Putting my own clothes on my back...

I started a dog sitting service in my neighborhood.
This way, I can make money...
once I get up enough (around 800 dollars)...every item in my closet is coming out..
Some to Goodwill, some to be burned.
and I am buying my own clothes.
I will be putting the "clothes on my back" from here on out.
My orientation is for 12 o clock at women's resource..
they will tell me what to expect and when my computer classes begin.
I find also, that many employers like bi lingual receptionists..
so I will be stopping by the library later to sign up for classes.
After that...it's off to the gym so I can keep on heading down the scale.
In the meantime, enjoy this musical interlude...

Hugs and blessings,
Chris out.

This is amazingly real and so darn scary- how close any of us can be to going back to a place that we thought we were free from...
I can feel your determination and your no excuses attitude and it will serve you well. I have tears in my eyes as I witness your fiery strength.
Still praying for you and yours.

I hadn't heard the song you posted here before, but I really like it.

I spent a lot of time looking for something for you for the Thursday post. I did find something, but it wasn't really what I was seeking.

First, let me say that I admire everything that you are doing for you. Second, let me say that when people do things (negative things) in response to the positive changes we are making, usually that is a fear-based response. That person might not understand that they are reacting or making decisions from a place of fear, but they ARE. Things in their world are changing and they are AFRAID. If someone is relating to you differently, maybe that person is afraid that they are going to lose you. The fat you with low self esteem wasn't going anywhere. That woman was predictable. The woman you are now is DEFINITELY NOT.

Do you remember the poor choices you made when you are choosing from a place rooted in fear? Other people choose poorly when they live there, too.

You shouldn't change back to who you were in order to make someone else feel better. Clearly. However, when you understand that they are living in a place of fear (and you know what that looks like), it is possible to bridge the gap. You can offer a lifeline so that the other person can safely cross to a better place... a different reality.

I know that you can do this if it is someone that you love and care about, because you have already traveled this road. Fear has many faces. So does love.

So glad to see you are still here. Wow. I am so thrilled to see your post and how you are still striving for all the power you need to make your life full and keep you in balance. I dropped my weight loss efforts slowly when I went back to work fulltime and the job really sucked. Now I am trying to pick up the threads again. Seeing you are still here makes me feel empowered. Bravo for you!
