Yes. I wear hijab, alhamdulillah. I have never heard one negative comment here in Wisconsin, mashaAllah. I did live in Germany for almost five years, so that's quite a change for me (I was insulted just about every time I left my apartment while living there, subhanAllah).

Fi aman Allah

ALHAMDULILLAH!!! Its wonderful when the people arround us are so understanding.. Sorry to be rude about the Germany thing, but I totally know the feeling... I stayed with my grandparents for a while, who live on a private RV Ranch in southern Arizona.. They didnt have too much of a problem, but all 50 other elderly people had a HUGE problem.. I didnt think old people could be so cruel... I guess I was wrong.. lol

By the way, the trip was FABULOUS! I walked myself into some first class blisters, but I got some fantastic photos.. I'll post them soon!

Pwah. I got a scale yesterday... I'm afraid to say that I weigh so much that I'm embarassed to even write it here! Which is sickening, because I know that I've been losing weight based on how my clothes feel... InshaAllah I'll stick to my plans and get back to normal!

The first thing that will help you with your weightloss is to accept what you weigh now and not run from it and pretend you didnt see it. lol

i wish i could buy a scale.. but they are so expensive here :/ The one i have to use is a normal scale, not digital,, so i dont feel like i get an accurate reading.. but.. its saturday... i go weigh today.. insha'allah ive dropped that kilo for the week...
ive been working on controling cravings by waiting an hour, and if its still there, then eat 2 bites, or drink 2 oz, or one small (if its smaller than 3 of my pinkies put together) .. its been working out well
