100 lb. Club - "Butterfly"--- To Everyone at 3FC!!!

* * *This poem reminds me of all the fabulous "Butterflies" I have met at 3FC!* * *


I am like a Butterfly: Right now I am incased in my own little cacoon. I am not very pretty and I seem to have no life in me. If you watch close-- with your help small changes are taking place everyday. When my season comes I will cast off this ugly skin -Like the Butterfly- I will come forth in a gentle manner with all the Colors of Life! I will try to add beauty to this world- do not expect too much for I am only one. But I promise to give you what beauty I have. Maybe when I am free and happy with me, you will feel a little more free?

I had already decided that once I reach and maintain my target weight for 1 year I was going to get a butterfly tatoo, and this just made the decision even more firm in my mind.

Thank you!

Ooo, a butterfly tattoo is a beautiful idea! I may just get one too, right on my tummy, or maybe on my lower back. Imagine that!

Lovely poem!

I like that idea. I too have been thinking about getting a tattoo when I get to Goal. I think I may draw it myself or use one of my mom's drawings so it's more of a personal meaning to me.
