The start of a year long journey

I did not grow up overweight but began to gain ten pounds a year every year from mid twenties till I reached the horrible grand total of 286 pounds.. I got the flu, than a head cold one after the other and lost 26 pounds. And there I have been stuck between 250 and 260 for about 15 years. Spark People has given me the motivation, encouragement and tools I need to get rid of this 140lb ball and chain I wear.

Good to hear you dog. The reason why I seldom to come this site it is because every time I open this site I feel chest pain. I am strugle like right now I feel it. My heart is fine. I know no body believes me here if I try to tell you what I feel but its true. I am drinking my medicine every day but when I open this site now I feel chest pain but if I log out the pain is gone.

I love you all here and I like you all here. I have a secret in my life that I know no body believes me. This is why of the reason I think I have chest pain. Some religion called me a good Christian. Some called me pig too. If I like a person, that person dont like me. I go to the opposite all the time and my words most of the times are opposite meaning.

I heard my Fellow Filipinos that, when I said to them I hate this guy and they response to me, I love foreigners and that is true I love all foreigners. I dont have any problems, I did not hear voices and etc. I do a lots of work here, I work out daily too, but I seldom to tract my activity here it is because I have this feelings chest pain every time I log in this site.

I think I go to opposite site, your a Filipino and I am foreigner or white lady now. Because people in our city called me photocopy. It is because I can photocopy the attitudes and likes of a person. This is one of my secret in life. Now I am telling you one of my secret my chest pain is gone now.

Hope some body understand to me here. I am looking a real good friend who can fought me and say words against my word because if not, I can not online this site often because my chest pain some times is not bearable.

(we were conserving gasoline, so we use the generator sparingly)
I recently saw a picture of myself 50 pounds heavier than NOW playing a tiny mandolin. It is good to compare the THEN shots to the NOW shots, and not get frustrated by the IWANNABE shots!

Thanks for that wonderful idea about the worry diary. I just read in my bible this morning something about "who of you can add one day to your life by worrying"? My time at night is so limited. My days are very long and last forever. I get very little down time before I go to bed. If I were able to do things as rapidly as most people, I would have more time. But I am a real snail due to permanent injuries from a car wreck. But I do have a new notebook and really like the worry diary idea. I think I shall do it!
