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.

These things I warmly wish for you: Someone to love, some work to do, A bit o' sun, a bit o' cheer, And a guardian angel always near. Irish Blessing

May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic. ~Adrienne Cook

For each petal on the emoticon
This brings a wish your way-
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
