    WOW!!!! You are amazing! I remember taking a Speech class in college. I was never even half as confident as you. I would sway and uhmmm my way through. You are a true inspiration. Your speech was fabulous! The Twinkie thing... I do not understand why people need to be so mean. But Karma is a mysterious thing and it does seem to always come back around.

Keep up your amazing progress! emoticon

  I just love your speech. You are a beautiful person and I love your personality. I love your confidence. You have a way of speaking that gets to one's soul. I am confident that you will lose the weight. We all fall off the wagon. The key is to get back on track right away. Start now. You are right, positive thinking and surrounding yourself with supportive people is key.Good luck to you.

    I loved loved loved your speach! You are amazing. Keep up the good work!

PS... You are not losing this weight! You are dropping it. Saying you are losing something is telling yourself deep in your brain that you want to find it again.

Drop that weight baby! You can do this!

    Loved the part of the speech I got to hear. It got about halfway through, and then jumped back to the beginning. Tried fast forwarding (twice), but the same thing happened.

You're really inspiring!

    What an amazing and inspirational video, and what a great job you did speaking before your class. You were moving and inspiring without being all emo (when you certainly could have - I know I would have been . . .), you stayed on point, your topic was interesting throughout - no lagging - I give you an A+ for that portion of it. I give you an A++ for being so honest and lovely and talented before and after the speech you gave.

I would love to add you as a friend so that I can stay tuned for more videos on inspiration and motivation! You have a true gift and you are going to be a success in all that you do.

I am clawing my way back - I have discovered some health issues which clear up the whole question, "I'm trying so hard, why haven't I lost an ounce??" - but getting back up has been trying. It's hearing motivational can-do's (and "did-do's") like this that hopefully will get me back on track.

Thank you for sharing this and I look forward to more coming from you!

    Hello. I came across this vlog by accident today and I must say you are super inspiring. I am so sorry to hear about the Twinkie story. I don't know if I could have handled that kind of abuse. But, 75 lbs is an amazing weight loss. You are motivated, you are strong, and you have all the tools you need. Good luck on your journey and I can't wait to hear more from you.

    Thank you for that. Sometimes we just need others to show us that we aren't alone and that we can do it with the help and support of others in the same boat.

Great speech. Keep up the great work. You WILL succeed.
