This thread was started before the dawn of time by Amazons who needed to compare their stats with other Amazons. Over time it grew into a community of incredible women who try to keep their spirits in the clouds and their feet on the ground, moving toward health. Most of us start at 5'7 and go up from there, from young singles to wise and lively elders of the tribe. We welcome newcomers who are willing to be kind and share a bit of their lives.
GM Cats: I truly wish I could come up with a snappy title, but I left any ounce of creativity in me back in 2016. Speaking of being creative, I did buy some yarn to make a hat. It's been years since I've knit. I'm no where in the same league as Anne and Susan, but I fuddle through. My problem was never checking the gauge.
Here's a laugh: I changed the font so I could read it with no problem while typing. But I just clicked on the emoji box to put the above emoji on it, and they are SO SMALL I can barely make out what they are. They should change the font size on emoji's too.
I want to come up with some words I can chant to myself and wonder if you all could help. I want to say to myself something like: You are working hard at it, the weight will come off. Or the weight will release. I'm trying to find something to throw out there to the Universe. Like a self fulfilling prophecy. But I'm not coming up with anything good.
It's early and I think I'll get dressed and hit the grocery store. It's nice to shop when there aren't many people in the store.
After all our starters, Frieda, we don't have to be clever. Some mornings it's a sufficient challenge to remember the day. Theater tickets followed by DD and DBF for dinner mean I have to unwind this snail and move more swiftly today. I will venture out for a walk soon. Hmmm. Bespoke mantras. I'll work on that. Sorry for the crud, Shari.
I wonder how Anne's program is shaping up. I hope there is no fallout from the exit, stage left, of the unhappy player.

Good morning CATs. It's beautiful and quiet on creek this morning. I have a cup of coffee and am waiting for the sun to warm things a bit more so I can sit on the porch. We signed the listing papers and have crossed our fingers. It will be a bit sad - the end of an era - but the start of a new one. I was a bit nostalgic looking at all the old cheap furniture we had cleaned up and refinished when we started this venture 25+ years ago.
I'm with you Freida on needing to resurrect or create a mantra. I used to ask myself "how bad do you want it". But that doesn't seem to work for me now. I should think about something too.
MM and I will head back to Raleigh this afternoon, probably after lunch somewhere on a waterfront. I'm feeling a bit overbooked for the rest of this month and next. My audit is looming large at work the week of 3/20 but it's MM's 60th on 3/15 and I've just invited his daughters to the beach for the weekend just before the audit even though we have an obligation with my family the weekend before and are taking a 4-day trip to Charleston the weekend after. I'll get everything done, right??
Time to start some breakfast and get moving. Have a great Sunday everyone.
