    Hola Everyone!

    I just wanted to say, have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend.
    I'd like you all to do me a favour; no matter what stage you are in your journey, I'd like you to take a moment today to smile and think "I'm amazing, and i'm SO proud of myself."

    If you've lost this week, that's fantastic.

    If you haven't lost this week, that's fine! Keep going, think of everything you've been through up until now.

    If you've only just started, then WOW. You should be proud of yourself for making that first step.

    If you're feeling down about anything, just take a moment.
    Because you are an amazing, wonderful, beautiful individual, with the whole world out there, just waiting for YOU.
    Don't let anyone tell you any different.

    I'm so proud of each and every one of you for deciding to change your lives.
    Well done everyone. :)

    I just had to pop on and say Brittanny i think you are one of the most upbeat, inspiring and motivating person on here.

    I think as you progress with your journey you should consider being a consultant.

    Thank you for your posts,
