Some days I don't have a positive attitude about working out. On those days I work out without a chipper attitude.

I feel way thinner than I look, I'm shocked when I see pictures of myself.

I'm seeking:
* HEALTH* Longevity* Wellbeing* Confidence* Sex Appeal

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.

emoticon Please, give yourself grace. You did it once, you can do it again. I believe in you!

On one stretch I lost almost 30 lbs. It took six long months to do that. Then I was put on some medication, plus ended up with diverticuloses. I put 20+ of those pounds back on in a month.

I was heartbroken and gave up for quite awhile. You know what? I came back to SP and got the support I needed, and love, too. Slow and steady I go, like a little emoticon . I still have about 25 lbs to go.

I'm here whenever you need a shoulder, emoticon or a emoticon . You can do this.

Hope your vacation goes well and you come back refreshed and raring to go. -Bri

Happy Birthday my friend.
Sorry I missed it.
Been busy volunteering and running errands.
Monday I start training as a book seller at the college.
It will be for two months. But if they like me I will stay on.
Hope that you have a good day!
Your friend in Fitness, Holly emoticon

Thanks so much for dropping by to comment on my blog!

There's nothing at all wrong with milk and cereal for dinner - we've done that many times (especially when we've been out wandering the back-country all day). You're welcome to drop by any time to help play with some other dinner foods!

Hope you have a wonderful week!
