5) Freezing 1/4 cup of juice in bottom of water bottle then adding water over the frozen juice. Yumm....I drink more water that way.
6) Walking the dogs every evening.
7) Visualizing cravings as little beasts and disciplining them by telling them "no" they may not have sugar. That way I do not feel deprived.
8) Decluttering house. It's uplifting and fights cravings.
9) Gardening
10) Enjoying the sunshine.
11) Hearty vegetable and bean soup in a rainbow of colors.
12) Eliminating most wheat products from diet.

Good to hear from you and glad you can rejoin TOPS. I took a break of about a year and went back in September. A really nice couple from maybe Rainier, Gloria and Larry visit our chapter occasionally.
The photo on my page is countryside of Norway - a place I just visit in pictures. So beautiful and so like Astoria. No wonder so many Scandinavians settled here.
