sorry I haven't written in a while - I think I needed a break, to take stock and re-commit to this whole goal.

I think when I started this blog I hoped that my friends, family and even strangers would somehow come out of the woodwork to push me along. That was wrong, the truth is, I need to find the drive within myself. As I would log on I would get frustrated that no one cared enough to write me, or no one seemed to understand. But I realize now that, this is my fight. No one else's and I need to take it head on. No more excuses, I won't let me health get any worse.

so thank you for your love, support and most of all your comments they really help... soo much. But I need to do this even if no one else is pulling for me. I can't be less of myself. I need to change.

Today I start my new life, not as a fat girl trying to get thin. But a healthy girl just living a healthy life.

That's a great attitude to have. It's always a good idea to refelect on the reason you started your blog in the first place. For me, it was to be accountable and honest with myself. I really wasn't expecting to get comments, but I agree- I love them and they help A LOT!

Well, I just found you, so you can't quit now! I started my blog as a way to stay accountable to myself, and all the comments are just icing on the cake. Mainly my blog is a way for me to stay focused on my goal of getting to 160 lbs. It reminds me every day.

I wish you all the best with your journey. I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks ago & loved that you were incorporated Kashi into your healthy eating as so have I in the last few months.

I've found that my motivation changes as time progresses or other circumstances arise - I think that's normal.

you will absolutely never see yourself through the eyes of others. I for sure know that first hand. I wish my eyes could see what you all see, and I hope you will see what we see. You are gorgeous, and beautiful! Just so you know that each day :-)

Amen! That's all I can say. I knwo taht comments in my blog really help me, but I can't focus on them or else I'm not writing the blog for the right reasons.

Of course, it's important to remember that since it's so nice for you to get them, it's also important for you to give them. It's a great way to bless others on a similar journey.
