We live on an End Terrace and our garden goes from the front, down the side and to the back, quite large really.

As for a man to do gardening in the last 2 yrs I've gone through 7 gardeners!!! They just don't turn up or take my money and run or are soooo slow. That was when I was in 'back' recovery - so now its back to what my mother used to say:

"If you want something done --- do it yourself"!!!

Have to admit it does look lovely when tidy! Am doing everything poss to make it as 'back' friendly as possible!

Oh Jude, I so miss my large garden but I had to sell up when I was left on my own and couldn't manage the mortgage and now with my disabilities I am in a bungalow for the disabled, I do have a small amount of garden and Ian has his veg garden oh I love fresh veg don't you? Can't wait for the runner beans to come through...
Enjoy the rest of the day...

oooooooh hecky thump! I've just cleared the weeds from one of the flower beds which hasn't been touched yet this year. It didn't take me very long at all but ouch do I now ache. This is why I don't do much in the garden but of course that then means there will be much harder weeding to do later!!! Must think about getting a man in 'cos Pete hates gardening more than I do. Can't understand why we decided to buy the house with the largest garden on the estate. Duh! Yes, I do love it really.

We will have to make sure we all bring healthy food to the 'Party in the Park' in July otherwise people will have a go at us Teee Heeee.
Take good care my friends,

Hello Mandy, Bless you sweetheart, yes, I know what my weaknesses are, home made fruit cake, home made sponge cake with strawberry jam, who makes these? Yes, I do for the family!!! But I have told them I will only do the fruit cakes in future and none shall cross my lips lol...
I am now finished with the confessional lol, whose turn is it next??? Maybe my daughter she needs to lose weight so I shouldn't really be making her cake anyway but her partner Jez loves my home made cake so he too will suffer all for my weight or until my will power becomes strong once more...
I have been really good today and Maria came over, I gave her a fruit cake and I cut a slice of Ian's fruit cake and gave him it after lunch so I think I may have cracked it again - yeah - I wanted to do a high five with you lol...
See you tomorrow sweetheart, enjoy what is left of your day...

Hello Anne, since joining SP I've noticed how you support others and your comments are always so lovely.
Now its your turn to enjoy the SP support emoticon
Its still early in the year yet, so you've got plenty of time to re-focus on your goals.
Have you highlighted where your weaknesses are?

I know mine: Pringles (Yummy and morish)! and cold weather: I hibernate and can't be bothered to unwrap from a cosy blanket!

You know the song: James Taylor =
"You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am, I'll coming running........

Sounds like you are all going to be so busy today, I think I might be too. I decided to get up early so that I could get more done but I just seem to have spent more time on the laptop.
Have a great time with your family Anne and don't worry we are here to support you and won't let you go back to your old ways.
Will speak to you all later.

Good Morning folks,
I could do with some support at the moment, I was trying to keep at this weight for the summer as I never do too good through the summer months then go back to losing some in the autumn/winter but it isn't working out too good, I have gained some and I don't want to go there, I want to get back into it again, I think I need a kick up the you know what!!!
I thought if I put it here I might get to gripes with myself...
I'm frightened I shall pile it all back on again...

I hope you all have a wonderful day, I'm busy as always I have my brother visiting and my daughter is coming at the end of his visit to see him then stay on with us for a while so I will be missing again most of the day...
Much love ~ Anne xxx emoticon

It was also quite frustrating as one of the mediums picked up on someone for me but I didn't get the name or the connection so I have no idea who it was. Very intriguing - it would be interesting if another medium would pick it up. My friend - the trainee - said the spirit would have been trying to connect for a reason - I just wish I knew what it was!
What would be the best day to go to Eastwood church? I have another friend interested in going and Eastwood is nearer than Belper.

Hello Ophelia,
I have been a Spiritualist Medium now for about 20 years but have always seen Spirit. I love the work and wouldn't change anything that I do. You have to check it out and make your own mind up about it but always have an open mind and you can't judge it from just one visit you need to go several times to understand it, so I was pleased to hear you say it was interesting... I was serving Nuneaton Church tonight and it was a brilliant service, I love it when everything goes well...
Speak soon
Love Anne xx

I've had a brilliant weekend with the gang from Lincoln, who left this morning and also just come back from a meal out with some friends we haven't seen for a couple of years.
On the healthy eating front, it has been a bit of a disaster with a Chinese delivered to the house last night and a Chinese Buffet tonight. Must get seriously back to it tomorrow. Mind you it was seriously good food. OOOOOps!
Love to you all.

