I am in again. This last year was not very successful. I gained last winter due to SAD but didn't lose it when it warmed up for some reason--and I didn't post in my journal to go back and see why. I am hoping that this year will be better!!

JAnn, is SAD seasonal disorder...? have you tried taking Vitamin D? I do and I find that helps... Thanks for joining in!

I've started this a little earlier this year, as I've been thinking of what the New Year is going to bring. My 2015 wasn't a stellar year either.

I think I would like to join this yearly commitment. It should be interesting to see the change (hopefully) in a line for the year!

Yes it is. I am taking 8000 of Vit d units per day. Plus the dr. wants me out in the sun 15 minutes a day, which isn't happening right now. However, I do feel better. Now I just need to figure out why I do not seem to stay on plan and when I do I still don't lose.

Thanks for starting this.

For SAD sufferers: look online for "full spectrum lights". Amazon has a decent selection. I live in MN, where the only time that it's sunny in winter is when the temps are +10F or below. NO WAY I'm going to hang out outside when it's that cold, so I use my light box, and it helps a lot.
