Holly beach is so good.
They will run out of it soon as it is a seasonal beer.
It is made at parish brewing company in brousard where we play trivia on thursday nights. We have not been doing well lately.
anyway,
the house is cooling down it was at 76 degrees, I had turned down the air and turned it back up this evening.it should be 72 degrees once we go to bed.
Amazing what one night of no air conditioning still had a fan on us so it was ok.
I can't imagine people who don't have air conditioning due to power out-ashes.
and how our ancestors made it with out electricity and how they cooled off.
although I think the upper temps have more to do with global warming.
yikes!
any way it is hotter than records and can't help but think that we are contributing to global warming.

emoticon and emoticon Bizi! I will miss you too. Jami is a beautiful soul!

Cherie- I am sooooo happy and proud at how far you have come. Even though Sparks is ending here I know you are on solid ground!!! As for why- it has something to do with the running costs.
There is an article if you go to start page. Also- ther is a new platform but it is very ...well cold- I think the community here does not pay the bills as much as some other things a site can have. Actually I don't know the nitty gritty about it but since you have facebook you have a connection there that I hope continues to support you. You are doing great.

well- eldest kid and a friend are coming by- so I am gonna clean and cook and do some yard stuff. Right now weather is perfect! Hope it stays that way..oh! and this kid does not like drinking so we are sticking to lemonade and ginger beer- which is AF!!!

Have a great one all!

~Em~

Thx Bizi! Life is easier without being a slave to drinking! I wish the best for you!

I wonder why this is closing down?

I was on a medication, with a side affect of weight gain. Doc said I can stop taking it. I,ve cleaned up my eating, am walking, I did this before, I can do this again!

Yes- Dry July is going well and with this heat I am happy not to dehydrate with any kinds of booze. Water is great and hibiscus tea has been awesome!

I am thinking I may leave this team when August 1 hits. I know Sparkpeople is ending on the 17th but it seems many are getting quiet or leaving before.

I am kinda active here but more so on a few other teams and so want to focus on that before the big good bye.

Wondered what you are all doing after?

I plan on sticking to a good routine. Eating healthy food 90% of the times with appropriate times for treats and yes drinks once in awhile.

My goal is still 123.4 for a BMI of 20.5 which is healthy. My BP is good. Health is good and will only get better! Have been sketching a bit...doing tons around the house and piano.

To be honest I am no spinning the wheel here or doing points etc. I am not into online challenges anymore.

Living a healthy life and keeping it real and keeping it simple is working for me.

I wish you all the best...ha! no quite goodbye yet but the days are flying!

Hi all!

It was a nice day, went out for a soft swirl ice cream cone today! Still battling depression, but I'm trying.

Today will be my 5th day in a rwo AF. Huge as 4th of July is now bittersweet as my Dad died on the 4th in 2018. I'm glad my day was AF as I remembered him.

I had a long sleep!
Our parade is today. My DH is headed down there but I am going to hike in a park away from the maddening crowd! emoticon

Hi all!

Hope july will be better for me. My system has been out of whack for a month and so has my metabolism!
Good support for those who are staying AF, Life is so much easier when you don't drink!

Have a great weekend!

Getting ready to take a trip to see my family in Indiana.
Am a bit anxious about this. For three days I will be

staying at my folks house in northern IN.
I asked mom what she wanted me to do to help with

the yard. She wants me to weed the area in front

of the bay window in the living room and the bricks

in the front of the house, it is actually the back of
the house. It is an old farm house. Mom has many
garden beds to tend to and she loves working in
the yard and cooking, she is a great cook.
My sisters live in the state and help out going up
monthly to help with chores. They are a big help.
I feel bad that I can't help out living 1000 miles a way.
I have extra klonipin to take if I need it.
We have 7 nights booked into a hotel. Everything

is so expensive, renting a car, air flight, hotels.
This will be the last time that we will fly because

of my e-credit from a canceled trip due to covid.
That is until we take a big trip overseas to
celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
anyway,I have not seen my folks in a year
because they canceled christmas last year,
due to covid fears. They are in their 80's so I get that.
It will be good to see my sisters and Brother-in-law too.
I will be traveling with jeff so that is good. I hate traveling alone.

Thanks for the support.

