Cariola

I am working on weight loss and general health improvement. I want to alleviate my osteoarthritis and high blood pressure, lower my cholesterol count and risk of a cancer recurrence, sleep better, reduce stress, be able to buy clothes that fit--just to be healthier and more confident all around.

JUST DO IT!
PLAN AHEAD!
NO MORE EXCUSES!
STOP, THINK, TALK TO YOURSELF.

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations, Beautiful!

I just wanted to say Hi. Since we are in the same lodge, I thought we should be friends.
