Hi I am a 53 year old Mother of three and grandmother of four. Wow isn't it amazing how we define ouselves through others. A year ago i was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I admit after each baby i gained 20 lbs so 60 lbs after the third baby that i found next to impossible to budge..but i was active and this did not bother me till my diabetes i amserious I want this weight off and off for good...

Also my third child my only son was born 17 weeks premature and to be honest the first few years when we did not know if each illness meant we would lose him forever made me a stress eater..comfort foods that made me feel better temporarily . Well lets say a few extra pounds got packed on then, I tipped the scales at 200 to be exact and over this past year I have managed to budge 9 of those pounds off with the help of my nutrionist and not had them to come back and haunt me. I especially crave those chocolate covered marshmallow biscuits when feeling stress with the raspberry goooood but so bad for me.

The other thing is my son is autistic and has a condition that is defined by the intials PVL and is amouthful to say so to say stress is no longer part of my life be a lie but those cookies are (hopefully).

    Wow, that GM-GF Favoritism sounds bad! I'dda stopped playing myself. Our old GM was already going downhill, but when we brought his girlfriend into the RP group things went so far south it wasn't funny. They would not only fight in front of the rest of us, if things didn't go her way she would pout and take it all personally, and our game sessions would literally stop for half an hour at a time while they hashed it out. There was one time her character went out of her way to get drunk and sleep with an NPC (literally, the player said "Raven is getting drunk and findnig some guy to score with). She also didn't ask for any form of "protection". In a post-apocalyptic world with no prophylactics, the GM made the rolls for catching VD or getting pregnant, and she asked what he was rolling for. When he told her she threw a FIT! After that wonderful fight, he tried to make it up to her by offering her experience for A) finding out Angel was undead (when what really happened was: Raven asked Angel, "so who are you?" and Angel TOLD her the truth), and B) learning a new skill (which my brother reminded her to do). He also allowed her to raise her swordfighting to a level 6 after one impressive kill. Most players can't get above a level 5 skill unless they do something AMAZING to earn it, like, Angel pulled off TWO impossible kills with her hexes AND stole a world-changing relic from the game's Biggest Bad before that same GM would let me have a level 6. Finally, the GMs girlfriend signed up for a Monday class and wanted to know if we could change our game nights to Tuesdays. Of the four other players, she and the GM asked my Fiance, who said he couldn't do Tuesdays, and my brother, who worked Tuesdays. They never asked me or the last player... and then, at our last session, the GM announced we were officially moving to Tuesdays. Yeah... at that point the rest of us called it quits. We've started new campaigns for both games that GM was in charge of without inviting either of them!
