***************************************
Been with , Spark People for 9 and be 10 years come March 2014. That is a long time to be on a program and not lose a lot of weight. There is more to a person, healing than just losing weigh. I had a lot of emotional healing and guilt, to work through. I feel that, I am in good spirits and emotionally healthier than I was back in 2004: I have allot of healthy things I have to deal with, and believe that I will overcome, them. I have lost people in my life that I loved very much and had many years of excepting, and not drowning in sorrow, any longer. I am ready to move forward and succeed. I have not been the best parent around, but my children and grandchildren love me. Who could ask for more. I feel that I am happy and look forward to living life one day at a time.. Doing my best to make the best of the life I have and, working on improving and enjoying each new day. Bee *****************************************

Having a hard time of staying on my program. Had a hardy Breakfast, going to have to eat lighter for the rest of the day. Goal is to lose 40 pounds will put me in to the 200 ' s. Believe that once I break that 299 mark that my weight loss will come easier emotionally. Breaking the 300 pound mark has been like a brick mental wall. Got down to 303 9 years ago then went back up again been up and down for years. Going to break that mental block this year. 2011
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Working on not allowing my enter child to take control of my program, when it comes to food. Or working through pain of doing exercises and such. 350 - 338

Do or not do! my choice for to day. Choose to succeed one day at a time.
I started my program over why no weigh loss.
My top weight was 486 pounds. I could hardly walk and breath at the same time. Over the years I managed to lose down to 303, then went back up 345 and back down to 332 when I first joined Spark People in 2004.
I have yo yo ed a bit over a 7 year period. Working on Emotional healing. I need my knees replaced , But I want to be under 140 do do that operation. Going to have to do both legs at the same time because they will not get me in there for a second time. That is why I have to get my weight down.
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
To day I started exercising again. Chair exercises mostly. Walking around the house some.

****************************************

Go girl, keep it up.. remembering that it can be gained much faster than it took to lose the weigh.

I was like you, could eat any thing, gained weigh.. lost it and gained it back time and time a gain, with life, problems, and going through many trails, of dealing with being single and homeless, and generally un happy in side, with while wearing th mask of happyness, for others to see.. but in side I have been dying a slow death, my tools were and are my fork..and knif and spoon.
Got up to 486 pounds, worked down to 303 up to 30 yo yo ing through out the years, but have not gone past 350 for the last 9 years. I still have some 220 pounds to lose.
I am thank ful to Spark people, may be with Spark people I may have gone back up over 400 pounds..
I am back, working on losing weight. 329 pounds.. Goal of 120 = 130 high weight..131

Edit Comment
**********************************
Life brings changes, come next year may be moving down to Sacramento CA This may not happen. it is a big ? mark.
********** If it does happen, It will be a bit scary moving to a new area, learning to get around Sacramento, is not a stick in the mud type town like where I live now.

Will my son wife really want me living that close to them! She says yes! so that eases my mind a bit.
Now to get mentally ready to move, leave my two younger daughter and grand daughter move to Sacramento from Washington. Life bring changes, the girls said they will follow me after they finish school.. Things happen, that could keep them from coming down to Sacramento, like meting a man..that does not want to move out of WA. Face that later if it should happen.
That what is happening in my life at the moment, get my mind set on moving a starting life over again in a new area..next year.

SAY! SWEET! KIND WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY..



DEAR LORD

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head.

God Bless all my family
Where ever they may be,
Keep them warm
And safe from harm
For they're so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do,
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Please bless my computer too.

Now I know that it's unsusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord....

You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends,
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my friends.

I know so much more about them
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you.
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above, To bless those in my address book That's filled with so much love.


Amen
This goes with the little bear, at the computer - To the left.

******************************

My Weight loss goal is to lose - 30 _ 35 pounds during the (October 01 - Dec. 31) last half of this year.

(With Out Spark people, I Would Have Gained All My Weight Back! 332 ) AT 330 AGAIN.

It is not easy to get started to lose weight, when we don't like our selves at the weight they are at and it seems like an impossible task, but slow consistant progress will get us to our goals, one by one. As long as we don't stop working toward the prize. My goal is 120 -130 pounds.
When I REACH 140 -150 I will make up my mind to stay there or lose more weight.

********** Prayer for Strength and Wisdom"

Grant me the strength from day to day
To bear what burdens come my way.
Grant me throughout this bright New Year
More to endure and less to fear.
Help me live that I may be
From spite and petty malice free.

Let me not bitterly complain
When cherished hopes of mine prove vain,
Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage
Some fair tomorrow's spotless page.
Lord, as the days shall come and go
In courage let me stronger grow.
...
Lord, as the New Year dawns today
Help me to put my faults away.
Let me be big in little things;
Grant me the joy which friendship brings.
Keep me from selfishness and spite;
Let me be wise in what is right.

