TUESDAY: Today is Target Tuesday. Let's target the hunger side of weight loss. We have talked about it before, but each time you are hungry, don't just give in to it right away. Give yourself some time (at least 15-20 minutes) to see if it is real hunger or just a response to something like stress, boredom, etc. Work on this aspect of your weight loss this week. You will be surprised just how many times you DON'T eat when you wait it out.

Morning ladies. I can't post much as I have so much to try and get done to get the house back to normal. Here is a pic of the four of us at Harry Caray's on Sunday. I have to say I looked pretty good that night and it was fun being taller!

Check in later.

Yeaaaaaa........WELCOME BACK FAYE!!!! We missed you around here, but I'm sooo glad you had such a fabulous time.....YOU DESERVED IT!!!

I'm curious, since you haven't updated your stats lately, did you make your birthday goal? If not, you must be darned close! Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU

So here goes my last points posting--
I got 4 for yesterday, FINALLY... for me.
Lisa gets a
Dorothy gets a and a for the day before (I think....my brain is kinda fuzzy)
Amanda gets a

CONGRATS GIRLS.....I can't believe how incredibly important those little smilies are for making you get all your points! Faye, thank you so much for doing this little thing for us every day!!!

My body aches all over, and I feel like I did something funky to my hip......last night's class was difficult to teach. One of my students suggested it might be a vitamin/mineral deficiency since I haven't taken my vitamins in about a week. I think she may be right. THere's no other explanation that I can think of!

Well, The kids are yelling at me to get in the car........so, I'll check back later,

Julie

Morning again,
Ok, I got on the scale this morning......didn't weigh in on Friday cuz of TOM, but couldn't wait until next Fri......

I've lost another 4 pounds this week!!! I broke the 230 mark and am now somewhere around 228/229 (it's hard to read our scale). Now, while I'm thrilled at the loss, I'm also a bit confused. I really am only trying to lose 2 pounds per week. Am I setting myself up for a massive stall later on? Am I losing too fast? Or should I just not look a gift horse in the mouth?? I guess there's just no pleasing some people, huh?

Glad you're feeling better SandyB.

I've discovered the joys of spaghetti squash!!!

Later,
Julie

Welcome back Faye! We missed you - although Julie did a fantastic job filling in for you.

Happy Birthday Faye - 50 years young!!

Glad you had a great trip!

I got 4 points yesterday - I'm trying to get to the gym every other day so I'll get in 4 sessions this week.

Congratulations Julie on your 4lb loss! - I wouldn't worry about it - make the most of it! Perhaps you were due a big loss after some slow weeks? or maybe it was just after your period and you've lost alot of water retention?. Anyway - well done!

Take care girls!

Love Amanda xx

OUR HAPPY LITTLE GROUP IS CHUGGING RIGHT ALONG: OUR 4 POINTERS SO FAR TODAY ARE:

PAM
AMANDA
SANDYB
JULIE

Someone ask me about my birthday challenge and no I missed it, but that is ok. I am going to really start kicking butt!

Julie: Don't freak about rapid weight loss if you are staying on your program. Sometimes it does come off fast.

Thank you to everyone for the beautiful birthday wishes. It was one of the best birthdays I have ever had. Chicago is a truly magnificent and beautiful city. If you ever get a chance you should visit.

Well girlies, I am hearing the laundry continually calling.
Later!

Faye
