Merpig you are an honorary Canadian! Ive actually never been East past Ontario. Id love to check it out some day. My Mom is an artist and so much of her work is Maritime themed from her trips out there… always makes me want to go when I see them!

Jennyjenns, the Maritimes are an artist's dream, especially PEI. I've had folks ask me where scenic places are un PEI and I say "it doesn't really matter where you go. Just turn down any road and it will be scenic". I'm an artist myself and have tons of work from the Maritimes.

Canadian here too. Born in Montreal, but have been living in Vaughan, Ontario most of my life..( outside of Toronto).
My journey with Lc started in 1999, and have gone on and off of it a few times. Though with certain stressful circumstances in life, I have gained my weight back plus more... After going thru an early menopause, I gained an additional 20lbs... And it has been a real challenge...so trying to go back to the basics and start losing these 60lbs...I'm starting to realize that the LC WOE might end up being a way of life rather than just for weight loss.

I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone.

Isn't it nice that there are so many different places that we all should be able to find a place to love? I used ti think people who moved to Florida were insane. Then life brought me here four years ago and I love it so much I wish I'd done it sooner.



Exactly! It's a great big world we live in.
