Excited To Continue The Journey

I am so excited to be on this next leg of my journey! When I started this blog, I don’t think I ever actually believed that I would get this far, so quickly. I had failed so many times in the past, and I think there was a part of my mind which doubted me from the start.

But, I have remained committed and continued to work hard, and I know that there is just something different about this time around. This is it! Finding a way of life that will work for the rest of my life has payed off tremendously. I now believe that diets simply do not work long term like making permanent changes do… the innumerable stories which I have found online - as well as my own - are proof of that.

If some of you missed my last post, please check it out. I am having a different type of giveaway and am hoping that all of you fabulous folks will show your interest. I am off to take advantage of the very untypically dry weather which is coaxing me from outside my window. A nice long walk sounds fantastic right about now!

*Edit: A very, heartfelt and special thank you to Barb, who has generously offered to match dollar for dollar (within her own area) whatever is raised in the giveaway. I love how my faith in humanity is always lifted this time of year. Truly, Barb, thank you!*


  1. I hope you had a great walk and a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I am excited for you. You so deserve your results.

    Thanks for the supportive words this afternoon. They are appreciated much, as are you.

  3. Your enthusiasm and excitement about the journey is wonderful, and just what I need to hear. I've had a rough couple of days in the eating realm, and feel entirely ready to get back on track!
