You may be over your friend quota but I consider myself lucky you squeezed me in too. You are a wonderful motivator and you look great. Would love to know your first name unless it is a secret. Wow 85 pounds, that's spectacular!
Your new friend, Holly emoticon
PS When I make this final run (25 more pounds of jiggling Jello) I will joint you in never going back to being heavy again. emoticon
