I’ve been MEGA inspired

My inspiration changes from moment to moment and that’s what keeps me going. That’s the great thing about inspiration, it doesn’t have to be just one thing or person.


I must share, I’ve been inspired by a special person in my life: Patsy! I will keep this short and sweet because words will never be able to express the full emotion.

I see Patsy working really hard! She’s been working on her fitness and has made some positive life changes over the years. But the thing that really got me? On Sunday, Willie and I were on our way to the grocery store and we saw her walking. I joked to Willie that she probably has already walked 4 miles at that point. I saw her on the way out of the store and she was still walking! And I’m pretty sure she had done a lot of walking that week too!

I later found out on Facebook that she walked 7 miles that day! I was really proud of her. I feel weird saying that because my opinion doesn’t mean that much. She has been working really hard and she has lost 20 pounds since March which is amazing. She’s a really special person in my life. She’s got a warm heart and friendly smile. She’s making changes in her life and being a better person every day! It’s inspiring to me to see people go after something they want! There’s nothing better than trying.

I just wanted to share a little bit of my inspiration with you. Great job Patsy!

I sometimes wonder why Willie and I are getting so much praise for losing weight.  Our weight loss is not really a big deal to us.  It was something that we had to do, wanted to do and did!  It’s really nothing special to us.  I wanted to stop feeling sorry for myself.  I wanted to stop the weird stares we got when walking in a store.  I wanted to stop the struggle of finding the clothes I wanted to wear but couldn’t.  I wanted to just do something different. I wanted to lose weight before, but all attempts failed.…

Believe in the better version of you

Believe in the better version of you

I was thinking about all the changes that have occurred in my life over the past three years.  I am a much different person than I was back then and I feel like I’ve made a lot of changes for the better.  There are things that I still struggle with, but for the most part I know I’m definitely a healthier, happier and focused person that I was before. I am still the same person, but I’m just a better version of myself. I struggled with depression.  I’m not afraid or ashamed to admit it.  I had a really horrible…
