Hi Linda, I'm a cloverleaf too. Just turned 70 in August and would be glad to be a buddy with you. I need to get out there and walk, not put all the housework first then fizzle out on myself. Your dogs are so cute. Shirley

Hi emoticon

I'm doing the fall challenge because I want to lose 5% for our upcoming trips. I want to feel better and fit nicely into the smaller sizes in my closet. My number one reason for eating better and exercising is always to become healthier. My newest reason is to be a healthier to our grandchildren, the first one being due in March.


PS - I added you as a SparkFriend. emoticon
