    WOW Busy Bust Lady, I'm retired and don't have time to do half of what you do. I also have the problem with not being hungry. Funny thing is I never had that problem before, just since I have been on Sparks. Maybe it has something to do with the body getting the right kind of nourishment or maybe it's just in the mind.
    Thank you for help all us Newbies thought this. emoticon

    You definitely are a busy lady!!! I don't know how you get 12-15 fruits and veggies in a day. I feel like I've been successful when I reach 9 or 10! Looking forward to another great round with everyone!
