Hi Louisevan,
I am new to this team. I like you definition of friends. A true friend is there at all times no matter whether you are up or down. True friends are few and far between to hold them tightly and turn around and be a friend like that to another.
God bless you
Jean

I have a nephew who could use some extra income and soem extra family involvement, and I am going to call him to come and help me mulch and trim.

Stoopid arthritic ankle really limits me, though power tools DO seem to help quite a bit!

Beautiful thought, Cheryl, and forgiving is so healthy for us, truly.

So nice to see Polly, again. I have been neglecting my team!

Good morning, ONE POUND AT A TIME team.

I ran across this thought in my inbox, this morning.


Friday 1, August 2008

"In this moment you are sitting within a sea of infinite possibility. Each choice you make is a vehicle for distilling the actual from the potential.

See each experience as if it is fresh and new. With thoughtful and careful attention, you will discover that it is."

It is so true that our attitudes control our ability to see what is in front of us, let alone the possibilities beyond!

I FINALLY have a day off, after about 3 weeks. I have baked apples, and gardened and done laundry, and planned dinner, already this morning.

The weeds were just beyond me, so I weed-eatered them, rather than pulling them, just this once. Well, actually twice. I am going to do more, as soon as I recharge both batteries.

I have never made it all the way around the garden, by pulling them out I feel so powerful!



I am up another lb, but I know I was around 1200 calories yesterday, and the day before, so I know that I am just weighing too often.



Your dreams are you dreams because they are you destiny!

HUMAN GOODNESS!
There is so much of goodness, in the hearts of humankind, that we, seldom, choose to look for so we seldom ever find;we are prone to see each other in the light of what we say and the deeds we find unpleasant to our stature or our ways.
But there is a depth of goodness-in each heart of humankind-that is gift of God's creation, for our peace of heart and mind, and it's, always, there to flourish-'neath the reckless words and deeds that we choose to find upsetting to our egos, pride or creed.
We need only be forgiving of each other's words and whims to be finders of this goodness every heart contains, within, for the Lord instilled a goodness, in each heart of humankind, that is meant to be a blessing to the seeing and the blind!!

It feels so good to get back on track with things to make us reflect on thoughts we've pushed aside. I thank you all for your encouragment to put the effort out there daily once again to remind us this is one very slow process of ONE POUND AT A TIME!!!

GO TEAM GO!!! GO TEAM GO!!! emoticon

Cheryl, thank you so much for adding this thread! Seemed as if there was a void without it. As for the butter, nasty thought. How about going to Walmart and picking up a one pound weight? They seem pretty heavy when you just pick it up and think it's only one pound. Plus, one pound of fat is massive. So it's not just the weight in pounds, it's what's coming off of us too. Any more than one pound at a time is unrealistic, but we're in such a hurry for the pounds to come off. We need to remember to look at it one pound at a time.

Hey ! A pound is pretty big. Try hiding a box of four sticks of butter in your pants.

I am glad you started this (apparently again) since it is hard to go for huge amounts but when you see progress as small as a pound, you can be happy.

Lindie, be careful with that Irish jig. Just stay sure footed, wouldn't want you to hurt yourself.

Well, I gotta go for today, don't know if I will get back while at the motel, but will try.

I have gotten back into my spark "groove". I weighted in this morning, and had fish and veggies for dinner.
I'll get to the gym tomorrow, too.

I had gotten off track, but I am back!

Only gained 1 lbs for my transgressions. There is that.

I am going to get to see my grand-baby this weekend, too

How fun!

later, love,

Yes, Yes, one pound at a time is the only way to do it.
I hope I don't forget to click on this link too since I am going to be so busy yet for a while.

I do love the idea of the one day at a time concept though, that is the only way to success.

I'm with you, 1lb might not sound much, but 1lb a week is 52lbs a year, and that IS a lot

Cheryl - I love your new thread. ONE POUND AT A TIME WILL DO IT! I need a new kidney as most of you know... I'd give anything to "rush it" because I need to lose 15 more lbs. But guess what folks? Let's be realistic here.... like our Cheryl says.. we didn't gain it that fast, we won't lose it that fast either!

Yeah! Let's keep this thread alive.. burning with activity - suggestions - tips - etc....

I'm with you all.. one lb. at a time, one day at a time.

I just love our team. We're a real family here! Thanks Cheryl!

Many have asked that I restart the ONE POUND AT A TIME thread so because of those requests I am doing so.
Why is it that we want that QUICK FIX? We certainly did not put this extra weight on in a month yet we will resort to all kinds of things to try to get it off in a month, always looking for that wonder pill, super diet aide or QUICK FIX. Slow and easy is the only way to make sure it stays off and we can live that healthy lifestyle we have worked hard to reach. Toning those muscles and skin along the way assures you are going to look your best in the end.
We can challenge ourselves to death with all the ways to do this but bottom line is there are NO QUICK FIXES! It's ONE POUND AT A TIME!!
