Wrote the title of this posting and realized... wait! NOT upward in pounds but a general call to charge forth to the Land of Good Health.
This is a place that I have actual dreams about. Where I go through my days enjoying life, not thinking about food every second of every day. Where fresh fruits and veggies abound, free for the taking. Where tomatoes don't cause an acidic reaction in my stomach. Where bushes are so laden with berries that they need propping up. Where chickens provide large eggs that don't get need cleaning (if you get my drift). Where exercise and body toning happens through the natural course of the day. Where the dishes are mysteriously cleaned by willing and non-complaining family members. Where shorts don't fit a child in each leg. Where the only kind of blood pressure medication comes in the package that nature provides.
Is this a fantasy, or is this at all possible?
I'll let you know!
Meanwhile, my breakfast apple awaits!
