Thanks, guys!! No starvation here, just ready to dump the sugar. I don't believe in abusing the body by starving it, just in eating the way I should. One day at a time. I don't want to have to hide my body at the wedding. Appreciate the support!

Anybody heard from Sushi? I hope he's still employed.

Thier, drink a cup of coffee or caf tea. It'll ease the headache.
Here's an interesting fact I heard on the radio yesterday:
Some study in some country (wow! that's impressive!) gave soup to test subjects. Half of them ate from a regular bowl, while the other half ate from a bowl that slowly had more soup pumped in (without the subject knowing it.) When both halves were questions as to their "fullness" they all replied that they were adequately full, even though those with the never-ending-bowls consumed approximately 73% more soup than the others. This goes to show you that your brain looks at sizes of foods to determine whether it will be full or not. I suggest you start using smaller plates and bowls for your meals, and fill it as though it were a regular sized plate. You'll be surprised at your "fullness" after consuming maybe 30% less each meal.

Another semi-related fact I heard years ago: the color orange is an appetite stimulant. Therefore, do not eat off of orange plates, Thier.

I'm thinking that's why Denny's, Carrow's and Sambo's all had orange naugehyde booths.

Good ideas, jkath!! Thanks. I also know that fast food places like to use bright yellow in order to get people through and out the door. It doesn't encourage customers to stay. McDonald's did that for a long time, as does Subway.

Sambo's! Now there's a place I haven't thought of in awhile. We had some of the best Sunday mornings there.

Any body wanna make me some pancakes? I'm hungry for breakfast now. Yummy!

Thanks!
