Here's a news article with a headline that caught my attention.

Study: Eating when not hungry bad for health - UPI.com

Who would have thought?

That "headline" really caught my eye!! Seems like common knowledge.

Yes, we have more time to eat, but personally, I do not eat more.

I know I am eating less now. I've cut back on cooking. Put together very simple meals. I could live on cereal, eggs and toast.

Having extra time for shopping is a big plus for me. When I was working, I would just grab whatever was on my list at the first store I visited. Now I visit multiple stores to see who has the best produce and also the best deals in the non-produce sections. I know it's not ideal for everyone but I find it fun, so long as I'm not pressed for time.

All of this just plum wears me out!

Sure, we eat much better now...we grow most of our veggies and raise our own poultry for eggs and meat. I spend most of the summer lazin' out in a boat on the lake, which fills the freezer with a hundred pounds of fish. And this year, we're upping the bird count to 800. If that's not bad enough, we'll be raising 6 little piggies for the first time! Work, I tell ya, there's no end to the hard work around this place...it's a wonder I can keep an ounce on my poor ragged frame....
