    @Mrs_Hoffer - The China Study is an excellent book, it was a regular point of reference for me back in 2007/2008 since the entire content was based on solid, reviewed research with references to the research sources themselves. I imagine it has been updated since then, but my guess is that was foundational to what T. Colin Campbell put in the book you read (not that I know, I haven't read it...yet, might read it now since it sounds like a good one).

    @WhatMeRunning Chris, you are correct in that The China Study was foundational for this book "Whole". And he refers to The China Study several times in this book.

    No winners circle for me this month. @mrs_hoffer I hve also read the China study a while back, such a good read!!

    I love Nye celebrations it's one of the very few times a year I let my hair down and drink cocktails. I like the milky, baileys cocktails so they are very high in calories. I am feeling a bit anxious about it but feel like the best way to handle Nye is to give myself permission ahead of time to hve wat alcohol and food I want for the evening and not to restrict myself. I feel that if I count calories and try to restrict myself I will just self sabatage and end up bingeing in a few days due to depriving myself.. This is exactly wat happened to me at xmas. So this guys is me giving myself permission to drop the counting calories for the day and not feel guilty about it! I'm hoping I will still do my workout in the morning though. Xo

    Another pass day for me - #14.

    Yesterday, the kids and I made homemade pasta with arrabbiata sauce. I'm not sure the time it took to make the pasta was worth it, but it was fun! It did take all 4 of us to do it though. Everyone goes back to their respective homes today. I'm sad that they won't be around, but happy to get back to a routine.

    I was excited to see that I lost 2 1/2 pounds over the Christmas week while my sons were here. I thought it would be a little more challenging with them here, but I was very conscous about my eating and did a lot of walking. That seems to be the difference for me-- when I gain weight is when I am ignoring my behavior and not planning what I will eat. It also makes me wonder if the less intense exercise really is better for my weight loss given my history of adrenal burnout or if it is just a fluke that I lost more weight when I wasnt weightlifting or swimming much.
