You are so right about the self confidence that comes with staying thin. It has helped my self confidence as well. Plus there is that absence of negativity in your life. I am so happy that your maintenance is going well. Thanks for sharing your insightful thoughts with me.
Thank you for your understanding comment on my blog about disliking the fireworks. You know, it was after dark last night when I remembered to run to the grocery store. As I sat in the car, I watched bird after bird 'night flight' from the top of the building and surrounding trees every time one went off. Poor little things.

Poor dogs too, like you said, running away. I always have mine inside and windows closed on the 4 th.
Then there is tonight! Don't get me wrong. I am proud to be raised Southern..however these rednecks here (lol) ..don't seem to realize the celebration was LAST NIGHT. They will do it all over again tonight till they run out of firecrackers or beer, one.
