Zak: Well things are going to unfold as they're supposed to. Today was a day of MANY phone calls, but have to continue on tomorrow.

Mom was relatively good this morning, but had 2 panicked calls from Dad this afternoon to calm Mom down, which I did accomplish . . . eventually. **SIGH** This seems to be a pattern when she gets overly tired (and she had 2 physical therapy sessions today), so going to have to get it in her nursing plan that she has a short nap, especially before her afternoon PT.

1 - glad to hear your Mom was calmer. How did her PT evaluation go? I hope it didn't stress her out to much.

Ali - Hi! I agree if they're not listening I'd be upset too. Personally it sounds like 1 has the patience of a saint. You both are such an inspiration in more than one way!

Well today I started The Biggest Loser Boot Camp program today. I wasn't able to have everything they planned for me for breakfast (crazy morning) but I got most. I had a Chicken Caprese sandwich for lunch (omg sooooo good). I tried something else new today that I never liked - turkey. I had the deli meat turkey and turkey bacon, they were very good. I am proud of myself for continuing to try foods I never liked. It's funny but my excuse before was that I couldn't lose weight because I didn't like to eat the healthy foods (chicken, cottage cheese, eggs, turkey, and fish) now I eat them - now what will my excuse be? I did the Day one exercise program today too. It was hard but I honestly tried to do my best. I wasn't able to do the full two rounds of exercise (managed about 1.5), but I know I pushed myself so I am happy with that. I hope you all have a great night and I'll see you all tomorrow.

p.s. 1 - your family continues to be in my prayers and I hope things start working out how you'd like them to.

Monday – Mom was a bit calmer. Dad was with her all day. She did have a physical therapy evaluation, so at least that’s a positive.

Looked at another facility up here by us which I think is where we’ll end up bringing her . . . hoping to accomplish that in the next couple of weeks.

John left this morning to go back to Alaska. Boooooo. Miss him.

Yes, that's the aggravating part. I had things discussed to get her up here, but then the dippy Social Worker talked Dad into the facility she's at right now. IT's a rat hole! GRRRRrrrr.

GRrrr it stole my Sunday post, AGAIN! This is getting irritating. I did answer you, 1, just don't know where it's at.

Sorry to hear about the mess involving your mom's move. Had you spoken to them about wanting to transfer your Mom up near you beforehand? If so, I don't blame you for getting upset, they shouldn't do anything without consulting family. What is taking them so long, that's ridiculous, but you know in your heart, it'll happen as it should. Stay strong, I'm here if you want to talk. *hugs*

Hopefully this day will be better for you!

Saturday – on the way to see Mom again early this morning. Yesterday was replete with more drama than I care to have repeated.

Short version is Mom was supposed to be transferred to a facility near their home in IL. I was upset about it because was working on getting her in a rehab facility up here so I could help Dad. GRRRrrr.

Dad called late in the afternoon – she’d not been transferred. I am just livid

We just got back from IL and it is late. It was NOT a real great day. ** SIGH**

1-Take it easy, my friend *hugs* drive carefully and I'll keep you all in my prayers. I know how you feel about posts, mine vanished from the day before, too. Concentrate on what's going on down there, and think positive, things will work out, but I'd be frustrated, too.

Zak: YAY, nice job of what you chose to use the certificate for, it sounds like a really helpful book! You know why I keep trying? Because I KNOW one of these times I will do it, and I'm not doing to bad right now. Do you keep a diary and use the nutrition guide on here, and drink the water. Mainly, do you try to keep things out of the house which are tempting to you? You really have to realize that no one but you can make that decision and stick to it. Don't ever let anything or anyone dictate what's right for you. But also remember...the more you eat, the more your health will suffer. I know you have people you care about, put them first and foremost...think about what their lives would be like without you. Do you really want that? You need to live for yourself, but you also need to live for them. Show them your strength, I know it's there. Stand up and fight back, don't let anything take away your chance to be healthy, especially when you have the ability to control this. you can do this!

1 - I am sorry to hear that things are not going well with your Mother's care. She is in my prayers (as is your whole family).

I had received a gift certificate for a bookstore and finally went to use it yesterday. I ended up buying The Biggest Loser Bootcamp book. It has some really yummy sounding recipes in it that I'd like to try and also quite a few exercise plans that I may try. You don't need any equipment. Sometimes I wonder why I keep trying, I never stick with anything, but than I think I just haven't found what works for me. When I do I'll stick with it (I hope). In the last two weeks I have "found" that same ten pounds I have lost and found and lost again in the past month or two. Really frustrated with myself, but I won't stop trying. Hopefully sooner than later I will find what works for me. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Alright, I posted yesterday and it's gone, this is frustrating!!

