    Oh Jaynee!
You hit the nail on the head... I'll be heading to Kansas City, Mo. and lots good food especially the BBQ! But, I'm in control of what goes into my mouth. And, like you said, portion control is the name of the game. We'll see how it goes. I'm not going to give up if I blow it one day or one meal. Keep me in your prayers. xox JOY emoticon mm emoticon emoticon emoticon

    i can tell you another big secret way to never gain an ounce on these holidays: I work all day,every day until Saturday, so will not have any of these treats.. just a nice shower and ice water afterwards. That is MY simple way to avoid any trouble from my mouth-watering cravings.
