2 Days until 2009

Today is our anniversary. 16 years. I presume we will be toasting another year of good times and togetherness tonight. We have had our share of fights and ups and downs. But we can honestly say that we do love and respect each other. Happy Anniversary Sweetheart.

I got on the scale this morning and since I didn't last week I was sure I had gained a pound or two. To my surprise I am down another 2 pounds. It has to be the gym workouts reving my metabolism. And I did toss out those leftover cookies and fudge. It's a good thing I did that. I kept the bag of cut up veggies that I dipped in ranch dressing dip. When I want a snack I have been grabbing a slice of zucchini or celery.

I am trying to think of something I hope to achieve in the coming year. Something that will help others. Maybe I will do some volunteer work in town. I think I will look into this and see if I can be a benefit to somebody. I feel fortunate that I have my health so maybe I could help an older person who is in need of help. I helped my mother in her declining years and I know how grateful elders are to have extra help around the house or just a ride to the doctor or the market. I will give this some more thought in the next couple of days.

That sounds like a very worthwhile thing to do. It always makes us feel good to help someone else too.

Good job on the weight loss. I'm scared to get on the scale. Maybe Thursday...lol. I know I appreciate any help I get from neighbors and family. That sounds like a great idea. Happy New Year.
Hugs, Joyce

Congrats with the weightloss and especially with going to the gym. I think exercising is the key.

Congratulations on losing two pounds during this very tempting time of year. I don't think I can say the same thing!

Happy Anniversary and Happy New Year!
