Hi Kathryn from KS. Your message tonight, was so close to what I feel too. You have to know there are people out there saying nice and wonderful things about you too. Where there is good there is bad, and where there is doubt there is an answer. Positive can be your friend in need. I prayer for you my friend and wish you the best of luck Siobhan Terryville, CT

Kathryn, Ketosis is a good thing. You want your body to be in a state of Ketosis.

Kathryn, I could not have said it better. The world as we know it is so very biased and prejudiced against people of size. I should know as a person that has two B.S. degrees and tons of experience, but was turned down for job after job when I was in the job market. This was because I was 325lbs. The only thing the employers could see at that time was laziness and sick time being used. They never once saw the person that I am. So to be offended or upset about someone obsessing about a size 6 is understandable. You just hang in there your day is coming and you will soon be on that losing side yourself. Blessings to you as you continue on your journey.

<b>I SAID A PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY~*~ I said a prayer for you today And know God must have heard- I felt the answer in my heart Although He spoke no word I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind, I asked Him to send treasures Of a far more lasting kind, I asked that He'd be near you At the start of each new day, To grant you health and blessings And friends to share your way. I asked for happiness for you In all things great and small, But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.**Hugs**</b>