1-I'm so glad John made it safely, it'll be a great surprise for your Parents. Glad you're feeling better, and I'm holding your Mom in my prayers. Drive safely. There are positives in that it was a clean fracture and easy to fix, that's wonderful. That's an excellent idea to have her close where you can watch the rehab and care she's getting. Not so much sucky, just not as good as the rest, ok? *HUGS*

Zak: Great job of getting out of the house, it's a good start, I hope you're able to get your walk in today! Like 1 said, even 5 minutes is a great start, you can do this, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, because WE DO!!

I've been on the phone about so many different things, I'm thinking I should be video recording this instead of writing things down, just to keep the straight. I hope you all have a great day, and keep positive, things always get better!

Thursday – Off early to see Mom. She had surgery yesterday and the surgeon was pleased. The fracture was a “clean” fracture, there was no shattered bone, so that made the “fix” easier. So . . . now it’s recuperation and that’s the LONG journey.

Right now planning to meet with the surgeon and the discharge planner to get the “ducks in a row” for arranging rehab UP HERE. I don’t quite think Dad grasps the idea that it is going to be SIX WEEKS of rehab. EVERY DAY. I would much prefer having her in a rehab facility here where *I* can keep an eye on her as well. The more eyes that are “watching” the better the care.

John came in last night!!!! HE LOOKS GREAT! So there you have it. The REALLY GOOD with the really sucky! That’s life, isn’t it!

I will be MIA till probably Friday, so thanks for all the support and I’ll update you.

1 - my heart and prayers go out to your Mom and family. I hope the surgery goes well and she has a speedy recovery.

Frank got me out of the house for a little bit today, felt good. Didn't get my walk in but will try tomorrow. Not much else to report. Have a great night everyone.

Wednesday: It was a very nice, quiet birthday. Saw the movie PHILOMENA on SHOWTiME and thought it was an excellent movie. Sad, but see it if you haven’t.

Am feeling better physically – at least keeping food down. That is a good start.

Unfortunately, very bad news late last night. Mom fell and broke her hip. Has been on Coumadin (blood thinner) so has to have Vit. K. to counteract that so surgery can be done. The Surgeon feels she’ll be ready for surgery tonight @ around 6 pm.

John is coming in from AK this evening. That is a surprise and will be good. He’ll get to see my Mom and Dad at some point.

So devastating. Prayers please!

You're welcome, 1, anything to make your day better. I will hold your Mom in my prayers that she's able to have the surgery. Stay strong, we're here for you, remember that! *hugs* and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AGAIN!!

Zak: Yes, it can be, and I try to remember to breathe...if I don't I end up on the floor *L* that's not good. You're very welcome, that's what we're here for, to support one another and help keep each other strong, and moving. I hope you're able to get out there for your walk; there are exercises you can do sitting down, check the online videos here, I was doing quite a few at first, and they really help. Good luck, hope you feel better! *hugs*

Going to be working on the project today; the one I can't mention. hehehe, but I'm getting there.

Have a great day everyone, and 1, lots of prayers for your Mom, and your entire family.

1 - glad to hear you're feeling better. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR 1, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! And mannnnnyyyyy more!

Ali - Being busy can be a good thing, but so can recuperating afterwards - breathe, in and out, in and out. *smiles*

Thank you both for the pep talk. Not sure if I was eating bad because I wasn't feeling well or if I wasn't feeling well because of eating bad. Feeling a little better today, actually got out of the house a little. If I continue to feel better I am planning on going for a walk tomorrow. I need to get up and get moving again. I hope you all have a great rest of the day...see you all tomorrow.

glad you're feeling better, 1, take care of yourself, and don't forget to get the nutrients you need to get healthy, and stay that way. Birthday? Did I tell you happy birthday yet? if not, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! (my mind took another vacation and didn't return, sorry.)

*grins* you must be delirious, 1, you're echoing your own words. *hugs* get well, soon!!

and yep, I'm breathing..otherwise I'd be down there on the floor *points down* and I think I'm still standing.....notice the "think" part. *Grin*

Have a great day everyone, and Zak, stick with it, YOU CAN DO THIS, WE KNOW YOU CAN!! Stay strong, never let anything control you, YOU CONTROL IT!! Just think of the rewards once you make it to your goal!! It's well worth it! *hugs*

Ali: Hope you get a chance to breathe.


Tuesday – well, got the flu but feeling better. Sheesh!

We were going to go out for my birthday dinner, but best to do that over the weekend when I hope I’ll feel more like food. GACK!

Zak: great job on the loss and exercising, way to go!! Ooohhh take care of yourself, sounds like you could have the flu, or perhaps the binging.. you were doing so good. you need to step up and start again, lady. no more binging, think about it like this, next time you feel the temptation. Think about how aweful you feel right now, and decide that you don't want to feel that way again. Don't let this beat you, you beat it! You can do it, come on, YOU CAN..no WE CAN!!

