The biggest lesson learned this past year is that loving life, loving the challenges of life and embracing the changes that come with life are just as important as exercise and diet (healthy eating). It is possible to still be unhealthy if you are exercising and eating right, if you are negative and STRESSED out all of the time. Just saying is all!

I stay positive by looking at the beautiful, happy, full of life people I see that are so motivating. I looked at Kirstie Alley, she enjoys life as a larger woman; just makes me smile. Oprah - charges ahead. They embrace life and look good doing it, moreover, they seem to be happy and having fun. I could be upset about my weight, but instead I go forward smiling at the progress I am making. I smile at others, they smile back an I feel phenomenal.
