    Susan, somehow I was knocked off your email list months ago. I’ve been waiting for your book and wondering why I wasn’t getting emails any longer. I signed up for your emails after a while at your website but still did not get any emails. I just heard this past weekend that your book had come out and went to a local Barnes & Noble to buy it. If I had been getting your emails all along I would have known when it came out and would have gladly ordered it. I just signed up again for your emails so hopefully I will continue to get them this time. Thank you for bright line eating. I’ve set my date to begin and, well… we’ll see!

    Bought the Kindle book. Starting the 14-day challenge tomorrow morning. I am a sugar addict with years of physical and psychological challenges, one being morbid obesity despite making some big positive changes in eating and lifestyle. Life has been hard because of my addiction. How much harder can it be to get free of that?

    Hi Susan it’s beyond inspiring to see your honest portrayal and understanding. You communicate very clearly about the importance of truly feeling into those negative moments and having the courage to listen to the voice even if it initially screams out in pain. The choices we make to let go of fear will truly reveal the beauty of life and help transform us to share our gifts. This is what living is all about. I love that your message speaks about the compassion you show to yourself and it has reminded me to do the same on my journey. I am a new member of the BLE group and am so delighted to be part of the supportive community. It’s great to hear your voice and listen to you speaking your truth. I also wish to voice my support of everyone that is experiencing similar issues with over and under eating. With your educational tools and programme I believe I can finally become the masters of my own change. Much love to you and your unstoppable team, Shushu

    Susan–just so you know I’m spreading the word about BLE to my friends and family. I’m confident that those in your community are doing the same thing. You’ll hit whatever number of books you’re meant to sell to take care of those who made the book and BLE happen…and not a book more. That’s the beauty of life. Sometimes we hit the goals we set for ourselves and sometimes God says: “Yes, but…”

    You mentioned in your blog that you wondered if others were also having a hard week whilst you were devastatingly working through an incredible hard time.
    I just wanted to say I was feeling for you during this blog entry. I’m your perfect person to buy your book and am so so grateful that you ve made it so affordable and easy and I so wanted to join straight away. But life got in the way that week…..we chose to put our daughter into an eating disorder unit to support her. I’ve been inspired by your blogs for one year now and was unable to act that week.
    Maybe it was in the stars .
    I hope you get the numbers your aiming for because your message is loud and true.
    Ihopemy daughter oneday gets well enough and finds her own way to live happy healthy and free.
    Kind regards from Australia

    Your message has comforted me over the past two years and the bracelet is only a small token of my appreciation.
    This vlog was a really great topic for me during a very difficult period in my marriage and my life.

    Hi Susan – Sending you a virtual hug! I hope by now your spirit has lifted. Please don’t consider your book a “failure” – I’m guessing that most of the Hay House subscribers are seeing you for the first time. You have planted a seed in the mind of those people who saw the e-mail (just to confirm it was sent on Feb 2 by Patty Gift – I saw it.). The more you can get in front of them the better as repetitive exposure will sink in deeper. For those that are just meeting you, you are asking food addicts and others with weight loss issues to identify that they have a problem and to take action – as you know that is very difficult for someone to do in a day. I’ve been following you for about 8 months and was one of those that bought the book immediately, but I’ve been hearing your message for months and absorbing everything. Even something as easy as buying a book can feel like a huge commitment to someone who is newly coming to terms with their food issues. I KNOW that with TIME – your book will make the bestseller lists. You are passionate, compassionate, and genuine and your program is the real deal for those who really want to get their eating and weight under control. Rock on, Susan!!

    I can’t believe that I found this way of eating. I discovered this when I was getting my car inspected last Friday. I thought okay, I can try 14 days. So I did all the preparation and started on Monday with day one. I am almost done with Day 5 of the 14-day challenge. This is very new to me: I have not cheated, I’ve stayed with the plan and my weight is going down. I’m a 9 on the scale and I keep saying “unstoppable” . THANK YOU! I feel like I ‘ve found a life line.

    I signed up for your 14-day challenge! And a week into the program some unexpected circumstances caught me off guard, I crossed the bright lines, and then it cascaded down from there. I’m feeling terribly discouraged and this is when I tend to give up. But I’m not going to give up this time. I KNOW deep in my bones that your BLE program is the answer I’ve needed for so long. Today I start again with new mercies, I’m going to use the advice you shared today in your vlog, and I will be unstoppable, too.

    Susan, I stopped sugar and flour thanks to you, and this is good enough for me. I am slim and thanks to you, my arthritic pain of many years has disappeared. I am one of your regular followers as I love your sparkling mind and emotional honesty.

    QUESTION: My issue is that I have two close friends who are not on computers and who appear to be quite food addicted, and who carry a lot of weight they could afford to lose. I want them to read your book, and at the same time I find it very tricky for me to tell them to do so. It is not my role. I would be happy to purchase your book for them.. but darn, it might make them pissed off at me! Suggestions? (Remember neither is regularly on computer!) Ideas?

