No one has taken the time to sit and chat on this big Comfy Couch for a while. I just stopped by to say I spent two months in WV....January 18, to March 13, because Mom was sick. I think it snowed at least a little everyday but two. I know now how you all get tired of snow....every prayer I ever prayed for snow in Texas was answered in West Virginia. lol

Mom was in the hospital...thank the Lord she is better.

LEts move the discussion to football. I am heart broken that WVU not only went a an awful bowl game, but lost to a team who we have known we could beat for years. The down fall of WVU after a 5-0 start has me worried, that GEno SMith even though he will be one of the number one QBs in the draft, will not get drafted at all, when he has such a great talent that is actually meant for the NFL! awww I just want WVU to have some luck....

Congratulations on the upcoming Grandchild....great that is. That is great any way you put it. Hopes and prayers for a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

Is everyone in my Home state back to normal with electricity and heat after the big storm? I hope so......No one is talking. Hope all is well.

I've been biting my lip to make the grand announcement: We're going to be GREAT-GRANDPARENTS! Our very first one. Tim and Emily were married this past March and our little one is due in March 2013. We already are blessed with FOURTEEN "regular" grandchildren (LOL).

Pray for Emily and the baby's health. So good to chat with you again.

If you find yourself making "not getting any help on this forum" your excuse for quitting. Think about it. In the end of the day it must be YOUR decision to succeed! Weight loss and good diet is more than just a "weight loos and diet" program. It is a LIFE STYLE CHANGE. Therefore you must change, YOU must change. I am not trying to me mean but I am being honest with you, which is what a real friend would do. Don't quit, fight it! Keep at it! Fight for what you know you want/need!

Hello Everyone!

WHEW!!!

We just got back from the whirlwind marriage of our grandson Tim. It was quite a trip. We were involved in the tornado situation through Ohio and Kentucky. We barely made it in to the hotel shelter before the weather got worse. Thankfully all our family arrived safely. We arrived in tornado weather and left 2 days later in 2-3 inches of snow!!!! Talk about a crazy time. Fortunately we took layers of clothing.

The sad thing about this wonderful wedding trip was that I GAINED a few pounds. I was bummed over that but I'm making every effort now to stop the avalance (smile).

How's everyone doing here? Making progress? Not making progress? Don't get discouraged, we all have our ups and downs.

Fill me in. Hugs to all of you,
Bonnie

I just wanted to say goodbye. I was really down & just wanted to find someone that lives in this state closer to me but I got nothing. I really needed support, motivation, & some inspiration & I got nothing. I'm not trying to be mean or selfish but I thought we was in this together but I guess I was wrong.

Hey Missy,

I think you're doing a great job. Don't push so hard that you get discouraged, tired, too sore, etc. One day at a time, one slight speed-up, etc. You're going to do just fine.

The rest of you are making progress too. Some have higher metabolisms than others, some are able to exercise vigorously, some can barely exercise. The important thing is to keep doing the BEST YOU CAN. Don't think you're a failure because you can't keep up with other people. We're all wired differently.

HI all. I so agree with BLONDWUNN and Bonnie. I have had a frustrating year, still sticking with SparkPeople, but had a medical issue that I was unaware that the Rx and prescribed therapy was not working. I have a B-PAP for sleep apnea, and it seems like around Christmas 2010, it began to mal-function. Insurance company not cooperative. All I knew was I had no energy, stopped swimming, could barely drag myself through the days. (Funny ins. co was willing to pay for ECG but not test of machine). Machine, which sets next to my head at night, began making horrible noise in July 2011, I started with medical supply company, no help. Then in August with neurologist, who began fight with Insurance company. In JANUARY, he made ins. rep listen to B-PAP which now sounded like a snow plow scraping a bare road and was blowing the smell of burning plastic into my lungs all night long. Got loaner replacement. Mine was deemed repairable, which means they used my shell and replaced all working parts. Through all of this, I have kept off the 35 +/- pounds I lost, but have not lost. This week, with a basically new machine, I hope to be off to and moving again. For the first time in over a year, I get to sleep through the night, and I have a reasonable amount of energy. Took a month on the loaner to re-teach my brain to sleep. Old machine was not only noisy but would stop dozens to hundreds of times a night. So I am hopeful as we approach March.

