    Dearest Susan, I always listen to the Weekly Vlogs out of order and when I have time. I am so moved by your Vlog today. I am an actress. I am 62 years old and 14 years ago I started my own theatre company here in Tucson. I’ve always loved acting. But I was fat. Somewhere along the line, I decided to go ahead and live my dream and continue to act even though I was fat. I wasn’t always cast. But people loved me on stage and I loved being there. I’ve now lost 53 pounds thanks to you and BLE. I feel so much more confident on stage and I am so very grateful and so very happy. I guess I mostly wanted to say: My little fat girl loves your little fat girl and I am so glad your little girl is now able to fly.

    OH absolutely Susan – play full out! you are brilliant! Your data supports that. I love watching where you are going…..

    Besides creating a “movement”, the message along the way needs to be how truly difficult weight loss/maintenance are. Not just because the data supports that, but because it is. Because really competent people don’t get it right and “fail” time and time again. But your program supports that difficulty – creates a community of support, passes along tools that we all find useful, and helps us rewire our brains to make the entire process so much easier. Imagine where all your followers would be if you hadn’t shared this in the beginning! You are a really shining star in the world. Thank you

    This vlog reminded me of a quote from Marianne Williamson….
    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

    Dear Susan, So glad to hear that three more books are coming up. It’s great because t means that if you cannot afford to do a course, you can send up for the book. I know it’s not the same but it’s a great help. Thank you.

    Dear Susan and publisher. I am living in the Netherlands and although not yet fully doing BLE I have been off sugar completely since the start of this year after attempting to stop since 2015. Understanding the BLE theory made me realize that I just cannot make exceptions as I am too high on the susceptibility scale. Experiencing a lot of freedom therefor already and feel confident I will never have to reboot on the sugar side anymore. Now stopping with flour, gluten and milk plus yoghurt, taking things step by step. Really interesting that stopping with milk and yoghurt was so easy. Thank you for writing your very insightful book and love watching the weekly vlog. One thing that does hurt though is the decision not to release the paperback version. I have given the paperback to a few people and now am forced to buy the hard cover for 5 euro extra per book that I want to give to other people. Hope the publisher can release the paperback version sooner than the 4th of June, so we have a choice again and can help more people get started on the BLE journey!! Thank you for all your inspiration and allowing me to finally understand the brain mechanisms. Confident I will be free soon from flour too ✨💫 Thank you Susan and great news you will be writing the other books too, especially the rezoom one, can’t wait to read it 🦋

Congratulations on the books!!! Your hair looks beautiful. Thank you very much. I tell everyone about Brightline, what has done for me and what it can do for them.

    Thank you Susan. You constantly inspire me like no one else. I am so happy and thankful to be a part of this amazing BLE journey with you and the whole tribe. Thanks for the encouragement to keep on track no matter what comes my way.

    So inspirational Susan. Thank you for the “live full on” motivation. I’ve so enjoyed your program and I know in my soul, that because I’m learning to look beyond my food, and focus in stead on life (!), that I too will see new direction in my life.

    I’m delighted with your continued success and I love BLE. However, I was jolted by your comment that “those other BLE recipe books are all full of sugar”. I have followed Katie’s Bright Line Cooking since she was a Boot Camper with me. I know she had long conversations with your team about coming alongside with her recipes but you decided against the idea. She has given them free for years and I’ve found them really helpful. I understand you have to protect your brand but here was a talented loyal person who could’ve done a good job and I’m surprised at your lack of generosity and your sweeping damnation.

      Hi Rose,
      At first my team and I weren’t sure whether you were talking about Plat-Based Katie Mae or Katie’s Bright Kitchen, but I think I’ve figured out that you’re referring to the latter.
      Either way, both Katies do a great job of making delicious BLE recipes with no sugar or flour. I apologize that in my frustration with the many, many people selling fake BLE stuff on Amazon I failed to mention that there are several BLE-friendly chefs and cooks putting out helpful BLE recipes on their own websites and doing a careful job not to pretend that they’re offering official BLE materials. It’s true. Thank you for pointing that out.
      The recipes for the BLE cookbook have been sourced from Bright Lifers in order to represent the range of ways of preparing food that people in our tribe practice. Alas, the Katie that you’re referencing, according to her very own website, isn’t representative of the majority of our population. She writes, “How much food flexibility our brains can tolerate depends entirely on our Susceptibility Score. I’m a big believer in this metric. I’m a 7 on the scale, and as a mid-ranger I can be successful with slightly looser guidelines, such as the one-plate-rule rather than weighing and measuring, and I do fine with certain “grey area” foods and beverages because I have learned where my own tolerance is and figured out where my own personal boundaries need to be.” Her recipes are far sexier, on average, than will work for people who are higher on the scale. We discussed working together and it just wasn’t a fit. And, in the last analysis, from a conceptual standpoint, sourcing the recipes from the thousands of Bright Lifers working the program, rather than any one individual, made the most sense.
      Thank you for your concerns and triggering me to write this comment, as I do very much want to say THANK YOU to both Plant-Based Katie Mae and Katie’s Bright Kitchen for their long-standing endorsement and all they’ve done to put BLE-friendly recipes into the world.
      With love,

    Susan… I have been following you for four years., do not do BLE and have commented on many of your vlogs! I was born health conscious, so not over weight, but a 6 on your susceptibility scale.
    I paid for and down loaded the 14 day challenge… but never did it!
    The time has come…and I am going to finally do it… because of your vlog today. It is time to become that person I truly am capable of being…

    Today is day 14 of my fourteen day chaĺlenge. I could not have done this without doing the challenge and the daily video support and your weekly vlogs. Will confirm tomorrow, but down nearly 8 lbs.

    Dear Susan, Congratulations on having 3 more books to publish! You are amazing! I can’t wait to see the cookbook.
    Thank you so much for the message towards the end of the video. Those words really spoke to me. I have just completed the RBRZ course and have been going pretty strong with my lines. Much of what I have been doing in the past 10 years or a little more has been I think to numb my feelings, to be invisible, to just go with the flow of what is around me and not do what maybe I can do or what I was meant to do. Your words really hit my core today! Thank you. With being freer from the numbing affects of the food, and a little more courage from RBRZ, I feel more ready for the challenge of what I might be able to do. I know the journey will still be winding, but I believe it is time to shake off and do more! Thank you again!

    Thank you Susan – I’ve only been back on the BLE wagon for a couple of months, but already I am seeing and experiencing all the beautiful benefits that come from being more present in the world. I needed this today as tomorrow I fly off on my first overseas trip for work since I started weighing and measuring my food again. I really desire to remain clean with my food whilst I’m away because I know I am ultimately much happier and able to be of service in the world at my fullest capacity. I look forward to the books you have coming out in future!
