My friends don't believe how much I weigh when I tell them the actual number. That in itself left me uninspired. I always believed I would never have a weight problem. I found out that as you get older, if you don't change your life style to go along with your age, you will be quite surprised. When I got to menopause age it took a total turn and I was not prepared for it.

We are who we are and people love us for who we are. If you trust people they will support you - sometimes it takes a team to win a challenge - so rally up some support!220
When people around me start to emphasize the negative, especially about things they can do nothing about, I'll stop the cycle by saying "I'll put that on my list of things to worry about." It helps put whatever it is into perspective, and lets me focus on whatever is more important to me.
