I'm overdue for a Cholesterol Ck and plan on getting it done during Spring Vacation. So I have almost 2 more months to lose my holiday weight. I keep losing it during the week, but the weekend keeps putting it back on. Need to work on controlling my weekend eats.

Well, we didn't get the 5 inches of snow, but just enough to cause a 2 hr school delay. It was cold this morning and getting colder this evening. There also doesn't seem to be any hope of warmth any time soon.

Day started off warm, but quickly turned cold with slight drizzle. Snow is suppose to begin falling later tonight. I was hoping that we were done with the snow, but appears we're going to get from 2 to 5 inches.

Today was a sunny day, but very windy. This week wasn't a very healthy eating week. Valentine cookies and other sweets kept coming in all week.

Hoping the sweets are gone and that the new week will be sweetless.

Happy weekend to all.

Eating an egg a day shouldn't affect your cholesterol too much. I've been eating one a day for a while at breakfast time.

I tried to do that but I don't like meat enough and I was afraid I would eat too many eggs and send my cholesterol off the charts.

Hi all. Just checking in. Scale is still showing that 5 pounds so I am going back to nothing but meat and eggs and go from there. I got another part time job so not much computer time for the next couple days.

Really nice day to be out. Had to shop for things to make Valentine cookies tomorrow for the teachers and students for Valentine's Day on Monday. Hubby and I are also celebrating Valentine's Day early as well. We plan on going out to lunch instead of dinner. Hoping the good weather continues.

Hi everyone. Another week of no loss to speak of. I did get started exercising again so maybe that will help. I also quit taking my medication, doctor approved so that might help too. We shall see.

I tried to be good - Honest! My husband took his Mom and I out for a Valentine's Day Dinner tonight - to beat the mob. We went to a steak house. I had my salad with a vinaigrette dressing, a dinner roll with a small amount of butter, (Ouch!) 3 ribs, (2 would have been better) 1/2 of the baked potato with half of the butter, and water not soda. The rest is in the fridge.

I must say, I have a great man for a husband. He is the best thing that has ever happened in my life and I love him with all of my heart. The best part - Knowing that he loves me back the same.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day.

Hi Everyone, I've been with SP for about a week. I truly love this program. Even if I didn't have High Cholesterol I would still join. Unfortunally, I do have High Cholesterol and don't want to start meds. First, I would rather try to lower it by watching my nutrition and exercise. My total C. is 245 - the HDL is 53, and the LDL is 152. So, I need to work on the bad stuff. Also, I'm going to try to lower my Triglycerides. They are just under the normal mark. My Dr. is sure that if I make a habit of watching what and how much I eat and exercising regulary that I will be back on track in little time. Wish me luck.

After the snow, icy rain and lost power, I'm ready for Spring as well. Today is sunny, which is a good thing since we're going out to lunch. But unfortunately, more bad weather is headed our way, so I plan on enjoying the good weather as much as I can.

Carmen, you're keeping your sense of humor emoticon . This winter seems to be exceptionally long - a storm every week is a little much. Spring is one of my favorite months and I can't wait to see my plants come to life. When I went to trudge through the snow and fill all my bird feeders again, I really took a look at some of my bushes/trees and can see lots of damage. Maybe it's natures way of pruning?!?!?

Mayber - remember that song by Gloria Gaynor "I will survive"? She was singing about a man. I'm singing about our winter!

Oh GMACRM I so agree with your visualization
It has been a long winter for us too
Yearn for the green of spring and warm breezes
Have a four foot fence and only 6 inches is sticking above the snow
Our dog just hops right out of the fence if we do not watch her
Vitamin D was recommended to us too but do not notice difference

Mary Anne, I have been on Vitamin D for a couple of years cause it's supposed to help my mood during our md-west winters. Nothing is going to help my mood this year except for spring and a warm breeze and feeling the sun on my face. I have to settle for visualization.

Good morning, all. I may get out of my house today but it's freezing temps so may not.

CKPete - I was once off my meds but as I put the weight back on and quit my fitness program, the meds are back. Plan to be off of them again this year.

We didn't get the snow but got ice, freezing rain and finally rain. We did not power for a while and they said there could be more outages due to the temps dropping and the wind picking up.

CKPETE, there are many times when people have been able to go off meds if they can manage it with "diet" and lifestyle changes.

Stay warm everyone. And for those of you who are warm, how about sending some our way!

Hi everyone. Just got back from the doc--- trigs down to 125, but HDL 49. She wants me on Lipitor because I am a bad girl who just can't stick to a health plan. This site is my hope. Once I go on this med, will I ever go off?

We ended up losing our phone and internet at 8 last night then at 9:30 we lost our cable and had to get out the antenna to watch over the air. Everything was back up this morning. I spent an hour outside cleaning the ice off my car and breaking up ice before it froze back over. Though I'm sure the salt isn't working anymore. We had 3 big limbs fall in the front yard and driveway, barely missing my car. I have to get out in the morning and go to the store. I also rescheduled my dr appointment for next week.

Chicago got hit a blizzard and there's no leaving my house for a day or 2. I live in a townhouse association and they haven't cleaned driveways or sidewalks yet. There's about 2 ft of snow on the ground. Good day to catch up with my SP messages and maybe get started with my income taxes. Stay warm and be careful.

Good afternoon everyone. I'm in PA but grew up in ME and lived in MA for 21 years before moving here. So, like Pat, I'm use to this stuff. Can't say I like it but use to it. Just hate it when we lose power.

Tried to walk up the driveway this morning emoticon to get the paper and mail. Had to keep one foot in the snow but just slid back down to the house - very interesting. Everything is covered with a sheet of ice. The second part won't be coming until tonight.

Stay safe every one.

I'm in Seattle and today we can actually see that strange yellow orb that usually only shows up in the summer.

The first storm just arrived. I have lived and loved Maine for so long we take it as it comes. There is always someone worse off than us. My pantry is stocked and feel sure we are prepared. Power outages are the biggest worry. We feel secure we have it covered. Pat in Maine.
JUST realised Computer only has 4 hours back up. I told DH buy the less expensive one for me, we completely overlooked that one issue.
I might go in to computer withdrawal. JUST JOKING never thought about it though, Pat. emoticon

Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!
