Hi Dani,
Actually I don't feel hungrier.
Probably because I eat healthier when I'm trying to shed the fat.
I don't count calories, just eliminate the bad and eat as much of the good as I want.
I need to keep these better habits during the rest of my life.
It is too easy for me to fall back to my old bad habits.
I'm an old dog trying to learn some new tricks.

I really need to keep adding more veggies into my diet.
Now I'm going to buy some carrots and make 1/2 gallon of juice for tonight.
Carrots, apples and beets.

Cooked a big pot of beans, lentils and veggies today.
I used fresh carrot and beet juice instead of water, made a big difference, much better.

Hey Robert.

Glad to be the topic of occasional conversation for you Portlanders :)
I wish I had more time in Portland, someday, maybe I can move there.
For sure, I'll spend more time there in the summer 2009.
You young guys can show me how it's done in the gym.

My training has been very sporadic.
I keep using the cold and snow as an excuse.
It's getting warmer so I won't be able to use that for much longer.
The temp here was almost 50 today, felt like spring.

See you this summer.
