Someone at work told me I am an inspiration. Me? Really? I am a children's pastor at a pretty large church with a school. I know lots of my fellow employees and church members are asking me what I am doing (I always tell them about Sparkpeople). I just hadn't thought of that as inspirational. I am humbled at the thought that me going from obese to "normal" would impact the life of anyone else.

But then I thought, I really am proud of the journey I am on. I am proud of where I have been and where I am going. I know that I will get to my goal weight. The reason I know that is because I believe in myself and I know that I will not give up. I realized that I inspire myself. Every day that I make good food and fitness choices, I am sculpting not only my body, but also who I want to be...who I am.
