Cariola

I am working on weight loss and general health improvement. I want to alleviate my osteoarthritis and high blood pressure, lower my cholesterol count and risk of a cancer recurrence, sleep better, reduce stress, be able to buy clothes that fit--just to be healthier and more confident all around.

JUST DO IT!
PLAN AHEAD!
NO MORE EXCUSES!
STOP, THINK, TALK TO YOURSELF.

Thanks for the pretty flower :) No, I don't have cats (but there are several nearby and I often cat-sit for a beautiful fella when my friends have to go away)

May your feet never sweat,
your neighbor give you ne're a treat.
When flowers bloom, I hope you'll not sneeze,
and may you always have someone to sqeeze!

May good luck be your friend
In whatever you do
And may trouble be always
A stranger to you.
