Hi everyone! Hope you are all warmed up and cozy, Leslie. Clink! Happy (Sober!) New Year! The sober part makes the new year that much better emoticon

Aurlie - glad you are enjoying your time off. I don't go back until Wed. either.

Lisa, I think Leslie is right on the money about fear being a part of anger. Since it was Mom's glass of wine spilled, are you afraid for her health? And who was playing? Were there kids playing the game? Did it remind you of when you were a kid and the grown ups were drinking? You did a wise thing walking away. Another thing that has helped me at such functions is to hang around the non-drinkers. Sometimes that just leaves the kids to hang with, but that can be fun.

We had a great time with our grandkids. They are such sweeties! And it was great being around 2 of our 3 dds and skyping with the youngest. I love my family emoticon

It sounds like you're doing great, Lisa. Walking away from an intense situation is often exactly what I choose to do. I agree with Leslie that for me anger is often based in fear. When I was new to sobriety, I felt other people could easily ruin it for me. Time has helped a lot. Working the AA 12-Steps REALLY helped me a lot. I think once I stopped being so angry with myself, I could be more accepting of others -- whether they were drinking or not.

I realize I've still got a lot to learn. I was being of service on Christmas morning which brought me right into the middle of the drama of active alcoholics. Afterwards, I was surprised at how upset it made me. They weren't family members or friends -- I don't remember ever meeting them before Christmas. Still, I was in tears thinking of it later. Maybe I just realized how blessed I am that I made the right choices when I did.

It's a good reminder that I need to change up my reading and get back to some of the AA literature that brought me comfort in my early days of sobriety.

Let's walk!

Happy Sober Sunday, Team!!!

It's another great year to be sober.
Aurlie~ I love the idea that you are continuing your healthy habits and not waiting for the elusive new year. It's like sobriety, it happens every day! Woo Hoo. Glad your Sunday will be without annoying office log ins!!!

Lisa~ Congratulations, first of all, on making all the right choices at your family gathering. In my humble opinion, you did the right things to make the day a good one for yourself. You gave yourself a break from the action when it felt too intense. You focused on yourself and what you needed and didn't make comments to the family choosing to drink. Then you shared with us, a community that truly understands EXACTLY what you are feeling. It is not good to hold it in, we must share. Your anger and frustration will be something you get beyond (most of the time) because you will feel stronger and stronger and continue to focus only on your own health and wellness. For me, anger is often based in some kind of fear. Once I'm able to answer the question "What are you really afraid of, Leslie?", I usually begin to feel differently in a certain type of situation. It takes time and patience. Be patient with yourself. As my AA sponsor always reminds me, "Don't push the river".
You are doing great!!!

Everyone on this team is to be congratulated for successful, sober holidays.

So, here's to the New Year........clink..........with sparkling water!!!

We all now have the luxury of remembering where we were, who were were with, what we did, and what we said. Woo Hoo to that miracle!!!

I had a very chilly walk/jog to my AA meeting this morning. It was actually colder on the way home. I'm still warming up, but glad I made the choice to exercise and get to a meeting.

Hug to all,
Leslie

Hi everyone! Well, yesterday went much better than I had anticipated. Yet, here's something that really troubles me and maybe you can all help me with or give me some of your advise...cause I sure need it. My parents hold their Christmas at a Bowling Alley/bar which has this big room that is just the right size for our big family. So shortly after everyone arrived, many had gone to the bar and purchased drinks...my husband included...and brought them back to the room. While a board game was being played, my mother accidently tip over her glass of wine and it spilled all over the table. It wasn't a big deal to anyone. But I, not playing the game, yet being just a spectator, started to feel some anger with it all. So I decided it was time for me to distance myself and I went for a walk around the bowling alley and watched strangers bowl. Why did I feel anger? I don't really know. But I DO know it wasn't because I wanted to be drinking myself. Actually, alcohol angers me because I have seen what it does to people and this world....that is what angers me! Alcohol is so unnecessary! Alcohol kills! Alcohol destroys lives! Alcohol is SO my enemy and when I see my loved ones drinking it, it ANGERS ME! Will I ever get beyond this? Is this normal? I don't express this feeling with anyone other then all of you, instead when I feel this anger I either distance myself from it or hold in within. Any advise?

