well, something good has come out of me dog sitting. I've been living at this house alone for a couple days now, and I've lost about 4 pounds.  The thing that's still hard to grasp, is I've been eating a ton, yet, I'm loosing.  I wish it was easier to eat as much as I am supposed to.  Well I guess I'll see how it goes next week when I am here from Saturday until Friday.  A whole week of this and I might drop a few more pounds.
