    Sorry dear it will take more than 3 weeks to affect that.

    Sometimes it’s not how your body looks, it’s how you feel. I always feel stronger and have more energy.

    I, personally, don’t see what Elle is complaining about, to me she looks just as svelte now as she did before the holidays. I don’t think she has put any weight on at all. But then again, I’m a man and am just not sensitive to such things at that. Ha Ha!

    how you feel is the important thing. If you feel bogged down with extra weight you show it.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This was written when I actually had palpable skeletal outcroppings. I had hips and shoulder blades and ribs I could strum in the mirror. Today, I’m lucky to be able to feel anything structural through the padding.

    Lynn, I love your way with words. Do you write as well as draw?

    What is it with mothers and pockets full of wadded up tissues? lol

     

    When you’ve got kids — especially with one as young as Lizzie — there’s ALWAYS a snotty nose that needs to be wiped and tissues carried around in a Mom’s pants pockets are the easiest, fastest way to get ahold of one when you need it in an emergency!!!!!

    Actually, Night-Gaunt49 had it right. “Effect” is a noun, and “Affect” is a verb. So he used the correct word.

    Both are right, depending on what you see as the antecedent to ‘that’. You can say it will take more than three weeks to affect (have an effect on) her hips, or to effect (bring about) change to her hips.
    Both words are used both as nouns and verbs…although the use of ‘affect’ as a noun (meaning, roughly, expressiveness) is pretty much confined to medicine and psychology.
    Just please avoid ‘impact’ as a verb in my presence ;-)