Great to see you, Leslie! I suspected your absence was due to fun and family as well as service and responsibility.

I'm still enjoying my vacation time! I don't have to go back to the office until Wednesday. I won't check my email until tomorrow or Tuesday. It's so nice to have another whole Sunday without logging into my office!

I hope everyone is wrapping up 2012 with joy and peace. I've learned a great deal this past year and I'll be taking those lessons into 2013. I'll be making healthy choices today -- I'm not waiting for January 1 to do the right thing!

Let's walk!

Wishing you all the best, Lisa! It's not luck -- it's applying the skills you've learned. Step back and realize that the drama is just the nature of the people, nothing you can control. I do better keeping calm now that I've been sober a while. I don't take things so personally.

Happy Saturday to you all!
Wish me luck, I'm off to my families Christmas get together! YIKES! I usually have at least 2 glasses of wine before heading to this one! This will be my first going sober! I love my family dearly but my mother usually gets her undies in a bunch about SOMETHING, in turn, upsets my siblings and their families, which in turn makes me cower in a corner shaking and crying. Going into this one with my head held high and AF!!

Wow Curly! That is truly amazing! WTG!! I am so proud of you! I am nearing my one year AF also, and I hope and pray I can say and feel the same things you are! Thank you for the inspiration! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

P.S. I just realized after reading your post that I haven't experienced restless leg syndrome for months either! Never related it to being AF! Cool!

wow, CurlyHead! What a wonderful testimonial! I wish you all the best for continued progress and success!

On Christmas I got to witness active alcoholics in action. Fortunately the police diffused the situation quickly and calmly.

Hello Team!

Yesterday, Christmas Day, I made it to One Year Sober. The last drink I had was one year ago Christmas Eve. And my life has been improving ever since...Stayed strong through all of the life events that would normally have driven me to drink. Passed all the tests within the one year, too, like going away for a weekend with hubby with no alcohol. Visited my sis out of state and maintained no alcohol, even when she was drinking regularly. Was given a bottle of wine for a gift and it sits on a shelf unopened, reminding me that I don't need it. Sat next to a lady drinking red wine on the plane - in those close quarters, I could really smell it. It was a little hard, but not enough to make me stop my "streak" of no drinking.

I am thanking God for helping me to get to this point, for giving me strength to overcome this problem. I am over 20 pounds lighter just from going AF, do not have restless leg syndrome at all anymore, and can sleep through the night just fine. No longer having ridiculous arguments about perceived slights through the alcohol-tinted glasses. Much less likely to open my mouth to say things that are better left unsaid...Marriage and family life have improved and I have been able to handle some difficult life events with a sober mind. What a blessing! Thank you, Team, for your support and example.

Happy 2013 - another year of lovely sobriety!


Never, never, never give up. - Winston Churchill

Enjoy all your celebrations. Isn't it nice to be sober! I just love it!!!

Aurlie~ I'm so glad you get time off! It is sooooooooooo well deserved.

My kids have started to arrive home. They will be in and out for the next 4 days. Lots of cooking, playing, and fun. My youngest son's best friend from high school (I called him "my 4th son") is here, too, tonight. My FIL will join us tomorrow and Christmas day.

Peace!!!!!

Aurlie - that's so great that you are off the rest of the year. Me too. And how nice that you and Lola had a nice long walk! emoticon

We finished up the last few gift purchases yesterday and had a lovely visit with dh's sister and her wonderful kids and grandkids. I got to hold my 8 week old great niece - what a sweetie pie! And I saw my own darling 3 year old granddaughter. She charmed everyone! This morning I did W3D2 of C25K and I'm about to wrap gifts. We will be leaving on the 26th for a few days at my middle dd's house. No internet or TV there, so I will be relying on my grandkids for my entertainment. I still have a couple of days of Sparking until then. Guess I won't get consistency this month! That's a Cadillac problem, I think.

Hope everyone is well and happy today. Hugs! emoticon

Isn't that a great feeling, Audy! Not drinking and realizing that it's just fine!

The work-year is DONE! I even got off early today -- my boss had me shift some of my overtime hours from Sunday to today to balance things out. I was able to take Lola out for a nice long walk and have a good dinner with Mike. Now I'm Sparking in bed and he's just fallen asleep while watching television.

I'll be back to Spark tomorrow! Good night!

