Re: [MOL] Hi!!



We used to have a walking group connected with the mall, and each time you
went and walked the whole mall, you would get a card stamped and after so
many points you could buy something.  It was a huge success.

Now you two ladies, are you ready for this one?  On my diabetes food and
drinks I can have all the diet soda I want.  Golllllllyyyyyyy, can we ever
win?  I used to be hooked on soda; but no more, history.

I would think what you are doing is great Deb, after all exercise, healthy
eating;etc. is good for cancer folks.  Will we be having tofu?  LOL!  I
promise you would not know a strawberry tofu shake from the real thing....
