PS... DO not give up! You have been doing so well on WW plan. Just take it one choice at a time.

Its a slow going thing.... but you can do it! Look at all your previous sucess and feel proud for yourself! I know you can continue on your healthy journey.

Think how good you feel drinking water and making better choices and walking...

I have not been doing that great on WW lately either... but I have not given up and I HOPE you do not either....

You are very inspirational!

Oh, that pumpkin fluff is one of my favorite recipes and I was thinking of making it, and I was wondering how many points it would be. I like to use it as a dip for apples or graham crackers or gingersnaps.
