It's been four months since I started with the "weight loss challenge group" after working out on my own since last July. I must say it has been quite a journey so far, at times hard and exhausting. I have gained much knowledge in many facets like: nutritional, physical, and emotional.
It is amazing how emotions play a role in this journey and it is not only doing diet and exercise but also understanding the whole process and accepting that this is a new lifestyle. Even during the journey there are many adjustments to be made as your body and mind changes.
Personally, I'm glad I was given this opportunity to be part of this group. I really don't think I would have been able to have done what I have done so far without the support of this group beside the support of my husband and family. There are days that I just want to give up but my girls, as I call them, (Robin, Kat, Diane T., Diane P., Lara, Mara, Ruthie, and Zoe) won't let me.
We support and encourage one another and cheer every single milestone as small as it might seem. #KillerKetsy (our trainer) and #LittleTaffyD (our co-trainer) are right there too. I have cried many of times on both their shoulders and get re-charged afterwards. They don't let us give up and for that we love them. Our hard work has paid off. All of us have had excellent results. It has been worth all the tears, the sweat, and the pain that we have shared.
