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.

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.

I have one daughter. four cats, one cat I'm babysitting, and one feral cat (who just crossed over the rainbow bridge). I like to crochet, knit, and do needle crafts.

Vanessa, I sincerely hope you, your daughter, and your family/friends that join you, have a fantastic Thanksgiving! We will be leaving for vacation ....warmer weather, in two days! WooHoo! We will not be spending time with our daughter and grandkids, and will miss them terribly, but....when we return we will be so ready for Christmas!

Hugs, and I'll be thinking of you! Promise!!!