    I know you and your team will make it. Within one tradition I work with (Tibetan Buddhism) your timing is during the absolute toughest time of the year… during Don (with two dots over the “o”) season, just prior to the Tibetan new year, and when any rough “karma” (cause and effect) from the prior year rises up to confront you. The new years day, Feb. 27, I believe, it all shifts. Hang in there…!

    A major sea change may take time to help some folk (like my two friends) realize that a change is actually possible. I have tried to speak with them about your work, and I think for them it is just another area where they might fail themselves and others, so they steer clear.

    I am so much better without sugar and flour thanks to you. Can I possibly help my friends?

    I’m watching for the 2nd time.. You are amazing.. I have been watching your vlogs, too since Oct.2016. just wanting to know what to eat and how BLE worked.. I couldn’t wait till I found out. I’m retired and couldn’t pay. When I saw you were doing 14 day Challenge, I jumped on and I am on my 6th day, and doing great.. losing at least 1/2 to pound a day.. I can’t wait till book comes out so I can see the rest of the story about BLE..I love your weekly support on” knowing you can do this’ and I love the feeling of eating just the right amount of food and not feeling STUFFED,!! First few days on 14 day Challenge, I would go to bed early, just to not eat and in morning, I loved the good feeling of getting on scale!!!! I like your jewelry, maybe you can have some made with “unstoppable” and your “Happy, Thin and Free” theme, and sell them??!! I enjoy listening to you and would love to buy your audio book, so I can listen when I need to reinforce “I can do it”. I can’t wait to get in the Habit of it all.. Sounds amazing.. Thank you Susan.. The word will get out, and I feel your book will sell..!!! Keep the faith.. <3

    Dearest Susan,
    Out of what are always outstanding blogs I think this has got to be the most outstanding I’ve ever seen you do! Not only are your suggestions awesome and so true, but as always your honesty and vulnerability touches my heart and the hearts of many others I’m sure.

    What I want to say to you is something I’ve known for a long time, but was reminded of during the Bright Line healing course which is to trust what is! So often in life what throws us is when things don’t happen the way we think they are going to or should, but one thing I’ve learned is that even more important to getting support and loving ourselves through challenging times is to absolutely insist on keeping an open mind. I’ve seen this happen over and over again in my life and the lives of others that we go through these times of disappointment and fear, if we can own those feelings and fears and let go and come to that place of knowing, deep knowing within our being that our dreams are worthy and that we ourselves are worthy of accomplishing them, then the universe finds a way to bring that which we desire into being although it is often in way we never could have imagined. The important part is to keep an open mind and stay focused on the end result that we desire and to hold that dream within us as if it already has been accomplished. And you of course are well-versed in one of the most important ways of doing this which is gratitude… To have gratitude for what it is we desire as if it has already happened. That is the most powerful prayer and the most powerful means of manifestation, but we need to create the space to allow that to work and that space is created by letting go of the expectations we had as to how it all was supposed to happen.

    I’m sending you so much love and gratitude for all that you’ve taught me and all that bright line eating has brought about in my life. I am grateful for the knowledge and the inspiration and just wanted to tell you or maybe remind you how keeping an open mind is a creative act that serves us always.

    What a timely post for me. We got the surgery date yesterday for my husband’s cancer and I came home and started with NMF. Of course last night I felt horrible about breaking my bright line. In the past two weeks I’ve also been watching the new movies, Hidden Figures and LaLa Land. Today I am walking with some friends and then watching Lion. Today I do have my food planned and I will be keeping my bright line. For what it’s worth, I pre-ordered the new book months ago on Amazon. Thanks SPT for this timely message.

    Wow Susan …
    I salute you! You really put yourself out there and I soooooooo get where you´re coming from I´ve been in that exact same situation (publishing my first book!) and I´ve learned so much from this experience. At the time I didn´t have my bright lines in place at the time – so you can imagine the extra load of self-distructive thoughts that came on top of this core shaking situation.

    I am sure that you´ll find out what the lesson in this is for you. I know that your book will be a bestseller! No doubt about it, but maybe not the way that you thought it would come to you. Somebody said to me once: When you start to lose your faith in your success it means that you´re about to go deeper and have an outstanding breakthrough.

    Or maybe it was too cheap for those who don´t know you yet.

    LOTS OF LOVE!!!!


    A big hug

    I would guess that a lot of the people who need your book are not on the email lists of the companies you mentioned. That was one of the challenges I had … I figured that out when my numbers didn´t look like I was hoping too.

    Poor Girl! You are spreading yourself so thin at the moment. I can hear how tired you are in your voice. Everything seems much blacker when we are so tired and overloaded with so much. Try and rest as much as you can and be kind to yourself. As you say, it doesn’t have to be with food. How is that going to make things better? I had times in my life a few years ago where the problems were out of my control and eating sensibly was the only thing I could control. I found that helped me a lot. I bought your 14 day challenge last week and can’t wait to get started on it. I like that I can do it in my own time. Keep your chin up Susan. You are doing a great job for us all.

