Hi Pat. Thanks for the kudos. I'm really feeling great and I credit logging in everyday to track my food and participate in forums. I'm glad to see you getting back into it . I enjoy viewing your posts and want you to know that I and the others are here for you. Don't know if you read about my upcoming hike, but I have a 15 miler coming up the 25th of this month. It's on a trail that "Outside Magazine" rates has one of the top 50 hikes in America. It'll be with 14 other hikers and I know none of them. Can't wait to share hiking stories. We'll hike in, camp overnight, and hike back out the next day! I 'm trying to hike at least one trail a month this year and so far, so good. I attribute some of that to my weight loss has well. Didn't mean to take up so much of your space here. I hope all is going well and again, glad your back. You're missed!
