Ladies, I am migrating over to My Fitness Pal. I am going to send you two a Spark email (probably tomorrow) with my email address and username so you can join if you want. I will set up a Walking Around the World group too. MFP has groups/teams, various trackers, and goal setting, so it's similar to Spark. I will also post a message on this team with the new info.

NEW QUESTION:

Which do you feel is more important; a healthy diet or getting in more daily exercise?

Me: I think you can't do one without the other!

My facebook is Diana Marie Parsons. www.facebook.com/duckturnip

This is totally off topic. But I have been listening to these audio books ( thanks for the audio book tip WIzardowl) And doing these taps. I got the app free during the height of the pandemic because I am a health care worker. I find the taps to be beneficial . I am listening to Jessica book on diet now. Some things really resonate for me .This link came in my email this morning and I thought I would share it here www.thetappingsolution.com/w

Never tried the cabbage soup, I think drinking slim fast 2 meals then eating, it was hard not to over eat.

Thankfully I do not get sick often and the food would probably depend on the ailment .
Definitely homemade chicken soup or possibly cottage cheese and canned peaches .sometimes cinnamon toast

@wizardowl you got this . I was in my 40's when I met my husband now. He has been the best one so far .

I guess that would be a bit concerning.I have several girlfriends that never married or had children. One is a hoot she is always looking for Mr right. The other was just happy to have her dog. You seem open and amazing. I am sure you are gonna meet someone. I met my current husband quite by accident. I was single had 3 older kids. You just never know.

I know I am enough, but I have no family except my Dad who is 86. Once he is gone I will be all alone and that scares me. I don't want to be alone. I can't have kids so that's out. It would just be nice to have someone to go through life with.

@WIZARDHOWL - I agree with Sivlerwitch59., we all have bad days, bad weeks, even bad months, just don't give up.

QOD - diet wise most days do ok, but I have my off days. My hubby is also wanting to eat healthy and he does the cooking except I make my own breakfast (I get up later then him).
I agree having support always helps, hubby has always been very supported of me whatever I was trying to do, I am very blessed.

I don't think it's an inner ear thing... I just think I have crappy balance and always have. But good idea. Next time I go to the doctor I will talk to her about it and see if my insurance co can help me in any way.

NEW QUESTION:

Do you ever feel like what you do to try to be healthier is never enough?

Me: Right now I feel like that. I had a really rough week and gained a lot of weight and I am trying to get back to normal now.

I didn't have to clean my plate, just eat enough to be full, but my Mom was pretty good about putting just enough food for me on my plate. Leftovers were given to the animals (like meat) or were saved for lunches the next day. Thank God I was never spanked over food or I might be really screwed up!

NEW QUESTION:

Do you have a problem with balance at any time during the day?

Me: My balance is really poor. I tend to fall or trip very easily and have to always watch where I'm walking. I'm not really sure what to do about it to improve it though I know I need to work on it.

Yes, liver and eggs, I had acute anemia when a child, in fact at first they thought it was leukemia. I was sick for 6 months, had to eat liver 2-3 times a day. My grandma knew the butcher and after he closed the shop he would grind the liver so it looked like hamburger.
It still tasted like liver. The other thing was eggs, I only liked them scrambled and I didn't want to see any white I know I am weird . LOL.

I am not a fan of eggs either . I love chickens and have had them for years. The only drawback is eggs SIGH . And they are so good for you . I also will eat them hidden in a burrito or covered in salad dressing on a chef salad in quiche .I have zero idea how people happily eat them every day LOL

Like you I had to eat what was served . AND CLEAN MY PLATE no excuses . Children were starving in the world . I should be grateful I have a meal etc etc My poor brother would be so tired he would fall asleep . Mom would wake him up and give him 5 minutes on the timer to eat or she would spank him over and over . Meal times were not always pleasant at my house growing up. I once asked for an envelope to mail my unwanted food to the other children.. You guessed it I got spanked for being ungrateful and fresh . As a result I learned to woof my food and get through dinner fast. I also learned to eat according to the clock because meal times were 7,12and 5 with the exception of Sunday and holidays we ate dinner at 1 then.. Its interesting the baggage we pick up .Also we always had desert. The result of that . I feel like my meal isn't over till I have a goodie

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

NEW QUESTION:

Growing up were you forced to eat food you didn't like?

Me: My mom made it clear she wasn't a short-order cook and the only food to eat was what was served. At the same time, if I really didn't like something after trying it, I didn't have to eat it, there just wasn't going to be anything else to replace it either. I am not picky at all because of this. The only thing that my mom "coaxed" me into eating as a child was eggs which I have always hated. When I was about 10, I turned to her one day over scrambled eggs and said something to the effect of, "Can I just not eat eggs anymore? I'll eat everything else." And she agreed that was okay and never made me eggs again. As an adult I have found a couple of styles of eggs that I like but they are just not one of my favorite foods.

Yes I have. We did it has a family once, then mom, my sister and I, and then I had boudoir
pictures taken. I think in the late 80's or early 90's it was a thing to have these taken, I had them taken for Don. They were of course good taste.

It would be very helpful .Also agree it would be impractical for a lot of places to do it because they don't have cookie cutter food.
