Never Give Up!
Giveaway Closed! Congratulations to Mendie!
I can't believe that it has been 11 weeks since that fateful day when I was told I am obese. Wait, let me change that - I "was" obese but now after weeks of hard work I am now overweight. Although I have a long way to go before I am in the "normal' range, I celebrate the fact that as of last Monday I've lost 25 pounds. And tomorrow I am sure I will be down at least another 2 pounds. If you've been following my blog, you know that I have been quite focused on my journey to healthy living. And it has been a journey. It started early last year, well, really in 2008 but this time I've been committed to serious change and things are happening for me.
I've been posting about my progress here, on twitter and on facebook. Both to keep myself accountable but also to encourage others to get out there and exercise. And I am happy to say that I've received so many emails and notes encouraging me to keep going and also letting me know that I've played a role in motivating others to exercise. I love this! One of my long time blogging friends Kristen of Kristen's Custom Creations reached out to me the other day because she designed a piece of jewelry just for me. Inspired by my commitment and journey to healthy living she sent me this "Never Give Up" necklace. I LOVE IT!
And the best part is wearing this necklace will always remind me to "Never Give Up" no matter how difficult things get. In addition to being a creative inspiration for Kristen she also purchased EA SPORTS Active after watching all of my progress. That to me is what this is all about. Giving and receiving encouragement and motivation. I am so happy that I have so many people that are supporting me.
Thank you so much Kristen. Your support means the world to me!
