I just joined this community yesterday and have read some of the postings and like what I see.
I'm 39, in the NYC area and I'm in the process of opening my own art and custom framing business with my husband of 10 years. I have 2 jobs (one full time and one part time) and in a few weeks I will be leaving both to go into the unknown.
I have always fluctuated with my weight...my lowest size being a 3 and my highest at 14W/16W (which is where I am now). I'm just about getting past hating the size I am now. I don't love it, but to be honest, I am sick and tired of dieting and driving myself nuts about it. I'm just not willing to pay as high a price as I need to get into a size 10 again.
