Yes they do have huge crowds if there is anything going on at Taylor. Victory CSA is only a few miles from my house. Let me know when you are in town and maybe we can meet at Ivanhoe's for a healthy salad and treat ourselves to ice cream.

I am from South Bend area... and live out in the boonies. I can't believe the plow came out last night.I didn't think it would be here till today. The sun is shining and the snow is melting off the roof but it is 3 below with the wind chill sooo I guess I will stay home and get some things done. Burned some extra calories yesterday shoveling snow.... wooo hoo!!

I've been to Ivanhoe's. Best not to go at supper time on Sunday in nice weather. They have a huge crowd. But it was worth the wait. We are going to participate in the Victory Acres CSA which has an Upland address. I live about an hour from you.

Good morning team. I thought a lot of people might be housebound today. Hope you have electricity.

The city plowed us out and sanded a couple hours later than the norm. Not sure if we are under travel restrictions or not.

P.S. I am west of Fort Wayne.

We had a beautiful day at the fair on Wed. A great way to save calories was to share with my 4 year old grandson. I had a few bites of some of my favorites and enjoyed the fun with him.

Enjoyed hearing the rain last night but know it will be muggy today. I have to go and pull carrots and check the melons in the garden. How do you tell when a garden watermelon is ready? Do you thump it like in the grocery? You can tell this is the first time we had melons.

Have a good day.

Hi! Everyone,
Been home a week and finally back into a routine or so I thought then my husband got down in bed. Life is always exciting! Gained 6 pounds on vacation but have lost 4 so and pleased with that. Hope the next 2 will be gone in a couple weeks. Hope all of you are doing well on your journey

So glad the picnic went well. Sure wish I could have been there.
June is going to be a crazy busy month for us, so I need to really watch what I put in my mouth since I don't want to regain what I have lost

Thanks, Lisa! I ate way too much fruit & a salad yesterday. They just didn't sit well on my stomach. I'm feeling much better today. I'm pretty excited about tomorrow's picnic! I was going to bring a side dish of veggies, but now I'm thinking fruit. I do love fruit!
Have a great day!

Today is my weekly weigh in day and it is good. I am at my goal of 119. It has been a long hard process but so worth it. I am going to continue to be on here so I can encourage all of you as you reach your goals. If I did it so can you

Glad to hear you got to visit with the kids and had a nice time.

We set up our tent in the back yard about 8feet away from the campfire or so, the kids had fun pretending they were on a real camping trip, lol. They got to roast marshmellow and hotdogs which is always frun too. Plus we swam in our pool a bunch (its not real big but we all love it!)

The day before yesterday we went to cliffty falls and tried to do trail #4- emphasis on the TRIED, lol. I think I might have gotten bout 1/3 of the way through and I realised I couldn't make it back if I went any farther! I felt so pathetic all panting and pouring sweat (boy was it hot Saturday!) Then we went to Madison down by the river and they happened to be having a cool car show (I'll up load pics of it all to my facebook here in a lil while so you all can see).

When we came home we grilled out (the meat was orange bbq chicken and the veggies were squash, zuccini, red bell peppers and red onions, glazed in italian dressing~ YUMMY!!!)

Afterwards it was time to relax for the evening. Then yesterday my cousin had her 2yr anniversary diner that we went to. I watched how much I put on my plate and skipped the cake. Last night the kids spent the night with family which was nice It gave me and bobby a break and we got to swim alone and sit by the fire and relax.

So all in all it was a good weekend~ I'm still fighting my OTHER problem, but I'm hoping that this week I can get serious about getting help for it.

Well, Happy Monday and hope the rest of the week is great for everyone!

Our pool isn't huge, 4'x15' round pool. Enough to get wet and float around in, if I want. We got a lot of rain here last night, so no pool for us. DH's granddaughter graduated last night, so I was at the fairgrounds doing that all night. I have to work for a few tomorrow and on Monday. So, not much of a weekend for me. But, that's okay, at least neither are all day.
Have a great weekend!

Bakamo, I'm with Lisa. I'm on meds. When I get this crazy idea that I don't need them, everybody begs me to get back on them. They weren't doing the trick, so the doctor added more. I call them my crazy pills. (sometimes given to bi-polar people.) Mostly because before I got on them I was pretty crazy. The doctor said paranoid, I think I just scared him. Anyway, I feel much better now. Not wonderful, but normal? I guess, whatever that is. I've been struggling with this for over 2 years. So, don't stress out too much. It's life changes, not a diet. You can do it, it's one small change at a time. We're here for you!
Pool is already over 70, I got in last night. Still a bit cold, but it sure felt good!

Tootie, you chose a good week to have pool water delivered. The water should heat up real quick this week.
BOKAMO- you are not a failure! I didn't lose the weight until I decided this is it I really want to do this this time. Today when I got weighed I was point 2 away from my goal. So hopefully next week I will be there which was also my goal to reach it by the first weigh in in June. About your depression. I was one who thought taking depression meds were for the weak until I found out that depression is what made my mom try suicide. Her three sister and one niece and now myself are on meds for depression and I feel so much better. Even feeling better I still felt weak until my son said one day God has made people to make these meds so they should be used. Quite a statement from a 20 year old.
Ok, now I will get off my soapbox and wish everyone a great day

Hi everyone, I've been using sparkpeople for about a month, I had never been to the forums until I got the email about the picnic this morning. I'm kinda poking around at the moment, feeling a like a huge failure in the weight loss department and struggling with some massive depression that's been keeping me from exercising. I'll quit rambling now lol.

Wow, yesterday was a scorcher! Amazing how hot it got! The water was delivered yesterday, it was 65 degrees when we got it, and it was already almost 70 by 8:00. So, it shouldn't be too long before we can get in without going numb. I really need to lower my stress level, it's keeping me snacking. So, the weight is creeping back up, again!

That's the one thing we miss is our pool. But my youngest son and his family moved to an apartment complex with a pool. Grandpa told granddaughter he will come and go swimming with her.

Happy Monday! DH's granddaughter graduates this week, too. So, busy week for all, it looks like! We got the pool up, and the water is going to be delivered tomorrow. I can hardly wait! Bad part is it just takes so long for it to be warm enough to swim. That water they deliver is so cold! Well, I hope everybody has a great day!

Welcome Jeanetta! Thanks for the positive input, I need all I can get! It looks like you're starting of great! I think the #1 reason for success is the forums. I have a daughter trying to lose some weight (100+ pounds) and I told her she needs to post on the forums. But, you are ready when you're ready.
What a beautiful day it is already! I'm betting we'll be putting up the pool today. That's a great incentive to finish this deal!
Have a great day!

Hello Lisa, TooTieHead, Shirely721 and everyone else I missed emoticon
I'm new here, but excited and rearing to go! emoticon

Shirley I found that tidbit about history very interesting. My mothers grandma was full blooded Cherokee and my fathers grandma was full blooded Apache, so I'm always interested to know those things that are so much a part of history and heritage!

Lisa, its sooo cool that you've been able to meet your goals. I really do hope I can reach mine too~ I want to lose 50 lbs

TooTieHead, its inspirational how zealous you are in tracking and meal planning, I'm going to try to imitate that
emoticon

Ok, I'm an all or nothing type of girl.I'm 29 and I don't have time to mess around being over weight, unhealthy and unhappy anymore. So here I am and I'm going feet first! I'll be tracking and posting regularly so its nice to be here and I know we'll be seeing lots of each other.
