Bust out the Neon, head bands & leg warmers because....

I am officially in the 80's!!!!!!!!!!

I said I would have a successful week and I did! I was down 2.6, which has me weighing in at 189. So exciting! Leave it to me, your typical Gemini, to not even let myself enjoy it because I'm already thinking about racing through the 80's and getting into the 70's. I have to remind myself sometimes to slow down and smell the flowers as they say.

This weekend will be 80's inspired. The weather is absolutely miserable, so I'm going to pull out Flash Dance, Dirty Dancing, A Fish called Wanda, Back to the Future and whatever other 80's movie DVD that I can find so I can enjoy a cozy week end in, and remind myself of where I am.

I'm off to clean the house, and you can bet that my play list will be nothing but 80's classics. These are all little reminders for me to enjoy the moment.

Congratulations!!! I'll play a little Bette Davis Eyes in your honor. I think this calls for a rewatch of The Wedding Singer!

YOu know what's funny? WHen I stepped into the 80's, it was with caution and fear it was all a joke. Until I hit 185 did I really relax and feel like I was there! I'm so happy to see someone bust in the door and say "I"M HERE 80's< AND SOON TO KICK YOUR @SS!!" I'm finding the 80's are flying by so far... wish me luck coming up however.
YOur pics are great! You look so fantastic! and that dress is va-va-voom!!! You should be happy! DANCE, GIRL, DANCE!

Hello. I am a university professor who is conducting research on WEIGHT LOSS BLOGGERS AND THE ROLE BLOGGING HAS PLAYED IN THE BLOGGER’S WEIGHT LOSS.

As you may be aware, a lot of research has been done over the years on weight loss but very little has been done on blogging and weight loss. I hope you will help me remedy this.

I have chosen you as a potential research participant because you have a weight loss blog, have a weight loss goal of 100 pounds or more, and have been blogging for at least three months.

If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete a survey that I will email you. Your answers will be completely confidential and I will use a pseudonym of your choice in the final study.

I have an information sheet about the study I would be happy to share with you. Please email me at if you would like to take a look at it.

Thank you for your time and best of luck to you on your weight loss journey.

Republicans and Democrats in Washington came to a compromise and as a concession to democrats, the jobless benefits have been extended. Online Teaching Jobs Getting Started Great Answers to Tough Interview Questions For the salary increase, different perspectives have different judgments. Workers certainly hope that the pay they deserve, the company boss to see the money in fewer unconsciously when they hope the employees understand their situation, so more companies are willing to employ graduates because they are young and full of passion and Pay is not high. Find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed. Relax your body and mind. Look at the values listed below. Make a note of the top ten values which are most like you and the five that are least like you. Take as much time as you need.
