My name is Irene Anderson wife of "The Daily Diary Of A Winning Loser" Sean Anderson...A.K.A. My Buddy. Sean has inspired so many, his family, his community and he is now working on the world....We both share a desire to help others we have come along way and we are not done yet...
I started at 345 pounds, and in the last year I have really made a big improvement in my size I went from a size 28 jean to a now size 14 and im not done yet....my goal is to be 140 or like sean says whatever feels right...I am now at 208 and i have about 70 pounds to go.
Like so many other girls, my self-confidence growing up was almost nonexistent. I doubted my abilities, had little faith in my potential and questioned my personal worth. If I achieved good grades, I believed that I was just lucky. Although I made friends easily, I worried that once they got to know me, the friendships wouldn't last. And when things went well, I thought I was just in the right place at the right time. I even rejected praise and compliments.The choices I made reflected my self-image. I ask you to consider two important questions "If you could be, do, or have anything in the world, and you knew it would be impossible to fail, what would you choose? And if you could create your ideal life, what would you dare to dream?"
I imagined having the courage to change my life. I pictured a better life for me and my family. My husband dreams about being an international motivational speaker so that he can inspire people the way he has inspired me. He writes his story to encourage others. So I went on to create a clear visual picture of my new success. I envision myself being thin being able to wear what ever i want and it fit right everywhere. How would it feel and look to see myself in the mirror trying on a size 7....I knew that if I was going to dream, it was important to fill in the details for my five senses. So I went to the store and held up a size 7 in front of the mirror. How would it look and feel? What does size 7 new jeans smell like? I found a picture of a woman in these really amazing jeans that I too would someday wear. I hung the picture up where I could see it every day. It helps to keep the dream alive.
And soon the changes began.. My "impossible dream" has started to become a reality.
I believe that all success begins with spreading your W.I.N.G.S.--believing in your worth, trusting your insight, nurturing yourself, having a goal and devising a personal strategy. And then, even impossible dreams become real.
Cheers to new beginnings,
