    Default Ann2's wise words...

    Hi All,

    I've been a regular reader of this forum since I was sleeved and have learned so much from you all. Thank you for sharing your journeys with everyone--it really helps when you're in the midst of unexpected family/medical/depression issues to know that other's have gone through and triumphed on the same path.

    I have followed a lot of Ann2's advice--as long as I was going in the right direction I figured it's ok no matter how long it takes (have had other medical issues that have gotten in the way eg had to take steroids that blow you up, etc.)--and am pleased that I haveaccomplished 75% of my weight loss journey.

    I've noticed that Ann2 has been quiet for the past few months which is unusual for her. I've been praying for her and am hoping all is OK. Does anyone know how she's doing? I tried searching the forum and didn't find any info.Thinking good thoughts for such a wonderful kind soul.

    Amanda

    Yes, we do!
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Thank you all! I'm fine, just fine!

    sraebaer just rattled my cage and told me to get my butt over here, that some of y'all were worried about me.

    The deal is that I spent the winter way down south and away from home. I was having such a great time that I took a big recess from most of my social media sites.

    I got back home in early April and have been working my patootie off since then cleaning out leaves, mending fences, cutting limbs, picking up timber, mowing fields, and getting back into my regular groove.

    It's good to travel and have adventures. And it's good to get home.

    I feel good. I look good. I am good! Sorry I caused any concerns.

    And thank you, AmandaNavigator for your sweet words.

    I'm glad you've found my journey helpful. But truth is, I just talk a lot, which means that sometimes I say something worthwhile.

    Ann2, your wisdom shines through when you share your experience. Please keep talking! ;-)

    I too have been traveling all over the USA and when I do, I have to take a break from all social media, etc. I’ve missed y’all and jumped back in. I have to take a break from catching up at home, too :-)

    Glad you're back Ann2! I have read at least a hundred or more of your posts and always find them to be so helpful. I just have to comment on your post. Are you really "cleaning out leaves, mending fences, cutting limbs, picking up timber, mowing fields...?" Will I actually be able to do things like that again after I lose weight? Or is it that you are only about 30 years old. I got tired, achy, and out of breath just reading about your activities! Glad you are doing so well!

    Oh, that's funny! Really LOLed.

    Honey, I'm 73. Don't look it. Definitely don't act it. But I am.

    And yes, I'm doing all that -- maybe not at the speed I once did, but I can git 'er done.

    BTW, you should see me dance!
