    Thank you for being so "real" and sharing your emotions with us. You're speaking for many of us who don't feel healthy in mind, body and spirit. I'm so sorry for all the tragedy that you had in your life this past year. I pray that you and your family have a happier and healthier year ahead. Hugs :)

    Awww Fiona! Thank you for being so honest. I think it's important to know that this is a life journey and that we are all going to get tripped up sometimes, but the important thing is to make changes to bring you back to a healthy place.

    Fiona. I am so sorry for the year you have had. I'm from Denver and I'd heard about both of those horrible tragedies and it was heartbreaking. Hugs to you!

    I know what you mean about the wine. I'm guilty of not being able to drink just one glass. I usually only buy one bottle at a time (which is a huge pain in the ass in Utah) because I can't control myself.

    Have a great weekend!

    What a raw and real vlog. Hugs to you, Fiona. Check out Louise Hay "You Can Heal Your Life". It is amazing.

    Depression is a hard thing to battle by yourself. It is a good thing, a sign of strength, to seek some help. In the end it often impacts many areas of your life.

    Good wishes and good health to you for the rest of the year

    Hey you~
    I've been on a bit of hiatus in the blog world, but I'm still reading and watching. I wanted to break my silence and tell you how much I admired this video, your honesty and authenticity.

    I needed it today~

    I just watched your vlog, and it is as if you and I have written/vlogged what is essentially the same post at the same time. My heart goes out to you with all of the memories from the past year, and with the struggles of now living with them. I understand more than you know.

    I'm here if you ever need an extra shoulder to lean on!

    U should give Tissue warning with those HUGS to u Its certainly hard to get over lost loved ones. Eventually the sad memories get taken over by those happy times you had together. YOU KNOW they would rather have you think of those.

    I lost my Dear Grandmother about 3+ yrs ago who was more like a best friend and a mother to me. I miss her with every minute of my day and breathe I take. It takes a while but soon those cries are less often and then will turn to laughter from the "remember the fun time stories" you will tell.

    Oh Fiona, I so want to drive down and give you a huge hug right now! Thank you for sharing all of that with us, I can't imagine how painful it must be to relieve your grief again. I wish the best for you on your journey to fitness and health, I hope that it helps your not only with your body, but your spirit as well.

    You had a very long year! I wish I was there to give you a big hug. Terrible senseless tragedies. You have nothing to feel guilty about. Live for today and your family. I felt guilty for a while after an obese co worker died from her weight issues. I wished that I had taken her out during lunch to walk around the track. You can not feel like you could have prevented these awful accidents.

    ...try giving up the diet cola again. I know it is tough. But, there is something awful in diet pop!!
