Today...NOW...I am once again a woman on a mission.

Today, I wake up with the realization that I have been living obese for nearly 25 years, almost half my life. That is a sobering and sad reality.

I have two grown children and two amazing grandchildren. I have a great job, family and friends who love and encourage me.

I must get "un-stuck."

Thanks for the encouragement of being proud of ourselves! I need to be reminded of that as it is hard for me to do. I am proud of you too! For taking part in our Hottie Challenge and for wanting to improve your health! Go for it all the way!!! We can do it!

Hugs, Gail

Sorry that I have not been more supportive. I battle depression every day and have for nearly 40 years. A good day is getting out of bed, showering and cooking 3 decent meals (not just having a bag of cookies or chips for dinner.) Basics. On a great day I can add making contact with old friends like you to the list.

We are now at a similar weight (I'm 285) and headed for a similar goal (my goal is 140).

I will try harder to be a better support to you. Don't give up.

Thank you for the nice comments on my blog. Congrats on finally taking control of your life with the divorce, going back to school and now taking steps to get healthier. That is wonderful that you went back and finished your Masters, that is an amazing feat in itself, let alone doing it while trying to raise children!

I should have left a long time ago, 12 years was way too long, but I am so happy that it is done and over with now and I am ready for the new chapter of my story.

We have come so far internally that we now need to match that with the external us! And I am confident that we can do it with help and encouragement from our SparkFriends!

Keep up the good work!
