Fat Granny is back for a day.
Since last writing I have lost 14 pounds!
I walk a mile a day for my heart!
I eat fresh veggies and fruits…mostly organic. Have lowered my cholesterol by 20 points.
I eat whole grain and not whole wheat.
I make my own Oat Bran Muffins and here is my version…moist and yummy, especially with crème cheese.
