a picture (gif) (lol) from

I don't like to look weak. I don't like ranting. Thinking and thinking, we lost here 21 people by Medicane (Mediterranean tropical-like cyclones). Homelessness, poverty, disaster and I am angry about this number "74".
I was 69.9 on December 12, 2016. But since that day I gained and couldn't lose as hard as I tried, the times I tried, because other months I did nothing. Dear Doobrie wrote "if you want to be again 94..) I was scared but today I think "why not?" I could fight about the rights of fat people. We have soul and heart, spirit and decency. We are proud, we like music, arts, dance, nice clothes. We are not mountains of flesh . Oh I am sure I could fight and win. But then I remember the times I stayed standing in buses holding heavy bags, because i didn't want to "squeeze" people in their seats, remember my old "new" clothes, the years I had no waist, no neck and square butt (lol).
I can't buy tasty but healthy food the time I need it. I read journals of a dear friend here who cooks for her married son I think (forgive me my lady) and how well she can manage to cook "keto" for her and family members. It is not easy here.I can't beat emotional hunger.
O.K So, it will be: save the "round" people, we are cute and smart, or save the "round" people because we love them, they are cute and smart.
Still don't know what to do because everything you could say, I would say it first to myself (thanks to great help of my FS buddies).

I want to thank you all, all who supported with this little heart, all who took time to write comments and gave me courage, hope and faith to friendship.

I read about the flash flooding in Greece and saw a video of how bad it was. I was very worried about you as the report said it was Athens. I'm glad you're OK. I love the photo of the man tenderly protecting the cat and dog from the disaster ❤️. Have a lovely day Amanda 🙂

Glad you're okay. I have to keep in foods that are 'bad' (shouldn't complain about too much food I know), but have found that fasting helps. You are good at fasting too! At least after a fast you can eat some of the bad stuff, if necessary. You don't whine or whinge - and you could Greece is going through a hell of a time - and has been for several years. Much love

It makes me sad because we can not imagine the full effect unless you've been in such a situation yourself

Prayers to you and your country members!!!! I do understand not everyone can afford to eat healthy. I always did find it ironic at times it's cheaper to eat unhealthy than healthy at times as far as the grocery bill. Before I left weight watchers in the late 1980's I barked at the speaker for getting on people, I told the speaker not everyone can afford to buy super healthy food, back in those days they did not have the discount grocers like today. Lol Amanda you know me just a little bit diva at the mouth when I get angry 🙄 , Enjoy the Holiday, wishing you and family peace
