Good evening Sandra I hope the email doesn’t wake you. Sadly, I won’t be able to attend tomorrow. However, we are at the half way mark and I wanted to share with you how much I enjoy coming to your group. I find that it gives me the weekly drive to strive to be successful. It has prompted much thought for me and encouraged me to redefine what I thought success would look like. I admit I am still attached to that scale but I’m growing less attached to that number. I hope to ween myself from it but in four weeks it hasn’t happened... but it will ... similar to a child with their security blanket. You are an inspiration on more levels than what you realize. Not only have you guided us to face the food monster and rationalize it for us, through your stories you are encouraging us to be strong on all fronts, don’t accept negative talk from yourself or others and don’t let your gender and age define you. Maybe you didn’t say all that and maybe I’ve read between the lines and your actions too much... I mean all of that in the most positive way. I am so glad I asked my dr to help me and refer me somewhere. Everyone comes into your life for a reason and at the time you really need it. Thank you for shining so bright and being our beacon. May your positive light keep you safe and guide you. Thanks again
