That reminds me of the comedian Lewis Black and his rant about soy milk: Milk doesn't need a friend!

Caroleaine and Elaine, both your posts prove that stress has such an insipid way of wreaking havoc with our appetites. I wish you both a healthy new year.

I only weigh myself when my pants start to feel tight and yep, they started feeling tight right around Christmas! I gained 4 pounds and it's all ya'll's fault! Before I joined DC I couldn't make anything that tasted good enough for anyone to overeat!!!

I gained about 2 1/2 pounds. Not too bad, but I'm back on the wagon re carbs, etc. I attribute the gain to inactivity, since I was up North in below freezing, windy weather and didn't do my usual walking, etc.

I put on 3 Kilos during 2 weeks of Christmas and New Year. I have lost one of them. Hopefully the other 2 will disapear over the next 2 weeks with healthy eating.
But I have to say it was worth it.

That is a GREAT idea!
I'll bring 'em out, I haven't been back to New York (and vicinity) in about 15 years. (Born in the Bronx). But I doubt he needs mine with your talent around!

Thanks VeraBlue......good luck to you too!

Ah, but one good bourbon deserves two more!

And how did losing weight become about bourbon again?
