Good evening!
I managed to get the computer away from Dd for a few minutes.
But this will have to be short. We had some "losers" from the previous thread~ Sherry and Patricia. Great job! The rest of us will be joining you soon!!!!!
Tomorrow is the Lord's day, so I doubt that I will get online then.
Have a blessed day!!

Happy Lord's Day to All!!!!:angel:

Thanks EcMOM for started our new thread, it was getting a little long. I had a good busy day yesterday. And today I'm on call and working so getting to church doesn't look like it's in the picture. :( I miss it when I have to miss.

Where are all you wonderful folks? spending time with family? exercising? walking malls? lurking but not posting??? Well, whatever I miss you!!!

Well, not much to report here. I'm proud to say I ate OP yesterday although didn't get my whole walk in but did get quite a bit of exercise. Hopefully will do better today.

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL LORD'S DAY!!! The weather here in central Texas was heavenly yesterday and I hope the same for today. I would love to start working outside today getting my yard in order. See you soon.

Blessing today!
I am happy to anounce that my DD is now engaged! Thanks for all the prayers for my FIL he is doing better! Prayer does work! I am off this weekend and trying to get my house in order Pray that I can get everything done. I will WI later today I have been OK but not good this week. I relized this week that I have been on a diet every Valentines day for the last 20 years!!!! I have only gotten a box of candy twice in my married life and the other years I told DH not to get me candy because I was on a diet!
I have to get ready for church I will try to post later.

Hi! I just came back from an invigorating walk. It felt so great to get out there again. It was quite windy so I didn't get to go as far as I wanted to but I did get out there and that's a start.

We went to church this morning. what a blessing! I don't know what I'd do without my church! We came home and had a spaghetti dinner. DS had his girlfriend over and they went snowmobiling. It'll be one of the last times he can do this for the season. Then I had a bit of a nap while DH watched golf. So, it's been a very relaxing day.

Hope you all are having a great day too!

Sami: I'm so glad to hear your FIL is doing better. PTL!! and you're going to be a MIL. How cool is that!!

Eeyore's Son: The weather here isn't nearly Texas weather but if it's melting here we're doing great. Winter isn't over here for another month or so and we appreciate any mild spell we can get. Today it's 5C.

Take care!!

Wilma - congrats on the walk!!!!! I'm actually looking fwd to being able to exercise again.

BUT... I am happy to report that my first week of WW (minus the exercise of course) was good... stayed w/in my points and lost just over 4 lbs!!!!!! :D

My dh lost between 5 & 6 I think... I just saw the scale, but haven't talked w/him this morning...

Good Morning Everyone! :wave:

How is everyone? Where is everyone? Nice to see you and hello to Patricia ~ Wilma ~ Sami. Zoe ~ we hope you are having a GREAT vacation!!!!

Yesterday was not a bad day but just busy. I stayed OP but wasn't able to walk yet due to chest pain without my med. I got back on it last night and plan to walk here in a minute as soon as DH gets through. He has lost 19 lbs!!!!! But men are this way you know. He asked me yesterday not to be mad at him. I just chuckled and asked whatever do you mean. Knowing all the while he was talking about his losing so much faster than me. I'm not mad but it does irritate me a little. :spin:

Patricia~ Your DH and you are doing Fabulous!!!!! Congratulations on a job well done!!!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Wilma~ Good for you getting the walking in!!! No, I realize that your weather is not Texas weather, not many places are. Sometimes, I would love to have the opportunity to go snowmobiling like your DS!!! We hardly ever get snow and when we do it's just a small amount with ice before or after it. But, I am loving these 60 - 70 degree days!!!!! But so are my allergies!!!

Sami~ Congratulations MIL to be!!!!! How exciting!!! I do hope you like the new member to be. And so very happy to hear that your FIL is improving!!!! PTL!!!!!
:smug:

Well, I better head for the treadmill. Hope everyone has a GREAT day!!!!!!! Weigh in is tonight for me. Hope that old metal god is NICE!!! Check in soon!!

