Wow, Ntombi! Love the new avatar. What a difference!

There's no one whose been here for awhile who doesn't know you're one of the smartest gals on this board when it comes to LC---and I would imagine much else in your life. I remember when I first started posting here, and you were always there, commenting and answering my questions or commenting with wisdom, always acknowledging and adding in. Boy, did I appreciate that when I was a newbie here and I still do.

You are living the commitment we all want to live and are very steadfast and inspiring, not the least because you are always positive---don't think I've ever heard one peep from you about a stall or a disappointment. You know yourself and what works for you. And we can sure see how well it's working.

For me, you're a touchstone here, someone I admire a lot.

Like dgidaho said, I always like reading what you have to say on the low carb front. There's been many ... many, many ... times I've thought about pm'ing you for advice on something.

You're doing great and look fantastic!!
