  1. Ok Ladies lets try to set a date for us to get together to exchange clothes...
  2. I was thinking that we could have a clothing exchange a get together would be nice anyone in the area could clean out there to big clothes and we could all meet up and switch them for something that fits...I have a bag of clothes and shoes. Size 8 to 9 in shoes and 22 to 20 in shirts and pants. If anyone is interested hit me up and maybe we could plan something
  3. So instead of feeling sorry for myself I am pissed at myself!!! So all the young girls at work are doing the 30 day squat challenge and I am trying to do it too...well I have to break it up more through out the day to get all of mine done...one of the larger young girls made a comment that it will take me forever....so instead of going with the desire to bounce her head on my desk...just kidding... I told her please use me as an example of how not to let yourself go, its a good thing you are taking charge now and getting back in shape. Yes it will take me longer cause I am slower and have arthritis but I do way better when I am pissed of then when I am feeling sorry for myself... so screw the poor me crap I did this to myself only I can get myself healthy again!!!!
  4. wow all I can say is wow no not all of us have the issues she had I did have the problem of food coming back up but that was because I was eating too much or the wrong type of food. No I did not lose any of my hair. It seems like scare tactics. ITs your life live it the way you want. My usual comment for people who want to tell me how to live is...Tank you for your concern but I got this!

    Can't find my port

    they could not find the right spot last time for me and I said look either stop or find it one or the other cause that crap hurts we took a small break then she found it..I understand your pain...
  19. ok those of u that are interested lets pick a place that would not be too out of the way for all of us...any suggestions?
  20. First and foremost you need to love yourself. You are your worst critic right now...give yourself a break and stop kicking yourself when you are already down.... Now chin up make little changes. Friends come and go so let that one go and find some new ones here. Close that door and move forward. you can do it. I too have very slow progress but you can not get yourself down you have to work thru it and food is our crutch...I had a slip and had to get completely unfilled. Just got refilled yesterday....So I know how you feel I got the are you exercising at all from the doctor.... It hurt but I was able to say yes I have a 5k on Sunday..... you can do this .... Good Luck
  21. yeah refilled so much happier
