    I found this to be very encouraging! I think you mentioned all the things that we struggle with on a weight loss journey and told us that those are normal. And ways to move through them. I really appreciated this!

    When I began my weight-loss journey, I had 88 lbs. to lose. Now I have 66 more to go. Every point hit home so hard. I’m at one of those plateaus right now and wanting to give up. Renewed strength! Thank you, Amanda!

    I especially appreciated the tip on changing emotionally. So often I have heard of how great I would feel and was angry when that didn’t happen so soon after I would start a diet. Thankful that it’s not just me!

      YES! You will still be the same person! Sure other aspects of your life might change, but if you’re not a happy person now, you won’t be magically be happy when you lose weight.
