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. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

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.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful
    If every day we're living
    We stopped to count our blessings
    Like we do on Thanksgiving?
    If every day we took the time
    For gratefully expressing
    Our thankfulness for every joy
    And every little blessing...
    Wouldn't it be wonderful
    If we would just remember
    Gratitude's a year-round thing
    Not only for November!
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Wishing you many blessings to count and many joys to remember
    this Thanksgiving Day and all the days that follow! Your support and
    encouragement have been a real blessing in my journey!
