I am not sure if this is the right place for this or if I understand the purpose of this board. But hubby and I are focusing this week on EATING SLOWLY. It is more of an issue for him than for me, but if I wait until I get too hungry I will eat faster than I normally do. ALso I am trying to remember to eat with my non-dominate hand to help me slow down.

Me, too, Dee!

With computer issues, and family crises, I did not begin any new habits. However, I have kept up my water intake, and walked a little bit more than I was doing, so

Certainly the goals of the challenge were NOT to elicit shame, but rather create teaching tools from which we can all learn.

Perhaps the lesson here is that it is difficult to establish and practice new habits when we are very busy with work, family obligations, illness, vacations and so on. That is why starting small and building good habits up slowly are important.

I would encourage any little, tiny change a step toward improvement. Congratulate yourself for getting in a few minutes of exercise or one more glass of water than you had yesterday. Give yourself a pat on the back for choosing the salad and not the fries. Whoop it up if you picked water and not soda pop.

Me? I'm doing the happy dance because the brand new digital scale (purchased this past winter) is out of the box, on the kitchen counter, and has been properly used THREE times since this challenge began. emoticon I lived to tell about it after thinking measuring my food might actually kill me! emoticon

I'm ashamed to have to admit that I did not succeed in making new habits.... I think my problem was that with the work on the math books added to all our regular responsibilities has just had me too busy, and a bit stressed. And so most of the time, I didn't do what I hoped and planned to do!!!

I do think the challenge was a great idea! It just wasn't a good time for me, I guess.

This is the last week of our challenge! I hope everyone has learned something from our posts and shared experiences.

I welcome your feedback, both positive and negative. I'd like to hear from you even if you did not 'publicly' participate in the challenge. Perhaps you did it on our own; perhaps you 'lurked' here a bit and read all the posts.

Feel free to use this thread to post comments about the challenge. If you would prefer to let me know privately, feel free to sparkmail me.

Many thanks to all of you who participated! emoticon
