I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

To have a friend, be a friend.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

I have one daughter. four cats, one cat I'm babysitting, and one feral cat (who just crossed over the rainbow bridge). I like to crochet, knit, and do needle crafts.

Hi Vanessa!!! Thanks for your friendship and support. But I already messed up! Passed a McDonald on the way home from my doctors appointment. I had to go in on a fast, so I felt like I was starving to death. Kept telling myself I can make it home.... but the light changed to red, and the next thing I knew I was inside ordering lunch. Its been so long since I had a big Mac and fries, and of course I found my side getting that chocolate shake. I enjoyed every bit of that, then the guilt hit me! I shouldn't have done that!!! They put a heart monitor on me this morning, and I was told no stress or strain for the next 30 days, I can't even work it off at the gym. Girl, I need my butt kicked, I knew better. emoticon

Oh, I see you have a birthday!!! Well, the best of wishes for your special day! emoticon
