    emoticon Carla, to Breaking 200. I see we are the exact same weight! I made it to Onederland last year in July for a 3 whole days! emoticon I've been trying so hard to get back on track but it's been a struggle. To many picnics, Birthday party's etc. Work starts up on Aug.15th. My short term goal is to get back on track & lose a few pounds before then. I added you emoticon Let's do this!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
