Ya hear that SB? Get a moveon! You can do it.

I thought I was the only toothless one until I discovered I have four wisdom teeth coming in. Seventy-four and I am still cutting teeth.

I hope to be able to! It gets frustrating at times. I have been in the gym or pool everyday this week & only 1 lb. down. I decided to take today (Friday) off. I do feel better but that scale isn't moving very fast.

SB, you seem to be on sort of a plateau. They have found that when this happens, if you change your diet around, stop some foods, add new ones, you can get back to losing more, faster. It might be worth looking into.

O.k I will try it...Thanks for the tip Addie! May try some more intense interval training at the gym too.

How am I supposed to be on the diet if my MIL keeps sending us presents like this?

Hm, it is kind of hard to see but it is a huge plater of assorted chocolates with a chocolate horn in the middle full of candy. A second one in as many as two weeks. I have no will power, dieting has been postponed.

It's not just you who needs diet education, but all those well-meaning people around you need help, too. Gentle teaching of what you can eat and stick to your diet. Remind them, in the long run, you get to spend more time with them.

Charlie, when I get something like that, I bring it to the teacher's lounge, and it's gone in a few hours. Do you have a lounge at work where you can get rid of it?

Of course I could do that, but, and do not take this in the wrong way, but it is a couple hundred dollars gift basket. I just do not think it would be appropriate to give something like this away.

Is this a traditional holiday gift for you, Charlie? Small bites, if so...make it last as long as you can. Make it a challenge!
