You are so right -- and thats pretty much realistic (the 30 pounds). I don't take time out for myself and working 12 hr days - sometimes 7 days a week takes its toll. Lot of fast food - to tired to come home and cook, etc. all excuses I guess. I have gotten wonderful responsed from you on this board (I expected no less....lol) and do appreciate each and every one of you. Kelly - I have NOT forgotten you - just need to find the time to sit and write you a lengthy letter back. Nancy B - I get no support from my family (NONE) so maybe we can do an internet support..lol. I'm game if you are.
