I have started this community more for myself than for anyone else. However in my thoughts of making this I decided to share my progress with those who wish to join. Posting access is limited to me, the moderator, but all comments are welcome. Recently I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. No it is certainly not the end of the world, and I am one of the lucky ones who does not have to test my blood sugar or take and extra medication to help with this disease. However, with this knowledge I realized that I must make a change within myself. I need and want to make a change, and instead of making some drastic choice to get surgery, or to yo-yo diet, I have decided to make a full life style change. This change will be mostly a physical change to those who see me on regular bases, but in my mind it will be a combination of a physical life style change and inner change. I have decided to take the plunge. I have made myself a promise. To love me for who I am big or small, to find within myself the inner peace that will help me through some of the toughest times along the road that I am about to travel. In making this community, I hope to not only be accountable to myself, but to everyone who joins this community. I hope that maybe my journey will help someone else along the way.
Before you add me to your friends list, there are a few things that I would like you to know.
-This is a journey. My journey. I am not asking you to respond to posts that I make, but if you do, please be kind. There is no room in this community for rude, meaningless, uncalled for, hurtful and degrading remarks. If you make an uncalled for remark or a remark that I consider extremely negative I will ban you from the community. I will not tolerate such behavior!
-I will be posting pictures of myself. Sometimes visuals are a necessity along the way. Again, no negative comments, and if you can't take seeing a full figured woman in a bra and panty, don't join.
-Lastly, I hope that you can find some comfort in yourself. Loving yourself is the most important thing, and I hope I can master that part of my journey.
Ask yourself the same question that I asked myself. Do I need to make a change, and can I do it alone? If you answered yes to the first part and no to the second, than please, add me to your friends list. I am happy to have you along for the ride:)
