I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

To have a friend, be a friend.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

    Hey Vanessa...thanks for the goodie.
    Woke up as stiff as Frankenstein's monster this morning. I hope to do better tomorrow.
    My joints don't work well for a day or 2 after snowfall. Don't really want to load up on Aleve unless I need it.
    Stay Well..{hugs}

    Hi Vanessa
    Got your message about the 10 minute challenge. I am trying to break up some HIT routines throughout the day so that I don't get sore. I try making up my own Zumba routine while holding 5 lb dumbbells. So far so good.

    How are you doing?
