    I realize this has nothing to do with teaching, but......

    I just joined a COOL FREE weight loss thing on the internet (sparkpeople.com) and wanted to know if any of you COOL people were on it too.

    If you are, or want to join- I'd LOVE some help ( I need it!)

    So my ID on there is christa1234. Sign me up as a friend if you get on ok? I'd love to have a teacher group.

    Not "trying" as much as "hoping for a miracle in the middle of the night sometime!!"

    But no, thanks anyway.

    yes

    I will check that out..... I am trying to lose about 18 pounds......

    7 from a rough breakup late last spring, 4 from being lazy this summer, and 7 I never wanted in the first place!

    BUT, I do have faith in dropping a few just due to how physical our jobs are.... I'm CONSTANTLY moving or talking for about 9 hours.

    And then, I'm too worn out to stay up late and eat.... so school starting is very good for my body!!

    Good luck!

    I'll check out that website. I lost about 35 pounds 2 years ago on weight watchers, but most of it has slowly crept back on (dang stress eating!). I don't want to pay to go back to weight watchers, especially since I already know how to do the program. I'd be happy if I could just lose 15-20...I think I could manage that. I was doing pretty good until the funnel cake at the fair tonight found its way into my mouth! :)

    I lost 10 pounds last school year. I just had to make up in my mind that food is to sustain life not make my life. Over the summer i have dropped four pounds. When the weather is not too hot I plan to add walking to the routine.
