    Thank you for adding me as a friend Joan . . . I have added you also!

    It's mid-week, how are you doing? We have a streak going on one of my teams and that has been a tremendous help to me and other members! Doing it together really is great!

    It's always nice to see Canadians on here!

    All the best to you on your healthy lifestyle journey!

    I just added you as a friend, too. I notice we are the same age. I'm sort of grateful to be still alive, but this getting older is a bummer. If you've read my blogs, though, you know that exercise has helped me feel more fit than I was in college. Even though my body worked much better then, I have a lot more stamina now. Exercise is for me.

    Good luck on your journey. Congratulations on your well-defined goals.

    Your friend,
