Hi, I LOVE the name of this group because I am sick and tired and FED up of my largess. I've had success about four years ago and it's amazing what a person's self-confidence and emotions are like when he/she is loving how they look! I wish I was one of those great people that could ignore looks, but growing up in our modern world made me of this horrible mentality that make one's appearance carry a lot of weight (no pun intended) in my psyche. Now that I just started calling attention to myself in public by wearing the hijab, my motivation is even higher to get slim and fit!! I'm in a family full of athletes: all my kids are active and fit (hockey mostly, but figure skating too), and my husband's ideal weight has never changed in all our 17 years of marriage. No EXCUSES!!!