Let's walk!

I've been super busy, but now I'm on vacation emoticon Although I'll be just as busy, if not more so! We had our office party yesterday - it was fun. As usual no one cared what I was drinking (water). I've caught up on posts. Sounds like everyone is doing great! emoticon

I'm totally beat. I've got one more workday this year. Woo Hoo! My boss had planned to work a half day today, but I talked her into taking the whole day off. She had some extra vacation hours that she'd lose if she didn't use this week.

I'm heading to be now so I'll be ready to face the day. Friday!!!!

HEEEEYYYY, my awesome LATI friends!!!!

So sorry I've been MIA and haven't been able to catch up on everyone's posts. Been going through a national exam at work and have had examiners since Thanksgiving. Working LOTS and LOTS of hours, and taking care of all the personal life stuff. All is well though and I'm AF.....even through lots of trials the last few months. Have exit meeting with examiners tomorrow yay, Mother situation is well.....still a situation, my new bf is great as we work through many aspects of a new relationship, and all the animal kids are super. Got lots to do this weekend to get ready for Christmas, work half a day Christmas Eve, then I'm off until 2013, yippeeeeee. Headed to NC after Christmas for a great aunt and uncle's 60th wedding anniversary celebration, then back to TX for a Happy New Year.

Not sure I will be able to log back on until next year; but, wanted to wish you all some awesome holidays!!!! Many Many HUGS!!!! Bev :-)

So good to hear from you, Cyndy! You're one busy lady! Have a great vacation! I hope the weather is terrific for you in San Francisco.

Congratulations, Sherre! This really has been your year for taking control of your weight and health! You moved into that new house and really took control this year!

Congratulations on your 300th day, Lisa! That's one streak you want to keep going!

It a chilly night here and I'm off to bed soon. Sleep well, everyone!

Hope everyone is getting off to a great start this week. This is my last workweek of the year! All of the jobs on my schedule today are urgent, but I'm waiting for other departments to do their part before I can start mine. I was on the computer working at 5:30am today and there's no telling how late I'll work tonight. At least now I'm getting my full lunch break even if it is a little late in the afternoon.

I still haven't finished my Christmas shopping. emoticon

You're so right, Leslie! It's a perfect day to reflect on gratitude.

The office party went better than I expected. There was a lot of work heading my way that afternoon, but it never reached my department. It looks like others were unable do their parts on schedule. Monday will be quite a challenge, but there's nothing I can do about that now. I sampled a bit of the foods that appealed to me at the party. I've finally gotten a better grip on portion control. Being a picky eater is working for me. I don't waste my calories on junk. I was surprised to see how people heaped up the foods on their plates and kept going back for more! A few people got out of hand with their drinking as the party wore on. I was glad to slip away at a natural break in the activity. It looked like others were going to make it a late night of partying.

Mike and I had a busy day of running errands. I'm beat and it looks like I'm heading to bed early tonight.

I hope everyone has a serene and peaceful weekend!

Let's walk!

Hi Everyone.
Great day to be grateful. Every time I had the urge to get cranky over something today, I was reminded of the poor families in Connecticut who are in such deep pain and grief at this holiday time.
Cyndy, your amazing health recovery after sobriety is so very inspiring. Our bodies are so resilient when we choose to turn things around. I hope your trip plans to smoothly. I know you are enjoying each day.

Sherre, I hope that your son is healing quickly. That is very traumatic to the mouth and to have to work so soon after the extractions is so difficult. He is in my prayers. Your pictures on your page are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing them. Your chile sounds so delicious now that we have had a drop in temperature and a bit of rain.

Aurlie, I hope you survived the office festivities. You are a good and healthy example to your co-workers. You never know when your actions and good choices are influencing someone else. I hope you have been able to have fun this weekend.............rest maybe???

Lisa~ your grandmother was a very blessed woman. You will carry beautiful memories of her in you heart forever. Sending love.

Audy~ hope you are having a good and restful weekend. I bet your grand kids are getting excited about Christmas.

Strongwarrior~ A very BIG CONGRATULATIONS on 4 weeks of healthy, sober living. It is wonderful that you are already feeling the joy of days without alcohol and that it beats the temporary fix that alcohol brings. It took me many years to be that wise. Hurray for you and we are so inspired by your success and enthusiasm.

