I am married with a beautiful daughter that keeps me very busy!! My husband and I work different shifts, which makes quality family time difficult. Dinner time is often rushed or something quick and weekends are a lot of take out or restaurant meals. I want to change all this! I don't want my daughter growing up to be unhealthy and I know that change needs to come from a positive example - ME! I love everything about my life, EXCEPT MY WEIGHT! AND, since I have control over that, I am taking control! I am tired of being tired and fat. It's time for the real - skinny me - to come out and live life to the fullest!!

Phone Apps/ FS etc.
I have an HTC Droid and I LOVE the FS app on it. Never had any issue with it at all!

Dark Circles under my eyes
Avon has a good regenerist cream for eyes too - use it every day and you get some of the puff back and they don't look black or sunken in... its like turning back the hand of time!

bacon vs. turkey bacon
I agree with the real thing or nothing approach with bacon. Since I don't eat it often, at 25 calories a slice, I don't mind eating 3 or 4 slices at breakfast instead of that turkey bacon. Don't get me wrong, turkey as a replacement has its place - but not for my bacon!

Will I ever not FEEL fat??!!!! Do you have this issue or have overcomed it??
LOL @ Trudy - you go girl!! I will never see a size 4 - my body and bone composition will not allow that. I will be happy to get to a size 8, and then I would feel like a 4 I I did the CHAIR TEST last night, and let me tell you, I do have a fat perception of myself... it could have fit two of me in it!!! I still carry myself like that fat size I was, and even dress like it.

So today - I tried something... I wore a very fitting pair of black pants, that I normally wouldn't - and a fitted sweater with a lower cowl neck. So far I have gotten 4 compliments on how I look, and I even feel like I am walking taller and straighter. I even thought I looked good when I looked in the mirror today. (And funny note - it is so much EASIER to walk in heels now than it was 90something pounds ago!!!) I think I need to do some clothes shopping so I can see myself in a more 'thin' light too. Wearing the same baggy stuff isn't helping my attitude toward me at all. I really like myself today!!!!
We are all doing great - now we need to help ourselves feel great!!!!

Thanks again everyone. I know seeing that picture helps me, but I still think I need to shop in the 'fat' stores and yeah, find myself thinking clothes just aren't going to fit. Hopefully soon that will change!!!
