I can't talk long; will do more this weekend. BUT -- I had to share this:
I stepped on the scale last night; I lost 5.6 pounds. That is a new total of 192.6 gone. I haven't had a loss like that in forever. I have no idea how it happened. I am not questioning it -- I am planning to accept my good fortune and pray hard that next week it doesn't show a gain of 4.8 or something like that.
And that for lunch today, I actually ate collard greens. I am Southern and just cannot abide certain typical Southern fare. Greens are one of them. I just hate greens. Always have. These were fantastic. We had lunch brought in today, and it was one of the only ways I was going to get some veggies in. They were SOOOOO good. Not in and of themselves. I'm sure they were cooked with ham bits in them. But they were still good!