1: I know, could you imagine. I love snow, but dang! hope you're feeling better tomorrow, if not tonight. Get some rest, sounds like you need it *hugs*

I've had an extremely busy weekend, with the fundraiser seems all I did was run. Least I got my exercising in and all. Tough, but I did it! Have a great week ahead, everyone.

1 - I hope you are feeling better. I have been in bed all day do to horrible nausea, body aches, and a very painful headache.

I have binged the last two days, maybe that's why I'm sick today? Interesting thought. I hope everyone is staying warm, spring is on the way. Can't wait.

Ali; it certainly could be worse. We could have all that snow that Boston has!

Good for you for returning home. I find that socializing after funerals is very caloric!

You’re right, exercises will definitely warm you up!

Zak: We are having flurries right now, too. Nothing bad.

Kudos on the loss this week. That’s awesome.

Hello everyone!

It's a little warmer here than yesterday (by about 7 degrees) and it just started snowing. Your right Ali it could be a lot worse. Not much to report on today, had a loss on the scale this week so happy about that. Exercised three time this week, yea! Trying to stay warm and think happy thoughts (namely Spring is on its way) Have a great rest of the day everyone.

It's not bad here, today, cold, wind blowing, snowing, but not bad, I keep figuring it could be worse, and has been, so I'll take it.

I hope you have a great day and it only gets better. and remember, get up and get doing something, I always have to keep telling myself that. No matter how I feel, get doing something, otherwise I'll resort to eating just because I'm bored, and I don't need to do that.

This morning I was quite proud of myself...I normally would have gone to the church after the funeral, just to sit and eat, but I didn't. Instead I came home and now I'm here. I didn't get the chance to do my exercises this morning, so I'm going to do them after I get off here. Besides, the way I see it, I'll warm myself up after being out in the cold.

have a great day, and remember, carry that smile along with you, it'll warm someone else up, too, in this cold weather. emoticon

Friday – since it’s still bitter cold, relegated to just being outdoors long enough for Mr. Spot to complete his chores and then onto the treadmill, stepper and house walking.

It’s Friday! That’s a very good thing!

Ali: Thanks! My body lets me know if I haven't done what I'm supposed to do, so glad to have the back up of the treadmill and the stepper. It's -3 here w/wind chill of -14. But nice and warm here . . . in the house!

Thursday – continues bone chilling, but doing all right. Really not outdoors much at all. Just too cold. Have had a fire in the fireplace each night which has helped warm things up a bit. Right now it is -14F, actual temp (don’t even wanna know what the wind chill is!) Too cold!

So, house walking, treadmill, stepper and I am set!

Yep, definitely can do it, together, and we won't back down. Heck, would we let someone else, beat us up? HECK NO, and we won't let our weight do that to us either. We're going to fight back at it and never let it defeat us. Treat it as you would a bully and fight back, stay strong, and defeat that bully! We can do this, let US be the hero, and an example to others that BULLIES NEVER WIN!!

Glad to hear your parents are doing fine, 1, and keeping warm...best thing to do in this weather, but then today isn't bad at all, at least not here. :)

Have a wonderful day, everyone! HUGS ALL AROUND!!

Wednesday – Walked only 15 minutes outdoors. Too much for Mr. Spot so used my treadmill and stair stepper.

Called to check on my parents and they’re fine. Staying warm and not going out. That’s a wise idea.

ZAK: Alright, Zak, way to go, any exercise is great, so a pat on the back for you!! YAY!! That is wonderful, it shows it's working your body if it was hard, so good for you, I'm proud of you, keep up the great work. I've been pushing it, too, been getting in my two videos, too. Let's do this together, along with 1, and we'll get there, yes we will!! ^5 (((((Zak, 1))))))


1: Paradise...what's that? I do have to say, though, with me loving winter, I am loving this; please don't hit me *S* I guess I'm just the type who loves weather, no matter what it is. I've missed Winter, I'll take life no matter what the weather is. :) Just glad to be alive!! I agree with you, 1, any exercise is worth it!! Poor Mr. Spot, our daughter puts Gator's boots and sweater (which isn't a sweater, but a coat we got him for Christmas) on him. He still loves going out and playing in the snow, but he's 5..or is it, 6, now. Lots younger than Mr. Spot, Love him while you can, but I'll bet both Mr. Spot and Sierra still have some "pup" left in them, right? Still love them all, no matter what.

I'm keeping warm, have to, right? That's a great positive about exercise, it helps us keep warm!!

