Good morning!

Words are escaping me in describing how grateful I am for all of your support on yesterday’s behind the scenes look at my past eating disorder. Imagine my big bear hugs through the computer :)

  1. Really enjoyed “when does healthy living become a diet” (that girl is always right on!!), Amanda’s applesause muffins (yum!), and “I used to have hips” 😉👍👍
    Hope you have a great weekend Alison! 💗

  2. I would have missed that awesome discussion on Arman’s HE SAYS/SHE SAYS..thank goodness for your links!
    Vy had me in giggles, while bringing her point across clearly..lifestyle changes aren’t easy. Ohhh and of course that “Deep disk breakfast cookie” is on my to-make-list..so quick and simple.
    The courage and passion for their sport shone “Inspiring Olympic moments”.
