Well, it came and now it has gone.This past Saturday, May 18th, I was asked to share my journey of weight loss with a church women's ministry group.I had worked hard and long on just the right words, just the right way, handouts, etc., in order to do the best job that I could.This is my very first "speaking" that I've ever done in front of a group of people.Seems as though I have always sang in front of people since I was a vocal performance music major in college, but I have never given any speeches.This was completely new for me.The highlight of the day was to have a fellow Spark People person come and attend the meeting.I finally got to meet a Spark People in person.LaShonda (PENNYSAVER 2) was there with her husband.I was so excited to see her! I had anticipated it every day since the time she told me that they would be able to come.The ladies group said I did a good job and I thank them for that complement.I still have some more weight to lose according to my doctors, but I will continue on with "my plan" as I have been doing.
Thank all of you who prayed for me and kept me in your thoughts about this "sharing".I would not be able to succeed on any of this journey, had it not been for all of you and the support and kind and uplifting words that you have always sent my way.
PENNYSAVER2 took some pictures of us together, and as soon as I can get my daughter to put them on the Spark, I will share them with you.
"Hold on to my arm & let's journey together!"
Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!
