A setback is only a setup for a comeback.

I lost 112.50 lbs. to reach my goal about 6 years ago and have maintained ever since. Believe me, maintaining a weight loss is much tougher than losing it in the first place! I have lost & gained & lost and gained & lost over 100 lbs. several times.

This time is different. I am no longer going to give up even when I have a gain or two. I will stick to this journey for the rest of my life! There is just no other choice - giving up is just NOT AN OPTION!!!

Hi Judy! Happy 4th of July! We went to fireworks last night here in our town. It was a great show! Tonight we're going to Peoria to watch the fireworks over the River front. I'm loving our cooler temps this week. Yesterday I had my carpets cleaned so today I've got to put my house back together! Next we're painting the kitchen and laundry room. We're getting this house looking good! My flowers are beautiful this year as we've had so much rain! Have a great holiday and take care! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Huge FAN of sour things?! emoticon I enjoy a little tartness in some things but cannot claim to be a fan of sour foods. God bless you! emoticon Well, at least we know you'll get lots of Vitamin C and other good nutrients!
