart where I bought it in hopes that one of the gals in the fabric dept. would know! And they did!!! Apparently I just wasn't moving my fingers right over the area that pops up and slids out so the bobbin can drop in. Then I asked about the short little shaft that is supposed to hold up the thread -- again, there was a hidden switch and it popped up when you pressed the right spot. Gads! Who would think life could be so complicated -- and I haven't even started sewing yet. Now that I have that part figured out I can finally figure out what and how I'm going to sew my pillow cases! I do know I'm going to make several covers for pillows I already have and close them up with velcro, then when I want to change my decorating scheme I can just change the pillow coverings.

I want to know when sewing machines got so difficult to run and why manufacturers decided it was necessary. I know they added a bunch of functions, but some of us would be more than happy with a standard machine that just sews like they did years ago. But, you will figure it out. I have one and if I don't use it for a while, I have to get out the manual to do anything with it.

My day went quite well, except for not being able to figure out my new sewing machine! And glancing up at the calendar I realize we are in THE LAST WEEK OF THE MONTH AGAIN! Wow!

I know I haven't reached my monthly goal, but I feel good about myself and I have submitted new goals and know they will make an impact. It all takes time, and one step at a time is all I want from myself.

I did follow my meal plan fairly well. I made a couple of substitutions. I had planned on toast for breakfast but substituted a muffin instead.

I am giving myself credit today for many things. I am doing well on my food plan, I did my exercise, I walked the dog, I drank my water, and this morning I tackled one of my least favorite jobs.

I keep all my "paperwork" in a desk drawer. That way if I need something, the older stuff is in the file and the current year stuff is in a drawer. I can always find things. Each year I try to empty the drawer every few months to file things including putting the tax stuff in my current tax file. Unfortunately I don't get it done regularly and come January I have to finish it to be ready for tax return preparation in February.

I was scheduled to play pickleball at 8 this morning but it was raining buckets so since I couldn't go out and have fun, I emptied the drawer, made stacks to deal with the different types of paper, got all of the tax stuff together, then I purged some of my files and did all the filing. I even did a fair amount of paper shredding. I did not finish it all but I now have a small stack of files to purge and a small stack of paper to shred. If time permits, I am going to finish it tomorrow.

I am also giving myself credit for stopping. When I start a job like this, I tend to keep going until it is finished, but often that means I wear myself out, get grumpy, and don't do other things that also need to be done.

There was a time when I was dating an Italian guy and he would buy these jars of roasted red and yellow peppers, and put them on literally everything. And that's how I discovered they are extremely good on sandwiches. Not bad in pasta either. That was about the same time that I changed my mind completely about pasta. In the old days if I thought "pasta" it was spaghetti and meat sauce, maybe the regular spaghetti sauce with meatballs. Then one day I discovered adding a little olive oil to the pasta and some steamed veggies. Grate a little parmesan or ricotta over it and what a meal!

Have you ever noticed that people seem to cook the same things over and over. I guess it depends on the stage of your life. Most people with kids make up macaroni and cheese; but I never did. My favorite thing was tuna casserole and also meatloaf. But do you know something? I haven't made either one of them in probably a year. Things change, tastes change.

I'm not good at figuring out tomorrow's menu when it is just me. If I'm with someone and know I have to cook I'm better at it, but when it's just me I tend to grab what's available, but mostly what I have on hand is all healthy so it's OK.

I am reading Beck and Spangle and one of today's exercises is to start planning the next days food. Part of me didn't like the idea but actually it doesn't take much time and I frequently do it in my head anyway. I decided to do it because when nothing sounds interesting to eat, I will have something planned. Also I can get an better idea if the day has a balanced menu. It will be interesting to see how well I follow it tomorrow.

Eve-your sandwich sounds delightful. I like to put sauteed peppers and onion on my pizza along with turkey pepperoni and some very lean ground beef. Peppers and onions make lots of things better.

Whatever you're doing Ann, it's working. You've lost 7 pounds according to your ticker, and that is fantastic! I can't follow along with SP's calorie plan for me either -- I'd gain weight on it, and that is NOT what I want.

Took my dog out for a late walk, it was just a bit longer as the park that we normally cut across was filled completely with WATER. When you live in an area like this that isn't used to rain, it has to go somewhere, so all the lower regions fill up with it. So we had to walk 'around' the park. I felt pretty good when I got home, but not in the mood for my big green salad which is what I normally eat for dinner. So tonight it was turkey with the red & yellow roasted peppers on it -- made into a sandwich with Spicy Brown Mustard (better than mayo). Delic!

I am pushing myself to eat. I am eating about 1100 calories a day. One thing I am doing is learning how to eat for a lifetime. I don't ever want to eat differently. As long as I am eating healthy things to nourish my body, I am content. I eat fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains every day. I eat a variety of foods. I cannot eat a lot of food at one time so portions are small. I do eat snacks but lately haven't wanted them. Today I really wanted meat which is unusual. But I am assuming that I need it so I had it for dinner. I also take vitamins, minerals and supplements every day to make sure I get everything I need.

