I see no one has been on this board since May 10...and here is it August 11. I've been off since February and am revisiting all my old haunts...lol. I know summer is busy but lets get the party in full swing! I haven't been on since February, but signed in today 2 lbs lighter than I was in February. I could mourn over the pounds I could have lost from then until now, but I'm not going to, cause at least I didn't put on 10 extra to take off. How's everyone else doing from this group?

just wanted to pop on our team and say hi to you all. Hope you haven't all become "ghost members", but are still pressing onward, no matter at what pace it might be. I have moved back to NY form Maine and oh so slowly getting back into the routine of things. I start a new job in 2 weeks, I am slowly making progress with my weight. But have made alot of progress with my lifestyle and how aware i am of what i eat, what i do for excerise , and how i balance them into my life. for me that is a such a big step..one the scale will never show...but without it the scale also would never move downward!!!
Best of luck to all of you

hi everyone it has been a while since i have posted on the team. i am still hanging in there. i check in with sparkpeople just about everyday which keeps me focused and reminds me to try and keep on track. unfortunately i haven't had much more weight loss, but i feel good and still watching what i eat. the trick for me is to make sure i have the proper snacks in the house since i don't have a regular eating pattern to my days.

i have posted some new photos on my sparkpage. i have been getting my exercise by doing outdoor work, but the black flies are here and they are wicked. an adirondack thing.

hope everyone is doing well and i will talk with you all soon.

Yep Sparky, you're probably right. Still nice to pop into the 'home' team to check in and see if anyone is hanging out. Weekend was so stinkin' busy that I barely made it to spark at all.
Hope your weekend was great.

I love springing ahead and enjoying the extra light.

I hate adjusting to the time change though. My bird was like hey..why are you waking me up so early, usually he is up and waiting for me to get his breakfast and water ready.

Boy, I do dislike the time changes. Takes me a week each spring and fall to get myself acclimated to it. And my pets were looking at me this a.m. like I was crazy - "why are you getting ready for work so early" is what they were looking like. Lucky little critters were still all curled up on the end of my bed while I was flying around getting ready. Next time I want to be the pet and they can go to work!

March Madness :) Way to go Cathy! I am doing o.k. as well - actually I started Spark in November knowing that I needed to adopt some healthy eating habits and loose some pudge before I attempted to quit smoking. Well, plan in action, I did loose and gained better habits, I quit smoking in January and am trying so hard to keep the weight off and loose more! Well, I do have to say that SPARK and it's MEMBERS are the only reason I've accomplished so much!! - I was even "elected" by peers to become the leader of CLASSY QUITTERS team - Woo Hoo - now that I wrote this all out - I will edit the I'm doing o.k. - I'm doing great :) :) :) :) :)

So, to follow in Mo's vein - how is "us" doing so far in the month of March?
I'm doing ok, not fabulous but not bad either - steady I suppose. I've given myself a good shake up because recently my health has not been where I want it. I cleaned out the refridgerator and filled up the trash can! Nothing but fresh and healthy stuff in that appliance now!

Sparky, that's just plain rude. It couldn't really happen here, as, well, except for a small minority, we're pretty much all immigrants (or returnees, depending on how we look at it) from outside Israel.

And since we in Jerusalem live in what's considered to be a holy city by three major world religions, we get LOTS of tourists -- real tourists, like, the kind who come and do touristy things :)

Ziggy, I'm with you -- March is gonna be a good month! Go us!

Sparky I visited San Diego a couple of summers ago. It was quite pleasant weather-wise but the people drive like maniacs!! While we thankfully did not have an accident the 5 times we were practically broadsided on the freeway was enough for me!!

Maureen, it's funny you mention "tourists" - I loved the weather in San Diego, but I have to say that the people there were kinda mean if you weren't a "native" I had like one friend at work and she wasn't a "native" either - no one else really wanted to talk with us - weird, huh? The reason I was there was because my then boyfriend was in the Navy and stationed there, but even that was not a good "reason" to be living there as far as the "native" San Diego'ans????

Also kinda funny, I had never been in a car accident until I moved there - got rear ended 3 times - every time I was stopped at a STOP sign - they don't REALLY stop....what was I thinking??? :)

All that said tho - I would love to go back for a VACATION, but don't think I'd live there again :)

Exactly, Sparky!

We can always tell who the tourists are when the weather's in the 60s, by who's wearing shorts and t-shirts, and who's still wearing long clothes and scarves :)

LOL Maureen!! I used to live in San Diego for a short time. I remember this MN girl moving there and for the first few months wearing shorts and short-sleeve shirts when it was 65 - looking at others, like: "WHAT?" it is SOOOOOOO warm!!! Then, about 3-4 months after moving there I was wearing a jacket when it hit 65 :) :)

LOL, Sparky!

I've still only been in Israel a few years, so when the folks around me are freaking out because it's so "cold," I'm still like, "what? THIS is cold? Yeah, right."

Even though my blood has now thinned and I actually agree that it's cold... I still remember those -10 mornings on my way to work or school... blah.

Lv, stay warm and safe!

I am hesitant to say I am tired of winter, 'cause spring in Israel is about six minutes long... then suddenly it's hot as heck and nearly unbearable.

But I TOTALLY remember those horrible Michigan winters and wishing for spring... so I feel for all you midwesterners :)

Hope everyone has a great day today. It was 10 degrees early this morning & it is supposed to get to 34 degrees the entire day here in Colorado. Congrats on winning your 9ball match. The scales WILL go down. You are so close to your goal so it will go slow toward the end so I've heard.

