    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    It make not make sense at first, but if you Sleep More , you'll weigh less over the long run. "The link between sleep and weight loss recently received a big boost: a long-term, large-scale study has confirmed that both too little sleep and too much sleep lead to weight gain."

    How much sleep do you get?

    Pounds off since December 2009= 30lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.

    I have to admit there are days, ok- more days than not- that I don't get more than 4 or so hours a day but, I have a very good excuse: My son is 4 months old, teething and has his days and nights mixed up :) Hopefully, I'll get back to a normal amount of sleep soon!
