Be kind to yourself.
Little flower, you are stronger than you can possibly imagine.
I'm back and still taking baby steps to move myself forward. I'm slowly figuring things out.
At my heaviest, I weighed 290 lbs. I've lost and gained back the same weight over and over again. Right now I'm climbing out of a hole that left me near the starting point again on my weight loss path, but I've never given up trying to be healthy.
---continually build up my exercise time
---get rid of aspartame from my diet and replace it with stevia
---choose fresh unprocessed food when possible
---stretch everyday for mobility and flexibility
---be aggressively thankful for everything
I am a 40-ish, happily divorced Texan who is shy, quirky, spiritual, and working on being a more confident me. I am getting more comfortable with who I am, accepting my faults and celebrating my successes. I do medical billing for a living and I work in a cubicle, which fits my personality perfectly because I am an introvert and can listen to the radio all day (I listen to local talk radio, various programs on Truth Frequency Network, Wretched Radio, or music on my mp3 player.) I have a very simple life, which I am thankful for, I've had enough drama in my past to last me forever so simple is good.
I love to read anything from self-help books to Stephen King. I am interested in politics and social issues. I love animals and have a chocolate lab and a calico cat. Life can be so difficult and ugly so I appreciate funny people who can find the humor in things and don't take themselves too seriously. I love scary movies (the gorier the better!), playing on Facebook, listening to political/religious podcasts, listening to music (all kinds but classic rock is my favorite), working sudoku and crossword puzzles, playing solitaire and mah-jong, and watching tv (I like The Walking Dead, Big Brother and Survivor, Orange is the New Black, Ray Donovan, and a lot of others.)
