    OMG!! # 1 hit too close to home. I have been beating myself up for too long for allowing myself to become what I am. I am glad to see it in writing that I need to throw away the images I have of myself from highschool and start over and accept myself for what I am today. - 7/20/2010 1:42:09 PM

  • What a wonderful list to accomplish. I love the way she breaks it down. Each thing seems so achievable. I've saved it. I think I'll read it every week. - 2/7/2010 3:59:28 PM

  • I can really relate to the walk/run in public. I had surgery 4 weeks ago and since then have been out with both of my crutches on the jogging path, and yesterday I was out with one crutch on the jogging path. Sure, I might look funny out there as a cripple, but I am out there anyways. I might not be fast, but who is with crutches and so soon after surgery? - 1/26/2010 5:31:01 PM

    Great advice. I have just started some sessions with personal trainer, so that makes me keep appointments. She lets me go at my own pace.
    I find I can restrict calories by filling half my plate with vegetables. Didn't realise until recently how fattening fruit is!

  • LOVE this - I really needed to be reminded that there is a measured way to do this - start slowly and build up seems to be the message. I have real hope that this will help me greatly. Thank you. - 1/25/2010 6:40:19 PM
  • I'm with womanofthewind - to successfully lose weight you do need to limit your calories (even when you workout)! I do not mean you should starve yourself - but go for a good, healthy range. - 1/25/2010 5:49:46 PM