Thanks for caring and asking about me.

Ann, are you sure you're giving your body enough nutrition? A Clementine and toast with butter does not seem like much of a lunch.

I know that most of us want to lose weight, and again we want it to happen FAST! But like when we are sick and the pounds fall away fast because we just aren't interested in eating -- they also come back with a vengeance when we start to eat normal again.

Things are going well for me. I couldn't think of anything for lunch that sounded good to eat. So I had a Clementine (like a tangerine but way better) because it was healthy and helped meet my fruit/veggie goal. Then I went out for a bike ride and when I got back I had a lovely piece of toast (whole grain) with just a bit of whipped butter.

It was wonderful to not be particularly interested in food. I had planned dinner and ate it even though I wasn't particularly interested. What a joy to make myself eat instead of wanting to eat anything, everything, constantly.

I am doing a lot of things to enhance my food and exercise plan and things are working well for me. I cannot ascribe success to any one thing I am doing but as long as things go this well, I am going to continue with all of them.

Great Day Today

Today we went to Merritt Island which is a bird sanctuary on the island where the Kennedy Space Center is located. We saw a lot of nice birds but had a spectacular experience. Scrub Jays are only found in Florida and they are difficult to locate and many bird watchers have never been able to see them. There is a trail where we were today where they are very friendly. We had to walk about 1/2 mile (and we had puppy with us) before we saw them. DH went ahead while I stayed back with the puppy and one of the three birds sat on his head. He put his hand up with peanuts and the bird ate from his hand. Then he come back to where I was to watch the puppy while I went to the Jays. I had peanuts in both hands and one came and sat on my left hand and ate peanuts. He was so beautiful. Then DH went back again and 2 of the birds (one at a time) came and ate from his hand. It was great.

To make it better, I got in some exercise which I didn't expect and I stayed on my food plan in spite of being away from home.

I doubt if anyone is ever happy with how fast the scale moves -- I know I'm not. However, this morning as I slipped into a pair of jogging pants that my daughter had bought me a couple of years ago, I realized how much slimmer I'd gotten. So it's not always just the scale, sometimes it is the inches that tell you the healthy lifestyle is working. I try to keep the term "diet" out of my vocabulary, but it has a tendency to creep back in now and then, but I'm loving my new healthy lifestyle and feel so much better for it.

Eve,

My journal is personal. It isn't on the net at all. I am reading Linda Spangle and the Beck books and one of them (I think Spangle) suggests a Journal. I never kept a diary but I do frequently have lots of thoughts the a journal may help me organize. I am trying to write something every day. It is just another way to say focused on thinking differently.

The weather here today is wonderful. Warm with a really nice wind. The scale is being a pain. However I have been following my food and exercise plans really well. I missed some exercise when it was cold but am really making up for it now.

Today I walked the dog, went to the gym and did 20 minutes, then walked part of the way home.

Despite the fact the scale is not cooperating, I am happy knowing that I am doing the right things and that the weight loss will happen. I used to get discouraged easily and sometimes even the scale moving down was not enough to keep me on track. I am different now. I know that I am developing a lifestyle that I will need to continue for the rest of my life and I need to do this for my health and happiness no matter what. I am committed and I feel successful knowing I am staying on plan.

Have a wonderful day.

Thanks Ann! I think a lot of people will get a message from this one. When you say you posted it in your journal -- is your journal made so anyone can read it, or is it just for YOU? I post to my journal most days, but I'd never make it open to the public -- way too much personal feelings and what's going on in my life for that. lol

I'll check out that blog. Thanks again.

Ann -- you should do a copy and paste and put the message you just sent to us fellow team members into a blog. I think a lot of people would find both advice and motivation by reading about it.

It was well written and really hit to the heart of things for a lot of us. I'm sure there are many among us (I don't happen to be one of them) who were fat kids, fat young adults and find ourselves going into retirement still overweight. Somewhere along the line my own sister joined into that group and has been quite overweight in excess of 20 or more years. She doesn't have a computer, but I'm hoping if I buy her the book "The Spark" perhaps she will read it and get motivated.

You are an inspiration, Ann! Please do the blog on this!

Hugs to you, you deserve it -- Eve

I have been heavy my entire life. I was overweight from about age 5 or 6. I just got bigger and bigger as I got older. I remember favorite foods and bragging that I liked almost all foods. I was a member of the clean plate club and my one acknowledged accomplishment as a child was that I could eat more food than an adult. I was encouraged to overeat, eat when I wasn't hungry, and when I was really too young for this was allowed to take as much food as I thought I wanted onto my plate but then was forced to eat all of it no matter what.

After years of dieting and regaining and ending up heavier after each diet and then not dieting at all and gaining 5-10 pounds a year, I decided that at 225 if I didn't do something I would be huge when I retired and I didn't want to be old and handicapped because of my weight.

