Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Good question. I try to remove a lot of oil from things I fry by blotting well with paper toweling. My husband loves fried okra and fried fish but I don't make that kind of thing often. I usually just eat foods like that on rare occasion and adjust the rest of my day to accommodate for the calories - and not worry about it. I guess my theory is that if you don't "deny" yourself of every eating pleasure but just limit the "bad" stuff to an occasional meal, you will stick to your diet plan better then if you try to just do without completely. emoticon You could also try to make a few pieces of chicken oven fired for yourself when the family is having fried chicken.

Actually, if you fry it right and at the correct temperature, there should be no oil. I watched a PBS cooking show with Jacques Pepin on cooking with oil. He measured out two cups of oil. The oil has to be the proper temperature and meat added slowly so as not to lower the temperature. He fried up a bunch of things and at the end there were still 2 cups of oil.

My family likes fried chicken. I usually don't eat the skin, so if it's fried and I don't eat the skin how do I count it. The grease soaks thru the skin!?
