Just A Quick, Reflective ‘Hello’

Standing outside the State Capitol Building with the "tribute" given to me during the legislative portion of the Governor's Fitness Awards program.

As I drove to work from Mr. B’s house today, I reflected on yesterday — and all the points leading up to it. I am moved beyond belief by the amount of support, encouragement and inspiration that has gotten me to where I am. If you think you want to do this alone, I would encourage you to reach out to someone — anyone — and allow them to be part of your journey with you.

I kept my weight-loss efforts a secret for some time in the beginning. It worked OK for me. But, once I opened up the window, and then the door, to my experiences, my journey has improved and grown 1,000-fold. Thank you ALL for being part of this with me. My story is so much better because of every single one of you.

I promise a much more in-depth post about the Governor’s Fitness Awards and my time spent with the other honorees yesterday. But I still have a lot of reflecting to do. Until then, I remain utterly grateful for all of you for letting me share my story — the good parts and the bad parts — and for offering support, encouragement and a friendly dose of reality when it’s needed.

Ford Field

Our "Fitness Fancy" banquet was at Ford Field. Mr. B and I took some time to walk around the building before the event started. I share this picture only because I'm very proud of the strength I see in my calves. I used to be ashamed of their size; I now embrace their strength and power.

  1. I remember when you called me to say that you had joined Weight Watchers. I am in awe of how far you have come since that day!
