    Hello Susie,

    I was so glad to hear from you. It has been a long time but I understand that with life, people just don't have a much time to be on the computer and on this website as much anymore.

    It is a blessing from God to be able to travel to other countries. I have never thought of going to Alaska but I definitely have a desire to go to Italy. I plan to do some traveling in the States and out of the country in the very very near future.

    I'm glad to hear in your travels that you were able to lose some weight. I'm still on this healthy lifestyle journey. I can't tell you how many times that I've gotten off but quitting is not an option so I will continue until I get it right. I have not drank a diet soda since May 17th. I have actually had a craving for one for the past two days now but I'm determined to not go back to them. I do drink plenty of water daily but I try to find something else that I can drink that is healthy because I like to have choices which will help me to not go back to those diet sodas.

    Take care,
