Well I did it yesterday. It's official, I now qualify for senior citzen discounts at most restaurants & retailers in our area. How did this happen?
My girlfriend called on her cell phone and told me she'd happened up on a deal on Bra's while out shopping, knew it was my birthday and wanted to know what size I wore. (Thinking that underwear is something I'd rather purchase myself) I told her 36C Extra Long. She asked if I meant longline bras? I said "No", just your regular 36C Extra Long. She was silent for a moment and finally said I don't know what you mean by Extra Long. I explained that what no longer stands up, now hangs down & had become extra long.
Then the joke was on her because she's older than I am, wasn't wearing Depends and laughed so hard she peed on herself.
Happy Birthday to ALL us Capricorns!

As a part of my daily fluid intake, my Internist told me that as long as a drink was water based, I could probably count it as water. I had found that WalMart was selling the GV generic of CrystalLight and that I found it to be a great value and it was ZERO calories per serving.
As with everything else they sell under the GV brand, the packaging recently changed, but with this product, the CALORIE count changed too. It has gone up to 5 calories per 8 oz. serving. I contacted WalMart about this and here is their response.
"Thank you for your message.

I want you each to know that WalMart has added calories and I guess it's up to us to let them know we DO NOT NEED EXTRA Calories. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take a moment and let them know. Their contact info is included in the response email above.
Together, we can make a difference!

Choices make and shape who and what we are. Making the RIGHT choices, consistently and not just at home, have helped me greatly attain the success I have enjoyed thus far with Sparkpeople.
I love to eat out, but know that I cannot always have EVERYTHING I want and continue down the weight loss path at an acceptable pace. Sacrifices must be made. For example, I love BBQ. But when I go to eat it, I order the sauce on the side, Green Beans rather than Baked Beans, and eat 1/2 a slice of Garlic Toast instead of the 2 provided. Little Changes consistently add up to BIG results over the long haul. I use alternative sweetner in my Tea and NEVER waste calories on Sugar Sweetened Tea. Liquid calories are just a No brainer to me. I'd rather save my carloric intake on "REAL" food.
I have not always made the right choices and the scales & my measurements reflect that when I do not make good decisions. But overall, I am pleased with my results. Are you happy with the results you have attained during your time as a Spark Member?
The CHOICE is yours. CHOOSE what you will be.
