This Sparked Me!

We're in the Bermuda Triangle of Holidays where even a seasoned Maintainer can lose footing. Let's make a choice not to! We made the choice to lose weight, let's make a choice to maintain during the next months. Plan. Track. Exercise. Talk it out with those who understand. Let the holidays be one meal, not days on end of eating. Make the holidays about friends and family. Celebrate the occasion, not the food. YOU are sooooo worth the effort! emoticon

One favorite is butternut squash cooked and mashed like potatoes topped with cinnamon instead of the pie

I also want to try mashed turnips which are good for you and low cal
