Wow! You look great - and your story and all the others (Jenn's too!) were a major inspiration for me this afternoon! I will visit it again and again! Did you find that journaling made you become obsessed about it? I often worry that if I write it all down I will fall into a bad place.... comments? THANKS!

Kier, think of when you get to re-read your thoughts about your journey when you've reached the destination. You'll be your own inspiration. Hrm. That's pretty good, huh? LOL

Aww thanks you guys. Thanks for reading, and all your sweet comments.

Jen! You're the reason I decided to submit a Success Story! Thanks for the nudge!

Linda, good question. Obsession is a sticky little bit of quicksand. But just being aware that it's possible is probably all you need. If you feel yourself getting too focused on this stuff, it's not too hard to pull away for awhile. Put down the book, the calculators, the charts, and just live for awhile.

The site writing is different. I find I'm way more focused on my subscribers than I am on myself. That feels pretty healthy, really. And the side-effect is that I keep making the right decisions for myself. Not the focus, but a good result. I recommend it.

Hugs and smooches all around, ladies. You rock.

Oh, especially tersiefrog for your comment. Makes you my official new best friend. Of course the camera's too far away to record the laugh and smile lines...
