I started attending Weight Watchers over 40 yrs. ago, when I was in high school. WOW...that makes me sound really OLD! The closest meeting was 90 miles- one way! My mother and I went together. I think she was doing it more for me than for her. She didn't want me to experience life as a fat person like she had. I guess I wasn't ready back then. In my mid-20's I went back to WW, and took off 75 lb. I didn't recognize the person that I saw in the mirror. I went thru a dramatic physical change, but never really accepted my weight loss emotionally. I'd never had to deal with attention from the opposite sex, or jealousy from other women. I didn't even know how to accept a compliment. I gradually gained the weight back. It made me feel safe. Over the years I have lost 50 lb here...75 lb there, but I would always gain it back, +more, of course. I finally get it. Weight loss is not just's mental, and emotional. Even spiritual. I have all of the tools that I need here at SparkPeople, and at my WW meetings. I'm not afraid of failing. I'm not afraid of succeeding! It took me 40 years to get to this place- IT*SNEVER2LATE!!! --------------------------------- *TRIBUTE TO BETTY~* Betty Boop is a legend we grew up with and a lady with class, She can be a cowgirl or princess,quiet or sometimes full of sass.

    I came across your page while on another sparkie's page. I love Betty Boop & just had to follow where she took me. I came only with the intention of copying the betty boop picture; but when I got here, well! I just had to stay & read your page.
    I nearly cried when I read about the difficult time you've had dealing with not only weight issues but the ignorance of other (some) people too.
    I'm so sorry for that. But hey! look at you, you're still here, you're still prepared to fight for what you feel is yours as a right. You're a fighter, Keep going sweetie,
    Many blessings for your present days & those still ahead of you.
    Take care, be patient with yourself, be positive, stay focused & above all else BE HAPPY, you deserve it.
    ((hugs)) Kinky x OOH BOOPY DOOP!
    I see you also like Maralyn, me too!

    Sandy, Thanks for adding me to your friends list. Now you too are on my list.

    It has been so nice for me to have you on the boards. You knew how to reach out and help. I hope I can be as helpful to others as I gain more confidence on the boards. Thank you!!!!

    I too look forward to knowing you better. By the way...we in Canada aren't all that different than you are in the United States. We have much in common.

    thank you so much for the welcome - this is all very new and scary so a friendly voice was nice to hear. I do feel much better knowing others are available to talk to and hear from. Good luck with your program! My mountain doesn't seem so high now. We can all do this together.

    Hi Sandy - thanks for stopping by my page! I actually live around Coralville/North Libery area but work in IC. We're trying to squeeze every last weekend we can out of summer before it is gone, so we watched the Iowa/Ohio game on the "little" screen from outside our camper next to the fire! Maybe this Saturday will be better, and at least we didn't lose to the Cyclones LOL!
