    I am so glad that you are a Pixie. You probably don't remember, but you Sparked mail late 2008 or early 2009...I heard the cry for help in your letter then. You were asking my advice on what to be successful on this weight loss journey. I don't know why we lost touch but we did. But we get a second chance to rectify that this round of BLC!

    I'm not a ST person either. emoticon Maybe we can challenge each other to pick up hand weights while watching TV and do some biceps curls at least. Welcome to the Pixies!
