    Has the sign up for September been posted. I didn't read all through the August posts. I'm kind of behind on my reading.
    I want to be in again for September. Hopefully, I'll get motivated by something soon!

    Where in the world did August go? I guess I ate my way through it. I gained 4 lbs. Haven't done that in a while. Time to get back on track.
    BJ, I hope you are healing nicely. I can't believe how many in this group have had recent surgeries. That's one club I don't want to be a member of!

    These are interesting. Worth a try.

    5 WAYS TO LOSE WEIGHT WHILE YOU SLEEP

    5. 1. Blast the AC:

    A striking new study published in the journal Diabetes suggests that simply blasting the air conditioner may subtly transform a person’s stores of brown fat — “good” fat, stimulated by cold temperatures, that serves to keep us warm by burning through “bad” fat stores. Participants spent a few weeks sleeping in bedrooms with varying temperatures: a neutral 75 degrees, a cool 66 degrees, and a balmy 81 degrees. After four weeks of sleeping at 66 degrees, the men had almost doubled their volumes of brown fat. Cool!

    4. 2. Light a minty candle:

    Certain scents can make your mouth water, and others can actually suppress your appetite. One study published in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine found that people who sniffed peppermint every two hours lost an average of 5 pounds a month! Banana, green apple, and vanilla had similar effects. Consider adding a few drops of peppermint oil to your pillow or burning a minty candle to fill the room with slimming smells.


    3. 3. Throw out the night light:

    Exposure to light at night doesn’t just interrupt your chances of a great night’s sleep, it may also result in weight gain, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Study subjects who slept in the darkest rooms were 21 percent less likely to be obese than those sleeping in the lightest rooms. Not only that, the more light in the bedroom, the heavier the person who slept there. The researchers note the study could not provide evidence that light was causing the difference in obesity risk and described their results as “intriguing.”


    2. 4. Avoid yellow walls:

    A fresh lick of cool-hued paint could help your weight loss goals, especially if your bedroom is yellow. A spatial color experiment published in the interior design magazine Contract (not peer reviewed) presented partygoers with three identical venues painted different colors: red, yellow and blue. Though popular belief suggests red is the most appetite stimulating hue, the yellow room proved equally inviting to participants — and twice as popular as the blue room. And while people reported feeling hungriest when seeing red, they actually ate twice as much in the yellow room!


    1. 5. Hide the iPad:

    Research suggests that the more electronics we bring into the bedroom, the fatter we get -- especially among children. A study in the Pediatric Obesity journal found that kids who bask in the nighttime glow of a TV or computer don't get enough rest and suffer from poor lifestyle habits. Researchers found that students with access to one electronic device were 1.47 times as likely to be overweight as kids with no devices in the bedroom. That increased to 2.57 times for kids with three devices. Leave your iPad in the living room and limit bedroom activity to sleep (and sex, if you're into that).

    Interesting Pam. I should have tons of brown fat as we turn the thermostat down to 58 or 60 at night in the winter.

    This is what I made with the beautiful floral fabrics I won in June weight loss challenge. Do you think I should frame it with the white or yellow like the corner stones?
