Happy September :)  School is back in, life is settling down :)  Vacation time is all wrapped up :(
One of my favorite "cheers" from this week's meeting is the following: ".2, .4, .6,.8….why don't we appreciate?"  A perfect cheer for those looking for perfection!  How quickly our minds focus on the negative as it relates to our weight loss.  Why must it be so difficult to recognize and speak/think about the positive?  BECAUSE it is a challenge for many….THIS MEETING IS VITAL!!  It is THE MEETING where we will actually TAKE THE TIME needed to focus on the positive- to recognize the SUCCESS we've experienced on our journey so far.  GET INTO A MEETING…'s time to think POSITIVELY!!
I can's wait to see y'all!!!

"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if
you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got
to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death,
and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and
colorfully, or you're not alive."

-- Mel Brooks

It just started ALL wrong!

I couldn't sleep so I got up at 5am and ran in the dark.  When I got home my 7 year old wanted to open his birthday present from his grandparents.  It had a baggie of Snickers in the package!  I ate them as he is allergic to peanuts and it was 6am and I was alone with a baggie of Snickers.  What else could I do???  It turns out that there are other people who live in my house that would have helped me eat them, but they were asleep... They also included a box of Hot Tamales that no one wanted so I ate those for my mid morning snack.  I had some chicken for lunch and a salad for my afternoon snack.  Then we headed to the Pizza Pie Cafe for the birthday dinner.  I started with a salad.  I really don't remember much after that.  I had about 8 diet Pepsi's and too much pizza.  I had 3 small pieces and then about 3 pieces of dessert pizza.  My poor birthday boy actually ate so much that he THREW UP on the way home.  THANK HEAVENS he and my 9 year old rode home with my husband ;D  My 9 year old threw up too after he saw the 7 year old toss his cookies!  Am I evil for being SO happy they were not in my car???
Anyway, I am off to watch some TV and go to sleep!
Happy Thursday!

Riddle...What happens when you put 5 Fun Size Snickers in front of Marion at 6am?

But whatever shall I do?  They were in a birthday box for my son who is allergic to peanuts.  I HAD to eat them to save him ;)  Now I just can't kiss him for a few hours.  Good thing he's 7 and can live with out a kiss from mom for several hours :D
And in case you did not see this, you MUST watch this video on YouTube.  Eat Less, Move More!

Celery Saves the Day!

Well, can I just say that celery is the best invention ever!  I was STARVED after dinner and just started downing my pre-cut celery and you know, I am fine.  Oh and by the way, adding a titch of almond extract to my vanilla smoothie was GENIUS!  Man, was that tasty!
