“You give up on what you need to be doing because you forget that you're worth it. This is why most people aren't leading exemplary lives...You have to believe in yourself so much that you're willing to do what's uncomfortable, time-consuming, inconvenient, and on occasion seemingly impossible. When you don't believe in yourself this much, pretend.”

Thanks for checking in on me! I hope your progress is continuing on South Beach! Life has been busy. I have an Aunt who recently went on Hospice and trying to be there for her has really sapped my energy, both physically and emotionally. She is close by so at least I'm able to stay on track by eating at home and can fit exercise in in short bursts here and there throughout the day. Prayers for her comfort and our peace of mind would be appreciated. emoticon
