I resisted the cupcakes... it was the brie and the wasabi crackers and the popcorn (caramel and movie) that got me...

dropped two of the four pounds I gained...

working on it...

I love that: a balmy 8. haha. Guess i feel pretty lucky with 30s and impending snow. Good day to make or eat soup!!! (one of my favorite foods!!! so easy to cook.)

And you're welcome. Everyone is welcome to join us and I am so glad people are: HI MERN!!!! meal plan looks good.

Krystal, dancing is good exercise. And Mern exercising with grandkids; how good is that? It's so great to make exercise something fun instead of just, as Amy used to say, walking or running on the "dreadmill." (I miss our AlMeeker, another motivator.)

But Donna, Krystal, Ama, Jenn, Robin, you all fit in so well! So glad I wasn't alone on the thread for the holidays. I had "my FD" family.

Hi all. We had our "bigger" meal today. We did not cook turkey because my sister-in-law doesn't like it. We had chicken breasts, stuffing and broccoli salad (which was supposed to be the night before but that's a LONG STORY!).
We also had squares for dessert and I only had one AND turned down a Turtle.

Had really sucked on drinking the water but was really glad that my glucose number was 6.1 this morning. .1 higher than the range so I'll take it!!

I still have a very hard time getting my picture taken. A lovely picture of me and my niece and I can't even see it. I take the pictures so I don't have to be in them.

Default Get in the shot!

Jenn, One time we rented a beach cottage, and told the owner I love the photos of your family, but why don't I see any of you there. She said she hates to have her picture taken. I told her I used to be like that, but then one day thought "I'll Never look this good again!" So why not? It's kind of sad to see photos with no middle aged women in them!

Now I have to say I look alot better now then I did last year at this time, but I'd like to encourage you to get in those snaps once in a while! You only go around once you know!

Robin, I'm glad you found this support group, too. Logging my food is the most important key to success for me--that and exercise. I am not an avid exerciser, but I do strive to exercise 5 days a week. I have a gym membership paid for by my health care plan and do best when I use it. We have several snowstorms per year in Ohio but they're generally not as bad as the ones in the northeast USA. The communities 25 miles north of me right now have more snow and ice than we do. We have only a few inches of snow on the ground but the roads are slick. I hope the snowstorm passes you by tomorrow. I have to look up what an actifry is. I certainly am lucky to have grandkids--they're the highlight of my life.

Hope, kudos on dropping two of the four pounds you regained! I made chocolate banana mocha almond flaxmeal muffins today with my granddaughter and they saved me from the leftover German Chocolate cake I made for DH's birthday yesterday. I miss Amy, too, but am so glad to share this week with the rest of you who are back to posting.

Jenn, sounds like a delicious "bigger meal" you had. Kudos on limiting yourself to just one square. I hate having my picture taken, too.

Donna, kudos on looking better this year than last year! Way to go! I do have a picture of myself that I hate that was taken with my great-niece. Hate how my extreme obesity shows in the picture, BUT I'm glad to have the rememberance of a special time with her at her baby shower.

I'm going to be over in my saturated fat today because I ate ground beef chili with a bit of sour cream and cheddar cheese, but I don't do that often and everything else will be nicely in line, so I'm not going to beat myself up over it.

I believe that you have to love your body in order to take care of it. That's my philosophy.

15-25 cm of snow tomorrow. Snowshoeing!
