Wow - Thanks to everyone who congratulated me on this anniversary and sent me goodies. It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years. It took me over a year to lose 50 pounds. But, the more consistent I am with tracking my intake, the more consistent my weight becomes. Thanks again everyone - this is a great team!