I spent Wednesday night with my husband babysitting for our granddaughter. Waaayyyyy tooooooo much fun!!!! Today we hosted a 90th birthday for my father in law, who we care for here in our town. We went to my father in laws favorite Mexican restaurant across the street from his senior living apartments. My husband's brothers and sister and their spouses drove out here to make it convenient for my fil. It was very nice and I think he enjoyed himself.

Well, about to call it a night.

To All of our team, have a wonderful weekend healthy and sober.



I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Aurlie...good luck at your party! I hope all went well and you were able to enjoy some of it and not too much added work!

Strongwarrior...I hope you feel better soon! Congrats on the 4 weeks AF!!

Hey everyone! I hope and pray you are all having a good weekend!

We put my grandmother to rest today. She lived a very long life and left a HUGE legacy! She was a month away from 99 yrs old, had 9 children, 31 grandchildren, 63 great grandchildren, and 9 great great grandchildren.....and never had a to bury any before she herself left this world!
I am FINALLY starting to feel better! My cough from the broncitis and pneumonia has finally quit, and my sinus's are still fighting to hang in there but feeling much better then before!

Well, I have much laundry, knitting, AND cleaning to do. Have a spendid weekend all!

Got a chest infection and I have finally given in and am taking antibiotics. Its a bit of a clap in the face as I have stopped smoking as well. Maybe just a reminder not to start again. Also this weekend I will be 4 weeks AF!! I'm still in shock. I'm still tempted too, but have enjoyed not drinking more than the after effects of drinking, still fighting the desire, but but from all you r help and support it is easier. To know there are such lovely successful, positive people out there who don't need a drink to enjoy themselves or to be content is encouraging. Give your selves a big pat on the back everyone.

Hope you aren't too stressed with the Christmas preparations and actually enjoying it.

I'm going out later to get some holly to make a holy wreath!

Enjoy your weekend Everyone!!

Sounds like you're doing great, Sherre! I love how organized you are!

My office Christmas party is today. It's at the office so I'm obligated to go. My boss is having a health crisis, so I'll be running the department myself. There's a good chance that I'll spend the party hours at my computer. That might not be such a bad thing. I'm contributing a gift to the White Elephant gift exchange, but I'm not looking for anything in return. I just want to get through the day in a serene and sober way.

Awesome Wednesday Everyone...
It's been Great to read the cool posts and what is Happening in Your Life this December!
A busy month for us..... shopping, working and getting your last Health Check ups with your Doctor for our 2012 year.
A Terrible patient with my Health during my drinking years. I would not go for a physical or check up. I knew I would have to stop drinking Alcohol, lose weight, change my diet, and get Fit. Now never missing an appointment. I'm happy to get a check up, weigh in, my BP checked and blood work done, and know my numbers.
Pretty dumb of me, I did not take care of myself. Our Health is very important. We need to maintain it. Never again do I take it for granted.
A Thread here on our Team by A team member.
"Definition of an Alcoholic" ...a person addicted to intoxicating drinks.
Not yet, have I posted an answer for Her...but definitely will. Great replies so far!
Halfway done with packing...My plans I'll mention Tuesday...and wish Happy Holidays!

Hi Sherre,
You are in A Cheerful Christmas Spirit! Very nice to see it in your words.
Do You have the instructions for your Camera? I know sometimes they are hard to understand until you actually try it. Many camera's do have the Info on line and can read it on a PDF. You can also enlarge it for easier reading. Locate your Flash setting on your camera.
Give it a try out! Thanks Sherr! My pleasure, it is the last Team picture change for this year. Keep on staying cozy in your home. Be extra careful out doing your errand's and shopping days. Brrrrrrrr snowy your winter wonderland emoticon Great Luck with your picture taking!

Hi Caroline,
Are You feeling better Today? I hope You are doing A-okay and the vegetable soup did make a difference. Keep your Happy emoticon mood!

