nanada's place - come on in - i'll put the coffee on.

a place i can truly feel good about myself in, knowing i am not alone any longer in my weight loss journey.

my firm belief: i may grow older, but i'll NEVER grow up!

for the first time in a very long time, i'm beginning to feel good about myself..i AM going to succeed..it is taking a long time, but i know i'm gonna make it to the "finish line".

GOD, please grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change, courage to change the things i can, and wisdom to know the difference. living each day one at a time, enjoying each moment one at a time, and accepting hardship as a pathway to peace. taking as Jesus did this sinful world as it is, not as i would have it. trusting that You will make all things right if i surrender to Your will. so that i may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next...Amen.

Oh, so good to hear from you!
I will pray for you. I have not made it below 200 yet, but hopeful!
I had to start eating meat again, well, chicken, because my tongue would break out in sores. Found out is was the lack of amino acids that you find in meats. I guess some people have to have it, after all. I still have meatless days.

Congratulations on the ggrandbaby! That is good news.

We are doing well, ups and downs, but mostly ups!
Take care.
Linda
