The Most Important Day in My World

I try not to date my vlogs very often so that they can be watched at any time and still have a universal message, but sometimes I do state the date. Today is one of those days. Today is the most important day on the calendar in my world. August 9th is THE DAY for me. It’s not my birthday, it’s not my wedding anniversary, it’s not the birthdays of any of my kids, it’s not my mother’s birthday, it’s not my father’s birthday…but it is the most important day for me. August 9th happens to fall on vlog Wednesday this year, so this is my chance to reflect.

    Your honesty and sharing is such a blessing for those who feel hopeless and in a destructive rut.

    You F’ing nailed it! Love you! I would love to have seen that presentation!!!!!! Your honesty and openness is not TMI. It is necessary to create change! “Coincidences” – no – the universe had plans for you my dear! You give people hope by sharing your success along with your struggles. And the occasional F-bomb never hurt! Looking forward to BLH. Happy Anniversary! <3

    Hi Susan,
    Great vlog. Happy 9th August.
    Ever since I stumbled upon your videos nothing has made more sense than your explanations about my own experiences with food.
    I am a surgeon myself and I am convinced that bariatric surgery is a great mistake but nobody is brave enough to say it. I look forward to seeing scientists prove this and also do something about it.
    In the meantime I am trying to find the strength to commit to bright line eating. Like you say eating is my crutch and it’s scary to give it up. Especially without a different support mechanism. Will definitely be looking at bright line healing. Thanks for the thought provocing vlogs.

    Congrats on 23 years. Also kudos for your successful talk. Good work! Reality says that Caffeine is a drug and will distort your good gut balance. Using the drug companies definition that vitamins are not drugs, you might consider 5 to 15 mg of sublingual B12 for energy and clarity instead of the caffeine. That way you can still honestly say you are drug free. Thank you for the education you share. It is still possible to learn even when one has no money. I have stuck to your program since October ’16 because it is so close to my Candida program (which has even less food choices). The cancer is gone but I have not lost any of the 80 lbs I need to loose. I find myself cheating once per week now. Not gaining but not losing either.

    From your program I learned : to restart my meditation; to start every day with thanks/gratitude,; healthy portion sizes; and that even one person can make a difference. I have no funds to further my education with you but will continue to devour whatever you send me. Thank you!

    I love your approach. I am so in need of something to get this weight off. I signed up for the healing seminar but now I have to work. Will the link work after the seminar? I also heard on one of the emails about a boot camp. How do I get more information about the boot camp. Does the boot camp include the healing webinars also?

      Hi Patty – The links to Susan’s 14-day challenge and the boot camp are on this page => https://brightlineeating.com/start-losing-weight/

      You would sign up for the boot camp and Bright Line Healing separately.

    In your thrust to be honest, I will too… Hate your swearing. I actually would love for you to take that message of change and infuse life in this problematic area as well. Would simply make it easier on the ears.

    That being said, I still agree with the core of your vision and what is visible about your love to deliver others from various bondages. Truly a blessing.

    Happy August 9th! It’s happy for me as well. A small milestone…my birthday.

    Best to you and Thank you for your transparency and joy!

    Susan, again thank you for being a real person. I don’t work the bright line eating program, I have cut done on the flour and sugar. I watch your blog because I am in recovery for alcohol and listing to you for me is some what like going to an AA meeting. I will be 60 this coming October and your blog this week helped me to reflect back over my life to try to find if I ever had a moment of clarity. I was first introduced to AA in 1984, but I knew nothing about alcoholism, and fact I had never heard of a drunk all I knew is that when i went to sign the bottom of my time card my hands were shaking so much I couldn’t write my name. I will be 4 years sober September 18th, and sense following you and trying just a little I have lost 20lbs. Thanks for this weeks blog and happy 23rd year.

    Susan, Your message of victory is so important to so many who struggle with addiction of any kind. It can surely bring hope to them in the battle for life itself. As a result of watching my little friend’s pain living with alchoholic parents, I made a commitment to myself to never enter the snare that smoking, drinking, drugs lays for people . I did not, however, realize that sugar could be addictive so have been cleaning the sugar and flour out of my life. It would not have happened if I had not started the BLE program. I am grateful to be free of that trap but know I must battle it at every turn in life. It has helped me understand others caught in any form of addition as leaving sugar and flour out of my life is no breeze! Thank you for getting the message out!
    Please leave that nasty word out of your blogs. You have a tremendous, expressive vocabulary to draw from without it!!

    Ah Susan – every Wed, no matter what, I know I’m going to be smiling from ear to ear because of your vlog. (Sometimes I cry – the Priority made me cry – but good tears!) Today was no different. CONGRATS on the big 2-3 birthday! I just celebrated 11 years of sobriety from alcohol and drugs on July 23rd and you are right – that day is the BIGGEST day of my life because everything that I have gained and lost is a direct result of July 23rd, 2006. I can’t wait to hear about Bright Line Healing and hear what the ‘question’ is that levels you out. I no longer attend meetings because of some of the religious overtones (I’m in the South and in my experiences, organized religion tends to be a bit more dominant in many meetings) – my religion is LOVE. And I LOVE you and all that you stand for, all of us who you STAND UP FOR, and for bringing obesity and the overweight epidemics to the front lines. You have helped me realize that sugar and flour do not serve me – just as alcohol and drugs never served me. I can relish in the peace that BLE has given me. And you are the conduit to that peace. Your energy is what we need. You were called to do this and it shows. Thank you for all that you are and congratulations on your REAL birth-day! All of us addicts know what that re-BIRTH feels like!

