There are 2 ways I think of myself physically speaking: as the girl with the beautiful ice blue eyes, or as that obese 44 year old woman she turned into who's depressed and eating junk food in front of the TV. If I remember that underneath the extra pounds I'm still that beautiful girl, then I believe I deserve to look like and feel like her again.

Weigh ins 2007:
prior to joining SparkPeople I'd bounced from 227 down to 200 and back up to 217 over the first half of 2007 ...

What did you think of Con Law? I think it is the driest, most boring, dull class I have ever taken, including undergrad. Just picking up the book puts me to sleep. Seriously... if I want to stay awake reading it, I have to stand up at the kitchen counter to read.
