Fear not, dieters! According to www.Self.com, most of us start off the new year just one pound heavier. But over a year, those pounds can add up. Here are some figures no pun intended from the Web site to keep you on track during the holidays:

148: Calories burned in one hour of vigorous mall shopping.

340: Calories in a Starbucks Grande Eggnog Latte with skim.

4: Pounds gained if you drank an eggnog latte every day from Thanksgiving until New Year's without changing your current diet or level of exercise.

309: Calories burned in one hour of breaking it down on the dance floor rather than loitering around the holiday buffet table.

SPONGE POP SQUARE BEARS

You can hit two birds with one gift when it comes to baby accouterments. These soft, uber-cute bath sponges ($8.95 each) at Cupcake Boutique in Ward Centre (597-8305) will make get-clean-time play time. Suitcase not included ($10, $12 and $14 depending on size).

The bears are going fast, but there are also frog bath mitts ($9.95) and a slew of too-cute-to-be-true items for baby and mom.

FINAL WORD

"Not my age. Younger. Mid-twenties. Because if you accumulate all the time that I've had on-set where I wasn't actually living life, you could probably subtract years and years."
