There is no such thing as a mess up if you just recommit and start with renewed determination. Congratulations on your weight loss so far and good luck on achieving your goals! emoticon

    Great job on losing 20 lbs. Keep up the good work. You can do it.

    Just wanted to stop by your page and tell you thank you for reading and commenting on my 'Parable' blog. It warmed my heart.

    I am busier than a cranberry peddler at Christmas. I am in the process of moving to another state. I hope the state of mind will improve when I get there. Moving is so stressful. But hey, God is so good and even though it is hard He is strengthening me to do it. We are moving next Thursday.

    Praying for you that all will go well and you can have the operation. I had a hernia operation about two years ago. No problems what so ever for which I am grateful.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    We can always choose to perceive things differently.
    You can focus on what's wrong in your life,
    or you can focus on what's right.