    Hi Susan,

    I love what Robin said…. I believe God is behind the prompting of this book.
    The enemy may be trying to confuse and thwart efforts, but we can trust our Heavenly Father who is in control.
    I am asking Him to bring a good result. God does not waste our hurts, that I know for sure.

    Susan, thank you for your authenticity and vulnerability with us. That is so rare and takes a great deal of courage. I tend to be extremely private and do not let people glimpse that in me except for a few trusted and close friends. I can feel your care for us through your commentary and I want to tell you it brings me to tears. I hate the way that sugar and addictive foods control my life and I want freedom so terribly bad. I have to keep getting up and starting over again and again and again. It is exhausting. But I have faith and I know that you’re route and your plan is the way to go and I fully believe that I will see victory and freedom soon. That is why you do what you do and that is why everything will be fine. You are my hope and my strength to begin again. Thank you Susan. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    The discussion about bestseller list got me wondering. Here is what I found:

    Your book is going to get out.

    This topic is so relevant to me. I don’t know why your normal busy life doesn’t stress you this much, but when I’m in stress mode, which has beenmost of the time with certain family sources, not the kind to walk away from but to keep working on. I know I can keep BLE when I have a nice routine to keep, or small disrutpions in my routines. But when I have big disruptions, or when the emotional stresses are high and I can’t retreat, well… that describes most of my days for the last five years at least. So thank you to speaking to this. The whole idea about habits makes sense and works, and when my habits get disrupted, the plain truth is I have to make new adaptations and new habits, and sometimes that’s easy, and other times it’s not. That’s just life.

You gave me faith in myself and a great admiration for you.

    Wow…I wish I could give you a hug. It certainly has been rough. I could see it in your face even before you spoke. I came across your work a few weeks ago when someone mentioned BLE and did some googling. I was so upset that I couldn’t join a boot camp then lo and behold you came out with the 14 day challenge and I scooped it up! I’m on day 4 and loving it. I feel PEACE and I’m sending you love, peace and happy vibes. Thank you for being so open and honest. I turn to food so much when I am stressed and you are such a huge inspiration. If I have a rough day I’ll remember this lesson because you have touched, moved and inspired me so much today. Thank you so much.

    What makes you so wonderful (one of the things) is that you really honor your feelings. You don’t shove them down or stifle your inner voice with food. And that’s why you’re such a good example to me of how to deal with the bumps in the road without abusing food. Thanks for everything you’ve taught us. As an author, I too have felt the disappointment of low sales after getting a book published. I mean, there it is – your baby – so beautiful and perfect – and it’s not flying off the shelves. But I always remember the wise words of an agent who once told me, “No one knows the true value of your work except you. If you’re happy with it, that’s what matters.” Good luck and thanks for staying strong.

    I did buy the book, but I was hesitant, because I don’t really want more things in my house, especially a physical book. I would have preferred an e-book. But I bought it because I wanted to support your wonderful work, helping so many people, and helping me too! May heaven continue to bless you.

    Sounds like this a distressing time for you, and I want you to feel supported and appreciated for everything you and your team have put into developing BLE.

I’m a boot camp grad, still in your research cadre, and I look forward to revisiting the new boot camp with all these extras when life settles down a bit. Thank you!

Thanks for the suggestions for giving yourself some TLC that doesn’t involve bad eating. I’ll have to try them out! I signed up for the 14 day challenge, but work has been so challenging that I haven’t gotten to starting it yet. The book hasn’t come yet, and I am looking forward to that!

I truly hope everything will work out for you. Bright Line Eating will succeed. Just give it more time. I’m spreading the word and everyone can see the result everytime they look at me. Give it time – I know you will succeed. The universe is not wrong. You were supposed to write this book. It will succeed!

    Oh, Susan, thank you for sharing your very tender feelings again with us and your raw emotion, and trusting us enough to know that we will always love you regardless of whatever happens. Because let me assure you that we do love you. You are in my prayers, and I feel that things will ultimately turn out okay and in the best way possible, and in the way it was meant to be. I believe that you are being watched over and blessed, even when it’s hard to recognize. Great big hugs to you.

