thanks prairiecrocus knew i could rely on you i am with meg on another group which is how i knew from a thread she set up there that she was feeling down.we are all in this together and if we cant help friends when they are down,when then.as i have said before this is an awesome team and i am glad to be part of it.we are getting into the weekend any plans anyone.to be honest i havent made any plans as such as still cant move that much with out pain but do plan to try and catch up with all my e-mails and spark buddies if up to it might try and persuade an old friend to go out to eat on sunday to the resturant we used to go to every sunday with the gang(about 14 other english girls who where living over here)there is now only us two from the gang still here.we havent done that in about 9 years since we have both married and had kids.just hope the reaturant is still there lol.also hope i will be up to it.on the side though it is not as much as i had hope to loose with the trapped fluid in my body but at least it is something have lost through the op 17lbs.actually not through the op i had lost it through my own hard work but because of the build up of fluid i was getting it wasnt showing so way to go me.must go and change my weight tracker.just a shame it wasnt as much as the drs had thought they had estimated between 40 and 50lbs.NOW THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE.oh well have to just get back to doing it the old fashioned way i suppose.so back to watching what i put in my mouth and tracking i guess.anyway have a good week everyone you desearve it.

I hope that all the FitGirls are doing fine.
I'm doing O.K.
When I saw my Dr. yesterday, he asked me about
how I lost weight.
(He had been suggesting this for years !)
I told him that I had cut out all white rice
and white noodles . I didn't say more, because
I had already engaged him in other issues, like
signing the form to renew my Handicap status.
Thank goodness for SparkPeople !
We focus on what we can do, not on what we can't !

hi ladies...whats new?

i tell ya. things have been nothing but getting busier and busier. in a couple weeks my schedule will be off the hook. I will be working about 10-15 more hours a week, and starting back to school. aaaahhhh! I am very thankful for a job though :) I love where I work, so thats okay.

i have been off my diet, not good. gained a few more pounds, in which today I vow to stop drinking soda..again! don't quit quitting as they say. so i am going to make me some tea, and stick to it. i should lose those extra pounds in no time.

well i am off to see other posts. and visit some wonderful fitgirls. have a fantabulous day!

Hi guys! I'm back from vacation and exhausted! So tired that I'm having some trouble getting back into the swing of things with my exercise plan. Tomorrow is a usual run day for me so I'm hoping to get up, get out, and run!!

I hope everyone's doing well.

Have a remarkable day!

I mainly do just swimming and walking, QUEENGP !
With my MS, there are a lot of things that I cannot
do. With MS, the myelin sheath, which acts as an
insulator, has been compromised. This makes the
person quite warm, when it's not cold out !
That's why I like swimming, so much : it's always cool in the pool ! I certainly don't get overheated in the pool.Overheating is bad, because then, I find it
difficult to move ! Often, I have to stop walking,
because of overheating !

How are things going everyone?

I have so stalled. i gained quite a few pounds back, lost a few of those and now..stalled. thats okay. i am back in the right direction.

I exercised 2 days this week, better than I have been. I plan on getting my gym membership back up and running here soon. I paused it for the summer, and I feel antsy to get back in there.

What exercises do you ladies do? what's your favorite?

QUEENGP, I enjoyed my 100 minute swim ; am glad
for the accomplishment ! Of course, being in the Pool
is the best place, to avoid all this heat !

sounds like everyone enjoyed themself this weekend! its so important to do that. it helps to relax along our journey.

Karen, i used to do embroidery too, haven't done it in years (same reason raising kids). i will have to get back to that once i get through school and such. if you do go out to eat, prepare yourself first. decide what you are going to have. (the key is to stick to it..LOL)

Prairecrocus, we can definitely stick together on this one. I got up this morning and did my hour exercise..it felt great! i am back on board with it! just like a train pulling out of the station, it just takes a little effort and steam before you are going full steam ahead. :)

ladies, have a great day! i am off to work~ long day! so i will be back on here later today or tomorrow.

Genia- All the best with those 60 unwanted pounds !
I've just re-evaluated, and I think I have 50 unwanted
pounds, myself ! We can surely compare notes on how
things are going.....

On another note,
Karen, I hope and pray, that all will go well
with your operation !
Take good care !

Hi Genia, I envy you going out on the lake ...We are still in Winter and just to cold go out on the river in a boat.. We visited dear friends.. they are in their middle 80's and really not well at all ..so we took coffee,Weightwatchers almond squares, and some flowers and rocked about 10.30am
we had a lovely chat and was able to do a few things for her in the kitchen. we came home and then just vegged out ..Colin slept in his chair and I was on the PC and reading ..so we had a lovely week end..I hope everyone else did too..Cheers Susie emoticon

had a marvelous weekend with my honey. i posted a picture of us on the third most beautiful lake in the world, Torch Lake (according to National Geographic).

getting up early tomorrow to exercise! yep. no excuses this time. I have 60lbs to go, and I will do it. so I am going from 0-60 (lbs gone)...focus is the key, exercise is a tool, and FitGirls is my cheerleading team! with all that in play, I will most definitely get to my goal!

how was everyone's weekend? Karen, did you get your equipment in yet?

Also..everybody, Karen is going in for surgery this week. sending all my love to you Karen... emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon meg on the drop of a clothes size.

susie emoticon on being named a spark motivator you deserve it.

andrea let us know if you do a clothes sort out.

genia love what your friend wrote but i am afraid if i was not in the mood(which luckily with exercise i am always in the mood when i am allowed to exercise)i would back chat myself lol,not only that i would probably listen to to the back chat.

anyway i hope you all have a lovely day.i plan to do some more sewing i noticed yesturday when i was doing my wardrobe yesturday.i.i the button is a bit loose or the seam has come undone in one place etc.what is on your todays list which is not normally on it?

I love it !!
I took a huge bag of clothes up the the Blind society last week.
On going to my good clothes wardrobe(that I sorted last month) I have another bag to go!

My eldest Step Daughter is a wonderful designer and seamstress and has made many of my clothes ..
I will have to take some of them to get her to alter them because they are just to special to throw out.. Way to go Girls ... We can and are and will Do This.. for ourselves emoticon emoticon

I need to get rid of clothes too , but for some reason I hang on to them... My old clothes swim on me now...Im thinking its time to get rid of them..Good for you with getting rid of them and placing smaller clothes to motivate yourself.. Sounds like a good idea... emoticon