Hi Audy,
Thank You very much for Sharing about the app - Twelve Steps AA Companion!
You're so very Thoughtful "*Audy*"! I do appreciate what You did say emoticon to You!
You sound content, your Life is Great! Very Cool You're baking for your Co-workers! Lucky they are, get to Enjoy your Cookies! I'd love to bake a few dozen cookies in January emoticon

Hi Aurlie,
Your Wednesday I hope it was All Good! An ongoing~~~Happy Healthy December for You!
emoticon emoticon

Hi Leslie,
Feeling wonderful Today!! A Beautiful Time tonight, you are spending with your little doll-- "*Granddaughter*" A Happy Time! emoticon

Hi Jenae,
On track, Your Healthy Living and Staying Fit! Nice ticker Action on your Scale emoticon emoticon Way To Go!

Hi Anne,
Perfect Plans for your Happy emoticon New Year!
A Great beginning to your 2013!

Hi Lisa,

Your Grandmother lived to A Lovely age of "*97*" years old!
Very Wonderful moments in Her Life. You will Always have those memories of Her and the time You did spend together.

A Lovely and Fun rest of the Week I wish You All!
Be Careful out and about...if You are around any Alcohol. Just Say "*NO*" !
You'll be glad You didn't take A Drink!

Stay Sober- Be Fit- Eat Healthy- Smile-
Do Say Thank You Very Much! ...and You're emoticon
See You All Soon emoticon emoticon emoticon Stay emoticon

Hi everyone.
Lisa, I'm so sorry for your loss. Those memories will warm your heart forever.

Audy, thanks for the app suggestion. I'm going to look into that one!

Wishing all of you a good Wednesday. Working friends~...~... only two more days.

I'm getting ready to babysit for my granddaughter tonight. Woo Hoo.

Hug!!!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

NanaLisa - so sorry to hear of your loss. This is a tough time of the year to be going through such a loss. 97 is a wonderfully long life. Think of all of the wonderful memories - and take care of yourself as you grieve this loss.

Lisa, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad you have so many great memories of your wonderful Grandma.

Hi Aurlie!

I wanted to tell you all about an app I downloaded recently. Twelve Steps AA Companion. It's really handy.

Aw, Lisa. You're in my prayers. Take time to cherish your gramma's life. Her lessons will live on in you and be passed on again and again. Be well!

Good day everyone. Well, just when I thought I was starting to feel better, the coughing got bad again. Not sure if doing the upper body weight machines this morning had anything to do with it. Wondering if that loosened things up a bit. Well, I have a few minutes before I have to go to work so will rest and drink some lemon/honey tea. I had a very sad start to my day with my gramma dying...she was 97 yrs old. Maybe I will just sit here and think of her and the memories and lessons she has taught me over the years. I loved her so much! She was a very strong lady. She will be missed.
Have a good day everyone!

Hi Everyone, HAve a great Tuesday. I have a stinking cold from my generous nephews in Spain, but I'm not going to use it as an excuse to not do anything today. I'm going to fight it. Made some vegetable soup, and I'm going for a long walk on the hills. Have fun everyone emoticon

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the well wishes. I have chronic headaches/migraines, but have been dealing with them for my whole life so it is really a matter of management at this point. I just know what will aggravate them and try to adjust. However, I have always refused to miss out on life and I'm not a complainer, so all's well.

Lisa, I hope your health improves soon. You are a very busy lady and I'd hate to see you down for Christmas.

Aurlie, Audy, Jenae, and Sherre........and everyone on the team......Have a blessed Monday.
You all inspire me on a daily basis. We are strong and resilient women and so very lucky to be sober!!!!!
I'm off to a busy, productive day!!!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Jenae - protein before bed is a good way to build muscle. The body can use the protein for the muscle building process. I should have joined you for the sandwich. I went to bed hungry and thought "No, I shouldn't eat before bedtime". Well, I woke in the middle of the night with my stomach growling. After eating out ALL weekend - I am once again looking forward to home cooked meals and the ability to drop some of this holiday weight :)

Feeling great except for the sore rib.
Finally made an appointment to see a new primary doctor about ti on Wednesday.

I was craving protein last night and had 6 ounces of turkey and some almond butter.
It was way too late to eat anything but did it anyway.
Mad at myself afterward.
Surprised to weigh in a pound lighter this morning.

Not for me to question.

