Tired of doing it alone!

I'm a 51 year old woman who just received some bad news from her doctor. It seems that if I don't lose 66+ pounds ..I will become a diabetic. I always start diets with a bang and always end them with a whimper.

I really need this time to be different. I need help. I need someone who has been there , to help me through this. I have tried it alone before and have failed. I can't fail this time.... I just can't.

I'm a 51 year old woman who just received some bad news from her doctor. It seems that if I don't lose 66+ pounds ..I will become a diabetic. I always start diets with a bang and always end them with a whimper.

I really need this time to be different. I need help. I need someone who has been there , to help me through this. I have tried it alone before and have failed. I can't fail this time.... I just can't.


THE WOMAN INSIDE OF ME

There is a woman inside of me that makes me who I am. She is made up of experiences in her life,hurts, happiness, broken dreams and fulfilled wishes. Sometimes she is strong and would take on the world for her beliefs. Other times she is weak and vulnerable and as fragile as a child. She has a sense of humor, but not at someone's else's expense. She is always sensitive, not only to others needs but she is sensitive where her feelings are concerned as well.

She is a clean person,who values a clean body and mouth for she loves to kiss and feel that a fresh mouth is very sensual.

She doesn't look at the world through rose colored glasses but rather is hopeful in the possibilities of the world around her. She looks for the best in all who she meets,especially the ones that she love,for then and only then will their best truly shine through. She doesn't live in an idealistic, impractical or unrealistic world. For life has not been kind to her in her past and idealism would only set her up for disappointment and pain and that she cannot afford. But rather is an optimistic realist for she sees things as they are with the expectation that there is always the hope of turning a situation around to the best possible outcome. For she can go through life two ways, One way is always expecting the worse in a situation and therefore anticipating the worse in people as well, when the only defect we have is that we are human and therefore imperfect. Or the other way, she can go through life with the hope that we are always changing and therefore moving forward and changing for the best for doesn't everyone want to be a better person? They sometimes just need one person to believe in them for that to be achieved.

There are times when she is quiet and reserved, this is when she is unsure in a satiation and may need clarification before she can react. It is then that she is careful what she says for she would hate to react to something that she misunderstood or misinterpreted.

She is not a smart woman but she thrives for knowledge and understanding. She does however have this uncanny gift when it comes to being able to assess a persons feelings and body language. Maybe because her past has made her sensitive to others feelings.

She is slow to anger but has a stubbornness in her that when asserted, seems to ward off her opponent. But when it comes to the ones she loves her pig-headedness is almost non existent.

She believes in love, for that is the one true thing that is perfect in this world and although two people in love are far from flawless, the love that they share between them is. Making their union one of perfection. She doesn't give up easily if she knows that there is the slightest chance of being successful at achieving her goal, but she also senses when a situation is hopeless and will then be able to drop the ball and go on.

She loves to sing and be sang to, she loves to kiss that last for days,flying kites, star gazing , having picnics, watching sunsets,picking flowers, catching snowflake with her tongue, making snow angels and snowmen,going fishing. She loves to cook,sew, paint,write, read and be read to,loves to go for rides in a car with no particular destination, saxophones, fireplaces, dusk, clouds ,children, cold pizza and spaghetti, rainy Sundays, fire flies ,crickets ,going for walks with the one she loves ,holding hands ,hugs, fireworks, Autumn, grandfather clocks,music boxes, candles , big floppy hats, opals, coconut custard pie, sherbet, giggling , hot steamy baths, showering with her soulmate, having her hair washed, painted nails, puddle jumping, touching, being touched, Christmas, looking at Christmas lights, spooning, sleeping naked, wind chimes, lilacs, cat tails, pussy willows, bull frogs, horses, candle lit dinners, the ocean, Vermont, moonlit skies, soft breezes ,barbecued food ,the funnies, Abbot and Costello ,Laurel and Hardy.

Please don't judge me by my outside appearance, but look for what's inside of me.

I need to share this and hopefully it will bring a smile to your face. Unfortunately, I am a darn good example of these very same robbers...

You've heard about people who have been abducted and had their kidneys removed by black-market organ thieves.

My thighs were stolen from me during the night a few years ago. I went to sleep and woke up with someone else's thighs. It was just that quick. The replacements had the texture of cooked oatmeal. Whose thighs were they and what happened to mine?? I spent the entire summer looking for my thighs. Finally, hurt and angry, I resigned myself to living out my life in sweat pants.

And then the thieves struck again.
My butt was next. I knew it was the same gang, because they took pains to match my new rear-end to the thighs they had stuck me with earlier. But my new butt was attached at least three inches lower than my original! I realized I'd have to give up my sweat pants in favor of long skirts.

Two years ago I realized my arms had been switched. One morning I was fixing my hair and was horrified to see the flesh of my upper arm swing to and fro with the motion of the hairbrush. This was really getting scary - my body was being replaced one section at a time. What could they do to me next?

When my poor neck suddenly disappeared and was replaced with a turkey neck, so...I decided to tell my story.
People of the world, wake up and smell the coffee! Those 'plastic' surgeons are using REAL replacement body parts-stolen from you and me! The next time someone you know has something 'lifted', look again - was it lifted from you?

THIS IS NOT A HOAX. This is happening to people everywhere every night.

WARN YOUR FRIENDS!
P.S. Last year I thought some one had stolen my Boobs. I was lying in bed and they were gone! But when I jumped out of bed, I was relieved to see that they had just been hiding in my armpits as I slept. Now I keep them hidden in my waistband. These same thieves come in my closet and shrink my clothes! How do they do it????

I hope this little diddy put a big smile on your face...if it did then go out and show it to the world!

twice a week I will do cardio.

I will not deny myself what I really want... but I will track everything I eat.

My Program:
I have started weight watchers...but I have to limit my carbohydrates. I love carbohydrates... oh well! I will try to exercise at least three times a week.

Personal Information:
I'm live in Massachusetts. I love my girls and grandchildren. I'm a simple woman... I love the ocean, Gloucester in particular. I have a daughter who is developmentally delayed and will always live with me, so I'm not able to really have any kind of social life. But that's ok...I get by just fine.

Other Information:
My quote is based on my own life experiences... Dreams make reality bearable... never stop dreaming! I love to garden, read, write. I dabble in painting and etching. I was born in May... which makes me a bull... and yes I am very stubborn...lol. I love country music, it moves me!
