Hey you!! I don't know if you will get this or not. Think about you and thought I'd stop by to see how you are....how are you doing since your surgery? Hope you and your family are well. I'm still needing to get busy and put the ol' nose to the grindstone and start losing weight. My swallowing issue is rearing its ugly head again, so need to slim down if I need to have surgical intervention for it...send me a message if/when you have time! Are you on FB? Hope to talk with you soon! Mary

Hi Maria,

Oh my goodness - is it too early to say happy new year! I have missed you, I don't know how I missed your comment on my spark page. I am fine, just returned to work after almost four months of leave. At least taking the leave forced my bosses to get me help in the office, so I hope it will no longer be so stressful.

I spent the first two months of my leave just lazying around and doing the bare minimum exercise that I could get away with. I had not realized how tired I was. But in January I got back to being serious and I'm close to undoing all the damage I did.

Sorry about your laptop, were you able to get another one.

I pray that you and your loved ones are safe and secure under the wings of the Almighty. Have a wonderful weekend.

Lucy

So good to see you back active on SP. Sorry about your laptop.

I had actually come to SA in November for a conference - only knew about it 1 week before, so not much time to plan. Would have loved to see you, but there wasn't much time anyway.

We will have another conference in September, somehow around the 22nd (exact date not yet put) and this time I want to see a bit of the country as well.
The conference will either be in Joh'burg or in Capetown, but I definitely want to see both places. Maybe I can convince BF to come along and send him play golf during the conference.

Wishing you the best, enjoy your weekend

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in Feb The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it back but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!
click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!
