and welcome. I am now the "fat friend", used to be the curvaceous friend. I, too, need some stick-to-it-ive-ness. So little seems to throw me off so far, like getting a bad cold, then trying to get back into an exercise routine. And I'm really tired of having to pay attention to all this. I know that's not very helpful. I see a dietician on Tuesday, hopefully I'll get a little inspired. Here's something to keep in mind, however. I'm going to be 62 in April. This struggle doesn't get any easier as you age and your metabolism slows. I was going to be "Fit at Forty", then "Fit at Fifty", then "Slim at Sixty". I'm not there yet. With a 3 year old at home, you must be fairly young. The time to establish better habits is NOW, while you still can. You're getting fit will be a good influence on your child, too.
"If you wanna be somebody else, if you're tired of fightin' battles with yourself, if you wanna be somebody else, Change Your Mind." Sister Hazel, from "The Fortress" CD.
I am stronger than the food.
I am not that person any more.

Hello Fellow North Dakotans! I need your help. I need a support system! I have horrible will power. I want to lose weight so bad, but it just never comes off, it just keeps adding an adding up. This is the biggest I have ever been, and I am so ashamed. I like to work out, but with my 3 year old at home with me, I never FULLY get the workout I want. I look at myself in the mirror and I don't like what I see. I feel like I am the Fat friend. YOu know what I am talking about, there is always one girl that is bigger than all the rest, that's me, always has been. I am sick and tired of being her. I have a stocky frame so I know I will never be a size 6. I don't care what the number says, I just want to feel good and confident. Please help me!
