It's OK to make new traditions, especially when old habits don't bring the healthy results we are striving for.
My mother loves to cook. She is great at baking cakes. She uses whole milk.
(I drink skim.)
My uncle's fiancee' loves to cook and entertain. They wanted to take the family to breakfast at the local cafeteria AND to dinner at the Carrabas' Italian restaurant...all in one day!
Our family reunnion photos are usually around a table of food or a buffet. Birthdays and holidays are celebrated with old favorite dishes, something for everyone (rather than trying new, lower calorie dishes).
So for the past two weeks, I've had to tread carefully around meals, trying to survive to get back home and to "my routine."
The relatives have gone home... so time to shed the extra pounds and make plans for doing better in the future!
