Is this not THE COOLEST kudos for my achievements so far..?!
It's not widely known that I've been a member of The Biggest Loser Club in the past three years. In fact, it's one of my biggest best-kept secrets - up until now!!!
Being a member of The Club has definitely changed my life. I initially signed up for just a few weeks to see if it would help, and three years later, I'm really proud to be one of the longest serving members, and have the results to go with it!
Having no idea if the program would work at all (and actually believing I'd fail within the first week) - it surprises the hell out of me that I've been able to come this far - just eating and exercising!!! That's what happens when you find a tool that works for you I guess?! The online diary (and it's extensive database of foods), the basic menu (to help me re-learn how to eat) and ofcourse, the HUGE amount of awesome support, understanding and camaraderie in the forums (without them, I'd have been lost!) - it's the combination that helped me get the momentum I needed to make the first initial changes, and then ride each kilo after kilo out thereafter...
The Biggest Loser Club recently launched their new Online Member Meetings - and as one segment of the program, Commando Steve gives a 'shout out' to acknowledge the awesomeness of a few of the BLC members each week. Being given this acknowledgment in just its second week, from the team at BLC and, ofcourse, the hunky Commando himself, is extremely humbling - and a HUGE motivator to keep me going! [... and I really can't wait for him to "celebrate me" again when I reach goal, hahahaha!]
Never thought in a million years I'd be referred to as a "Little Lady" - that was just the icing on the cake, and I don't believe anyone would be able to wipe the smile off my face that I've been sporting since it aired on Monday!!!!
Thank you to BLC and all the incredible forum friends I've made through there - your support is invaluable and I would NOT have come this far without you!! I have nothing but heartfelt gratitude for your generosity, enthusiasm and belief - I stopped feeling "alone" when I found understanding in other people's goals and hurts too - and THAT has always been the difference...
Thank you.. always!
