For many reasons concerning things like insane schedules, foot surgery, and incredibly I'll relatives I have not seen my dad and the aforementioned baker of the most wonderful chocolate cookies, my stepmother, in about three years.
My Dad's 75th birthday is this year and I asked a couple of months ago if the family would be gathering to mark such an event, but because of a very ill relative no one could commit. My stepmother sent an email yesterday and there will be a get together in a couple of weeks...I have no idea who or how many, but I would like to lose the 6.7lbs by then. For me, it would be a personal low and a huge confidence boost.
It is good to have a goal...and a sense of urgency.
