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.

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.

    Thank you for welcoming me to the crocheter's group. You're very ambitious to aim for your high school weight. I wouldn't even try. Best of luck to you on your journey. Be gentle with yourself.

    I have to come to terms with the fact that my mother has been diagnosed with dementia. And trust that my father can care for her. They live in the Middle of the country and I live on the West Coast. It's a stressful time with the virus for this to happen. I will be okay. Thank you for caring.

    "And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

    And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. " ~ Kitty O'Meara
