    @PackerFanInGB - i follow Mike Rowe’s mother on FB. She is hilarious. Her post today made me think of you.

    OMG! THIS IS TOTALLY US! hahahaha! I'm going to have to start following her! I didn't know she was on FB. I saw him read a letter from her on TV once and it was so funny, I had tears in my eyes laughing!

    Her FB page is called About My Mother it’s incredible.

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    Today: 195.8

    Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
    2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. PB usernames 6 digits, no 19 or 20s, no birthdates. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri.
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week -Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals. NOTE: ATTENDED PRE FLEX DAY.
    6. Medical: Dentist Apr 30 8 AM but check on meetings and RS. Onco Apr ???. PCP Schedule for July. ObG schedule for October. PCP - allergy shots?
    7. Theater: Christie auditions 20-21 7 PM. Usher 24 6 PM.
    8. House: Crawl space repairs. After that - siding? Or perhaps bathroom floor.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy new bikes and bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
    11. Family: Find cousin photos.

    WFTY: Progress. So, the audition last night went well. I didn't land the part yet, but I did get called back! Callbacks are tomorrow night. So now there's waiting. Blehhhh.

    School feels... off-kilter. I'm making significant changes this semester and it's going well but it isn't as smooth as I'd like it to be.

    @kingscrown Good for you for coming here and stopping the gain before it gets worse!

    I had a similar story—lost 70-80 pounds (didn’t measure much at the highest) back in 2007 and kept off 50 for many years. But the weight slowly kept adding on especially in the past 6 years and now I have 40 pounds to “re-lose”. This time am using the philosophy from the HalfSize Me podcast of focusing on maintenance...I know how to lose, but clearly I need to work on the daily habits I will knees to maintain the loss for good.

    Good luck in your journey, this is a great group!

    @pridesabtch - just read your post about your daughter’s opening night. Horrible to have a clash like that and my heart goes out to you. Sometimes it feels like the moment you become a parent you sign up to a lifetime of guilt and worry (along with all the good stuff of course!)

    So have a cyber hug 🤗 and know that this stranger across the pond thinks you are doing a brilliant job x
