    Chris, we all feel the same way at one place or another. You are NOT ALONE!
    The fact that you're acknowledging all of the things you need to do to make the change is a HUGE step. I watched some of you're old vlogs and your motivation is totally inspiring! You've worked so hard & achieved so much already! You should be very proud.
    Learning to love yourself where you are is the hardest thing to do. It's a daily battle, one that gets easier the more you remind yourself of the positive things you are. You are important, you have achieved goals and WILL achieve more, you are a unique individual who influences and impacts others through your daily motivation and achievements. You are a role model just by being here on SP!
    Congrats on all you've overcome and what you're still striving to do!!

    Erin - this is obviously the first time you have ever watched one of Chris' vloggs, yet you speak of him as if you know him. I may be wrong but I'm guessing you don't. Maybe you should try to get to know him before making character assumptions!

    Chris - your friends know this vlog was good for you, keep it up buddy!

    I'm not even sure where to start. For the first 9 minutes of your blog - in fact even a little longer - you seemed so sad. It wasn't until the very end that you smiled and your entire face changed! I get the feeling that you don't smile a lot. You need to decide why that is. I would kill to be able to run a 5K! You should be incredibly proud of yourself. YOU are what is holding you back. I know because I am doing the same thing. Why we sabotage ourselves is beyond me but I know I am working on it. For me it is an impossible living situation. For you, you are unemployed, probably staying with someone else, feeling very alone and pretty much like a loser. I don't see that when I look into your eyes - which you don't do often - make eye contact. Somewhere along the line you started feeling like you were "less than" everyone else. If you can figure out when that started, you may be able to figure out why it is still with you. Something or someone triggered it and don't be surprised if it shocks you that it's someone you care about. I turn things over to God to handle and then turn around and take them right back. I want what I want when I want it and have no patience to wait for Him to act. That is one of my biggest drawbacks.
    Your Tee shirt says, "Biggest Loser" on it. Think about having one made that says,
    "Biggest Winner". People will stop you to ask you what you won and all you have to do is smile and not even answer. It will drive them crazy and make you feel great. Remember, God gave all of us one dream too large so that we can grow into it. Find your dream and grow.

    I feel like you know so many things about yourself that you won't let yourself enjoy..

    I am proud of you.. and I know how hard you are working on this.. I can identify with you on the jealousy issue.. It used to be a large issue.. and because of my life right now, I have reverted back to some of those feelings.. so I understand.

    I feel that something very special is going on with you, also..
    and I am GLAD that you kept this, and posted it.. what you said was deep and profound.

    I believe in you. I believe in you. I believe in you!!

    I have chalkboard paper on my bathroom door that I write my weight and I have written under my current weight - "Love yourself now, but realize that you deserve better."

    Im glad you did this vlog Chris! You do deserve to be happy. Take your time and you will get there!

    Read my blog - "When you feel like you have failed" - you never fail until you quit trying. You are a success as long as you keep trying!
