I talked to Sheila earlier today, Krys. She was still in a lot of pain. She is not able to get out of bed for no more than to go to the bathroom and maybe to sit long enough to try to eat.
from being in bed so much it is effecting her muscles in her leg,causing more pain. There is no exercise she can do that will not pull or effect her back muscles!

As of now she is having to rely on her medication to just try to make it through. She does have an appointment on Friday. Let's hope and pray the doctor finally decides to at least see her this time!


Even though she is in so much pain, her faith is strong and every time I talk to her she always asks about the teams! She is indeed a true Leader! She misses everyone very much!

Maybe she will be able to pop on sometime tomorrow!

Have a great night and keep sparking my friend!
Barbara

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I talked to Sheila today and she did not get to see the doctor this morning. They did not have the x-rays. So they sent her home and told her to come back Monday!
She is still in a lot of pain, but her faith is holding her strong!
She said to tell everyone she appreciates all the prayers, and she will try to get back on line in a day or two!

Have a great day!
Barbara

Good morning everyone!

emoticon To all of you on your weight loss WOOHOO!

**NOTE**
I wanted to let all of you know I have to go to the hospital Monday morning at 7:30 for 4-6 hours to get a Myelogram with dye and a CT Scan done on my back. I have been in so much pain and it's not going away this time. I may end up having to have back surgery again. I then go back to my doctor Wednesday morning at 8:00 so I will know something then and I will let all of you know what's going on. So when I get back home on Monday I will be in bed for the rest of the day and maybe on Tuesday as well. I just wanted to let you know I want be on-line for a few days next week. Keep me in your prayers.

Thank you, Sheila

February: Week 1 Weigh In: Down 7.8; Total 14.2 since Jan 2nd.

Wooo Hooo! I think the big jump in loss is due the being diligent with my 8+ glasses of water a day. My rule: No food or other beverages before I get one bottle down.

Also, I was at the gym 5 days last week - 20 minutes "weight loss" program on the treadmill and 15 minutes of weight training afterwards.

And,, my SPARK support! Thank you!!!!

Keep pushing Krys! Those pounds will start coming off! If you are eating right and exercising they will have no choice but to hitch hike out of here!

Hope everyone is having a great week and stay in touch with you Buddy! Support is still very important!

Thanks for the sites. They had a lot of useful information. Things that I had never really considered. I had a good January and I am looking forward to another good month. I like the idea of making small changes...it has definitely helped me.

Welcome everyone to the February Challenge!

We had a great month now it's time to keep going. This month we will be keeping up with what we did last month and adding to the list. One week at a time step by step for a life time change and losing weight once and for all. I will give you the list for last month and what we will be doing this week.

If you are just joining us try to make a before and after photo so you can see what you look like. You will come to this thread to post for weight loss. It will be up to you when you want to weigh-in. We will be giving you support a long the way and things to work on each week. If you mess up that week don't worry just pick yourself right back up and start again.

**PLEASE READ**

emoticon emoticon This year we will be working on "SMALL CHANGES".

Small Changes to Weight Loss

As much as many of us who are over-weight do not like to admit, it is our past and current eating habits that have us looking the way we do today. We need to make many small changes to our eating and drinking habits to reach our healthy weight. It is a long term vision with many short term goals.

Understanding weight lose takes time but it is important to know that you need to consume less energy than you use in order to lose the extra calories. The best way to ensure that you are burning more calories than you consume each day is to focus one day at a time on small changes.

1) Start by keeping a food diary. It will make you aware of how much you are eating and drinking. By recording your daily intake of both meals and drinks you will be able to keep track of your calorie intake and see where to cut back. Did you know it takes an extra 3500 calories to gain one pound of fat? So to lose that one pound you have to take in less 3500 calories or do more exercise. Work on cutting out something that you know you don't need like coke, sugars and starches.

2) Try swapping certain foods. If you like to snack on a marsbar, change this snack to a healthy snack like 8 medium strawberries instead as it could save you about 70 calories and add to your daily fibre intake.

3) Learn to read food labels. By reading food labels you will be able to work out your calorie intake and swap different brands. For example, you could save 50 calories by just changing your breakfast cereal, or save 100 calories by changing form sour cream to salsa.

4) Enjoy 5-6 meals/snacks per day as eating more often curbs your appetite and boosts your energy and improves your metabolism. The reason your metabolism is improved is that the process of digestion itself burns calories.

5) Exercise will be required to lose weight and keep it off. It is via exercise that you will improve your muscle tone and trim centimetres from your figure. Without exercise your weight loss comes from lean muscle tissue. Exercise will also improve your metabolic rate. When you introduce exercise to your daily routine, start slowly. 3 x 10 minutes is better than no exercise at all. Also note that exercise comes in all forms, housework, gardening, playing with the children, walking the dog.

6) Drink 8 glasses of water a day as water suppress the appetite and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Water also helps rid the body waste and during weight loss there is a lot more body waste to excrete. If you are hungry always drink a glass of water first and wait ten minutes, you may have mistaken thirst for hunger.

7) Ask your friends and family to support you. Share your goals, talk about your goals and with support you too can start small changes that will lead to a healthier life style and weight loss.

**NOTE** For this week we will work on Deep Breathing and Relaxing.

So here we go Georgia Team let's get moving. You Can Do It!!
