Hi Gals!

Just got in from a concert - -actually it was a commedienne - - Chonda Pierce - -what a great night!!

It was so nice to be able to come home, have a light snack and check in and find a lovely "cyber slumber party" in progress!! What fun!

What a great idea to do a local meetup on Emotional Eating. I would love to do that. Will have to ponder that. I've never lead anything in my life. ( Administration is not my strong suit!) But...it may be time, who knows.

I am on chapter 10 of SY and man o man the lightbulbs are popping, the fireworks are going off and the champagne corks are flying! I feel that real hope and real help has arrived after decades of searching.

It hasn;t been easy. But I am willing to do the work required. I am ready. It is time.

Hope you are having a great evening!

Oolala - I sent her an email before I saw your post. It would be great for you to be a co-leader and get everything set for us. We don't have to start right this minute! As you know I am already co-leading on LBF, so I'm happy to take on something new if needed but I certainly have my hands full! I am all about helping other folks step up and find a good place to use their talents so go for it girl!

Oh yes, a slumber party, that sounds like just the kind of fun I need - our little cyber-slumber party ;-)

Our teamleader actually invited me to be a co-leader, but I haven't accepted because I wanted to wait until I was done teaching (one more week) and I would have time to learn the ropes. I'm interested in setting things up to work for us, since we are the first apostles, here anyway. However, if you write her, she may give you the chance, too. go for it! I'll jump in later, if the offer is still there. I'm even thinking of starting a local meetup group on it, although I may just make it on emotional eating issues, to allow for people who are inspired by other books on the same wavelength. then I can lure them into my Temple of Gould! Actully, I think he won't be my last biblio-guru, but he is definitely one of the best.

ooo ooo this is fun! I feel like I am doing something subversive, but at the best kind of slumber party!

I will email our leader to see if we can get a forum created for "book discussion" and if so, add the threads with the titles of each chapter. If we cannot get a forum specifically for this then I'll just set up the threads for each chapter.

I read just the intro last night and already a light bulb has gone off! Very excited (for the first time in a long time in regards to this issue)!

Sounds Great!! I like the 1 chapter at a time / on a thread b/c it will help us now, help new folks as they join in, and can be used over again as needed.
Not sure how to set it up though. (Hint hint!)

I have an idea - why don't we create a thread for each chapter (it would be awesome if our leader could make a forum specifically for this - hint hint) and then anyone could discusss any chapter at anytime - this would also be good for when new folks come on, they can pick the chapter they want to read our comments on or ask questions on (thinking more down the road).

Woo hoo - my book was in the door when I got home today. I am so excited. I signed up online to do the FREE 4 day session where they email you a brief article and questions for 4 days in a row and just the two I've done so far have been very eye opening for me and I have not binged the last 2 days either - progress!

I could get into that. Would we have someone chosen to start a new topic on the chapter focus? Actually, after seeing this on other sites, I wonder if we should have it divided so that we could discuss anything from a few chapters at a time. It can get very spread out on separate chapters. Or we could try it out one at a time and switch to multiples later, depending on how it is going.

We could also have ones on the second part which deals a little more with the guidelines for eating.

My book will be here in a few days. I am wondering if anyone reading the book is interested in us taking it chapter by chapter (or maybe less than that depending on how big the chapters are) and discussing them here?
