The chances are slim to none of me getting to 180 by year's end, which is only 5 days away, (woohoo, who else is gonna get wasted?) but I'm not that worried about that. It's been a great year! I'm truly grateful for the chance to share what in the past was a very personal struggle with all of you. I haven't weighed in for the week but I'm confident that before the year's out I'll be 198 or less. May not sound that great but considering I started the year at 238: that's about 40 pounds down (someone check my math).
Will I get there...I have no doubt. I've changed my relationship with food and that's what did me in in the past. It's not perfect and I don't think it ever will be, but it's better. I look at food more like the fuel it is that my powers my days and helps me shape my world.
I like to believe we're all works in progress and until we no longer draw breath we can change what we see on the canvas before us. So to all of my Sparkbuds and you avid reader, I wish the very best in 2010. May we all get closer or completely crush those goals that have eluded us.

Or to put it another way, I put down what grandma picked up.
It doesn't have to be this way, seriously. Good luck!
