Thank you for your thoughtful comment on my blog!

I too consider myself a successful maintainer, thanks to my love for healthy eating and exercise. But in the last 2 years my weight had an upward trend and I really had to pay attention to push it back where I wanted to.
I think part of my response was silly, like cutting off walnuts and cheese from my morning snack and eating only the apple - sparing 200 planned calories so that I can have more impulse eating was really counterproductive.
Thank you for your support!

Thank you for my poem!!! I love it!

Your beautiful accompanying sentiment brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so very much for that! I feel like anything else I could say right now would fall short of what I truly mean and feel. Thank you is what I can manage!

How can he not know? Tell him!

That is an awesome word and description!

New words that I use because I have either seen it on Spark or have made them up myself on Spark:

1) Nextly
2) Husbandperson
3) Now I can't recall more ... there are over a handful though!
