I feel like an olive.
Really. I do. I wanted so bad to be much thinner by summer and it is just not happening. Is that toooooo much to ask? I'm losing my "peppy" attitude about all of this. Is it ever going to happen for me?
I put on my black swimsuit today. I a... Read more
Okay, so I haven't been on in awhile, but that doesn't mean I haven't been on track. I've stepped off a little, but not real bad at all. I have skipped three months of measurements, but at least I weighed this month. So here is my current weigh ... Read more

Yea it's a week.

The Good Life
There are plenty of people out there waiting to call you a failure. A loser.
Don't ever give them the chance, & never say it of yourself. Whatever signal
you send out, is what others are gonna pick up. You hit a wall...push through it. -tin-... Read more
Faith is taking that first step up, even when you can't see the stairs.
Wrapping up the weeks events for myself as followed: I had a nervous break down, then was the victim of "fat statements" in the college student center. After that... Read more
Broken heart? Maybe.
Today was my second day of the new college quarter, and my very first time juggling a full student workload. About 11:00 last night I broke down. I had no sleep for three days, the new hybrid system wasn't working, and I couldn't figure out my a... Read more
Unspoiled Territory 2013

Thar' Be Runner In This Blood

for all you have to do to win is rise each time you fall.
Get up!" the echo urged him on, "Get up and take your place!
You were not m... Read more
Silenced in Prayer for CT
My heart, my thoughts, and my grief stretches to those affected by the CT shooting. It's tragic, heartbreaking, disgusting, and horrific that something like this has happened. When will it end? I woke up to this horrifying news, as did everyone ... Read more
