And speaking of catching up, these little goslings aren’t so little anymore. They’ve really grown since I first discovered them residing in our neighborhood pond. There were four goslings originally and there are still four I’m happy to say, but they had migrated from one pond to another about a mile away. I was surprised they had traveled this far since they don’t have wings to fly yet. I would have loved to have seen them waddling down paved streets and through manicured yards to reach their destination. What a sight that would have been!
These little guys really love to eat. Speaking of that, so do I, eat that is. A while back, I was telling you about our household doing the South Beach diet. Well, I hate to admit defeat, but our daughter won the contest of losing the biggest percentage of weight after the first month. That’s okay since she got a well-deserved day off all to herself without the babies.
Although, we’re still watching what we eat, we’re not strict about sticking to the South Beach diet. We rarely eat breads any more and we’re exercising everyday.
Honestly, what works best for me is to count my calories. Eat less calories than I burn. Did you know that a pound is roughly 3500 calories? So, if you eat 500 calories less a day than you burn, you should lose about a pound a week. Theoretically, of course. Which means, in theory, if you eat a dozen HOT ones from Krispy Kreme, you have to work out at the gym from dusk to dawn to burn them off. J
