read this today and it hit home in places.time for some thinking for me

Saturday, April 21, 2012

hope this helps some of opened my eyes on a few is an excerpt out of it along to the link to it all.

9. How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?

I can do anything I want. The sense of formidable power I once derived from being big can now be derived from being very likely the fittest person in any given room. I look at my body for all its loose skin and stretch marks and I realize that it has always done exactly what I needed it to do. It has kept me isolated when I felt like pushing everyone out of my life, and now that I want to draw them near, it attracts friends, family and lovers just as I desire. It's also a lot more comfortable - it's an all weather body - less fat covering means less unbearable heat in summer. Better circulation means I can better adjust to cold in winter. It's not just attractive to others, it serves my own purpose too.

thanks for dropping by my blog and taking the time to read.i might not have time to than you all personally so will thank you is much appreciated.take care my friends and keep smiling.donīt forget to let your fitgirl shine through.

Thanks for the goodie, too :)

We've decided to wait until June 1st to move into a new apartment. Our son loves his current school, so we want him to have another 6 weeks at a school he loves. Then we'll start our new life in June :) Looking forward to it!! emoticon emoticon
