The will of God will not take you where the Grace of God cannot protect you.

Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

Give me the grace to see a joke,

To get some humor out of life,

And pass it on to other folk!

Thanks Margie for welcoming new members of the team. Thanks also for giving us YOUR STORY. Congratulations on your weight loss, even though you've been laid up due to your fall.

I have been noticing that every day we have a couple of newcomers to this team, and I wanted to give a proper hello to each of them. I have been remiss in responding to individual posts of introduction. So sorry. Perhaps this note can be my way of making up for it.

Welcome!

This is a fantastically splendiforous team. You'll love it here. Make it your home. Wander around the posts and get to know the others. Slow Losers, all of us. And I'm so glad.

It took me 5 months to lose 21 lbs. but I am one lb. away from my goal weight. And that comes despite my falling down a half flight of stairs in June and being confined to my recliner the past 3 months!

I needed to lose these 22 lbs. before my weight got away from me AGAIN. I have been way up there in the upper 200s before and I didn't want to wind up there again. So, miraculously, I started noticing the numbers on the scale early enough to do something about it this time. And this team has been a great help.

Sit a spell and make yourself at home, and...again...welcome

Margie
