Still haven't managed to 'start' a diet, though I am happy to report that I have lost 10lbs. The weight loss is due to all the physical work that I have been doing in packing up our house in Texas and moving it and unpacking it in California. I love all the fresh vegetables and fruits here in Northern California. Now I just need to educate myself on healthy eating. I love to cook and am great at cooking lots of good 'ole southern comfort food... not too healthy, though.
