Hi Miss Magpie! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for "friending" me. (Back at ya!) I am sorry to hear your health is poor, especially having to do dialysis. I can't even imagine. It sounds like your determination is in the right place... if it makes you feel any better, the scale does not want to budge for me either. We can be turtles (slow, slow) together... Hope you have a GREAT day.
