     I now believe that there is nothing wrong with my metabolism. I've just been eating way too much for the past several years and that is why my weight has crept up very slowly. Turns out, if I just cut my consumption back, my weight will burn off. That doesn't mean I'm going back to the fattening stuff though. I still intend to eat healthy; healthy and less — less often and less volume.

     A good friend called me tonight and offered me some real encouragement and good advice. He said my "To Do" list was too long and too comprehensive. He said I was only setting myself up for failure and disappointment. He told me to pick one thing and get it done. And, I did. Thanks, Harry.
     I am filled with anticipation as Liz will be arriving in El Paso tomorrow evening. Friday we will be joining her brother Lee for his regular 2 mile mall walk and then have lunch together at a favorite Mexican Food haunt. I have only eaten out once since I've been here and that was Landry's. I got a hankerin' last night for Chico's Tacos as they were featured on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate - with my hands. And the featured item on their menu, the Chico Taco Plate. Normally people order six at a time.

     My overall grade for today: A

     How did you do?
