    Hi folks,

    Here's a blog by Dr. Klapper, contributor to the Fuhrman website. Pretty powerful stuff. Makes me think I won't binge (as badly) tonight, at a party my wife and I will attend.

    My wife and I sometimes make dates, to break the diet. If I'm tempted some other time, I say to myself, wait to break the diet with my better half.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    At my granddaughter's second birthday party yesterday I passed up the icecream cake layered with icecream sanwiches, fudge, chocolate candy sprinkles, chocolate cake and whipped cream. Easy. But I dug into the chips and doritos. I have to admit the ugly truth about myself. I'm a salt slut. Completely lost when salt and fat are in the same room together. The devil made me do it.

    How come every time I want to reply I have to log in. It took me a couple of days to figure out how to use a phony e mail address. a new screen name, and a fake birthday before I could re register because I forgot how I registered before. When I tried to re register using some of the same information as the last time I registered web md rejected me. It is annoying to have to log in every time.

    I pigged out yesterday too. Lots of peanuts watching a movie with my wife. At least they were un-salted

    Hi Dolores,

    Hi UFat,

    LOL ROFL :-)

    At least you chose well.

    I still can't break the diet in moderation. Pretty pathetic.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
