I ate at a restaurant and I'm sure some of these numbers are a bit low. <BR> especially carbs, but it was only a 3 cup salad with the meat and cheese but it had more vegetables that usual in a restaurant. So I picked an arby's salad and added in the meat, cheese and onions since they are usually the highest carb vegetable in salad (I don't eat the tomatoes.) <BR> <BR> weight 188.0 <BR> cal...

I told DH exactly how I felt about his lies, and stealing. <BR> Of course you would say it only helped me because he doesn't remember. but something clicked and he has been much less agitated. <BR> <BR> the bank also finally admitted their mistake and now we are waiting for the paperwork to close. <BR> that will be great. I also think the price talk we have about my house will mean that we are not moving. But I now have a light at the end of the tunnel a...

The falls trail was 8 miles long. Fortunately for me the upper gorge trail was on a little more than 4 even going all the way to the falls!. But hiking down was a chore, lots of rocks to climb over. I fell once, my hip, thigh an foot that I landed on are still hu...
