    I don't want to make you cry but it is true It was a bit traumatic, but I have grown to really like it. Thanks!

    I also cut my hair off on my sons birthday, just needed a change to get me through it. I took 7 inches off. It looks much better now that I learned to style it.

    I love thrift store shopping!
  8. I am constantly cold, I dress in layers now. It is so much easier to do everything! My husband says I am too boney, my hip bones stick out and my spine. I am shocked when I look in the mirror and sometimes find myself staring at myself saying who is that? My wrinkle (y) skin drives me crazy! I feel pretty darn good!

    Well just look at you! Well done! I just started wearing a small size too. IT took me awhile to convince myself that I was a small! Looking great!

    Too much weight losd

    If I eat healthier I lose weight, if I try and eat more calories I end up with digestive problems. I need to find a diet that will help me stay at the weight I am.
  13. I have stopped talking about it because people's eyes seem to glaze over when I say anything. I have been told I am to thin, my skin is too wrinkled and that my clothes hang off me. My boss even said "are you trying to lose weight?" Anyway, I guess it depends on the person. If it is someone who has been cheering you on, then yes talk about it. As for your mother, I would not bring it up unless she asks. Be the way, you are doing fantastic! Keep up the great work!

    Loss of Son

    Thank-you and my prayers for you as well. My guilt has been unbelievable and I have been put on two medications. I am getting to the point where I can sometimes talk about him without crying.

    Loss of Son

    I haven't been here for a bit, since my son committed suicide on Oct. 9th. I wonder if there is anyone here that can relate to a loss like this? Thanks, Lynda
