I am beginning to look at new things in my life that I need to work on. I am far from my goal weight, but this is the first time in my 56 years that dealing with my weight issue is not constantly on my mind, hovering over my head like ravenous vulture, screeching at me about what a failure I am. Having regained control over the food, it no longer bosses me around. I am far from a failure. I am a capable warrior. This program has been life changing for me, my husband and both of my parents. Actually, let me rephrase that. This program has been life SAVING for us.
