Hello everyone

Sorry for being away from all the action.Just been very busy .Much as i try to be good....i end up cheating during TOM. So whatever i lose during the month comes right back to where it belonged ... Depressing...huh..

So i see Valentines was very eventful for you girls.....reminds me of my younger days (lol) This time, it was working like crazy all day long and then we finally hit the bed with only enuff energy to cuddle up and drift off to sleep.Half asleep i heard him murmuring and remembering how we spent our first valentines together.....that was enuff for me...!! Not that i mind being wooed with a dozen red roses, but hey if he did that-i'd die of a heart attack..!!!I prefer him the way he is.

SO Jas, you have a great time in Houston.Enjoy the weather and family. Try and be as good as you can !!!

Neela, Anu- what's up ? How are u 2 doing ? ive been stalled at 139 for almost a month and a half.What's your progress like?

Will try to get in here more frequently....U all Take care and keep lo-carbing !

Well, I am back from sunny Houston!! We have slippery roads here so much snow that driving is treacherous! What a change from Houston weather - it was so nice and warm! We had tea every morning outside on the deck. All my sis' flowers were still blooming! Sometimes I think we have rocks in our head living out here!!

I already miss my sister - we had such a great time! My sis is skinny - I felt quite fat! I gained about 7 lbs. so I need to get serious!

So how are you ladies doing?

Sounds like you had a great time in Houston. My hubby is in California for a business trip. I'm so jealous he gets to be in some warm weather. I'm dying for summer! We are going to Costa Rica in May so I've been very strict on my diet. I'm so excited about the trip.

Hey Neela - good for you! I thought I had dieted and lost some before I went but standing next to my sis...I was fat! (sigh!) My birthday is in April - so the diet is starting in earnest! Are you doing Induction? Costa Rica sounds great - is it expensive to go there?

Default an e-mail from my indian friend

Shocking Story about Gurgaon !!!!!!





Read this true story... and let everybody you know in and around Delhi,

especially Gurgaon know this.......



My friend lives in Delhi... One day he went to Gurgaon to visit his

uncle for some days. One evening he and some other of my college friends

went to Priya's for a movie. He had so much fun that he forgot that it was

very late. He reached Gurgaon around midnight......





He had to walk about a mile from where his friend dropped him.... As he was

walking alone, he could sense that the night felt very creepy as it was so

dark. While walking, he was astonished to see an old creepy looking guy

selling some books. It was a very unusual thing to see a thing like

that..... It got the shivers on him when he noticed that his old guy is

unusually pale and staring at him...

The old guy said "Son why don't you get a book...it would keep you

company". Then he did something which he would regret for the rest of his

life .........



My friend started to act brave & thought why not & had a look at his

collection.. he noticed that all the books were related to supernatural

activities...but he found one that was very interesting. So he asked the

old man "how much is it?"....



The old guy replied, "Well son...this is an interesting book...it's only

for Rs 250. "



My friend was shocked and said "but...but...it's expensive"



This time the old man stared which freaked my friend. My friend quickly

checked all his pockets & found Rs.200 & said "This is all

I hav e." The old guy replied "It's OK son ...you can have the book

for that price"



As ! my friend was just about to run for home...the old man called

back & said "Son ... whatever happen, you don't ever flip the book

to it's last page... remember these words or you would regret it...!!!!!"



My friend nodded and never looked back ... Reaching home...he

quickly asked his Uncle whether there was any new old book seller

nearby? The Uncle replied "not that I know of but ...we've heard that

there's 1 old man comes once in a while during full moon nights but heard

that there is something creepy about it...why son?"



My friend freaked out... he told his uncle "nothing uncle...just

asking". He started reading the book with the old man's words on

his mind. At night, 2 o'clock, as he went to bed, a gush of wind blew which

chilled him up to his bones. At that glimpse, he noticed the wind had blown

the pages to its last page. He remembered what the old man has said! But we

humans tend to have the tendency to know. Out of curiosity, he flipped to

the last page & fainted...



What he saw at the last page is stated below:

Don't look further down if you have a weak heart I warn you































































..........

Original price:-- Rs. 20/-

Promotion price:-- Rs. 10/-



Ha Ha Ha ! I also wasted my time reading this mail so why cant you?

no i'm from Liverpool UK

I'm going to Goa for 4 weeks on the 23rd of this month for a vacation, to see if I can still take the heat 95F today (not a spring chicken any more) and just see about retiring in India.

I have been to India many times when I was serving in the merchant navy but its not the same as being there for a long stay.
