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.

    This Christmas,
    may you have the fulfillment
    of seeing around you
    the people you love the most.
    May you have the satisfaction
    of creating special memories
    they will remember with pleasure forever.
    This Christmas,
    may you feel peaceful and contented,
    knowing what Christmas means,
    and celebrating it your way.

    I have had cats since I was four years old. There have only been a few years that I didn't have one, but I've surely more than made up for it (the most at one time was 10). I got my first dog when I was 40! They are so different from cats, but still very lovable.

    Happy Thanksgiving! My cats love it because they get human tuna, and the dogs get ham chunks. As for me, I get indigestion and lots of dishes to wash!

    Happy day to you. emoticon
