I noticed we are starting at about the same weight and have some things in common. I even live in Portland(but Oregon) :o)
I wish you luck with your kids, as I have 4 myself(three girls and a boy). I'm fairly new to this thing and really trying to get the most use out of it. I really love how it's helped so far and love the accountability and words of encouragement people have given me.
I wish you well! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for validating my feelings. I really did make a scene. Couldn't help it, wouldn't have done it if I have a choice. Thanks, too, for commenting on my blog. It really was like receiving a hug, and I needed that very badly today.. So, thanks.

Thanks for the support Zanypainter! I love your comment about your 'free' time in your intro. Great looking family portrait, too.

Looks like you've done well losing seven pounds good for you. How do you do it while being on a college campus?

Hmmmm...just noticed the "no profile image" image for me on this page - damn I don't look to bad, maybe I'll just stick with that and call it good. Lynda
