Just a quick word to let you know I'm not laid out in despair, wallering in self-pity over my weight issues! (I bet that's what ya'll thought I was doing, huh? Go on...you can admit it...it sounds like something I would do. lol) But alas, that's not the case. I woke up in the middle of the night a couple of days ago with the first little ticklings in my throat and, by morning, I was full into some kind of cold or flu. Today's the first day I've been out of bed and up the stairs since Wednesday night. I've read all of your comments regarding my post of the other day and want to thank you so much for your support. Now if I could just get you all to show up at my house and force me into that "power walking" schedule I so desperately need. lol In the meantime, I'm headed to the shower and then probably back to bed for a bit. I'd really like this cold to leave soon so I can see clearly enough to read all of your blogs (my head feels like it's wrapped in wool, right now). Hope everyone is doing well and look forward to catching up soon!
