Over the past week a few people have told me that I have been inspirational to them and I can’t even begin to tell you how great it feels to hear that. This started out as just a way for me to make myself accountable for my own actions, I never expected this journey to reach so many people and I definitely didn’t expect such an overwhelming outpour of support and love from friends, family and strangers. I feel like I’m not doing this alone, I have a sea of supporters there for me while I go through this transformation. That is an amazing feeling and an even better feeling is knowing that this has inspired others. You guys are the best and I mean that.
I have an incredibly inspiring person in my life who has also been on a mission to get healthy and let me tell you…she’s killing it. I mean talk about inspiration, it’s one thing to talk about it , it’s another to see someone transform before your eyes (I’m hoping I start transforming soon too…it’s still early lol). I hope to share her story soon, or maybe have her guest blog? We’ll see…first I have to ask!
In the meantime I have come across a few incredibly inspiring stories that I thought I would share.
This first one has made the rounds on Facebook so you may have already seen it but it’s too good not to share. I found this story about a military wife especially inspirational since I have been there, let me tell you it’s not easy being on your own when your spouse deploys, especially when you have kids. To do that and lose a life changing amount of weight is incredible, this woman is just amazing.
This second link has a ton of helpful tips, I am obviously not following all of them but it has some great ideas. Check it out :)
And finally this last video was shared by a good friend on Facebook, it actually made me tear up a little. This guy is no joke, they should play this video at gyms. If you only have time to click on one link this is the one to click on!
