i am on ww and i like it because i can choose what i want to eat. if you are disciplined and committed to losing weight, this is a good option. you can get your points in with whatever foods you'd like. of course you have to make sure to balance, but it makes eating that treat much easier. and they have a core plan as well that you don't have to count points so strictly on but rather eat from a list of foods.

I am debating on which of them to choose, ponits or the core. I like ww but I don't like going to the meetings... I never find time to go. That is why I was considering nutrisystem. The online version of ww sounds good, but I don't know if I'll follow it. I lack the discipline [ Reply | More ]

The operative word here being "some." And I know dc at non-G&T publics who get just as much homework. The dc of my df is at the Ella Baker school, which is supposed to be so progressive and nurturing, and she was getting ~45 minutes of homework every night in K. Other df w/ dc at PS 110, the gen ed NOT the G&T, were complaining at their dc had close to an hour per night in 1st grade. I hear people complaining about this more and more. [ Reply | More ]

the expectations are that the homework gets done, basically. 1st and second grades have a daily reading log and at least two worksheets. third grade adds a third worksheet and major projects every month or so. it's not that tough and high-achieving kids are usually super-motivated anyway. and they offer extra help for students who are having trouble with specific parts of the G&T curriculuum.

I went to the open house and was impressed, but the school seems overcrowded and underfunded. Given that the model of G&T is enrichment not acceleration, are there the resources for real enrichment? How do the G&T kids relate to the rest of the school. Are they together for recess and lunch and class trips? I'm also wondering about homework. Is it drill oriented or actually useful?

^^^ You should consider Mamaroneck (Larchmont-Mamaroneck or Rye Neck School district, both good school districts). Good commute, downtown not as cute as Tarrytown, but you can always drive or walk to Larchmont's downtown depending on where you live in Mamaroneck or to Rye's downtown if you want the cuteness factor. Mamaroneck has a great public library and a theater (Emelin Theater), a lot of playgrounds and the harbor. It has great recreational activities, mostly shared with Larchmont. [ Reply | More ]

becuase I feel an obligation to go for my DS and we have other plans that day. I am annoyed that she (the mother) assumed that we would want to spend our 4th at her house. [ Reply | More ]

I don't get it. Just tell her sorry, can't be there and maybe she will get it that people don't attend parties on holidays. Not a big deal. Not worth wasting time feeling upset and annoyed about IMHO, but hey - it's your life. [ Reply | More ]

op: Will do, just wondering if someone has actually lived with the couch. I will testify that my microfiber crate and barrel sectional couch held up to major toddler abuse but I hated how the feathers kept working their way out of the inner pillows and scratching me! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] So sick of this thyroid problem.When I started synthroid .25 a few weeks ago it seemed tp help'now I'm back to complete exhaustion again.I wish I could afford an endocrinologist that was not so conservative and scared to raise my dose,The best ones are a fortune.Do psychpharmacologists work the same way? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

are they watching you? checking your blood levels etc? Seems like I had to go back after a month or so to get checked. Maybe they need to raise it slightly or maybe there is something else going on with you [ Reply | More ]

ditto to this...never heard of a conservative vs. liberal endocrinologist. I've just gone to a plain old endocrinologist. [ Reply | More ]

np: there are some who are much more willing to base their interventions on clinical symptoms rather than just test results/blood levels. those who are not are considered more conservative. it can be very frustrating, since optimal hormonal levels vary a great deal from person to person.
