  2. I'm glad your hubby is happy, but, #51 on the Seahawks, was delivered by the doc I work for, and his mother is one of our patients, so, we're just a bit bummed... GO CHARGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. DITTO! I couldn't have said it any better, Duckie girl!

  6. Thank you girls for your kind remarks, it's really nice to be missed, and then remembered! BIG hugs and love to you!! PS: where's my podmate, Dale?
  7. After over a year being here, I started getting posts from this OLD post, how funny is that, and fun, and I'm LOVING it!! It feels good to be here... I really have missed all of you (at least the ones I know) SO much!!!!! More than you even know.... No, she's not going to come out, she hasn't the "cahones" (I know, spelling is wrong HA!) But you get the jest of it... If she was a brave soul, she'd have admitted her wrongs way back when. Happy New Year to you all!!!!

  9. I'm hangin'... at least I'm tryin'..... I love you too!!!
  10. Thank you so much for the encouraging words.... I, in my heart DO feel like things are falling apart.. I know I shouldn't, but, after having been so morbidly obese for SO many years and now to be so close to my goal, and not being able to reach it, is very disappointing and depressing. Yes, I know, I should be feeling incredible because of what I've achieved already, but, you come to a point where you wonder if you're "done", and it hurts my heart to think that I'll remain in the 200's for the rest of my life... I'm really overcome by this.... I take each one of your words of encouragement, from each one of you straight to my innercore, I need it SO desparately, I feel like I'm on the edge.. I've got SO much skin hanging off my body, think about it, 200+ pounds loss, is a LOT of skin, my job is so overwhelming that I can't even get a day off to go shopping with Dale and just have coffee and catch up, let alone have surgery for skin removal...Heck, I've needed a hysterectomy due to uterine prolapse from 6 pregnancies for over a year, and I work in a OB-GYN office, you'd think they'd know!!!!! My gosh, you'd think the end of the world had stopped if I dare ask.... I need a break, ya know? I just need a freakin' break.... I'm sorry girls to be less than the inspiration that some of you think I am, but, I am only me... someone who's been so huge most of her life and I still see myself as that, and I can't anymore.... In MY eyes, I still see that 400 pound woman.... I've told Dale that I wonder if these feelings are because I'm so tired... truly, my job is a hard one, there's lots of TLC that I have to give to pregnant patients, which I love, and women going through menopause, bless their hearts. I'm a nurse because I want to help, and I do just that, I take everyone of them "home" with me, everyday...... I'm just tired..... in a 2 week pay period, I usually hit between 88-90 hours, and I'm not young.... I'm really sorry to ramble, and I'm really sorry to weep on your shoulders, and I'm really sorry to burst any bubbles..... I will bounce back from these feelings, but, right now, I just feel like crap and guess who gets the fallout?! My stapler sisters.... you with the broad shoulders yourselves.... you who know from whence I speak... Thanks girls...
  11. Me too Gina.... 6 months now......... I'm so depressed about this, I just can't even tell you....... my whole life feels like it's falling apart..... just because I'm so stuck I can't even stand it.... Good luck with your workout, I do wish you the very best!!
