Remarks and Statements

Yough Pioneer Tours

I find that I want to eat only very small portions. The only thing that has been difficult is getting used to my new appetite. I've been throwing out a lot of my food because I physically feel like I cannot eat that much, and if I do eat too much then I don't feel so good.

However, I'm learning to keep all my meals small and frequent (just like I should have been doing all along!).
