New inspiration

Hi All!!!

Wow...thank you so much for your emails! They really make my day!! I am so glad that so many of you have been inspired by my book. Trust me, it wasn't easy to write some of the things that are in the book, but to read the hundreds of emails saying how my story has inspired each and every one of you...then it was ALL worth it!!

Inspiration..that's a great word! What inspires me?....your joke!!!, my want for a life filled with experiences and joy, positive people in my life that add to my life, the look in a child's eye when I tell them they will be "OK" because I will motivate them about diet and exercise, to see those same children come back to me a month later and tell me they lost 5 pounds!!!, my mother and father...neither of them had an easy life and yet they are the most positive people I have ever met!!...and lastly but certainly not family and friends they I find joy in every single day!!!

So tell me what inspires you???

I'll leave you with a quote that I love:

Decide what you want
Determine steps to get there
Belive in yourself
Motivate yourself
Ask for help
Think positive!!!

Get inspired today!!!!!

Keep me posted!

Warmly, Susan

Inspiration on a gloomy Friday in NYC...

Hi All!!!

It's one of those really super gloomy days in NYC. I'm SOOO not looking forward to the smells of the subway today! For all you people outside of NYC, you'll just have to come and visit to get exactly what I'm saying. I will PERSONALLY bring you from uptown to downtown on the Number 3!!! LOLO!!

Anyway ladies and gentlemen...I have officially stopped obsessing about food. WOW...that came out easy..only took me about 15 years to be able to say that!!!! LOLO! Seriously, I'm done obsessing about food. I KNOW what is good for me. I have FINALLY realized that all my emotions which can still keep me stuck in a bad place with food has NEVER gotten me anywhere. I'm happier for this descision.

Now I realize that I can focus on what may be bothering me and deal with it...instead of using food, or not using food but OBSESSING about using food (the latter being worse sometimes!) to calm me down. So now I say to myself, "Hey, Susan, food is never going to make you feel better in the long run. Besides, [fill in the blank of the food, and quantity, you are about to it] will not help me get to my goals in life. Sure, maybe I'll feel numb for a little bit, but after that feeling goes away I'll have a few pounds to get off and then I'll be back in place I don't want to be. " I have literally said that to myself for the past 5 months or so, and I have to tell you all...IT WORKS!

So there you have it...on a gloomy NYC day I have finally been able to get to the next level. I hope you can join me!!!

Keep me posted on how you are all doing!!! Thank you for the amazing emails you all have been sending me. You are MY inspiration!!!

Warmly, Susan :)
