    I think I now have the motivation I need to really get serious about losing weight. My twin sister is following one of those protein shake diet plans and losing quite a bit of weight. Well, I can't let her be thinner than me, can I? I wish I could live with my younger sister for a few months. We really motivate each other to eat right and exercise (when we are together). I think I will see if there is a TOPS group in my area. I need something to go to every week to keep me on track and I do think that paying out money helps me. I guess I need to invest a little money in order to reap the reward. Let's do this, ladies!

    See I knew what I was thinking when I chose to do the Batiks again in December......we all need some kind of motivation to stay away from some of those goodies.

    Batiks will be done each quarter next year, since it is so popular. Would love to hear some of your ideas of what we should do in the coming year.

    I'm in again. Hopefully I can at least lose the weight I gained from all the stress.
    I will try to get my FQ's off here in the next couple of days.

    I will send my Fq this weekend I hope. The student who is making all of us insane at school is suspended until next week. He isn't allowed to return to school until Tuesday. Not sure yet what the plan is for when he returns. Our classroom is a totally different environment yesterday and today. With only 22 days of school completed our class is 3 days behind the other second grade classes on academics. He was removed from the classroom 3 times yesterday 3 times before 10 AM.
    I need to get back to weight watchers. I am going Saturday morning. Life has been a little bit crazy here for several months and I got away from it. I know it is a program that works for me. Knowing that I can make anything I want fit into my program works for my brain.
    Prayers going out to all who are needing them. Healthy eating to all.

    Meanmom, I remember those kind of days oh so well. Before I had to retire early teaching special ed. I had this one student who was just spoiled. He learned what he could get away with. The principal let him too just to avoid his parents threatening to send him somewhere else. I would try to get class started with my students, and he would grin and say he needed to use the bathroom. I would let him go then as soon as he got back he would say he needed to go again, and would repeat this maybe 10 times. He didn't have a health issue going on. I finally got so upset, and called the principal to come and get him so I could have class. She would throw it all back on me. This student had caused every teacher he ever had problems that would cause their class to stop. I had other kids who functioned low, but they would try their best. This student did not function low, but caused a lot of trouble. Such is life. lol...

    Not sure how it has happened but I am ready for work early this morning. I have 15 minutes to play on the computer. I am in a regular classroom this year. The student that is making us crazy is not special ed. We are pretty sure he is oppositional defiant and somewhere on the autism spectrum. Not properly diagnosed. He is listed as just low academically. I think what makes us so crazy is that you will ask him not to do something and he will look at you and grin and then do it. He knows what he is doing is wrong. He was sent home a week ago and spent the day playing video games and playing outside.
    I jumped on the elliptical last night for 30 minutes. WOW it is amazing how quickly you loose your endurance when you skip exercise for a few weeks. I'm not sore but man was I winded exercising. I really need to make myself go to spinning class. It is either at 6 AM or 6:30 PM. NOt sure I can make it to work with the morning class. Once I get home at night I have a hard time making myself leave for the gym. I have been trying to get my DH to go with me. He is working on weight loss too. (finally) It is so annoying how easily men loose weight. He is barely trying and has dropped 18 pounds.

    I'm not sure what it is to have a hubby needing to lose weight. Mine eats everything - and I do mean everything and never gains any weight. We figured when he hit 40 perhaps the metabolism would slow down and that would change - then we upped the age to 60 and again to 70. So far, nothing. I hate having to watch everything I eat and he eats everything he wants - and more!
