Your posting made my day. I've never struggled with weight but I can totally get what you are saying (I have a daughter who is obese and still not ready to make changes). I think you have a stunning face and despite the fact we can't see below the neck, I just get the sense that you exude your new found confidence and that will inspire those around you. I think it's wonderful that you are wearing a necklace and earrings and a little mascara to bring out the natural beauty of your eyes. Your brother's comment was selfish and thoughtless -- but hey, kids are kids and every one of us at some time has thrown out a thoughtless comments. Some of the most beautiful and sexy women I know are slightly overweight, but they know how to dress, how to care for themselves and they demand nothing less than complete respect from their colleagues and friends. I wish you luck on the continuation of your goal -- I have no doubt that you will soon be pairing your shoes, lipstick and handbag to your fabulous, new, healthy body. Thank you for inspiring me today. I'm always amazed at the stamina and fortitude of great women and men on these forums. /Lu