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye.
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
--Edgar A. Guest

I am a small and precious child, my dads been sent to fight.
The only place I'll see his face, is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days for my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad, but I am proud.
My daddy's got your back.

I am a caring mother.
My son has gone to war.
My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before.
Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning black.
I may be scared, but I am proud.
My son has got your back.

I am a strong and loving wife, with a husband soon to go.
There are times I'm terrified in a way most never know.
I bite my lip, and force a smile as I watch my husband pack.
My heart may break, but I am proud.
My husband's got your back.

I am a Soldier.
Serving Proudly, standing tall.
I fight for freedom, yours and mine, by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing the thanks it sometimes lacks.
Say a prayer that I'll come home.
It's me who's got your back.

LIFE IN GENERAL :

SOME TIME WE HAVE DAY'S WHEN WE JUST WANT TO GIVE UP!
BUT THAT IS NOT RIGHT THING TO DO. BECAUSE ONCE WE GIVE UP WE HAVE LOST THE BATTLE!

SUCCESS CAN ONLY BE OBTAINED BY PRESISTANCE.. NOT QUITING UNTIL THE JOB IS DONE...

THE ONE THING ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS IS THE JOB IS NOT DONE ONCE THE WEIGHT HAS BEEN LOST...
BECAUSE IT TAKES WORK TO MAINTAIN OUR GOAL WEIGHT WHAT EVER THAT WEIGHT MAY BE FOR YOU OR ME.

I WANT TO FEEL EACH SMALL SUCCESS ALONG THE WAY TO MY IDEA WEIGHT. I WANT TO CHEER OTHERS ON AS THEY HIT EACH GOAL ON THE PATH TO THERE LOW GOAL WEIGHT. WISH EVERYONE SUCCESS IN ALL AREAS OF THERE LIVES.

Paul Harvey:::
THIS GUY SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THIS COUNTRY!

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

We don't even sing "God Bless America " any more in schools.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

PAUL HARVEY'S ON AIR PRAYER:

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance."

"We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good," but that is exactly what we have done. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today! cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!"

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, "The Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends.
***************************
"If you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything."
***********************************
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that! We again can be called "One nation under God."

One Nation Under God! Sounds right to me. Share this with a friend if you like.
******************************

Sometimes we do not feel
like we want to feel
Sometimes we do not achieve
what we want to achieve
Sometimes things that happen
do not make sense
Sometimes life leads us in directions
that are
beyond our control
It is at these times, most of all
that we need someone
who will quietly understand us
and be there to support us
I want you to know
that I am here for you
in every way
and remember that though
things may be difficult now
tomorrow is a new day

-Poem by Susan Polis Schutz

NEW GOAL MAY 22, 2009

*************************
One can't move on until we get a few road blocks, or emotional, mental clutter out or our way!

These obstacles aren't tangible, but mental.

So while they may be harder to remove, it is not impossible.

But once we do, remove them, we can go any where our hearts desires.

Dare to vision! and dream, your way to success. While working to ward, ones goals.

Happy mothers day!

Message: The upcoming Mother�s Day provides a perfect opportunity to the women in my life. Have you ever noticed that women take care of others before they care for themselves? I am sure that this has something to do with biological functions, probably ingrained into our caring behaviors as children, but you need not have had a child to be a caring and loving woman and thus �mother others!�

Therefore, I wanted to express my appreciation for you in my life. Thank you for being you!

So often I meet women who say I am just a homemaker. Wow, that is a full time job in itself. Then I meet women who work one or two full time jobs, one being a homemaker, as well. It amazes me to see so many women who raise a family, cook, clean, and provide a shoulder to lean on . . . you are all SUPERWOMEN!! So I want to remind you to love how special you are to those around you. You are fantastic that you are balancing and juggling so many things at the same time. You are powerful and strong, you can become whatever you want, and you can say it with conviction!
Thank you for being you!

Hugs, TRISTA

we sometimes throws us A WAKE UP CALL!
I had mine, at first I did not thank much about it. Until my sister said, Brenda that wasn't funny, mini stroke with some small vains the went to my ears. Didn't scare me.
But it scarred my sister, all she could think a bout was me weighing 330 pounds, and me being to over weight for anyone to help lift me, due to excess weight. That was frighten to her.

I am still thinking it will not happen to me even though it has.

How foolish can one be. May be I just don't care enough about my self to do the right thing. That's taking care of my self and get this weight off for life.

It's that "little something extra" that puts you ahead of the pack. An enthusiastic person is charismatic -- you can't help but respond to their enthusiasm and catch some of their "fire" as well. And an enthusiastic person is a successful person. As Walter Chrysler, the founder of Chrysler Motors, has said,

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis."

