Thanks Janet, I appreciate that, geez for 32 years I have struggled with weight and losing over 100 pounds doesnt come without some determination, I am so proud of the fact that now if I cheat I can get back on plan, and lets face it we are all going to cheat at some point in life, it is how you roll with it after, I could give up like I used to do and eat til the cows some home, or get right back at it and back to the gym.

Amber love yourself and do what feels right for YOU, don't you dare worry about what others think, this is a life long struggle and just WHO said you have to take it off fast, enjoy yourself...we only go round once.

OMG Angela I need you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did it I called this man I think is my father!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called the number I have carried since high school and he answered and we talked for 1 hour 18 minutes! He pulled out all his service records he is going to the VA hospital so he had them out, he was in Vietnam twice, but btween 1967-1970 he was home, and I was born in 68, he has a picture of me and my Mom when I was 2 that my aunt gave him, and he even remebered seeing a pic of me and my Mom in the paper years ago in 1996 at a Kentucky Derby race, the more we talked the more he came to the same conclusions, and when we hung up he told me he is going to call me and give my email to his son, who is 39 to email me pics. He agreed to have a DNA test! OMG I am shaking crying, I better go to the gym!!! His son's wife had several miscarriages so he has no grandchildren he is really anxious to know if Bobby could be his grandson!!!!

Give me strength I owe this all to Angela so many years of not knowing!!!!

Amber

Ugh I just got home from gym and I called my aunt, I called the number and he answered, and I was like is this the Joe that was engaged to Sandy xx, 42 years ago, and he said yes, so I said I have been carrying you name and number for years since high school when I saw a picture of you in my Grandma's things. I said I have suspected because of the pic and my aunt and Gram that you might be my Dad, my Mom has always said that some other guy was my Dad, he was married and had 3 kids and she liked him, she was engaged to this guy Joe, and he really loved her and was broken hearted when she called it off. WHen I said all that he said is this Amber? And I was like yes, then he said how my aunt and Gram and Grandpa came to his wedding, they all really liked him and his family he said I still have a picture of you and your Mom when you were a baby, so we talked and talked he is so nice and was so kind on the phone and as we talked it was becoming clear that the possibilty was so great so when we ended he said I dont have a computer, and I dont believe in email, but I will have my son email you and he has some heart problems he is going in for, and when they are resolved we will get together to do the test!!! I can buy a test on line for $79 you do a swab of each persons mouth and put it in a bag and the lab sends back the results, so I am going to order it!!! He has lived in the same place in Lancaster where I grew up all those years, since he got back from his final time overseas in the service. He said Amber, if your Mom would have told me I would have claimed you and raised you, and certainly if you are I want you in my family, I cant stop crying!!!!!!! My aunt loved him, she said Amber I am 98% sure it is him, but I dont want you to get upset if it isnt! I gotta go change and get my son to bed, cause if Angela calls I gotta be ready and I swear I am hugging that woman through the phone!

OMG girls, I know I am reeling, I spoke to Angela tonight she totally gets it, that I am bawling, my head is spinning, I am so mixed up, but so excited, she is a doll! And Martini, it was you mentioning the candy from your Dad that brought it up, so tell Daddy Martini that that chocolate was worth every penny, but stop easting it now, LOL

He was so nice, so kind and patient and thoughtful and so wonderful I just want it to be him! I know I have to prepare for it not to be him,but in my heart I feel it is.

I swear this board is life changing, all these incredible friends that give you strength and are just there for you, it means the world to me!!! The elliptical never went so fast tonight, I never have insomnia but I might tonight!!!

If you ate the whole pack, Martini, carbs would be the least of your concerns! The Poo Fairy will have 'asploded like she wanted to repaint your bathroom.

Amber!!

How amazing! You're so strong to call him. That musta taken brass balls. At least it is out of your head and into reality. How awesome that bobby might have a new grandpa and you a new father who sounds like a very cool guy. Can't wait for the DNA results to come in. Funny how things work out sometimes.


omggggggggg angela, repainting via maltital poo fairy. I just about peed myself on that one.

p.s. that lady is a nasty cow and I want to slap that smugness off her face. I guess some people have so little inner self worth they need to feel superior to others and be hurtful so they can feel good about themselves.
