Turkey Day!

Well guys...I made it through! How did you all do? We had the usual..turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce etc. It was my four year anniversary of losing the weight so it had special signficiance to me this year. I remember my first week at the Rice House...I asked if I could particpate in the turkey dinner that everyone else was having at the Rice House. Since it was my first week I was supposed to stay on rice and fruit..but come was Thanksgiving!!! Well, the nutritionist said something to me that I will always remember, "There will be other Thanksgivings Susan." And there have been!!!!

So I enjoyed myself with my family and friends. Had a little of this and a little of that. We went on a hike near my brother's house before having a little dessert...and then it was over. No food fireworks, no food drama. All is good and I couldn't be happier!!!

December 26th is coming around the corner and soon I'll be seeing CONFESSIONS OF A CARB QUEEN in all the bookstores!! Whoa! What a journey!!! And so it will continue this journey of mine!

Write to me and let me know how your thanksgiving went!!! The best tip I could give you all is to accept who you are where ever you are. If you like yourself....everyone will also like you!!!!!

Write to me your holiday tip!!

Warmly, Susan

Update! weight is great! Up and down the same 20 pounds since I've been back! I've combined the Rice House philosophy of lower sodium with the freedom of Weight Watchers. I have had so many changes in my life this past year and having structure has been the main thing that has helped me through it all!! Don't get me hasn't been a bed of roses!! It's been very tough at times! But I keep up with the exercise and I keep positive. I reach out to my support system, when needed. I know that I, and only I, create my destiny!!! You can do the same for your life!!

Keep me posted!! Your emails mean the world to me!!!

Warmly, Susan

Hello Everyone!!!

I started my journey at the Rice Clinic on November 23, 2003. It has been four years since I've started my emotional and physical transformation. There have been ups and downs, sideways and backways. I'M STILL STANDING and going strong!!!! Things that have happened to me...things that I've worked for...have been incredible. It's been incredibly difficult and at times still is difficult. However, this is my life and I'm choosing to live it with gusto!! As I have always said...."You have ONE life to's YOUR choice on how you choose to live it!"

More exciting news....My book, CONFESSIONS OF A CARB QUEEN IS COMING OUT THIS DECEMBER 26, 2007!!! I can't believe it! So much has happened, to list it all would take...a book! LOLO! Seriously though, I can't believe how my journey has progressed. Amazing, scary, profound, funny and joyful. So many different things have gone on that have brought me to this place, November 2007.

I'm back to stay! I want to hear from you all!!!

Warmly, Susan
