I'm a 33 year old photo lab supervisor who just recently relocated from a small town in North Carolina to the suburbs of Dallas. My fiancee, Hill, who is from the same town I'm from, fell in love with Plano when he lived here 4 years ago, and decided that this is where he would like to settle. I have never been off the East Coast, so I decided to come along with him--I'm not getting any younger and realized that if I'm going to have any adventure I better hop to it, so here I am. The change of scenery has given birth to a change of outlook, and I woke up one day and decided that I'd had enough of fat Sarah. I love her, but I'm ready to let her go and embrace everything that I've always wanted to do but haven't because of fat and fear. Taking control of my life through eating better is probably one of the scariest and most autonomous things I've ever done in my life (sounds sad, but independence and freedom have to start somewhere), but I am excited about finally facing the first internal battle of my adult life. As Richard Rohr, a fabulous theologian says, I am entering my second half of life, and I would like to start that journey with half of the person I carried through my first half of life.

ImLuuvd will not be posting today.. maybe not tomorrow
Thanks so much for letting us know. I am so sorry that she has injured herself--and what a way to do it. I will say an extra prayer for her. I know what you mean about the laughing cry--I do it all the time. When I am injured or worried it is the laughter that makes me feel better, or at least like I can cope. I know some people think its pathological, but it gets me through. Glad to know I'm not the only one! Love you guys, and many hugs to ImLuvvd.

I`m desperate. What should I do?
I so agree with everyone above. Make a deal with him--I'm sure he has a bad habit or too, we all do. Tell him to lose his habit, and then you'll talk about weight loss. Otherwise get rid of him...there are men out there who will love you as you are, I am living proof of that. Nice men, with kind hearts, who are, quite frankly, hot. They really do exist--hold out for one of those!

Fatsecret Dictionary..
At this point in my Fatsecret life, I have heard so many hilarious/inspiring things that I keep forgetting them--I would love it if everyone would share their favorite words/catchphrases heard on Fatsecret to preserve them for posterity...

My favorite today:

Fluct up: v. When the numbers on the scale are on the rise the scale is said to have "Fluct up." This phrase can also apply to dirty little cheaters (ie. myself!) (Amryk's journal
