So April has arrived, and along with that came much needed rain.
As we are nearing the end of another BLC, I have decided to look back, and see where I stand in my life at the moment.
I have come to realize that no matter how much you fall down, there is always someone to help you up again.
Friendships are important....and this includes friends you have never met. I meet a wonderful group of friends on this BLC journey. Thank you Mustangs, you rock.
And finally, the number on the scale may be important, but its also the little things around you, that make your healthy journey worthwhile. ie saying no to that slice of cake, drinking that glass of water, not because you have to, but because you want to, or like me fitting into a smaller size jeans.
I could post a whole lot more, but then again everyone's journey is different.

My dearest Bronwyn
I write this letter to encourage you. I know deep down you have a longing to lose weight. I also know that, if you put your mind to it, you can.
I want you to repeat those words everyday.....I Know I CAN. Promise me you will do that.
What I love about you is your smile, you willingless to help others. I want you to love yourself just for being you.
Remember, you can't expect others to love you, if you don't love yourself first.
Love you, and I know you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

I look at the scale, and I wonder, will the numbers ever make me happy. Will the number ever give me hope…..or will they just remind me of what damage I have done to myself and my body.
I currently weigh 132.6kg, which if you do a conversion is almost 300lbs. I have been watching the Biggest Loser via YouTube, and think to myself; is that what I look like? Is that what people see, when they look at me? A person with no prospect; or hope for the future. Yes, it can be very daunting at first, but then, when I watch more episodes, I realize that if they can do it, so can I.
Its time for me to stop feeling sorry for myself, to distance myself from the negative people, who say I will never do it , surround myself with positive people, and find my positive attitude It’s time for me to get moving.
I look at the scales, and I know the answer to the above question…….Yes, the number will make me happy, but I need to put in the effort, otherwise it will just be a bad reminder.
