    Re: Another 'small' scale victory

    Yes, traveling is the toughest time for me, too. And I travel a lot.

    Lee, not yet. But I have a consultation in early August with a cosmetic surgeon / aesthetician (spelling?) to see what my options are. Mostly, I just want my younger neck and jawline back. :)

    Re: Drinking cold fluids

    I drink a lot more water when it's warm, even hot.
