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!

    Hey there darlin'!

    I am in a super-high-stress period, so my body is holding on to everything. :-) But I haven't forgotten my commitments to myself and so I am still working on good habits so that *someday* they will pay off again!

    On a happier note, I may be living a LOT closer to you soon. Shhh, not official yet.

    Hey, *just* noticed your comment about the pretty flowery, colourful tools! Yeah, a friend of mine back in California got a toolkit like that one time - she does her own car tune-ups, so this was a gag gift, but she totally LOVES it!

    I'm still on the hunt for good girlie dumbells! :)

    Hope you're having fun in the spring - the Bay area is beautiful this time of year!

    It's GREAT to see you back online - I've been wondering how you've been - don't think I've seen you around much since last summer!
