Alix, that is the way I am at holiday time. After making so many things I don't want to eat them, especially sweets. I don't even want to smell them. My problem is everyday good food.

Most of the time, by the time I'm finished cooking dinner I have smelled that food cooking for too long. I also have a tendency to taste as I go, so it's just not that appealing to me. It's really kinda sad.

Be the kind of woman, that when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says "oh crap, she's up".

generally i cook for me only. snacks are popcorn etc. when i do bake about once a week, i save a few for me and give the rest to son or grandson. about twice a month i made a six person sized recipe . i take out maybe two servings for myself. the rest my son stops by and takes.

as for holidays, i try to send as much home with guests as i can. again only keeping a serving or two for me. i am overweight but not obese. i think not have to much temptation around helps.

I love to cook and love to eat. I never think about weight gain. I am overweight but I am fine, i can do lots of work and I am fine.
