I'm dragging a friend out to lunch next week. She's missing half of her staff (okay, 1 of 2) who is on maternity leave, it's budget crunch time, and she's entirely overwhelmed by her regular job... so I'm taking her out of her office so that she can take a break....

... so I agree with the idea!

Thank you for that. This time of year I'm always putting someone else ahead of me and that is what can lead to blahsss and overeating. Now I'll take a step back and do something FOR ME!!!

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.

I like that!! I personally have so much heaped on me at this time, even a wedding (my son's) that I was lamenting the fact that I wouldn't be able to celebrate Christmas the way it should be, and I don't mean just heaps of presents or decorations, I will make sure that there's time for me in there.

Belle- 5ft 3 in.

Nancy is so right! I know that I sometimes neglect doing things for me (minus the exercising, but I have to get up at 4:30 to get that in!!!) so I might try to make a list of things to do for me everyday -- even if it is something small. Thanks for posting this!

MIMI - I think that is fantastic and so simple. We as women tend to forget what we want! As you take on my roles such as mom or a significant other in a relationship what we want falls at the waist side. I find I am a better mom, a better wife, a better daughter, a better friend, a better pet owner when I am happy. My household runs more smoothly also.

Thanks for the reminder. I am making sure I have time for me everyday -- even around all the trips to the mall for Christmas shopping and holiday giving.

& always (typing mistake)...

I went yesterday to my Weight Watchers meeting and the topic was excellent.

From now till January 1st, when you're so busy (and may be stressed because you're so busy), WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO FOR YOURSELF?

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

NOT what you HAVE to do, but what you WANT to do.

If you take care of YOU, you'll manage your weight much better during the holidays (and avoid the Holidays gains).

Do you want to sit and relax and read a book? DO IT!
Do you want to go with your friends for lunch and relax? DO IT!
etc...

Make a list of what you WANT to do and MAKE TIME FOR YOU!

TO HEALTH!

Mimi
