WOW! It's GREAT to have your beautiful self among us once again...I always felt your spirit. I made that tofu loaf -- AWESOME! And yes, what's the FAT story...can it possibly be that much? Actually tofu itself is rather high fat, but still....

CONGRATULATIONS on your new status as grandma. I think that one deserves a blog...and some photos!!!

Much love,
Maha

Hey Val! Great to hear from you! From your status, I read that you're a grandma! Congratulations! How wonderful!

I'm still pretty much the only leader managing the team, but I don't mind. I don't always feel I have the time to be as active as I'd like, but I check in every day and post in a couple threads. There's no way I'm as creative or as insightful as Kendra, so the threads don't change much, but I try. Actually, we've gained several new members in the last week or so, and it's keeping the threads moving pretty well. Not much on the chapter discussion threads, but the challenge threads and the general discussion threads are more active than they've been in a while.

I'm so glad to hear everything is going well with you health and fitness-wise. So often when people disappear for a while, they come back and write about having to start over. I'm just glad to hear you're on track, and that you're taking care of yourself.

Keep in touch,
Karen
