    I'm so glad that you didn't exchange that ticket. It really does make me a little sad to think I could've missed out on meeting you.
    I know it's incredibly difficult to be feeling badly about how your body looks on top of how it works but you are a beautiful woman no matter what!
    Here's to 2006 - may it be a year of living with gusto!

    Jenn

    I almost baled at the last minute too. I'm so glad I didn't. And if you put on 50lbs, I have no idea where. You looked great!

    Nico

    I'll toast to a gusto filled 2006, for sure! I'm so glad that the DC infertiles gathering was good for you, and I really hope that 2006 is a better year for you than 2005 was.

    I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself with us, we all really enjoyed meeting you. And you looked pretty stylish yourself, I may add.

    Pixi, I can totally relate, except I was antisocial by nature even before the IF, so I'm familiar with the pre-event dread. I've made a similar resolution to try to force out of my shell and be happy in some sphere of life. Reading Cubbiegirl's posts about happiness really resonated, too. Happy New Year to you ... hope '06 is a great one for you.

    Pixi, I had no idea. I'm so glad that you decided to come! I'll always remember you walking into the lounge and answering "Guess!" when we all asked who you were. You're too much of what the world needs to stay at home.

    Okay, I saw the pictures, and yoouu loooook fabuuuloussss!

    ALTHOUGH, I know what you are saying here-- I won't even address the weight I've gained. I was looking at old photos of me and it was almost awful. And I know that feeling of just wanting to be at home. But I am so happy you went and had a good time!

    Wow... I so relate to everything you wrote about in this post. But if the pics on Jenn's site are any indication, you have nothing to worry about. You're adorable!!

    So glad that you went, and yeah, there is definitely an important lesson to be learned there about living life to the fullest, no matter what. Now if I can only learn that lesson from you! :-)

    I know what you mean about the weight. I also have 40 lbs extra. And not the inclination to do anything about it. Ugh.

    Oh, Pixi... the chat we had at the train station about this has REALLY stuck with me as well. It's also something I've been wanting to blog about, but I need a little more time to process it all. I will say though, that it was oddly comforting to know that we shared similar feelings... especially when I look at you and just see a vibrant beauty... inside and out.

    Echoing others - *nod nod* I understand.

    So glad that you made the jump into the unknown though, it sounds like you had a delightful time.

    The DC gathering sounds great; I'm glad that you were able to experience it. And happy New Year to you, too, Pixi! I hope that 2006 will be a great year for you.

    Dear Pixi, I thought I'd replied to this post already, and now I discover to my shame that I didn't. I'm so glad you decided to go to the gathering. It sounds so wonderful, funny and uplifting.

    As for the weight issues and the social withdrawal, I hear you, and I'm sorry. Our worries tie us up in knots and then we're ashamed to be seen knotted up. Although no else sees that. I, too, saw your pictures, and I think you are beautiful. But I knew that already from your writing and your art.

    There's so much happiness to be had. Let's not close our eyes to the small joys, while we're waiting for the big one to come. Happy New Year, Pixi.

    Lady, you're gorgeous. I hope you've been out and about this week flaunting your lovely self. Post again soon, k? I miss you!

    Kath

    Hoping you're well, my dear.
