    Hi Andy!

    First thank you so much for taking the time to drop me such a supportive and kind note! Yay for the pittie lovers of the world, and better yet the rescuers! I feel stronger and more empowered than I have ever felt in my life. I know in my heart that for me the only way to overcome was to pull myself up and fight like hell to look the ghosts of the past square in the face, figure out the power they held over me and disarm them one by one. I will continue the fight, and your encouraging words mean so much, thank you for them Andy!

    Hi Lori,
    I’m a rescue pit bull lover. Found your story on Lucky Dog Rescue page. I am a man who will voice my opinion to anyone, cut down a bully no matter how big and speak in front of a thousand people on a minute notice. Now that you know me, let me tell you that I deeply admire your courage. Eating disorders/behavior is very complex. You may not have reached your weight and “lifestyle” goal yet but you will! In your series of photos you are exuding a confidence like an underdog fighter gaining points, and strength, winning over the crowd as he is pummeling his opponent in each successive round. When you tire, stumble or fall…….GET UP! Don’t give up!
    Squaring off with your deepest fears and confronting your insecurities takes guts. How can any reaction (real or imagined) from the retail associate in the running shoe store even compare?!?
    My hat is off to you!
