Wishing you love, joy and sparkle…
…and a Happy, Healthy New Year with YOU in the equation!
It’s been quite a year at In the Equation. Last January, I had the opportunity to share my transformation story on NBC TV’s The Biggest Loser, and our community instantly grew. Many of you reached out for help and each one of your stories has touched me.
Throughout the year, I met many more of you at speeches in Minnesota and in Maine, and conversed online with others from across the country — from Nantucket, to Tennessee, to Texas, to California. We all share the goal of putting ourselves in the equation — ensuring our health, happiness, and well-being. We are learning that by taking care of ourselves, we are also better for others in our lives.
Today, I want you to know that you have touched me. I am grateful for you. YOU matter! This is my personal wish for you this season…
May you experience love, joy and peace in your heart this holiday.
May your days and nights be filled with the season’s twinkle and sparkle.
May you feel connected to others — especially if you are experiencing loss or feeling alone.
I wish for you a gentleness with yourself — including self-care and compassion.
And, most of all, I wish you hope, health and happiness in 2016!
Love, Lori – In the Equation
Thank you for being brave enough to share your personal stories and struggles. Thank you for supporting my ongoing journey and entrusting me with yours. We now have an incredible and growing In the Equation community — on the blog, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. So, today, in the spirit of the holiday, do me a favor: Besides being gentle and kind to yourself, pass it on.
Consider doing one random act of kindness — completely unsolicited — for someone in your life or for a complete stranger and note how it feels. If you know someone who is living out of their equation and in need of support, please pass on the blog, share the Facebook page, or connect with me here.
I wish you the happiest of holidays, peeps. Cheers to a 2016 with you right smack dab in the center of your equation! Click here to see our official holiday card. Yes that’s me on top of the mountain!
