Thanks! I know some of it was water weight, and I know that if I go back to eating like I was I will gain it all back.

I drink diet pop, but I know that water is better for me, and we have good water (a well, plus I filter it in a Brita pitcher), so I need to drink a lot more of it. Fortunately I love vegetables, so that won't be a problem. The problem will be not loading some of them up with butter!

All in all, this partial fast has been a good experience for me, but I don't think I will do it again. I'll make that decision next year. I do think I might do a couple days a week where I just have water and vegetables. One incentive I have to not gain it all back is my New Year's resolution to weigh at least a pound less on the first of each month than the first of the month before. I'm definitely set for February 1, but I will need to keep from gaining so that I will weigh less on March 1!

Why do you have to sneak them in? He has his guitars, etc., hasn't he?

He noticed them, he took the picture. It's a long standing joke about no more teapots. They are literally, all over the place.

Good beautiful warm morning everyone! We got back last night from a "winter wonderland" vacation to Yellowstone Nat. Park. Now I understand what it is to be cold at -24 degrees, and never above 0. It was such a privilege to see this national treasure as few tourists experience, in the dead of winter and bright beautiful sunshine every day. The raw and frigid beauty of the animals and scenery in sunshine will be remembered by this California girl forever.
Believe me, I have a whole new respect for all of you who live your daily lives in frigid temperatures. What a PITA it is to just get dressed in the morning. I never wear more than one layer of clothes all year long here. There, I had on nearly a weeks worth of clothes everyday and looked and felt like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. You folks sure have a lot of weekly laundry to deal with....sheesh!

Here's a picture of our heated "snow catmobile"...the way we toured the closed to the public roads of Yellowstone.

Welcome home, KL. I'll bet you're tired of eating out, too. Aren't you glad to be back in your own kitchen (and weather)?

Thanks Z !! Yeppers I'm hungry for my own cooking although it was nice being waited on. Felt so good this morning to pull on a pair of jeans and a tee shirt,slip on some sandals and be done. Phew!!

The morning we were suppose to do some snowmobiling on our own it was -12 degrees and I promised my kids I wouldn't do anything stupid, so we didn't get to go. Strange how we mind our kids better than they did us. lol

I'd be willing to bet it might have had more to do with the -12F than minding the kids!

Hey, I'm blaming it on them!! It's all their fault for not letting me have my fun!!!
That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