WE AS PARENTS NEED TO INSTILL THESE VALUES IN TO OUR CHILDREN MINDS AN HEARTS. IN ORDER TO KEEP THIS COUNTRY STRONG!

OTHER COUNTRIES, VALUE THERE ELDERLY! HAVE BETTER MEDICAL COVERAGE FOR ALL THERE PEOPLE. OUR GOVERMMENT, HAS TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD MEDICAL.

WE SHOULD NOT HAVE HUNGRY PEOPLE HERE IN AMERICA! OR HAVE PEOPLE NOT BEING ABLE TO AFFORD TO CHOSE BETWEEN MEDICINE OR FOOD. MOTHER, FATHER , BABIES & CHILDREN SHOULD NOT HAVE TO GO HUNGRY, BECAUSE THE PARENTS ARE OUT OF WORK.

PEOPLE THAT COME TO THIS COUNTRY ALL SHOULD BE LEGAL.

your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

THE TRUTH! HA HA
And for those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all the conflicting medical studies:

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than
Americans.

4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausage and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION:
Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Everybody Knows:
You can't be all things to all people
You can't do all things at once
You can't do all things equally well
You can't do things better than everyone else
Your humanity is showing just like everyone else's

SO:
You have to find out whow you are, and be that.
You have to decide what comes first, and do that
You have to discover your strengths, and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with others.
Because no one else is in the contest pf *being you*

Then
You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.
You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your limitations.
You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due you
And you'll be a most vital mortal.

Dare To Believe:
That you are wonderful, unique person.
That you are a once-in-all-history event.
That it's more than a right, it's your duty, to be who you are.
That is not a problem to be solve, but a gift to cherish.
And you'll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down.

That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I have the right to be angry,

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do
with what types of experiences you've had
and what you've learned from them
and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe...
That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

the world doesn't stop for your grief.

NOTHING IS IMPOSIBLE!
SO DON'T ALLOW YOUR MIND INTO THINKING NEGATIVELY:

Top 10 Exercise Excuses -- BUSTED!
**************************************
I AM THE BEST EXCUSE MAKER! ALWAYS HAVE AN EXCUSE! HOW ABOUT YOU! Bee

1. No time! We all know this is the oldest excuse in the book, but it continues to top the charts. Time, schmime. Whether it's five minutes or 45 minutes, any amount counts. Keeping your mind connected to the body can be accomplished with short bursts or long bouts of exercise. Exercise can be effective without having to spend hours a day. And yes, even breaking up your bouts of exercise can have a positive impact.

Certainly it's important to get in longer sets of cardio exercise to improve your cardiovascular system, but rather than giving up if time is short, power pack what little time you have. Five, 10 or 15 minutes can provide benefits to your health. Time is on your side no matter how much or how little you have -- make it count!

pagebreak 2. No equipment! It's been said that you can tell a great trainer by his ability to train a client without equipment. While equipment isn't necessary it can certainly enhance your fitness routine and add variety. But don't let lack of equipment be the reason you don't exercise. You can get fit with the most high-tech equipment in the world and not have to pay a penny.

What is it? It's your body! We have the gift of gravity and a body full of pulleys and levers (bones, muscles, joints). Those elements combined will do the trick! Some ideas of equipment-free exercises? Push-ups, wall squats, crunches and dips. You can use soup cans for bicep curls, shoulder presses and tricep kickbacks. For your cardiovascular needs pavement works just fine in place of a treadmill. You have all you need from head to toe. So take that body and get your money's worth!

3. I'm too tired! As am I... from hearing that excuse over and over again! The truth is exercise will increase your energy level . It's a hard sell getting people to believe that exercise will get rid of ups and downs in energy. Exercise gives you that extra push to stay perky during that 2-4 p.m. down time. Actually, you will probably notice that your sleeping improves, thus increasing your energy level. Being tired all the time can be a direct result of inactivity, poor nutrition and lack of water. Start small and watch that fatigue become just a bad dream.

4. I don't know what to do! The sad truth with this excuse is that we have forgotten how to have fun. We are led to believe that "fancy schmancy" health clubs are what we need in order to be successful with a fitness program. The numerous choices of exercise options end up leaving us confused and overwhelmed. It would be like me going into the cockpit of a plane and the pilot saying, "Go ahead, and give her a try!" Something tells me I'd take one look and say, "Thanks, but no thanks".

