I'll be absolutely honest. I'm terrified of running! I've lost 120lbs, and have about another 60lbs to go. It doesn't want to budge lately, so I know I need to kick it up to the next level. So in the spirit of reaching goal, I'd definitely give it a burl should I be lucky enough to win. Thanks for being so generous to your readers, Shauna! :o)

Haha I love the visual of The Mothership dead-heading your neighbour's roses! Enjoy your time together! :o)

This blog came at just the right time for me. I've been on a bit of a mindless binge of late; no excuse other than a bit of boredom. It's definitely better to just go and do something - anything - than to feel all blah about what you ate later. Thanks for the blog, Shauna, and for the pick-me-up! P.S. That's a rather impressive beetroot too! :o)

There is something truly magical about autumn as you sit on your back porch and watch the squirrels scurrying about trying to pilfer all your pecan nuts for their winter stores. They seem rather oblivious to the fact that you may need these particular nuts for the Thanksgiving pies! Since I am full of senseless trivia, do you know that these little buggers eat 1.5 lbs of pecans a week and then bury another 2 lbs? I guess they are preparing for Armageddon! Maybe I have a soft spot for them because we don't have them in Australia, but either way I'll never cease to take delight in the adventures of these little rodents. :o)

The wallowing part struck a note in me today. I was just reading a bloke's blog (he's just lost 150 lbs) and soaking up his words of wisdom. In a nutshell, he said to never belittle any day (even if you have a set back). Always remember how far you have already come. You're stronger, fitter and healthier than you were before! Like you said, you got back on track sooner than you used to be able to! Progress! I'm celebrating my first 50 lbs gone forever, but I still have a long way to go. So I plan on tucking these little seeds of wisdom away for when/if I fall off the wagon again. Awesome blog, Shauna! :o)

Until we work through our issues, the weight will continue to keep rolling back on. It's the one thing I've learnt from this constant battle. I'm not rolling my eyes at you either. I'm cheering you on! You've totally got this!! *hugs!* :o)

"there is so much more to me and life than the size of my jeans"...Perfect, Shauna, just perfect! I'm so happy to read you type that tonight. It really resonated within me! That's definitely a wonderful mantra to embrace for the New Year! :o)

It's not an easy struggle to win. I've been battling it my whole life. But I have to tell you that your blog really does continue to inspire. You haven't given up! You're still determined to get to where you want to be and work through everything, and just as importantly, you're able to touch so many people with your writing. So hang in there, and just keep doing what you know works for YOU! Wishing you lots of peace, strength and love for the New Year! :o)

Feel better soon! I've found that planning is key to my battle..no planning = me wandering aimlessly to the fridge and making some very, very bad choices heh.

Spectacular pics, but you had me at the chip butty! How I miss the old fish & chips shops around Brisbane. I've yet to find anything to compare to them in Texas..but I guess in the long run, that's probably a good thing! You should be super proud of yourself for getting off the couch and spending some quality with your hubby! It looks like you had a bloody brilliant day out! :o)

Well, at least they are being somewhat creative in their approach whilst flattering you at the same time. Think that scrapes by as a silver lining? ;o) Alf Stewart..geez, I haven't thought of him since I left Australia a few years ago. Perfect old bugger to quote though hehe!

Copenhagen is setting a shining example! Seriously, can you imagine how much change we could put into motion if major cities the world over implemented this model! Bloody brilliant! The Onion...ahh, hate to admit it, but my food would be telling me the same thing heh. Definitely the worst relationship in my life, but hopefully I'll find a way to break up with it one day. ;o)

While I love reading your happy-go-lucky blogs, this one in particular really touched me. It takes guts to just put it all out there. You inspire me in more ways than just weight loss. There's nothing harder than digger deeper to face our demons, and I truly applaud you for your positive attitude to just keep truckin' on! You're a truly amazing woman, Shauna! :o)

I'm on SP also. It'd be interesting to see if there is anything you can glean out of the book that you can't access on the website! :o)