Hi all,

Had a serious family do last night - had lots of those empty alcohol calories - lots and lots. Never mind tomorrow is another day.

LadyAnneHoward - interested to hear the fund raising at Eastwood - I was at Belper Spiritualist Church last Thursday - supporting a friend who is a trainee medium - first time I have ever been - an interesting experience...

This is just a quickie good morning as I have a hectic day today, I'm fund raising at Eastwood Spiritualist Church for most of the day, so by the time I get home I shall be tired, then tomorrow I'm out for most of the day so I am not sure whether I shall make it here then. But I wanted to say have a super weekend, smile often and enjoy each moment no matter what you face after all every moment is a time to learn and grow...

Mand, I love them all to bits, but not ever having kids ourselves, we just aren't equipped for them. Even worse, because of our healthy lifestyle......we don't have bribes, like sweets & biscuits in the house. Hopefully Mal & Pam (the parents) will bring some stuff with them 'cos they know how hopeless we are. We will have a great time, we always do, it's just that we only found out they were coming on Wednesday & this week has been particularly busy. Hey Ho!

Great to see you here Anne, glad you are liking the new look to the team. As you know from my last couple of visits to your page, I'm stuck as well, however, like you I still have more to lose.(in my case, an awful lot more!!!!!) We will succeed I am sure of that.
I'm rushing around like a mad thing just now as our friends are coming over from Lincoln tomorrow bringing their twin 4 year olds. HELP. Our house isn't child-proof!!!!! Let's hope for sunny weather so they can play outside until bedtime.

Good morning LadyAnne,
Its always a wise move to take a step back and assess what's going on - and being comfortable in your own 'skin' is the way to start!

Nice to have you chatting, and yes, aren't things getting nice and friendly now!

Good Morning Folks,
I haven't been in here for a while, I never knew where to post stuff as there was a general board but now you are sorting things out Jude things are getting better.
I always think people need to have a general chat place so thank you Jude.
I'm not moving on the weight front at the moment but I'm not really trying at present as I am taking a break but want to maintain for a while as I feel I need my skin to catch up with everything else lol, I don't know if any of you can relate to that? I also need to know if I can maintain when I need to as it has worried me so much, so this time is for me. I do worry I won't be able to get back to losing again and I do need to lose at least another 14/18 pounds to be comfortable with myself but I always lose weight easier in the Winter another thing which seems to be unique to me lol as most people enjoy weight loss through the summer months...
I hope you are all doing ok, keep smiling and enjoy the sunshine while we may...
Love and hugs ~ Lady Anne xxx emoticon

Hello JULIE-OAK, Just read your favourite TV, I started watching the Mentalist, but only because he's rather dishy! Thought he was pretty ok in Devil Wears prada - did you see him in that?

Must admit am watching the 'Listener' thats quite good too!

PS

Hi Jude, yes I've copied/pasted and completed the 'Tell us about yourself'. which I think is a great idea, after time we do forget the details of others we've met or feel as if we don't know them well enough to be too nosey!! So lovely idea, it breaks the ice doesn't it.

Your poor shoulder, how much longer will it take to heal?

Whatever you do, don't aggravate it!! Impressed you went to Nice and Easy though - it shows willing!!!

Hi Mandy,
Have you seen the new forums I've put on, also I'm trying to update the 'Tell us about yourself' forum as well. I just thought it would be good to separate things out a bit. What do you think?
Nice & Easy wasn't so nice or easy today. I kept getting cramp in my feet and my shoulder was a bit tender after the steroid injection last friday. Still at least I did a bit.

Hi Jude, hope you enjoyed your Nice and Easy class.
We all have to go at our own pace, I'm just going a bit mad cause I really want to look good this summer, I have a goal of getting into a bikini or tankini - depending which looks the most decent - by July. So don't mind my manic exertions, I go like a bat out of hell, then slow to a tortoise pace to let my body catch up!!!

How lovely to have a meal ready when you get home,
emoticon to DH. Mind you that was a late time to finish work.

I've just been to work this morning so now deciding what to do for the rest of the day!?

My goodness you are so energetic. I got in from work about 8.15, Pete had my salad waiting for me, watched a few programmes on the tv, now he's gone to bed & I'm back on the laptop, catching up.
Got my 'Nice & Easy'(not)Fitness class tomorrow so I suppose I should go & get some sleep.
Nighty-night.

Hi, I'm back!!!

Workout complete: 145 various crunches,
10 mins step ups, went for a walk, 30 mins aerobics,
6 min butt blaster, wall pushups, hip extensions, 30 squats,

Need a quick shower now - and the sun's hiding behind a cloud! Mind you that wind is a bit nippy!

