I am not all that smart, but I know how to make my co-workers whither with my work ethic. My Dad was the Comptroller of the Army and taught me morals and ethics...he and his #2 fought the good fight to be the first in & last to leave the office.
So I know how to work hard, but I also learned from my Mom how to put everyone else first & me last. So, after a failed 35-year marriage, I bought a home, made the move and sat in a sad-place for some months. In January, I looked for a gym & found an amazing gym with 5 free personal training sessions. They helped me make a plan, recorded my stats & followed up. Today I had my final (FREE) appointment.
Kira, my favorite trainer said--I am like the dream-come-true client. I have lost 13 lbs, inches everywhere, grew muscle, shrunk fat....but then asked if I would send her a testimony. In 60 years, I have NEVER had success in the nurturing ME field. NOT EVER. So tonight at the gym, I was talking to a gal who was struggling with her workout. She told me that she HATES working out, thinks of every excuse to NOT go, hasn't lost any weight in 6 months. I realized that unloading my bad relationship was the beginning of my new awesome life! I am especially grateful to Spark People for giving me a path to healthy, supportive relationships! You all ROCK!
