This year, my self confidence has been at its lowest point in my life, but I am working to bring it back up and to accept myself the way I am, even with my flaws. I'd like to avoid reaching for ...

It has been a tough year full of many things that led me to abandon my healthy habits and gain weight: a long distance move, the death of a family member, and most importantly a battle with an anxiety disorder that I am finally starting to fight to overcome.

Over 10,300 others joined when you did and nearly all of them have quit, so what you have done is just awesome!! What are your goals for your fit and healthy life this coming year?

Read "Shrink Yourself" by Roger Gould, M.D. on dealing with stress and stopping the cycle of regaining pounds.

I just watched footage from the 2007 Kona Ironman & I got chills throughout the show. It's amazing what we can do physically, mentally & spiritually! Next year I'd like to do the PDX marathon, or if I'm not ready for that at least the inaugural half course.

Hope you're doing well & enjoying the fall weather!
