Stopped at a seafood restaurant yesterday. Their special was fried seafood platter. Everyone in our party had that and fries. I ordered the steamed shrimp with hot spicy butter! And I was down one pound this morning!!

I love Christmas but I hate the pressure. I asked my daughter if she could do without homemade Christmas cookies, and she said yes, and to please have salad fixins around when she gets home for the holidays, so yay!

What a beautiful solution - and in more ways than one! And what fun, too :) Plus, the songbirds will enjoy them! emoticon

Thank you! What I said to a closer friend was this:
"Say, when we think of our gifts this year, could we do non food items? We both love our backyard songbirds, can we give each other something to deal with them for year around enjoyment?"
She thought it was a marvelous idea, so I sent her birdfeeder ornaments that she can hang in her yard. Ironically, she sent me the same!! Very appreciated gift and won't add a pound to us! Yay!

LININPARADISE! I think you've just underscored the value of a quiet, harmless way to dodge the caloric "bullets" many of our friends shoot our way this time of year: REGIFTING!

Well done!!

I was so proud of myself today. I received a box of chocolate and butterscotch fudge from a company that specializes in confections. My "friend" sent it to me (and she knows I do low carb, so go figure:)
I looked in the box and saw the beautifully wrapped goodies. Put the bow back on the box and had hubs take it to his office to put on the "share your goodies" table! Bye, bye, as I go eat a hard boiled egg for my mid morning snack!
