Hello, crew.
Hope you are doing well. Love to hear from you now and then. Keep those cards and letters coming. I think I'm going to be visiting again regularly. I fell off the 'losing' and it's time to work it again.
Down 140 pounds from my high weight. Still incredibly grateful to the tracker for helping me to learn to actually 'read' what my body needs again. Obesity + western Dr. crap = yo yo stupidity about hearing my needs. I'm just eating healthy, doing what I can when I can.
Still have arthritis. Still have cancer. Was sick enough that I could hardly move most days for a while- then got some help and am back to the glorious - oh, I may have some time left in this body! Enjoy!
Still have 50-60 I could lose. Went up a tad, and went back down. Still have that lurking fear of being under 200, like a bad fairy is going to pounce and make me forget everything I learned.That silly meme. I don't 'care' on one level- I'm built for comfort, not for speed. Love my body, love life.
Walk on!

    Hi. This is Tanner (Bonnie). I live in Marquette. I know where Gogebic County is as my ex-sister-in-law lived in Ironwood. It is sure hot today, but I am not complaining! Bonnie

    Thanks for the message! And WOW! Way to go on your progress! That is amazing... my mom keeps asking what I am doing, I am one of the lucky ones that gained from eating way too much and almost all fast food! So cutting the fast food (which like you said is hard because of taking care of everyone else and helping everyone) has been all I really needed to do, I figure the added work out and then just adding slowly to it will help me not platue... anyway beautiful view from you new home (or soon to be new home) and great job losing all that weigh... keep it up!!!
