  • This is a hard one for me. I have goals but fear usually keeps me from sharing them with people in my face to face life. I can do it on the computer, in face to face parts of my life I am timid. - by NELSONDEBRA
  • My family has been so supportive that my daughter checks on me everyday to make sure that I am meeting the goals I set daily!! She pushes me when my Fibro acts up or am tired, reminding me that it is better to work through the pain and she is right. She is also right behind me with my food daily and that is why I do it the day before so she watches out for me too! - by MOMSUE1
