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.

Thanks for the comment on my tracker. I have found in the past that weighing in weekly seemed to lead to not being on program so I decided this time I weigh only once a month. I am staying within my calorie limits almost everyday. I love the activity tracker. Got mine in mid March and have earned the 50 mile trophy. 5000 steps almost 5 times a week. Body still wants 2 rest days-guess that's my 64 year old body. emoticon emoticon

Love your wallpaper. Friends help us keep moving in the right direction.

A quote I like is: "Initially direction is more important than speed" -- I just don't remember who said it. emoticon

I love Cleveland! Huge fan of the art museum and love a treat from Presti's in Little Italy. Grandview is a suburb just barely outside of downtown Columbus, a little bit North and West, right next to OSU. She's going to be carrying some really cool things!
