Thanks for your comment on my blog. Believe me, I never set out to be either strong or determined - if I am those things, it's because of the sink-or-swim stuff, and what those experiences allow you to pick up along the way.
Thanks for stopping by my blog on non-scale victories. I appreciate the support and positive feedback. Also, I want you to know that, by setting a good example, you are one of the people that really helped me make the changes in my thinking that is going to help me keep the weight off this time. I have seen you go through some ups and downs with maintenance...but you didn't give up, even when you weren't "feeling it." Thank you for being you!
Thanks for commenting on my blog, "One family forever affected by the Boston Marathon bomb". I remember going to bed on Monday night thinking that everyone I knew was safe. Several friends and family members were there, or close, check in on everyone. And then I realized the connection Tuesday morning. It's just heartbreaking.