Have a wonderful evening and a great tomorrow, too! ((((((((((((((( to you all!! ))))))))))))))))))

Tuesday – Another cold day in Paradise. Hope you are all staying warm. At least no precip this time. But we are supposed to get snow Tues. night thru Friday. UGH But on the hand, not supposed to be a lot. So, for that I am grateful.

Waiting patiently (well, maybe not so much) for Spring!

Zak: Jessica Smith’s workouts are good, Zak! So, you chose well. Sometimes I have to squeeze my exercise appointment in, too, but it’s worth it.

Mr. Spot – NOT liking this weather, In and out. He did do a quick walk yesterday with me, but I seriously doubt he’s going to today. But I can’t say I blame him @ almost 14. Poor bubba! When he was a pup he used to love to play in the snow and cold.

Stay warm, ladies. It’s gonna be frosty!!!

I didn't get my walk in today like planned but I did do a Jessica Smith Fitin15 exercise video on YouTube. It was hard and I had to bring it down to just a march a couple of times but I did better than last time so Yea! improvement! Next planned walk is Wednesday but I have a couple of appointments so I will need to try to squeeze it in - if need be I'll do another video. I really want to get the walk in though so maybe I'll go early to do that. I hope you all have a great Tuesday, keeping warm. How is Mr. Spots doing in this cold? It doesn't see to bother Sierra to much she still lollygags outside sometimes. Blessings. (((((hugs)))))

Glad to hear your visit with your Mom and Dad went so well, 1, how wonderful. I have trouble drinking a lot of water, I think it's something you have to get started on and never let go, otherwise it's hard to do and stick with it. Our son went to IL on Saturday to check out trains and said there were whiteout conditions in some places then. Glad you made it back hom safely. YAY Refunds!!

Zak, way to go, you can so this, I'm sure you will. Yes, increasing a little bit at the time, the gradual way of doing things is best. You'll get there, guaranteed!!

Like 1 said, Let's make Monday magnificent!!! YAY!

Monday – continues cold. Not going to warm up anytime soon it would seem!

Mom was in good spirits yesterday when I talked with her. She really enjoyed the visit and the food I prepared. I am very thankful that she has not had any GI issues now in 4 days.

Otherwise, a return to the work week schedule.

Onward! Let’s make Monday magnificent.

1 - glad to hear Mom is doing better. Adult day care sounds like a good compromise, I hope your Dad thinks so too. A refund? Awesome! Something to look forward to.

I'm going to try to get in a walk tomorrow. I'm thinking of increasing my distance a little (one lap), I have to do it slowly because of my feet. But slow is better than not at all. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a great start to the week.

Sunday – Good visit with Mom and Dad. Mom was doing well. She had no GI issues today which was good. She does NOT drink enough water and I believe was having GI issues due to that. Anyhow she ate well today. I don’t think she’s going to drink more water as I encouraged her to, but at least I told her to.

Encouraging Dad to consider Adult Day Care. Gave him some names of places in the area. He will not move here, so he needs SOMETHING. I am going to give him till Wednesday and we’ll re-visit the topic. He needs the respite!

HORRID almost white out conditions on the way to IL. But clear sailing coming home. Thank goodness.

Got our taxes completed. We get a refund. Wahoo!

HUGS

Just got back from our visit. Mom and Dad were in good shape. Ideally I would love it if they'd move here, but just no movement in that direction. Am now working on Dad to get Mom in adult day care maybe 2 days/week for respite! She was very cooperative and in good spirits today. She'd been sick w/GI issues most of this week, but ate well today. Has to drink more water, but don't see that happening either. DANG!

So, TIRED, but it's a good tired. Catch up with you lovelies tomorrow.

HUGS

Thanks Ali. I am glad I am over it too. It's disappointing when you get into a binge like that and gain all of the weight you've lost back again. But as long as I keep working at it, and I will, it will make a difference.

1 - I hope you enjoy your visit. We're heading down to see my Mom again on Tuesday. She bought a new computer and needs us to set it up for her. Two visits in two weeks - yea!

Not much going on in my neck of the woods. I walked at the mall today after dropping my step son off at work. Wasn't going to but my son encouraged me. Told me he'd be disappointed if I didn't go, so I went, and I'm glad I did. Have a great rest of the weekend.

1: Isnt that the truth, 1, and so calming, I love every bluebird, every sunflower I see, they always make me smile. One other thing that has happened a LOT especially when we were going to the funeral was the song "Piano Man" by Billy Joel came on. It had also played on the way home from the house the day he passed, and I heard it 3 more times between those days. That song was my Dad's absolute favorite. It made me smile when I heard it, especially so many times when, being an older song, it's rarely heard on the radio. I know that was Dad, I just know it.

Drive carefully and have a wonderful trip!