Well day 4 was a bust we went out of town to play trivia and I drank 2 beers, I drank 5 glasses of water mixed with the beer to make it last longer.pineapple beer so good.
Then I stopped by fat pats tonight after work and had less than 2 beers. and did work and then came home when it started raining. I was out side in the heat and avoided getting poured on by prepaying for my round ahead of time and just running to the car. I can live my normal life with only having 2 beers. Tomorrow I work seeing a couple of clients.
2 beer bizi

Survived the witching hours so today is my 3rd day not drinking.
The more days I get the easier it is.
I know my health will be better. Am really hoping
I can lose some of this weight....too too heavy.
And I refuse to buy new scrubs even when these are

so tight. I bought all new underwear a size bigger

than I have ever worn.
jockeys size 8.
heavy sigh.

Bizi- your liver is going to have to take 9 hours to process the 9 beers and maybe even more when you take meds. water in between helps. And being fully present for the first drink and then not having another also can be a good way to go.

Booze is not important. Not needed. It can be fun- but only one or two at most - maybe three for a guy. And not every day. Too much money. Too many calories etc.

Bizi- You only need one good friend and anymore is a bonus! We all spend most of our time with ourselves.

I agree- AF will help you lose. But- that is not easy to do. You can- as you said you did and you can again.

Lets all keep in touch while we can here.

I had a streak 5 1/2 months a couple of years ago.

then I drank9 beers.
Have had a 30 af days in a row, but this year was t
he first when I did not give up alcohol for lent.
I went in patient for 30 days due to mania and and psychosis.
and was af when released to IOP for 5 weeks.
I am lonely, have few friends, mostly quintessences.
I stop buy fat pats to socialize amongst the bartenders
and to get work done answer phone calls. I will try to stay away from fat pats and not buy any beer.
my weight is up to 193 this morning. need to get
back to AF to lose weight.

Cherie- I am here until the party over lol! It will be odd not checking in!

Bizi- hope you get a ton of AF days in to get a rest and to feel better!


Got some house cleaning- a friend is coming over for a walk. Got to run to store too to get lemonade.
My youngest is coming for a visit and to celebrate birthday! Going to be a few days at end of this week so going to cook up some food...might buy th ecake- not sure!
And in-laws flying in but that is because of med stuff so not sure what they are up for yet..

Going to be busy!

I'm doing great with AF days but I do well with having beer/wine/a drink now and then.
One thing Have learned from being here is I can be mod- or know I can drink. It is a choice. More often the better choice is NOT but for me allowing it means I make better choices. Hope that makes sense! emoticon

Have a terrific Tuesday all!!!

I drank so much yesterday.
My tdoc canceled on my 9am visit so I went back
to bed was hung over and needed to get some
more sleep and set the alarm wrong and jeff

came looking for me and found me in bed, told

me the time and I was horrified. jumped up and
ran a comb thru my hair and ran out the door,

no face washed no brushed my teeth
no no no taking care of my self.
So decided to not drink, did not stop at

fat pats like usual. came home and jeff

said the chicken thighs we could cook for
dinner but I felt that they were still partially

frozen. So we went to chipotle and had good food.
came home started on billing. and got 20 bills done.

That was enough. I only had a few days left to bill.

they can wait a while.
Day 1 of not drinking, after drinking for so many days. I finally have a day one.
geesh

Hi all!

Glad your in a AF place Em!

Didn't sleep all night again, Tried, have to go to the grocery today to buy soft dinners that I can eat.The meds are weaning out now, will have to watch so I don't get depressed.

I'm going to miss this site, it was personal. Hope to find another site like this one.

Take care everyone!

Bizi- lol!! not at all and not on this team!! I don't think of any of us here as know it alls!

What I actually mean are random people who I don't even know- maybe they are trolls sweeping in to give me advice. That is the part of online community I do not like!!

It is what is making me think twice about joining any forums/ diet sites/ or FB groups.
The private groups here on SP have been a great format for the most part.

I'm keeping somewhat of an open mind but realizing doing what I need to do and hgetting support offline may be best for me

Cheri- yes SParkpeople as we know it here will not be available.
Did you get to read thte article? There is a link- if you go to start page.

So- I have been in an AF place and liking it!
Have a great day all!

Hi all!

I slept better last nite. Not taking any antidepressant now, till we get the jitters under control.
I got out of the house yesterday and today, felt good....
What is Spark America? Is all of Spark People gonna be ended? ot will something take its place?
Does anyone do night eating? I do.

I've learned a lot in the years of Spark People, have you?

Need to hear from you!
