While we were eating lunch out today, I happened to notice that I was not the fattest person in the restaurant.
In fact, it dawned on me, that since losing the 60 pounds, I have been a lot of places, and have not been the largest person there...I cannot tell you how good that made me feel.

It gave me incentive to keep moving forward today. I still have a lot of weight to lose. But that feeling, oh my, it just felt so good.

I can remember being at a restaurant, and some kid was staring at me. His Mom told him to quit staring at me, just because I was fat...I wanted to crawl into a hole and pull the dirt over me, I felt so low. I pretended that I didn't hear it, but hear it, I did. It made me feel like a second class citizen.

No more, ladies.
We are not second class citizens.
We are vivacious ladies, working toward better health.
We only fail, if we give up.
Don't let other people make you ashamed of yourself.
We are here, we are getting slimmer, and stronger and healthier.
Other people, well, let them walk in our shoes for a few days...that's the nice way to say it. I was going to tell them where to go, but I won'

my lesson for today.
Don't ever give up.
Each time we have to start over, that's wonderful, that we can start over.
What I eat for today, will not make me fail.
If I have a bad day, well so be it, a bad eating day.
Get out there, get on with what you need to do, to be healthier...

ok girls,
let's get going.