Hello to all,
I am praying really hard to stay OP and make my goal of losing my weight before my DD gets married. I do a lot of scrapbooking and I try never to be in the picture but with something as important as my DD wedding I want to be in the picture but I don't want to bef fat!!!!! I just don't understand how something as simple as watching what goes in my own mouth can be so hard!

Please keep my nephew Joey in your prayers today. He is having surgery this morning to find out what this large lump is on his face. He was playing basketball and hit heads (almost a month ago) He went to the hospital at the time and was told he had a bruse. He said he had a small lump before the accident and it has grown so large in a short amount of time that it has taken half his face.

Sherry and Patricia-Of course the men lose faster! I am happy for them.

Wilma-So glad you got your walk in. I need to find something I can do my legs still go numb when I walk so I can't go far.

May the Lord bless you and Keep you!

Good Morning! It's another lovely day here in Manitoba. I get off work an hour early today so hopefully after getting groceries, etc. I will still have time to get in a short walk before supper. I'm making a simple meal tonight so I don't have that pressure.

Patricia: You're doing awesome! Doesn't feel great to see the scales moving downward again?? I think its great you and your DH can do this together. Mine doesn't have a problem and eats whatever he wants.

Eeyore's Son: Men lose it so much easier than we do! Mine puts on about 15 lbs every winter and then loses it when he works harder in the summer. He doesn't change his eating habits but gets more exercise in the summer. I would love to experience a warm winter just once! And... you can come up here and snowmobile anytime!! We live in very hilly country and there are a lot of beautiful trails to ride on.

Sami: It's nice to have a goal to lose weight for! My Ds's grad is in June and I would love to lose some weight before then. I want to buy a dress that I can wear to grad and to my nephew's wedding which is in July. I will pray for Joey. This must be very scarey for him.

Hello to Zoe, Gutchie, Pravda and anyone else I missed. We miss you!

Good Morning!!!!!!!!!
We had a busy weekend. Ds had 2 basketball games, we went to visit my mother yesterdayand inlaws Sunday, church and all the other running around that becomes part of daily life with kids.
I am glad that most of them are back in school- except for Dd (6) who is home with a cough. She really could have gone in, but this is only kindergarden and she looks tired. A day of rest was in order, I think.
Sami- I will keep your nephew in prayer. This must be hard for the whole family, especially because he is so young. Great news about your Dd!!!!!!!! Congrats. What a happy reason to lose weight.:) We will kick you along here to keep you inspired with your diet.
Wilma- I am so happy for you that the weather has broken and you are getting those walks in! (it was really bothering you for a while, I think). Spring is coming....... I actually have a few dumb bulbs that are up. I say dumb, because I don't really think that winter has given up on us yet. But, we know it is coming and walking weather will be here. Any news on the house you were looking at?
Sherry- How are you feeling today? Hope that you got a walk in. And how nice that you and Dh are dieting together. It sure makes it easier! Good news that you stayed OP, too. WTG.
Patricia- Awsome! Great news on the weight loss for you and Dh!
Relax with the excercise yet. You are still (in my humble opinion) still too "post partum" to begin that. I know that I started to begin running around too soon after Ds and set myselfl back a week or two. Spring will be here all too soon- and nice weather and lots of time for excercise. You are doing great without it for now!:)

I could not get a walk in yesterday- just too busy with all the running around. I hope to get one in this afternoon once Dd gets home and I can leave her with her sister. I miss my walk!:(
Gotta go and get dinner set up (so I am not in panic mode later).
Have a great day!

I am a little upset at myself. I have been so bad and naughty these past 2 weeks! I was doing so great, losing weight, then I got cocky and stopped being so strict on myself, I have not weighted myself since then, and I have not done any excersice! I am going to the gymn tonite, so I am sure that I will be all upset tonite and let you know what happened. :?:
I am hoping that I have not gained, but stayed the same, at least! We will see.
I am just discourgaed, I guess I am being too hard on myself. I do not want to have to always worrying about the food tha I put in my mouth. I enjoy eating and this changing the way I eat is not working for me. I miss the potato, french fries, and good pasta! I like Sugar!

