    Hello My Sweet Friend!
    We have a lot of challenges right now but I am staying true to a healthy diet and getting some exercise in daily. It really does help!! i am glad that you are doing better and finding what works for you! I just purchased your wonderful Starstone Trilogy books and your Wish for Marcus book for my Kindle Fire to us in my homeschool for my children! What I gift you have that you have given to me to share with my family!! I miss you friend, but understand!
    Hugs to you!! Cathy

    Man when you said you wouldn't be on Spark very much....you meant it!! emoticon

    Sure hope you are doing well, Helen. Honestly, other than logging in my foods or adding pictures/text to my Page, I'm not on here much, myself.

    I'm trying my hand at placing all my focus on building muscle, instead of just losing fat. Trust me..it's not an easy, mental task, I gotta tell ya!! emoticon Trying to eat MORE, yet not get fat in the process, is tough! I'm doing great, I must say...but, I do have my weaker *mental* days, where I battle feeling like I'm getting *fat*..even though my pictures are telling the true story.

    But, when you are used to your clothes fitting a certain way..then they get snug across your arms, shoulders, back, and thighs..it can tug at your head, let me tell ya! LOL

    Anyway, hope to hear from you, soon. Even if it's just a quick pop in and out, to say you're safe and sound.
