The roadbumps of life

Today I was given quite the bump. It's too much to write out all here, but if you're interested, I posted a thread about it on the WeightWatchers.ca forums. The thread is a little backwards because of a glitch in the forum software; it starts on the fifth post down.

It's exhausting to think about it much more but I am feeling better. Whenever someone says there is no support on the forums, I just grit my teeth. Though there are some bad apples, the majority are wonderful and caring people. They all came through for me and there's no words to describe how grateful I am.

Thankfully, I don't feel like drowning my stress with bad food. In fact, it was indirectly because of all this that I made the decision to lose weight way back when. I needed something to focus on. It amazes me sometimes that there's a bright side to everything and that some things happen for a reason.

I'm sending big hugs to you! It sounds like you have a great support system-both online and with your family. I hope all goes well.

oh man.... big hug to you....good for you to bring forth your inner courage - this can have nothing but a positive affect on you and your weight loss/maintenance going forward.

As everyone else would say, it's unfathomable to me that someone would hurt a child in this manner...and having kids makes those feelings 200% stronger...it's my worst fear and I only hope if it ever happens to one of my kids, that they feel comfortable enough to tell me. But I'd probably kill the bastard :)

Again, good for you and a great big hug - you deserve it!!

Hugs. Hugs. More Hugs. I do know what you're going through to some degree... not exactly, but I do know...

What wonderful changes you have made in your life... that you are able to be strong enough to not only manage, not only persevere... but to find a way to thrive and help others instead of falling like a deck of cards (which would be so easy to do).

You. Go. Girl.
