This is a wonderful achievement! I hope you had a great day celebrating. Sorry I’m a bit late but I’ve brought a party.

You deserved a big celebration and I wish this wasn’t late arriving but I wish you the the best as you keep moving forward with your quit. Thanks for being such a great friend and quit buddy. I’m sorry I was absent quite a bit lately but hope to change that. I sent you a pm before, did you get it? I’m asking because I didn’t get a answer back. If you’re able to see my pm’s let me know and I’ll try to explain through there what was going on. I’d rather not post it here though as it’s personal. Okay, let me know. In the meantime, you’re really doing great with this. This is not only a amazing accomplishment under normal circumstances but under the recent state of things it is extraordinarily amazing and a testament to you and your resolve. You and Suzy and all of those who have quit and held on through these difficult times are such a inspiration to anyone starting out and those further ahead who know and recall what those months were like under so-called normal conditions. You have so much to be proud of! Again, I’m so happy for you! And so glad you’re here! Okay, about this party and that delicious cake, lol. Crank the music and grab a plate, it’s time to party and celebrate!

Queen Caz, 

Had to take a break from dancing and eating, lol, not for long though. I read through some of what I’ve missed while sitting here.

I hope you’re still enjoying your rides. It’s so true about taking care of our brain health and our physical health. They are starting to lift restrictions in cautious stages. Still, they’re saying there may be a second wave of it. Who knows when this will truly be over? Though we all definitely hope soon. I feel so sorry for those families that have had to endure loss during this mess. Thoughts and prayers are with them. 

Oh goodness, I agree. Some plants at nurseries are priced ridiculously. I have a few here that I started from others. A vine type. I wish I knew how to do that with a cutting from a rose bush. I have no clue though. If you have any thoughts on that or ideas of how to do it I’d love to hear them.

Would love a slice of that sour dough bread. I haven’t baked anything recently but thinking about making some banana nut bread or lemon pound cake.  Would like a couple slices of that sour dough bread. Toasted with meat and melted cheese. Yummy. 

Speaking of food, I hope your cholesterol has much improved. 

At the beginning of all this I was adding a bit of weight again (snacking a lot) but quit eating as much as it went on and have started losing weight again. Not sure I’ll know what size I actually wear anymore when this is over, lol. 

How are things your way? How are you doing throughout all of this? Good I hope. 

Talk more soon.

Hello Marilyn, Denim and all the March warriors!

Sorry I am late, but wanted to congratulate you all on two years!  This year seemed to go by so much faster than the first one, didn't it?  The first few months felt like a snails pace, but look at you all now!  I am right behind you and ever so grateful we were able to get this far.  My only issue right now is weight gain.  Still haven't lost what I gained and with the stay at home orders here in Cali, I have gained a few more.  

Found some not-so-annoying exercise videos on youtube, but I really need to stop eating and watching TV and just get more active.  I have been working from home, which is nice, but also more available for snacks.  LOL

Anyway, glad to see you are all still healthy and happy.  Stay safe!

Hey Denim 

Thanks got the party. Sorry I’m a bit late. Well actually I am a week late cause I just clicked over another week of quit time

Rose cuttings. Hmmm. I think I saw somewhere that you cut a stem and insert it into a potato then plant the whole thing into a pot. I haven’t actually tried it but I might give it a try. 

Diet and exercise reduced cholesterol from 7.5 to 5.5 so I’m off the hook re having to take the pills which pleases me greatly

Thanks for putting on this lovely party for me  .  Looking forward to actually being able party in the big house this time. Ha ha

     How are your plants coming along? Thanks for sharing the advice/idea. I haven’t tried it yet but I aim to. Fingers crossed. 

     I logged in yesterday to message you but had to log back out before I could post it here. Nonetheless, I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating yesterday. You deserve it. I hope you have a wonderful day today too! Please know that I continue think of you and others often. I’m sorry I can’t post as often as I’d like but I’ll post as I can. I hope you continue to post too. Hope you have a good weekend. On to month five! Hugs.
