Hi Mz. Erika,

I understand that, not working after typing out a long msg and then meaning to retry...and life happens and ya forget, I know I've done that very thing...lol.

Eye Surgery??! You ok missy?

Yes, me too, weekends are definitely my downfall, really need to develop a plan, so that I'm actually making progress, instead of stalling, cause of being good during the week and then wiping out all my progress on the weekend. I LOL..when I saw that bloated pic, so funny, but yes that is how I felt. And yes me too, when I'm back its always carbs.

I have to get back to work hun, but wanted to let you know I was thinkin about you, and that I'm not MIA ;) ((HUGS))

Thank you My Cheerleader!! emoticon

Yes, I'm so excited getting close to that first milestone :)) And I've sure learned over the years, do not let slip ups defeat you, it will only defeat you if you let it!

I'm back to working out and feel great about it! Feels good to my body too :) I've missed you too hun. How are you doin missy? How is exercise and weight loss coming long for you?

And AMEN, we are going to see this through together!!

Here's to a healthy long WEEKEND with the strength to make wise food and exercise choices!!! emoticon

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I'm going to spend the day with my 3 nephews, and later Saturday, my good friend is having a house party, beach themed, I'm excited!!

Have a great holiday weekend!!
