Thanks for the kind words notaclone13!

You have inspired me to re- commit to my own weight loss and fitness goals despite being over 65.

If I could give one piece of advice on your weight loss and fitness goals....don't think despite being over 65! I truly believe age is not a factor in a lifestyle change based on my experience. Its the will and commitment to do it! So I say YOU CAN DO IT!

Great for you! Wishing you all the best. Did you get the second dose of the vaccine and did you have any side effects? Did you have any issues with the face?
Which vaccine did you get?
Thank you!

Yes had the 2nd dose, and no side effects at all, arm a little sore the next day, nothing else. I had the Pfizer vaccine.
