Excellent -- I was wondering if we were going to get an update. :)

Sounds like a great start and I like how you're taking it one step at a time. 2 hrs is a significant amount of time to spend talking to someone. You would've been out of there sooner if you got a bad vibe.

Keep us posted!

Good for you, on all accounts. I like how you said that stepping out of your comfort zone was empowering... I'm going to think on that awhile for many different areas of life. Please keep us posted on how things develop!

It sounds like you could like this guy. If you don't want things to move way to fast, maybe meeting up in a group so that you are not alone. Maybe you can get some friends together and go to a public park to play volley ball or something. you will still get to know him, but it wouldn't be a pressured situation.

yeah it can be hard to let someone down like that and i have a hard time doing it as well. why dont you try saying something like "oh i can tell were gonna be good friends!" or "you know i dont have many guy friends, im glad i met you" ...i dont know its worth a try i guess lol

EVERYONE knows EXACTLY what they NEED to do to be fit, healthy, and slim.
The problem is, nobody does it.

Good on you, girl! What a great job stepping out of your comfort zone, and setting boundaries, too (not seeing the movie). You're brilliant!

Wow, thanks so much for all your encouragement!
My intentions were to lose weight and get back into the dating scene, but now I don't know about that. Being single for the last 4 years has taught me that I don't really need someone to be happy. I kinda like being free and not having to answer to someone else.
The date went pretty good. I set it up that we would meet at the mall in front of the pet store (I'm a die hard animal lover). I was sooo nervous I couldn't even tell you what kind of dogs were in the window-Lol.
We walked up to the food court and had orange julius. We talked for 2 hours. He wanted to go see a movie, but I declined.
I'm really stumped now because I don't want to lead the guy on, but in order to get to know him better I would have to go out with him again. He seems like the type to fall very easily for someone.
I will say this. it was absolutely empowering to step outside of my comfort zone like I did yesterday. I never in a million years thought that I would go through with something like that. I'm a very shy person and all my life I've met my boyfriends through work or other friends.
As I was leaving the mall yesterday I felt like if I could do that; I could do anything.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?
