Control

Emily has asked lots of wonderful questions in her comments and I will answer them ASAP. But I just got back from my  2 MILE RUN (ahem), actually it was 3.4 miles over all, and I am really stinky and the sweat is drying and that makes my skin itch so I need to jump in the shower.

What I really wanted to tell you was that the word "control" has been top of mind for me lately. I think I am enjoying my new found control over my body as much or even more than all the physical/mental benefits I am experiencing. And those benefits are very significant! But the control, I never felt like I had control over my cravings or my appetite.

It has been 6 weeks today that we started this program and I am in control of myself.

Self Control.

It's a wonderful, powerful new feeling. I love it.

I'll be taking my veg/tofu lasagne out of the oven in 15 min. For dinner we are having:
1. small, ripe Mexican manges
2. huge green salad with red peppers and tofu, and pinenuts
3. above delish lasagne which you made at your cabin

THis is so completely fascinating. I wish I could sit down and have lunch with you and ask you a billion questions.

Also, I want a photo of you!

Jessica - let me make you a lunch! We'll have bean burgers with guacamole and a huge salad with cucumber, apples and walnuts and then citrus salad for dessert! Yum!
