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.
