Mike - a 3# loss is a 3# loss. I don't care why my scale goes down.

Robin - so glad your back is feeling better.

I know what you mean. You just have to take it one day at a time. At the beginning, every day seemed so hard. But it did get easier. I try to focus more on making my goals rather than the weight loss itself. So if I make my goals for the day, I can feel successful and give myself a pat on the back. Very glad you joined in here!

The instructor seems great! She breaks the dance down into very simple movements and shows them and explains them well. It looks like fun!

The reason I mention it is that I thought it might be fun to learn with friends. Wouldn't it be a hoot if, one day, we were all in the same place at the same time and we could do it together! Hey, it could happen!
LOL. I'll check that out. Maybe we could do a flash mob dance somewhere!

Goals for the week:

2. Avg 45 min exercise a day: 45, 60, 10
3. Small bites, slower eating: sometimes
4. No sugar, white flour: Y, Y, N (hamburger bun)

Hehe that's ok, I get it. Running is not my thing -- between the knees (they are perfectly happy dancing but not running, for some odd reason), the whole concept of getting sweaty (ick) and having to deal with *ahem* the girls (they will. not. be. tamed), running is out of the question for me .

Welcome aboard, Laura! Interesting thing about the Get-Healthy bus -- no matter how many times you jump off, there's always room when you want to jump back on!

Wow you guys are chatty cathys today. It took we a while to get caught up. It's been a hectic day. I haven't had a chance to breath let along exercise and I haven't eaten much either. Tomorrow my life will be back to normal.
It's day 4 and I am still going strong. Whoo Hoo.
