Hello


Are you on your own in this group of Low FODMAP diet ?

I just joined. I see allot of people in year 2014 and not to the present 2015.

I just joined but also am an older member on Sparks. I am not new to Sparks.

I did email the leader of the group. I am aware it is weekend.

So between you and her. I may get an answer back. See Face books has a full bloomed self group . Yet wanted to try you people first. More personal.

I ended up walking outside even though it was cold. I walked outside every day this week! I think I'm getting a walking habit because I feel so good when I get back. emoticon

How have you been doing? I haven't been on sparks as much lately, and trying to catch up with my friends. I hope your Thanksgiving was good. Let me know if anything is new in your neck of the woods. emoticon