Zak: You sound like us, we don't do much for Valentine's Day either, my husband will take me out to eat, but other than that..he don't like movies anymore (falls asleep during them), an well, not much else to do that he'd want to do. Ooohhh that sounds good, and See I knew you could do it!! So glad to hear you're over the binge eating, that's wonderful! I'm so happy for you and the loss, GREAT! You make me proud, Zak, keep up the great work!

Good morning! Frank is taking me out to breakfast today for Valentines Day since he works tomorrow - a very long day 5 a.m. until 6 or 7 p.m. We really don't do much for VD, I was surprised he was taking me to breakfast. We're going to Perkins so I will have an omelet made with Egg Beaters and a bunch of veggies. I had a loss this week so I'm happy about that...I think I'm over the binge eating I was doing. I hope you all have a great day and weekend - stay warm!

So cool the messages given -- for you with bluebirds and sunflowers.

1-So glad to hear your Mom is still doing well, that's fantastic news! Isn't that such a healing feeling, to find something like that which meant something to your Brother? How wonderful. For me, it's always bluebirds or sunflowers. Even in the winter I can walk into some place and find them. The year he passed, that following Christmas I walked into a floral shop and right in front of me, about 6'wide, was a wreath..filled with, you got it, sunflowers and a single bluebird. Talk about a message. And we've had so many more bluebirds than ever before. We rarely had them around our house, but since my Dad passed, we have them all over, and I love it. In fact, I think you saw the photo I took of one that landed on the fake sunflower my Mom gave me, right in front of the front door. I know he's around, without a doubt. You're right, they'd want us to smile, laugh, and do everything they would be doing, so that's what I do, and I'm sure you are. They are in a far better place, I know that. But, you know, we still miss them and shed tears once in a while..and that's alright. *HUGS*

You're welcome, 1, don't know abaout being the best, but I like to try sometimes. *HUGS HUGS HUGS*

Zak: Thank you, I understand exactly what you mean; my Dad was my best friend and my biggest supporter, too. My Mom always sides with my younger brother and sister, but I could always count on my Dad to be there for me. I no longer have that so I just gave up talking about anything regarding disputes with either of them, with my Mom. I always know she'll side with them, I feel better that way. That is so cool, that brown spot shaped like a heart, how wonderful. He left something special, just for you..that is so beautiful. Yep, I can't wait...even a second in heaven is more time than what a lifetime is to us.:)

We didn't get any snow, just the cold wind blowing, but the sun is shining, and I'm so happy for that.

Have a beautiful day, everyone, and yes, think of the memories and joy we had, and will have once again!

Ali - I am so sorry for your loss. It will be seven years since my Dad passed in July. It is a loss that still is very painful. He was my best friend and biggest supporter. I talk to him often and swear I can sometimes hear him talking back, telling me it will be ok. After he passed I noticed a brown spot on my leg (I swear it wasn't there before - maybe it was but I never noticed it), it's shaped like a heart (it's small but you can see it clearly) and I took this as a sign from my Dad. I know it sounds silly but it helps cheer me up when I see it, it reminds me of him. I like your idea about sitting some place quiet and just remembering. The weirdest things remind me of him - a man with a beard (or belly) like his, the way someone smiles, or something I hear someone say. He was taken way to early, but I know I will see him again and it will be like no time has passed.

1 - that is so cool that you find the pennies! We got about 3 inches of snow last night (I think). Lil Frankie shoveled last night, this morning he said it doesn't even look like he shoveled. Oh well gets me out into the fresh air.

I hope everyone is having a great day and I hope we all can look back on our loved ones that have passed and feel the love and not the pain.

Wednesday – well we’ve made it this far! Yeah! Had a dusting of snow overnight but nothing major. JUST BONE CHILLING COLD, though. So, walked on the treadmill and poor Mr. Spot – well, just enough time outdoors to do his “thing” then back indoors to curl up in his bed!

Mom is continuing to do all right, so pleased with that.

You know me well! I take daily walks (with the exception of when it’s icy or snowing too badly) and that is MY time to just be with my thoughts. I talk to and think about my brother, my grandmothers, my grandfathers, and others dear to me who have passed. You know, it’s funny. On my walks often (this is weird) I’ll find a penny, a single penny. I KNOW it’s a sign from my brother most definitely (he collected coins but loved pennies). That is just the best feeling to find a penny! I know he’s talking back to me!

DEFINITELY I smile when I think of John. That’s what he would want for sure. Never wanted any part of pity and I know he doesn’t want me to grieve, because he is in a far better place!

HUGS and thanks, Ali, for sharing. You’re the best! HUGS HUGS HUGS

1, you know you could just go somewhere quiet, (if you have a woods nearby, a field, a stream) and sit, close your eyes, and see your brother, and do just that. I only go there because, well..it just is more comforting to me. Since your brother is so far away, maybe that's the second best thing. Plus you'd have the chance to just get away from everything and be alone for a while, which is always good. Yes, your brother is definitely your Angel, too. If you look around you'll see signs of him, just like I do of my Dad. It's amazing the things we miss when we're not watching.

