Again, very inspirational, but WTF on the piano? She is the star of this video, not the overeager percussionist at the keyboard. Report

You must be very proud of your self!! Report
Thank you, Beth, for sharing your journey with us. I can so relate to what you said about how it feels to have people see me lose weight and then regain it. That and other feelings of failure about my declining health due to obesity left me depressed and resigned, just as you mentioned!
I had a moment of clarity when I fell for the 5th time in 2 years. That fall coincided with letting go of some victimization and feeling defective for it.
My attitudes and behavior have changed and all my numbers are trending downward. I am committed to regaining my health and keeping, to changing my thinking, actions and relationship with food.
I already feel more confident and happy. It feels good to be good to me.

Wow. What an inspiration. Report

Thank-you for sharing your journey. You are a truly courageous woman who, I am sure, will keep your eye on the prize of health and happiness while inspiring others to do the same. I need to remember you when I'm tempted to give in to the "wimpier" side of me. God bless you.
