emoticon Linda! You're right this is indeed crazy weather. We had snowflurries this morning and in March we hit almost 30C. The forsythia and the magnolias have already bloomed - everything here is about 6 weeks early!

LOL True. Tho it is actually a lot warmer than I am used to experiencing, for this time of year here in Dryden... In past years, there was often still snow on the ground...

Hi everyone!
I'm not new to Spark, but would really like to get more active and make some new friends. I think that's the biggest thing that's been holding back my success, not having people to talk to and share with about my weight loss journey.

hi! my name is Jonah, I'm a 35 year old mom of 2 little girls, and am RE-starting spark as of January 2 this year! I've already lost about 8 lbs, but more importantly, I'm enjoying the process this time around! I live in Guelph, and have told many of my friends about spark. Even when I fell off of the sparkwagon last year, it stuck in the back of my mind, and here i am again trying happily!

Hi I am Diane from the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). I am 43 married with 2 kids. I have been on sparks for a long time. I got serious in 2010 and lost a good amount of weight but gained back close to half of it. I am getting back to it again to lose what I have gained and then go from there to hopefully lose more for my long term goal. To be where I was a year ago I need to lose 50 pounds. It is alot but less then half of what I lost in 2010 so I know I can do it.
Thanks!

Hello everyone! I am from Keswick. I have been a member of Sparkpeople for approx. 1 year now. I have been consistantly working out since I joined the "28 day bootcamp" challenge on Jan 1st. I haven't lost the 10 pounds I originally set out to lose but I do feel much better now and have lost inches here and there. Right now I am involved in the "5k your way walk/run" challenge. I love this site!

Hello.

I live in the Mississauga area and am new to this diet stuff. Seems the middle age spread is spreading. Learning the calories eaten and what has been an eye opener for me.

I am starting a Meet Up for women in the Mississauga area for walking. It is a beautiful walk along the Credit River. If anyone is interested please email me for details.

Peace
Roberta

Actually my DH had to go immediately on the liquid Optifast Diet which for him was very difficult, but he got through it. The program he was on was quite different from the one you are on so I'm afraid he wouldn't be of much help - sorry!

Edwards may I ask did your hubby ever find it hard eating as many times a day in the calorie ranges they are wanting. I started the clinic in April just as I found out my new apt is infested with bedbugs and I had to go live back at my parents with only my washed clothing. Living on my own, buying my own food and not having temptations I did fine, but living at the parents, on the couch, and not being so happy about life at the moment I'm finding it really hard to follow. Does he or you have any suggestions. I'm having to eat whatever my parents purchase only becuase of money right now given the situation I'm in. Exercise is really the only way things are somewhat working out for me. Any suggestions on this would be awesome.

I think so as my sons are 31 and 34 and they never went to school in Hamilton, but my DH was attending some diet classes at Dr. Wharton's clinic a couple of years back. Sounds like you have lots of good activity worked into your week - keep it up!!!

Oh! My bad lol. Could very well be. It's been a while. emoticon

And, thanks for the welcome back.


How was everyone's weekend? My Thursday night was awesome. Had a 45 min aqua fit secession. Friday I was going through my stuff getting ready to really focus on the weekend and how I was going to manage it. It was my dad's birthday and Fri night I was taking him mom and my lil bro to the Mandarin for that and Saturday was a big party planned for him. WELL dinner went well, I went to the buffet once and to the desert once, I thought I did ok. By the time I got home I wasn't feeling too great, thought I over ate and had a dull pain in my side. Within an hour of that I turned so deathly ill Friday night I was rushed to the hospital becuase of diarrhea and fainting from the pain in my side, and vomiting, so violently in fact I was vomiting up blood every time. It was every half hour then to every hour, all night long. Saturday I felt not so hot so I rested all day and only drank water, ginger ale and freezes. Sunday I felt off but a ton better considering where I was at. I tried to eat and never thought, apparently my esophagus was raw so I ate ice cream for my meals and stuck with water. Today I'm feeling great, still have the pain on my right side but nothing like it was and I managed a cooled down Timmie's tea this morning and bagel with butter. On that note, no wheres did I manage to meet any calorie intake that would or could account for much, if I did I was sick, so hoping when I weigh in this week I'll be less of me lol.

Gotta look at the upside of it all.

This week I'm hoping, after watching my bro play baseball tonight, to walk home after that, then swim tomorrow, Wed and thurs, Fri may be a walk around Bay Front Park, may be Sat instead, who knows. May be even a bike ride. What's everyone's plans this week?

Yes Edwards, I think when we spoke last you're son was going to school out this way? (May be I'm thinking of someone else??) It's been a while but glad to be back :)

The future is unknown;
Today is a gift, that's why it's called the present.

I've been with Spark since Jan. 2008 - 4 1/2 years - wow! Were you on this People In Ontario team before? I met Sean Wharton a couple of times with my DH when he was consulting about stomach bypass surgery for diabetics and I was most impressed with him. (My DH no longer goes to Hamilton for the program as it's now covered in Toronto.)