I hope you find a little comfort in what I say, it helps to share the sorrow of loss with someone who's been there at nearly the same time. Thank you for sharing, I had forgotten that your brother's loss was so close to my Dad's; date wise (not years)

Have a wonderful day, and smile, because I know my Dad, and I'm sure, your Brother, would love to see that! emoticon

Ali: emoticon emoticon It's difficult when you loose someone you treasure. But YOUR DAD definitely is your angel and is smiling down on you. I always remember that about my brother when I feel lonely for him. I just think that is so wonderful that you read to your Dad. Wish my brother were close enough to do that. But that's for another day.

HUGS

Dang, I looked at the day I was here (thinking it was Sunday) and I couldn't believe it was the 6th..seriously?? I swear I'm losing my mind sometimes!

Zak: Hi, I'm doing good, just losing it all of a sudden, glad ou're doing better.


1: *hugs* I'm sorry about your brother's passing, I don't think I realized that, or did I (see what I mean about the mind). My Dad passed 3 years ago today. You have brought your brother honor in more ways than just the food and name, I'm sure. By living for him, growing as you have, and never forgetting. I'm sure your son knows all about him, as do others, as you're telling us now. That is wonderful, and I'm so happy to hear about all the things you do. It brought tears to my eyes because of today being the 3rd anniversary for me.

I went to the cemetery; between other things, and read to my Dad as I have done since he passed; and though I had a meeting I had to leave early for, I came back after and made sure I finished reading the chapter. I also brought one of the flowers from the bouquets I made for our daughters wedding and left it there for him to enjoy. Our daughter's Bengal Cat had 7 kittens, and I even suggested she name one of them (because they're keeping one) Hanna, in memory of Dad. His middle name was Johan and he was so proud of his Norwegian heritage and his middle name.

I miss his laughter, joking, teasing, even the stories he used to repeat over and over...his smile, the way his blue eyes used to twinkle so you knew when he'd just done something to pick on someone else. He was such a wonderful human being. But I also know he is still around and knows I love him as much as he loved me. He's still my best friend, and I will see him again someday. He is my guardian angel, my sunshine in the darkness, but most of all, my Dad.

Have a nice day, everyone. *hugs*

Tuesday – getting all the information together for our taxes. UGH I am pretty organized, though, so most everything is in order.

Sun not up yet, but not expecting precip today and should have some sunshine! Till later . . . snow flurries. Wahoo!

Mom had a good sleep and sounded MUCH better. Dad sounded relieved. Me too!

1 - I am happy to hear your mom is feeling better. I hope she continues to feel well.

I found a product that I am ga ga over. Vitatops. They are so good and it's a healthier option for satisfying my sweet tooth. They're only 100 calories but are so decadent. They're a little pricey (anywhere from $1.29 to $1.49 per muffin) so I won't be having them often but when I am really craving something sweet this will do the trick. I hope everyone is having a great day!

Monday – Mom had been ill from early Sunday morning to this evening. Sounds like it’s food poisoning, but she felt much better this evening. I am relieved with that, but told Dad she HAS to drink. She did eat an egg and some toast this evening, so that’s an improvement.

Monday and back to work week routine. Got lots of cooking done yesterday, so it will be easier!

Zak: That's great! Yes, do it consistently and it will be helpful AND feel less "unnatural" to do it. I have been maintenance and still measure and weigh, because portions have a way of quickly getting out-of-proportion.

Did something today that I don't recall ever doing before....I used a measuring cup to measure out my ice cream. We had a mashed cauliflower, cooked spinach, chicken, bowl topped with pomegranate seeds. I also topped my ice cream with them - delicious! Now I know I can't have ice cream every night but I was in my goal range and had enough for some ice cream and thought what the heck. But I was very proud of myself for measuring it up...usually it would have been yeah that looks about right and it ends up being 4 servings. It is going to take some getting use to, measuring everything. But I think my biggest challenge will be doing it long enough to actually see and feel a difference. Blessings and hugs to all.

1 - I am sorry for your loss. What a way to honor him by naming your son after him. I hope you are blessed today with many wonderful memories.

I found a woman on YouTube and FB that has lost on WW and posts videos and motivational stuff...I really like her channel and page - she has some really great ideas. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are ready for the week ahead.

Sunday - this is always a difficult day for me. It is the 33rd anniversary of my dear brother’s passing. I must say, I have grown so much mentally, spiritually and physically since that event, so I am sure he’s proud of his big sister. LOVE you John (yes, my son was named after him.)

