I think I finally figured out what is stopping me. I have been blogging about it for the past week, but the short version is that despite losing 105 pounds, I continue to "use" food inappropriately to fill voids in my life. I am now approaching my program as one of kicking a habit rather than losing weight and it is working for me so far.

Great topic for discussion and one I think would make for good blog posts. One for which I need to give thought to. I will be back with some of the issues I need to deal with.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

I know that my biggest stumbling block is myself. I get in my own way. Why is it that sometimes I can be so motivated, making great strides and feeling on top of the world and then other times I can't find the motivation to do the things that I know are right for me?

You do this, too. I see it here all the time. One month you are flying high and the next you are struggling.

We tend to share, share, share when we are feeling great and then hide away when we are struggling. Let's change that behavior and explore this together to see if we can't find some answers to what holds us back from our goals.

The answers are inside me, just as they are inside you. Let's try to bring out those answers and excuses and unhealthy messages that we give ourselves, get rid of them and move forward together!
