Once and For All!

6/14/13 Day 1 - I've been overweight since the age of 11. I gained 25 pounds as a kid in the 5th grade when my parents divorced. 7 years of stress and unhappiness followed and overeating became a lifelong habit and way to cure stress and numb pain...so I thought. All along it only created more. At the age of 51, I reached my highest weight ever. Thankfully at 53, I have lost 22 pounds but it is just he beginning. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy ...

A positive attitude
may not solve all your problems,
but it will annoy enough people
to make it worth the effort.

We are soft and feminine, pretty and stylish.
We are strong in heart. We keep going on and on.
We persevere...
Women are dependable, loving, and caring.
We keep our men going, when times are rough,
We are very tough.

There are all kinds of beautiful women in the world...
All shapes and sizes, different personalities.
We make up a good part of the world,
We go through a lot.
We get the worst end..of breakups and heartache.
We get the emotional baggage, the periods, the cramps,
But that is only a small fraction of who we are.

We can be anyone we want! We're independent.
We can be doctors, lawyers, teachers,
Journalists, surgeons, accountants, or soldiers.
The world is our oyster, and we are the pearls.
Love fills our souls...we are so full of life.

We shine like diamonds in the night sky.
We may rise and fall, but through it all,
We stand up tall.