    Did you realize the very large difference between the COST of your book that you offered through your pre-sale link (to count towards your “best seller” counts,) and the cost from Amazon’s pre-sale order (which you say won’t ‘count’)?? Why would most consumers care if you made the NYT best seller list?! Have you checked the volume of Amazon orders since your publicity release? I would think that lots of people would chose to buy the cheaper book, UNLESS you so discouraged them by asking them NOT to order through Amazon, and then they might even be waiting until the book is available.
    It is also very difficult to figure out if I have already purchased a pre-sale copy of your book! I’m in the current boot camp. Did it come with the large price tag I already paid? Did I already order at Amazon? (I have short-term memory problems.)
    Give up the expectations for a fantasized, possible future: This book will be a HUGELY valuable addition to your current mission & program. I am so sick of watching your HOURS of videos, because I am NOT an auditory learner. I have been dying to have a printed, textual outline of BLE!! I can’t even list all 4 Bright Lines by heart, because I haven’t SEEN a printed list, and everyone just keeps referring to “the 4 Bright Lines.” Of course, I have a concrete idea of how to eat on this program, but the details & the tips & the millions of suggestions keep going in one ear and out the other, and I don’t have enough hours in the day to re-watch all those hours of modules & vlogs.
    Hang in there-the book is going to be worth the effort & work. Just release the best seller fantasy-it’s hurting you. I hope you were really able to allow yourself to enjoy the fantastic fun of crafting your bracelets, and the satisfaction of that creative process. (They’re called “findings.”) Crafting, jewelry making, beading, and paper crafts have been a constant source of joy and satisfaction that enriches my life.

    Dear Susan,
    We love you so much.
    When you express so clearly your need to be comforted, it makes me wish that I could be there for you and give you that loving listening and comfort. I have often found myself wanting to give that to you, partly because I just love to do that for people and am good at it.. but also because, through your vlogs and boot camp videos, I have had a window into your heart and your struggles which you express so clearly and soberly. And I think anytime I see that part of anyone, I yearn so powerfully to help and to give them love. I want you to know that I am here for you in case you ever needed another caring ear or a new energy… I also know it can sometimes come across as odd, a somewhat-stranger offering this, but know that I am full of these things; love and realness and the subtle quest for truth and the path of the Self, and well-practiced tender care and delicate discernment in communication. Just in case you did ever want to reach out to me in a time of needing listening.
    I have so much admiration for you. I see your long road of hard work and commitment to your truth and your wellness, and I really bow to it. Thank you for sharing abundantly from your inner well for us all to benefit from. Thanks for paving the honesty road for us to follow you on.
    A lot of love. And with hope for the sunshine,
    Emily Neblock

    I am a Bright Lifer, and I’m down 90 lbs., at goal, and at 76 years old, happier, thinner, and freer than I’ve ever been in my life. For me, our program is absolutely a gift from God. This is it for me. I only wish everyone who struggles could know the joy this incredible program brings. It’s so worth the effort. The benefits are absolutely amazing and ongoing. My life gets better daily because of all I’m doing and continuing to learn in this program. Knowing what I know now, I’m praying that people who are struggling with food issues and life in general could only know how quickly things can change when they hop on the Bright Line Eating program. This is a forever thing! Nothing like it in the whole world! To think that Susan is offering such an a lot of basic “stuff” for such a price is truly remarkable. I love you Susan, and all my
    Bright Lifer friends. Something wonderful for me; doing this program helps me love EVERYBODY ALL THE TIME! Even though at goal, I’m loving the 14 Day
    Challenge as there is still helpful information in there for me. I learn something every day in this program and all that is offered on a regular basis.

    Your vlog could not have come at a better time. I literally was eating bread and candy for the first time in months. I have lost 80 pounds in the last year and have hit a plateau and am making a major move in my location. This coupled with a thyroid problem has brought me to a stand still of seesawing up and down. Your honesty and openness has helped me to realize I need to take better care of myself. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

    Hi Susan! My prayers are with you and I have no doubt you will reach 20,000!

I would love to join but I want to make sure the meal plan will be adequate enough throughout my pregnancy. Thanks so much!

    Dear Susan,

    I have been following you for quite a while without purchasing anything due to budget constraints, and waiting eagerly for the book release. I bought the 14-day challenge last week because it was such a great value. I know there are others like me who will want the book info if nothing else. I’m a 9 on the susceptibility scale with wildly variable eating habits, manage to stay in a good weight range with extreme exercise and dieting instead of good food habits. I’m getting too old for that and looking forward to something (ultimately) easier to sustain. I’m shocked that early sales did not meet expectations but imagine that when it’s released and people read it, the buzz will have it flying off the shelves. Thanks for all you do.

I already feel so great, so inspired! I listen to all the videos in module one every day, and will do so until I get to module two! I can’t wait for the book to come in the mail! People will catch on! I am so grateful to you and your team for this program…finally I feel like I can do it…Be Happy, Thin and Free or my mantra…Healthy, Fit and Beautiful! Love you too Susan!

    Have you ever considered that God may be giving you a HUGE GIFT by not allowing your book to go Best Seller at this particular season in your life? You marriage needs shoring up and your kids are still young, and perhaps he’s allowing you to be more present for your family to attend to those things that are of even more value. My kids are all teens, and I’m now entering back into my career, thankful He had take a hiatus from it to be me home with my family. The book WILL go worldwide — but maybe not just yet.

