Hey..I enjoyed reading that. Thanks for sharing. You should be O.K. with the 7 pounds...you hired a personal trainer...muscle weighs more than fat!!! It is the reading glasses that should worry you!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Just kidding cause I wear them too and my only worry about that is trying to keep up with them!

I'm scared to go back and think on my list of 08 yet yours was so what's the word - amazing and brave and real - that now I want to delve into mine. Very well written.
