Happy 2009!

Well, we've entered into a new year and are drawing near to the end of a decade. How time does fly! Folks often speak of new year's resolutions at this time of year. I made up my mind to bypass resolutions attached to January first years ago. I heard someone say that if a resolution is that important you should have started it months ago rather than wait till January to do it.

We are on a trip to Illinois and are reading the book "You, on a diet." It is very interesting and informative. So far I've learned that if someone eats 20 peanuts about 30 minutes before a meal, the 70 calories of fat will trigger the mechanism that allows us to feel full earlier than we would otherwise be aware of it. (they call it the satiety trigger) Well, I'm all for that. In fact, why not make that into a resolution for the new year (one that I just might be able to keep!) Just a thought. Ed

I believe 20 minutes of exercise will do the same thing AND you will reduce the fat intake also. But then that might be a harder resolution.......Love ya!