The sun is out so that is a huge help. Going to go out for a long walk. Then DH and I are going to go out for a ride to a local park.

Tonight I am preparing ribs in my brothers honor. His favorite food. That’s the last meal we shared together. He always put hot sauce on them, so I am going to do the same.

HUGS and always hug your family a little tighter and let them know you love them.

1: Oh I know, that's what always gets us, the wind, even in the summer it can be downright cold!! Drives me insane, but we live through it. Tell DS that he can keep those temps, I'll keep what I've got. *L* And a heatwave next week, I'm like you, I'll take it, too!

Zak, Sounds like a great deal, good luck with it, keep that attitude going and you'll do wonderfully, I'm sure. I'm so glad you'll have people to lean on in real life, I'm sure that'll work out well with you. stick to it, and you'll be at your goal in no time.

Have a nice weekend, and smile, even if it's cold out!

Friday – Well, Jason has a day off, so we’ll see what the day brings! Nice to have him home. The weather is actually supposed to warm up. Ok, well it’s all relative. Right now it’s 16 degrees and we’re supposed to reach 24F. I’ll take it!

Zak: That's what I remember from WW too. . . had a great leader who was motivating and walked the talk!

I also liked the face-to-face support . . . it helped a lot.

There are WW foods in the supermarket (not too sure what I think of that), but unlike other nutrition centers, they don't make you buy their food. It's all about educating you about what you're eating to adapt it to your needs.

Happy for you, Zak. I think you'll like it.

1 - yikes! I'll take our temps any day of the week over the ones your DS is dealing with.

Ali - Right now WW is having a special - if you pay for two months and lose 10 pounds in those two months they will refund your dues (or pay for the next two months worth of membership) The cost is either $15 a week, $45 a month or $115 for three months. (those are the prices for the meetings, if you pay by the month or three months you also get the etools - online membership, as well) (at least those are the prices listed for my zip code) My DS kicked in the extra money so I was able to pay for three months (positive thinking here I will lose the 10 pounds and get two more tor free for a total of five months for free)

I went to a meeting last night and it was very uplifting, as a group (about 30 people) they lost 46 pounds. The leader has lost 130 pounds and has kept it off for 3 years, she is very energetic. There were a wide range of ages and sizes which was nice. I think I'm going to try it. I figure if I start putting a little bit away now I should be able to afford another three month membership after the five. (fingers crossed) I hope you all have a great night and a blessed Friday!

Thursday – well, cold, cold, cold. BUT no snow again, so I’ll live with it!

DS called. It’s -32F there. OMG. Ok, now that makes OUR weather look like a heat wave.

Crock pot going, no shoveling, sun out. Good day!

Honestly, I don't know what the fees are now, as it's been years since I went to WW, but if you look on line you'll find the information. There are usually specials, too. As I recall, when I attended back in the 70's, it was $1 a meeting. I am very sure it's changed since then. LOL

Check out their site, though. It's worth it.

Cold enough for you? The wind was what gets ya!

Zak: My mom does water walking and she loves it; the resistance you can get, combined with the warm water, it's fantastic. I do it in the pool during the summer and it's incredible the workout you can get. I wish I could afford to go to the Y to do it, but I can't. I'm so glad you had the chance to go see your Mom and had Christmas with her. What an amazing gift, I've never tried, it, but hey, it's worth a try, I wish you the best of it, it's worth a try, keep us updated! I've heard a lot of great success stories with WW. (((((HUGS)))))

1: I know, me too, and yes, poor little guy! I love the Field Museum, it's got so many amazing things, and yes, he took some beautiful pictures of the windows, just can't get him to download them here, otherwise I'd show you. Theya re beautiful! I'm going to check out the Louis Comfort Tiffany when I get off here, thank you. Is WW expensive, 1? (((((1)))))

Have a wonderful evening, Ladies, and take care of yourselves..Have a beautiful tomorrow, too.

Ali: Very good news that your headache is gone. PHEW. Yeah, I am sure that poor woodchuck was stressed, and that combined with holding it so close to his face . . . well, DUH!

When I grew up in IL, we went to the Field Museum in Chicago all the time. They had an exhibit of Frank Lloyd Wright’s furniture AND stained glass. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Such gorgeous stained glass pieces. And also toured to see some Frank Lloyd Wright homes. The architecture and the stained glass were just stunning!

Louis Comfort Tiffany also designed stunning glass art. AND jewelry.

Zak: I did WW eons ago. It’s structured differently now, but I would encourage you to check it out. They have information on-line as well. Obviously one advantage is face-to-face support. Anyhow, I hope you at least get to go to get a “feel” for it.

Bottom line is, the worst that can happen is that WW isn’t a fit for you. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Hugs dear ladies!

Ali - glad to hear your headache went away. I love stained glass windows, they are so beautiful - I hope you get your wish and he took lots of pictures.

