*Happiest of Birthdays to Michael H., Chris V., Betty S. and Maureen R.!!!

*Happy 44th Anniversary to Susan and Peter G.!

*CURB YOUR CRAVINGS...
-If you feel as if you are always hungry, re-examine those hunger pangs. Are you hungry or just experiencing a desire to eat? Often times boredom or thirst cause you to think you want food. Next time you feel the desire to eat (unless it is around the time you normally would have a meal), have a large glass of water or seltzer with lemon and wait 10 minutes. During those 10 minutes, engage your mind on something other than food. If your stomach still feels empty, then you are truly hungry.
-Don't deny yourself your favorite foods. Learn how to indulge in a healthy manner. Buy portion-control treats. For example, if you love cookies, buy a package of bite-sized cookies. Take 2, put them on a plate and enjoy. You must exercise self-control, however.

*Speaking of desserts...
