OMG!! # 1 hit too close to home. I have been beating myself up for too long for allowing myself to become what I am. I am glad to see it in writing that I need to throw away the images I have of myself from highschool and start over and accept myself for what I am today.
I can really relate to the walk/run in public. I had surgery 4 weeks ago and since then have been out with both of my crutches on the jogging path, and yesterday I was out with one crutch on the jogging path. Sure, I might look funny out there as a cripple, but I am out there anyways. I might not be fast, but who is with crutches and so soon after surgery?

Great advice. I have just started some sessions with personal trainer, so that makes me keep appointments. She lets me go at my own pace. I find I can restrict calories by filling half my plate with vegetables. Didn't realise until recently how fattening fruit is! Love from Susie in the UK