It's me AGAIN
It's sooo nice outside I can't stay indoors, just been for another walk up a hill of 20% incline, took 20 min to go up and down. emoticon emoticon

Although my hair has got back in control of itself, the style is still very much the same!!!

We may be a small 'active' team but at least those that ARE active are the ones who are motivated to succeed! I know I am and I can't stay off SP!!

Jude - You are getting this team going, we must all remember that although others may motivate its up to the individual to make the changes, hopefully with summer looming around the corner, some of the others will pop back too.

Right, well I'm just going to do my hour's workout and then I can be in the garden without feeling guilty!!

Be back later. emoticon

Hi there Ophelia105, good to have you here in the UK Midlands Team. Wow yes you have come such a long way. I keep telling myself the same thing. 'No way can I go back now'.
I am trying my hardest to get this team going again. Out of 119 members we seem to have only 5 or 6 who regularly appear. Still the team WILL get bigger & better even if 'we' personally are getting smaller & fitter.
Definitely brilliant weather at the moment, pity I have all the ironing from my weekend of 'doing nothing' to finish. Oh well!!!
Hey Slimjim why not post a picture of your new hairstyle?
Much love

Hi, I'm from the glorious county of Derbyshire - orginally from Lincolnshire but also lived in West Yorks,South Yorks and Notts so used to it round here in the Midlands/North.

I have done extremely well - thnx v much - I have to keep reminding myself as it easy to get complacent. I spent all of February and the first two weeks of March in a soul destroying plateau and ready to give up.

But then I remembered my options - keep going and trust the process or go back to where I was a year ago (which isn't feasible as I sold all my 18/20 clothes on eBay and replaced them with smaller sizes..)

Seems fairly quiet round here - does there get to be much chat? How long have people been with SparkPeople?

I joined after Christmas as I needed to regain some ground after putting on 8 pounds.

As far as the sunshine goes - it is marvellous - makes walking the pooch more pleasureable (top tip - I wear ankle weights when walking to add a little extra resistance..). I recently bought a convertible car so I get to enjoy the sun on the way home from work..which is nice

Hi and welcome,
Wow you've done amazingly well. Where are you from?
I'm in Shropshire myself.

I don't eat the Greggs but they are REALLY popular, aren't they.

Hope you are lapping up the sunshine, we've got it all week apparently, Bril !

Hello all

I have been using the UK team message board and thought I would transfer to this one to be a bit more local..

A couple of things I have found useful - Eat Less by Gillian Murphy - changed the way I think about food - recommend to anyone

www.foodfocus.co.uk for a uk based food tracker

And I have calories/nutrient content for some Greggs products..

Since this time last year I have lost three stone and gone from a 18/20 to a smallish 14 (for some things) Today I got into a size 14 pair of Next jeans...

And I am still at least a stone and half over weight so will be about for a bit yet...

Hi Brandi, I've been pinching friends' plants and putting them in my garden! Having a lovely rest and just had my hair trimmed - a little more sophisticated and a lot less wild!!!

Just had lunch and now going back in the garden to watch the washing dry - it's all go!!!

The thing to do is not to beat yourself up if you stray a little. Just take another deep breath and learn from your mistakes. Mind you I always know exactly where I've gone wrong, usually before I actually go wrong. Still as we keep saying, we are all in this together, and it aint going to happen overnight. Remember to use your Nutrition Tracker, I find it invaluable.
Much love

RAYFAN Welcome to the club! Boy I think everybody gets this one!!!

Have you tried re-affirming your vows? ie why did you start this lifestyle journey in the first place? find that enthusiasm you started with, if the goals have changed, have fun with your SP Page
and edit it up to date!

Do you belong to a Team that really pushes you and makes you accountable to them, how dedicated are you to that Team?

But most of all, remember that this is a loooong journey and not a quick diet. Even if weight loss is a bit slow, don't forget those inches lost too!!

Let us know how you get on or if you need to have a moan, come right back!!

No quitting, No Excuses.

I've gone off track at the moment and I'm trying to climb back on. How do you all get back on track when you've lost your way? Any advice?

It's never too late - never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.

Being defeated is often only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Joy comes from the inside out, not the outside in.

Today IS going to be a good day!

Happiness is not a station that you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.

' If you doing what you've always done, you will keep getting what you've always got'.

This topic has been suggested so that you can just chit-chat about anything you like (as long as it's clean, legal and within the Spark guidelines). I will leave it up to you. So get chatting.
Much love
