*crickets chirping*

Notice I hadn't posted in a while?

*hangs head*

I fell off the wagon.  Completely.  I didn't count points for almost 3 weeks.  In the madness I gained a few pounds and refused to weigh-in.  I didn't want to admit defeat.  I didn't want to face the fact that I'd been lazy and reverted to the old unhealthy me.

I'm glad to report, though, that I'm back on track, even with a loss!

Today's weigh-in is 189.5.  It's official.  I have lost 20 lbs.

I've been battling my beast of depression, low self-esteem, and pathetic self-worth.  I'm coming out of that, and trying to appreciate the me that others keep telling me they see.

Thank you, my friends, for lifting me up when I'm down.

Thank you for letting us share in your personal journey. Thank you for allowing us to cheer you on when you fall off the wagon - we all fall from time to time. We just aren't all brave enough to admit it. You continue to inspire me, even when you think you aren't - just by being your honest self.

Congratulations Amber. I think you have made enormous progress and I'm not talking about the weight loss. You just exude this new brilliance and confidence and it's contagious.

You never cease to amaze me!
