Jubilee - I'm so glad that Dr. M cleared things up for you - isn't he great. I'm amazed at how he responds to emails so quickly despite what must be a very busy schedule. He is incredible. Just watch out for those added fats like he said - they are lurking everywhere. Better yet, just eat things that don't have a box, can , or jar.
Matt - thanks for the intro. I'm impressed and encouraged by your zeal and sober-mindedness regarding the Lord and His work. I pray that you will do well in your studies, and that the Lord will guide you to where He wants you to serve. At least eating in any of the countries you mentioned will be very easy as a McDougaller - you'll fit right in.
How is everyone else - texgal, KC (where are you?) love the lorax, Mrs. Doodlepunk. I hate making lists because I know I'll leave someone out that I didn't want to - hope everyone is OK.
I went on a beautiful, cool, peaceful 3.6 mile walk this morning and then my younger son and I spent about an hour doing yard work. The front yard looks real nice now. We had to clear out some ugly ground cover to let the red apple spread out more and fill in. It has been quite a project but it's pretty much done. Yeah.
Food wise I'm doing well and as long as I stay active I do great. I'm still down a few pounds but have about 8-10 more to go and then I'll be where I like to be. I just have to not do any mindless snacking.
Blessings to all,
