Perfect….look at the detail! Thanks Jan!

We spent the day on Mt Pisgah and could see our condo through our binoculars…..

My other news is health related! (and so I am including a photo of ME on Mt Pisgah ready to do a little hiking!) I decided to change my diet….add more healthy veggies and cut my carbs and sugar intake….and I’ve lost 10 pounds (in three weeks) ! YAY for me! I have also exercised every day! So that has made me feel better (along with my clothes! lol) I did not , as so many diet ads say…..lose 10 pounds and 5 dress sizes! heehee! But my clothes feel loose again and I have more energy so I am very happy with the difference!

DSCN7979

Any encouraging words would be welcome! It’s not easy losing weight at my age! lol Hope you have a marvelous Monday! I look forward to visiting you!

I’ll be right back….after my walk! Can you come?  Hot
