Well since I haven't talked to my sister in a while, because it's so cold and she doesn't want to venture out with her new baby in the cold, I don't knowl.. My competitive spirit is there, and I have noticed a change in my eating patterns... Drinking more water, eating more healthful snacks... or trying to cut down on snacks, etc. I think though, when I get home, and to my home environment things will be easier. My dad has no veggies in his fridge to crunch on so that makes it hard too. I'll survive,though.
