I've been in a personal struggle with myself and my life over the past couple years or so. I found a whole different me after losing weight. Then I found my old self again(who I really loathe) when I gained it all back. It has made me feel like such an unworthy incredible loser, weak, lazy, no self-control, etc., etc.

Anyways, I just read an article about Kirstie Alley, how she had lost a tremendous amount of weight, then gained it all back. She's 3 years older than I am, a beautiful lady, and she's found the motivation to get back on track with her health. I always felt alone in my struggle, that no one else could possibly know the feelings of failure that I know. But I know that isn't true. So I need to grab hold of my bootstraps, pick myself back up out of the mud and get with it.

I figure if she can face her failure head-on and turn it around again, then so can I. :)
