A "From Me to Oprah" Farewell

As one year ends and another begins, I’m taking this opportunity to say goodbye to my “From Me to Oprah” blog posts that began 12 months ago on The ZIED GUIDE. In all honesty, I have no idea if Oprah read all, or even one, of these posts. While they were addressed to Oprah herself, they were meant for anyone who, at one point or another, has struggled with–or continues to struggle with– weight, size, or body image. I do hope that those of you who have read any or all of the posts felt inspired and motivated to take action to change the way you eat, move, or live, or the way you think and feel about yourself. If you did–or if you even disagreed with anything I’ve said–I would love to hear your thoughts, so please post a comment below.

I truly loved writing these posts. You’ll find them scattered throughout The ZIED GUIDE, so please search “From Me to Oprah” on my Blog page if you want to check some or all of them out. Here’s a sampling of some topics I tackled in the posts:

Talking About the “O” Word

Tips for Managing Weight and Life

What’s Your Bikini?

Lost Weight? 5 Ways to Keep it Off for Good

Respect Yourself!

Beyond the Biggest Loser: Thoughts About Long Term Weight Management

While I will continue to patiently wait for Oprah to call, text, or email me, I truly look forward to a continued dialog with loyal ZIED GUIDE readers and new ones alike during the New Year. Please keep those comments and questions coming in 2011! And please don’t forget to sign up to receive my free e-newsletter, The ZIED GUIDE, on the home page (right side) of– a brand new one will be out on 1/3/11.

I hope you make 2011 a year to take better care of and nourish your body and mind, to not be so hard on yourself, and to pay it forward by being more positive when you refer to, interact or talk with, and treat others.
