Dear Aunt Ga, talk about inspiration, you should be the one who inspires us-- look at you, you got to your goal weight and maintained it! I agree with you, Just like loosing weight, resolutions are easier to keep when taken in small doses.

i AM SURE YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE TO MAKE A MINI RESOLUTION. I THINK THAT IS HOW WE ALL SURVIVE. YOU ARE A GOOD ROLE MODEL TO ALL OF US. I ALWAYS TRY TO FINISH UP LAST YEARS RESOLUTIONS BEFORE I ADD ANY MORE. THIS YEAR I THINK I WILL JUST RESOLVE TO KEEP BREATHING AND BLESS THE LORD FOR THAT. emoticon

I hear ya! I always schedule my heart checkups in February, it gives me that extra incentive to not gain weight, but can still cheat a little over the holidays on my calories. I don't waste my calories on alcohol either, not when I can have a nice baked apple in the microwave.

Yeah, I once told my doctor we'd have to change my first of January appointment to a little later in the month, as I had no intention of being as good during Christmas as I try to be the rest of the year.... how I limit, though, is that if I make the treats, they go to work or to a party and I have only a small taste of them. I've also decided which things matter to me... a perfect, home-baked chocolate chip cookie, yes... packaged with green and red sprinkles, no... a bite or two of my friend Margie's homemade spinach dip on some carrots or celery, yes... plastic tub of french onion from the grocery store, no... In short, I'm selective about the goodies, and have finally learned they are for the taste, not the fill-your-tummy up nutrition... To that end, I eat before I go to a party, something simple, a carton of greek yogurt with a spoonful of high fiber cereal, a slice of turkey and half an apple, a salad with some tuna or chicken on top, something that fills me up for very low calories, that allows me to nibble a few bites of the "good stuff". Also, club soda with a slice of lime over ice takes care of the drink thing, no one notices that you don't have an alcoholic drink and that also fills you up a little.

But, there are always the saboteurs in the bunch, people who bring me pies and cakes and homemade fudge... I taste just enough to write a thank you note and deliver the rest to my neighbors. They think it is grand fun!

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

Now that we have all made it through thanksgiving, it's time for me to focus on Christmas--- No I didn't go shopping on black Friday. I always seem to make a resolution for this time of year to not worry about trying to loose more weight, but to just maintain for the next month. It is hard with all the goodies and candies flowing like water around you. Am I the only one who makes a mini resolution this time of year? emoticon
