You are an inspiration Susie! Way to stay on the curvy, back and forth, uneven path that can be oh so frustrating! I love the saying "You are never a failure until you quit trying." It can be a brutal road at times but this site is filled with wonderful people who understand and love to support each other! In addition to meditation, visualization and belief in one's self, I do find that blogging is an excellent tool for staying accountable. Sharing with others-the trials and triumphs-is very powerful! I started my own blog almost 1 year ago and while I poke a lot of fun at myself, I've shared Before photos and After photos about every 6-8 weeks. Wow, what a reality check and great way to stay true to the journey and the process. I've learned so much-about myself, why I've been on a diet roller coaster for over 30 years, and how to stop this insanity. I feel pretty darn blessed to now be as healthy as I am and to be in the best shape of my life at 56 years old. Every blog entry shares part of the process through humor and insight and perhaps you will find some helpful tidbits as well. These are a couple of links to 2 that seem apropos. I hope you will stay in touch and if you want to follow my blog, just leave a comment on any of my pages and I will keep you up-to-date. I aim for at least one entry a week with photo updates once every 8 weeks. There are a couple of ladies who have posted Before/After photos as well, can be found under the Fierce Resources tab. Community support is awesome and priceless! Best wishes Susie!