How is everyone this morning, pretty cold here in NY but the sun is shining and I won my firt 9ball match of the new season.
Now if I could only get the scales to go down.

Hope everyone is staying focused and reaching for the goal.

Have a great day.

Hi LV. Thanks.
Today didn't start out so good, I slept in 45 minutes & was in such a rush to get to work. I was bummed I couldn't do my exercise bike, my son said it's ok cause I do it daily. So sweet of him.
THe rest of the day was so-so.
I'm gonna do a chant here soon to recenter and hope it works, no more negativity! I'll chant for you too!
Hope your day is better! emoticon

Hi D2, my eating habbits are like yours. 3 meals during the week & 2 on weekends. Seems like on weekends I eat later that normal & I guess it is kind of like combining a lunch/dinner. There is a 'brunch' for breakfast/lunch, is there a word for lunch/dinner? emoticon

I agree - those pre-made "healthy" foods are loaded with sodium. I make my own lunches for work by making a little extra at diner time and then having it for lunch the next day. I can control my nutritional intake really well that way. Now, weekends, that is different. I try to eat a later breakfast and then have a piece of fruit for lunch and then dinner. Three meals during the week and two on the weekend are the only way I can stay on track.

Good job on the sodium LV. You never realize how much of it we get until we start tracking it. I haven't cooked with salt for years (my father is on sodium restricted diet & I tease my hubby he likes food with his salt) but was totally surprised how much we get without knowing it. I tried those Lean Cuisennes meals for work, took one bite & knew they were loaded with sodium. I'd rather not eat them for that fact.

Thanks so much.

It will be very hard not to weigh in everyday but...
The sodium, I have cut down so much, unless its already in the foods, I used to use sooo much, just amazing to me how much I have changed in 2 months.

LV - Sounds like a great plan on salt control. Also, the adjustment for your weigh-ins is great thinking! Daily weigh-ins are difficult to account for our body's water fluctuations.

Thanks.

I bought some Low Sodium V8 juice, I figured that way I can get more servings (2) of vegetables and better on the sodium than the regular V8.

I am thinking that I am only going to way myself every other day, that way if I go up one day, I may not even know...psyching myself out I guess, lol.

Sorry I didnt realize there were responses.
I guess the scale sends some sort of signal and it measures the wgt, BF and Water %, based on information I put into it when I bought it. Its put out by Taylor.

This yo-yo of wgt is driving me nutty....I have done well w/sodium until last nite, waaaaayyyyy over. I tried to shock and go under in calories, guess I shocked too much, lol

D2, that's a bummer about the weather in Florida.

Cathy, good for you on all those awesome successes!!

I miss football. I don't have a television, and the stupid NFL charges a FORTUNE to watch the games through the Internet. (As opposed to MLB, which has a very reasonable price)

hello all - i haven't posted here in a while, but i have been making progress.

i have finally dusted off the treadmill and have done 2- 1/2 hr. walks burning 350 calories.

i have reached the second notch on a belt that would barely go around me

i have posted achievements on my fitness.

i am keeping track of my water intake

i have finally learned how to use the food tracker and i am definitely on track with my food intake.

i will be weighing myself at the end of the month and i hope it is all good.

and most of all, i am expecting the giants to win the superbowl.

My scale only does pounds also. I know you can do the BMI online also, but How does a scale tell what is water weight? I am curious.

That is awesome Mary, loosing 3".
I just took my measurements a few days ago so I am going to wait till the end of the month to remeasure. Even if I see alittle difference would help.

Okay, I have a question...

I bought a scale a month or so ago that gives Body Fat and Water %. When I weigh myself that way my weight is less than if I just step on the scale. I am confused. Anyone know why the difference?

Mary Liz, thank you for reminding me that it's been a few days since I've posted here. I apologize -- to you guys, and to myself... 'cause I KNOW I am more motivated when I come see how you guys are doing.

Meanwhile, ML, ahem. Half a pound is AWESOME! Do not discount the importance of half a pound.

As in... there's that two sticks of butter you can imagine squished to the sides of your face... yuck.

Imagine holding a supermarket sack of something on the tip of your pinky... that half a pound would make a difference then in how long you could hold for, wouldn't it?

My friend just had a baby almost two months early, and he weighed 4.4 pounds at birth. He then lost weight... every single gram he loses before he starts gaining weight is a lot, so can you imagine if HE were to lose 1/2 a pound (G-d forbid)? And when he GAINS half a pound, hopefully he'll also be almost healthy enough to let out of the hospital.

So please remember, everyone, that every ounce you lose adds up toward those pounds. The important thing here is the healthy lifestyle... exercising... eating healthier foods in healthy portions at healthy times.

We can ALL do this! :)

I'm still here! Almost to my 60 day mark. I've lost 24 pounds so far (okay, 18 since joining) and feel like nothing can stop me! I'm learning how to run and I am just about at the point where I need some new clothes - my fiance keeps telling me that my clothes look way too baggy! I'm glad there's some others that have stuck with this - it's a great program!

Brittany - Welcome to the group. Since you have joined, what do you like best about SP?


Yes, 9,000 members is a lot in one week, however, I was informed that over 20,000 people joined on Monday and Tuesday of this week - many saw an SP segment in a program on "E"!
Now that is a lot!

I am slowly getting back on track...I am still coughing sneezing and run down, little things like laundry,dishes shopping just wipe me out!..so my work outs are not there yet but I am doing some slow walking ...I am tracking food and posting just to keep myself accountable...we'll see what tues weigh in brings...but no matter what i am still going forward...

I'm one of God's kids under construction. He's not done with me yet!
