What a great weekend! My parents (pictured here at the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska) drove into town on Saturday afternoon. We met at Denny's for lunch. My mom said that as soon as I got out of the car, she could tell I'd lost weight. Over lunch, she and my dad raised their eyebrows as I managed to put away about half of an egg.
"Is that really all you're hungry for?" she said.
I nodded. In fact, I'd eaten about a bite too much and was fighting that terrible too-full feeling.
"You don't feel deprived? You used to love the desserts in here...?"
"I don't feel deprived one bit," I said, and meant it.