Anyway, I am having a rough few weeks!

Good Tuesday afternoon all!

Sherry... I love the idea of a mini goal.. think I'll start putting my stats as start/now/mini/final goal...

Pravda - Why not keep eating french fries and potatoes.. just eat a few less? Split those fries w/someone, or save half that potatoe for tomorrow's lunch? Just an idea (or "idear" as my dh would say).

This is one of those days that putting my kids into school is very appealing!!! :p I"m very tired, and not the best homeschooling teacher today, for sure!

Our church is doing a "40 day spiritual advance" from now until Easter, with the goal being a closer walk w/the Lord... I sooo need this!! I recognize, however, that this journey will not go unchallenged by our adversary! The more I try to change my tone of voice to be more more consistently gentle... the more "opportunities" to scream arise!! Know what I mean??? :^:

Have a great day all!! :smug:

Pravda: I just want to encourage you. we have all been where you are now and it is possible to overcome. I always like to use the analogy of potholes. You hit a pothole and do you sit there or do you get out of it and carry on. It's a matter of choice. I am speaking to myself here too. I've been in the pothole of laziness and need to get out and walk.

You are not alone and we are here for encouragement and prayer. :love:

Congratulations to those who lost weight, are exercising, and hanging in there OP... the rest of us will be joining you as soon as we can!

The last couple of weeks the eating program has gone out the window, wrong food choices and stress have reigned in my life. At weigh in I was up another .75 pounds... but right now I don't seem to care, there is a crisis happening with my son and his wife that is breaking my heart.

They have come through so very much, physically mentally and emotionally ( I've shared here) and they know Gods helping hand and prayer work. They both work so hard with such crazy hours it puts a strain on the relationship, but things have gone from good to terrible. He has become so angry verbally (unusual for him) and did some thing to break the trust level before christmas and felt he had to tell her 3weeks ago, so God would forgive him... needless to say they have been fighting since. She has been trying very hard to forgive and start rebuilding as they love each other very very much and have been married 5 years. But he seems to be sabotoging himself and staying confrontational, and hasn't given an opening for us to talk or share together. Her mom has sent plane fare for her to come home and visit as there have been 2 deaths in the family ( not real close relatives) but it seems like our sons bad attitude is pushing her away instead of his actions and attitude drawing her closer and rebuilding a positive relationship again. In someway I think he is trying to punish himself?

She confided in me as her best friend ( her family is 3500 miles away) I love her so much, she is my daughter in love! A blessing from God for my wounded heart because my biological daughter is paranoid delusional and disapeared from our family 7 years ago, we don't know if she is dead or alive, we just have to leave her in God's hands.

What can we as parents do??? Do we confront our son??? NOTHING I Guess! Except love and pray for them.

Sorry for the heavyness of my post, I just don't know where to go, it's almost 3 a.m. and laying in bed crying and trying to pray, isn't helpful to my DH who gets up at 5 a.m. for work. This is really messing me up, work and volunteer positions are both suffering right now... stress and fear are the big ones right now.
I can't turn my heart or mind off.

Please pray for me and my family!

Good Morning to Everyone!!!!!:wave:

I had weigh in last night and was very sad to learn that I had gained over a lb!!!! :mad: But after talking with my leader I realize that since I was in such bad shape and have now started walking that I am building muscle to replace some of that fat and muscle weighs more than fat. With my inches loss, my leader convinced me that it is a good thing for this gain. Sure didn't look good on those stupid metal scales, though. :sigh:

Teaki~ - You know our prayers are with you and your family. It is so very hard to watch something like this going on and not jump in. I don't know your relationship with your son but a lot of times mom jumping in can be a disaster. So, all you can do is be there for your DDIL and place this burden at the feet of the Master and give it ALL to Him. You have to let go for Him to work. This is always hard. Of course, this is just my own opinion. You could plant the seed to both the kids to seek God's will if you think they would be receptive. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

Patricia~ You and DH are doing so good.......keep up the good work!!!! How's Joshua? {{{Baby hugs}}}

Pravda~ Good to hear from you again. You might try making some oven fries. And as far as potatoes, I eat a baked potato about twice a week. I just add either Molly McButter, ff sour cream or spray butter. Hang in there, where there is a way there is a will. ;)

Ginny~ Sounds like you have been really busy!!! But that can be a good thing!!! Hope DD is doing much better. There is a lot of respiratory stuff going around here. Watch her closely as I know you will.

