September

Wow, it's already September. Where has the year gone? Well, life over the past couple of weeks has been great. I found the perfect workout...Swimming...33 laps equals one half mile and I get a huge thrill when I complete that final lap. My goal is a full mile, a whopping 66 laps. Not quite there but I will be soon. Loving the gym as the weight steadily comes off. Finally in the 240's and it feels great! Hopeful, I will zip through the 40's as fast as I did 50's.

During a recent conversation with a friend he reminded me, "it doesn't matter how many times you fall it's all about what you do afterwards." Then he said "Christiann, you have gotten up more times than most, You've experienced things people couldn't even imagine." Weight has held me back for so long that I started missing out on life. I recently realized that I have a so much to offer the world, So watch out world, because here comes the new and improved version. So for all you folks who allow my weight to be an barrier, allow me to introduce myself!

I know I am still overweight, but losing the last 20 lbs has lifted my spirits and my attitude has started to change. I walk with my shoulders back and my head high. I'm less inclined to look towards the ground and avoid eye contact. You guess it, I love to command attention, but inside I second guess myself and insecurity rears its ugly head, but not anymore!

Life feels great my outlook changes daily. I'm feeling renew and can't wait to experience what the future holds. Grateful I am!
