Hi ERNA, Thanks for the warm response and the words of encouragement. For the past few years I've gradually withdrawn from friends and socializing, except for family. I'm really trying to reach outside of myself again and I find that it's not easy. I'm sure the withdrawal is all tied in with the weight issues. It occurred to me, as I was reading your message this morning, that SparkPeople messages and responses may be a way for me to begin to "return." Thanks again, and may you have a fantastic day.
