From fear & dread to anticipation and love…of my mountain

The day I found my inner strength and became unstoppable.

Lori-obergmountainbootcamp2-bethprobstI’ve been reading past blogs, thinking and journaling about my personal transformation start four years ago this month. It seems that it was four years ago this week that I conquered Oberg Mountain for the third (of four times) during weight-loss boot camp, and in the climb found an inner strength to push through immense pain to reach new heights.

In the process, I found a new confidence that I can do anything I set my mind to. It was also this week that I fell in love with climbing mountains for cardio exercise. Go figure!

As I read through my daily blogs during my weight-loss boot camp from Nov. and Dec. 2010, I see the internal transformation taking hold inside of me.Lori-obergmountain-bootcamp-bethprobst I couldn’t see it then, but it is on beautiful display now. What a gift! What a lucky girl to have found the courage and the strength to push past intense fear of the unknown, pain and internal self-doubt to take myself to new limits. Wow! Today, I am grateful and I lorischaefer-before&after-mountaintopwant this for everyone.

I want to share a few of the short daily blogs from the second week of my transformation start in weight-loss boot camp. I remember it like it was yesterday! I lost 21 pounds and more inches than I can remember in 12 days in weight-loss boot camp, but I gained so much more! And guess what I get to do today on the North Shore of Lake Superior to celebrate – climb my Oberg Mountain 9for about the 70+ time).
