Despite my self-discipline in diet, I have never before enjoyed food as much as I do now. Over recent years I have perfected my recipes so that the meals I prepare for myself are as delicious as I can imagine. The only food I miss is ice cream sundaes with an abundance of chocolate sauce, nuts, and whipped cream. Several times a year, I allow myself a sundae but eat nothing else at that meal. That results in a slight increase in weight, usually gone within a day.
I count myself as more than fortunate. Even though as I age, I find that I am not as sure on my feet as I was as a youth, I feel like I am health incarnate, and I am regularly assumed to be much younger than I am. Who could ask for more?
