Being heavy as a young teen didn't really bother me......until I got teased by the so-called "popular people" that looked like they hadn't eaten in decades. Even after losing almost 26lbs, their teaseing still continued forever.

what i want is to live the rest of my 20's like it should be and not worrying about what other people think about me especially what i look like and how big i am. i want to be happy and everyone else here too
I'm determined to not give up or throw in the towel this time when there are road blocks and speed bumps throughout all of the journey i can't give in because weight loss is not just a one day thing. it takes time. you have to continue for the rest of your life. 2010 the year I shed the rest of this weight off and find the newer, healthier, happier me - through daily motivation, exercise and better nutrition.

    Hi Gina emoticon welcome to the Prison Break Lovers team. I apologize for taking so long to welcome you, but I haven't been very active lately due to my crazy schedule. I love that Mark Twain quote, I truly believe in that. Unfortunately, there are people that will put others down just to try to boost themselves up. I actually feel kind of (and I did say kind of) sorry for them, because that's the only way to boost their self esteem. People like us, well we always have eachother, and what is better then having positive friends that are always willing to support and encourage one another when we need it. That's what SP is all about, it pulls all of us beautiful people together to help one another get to that healthy part of life that we so desire to be at.

    As Lori, said down there emoticon emoticon , the team is pretty slow right now, but hopefully that will all change once the show returns, and I can't wait. I'm in love with Michael. So who is your man on the show?