Hi everyone. Well, I have been fighting an illness for nearly 3 weeks now. Went to walkin clinic after work on Thurs and found out I have a sinus infection and either broncitis or pneumonia! So today I have taken the last of the meds she gave me but still sipping down the cough syrup. I found a really yummy cough syrup though! Vicks makes it and its gluten free, alcohol free, and dye free! Its got honey in it and is VERY YUMMY! I was suppose to take it easy this past weekend but you know me. Friday night was my office Christmas party (we had a Murder Mystery Dinner...I was Ginger Heart), Saturday we drove a total of 6 hours to spend a 80th bday with my father in law, and yesterday I spent my whole day doing Christmas baking and laundry. Today I have to finish my laundry and then plan to take a walk in the snow (we got LOTS of it) and walk to the gym to do some weights. This afternoon I will take it easy on the couch while I try to finish knitting my newest granddaughters Christmas stocking...gotta get it done before Santa comes! I made all my grandkids felted Christmas stockings to hang here at my home.
Well, I'm off to get started.
Have a wonderful day everyone!

AnneMargar, sounds like you will have a great New Year's Eve again this year....and you will remember it the next day when you are out being active. Sobriety rocks!

Doing great, Jenae! emoticon

I went for a little walk/run in the rain today. It felt good! Got a little Christmas shopping done...spent very little cuz that's all I have! I'm baking cookies for my co-workers. I bought all the ingredients today and some cute containers. I'm thinking about making a hula hoop for my niece for Christmas. I have leftover makings from when I made mine. We put down the tile in the master bath. Almost done with the remodel. And had a lovely chat with 2 of my dds. Life is good emoticon

I just have to say - I am really looking forward to an alchol free New Year's Eve. I have always wanted to wake up New Year's Day and do something active -- go hiking, ride my bike on an organized ride, etc. Of course, after a night of drinking, I can't do that. Last year on New Year's Eve I did not drink. A bunch of friends went out to the clubs while my partner and I stayed home and played Xbox Connect with our daughter -- it was so much fun - something we don't do too often. I am looking forward to that fun family evening again this year :)

Hey Team,
Have a happy and sober rest of your weekend.

I have a headache tonight so the computer aggravates it. Hate that! Going to check emails, check in with my teams and get off for the night.

Peace,
Leslie

A Wonderful Thursday Afternoon Everyone!

A Beautiful December Day in So Cal☀
My Ongoing tasks are getting done, checking them off my To Do List.
Busy with appointments, check up's, staying on track with my health.
Friday I have another appointment, afterwards a little bit of Christmas shopping...some gift cards, a few cute trinkets and then a late Lunch.
After one of my appointments this week, my DH and I, had a late breakfast at a fave restaurant. We happened to see a friend of ours....A Electrician we know from the Electrical Workers.
He let us know that a friend of ours we hadn't seen in a long time, had passed away.
He had quit drinking and using... But went back to doing it. This time he lost his life. I was very sad to hear this. I used to party with him years ago.
emoticon emoticon Very Important "Our Sobriety"! Take Care of Yours!
I Wish You All A Happy Christmas Holiday Month! Much~~~Sober Cheer for Us❤

So here we are... December 6th and You are All taking care of Your Health, Accomplishing goals and losing a few more pounds slowly... A Great Thing! Your Fitness is ongoing and On track! The maintainers are keeping their numbers where they should be, and or making the adjustments. Oh ---No we don't! Want those sneaky pounds to creep on back onto our bodies.

* •❄ *Jenae,
That's Great, enjoying your journey toward good health and fitness! Congrats again, Grandma Jenae on grandbaby "Ophelia"... emoticon
Jenae... Are You using the Sparks program? If You are, recheck your numbers. On Your Nutrition tracker - Track Your Food. Maybe You are a little high on your Carbs., cut down a little on how many you eat a day. On Calories, Fats, Protein, Try not to exceed your numbers, stay within the range. Track Everything You do eat and drink. Eat your fruit and veggies every day. Water of course.
No it did not get more difficult as I did get closer to my goal. After you get to your goal weight. You can easily maintain. Because you will know why you gain or lose weight and why it happens. Portion control, very important. Just eat less of it.
Be sure to Eat at least - 1200 calories A day - !

Good morning all.
Now is the time to tell on myself...
I was in a slump due to miscalculations in weight loss.
Just re-figured the numbers and as of 11/24/12 I have lost 3 pounds.
Not too shabby.
It is more difficult to lose weight the closer I get to my desired weight of 140 pounds.
Is that common?
Does that mean I need to take a look at my program?
Have been going to the gym on a regular basis and been vigilant about calories eaten.
Any suggestions?
Would appreciate the help.