    Susan, thank you for sharing this week’s difficult experience. Yes, the would-be saboteur is not the enemy I used to believe it was (Thank for your teaching on the Left Brain Interpreter.) There is a part of me that genuinely needs relief and comfort from the storm of life (and from my demanding personality).,Only this part in my limbic system is mistaken about what comfort really is. (It’s just like a dog that has not been well trained and so behaves in an unruly way. I think often of training my inner dog so that it becomes a faithful companion (and the dog likes this attention). It’s happening gradually, but my former “saboteur” is becoming a trusted confidant, reminding me when I need to give myself some space in a crowded life.. No one else on this plane,t Susan, talks about this stuff the way you do! Thank you!

I am sure there are others like me who can’t commit to the BLE lifestyle, but have a great interest in the science and psychology behind healthy eating. And your accessible way of presenting it. Keep up the great work!

    Hi Susan. You kept the tears back during your wonderful blog – hope to got to let some out afterwards, or when most needed. Tears can be comforting, too! “Coincidentally,” I watched JJ Virgin’s talk/movie with Pedram Shojai last evening. She, too, made it through her unbelievable time (son almost fatally injured in a car accident) because she had AUTOMATIC TOOLS IN PLACE – healthy food/nutrition, gratitude list, calling in support, etc – which got her from “I don’t know if I can do this” to realizing “You will, because you have no choice.” I heard her voice in yours today. Personally, I went out to buy a new gratitude journal – somehow had no pages left – forgave myself for a “slip” following a lot of sad news, am getting back on track, with your help. Thanks for your courage, authenticity, brilliance and love. (And re: lack of sales activity – a lot of people I know are just stunned into inaction, depression, feeling “whacked out”, etc – at the new administration’s and Congress’s daily doings. Whichever side people are on, life is not normal. It’s just not. Keep on keeping on! )

    Thank for for being so honest with your tribe; it benefits us more than I can say! I believe your book WILL be a NYT bestseller, and I know, because I’ve read it! THANK YOU for the honor of being one of your proofreaders!
    This week has been a challenge for me as we have remembered the 14th anniversary of the death of our firstborn son. But as I’ve reached out, I’ve gotten tons of support. You are right that everyone’s stresses are different, and we don’t compare and minimize losses.
    Thanks for the good points about our “parts” crying out for support, and the difference between false comforts and true comforts. God is my true comfort. In John 14:16, 18, Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever…I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” He is the rock I cling to.
    Thanks also for the encouragement to keep to our Bright Lines because they WILL become automatic. I loved it when you said we don’t have to think about squeezing the toothpaste out of the tube!

    I’m sorry to hear you are having a challenging time, and joyful to read and hear how you are staying between the lines while this happens.

    I know you recorded a long vlog today and hearing something about detox is probably not likely with your schedule. “That being said” (lol) this is my issue on day 4. Actually it started day 3. Years ago I was a part of FAA, similar to FA, and I remember detox being pretty intense, I even took off work. I really need a pep talk on this it is so tempting to say forget the challenge, I need to work. I DO remember the breakthrough that happened when the detox passed. A whole new bright world! It seems so far away when I am feeling sick, dizzy, nauseas, achy….spacy…you get the picture.

    I used the search feature on blog page but got nothing on detoxification or detox.

    If anyone knows of a vlog on this subject, I’m ready!

    Thank you

    1. Catherine Feldman

      Shari, Susan does talk about detox. She says that people may feel tired at first and then it passes. In my case, I felt like I had the flu for a few days, and that did pass. She also says that it is important to let oneself rest, or if that is not possible, to go through one’s day as if wearing bunny slippers. Have faith! The process works! So many of us can vouch for that.

      1. Shari

        I remember hearing about bunny slippers, but can’t find the video. I remember the process works and I remember many yrs ago breaking through the detox to see a whole new world. Cravings gone, life clear. I wish I could find a vlog or article on it, I need a pep talk. I took most of day 3 off work . Yesterday I muddled through and it was not as bad. Today, I am working less. Considering time off. The deal is, I’m afraid in this state I may give in if I stay home. I love that there are so many vlogs to listen to. Maybe I’ll listen to enough of them that I run into something about detox. Or maybe the internet has something about sugar detox. I’m concered because last night I didn’t write down my food plan for today; I was feeling beaten and forgot. I automatically weighed food at breakfast, that’s when I remembered I didn’t write it down. Am I slipping?

    I love the 14 day challenge. I’m on day four. I can relate to not being able to meet payroll as a business owner. But we always make it through. Been in business for 30 years so we’re doing something right. Things happen for a reason. In our imperfect world we feel like we can’t control anything. Bright lines eating has done something wonderful for me. It has let me be in control of one thing in my life and that gives me joy. When I wake up the next day and know that I haven’t gained weight and the scale is going down instead of up. I think people will think that the 14 day challenge is too restrictive and too challenging but it is the opposite. It frees you up so you can handle the crappy stuff.

