Hi Deb, Yes. That wise lady was you!
As I only ate about 1200-1450 calories,though, b/c my body feels completely, totally full with that, dropping 500 calories isn't going to happen. I know. I'm a strange duck when it comes to weight loss. Always have been, always will be, I guess. Ah well, who ever said life comes without challenges?! I'll do the first phase of it and see how it goes. It's only 2 weeks w/out fruit and bread-type foods so it won't be too bad!
Take care, Deb, and thanks so much for your wisdom. You're truly a blessing.
