Last summer, a forty pound weight loss seemed like an unobtainable dream.  Today it’s a happy reality.  My daughter deserves a lot of the credit.  She spent  countless hours re-engineering our favorite recipes to remove unhealthy ingredients and reduce calories, yet maintain the tastes we love.  I found that it’s a lot easier to lose weight, when someone else prepares the meals and  serves a portion controlled plate.

   Let Jay Turser guitars play.

  No beating rain, just beating drum,

  Instead of soaked and cold and numb.  (127)
