2015 was shadowed by sadness at the loss of Mama and I suspect there will be the pinch of that loss for the rest of my life. That is not to say my heart isn't ready to love joyously. It is!

2016 is starting with a different flavor from years past. I am not smack at goal - but I'm within 5 lbs of it. Better - I have the confidence that I will be at goal a whole lot more often than not this year. There's a calm certainty about it that surprises even me, but it's a delightful ...

How I will do this I'm not sure - but I bet it'll be revealed to us all in the blogs. And I'm sure TheBrains will have a lot to say about things too.

It's a funny thing the lessons we pick up from our parents that stay with us. Oftentimes, I hear them in my head when I speak, and I know from which parent it comes.

Glad that your lessons were timely and avoided major arguments in your house with your hubby. Money matters, as we all know so well, are issues that can crumble relationships. Good that you have a positive spin on how it should be managed.

Stay toasty! It's positively freezing here in NY. And here I thought we were about to get away with a warm winter. So, to the layers and then to the gym.

Have a warm Tuesday!

"Start somewhere, today. Don't put it off.
You can do something, no matter how 'small' you think it is in terms of your long term goal.
Every step you take is one you'll be thankful for when you get there.
Remember; You're lapping everyone who's still on the couch."

PS did I tell you about Watermellen,s review of SPT blogs where she talks about other parts of the brain. I thought the brains might find some cousins in there!

A new couch for Valentine's Day, love it! Channel me and add a comfy new red throw or pillow, and you are set. Love how you think, Bess! You are one heck of a woman, sooOooooOoo happy I found you. All the best in 2016, good beginnings can lead to the happiest endings...(at least that is what my team told our reluctant writers!)
