Jeannie, that's really nostalgic! Kris, your list is the sad truth of what's helped push some of us to be overweight before we knew it.
- no shopping on Sundays because...
- no malls! (and it was a day for the church and family)
- victory gardens in the backyard (I'm older than you guys.)
- riding your bike everywhere, walking everywhere or taking public transportation - kids didn't have cars in high school!
- jumping rope, hopscotch, stick ball, tag, hide 'n' seek - not video games
- to continue Jeannie's thought: clipping hedges with manuel clippers, edging with a manuel edger, using a hoe and weeding with hands: no chemicals or motorized yard tools
Ok. Now, pull yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again. We'll get back on track.
....and in Scotland we enjoyed our Mars Bars 'au naturale' rather than deep fried. Ah the good old days.

Jeannie....Kris...Lanie...how wonderful it was to come here and read these wee posts
Remember when you didn't have to worry about eating any of these tasty treats. Before you didn't have to watch everything you eat. A nice big piece of chocolate cake with tons of chocolate frosting with a big glass of milk sure brings back old memories of yesteryear. I guess we all can dream of somethings we used to enjoy eating before we were diabetic.
Ahhhhh, the good ole days. Too bad our kids will never know the joys of our youth. They would be better off I think.
