Hey there Theresa - Happy Friday!
I'm another Iowa girl who just started - well not technically a girl as I turn 41 in a few months, lol. I grew up in Eastern Iowa, where are you at?
I hear you on the carbs, I love the way they taste, I love to cook them, I love the way they smell....I HATE the way they make me feel - so my problem is definitely taking the time to weigh the deliciousness against the icky feeling I get afterwards!
pbj - or you can just call me Beth!
