Finally, on Jan 1, 2009 I decided that I just didn't want to "carry it" anymore, not for 13.1 miles, not up and down stairs, nowhere.

As I see so many of my friends quitting and then "starting over" it finally occurred to me that if we would just "slow down" when we get beat down we would be way better off.

Thank you for stopping by to read and comment.
Hugs, Eve emoticon

I was sort of the opposite - I always ate right about the same amount and never really had to worry much about portions, though I did increase the amount of fresh produce that I ate. I also only drank water - but that's what I love and have always loved since infancy, so I'll just keep drinking it. Not at all boring! :D
