    I think MFP is mess up this morning or is it me. very well be yes a mess of white stuff out there connie.It is 28 degree now and should get up to 34 soon. and start melting tis stuff. The cars are having a rough go of it again this morning. and the big trucks I don't ever remember going thru a Februarys like this one.before.. it is warmer in my computer and sewing room than in our southroom where the family room is. it could be I keep the door shut and all the warm air stays in here

    I had a hot bowl of oatmeals tis morning..with 1 T of flax meal and 2 slices of bacon.

    Hey All,

    You are such an inspiration with your 20 pounds by Easter challenge. I have never done one of these, but do you mind if I join you all as you are starting the next one? My husband is having his graduation party at the end of May, and I'd love to be rocking a much smaller size by then. I travel for work, so I do eat out - usually healthfully, but exercising on the road (usually working on demos and presentations in my hotel room) tends to be hard to fit in.

    I am hoping that joining a group, I will keep focused when work gets crazy.

    Thanks everyone!

    I haven't had a chance to read all the updates yet, but things are going well so far on this busy day.
    At school orientation they had drinks and snacks for us, and guess what they had? Boxes and boxes of chocolate glazed donuts(the best kind of donuts), a variety of sodas, mini bags of Doritos and potato chips, and did I mention the platter of Easter candy? Yes, that's right. And you know what I find most appealing about Easter candy? All the pretty pastel colored wrappers. I think that's really why the candy is hard to pass up, as if it's going to taste better than normal because of the pretty little wrappers. They also had coffee and water, so I chose coffee with two creamers. And there was 1 Nutrigrain bar left, and mini bags of Goldfish. So I grabbed the Nutrigrain bar and a Goldfish baggy for later. I took one small nibble off the top of my husband's donut, to satisfy my "curiosity".
    I also ended up with some free time after orientation, so I was just able to spend an hour in the gym. I'm pretty happy about that because I know I'll let myself have a small piece of cake at the bday party tonight. Now off to run some errands before the shower and party begin!

    Happy Saturday everyone!

    Welcome, Muffy and Tryin2behealthy! We all joined at different stages, and so not everyone will have time to get the 20 off before Easter, but the good news is (A) any pounds you lose will make you a winner, and (B) we are starting a new challenge immediately after, for the 4th of July! I think someone mentioned calling it Fit for the Fourth, which sounds great!

    Tryin2, will you tell us your name in your next post, please? It is so nice to be able to put a name to the face!

    Diane, Happy Birthday tomorrow - I love weekend birthdays :smiley:

    Ray, OMG chocolate donuts...I don't know if I could have been strong enough to hold out >:) !! Good for you, getting to the gym in between!

    Going to go watch the 2nd period of the Red Wings game!

    Sorry graybon. Barbiecat was keeping up with our birthday list and she found she did not have time to do so anymore But she got us off to a nice start. but if someone want to take over it . They are welcome to it. I don't think I can do it without messing it all up.

    Wow! What a nice group of people! I'm excited to see what happens this month.

    Today I went running around a park near my house. The sun was so bright and big today, hard to believe it's still February! I enjoyed watching the children's soccer game as I ran around the track that surrounds the perimeter of the park. Seeing so many people enjoying the fine weather makes me so happy.

    Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!