    Dear dear Susan. I have said this before. It takes a lot to impress me, and you always do. There is not much I admire more than honesty, intelligence, and a willingness to courageously grow. You have all of this in spades. I don’t know if I could stand up and tell the world I had been a drug addict and prostitute. (I haven’t, but still) You make it possible for anyone to move into the light from almost anyplace they are and for this I wish you the best there is. This is truly the work of spirit in the world.

Loved all the information about the brain! Mays so much sense. Lent your book to my daughter and within 5 days, she was all in, doing the bright line eating! Its a life saver for her. So thank you so very much. Looking forward to the webinar and seeing your solution to the 12 steps. I have been down that road, and have worked them numerous times. I am leading a group for women with issues with addiction.

    I’m reading your book, Bright Line Eating, so it’s lovely to meet you through your vlog now. I enjoy your honesty. My fear is that you have had a much bigger struggle than I have and so I’m worried that you have more of a reason/drive to ‘get better’ than I do as a result of not having your kind of history. Does that make sense?! I hope I can do this! I’m sure as hell gonna try! #sugaraddict

Down 1/4 of the initial goal heading confidently toward bmi perfection from 247.5, blood numbers are improved. Official results next week. Keep up the vblogs because they help support my journey.

    Oh man, Susan, you drive me nuts!
    Another tempting offering? I so do want to do the inner work. I have a friend who keeps talking about the 12 steps and how she feels so free after only having completed four steps.
    But we have just started the Positive Psychology course, and I am afraid I cannot take all of this in.
    Arrghhh. You drive me nuts!
    I love the course. I have just read the first two chapters of the Primer in Positive Psychology, and am happy at goal weight, all thanks to you.
    So indebted.
    I guess my question is: If I do not sign up for Bright Line Healing now, when is my next chance to do so?

    You are crazy. You must work such long hours. Just crazy. I love you. You are awesome. But work a little less. So you give me space to work a little more intense on what’s on offer and then take the next step, all in sequence and relaxation and space to think inbetween.

    Ok, I guess it is time to take charge of my own life – haha!

    Thanks for this wonderful vlog. I so look forward to the time when we all go to parties and noone is raising an eyebrow or trying to talk us into eating or drinking something we have just politely declined. What a beautiful world of belonging whilst being ourselves. Thank you!

I never looked back at sugar and flour but still struggle with portions once those 10 pounds I wanted to remove went away. I keep on truckin. This Vlog delighted me, as most of all of them do. I will “see” you on the webinar. Congrats, love, and thanks from a fellow Positive Psychology teacher and BLE-er. HUGS!

    Dear Susan,
    I adore you and your program and you have changed my life.. I watch and rewatch your blogs often and sorry but this was a swing and a miss. It was a lot about Susan and I kept waiting for it to tie into everyone else but in my opinion it never did.
    The part that I most want to mention was how you went to a meeting as a drug and alcohol user and as you say, never drank or used again after that meeting . While that is amazing for you, I wish you had acknowledged that it is by no means the norm. As you know, people struggle for a lifetime to stop using drugs or drinking. You made it sound like it was so easy, which I imagine was not your intention, but as a mental health practitioner, I took issue with it.
    I say this with much respect and gratitude to you.

    Dearest Susan,
    Happy Anniversary! I want you to know that I am immensely grateful for your Bright Line Eating program . Since February, I have lost almost fifty pounds! I love you, and can’t thank you enough. I even started a support group at my church for people with food issues. Many of the participants have also tried your program because of my success, and they are having success , as well! But I wanted to let you know that I can’t show some of your videos at church, because of the profanity in them! I wanted to make you aware of this. It seems to me that you could reach more people if you left that out. Many of us don’t want our kids and grandkids hearing that type of language , so we have to make sure they aren’t around when we watch you! I know there are a lot of people who talk like that, but there are also a lot of us who don’t . I just wanted to share this with you. Thanks again for everything!

    I am sad that you are so flippant about your swearing. I understand that this is a habit that needs to be broken like any other destructive habit – and you’ve broken a lot and are helping others break a lot of habits. Unfortunately, by basically excusing yourself from that one and saying, “if you don’t like it you can leave” you are alienating a whole section of society. please rethink that particular aspect of your life.

    I want to meet you some day and I will. I am 75 years old. I have been told many times that I need to write a book. DO NOT like to write. I like to talk, but I am putting this is writing NOW. I will start writing on August 19th; pen to paper. God has been good to me. A Master’s Degree with only one year of college in 1959!!! AND a Licensed Clinical Social Worker without ever even having a course in psychology and a successful private practice psychotherapist for over 30 years. BTW I weigh less TODAY than I have in 29 years. Have lost 33 pounds since March after 14-Day Boot Camp and BLE. First success EVER in my life in 60 YEARS!!! Bless you and your prophetic message.

    Your work is amazing and has been missing in the weight loss industry. Healthy living is the focus with you. Thank you so much for your expertise.

    Susan, you are truly an extraordinary human. Thank you so much for persevering through your journey because you would not be who you are today without it and you wouldn’t have touched so many so deeply! Thanks, prayers and love, Jacque

    I still get your emails for webinars, but I no longer get the emails for the weekly blogs. I really miss them. Can you hook me up?

    So wonderful to know I am connected with someone who is real. The question ‘How are you?’ is a very lame question for many people who really don’t care how I am. Most times I don’t answer the question when asked. Thank you Susan!
