Fed Up with Being Fat

(formerly "AvoidinReality"...I feel that name does not represent me as I travel on this new journey.....now I am a phoenix rising "fromtheflames"!)

I've reached my breaking point! After years of hovering around the 235/230lb mark (at only 5ft tall), I started to feel the "tightening of the belt". I will not allow one more pound on this body! I control my body, it does not control me!

08/20/12 - 235lbs
09/01/12 - 230lbs
09/10/12 - 226lbs

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
-Agnes M. Pharo

Wishing you and your loved ones a Christmas full of love and laughter.
