A gardener, philosopher, writer, reader, dreamer, animal and pet lover, friend, optimist, philanthropist, do-gooder, designer, artist, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. I am determined to move toward continued good health and the energy to enjoy it with a few less pounds.

I have some physical limitations - As a passenger in a car accident when I was 25 I sustained permanent nerve damage that leaves me with about 20% of the use of my left arm and I was born left handed. I have spinal compression from the accident that minorly limits me. I have trick knees and foot problems - but I stay as active as I can.

I love to garden and that gives me plenty to do at this time of year. I ride my bike, try to walk 10,000 steps a day and love cardio dancing and short (10 minutes or so) workout videos. I try to read one book every week or so. I'm a good cook and am having fun creating new recipes for the Fast Metabolism diet phases.

In Irish Gaelic "Thank you very much," is written "Go raibh m�le maith agat" and is pronounced gurrah meel-ah mah hahgut. I am told the actual translation is: "May you have a thousand kindnesses."
So, I wish you Go raibh m�le maith agat!!

    Happy hump day my friend! I hope you let me know how you are doing...I miss you muchly and I'm so happy you will be doing the Fall Challenge. I did okay on the summer losing 7 lbs. The thing to do is to maintain that loss and keep going down. I have a bad habit of putting on the weight I lost between challenges. Still fighting for our house but had to change lawyers and I'm not sure this new guy is the person we really need to triumph our case ....PLUS he is SO expensive...he charges for every breath you take! emoticon
