    Hi Lori,

    Okay so you and I may not win a Betty Crocker Bake-off any time soon, but at least we're trying, right?!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    thought I would stop by and say hi! How's the exercising going? I am trying to maintain also and I notice I don't have the drive to exercise like I used too when I had a goal to get to. I have people pushing me on though thank goodness. Hope you are doing well! emoticon

    thanks for the reply - you gave me a chuckle

    I know in the fellowship of NicA or any 12 step group, anonymity provides safe confidentiality and freedom but I am not used to a place like this being anything at all.

    However, I do respect your modesty or is the word temperance on your right to privacy without isolation. Good for you to honor what you need.

    Thanks for your comment on my page. I really don't think you were being harsh just realistic. This was my first cruise and I didn't know what to expect so I did try a lot of new things, like lobster with out the butter dip, just because I knew if I didn't try it there I would never buy it and try it myself.

    So I have chalked it up to a lesson learned and won't dwell on the weight gain because it was my first vacation alone with my husband in 20 years. The happiness and fun we had is what I want to hold on to.

    But I'm back on the wagon full force.

    Congrats on doing this! ! ! ! ! You Rock emoticon

    (That you hide your face for a website like this feels strange but hey, maybe you are in the secret service for all I know. It's a new one on me. If I hid my head, I wonder what my body would look like in a photo. Well, this is not the point of my writing to you.

    I want to know how old you are (I am 61) and how much you 'sacrificed'. I know we are not suppposed to use that word yet my long term situation has to bring up that 'feeling'.

    I live in Columbia and exercise and eat lots of healthy food. I know portion control but sometimes cannot count my calories or ignore my 'need' to snack. I try to eat corn flakes dry one at a time as one way to compromise this need. I am now doing a Zumba class 2x/week and a walk at the park and maybe a little hand weights if I'm stellar...

    Talk to me please. I know I can always do better, but what I've done has been the best I could do up until now.
