Keep going, because you're really starting to get somewhere and the eating is good. Don't cut back on the "necessary" eating, or you might just feel the urge to snack or pick at food, or perhaps get an issue related to low electrolytes.
You're making some decent progress and I want you to be proud of yourself because you've earned it and i'm proud of you too. I can sense there is some all round progress in the way you express and feel about yourself as well, and I think some positive weight loss and a new job has been no doubt contributing so the person I have believed you were capable of being is slowly starting to emerge and I'm happy for you.
I know you can continue to make good things continue to happen, because I believe in you and his year especially you've had tough things to deal with, expressed some hard things too, that took courage and heart and beauty to speak about and a few recriminations about missed opportunities to give your goals more urgency, but I have largely been proud of you for making small positive emotional, mental and physical steps
I don't care whether it takes you 2 years or 10 years, to finally get to a good place in your mind and body, speed is not the essence, but quality of improvement is and the more you keep making gradual progress all the round, the less likely you are to be down on yourself and feel destructive or second-rate, becasue you are NOT second rate and never have been.
2012 is a year for you ot continue to make good and continue to show a bit of the strength, heart and beauty that has gotten you to be able to come here, talk about hard things and prove you haven't given up on yourself.
I never gave up on you, because certain things showed me you had the ability to improve and you could develop that through knowledge and experience and to be here now when you could have given up and walked away from us, is a pretty darn good thing Jena and showed me something I hoped I could see in you, which was a little bit of fight; the fight for your future happiness and wellbeing.
I'm sending you a BIG HUG
because I am so darned proud of you sweetheart, for showing that little bit of something needed to progress and believe and when you want to be you can be a really beautiful person to communicate with and you've been a good source of support and humanity to others and it has always been appreciated.
So have a good Christmas, keep smiling, chin up, be strong and keep believing, because if you want to be, you can in the future be amazing and someone to be looked up to and admired and together you and this community, can help to shape a better and brighter future for you and the kind of happiness and sense of worth you've deserved all your life, but have never really known.
Finally it's slowly coming together for you and i'm really happy for you
You're doing GREAT misses really, really GREAT.
