Rebekah,
I have beeen reading both of your blogs for awhile now, but this is my first time commenting. So, I guess what I'm doing is coming out of the closet to say that I am not just a blog stalker anymore, LOL! I already know a lot about you, so I figured that I should tell you a little about me. I am 35 years old, I have been married for almost 17 years and we have two sons that are 10 and 13 years old. I was diagnosed with type 1 autoimmune Diabetes when I was 27 years old. I live 24/7 attached to an insulin pump. It's way better than shots, but since I am being honest...it kinda sucks! I also have Parkinson's Disease which I take three pills a day for. Yeah...that also kinda sucks, but it is what it is! I have struggled with my weight for the last few years. I am 5 foot 8 and I currently weigh about 219 lbs. I had surgery a week and a half ago(Darn girl stuff!) and my weight at admission was 222. It is the most I have ever weighed in my life. Just a year and a half ago, I weighed 179. I was happy with that weight and fit into a size 10/12 very comfortably. I really liked that! This week I had to buy 2 pairs of size 18 jeans. I know that if I don't take control of my eating, my size will just keep going up and up. So, I have recommitted to living a healthier lifestyle. I know I can do it again. I just want to KEEP IT OFF THIS TIME!!! I am an emotional eater and I go for the food when I feel sad. I need to learn to turn to God when I am feeling sad and not food! Food is not my friend. Sure...I need to eat to live, but I have been LIVING TO EAT! I am putting my foot down! I have lost three pounds since my surgery(...in all fairness, they did remove a few parts!) and once I can exercise again, I hope to lose more. Mainly, I just wanted to thank you for putting yourself out there the way that you have. You have inspired me to do better and get healthier. BTW, If we were friends in real life, I think we would be great friends! If you want to read my blog, e-mail me at Evonne97@comcast(dot)net with your e-mail adddress and I will send an invite. Keep dancin', Girl!!!
Hugs,
Evonne

Firm, me too... used them, maybe 5 times? Good will yeah! ALCOHOL BOOOOO! I've decided the one reason I can't lose weight

ROUND UP THE COWBOYS!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!

I've been trying to "feed my skinny person within" and it is helping me to visualise how much "she" needs, and realising that all the extra food on my plate actually feeds the fat me, which I shouldn't do. I need to starve that fat me, so she'll DIE! LOL, well, even though that sounds really sadistic, I hope you get what I mean. I love myself, I really do. Just not this tummy and cottage cheesy thighs. They can die. I'd be happy :) THANK YOU for the video- made my day!!!

LOL, okay, I stopped mid sentence there when I heard the cowboy comment & couldn't stop laughing! SO FUNNY! What I was saying: Beer in fridge = bad idea. It's like having a chocolate cake in the house - impossible for me. I don't keep sweets in the house. I shouldn't keep beer in the house. I need to chat to my DH about that. Have a good one Rebekah!
