Well, ladies, with 3 kids I don't get much time alone, but if I work at it, I can talk my husband into taking the kids for a walk so I can get a moment of peace and quiet.

The city I live in tries to keep Trick or Treat on a weeknight. It's pretty disruptive to the normal school routine, but it keeps the kids off the streets on Saturday night, when there's more traffic and whatnot.

Eat those Halloween treats in moderation today! I don't know about you all, but we are having Trick or Treat tomorrow night. Stay strong! If you have a piece of candy, good for you! Enjoy every minute of it. Just don't overdo it!

You're killin' me DJ. I am taking my residents to the Jack In The Box tomorrow for lunch. I was planning on having the Chicken Fajita Pita which is only 300 calories. Oh well, guess I can't win every challenge.

Good point, Cheryl. But if you are anything like me, there are at least a few that you may have tried and said, "I hope to never have to do that again!" Work on your least enjoyable strength training exercises for Tuesday!

Cheryl,

I read the posts backwards, forgetting that yesterday's challenge was about chocolate (which I didn't eat. Thankfully beer wasn't in the challenge -- LOL). I saw that you ate 3 whoppers. I was thinking, how could anyone possibly eat three of those huge sandwiches???

You are quite a woman, Cheryl!! WooHoo!

Now I have blown it DJ. You will challenge us to no alcohol on some weekend, won't you?

The real test, Cheryl, is what did you do when you remembered the challenge? I did not do so well. Once I failed the challenge, I had a brownie melt from McDonalds, which was wrong is oh, so many ways... But alas, I am human.

Well, sorry to admit, I didn't make today's challenge. I was at my kids' soccer game and I had a hot chocolate, to keep from freezing my tail off. I hope you all had better luck with today's challenge!

I usually don't keep chocolate around but at work I have $135.00 worth of Halloween candy in my office. I bought it for the trick or treaters that come to our building. I guess I better hide it somewhere, because I simply can't be trusted. LOL

Send a sparkmail message to a sparkfriend today. In the midst of school, fall sports, busy work schedules, and all our other daily obligations, too often we forget or don't find the time to take care of ourselves. So, I challenge you to seek out a friend you haven't heard from in a while and motivate/encourage them continue their weight loss/maintenance journey!

I find it easier to get in my cardio than my strength training exercises and I suspect that may be true for a lot of us.

So Friday's Challenge is to try a new Strength Training Exercise.

I was just coming by to ask about how to be placed on a team! Thanks for looking out for me :)
I was just thinking of motivational quotes for a friend so will work on that challenge.
Got the water one worked in and SO right I was also thinking how much harder that gets when it gets colder! Perhaps warm tea :)
thanks all, Deb

We have a new team member, LIVEN2BPINK. Please join me in welcoming her to our great team!

She would like to join our Biggest Loser Challenge on weigh-in day (this coming Saturday!!!), but we need someone else to join at that same time, as we decided last month. Would anyone out there like to join into our challenge? Please let me know! We would love to have you and it would help out our newest team member!

Wednesday's Challenge:

It's a lot harder to remember to drink your water when the weather gets cooler. So make sure you drink at least 8 glasses on Wednesday.

Is there anyone out there who will volunteer to post challenges this week until DJ feels better - say post them tomorrow through Saturday and maybe DJ can pick back up next Sunday?

It seems that sometimes people aren't getting notification of new threads or current ongoing threads. The way to see what discussion threads exist is this:

Go to "The Weight is Over!" team page. You will find 4 Forums there. They are: General Discussion; Introduce Yourself; Team Challenges; Share Your Healthy Secrets. Under each forum is a list of threads. You can click on any of those topics and read or comment on the discussion there. Once you leave a comment, you are typically "subscribed" to that discussion and when new comments are made, you will get a notice of that in your email. You can also click on the button marked SUBSCRIBE TO THIS DISCUSSION, across from the REPLY button and you will be signed up to get notices.

You can manage which threads you are subscribed to by going to your START page (START is the first button in the drop-down menu under TOOLS). If you click on START, go to the right side of that page, go down under MY MESSAGE BOARD ACTIVITY and click on MANAGE MY BOARD SUBSCRIPTIONS, you will see a list of your active threads and your inactive threads.

I hope this helps.

Jen
