Is there anybody out there....

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

I'm 51 yrs old, and I found this site today. Working a full-time job while raising two teenage daughters alone, my husband of 23 yrs left me 4 yrs ago for a blond toothpick half my age. I've tried to smile all day while secretly fighting to hang on. Eating has helped to dull the pain, but weight gain has resulted. I've decided that I deserve to date again some day, but I need to feel good about myself first.

Anyone out there feel like they're swimming upstream all the time? With job, kids, body image, and TIME to work it all out?

    Hi: you are in the right place. Here you'll find a lot of friends and maybe a buddy that can live near you and together make exercises. Men, men, men. Not all are the same. I married with a person that rip my bank and tried to kill me and my/his son and I was the bad person. I remarried; 23 years ago. He is my best friend; not because he was my friend before. I never met him before; but because he always stand beside me all the time. For my children he is his father. He gave/give them a great life. His father is alive; but never gave a cent of child support. We all live very happy since 23 years ago and counting. emoticon emoticon

    I used to, now with the program here I have learned the different strokes needed to swim in these ever changing waters. Rely on the team leaders and people who have been on here a while, at least while you are learning your strokes. Take care and good luck.
