I seem to have been at for such a long time. I have had moments of clarity about my weight, my eating habits and about the things that motivate me. I have learned many new things about taking care of myself by eating healthy, balanced meals and makig fitness a part of my life. I also discovered that I give up on me long before others and I am harder on me than others. I have come to understand that it is not a choice that I have as to whether or not I want to be here. It has become a matter of life that I remain here and continue to take this journey one step at a time. There is no possible success for me if I turn back or stop. I can give in, give up or give it my all.

This will not be easy. But I will not give up.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Fall? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early September. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Summer Fitness Tune up, Hopscotch and Bowling. I hope that you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Fall challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
