Down...

I'm feeling a little down today. I'm not losing weight as fast as I'd like too, and I tried on a blouse today and still didn't like the way it fit. I've got such a big tummy to lose! I started a temp job at my son's high school again in a class w/ disabled students. Although the teacher likes me, I'm working with other aids that I feel do not like me and have complained about me. I always greet them cheerfully and try to be a positive uplift there (since everyone seems to hate their job) yet I am feeling a lack of friends again. Then my old friend issue comes into mind which is too heartbreaking for me to even think about.

I know I need to buck up but right now I wish I could crawl back into bed and cry myself to sleep... I'm not feeling very uplifting to anyone today. I'm sure I'll be better another day.

Don't fall back into old habits of basing your emotions/worth on what you perceive others think of you! You have been doing great and are inspiring others with your blog.

Just wanted to let you know that you have your own support team that will cheer you on as you go. I get so excited to hear how well you are doing. God will never take you part way and drop you, you know he walks you through it all. My son's sensea says " a little improvement each day makes a big success in the end. I have to believe that too. It keeps me going. :) Remember we're with you. Have a great day. Joyce