Good morning everyone!! One day left at my conference this week. It has been a nice learning environment, but the food they are serving is very salty and not really enough veggies. I can't wait to go back to eating my own clean lunches. You know it just hit me yesterday- there is nothing stopping me from bringing my own lunch. I don't know why I didn't think of that before. Hmmm...... Have a great day everyone!

Sherre, your home sounds so festive! I do appreciate that people take the time and trouble to decorate. You're such a trooper for doing it in the cold weather! I'm looking forward to your pictures. I love to see the holiday lights -- just like you, Audy. I don't decorate my home, but I'm keeping up with fresh profile pictures each day -- that's fun for me!

Good for you for taking care of your health screenings, Leslie.

I hope you get over that cough, Lisa.

I love your positive posts, Jenae and StrongWarrior. This is such a great team. It's always great to hear from you, Cyndy! You're a great leader!

Hope everyone is good today, I'm having a lovely holiday with my family. Having the sun makes such a difference, although it can be chilly in the evening still, I've also eaten soo much fresh fish its coming out of my ears. Lovely :)

Happy Tuesday everyone.
I'm off to run errands and go to my Tues. night AA women's meeting.

Get well Lisa!!!!!!!

Sherre, be careful out there in that cold.

Strongwarrior.....Congratulations on 18 days. Fantastic!

Hi Cyndy. Hope you had a great Tuesday.

Aurlie~ please unload your burdens when you need to, but I'm glad the team helped cheer you up.

Busy day for me. I had my third bone scan. I hope the results are still good. I have osteopenia, but no osteoperosis yet. The jog/walking and strength training and calcium has held things at bay.

Lots of errands done, more tonight.

Chris and I spent time this afternoon working my horse in the round pen and brushing and trimming her. She was muddy and lazy after the rain.

Looking forward to my AA meeting.

Peace to you all,
Leslie

Hope you feel better soon, Lisa emoticon Coughs really hang on, don't they? Sounds like a great time with the kiddies.

((Aurlie)) - I love your post about getting cheered up here by the wonderful folks on this team! emoticon

How do the decorations look, Sherre? I love driving home (now that it's dark when I come home) and seeing our lights. They always make me feel happy! emoticon

Yes, Strong - sober & smoke free - wtg! emoticon

Hi Everyone, Hope you all had a great Tuesday. I΄m feeling very happy at the moment, a side effect of not drinking and smoking for 18 days I suppose emoticon !!

Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful start to the new week. I was tempted to spew out a negative post about my rotten day, but I got caught up reading what you've all written and I feel better. It's chilly here and I'm off to bed. g'nite all!

Let's walk!

Hello ALL!
I was very busy today. Spent the whole day with my grandsons! From early morning to early evening. It was the BEST! I love my grandbabies SO MUCH!!
I have been fighting a bad cough for nearly two weeks now. It has gone to my chest and now tonight I feel I'm starting to feel a little congested....I usually end up with at least one and sometimes two sinus infections a year. But this cough is unbelievable! I need it to go away!
Tea time and then bed for me.
Have a wonderful evening everyone!

Hope dson is feeling better soon, Sherre.

Running in the rain sounds lovely, Leslie emoticon

A bit of drama at work today, but it seems to have worked out okay.

Hope everyone has a good evening emoticon

Hi Sherre, Cyndy, Aurlie, Audy, Lisa, Janae, Strongwarrior, Bev,..........and all the rest of our team. Happy Monday.

Sherre, I hope your son heals up soon. I'm assuming there will be some denture work done down the road. Glad your Monday has been a good one.

I hope everyone is feeling great, staying sane and sober, and remembering to count our blessings.

I've had a busier day than I planned. My 3 hours with my sister this morning went really well. It is so important to both of us to keep our relationship separate from all the other ugly family drama. All's well in sisterhood.

I've spent the afternoon on the phone calling AA friends and putting together a celebration for my sponsor. She has 14 years of sobriety this month and has been a wonderful support for me this past 10 years. It should be a fun celebration.

Tonight my fil is coming over for dinner and Monday night football. I'll hopefully finish decorating the house and tree. I'm close. I keep it simple!

Hugs to you all.
Leslie