Don't make exercise rocket science. MAKE IT FUN! Why not hire a personal trainer to help give you some direction? Not only can a good, well-qualified trainer keep you safe and enlightened, you may be directed toward exercises you really like. You don't have to spend a fortune hiring a trainer or buying tons of equipment. You can simply experiment -- find what you like and you are good to go!

pagebreak 5. I have a bad back! A bad back is nothing to make light of. Chronic back issues can minimize the movement and quality of everyday life. But the truth remains that simply getting in shape and being active regularly will diminish -- and many times eliminate -- back pain. Obviously, you need to check it out with your doc first. Simple back exercises and abdominal exercises in conjunction with cardiovascular exercise and stretching can make all the difference in the world.

6. I'm too far gone! Hey, it ain't over until it's over. What about the stories of severely overweight people getting in shape? What about the heart attack patient that becomes active after surgery? There is rarely a point of no return when it comes to getting back in shape. I work with women in their 60s -- many swear they're in better shape now than when they were in their 20s. When you believe you're too far gone, just practice a little common sense. Take it slow, do it smart and most important, be patient with the process.

Sometimes the road seems never-ending but exercise and healthy eating healthy eating should not be a pond but a never-ending ocean. Why? Because exercise and eating well shouldn't end when you reach the point of feeling better. Exercise and eating well should become a way of life that goes on and on.

7. I'm too old! Look at Jack LaLane. What is he? In his 80s? There are marathon runners in their 70s! There is a population of people in their 60s and 70s saturating the exercise world. If you believe you are too old to exercise then you believe you are too old for anything. I'm not saying you've got to pull a tugboat strapped to your back or run a marathon. Just begin a walking program, strength-training program or water aerobics to bring new life back into your perceived old life.

8. It's too boring! Vary your exercise program. Anything will become boring when you're doing the same thing day in and day out.

You can't expect that you won't burn out if you do the same routine everyday. Explore your options. There is so much to do but you've got to be willing to do the research and find what you enjoy.

pagebreak Obviously, if you live in the Midwest or East during the winter your exercise options diminish a bit. But you may even find that snowshoeing is a cool thing and you love it. It might be a bit difficult to continue in the summer, but that's your opportunity to find a new activity. Don't make exercise monotonous.

Even on a treadmill, people set the time for 30 minutes and just walk. Play with your elevation and speed -- you can make it fun, interesting and challenging. Will you ever love exercise? Stop looking at it as exercise and find something fun to keep you interested and motivated.

9. I'm not athletic! I don't have an athletic bone in my body. Athlete's foot was as close as I got. Therefore, I simply exercise and don't compete! You do not have to be an athlete in order to be active or begin an exercise program.

Coordination may be helpful if you're going into archery or rugby, but putting one step in front of the other requires little athletic ability. Walking, biking and swimming do not require excellence in form, so relieve yourself of the pressure of feeling like you have to perform. Just find what you enjoy and do it!

10. I always get too sore or injure myself! For those who follow the adage "no pain, no gain," you need to reprogram your thinking. That saying was pushed in the '70s as a novice exerciser's way of feeling like they did something. The sad truth: many injuries were the result of that mentality. Pain is not good; gain in strength and endurance is good. You will not gain if you are in pain. You will end up exercising yourself right out of a regular program.

If you're just beginning, you must take it slow. January 1 seems like the day everyone decides they're going to test their pain threshold. By January 7 half of those are working excuse #10.

pagebreak As your strength and endurance increase you add a bit more either with time or intensity. But if there are any signs of pain, you should stop. There is a big difference between challenging yourself and proving that you are a stud and immune from pain and injury.

Be smart about exercise. Hire an expert if you need help and don't do too much too soon. The longer you stay pain- and injury-free, the more likely you are to hang on to your routine. That's a good thing.

We may not know the real reason why want to exercise, or we haven't discovered a reason that's valid enough for us to stick with it. Explore your reasons for wanting to begin exercising.

Don't use weight loss -- it's too general. If it is weight loss, explore why you want to lose weight. Is it to feel better? Is it because you're going to be 40 and you want to be fabulous? Maybe your doctor encouraged it for disease prevention. Find the reason that matters most to you and your excuses will become a part of the past
Keep Sparkling !!!
Love ya', Flutterfli

Hi Brenda! So glad to see you back here and that you're maintaining your weight loss. My weight goes up and down like that proverbial yo yo. I've started Weight Watchers, and so far it seems to be working and I'm losing and feeling better. My goal is to lose 50 pounds by the end of the year. Glad you're in this with me!

Lost 15 pounds my first weight in at Curves last Friday. Started another 90 Day Challenge... As of Today. 04/01/2013 Growing stronger is my exercise goal. Losing weight will be my reward. Changing, from a fool, hardy, food plan, to a the D diet, will be a challenge for me, along with drinking my water. Yesterday folly of eating what I wanted, put my blood reading at 331 ... so have to get back at being more careful. emoticon
