Thanks, Broken & Healed — and thanks for sharing your story also. I tried it for a week… it didn’t go well and was very discouraging. I’ll try, try again!
Walking and talking is an option for me, with my daughter, but I am definitely not motivated to do it at this time. I have just started my first week of counting calories again and it’s not going well. :-( Thanks for sharing your story and for your support!
You seem to have explained my problem exactly — I have a ton of manuscripts that I feel mentally blocked from editing… I finish something, and then I want to start something new, and I have no desire to go back and re-write or edit what I just wrote because I tell myself that I already wrote it the best I could the first time. That’s it, I’m trying your method next. Thank you!
I totally get it — I changed my last name after my step-dad adopted me, and felt like I was finally part of a real family, in part due to the name change. This isn’t something abnormal to want or do, I think you should go ahead and do it! In my state it took $120 and witness in front of a probate judge, that’s it!
Thanks for sharing your story. I hope it gets better like it did for your daughter, she sounds like a strong, beautiful woman. What is this Best Buddies thing you speak of? I haven’t heard of it… is it national penina?
