The Lies We Tell Others...The Lies We Tell Ourselves.

Hi Everyone!!

Wow...such an incredible response to the article! I hope that I was able to answer people's questions and concerns!!

Things are going great. Don't be fooled though....I still struggle every day with food. Some days are better than others. The days that are more challenging are the days that make me stronger.

I keep moving...walking, cleaning my house, doing paperwork and bascially just doing things that I know are good for me. When I feel like I'm moving forward and being productive I feel better about myself. When I feel better about myself I don't want to hurt my body. I try to have as little pity parties for myself as possible.

Below is a few of my items I put on my grateful list this morning! Try putting your own together...you'll be surprised at what you are grateful for!

Grateful List: March 14th

1. My legs and feet work. May sound funny but when I was 468.1 pounds I couldn't walk!
2. I can breath easy.
3. It's a bright sunny beautiful day and I hear birds in the background
4. My dad called me today.
5. I spoke with my sister today and her and her family are doing great!
6. I got responses from some amazing people today and responded to them on time!
7. I said my prayers this morning even though I was running late.
8. My car still runs!!! LOLO!!!

That's just a few of them that I wrote down this morning. I try to do it all during the day to keep life in perspective.

Hope everyone is have a great day!!!! Until next time.....Susan :)

I read your story in Womans World today. WOW! Congratulations. I, myslef have been struggling with my weight since i had my son 3 years ago. I've been stuck at around 280 pounds since then... before then i was at a healthy 160 pounds. Its been a nightmare for me really, struggling with my weight, and i worry about my health constantly. I feel so uncomfortable with my weight and am very unhappy with it. Today, when i read your story... it gave me hope. REAL hope. This diet is something i CAN do.. its something i can stick to. And the "fast" results.. what a dream!! That alone will keep me motivated to stick to it. Anyway.. i just wanted to let you know that reading your story inspired me. I wont be able to afford to go to the rice clinic.. but, i am going to do it at home. Thanks so much for sharing your story and giving people like me hope.

Is this diet typically "safe" to do? I dont have the book and i am going to try it from what Womens World article supplied. I desperately want to lose weight and this diet is something i know i can do. Just want to know if its safe to try it without the book. Dont really have the money to buy it right now. Also, is it ok to take vitamins while on the diet? And is it strictly NO sodium at all? Those are a few things i'm not sure of.. i dont want to mess up this diet at all. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
