      A Thread So Thin, the third book in the Cobbled Court series, by Marie Bostwick is delightful as the first two were. As a quilter, I love all the parts about the quilt shop, the special relationship of the friends in their Friday night quilting club, and the setting of the story in Connecticut.5/5(5). I am currently overweight for my height (5'1" female, 29 years old). I've never been overweight before, in fact I recovered from Anorexia Nervosa 5 years ago. Even when I was underweight I still wasn't "thin enough" to go outside, swim, buy new clothes. I do have severe generalised anxiety disorder which has played a role in this.

    The first thing that came to my mind is that I am FREE. Free from a voice inside my head that my made the vast majority of my life miserable. We all have these self diminishing voices in our heads whispering ‘Im not pretty enough’, ‘Im not successful enough’ Only .   I am waiting on the book, but when I opened up my Thin Within workbook and I felt a surge of peace wash over me, Gods peace continued as i continued to flip through the pages. Years ago looked at Thin WithIn, but I could not handle my emotional issues so I got into Weigh Down Workshop instead..I have now gained back a lot of weight, been.
