Thanks Fran -- needless to say, it doesn't always work out that way! I know that different things work for difference folks, you kind of have to find out what works best for you.

That is a lot of cookies and a lot of work, I am sure your cookies will be much appreciated as gifts. I spent the morning 're-making' xmas cards from last year's cards. Then walked over to library and post office and now I am sitting doing Spark stuff and then will be about ready to wrap some gifts (no getting grease stains on the paper for me either!) Tonight I am going to hear my granddaughter's choir sing in a Christmas concert, looking forward to hearing those angelic voices.

I have to agree it was an awful day and it continues on toady. how sad to think you were going to make ginger bread houses see Santa and enjoy the last few days before Christmas.
Way to go on leaving the cheese cake on the plate !! No sure I could do that.
with the news on the TV I found my self eating mindlessly so got my self out to the house and do the errands planned for today. I just finished frosting 120 sugar cookies and they are drying in the bedroom. sounds like a lot of cookies but they are for gifts and my Brother to take back to Denver with him. Need to get some of the wrapping today another project that helps with mindless eating can't eat and wrap the paper get grease stains emoticon

Bob left for 3 days and I ate everything here. I feel I will get sick enough that it will be a long time before I eats chocolate or sweets again.

I couldn't hang on anymore last night. I kept thinking when will all this sickness end . At first I blamed it on the economy but 20 little innocent babies, I think not. How do we stop all these senseless deaths. This is mans doing no Gods. Obama isn't my favorite man but I felt so bad for him. It was so plain he was struggling and his heart was broken. How my heart went out to him and his family.

It's a very tragic event -- and as Stichingnan says, we are all asking why?

As for the question, I agree it is an extra tough time of year to stay on course but one strategy that helps me is that I no longer belong to the 'clean plate club'. I want to say here that I am very aware and grateful that we live with such a wonderful abundance of food, I sometimes think we are very fortunate to even have overweight as a problem! However, I was raised not to waste and I still sometimes feel guilty or that I am being judged if I leave food on my plate -- but these days I have learned to put my health and happiness first. So that cheesecake I was served on Wed -- I enjoyed a few bites and left more than half of it, to go to waste (not to waist!)

Yes Fran it was a horrible day, I found myself glued to the tv, I hate it when this sort of crisis happens and I can't seem to pull myself away from the news. I am heart broken for those families and ALL the children, such a horrible way to lose their purity and innocence. My prayers will be with them all... for quite some time.

As for holiday food, yesterday wasn't really a holiday but it was an "event" ... lunch with Dad and his wife and my "adopted brother"... we went to my fathers favorite place... I had been thinking about (not really craving) a nice juicy hamburger. SO I got one. I could only eat half of it and had a tomato and vinegar salad as a side dish. BUT the big thing at the end was Dad ordered a slice of Key Lime Pie for all of us to share.... well, they all had a few bites, I had 5 ... I was on such a sugar high, I felt as though I could float home. LOL But I made up for it today with a much purer and healthy food choices. Plus and extra half hour of exercise this morning.

I am now away that I am not as strongly immune to the treats that are out there as I thought I was. SO I will have to reign that in before the real celebrations begin. emoticon

be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.
