Roo- I hear that! After the holidays all I want to do is sleep and eat. Especially when it's so dang cold! But.. no reason you can't still make crockpot meals! Nothing says winter like the ol' crock pot. I like to make shredded chicken (with either buffalo sauce or some WF barbecue sauce) or a nice roast. I 'doctor it up' for the rest of the house once I've taken my portion (and sometimes taken a portion for the next night's dinner) so I don't cook 2 separate meals and still get what I need! I love that crock pot.
Ecmc- you've figured out that IP works for you, and you've figured out how to continue the results you need! So I'd say that's a great re-start. I also find that reading the boards is very helpful. Even if you don't always participate, it's nice to know that there are others out there doing the same thing, and it keeps it in the front of your your mind! Hope your health issues are doing better.
