January 2012 I'm back to 244lbs, just seeing my pic of myself in 2/2011 at 244lbs brings back memories. I'd managed to back myself into another corner again, and this time I have to come out fighting myself. Somehow I'd always get to a point of reaching my goal, and then I sabotage the whole thing. Well this time is different, I've recently joined an 8 week Kosama boot camp which is next door to my job. The trainer and my colleagues motivate me to go there's the accountability. Now in my 4th week, I'm building strength and I'm down 5.5 lbs. Not sure where I'll go after the 8 weeks, but I assure it won't be back to 244 lbs.

    Adding you as a friend is my pleasure, we are sisters and you can never have too many sisters, but I must asmit that I find I;m spending less and less time on this site so you may only hear from me once in a while. I'm getting ready for service this morning, but I'll email you later to introduce myself....much love to you

    I know what you mean. It has been 20 years (20 yrs!!!!!) since I went to school and I remember feeling like I understood what it meant to be a Witness for the first time! It is truly an amazing gift. So glad you were able to take part in it!
