You've probably noticed the Rocky theme I have going on here. "Rocky," is one of my favorite movies in the whole wide world. I love it because it isn't a story of winning or losing or of being better than someone else. It's about being the best that YOU can be; about setting a goal and being brave enough and strong enough to not let anything get in your way; it's about pushing your limits and knowing that in the end, even if you don't accomplish a task as others expect that you should have, you gave it your very best and no one can take that away from you. This year, I am Rocky.

This year I stop sitting on the periphery of my own life waiting for something great to happen; this year I start creating "fabulosity" in my own life. I could talk lots about the weight I lost and regained and how all that came to pass. I could mope, complain or assign blame, but instead I think I'll just accept responsibility for what I've become over the past two years and for turning it all around again.

I hope that you'll join me again - laugh with me, cry with me, motivate me, keep it real with me - because I doubt that I can make with journey without your support.