Wilma~ You are strong and determined and WILL lose the weight before DS's graduation!! Oh, how the years fly by. Our kiddos just grow so fast these days! Maybe someday I can take you up on that snowmobile ride. I know I would love it!!!!

Sami~ You too will lose before this summer, you just have to be determined and keep the goal in front of you. So sorry about your nephew!! Of course, our prayers are with you and him and the rest of the family. I know it's scarey with his age and everything. Keep looking up for the answers! Glad to hear the FIL is better!

Well, sweet folks, I must go take my walk this morning. I hope everyone has a wonderful Humpday!!!! Stay OP and get active!!!! I know you can do it!!!!

Prayers and Hugs to All!!!!!

This is the day that the Lord has made Let Us rejoice and be Glad in it!

Great News my Nephew is doing Great when The Dr. openned it up it was a mass infection so they cleaned it up and drained it. Prayer answered. (this is the same family who's other son was molested)

Teaki-My heart goes out for you. I bet your right that your son knowing he has hurt his wife pushes her away because it is hard to face her knowing he hurt her. I would go to your son and be honest with him but only he can make this work. I am lifting your family up in prayer.

Pravda-You and I am at the same point I start out well and I get thinking a little won't hurt and before I know it I am back where I started. I know I have to give it up(sugar,fries ect..) because I can't just eat a little. What we need to remember is Nothing taste better than being thin feels! (I saw that posted here) We are going to get back on the wagon and we Will do it! I am lifting you up in prayer! And I am here for you.

Sherry-I hate the scales!!!! You are doing GREAT and you keep up the good work!!! Your right about the muscle weights more than fat so look at the little diffrences that you notice. You are going to do it!!!!!!! I have faith in you!

Ginny-I don't know how you do home schooling I am so happy to drop them off in the morning LOL! As I am typing I have to keep breaking up littles spats. What is the 40 day thing?

Wilma-try to do the stress free meal and maybe even work on your quilt! I am making paper dolls for the preschool so they can put the names on the dolls to show who will be in preschool next year well I had to get fancy the tee shirts for the preschool have hand prints going in a circle so I go out my mini punch and made mini hand prints. It is cute but a lot of work!!!! (Keeps my hands busy so I am not thinking of food)

Blessing to all,
Sami

Sami - you addressed this to Ginny, but I think you meant me! Don't worry, we often get confused for one another :dizzy: !

The 40 day thing... is just a time our church has set aside for us, as a church body, to refocus ourselves on Him and our relationships w/Him. This time has been designated w/specific prayers in mind... they even laid out the entire New Testament to be read over these 40 days. Today is actually the first day, so I need to be sure to get my reading in! I'll tell you, just now, it's very hard for me to set aside that "quiet time"... when I'm awake by myself (except for the baby), I'm too tired to focus on any words!!!!

It'll get better though!!! :D

Good afternoon!!!!
Sami~ wondeful news on your nephew!!!!! Praise God for His goodness and mercy.
Teaki~ we will pray for your family! It is the only answer- and if there is action to be taken, He will let you know thru prayer too. My heart breaks for you.
Patricia~ now how could two slightly silly individuals, such as ourselves be confused with each other! Love ya lots- and I am honored to be confused with you! Hope that you got your scripture time in.
Pravda- I will keep you in prayer too. I like Wilmas potholes analogy. (Thanks, Wilma!)
Sherry~ did you get your walk in? I hope so. Thanks for the encouragment.
Another busy day, so I have to go. Dd stayed home again. What a nagging cough! She took a nap this afternoon and seems a bit better.
I weighed in this am at 154.5#. It seems hard to believe that the 150 threshold is approaching. (I am getting excited- I have not weighed less than 150 since Ds was born, almost 13 years ago!)
Gotta go, he (Ds) just came home from school.
Have a blessed evening.