One thing I learned is that I don't love food. Food is not my friend--it is an enemy. I finally stopped eating things that were just OK and only ate things I really enjoyed. But with age my taste buds have changed and most things just don't taste all that good.

This however, did not change the emotional eating. 20 years ago I had my stomach stapled. This is not the drastic surgery generally being done today, it is only making the stomach physically smaller. So I cannot eat a lot of food at one time. The other benefit of the surgery is that I am never hungry. If I really don't eat, I get dizzy but never hungry. So I have some nice tools to help me with eating. But the emotional stuff kept me eating.

I originally lost about 65 pounds after the surgery but gradually over the years got back to about 190. Then 6 years ago I lost 20 pounds doing Low Carb. I did it for 18 months and it was the easiest food plan I ever used but by the end of 18 months I was so sick of everything on my plan that I bailed in a whirlwind of chocolate. To this day there are very few food I ate then that I will eat now.

In the past 4.5 years I have gained and lost 20 pounds. I am hopeful for the first time in a long time that I can beat this. I am reading Beck and Spangle and all their tips for changing thinking and conquering emotional eating.

Not being interested in food is a result of feeling good emotionally.

Are you sick, Ann? Well, you must be because food always sounds like a good idea to me unless I am really, really sick!

I have been tracking my food on the Nutrition Tracker for a few days and upon seeing that I did not get enough calories a couple of days, I went ahead and ate more food in the evening hours. It was the wrong thing to do (for my body) because I have gained each and every day. So I'll stick to when my body says I'm full, I quit eating -- I do not care what the Nutrition Tracker says. I'd much rather be losing weight than gaining!

This is a good day. DH and I did 15 minutes at the gym before breakfast. When I got home I took the dog out for a walk, then I did 2 miles on my bike (I wanted to check the distance of the walk I did yesterday), and then DH and I did another 3/4 of a mile walking.

Food has been good. Nothing sounds particularly tempting and I actually had to force myself to eat something this afternoon. Then, I didn't finish my dinner.

I want this feeling to last forever.

Ann -- that just means you need to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your entrees and sides. Then when they become leftovers they will still be healthy.

Wednesday is a "me" day and as such I slept late, still on my first cup of coffee and plan to go to Barnes & Noble and pick up my copy of The Spark. I also have Costco on my list so I can get more feta. I can't live without that stuff on hand. In fact, Costco is also the best and cheapest place to buy romaine, another big staple for me.

I am having a really good day. For the first time in a long time, every thing I though of to eat didn't seem particularly interesting. Coffee sounded good and I did have 2 big cups but everything else I ate was an attempt at eating up leftovers and trying in get in fruit and vegetables.

OK, Jack -- I'm off my soapbox! lol I have something new to tell you. I have been trying for 2 or 3 days to get my new furniture photo's loaded on this thing, and it would say "too big" or something. I finally did it just now. So if you'll go to my Spark Page the new arrangement for the entryway is on there (with light leather chairs instead of the red suede) and the great room is really different than before. You'll see the old arrangement on there too, when I still had the creme colored sofa.

Scotmama is on her soap box again. But that's a good thing. We need the boot in the bottom every now and then to remind us what we're here for. Weight loss and this is my year.

Blessings from Georgia,
Jack

I had occasion to stop by our "Monthly Weigh In" thread a moment ago and was taken aback by the fact that out of close to 100 members only 4 of us signed in. Wow! Now I recognize that we are "Retired Seniors" but the name of this site is SparkPeople and we are all on here to tone up, lose weight, get healthy! Or did I somehow log into the wrong site this morning? Folks, that 'retired' not 'retarded' so come on, let's show a little enthusiasm for the real reason we are at this site.

I know that back the end of 2007 when I joined I was somewhere between 162 and 157. Today my weight is just over 144. There is nothing amazing about my progress, ......but IT IS PROGRESS. And I know that lots of you have lost weight and are doing great. I only wonder why you are unwilling to share that good news. Is once a month too often to record one's weight? For someone who is the leader of "Daily Weigh In" I'd have to say NO! So let's see a little more participation here. PLEASE!

Wow! 10 miles is impressive! It's a wonder you aren't down to a little shadow by now!

Good to see you back with us, Jack!

Hope everyone had a great Holiday time. I made it through with a weight loss inside of a gain for change. Cold here in Georgia so doing my walking indoors with Leslie. Did 10 miles today.

Another year to get it all done. This is the year of reaching my goal. Have a great day and get to those new year revolutions.

Blessings from Georgia,
Jack

Hi everyone.

I am having a good day. It is cold for Florida so I didn't feel like going anywhere but DH and I went to the gym anyway. We did 15 minutes with the weights and machines and then 3/4 of a mile walking on the track. Then when we got home, we immediately took Joey (our puppy) out for a walk and did another 20 minutes.

We have ice cream in the house which is my nemesis but thankfully it has not be calling to me.

I'd like to be inspirational, but frankly I'm just too tired tonight. So tomorrow I'll put something on here for everyone, or send it by Spark Mail.

Happy New Year to a really wonderful group of Team Members!!