1 - Way to go for getting out and walking! I wish I could get out in this cold and walk - I am a picky walker, I don't like it to hot or to cold. You are an inspiration.

Went to see my Mom for Christmas this past weekend and for a present she offered to pay for two months of Weight Watchers. I am not sure if that is something I want to do. It sounds interesting but I am unsure about how it works. I am thinking of going to a meeting tonight to ask the leader some questions - maybe that will help me make up my mind. Maybe this is what I need to get me back on track? What do you ladies think, do you have any opinions? Have a great night and a wonderful Thursday. (((((hugs)))))

That's for sure, 1, today I actually didn't have a headache, which was such a relief!! And I know, wasn't that hilarious, but I'm glad he was alright and the groundhog was, too. It wasn't the poor groundhogs fault, he just wanted to be inside where it was warm again. *L*

You're right, glad there wasn't a lot of snow to shovel, or drive in. I had to go into town, and it wasn't too bad. Our road was plowed pretty good, and our son went to Iowa to go to the Wartburg Seminary. Apparently they have some beautiful stain glass windows and I'm hoping he took lots of pictures of them.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and a better tomorrow!! Keep warm!

Wednesday – More snow yesterday evening – 3 in. So that’s not bad. Still had to shovel, but it wasn’t heavy, wet snow.

Otherwise, hope to have a day or 2 without snow! That would be nice.

Feeling good, despite the shoveling. Actually got out for a walk. That felt good!

I sure did see that! LOL What the yutz was he thinking holding that poor rodent so close to his face! But he’s all right, the groundhog is all right and that’s what counts.

Sorry haven't been around, have had the worse headache (no, not migraine, don't get those, just one that hurts like heck and won't go away). Hate it because when I try to exercise for some reason, I can't even make it through the entire program, I get wore out and my head just pounds, so I try doing it in parts (6 minutes each). Gets frustrating because I'm not sure how much good that's actually doing me, but at least I'm doing it. I hope this goes away soon.

We got about 9" of snow, and I do love it; looking outside and seeing how beautiful it looks, I've missed the snow, and we're supposed to get tonight/tomorrow, which figures. I'm supposed to go look for my dress for our daughter's wedding. Oh well, if it's meant to be, I'll manage.

Hope everyone's doing well.

1, glad you got the snow cleared, didn't you see, the groundhog bit the mayor, thought that was funny!

Zak, 1's right, write down what's bothering you on your Spark Page that's what's great about that. It gives you the opportunity to figure out what's going on that's causing the problems and to deal with it, and others are able to help you with it, too.

Good you got to visit your Mom. We had to postpone that. But THEY got even more snow than us . . . around 20 inches. OMG!

1 - We were lucky, we were suppose to get 2 - 6 inches and we got nothing! I was thankful for that because we were able to go visit my Mom. The visit went well, she seemed to be doing better. But like all of us she has her good days as well as her bad ones.

Still struggling with my eating. Trying to focus on other areas, seems to work some days but not all, but it's a start. I hope you all have a great Tuesday. (((((hugs)))))

Positive thoughts lead to positive actions which yield positive results.


Remember, persistence not perfection.

Cruddy day yesterday, too, but today the sun is out. That helps.

Have you looked @ the Inspirational Videos? They help as well.

Sunday – Fortunately got everything I needed to do completed yesterday. Looks like today is going to be a shovel-the-snow day. But we’re prepared. Just hope it stops soon. Have about 7 in. already, and expecting up to a foot now. I believe it. And they’re changed to forecast to include a blizzard warning. Well DUH! Winds whipping the snow sideways! **SIGH** Stay safe and warm.

Here’s some suggestions to help with the “munchies” during the Super Bowl:

1. During actual “play” if you’re in the habit of having to eat during the whole game like I am, just eat celery and drink water (you can make it festive by using ice in it or having sparkling water). When the commercials come on watch them with new eyes and see how they are written specifically for your inner child! Use the time-outs to really enjoy your treats you’ve made.

2. Try what I call the “vicarious” bite (I talk at length about it in my book The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!). What you do is watch a pizza or snack commercial but take a bite of celery and using your imagination, blend the chewing that’s going on in your mouth with the action that’s going on in the commercial. You’ll be surprised what you’ll learn.

3. Enjoy the game and stay as alert as the quarterback after the snap. This conscious mindful eating takes practice.

4. In order to lose unwanted weight, we have to change the behavior that put the weight on. The Super Bowl is the third biggest feast day in America! Guess who’s behind that? But we can have our snacks and eat them too, we just need to be awake and aware when we do and we won’t turn a football game into a feast.

Yes, I find tracking, measuring and weighing for portion control are the 2 keys that help me. Good luck!
