First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for making my first year of blogging inspirational, motivational, and exciting:
My New Blog Buddies: Thanks for allowing my blog the opportunity to entertain and motivate you as we both struggle through our weight loss endeavor. Many times last year I wanted to surrender to the food devil and just give up, but your blogs encouraged me to persevere.
Me So Hongry First-Timers:WELCOME! Sit back, strap on your seat belt and get ready for a roller coaster ride. Experience my ups and downs with me and I hope you plan to return time and time again.
My Supportive Lurkers:You know who you are. Those of you I inspired to venture to Goodwill or try new food products, show me some love when stopping by my blog.
