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 have finally gotten the courage to take control of my life and make a change.

To have a friend be a friend.

Love your body it is the only one you have.

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 am overweight. I lost 50#, but have come to a stand still. I need to take off an additional 50# for start, but trying to do it in 10# increments I am trying to eat less candy, sweets and have at least 2 vegetables a day and 2 fruit a day. Usually start my day with a yogurt and later eat a healthy lunch, small supper and try not to nibble before meals, especially in the evenings. emoticon .
