Hello, Vanessa,

How was your week/weekend/Sunday? I have so much to tell you. First, I got the flu last week. I collapsed in my bed and pretty much stayed there for 5 days. I wrote about those days on my blog.

I got up on Saturday and walked for 30 minutes. Saturday's events as well as Sunday's plans are also mentioned on that same blog.

That leaves todays' activities. I'm going to blog it tomorrow, but I'll give you the highlights. My children came over for our monthly Sunday Family Dinner. The food was delicious,alway is and I stayed in calorie count. The best part of the evening was playing Pictionary. We have so much fun laughing, joking, accusing the other team of 'cheating', all in fun - my team lost, I feel I still won, because my eldest granddaughter 16 years old and my son-in-law was on the same team, and it was great to have the 'us against them competitive feeling.'
Everybody left at 9:30.

These, as well as other, happy events, some planned...some spontaneous, made waking up so worthwhile.

And so....how was your week/weekend/Sunday? I'd love to hear about it.

Until then Aloha, Lisa

Thank you for commenting on my blog!

And yes, I felt INCREDIBLY strong. It is a powerful feeling for someone who felt powerless for a long time.

Hello Vanessa,
I'm glad you're still keeping with Sparkpeople. That BodyPump sounds sore, I'm not ready for that pain yet. I'm walking every day now. I even walked to church this last Sunday.

Last Tuesday I weighed in at 213 pounds - a lost of 11 pounds. Then, I went out to Eggs and Things and had waffles with strawberries and whipped cream AND Pork chops, eggs with rice. OMGosh! I ate a Reeses' Peanut Butter Cup - both of em AND a Hershey's with Almonds bar. OMGosh!! By Saturday the scale was going up and on Sunday I weighed 217 pounds OMGollyGoshGosh! Needless to say, I got on the ball. Water flush - 10 plus cups - fruit and veggies for fiber for 48 hours, and on Tues I weighed 215. This morning - Wed. - I jumped on the scale, expecting no progress - when I was back to 213.
Last Tues. 213.4 this Wednesday 213.8. I'll take that.

I guess I got cocky about my new numbers that I had a lot to "play" with. Instead, it scared me nuts! I'll never do that again. (crossing my fingers and toes)

I want to change the subject a bit, and tell you a bit about myself. I am a mother of 4 grown children. I have daughters your age. My eldest daughter is 31, I have a daughter making 29 on Friday and another daughter who'll be 28 in March. I see that your goal is to lose weight by 30, so I thought I mention that. I also have a son, but he'll be 38, also on Friday. Yes, I have 2 children born on the same day 9 years apart. Go figure! I know I am old enough to be your mother, but I hope we can still be friends.

Are you from Hawaii? I am Hawaiian and lived here nearly all my life. I tried living in California, but got so homesick I was home within a year. Do you live on the military base? What restaurants do you go to? I love the Mexican Restaurant in Aiea next to the bowling alley. Yum!

I love camping. We just went camping in Hauula during the Martin Luther King holiday, and we're planning another camping trip this March 20-22 for my daughter's birthday.

Well, I'm going to leave some points about me for my next letter. Please stay in touch. You're my only "island connection" on SP. Until next time - aloha emoticon

Thanks, Vanessa, for being so supportive on my blog. I added you as a Sparkfriend.

I live on Oahu, too in Liliha. What island do you live on? Hawaii Sparkers is one of my teams, and you can catch me there. I've been on SP before and lost 60 pounds, 260-200. The transformation was brilliant, just brilliant. From a 22 to 16, so I know it works.

So far so good. You have a fabulous weekend and I will talk to you later. Much aloha, Lisa emoticon
