I'm a single, 32 year old female and I've been overweight almost my entire life. My weight keeps me from participating in many social activities / events with others my age. I feel like I'm already a senior citizen!!! A friend recommended this site to me and I thought "What the heck? Might as well give it a shot!"

    I was referring to the regular old oriental chicken...it has pasta with it, I think. Or maybe I'm thinking of something else...I don't know. But I had NO IDEA they had a new Fruit Inspirations line!! Yeah, seriously, now I'm hungry.

    How'd you do today?

    Hi Tia!

    Thanks for your comment...it's nice to know that I have a fellow bad-money-decision-making-non-profit-compa
    ving kindred spirit!

    My debt came from deciding that it was a super good idea to take out those stupid internet payday loans and credit cards to pay for things like shoes and new clothes and MP3 players rather than get a second job and actually try to live within my means. Ah, to be young again...

    I'm lucky because my part-time job is in a different department as my full time job, so my commute is just a walk down the hall from my office. I also for some reason have a mini-fridge in my office, so I stocked it with healthy stuff. But I hear you on the temptation to drive through the fast food joints. This is the temptation I face every night when I'm driving home.
    You know what are awesome? Those SmartOnes meals. Try the oriental chicken and thank me later :)

    I'll be 30 on January 2 of next year. And I'm very much looking forward to it.

    Keep up the good work! Every day it gets easier...or so they tell me.