Hello...Let me be the first to wish you all a Great day!

I'm about ready to head to work.
Whew...this has been a busy week :dizzy: Kids will run you to death. But I guess I wouldn't have it any other way. I have been able to get my walking in each day:D I weighted monday and had lost 2 lbs.:)
I am only working 1/2 a day tomorrow. Our church is going on a skiing trip. This will be a first for us. Hope I can stay op and not break my neck!

I pray that you all will have a safe and joyful Thursday:wave:

Ginny - Horray for 150!!!! You can do it! I don't think I've seen 150 since before....Jennifer maybe??? at least 3 kids ago... but soon!!! I think I was stuck at 162 for the last 2 years... so I'll be excited to see 160 come and go too!!! If I stay w/in points...I should be close to that on my birthday next Saturday!!! That would be a nice birthday present to me!!!

Hope everyone else is having a good Thursday.... remember, we're in this together, and God is leading our way!!

Good Morning! I'm at work so this has to be a quick one. I want you to know that I am praying for you today!

Teaki: I am lifting up you and your family in prayer. May you find the answers you need. I can't imagine what you are going through but want you to know that I care.

Eeyore's Son: WTG on losing inches. That's more important than the scale anyway. My scale shows that I haven't gained any over the summer and yet I've gained an inch on my waist and I know it's because of lack of exercise.

Sami: I'm so glad your nephew is okay. What a stressful time for your family.

Patricia: Your 40 day thing sounds quite a bit like what we're doing in our church only it's call 50 day Spiritual Adventure. The sermons match the devotional books we've been given. The topics this year are about Bible Characters. Last Sunday was Joseph and fleeing from sexual sin. Next Sunday we learn more about Esther (my favorite). I'm enjoying it.

Ginny: You're doing great! Leaving me in your dust. Of course, I need to get out of this big pothole I'm wallowing in and get moving again. If I sit here much longer I'm going to need a crane to get me out. LOL

Monica: You're doing great too! One would think that moms would all be skinny with all the running around we do!!

Let's all make a commitment to get going and get doing!!

Have a wonderful day!:wave:

I am feeling a little better about things. I have gotten back OP. It has been a rough week though, I have caught that cold that everyone else has! I fought it as long as I could, but caught it anyway! Man, these colds are mean!:s:

Wilma- Thanks for the words of encouragement. It helped a lot.

Patricia- How is Joshua doing?

Sami-At least I am not alone in this battle. I have learned about myself that I have to get rid of all the bad stuff, I can never just eat one or a little.

Anyway, I am at work, so I will chat more later!

Good Morning Dear Ladies!
I was at work yesterday, and got to read the posts, but was so busy that I had no time to respond. Then on the way home, I found out that Ds had to make a presentation last nite at school (which we did not know about until I picked up up from Bball practice!)- so it made for a long day. Now Ds is home with a 103 fever. It seems flu like- he is throwing up and has a sore throat.
Now that I have made everyone's day..............:)
I hope to get back here later and address the posts. So many of you are facing trials. Teaki and Pravda I will remember your special concerns in prayer.
Hope that each of you have a good day.

Good Saturday Morning to All!!!!!!

So sorry I haven't been posting much lately but it was either post or walk and I really have to walk. I hope ya'll understand. :^:

I have done really well this week. I've been OP with points to spare and been active. The old metal box says this morning that I am losing but Tuesday will be the official WI. I have been walking a mile every morning and trying real hard to get at least a half a mile in during the afternoon or early evening. But haven't every day.

Oh nuts, I gotta go take one of the kids somewhere that I didn't know about. LOL I'll come back later and address your posts.

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!!!!

