Getting there one day at a time

I've been wanting and trying (half-heartedly) to lose weight ever since I was 22 yrs old. The only time I dropped the weight with success was after pregnancies and while really depressed after my husband left. As I began to feel more myself again, I also started packing on the pounds. I would like to get the weight off in a healthy way, and not be a grouch while doing it. I love myself as I am, but I know I could be/do better. This is my attempt.

Hey sweety! Thank you for the comments on my blog Created for Beauty. I am sorry for the lose of your sister. I am sorry for the pain on her heart that caused her seek a way out. I hope that you have the love and support around you that you need to heal and be whole. As women I think it can be easy to spackle over pain and hurt and try to put a glossy finish on it so that others don't hurt.

***Be brave, be bold, be fierce and be fabulous***

Hey there! Yeah, that costochondritis is pretty painful-so, a whole YEAR??? Wow...fortunately for me, I scaled back my upper body workouts for about a week and used the heating pad and I think it's gone-thank goodness! I had never heard of it before...it's been interesting because I've had several p people respond to this and tell me about having it or knowing someone that did. I'm just glad we're BOTH rid of it!
