I just have to say thank you

When I first started this blog, it was really just for me.  Having done blogs before, let alone knowing the absolute priceless value of writing through emotions, I knew it was something I would do as I walked through one of the most important journeys of my life.  I thought maybe someone would stumble on it and perhaps glean a little something they could take away from my experiences that might help them in their own journeys.  Being morbidly obese - how I detest that label, by the way - and the journey to losing weight is highly personal ... humilitating at times, humbling at others.  My goal has been, though, to do this with the idea of being 100% transparent because I want to heal.  I want to keep growing and I definitely do not want to be another "statistic".  In the process, I have found a voice within me with something to say as well as amazing, wonderful people who support me while going through their own challenges or even just friends in real life that I have been brave enough to share this website with (if you are someone that knows me in person and I have given you a link to my blog just so that you can follow along in my journey, please know it is because I love you and trust you). 

I was looking at one of the reports Blogger gives in terms of who visits my blog and I seriously have visitors from all over the world.  Of course much of the audience comes from the U.S., but I also have lots of visitors from Russia, Ireland, Germany, Canada and  Australia, as well as some from Gambia, Brazil, Indonesia and South Africa.  That is amazing!  So anyway, I just needed to say thank you for your wonderful comments, e-mails and your own awesome blogs that I love reading as much as I do writing my own.

Dear Kathy,

I want to thank YOU for writing this blog! I don't think I've ever heard anyone speak so eloquently about this journey, before. Each time I read it, I feel validated -- I feel like I have a companion on this weight loss/liquid diet journey who truly speaks my language, and who has been to so many of the places I have been. I do not feel so alone. Again, thank you.

You do have a companion on this journey and you are definitely not alone. Thank you for being so positive and supportive as I go on mine ;-)
