What we need around here is the opportunity to POST MORE! :comp: This thread idea is actually stolen, er, inspired by numerous forums all across that great faceless entity we call the web.

I think it'd be great if we had a question-and-answer survey! This will serve the purpose of revealing MORE about the people we are posting to each day AND will provide entertainment and a MORE chances to sit at a computer and type instead of eating.

So, if you WANT TO, please cut and paste the following into a post with your answers.

I won't respond to any of the answers, just avidly read!

If anyone finds this exercise trite, silly, dull, meaningless or too much trouble, well, that's ok!!! :spin:

Amarantha, you come up with really great threads. I enjoy reading the responses, so here's mine:

1) I'm just trying to cut out the sweets and extra
fats right now...I'm also a WW lifetime member who is about 9 lbs. over goal right now...I may
go back and try the flexpoints, too.

2) It's working pretty good if I keep away from the number 4 answer!

3) My favorite movie which has been my favorite
since the age of 7 is The Wizard of Oz. Never
do I pass up the chance to see it (of course,
I'm sure you've guessed by my name I'm a big
music and musical lover!

4) This is a real tough one...ice cream, boston
cream donuts, pizza, pumpkin pie, ice cream cake from DQ with those crunchy things. Sorry, can't pick just one!

5) The book that I can never get out of my mind
and has to be my favorite is She's Come Undone
by Wally Lamb. Lots of song references and is
about an overweight troubled girl in the 1960's and 70's.

6) Favorite season is probably early Fall.

7) If I won a zillion bucks I'd pay off my bills and save and invest and send the kids to
college when the time comes.

8) My hobbies are reading, music, walking, cycling, going to the gym and of course being
on line at 3FC.

9) Right now I'm a stay at home mom.

10)Like most of you, I don't know my aura color
because I can't see it! Periwinkle's a nice
color for an aura, I think!

This looks fun so I thougt I would jump in and add myself here!

Question #1: What weight management plan, if any, do you follow?
I've just started, but I plan on combining WW with the old Nutrition program I was on before.

Question #2: How's that working for you?
In the past it worked fabulously, I had lost 25lbs. And felt great. I've gained 10 of it back and I'm trying to lose those 10 plus 10 more.

Question #3: What's your favorite movie?
I love suspense. Sixth Sense was a good one.

Question #4: What's your favorite fattening food?
What isn't fattening anymore? Salty foods and sweets are bad with me. So DQ's peanut buster parfaits are out of the question!!

Question #5: What's your favorite book?
Enjoy reading Harry Potter with my daughter, but I've been known to read a raunchy romance novel from time to time. My way of fantasizing that I'm that beautiful thin woman in the book!!

Question #6: What's your favorite season of the year?
Fall. I love the warm sun and the cool breeze on my skin. The falling leaves are beautiful and I got together with my sweetie in the fall.

Question #7: What would you do if you won a zillion dollars in the lottery?
Cry!!

Question #8: What are your hobbies?
I'm not sure anymore, I don't feel like I get time for myself much. But I do enjoy spending time with my family.

Question #9: What is your occupation?
The company I worked for closed it's doors in April, so I'm unemployed for the time, but I plan on attending school this fall to update my skills.


Question #10: What color is your aura?
I'm not sure, I love the color red, in different shades... and orange. It's a fall thing.

OK, Amarantha, I'll chime in. (By the way I've avidly followed your threads for a long time, even though I don't often post.)

What weight management plan do I follow? WW 123 Success. I'm keeping a watchful eye on the successes of those following the new FlexPoints plan, I may give it a try. Being resistant to change, I'm nervous about changing what works for me, ya know the old "dance with the one that brought you" philosophy.

How's it working? Great. I've lost 20 lbs since June 7th, when I really got serious about it. Initially I lost 75 lbs 2 years ago on the 123 plan, when we changed to Winning Points I tried it and in retrospect it seemed that was the beginning of my backslide and weight gain.

Favorite movie? Hmm, it changes often. I guess all-time-since-I-was-a-kid favorite, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Is there any better looking cowboy than Robert Redford? Or cooler? I won't watch the ending though.

Favorite fattening food? This is embarrassing but okay, here goes: Pecan praline ice cream with caramel and marshmallow sauce. Just typing that made me gain 5 lbs!

Favorite book? Again, it changes according to my mood. I agree with some listed here, love She's Come Undone also. All time read it again and again and again and never tire of it--Stephen Kings the Dark Tower series, any of them.

Favorite season? Spring

If I won the lottery I'd take care of my mother who is widowed and lives on social security and in very poor health. Also, DS has a liver disease, so I'd make sure a huge chunk was set aside for his future medical needs. Aside from that my life wouldn't change all that much. I think I'd still work, I love my home here, maybe travel some.

Hobbies? Reading, movies. I used to love to bake and decorate elaborate cakes, but alas that got me where I am today, namely WW for life! It's hard around the holidays when I want to bake bake bake but don't dare because I know I'd then eat eat eat!!

Occupation? Elementary school librarian.

Aura? I can't see it. I've tried, I can't.

Thankee kindly Storylady for thy responses!!! :) Nope, no better looking cowpoke than Redford, except I don't remember the ending, so if he died, I don't wanna know! It's kind of like the way I rewrote the ending to "Gone With the Wind" when I was 12 ... in mine, Rhett turns around at the garden gate and comes right back in and they live happily ever ...

Hmmm, I digress, bumping!!! :)
