I started this journey a few years ago...and I am heavier now than I have ever been. I am at a crossroads in my life....fitting I think that I woke up this morning on July 4th 2011 and thought I am in bondage that I have put myself in and I want to be FREE. And then that stupid little voice says....nope you can't, oh I have the tools or know what to do, but there is this fear that I won't be able to do it because I am on synthroid. A reason or an excuse. I have the tools, but I am not sure ...

I want to thank you so much for commenting on my recent BLOG that was featured here at Spark People. If in any way I have been able to inspire or motivate you, then I am most pleased. Since reaching my goal weight I have made it a goal to help as many others as I can with their goals to lose weight and get fit.
For me, making new goals (challenges) is what keeps me accountable, maintaining and healthy. It feels awesome!
Many thanks again for your kind words and interest in my BLOG.

Hugs Susan

Barb, Welcome to the month of December! It's a holiday season filled with miracles. It's also the last month of the year to reflect how far you have come from the beginning stages of your journey to the many changes that have been made to live a healthier lifestyle. I am giving you a STANDING OVATION for the goals you have achieved and the progress you continue to make! I am so PROUD of your abilities from turning any obstacle that you have had to face into rewarding experiences! You are a WINNER in all that you do and an INSPIRATION to us all.

With temptations of holiday foods and snacks galore, be sure to remain focused on your December goals that will lead you into the new year with wonderful results.
