And another thing

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Congratulations to all of the Winter 2011-1 5% Weight Loss Challenge winners (and losers!) for having lost 1250 pounds as a team. This value shows the power of persistence. To those continuing, a hearty hurray extols my feelings. Unfortunately I will not be continuing with the 5% club this summer as my computer time has and will continue to be limited. I will always be a Teddy Bear at heart and I am especially proud of a second place overall finish as this team several challenges ago was trailing by a wide margin. So, no offence intended to all of my SP friend when I shout out a Go Teddy Bears chant.

My absence does not construe defeat; rather a hiatus from the challenges. I will probably be back for the fall challenge when things seem to return to normal, whatever that means. I wish you all the best and hope your summer is a great one.

Make today special as it truly deserves to be. Happy Mother’s day to those participating and those whom are not. It takes a lot to make the choice each and every day. Remember, we all have to choose to live.

Think it. Know it. Do it.

Be at Peace

    Vince, you will be missed during the summer challenge but I understand about the need to take a hiatus. Thank you for all you have done as a leader of the Teddy Bear team. I have really loved your write ups about the destinations. I really enjoy and am encouraged by your thought provoking blogs, as well, and I hope as your schedule allows you'll still have time for them occasionally.

    Have a great summer and keep on track to be the most fit and healthy you can be. It's a choice and It's worth whatever it takes.

    Your fellow Teddy Bear,