    That was great Susan, this was a really hard week for me and it’s not over yet. Thank you for this reminder. I so agree. I wish I was as strong as you. I’ve been in this a year now and have trouble with .b.l.t’s and snacking, so I’ll have something extra like some pumpkin seeds, apple with cinnamon,or even popcorn. But you’re right, it doesn’t make me feel better for long. Yesterday I got on my knees, and in sobs told Jehovah God my troubles, and a thought came to me, ” it’s in the past, that part’s done, this is now” and I felt a peace come over me and I put one foot in front of me and went on with my day. Then as it happened I had two conversation that helped me get my priorities right….and then I slept a good sleep. Now it’s another day and the hardest part….my resistance to what is….is over, I’ve listened to you and I’m ready to start the day and deal with what comes, just like you said, with a smile on my face and some air in my chest! Hall Aliyah! I bought your 14 day challenge by the way, want to support you in this amazing endeavour you and your team are doing, and look forward to the course, cause I need it!

    Hi Susan, I have already done the 14 day challenge and feel amazing, even though I wasn’t squeaky clean- I’m pretty close! Thank you for BLE, I can’t wait to get my book! If I could do the boot camp I would, just not in the budget. Hang in there, this too shall pass!

    Thank you Susan for this wonderful Vlog. I love and admire your honesty , ability to speak from the heart and relate to all of us. I have been having a very difficult time and wondering why I have been choosing to be miserable, fat and trapped as opposed to happy, thin and free. This VLOG spoke directly to my 10 +++ SS. heart thank you so much.
    I am taking this crazy snow day as a gift from God because I will be present for the live webinar of bright line healing. See you then.

    Would have got the book or a few of them for the $29 for family members,but seemed you can only get it in USA.
    My sister Judy in NSWAustralia is a Bright Liner but couldn’t discuss with her as she on cruise..(so needed the break)
    She is amazing and had put on weight as 1year 10 months ago her sons wife died the day after giving birth to 3rd child.My amazing sister in her 60’s has had to go back to being like you Susan with 3 children (they are all under 5.)!helping her son.So Brightlines as helped her to look after herself again too.
    Thank you

    What an extraordinary vlog. My heart goes out to you Susan. And I have to say that your honesty, openness, compassion and integrity are an absolute inspiration. Not to mention your reminder about automatic habits, finding some way of soothing yourself, finding someone/something to lean on.
    “Sometimes things just happen and sometimes they happen so you can see how strong you are” – yes, yes, and yes.

    Find something to cling to when life gets hard…sounds so simple, doesn’t it? I have certainly been using some of the BLE tools but just realized that the one I rarely use when I’m about to jump off the NMF ledge is right at hand…our FB support group. My master mind group wasn’t available right away the other day and I didn’t even think to post about the stress I was feeling and the crazy pull to eat off plan. And so I jumped off into the food and three days later, am still feeling the effects. Thank you, Susan, for the reminder. And here’s the BIGGEST, warmest, loveliest virtual hug you could possibly imagine…

    Susan, You need to know something- I took your food addiction challenge 18 months ago and I only scored 2 so there wasn’t really much in BLE for me BUT I kept you on my email list all this time because YOU interest me, what you have to say, your enthusiasm and your insights. You are great. I love what you do. If your book numbers were down on release day, even though you were offering FREE copies, do not take this to mean failure. I for one did not accept the offer because as a score 2 I don’t really need it and I left my copy for you to give someone else who DOES need it. I may not be alone in this and it could help explain why the numbers were down.

    Thank you Susan for pointing out the fact of finding comfort some place other than food. A part of my brain knew that, but i was so use to just going to the cabinet when I was down, I just didn’t THINK about it. Thank you for all your hard work getting the word out. I, like so many, have tried so many diets, but you bring it all together with the chemical reaction explained. I always knew the was more than just willpower for the reason kept failing because I’m pretty darn strong-willed! Thank you again for what your doing.
    PS .. the 14 day challenge made it possible to actually try your diet when otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to because I’m very low income.

    Staunch= standing strong;, standing upright; standing for something; holding the line; with as you said the bolstering of your happy supports at your Beck & call, from every realm & posture: curled around a pillow or a phone cord, stretched out in a bubbly warm tub, transported at the movies,;gratefully noticing the habits you built, now building you; the gratitude & Meditation connections you built, now you can lie on them or thrill through them or wrap them around you; the friends & allies, finding value in being staunch for you for a shared good goal; all these seeds & many more you planted, in your body, in your brain, in your neurowisdom & functioning, all the social & grateful goal-devoted world you built & lived, now there for you…

    Staunch as in resolutely holding the fort, the potential breach, staunching the wound; feeling the surround of other fingers, other arms, other determinations joining you to strengthen you, relieve you, provide a place of rest for you while the commitment remains;

    All those books with the strength of their living message,… can rise up and be a bulwark for you, rustling their pages to send back to you the messages & living support you must have infused them with…Maybe you can rest on them!…

    May you rest on the Ocean of G-d’s care & let it buoy you up for a change (?).

