    Good Morning from Athens! I just wanted to pop by and let you know that I am trying to drum up some Athens love since our sparkteam just can't seem to click together. However, I wanted to let you know that you are doing a great job! Stop by our page anytime you need encouragement or to celebrate a win! I would love to have more local support from Sparkers as well as all the amazing worldwide support we get here on Sparkpeople. emoticon

    Hey lady! Thanks for looking at my blog!

    I'm getting better with water. Yesterday was a mess but I had 9 glasses, my highest to date, and cannot wait for today to get started. I haven't had a diet pepsi in a week and it makes me very happy! I'm feeling better and ready to roll forward with taking better care of myself.

    Hugs to you! Hope you have a fabulous week!
