    Wishing you all much happiness, good health, peace, love and prosperity in 2013!

    I am not a New Year's Eve partier. Like to stay home; watch some football and try to stay awake to bring in the New Year. I've made some resolutions this year and am excited to begin a new year.

    What are your plans for tonight? Whatever they are, be safe out there and have lots of fun.

Am spending today shopping for a deck of playing cards and renting a few movies(that Anna doesnt already have) so that I can ring in the New Year teaching my granddaughter War, Go Fish and the memory game where u lay em all out face down and try to fimd a matching "mate", eat popcorn and watch flix.
    hope everyone does have a great and wonderful New Year

    Happy New Year!

    I like to make plans and get excited for the new year, too. DH and I went to a party where we could dance and there were younger people there, too. It was so much fun to see them enjoy dancing, too.

    Debbie, the best part was great prime rib. I know how much you enjoy that, too. I think that was top of the list, best part of night!

    Today, Jan., 1st, pushing RESET button. LOL

    I had prime rib too, Barb. It was fabulous! Nice and rare just like I like it. The dance sounds awesome. I love that you and your DH do that.

    I lost the pounds that I gained over Christmas so I'm pleased with myself and looking forward to a great year maintaining. As you always say, we CAN do this!

    Debbie, I eat alot of veggies, but sometimes just got to have a burger or prime rib or steak (as a treat).

    Look at you, back to 150!!!

    I'm glad you are here, because maintenance is tricky. That was/is the slippery slope. I find that support here is the best way to keep on track. Just sharing and seeing that others are here is key.

    Nice to see some "old crowd", like Marci, back, too.

    We went to my sister in law's house and played board games and xbox kinect then we went home before the new year came. I slept right through it. I couldn't make it. The next day the hubs and I went to lunch and a movie. My goals are the same. Staying healthy and try to live a happy life.
