Life's Ups and Downs

Hey All!

Wow...what a journey this has been! Thank you all so much for your amazing emails. Your support is so inspirational to me!!! Some days are tougher than others, but the key is to KEEP GOING!!!!! Through ALL of the ups and downs...and trust me...we ALL have them!!! Keep yourself positive by keeping yourself around positive people. On that note...I have to share something with you guys....

So, today is my husband's birthday. First, I can't believe that I'm saying the words "my husband!!" That's for a whole other post! we woke up...I gave him his four ties (no place like TJMaxx for a good sale on some great lookin' ties!) and a pair of yoga pants (yes, real men do me!!!)...I went to my Weight Watcher's meeting, which went great!, and when I got home we had some breakfast. We were reading the Sunday newspaper when I turned the page and saw the derriere of a very sexy lady right there in the New York Post, in full color, with her perky tushy in a tiny pair of underwear. I said to my husband jokingly, "How did they get a picture of my tushy?" Without hesitation and with so much love in his eyes my husband responded, "You have a much sexier tushy than she does!" In that moment, I felt so loved and so safe. Whether or not I do or don't have a sexier tushy than the model in the tiny blue underwear in the Sunday New York Post doesn't matter to husband thinks I do and that made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world!

So what I am saying? Keep yourself around positive people who bring out the best in you, who is supportive of your dreams and who only want to lift you up and give you that feeling of conquering the world! YOU DESERVE IT!!!

You guys are my inspiration!!! Keep me posted!!

Warmly, Susan
