I had someone say something to me the other day and it made me cry. They said "you were my inspiration". Now, it wasn't you were my inspiration and that's how I did this it was you WERE my inspiration as in used to be, you know, before you failed at this weight loss, lap band thing. Sigh. It hurt, I hurt. I have plenty of guilt and anger towards myself for failing. I am not happy where I am. I am not happy with the weight I've regained. I know a lot of people were rooting for me and I let them down but that hurt.


  1. Colleen - we are all human! We all make mistakes. You still are an inspiration This life takes a toll on all of us from time to time. It is your next move that matters. Pull yourself up, brush off, and try again. Its approaching september for new beginnings! You are a wonderful person, mom, friend. Please dont be so hard on yourself. This isnt a failure and it doesnt define you as a person at all!

  2. Who would say that to you?! Talk about unnecessary guilt. Good grief. You're not working on this to save the world, just to take care of yourself. That makes me so mad. I've never found guilt to be a helpful motivator!

  3. I can't log into my google account, but it's me, Ange. Don't let someone's ignorance bring you down. You are amazing and are doing everything you can to take care of you and your family. There is no formula for taking care of your health. There are ups and downs. You have been focused on other areas of your health for a while, and someone who can say that to you just doesn't get that part of your life at all. Chin up, girl! Chin up!!!