Good evening!
Sherry~ well, in my book going for a walk instead of posting is wonderful!!!!!! Congrats on your dedication and perserverance.
We will all be here to rejoice with you as the scale goes down!:)

Monica~ congrats on losing 2#! I hope that the skiing trip was safe and fun. (as for me, I would ski only if an ambulence could drive right next to me.........or can you ski surrounded by airbags?:dizzy: )


Patricia~ haven't heard from you in a few days. How are you feeling?? How is Dh doing on WW too? And that sweet little Joshua- I pray that he and the rest of your family are doing fine.

Wilma~ how are you? I think of you often, up in beautiful Canada! How has the weather been there? Have you been able to walk (I hope!)

Sami~ how is your nephew doing? And your diet? Did you get on the scale?

Teaki~ I pray that the situation with your son and his wife has changed and that hearts are softened. Please keep us updated so that we can pray effectively.

Today was another busy day. I got some painting done in the dining room (2 walls)~ but now that has me started with that kind of project. Got a walk in this am. My eating has been ok.



Pravda~ how is your cold? Hope that you are drinking lots of water and hot fluids! Good for the cold and the diet!

Gotta go and pick up Dd from a party. Hope that your weekend is going well. (and I hope that I did not miss anyone!)

Sorry I have not posted but had some upsetting news a teen I thought a lot of lost his father this week it extra sad because the father killed himself. I went to the service and was moved by the Pastor he really had a gift to comfort and give the message. Please pray for the family it is so hard to pick up after a loss like this. The friends name is Ben.

pravada-I think I caught your cold I am feeling it in my chest. So glad to hear from you again. I have missed you.

Ginny-How is work going? Praying it is going well. How is your DS doing?

Hello my friends!!! :wave: I'm back, I'm back. I must admit that this is good for me because every time I've either been on vacation or away for any reason, that's when I tend to stay away from here for MONTHS.....but here I am, back again. :) and do I need y'all!!! I did nothing but eat while in Florida. I haven't weighed in but I'll tell you one thing, when I do weigh tomorrow morning, you will all hear me crying from where you are :( So be ready to lift me up ~ I'm gonna need y'all...........

vacation was great though. Saw my daugher, my mom, brother, dad and step mother, my sisters and their families.....so it was really nice. Oh, did I mention that all I did was eat??? Oh, yeah, I did.....:rolleyes:

I want to congratulate all of you that did so well while I was gone and lost those pounds. WTG!! I'll have some 'catch up' to do now.

I am praying for all of you who have posted concerns and needs for you, family and friends. I will add all of you to my prayer list. Sorry I am not mentioning each of you individually but I have to run. Laundry, grocery shopping and clean up....all the 'after vacation' stuff ya know.

Have a wonderful Sunday evening and I'll talk to you all tomorrow when I come on here and START OVER.

How is everyone this morning? I hope doing GREAT! I was basically OP all weekend except for a Girl scout cookie or two. URGH!!!! I had a few weak moments but overall did good. The old iron box this morning I hope is lying to me that I have gained. I exercised 1 1/4 miles Saturday plus around the house working but didn't Sunday.......felt bad and couldn't make myself. :s:

ZOE~ So good to see you back!!!! Glad you had a GREAT time!!! I would think Florida would be fantastic this time of the year! Don't worry about the eating thing, just put it behind you and get serious now. We are all here to back you up so let's go, hup 1, hup 2, hup 3, hup.................

Sami~ So sorry to hear about your friend's dad. We will pray for Ben and his family. I'm sure that is so hard on the young man. Congratulations on the ONE lb loss!!!!!!! Yay!!!! Here's your bubbles.... .. .oO OoO ooo OoO O oOo Oo oO O o Oo oOo oO oOOo OoOoO O oO Oo !!!!!! Keep up the good work!!!!

Ginny~ How fun to redecorate a room!! I love doing that, it's so much fun especially if you have the funds to buy some new things. We have a new home since August and I'm still working on decorating. One project at a time. Good for you getting that walk in and eating right. You will see positive results!

Missing you Patricia, Pravda, Teaki, Wilma, Monica, and anyone else I missed. Come back as soon as you can.

Well, better get the walk in this morning. Have a good Monday everyone!!!!!!
