Today is February 26, 2007, and I have been on the challenge for six days with my fellow "Best Life Bunch." This is our first official full week.

It's funny now because it has really sunk in. Last week we were so caught up in all of the action, with the show and living in the moment of "this is really happening to me." The phone calls have slowed down and now it is all on me. I have an amazing amount of support, but part of me is scared to know that people will be watching me closely. The other part of me is okay with that because this is a decision I have made and I can only answer to myself.

I like to create little visuals in my mind to make it through my challenges, like when I am working out. I like to visualize me after losing the weight, walking on stage looking fabulous. I visualize Bob when I am eating—seeing him smiling or giving me a high five for eating my breakfast or making a good food choice. I know this may sound weird, but when I was on that stage I felt a connection with Oprah. I saw it in her eyes that she could feel my struggle, and that she looked at me in a way that said, "You can do this." I take that visual with me to bed at night.

I realize that this is only the beginning, but I WILL DO THIS!

Until later, your Best Life challenger,

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
