Now, Jiffypop, you big tease -- you asked us on June 28 in your Chicago thread to tell you who it was each of most wanted to emulate, and then you promised to return and tell us how you three had answered that question. Now, I believe that I was the only one who responded to your question, but I've been waiting and waiting for you to return with an answer nonetheless. Come on, give it up! Put me out of my misery, why don'tcha?! :dizzy:

oh geez... so sorry. i completely forgot!!!! and besides, with aunti mame as a role model, ANYONE would pale in comparison.. [i loved the book.. and the musicals.. rosalind russell was better than lucy as mame]

here's our response: there really isn't ANYONE we want to be like. oh sure, there are aspects of ourselves that we'd like to work on, and there are some shining examples of where we think we would like to go with that, but overall WE'RE HAPPY WITH OURSELVES.

and when you think that each and every one of us went through that awful self-hate thing, we viewed this as a major miracle...

I think you guys hit the nail on the head. I too have reached that blissful state in life when I have realised that actually (most days), I am really happy with who I am......and pssst, tell you a secret, even if I stay this size, I will be happy with who I am, as long as I am fit and exercising.......sure, it would be good to be smaller, but I'm not sure it would significantly change the quality of my life, now that my health is improved and I have found my energy.....
