What People Say About Our Weight Loss Community
This is a great place
for motivation, support, ideas, etc. I have literally dieted 38 of my
48 years and I HAVE LEARNED MORE IN THE SIX WEEKS SINCE I JOINED THIS
GROUP than ever before. Oh, I knew all there was to know about calories,
fat grams, carbs, etc. I could write my own book. What I have learned....actually,
what I am learning is about self-image, positive attitude, etc. I knew
all the physical stuff but here I am learning about the mental part of
weight loss. I am finding out that is an essential part of any weight
Anne, I don't know what
to say except thank you. I really appreciate seeing that you are truly
a real person, and not some figment of this technology world we live in!
Your spirit for life is very uplifting and encouraging. If there was a
"selfless, giving, loving, kind, understanding, and patient person"
of the year (okay life) award I know several people here who would be
Anne, You truly are
an inspiration to all of us and I thank God for you and your honesty in
business. I get so sick hearing all the scams advertized on TV to take
a pill and take it off while you sleep, without changing what you eat,
etc, etc...who are they kidding? Thanks again for always being there and
so supportive, good or bad - I don't think anyone is afraid to report
because we know there is no condemnation in your words -only encouragement
to keep on keepin' on. To know you is to love you and I amongst others
feel like I know you and truly I am a Blessedgirl to be part of this program..
Anne, thanks so much
for your comments! I'm really having a great time getting to know everyone
and ENJOYING this journey, not focusing solely on the destination. EVERYONE
on this forum has such a wonderful story and there's so much inspiration.
Your plans are so livable and support is so available ...
Anne, You're an amazing
woman, and you mean so much to all of us. It is nice to get to "know"
you. You're a shining example to all of us who struggle with our day to
day problems in life. Thank you for everything.
Anne, Thanks so much
for this forum. I would not be making the progress I am without it. I
look forward to posting my weight each week and getting yours and others
feedback. I'm eating so good now compared to what I had been and I'm not
feeling starved or stressed about eating over a daily allowance. If I'm
hungry, I just try to eat something healthy. I can't tell you how good
it feels to not be bulging out of my clothes anymore. I am so confident
and excited knowing that I will get my weight down to the 180/170 range
where it belongs and that I will be able to maintain it there. The worst
part for me about being so overweight is that I feel like I'm walking
around with a sign saying that I have no self-discipline. At work, I'm
in a management position and I'm embarrassed about how I look and that
its obvious to everyone that I lack discipline. At home my lack
of discipline is a lousy example to my kids. Anyway, I've struggled with
my weight all my life and I just wanted to thank you. You're doing a great
service for so many.
Anne, I personally appreciate
all that you do for not just myself but for all the others here who depend
so much on your support. I never imagined such a support system, actually
had a hard time believing it would be as it advertised...and here I am
actually getting to know you via internet...thank God for the internet...
Bless you my friend...
We're all better people
because of you Anne. I talk about you at least once a day to my friends
This place feels like
a kind of sisterhood (and brotherhood...don't want to leave out the guys!)
and much of that is attributable to YOU. Thank you for all you do...you
are so important to each and every one of us.
I have a ton of people
begging me to tell them what plan I'm on. I actually printed up little
business cards with the web information on it so I can just hand it to
them! I personally feel that Anne and her knowledge has helped me to regain
control of my body and in turn the rest of my life!
Anne, I had a very strong
inkling you were the kind of person you are from the day I first signed
on as a member, judging both by your quick personal response and by the
fact that you did not charge a fortune for your diet plans, as I know
many others would have. Everything I have learnt about you since has only
served to reinforce that first impression. You are
Thank you Anne, for
the supportive comments. It really helps me to strive to reach my goals!
I'm just so happy to be out of the obese range again. Gastric Bypass surgery
over 4 years ago helped me to get there, but my issues with food never
left. Your program and the fellowship that is on the forum, is paramount
to successful weight loss. Thank you for having this program. I am determined
to become a healthy weight so that I may live long and to my potential.
Anne, thank you so much
for your encouragement and I wish I knew your magic formula because no
one has been able to get through to me before like this community and
you have. I am so grateful.
Hi Anne, First let me
introduce myself and say I am making great progress, making new friends,
coming out of a 8 month period of near despair (had my son diagnosed w/biopolar
after 14 years, 2 car wrecks and gave up a music ministry that I was a
conductor for 7 years.) I have found more kindness and charity in this
group than in my 35 year "walk of faith." You must be one special,
talented lady and all I can humbly say is thank you for having initiated
this weight loss forum! GBY! If you ever have public speaking engagements
in my area than Count Me In!
