    It's helped me a LOT to be aware of the Fall/Winter treats that I have, in the past, pigged out on. My biggest weakness is caramels. I have them, but I avoid them, only having about 3/week. Chocolate has never been a big problem, but my DH swears that giving yourself very small treats will keep you from eating too much, and won't ruin your calorie intake.
    RE: Thanksgiving, I make our families joint meal, so I have control over the ingredients. Here was last Thursday's menu:
    --Turkey, cooked with sage leaves (from my herb garden outside), onion, s & p, covered with aluminum foil and cooked for 5 hours, low
    --Turkey gravy, made w/drippings, ground/cooked liver, milk and flour (high fiber--"King Arthur" is one HF brand)
    --Mashed potatoes, made with milk and sour cream and salt
    --Corn, cooked and drained from the can, which drains off some salt
    --Okra, fried. Our family loves it and it disappears, but there are never leftovers so the portions are small
    --Cranberry/Orange relish, made with fresh ingredients, and that keeps that sugar needed smaller
    --Fresh Glazed carrots, from my garden, picked that day, boiled
    --Glazed sweet potatoes, boiled--both LIGHTLY glazed with butter and brown sugar. Don't like "some Sweet Potatoes with my marshmallows"
    --1-2-3 salad--SIL made, apples, onions and pickles mixed with mayo
    White wine
    We made 3 pies: pumpkin, lemon merange and cherry. Everybody was too full to have them until after our "Uncle Tusky Uno" game, and nobody had big pieces.
    I didn't gain an ounce fropm Thanksgiving, but I also started the turkey at 5 am, and worked about 3 hours on the meal, and that always helps.
    SIL does the Christmas dinner, and I make myself take small portions, so I don't eat too much.
    Thought this might help somebody on the thread.
    ONE MORE THING, for the New Year's. You will drink less alcohol if you take your hard liquor on the rocks, and nurse it. You will also sober up quicker.

    Well, did some workouts yesterday with my kinect: UFC trainer. Quit half way through....the workouts were demanding and I was ready to calf half way through. Went downstairs and worked out on some weights.

    There are days I wished I had a body of a 20 yr old...it would be sooo much easier to get in shape.

    Me too. I was in my best shape in my early thirties...then pregnancy came....POOOF!!!!! Then it was all gone.

    I'm not giving up though.....I think it might just take a whole lot longer to get back in shape than it took when I was in my thirties.

    Not me, I've been in my worst shape since 26.. From 19 - 23 - pre kids. I was riding out 15 horses a day, muckin out 30-40 stalls, playin camogie AND I Had to walk 3 miles to and from work every day. Then I had kids...

    Anyway guys, I'm still not weighing myself. Went to gym for 30 min and then aquafit on Wed. Spent 60 min in the gym on Thurs.... have to say it was an easy workout as one of the jockeys I know was tryin to lose a few lbs so he pushed me the whole time. Then yesterday I had a rushed 40 min in the gym again... could say 42 min if we include me legging it down the stairs and into the changing rooms when I realised I was late

    Although I'm not stepping on the scales, my jeans are getting baggier around my legs and I can tell I've lost weight on my arms, neck and face. There is the slightest of slight improvements on my muffin top... or maybe I'm just imagining it and it's wishful thinking lol!

    Keep up the good work everyone!!

    I've stayed at the same weight this week, which isn't necessarily a bad thing! I wasn't the best this week food wise or exercise really but I am starting to feel better about myself all the way around. I did a 2 km jog/run, which isn't really that impressive but I did it non stop and that was the farthest I think I've jogged/ ran (non stop anyways). I rode 4 times this week which was great for me and my horse! Hoping to get out to the gym at least 3 times this week.

    I haven't had a Coke in 4 days. Major accomplishment...it's normally the only thing I drink. So proud of myself! I aslo drank a liter of water. I'm aiming for at least 2 liters per day so I'm halfway there. Go me :)

    Well I ended the week 341 Cals over my goal but if I figured my calorie intake correctly I can go up to 1,400 over in the course of a week and simply maintain my weight so I'm not stressing about it just yet

    How's everyone else doing?

    I don't think Christmas holidays are helping at my end. My girls love it when I'm baking christmas cookies and cinnabons for their school lunch. Of course...I end up sneaking a goodie or two and then I try to work the darn 'crap' off. I sure look foward to January.... no more christmas baking and it's whole lot easier to stick to my salads. I'm waiting for results...but I think my body likes to irritate the living 'heck' out of me.

    For those of you who are losing weight, or just plainly getting fit. Congratulations!!!!!
