HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL ROSALYN

Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance.
It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

THank you so much for posting info on walks/races. I am looking for some 5K's. I would particularly like to find some that include dogs, but those are rare.

The rain isn't horrible today but it is still overcast. I'm still home with the flu but I am feeling like a little sunshine is all I need to get over it. I need my body including my lungs to dry out.

I,too,miss the sunshine.We live way out in the boonies of S/W Oregon down near Cave Junction,not far from the Calif.line.This has been a doozie of a winter and our neighbor who keeps track of the local weather said this is one of the wettest winters in this area he has ever witnessed and March was particularily bad.Well at least we have,from our house,a beautiful view of the upper snow and everything is very green.More rain expected.Hubby and I are going up to Coos Bay to spend the night Tues.We just want to get away for a day or two.Come on sunshine.

I've heard the saying "April showers bring May flowers", but for Oregon, it's more like, "Nov-April showers bring May flowers". LOL! Can't wait for the sun to shine more!! I'm ready to get in some outdoors time and soak up some rays!! emoticon

Welcome back to the team and hope you can get back to your Goal again, and I am a believer of staying with the team even when you get to the Goal, because that is what happens, we go up again.

Hi everyone. I just reset my goals and they directed me back to my Oregon team... I joined sparkpeople a year ago last January... I made my goal weight in October.. but old habits took over during the holidays... so now I have been trying just about everything to STOP the gaining back part and start the loosing again part of the journey... I gained 11 pounds and for the last month just holding my own.. not gaining or loosing.. so I thought I would reset all my goals... join back in with my teams.... and read the book again... literaly start back from day one ... I hope to be a much more active team member, I have limited time but I'm faster at this now than I was last year...LOL..I'm here on the Coast as well. we have had everything in the last 3 days..rain,hail, winds, sun... I hoping the sun will come out for a few days... we need to dry out a little... have a great day... Ronie

That's great.. It's a wonderful way for people to get to know eachother while maintaining a healthier lifestyle! I've been addicted since I found it. I've added about 100 recipes to my book I think! I can't wait to try some of them out. I especially like that I can create a menu and shopping list (Shopping lists help me from over loading my cart with junk food!) I'm so glad I found this site.

We have the same problem here. We get a take-out box and decide beforehand how many meals the one meal out becomes. Sometimes we even get 4 dinners for the price of one!

DAISYPOWER2, I have the same problem, my husband has a sweet tooth. since I do most of the shopping, I asked him to give me two treats he wants me to stock nothing else. I buy only one bag a week and he decided how much to eat per day. It helps me take some control and he has lost of weight as well.
Another thing we are doing is keeping record of the money we save by not eating out. We plan to go out for a nice dinner/date with the savings.

hello everyone.. my name is daisy and i am from gresham oregon. I have just joined this site. I was hoping there were others from gresham as i would love a workout buddy or just someone to meet for coffee or something to discuss our goals and triumphs or struggles. I find myself wanting to go out to eat a lot.. and not a lot of options out there for us dieters. I love salad bars.. but hard to get the hubby to go with me. he loves snack foods and sweets, and fatty foods. how do i diet with him eating and drinking things i love but cant have. such a struggle.

I'm about to celebrate my one year anniversary with Sparkpeople. Thought I share some information about myself and a party idea by our team.

I live in Washington County, enjoy bike riding, did the Providence Bridge Ride for the first time in 2010 and will be repeating in 2011. I had never been to Hagg Lake but biked around the lake (and then some) once this year, also did the Leif-Erickson trail, this year, in Forest Park.

Speaking of Hagg Lake...there is a beautiful pavillion there that would make a great place for us to meet one another...ride bikes and have a picnic this summer. The lake is in Forest Grove, 25 miles SW of Portland. Anybody interested? (If so send me a message and I'll start a Hagg Lake topic here.) Likely most easily reached for Multnomah and Washington County residents...but all interested "Official Oregon Team Members" are welcome.

I've maintained a health club membership to Bally's for almost 30 years. Now I just need to GET there regularly....again.

Mini medical school lecture from U of Calif. (S.F.) My current favorite and one I recommend anyone interested in weight loss or healthy eating read.
