I have always been a good eater.

Unless I’m sick, I have a good appetite, but it takes only eating a little for to satisfy me.

As I got older and less active my appetite decreased.

I was satisfied after eating less food

While we are watching TV (CNN news before going to bed) my helper offers me some food which I refuse (overeating makes me nauseous and sometimes I feel like throwing up).

She is well meaning, I thank her and refuse it, graciously thanking her.

As we grow older and less active we eat less. 

We sleep more.

It’s normal.


It’s almost 7:15 p.m. Almost my bedtime.

I’m going to watch CNN on TV and hit the sack … “good night.”
