Hi, I'm Sally. I live in sunny southern California, LA to be exact. I am a first grade teacher and find so much JOY in my work and family. I have three grown lovely daughters, a pomeranian and a fat cat! I have been losing about two pounds a month since reading The Spark and finding sparkpeople. I love this site and all of the great resources. Slow but steady seems to be my M.O. Wish I could up the loss to a pound a week but I will take what I can get. At least the scale is moving in the right direction! Thank you everyone for all of your sharing, support and encouragement.
update~ lost 10 lbs in July and hope to do the same during August!
update 1/1/12- I've been maintaining my goal weight for the past 2 months! Planning on staying here and continuing on this journey with you guys!

    Thanks for your comment, Sally....I'm happy to have gone down 2 sizes and the 20 pounds but I have a long way to go to catch up with you! Congrats! When I lose those last 15 pounds I'll be so thrilled!

    Good morning, Sally! Thanks so much for the stability ball....I need more stability in my life, lol, AND I need to get back on the ball, too!

    School is challenging this year. So much to do to appease the parents---more than in recent years, for some reason. I guess it will end up okay!

    How wonderful to have that man compliment you---I'm sure it's a great boost! Hope the rest of your week will be wonderful.

    My FAAN walk was so exhausting! There's a cool front coming to Houston but it wasn't to be found at the walk. They didn't start until 10:00 and mostly was in direct sun. i'm wiped out, but glad I did it!

    Hi, Sally! Day four for both of us, huh? We are testing to decide math groups. We are doing first and 2nd grade math and we have a Welcome Coffee next week---we want to get the testing over so when the parents are with us we can have answers to 'why' the kids are 'where' they are! I made a spreadsheet and after tomorrow we can tabulate. I don't want it hanging over my head for the weekend! So much to do on the first week!
