    Flash 55, Take 49

    Three years had made a difference in her life.
    Her world had changed in ways she had never dreamed.

    Words on a screen had given her the piece of mind
    she needed.

    The friends she had made were priceless.
    They picked her up when she was down and celebrated
    her triumphs.

    Happy 3rd blogging anniversary!

    If you do one, go tell G-Man that you did.


    Today marks my 3rd year of blogging. I cannot imagine my life without it. Blogging gave me the courage to change some things that I really disliked about myself and I'm so grateful for it and all of the amazing friends I have made along the way.

    Here is my first post:

    Wondering How I Got Here....

    Wow, just realizing that life is passing me by and quickly. Seems like just yesterday I was 15. Now I'm approaching middle age! Funny how we become numb to everyday life. Just moving through it but not really living only maintaining.

    I have searched my soul and decided to make some changes in my life. I'm attempting to overcome my obsession with food addiction. I have for years stuffed whatever I wanted into my mouth without fearing the outcome. Now it's time to start being responsible for ME.

    I'm attempting a starvation diet of sorts. I am only eating one meal a day. That meal can consist of whatever I want (still can't tell myself no) only in very small portions. My goal is to become anerexic (of course I'm kidding). It seems to be working. I've lost 14 pounds in 10 days! I'm ecstatic!

    It's truly amazing how things have changed. Thank you all! *wipes away a tear*