The weight loss is important for many of us. I just want to remind folks that if we're MOVING each day, and watching what we eat, we should be FEELING BETTER, more energetic, and we should see our numbers (cholesterol, bp, sugar) going down too. These are fantastic plusses to look at even when the scale doesn't cooperate!

I learn more from SP every day, along with the rest of you, and am so glad to see how this information has motivated me in so many ways.

Bonnie, I'm sooo proud of you. The weight loss is wonderful. I'm still struggling...knowing in my heart and in my mind how badly I need to do this, but I keep hanging around the same weight, give or take a few. I'm down 7 in January...but somehow my motivation is gone again. The spark people cookbook has helped me so much, because the recipes are so delicious!

Good morning everyone!

How's it going? Are you struggling, having victory, standing still? Feel free to reach out to us to walk with you through the valleys and the victories.

I've managed to lose down from 242 to 217 in the past few months. This is extremely major for me because I have a real slow metabolism and some issues with my hip and knee. With the support of many friends, my dear husband, and the Lord, I am on the road to victory. You can be there too.

Love you all,
Bonnie

Hello Everyone,
Sorry I've been gone for so long. Lots of things happening here. I'm still holding on to losing weight. I've lost 25 lbs in the last few months and stabilizing right now.

I ask you to forgive me for not being as faithful to you as I normally have always been. Our family is growing up so fast and we're in the midst of our grandson's upcoming wedding March 4th. I've been going nuts finding a grandmother of the groom outfit but, thanks to losing some pounds and inches, I was able to find some lovely things to wear. We'll be headed to KY for the big moment (our first grandchild to get married). We only have 13 more to go (LOL). Anyway, it's been awhile since I've talked about our little "Baby Boo" that was born to my 44-year-old daughter. Laney is going to be TWO years old this Saturday. Lana and Laney are flying here to spend a week with us. We're so excited.

How's everyone doing here? Are you working toward your goals, asking for support, celebrating every little 1/4 lb loss? I know you all and I know you can do this. I'm doing a low-carb diet which seems to work well for me. What's the type of weight loss choice have you made?

I love you all and look forward to being back with you on a regular basis as soon as we get this wedding over with. My hubby and I are doing great, getting ready to celebrate our 28th anniversary very soon. The Lord has (and is) blessed us down through the years and we're very grateful for that.

Have a fabulous (and low-calorie) day!
Bonnie

I'm in a pretty good mood today. Getting ready to do some grocery shopping with my husband. I go back to work tomorrow at noon. My husband is working 6 days this week. I've worked out for 8 days in a row & feeling good about it. Well going to try to post more often & blog once a week. Well better go for now.

Angela: if you can do 5 minutes, then start with 5 minutes and try to add a minute a day. You can probably do 5 minutes several times a day, providing you an opportunity to rest in between. The minutes really do add up over the day. If you can add a minute each session, soon you will have an hour of walking a day. In winter, I do laps inside my house. Wood floors are easier on my joints than concrete. Grass is best, but not so easy in winter. Look at the available exercises on Sparkpeople, and take a look at chair exercises to help build some strength and flexibility
Odie..: Depression is a struggle. It is good that you recognize this, and please don't beat your self up. Try to get through a short time period - 10 or 15 minutes. Then the next 10 or 15 minutes. Don't try for a whole day. Maybe from one meal to the next. Or maybe you need to try having several mini-meals - knowing you will get to eat something every 3 hours can help some people. Take the total recommended calories and divide by 6 or 7 (you work long hours) and that will tell you about how much you can eat at a time. Try to have some protein and complex carbs at every meal or mini meal. It helps you feel satisfied longer.
MissyA72: I am also a stress eater, not so much an emotional eater. I can eat when working under pressure and not even remember that I ate, let alone what I ate. So I work on stress reduction all the time. Some times it even helps. Have a great day ladies.

Yesterday I did really bad. It seemed like I ate all day & I know that's not good. Of course I regret it & one reason I am is cause I woke up with an upset stomach & the other reason is where I'm trying & I know I didn't try very hard. Well going to go work an 11 hour shift then I'm off Monday. Hopefully things will get better. I can just say depression hurts a lot & I think what I did was turn to food instead of talk about it.
