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.

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.

Thank you so much for your message. I am really in a place where I just don't know what to do anymore... I am struggling with weight for more than 20 years now and I always always failed.. I kept gaining and gaining and I tried everything... I am so close of giving up at this point :(

Anyway, thank you for your message. Means a lot
