Good tip, Paula - thanks for the reminder. I must get myself some of that, been meaning to for a while.
Well, after a few false starts where circumstances seems to conspire mightily against me, today is my first official 500 cal Down Day. I've turned down an invitation to a dessert-laden afternoon tea because I acknowledge that I really need to get on top of my weight situation NOW, and stop telling myself I know what to do and just DO it.
So far, so good. We'll see what mental tricks my body tries to play on me today.
