Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Thank you for the spices! Spice can make all foods new again, and make us grateful for the old ones..what would eggnog be without nutmeg, or split pea soup without thyme, basil, bay? The variance analogous to making life interesting.

So glad the results were okay..since others had it, I guess it might not be what the spices reminded me of. Sometimes, with spice and/or 'greasy' foods, some people experience problems with gall bladder...a lot of digestive type problems/symptoms. And nope, although it might seem so, getting more nerver (gall) and voicing gripes rather than 'internal'izing so much would not be the answer to cure gall bladder probs :)

Hope your week is beautiful!
