Hi, I'm happy to meet you. Whatever your challenge please know I'm out here cheering you on. "It doesn't have to be easy; just possible."

I'm learning how to take good care of myself daily (not just for a day or two but setting myself up for the rest of my life). In the past I would let "the urgent" rule the day - not any more. I'm finding that in planning ahead I'm getting more accomplished in all areas of life and loving it!

Thanks my dear friend. How nice of you to stop by and note my good blood test results. Always cause for celebration. I hope you are doing well. You are often in my thoughts and I send you positive "grab the gusto in life" vibes.
I can't complain. I am on my last twenty and going pretty strong. It's all about what is important to you and living well is my top priority.

Love the "can plan" post and the "yes I can" one too. You are closer to your goal but it is our future steady maintenance that will define us. I'm very impressed with your progress inside and out. Keep up the good work, stay happy and express yourself with laughter daily. emoticon

Okay so I see you've gone back to nature. That's a good place to be. My neighbors are too close so I understand what you mean. We do have wild turkey and that's a hoot and clearly a few of my neighbors qualify as being rather wild. Well, your air is likely cleaner too. breath deeply for me. Have fun, Holly

Funny cartoon about giving up dieting. I have too. What I am doing now is just eating right and getting fit while dumping poundage. Be good and never stop reinventing yourself. We are works in progress. Love who you are and look for much happiness to emerge. emoticon

Hope your hormones are quieting down.

Well, I am older than you and I look under a lot of rocks to find these gems. Thanks, you seem to be the only one alive most days on the wall or at least with a such good sense of humor. Humor is everything. So appreciate you appreciating my efforts to contribute too. Have fun celebrating life! -Holly

PS Wish you lived closer. Any change of growing hazelnuts here? emoticon
