I am on a journey to reclaim my health and vitality. I have been a member for almost two years. In that time I have gained and lost the same few pound plus some. I am so tired of it! I didn't follow the program. Now I am ready to change my whole life. I want to be fit and vital in the second half of my life. I recently had the blessing of receiving a new knee. I can now move again. I can't wait to get out there and walk! This experience made me realize how precious it is to be self sufficient and to have the blessing of being able to move my body, I am excited to embark on this journey!

    Thanks for the info about the tofu cake recipie. It sounds delish! I tried looking at Christmas dessert recipies but they are all cookies and I don't like cookies. Ugh! So I think I'm going to try your idea! Thanks!
