Giving Up the Plus *Plus Size That Is*

I (RE) started SP on September 22, 2011. My journey first began in 2009 when I lost 60 pounds. I got down to 220 pounds, and truly felt as if I had conquered my weight demons. Then suddenly tragedy struck my family. I basically lost sight of me, and my goals.

Since that moment, I have joined SP countless time with no success. However, All I knew was this time when I joined I wanted a change, and I had to do something different to make it happen. I was tired of the ups, and downs ...

It’s New Year’s Day let’s celebrate and cheer
It only comes but once a year!
Resolutions are good, but please don’t overdo it
Because next week you’ll be sad that you didn’t follow through it!

Make 2012 a year to be repeated
In 365 days, be satisfied, not defeated!
You can make this your best year yet
I’ll be right beside you...never forget!

Just stopping in for a visit to see how you're doing now that we're in between holidays? Did you indulge a bit too much? Are you having a little post-holiday remorse because you indulged a little too much? I certainly am! So, now it's up to us to kick ourselves back into gear and travel this journey together to meet our goals!!! Let's do this!

What do we love about Christmas;
Does our delight reside in things?
Or are the feelings in our hearts
The real gift that Christmas brings.
It's seeing those we love,
And sending Christmas cards, too,
Appreciating people who bring us joy
Special people just like you.
By Joanna Fuchs

The Holiday season is upon us so if you plan on baking use try these tips...

•Applesauce and plain yogurt are good fat substitutes in most recipes. For maximum texture and flavor, replace no more than half the amount of the fat listed in the recipe. If a recipe calls for 1/2 cup butter, you can substitute 1/4 cup applesauce, saving 44 grams of fat and 400 calories (the fat and calories in 1/4 cup margarine)
•Mashed ripe bananas work well as fat substitutes in carrot or banana cake or muffins.
•Purchased fruit puree mixtures, usually prune—based, also are good and work especially well in chocolate, spice and carrot cakes. Follow the label directions.
•Baby food in similar fruit flavors can be good as fat substitutes, too.
•Replace 1 whole egg in a recipe with ¼ cup fat-free, cholesterol-free egg product substitutes or 2 egg whites—you'll save more than 10 grams of fat and 100 calories.
