My healthiness journey started in Sept 2010 when I saw a picture of myself and didn't recognize the girl staring back at me. I joined Weight Watchers and started running. This is my story - I have lost 70 pounds, run 2 marathons and gained a new appreciation for what my body can do! Join me on this journey, won't you?
I want to interrupt the regular scheduled programming to bring you this….
At Sugarland Concert - 5/7/2011
I normally would have gone in and replied to each and everyone of your comments – I usually do that by the way. I am not that “popular” so I do have time to read and respond to most comments! But, honestly I don’t know if people know when I respond to their comments and I really wanted to be sure you all saw this today.
I was totally blown away by the amazing things people had to say in the comments here on the blog and the comments on Facebook. I knew I was surrounded by amazing people – but wow, you guys sure reminded me in a big way over the last 24 hours.
I don’t know that I will ever be able to effectively articulate what the support and encouragement means to me. There were days that the comments, words of wisdom, etc were exactly what I needed to stay focused or GET focused. I thought of so many of you when I would try and talk myself OUT of a workout or a run. Your faces, words and hearts reminded me what I needed to do and how good I would feel about it when it was done.
I am still getting used to the idea that I could be an inspiration to someone else. It is the best compliment that I have received and I hope to continue to inspire people and be inspired by the many wonderful people in my life.
This healthiness journey is a lifelong commitment that I have made to myself, my girls, my husband and my family and friends. I plan on being around a long time to enjoy all of you!
