First step on a journey...

I have been struggling with my weight and body image for most of my life. I fluctuate pretty wildly every couple of years - pretty wildly meaning 15 - 20 pounds - which on a 5'3 frame is pretty significant. I want to focus on being healthy, eating foods that fuel my body, becoming stronger (both physically and mentally!), and having a positive self image.

Thanks for the swim gear goodie and words of wisdom. Thalasso is reopened with a new name Kanassa (short for Kariyushi Kanna Thalasso Laguna-a few letters from each word) , and I have been 3 times to use the wonderful water jets and to walk laps in the salt water pool, but the swimming is on hold for another month per the doctor due to my 2 partial tears in my rotator cuff.

Thanks for the comment on my Hungry Caterpillar quilt. It was an easy one-the kids love it.

Thank you so much for the goodie with your kind words of understanding and help! It's been tough but like you said one step or sometimes one minute at a time. Your help is very much appreciated! Hugs! ~Ann
