Not Deprived

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      14 comments

I've been reading some great blogs about Christmas eating, abundance, and feelings of deprivation. It is true that when there are many foods to choose it is easy to take too much. Yesterday I ate within my calorie range. I enjoyed my food immens... Read more
