I've got a new artificial tooth now that feels just like the old "real" one and I'm back to enjoying the fresh fruits and vegetables I hesitated to eat when I had a 'hole' in my mouth. I just got back from a women's retreat with my church and was so pleased when I got home to find I haven't gained an ounce, even though I was eating at restaurants the whole weekend and had lots of tempting snacks set before me between meals. I remembered all I've learned on Sparkpeople.
I made myself little snackpacks of nuts and dried cranberries in case of a "sinking feeling" and shared them with companions when we found ourselves stuck on the interstate coming home.
I also used my "free time" on Saturday afternoon to go on a short hike with three companions to the Smoky Mountains. It was a beautiful day and I'm sure I used more calories that way than if I'd stayed in the motel and taken a nap. All in all it was a wonderful, refreshing, inspiring weekend and I'm very grateful I had the opportunity to go.