    I applaud your bravery & commitment & willingness to show the mortal beneath the armor, I wish you peace & success to replenish.

    Best wishes.

    Dear Susan, my heart goes out to you as I watch your frustration and disappointment. You obviously question yourself, your judgement, your ability to kick this off. Here is what you have going for you: you have a strong point, supported by science and experience, you have the most charming of personalities with the God’s gift to communicate and relay the message, you come across as sincere and caring person, the kind everybody wants to be best friends with. This is what you have going against you: your techie support, team, whatever you call them. Yes, it’s that simple. Read the comments bellow your last week’s blog, What happened to your fcb online show, even today there are problems with ordering. Most people make the purchase when it’s one-click simple, most don’t come back if it doesn’t work. That’s just the way it is. You did your part of the gig, created the product, got people all excited, built the momentum, you did just fine. Now you have to make sure they can actually buy the book, simple and easy. Don’t worry you missed your big moment, it doesn’t matter, the book will sell, because it’s a good book and people need it. Howgh! XXX

    Starfish poem
    Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. 

One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. 

So he began to walk faster to catch up. As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn’t dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean. 

As he got closer he called out, “Good morning! What are you doing?” The young man paused, looked up and replied, “Throwing starfish in the ocean.”
    “I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?” 
”The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don’t throw them in they’ll die.” 

    “But, young man, don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can’t possibly make a difference!” The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the ocean, past the breaking waves and said –

    “It made a difference for that one”

    I feel your heavy strain right now and know how the business needs numbers to survive but I just wanted to say you have made a huge difference to me and my life – I will never be able to pay you back enough. Being on your 8 week program now is changing my life every day for the better and that’s all down to you and your team. I send huge strength, pray and love to you all . This will happen for you I just know it. I’ve bought the book and I’m gonna tweet like crazy. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help get your much needed message out over in the U.K people need you in their lices. Xxx

    Dear sweet strong Susan – your talk was ‘the hug and the push’ that I needed today! Thank you for coming out and naming it what it was: Sh..t and Cr..p all week! I had six weeks of them and like you, I didn’t fall into food. After decades of eating disorder, I became a smart eater 15 years ago ad I so agree with you: Once smart eating becomes a habit, nothing can pull you out of it. However, I made myself stoppable!
    Will order today: are you shipping to Cyprus?

    Thank you so much for your raw transparency xx I passed they some golden arches 2 days ago for the first time in a year – knowing it would in fact plummet my mood (it did) knowing my joints would ache (they do) blah blah – and I needed a buddy like this to give me advice on other ways of coping 🙂 You will get a chuckle – I threw up a bright line that same afternoon and visualised that archy-entrance as the Stranger Things portal with the upside down awaiting me inside – I actually gag a little now when I think of passing thru it lol 🙂 Love the work you’re doing and am happy to add my name to the lucky group who will benefit from this launch 🙂 xx

    Aww Susan I’m sorry you feel down but I want you to know how much you inspire me. You are such a real person, you have gone through experiences that I can identify with and you have a love and desire for helping people. I swore I would never try another diet again. I was going to just live my life unhealthy but then I saw a Facebook ad of your ble plan and I took the plunge and entered the January boot camp and I’m so glad I did. I’m on day 17 and my body feels better and I’ve released 9#. You have changed my life. ❤️

    I’m a bright lifer, and as people see us and ask how we lost weight we will tell them about your book. Your book will be selling for years to come. Slow and steady might be better than all at once. You’ll end up on the Amazon best seller list and that could be more important than the NYT list.

    Susan, I am constantly amazed at how you live your life “out loud” in front of all of us. What a week! Personally I am very surprised that your first day of the launch was not more active. This information is pretty amazing. I tell a lot of friends about it but not sure any of them follow through. I got a good start on my own just from what I learned in the videos you posted last year, and people noticed! And were amazed at how sudden it seemed! But I hit a plateau after losing @25 and coincidentally, it was the holidays and I cut some slack. Up until then I was losing so fast that I almost missed an entire size of clothes that I had put away for when I hoped I might get smaller again. After the holidays, I wasn’t losing anymore (Wasn’t sure what I was doing differently from those first few months, by the way.) and thought the 14 day challenge sounded like a great way to get started again and get some of the information that was not in the videos. Plus the book! What a deal!

    Now I am thinking about those friends – all of whom have told me they are unhappy with their bodies and unhappy that “nothing seems to work” – and all of that. And I am thinking – they all have birthdays and Christmas is coming – why not buy a bunch of books to give them? I already know this works from my limited experience with it. Could I give a better gift to someone I care about who struggles with weight? Probably not. So I just tested the link to make sure it works and now I am going over there to get some books for the people I love who are despairing of ever getting back into a right sized body. I was there last May. I still have a way to go to get mine back, but I know now that it can be done. Thank you for that!

    I hope you make the best seller list. It’s not over yet!

