"Just to let you know where I am coming from and the frustrations throughout my life. I have struggled with my weight my entire life - real chunky kid, was treated mean by other kids due to my weight- then lost weight when I reached 16 years old and felt on top of the world!- gained it back and more - been yo-yo dieting ever since - I've been active off and on, treadmill, running, walking, and last year joined Curves which I found to be wonderful for me.(am still going at least 3 times a week)
Then 4 weeks ago I came upon your website - and let me tell you, I felt as though you knew me! Almost everything I have read and heard applied to me. Your program has given me such an uplift. In that short amount of time I have begun to like myself. I am setting small goals and am doing them!! No more waking up and not liking myself. I have actually journaled my food every day for a week - something I was never able to do in the past(tried Weight Watchers and did not care for it)
I am amazed at how your articles give me hope and a better understanding about me and that I CAN do this for myself! The 3 pillars was an eye-opener for me. Broken down like that - I know I can reach my goals! I want to be a healthy older lady - vibrant and full of life for my kids and grandchildren. (I turned 60 and have 5 grandkids, the oldest 14 years old.)
What has been working well for me, every day I put your articles in a notebook. I go through them and underline all that I need for me. Then every morning I read over all the notes before starting my day. That gives me such a positive boost!
So, all this in response to your email - Whew! this is a long email!! I adore your program. Thank you for this encouraging program. It was just the understanding I needed to get me liking myself again and being proud of me. I now know that I can be a healthy weight and to stop beating myself up mentally. I am still working on finding out the real why. The things I thought were the key turned out not to be. I realized that through your articles. But, that has helped me realize why I was failing- not that I am a failure - I just have not found that real why. I am closer to it though, because I have eliminated the ones I thought were it. So THANK YOU!!!! :-)
Keep up you great work!"
