My Fitness North 2 Finale
Wow, what a journey this has been these past two weeks! A journey to the heart, to the head, and to better health. After just two weeks here, I feel stronger and healthier inside and out. There is no question that I will be successful as I continue on the path to my goal. This is my time. The resolve is incredibly strong.
Today, our final day on the Fitness North campus at Surfside, we awoke early to weigh in and get our two weeks results. I lost 21 lbs in 12 days, plus some inches (forgot exact number) and lowered my % of body fat by a fairly significant margin. More importantly, I pushed myself to levels I didn’t think were possible and gained an inner strength and confidence that had been missing for some time.
Everyone in our group did extremely well on the hard numbers, but it is the journey itself and the fact that we have all pushed way past what we thought we were capable of that is of greatest significance. The knowledge I gained about the nutritional side of the equation is certainly worth noting, but even better, I leave knowing that if I follow the plan/path set out for me I will have guaranteed success in reaching my weight loss goals and likely in one year.
We spent the day just reflecting and relaxing and discussing re-entry into our “real lives.” The support and camaraderie is unbelievable in our Fitness North family. I am so excited to celebrate the completion of this part of the journey tonight with dinner out at Coho Cafe — where we get to have a glass of wine (yeah!) — and then tomorrow we all head back to reality. But for now, we are savoring the final day of Fitness North on campus experience. I am grateful to O’Neal and Sheryl, Leif and Jay and all of my FN #2 participants as well as all of you who have read the blog and commented, or sent cards, notes, emails of encouragement.
Thank you ALL for your support. I will do some reflecting in the days ahead before I close out this blog. I just had to email in the moment to share my initial results and express my gratitude for your support in this journey.
You are amazing! Thank you for your love and support.