      PS the first phase for me was very successful with ONLY using the bright lines of flour and sugar, and thinking about but not actually writing down the meals for the next day, having no “seconds” and eye-balling what I thought were reasonable quantities. I did allow nuts as a snack at times, and occasionally had a cookie or a piece of cake – like maybe once a week. A big shift was planning ahead because that meant I would go to the store in the evening if the food I meant to eat tomorrow isn’t already in the house. It is interesting to compare how I ate during that time with your handouts in the 14 day challenge. Am weighing food now just to see how close I have been to being able to tell by sight. I may not need to weigh my food but will do so for the full 14 days just to get a stronger feel for the quantities.

        Hi Julie, I did a Boot Camp in October, 2015. I’m down 48 lbs from 170 lbs (I did lose 11 lbs on my own but that took 7 months and the rest I lost after doing the Boot Camp). I weigh 122 lbs and haven’t seen that since I was in my late 20s. I’m now 77 years young and finding Susan Peirce Thompson and Bright Line Eating have been the best things that have happened to me! Susan is the real deal! My cardiologist is thrilled with my blood work. I believe that you will have great success if you continue to weigh your food because it is so easy to either over- or underestimate the correct amounts. I have friends who think I’m crazy for doing that but it’s working for me so I just let them think whatever they want!

    Hi Susan, Hang in there. I’ve been having a down week too. Intense headaches non stop. I bought your course. I was going to buy your book on Amazon, but I love you so much I wanted to give you the money instead. I have been doing no sugar – no flour since September when your first four videos came out. I’ve maintained my weight. I’m glad I have access to the plan and the FAQ now. I haven’t decided if I’m going to weight and measure my food and write it down yet.

    Susan, I believe that you heard the voice of God guide you to write the book because He really cares about the millions of hurting people suffering with food addiction. The Bible says, “I find a law then that when I do good, evil is present.” It is s law; a fact of life. It is the nature of evil to oppose that which is good and this is the saboteur on a much different, global, level. Don’t lose Faith; God is Almighty and this is His plan. You will be victorious! BTW: I had a VERY difficult time getting to the Bright Line Healing webinar. I kept being routed to a wrong page.

    I am proud of you and I am sorry for your struggles…I cling to you!! For some reason, I did not realize the books were on sale and how important the pre-sale was. Maybe that information was hidden behind a 14 day challenge which did not interest me because I am successfully working the program as an oct 2016 boot camper who is 5 lbs from goal weight and also because I realized I was entitled to a free book because I joined bright lifers. However, I believe in this program whole heartedly but most importantly, I believe in you! I will order the book – it is a bargain at any cost!!

    Not a bright line eating member…yet…but I do watch your weekly vlogs because I appreciate your insights.

    I started treatment for Clostridium difficile for the 2nd time this past week, had a 2nd excision for a mole to prevent cells turning into melanoma (still waiting on the 2nd pathology report), and had another procedure to rule out cancer of another form after another screening came back with positive results. So, yes, I can empathize regarding hard weeks.

    I started binging 23 years ago as a way of coping with abuse and trauma. This week I was not perfect. I did eat foods that were poison for me. I literally am allergic to them. I did not eat them in the quantities that would send me to the hospital, but I suffered more than I already was because of the colon bacteria, for which people can end up in the hospital on IV antibiotics. Yet, I did something I wouldn’t have done a year ago. I was able to reach out for assistance. That is something that is very hard for me to do because of my experiences. Trust is not easy.

    Generally speaking, I am looking at a diet without nuts and meat, as well as no sugar, flour, and dairy due to allergies and my body’s inability to digest. Everything else pretty much has to be downed in smoothie form. I have done the no flour, sugar and dairy before, and I am getting used to the no nuts, but I am really struggling with this last curveball. Everything else right now–veggies and fruits–pretty much has to be downed in smoothie form. As you say, though, right foot, left foot. Repeat.

    Thank you for today and each time you have been true to you and spoken honestly of your ups and downs; your vulnerability and strength inspire me.

    The link to the 14 day challenge does not work. Also, could you clarify how the timing works? Is it 14 days of our choosing or does it begin and end on a set date? Does the cost cover shipping the book to Canada and if not, what would that cost be? I’ve been so looking forward to your book, as a bootcamp was not in my budget at this time. The challenge really sweetens the deal, but without these details I am unable to support you though I would love to.

      I’m so sorry that the book isn’t selling as quickly as you hoped. I got the 14 day challenge and am learning so much. It is an amazing deal for all the information I am getting and plus a book. I have shared with a few people about it. The teachings are helping me so much, it seems like someone finally understands what is going on within me. Please know that I am so thankful to have found this site and receive this information. I am feeling much more free and not having the crushing load on me of having think about food choices all day long. I will be trying to think of a way I may be able to spread the word about this. I am hoping so much that you will reach your goal but if not please think of me and know that you work has meant so much to me in just the 10 days since I have started…Forever grateful …Rebecca
