Thanks for commenting on my blog! I know it may seem like you're starting over, but you're not! You've learned from mistakes and you've proven to yourself that you can do this. WE can do this!

Thank you for the blog love :) You said some super nice things & yes, I am much happier now than I was 50 pounds ago! I've read that people have to realize their life won't change once they lose weight - they won't become happier people - they'll still have the same problems.... but I disagree. I think we do become happier because we've proven how strong & capable we are. We're healthier with each pound we lose so of course we're going to get happier and feel better! What do those people know?!! They need to talk to you & me!

I do appreciate your friendship so very much. I love that we can all be honest here & love our friends with an unconditional love :) Thanks for all of your support!

I am Beautiful when I make lemonade out of lemons. I accept that some days will be harder than others. The rainy days teach me to appreciate the sunshine. They help me grow stronger, wiser, braver and more beautiful."

Good morning friend, an affirmation for you:

"Each morning I will smile at the woman in the mirror instead of scowling. I will be sensitive to her needs and treat her with kindness. I will be proud of her accomplishments and accepting of her faults. I will allow her to be herself. She is me, and I am beautiful. " -Diane Mastromarino
