Should I just settle? I mean, Topher and I don't get along anymore, but I am so afraid to be alone. It's been so long since I've truly felt loved, appreciated, and wanted, that I crave that. I have nowhere to go when we get divorced. I'm giving up and just think I should settle and give up on a better life. We've been married for eleven years, have three kids, and we are comfortable around each other. Who needs the love and affection when you have that? I just can't get heartbroken again. I feel miserable and lonely, but at least I have someone at home to talk to that isn't one of my kids.

I started at 190! I stopped all pop and most calorie filled beverages. I stopped buying candy at work for snacks, instead I take fruits and veggies. Last night I splurged and had a big fat filled dinner, and still dropped a pound!

I had a genius idea! I need to be held accountable for my dieting. Well, not really dieting, but making better food choices. Today I start detox water, fruit, and veggies. I want to make healthy choices so I can wear a bikini by 2014. Or at least feel comfortable in the shower! My goal is 50lbs. And go!

Dishwasher safe handmade mugs. Who knew? Just use oil based sharpies (available at some craft stores) let sit overnight, place in oven, heat oven to *350, bake for 30 minutes (after the oven reaches the *350 mark), let cool in oven (you may leave oven door open a bit to speed the process!) and there you have your own unique mugs!
